Will Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Cream Help Hashimotos and Thyroid Antibodies?
Is the cream rubbed on the thyroid effective for reducing inflammation? For example, Hashimoto's thyroid peroxidase antibodies? I don't know. I don't. It depends on the topical, right? So first of all, I would say the majority of the time when we're treating an autoimmune thyroid issue, that type of thyroiditis, it's usually an oral medication. If we are using a transdermal form of Low Dose Naltrexone, that is, again, should be in a base that will be delivered to the bloodstream. Again it's not usually rubbed directly on the thyroid gland to reduce the thyroid peroxidase antibody because the thyroid peroxidase antibody probably isn't going to be affected by just rubbing a cream on the thyroid gland. We really need to get at the root issue and that cellular issue. Dr. Zielsdorf has done a beautiful job in describing how she uses Lose Dose Naltrexone for a variety of thyroid conditions, including testing, including dietary issues, and she has spoken for the Trust many times on thyroid. Dr. Kent Holtorf has done that as well but correct me if I'm wrong, I've never heard them talk about rubbing a cream directly on the thyroid to affect anything. It's all been oral. I don't know why you would try rubbing cream on when there's a perfectly good oral. So overall, therapy that you can take, you know, thyroid cream, you have varied absorption. Orals are much better. So first, for any type of systemic issue, it's probably best to take it orally.
