If you read our last blog post on NAD+ IV Therapy, you’ll know NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells. Optimized levels of NAD+ help fight off the effects of aging and increase your energy levels so that you’re less tired and weary during the day. Earlier, we discussed the positive affects NAD+ has on Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), but those with SAD aren’t the only ones benefitting from this coenzyme’s natural abilities.

Revolutionizing NAD+ Treatments through the U.S. Military

According to a recent article from GEN (Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News) the U.S. Military will be launching clinical trials February-April 10th, 2022, of a NAD+ pill designed to block or reduce many degenerative effects of aging. U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and Metro International Biotech (MetroBiotech) have already completed preclinical safety and dosing studies in anticipation of the trial.

Timothy Hawkins, a spokesperson for SOCOM stated, “If the preclinical studies and clinical trials bear out, the resulting benefits include improved human performance, such as increased endurance and faster recovery from injury.”

Lisa R. Sanders, director of science and technology for Special Operations Forces, Acquisition, Technology & Logistics at SOCOM went on to explain how NAD+ truly has the potential to delay aging and prevent onset injury—which could be a gamechanger for the U.S. Military and humanity in general.

NAD+, such as the NAD+ treatment that we offer here at IV Restoration, plays a key role in the function of all living cells. As a factor that is required for enzymatic processes, NAD+ generates energy within the cell through the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cycle. It also helps regulate cellular health, and poly-ADP ribose polymerases (PARPS) – proteins that help cells repair themselves. With the help of NAD+ and MedtroBiotech, the U.S. Military is making great strides towards life-changing advancements in our understanding of science.

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder?

Seasonal depression, also called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), occurs about the same time each year, right as fall begins, and carries on through winter until days become longer as springtime arrives. SAD can easily be mistaken for a mild case of “the winter blues” when it is, in fact, a serious form of depression. According to the Cleveland Clinic, about 5% of adults in the United States experience Seasonal Affective Disorder each year, with 75% of those adults being women and 25% being men. 

Causes and Effects of SAD

While researchers aren’t entirely sure what causes Seasonal Affective Disorder each year, there are a number of theories behind what might trigger it. Since so much of our Vitamin D comes from the sun, one of the most well-known theories suggests that a lack of sunlight each winter could be the underlying cause. Some other theories say that SAD is potentially caused by:

  • Biological Clock Changes
  • Brain Chemical Imbalance
  • Decrease in Serotonin Levels
  • Melatonin Boosts
  • Negative Thoughts

There are a plethora of symptoms that come with SAD, many of which are similar to other types of depression. According to The Cleveland Clinic, these symptoms include:

  • Sadness
  • Anxiety
  • Carbohydrate cravings and weight gain
  • Extreme fatigue and lack of energy
  • Feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Irritability
  • Limbs feeling heavy
  • Loss of interest in usual activities – including withdrawing from social activities
  • Sleeping more
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

NAD+ IV Therapy Can Help with SAD

IV Restoration offers an effective solution in the form of NAD+ IV Therapy. NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells. With time, natural NAD+ levels in the human body decrease, and are also depleted by a number of factors including too little sleep, stress, depression and more. This leads to many symptoms of aging, including lower energy, diminished mental clarity and a slower metabolism. 

NAD+ IV Therapy helps to optimize the NAD levels in your cells, giving you immediate energy and mental focus. Our NAD+ IV therapy also lessens the physical effects of aging, reduces depression and anxiety, fights chronic fatigue and sleep disturbances, and helps relieve symptoms of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. By reducing the side effects of NAD+ depletion, your body may also be able to fight-off symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder throughout the fall and winter. 

A second treatment option for budget-conscious, winter-weary Cleveland inhabitants is our IM therapy (intramuscular) injections of vitamin D3 – “the sunshine vitamin.” Available in 25,000 and 50,000 IU doses, these IM therapy shots can perk you up quickly and many of our clients visit us monthly for these healthful injections during the dark winter days of northeast Ohio.

