Low-Dose Naltrexone and Dietary Changes for the Treatment of Autoimmune Diseases

Story at-a-glance -

  • Naltrexone is an opiate antagonist, originally developed in the early 1960s for the treatment of opioid addiction. When taken at very low doses (LDN), it triggers endorphin production, which can boost your immune function
  • Gluteomorphins (from gluten) and caseomorphins (from casein) act as exogenous opioids that suppress immune function. Hence an autoimmune diet needs to be free of gluten and dairy
  • LDN is most effective when combined with an autoimmune diet, free of gluten and dairy, rich in fresh and fermented vegetables, with low to modest amounts of high-quality protein
