Inflammatory conditions can be painful and prevent you from living your best life. Fortunately, a new anti-inflammatory treatment called Naltrexone is available. If you are dealing with inflammatory conditions, seek help from certified medical professionals, like the ones at Nu Image Medical. You can even get a Naltrexone online prescription through a telehealth consultation. Before getting your prescription, you must understand how Naltrexone can help your inflammatory condition. 

What Is Inflammation?

Inflammation is the redness, swelling, and pain that shows up when your immune is trying to tell you that something is wrong. This is your body's way of protecting itself from infections, diseases, or further damage. While this information is intended to help protect you, it can get out of control leading to your body attacking healthy tissue. This creates chronic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and autoimmune disorders. 

What Is Naltrexone?

Naltrexone is an affordable medication that can help keep an overactive immune system in check safely. It does this by reducing pain and fighting inflammation. Doctors have begun to use it to treat cancers, autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, and mental health issues. This treatment started recently and is continuously evolving, with new methods of treatment and conditions developing regularly. 

Originally, Naltrexone was FDA approved for the treatment of opioid addiction. This is because it is an opioid receptor antagonist. In other words, it binds to your body's opioid receptors. This blocks the effects of both endorphins and pharmaceutical opioids. Although some people are afraid that it is addictive or an opioid, it is not. It is an inhibitor that prevents you from feeling a narcotic effect. Its chemical structure is similar to the opioids your body produces naturally. Therefore, it is a natural way to prevent people from feeling the impact of pharmaceutical opioids. 

Naltrexone used for other purposes is often given at low doses. Most of the programs using Naltrexone are using only a few milligrams per day. You may have to take a little more for various conditions. Once in your system, the Naltrexone will bind to your endorphin receptors and provide a blockade for up to six hours. The result is that you will feel less inflammation.

You may also end up producing more endorphins in your body. Endorphins are peptides that your body naturally produces to help regulate your cell growth, including your immune cells. Many people with autoimmune disorders tend to have low levels of endorphins. Naltrexone can help by binding to your opioid receptors. This will create a blockade and force your body to produce more endorphins. So if you have an inflammatory condition, a telehealth consultation for a Naltrexone online prescription is your best option. 

How Does Naltrexone Help?

Aside from opioid addiction, Naltrexone is most commonly used for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, multiple sclerosis, myalgic encephalopathy, autoimmune disorders, and cancers. Autoimmune disorders seem to be one of the most responsive diseases to this medication. This is a wide range of conditions, and some people find it difficult to believe that one drug can provide relief for all of these health conditions. The best way to explain this is that Naltrexone is an equal mixture of two isomers. One of the types binds to opioid receptors while the other attaches to immune cells. Although similar, these two isomers create different bodily responses. 

Based on years of research, therapy was created for autoimmune disorders using low doses of Naltrexone. This therapy works by increasing the release of endorphins in your body. The result is a reduction in the growth of unwanted cells in your body. This helps keep your immune system under control. If you are experiencing a chronic inflammatory condition, getting a Naltrexone online prescription could provide you with the relief you need. 

To begin your treatment, you will receive a low dose of Naltrexone. Over time, your doctor will increase the amount you are taking. However, Naltrexone loses its anti-inflammatory effects after a specific amount is administered, so make sure that you tell your doctor if the medication is too strong and causes side effects. As this medication takes effect in your body, you will notice that you have less inflammation. Once your excess inflammation has been reduced, your body will begin to heal, and you can enjoy a life with no more pain. 

What Conditions Does Naltrexone Help?

Research has shown that Naltrexone can act as an anti-inflammatory for a variety of conditions. Some of the conditions that lead doctors to prescribe this medication include chronic pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and cancers. However, each person is different, so be sure to tell your doctor everything about your condition. This can be done through a telehealth consultation where you receive a Naltrexone online prescription

Is Naltrexone Safe?

Many people wonder if Naltrexone is safe to take for a long time. This early in the medication's use as an anti-inflammatory, safety data comes from clinical trials. Currently, there are too few clinical trials of Naltrexone as an anti-inflammatory to say anything about long term safety. However, there have been plenty of tests concerning this medication as a treatment for opioid addiction. Fortunately, all of these studies have only shown positive results and proven that Naltrexone is safe for long term use. 

What Is Involved in a Naltrexone Treatment?

When you experience excess inflammation from a health condition, a Naltrexone treatment can help your body function properly and make you more comfortable. To start your treatment, your doctor will assess your medical history, symptoms, and lab work. Based on your diagnosis and individual condition, your doctor will provide you with an appropriate treatment plan. In some cases, you will only need minimal doses of this medication. Your doctor will help you find the right amount and prescribe it to you in person. If you need, your doctor may even be willing to do a telehealth consultation and give you a Naltrexone online prescription. 

What Methods Can You Use to Take Naltrexone?

Naltrexone is available in liquid, capsules, under the tongue drops, cream, lotions, eye drops, or tablets. An oral liquid is one of the most popular ways of taking this medication. With this method, you will take the medication daily, measuring your dosage with a baby oral syringe. This also happens to be one of the cheapest ways to take this medication. Along the same lines, you can get under the tongue drops, which are great if you have issues swallowing or want to make sure the drug gets to your bloodstream as quickly as possible. To dose this medication, your doctor will tell you how many drops to put under your tongue. This method typically costs slightly more than oral liquids. 

In the United States, capsules are available. However, it is recommended that you purchase them directly from a compounding pharmacy to ensure that you are getting the proper medication. Depending on the strength you need, these can be a cheap option or a more costly one.
