Ok, people are coming to this blog seeking to find ways to solve als and get healthier, so I am going to quickly summarize some of the key things involved in solving, healing from, or curing als, and maybe edit this post over time to tighten it up and make it more complete.
First thing to understand. What is called als is just poor nerve health. The issue is characterized by the neurons and related cells freaking out and not working well together and so the cells die and the nerves stop working. As a result there is reduced signal to muscles.
So solving als involves getting the neurons and other cells to calm down and work better.
Any positive step you take will help.
So one step anyone can take to improve health in any part of one’s body is improve nutrition, in other words add things to one’s diet to make it more supportive of good health. I am not going to go into detail on this here. There are plenty of nutritionists who have much to offer on this subject. Some resources that one could use for this aspect of solving als are the work of Craig Oster, Steven Shackel’s website and the Deanna Protocol. I am sure one could find endless others.
Another step one can take is to remove things from one’s diet that would hurt nerves. Pretty simple. There are plenty of things that are called food that nobody has any business putting in their bodies, from gum that’s just chemicals to diet soda to processed meat to artificially colored and flavored sports drinks. To some degree everyone knows what’s not healthy to eat. Well solving als partly involves not eating that stuff any more. Very simple. Never should have eaten it in the first place. It’s pretty much guaranteed to make you sick. Also, the diets recommended by some als focused organizations, that say eat anything to keep weight on, from bacon to ice cream, that’s somewhat of a bad idea. While keeping weight on might be a good idea, to do so, eat high calorie foods that are actually basically good for you, such as nuts, avocados and coconut oil, among other things.
Next, als is partly a trigger response cycle. The neurons are triggered by something and they respond by freaking out. Then they trigger each other and they freak out more. This also goes for any genes involved. Things can trigger genes to do things that hurt one’s health. The trigger response aspect of als is addressed two ways. Of of them is reduce triggers. The other is change responses.
Reducing triggers can involve reducing exposure to anything that could trigger neurons to freak out or genes to do damaging things. This can include eating only organically grown or no spray grown food. Pesticides can trigger, so no pesticides. It also can mean like no deodorant, using fragrance free natural detergent to clean clothes and all kinds of other things that you can think of. No Febreeze, no car freshener, no toxic paint fumes, no living across the street from an orange grove where they spray pesticides, no new carpet smell, on and on. Another possible one is vaccines, which in some cases seem to trigger neuroinflammation, and certain medications seem to contribute to issues as well. So by reducing triggers you can do much to stabilize your nerve health. One possible resource for learning about this is the work of Eric Edney. If you are going to buy a book, I recommend an ebook as that’s better for the planet and does not involve cutting down a tree which could be someone’s home.
The other side of solving trigger response cycles is changing responses. This is done by changing yourself. People’s cells respond to triggers the way the people do. People who freak out have cells that freak out. People who attack have cells that attack. So to change the response side, you change the way you respond. I could write a book on this. I have written something called ALS Explained and Solved which discusses this in more depth. You can also look into the growing body of work on reducing inflammation via meditation and things like that. All these things are basically methods for changing the way your body, which is directed by you, responds to triggers.
As long as we are talking about mind stuff, there is much more to be done in this area. I have talked with many hundreds of people diagnosed with als and they have tended to have certain psychological issues in common, and yes having these things going on can make one sick. Put it this way, if a person hates herself on some level, it makes sense that that would eventually make her sick. Guilt and shame do it too. Thinking one is not good enough is another thing that can contribute to the creation of als. Being very fearful is another. So to heal, one has to address these types of self destructive thought patterns and self images.
Overall, there is another reason people get sick and this has to be addressed too. Part of the reason people get sick is because on some level they are sick to solve some problems in their lives. While being sick does not really solve things, on some level one can believe it does, without even realizing that one feels this way. Often people who experience motor neuron health issues have real problems with relationships or their work or something and one way out or to relieve stress related to these things is to get sick. So this can be a huge contributor to health problems. In other words, a person can eat in a pretty healthy way and do other things to be healthy and still get super sick if he has real problems with the way things are going in his life or if she feels totally out of control. Solving this type of psycholgical, often unconscious, problem, can take a lot of work, and it may make sense to get help from professionals such as psychotherapists or hypnotherapists, who can help you learn to find and change what is going on.
So those are the basics of solving als. I have also heard of people helping themselves along the way with such things as hyperbaric oxygen, glutathione injections, ozone tents, high dosage methylcobalamin(not cyanocobalamin!!!), homeopathy and other such treatments and protocols. These things can help one stabilize. At the same time, one really needs to deal with the basics. Put it this way. One could be injected with the greatest magic bullet thing ever and if one still hates one’s self, or eats toxic food, or does not get certain nutrients, one could still make one’s nerves very unhealthy.
So if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with als, get to work. Everything you change, every positive move you make, every choice you improve, gets you somewhat healthier. Do enough and beyond solving als you can become healthier than you may have ever though possible.
