LDN and Multiple Sclerosis

Speaker

Pamela Smith, MD

Abstract

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic progressive demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. This interactive session will examine a personalized medicine approach to multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis occurs more commonly in the northern latitudes. Furthermore, it is estimated that 10-15 genes may affect the risk of a patient developing MS. Women are more commonly affected than men. Women are 60% of the cases of multiple sclerosis. This seminar will review both conventional and functional medicine approaches to multiple sclerosis along with the newest therapy: low dose naltrexone.
