baxter has degenerative myelopathy. he is now losing control of his bowels. he does not seem to be in pain. he is beginning to
have trouble getting off of the floor. i want to give him low dose naltrexone. i've been on ldn for 4 years for m.s. baxter's problems are very similar. ldn works with the endorphin system only, i want to give him 3mg daily. how do you feel about this?
