Natural Help for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

by Luella May

(The Best Years in Life) Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a rare progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. This degeneration eventually leads to cell death, making it impossible for the brain to initiate and control muscle movement. As the disease advances to its later stages, it results in total paralysis. The cause of this nerve degeneration is thought to be the muscles not receiving enough nourishment. In this article we will look at how we can properly nourish the muscles and take other steps to delay, and possibly even reverse, the progression of this disease.

When the muscles do not receive the nourishment they need, they waste away. As the muscles degenerate, it leads to scarring or hardening of the spinal cord, disabling the nerve cells that signal and control the muscles. In addition to malnourished muscles, other factors thought to contribute to ALS include environmental toxins, including aluminum, mercury, and lead.

Early symptoms of ALS include muscle weakness and difficulty in swallowing or breathing. As the illness progresses, it becomes increasingly more difficult to walk, use arms and hands, speak, eat, swallow, and breathe. However, ALS doesn't usually affect the mind. Even in its advanced stages, people with ALS do not lose cognitive function, their memory and the ability to think and reason. Their ability to see, hear, smell, and touch also remain intact.

Although, a diagnosis of ALS can be devastating, there are several constructive steps that a person can take in order to treat this disease. Perhaps the most promising treatments for ALS are cannabis oil and coconut oil. Several reports indicate that cannabis oil can help manage and alleviate ALS, and perhaps even reverse it. Also, a large number of people have reported that they have been able to halt and reverse ALS by using coconut oil and it is worth noting that coconut oil has also been proven to be effective in halting and reversing Alzheimer's and age-onset dementia and it is theorized that part of the reason it is so effective is that it provides an alternative source of nutrition to the brain cells. Perhaps it does the same thing for muscles cells normally affected by ALS.

Other steps to take to address ALS:

* Physical therapy can keep the muscles strong.

* Speech therapy can help retain the ability to talk.

* Joining a support group or seeking counseling can help deal with this disease emotionally.

Supplements that may be beneficial when treating ALS are:

* A good all-around organic whole foods derived nutritional supplement will help provide nourishment to muscle and nerve cells and the entire body. The best such product that The Best Years in Life knows of is IntraMax, which contains a whopping 415 different organic nutrients.

* Vitamin C, which supports many bodily functions. Besides strengthening the immune system, it also strengthens deteriorating connective tissue. Vitamin C is also instrumental in detoxifying the body.

* Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is absolutely essential for muscle health - and the body produces less as we age. In additions damnable statin drugs can reduce CoQ10 production by up to an additional 50 percent.

* Glutathione is essential for optimal cellular health, including nerve and muscle cells, and protects against free radical damage.

* It is essential to supplement with calcium and magnesium. Calcium and magnesium help stabilize aluminum and mercury, excessive amounts of which have been found in people with ALS. Additionally, ALS sufferers have been found to have low levels of these important minerals. When taking calcium and magnesium it should be done at a ratio of 1:2 or 1:3.

* B-Complex Vitamins and Vitamin E play an important role in muscle and nerve function. Be sure to get organic versions. Most supplements on grocers and pharmacy shelves contain synthetic coal-tar vitamins (petrochemical) and crushed rock minerals that are hard to absorb and that the body often recognizes as toxins.

* Creatine has shown to be effective in increasing strength in those suffering from neuromuscular disorders.

* Acupuncture is thought to benefit nervous system function.

* Herbs that counteract sclerosis are: Cayenne, Ginger, Cinnamon, Periwinkle, Butcher's Broom, Manjistha, Chaparral, Goldenseal Root, and Comfrey Root.

* Herbs that repair the nerves are: Lady's Slipper, Kava Kava, Valerian Root, Cinnamon, Chamomile, Blue Vervain, and Passionflower.

* Herbs instrumental in detoxing the liver include milk thistle, turmeric root, and dandelion root.

* Spirulina and chlorella help repair damaged cells, nerves, and muscle tissue.

* Colloidal Gold is also effective, due to its effects on the brain and nervous system.

ALS has been strongly linked to exposure to toxins, particularly the metals aluminum, lead, mercury and manganese. Thus, it could very well be a good idea to take items which help remove metal toxins from the body, such as cilantro, chlorella and apple pectin. An outstanding commercial metal removal product is the Jon Barron formula Metal Magic.

A very good resource site for ALS is the ALS Association website (www.alsa.org).

Lastly, it is thought that people with ALS have too much acid in their system, often due to a poor diet. It is, therefore, recommended that they follow an alkaline diet. This would necessitate eating a mostly raw diet consisting of fruits and vegetables, preferably organic. All meats, dairy products, refined grains, starches, and unhealthy oils should be eliminated, along with processed foods, junk foods, and fast foods.
