Multiple Sclerosis



At The Compounding Lab we are a compounding pharmacy that compound many preparations that support and assist in creating wellness for helping reduce Multiple sclerosis (MS) syptoms. MS is a disease of the central nervous system, interfering with nerve impulses within the brain, spinal chord and optic nerves. These cellular changes like scars occur within the central nervous system and depending on where they develop, manifest into various symptoms.

MS is one of the most common diseases of the central nervous system with over 23,000 people living with the disease in Australia and more than two million diagnosed worldwide. There is currently no known cure for MS however there are several treatment options and ways to improve and manage symptoms. - See more at: http://www.msaustralia.org.au

One Option being Compounded is :
Low Dose Naltrexone:
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is an exciting treatment option for multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, cancer, central nervous system
disorders, and other conditions in which patients benefit from the immune system enhancing effects of LDN. is the most
reliable source for low dose naltrexone in Brisbane, as we follow the most stringent standards of potency testing for all
compounded pharmaceuticals.

The commonly available form of Naltrexone comes in 50 mg, the dosage appropriate for blocking the effects of opiate based
drugs, which is the FDA approved purpose. Low dose naltrexone has been found to be effective in boosting immune system
functioning in doses of 1.5 to 4.5 mg, but we dont have a comercially available form at these strengths approved by the
TGA. There is a substantial and growing body of scientific evidence to support the use of low dose naltrexone, as well as
thousands of individuals who have benefited from its use for a variety of conditions.
How low dose Naltexone Works has many therories in essence it Reduces cell division and binds to Opioid Growth Factors.
Cell division - All agree that normal regulation of the division of cells is a good thing. When cell division gets out of
control we call it cancer and several other names. That’s when doctors and patients want a method to return the cell
division to normal.LDN

Opioid Growth Factor - Produced naturally, an endorphin called OGF or Opioid Growth Factor keeps cell growth in control.
An endorphin is a naturally occurring chemical in your body. OGF is an endorphin that’s produced by every cell in the body.

OGF binds to a special receptor known as Opiod Growth Factor Receptor - OGFR or Opioid Growth Factor Receptor. OGFR is
present on the surface of every type of cell. When OGFR binds to and OGF Receptor a cascade of events occurs that helps to
control cell growth. It’s vital that OGF is first produced by the cells and that it then binds to the OGF Receptor. If it’s
not produced or it does not bind to the receptors your body won’t work as it’s supposed to.
OGF produced in blood cells that control the immune system regulates the growth of these cells and keeps the immune system
balanced and functioning properly.
Naltrexone effects on the OGF - When Naltrexone binds to an OGF Receptor it blocks the receptor preventing OGF from binding
there. Resulting in the affected cells becoming deficient in OGF.

Three Processes occur:

1.More OGF Receptors
2.Receptors More Sensitive
3.More OGF Produced

BIG differences between Naltrexone and using Low dose Naltrexone (LDN)
1.Administering a low dose of Naltrexone blocks the OGF Receptor for only a few hours
2.Only a low dose of Naltrexone will be metabolized fast enough so low side effects seen