IV Restoration in the Cleveland area offers both NAD+ IV Infusions and NAD+ subcutaneous injections. Help prepare your body for the cold season and/or fight-off the negative effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder through our various NAD+ treatment options.

IV hangover therapy helps prevent or alleviate hangovers and is administered in our Cleveland location.

For as long as there have been libations and alcohol-fueled celebrations, traditions and partying, there have been the dreaded morning-after hangovers to remind drinkers of the Night Before and their diminished self-control or over-indulgence. It’s almost like a Yin-Yang pay-back for the good times that alcohol brings, that hang-overs are the aftermath of a fun night spent out on the town. Dehydration, fuzzy vision, splitting headaches, nausea and more – hangovers are the gift that keeps on giving after a fun night of imbibing and no one enjoys them one bit!

The pursuit of hangover remedies is as storied and long as the history of alcohol consumption itself – pickled sheep eyeballs, roasted pig lungs, crushed human skull, and of course the famed “hair of the dog” (an expression and remedy made famous by the ancient Greek author Antiphanes. referring to the homeopathic tradition of consuming alcohol to treat alcoholic hangovers) – and these cures and many more are discussed in a fascinating book covering the history of the quest for a cure for hangovers.

Researched and written by Canadian author Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall, Hung Over: The Morning After and One Man’s Quest for the Cure, is a fascinating tour of the folklore, old wives’ tales, fables, family remedies, early medicine, and even mass-accepted beliefs from bygone eras regarding the treatment of hangovers. From orange popsicles, prune juice or frankincense capsules to listening to pan pipes, getting a massage or consuming kudzu-root pills, Bishop-Stall explores the sometimes hysterical history as well as the science behind the cause of and the treatment for hangovers. It’s a fascinating read and one well worth the weight of an iron caldron – being slow-boiled in an iron caldron being one of the more-severe treatment discussed in the book!

Fortunately for residents of northeast Ohio living in the 21st century, none of these severe, questionable or traumatizing hangover remedies need to be sampled. IV Restoration of Cleveland offers a fantastic, relaxing and refreshing hangover-relief remedy in the form of our IV hangover therapy. Featuring a nutrient-rich formula of amino acids and B-complex vitamins in saline solution for hydration, as well as add-on ingredients to battle nausea and more, our hangover IV therapy works best as a proactive preemptive – taken before your night of celebrating to mitigate the negative consequences of the morning-after.

Either solution beats the suffering that your body experiences during a hangover!

As IV therapy providers in the Cleveland, Ohio area, we stand in awe at the accomplishments within the Healthcare field that the NEO region has helped to deliver. A World-class reputation is ours in Cleveland thanks largely to the Cleveland Clinic and its many pioneering physicians, medical specialists and dedicated nurses.

Medicine has progressed immensely over the past century, and the Cleveland area is one of the locales that generates or attracts leaders who are exploring frontiers in the Healthcare industry. Long before the COVID-19 pandemic, Cleveland had established itself as a major medical zone for specialty care. Thanks to the Cleveland Clinic, the city is home to the world’s first integrated international health system – one that medical professionals from all over the globe travel to in order to work towards advancements in healthcare.

The Cleveland Clinic

As it celebrates 100 years of breakthrough medical techniques, education and research, The Cleveland Clinic continues to act as a staple and bastion of medical expertise for Ohio and the United States as a nation – as well as garnering much international attention as well. Originally established as a multi-specialty practice group in 1921, the Cleveland Clinic now has more than 65,000 caregivers worldwide and 6 million patients per year!

According to the Encyclopedia of Cleveland History from Case Western Reserve University, The Cleveland Clinic was formalized in 1997 and has since become Cleveland’s largest employer and the third-largest employer in Ohio, with 33,000 employees. The Cleveland Clinic is known for practicing traditional as well as leading-edge forms of medicine such as cardiac and generalized patient care, but Cleveland patients, residents and athletes looking for a luxury health treatment can also find it right here in NEO right alongside the Clinic – in the form of intravenous therapy (IV therapy) for various results.
