Myalgic encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a poorly understood yet complex and often debilitating condition. Despite most doctors not knowing much about it, it affects up to 1.3% of adults in the United States alone. Learn more about ME/CFS and how NAD+ therapy can be a breakthrough therapy for this challenging condition.
ME/CFS affects up to 1.3% of adults, but doctors rarely know how to treat it
Understanding Myalgic encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
ME/CFS is characterized by persistent fatigue that isn't alleviated by rest. It's often worsened by physical or mental activity and persists for months. Unfortunately, because we often can't identify what causes it, some people believe it "is all in your head." We don't always know what causes it, but it can be triggered by:
- Infections (COVID, Epstein-Barr virus, Hepatitis, Human Immunodeficiency Virus, etc.)
- High levels of inflammation
- Physical or emotional stress
- Energy metabolism problems
The symptoms of ME/CFS can include:
- Memory or cognitive impairment
- Chronic pain and headaches
- Heart rhythm problems
- Altered gut microbiome
- Sleep abnormalities
Women are affected more often than men, and there are few effective treatments for ME/CFS. This makes emerging treatments like Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) promising for those struggling with ME/CFS.
What is NAD?
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is a powerful molecule found in every cell of your body. As a coenzyme of vitamin B3 it plays key roles in:
Because your brain requires so much energy, NAD supplies energy to reduce brain fog and reduce migraines. Chronic fatigue syndrome also benefits from NAD supplementation.
NAD+ Therapy in Treating Chronic Fatigue
NAD+ therapy can be effective in treating ME/CFS because it addresses many of the contributors to the inflammation and energy depletion:
For these reasons, NAD+ infusion therapy has become a powerful treatment for ME/CFS. For optimal results, ME/CFS requires a holistic approach to restore the mind-body connection. For this reason, IV Ketamine therapy can further help reduce fatigue, especially when struggling with depression.
