Did you know that Major Depressive Disorder affects more than 16.1 million American adults over the age of 18 in any given year? If you suffer with clinical depression, the right time for getting a mental health treatment in Tennessee is now! 

In regards to how depression is traditionally treated, a combination of medications and psychotherapy are usually given. While this may be effective in some cases, the root cause of depression is often overlooked. What if instead we could approach depression from a holistic point of view and find a cure by nourishing the body through IV drip therapy? 

Diagnosing Depression

Depression affects every area of your life. It affects the way that you think and feel about your very existence. It influences your sleeping and eating patterns, and your productivity at work. Though there are many different categories of depressive disorders, they all share some of the following symptoms:

  • Sadness that seems never-ending
  • Feeling hopeless or pessimistic
  • Feeling worthless, guilty or pessimistic
  • Irritability
  • Feeling disinterested in things you used to enjoy
  • General lack of energy
  • Talking or moving slowly
  • Restlessness
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Either insomnia or oversleeping
  • Weight changes
  • Contemplating suicide
  • Headaches, cramps, aches and pains that don’t go away with treatment

If you experience some of these symptoms for more than two weeks, you may be diagnosed as being depressed. The frequency and severity of the symptoms depend on the individual and his or her particular illness. 

Intravenous Treatment for Depression 

When your body is dehydrated, and deficient in vitamins, minerals and enzymes, your overall health, including your brain health can suffer as a result. In particular, there is a coenzyme known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (or NAD) that is known to have a particularly positive effect on reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression. 

As we age, our natural levels of NAD decrease. In addition to this, issues such as stress, insomnia, and drug use cause our natural NAD reserves to deplete even quicker. By supplementing NAD through an IV infusion, your cells become nourished of this vital element and your overall health is boosted as a result. If you are looking for a fast, natural way to lift your spirits, getting an IV drip therapy for depression may be right for you. 

Why Does It Work?

NAD has been shown to help restore mitochondrial function in cells. Having damaged mitochondria may lead to cognitive changes that bring on anxiety and depression. This suggests that restoring NAD improves the function of your brain and body at a cellular level.

NAD also is useful in reducing inflammation in your body. This is helpful in countless different ways. Whether you are suffering from arthritis, or you just want younger-looking skin, NAD can be your new best friend. 

Because the vitamins and enzymes are delivered intravenously, they don’t have to travel through the digestive system to make it into your body. Since they are deposited directly into your bloodstream, they efficiently travel where they need to go, in an expedient manner.
