Episode - Should those with Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s take LDN?


Should those with Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s consider taking LDN?

Naltrexone is an FDA-approved medication that was first approved to help heroin and opium addicts by blocking opioid receptors.

Later, researchers found that lower doses of naltrexone could modulate the immune system and benefit many people with different types of autoimmune and other chronic conditions.

With its immune system modulation properties, low-dose naltrexone (LDN) has the potential to benefit those with Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s; however, it doesn’t come without risks.

Today, I’m sharing the key considerations you need to take into account when considering whether LDN might be right for you.


During this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Benefits of LDN, especially in comparison to other medications
  • Specific aspects of LDN to be aware of if you have Graves’ disease or Hashimoto’s
  • Risks associated with LDN
  • Recognizing the need to address the underlying causes of your condition
  • My perspective on whether people with Graves’ disease or Hashimoto’s should consider taking LDN
  • The importance of making an informed decision about taking LDN


As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
