LDNIM knows the topic of the Zika Virus has been a big deal these past couple months. LDN being the life savior that it is can help fight Zika. But two questions first... What exactly is Zika, and how? According to Emily Allen at The Telegraph, "The Zika virus is a mosquito-borne infection which was first identified in Africa in 1947. It has spread significantly across the world since the first reported case in Brazil in 2015. For most people it is a very mild infection and isn't harmful. However, scientists believe it's behind an unprecedented rise in the number of children being born with unusually small heads - microcephaly - in Zika infected areas. The virus is transmitted to people primarily through an infected Aedes species mosquito, although it can also be passed from person-to-person via sexual contact with an infected man. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said there is strong scientific consensus that Zika can also cause Guillain-Barre, a rare neurological syndrome that causes temporary paralysis in adults."
There are a lot of companies out there trying to find a vaccine for Zika. Some are really close and in Phase III Trials of being FDA approved. We know this is a long process and there's usually a catch whether it's high cost or side effects. All to be determined. Fierce Pharma states, "Dengvaxia launch has faltered and another potential rival is already in Phase III testing in Brazil. It's unclear whether the market would be big enough for all three vaccines. The global effort to create a Zika vaccine reeled in another major player on Thursday, when Takeda signed on with the U.S. government as part of a collaboration potentially worth $312 million."
Since endorphin enkephalins have been shown to be active against Japanese encephalitis
in mice then LDN may have activity against Zika a closely related virus. If you have read any other blog post you already know the powers of Low Dose Naltrexone. The beauty of LDN is the simplicity. It helps balance your immune system to fight off most diseases. We believe LDN can help with Zika and we already know that LDN is safe, cost effective, and proven.
