I am not a good or consistent blogger, but I felt the need to bring this information to the attention of as many people as I could. I have been hearing about the beneficial affects of a prescription drug called Naltdrexone on immunity related diseases for some time now. Usually it is related to multiple sclerosis, but it is increasingly credited with helping people with any kind of immunity disease. As with many unpatentable treatments, it does not get much press or support by the medical community. A video has been made by the son of Herman Wouk, which is excellent in explaining how and why LDN works, and why everyone who has an autoimmune disease should look into it. I plan on trying to get some from my physician based on the success Mr. Wouk has experienced. His name is Joseph Wouk, and you can see his video at: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4440379733824898139. This could be a very important breakthrough for many of us who continue to develop autoimmune complications.

Here is a bit out of an ldn website. Remenber this is being trialled for Chrone's disease at Penn State University on 6 to 17 year olds.

Bihari et al found that a low oral dose of naltrexone, when taken at bedtime, led to a doubling or tripling of low levels of circulating beta-endorphin.7 Bihari has since treated some 100 people with autoimmune disorders. None of them has progressed further while the patient continued taking low dose naltrexone each night at bedtime. Since no side effects are apparently associated with its use, this medication might well be studied as a possible preventive for Type I diabetes in those youngsters with beta-cell autoantibodies.
Sorry its all me but here is a link to some research on the MS/Type1 link

People with Type 1 and their relatives have a much greater chance of getting other autoimmune diseases such as celiac and ms. Even if taking LDN has no effect on diabetes if it reduces the risk of developing these other diseases that has to be a positive. Dr Bernstein recommends its use to control carb craving and weight control and has found it effective in about 73% of cases.
Hi All

I am looking for some help, I need your comments and thumbs up for the following

The Proposal I put on the "Your Country Your Call" Site is sitting at no.4. The site is getting thousands of hits a day and 20 people have come from the site to the database.
So the word is spreading. We need to keep this in the top 10 to stay visible.
The Odds of winning are slim as the idea is to generate employment but it is bringing LDN to the attention of thousands of people. I need a hand to get as many people to go to this LINK and giving the thumbs up and commenting to keep it in the top 10. This site is being advertised on TV and radio so I think this is a great opportunity for all

Here ia a link to the theory and research done on ldn.

Trials at Penn state for Crohn's

Penn State are recruiting children 6 to 17 for study of the use of LDN in Crohn's Disease


The study is "The Efficacy of Low Dose Naltrexone Therapy in Children With Crohn's Disease"

The principal investigator is Prof Jill Smith Past president of The American Pancreas Association


There is research partly funded by JDRF in UK which shows a link between Crohn's and Type 1. See this announcement from Cambridge University


Here is the results of previous research done at Penn State in this area

Eighty-nine percent of patients exhibited a response to therapy and 67% achieved a remission (P < 0.001)

Hi Everybody

We have a fantastic opertunity to talk to the outside world, and people who never heard of LDN. Our Government is running a site here in Ireland with over 25,000 visitors in the last two weeks. Here is a short cut to the site HERE Please Regester and click on support and leave a comment.
After you regester click on most supported to find your way back to this link
Thanks a million

Hoping that the person that posted this is still in the group at Tudiabetes. I am searching and researching Type 1 and LDN. Seems like it came out into the world around 2009 and 2010. That is the years I see the connect between Type 1 and LDN. Have not heard of who is working with it now.

Please respond if you have heard or have used it or can lead me to connects.

Thank you.
