"It has been recognized that in many diseases, including Lyme, the body may be lacking endorphins. LDN therapy has been shown to boost the immune system by increasing these endorphins. This therapeutic effect is thought to be achieved by increasing the body’s production of beta-endorphin and metenkephalin.4 Both are important regulators of the immune system. These endorphins can increase the circulating quantities of natural killer cells and lymphocyte-activated CD-8 cells, both of which are important immunity. They also help regulate the t-helper 1 (TH1) and t-helper 2 (TH2) balance.5 TH1 is responsible for helping the body fight chronic diseases while TH2 is responsible for autoimmune and allergy-like responses. LDN helps to promote th1 while suppressing TH2.5 It is this dynamic which may help to improve Lyme patient’s immune function. It may be especially beneficial in those patients with Lyme disease and an autoimmune disease. In addition to endorphin production being helpful for immunity, it also serves as a natural pain killer."
