Post Low Dose Naltrexone...

I am currently taking low dose Naltrexone for my MS but I have read on the website that it helps with Parkinsons as well. I've been on it for about 16 months now and so far so good. I am so hoping that it will do what is meant to do and that is to halt progression of my disease. Perhaps it could help you all too. Goodluck and Godbless....

Perhaps it would help if I explained exactly how the low dose naltrexone works. Naltrexone taken in such a low almost homeopathic dose of 4.5mg as opposed to the 50 mg FDA dose causes the body to create a large amount of endorphins. Kind of like when you run or do aerobics. Anyway, Dr. Bihari in New York believes that all auto immune diseases are more the cause of low endorphins which compromises the immune system.The same with cancer and aids. Once you upregulate the endorphins back to normal,that in turn regulates the immune system back to normal. He has been working with this approach for many years with cancer and aids patients with great success. One can only hope that one day this therapy will get to the mainstream. I for one don't have time for a multi -million dollar clinical trial for this. Believe me it works. Just wish I was more familiar with how it might help with Parkinsons. Dr. Bihari was just interviewed on a radio station in NY....wbai and I was able to obtain an audio tape of it...quite fascinating. Good luck to all and I sure hope that you all find what works for you...{{{hugs}}}
