What You Should Know About Low Dose Naltrexone
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) isn't a new treatment option; in fact it has been around for decades. This drug has helped slow the progression -- and even stop painful symptoms -- of autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn's disease. In some cases it has helped ease symptoms of HIV/AIDS and some cancers. LDN is commonly known by its patients as a "miracle drug."

However, for reasons of profitability, or lack thereof, these treatments have not been universally accepted.

Some specialists and doctors know nothing about the drug, which leaves patients in the dark about effective treatment options.

Author and special guest, Julie Shopick, discusses Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and how it may benefit you.
