It was not me that posted about
a "cure" for EBV- I may have said it can help, and according to the myriad of testimonials on the web about
LDN and EBV, it does.
As far as LDN being a cure for Crohns, let me say this: I don't pretent to know what it's like to have Crohns, and I it certainly was not my intention to make a flippant comment. Just from my own health struggles over the past several years, I know what its like to be treated that way. If I came across ruddely, I want to apologize. I purposely worded the title to my post to draw attention to LDN. Your comment was appropriate in that light.
It's not difficult to find out about
LDN on the web. There are medline articles and studies coming out of U of Pennsylvania. A doctor there, Jill West, and a researcher by the name of Zagon are advocating for its use for Crohns specifically. Some other MDs, namely Dr Bihari, who is now deceased, and Dr Berkson out of New Mexico has had remarkable success with LDN. There is information on Youtube about
LDN conferences, where MDs from around the world gather to share their experiences.
I also want to make sure that anyone who is reading this understands that LDN is off patent - this is the very reason why public knowledge of it is not part of the mainstream, if I can put it that way. LDN costs $30.oo/mo. No pharmaceutical company will promote its use - you must have a compounding pharmacy prepare it. These things I have mentioned are easily found on the web. I am just giving a very short Readers Digest version of the LDN story. As everyone knows who is part of these forums, we have to take our health into our own hands, it is up to people who have slipped through the cracks of mainstream medicine to find their own solutions.
Again, my intention today, when I joined the forum, was to pubicize what LDN can to for Crohns and for other autoimmune diseases, so that people who are suffering from them can explore it for themselves. Your forum, and forums like these are wonderful things. Believe me, if it cost me a dollar to sign up and post, I wouldn't have done so. Please read for yourselves what LDN is all about
. It has helped me and many others.
