Recently, there have been a number of scientific papers showing that low-dose naltrexone may help treat some chronic conditions, such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, long COVID, anxiety, and in poor sleep quality and depressed mood.
Premature ovarian failure is diagnosed in about 10% of women attending infertility clinics, most often affecting women aged 25-40. Other causes of infertility include pelvic adhesions, cancer and their aggressive treatment; as well as metabolic diseases, including obesity and its complications; and the whole spectrum of autoimmune diseases and genetic defects. A large role in infertility, which will most likely be diagnosed in children when they reach adulthood, will be played by frequent holding of tablets with Wi-Fi on on their laps.
Findings suggest that LDN may be a promising treatment for infertility. It improves ovarian reserve in women with varying degrees of hypothalamic ovarian failure. Studies published have also shown that low doses of naltrexone may be beneficial in the treatment of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), exercise- or stress-related amenorrhea, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis.
