This program (as all Doctor Nchekwube’s therapeutic programs) addresses mind, body, and spirit. His goal is to address the whole person and return you to a state of Balance and Wellness!
NAD INTRAVENOUS THERAPY is available for the treatment of Age-Related Decline, Diminution of Wellbeing, Fatigue, Depression, and most fascinatingly, Drug Addiction!
Intravenous administration of NAD is one of the most direct ways of controlling and ablating Cravings from drug addiction in a short period of time- permanently! For most addictive drugs, including alcohol, it takes about 10 to 13 days to permanently achieve detoxification.
After treatment; the individual would experience increased energy, increased clarity of mind, better focus, increased motivation and most importantly, no urge or strange cravings for alcohol or drugs!
Additionally, NAD has been shown to reduce signs of aging in the average person. Some individuals use NAD Intravenous Therapy for improvement in their overall health or just to give their life a boost; the proverbial joie de vivre!
SO WHAT IS NAD?
NAD+ is the name used in various scientific literature for a cellular compound called NICOTINAMIDE ADENINE DINUCLEOTIDE (NAD). Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is a metabolic coenzyme. It functions in the structuring, repairing, and remodeling each cell in the human body. These coenzymes require constant replacement in the body. However; stress, many drugs, and alcohol abuse causes the human brain to reorganize, especially at the cellular level. A process known as neuroadaptation is the direct cause of addiction-related brain damage and or loss of neurotransmitters. Intravenous therapy with NAD has been shown to replenish drained coenzymes and aid in the restoration of the depleted brain.
NAD+ is an ubiquitous molecule found in every cell in the body. It is essential to life. NAD helps transfer energy from our foods to vital cell functions in the human body. NAD is needed by human beings to “turn off” genes which increase degenerative changes in the aging processes. With aging, NAD+ levels decline. As we age, the mitochondria’s function and number become impaired, resulting in fewer mitochondria. The loss of function and number of mitochondria lead to many of the physical symptoms and some of the diseases observed in aging.

INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE ADDICTION PROGRAM (IMAP)
DETOX PATIENTS AND RETURN THEM TO WHOLENESS AND A NORMAL LIFE USING, AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, A NATURAL & HOLISTIC APPROACH…DETOX & RECOVERY THROUGH TREATING THE MIND, BODY, & SPIRIT.
The major part of treating patients with drug addiction, mood disorders, fatigue, and chronic diseases using Integrative Medicine; is looking for the underlying conditions in the body that contribute to their development. Some of the underlying causes include: major life stresses, food sensitivities, gluten intolerance, adrenal and thyroid imbalances, malabsorption, neurotransmitter deficiency, and NAD deficiency. These conditions can be managed mostly with nutritional supplementation, and mind body therapies.
The patient is treated with intravenous NAD and nutraceuticals, including amino acids; based on customized protocols for a 10 day period.
This treatment improves brain function due to higher levels of Intracellular Energy and increased production of neurotransmitters; such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Milder withdrawal symptoms are experienced by most people for the first two or three days with the therapy. Generally, the withdrawal symptoms are reduced by 70-80%, when compared to others who go through it without this therapy. After three to five days of natural therapies and as withdrawal symptoms disappear – cravings subside and clarity of mind is achieved!
THE PROCESS OF NAD INTRAVENOUS THERAPY
The NAD intravenous therapy is individualized for each patient and it varies from day to day. On each day of the treatment an IV line is established. In a comfortable lounge-like environment; the patient relaxes in a chair, while the intravenous formulation slowly infuses through the vein. While the NAD infuses; the patient may nap, read, watch television, eat healthy medicinal foods, or meditate in a comfortable easy-chair.
The discomfort of withdrawal and cravings subsides quickly and remains controlled. The fourth and eighth day marks when the average patient reports feelings of tremendous mental clarity and improved sense of wellbeing. Generally NAD infusions are well tolerated. Some of the minor side effects often disappear at the termination of the infusion. Major physical symptoms of the withdrawal from addictions are resolved with the natural treatment using NAD. It is, however, recommended that the full protocol be completed in order to make a clean break from the physical symptoms of addiction.
The full protocol addresses the whole individual; their mind, body, and spirit; as all of these need to be addressed for a complete recovery & healthy life!
