Thomas Ingoglia joined Mark Young at RAADfest 2017 to talk about NAD (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), a molecule showing great potential for its anti-aging effects, as well as helping people with addiction recovery and chronic health conditions.
Ingoglia discusses the treatments available at the NAD Treatment Center, describing what people wanting to maintain their health would get out of the intravenous infusion of NAD offered. This includes an increase in energy, pain reduction, increased physical performance and more.
He also suggests what a person should do in order to live beyond 120.

About the guest:
Thomas Ingoglia is the business director at NAD Treatment Center. He is a private investor with a master’s degree in finance. In the midst of trading, investing in technology and developing real estate in Costa Rica, Tom became very sick. He was initially prescribed antibiotics, suffered from an adverse reaction and was told that he’d have stomach problems for the rest of his life. In the years that followed, Tom also developed severe food allergies. His symptoms worsened, and he next began dealing with insomnia, anxiety, muscle pain, tedinopathies, joint pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, altered and clouded cognition and headaches. He finally had a mental breakdown in 2008.
After a prolonged period of taking antibiotics, Tom began experiencing tendonitis throughout his fingers, hands, wrists and ankles and feet, so he started taking pain medications to relieve this pain. He had to give up his career in trading because his sole focus for the next eight years would be on finding a cure to his growing symptoms.
Tom’s life consisted of working with physical therapists, going to the gym, going to new doctors, and trying new foods to see if it would help. “I was in the prison of constant pain, and would try anything, any place, that might help.”
Throughout Tom’s eight-year battle, he was prescribed consistently and persistently more medication. For six years, he was taking excessive amounts of Hydrocodone and Tramadol every day.
Tom became obsessed with researching symptoms and treatments and learned about the NAD+ treatment. He visited a clinic, and on Day 7 of his treatment, “It hit me. I started feeling better. I felt amazing. There was a calm that came over me. I felt safe. I just had no cravings for drugs or pain meds. There was no need for them. I just didn’t have the excruciating pain that I had before. I felt eight years of pain melting away.
Tom’s pain began to dissipate, and he started getting his energy back. “I was so paranoid of relapses, because they had happened in the past, but over the course of the following months I started feeling better, just as the clinic had predicted. Finally, I got my sanity back.”
More than a year later, Tom has nearly fully recovered, from both his illness and his cravings for pain medications. He’s immersed himself in better understanding the NAD+ that saved his life, along with related treatments, and has engaged two cofounders to assist him in building out a facility to help bring this treatment to others in similar situations.
