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! ///
I planned on writing weekly but I must get down on virtual paper : don’t forget the ketotifen!!!! Whenever consuming food over 100 calories within an hour- take ketotifen first or as soon into the eating as possible. This is for a meal or any snack over 100 calories, unless it’s liquid, or near liquid like yogurt, kefir, smoothie. I forgot to do this for last nights evening meal, and paid for it by eventually getting start of migraine today, probably 18 hour build up.
There are a couple types of mast Cell disease, a reactive anaphylactic type and a smoldering constant reaction. The latter sounds better and is less life threatening in terms of fatalities but it can destroy lives, for example by triggering constant migraines.
