IV Drip Supplemental Therapy
IV Drip Therapy— How It Works
IV drip therapy–also referred to as IV nutrient therapy, IV therapy, or IV nutrition therapy—can be quite versatile. There are many vitamins and nutrients that can be combined to address a specific health concern, and combinations aimed at boosting overall health.
Drip therapy sessions can range from half an hour, or up to five or six hours, depending on the treatment. It may be suggested when treating chronic conditions that an individual complete a series of sessions. For others, IV drip therapy can be used as a general health and energy boost to hydrate and revitalize the mind and body.
NAD IV Therapy and Addiction
NAD IV therapy is one of the most popular treatments available and some very promising research in regards to treating substance abuse and addiction. NAD, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a naturally occurring enzyme in the body that helps us produce energy. NAD converts energy we get from food into cellular energy. When a person habitually abuses drugs and alcohol, their natural NAD supply becomes depleted. When NAD is depleted, it is more difficult for the body to convert food into energy. Because of this, NAD IV therapy can be an excellent, supportive co-therapy during addiction treatment.
A study on NAD+ and substance abuse states, “Research in NAD+ has been reinvigorated by recent findings that components of NAD+ metabolism and NAD-dependent enzymes can influence major signaling processes associated with the neurobiology of addiction. These studies implicate raising intracellular NAD+ levels as a potential target for managing and treating addictive behavior and reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms in patients with food addiction and/or substance abuse.”
