LOW-DOSE NALTREXONE (LDN)
Naltrexone is not a new drug. It was FDA-approved in 1984 to treat opioid and alcohol addiction but has been well studied since the 1960s. To treat addiction a dose of 50mg - 300mg is typically used, but a much smaller dose of 0.5mg - 9mg daily was found to help modulate the immune system and may help provide relief to those suffering from chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, inflammation, and mental health challenges.

LDN is most prescribed as a tablet or capsule that can easily be taken by mouth. Other forms include topical creams, sublingual drops or tablets, and suppositories.
CUSTOMIZED, CLEAN FORMULATIONS.
We know each patient is unique and understand the complex nature of certain disease states. We understand the need to find a treatment that will not cause a reaction or worsen symptoms. We take pride in working with patients to meet their needs for specialized strengths or formulas.
Our LDN tablets have been formulated from the ground up to be as “clean” as possible. They are dye and stearate free and contain a minimal amount of well-tolerated filler.
Our utilization of alternative fillers and bases allows us to create individualized formulas with detail to patients’ food and drug allergies as well as any dietary restrictions.
