I have heard of low dose naltrexone and Parkinson’s disease. Some people with Parkinson’s symptoms seem to have some success taking Low Dose naltrexone. Have you heard of this and how do you dose it?
Low Dose Naltrexone and Parkinson’s Disease
Click on the purple arrow below to hear my research findings regarding the use of low dose naltrexone as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease.
Many people are on the hunt for a sure fire therapy that will eliminate all symptoms. I have certainly never identified such a solution and doubt any will ever be found. There are dozens of therapies that do facilitate a reversal of symptoms however. I include low dose naltrexone as one of these therapies though it is a prescription medication that does have side effects.
Low dose naltrexone (LDN) is certainly not a quick fix so to speak. Why? It can take several years for the body to strengthen the immune system. Once the immune system is back on line, the body is in a position to address the imbalances that may be causing the symptoms. Of course there are other approaches for building up the immune system. Some people have had remarkable results using LDN which does require a doctor’;s prescription.
