Most Doctors Don’t Know About Low Dose Naltrexone for Autoimmune Diseases

Most doctors don't know about LDN Low Dose Naltrexone for autoimmune disease

Do you know about Low Dose Naltrexone?

I hear from autoimmune disease patients all the time doing well on Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). Here’s the thing. Most conventional doctors are not aware of LDN and even those who are aware of it are not open to exploring it for their patients. If you’re struggling with an autoimmune disease like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and you haven’t heard about LDN, today is the day you’ll learn about a little-known but promising treatment.

“Dr. Holtorf has been a great supporter of Hypothyroid Mom since I launched in October 2012.

Absolutely yes I would gladly include this guest blog post about Hashimoto’s disease.

Dr. Holtorf ROCKS! You let him know that.” [Read more…]
