IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL MS PATIENTS

To my fellow MS sufferers:

By way of introduction, my name is Joseph Wouk. I'm the son of the novelist
Herman Wouk whose works you might be familiar with. I'm a graduate of
Columbia
College and Columbia Law school in NYC.

I have recently completed a book entitled Google LDN! which should become
available on Amazon.com sometime this month. In the meantime, it can be
purchased or read in it's entirety for free at its site. In addition, the
site
has lots of information on LDN as well as three videos explaining about it
ranging from seven minutes to an hour.

As posting links is not allowed on this forum, just Google the title of the
book or my name and you'll find it. The hundred page appendix should have
all
the information you might want concerning LDN and it's operation.

The blurb from the back of the book explains my story:

_________________________________________

Diagnosed with Progressive Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis, Joseph Wouk,
youngest son of novelist Herman Wouk refuses to accept the doctor's opinion
that
there is nothing more to be done for his medical condition. He plans to go
to
the Amazon to try to cure himself with a Shaman's ayahuasca ceremony.

The book begins as a journal entitled, PLACEBO – A Rationalist Seeks a
Miracle Cure. Wouk, a hardened western rationalist has no patience for
spooks
or spirits or any other new age wishful thinking. His plan is to try to
delude
himself with psychedelics into thinking he is cured - Thereby activating the
placebo effect to cure himself for real.

He covers all the bases: From Buddhism to Judaism. From quantum physics to
Gödel's incompleteness theorem. From alternative medicine to the Metaphysics
of
Quality.

Told with humor and honesty, Wouk pulls the reader through his thought
processes as he watches his mind dissolve from the subcortical dementia
caused
by his particular variety of MS.

Right before he is scheduled to leave for Peru, all his MS symptoms suddenly
disappear. The only drug he was taking was Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).

The second part of the book is entitled: LDN – Miracle Cure Found ! After
his symptoms disappear, Wouk finds out that LDN has been stopping the
progress
of Progressive MS for 20 years. It also has been helping cancer victims,
AIDS
patients, Parkinson's sufferers, and a host of other immune system related
diseases.

Naltrexone was FDA approved only to treat recovering addicts. The low dose
version works its magic by tripling the body's production of endorphins.
This
restores the immune system to full operation; hence the drug's ability to
help
so many diseases. It doesn't fight the diseases; the body fights them once
the
immune system is restored. Because it is now generic, no one will spend the
millions required for FDA approval.

Google LDN ! is Wouk's attempt at Dana Paramita, the Buddhist version of
Christian "good works".

The book includes a hundred page appendix with the most up to date
information about LDN and its effects on immune system related diseases.

You'll laugh and cry through the first part of the book and be inspired by
the second part.

A man who refuses to give up in the face of insurmountable odds ends up
completely healed despite the hopelessness that western medicine tells him
he
faces.
____________________________________


I addressed the first annual LDN conference on April 25 in Glasgow and that
video is available at the same site as the book.

This matter may well be the most important one to national health since the
discovery of penicillin. Writing that makes me feel like a self promoting
flake
pushing some variety of "snake oil." That's been one of the lesser problems
in
getting LDN recognized for what it has proven itself over and over to be
capable
of. It's hard to swallow that any drug could possibly control the following
list of diseases:

Cancers:

* Bladder Cancer
* Breast Cancer
* Carcinoid
* Colon & Rectal Cancer
* Glioblastoma
* Liver Cancer
* Lung Cancer (Non-Small Cell)
* Lymphocytic Leukemia (chronic)
* Lymphoma (Hodgkin's and Non-Hodgkin's)
* Malignant Melanoma
* Multiple Myeloma
* Neuroblastoma
* Ovarian Cancer
* Pancreatic Cancer
* Prostate Cancer (untreated)
* Renal Cell Carcinoma
* Throat Cancer
* Uterine Cancer

Other Diseases:

* ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease)
* Alzheimer's Disease
* Ankylosing Spondylitis
* Autism Spectrum Disorders
* Behcet's Disease
* Celiac Disease
* Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
* CREST syndrome
* Crohn's Disease
* Emphysema (COPD)
* Endometriosis
* Fibromyalgia
* HIV/AIDS
* Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
* Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
* Parkinson's Disease
* Pemphigoid
* Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS)
* Psoriasis
* Rheumatoid Arthritis
* Sarcoidosis
* Scleroderma
* Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS)
* Systemic Lupus (SLE)
* Transverse Myelitis
* Ulcerative Colitis
* Wegener's Granulomatosis


I'm no self promoter and LDN isn't snake oil. It is, simply put, the best
drug ever discovered for restoring the immune system to it's proper
function.
It does this not only for humans, but for animals as well. Dogs and cats
with
cancer are routinely stabilized with LDN and live long, normal lives.

