Natural Help for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
by Luella Isaacs
(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.
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.
* 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.
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.
