Do you need to be dairy-free?

Dr. Mathewson -  Because this individual's heard that dairy can have an opiate effect. This true: there's casomorphin morphine in dairy. It has a very mild opiate receptor activity. No need to be dairy-free when using Low Dose Naltrexone. 

Dr. Rashidi - One thing I want to add: like always, just for any of these to really work, and I know Dr. Mathewson talked about a little bit with the patient with psoriasis, you’ve got to have a good gut, so we always recommend people taking a good probiotic with LDN, just because, gut health is the most important. I'm sure we all agree here, but it's just really important to get a good probiotic, and just make sure you're clean eating. A lot of time gluten does contribute to a lot of overall autoimmune issues, so if you haven't tested for gluten sensitivity - sometimes people never thought they're gluten sensitive, but they do testing - and I know both doctors here, they do a lot of testing on that, and I'm sure I've talked to them a lot of times, and they all see it all the time, which is not surprising sometimes.

Dr. Sato-Re - I'm just going to add that for food sensitivities, gluten and dairy are one and two, pretty much one and two.
