The first step in the Cellular Detox Centers NAD Treatment Process is a comprehensive medical evaluation which reviews all systems in the body, including digestion, nutrient absorption, hormone balance, immunity and the like. After that dietary recommendations are provided, along with nutritional supplements. Then the 10 day intravenous program is started.
The IV infusion varies from day to day and is individualized for each patient. Each day of the treatment, a nurse inserts an IV line. The patient relaxes in a lounge chair while the intravenous formulation is slowly infused through the vein. The uncomfortable feelings of withdrawal and cravings subside and remain at bay surprisingly quickly. Between the fourth and eighth day patients typically report
feelings of amazing mental clarity. Infusions are tolerated well and any mild side effects disappear at the cessation of infusion. The severe physical symptoms of withdrawal vanish; however, the full protocol is required to complete the treatment and minimize or eliminate physical cravings. Note that following treatment the psychological aspects of addiction still need to be addressed. During the day the patient may watch television, read, eat, meditate, and even doze. At the end of the day, the IV is disconnected and the patient leaves the outpatient clinic.
