Nicotinamide riboside dinucleotide or NAD supercharges many of your body’s biological processes and can be a lifeline for people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or addiction. As a supplement, NAD also offers superior anti-aging benefits. At Hydrate Medical In Asheville, North Carolina, regenerative medicine specialist Linda Dula, DO, offers NAD therapy to help you strengthen your cells to boost energy, enhance immunity, and reduce inflammation. Call today or book an appointment online to learn about NAD therapy and how it can change your life.


What is NAD therapy?

NAD, also known as NAD+, is a coenzyme that exists in every cell of your body. It assists in metabolic reactions, and some research suggests it acts as a neurotransmitter as well. NAD mediates your calcium levels, regulates gene expression, and acts as an antioxidant, reducing inflammation-causing free radicals.

NAD is the building block of a healthy body and helps the brain, internal organs, and neurological systems function at their absolute best.

As you age and endure poor sleep, stress, an unhealthy diet, and substance abuse, your levels of NAD decline, hindering a cell’s ability to self-repair.

Restoring your levels improves cellular health and can strengthen your overall well-being. Delivery of NAD is via IV infusion.

Who should consider NAD therapy?

NAD infusion therapy can:

  • Boost energy
  • Reduce muscle inflammation
  • Slow down the signs of aging
  • Strengthen the immune system

People with chronic disorders like neurodegenerative disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, and mental health disorders like anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) benefit. NAD is also an effective therapy for those suffering from alcohol and drug addiction.

What should I expect during NAD therapy?

NAD infusion therapy is superior to oral supplementation. The infusion delivers NAD directly to your bloodstream, and delivery is possible in an effectively high dose that quickly stimulates the parts of your brain that are depressed by addiction and struggling to function optimally.

Hydrate Medical also offers NAD patches you can apply at home.

Dr. Dula oversees your NAD IV therapy. The infusion is given in combination with other high dose amino acids in customized formulas, depending on your primary goal of therapy or the type of addiction you’re trying to overcome.

You also benefit from a Hydrate Recovery infusion that contains vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, along with the NAD, to aid brain recovery and boost your overall health and energy.  

As you receive the infusion, you rest in a luxurious treatment room under the supervision of qualified staff and Dr. Dula. The lighting in the room is kept dim to facilitate relaxation. You have access to drinks, snacks, and Wi-Fi. You may store food at the clinic, use the in-office microwave, or order food as necessary during your treatment.

You need treatments that last for several hours every day for 10 days and periodically after that as needed for long-term healing.

When do I notice the results of NAD infusions?

You may start to notice a significant decrease in cravings after the first treatment and mild withdrawal symptoms from addiction, which persist for 3-4 days. You also notice an improvement in brain function almost right away.

The success of NAD therapy in halting addiction is 75-85%.
