Can LDN cure addiction?
LDN or low dose Naltrexone is usually 4.5 mg dose of Naltrexone (or in some cases 3 mg dose) taken at bedtime because that is the best time to influence hormone production. Low dose naltrexone is used in treating autoimmune diseases or central nervous system disorders or even some forms of cancer. Since Naltrexone blocks opioid receptors, it also blocks the reception of the opioid hormones produced by adrenal glands. All cells of the immune system have receptors for these endorphins and enkephalins. Low Dose Naltrexone boosts body’s own natural defenses by elevating the strenght of our immune system. For treating addictions however, doses less than 50mg are ineffective.
