What is Low Dose Naltrexone?
Low dose naltrexone is a prescription of the drug, Naltrexone, but in a much smaller dosage. Traditionally, naltrexone was and is currently used to help treat addicts and alcoholics. It has been shown to help recovering addicts and alcoholics endure the debilitating symptoms of withdrawal and keep them sober by improving their quality of life.
Using a small fraction of the traditional dose of naltrexone, patients suffering from a wide variety of medical conditions could see a vast improvement in their quality of life as well.
Low dose naltrexone works by binding to the opioid receptors in the brain. When this happens, the body begins to produce a substantial amount of endorphins—our body’s feel good hormone. Not only will this improve your mood, but increased production of endorphins has been shown to fight and even diminish the growth of the bad cells that cause the medical issues we endure.
Conditions Low Dose Naltrexone Could Treat
Low dose naltrexone has been successful in treating a wide array of medical conditions. Everything from autoimmune disorders and certain types of cancers, to pediatric conditions and chronic pain conditions could benefit from treatment with LDN. Some more common conditions physicians determine low dose naltrexone could help include:
- Kawasaki’s disease
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Celiac disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Guillain-Barré syndrome
- Parkinson’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Panic disorder
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
These are just a few of the countless medical conditions that could see a reduction in their symptoms after treatment with low dose naltrexone. Your doctor can give you a better idea of whether you are a good candidate for LDN after reviewing your medical history and symptoms.
