LDN Update

Well, well, well, what a week it has been. The petitions are in, the UK one was delivered by Dr.Chris to 10 Downing Street on Tuesday the 1st of December. It had 13026 signatures in the end and hopefully will trigger some government action. The Scottish petition had finished around the same time, but Scotland has a different system. The petitioner, Bob Thomson from LDNNow Scotland, had been invited to give a 3 minute presentation on LDN. Then he and two fellow campaigners were questioned about LDN, its effectiveness and availability. The petition and petitioners were very well received by the petitions committee and the hope is high, that the clever questions that were being asked will bring some fruitful furtherance of the LDN cause.

LDN (low dose naltrexone) is such a big light in the miserable life of many forgotten and shoved aside patients with autoimmune diseases. Something has to happen

  • to make people more aware of this
  • to it being offered as a first and safe line of treatment

  • to make it easy for (sometimes weak and feeble) patients to get hold of this cheap medication, that could change their life, their outlook, their social surrounds.

Find out about the outcome of these petitions on, read the articles, watch the videos and most of all, keep helping with spreading the word about LDN.

Thank you very much

Yours sincerely
