    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Serving up my plant based, MEXI MUSHROOM BEAN CHILLI with baked potatoes yeaaaa babyyyyyyyyyy.... You know I used to avoid the basic tater in my diet (ludicrous I know!), but then I decided and maybe with the influence of my beautiful boys in the family, that the humble baked potato also deserves its place on the table and so he makes his way on there these days too. That's what balanced eating and a healthy diet is though - it’s inclusive of your favourite foods - it’s not something highly restrictive and unattainable. So my wonderful friends if potatoes are

WHAT IS NAD+ TREATMENT

Lunch breaks for nutritionists took on a whole new level this past week with the launch of NAD+ Ageless Clinics Bondi Junction. I don’t think in my time in this industry have I seen so many of us gathered in the one space for a shot of vitamins! Quite humorous really.

The treatment we all jumped on board for is an infusion of NAD+, glutathione and B12. Glutathione and B12 are administered first, followed by the NAD+.

What is NAD+ you ask?

“NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a Coenzyme compound found in every cell in your body that plays a vital role in regulating how quickly your cells age. It contributes to the transfer of energy from fatty acids and glucose to the mitochondria, which converts them to cellular energy. As we age, NAD+ levels typically decline.

Over a decade of research suggests that supplemented NAD+ may help to slow the ageing process, not only preventing cellular decay, but also helping with DNA cell repair, especially in the brain. A Harvard study with mice found that after receiving NAD+ they were marked with less insulin resistance, less inflammation, less muscle wasting. While the mice were 22 months old, the results and markers indicated the youth of 6 months post NAD+ treatment.” (agelessclinics.com.au)

How NAD+ Can Help with Addiction

While already popular in the US, the use of intravenous NAD+ and supplements that boost levels has been nothing short of ground breaking when treating addictive behaviour (including that of alcohol, opiates, amphetamine and gambling). NAD+ Therapy has been widely described as a game-changing treatment by some of the most experienced rehabilitation therapists in the world.

‘Addiction is a medical condition that alters the chemistry of the brain, therefore restoring of proper brain biochemistry is required for breaking the cycle of addiction, restoring clarity of mind, stabilizing moods, and reducing or eliminating cravings’ says Dr Jeremy Cumpston of AgelessNAD+.

‘NAD+ Therapy can help reduce the withdrawal effects in some patients by restoring the neurotransmitter balance, making cravings much less severe.’

So why on earth are a bunch of nutritionists jumping in on something that can help addiction?

Well, understanding treatment prior to prescribing to others is key. Further, whilst NAD in this instance is being specifically researched and used for addiction treatment it is also a powerful nutrient used to support and improve cellular energy and reduce cellular ageing.  That aspect was the trigger and interest for me personally. And, whilst in the company of Dr Jeremy Cumpston I learnt of his research into the ‘brain boosting’ effects of NAD+ treatment too.

“Ageless NAD+ Clinics work with a variety of clients from busy, high performing professionals who are looking to get an ‘edge’, to rehabilitation patients and those struggling with neuro- degenerative diseases. They also work closely with leading international scientists, doctors, mental health professionals, addiction and rehabs specialists, naturopaths, nutritionists, chiropractors to name a few.

‘We are proud to be providing a much needed option for treating addictions at a time when latest figures show substance abuse is effecting a wider (and older) social demographic and claiming more lives than ever before in Australia’ says Dr Jeremy Cumpston.

‘Ageless NAD+ Clinics are passionate about helping all Australians live a healthy and disease/ addiction free life. By introducing NAD+ Intravenous treatments we hope to enable clients to live a life that is free from addiction and at the same time help prevent chronic illness by helping your cells function more efficiently allowing your brain to operate at an optimum level.’

‘Offering a real alternative from using a drug (benzo’s or opiate mimics) that create a whole new set of addiction issues, combining exercise and smart recovery options in conjunction with targeted psychological interventions, Ageless NAD+ are hoping to offer a cutting edge method of breaking the addiction cycle for good.” http://agelessnad.com.au
