For Low Dose Naldex, its only blocking endorphins for a short time frame (usually at night) so from what I understand, depression shouldnt be a problem. I have come across multiple stories of people saying they actually had a more positive outlook. Not sure how it will work for me...
I'm not 100% sure how it actually works or why endorphins being blocked, help autoimmune disease...? Does anyone else know?

Source: http://www.mediamedika.net/archives/414 (among others)Through complex protein-related transport and transfers, the main role of selenium is as selenoprotein in various forms, i.e.: (i) Gluthation peroxidase (GPx); (ii) Thioredoxin reductase; (iii) Iodothyronine deiodinase; (iv) Selenoprotein P; (v) Selenoprotein W; and (vi) Selenophosphate synthetase.
The interrelationship between iodine and selenium in the soil need to be clarified. Although the issue is still interesting to search, most researchers agree that selenium plays important role in iodine metabolism through the following mechanismi) role of iodothyronie deiodinase which catalyses the conversion of T4 to T3 (and T3 to T2) as the most important path of thyroid hormon metabolism; (ii) role of GPx as main antioxidant which protect cell membrane (of also thyroid gland) to process thyroid metabolism; moreover GPx acts as balancer of availability of T4 and T3, especially in the important organs such as brain and heart, and very specially in foetus; (iii) estrogen sulfotransferase which control development estrogen to prevent excess which is potential to depress thyroid function. Role of interaction of selenium deficiency and goitrogenic overload is also found to be very important. Those all brings us to think of selenium-iodine balance in relation to the development of thyroid hormone.
Unfortunately the full paper is in indonesionan(?)...
Female, have Hashimotos w/lots of antibodies treated with Erfa + levaxin (Norwegian equivalent to synthyroid)
Leptin Reset is FREE and its already helped me feel better than many things i've tried...its one of many reasons mainstream docs will not recommend it...likewise, LDN is something that probably wont ever be FDA approved bc there is no money in curing/helping autoimmune disease with cheap drugs that already exist...
