Welcome to the LDN Radio Show hosted by Linda Elsegood, sponsored by the LDN Research Trust. The show features expert discussions on Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and its applications in treating autoimmune diseases and cancer. Today's guest, Shelly from Florida, shares her experience with multiple sclerosis (MS) and her journey with LDN. Shelly, diagnosed with MS years ago, transitioned to secondary progressive MS. Despite trying various treatments, severe pain from bulging discs led her to discover LDN. Within six weeks of starting LDN, her debilitating pain vanished, drastically improving her quality of life.

Shelly recounts her initial MS symptoms, such as optic neuritis, which led to her diagnosis. She discusses the significant impact of her diet changes, eliminating gluten, dairy, and sugar, which alleviated many MS symptoms like drop foot, vertigo, and migraines. Shelly emphasizes the importance of clean eating and a disciplined supplement regimen, which includes vitamins, minerals, and natural substances. Her story highlights the potential of LDN and dietary management in improving MS symptoms and overall well-being. The show concludes with an invitation for listeners to reach out with questions, underscoring the support and information the LDN Research Trust provides.

In a recent episode of the LDN Radio Show hosted by Linda Elsegood of the LDN Research Trust, guest speaker Kara from the United States shared her personal journey using Low-Dose Naltrexone (LDN) to manage multiple sclerosis (MS). Kara recounted her initial MS symptoms during her university years, including recurrent UTIs and muscle spasms, and described a severe episode of trigeminal neuralgia that led to her diagnosis. She revealed that her MRI not only confirmed MS but also detected early-stage thyroid cancer, which was successfully treated.

As a lawyer and wife of a physician, Kara utilized her resources to educate herself on the benefits of LDN, ultimately choosing it over traditional disease-modifying therapies. Her experience with LDN has been transformative, significantly improving her balance, reducing fatigue, and eliminating UTIs. Kara also noted the vivid dreams as the only side effect and emphasized the drug's positive impact on her overall health and inflammatory markers.

Kara's testimony highlights the potential of LDN as an immune-modulating therapy with minimal side effects, advocating its use for others with MS. Her story underscores the importance of exploring LDN as a viable treatment option and maintaining an open mind towards alternative therapies for autoimmune conditions.
