Low Dose Naltrexone (3.5 mg each night)
Serracor-NK (five pills three times daily)
I also continue to experiment with other supplements and vitamins which I will not list because they sometimes change. I have listed LDN and Serracor-NK because they are the most important medications/supplements that I take. I consider Serracor-NK to be extremely powerful and I’m thrilled with its results. I continue to try other vitamins because remission is my goal. When and if I come across another supplement that I consider very worthwhile to suggest and take on a daily basis for the rest of my life, you’ll see it at the top of this list. Until then, the only two products that I feel are worth your money and time are Serracor-NK and Low Dose Naltrexone.

Experiments are important, and that’s what clinical trials are all about. Because there is no “cure” for autoimmune diseases, I consider going to the doctor and being handed medications until something sticks, also an experiment. In other words, we are all guinea pigs and we either let our doctors decide what to put in our bodies or we make the decisions ourselves.
I chose to go the alternative route because the medications my doctor was giving me, the standard protocol for Rheumatoid Arthritis, not only didn’t work very well but they made me feel sick. Chemotherapy drugs are not fun. Steroids are not fun. Though I never tried Biologics, many people have a quick decrease in inflammation when given these options. If you don’t have insurance, drugs like Enbrel, Orencia, Humira, and Remicade can run up to $35,565 a year. It’s no wonder that doctors start patients out with the cheapest options first, like Methotrexate and Prednisone before they move on for insurance approval. But why, I ask, would you want such an expensive drug that has a black box warning? Cancer is being investigated as a top concern for children and young adults who were administered tnf inhibitors (biologics) or chemotherapy drugs (methotrexate) over a 10 year clinical trial. It’s a wonder that drugs like Enbrel and Methotrexate are approved with all of their warnings and side effects.
After being on Methotrexate and Prednisone for over a year, I kept thinking these words…”there has to be a better option!” Going the alternative route, once I figured out exactly what that was, seemed like a no-brainer to me. Why wouldn’t I give it a shot?
I had a person tell me, “you are so brave!” I have also has someone thank me for taking these alternative medications because they know no one else who does, and I am the poster child of both Low Dose Naltrexone and Serracor-NK. I do feel it’s important that people like me try alternative medications and do our best to let other people know how those medications are working. I feel in a weird way, that it’s become my duty…..who else is going to do it? I learned about Low Dose Naltrexone from a person on the support group who had Multiple Sclerosis. And I learned about Serracor-NK from a suggestion made by my crazy neighbor. I figured I was just being led into the typical dead end path, but I was pleasantly surprised to be absolutely wrong. Serracor-NKhas done miracles to my body.
Am I brave? Honestly, I wouldn’t call it that. You can if you want to, but I consider all of us brave. If you have an autoimmune disease, then you know all too well that your future is uncertain.
I feel that taking the drugs I take, which have no side effects except for improving your health, isn’t brave at all, it’s hopeful. If this were possible, I knew I couldn’t let money be in the way of me getting healthy.
