I think that some of my text fell out when I edited my previous post. I first mentioned what kind of pain I used to get app. twice a month, the pain from having partial obstructions, this kind of pain is unbearable and severe, and the partial obstructions used to show up when the inflammation got worse. On a daily basis I had the usual and for most of us familiar pain and discomfort.
LDN reduced all this daily pain after my first pill. The inflammation got reduced during the following weeks and month, and my obstructions stopped showing up. Haven't had any partial obstructions at all for more than two years now.
LDN is made from Naltrexone. This Naltrexone has been given to patient groups for 30 year in BIG doses (from 50.0 mg - 300.0 mg)
Low Dose Naltrexone is normally taken from 1.5 mg each night after 10.00 p.m.
I have learned that you shouldn't use LDN and NARCOTIC pain meds.
You are allowed to use all other pain meds. Just not narcotic pain meds.
No one can tell how many out there it doesn't help. We only know that it gives remission to 40 - 50 % and symptom relieves for more patients.
It's wise to try this medication with 5 - MP medicines, or try LDN as a stand alone med, and then add another med / and-or a diet like gluten free diet or the SCD (which also is strict gluten free), if you want.
I can't use other medications than LDN due to another diagnose, but I am allowed to use a low dose of prednisone for some weeks (starts at 40.0 mg and gradually down to zero) if I get signs of a flare starting.
I am one of them getting a lot of symptom relieves with Ldn, but I am not sure if I am ever getting a 100 % remission.
Endeavor, thanks a lot for sending me the papers, haven't seen them yet as they are sent to my work. /Bee