Be sure to Google the study that was completed six months ago in Milan,
Italy where over the course of 6 months, only one of forty PRMS patients
showed
any progression of their disease while taking LDN.

The Yahoo group "lodosenaltrexone" has over 6,000 members who have been, or
are being helped by LDN. While cancer and MS are the two most common
illnesses
that LDN helps, over the past few years children with autism have shown such
amazing improvement that Hadassah Medical School is beginning a study about
it.
When I Googled "LDN autism" just now, it returned 11,100 hits.

It's method of functioning is pretty straight forward. Naltrexone, as an
opioid blocker, makes the body think it has a deficit of endorphins. This
causes the body to produce 2-3 times the normal amount of endorphins. The
endorphins then fortify and help restore the immune system. All this is
accomplished with essentially no bad side effects.

None of this is rocket science for medical professionals today. What's
somewhat different about LDN is that it doesn't treat the disease. Instead,
it
treats the body and then lets the body treat the disease. This is
reminiscent
of Homeopathy and may be another reason why LDN has failed to attract the
attention of the medical community despite all the evidence.

The central reason that LDN is still unknown is no reason at all. That is,
unless making money is considered a "reason". LDN became a generic drug
years
and years ago. On the one hand, this is good. LDN is cheap because anybody
can
produce and sell it. The problem is that its effects on the immune system
were
discovered after it had become generic. Our "for profit" system of medical
care
has lots to recommend it. However, in the case of a drug whose important use
is
discovered after it becomes generic, the system completely breaks down.

While I have no use for "Big Pharma" in general, I can hardly blame them for
not investing the 30 million dollars necessary to gain FDA approval if there
is
simply no way they can ever recoup their investment.

This is a terrible hole in our medical system that needs to be fixed. While
LDN may represent the most extreme example of the damage that can result
from
this "hole," it is the tip of the iceberg when one considers how many drugs
are
going generic on a daily basis. None of these drugs will ever be tested for
new
and important uses no matter how much evidence there is to justify it. The
current patent law insures that a drug's approved use becomes "frozen" as
soon
as it becomes generic.

While many different solutions to this problem have been proposed, I believe
that as long as our society continues to use the "for profit" system, the
only
real solution has to be found within that system. That's why I've proposed
that
the patent law be changed to allow for "re patenting" of prescription drugs
for
new and important uses.

If that law had been in place 20 years ago when Dr. Bernard Bihari
discovered the effects of low dose naltrexone on the immune system, millions
of
peoples lives would have been saved, trillions of dollars would not have
been
wasted, countless hours of suffering would have been prevented, and the
continent of Africa would not be facing decimation at the hands of AIDS. By
now, LDN would again have become a generic drug.

These are the issues that I would like to get across to the public and to
our legislators. My book and my story serve only to give me some patina of
authority which I otherwise completely lack.

A petition to 10 Downing Street has been launched urging the government to
do the testing of LDN so that it can become the drug of first instance for
all
immune system disorders. Google "petition LDN 10 Downing" to find it. Please
take a minute or two to sign it.

I believe the petition can serve as a rallying point to unify the efforts of
the thousands of people who have been saved by the drug and are trying to
get it
out to all those who need it.

Dr. Chris Steele has told us that he will personally deliver the petition to
10 Downing once it is ready.

The last sentence of the "Editor's Selection" on this site when I searched
for
LDN reads as follows:

The decision to take LDN is a matter for individual judgement, though people
are
advised to 'err on the side of caution' until the safety and effectiveness
is
fully established.

Since LDN has been used effectively for over 20 years to treat MS with no
adverse side effects reported whatsoever, I suggest also that people "err on
the
side of caution." They should begin using LDN immediately ! They have
nothing
to lose and everything to gain. My experience is not an "anecdotal" fluke.
The
numbers that have been gathered show that LDN is effective in halting MS
progression and preventing relapses in 80% of the people who take it.

To the Moderators of the MSS forum, I'd like to say that it behooves you at
this
point to stop ostracizing people who mention LDN here. I've been told
repeatedly that if I post this information on the forum that it will be
taken
down and I will be banned. One of the reasons given in the past for banning
people mentioning LDN was that they were giving medical advice without being
a
doctor.

Let me make myself perfectly clear, I'm not giving medical advice. I'm
informing my fellow MS sufferers of information they need to know. Period.

I acknowledge that section 4.1 gives the MSS the right to remove any post
for
any reason whatsoever. To wit:

"4.1 The MS Society has the right, but no obligation, to remove, edit, move
or
close any message or group of messages for any reason."

However, all who have read this post already before I submitted it know that
it
contains nothing in it that would justify its removal.

