What Happens After Low Dose Naltrexone?

LDN appears to have halted my MS disease progression. This has given me a chance to finally make progress on repair and recovery after years of damage, both from MS and the drugs that were supposed to treat it. Below are some of the things I've employed in recovering my body, or that have substantive research on effectiveness. 

Physical Therapies for MS 

My personal experience has been that physical therapy is essential for recovering lost functionality by restoring muscle strength & nerve conductivity. Make sure to ask if your therapist has experience with MS, and if you get private 1 on 1 sessions. I have also found CranioSacral & Feldenkrais therapy effective for neuro-rehab, balance and walking.
