As we age, we experience a lot of changes. From menopause to graying hair, it’s easy to assume that some age-related changes are inevitable. But did you know you don’t have to feel tired, sluggish, or experience brain fog all the time just because you’re over 40? Thanks to treatments like NAD+ therapy in Kenwood, you can feel like a younger version of yourself and get back to the life you’re missing.

Amy Brenner, MD & Associates, is passionate about helping patients regain their lost energy through effective therapeutic solutions. Besides NAD+ therapy, we offer many additional treatments—such as wellness coaching, hormone therapy, IV therapy, and more—to help people become the best versions of themselves.

In this blog, we’ll discuss NAD+ and detail other treatments you can pair with this energy-producing therapy.

Energize Your Life

Let’s start by exploring NAD+ therapy in Kenwood, how we administer it, and the benefits our patients experience after receiving the treatment.

NAD+ Therapy

Did you know that as the human body ages, a coenzyme called NAD+ declines?

While this decline is normal, NAD+ is in every living cell in our bodies, so as its presence diminishes, we often start feeling unpleasant side effects, like brain fog and exhaustion.

What is NAD+?

NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. It’s an essential coenzyme (a biological molecule that accelerates the catalytic function of an enzyme) of B3 (niacin). Your cells need NAD+ to:

  • Function properly
  • Turn nutrients into energy
  • Regulate other cellular functions (like repairing DNA)

What causes NAD+ to decline?

NAD+ naturally declines as a person ages because of:

  • Oxidative stress
  • Decline in mitochondrial production
  • The inflammatory response

Other factors may also lead to NAD+ decline. These include the following:

  • Inadequate nutrition
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Infrequent or no exercise
  • Exposure to toxins

What does NAD+ therapy do?

We use NAD+ therapy in Kenwood to improve many health conditions, including those specifically associated with ATP decline. Decreased mitochondrial functioning can lead to:

  • Neurological conditions
  • Insulin resistance
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Poor sleep
  • Decline in memory
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Inflammatory issues
  • Chronic diseases

How does NAD+ therapy work?

NAD+ therapy in Kenwood is a quick, easy process that’s completed in our office or the comfort of your home, depending on the type of therapy you choose.

NAD+ Intramuscular (IM) Therapy

We administer this treatment through an injection in the upper arm, thigh, or buttocks. Patients typically get several injections over a period of time so their bodies can adjust to the therapy.

Most people we treat receive a loading dose of 2 to 3 injections per week until they feel positive results and get maintenance treatments 1 to 4 times a month. Each injection takes approximately 5 minutes.

NAD+ Patch Therapy

We also offer at-home patch therapy. Patches are a good option for individuals with a busy schedule.

NAD+ Therapy Results

Many patients feel calmer and more energized after NAD+ therapy in Kenwood, while others feel sore or tired. Both reactions are normal. In time, you may experience the following benefits:

  • Increased energy, endurance, recovery, and mental clarity
  • Improved mood, sleep, metabolism, exercise tolerance, and immune support
  • DNA repair
  • Promotes DNA repair and lengthened telomeres
  • Reduced inflammation and cravings

NAD+ Side Effects

If you choose IM injections, you may experience redness, bruising, or soreness at the injection site. Patients who get NAD+ therapy in Kenwood may experience:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Weakness
  • Chest tightness
  • Flushing
  • Sweating

IV Therapy

Another useful, invigorating treatment is IV therapy. When paired with NAD+ therapy in Kenwood, patients can experience more dramatic results.

What is IV therapy?

IV therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that directly delivers minerals, nutrients, and amino acids to your bloodstream.

By administering these treatments into your vein, we bypass your digestive system and increase your rate of absorption.

Our practice offers patients 2 types of IV therapies: symptomatic and regenerative.

Symptomatic IV Therapy

We use symptomatic IV therapy to:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Increase collagen production
  • Boost mood
  • Promote weight loss
  • Increase athletic performance
  • Reduce headaches

Regenerative IV Therapy

Our regenerative IV therapy is typically used within a patient’s wellness plan and can improve cognitive function and cellular health.

IV Drip Options

We’ve created a handful of IV drips to help treat specific issues. Take a look at our offerings and reach out to us if you think one of these may be right for you!

