267 pages including over 100 page appendix with the latest LDN information – Show it to your doctor !

You can read the entire book at the site if you’re broke.  If you’re not broke, please consider buying it.  You won’t be sorry !

From the Back Cover:

Diagnosed with Progressive Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis, Joseph Wouk, youngest son of novelist Herman Wouk refuses to accept the doctor’s opinion that there is nothing more to be done for his medical condition.  He plans to go to the Amazon to try to cure himself with a Shaman’s ayahuasca ceremony.

The book begins as a journal entitled, PLACEBO – A Rationalist Seeks a Miracle Cure.  Wouk, a hardened western rationalist has no patience for spooks or spirits or any other new age wishful thinking.  His plan is to try to delude himself with psychedelics into thinking he is cured – Thereby activating the placebo effect to cure himself for real.

He covers all the bases: From Buddhism to Judaism.  From quantum physics to Gödel’s incompleteness theorem.  From alternative medicine to the Metaphysics of Quality.

Told with humor and honesty, Wouk pulls the reader through his thought processes as he watches his mind dissolve from the subcortical dementia caused by his particular variant of MS.

Right before he is scheduled to leave for Peru, all his MS symptoms suddenly disappear.  The only drug he was taking was Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).

The second part of the book is entitled: LDN – Miracle Cure Found !  After his symptoms disappear, Wouk finds out that LDN has been stopping the progress of Progressive MS for 20 years.  It also has been helping cancer victims, AIDS patients, Parkinson’s sufferers, and a host of other immune system related diseases.

Naltrexone was FDA approved only to treat recovering addicts.  The low dose version works its magic by tripling the body’s production of endorphins.  This restores the immune system to full operation; hence the drug’s ability to help so many diseases.  It doesn’t fight the diseases; the body fights them once the immune system is restored.  Because it is now out of patent, no one will spend the millions required for FDA approval.

Google LDN ! is Wouk’s attempt at Dana Paramita, the Buddhist version of Christian “good works”.

The book includes a hundred page appendix with the most up to date information about LDN and its effects on immune system related diseases.

You’ll laugh and cry through the first part of the book and be inspired by the second part.

A man who refuses to give up in the face of insurmountable odds ends up completely healed despite the hopelessness that western medicine tells him he faces.

Those with Cancer should go to the site LDN4CANCER for the best info and links.

UK Residents – Please go to LDNnow.com to sign the petition to 10 Downing to fund trials for LDN.

The last words of the book:

My dream is that this book will encourage those suffering as I did to take heart.

There is hope.

Don’t listen to the conventional wisdom.

Don’t listen to me, either.

Just Google LDN!

And find out for yourselves.

All MS patients – Send your doctor to read this new study

A pilot trial of low-dose naltrexone in primary progressive multiple sclerosis.

Institute of Experimental Neurology (INSPE) and Department of Neurology, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Via Olgettina 58, Milan, Italy.

A sixth month phase II multicenter-pilot trial with a low dose of the opiate antagonist Naltrexone (LDN) has been carried out in 40 patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). The primary end points were safety and tolerability. Secondary outcomes were efficacy on spasticity, pain, fatigue, depression, and quality of life. Clinical and biochemical evaluations were serially performed. Protein concentration of beta-endorphins (BE) and mRNA levels and allelic variants of the mu-opiod receptor gene (OPRM1) were analyzed. Five dropouts and two major adverse events occurred. The remaining adverse events did not interfere with daily living. Neurological disability progressed in only one patient. A significant reduction of spasticity was measured at the end of the trial. BE concentration increased during the trial, but no association was found between OPRM1 variants and improvement of spasticity. Our data clearly indicate that LDN is safe and well tolerated in patients with PPMS.

  1. I was diagnosed in 2006 and suffer from ataxia, difficulty walking, pain and extreme fatigue. I currently take Avonex and the side effects are horrid. I cant believe i can even work a full time job. All I do is sleep when Im not working and sometimes i sleep on my lunch hour. I dont feel like doing anything but laying around. I to work out and play golf. I am so sick of this disease. Please help.

  2. How exciting for you to be able to discover LDN and desoxyn! I got on LDN to see if would help my chief MS complaint – brain drain. It didn’t, though it helped with my attitude towards it. It did help where I can’t feel the jawbone infection in my face, I could easily give up wheat and dropped the pounds fast, my eyesight improved. Now you have given me hope that I may get my attention span back. Will do more research.

