Dr Monica Bolton discusses her LDN published paper.
How do you know LDN is safe? That’s important if you are starting LDN, or wondering if it is safe to stay on for a long time. Data on safety comes from clinical trials initially. As yet, there are too few clinical trials of LDN alone, but there’s lots of data from clinical trials of naltrexone.
We have just published some research about the safety of naltrexone – and it’s good news!

Pharmacist Rosella Pirulli Menta. I am a pharmacist who specializes in Bio Identical Hormone Therapy. I am licensed in three states, New York (1991) , Florida (2003) and Connecticut(2012). I am also a certified Naturopath.(1999) After graduating from St. John’s University in 1991, I decided that helping patients achieve wellness was my ultimate goal.
Being a mother of 5 children and having a great career, I realized that I wanted to make a difference in the field of pharmacy. Working behind a counter was not my ultimate objective. My passion was to meet with patients face to face and help them change their lifestyle by educating them about their concerns. There is a lot of confusing information that can make a patient apprehensive and scared to make the right step. With the help of their doctor, I can help develop a plan that will fulfill their individual needs.
The most rewarding part of what I do is monitoring a patients progress and guide them in achieving a better road to health. There is no greater joy than to see a smiling face and having a patient thank me for changing their life for the better. Please feel free to call me. I can set up an appointment and guide and support you on your journey of achieving wellness!

Cindy from the US shares her Multiple Sclerosis Story.
Charlotte from the US shares her Hashimoto's and LDN story with us.
Tarek El-Ansary Pharm.D graduated with a Pharm.D. in 1998 from University of the Pacific School of Pharmacy. I had worked at a few chain pharmacies for my first 8 years of my career. It was quite frustrating for me, due to my passion for working with patients and the obstacles that stand in the way of that with the big chain pharmacies. Mainly being understaffed with very high volumes. Finally in 2006, I bought my first pharmacy, and ran it in a way, that I could interact with patients, and really make a difference in their medical needs. In late 2013, I wanted to give myself a new challenge, and open a compounding pharmacy. This really opened me up, to a very different approach to medicine vs the conventional approach of western civilization. My job is much more rewarding now, in practicing integrative medicine, with compounding. The relationships I have with patients and their physicians, is on a much higher level than it ever was before. LDN is one of the most exciting new therapies, given its very broad medical use and nearly non-existent adverse effects.
