Linda Elsegood suffered from MS and was wheelchair-bound, when she first heard about LDN, low dose naltrexone. She researched it and began taking it around 2000. Her health and life turned around. Motivated to help others, she has since edited "The LDN book" and hosted conferences to educate medical professionals and lay people alike. 

LDN can be an effective treatment for a variety of autoimmune disorders including alopecia (hair loss), Crohn's, cancer, autism, depression, restless leg syndrome, asthma, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and Lyme disease. Though it is a pharmaceutical drug, many consider it to be a sort of holistic medication, because of its safety and efficacy.

 

In this episode, you'll hear about the original uses of LDN and its off-label uses that are showing tremendous success. You'll her about the doctors who are currently conducting studies to learn more; and discover resources to educate yourself on LDN. All in all, you will learn much and find Linda's personal story compelling and her efforts to help others, inspiring.

    Linda - Please help. My son is 30 years old. He developed Ulcerative Colitis when he was in high school. The doctors told him he had to use anti-inflammatories and steroids the rest of his life. We think the UC was caused by the ONLY time he ever took antibiotics in his life when he had bad acne and was prescribed them (later research says that particular one causes UC). My poor son. He has had years of misery - uncontrolled bowel movements, cramping and weight loss. We decided not to go the horrible Pharma way since we believed they caused it in the first place. He has eaten gluten-free for years and has done numerous cleansing methods including bone broth fasting, essential oils, homeopathics for diarrhea, herbs and acupressure. He still has it but it is substantially better and he gained back the 30 pounds he lost and looks well. However, he has married and he and his wife want to have children and after a year of trying they went for testing and found out he is not making sperm. They are devastated. Might LDN help his immune system in this case and what dosing should he be using? Thank you for all you do - Ann Harlan
