Very interesting. I’ve heard for years about how LDN is essentially useful for every kind of chronic illness, but because I didn’t understand the mechanism of action and because it claimed to be useful for everything, I never thought of it for any one condition and therefore almost never prescribed it. This book explains both the mechanisms we know and the mechanisms speculated, and describes how they can be useful for individual illnesses including various kinds of autoimmunity, depression, and cancer. I’m far more inclined to prescribe and endorse it now, especially because its benefits come from the rebound action of the body rather than the primary action of the drug–meaning it actually helps the body to heal itself (pretty much the same mechanism of action of homeopathy, hydrotherapy, and most other naturopathic therapies.) This is also the reason that there are very few side effects to speak of — the side effects are the whole reason it’s prescribed!