    Regarding Kim’s query on the fatigue, all I can say is get yourself on evening primrose oil. I started on it 20 years ago and if I ever ran out or forgot to take it for a while, the afternoon fatigue would come on during Oprah and go away after Dan Rather every day. It’s anti-imflamatory action is helpful with MS. PMS,arthritis, sjogren’s, alcoholism, depression. LDN may do more for you as well. It’s all a healing opportunity and and it is up to US to solve it.

  3. I fervently believe that multiple autoimmune disorders are due to the adverse effects of a fungus (malassezia furfur). The resulting diseases/conditions are: Parkinson’s, m.s., psoriasis, diabetes, & other autoimmune disorders. The evidence is very clear when mapping these conditions just within my own family circle. It also frustrates me that no one takes this situation seriously although family disease mapping should make this apparent. However, the first step for society is acknowledgement.

    Hi there, this is posting #2 (see above) since I started on LDN on 8/26. Fantastic and exciting are the two words that come to mind! Day one, I saw almost complete correction of my bladder issues, restored balance and did not feel the typical morning stiffness. Also, I did not get the daily mid-day fatigue that I have been dealing with. Now at day 7, I have gained more strength each day, my bladder acts normally and I realized that I was walking around my house for half the morning and forgetting to grab my cane! I DID NOT NEED IT! It is pretty freaky but my word, how simple!! The other very interesting thing was the skin mottling that I had developed in my right leg last fall. Due to confused nerves, the blood circulation was poor and my leg was always red, more recently purple in color. No discomfort, just cold to the touch. Last weekend, I noticed that my coloring was pretty well back to normal. The reduced fatigue and increased strength has been a wonderful change and I look forward to beginning to work out and build my core muscle strength next week. I just realized that there couldn’t be any harm in laying off the Tysabri for a few weeks to give this a shot….it’s not like I was getting anywhere with the Tysabri. I am SO glad I decided to try this. Good luck everyone! Brynn

  6. Hi Diane,

    That’s so nice of you to write to my blog. I originally believed what you wrote, that “some people are so use to being sick or disappointed they cannot let go of it.” Events on the board ended up convincing me otherwise.

    The attacks made no sense from the get-go. I only posted my own experience or interesting pieces I found on the internet. I never once attacked or even spoke about anybody else on the board. And yet, I discerned a pattern in all the craziness. I was reminded of my New Left college experiences where political factions would be fighting with one another. Each faction would vocally and enthusiastically support anything said by one of their members. No matter how pointless. No matter how stupid.

    It was this repetitive chorus of automatic agreement from the same 5 or so people over and over and over that finally convinced me that this was not random incoherence from sick people at all. It was a very well planned, systematic method of making sure that anyone mentioning LDN in the forum would be marginalize as a “far-out” deluded fool. In my case they got to throw in “drug crazed” as well.

    The reaction of the administration to what was happening made it clear that this was no chance event. The ominous semi-threats sent to my web site by Got.MS (we had the IP address remember?) at JCA’s direction (I had drawn a line in the sand concerning her attacks on Gracie 10 minutes earlier) evoked no response at all. They actually told me that since the threats were received at a site other than PLM, it was not their concern. I understood then what should have been clear from the beginning. They were bought out as well, and may have even coordinated the attacks with the attackers.

    Think about it. If you ran a forum that was supposed to really help sick people, would you let that kind of thing go on? Would you let people be driven out of your forum by that kind of behaviour? Or would you warn the troublemakers and then boot them if they continued?

    That group was never called to task for anything they did or said. Tim suggested that all LDN posts be put in one thread. OK, but why only LDN and not all the other treatments?

    After I escaped that place, people wrote to me telling me that I was only the latest in a long series of people who had been attacked, marginalized and forced to quit the board by the SAME group of people. I wasn’t in the least bit surprised.

    You see, this experience answered for me in part the reason why more than 20 years after its potential benefits to auto immune sufferers was discovered, LDN remained essentially unknown to anyone except a select few. That’s why my friend Rivka died a horrible death from multiple myloma. When I researched the disease, any mention of LDN was simply too far down in Google for me to find. If I had know to search instead for “LDN” she would likely be alive and healthy today.

