When Using Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) How Do You Know When You've Reached Your Happy Dose?
How do you know when you reach your happy dose? This is also a question that comes up a lot on the Facebook page but also with a lot of practitioners they ask how do you know when to stop and know what is the best dose for someone. Well right now you probably have a list of symptoms you’re trying to control. They might be itching, don’t have energy, have stiffness or tightness, etc. When you are able to start checking those off your list then you have reached a spot where you feel good but if you increase the dose you feel worse, then you go back. There is your happy dose.
It is the spot where symptoms are resolving but more makes the symptoms come back. I will say just like with any other medication LDN does not resolve a hundred percent of your issues.
Even if you increase your dose you are probably not going to see 100% of your resolution. Even if you took Tylenol, 100% of your issues don’t resolve. It is similar to other medication and the reason is because we are a very complex body that has a lot of little things going on all the time. It is like rooms in your house, you might heat up one area but that doesn’t mean there is heat in another room. It means the heat hasn’t gotten there yet. Your happy dose is when you are able to resolve your issues but not create new ones or have the old ones come back.
