Low dose naltrexone

Naltrexone is a drug used to treat alcohol and opioid dependence and at a low dose it has been found to modulate the immune system. It has shown great promise in treatment of autoimmune diseases, especially MS. It is dirt cheap ($20/month)and because it is given at a dose well below normal levels it has minimal to no side effects. If I had MS this would be my first treatment regime but you have to decide what you feel is best for your daughter. I agree with the people below regarding diet and supplements and homeopathy. Over the long haul they will probably be the things that correct the disease but they will take time to work. In the meantime LDN might be a good thing to stabilize the disease while you are working on the lifestyle changes.
