ADDICTION CURE? - NALTREXONE
 
04:19
Look it up. Naltrexone breaks the cycle of addiction and brings new hope for alcohol dependence and opiate drug addiction. How long will the FDA keep it available? Why aren't we hearing about this? Naltrexone is one of the first anti-craving medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the treatment of alcoholism and opiate addiction. In clinical trials, LDN has been shown to halt disease progression in Crohn's disease and certain cancers, including pancreatic cancer, and to reduce symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS) and autism. Ongoing trials are evaluating LDN in fibromyalgia and HIV/AIDS. Anecdotally, LDN has been shown to improve almost every autoimmune and neurodegenerative condition, including Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Naltrexone modulates the immune system and promotes healing. Naltrexone comes in two forms: 1) Vivirol®-an injectable time released form of naltrexone that is taken once a month. Visit Vivitrol's website for more information. 2) ReVia© or naltrexone- taken daily in pill form. Here are some of the many benefits of naltrexone in the treatment of drug and alcohol dependence: • Most patients experience dramatic reductions in craving within hours of taking the first dose. • Naltrexone blocks the high of alcohol and narcotics, reducing the incentive to drink or use drugs and significantly increasing treatment success. • Naltrexone is a non-habit forming medication that can be discontinued at any time. • Naltrexone can be given with other medications, especially those used to treat depression and other such psychiatric conditions. • Naltrexone works best when used in combination with relapse-prevention therapies. From a clinical psychiatrist: "Naltrexone does work very well in about 75% of addicts who take it. No detox/hospitalization cost. It only fails in 12% of people who give it a chance. Only 10% of people drop out of treatment since it is so easy. It may not work unless you wait a full hour before you start drinking after taking the pill. A must read on the subject would be The Cure for Alcoholism by Roy Eskapa."

The best opioid addiction treatment is more opioids
 
02:39
It seems like a paradox: Most doctors and scientists agree that the best way to treat opioid addiction is with other opioids. That’s because opioids are so powerful that they change the brain chemistry of the people who use them. That’s why quitting opioids cold turkey rarely works, and why more and more people are looking to medication-assisted treatment for help. The three approved medications for opioid addiction — methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone — regulate brain chemistry. Each medication interacts with the same receptors as opioids like heroin or oxycodone. But these meds are carefully dosed, so people who take them can function productively. This video explores the power of opioid addiction at the molecular level — and why fixing the crisis means changing the way we think about treating it.

Norwegian LDN Documentary, english subtitles.
 
22:02
n 2012 the Norwegian documentary program, "Vårt lille land” (“Our Small Country”), aired this documentary about Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN), an off-label drug that has helped many patients with a large number of autoimmune diseases and some cancers. Because the drug is off patent and therefore commercially not of interest to drug companies, most doctors have never heard of it. That is why LDN is often referred to as an example of "people powered medicine." After this documentary aired, the number of prescriptions for LDN rose in Norway from 300 to 15,000 a year, and 75 % of MDs in the country now prescribe it.

Drug used to treat Alcohol Addiction Associated with Serious Side Effects
 
01:21
FDA is alerting healthcare professionals about the risk of serious reactions at the injection site among patients treated with Vivitrol (naltrexone). Vivitrol is administered intramuscularly to treat alcohol dependence. FDA has received nearly 200 reports of injection site reactions, including cellulitis, induration, hematoma, abscess, sterile abscess and necrosis. Some patients needed surgical intervention. The risk may be increased if the drug is injected subcutaneously or accidentally into fatty tissue. Practitioners using Vivitrol should use only the specially designed needle that comes with the drug, and take care not to inject the material intravenously, subcutaneously, or into fatty tissue. The special needle may not be long enough to reach muscle tissue in patients with significant gluteal fat. Healthcare providers should consider alternative treatment in these cases. Patients who develop pain, swelling, bruising, itching or redness that does not improve within two weeks should be instructed to report this, and should be referred to a surgeon.

