I have at least 3 autoimmune disorders (MS, Hashimoto's Thyroid, and central adrenal insufficiency). Over the past few years (2) my endocrinologist cannot seem to get my TSH levels stabilized and they are always either too high or too low. I am also experiencing intense sweating on and off like hot flashes but I am post menopausal for 12 years. I also have significant depression and have had to change antidepressants because the ones I took no longer seem to work.

Near the root of all three of your autoimmune disorders is a form of cell death called apoptosis. See below:

I has rediscovered, serendipitously, that low doses of diphenhydramine (Benadryl) inhibit cell death. Cell death, either excessive or premature, appears to be responsible for many disorders.


You might try 1 mg per 40 lbs ( or - 10 lbs) of body weight at meal and bed times. The only contra-indicator that I know of is a sodium channelopathy which are rare.


You can see some feedback on the low dose Benadryl (LDB) here:

And if you are interested, you can follow the science that I found that explains how this works and how I have progressed over the last 2 years on the LDB you can see that here:
