What is Addiction Recovery through Neurotransmitter Restoration (NTR?)

Neurotransmitter Restoration (NTR) is the restoration and re-balancing of normal neurotransmission in the brain through IV amino acids.

Drugs, whether prescription drugs (pain pills, antidepressants, stimulants, or benzodiazepines such as Ativan, Valium, Xanax, or Klonopin), alcohol, tobacco, or street drugs (methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, ecstasy, LSD, PCP and others) have something in common: they all overstimulate certain neurotransmitter receptors (nerves) in the brain.

Over-stimulation is how they bring about their effects, but it is also how they cause lasting damage that leads to deeper addiction and the inability to handle or cope with the stresses of life. NTR consists of an intravenous solution of amino acids (the building blocks that make up all the proteins in our bodies) which actually rebuild the damaged areas of the brain.

These basic amino acids are specially formulated to be able to penetrate and positively influence the brain. The brain can then function again with ease, cravings disappear, stress levels become more manageable, and clarity of mind is restored.

Why won't just any amino acids work?

When taking combinations of amino acids into the body, some will work against others. Since  the body is designed so that it can ultimately get what it needs from the environment. Also, crossing the “blood-brain barrier” is a difficult process for most substances. The Neurotransmitter Restoration formulas had to be designed so that only the specific amino acids used would not counteract each other.  To allow the formulations to be more effective in actually penetrating the brain.

Since practitioners have not overcome these two obstacles, addiction recovery has been limited. Majority treat only the symptoms and not the root cause of the physical dependency. Many in the world appreciate the true potential of amino acid therapy for addictions, but no effective formula was available before NTR.

How well does Neurotransmitter Restoration work?

The effectiveness of NTR depends on the drug(s) used, the genetics of the brain of the patient, and how long the patient has been addicted. In general, more than 80% of patients will achieve long-term abstinence, with the previous cravings significantly reduced or eliminated completely. This is especially true with alcohol, methamphetamine, narcotics, and cocaine. Tobacco and benzodiazepines can be more difficult.

NTR restores the body physically from the damage done by drugs. The other major factors that will determine whether a patient succeeds, is if the patient’s maturity level and personal desire to be done with drugs forever. If these two aspects are not developed in a patient, no treatment, no matter how effective will hold much promise for separating him or her from future drug use.

How long will the effects last?

A person who has become addicted will always have greater susceptibility to future addiction than the average person. Therefore, after normal balance is restored to the brain, it is absolutely necessary for the patient to avoid the addicting substance(s) in the future. In fact, the safe course for patients after treatment is to avoid all substances that are potential for addiction – tobacco, alcohol, and addictive illegal or prescription drugs – as well as to avoid extremes in all aspects of life. The use of addictive substances again opens the door for the patient to return to the same addicted state as before.

Through the RecoverEaze treatment along side staying away from any potentially addictive substances, the large majority of patients enjoy freedom from cravings and clarity of mind that is permanent. A few patients will require a one or two day follow-up treatment, at some point after the initial 10 to 15 day treatment, before this lasting state is achieved.

AA Meetings and other support programs are highly recommended to all patients to continue success in their recovery after treatment.

Do patients experience withdrawals?

As soon as NTR starts, the necessary amino acids are incorporated into the nerve junctions (called synapses) and neurotransmission steadily normalizes with the passing of each hour. This action minimizes withdrawal symptoms to a level generally far below what one would experience with mere discontinuation of the drug. The withdrawal symptoms patients do have are generally mild and usually resolved by the third or fourth day of treatment.
