Paula Norris, M.Ed., LPC, FAPA, is the founder of Springfield Wellness Center, in Springfield, Louisiana. She presents her argument for NAD as a form of treatment for addiction and other conditions.
Springfield Wellness Center pioneered NAD+ in the United States. They now train and certify physicians in providing this treatment in order to make it available to more patients in a safe and caring environment.
NAD+ has a primary role of universal electron transporter and has some important non-redox functions that are important in DNA cell repair and telomere maintenance, signalling extracellular molecules and transcription of regulating aging with the help of sirtuins.
Expert and Scientist were long time studying NAD+ therapy treatments and making a case for NAD+, as a matter of fact NAD has been used since the late 1960s as an intravenous form to progressively lessen withdrawal from different kinds of alcohol and drugs. Though the actual mechanism isn’t clearly laid out, limitations were cited and the recovery tends not to complete with IV only. In addition to the specified amino acid complex, the recovery is found proven to be more effective and lasting.
The therapy also provides a significant biological treatment for both alcohol and opiate drugs addiction. A recommended dose of 500mg or more is essential for NAD+therapy to be effective. The evidence for this same treatment is proven effective for other diseases that manifest NAD Deficiency like early diabetes mellitus, heart failure, chronic hypertension, anorexia and even some serious case of predatory behaviour that may lead to crime and violence.
Addiction and Treatment centers promise high success rates to vulnerable people that suffer from addiction or neurodegenerative diseases, even if there is no solid support from FDA regarding their methods. Testimonials from cured patients have brought a solid impact in supporting the miracle promised by our treatment Center.
