LDN and Memory Loss


Pamela Smith, MD

All forms of memory loss are inflammatory. This interactive seminar will focus on selected etiologies of memory loss that are inflammatory and investigate how low-dose naltrexone may be an effective therapy.

  • Understand that all forms of memory loss are inflammatory
  • Examine Lyme disease as an etiology of memory loss and the effectiveness of LDN as one of the therapies for this disease process
  • Investigate the connection between autoimmunity and memory loss and how LDN therapy balances the immune response
  • Explore LDN as a treatment for Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease process that has a major impact on memory, effectively treated with LDN

This seminar begins with examining the role of inflammation and cognitive decline. It will then analyze the anti-inflammatory effects of low-dose naltrexone and its positive effects upon memory by investigating its role in the treatment of two known causes of memory loss: Lyme disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
