Neuropsychiatric Disorders Q & A

What are neuropsychiatric disorders?

Neuropsychiatric disorders are mental health problems caused by diseases in the nervous system. These disorders cover a wide range of conditions including addictions, developmental disabilities, eating disorders, sleep disorders, degenerative diseases, and mood disorders.

These are only a few examples of neuropsychiatric conditions frequently treated by Dr. Repass:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)

Alzheimer’s disease is known for memory loss, and Parkinson’s is characterized by tremors, rigid muscles, and movement problems, but they also cause psychological challenges such as anxiety, depression, behavior problems, and personality changes.

How are neuropsychiatric disorders treated?

Considering the diverse group of conditions that are included in the group of neuropsychiatric disorders, it’s easy to see that they each require customized treatment based on individual symptoms and health care needs.

Dr. Repass begins by performing a thorough neuropsychiatric exam. This includes talking with you about your life experiences and symptoms, as well as tests to evaluate areas of brain function such as:

  • Intelligence
  • Attention
  • Memory
  • Language
  • Perception
  • Personality
  • Sensorimotor function
  • Mood state and emotions
  • Executive functions (planning, conceptualization)

Dr. Repass determines which tests you’ll take based on your symptoms. Once you have an accurate diagnosis, he puts his years of experience to work, developing a customized treatment that may include medication, psychotherapy, and/or detoxification. Dr. Repass also specializes in one of today’s most innovative treatments: IV infusion of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD).

What is NAD therapy?

NAD is a natural substance produced in your body, where it’s needed for vital roles such as energy and neurotransmitter production, DNA repair, and communication between nerves and muscles. When you have a neuropsychiatric disease, your levels of NAD drop. Just when you need extra energy to deal with physical and psychological stress, you have less energy than normal. 

Dr. Repass uses a special formula, BR+NAD™, which also includes ingredients that support NAD, such as vitamin B3 and amino acids. As your NAD returns to normal levels, your brain function is enhanced, so you gain clarity and impulse control, and neurotransmitters become balanced again. 

Your nerves, organs, and cellular metabolism also improve with BR+NAD infusions. Most of all, cells throughout your body can once again produce the energy needed to heal and support your well-being.
