There has been relatively little formal clinical study of the effects of intravenous NAD in the treatment of PTSD and chronic anxiety. However, through direct observation of patients receiving NAD for chemical detoxification who also suffer from PTSD, it initially became clear that NAD appears to substantially relieve symptoms of PTSD. Some of the more difficult to treat symptoms of PTSD that traditional medications don’t help appear to respond to NAD. Chronic and persistent traumatic nightmares from PTSD demonstrate a rapid and readily observed response to intravenous NAD. The size of the treatment effect is obvious and a welcome relief to sufferers of PTSD. The daily anxiety associated with chronic PTSD is also sensitive to the balancing effects of NAD. Individuals with a history of military combat and First Responders with trauma symptoms, for example, benefit from NAD.
NAD is a treatment that can significantly enhance work in a patient’s established ongoing therapeutic relationships with clinicians. Clinical observations demonstrate that unlike chemical dependency detox which for many can be a “one and done” treatment, the sustained response to NAD for PTSD and stress appears to most respond to a shorter number of days of initial IV infusion with intermittent follow-up infusions. When followed up with periodic 1 day boosters a few times per year, the positive response can be maintained. The frequency of boosters is individually determined based on strength of treatment effect and duration of response. Satisfaction levels for treatment of stress relief, and PTSD are reported at over 97% by data collected by Springfield Wellness Center.
