NADH Therapy for Parkinson’s in Johnson City, TN
What is Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative brain disorder affecting the body’s motor system, causing the body's nerve cells (neurons) to breakdown over time and to stop producing dopamine (an important neurotransmitter). It is characterized by shaking and muscular rigidity. Those living with Parkinson’s disease may begin to experience symptoms such as depression and difficulty sleeping. The majority of cases are found in men, typically diagnosed later in life. No one knows for certain what causes the disease, but it is widely believed to be influenced by genetics and the breakdown of dopamine-producing neurons.
The disease continues to progress as the patient ages and can eventually lead to issues with cognitive function, speech and mobility. Parkinson’s disease can cause drastic changes in the lives of those it affects. Living with a Parkinson’s patient often demands certain changes to normal day-to day activities. Items in the house must be repositioned or reinforced to prevent falls and injuries. Because of its grim progression and emotional toll on patients and their loved ones, treatments for Parkinson’s disease are in high demand.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) is a chemical that naturally occurs in the body and plays an essential role in cellular energy production. NADH contributes to our memory, overall immune health, DNA repair and other critical processes effecting our mood and physical functioning. Many people choose to supplement NADH in the form of niacin or niacinamide to increase energy levels and improve their overall health.
In fact, because of its wide range of abilities, including the refreshing effect on the cells in the brain, NADH is often used therapeutically for a variety of medical conditions. NADH therapy uses metabolic co-enzymes to restructure and repair cells in the body. Some of the most popular medical conditions treated with NADH therapy include:
- Addiction and Chemical Dependency
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Juvenile Diabetes
- Learning Disorders (such as ADHD)
- Chronic Pain
NADH Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease and NADH deficiency often go hand and hand. NADH therapy has the ability to replace the oxidized coenzymes that are lost due to the disease. The enzymes are typically administered via injection or oral supplement and, once they have dispersed through the body, may provide effective relief for the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. NADH therapy helps those suffering from Parkinson’s to:
- Increase ATP (energy) production
- Support the production of dopamine
- Boost the immune system
If you or someone you know is suffering from the debilitating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) therapy may be right for you. Request more information about NADH therapy for Parkinson’s disease today. Call (423) 482-8711 or contact Dr. Dalal Akoury online.
