Interviews with Patients

Rocky The Boxer
Rocky, the Koshak's son's 10 year old boxer, developed an aggressive, fast growing tumor on the side of his face that was inoperable. The veterinarian sent him home and predicted he had 6 weeks until the tumor suffocated him. After Rocky was put on LDN, the tumor reduced to half its size within 2 months, and within 4 months, it was completely gone, as were the tumors on his torso. The pictures of Rocky's recovery are a remarkable visual testimony of how LDN can work.
Maggie The Bulldog
The Koshak's dog Maggie had arthritis that kept her from getting around easily. Also, because of a heart condition, when she tore her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), she was not a candidate for surgery. The vet told the Koshak's she would always limp and be in pain. After doing some research, they decided to try giving Maggie LDN. After being on LDN, she returned to her previous activities and no longer limped. She behaved like a puppy again, much to the Koshak's delight.
Alan and Cindy Camp Koshak
Cindy and Alan, happy newlyweds who met late in life, have a supportive team approach to all life matters, including health. Cindy's health, unfortunately, was in a dire state when they married, due to her severe Sjogren's and Burning Mouth Syndromes. She was very motivated to try LDN. Alan decided he would take LDN together with her, both to be supportive and in the hope that it might help his long standing osteoarthritis pain. Their unique joint "LDN Journey" turned out to be a very fascinating one. Able to compare experiences once starting LDN, they were thrilled to see huge and unexpected positive changes in themselves and each other. Cindy and Alan hope sharing their LDN story encourages other couples to take a proactive role in supporting each other's health and well-being, including taking LDN if appropriate.
Alan Koshak
Alan had been dealing with osteoarthritis in his knees for decades. He had learned to live with the pain, but it certainly detracted from his quality of life. His wife Cindy, who had been researching LDN for her Sjogren's syndrome, discovered that some people had success using LDN for osteoarthritis pain, so she mentioned it to him. Alan decided, as part of their team approach to their health (and everything else in their lives), that he would start LDN along with Cindy. In addition to getting relief from his osteoarthritis pain, Alan also found LDN improved his mental clarity and recovery from strenuous exercise.
Cindy Camp Koshack
Despite a joyful new marriage to Alan, Cindy's life had become increasingly unbearable. In addition to dealing with Sjogren's syndrome, Cindy had also developed Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS), an extremely painful chronic mouth condition that feels like one's mouth has been scalded. Unable to find relief, Cindy's research led her to LDN. After her physician would not prescribe it, she finally found one that was willing to do so. She doesn't know where she would be now if she hadn't persisted. Grateful for the positive impact LDN has had on her life, Alan's life, and the lives of their family pets, Cindy now donates her time to educating others about LDN.
Steve's rescue poodle Dolly started having nosebleeds, which led to a diagnosis of sinus cancer. Dolly was sent home with a prognosis of 3 to 6 months to live. She began showing signs of feeling unwell, and started to withdraw. In light of Steve's own positive experience using LDN, he decided to treat Dolly with it. Steve and his family were excited to see signs that Dolly felt much better. Her nosebleeds stopped, she maintained her weight and activity, and she became perky as a puppy once again. On LDN for a year now, Dolly has well-outlived her prognosis, and shows no signs of slowing down.
Steve Nations
Steve's severe Hashimoto's thyroid disease prompted him to try LDN after other treatments failed. Once he started LDN for his Hashimoto's, Steve was very surprised to experience an immediate and unexpected healing of the severe sinusitis/allergic rhinitis condition he'd been struggling with since age six! Over time, LDN also significantly improved Steve's Hashimoto's disease, cutting his antibody count in half and resolving his challenging daily fatigue. The dramatic improvement in his quality of life and freedom from decades-old problems has turned Steve into an LDN advocate. Other members of Steve's household are now benefiting from LDN too.
Laura Dysart
Laura Dysart is so grateful that her doctor finally suggested LDN for her interstitial cystitis. After 7 previous doctors, 2 surgeries, and many treatments that were ineffective or only mildly helpful, the past 3.5 years had been very difficult. Laura had regular "date nights" with her heating pad and Percocet® in order to cope with the pain, and her IC limited her activities, sleep, and enjoyment of daily life. Within a few days of starting LDN, however, her symptoms improved noticeably. After only 3 weeks on LDN, Laura feels that her life is close to being back to where it was before her IC began.
When Pami’s “head bobbling” became physically exhausting and attracted public attention, she sought medical help and was diagnosed with cervical dystonia. With limited treatment options, she turned to LDN, which she had taken as cancer treatment in the past. After just one dose, there was a huge improvement in her condition, much to Pami’s delight and her physicians' surprise.
Kimberly Ryan
When Kim thinks back about the time in her life before LDN, when she was so ill for so many years, it brings tears to her eyes. She was an avid cyclist and gym "rat", putting herself through school while working, and living a very active lifestyle, until she was sidelined by fibromyalgia and mysterious autoimmune symptoms. It took Kim out of commission, to the point that she was unable to walk normally for months on end, and her quality of life was severely affected. After witnessing the huge change in quality of life that LDN gave to her service dog Hayliegh, who had liver cancer and a leg problem, Kim decided to try it herself. Her life changed dramatically. Her only regret is not having tried it sooner.
