Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

[Dudley_hep_b] reports that hepatitis B is a condition that LDN helps. In one case, a 7 year old child was given 1 mg nightly of LDN, and "within one month, her liver enzymes had returned to normal range and her viral load had gone down from 59.2 Million to 170,000." http://www.buylowdosenaltrexone.com/

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

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