    That’s what I am going to try to do with my book. I’m not going to bother with forums anymore until I get it published. I want everybody to know to at least check out LDN on Google and decide for themselves whether to give it a try. In a weird way, I feel like that’s the reason my life was spared. I have to do this. It feels like the Blues Brothers movie. You know, “We’re on a mission from God…”

    I don’t believe in that kind of “God” per se. I don’t really “believe” anything having to do with stuff like that. My good friend, Robert Anton Wilson used to say, “belief begins where thinking ends”, and I try to “believe” nothing as a consequence. But some events cause one to behave as if one believed. This is one of those times for me.

    Just check back on my blog for the latest. I’m not planning on posting anywhere else for now. And again, thank you for your kind words. It helps make up for the really awful experience I had on PLM.

    Warmest,

    Joe

  7. I LOVE the compassionate way you write about MS, it’s affects, and LDN. Because of you, I ‘finally’ persevered and found a doctor that will give me a prescription for it. I would like to know what compounding pharmacy you use, and, more importantly, how much LDN you take on a daily basis.

    For the past two years, I have walked like a zombie and use a walker, (which I hate), for balance, I thank God that, after 30 years of having MS, my ONLY symptom is a weak left leg.

    On August 7, 2008 I will get the LDN. Perhaps I will then be able to play on the floor with my 7 grandbabies, all under 5. And, it would be wonderful if I could take them on the train to NYC, 50 miles from my home in Danbury, Ct) and go to the art museums, galleries, etc.

    I am so happy that LDN worked for you, and so rapidly. I hope it does the same for me.

    I will most assuredly purchase your book.

    Warm regards,

  9. I started LDN 3 mg dose a month & half ago. I felt my incontinence is much better. I am just wondering if a higher dose will give me more mobility? I have chronic Progressive MS since 25 years. I am on a scooter around the house. I use my walker for short distances when I go out.
    I hope to walk without my walker. Should I increase the 3 mg I am taking to 4 or 5 mg? Will it do me any harm?
    Please advise. My GP who prescribe it to me does not know enough about it. Thanks for your cooperation.

  11. I have been on LDN for 3 years, and am a huge advocate here in California. I did all the “traditional therapies” for years only to see my condition worsen. I had horrific pain and lived on morphine, norco and oxycottin for years. Just when I was giving up on life my husband found LDN the best thing I could have ever done in treating my MS. Read my story on http://www.LDNers.org. In May I did a 53 mile walk to our capitol bringing more awareness to this MUCH needed drug.
    Kudos on the book:)I made a few posts on Patients Like Me last year, I got kicked off:( I also will be attending the conf. in LA!!!

  12. Hai Joseph,
    I’m on Ty. I hate knowing what happened to those peeple in Eu.
    however, I am getting to the poynt where I am moving into SPMS, still having relapses, but symptoms never get much better in between. I am far into this game, and when you reach the point where you are in pain all the time without all the meds, it’s hard to say “Oh yeah, I’ll just drop all of these drugs that make it possible for me to keep going with my life” so that I could switch over to LDN, when there’s so little long term data: I jst cain’t do it, Joseph! So, I hope you don’t mind, but I think I’ll just watch and see what happens for you, and then I’ll make a decision in abt a yr r so. ‘sat ok wit you? I’ll be watcshin ur blog, dood!

    I understand why u left PLM, I m only staying to keep n touch w/ a few peeple, but I m pretty diz gusted with the PLM staff. It seems pretty obvious at thiz point that all they care abt iz having us fill out th liddle chartz so that they kin try to sell them to big drug companies. One subject I feel is reely pertinent iz comorbidities, especially otter autoimmune disorders. Whut makes our immune systems go berzerk? I have a few theories of my own, but I’m not sure I want to talk abt thz yet.

    I was prescribed my LDN by the same doctor at the same time as the Tysabri. When I asked about potential conflicts he laughed and said that the dose of LDN was so small that there was nothing to worry about.

    He’s considered the top MS specialist on the west coast. Dr. Goodin at UCSF.

    Came across your ms information. Do you remember me? I met you on the QE2 in 1978 and we danced the night away. You came to Vassar for a visit…long ago. Coincidentally, I married a Neurologist, have 2 sons 13 and 10 and have just returned from 2 weeks in Israel. Had a Bar M. at the top of Masada.How old are your boys? My father died last year from multiple myeloma and I only wish I saw this drug earlier. He died fast and horribly in New York columbia presbyterian – terrible care.

    How long have you been using Tysabri with LDN? I have RRMS and I’ve been on Tysabri for 6 months. Honestly I don’t neccesarily see any improvement yet other than I’m not any worse.
    I’m now collecting testimonials from patients using both together to give my neuro doc who is very reluctant at this point.

