Psoriasis Action Month & Low Dose Naltrexone
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by the rapid buildup of skin cells, leading to red, itchy, and scaly patches on the skin. While there is no known cure for psoriasis, various treatment options exist to manage its symptoms. In honor of Psoriasis Action Month, we wanted to share a therapy that has been shown to help with Psoriasis.
In recent years, a medication called low dose naltrexone (LDN) has gained attention as a potential alternative approach to managing psoriasis. Naltrexone, an FDA-Approved Medication for alcohol and opioid addiction, is being used in low doses for many autoimmune, dermatological, chronic pain and mental health conditions, including psoriasis.
LDN works by modulating the immune system, reducing inflammation and restoring balance to your body. LDN stimulates the release of endorphins, which are natural opioids produced by the body. Endorphins help to regulate immune system function and reduce inflammation by inhibiting pro-inflammatory cytokines, therefore promoting the release of anti-inflammatory substances.
As we strive to raise awareness during Psoriasis Action Month, exploring alternative treatment approaches like low dose naltrexone (LDN) for psoriasis is essential. If you have any questions about LDN, or are curious if LDN could be beneficial for you, call the pharmacy to speak with one of our team members, or consult with your healthcare provider.
