About 6 months ago my brilliant naturopath suggested I research low dose naltrexone or LDN as an optional tool in my healthcare. I gave it a try, and only in hindsight after letting prescription refill linger for 2 months did I realize what a huge positive impact it has had on my health. I restarted taking LDN daily about a month ago and had immediate improved energy, concentration and lessening of food sensitivities. I am attempting to get a prescription for my son (recently diagnosed with inattentive ADHD and MCAD) – it is an uphill battle. There is quite a bit of data online supporting LDN for pediatric chrons, PANDAS and autism behaviors. I am determined to find help for him. Thank goodness for the Internet.
/// Update regarding low dose naltrexone::: the medicine helped in so many ways, my favorite being ending shingles recurrences (10 plus outbreaks last year! Grr) However– since discovering iodine deficiency and supplementing that, I’ve dropped ldn and have even better results. Ldn did bridge the gap! ///
