Does Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Help with Pancreatic Cancer and What is Considered a Biologic?
How well can LDN help slow down pancreatic cancer growth? Now we know some pancreatic cysts will become cancer in 10 to 20 years. Can LDN help slow down this process? There's certainly a lot of evidence on pancreatic cancer with LDN. Dr. Bergson, I think he is who I often refer patients to, I think he's in the States, isn't he? Yeah. He works a lot with LDN with alpha lipoic acid so there will be plenty of research on that and but certainly there is quite a lot of evidence to show that the progression of pancreatic cancer in some patients can be slowed down by the use of LDN. And don't forget to take a look at what's actually going on in the biome whether or not someone has spirochete and that's usually an oral um bacterial dysbiosis. You've got to be careful with that and you cannot avoid addressing dietary issues.
Would you suggest anything like mebendazole or doxycycline for that? An alternate dose? Really low-dose use of Doxycycline has been studied with pancreatic cancer, and anywhere from 10 to 20 milligrams has been used. You know, doxycycline is just rough on the gut. It's just not easy to take. A lot of people can't do it but it has been used and it's been used successfully. You know if you have the gift of knowing that there's a cyst and you have the gift of time to make an impact on that you know pancreatic cancer is on the rise at least in my neck of the woods. I'm seeing 40, 45 year old women being diagnosed and passing away way too young. If you have the gift of knowing what it is and the opportunity actually to take action, why wouldn't you?
This one was asked of me. What do you consider a biologic? So a biologic is a classification of medications that work on very specific pathways. Some of the biologics that are now out there are Humira and Ozempic. Help me out Sam. Oh golly yeah any of those injectable autoimmune drugs are going to be what we're talking about when we say biologic. Usually, they end in mab on the end. Then the globulin sort of therapy. Yes. Yes. Yeah, and they're the generic names are really hard to pronounce because there are a whole lot of consonants and they use X and M and A and B and they're just mouthfuls of words. But they're usually injectable. They're usually used once a week. So Copaxone was a biologic. It was one of the first MS drugs and it was used twice a week, once a week. There have been several others and they're usually for autoimmune-type issues like psoriasis is considered an autoimmune disease. Multiple sclerosis. Even Crohn's and ulcerative colitis and but they're starting to use some of the like semi-glottidis for diabetes because perhaps there is an autoimmune issue associated with diabetes. It's a very, very good possibility.
