Naltrexone To Get Rid Of Alcoholism And Treat Auto Immune Diseases

Crohn's disease
Naltrexone belongs to a class of drugs called opioid receptors or anti craving medicines to get rid of alcoholism and other drug addictions. While a proven opioid receptor, low dose naltrexone is also known to treat and prevent a host of other serious diseases and conditions of the body such as multiple sclerosis disease, crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, HIV/AIDS and cancer. 

Popularly known as LDN therapy, naltrexone works wonders to not only help with alcoholism but also treat other serious and debilitating conditions of the body. While originally, naltrexone was mainly used as an anti craving drug to treat alcoholism and addictions, today low doses of this opioid receptor is used to treat a variety of conditions of the body.

For people with addiction on alcohol and other narcotic drugs and opioid substances, naltrexone helps to reduce the cravings for alcohol and drugs which alcohol and other drug dependent people normally feel when they are deprived of alcohol or drugs. You must be wondering, how does naltrexone works to stop cravings for alcohol and drugs in addicts.

Well, while the exact functioning of this iopioid antagonist is still not clear, it has been proven, that this drug treatment simply blocks the normal reaction of the part of the brain that produces the feeling of pleasure when opioids are taken, thus removing the craving a person feels for the narcotic substance when deprived of the same.

When there is no pleasure response, the person automatically stops craving for the narcotic substance and stops taking alcohol or opioids for pleasure. Not only that, naltrexone treatment for alcohol also help in detoxifying the body of the damaging effects of alcohol on the mind and body of the addict. While naltrexone is prescribed in high doses in pill for 12 weeks to help alcoholics get over their alcohol dependence, low dose naltrexone is generally prescribed to patients of auto immune disorders such as MS disease, crohn’s disease, AIDS, cancer and arthritris.

Since, these diseases generally develop as a result of immunodeficiency or an over active immune system, low dose naltrexone taken at bed time daily can increase the blood endorphins levels and thus help in MS disease treatment, crohn’s disease, HIV/AIDS, cancer and arthritis. Apart from this, LDN therapy has been shown to increase the body's production of met-enkephalin and beta endorphins, and can also double or even triple the activity of natural killer cells and thus help treat many types of cancers and other immune system diseases.

In such a scenario, a regular dose of 5mg Naltrexone should be taken before bedtime,  ideally between 9pm and 3am for maximum efficiency.
