LDN for Parkinson s Disease

LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) is a proven-safe (by the FDA in 50mg doses!) off-label prescription drug which has gained a great deal of attention over the past few months due to its remarkable disease modifying effects of controlling and reversing symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. Lexie is one person who has experienced a reversal of most of her Parkinsons Disease symptoms over the past 5 years. She was officially diagnosed with Parkinsons disease in 2008 (although her non-motor symptoms began 20 years earlier). In this question and answer format with Robert Rodgers, PhD from Parkinsons Recovery, Lexie offers detailed information about her experience with taking LDN. She has been able to titrate off her daily use of traditional PD medications, while controlling and reversing most of her own PD symptoms, thanks to LDN. Many doctors are not familiar with LDN as a treatment for Parkinson's symptoms. It is a prescription medication, so a prescription from a doctor is necessary. Lexie offers suggestions about how to discuss a request for a LDN prescription from your doctor and offers specific suggestions about where to get LDN once a prescription is in hand. This interview was originally published in Pioneers of Recovery, a series of stories by people who succeeded in reversing their Parkinson's symptoms using one modality or another. Lexie's story of recovery centers on the use of LDN which has been so beneficial to her own recovery from Parkinsons Disease.

The LDN Book, Volume 2 is both a resource for practitioners, pharmacists, and patients, and a renewed call for further research on a little-known drug with big potential.

The LDN Book  Volume Two

A drug that is simultaneously affordable, devoid of severe side effects, and applicable to a wide range of diseases is one not often found in the modern pharmaceutical landscape. But as medical professionals and researchers alike have found, Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) boasts this remarkable combination. LDN, originally prescribed in higher doses as a treatment for opioid addiction, works by blocking opioid receptors, thereby stimulating the production of endorphins, mitigating the inflammatory process, and stabilizing the immune response. Prescribed off-label and administered in small daily doses, this generic drug has proven useful in treating many different ailments. Expanding on the information presented in The LDN Book, Volume 1—which showcased LDN’s efficacy in treating conditions such as lupus, thyroiditis, autism spectrum disorder, and chronic fatigue—Volume 2 highlights the latest clinical trials, case studies, and research on LDN. More than a dozen medical professionals explain how they are using LDN to help patients suffering from chronic pain, Parkinson’s disease, dermatologic conditions, traumatic brain injury, Lyme disease, and more. The LDN Book, Volume 2 is both a resource for practitioners, pharmacists, and patients, and a renewed call for further research on a little-known drug with big potential.

The Promise of Low Dose Naltrexone Therapy

Naltrexone is an opiate antagonist drug developed in the 1970s and approved by the FDA in 1984 for opiate and drug abuse treatment. When used at much lower doses in an off-label protocol referred to as low dose naltrexone (LDN), the drug has been shown to halt disease progression in Crohn’s disease and certain cancers, to reduce symptoms in multiple sclerosis and autism, and to improve numerous autoimmune and neurodegenerative conditions, including Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Grounded in clinical and scientific research, this book describes the history of naltrexone, its potential therapeutic uses, its effects on the immune system, its pharmacological properties, and how the drug is administered. It also lists fillers and compounding pharmacies, doctors who prescribe LDN, and patient resources, and includes interviews with LDN patients and researchers.

LDN Reimagined

Remember the first time you saw a glowing yellow street light through the raindrops scattered across your window? Or snow falling onto the palm of your hand and watched it morph into a variety of shapes before disappearing? Or as you become older, how the tower that use to be a giant in the sky, is now just clumps of metal and concrete?One day walking home from work, I saw a face in the tower; I had never seen this face before. It had two bright red eyes that looked over the whole of London and was so vivid it stuck in my mind for days. I decided to scribble it down and start looking at what else I could see. I found flowers, sharks, spiders, jinns, soldiers, lasers; the imagination held no limits.Enter a surreal vision of London you will never have seen before; you may never look at it the same way again.

Up the Creek with a Paddle

The story is simple. It is about love, life and hope. After years of battling with the onslaught of her husbands Multiple Sclerosis, Mary stumbled on a little known doctor in New York City, Dr. Bernard Bihari. Many people were making very bold claims about his work on the Internet. They claimed that Dr. Bihari knew how to stop every type of MS from progressing. Even better, it was claimed that he could help everyone with an autoimmune disorder, ranging from psoriasis to AIDS. It was claimed that Dr. Bihari could help them with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). Eventually, Marys husband took a leap of faith and put Dr. Biharis work to the test. LDN worked. It stopped his MS from progressing. Her uncle with Parkinsons Disease also tried it. Again LDN worked. It stopped his Parkinsons from progressing. Since September 2002, a world-wide campaign has ignited with passionate momentum, to get the already FDA-approved drug medically recognized for treating MS and all autoimmune disorders. LDN is cheap and has no known side effects. The ambition is for LDN to hit the masses and improve the lives of millions. The trials are near, making this a very exciting time for the LDN community and everyone who suffers from an autoimmune disorder.

Healing Our Autistic Children

Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with a disease on the autism spectrum--including ADD, learning disabilities, Asperger's, Autism, and PDD--making it today's most common childhood disability. While the medical establishment treats autism as a psychiatric condition and prescribes behaviorally based therapies, Dr. Julie A. Buckley argues that it is a physiological disease that must be medically treated. Part personal story of her battle to heal her autistic daughter, part guide for parents, Healing Our Autistic Children explains simply and accessibly the new treatments and diets that have already proven effective for many families. Told through the case studies of her patients, the book is divided into four typical visits to Dr. Buckley's pediatric practice so that parents can see the progression of initial treatment. Written in a warmly engaging voice, parents new to the diagnosis will: - learn about clinical treatments that work - understand how different foods affect the body and how to begin implementing diets - learn to navigate the medical system and advocate for their child - bridge the communication gap with their pediatrician - discover that recovery is possible
