Naturopathic, Complimentary and Alternative Treatments

Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

LDN], LDN has been seen to benefit many different autoimmune diseases. Although Dr. Weyrich is not aware of any reports of treating Polyarteritis Nodosa using LDN, Dr. Weyrich speculates that Polyarteritis Nodosa may also respond to LDN. Dr. Weyrich has been trained in the use of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). However, Dr. Weyrich has not treated any cases of Polyarteritis Nodosa with LDN.

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