Hear all about Low-Dose Naltrexone from Pam W. Smith, MD, MPH – an Anti-Aging Medicine Specialist.
Dr. Smith is an international expert on LDN and was a guest speaker at the first international LDN conference in Australia in 2019. Dr. Smith created and teaches many of the modules that certify MDs, pharmacists and NPs to become board-certified as functional practitioners. For the past decade Dr. Berkson and Dr. Smith have often lectured together most recently, team teaching a 16-hr. hormone course a few months ago in Salt Lake, City.
Naltrexone is used in high dosages in the ER for drug overdosages.
In smaller dosages (micro amounts to typically 4.5 mg) is referred to as “Low-Dose Naltrexone” known mostly often as its acronym: LDN.
LDN has many uses. For example LDN: boosts immune function, tamps down unhealthy inflammation, stops cancer tumor growth and metastases, helps auto-immune diseases go into remission, and much more.
Clinical reports on LDN have demonstrated many possible benefits in diverse diseases such as fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, complex-regional pain syndrome, Hailey-Hailey disease, and cancer.
In this show you will learn:
- Dose ranges of LDN.
- How to properly take LDN.
- The use of ultra-low dosages.
- LDN use for chronic pain and how it may reduce the need for opioids.
- How LDN is used adjunctively for MS, RA, and other auto-immune diseases as well as inflammatory bowel diseases.
- How it works as a promising immunomodulatory agent by binding to opioid receptors in or on immune cells and tumor cells.
- Why many functional doctors are prescribing it for “all” auto-immune and cancer patients.
Naltrexone is a drug and thus any patient can have a reaction but adverse reactions are very rare.
