Smile Low Dose Naltrexone

I would hope that everyone with an Autoimmune condition would look at and consider Low Dose Naltrexone.

I have read this particular link about LDN before. I must question some of the facts about this Dr. Bihari. He claims right on this site that he had (in HIS practice) 300 cancer patients (but he's not an oncologist), 400 MS patients (but he's not a neurologist or rheumatologist), and 350 HIV/AIDS patients (but he's not an immunologist), and many more for various other conditions...all being treated BY HIM. Doesn't seem possible or why he's treating all these patients without being a specialist in any of these fields.

Sorry, I couldn't get past this to even consider anything else. But I'll be open to hearing anyone's comments if they have tried it.

You can get Low Dose Naltrexone from a local physician (not all of them of course but quite a few).

You certainly do NOT have to use this physician.

The medication cost pennies and it actually does work and help millions. There is ZERO pressure from big pharmaceutical companies and likewise there is zero money being spent to promote this because it makes NO money for them.

It doesn't work for everybody, its not a cure all, but it does work for the vast majority of people.

That wasn't my point. I questioned the fact he claimed treating hundreds upon hundreds of patients in many different fields (all himself). Especially since he isn't even specialized or certified in these fields. If I can't believe what he's claiming in regards to actual patients, how could I believe any other statements on the treatment itself.

You don't indicate that you even use it, so it sound more like a pitch...IMO

Yes, i have taken LDN but stopped to get some other health issues settled before i start taking it again.

I can use me & my encrinologist as an example. The encrinologist doesnt understand how to treat autoimmune thyroid conditions, so i see my internal medicine dr. that does. he is not an endocrinologist but he understands how to treat it.

this is an alternative medicine medication, sometimes given by a regular dr that actually decides to read the technical data.

He was a researcher. That is why he had so many patients.

As for me and using LDN, I would not be able to live without it. I can't believe how much it helps me. I have energy, I am in 40-60% less pain, which is a lot. I can funcntion. I am not one hundred percent with it, but it helps me keep going.

I have turned quite a few people on to it too. And they have all benefitted from it. Most aren't taking pain medication anymore. Other than maybe aspirin occasionally.

I can't imagine why more people don't take it because it has no side effects. Compared to the side effects from the myriads of medications I took, it is simply the best thing I have ever done for myself, despite my doctor's saying no to prescribing it. Shows how much they know! Thank goodness for the internet! We don't have to depend on them anymore. And I will be ever thankful for that!

I have no doubt low dose naltrexone (LDN) works. Every valid study confirms it. LDN works by blocking nerve endorphin receptors overnight. Does this mean endorphin is causing the problem? No, it means that foods which mimic endorphin are causing the problem. They are called exorphin opioids. Stop ingesting them.

So other than wheat and dairy, are there others. The link mostly spoke to wheat. Do you have a complete list?

Please read my post here: http://neurotalk.psychcentral.com/thread149636.html

------------------------------------------------------
......You are ingesting so many candidates that it's impossible to sort them out simply by eliminating them one-by-one. If you eliminate one, another five could continue causing the same problems. And you wouldn't know anything.

Stop smoking. Stop eating anything which tastes sweet, including fruit. Stop ingesting grassy grains (wheat, barley, rye and oats). Stop ingesting legumes (peanuts, beans and peas). Stop ingesting nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes and peppers). Stop ingesting milk and cream. Stop ingesting tree nuts.

No, don't make up the difference with other equally hazardous plant products. Fill in with meat, green non-legume veggies, rice, white corn, white cheese and animal fat. Keep this diet up for a month, then start reintroducing foods one at a time in three day increments. If you react to a food, re-eliminate it and stabilize before moving on to the next food.

......
If you follow this regime you will at least get the answers you are looking for. You will probably cure your problem. If you don't follow this regime, you won't know much about it .......ever.
------------------------------------------------------


It's possible wheat elimination could fix the problem. More likely the solution lies in elimination of wheat plus a combination of other foods.

The Neurotalk forum is an autoimmune disease forum. So why the "Neurotalk" name?

Speaking for myself .....Because autoimmune diseases all stem from an opioid-induced autoimmune attack against the nerve transduction processes which control organs. The various bulletin boards are divided parallel to the way the medical profession is divided, by body part.

These diseases have different symptoms, but they share common pathways and common causes.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, it usually is more complicated than just wheat. I just thought you had a list of what the exorphin opioids containing food are.

And yes, there are common threads with all disease process and many can be attributed to the foods we consume or other toxins in our environment.