    Wish I were a better writer but will post my comments when done. Whatever it looks like it will be an honest review.

    I have had MS since 1988 and using LDN since 2005 so I am a bit experienced in both.

    I am beind everything you’re doing brother and willing to help in any way that I can.

    You are the ball of fire we have been waiting for.

  27. This is wonderful information and it is so great to see the word getting out, and wonderful it is helping patients with MS.
    However, I think there is not enough emphasis put on all of the other autoimmune diseases and cancers that are getting benefits and results using LDN. It seems that MS is the only one really getting all the attention. I fear when people with other diseases come to these web sites, they are not encouraged to seek out LDN if they are not seeing discussions about what it can do for them. I have had to do a lot of digging myself to find LDN information not pertaining to MS.

  29. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in April of 1988.

    I was very messed up for two years after the initial attack. I couldn’t walk straight, and was actually blind for a few weeks. I never thought I would recover and become independent again. I was very depressed, and briefly considered suicide.

    I gradually pulled out of the attack with the help of IV Solumedrol and oral Prednisone, which is all the doctors had to offer back then. CRAB meds were unheard of.

    I made a full recovery and was symptom-free until around 1994. It was as if I never had MS. I wasn’t under the care of a neurologist, which, in hindsight, was a mistake. 1994 is when I started seeing him again on a regular basis.

    I was originally diagnosed with Relapsing/Remitting type MS, but the neurologist upgraded it to the next level, which I think is called Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.

    1996 was a very rough winter here in New York. There was a major blizzard, followed by snowfall after snowfall. I work as a maintenance supervisor for a real estate company and part of my job is to see that the snow is removed from their properties. It was a very stressful winter for me both mentally and physically. My MS returned with a vengeance, and my neurologist put me on Avonex, which I took for over three years.

    I eventually developed antibodies against interferon meds so my neurologist put me on Copaxone for over three years. He also had me on six treatments of Novantrone. I had many, many IV Solumedrol/Prednisone taper-offs in between all of this. Nothing was holding the MS off. Nothing. He then wanted to put me on Betaseron and I asked him why, as I thought I was immune towards interferons. He said, “Well, we have to try something”. He also thought about putting me on Tysabri, right before it started killing people and was pulled from the market. It was then I realized he was only experimenting on me and really didn’t have definite answers.

    I am 6’7″ and weigh 240 lbs, but I broke down and cried in his office.

    Fortunately, his nurse saw me and suggested I look into LDN, even though the neurologist was against it. She is my special angel.

    I have been on LDN since March of 2005 and shudder to think where I’d be without it. Among other things, it has helped my blurry vision, improved my balance, increased my bladder control, and given me a general sense of well-being. If that weren’t enough–and perhaps best of all–it has completely halted the progression of my disease.

    Yes, I am a BIG advocate of LDN, and wish I could sue someone’s ass off for the years I used the dangerous, expensive, ineffective CRAB/Novantrone drugs. They only made me worse.

    LDN has been a miracle for me!

  30. I must aggree with Susan on Dec. 21 ’08. I have Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, both autoimmune IBDs. LDN is a Godsend for IBD. Please include some of the other conditions that LDN can help.

    I am an American of Ashkenazi descent with an uncle who passed after a long bout with autoimmune disease and his son who has ALS and UC.

  32. I had optic neuritis in 1982, then further attacks but told by doctors it was ‘just another virus’ till finally diagnosed in 1990, confirmed by MRI scan 1991. Secondary Progressive since 1997. Still struggling on, can’t drive any more, wheelchair bound outdoors, on crutches indoors. Spent Christmas/New Year 12 days in hospital because I had another downturn which meant I just couldn’t walk at all. Now back on crutches and om February 2nd I will actually get to see a neurologist as a follow-up. So now a US friend has forwarded me the info on the goodleldn site I’ll do my best to get him to prescribe it. Wish me luck!!!!

  34. Hi I just wanted to let you know that my dr. asked me if I would like to try LDN. He suggested it and said that it might work for me. I am waiting for the pharmacy to fill the perscription right now. I am very excited about this. I am in a wheelchair or using a walker at all times and my bladder is shot as far as I am concerned. I am really very excited about it helping bladder issues. I have a son getting married 2 weeks from today and was wondering what I was going to do. I can’t go without drinking anything all day I get dehydrated too fast and then I have huge severe spasams. I will let you all know if symptoms start to improve.
    Thanks again.

