Conditions such as anxiety and depression can alter someone’s mood and cause irregular or erratic behavior. Since these conditions can be caused by an imbalance in neurotransmitters, IV therapies using amino acids, vitamins and minerals can help restore this balance. The IV therapy is managed by a licensed physician and administered by a Registered Nurse or RN.
We understand that anxiety, depression and other mood disorders are a complex medical issue and therefore our therapy is considered to be one of the things you can use to your road to recovery, along with counselling, and medication from a psychiatrist.
Mood disorders can be partly hereditary but when one has to deal with the stress that comes along with these disorders it can leave you feeling helpless, imbalanced and fatigued. Our IV therapy program can help nourish the brain and body by providing support for your recovery.
These therapies along with your conventional treatments (counselling, psychiatric evaluation) and a healthy diet can help alleviate the symptoms and provide some mental clarity.
With the administration of intravenous amino acids, vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants, we can help restore neurochemistry and make you feel better.
We can also work and collaborate with your counsellor and/or psychiatrist to communicate any progress associated with our treatments.
IV NAD+ and Anxiety
Anxiety is a healthy and normal emotion. However, anxiety can become disproportionate
Leading to excessive apprehension, fear and worry. Anxiety disorders affects over 40 million people here in the United States. Anxiety increases adrenaline and cortisol as stress hormones. Stress hormones can have detrimental long-term effects to the brain and body over long periods of time.
Symptoms of anxiety disorders include:
Excessive thoughts of worry
High blood pressure
Difficulty breathing (panic)
The treatment for anxiety is SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) and benzodiazepines for panic attacks. Increasing serotonin in the brain can help alleviate anxiety symptoms. In a previous section we discussed detoxing off of benzodiazepines with IV NAD+ therapy. IV NAD therapy can help reduce withdrawal symptoms of benzodiazepine withdrawal.
IV NAD+ therapy regulates Sirtuins and in turn may regulate serotonin (via MAO inhibition) and alleviate anxiety
