NAD, a nutritionally based treatment with a long track record of success, is now helping dozens of local residents gain freedom from long-held addictions.
“NAD is more than 90 percent effective in minimizing withdrawal and eliminating cravings for alcohol and drugs,” said Dr. Susan Ashley of Healthy Living Liberty Lake. “It restores and heals the brain from years of substance abuse.”
NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a molecule found in every cell of the body and is essential for life. It enables the conversion of food into energy and helps regulate the expression of genes involved in cell viability and in repair of damaged DNA. NAD is also important for the circadian rhythm to allow more restful sleep and has significant anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects.
At Healthy Living Liberty Lake, NAD is used to treat addictions, PTSD, chronic stress, anxiety, depression and neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Dr. Ashley said NAD has been used since the 1950s to help thousands of individuals free themselves of multiple addictions, including alcoholism, and patients were able to kick their addictions without the agony of intense withdrawal or the incessant cravings that are the primary cause of relapse.
