Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) & Chronic Brain Injuries
NAD+ Treatment for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) & Post Concussive Syndrome
There is no shame.
The degenerative disease known as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy or CTE, is a form of brain injury usually caused by repetitive injuries to the brain. CTE symptoms often become more serious over time; increasing in severity from years to decades after an initial trauma incident.
Post-concussive syndrome occurs when symptoms of a mild traumatic brain injury last longer than expected.
Symptoms of CTE include:
Symptoms of Post Concussion Syndrome include:
NAD+ Therapy is not the only treatment offered!
During your initial intake, we perform a comprehensive personal review focusing on the biopsychosocial model of medicine.
We strive to find the root cause of your problems and help you with changes in mindset, behavior, and medications/supplements that will allow you to live the life you want.
Other IV Therapy modalities, such as Ketamine, can be used in conjunction or in place of NAD+ Therapy depending on your specific situation
NAD+ Offers New Hope
Recent studies show that heightened NAD+ levels can result in the growth of new brain cells in the traumatized areas of the brain (a process known as neurogenesis) and create new connections (synaptogenesis) in the brain that result in better cognition, reduction of common symptoms, and increased clarity of thought.
The goal of IV NAD therapy is to restore mitochondrial metabolism and decrease oxidative stress in the brain. The goal is to hasten the recovery and ideally restore proper function after a brain injury as in chronic traumatic encephalopathy, traumatic brain injury, and post-concussive syndrome.
NAD+ IV infusion therapy is a superior approach to boosting NAD+ levels over oral supplements that rely on the digestive tract for absorption. Oral forms of NAD+ are usually poorly absorbed and frequently pass through the digestive system without ever breaking down for absorption.

How does NAD+ treat Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and other Chronic Brain Injuries ?
CTE creates ‘dark areas’ of the brain where neuron activity diminishes or ceases all together due to a build-up of abnormal plaque in the injured areas. Although brain cells are present in these areas, they stop efficiently conducting the electrical impulses used to communicate with the other brain cells, thereby resulting in impaired brain function that commonly manifests in the symptoms associated with the condition.
Nourish the brain, restore the mind
Intravenous NAD+ has a lot of promise in the treatment for this condition in several unique ways.
Most conventional treatments for CTE focus on targeting the symptoms rather than the source of the problem, but NAD+ therapy takes a different approach.
Recent studies show that when NAD+ is replenished, the existing ‘dark areas’ of the brain are reactivated almost immediately through the stimulation of mitochondrial activity that, in turn, powers the cell.
Intravenous NAD+ therapy has been shown to encourage the creation of new connections in the brain that can bypass injured or non-functional areas resulting in clarity of thought and mitigation of the negative symptoms associated with CTE.
Additionally, NAD+ therapy has also been shown to repair and actually grow new brain cells (neurogenesis) while activating the enzyme responsible for DNA repair and degrading the dysfunctional proteins associated with neurodegeneration.
In short, NAD+ therapy allows the body to repair and restore itself in a natural way, distinct from any other conventional treatment.
