Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

[LDN_Cancer] reports that the late Dr. Bernard Bihari treated approximately 450 patients with some form of cancer, with a 60% success rate, almost all of who had failed to respond to standard treatments. In one case report, a man with throat cancer refused the extensive surgery, chemotherapy and radiation that was recommended, and took LDN (and participated in "unproven alternative treatments" in Mexico. Thirty months later "the primary tumor had decreased by one-third in size and the two neck masses had regressed by about 50%." [ORWJr: This case is confounded by the unspecified treatments in Mexico].

Dr. Weyrich has been trained in the use of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). However, Dr. Weyrich has not treated any cases of throat cancer with LDN.

Please see What is Low Dose Naltrexone? for more information.