As a result of the Glasgow conference, the LDN people have become organized.
Many of them are watching to see what will happen with this message and my
membership once I post it. There are a number of reporters and government
officials who are watching as well. Numerous local MSS chapters have already
voiced their displeasure over the information blackout regarding LDN that
continues to occur on the UK's MSS Forum.

Let the MSS's reaction to this post put the critics on notice that things
have
changed.

All of us are looking forward to working closely with the MSS to see that
LDN is
given the trials it needs to become recognized as a proper treatment for MS
by
doctors throughout the UK and the world.

It now appears that Dr. Tom Dr Tom Gilhooly of Essential Health Clinic in
Rutherglen is working with the Chief Science Officer in Scotland and
believes
he is close to getting the funding.

Last week, John Donnelly met with the Minister for State of Ireland. I
received
this report on his meeting:

"Well that went great.

He asked me all the right questions.
is the drug FDA approved?
is it normal to use a drug for its side effects?
is there many people using it? 50,000 +

I got him interested enough to look at the Internet, so I said there is tons
of
information on it and you are a busy man and probably wont take half of it
in
and went to Joe's video on googleldn and he watched it all the way through.

He suggested I get onto our local police station who have an unusual high
rate
of cancer and give them some information. He is getting onto the
government's
drug advisers and finding out what the government's stand is on the drug and
will get back to me."


To all my fellow sufferers here online, I wish you all a recovery as
complete as
mine was. Progressive MS patients finally have an option to save themselves,
and this is truly a cause for great rejoicing. All you need to do to find
out
all the information you need is to do as the title of my book suggests,
Google
"LDN Naltrexone". Thousands and thousands of sites to choose from. Start at
the number one site in the Google listing if you haven't started at my
book's
site.

Warmest,

Joseph Wouk

great artical big artie!!!
more people should try LDN.
Anyone with an auto-immune condition should at least give it a try.
Its cheap, there are virtually no side effects, and best of all, it
works!