  • B-Lean Drip: Contains vitamins and L-Taurine to help metabolism, maintain energy levels, support enzyme function, and balance mood.
  • Get Up & Go Drip: Contains B-complex vitamins and amino acids to support energy, enhance athletic performance, and improve metabolism.
  • Immunity Drip: Contains vitamin C, zinc, and B-complex vitamins to protect against free radical buildup, boost the immune system, decrease inflammation, and improve brain health.
  • Inner Beauty Drip: Contains biotin, vitamin C, and B vitamins to target acne, wrinkles, and dull skin.
  • Myer’s Cocktail Drip: Contains B and C vitamins, calcium, and magnesium to support overall health and wellness.
  • Procaine IV Drip: Contains procaine (novocaine), which breaks down into DEAE and PABA to help reset the nervous system.

Lipotropic Injections

Another suite of helpful injections we offer includes our Lipo-B, Lipo-Mino, and B12 injections. Each offering can help you maintain energy and stamina as well as aid metabolism.

Lipo-B

Lipo-B can help the body break down and redistribute fat, increase energy levels, control cholesterol, and aid in liver detoxification.

Lipo-Mino

This injection is similar to our Lipo-B shot, but it also contains B vitamins (B6, B1, B2) and carnitine, which further help with fat loss, energy increase, and appetite suppression, as well as muscle building and immunity support.

Vitamin B12

Similar to our NAD+ therapy in Kenwood, we use our B12 injections to help patients combat fatigue. This injection also can improve patients’ homocysteine metabolism and the function of their nervous and immune systems. This injection also may help reduce depression and can promote red blood cell formation.

Hormone Therapy

Another normal aspect of aging is hormone fluctuations. But just because hormone fluctuations are normal does not mean you have to live with this condition’s frustrating effects.

At Amy Brenner, MD & Associates, we use bio-identical hormones to treat hormone imbalances in men and women. Depending on your preferences, we can administer hormones (testosterone, estrogen, and/or progesterone for women, or testosterone for men) in the form of topical creams, injections, or pellets placed under your skin, depending on the hormone your body needs and your personal preferences.

Hormone Imbalance Symptoms

Hormone therapy may be right for you if you’re a man or woman and experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Sexual side effects (decreased sex drive or erectile issues in men, or vaginal dryness in women)
  • Poor concentration
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Low energy
  • Weight gain
  • Poor mood
  • Loss of muscle mass

Wellness Coaching

Anyone could benefit from the support they will receive from our experienced wellness coaches.

While our coaches’ primary job is to help people lose weight, they also offer helpful wellness tips and tricks and are full of compassionate motivation. Everything they do is to help patients improve their lives by embracing a healthier lifestyle.

During your sessions with your coach, you will:

  • Learn how to set sustainable, attainable wellness goals.
  • Receive weight loss advice, learn about where food cravings come from, and discover how to maintain your weight goal (if applicable).
  • Track your progress with a helpful app.

After you establish care with your coach, you can have ongoing virtual appointments.

Additional Testing

We also offer additional testing with our NAD+ therapy in Kenwood to ensure your body is running the way it’s supposed to.

Thyroid Testing and Treatments

Your thyroid takes certain nutrients from supplements and food and converts them into thyroid hormones. These hormones are responsible for the following essential functions:

  • Determining how your body uses energy
  • Body temperature
  • Maintaining the health of the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs

We test your thyroid function by running 2 comprehensive thyroid panels (a simple blood draw) spaced a few weeks apart to ensure we get an accurate reading. If your results show that something isn’t balanced, we’ll discuss supplement options, diet, and exercise to address your needs.

Adrenals and Cortisol Testing and Treatments

Patients with elevated cortisol levels can experience other issues, including other hormone imbalances. Chronic stress and other daily stressors can affect this hormone.

We can easily test your cortisol levels by having you collect 4 saliva samples throughout the day. This allows us to complete a circadian rhythm assessment. We’ll receive your results in 4 to 5 weeks and determine if you could benefit from therapy, supplementation, or other diet and exercise changes.

Insulin Testing and Treatments

Insulin resistance (when a patient’s cells have a lowered response to insulin, a hormone) can impact one’s ability to lose weight, affect energy levels and mood, and cause patients to crave sugar. Insulin resistance can be a precursor to type 2 diabetes and if properly addressed can be reversed.

Our practice uses a glucose tolerance test with real food (a carbohydrate-rich meal) to measure your levels 2 hours after eating. After getting your results (1 to 2 weeks), we’ll discuss treatment options if appropriate.
