The name of this drug should be in every American’s medical lexicon, but it’s not. Ask someone what Low Dose Naltrexone is, more commonly referred to as LDN, and you might get a blank stare. Considering the wide range of serious health conditions that LDN can help, it is astounding that more doctors don’t familiarize their patients with it.

LDN was first approved for use in the 1980s when it was utilized to block the effects of heroin and opiates. Doctors discovered that in low doses, LDN had beneficial effects for people suffering from HIV and AIDS. By the 1990s, LDN was being used in cancer cases, disorders of the central nervous system, and for autoimmune diseases like lupus. Some of the most dramatic recovery stories I’ve read have come from multiple sclerosis patients.

LDN does not work for everyone, but its effects on some patients are so amazing that some call it a miracle drug. It seems like a crime not to tell people with HIV, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and other life-changing and potentially life-threatening disorders that there may be help in the form of a simple, relatively inexpensive prescription.
