I would like to get a copy of the study closed in 2010, if it's ok with you, Endeavor08. thanks in advance.
I have used LDN since 2007. LDN is not a cure, but it may bring you in remission. LDN is a very mild medicine, and it increases parts of the immune system.
I used to have severe inflammations prior to LDN, and I got that kind of pain once or twice a month. I got much better the day after my first LDN pill. That was amazing, I used to have pain every day, my tummy was distended (I looked and felt like I was pregnant) and the nauseau and discomfort was too much to carry every afternoon and night. All this was gone after one pill. I needed some weeks to get rid of the diarrhea, from 5 - 6 bathrooms visits to 1- 2 visits every morning. Now, 3 years after, I still have just have none or maximum 1- 2 bathroom visits every day.
If you need to know how other have experienced LDN, please go to
you'll find a few people with Crohns or ulceratice colitis and even IBS that is so much better after LDN.
I don't know how many Crohnies on a world basis that is using LDN, but I guess it's not just a little group.
If you go to yahoo.com and register, you will find a lot of LDN groups, one of them is LDN and IBD (Inflammated Bowel Disease), there you will meet people willing to guide you.
The Lowdosenaltrexone group holds a list of prescribing doctors in the States and in UK. You need to write to one of the advocates there and ask for a doctors list. They will not provide the list at the forum, but email you names from your area.
I have read that app. 100 000 people is using LDN for many types of autoimmune disease, diabetes and asthma. It's worth a try, you could always stop using it if you find it doesn't help or fit you.
Anyway, LDN need time to adjust, as a lot of other medicines. And you can use it in combination with other medicines except narcotic pain pills as tramadol and other. Just don't stop using your maintanance medicine. LDN alone may not cover you 100 %. It's still early days due to scientificial researches on LDN. Personally I would prefer using LDN with a mild maintanance drug.
