Our Founder - Linda's Story

I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in August 2000 at the age of 44, but my MS can now be traced back to when I was 32 or younger.

I have relapsing/remitting MS and was having attacks every 6 months; it took months for a relapse to recede, only to have another one start. In October 2003 I was told I had secondary progressive MS and there was nothing anyone could do to help me.

Following my success with LDN, I founded the LDN Research Trust as a U.K. nonprofit registered charity in 2004. The LDN Research Trust is run purely by volunteers; we receive no funding and rely on donations. We liaise closely with prescribers, pharmacists, and patients, offering support and education.

Our website, www.ldnresearchtrust.org, features lists of clinical trials and studies involving LDN, conditions for which LDN is used, global LDN prescribers and pharmacists, prescriber/patient guides, and more. We have our own LDN Radio Show, which listeners can access on Mixcloud, Captivate FM, Google, Apple & Amazon Podcast, iTunes, and Spotify in addition to our Vimeo and YouTube channels.

We have made six documentaries, which have been huge successes. Additionally, we arrange LDN conferences both large and small, and host seminars in conjunction with pharmacies. In short, the LDN Research Trust strives to spread the word about LDN and to encourage and support ongoing research about the Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).