It makes opiate and opioid use impossible, since it blocks the euphoric effects of the drugs. The injection is completely safe and makes an ex addict feel protected from relapse. Naltrexone injections are much cheaper than Vivitrol and easier to use. Naltrexone injections costs 180 pounds. All thanks to ABC.

Rapid Detox - Opioid Addiction Treatment - Rapid Drug Detox - Opiate Addiction Treatment
 
03:14
Are you or a loved one addicted to opiate painkillers? Detox addiction to painkillers in only a few days not weeks. Call us 1-310-205-0808 We are here to help. To receive assistance or information about the Waismann Method advance rapid detox treatment for opiate dependence call us for more information and speak confidently with an expert today: 1-310-205-0808 -- The face of the American has changed a bit those addicted to powerful painkillers may include a spouse, a grandmother, even a coworker. Tonight we feature a new treatment that promises to help people kick the habit in just a few hours. Arthur Schick is a retired police officer who’s also hooked on prescription drugs. Two years ago an accident left Arthur with a broken pelvis, 3 broken vertebrae and a prescription for powerful painkillers. Today he eats 18 double Vicodin a day, taking pills every 3 hours just to feel normal. Arthur wants to get off these pills so he’s checked into a hospital ready to undergo a controversial treatment – rapid opiate detox under anesthesia. The procedure is simply called: Rapid Detox. Anyone can develop a drug habit. It has nothing to do with genetics. Anyone that takes these powerful drugs for a period of time will become physically dependent and have trouble getting off. Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin, all derivatives of the opium poppy plant, these drugs help treat severe pain but also produce a state of well-being and euphoria and that makes it easy to get hooked. As you take more and more opiates you become more and more tolerant. The storage areas in your brain become bigger and bigger which means you have more receptors and that is why people need more drug to get the same effect. Arthur’s opiate dependency was treated in an hour and a half. A cocktail of drugs keeps the patient asleep so he doesn't feel the agonizing pains of withdrawal from the drugs as a drug called Naltrexone pushes all of the opiates off of the receptors in his brain so his body doesn’t need the pain killers anymore. Once Arthur leaves the hospital he’ll take Naltrexone for 3 months, 6 months, the rest of his life – as long as he needs it. A year later patients are having a 65-75% success from the treatment.

Copy of "MIRACLE" DRUG LOW DOSE NALTREXONE HELPS MS, CANCER, & AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES, AIDS AND MORE!
 
02:28
Low Dose Naltrexone is a "miracle" drug that is saving the lives of so many with immune diseases. Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is a form of Naltrexone, a drug used to treat drug and alcohol addiction. Dr. Ian Zagon, a brilliant researcher at Penn State, made the discovery that LDN in lower doses was a remarkable treatment for diseases that invoke a hyperactive immune response. LDN helps to quiet the system down. LDN boosts the body's endorphin levels in the brain. It was found that those who suffer from numerous, immune deficiency disease have low endorphin levels. These naturally produced brain chemicals are released by the body in times of stress or to induce mood elevations. Every cell of the immune system has receptors for these agents. Studies with rats and humans has shown cancer cells to be inhibited by LDN. Many disorders such as MS, cancer, AIDS, fibromyalgia, IBS, chronic fatigue, ALS, autism, etc. are helped by LDN. There are approximately 50 diseases that can be helped by LDN. LDN must be filled by a compounding pharmacy in a non-time release formula. It is highly recommended that one of the pharmacies on lowdosenaltrexone.org fill the prescription. My prescription is filled at Skip's Pharmacy. LDN is safe, effective, non addictive, virtually no side effects, and inexpensive, about $1.00 a day. The reason that most, including doctors, know nothing about it is because the patent has expired and the drug industry cannot make hugh profits. Therefore, they will not spend the necessary funds to do studies or promote the drug. Nevertheless, for those of us who take this miracle drug, it is a lifesaver. The blonde lady in the video, Lori, came to my hometown from Florida and she happened to read my story about LDN in our local newspaper. Her brother died from MS at age 42 and she had MS and was going downhill fast. She took the story back home to her doctor and at first, he would not prescribe it to her. But she persisted and he finally gave her a prescription. Now, she can walk with the aid of a walker and she can use her hands again. My father-in-law had 2 precancerous lesions on his pancreas, which the surgeon stated that he must have immediate surgery, as they would turn into cancer. We said, no way. He was placed on LDN, watches his diet, takes supplements, and digestive enzymes. This has been over 3 years, he has had 3 mri's, and his lesions are shrinking and almost gone. This year, 2012 the doctor told him that he didn't need anymore mri's. Another LDN miracle! For nearly 8 years, I have been on LDN for numerous health issues. I only take LDN and not the standard, black-box warning drugs that were prescribed to me. I too am doing just fine! Check out http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.org/ and join the LDN support group at Yahoo. Ask others on the site who will prescribe LDN in your town, as this drug may save your life or the life of a loved one! There is a free book entitled, Those Who Suffer Much Know Much that can be read online. Any one interested in making donations to LDN research may contact the Penn State's donor program. Who knows what other remarkable discoveries are waiting to be discovered by these wonderful scientists with your help! Any LDN group would welcome your support too!

