In light of National Autoimmune Disease Awareness Month which is observed throughout the entirety of March, author Julia Schopick points to a rare yet proven treatment for autoimmune diseases that could save both lives and lower healthcare costs. The break-through treatment, Low Dose Naltrexone, is still an unknown to a vast majority of doctors and patients. However, for those suffering with autoimmune diseases, it is the best hope yet.
Schopick is the author of the blockbuster book Honest Medicine which explores innovative medical treatments. After her husband was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, Schopick was driven to search for better treatments and more effective methods. Inspired by his survival years beyond doctors’ predictions, she saw firsthand the power of certain treatments and the importance of spreading the word about them. Now a passionate expert on a whole range of low-cost, non-toxic, effective treatments, Schopick has found “LDN has had tremendous success treating people with many autoimmune diseases.”
A variety of autoimmune diseases afflict more than 50 million Americans and exceed $100 billion in direct health-care costs each year. The drugs commonly used to treat these diseases typically are expensive, ineffective and are accompanied by damaging side effects.
“What keeps (LDN) on the outskirts of our awareness?” asks Schopick. “A terrible, medical Catch 22, in which most doctors only prescribe the drugs that are manufactured and marketed by pharmaceutical companies who have a stranglehold on the megastudies used for FDA approval.”
According to Schopick, when it comes to autoimmune diseases, patient education has never been so important. The good news is a growing network of patients are learning about LDN. March is the perfect month to shed light on the incredible importance of this drug.
