Much of what I do involves working via email with people who have been diagnosed with als or motor neuron disease and are looking to get healthier, and much of that involves sending them links to the coolest articles, videos and websites I find.
The information therein adds up to a great body of healing knowledge that supports people’s confidence that they can heal and gives them ideas that they can apply.
I finally realized that it might be nice for people to have a compilation of some of these links, so here they are, and the truth is pretty much anyone who wants to get healthier could use the awesome stuff that these links lead to.
Many people believe that their genes are somehow making them sick. Here they can get a different perspective on that and along with some ideas on how to heal.
In this interview, Gabor Mate discusses some of the psychological stuff that underlies health problems like motor neuron disease. This is just one of many great Gabor Mate videos.
Inflammation is considered a key component of motor neuron health problems. Here one can get some ideas on what to do about inflammation.
Here is discussed an interesting study of changing gene expression and reducing inflammation via meditation.
This shows just how effective changing how one handles life and stress can be.
Some great concepts are discussed here.
I find so interesting John Sarno’s idea that the physical anomalies are not the real problems underlying pain. Also, back pain is related to motor neuron disease and often comes before als type symptoms and diagnosis. The truth is that if everyone so called diagnosed with als just were to do Sarno’s back program, the results would be fantastic and the remission rate significant.
Maybe the best thing about the film trailer on this Food Matters site is the last line, “It’s a choice. You don’t have to be sick.”
This is a great illustration of what one can do via confidence and persistence, and of the merit of believing that anything is solvable.
