New in 2019 at Springfield Wellness Center: The inaugural WE (Wellness Empowerment) meeting took place on Tuesday, January 8th from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
WE has been designed specifically to meet the needs of the local SWC alumni members who have expressed the interest and desire to participate in a support group in contrast to the old meeting paradigm.
The WE meeting was developed as a departure from the traditional 12-step model. Springfield Wellness Center wants to provide a safe, trusting environment for alumni to meet as a group for the personal benefits that come from group participation, such as social / emotional support, building of hope and confidence, and the exchange of ideas and energy. There is strength in numbers!
Every meeting will be held from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. throughout the year. Please join us and help us with this new meeting design so that it can be something that everyone can benefit from and look forward to. Alone, I can do so little; together, WE can do so much. After all, it’s not a ME world; it’s a WE world.

Words of Satisfaction
When they put the IV in me, it was such an incredible state of wellbeing but with energy. In my adult life, I have never felt like that on my own. And then, Paula, Dr. Mestayer, and the nurses would say, "How is the craving?" I said, "I haven't had one inkling of a craving whatsoever." It vanished in 20 minutes of the first IV. So I'm telling you that it worked immediately!

The first two days were long but positive. The third day, he was like "I don't want pills anymore. I have no desire." And then day four, I could see his personality coming back. He's positive. He's himself. He's back. It's just amazing. Even more focused than before. More positive vibes. Just the energy is amazing. It works!
Day two, no more cravings. I could feel my attitude changing. I could feel myself looking towards the future: what I was going to do to resolve everything that I've been going through with relationships. Day three, the light came on and everything became so clear. Day four, I felt like I could really start reading. I started feeling like I could start focusing, again. Day 5, by that point, I felt like my spirit was new. Everything was new. From there, everything just went up!
I woke up the fourth morning, and everything was brighter. I had all my energy back. The biggest part with me is I don't have cravings anymore. It's more of a PTSD thing. One thing I had for seven years was nightmares every night. And now, after my third or fourth day treatment, my nightmares are gone. I come and get my boosters when I start losing sleep, and I'll be good for 28-30 days and start all over. It's been a lifesaver for me.
About 11 years ago, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. I met with several doctors, and they all said the same thing that it was irreversible and very very unsuccessful in treatment. It was being treated by a Physician, and he prescribed a whole bunch of medicine with little to no effects. I had tremors constantly. I tripped - unsteady on my feet. I couldn't eat with a fork; I had to eat with a spoon. I always saw images in my peripheral vision. I didn't get much sleep. So, I just about gave up. I met with Dr. Mestayer. He took down a medical history on me. I started receiving 1000 mg of NAD. Within an hour of the treatment, my tremors stopped almost immediately. I quit stumbling. I quit drooling at night. My peripheral vision was perfect; I saw no more images in my peripheral vision. It just makes you feel wonderful. You feel younger! It's remarkable.
