Restorative Health of eastern CT
compassionate care focused on the whole person
My career in health began in 1996 as a Family Nurse Practitioner at a large community health center in the inner city of Chicago. A few years later, I began midwifery school and for many years practiced as a full-scope Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) attending nearly 300 births. In recent years, through my own journey of heath, I returned to my family practice roots as well as Integrative Health. My current practice is focused on helping patients heal holistically using lifestyle medicine, Low Dose Naltrexone, and high-quality supplements. I am now certified as a LDN Specialist and will use this medication to help treat a variety of conditions.
My goal is to help empower patients to bring restoration in their health care journey by taking a holistic approach to healing. Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is one tool that can help boost a patient's natural immunity and help the body to heal itself.
**At this time, I am focusing my practice as an LDN specialist, and will work in conjunction with your PCP and/or specialists to help restore your health. My practice is limited to educating, prescribing, and assessing LDN use. I will not be directly managing other conditions.

Low dose Naltrexone
Naltrexone is a safe medication that has been FDA approved and used since the 1980s. When used in low doses, it has been found to regulate the immune system to bring healing. The FDA approved Naltrexone in 1984 to help treat opioid and alcohol addiction. When used for this purpose, the standard dosing is 50-300mg daily and has been found to be safe and non-toxic, even with long-term use. Dr. Bernard Bahari in New York City discovered incidentally that while weaning his HIV and opioid dependent patients from Naltrexone, these patients developed widespread positive effects on other conditions.
Using Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) in much smaller doses is an off-label use of a mainstream FDA approved drug Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is used in much lower doses than Naltrexone, and often the maximum dose is 4.5mg, although doses from 0.001mg to 16mg have been used clinically. When used in these small doses, this medication has been found to increase the body's natural endorphins, decrease pain, and decrease inflammation. There are many conditions which may be improved through the use of LDN including: multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, chronic Lyme, cancer prevention, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer (an adjunct treatment and preventive therapy), mental health disorders, and much more.
LDN is extremely safe, is tolerated well by most patients, has almost no drug interactions, and is reasonably priced. LDN is only available through compounding pharmacies and is obtained by prescription only through a trained medical professional.
