The many amazing benefits of ketamine and NAD+ infusions are relatively unknown to most people. They each have positive effects for mental health, chronic pain, and many neurological conditions. Combining NAD+ infusions with ketamine can greatly improve the effectiveness and results patients can see.
NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a coenzyme central to metabolism and energy production. It is found within every living cell including in the brain. NAD+ levels decline as we age but also due to chronic illness, chronic stress, or lack of sleep. Having COVID-19 can also disrupt NAD+ levels. This decline in NAD+ is thought to contribute heavily to the aging process. Research shows that people with low levels of NAD+ are at a higher risk for developing problems related to addiction, depression, anxiety, other mental disorders, and chronic diseases. Increasing NAD+ levels can reduce oxidative damage in the brain which can lower inflammation and restore neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. Boosting NAD+ through IV infusions may increase cellular repair and energy.
Ketamine has been safely used for anesthesia for the past 40 years. It is now being used successfully as a treatment for anxiety, depression, PTSD, chronic pain conditions such as migraines, fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain as well as to enhance cognition and memory. Research shows that ketamine effects the way information travels through the brain through increasing neuroplasticity. This is the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization. Ketamine is not only a great treatment for depression, but also to improve mood, memory, cognition, and overall outlook on life. Ketamine may also be a promising treatment for dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease due to ketamine’s ability to produce new synapses in the brain. The positive effects of ketamine can be immediate, and ketamine does not have any lasting side effects like taking daily oral medications.
