Over the years, many people have asked me about LDN, and quite a few of my patients have been on it. I’ve always been open minded to it, but never been quite sure – sometimes initial euphoria has not been followed by people being free of disease activity, and then I’ve wondered if that euphoria has been due more to the action of the drug.
There’s a huge amount of anecdotal evidence ( people’s stories) about LDN being used successfully in many diseases, especially auto-immune disease, and I remain open- minded, however, it was interesting for me to read this blog post of the clinical papers on LDN, compiled together here:
So I think I’m going to stick to recommending whatever drug therapy seems appropriate for you, along with a Plant based whole food diet, with as little saturated fat as practicable, 20g omega 3 cold pressed flax seed oil, high dose vitamin D3, sunshine, exercise, and meditation as per overcomingms approach; plus checking your personal food intolerances and reducing everything that causes inflammation – stress, toxicity, sugar, refined foods, pathogens, as per functional medicine. :0
hello miranda i think you are so right in what you said .what works for one may not for another
Thanks Linda 🙂
Miranda, I completely agree on the advice you give. I do personally take LDN but I don’t believe it has any affect on my current medications..
Thanks, I’m always interested to hear about people’s expereince with LDN… it’s been a topic of interest to me for years. What’s your experience?
