The Case for Low Dose Naltrexone

It’s said that there are “over 60 hormones, 10 main neurotransmitters, over 20 endorphins and thousands of other chemicals” in our bodies, which, if they are “normal and working well,” help us to live healthy, happy and effective lives, free from addictions, sicknesses, diseases and so on. And that what Low Dose Naltrexone does is help us live like that, not by, in itself, helping us to live like that, but by helping our bodies to help us live lives like that. In other words case seems so strong

So, to us, the questions are raised, “Why shouldn’t we all be on Low Dose Naltrexone? Why aren’t we all on it.”

Is it too expensive? No, it’s not, it’s cheap to produce.

Is it onerous to be on? No, it simply involves taking simple medication, like any other simple medication, once a day.

Are there any other downsides? There don’t seem to be.

The answer seems to lie in how difficult it is to find a doctor, at least in Sydney, Australia, who knows enough about it to prescribe it for patients.

As we’ve mentioned, we sent out 16 emails to Sydney Neurologists, asking them whether “advising on and perhaps prescribing Low Dose Naltrexone” was within their “areas of expertise,” and if not, whether there was anyone else they “could recommend,” – and we haven’t got even one positive reply! (We intend to send out more as time allows.)

One doctor replied, and we quote, “LDN is said to be good for everything, (if you read the web,) and has been used for a few things such as MS. However, I’m not aware of any clear benefit to an otherwise fit and well person.”

Of course it’s not going to be of any clear benefit to an otherwise fit and well person – obviously all their body’s mechanisms, (for want of a better word,) are working well. But that’s not the point. The point is, why not take it to keep being fit and well? Or does one just start taking it when one has stopped being fit and well?

David Gluck, claims to have taken it every day for at least 15 years, and presumably he wouldn’t have kept taking it if he hadn’t felt it was doing him some good. But there seems to be no way for it to be determined whether he would have been fit and well anyway. But if you keep being fit and well, who cares?