I'm no self promoter and LDN isn't snake oil. It is, simply put, the best
drug ever discovered for restoring the immune system to it's proper
function.
It does this not only for humans, but for animals as well. Dogs and cats
with
cancer are routinely stabilized with LDN and live long, normal lives.
Be sure to Google the study that was completed six months ago in Milan,
Italy where over the course of 6 months, only one of forty PRMS patients
showed
any progression of their disease while taking LDN.
The Yahoo group "lodosenaltrexone" has over 6,000 members who have been, or
are being helped by LDN. While cancer and MS are the two most common
illnesses
that LDN helps, over the past few years children with autism have shown such
amazing improvement that Hadassah Medical School is beginning a study about
it.
When I Googled "LDN autism" just now, it returned 11,100 hits.
It's method of functioning is pretty straight forward. Naltrexone, as an
opioid blocker, makes the body think it has a deficit of endorphins. This
causes the body to produce 2-3 times the normal amount of endorphins. The
endorphins then fortify and help restore the immune system. All this is
accomplished with essentially no bad side effects.
None of this is rocket science for medical professionals today. What's
somewhat different about LDN is that it doesn't treat the disease. Instead,
it
treats the body and then lets the body treat the disease. This is
reminiscent
of Homeopathy and may be another reason why LDN has failed to attract the
attention of the medical community despite all the evidence.
The central reason that LDN is still unknown is no reason at all. That is,
unless making money is considered a "reason". LDN became a generic drug
years
and years ago. On the one hand, this is good. LDN is cheap because anybody
can
produce and sell it. The problem is that its effects on the immune system
were
discovered after it had become generic. Our "for profit" system of medical
care
has lots to recommend it. However, in the case of a drug whose important use
is
discovered after it becomes generic, the system completely breaks down.
While I have no use for "Big Pharma" in general, I can hardly blame them for
not investing the 30 million dollars necessary to gain FDA approval if there
is
simply no way they can ever recoup their investment.
This is a terrible hole in our medical system that needs to be fixed. While
LDN may represent the most extreme example of the damage that can result
from
this "hole," it is the tip of the iceberg when one considers how many drugs
are
going generic on a daily basis. None of these drugs will ever be tested for
new
and important uses no matter how much evidence there is to justify it. The
current patent law insures that a drug's approved use becomes "frozen" as
soon
as it becomes generic.
While many different solutions to this problem have been proposed, I believe
that as long as our society continues to use the "for profit" system, the
only
real solution has to be found within that system. That's why I've proposed
that
the patent law be changed to allow for "re patenting" of prescription drugs
for
new and important uses.
If that law had been in place 20 years ago when Dr. Bernard Bihari
discovered the effects of low dose naltrexone on the immune system, millions
of
peoples lives would have been saved, trillions of dollars would not have
been
wasted, countless hours of suffering would have been prevented, and the
continent of Africa would not be facing decimation at the hands of AIDS. By
now, LDN would again have become a generic drug.
These are the issues that I would like to get across to the public and to
our legislators. My book and my story serve only to give me some patina of
authority which I otherwise completely lack.
A petition to 10 Downing Street has been launched urging the government to
do the testing of LDN so that it can become the drug of first instance for
all
immune system disorders. Google "petition LDN 10 Downing" to find it. Please
take a minute or two to sign it.
I believe the petition can serve as a rallying point to unify the efforts of
the thousands of people who have been saved by the drug and are trying to
get it
out to all those who need it.
Dr. Chris Steele has told us that he will personally deliver the petition to
10 Downing once it is ready.
The last sentence of the "Editor's Selection" on this site when I searched
for
The decision to take LDN is a matter for individual judgement, though people
are
advised to 'err on the side of caution' until the safety and effectiveness
is
fully established.
Since LDN has been used effectively for over 20 years to treat MS with no
adverse side effects reported whatsoever, I suggest also that people "err on
the
side of caution." They should begin using LDN immediately ! They have
nothing
to lose and everything to gain. My experience is not an "anecdotal" fluke.
The
numbers that have been gathered show that LDN is effective in halting MS
progression and preventing relapses in 80% of the people who take it.
To the Moderators of the MSS forum, I'd like to say that it behooves you at
this
point to stop ostracizing people who mention LDN here. I've been told
repeatedly that if I post this information on the forum that it will be
taken
down and I will be banned. One of the reasons given in the past for banning
people mentioning LDN was that they were giving medical advice without being
a
doctor.
Let me make myself perfectly clear, I'm not giving medical advice. I'm
informing my fellow MS sufferers of information they need to know. Period.
I acknowledge that section 4.1 gives the MSS the right to remove any post
for
"4.1 The MS Society has the right, but no obligation, to remove, edit, move
or
close any message or group of messages for any reason."
However, all who have read this post already before I submitted it know that
it
contains nothing in it that would justify its removal.
As a result of the Glasgow conference, the LDN people have become organized.
Many of them are watching to see what will happen with this message and my
membership once I post it. There are a number of reporters and government
officials who are watching as well. Numerous local MSS chapters have already
voiced their displeasure over the information blackout regarding LDN that
continues to occur on the UK's MSS Forum.
Let the MSS's reaction to this post put the critics on notice that things
have
changed.
All of us are looking forward to working closely with the MSS to see that
LDN is
given the trials it needs to become recognized as a proper treatment for MS
by
doctors throughout the UK and the world.
It now appears that Dr. Tom Dr Tom Gilhooly of Essential Health Clinic in
Rutherglen is working with the Chief Science Officer in Scotland and
believes
he is close to getting the funding.
Last week, John Donnelly met with the Minister for State of Ireland. I
received
"Well that went great.
He asked me all the right questions.
is the drug FDA approved?
is it normal to use a drug for its side effects?
is there many people using it? 50,000 +
I got him interested enough to look at the Internet, so I said there is tons
of
information on it and you are a busy man and probably wont take half of it
in
and went to Joe's video on googleldn and he watched it all the way through.
He suggested I get onto our local police station who have an unusual high
rate
of cancer and give them some information. He is getting onto the
government's
drug advisers and finding out what the government's stand is on the drug and
will get back to me."
To all my fellow sufferers here online, I wish you all a recovery as
complete as
mine was. Progressive MS patients finally have an option to save themselves,
and this is truly a cause for great rejoicing. All you need to do to find
out
all the information you need is to do as the title of my book suggests,
Google
"LDN Naltrexone". Thousands and thousands of sites to choose from. Start at
the number one site in the Google listing if you haven't started at my
book's
site.
Warmest,
Joseph Wouk
great artical big artie!!!
more people should try LDN.
Anyone with an auto-immune condition should at least give it a try.
Its cheap, there are virtually no side effects, and best of all, it
works!


Absolutely Davizona!
Welcome aboard!

How It Works
Low dose naltrexone might exert its effects on tumor growth through a mix of
three possible mechanisms:

1.. By inducing increases of metenkephalin (an endorphin produced in large
amounts in the adrenal medulla) and beta endorphin in the blood stream;
2.. By inducing an increase in the number and density of opiate receptors
on the tumor cell membranes, thereby making them more responsive to the
growth-inhibiting effects of the already-present levels of endorphins, which
induce apoptosis (cell death) in the cancer cells; and
3.. By increasing the natural killer (NK) cell numbers and NK cell
activity and lymphocyte activated CD8 numbers, which are quite responsive to
increased levels of endorphins.1 (abstract)
