What is Low-Dose Naltrexone?
Naltrexone is an FDA-approved medication that was originally developed for the purpose of treating opioid and heroin addictions. However recently, smaller amounts of the drug (low-dose naltrexone or LDN) have been shown in clinical trials to be effective in treating a number of autoimmune diseases, central nervous system disorders and even certain cancers.
Low-dose naltrexone (LDN) works by boosting your natural immune system. LDN works by increasing endorphin production. These endorphins stimulate your body’s natural defenses against disease, disorder and illness. This makes low-dose naltrexone ideal for treating a variety of conditions, even where other medicine has failed.
LDN treatment for an adult typically consists of a 3 - 4.5 mg dose. This dose is taken orally, daily and may vary depending on the condition being treated.

Low-dose naltrexone can be effective in the treatment of a large variety of conditions. Some of the autoimmune diseases that can be treated with LDN include:
