Mitochondria are the power houses of our cells, where nutrients are converted into energy. NAD + is a naturally occurring and vital co-factor in mitochondrial function. Cells convert NAD + into NADH (and vice versa) during cellular metabolism. The ratio of NAD + to NADH for optimal cell function is 700 to 1. As we age, this ratio tends to decrease, which slows us down at a cellular level. The result can make us feel weak, slow, fat, and tired. Our mood, concentration, and memory can decline.
Many people find that NAD + supplementation given directly by intravenous (IV) or intramuscular (IM)injection can boost physical and mental well-being. NAD + injections have been found to reverse the symptoms of chronic fatigue, improve athletic endurance, and reduce insulin resistance. They can also improve mental clarity, alertness, concentration, mood, and memory.
Sublingual or nasal NAD + supplementation is also possible. Many people report excellent results with weekly or semi-weekly IM injections, followed by oral or nasal preparations for maintenance dosing. Ozone (oxygen) therapy can improve the effectiveness of all NAD + supplementation.
Ozone therapy introduces a highly reactive form of oxygen into a patient’s tissues. It can help many forms of dysfunction, including the typical maladies of aging. One of its benefits is helping to normalize the ratio of NAD + to NADH.
Minor Autohemotherapy is a systemic therapy in which ozone is introduced to a patient’s muscle tissue using the patient’s own blood as a medium. The body’s natural responses to this treatment can improve autoimmune conditions, alleviate allergy symptoms, and help resolve chronic skin problems such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
Prolozone Therapy TM uses localized injections of ozone along with complimentary compounds to improve oxygenation and mitochondrial function near the sites of pain and injuries. This can facilitate natural healing and regeneration.
Ozone therapies, when used in combination with detoxification, exercise, nutrition, hormone balancing, and stress management, can help many people live more vibrant lives. For additional information, please see our Ozone/Prolozone handout.
This combination of vitamins and amino acids can help patients lose weight, improve energy, preserve lean body mass, and process stored fat. The injected compound includes:
L carnitine - helps break down fat and turn it into energy
Vitamin B3 - increases metabolic rate and contributes to NAD + stores
Vitamin B6 - maintains healthy blood sugar, decreases cravings, supports immune function
Vitamin B1 - protects the nerve cells and converts carbohydrates into energy
HydroxyB12 - improves digestion and strengthens muscles (safe for all methylation genotypes)
Methionine - breaks down fat in the liver
Inositol - metabolizes fat and supports healthy serotonin levels
Choline - helps excrete toxins
Injected once or twice per week, Lipotropix is an excellent complimentary therapy to NAD +
supplementation and Ozone Therapy.
Myers Cocktail = The Myers' cocktail is a specially formulated shot of B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and vitamin C. It is designed to increase the blood concentration of these essential vitamins and minerals rapidly, a process which is typically unachievable through oral supplementation.