The Nutty Nutritionist: 3 tips on New Weight Loss Drug Contrave
 
08:40
Today I go through 3 tips to know about Contrave. A lot of people have been asking me about this drug! Here are some quick tips: 1. Contrave has two drugs in it--Naltrexone, which has typically been used to decrease cravings in those with alcoholism. In this case it is used to blunt appetite. The other component, Bupropion has been used as a smoking cessation agent and/or for depression. If you have a history of alcoholism, a seizure disorder or an eating disorder (anorexia or bulimia) you should not take the drug. I forgot to mention in the video, usually this is indicated for those with a BMI over 30 or for those who have a BMI of 27 with comorbid conditions (diabetes, osteoarthritis secondary to excess weight etc.) 2. If you experience SEVERE symptoms such as seizure or severe nausea, dizziness etc, call your doctor. I am purely sharing this information to give you guidance! :) If you feel dizzy or nausea, try taking the pill with food. Since this drug is slowly titrated over the course of 4 weeks, it should minimize those side effects. However always take caution when starting a new regimen and be aware of possible side effects. 3. The drug was studied over the course of 56 weeks and the researchers found that participants lost an average of 5% of their weight when taking the drug and making lifestyle changes (diet+exercise.) Those who received counseling or coaching lost an average of 8%!! This shows that counseling/coaching greatly improves the overall weight loss. Also it should be noted that although we often "know" what is good for us, we may have factors that block us. This is how I help my clients move forward and support them. KnowledgeXMotivation=long term change. I hope this video helps!

Prescription Meds to Help With Alcohol Addiction?
 
03:43
https://www.stopdrinkingexpert.com If you are currently worried about your drinking you might be hoping that there is a simple tablet that you can take that will make all the pain and misery go away. Alcohol addiction is a complicated problem for the producers of prescription medication because unlike any other drug addiction it is completely endorsed by society. The chances are good that around 80% of the people you know drink alcohol, and seem to do so without any problems. Take heroin or sniff glue and you become a social leper, whereas alcohol is the only drug where that happens when you stop taking it. There are very few prescription meds available to help with alcoholism. The oldest and most well known is called Antabuse, which makes the user violently ill if they consume alcohol. Naltrexone and Topamax are anti-opiate and anti seizure drugs that are being trailed with alcohol dependant people. They work by removing the ‘high’ from drinking. It is claimed that over time the drinker realises that the consumption of alcohol is not having any effect and stops. I tried all three of these drugs and found the side-effects were worse than the hangovers. Naltrexone in particular made me feel exceptionally ill, and I hated taking the tablet each day. The biggest problem with taking prescription medication to help with alcohol addiction is you have to have the discipline to take the tablet. I found that after a while I started allowing myself days off the medication as a reward for ‘a good week’, ‘success at work’, ‘the dog’s birthday’... anything really. The only way to really give up alcohol is the change the way you think about it. There is no magic bullet cure – the cure is already in your head. About the author: Craig Beck has helped thousands of people to stop drinking alcohol on their own and without any embarrassing group therapy or expensive rehab.
