Understanding BR+NAD™ Therapy and the Many Mental Health Issues it Can Help Remedy

One in five adults in the United States suffers from a mental illness, including mood disorders like depression, anxiety disorders, and substance use disorders. These eye-opening numbers underscore the need for effective treatment protocols to address these very serious, and sometimes life-threatening, illnesses. 

To date, suicide is the second leading cause of death among people between 10 and 34 years old. While the brain remains somewhat of a mystery, we do know that it functions best when it has the right tools, which is where BR+NAD therapy comes in.

At Revolution Psychiatric and Addiction Treatment, under the compassionate care of Dr. Richard E. Repass, the team has had great success using BR+NAD therapy to help patients in Mercer Island, Washington, overcome a wide range of neuropsychiatric problems.

Here’s a look at how BR+NAD therapy works and how it can help break the chains of mental health issues. 

Behind NAD

NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, which is a coenzyme of niacin that helps the trillions of cells in your body produce energy. When you take in food, you’re giving your body the fuel it needs to function. But your cells require a specific type of energy that rely on NAD to convert the food you eat into cellular energy. To do this, your NAD molecules transport electrons during cell metabolism. 

Aside from this all-important fuel conversion, the NAD molecules in your cells are also critical for DNA repair, cell signaling, neurotransmission, and gene expression.

In other words, the level of NAD molecules in your body can have a serious impact on your mental and physical health.

What happens to your brain during mental illness?

The human brain still remains much of a mystery, but we do know that mental illness has a lot to do with the neurotransmitters in your brain. As a result of mental illness, some areas of your brain go dormant as new neural pathways are formed — and the results can lead to depression, addiction, and more. 

This rewiring in your brain is a difficult target in terms of treatment, but we’ve found that tackling the problem on a cellular level garners incredible results.

Giving your cells the boost they need

The human body is made up of cells, and your brain is no different. The goal of our revolutionary BR+NAD therapy is to provide your brain cells with the energy they need for optimal function. Our own Dr. Repass uses BR+NAD, which is a specialized NAD therapy that emphasizes brain restoration.

We administer our BR+NAD therapy intravenously, which means that we bypass your gastrointestinal tract and go straight to your bloodstream where there are no absorption hurdles. As the NAD formula makes its way into your blood, it’s delivered throughout your body, providing your cells with renewed resources for rebuilding and repair, including the cells and neurons in your brain.

What conditions can BR+NAD therapy help treat?

The success of BR+NAD therapy in helping our patients overcome addiction has prompted us (as well as researchers around the nation) to apply the same therapy to neuropsychiatric disorders, including:

Since neuropsychiatric conditions deplete the levels of NAD in your body, we bring these levels back up through our BR+NAD therapy, helping the neurons in your brain go back to normal function.