  35. Interesting. I have RRMS for 7 years now, dx in 2007.
    I have been taking 3mg LDN now for over 1 year and dabbled with 4.5mg but found it too harsh for me and have now decided to remain with 3mg. First 3months were fantastic with encouraging results with a great feeling of euphoria but getting very sceptical now with LDN as the good results have dwindled away plus I have had two relapses or exacerbations within a year, nothing major but my walking has suffered as a result. Have now been offered DMD’s – blimey what do I do ? a very puzzled Simon. London U.K.

  36. Dear Joseph,
    I have been following your blog, Youtube videos and other postings. I am highly facinated by your work. MS cancer as well as a myriad of other illness affect my family life and world and thanks to you LDN has become a part of our dialogue.

    Sincerely,
    Nicole NY

  37. 3mg LDN is the Perfect Dose for me. I had my MS dx on 11/2006. First onset of MS was in 2003. I have been taking LDN for 5 months. 4 mg was too much. It made my leg pain and stiffness worse. 3 mg is just right for me.

    I feel a lot better and thought my MS was going into remission for the first time since 2006. I went off LDN for 2 days and my leg pain started again. Stay on LDN and do not stop taking it. I had trouble with my perscription and could not obtain the medication for 2 days. It made a huge difference in my symptoms to go without the LDN.

    Just a note to say thanks for your help in spreading the word about LDN and the benefits to autoimmune system disorders.

    God Bless!

  38. Hi there;
    Are there any web sites/forums that get into the use of LDN
    as preventive medicine?
    My initial purchase was through International AntiAging Systems and came in 10mg capsules. Needless to say almost impossible to get uniform dosages.
    Now they sell at 4.5 mg.

    Anyway, I have taken LDN for 5 nights now and I like the increased energy the next day although I am having some sleep problems. So I need to somehow work on getting standard doses.

    I would appreciate comments and thanks for your work.

  41. Joe,

    Thanks for all of your work on LDN. My doctor gave me your website to review before taking LDN. I am 52 yrs. old and have been ill my entire life with allergies, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, severe body pain, digestive problems, malabsorption, cognitive problems, memory problems and gluten issues ect. Doctors wanted to test me for MS but I told them I could not handle one more disease. The last 32 yrs. have been complete hell to the point of disability and continual thoughts of suicide.

    I have refused to take any drugs other than insulin because I did not want to mask the symptoms. Thats why my doctor gave me your web site to review because he knew I did not want to take any drugs, I wanted to know the cause of my health issues.

    Two weeks ago I read googleldn and went straight to the compound pharmacy to fill the script for 1.5 mg LDN. The very first night I had vivid dreams and a sence of calmness/wellbeing began. Really I feel strange I’ve never felt well.

    As I write this I have never felt better in my life. Thinking better, minimal body pain, don’t feel like I could fall apart at any minute, feel like living life, walk better. Actually not thinking about health every second of the day.

    Today I increased my dosage to 3 mg and really sence that my health problems are coming to an end. I have not found much info about LDN and diabetes. I told my doctors over thirty years ago that once I found the answers you will not be able to stop me from telling the world. We’ll see!

    I am grateful to you for the info and like you I will find ways to benifit others, this journey has a purpose.

    After being told I would be crippled for life in my 20’s and had terminal cancer at 43 which were resolved by using other alternative methods. I can hardly contain my excitement about healing the remaining issues.

    I would really like to help others that have diabetes and gluten issues because they cause so many neurological problems. If you have any other info in these areas please let me know.

    Keep up the great work and I will keep you informed.

    Kevin

  42. Hiya Joseph
    Been thinking about you recently and just wondered how you were doing? I met you at the LDN Conference in Glasgow where you very kindly signed for me the copy of your book that I had with me.
    Pass It On!

