Low Dose Naltrexone LDNWhile we do try to approach most problems using natural agents to support the body, occasionally there are helpful and safe pharmaceutical options.  Low Dose Naltrexone has been around for many years, and has a strong record of safety at these low doses.  While it was initially used primarily for pain and MS, it has now proven effective for a wide variety of auto-immune diseases.  

Naltrexone works by blocking opiate receptors in the brain, thereby tricking the body into believing there is a lack of endorphin and metenkephalin production.  The result is a natural response by the body to increase the production of these helpful messengers.  One of the proposed mechanisms of LDN is that it helps to balance the Th1 and Th2 imbalance present in most autoimmune diseases. 

If you are having a tough time battling a chronic condition, please call for a consult to see if LDN might be right for you!

Success Stories using LDN

 

Additional Info about LDN at the ICIM

While high doses of Naltrexone have been shown to cause liver dysfunction, the doses used in LDN (1-5mg vs 200mg) have never resulted in such an effect in any published study we've seen.  Therefore, this is regarded as a safe therapy with few side effects.  One complaint we occasionally get is the onset of more vivid dreams.  For some patients this is merely interesting, but others find it disturbing. 

LDN does require an Rx prescription from a licensed practitioner, so you must call to schedule an appointment with our Nurse Practitioner at 208-629-5374
