NAD Treatment of Chronic Degenerative Diseases

NAD has been shown to effectively treat chronic degenerative conditions, like:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • CTE
  • Lyme’s Disease

If you are a loved one is struggling with one of these diseases then call us at

NAD is Completely Natural and Safe

NAD  is derived from vitamin B3 or niacin and is essential for cells to generate energy. Having Low NAD in the body is associated with chronic diseases in general. When NAD is given intravenously, it restores the cellular energy system which in turn increases energy, relieves mood disturbances as well as pain, and addiction.

NAD is essential to living and is found in every cell of all living things. There is much more NAD in the bodies of babies and growing adults.

Declining NAD is due to the inability of our cells to recycle NAD, or to synthesize new NAD. This decline is associated with the several of the above conditions.

Why Does NAD Help These Chronic Conditions?

Among some of the reasons why NAD may be beneficial to these conditions are:

  1. NAD helps enzymes in your body convert food into energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Studies suggest that some people with chronic fatigue and related conditions have low levels of ATP.
  2. Research also shows that NAD can stimulate brain function, which may help alleviate the cognitive dysfunction associated with these chronic conditions.
  3. NAD may reduce the fatigue by restoring the function of the mitochondria (tiny structures that power your cells). These chronic conditions are believed to involve mitochondrial dysfunction.
  4. NAD may help your brain create neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) that influence mood and cognitive function (including serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine.)

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a medical condition characterized by chronic widespread pain and a heightened pain response to pressure. Other symptoms include tiredness to a degree that normal activities are affected, sleep problems, and troubles with memory

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic fatigue is a self-reported fatigue lasting at least six consecutive months. Chronic fatigue may be either persistent or relapsing. Chronic fatigue is a symptom of many diseases and conditions


Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative disease caused by repetitive injuries to the brain occurring over a period of time.

Many of the symptoms associated with CTE are also found in neurodegenerative disorders and aging, which include cognitive factors such as impaired concentration, memory and language.

In CTE, there are holes in the brain, dead areas or areas where abnormal plaques develop.

In all aging brains, lack of NAD seems to promote neurons to go “off-line”. Even though the brain cells are present, they don’t conduct electrical impulses as efficiently and stop reaching out to other brain cells, thus resulting in impaired brain function.

NAD encourages new connections in the brain and the connections may bypass injured or non-functional areas of the brain; resulting in increased senses and clarity of thoughts.

Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection primarily transmitted by Ixodes ticks, also known as deer ticks, and on the West Coast, black-legged ticks.

Common Symptoms of Lyme Disease:
• Fatigue
• Cognitive impairment
• Joint pain
• Poor sleep
• Mood problems
• Muscle pain

Getting  Treatment From The NAD MD

Dr Phillip Milgram is known as The NAD MD for being on the forefront of using NAD for a variety of ailments. Dr. Milgram has been active in the field of age reversal since the 1980s.

Where Will I Receive the NAD?

The intravenous infusion is typically facilitated in the comfortable office at our beautiful Carlsbad Headquarters right near the ocean on Carlsbad Village Drive. We also have other locations in San Diego and Orange County.

Each patient will be placed in a comfortable therapy room and will be encouraged to bring laptop or whatever device to help keep them entertained. Depending on the purpose of NAD infusion, the patient may receive additional treatment or counseling after the NAD dispensation.

Frequently Asked Questions About NAD


How do I take NAD?

NAD can be ingested a few different ways but the most effective way to get the maximum benefit is to take the NAD intravenously, which bypasses the digestive system. Facilitating the intravenous dispensation of NAD is what Dr. Milgram has done more often (and for a longer time) then just about anyone else.

The intravenous sessions typically last 2-6 hours at first, because in the initial stage we are giving you the largest dose of the NAD. After the first couple of days, the dispensation sessions get progressively shorter.


What is NAD and Who Discovered It?

NAD is a natural substance that occurs in every living cell. It was originally discovered by scientists in 1906 but it wasn’t until many years later that doctors started realizing the many health benefits of supplementing our body’s natural supply of NAD. Read more on our What is NAD page.


How long is the Treatment?

The treatment differs for every patient upon an assessment that Dr. Milgram will do. It depends on what reason the NAD is being taken and all the other personal and health factors present. Typically the NAD is initially dispensed intravenously for 2-6 hours each day.

Drug and alcohol detoxifications are more intensive and lengthy dispensations of NAD and can typically run from a few days up to 2 weeks. With our help, you can get off very high levels of opiates and alcohol in 10 days.  Symptom reduction and relief from pain is frequently very quickly experienced. Many people report going from hopelessness to feeling wonderful with absolutely no cravings or withdrawals in 10 days. Some drugs like meth or Suboxone might require longer than 10 days of treatment.

The treatment of chronic degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimers will likely require one or a few days of NAD with periodic follow ups.

A treatment for Aging Reversal typically runs 4-6 days.


Do we accept insurance?

Payment is expected at the time of NAD dispensation. We have an insurance utilization billing expert who can help you facilitate reimbursement (if your insurance plan covers NAD), and depending on the plan, we have obtained up to 90% reimbursement.

You can contact us anytime for assistance working with your insurance to find out what they cover and how they will reimburse you for the treatment you will do here. We are not Medicare/Medicaid approved for the NAD Therapy.

notify insurance

Will My Insurance Company be notified?

Not if you don’t want them to be, this payment is paid out of pocket; it is your decision if you would like notify insurance to get any type of reimbursement back.


What to bring?

  • Any and all lab work or medical tests done in the last 6 months
  • Bring ID & insurance card

Is NAD Treatment Safe?

Yes, it is safe. NAD is already in every cell of your body and is found at the highest levels in infancy. We have licensed staff here watching over you during your treatment, and even if you go to the house (as part of a residential treatment program), a CPR certified house manager is on duty at all times.

There are no negative side effects to this treatment that can harm you, and there has been tens of thousands of infusions with no adverse reactions. You will have MD visits, and prescribed medication for all of your health care needs. Please be advised NAD is not an approved treatment by the FDA but there are multiple studies being done.