  43. i’m new to computer technology,but thought i would try communicating this way.thank u for sharing your journey with the rest of us. i am 54 years living with ms since 1986. rrms until 1999,and spms since about 2005. I started usng ldn at 3mg in nov 2009,after a bad fall dislocating my shoulder and fracturing the humerous bone in 3 places.Having 3 bouts of surgery in one year leaving my body totally exhausted i’m wondering when i can expect naltrexone to work. i think i am a little stronger, i expect i’ll have to wait 6 months to know if it’s doing anything. Does anyone have a similar experience and have any thoughts about what i can expect? i appreciate your sharing with me,i wish everyone well and all the best in this year 2010. thankyou. Brenda

  45. Joe, I came across your “LDN in seven minutes” vlog on You Tube during my own research on it and it’s been one of the most inspirational and influential as I start my own LDN treatment. I am so happy that you are living symptom free! I have RA and fibromyalgia and your personal account has motivated me. When I think about your story, especially your personal approach and sense of humor, I am encouraged to keep going. Ayahuasca can wait!

  46. Joe, I am glad to have this opportunity of thanking you for all you did for us in the UK to get the political/pressure group together, known as LDNNow, your brainchild! We have continued to grow from strength to strength and I can honestly say that the motivation you gave people from attending and having the honour of watching your presentation at the first European LDN Conference in Glasgow in 2009 will NEVER be forgotten. Just from your speech alone made everyone want to get off their bums and DO something to make a difference – not many have that skill to add that something extra special like you. The “Saving Lives One Person At A Time” is well worth watching. You grabbed everyones attention where there was much laughter and tears of joy with your road to discovery of good health. Long may it continue!

  47. I saw in one of your videos that you want to get LDN re-patented so that a big pharmaceutical company can make money on it and will agree to fund the trials. I think it would be better if LDN users funded our own trials. Since it’s so cheap at $10 a month, and we can save money getting off all the other expensive drugs, if everyone who could afford it pitched in an extra $5 or $10 per month into funding a drug trial, we could run our own study, and then keep the monthly cost of LDN low once it is approved. If a big pharma drug company takes it on, the cost will skyrocket. Whether the FDA would approve it is another question, because all the big pharma companies that stand to lose a lot of money when people find out that there is a safer and cheaper alternative, will try to block approval…. Oh, heck, maybe just better to educate people and doctors and get the word out and just keep using it off-label, to heck with the FDA.
    Thanks for all the great info!

  48. I totally agree. Maybe we should keep it on a grass roots basis. The pharmaceutical company would raise the price. The word is getting around. Myself I told my Dr. about it and last I heard he had 15 people on it. Let’s keep usingi it off label and spreading the word.

  50. I am planning to start LDN for fibromyalgia kind of pains. I am writing from India and am 40, male. My question is once I start on LDN, can i go off it whenever I feel like or would that have bad side effects if I stopped it ?

    • Though I am very happy for the gentltmans “full recovery” it simply is not a broad blanket thing, I have been on LDN for 5 years and have progressively gotten worse. LDN is a magic pill don’t get me wrong, the nights I forget to take it, really shows the next day. However unfortunately it is not a cure for MS, what it does is it tricks the body into producing more Endorhins, so you feel happier and are more mobile, that’s what it does.

      • No Drug or Protocol will work for everyone. I am assuming that you have experimented with the dosage. From everything I have read, some people require a little more, even up to 10mg and others do better on lower doses around 1.5mg. I just recently started LDN at a dose of 2mg. Next month I will most likely go to 2.5mg. I certainly hope it works because nothing much else has. I don’t have MS, but I do have a number of autoimmune issues. As for what LDN does, it may not actually produce more Endorphins for some people. Rather it seems reset the process nightly since some people are producing too much and others too little. Both too much and too little can cause lots of problems.

  54. 4.5 mg of LDN is no longer the highest recommended dose. I was on 4.5 for 2 years and I was still having chronic Shingles. On advice from Dr. Tom Gilhooly of Scotland, I raised my dosage by .50 every 2 weeks until I “hit the wall” where I was blocking endorphins for too long. Then I went back down until I woke up feeling great, which, for me, was at 5.0 mg. I know people who take up to 9.0 mg for their particular constellation of diseases.

  55. Why no posts since last year?
    I am interested in a update in your condition at the present time and any other current info.
    My son has MS and is having a hard time getting a doctor to prescribe LDN.

    • I’m doing great. I no longer need L-Lysine to help with shingles, no longer having them, nor the onset of shingle pain. I have no symptoms of any of my conditions for the most part – still have to watch the thyroid issues, but EVERYTHING is so much better that I count myself healed. I have also used, besides LDN, Inner Spirit Therapy — I believe the two things worked together to heal me completely: http://www.innerspirit-therapy.com/

      One can get Naltrexone online to make a solution with distilled water at home. Contact me for more info at the site above.

      🙂
