Hi Dr. Braverman,

I am working on filling out your clinical questionaire and came accross an old note from when I was doing Napro. What are your thoughts on Naltrexone? My Dr was going to prescribe it, but then I read Dr. Beers book and moved on to RI without giving it another thought. I see from the below website that it does impact the immune system and sounds like it might be related after all.

seems to be only one source for its use. Im always open minded about treatments not enough data on this for me to recommend, no clear mechanism for its action. I havent used it and have been quite successful as they say if its not broken dont fix it. This does not mean that it doesnt work, I just need to understand the mechansisms before trying it myself, seems not many have.
