EDS evidence and resources~

Here is a list of sites, including primaries, that may support EDS theory. If your doctor is at all progressive, you might consider presenting some of these.

Note that I won’t be dealing with naltrexone yet. I’ve looked at Low Dose Naltrexone therapy; because of its apparent immune-boosting mechanism there are advocates who think it has potential for pretty much every immunological disorder in the book… but nothing regarding depression. It’s all up in the air and ambivalent and there simply aren’t yet enough depression-relief connections, let alone proper depression trials to support it.  So I think that recommending LDN for depression at this time might be irresponsible… Maybe later.

[this list will grow as I find the time]
