Low dose naltrexone (LDN), one of the treatments I’ve showcased several times on HonestMedicine (here, here, here and here), has been in the online media quite a bit lately. It even has an online radio show devoted entirely to it! So, the word is getting out to more and more patients with autoimmune diseases (like MS, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease) that this low-cost, extremely safe, FDA-approved (at much higher doses), off-label medication is a very effective treatment, and that -- in many cases -- it has proved to be more effective than the medications doctors most often prescribe.
NOTE: LDN is one of the lifesaving, but so-called “anecdotal,” treatments I will be featuring in my upcoming book, Against All Medical Advice: Lifesaving Treatments that Work when the “Standard of Care” Fails You.
One program, Mary Boyle Bradley’s Internet radio show on Blog Talk Radio, is devoted entirely to low dose naltrexone. On her show, Mary, whose husband’s MS was helped immeasurably by LDN, interviews medical experts and patient advocates alike. In a future posting, I will tell more about this show. In the meantime, you may listen to it live on Tuesdays at Noon, and past episodes are available online.
LDN on Wellness Talk Radio with Kris Costello
Kris Costello will interview LDN advocate SammyJo Wilkinson and Elaine Moore, co-authors of The Promise of Low Dose Naltrexone, on Wellness Talk Radio on Wednesday, July 22nd, and Saturday, July 25th.
You won't want to miss this show. The Promise of Low Dose Naltrexone is an important book: It is the first to gather in one place the very impressive history of this inexpensive, off-label drug; how it works and for which conditions; and information about all of the LDN trials (to date) that are being and have been conducted. It is the perfect book for patients, who have read about LDN online, and have spoken to other patients, to show to their doctors. The authors hope that the information they provide here will convince conventional doctors to prescribe LDN for their patients who want to try it.
SammyJo’s personal experience as an MS patient who was “wheelchair bound” until she found LDN, is particularly moving. She will share it with Kris in this program.
Kris, who has interviewed lots of pioneers in the fields of holistic health and integrative medicine, says that her goal is “to connect people with health and wellness information and inspire them to better health.” Among her past guests: Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Mark Hyman and T. Colin Campbell.
You may listen to Kris on Wellness Talk Radio online several times throughout the week:
• Every Wednesday at 2pm and 10pm; and every Saturday at 4pm Pacific Daylight Time at www.newspress.com. (When you get to the site, click on AM1290.)
• Every Saturday at www.AM1440.com at 5pm Pacific Daylight Time.
I am proud and excited to announce that on Saturday, July 12th, Kris will name HonestMedicine.com as its “website of the week.”
In the near future, all of Kris’s shows will be archived at www.WellnessTalkRadio.com. I hope you will give them a listen.
