Low dose Naltrexone Therapy For Neurodegenerative Diseases and Autoimmune Disorders
What is Naltrexone?
Naltrexone is a prescription drug, classified as an opiate antagonist on immune cells and on opiate/endorphine receptors. It is most commonly used for chronic fatigue, multiple sclerosis, myelagic encephalopathy, autoimmune disease, thyroid and various cancers and has been treating these medical conditions since 1985 with great efficacy. Naltrexone helps to increase endorphin release, reduces the speed of unwanted cells growing, and manages the immune system from becoming overactive.
How does the treatment work ?
Naltrexone is a prescription drug, so your physician would give you a prescription after deciding if LDN appears appropriate for you. The prescription can be shipped directly to you from our specialized compounding pharmacy.
Naltrexone works to antagonise the immune cells by antagonizing “TLR” (toll-like receptors) immune cells, and suppressing the immune system. Naltrexone also works by suppressing TLR-mediated production of NF-kB, thus, reducing inflammation and potentially reducing oncogene (genes that can transform cells into tumour-like cells) production.
Naltrexone also works to antagonize the opiate/endorphin receptors, which, as a result, increases endorphin release.
How do I know if I am a good candidate for this treatment?
If you suffer from a neurodegenerative disease such as multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disorder such as lupus, psoriasis, irritable bowel disorder, ulcerative colitis, scleroderma, Crohn’s disease, low dose naltrexone therapy can help you!
