Patient Testimonial of Lodonal and HIV

In December 2004, I learned about a treatment involving low doses of Naltrexone (LDN) for autoimmune diseases. I learned about LDN on the lowdosenaltrexone.org website. I made an appt. with my general practitioner doctor and asked him if he would prescribe the LDN, and he did. I began taking 4.5mg capsules at bedtime, which is generally between 9:00 and 10:00 pm each night. Within 2 months of starting on LDN, my viral load went down to below 5000, and my T-cells increased by 50%. I have been taking the LDN for one year now. My last doctor appointment related to the Denver study was on December 6th 2005. I was informed by the HAART study doctor that I was the only participant in the study NATIONWIDE to do so well and I did not have to go back on HAART. The only thing I did that was different to others in the study was start taking LDN twelve months before the doctor's appointment so I am justified in believing it is the LDN that made the difference. If you look at it ... my numbers (viral load) were going back up before I started LDN. After starting LDN they went down. The doctor in Denver was sceptical of the LDN but now hesitantly admits that it may have something to do with the fact that I'm doing as well as I am.The downside of taking HAART medications was they made me feel awful. I have not experienced any side effects since starting LDN and I feel GREAT. Since starting on LDN twelve months ago I have not taken any other medications or nutritional supplements and I have not made changes to my diet or exercise regime - which I'd say is fairly average
