Low dose Naltrexone; The New wonder Prescription Compound for multiple conditions

Low dose Naltrexone; The New wonder Prescription Compound for multiple conditions

Low Dose Naltrexone, How it works and what to expect, Appropriate dosing and more

LDN as a Treatment for Autoimmunity
Naltrexone is used primarily for opioid addiction, lower dose have been discovered beneficial for several chronic conditions for patients suffering from autoimmunity, cancer, and HIV or AIDS when taken at much lower doses; typically between 1.5-4.5mg. Hence the name Low-dose Naltrexone (LDN).
These lower doses helps increase the level of endorphins in our body through partial bloackage of our  opioid receptors briefly when your endorphin levels are typically highest at night at around 3AM to 4AM. This signals to your brain that our endorphin level are low, so it helps step up up the production of endorphins, eventually increasing our overall levels.

This may be beneficial for autoimmune patients due to the fact that endorphins play a role in immune system modulation. Autoimmune patients (and cancer patients) typically have lower levels of endorphins than people without autoimmunity (or cancer).

No one knows exactly how endorphins help modulate the immune system or why they are decreased in autoimmune patients, yet studies have shown anti-inflammatory benefits and a decrease in Crohns', Multiple Sclerosis, and fibromyalgia symptoms in patients who were treated with LDN.  Research is still ongoing in this very interesting medical strategy for managing many patients suffering from several chronic conditions.

LDN can be used for any autoimmune condition, although it has typically been found most effective for painful conditions. According to lowdosenaltrexone.org, patients and physicians have seen success with LDN in almost every autoimmune disease, including:

Hashimoto's.
Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Lupus.
Crohn's.
Ulcerative Colitis.
Multiple Sclerosis.
Fibromyalgia.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Celiac.
Psoriasis.
Sjogren's.
Autism.
Scleroderma.
