In layperson’s terms... the body is ‘tricked’ into thinking it’s deficient in endorphins and as result, dramatically boosts its own natural production of endorphins as well as its capacity to employ more endorphins. Endorphins are key regulators of immune system health through intricate links with all immune. system functions and responses – the full degree of which scientists still struggle to understand.
The increase in endorphin production effected by LDN orchestrates other beneficial immune system responses that appear to collectively help moderate immune system functions, regardless of whether functions and responses have been over-active or under-active; thereby orchestrating up-regulation or down- regulation of adverse fluctuations in immune system functions and responses that manifest as disease symptoms and progression. In other words, LDN works toward normalizing immune system function.
