Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)
People with autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia, ALS, Crohn’s Disease or Multiple Sclerosis (MS) may benefit from Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). It helps build immunity and decreases inflammation systemically.
How It Works
LDN activates the body’s natural defenses. LDN increases endorphin and enkephalin levels, which seems to activate the body’s natural killer cells. In addition, LDN restores the body’s natural endorphin levels, which has a positive impact on conditions that are affected endorphins that are either too high or too low.
LDN may benefit patients with:
• Lyme Disease
• Rheumatoid Arthritis
• Celiac Disease
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
• Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
• Ulcerative Colitis
