How to Dose Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) For AutoImmune and Cancer?
The next question is a follow-up question. The mistletoe and cancer and autoimmune patients. For cancer it looks like they are taking LDN four days on three nights off. Then it's asking about how an autoimmune a lot of time you take it every night and how do I decide which schedule to use? So this is interesting. It's really going to be provider-specific I would say. LDN's half-life is six hours so technically if you take it every day it could be considered pulse therapy. There are some providers who will just tell you to take it every day. With cancer there are protocols of four days on three days off but there are also protocols taking LDN every day and then ... four days on three days off. You're gonna see a couple of different things there. It kind of depends on the type of cancer that you're treating and who the provider is. Who has seen that Dr Khan does a lot of this type of treatment out of Toronto, right Michelle? Is that right? Yes he's not practicing currently. Okay, so he has done a lot of research and was a big prescriber in this area so it's really provider dependent and that's cancer dependent but those are the three kinds of things that I have seen.
For autoimmune normally it's everyday. Cancer I would say normally you start every day but then sometimes there's some alternative treatments.
