The Best Internist And Integrative Medicine Doctor In Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Cho utilizes low-dose Naltrexone to naturally boost the body’s endorphin production and receptor sensitivity, offering diverse health benefits without narcotic effects. This treatment enhances well-being by increasing endorphins’ interaction with opioid receptors.

What is Low-Dose Naltrexone (LDN)?

Naltrexone is naturally compounded at a low dose to help your body to increase production of endorphins as well as increased production of receptors and their sensitivity. It works without any narcotic effects. After LDN is metabolized, the newly produced endorphins now bind with the sensitized and plentiful opioid receptors, exerting a myriad of health benefits.

Benefits of LDN

Elevated endorphin levels typically last around 18-20 hours. These endorphins upregulate the activity of the immune and microglial cells in your body, as well as the production of toxic T cells, which are natural cancer-killing cells. Benefits include:

  • Decreased inflammation
  • Facilitation of tissue and wound repair
  • Weight loss
  • Inhibition of tumor growth so cancer prevention
