When I first found out about NAD+ I was extremely skeptical. An inter venous treatment that turns back the clock??? REALLY????? I took what was being said with a pinch or three of salt and then, only because I so wished something like that to be possible, I did a lot of RESEARCH and wham! I took myself to BIONAD so fast it would make your head spin.
I won’t bore you with the scientific details but NAD+ is a natural occurring amino acid that occurs in our body and that has a huge function in the aging process. In a nutshell, if you’re young and healthy you have a lot of NAD+ in your body. If however, you’re getting on a bit, your NAD+ levels are reduced. Drug addicts and alcoholics completely deplete their bodies of NAD+ and it’s in this area where the most dramatic results can be seen.
I simply call it youth serum and I have been going in for my fix for the last five weeks. My experience was a bit like this. I had a full consultation with a doctor and I had a blood sample drawn. I was then ready for my infusion which is administered in the form of a drip straight into your bloodstream. The NAD+ infusion is different to other vitamin infusion treatments in that, it’s not vitamins or minerals, it is NAD + which works at a cellular level.
The first time I had my infusion I felt the after effects that can be expected. A bit light headed and nausea. The quicker you take it the more of these side effects you feel. The minute the infusion finished, so did any sort of discomfort. I must stress that these discomforts are MILD.
I suffer from an under active thyroid and I have battled with weight all of my life. My condition had been undiagnosed for YEARS, in fact, my family thinks that I was born with it, as I was a very overweight child and I often remember feeling tired, cold and wanting to sleep all the time. Doctor’s thyroid parameters are to broad that my tests always came back as NORMAL and it wasn’t until I was nearly bed bound that under duress my doctor prescribed me Thyroxine on a trial basis. Within a week I felt better. One of the main symptoms of my under active thyroid was what I called “the fuzzie mummy brain”. It was this where I first felt the effects of my NAD+ treatment. By the next day I could think clearly. Such a weird feeling, I was tired at night and ready to sleep but I could still think clearly. The morning after I could see the improvement in my skin, particularly in my hands. I am very lucky to have good skin, but the pores on my face have closed and texture of my skin is ever so smooth. The improvement is truly remarkable. In fact, the first thing my 17 year old junior said the day after my first infusion was ” What did you do, you look really fresh”.
I would like to make clear that Bionad makes no claims as to thyroid disorders, in fact, I was told that it did not help with thyroid. I have taken my medication dose by 25% with the help of my doctor and I continue to feel great and continue to very slowly loose weight. My theory is that as my body re generates with the help of the NAD, my thyroid is working better almost as a side effect.
The other area that I have seen vast improvement is in my arthritis. My left hand has deformed joints and although I may never be 100% better, they are at lest 60% improved and they no longer hurt.
The fact is that my energy levels are greatly improved. I no longer need to go to bed at 10pm and I wake up ready to go in the morning. I can get on with my day and I dare say, feel like I did when I was 30…
As far as addiction goes, I really don’t know a lot about it first hand. I don’t have an addictive personality, in fact, I don’t have a single member of my extended family who has addiction issues so this statement comes from someone who is extremely ignorant on the subject. What I do know is that I have seen people come in shacking and left the clinic without cravings, convinced they can beat their demon. I have had conversations with addicts who are on the other side and come in for top up infusions. They have all said the same thing…NAD+ is a miracle. When I had my last infusion, I was in the room with a former alcoholic and drug addict. I asked him why he abused….he said “to not feel the way I felt”….so in his words “after the first NAD+ I didn’t feel that way any more”….which mean that he no longer felt the need to use. Obviously, counselling must go hand in hand with NAD+ addiction treatment. But what a wonderful tool in the addiction arsenal it is!
My husband is also having the treatment but for completely different reasons. He is a type 2 diabetic. He is still not insulin dependant but when we began the treatment we knew that he was border line type 1 and that insulin was in his near future. He feels far more stable with improved energy levels. We are really looking forward to his next test result!
NAD+ means far more to me than renewed energy levels and anti ageing. For me, this treatment is an insurance policy against Dementia and mobility diseases later in life. Having small children means that I want to be well until my time comes to leave them. I don’t want to be a burden on my beautiful babies. I want them to have an elderly mother full of life who is an active grandmother. This is my version of growing on gracefully!
