Many of you may know me as the anti-medication. I have not gone on any meds in 24 years. I did take OTC meds when I first married Kristi, taking up to 8 Advil and 12 Tums per day, but she got me off of those pronto.
She taught me so much about medication and its side effects. That is what got me started looking into herbs to help with M.S. pains.
When my mother-in-law told me about LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone), I looked it up by the call letters and researched the wrong drug with the same call letters.
Then someone else in one of my groups on Facebook suggested it, and then a friend suggested it. After three suggestions, I decided I needed to seriously research it.
Come to find out that I was researching the wrong medication. I found videos of people with M.S. who were helped by LDN. In fact, it helps a lot of diseases, and it has no known negative side effects. The only side effect that I have experienced is very vivid dreams, so vivid that I’ve tried having dream-related conversations with Kristi while I was still alseep.
Yes, I have been taking it for a week and a half. I have seen little improvements until today. I usually have a lot of problems lifting my legs up when lying on my back. This morning I lifted my leg up about a foot AND HELD IT THERE. That was such a shock. I usually could lift my leg only a few inches then let it drop right away. Today, I actually held it up for a few seconds.
Also, my muscle spasms have been reduced, the tightness in muscles is reduced, and the pain in my back is gone. In fact, I don’t need to take turmeric anymore, which helped a lot with my back pain. Also I am finding it easier to push myself around in my wheelchair and stop quicker.
I’m definitely encouraged by the improvement that I’ve seen in such a short time, and I’m excited to see what happens in the future as I keep taking it.
If you know of someone who suffers from an autoimmune disease (and it can even help those who suffer from cancer), and would like more information on Low Dose Naltrexone, I suggest these resources:
