Naltrexone resides in a class of drugs called opioid antagonists. These drugs block the action of opiate drugs, such as hydrocodone, in the body. Historically, at high doses, these drugs have been used in the treatment of narcotic addiction. It has been discovered at low doses, Naltrexone (LDN), can actually reduce inflammation, thus reducing the autoimmune activity of the body and additionally can help boost the immune system. LDN has been used to counter alcohol abuse and food cravings associated with addictions. It has been shown to be very effective in helping patients lose weight. Healthcare providers have expanded its use in successfully treating patients with autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroid, Crohn’s and a host of others. Many alternative cancer practitioners include LDN as a part of their treatment regime. LDN attaches to opioid receptors, blocking endorphins from attaching. This causes the body to release additional endorphins. A surge of endorphins causes increased activity from stem cells and immune cells, making your immune system work more efficiently. LDN keeps the immune system from overworking, which is a problem associated with autoimmune diseases.
