Theo Verwey, a trailblazing pioneer in the field of NAD Therapy, emerged as the driving force behind the integration of this revolutionary treatment into the medical landscape.

    Amid a scarcity of scientific research papers on the subject, Verwey fearlessly embarked on a difficult journey to enlighten medical and healthcare professionals about the potential of NAD Therapy. Undeterred by skepticism and opposition, he passionately reached out to doctors, nurses, counsellors, churches and specialists, sharing the remarkable relief that NAD Therapy could bring to countless patients suffering from various conditions.

    In 1995, Theo Verwey, alongside a dedicated team of medical professionals, founded the Alkogen Clinic, an epicenter of research and innovation in the realm of NAD Therapy. With relentless determination, they conducted numerous studies and extensive blood tests, gathering feedback from over 12,000 patients and their loved ones. Through these endeavors, Theo gained invaluable insights into the profound effects of NAD deficiency and NAD/NADH disruption in various disorders and diseases.

    Theo Verwey's unwavering commitment to NAD Therapy and his revolutionary strides in advancing its understanding and application have transformed countless lives. Through his profound dedication and advocacy, he has become revered as the Father of NAD Therapy, leaving an indelible mark on the medical community and offering hope and healing to those in need. His legacy continues to inspire and drive advancements in the realm of mental health and addiction treatment, proving that even in the face of daunting challenges, a passionate and visionary individual can bring about lasting positive change.

    In his notes, Theo remarked: “Science has a lot more to discover about inborn NAD deficiencies and how they relate to mental and physiological disorders. Then there is a disruption in NAD/NADH ratio with age, even when very low-calorie diets are followed by most of the elderly. During 2018, more than 500 NAD levels were tested in Namibia on mature people between the ages of 40-90. Most of them followed a low-calorie diet. Yet the average NAD/NADH ratio was 11/89. Almost all professional sportspeople tested, were measured with low NAD/NADH ratios.”

    In the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, 2003, Vol.18 #1, pages 43-46, Prof John P. Cleary M.D. wrote:

    “In 1987, I started to work in the lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Medical School and continued until I retired in August 2001. I now live on my farm outside Cross Plains, Wisconsin, and try to carry on my quest to make this treatment more available to the suffering public.

    I feel that Alkogen has done what I hoped we could have done at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I congratulate them on carrying out my dream. God has truly blessed us all.”

    Dr. Abram Hoffer, a psychiatrist with a Ph.D. in biochemistry, honored by the Institute for Functional Medicine as one of the top 5 pioneers of new medicine for the 21st Century, wrote the following about Theo's work:

    “For these reasons, I consider the information in ‘NAD Therapy! Too Good to be True?' so valuable and important, and I fully expect to see the corroboration of this work worldwide once it becomes known to the medical profession and even more when the general public of sick people and their families hear about it.

    The potential of NAD therapy to treat diseases is now going forward in South Africa. Theo Verwey and his group of clinicians are now the future of this movement to reform medical therapeutics.

    It is the concept of NAD as a medicine that must not be ignored; the needed research must be allowed, encouraged, the results evaluated, acknowledged, and passed on to the young physicians of today.”

    Theo Verwey consistently championed a holistic healthcare approach throughout his career. He fervently emphasized the significance of acknowledging the complete well-being of an individual. Verwey believed in the interconnected nature of the human spirit, soul, and body, understanding that each aspect profoundly influences the others. In his view, these elements are not separate entities but intricately woven together to compose the beauty of the human being. This holistic perspective underscored Verwey's commitment to recognizing and addressing the multifaceted aspects that contribute to a person's overall health and vitality.

    Theo Verwey's closing notes: “Treating a person with chronic pain may involve not only medication but also incorporating nutrient deficiencies, which are a lack or shortage of a functional entity, by less than normal or necessary supply or function. Stress-reduction techniques, physical therapy, beauty therapy, and counselling are just as important to enhance their overall quality of life. Similarly, in mental health, a holistic approach may involve combining therapy with nutrient deficiencies, lifestyle changes, social support, and mindfulness practices. This comprehensive strategy recognizes that health is interconnected, and addressing various factors leads to more effective and sustainable outcomes for patients. By adopting a holistic perspective, healthcare professionals can better understand and cater to the unique needs of individuals, promoting a more balanced and enduring state of well-being.”
