I think LDN (which helps a LOT of people) works by "boosting" or correcting the immune system, and a number of people are reporting HUGE benefits from antibiotic treatments, so dont totally count it out on that reason.

I also try to avoid foods that I think trigger "an inflammatory response". I think the whey protein (or any large protein load) triggers an inflammatory response in me.
I forgot to mention, I also tried colostrum (which may be related to the product you are talking of) and I think that didnt help either. A naturapath (or something) in the shop told me if I was buying it for an auto-immune disorder, not to bother, as the important stuff in it didnt make it through the intestinal walls in large quantities (but I never had any confirmation of that statement).
By the way, Im on LDN, Antibiotics and statins, and improving each day. The first two dont exactly dull the immune system.
