Looking for a cure for als? It’s been there all along.

It’s repeated over and over. “This thing called als, or motor neuron disease, was first described over 140 years ago, and still no cause or cure has been found.”

Well repetition does not make something true and that no cause no cure for als thing is a case in point.

The cure for als has been around all along, and it’s not in the form of a pill, or stem cells, or anything else imposed from the outside. It’s a whole different thing. The cure for als is in the form of information, understanding, knowledge and common sense.

For instance, in case you are not aware of this, the incidence of als in people who have served in the military is generally somewhere between 1.5 to 2 times that of the general population. So common sense says that something that goes on with people in the military causes als to happen.

Here’s another clue. While many are aware that als is also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, far fewer are aware that Lou Gehrig was a stress case who did not take very good care of himself , had major emotional issues and was basically addicted to playing baseball. Could that be why his nervous system crashed? Common sense says that that sounds likely.

Meanwhile, unbeknownst to many, there are people all over the place who have healed themselves after being diagnosed with als. In fact I listed some of their accounts on this blog post.

Here’s the real deal. After over a decade of working with people to help them heal, I reached out to someone diagnosed with als. I had read that supposedly there is no cure for als, and yet I had seen this kind of story before and knew from the beginning that als would be solvable.

Since then I have talked with likely over a thousand people diagnosed with als, I lost count, and I have read about many more, and here’s what I have found.

There is a cause for als, and it’s obvious to anyone who knows where to look. It’s not just one thing exactly; it’s generally a combination of things like stress and certain things in people’s diets that freak out their neurons and emotional repression and things like that. This isn’t the kind of stuff you easily see looking through a microscope. It’s the kind of thing you find out by interviewing hundreds of people for hours.

Also, what I have more than confirmed is that there are available ways to solve or cure als or heal “naturally.” In fact one of the more bizarre things I uncovered was this als healing account by Evy McDonald. What made it so bizarre to me was that it was written in 1988. In other words, there I was thinking that my way of solving als by using a holistic approach was something original, and meanwhile over twenty years before I had that idea, someone had been saying pretty much the same thing. She had even presented her story to organizations involved in looking for ways to cure als, just as I have. So in addition to my figuring out how to solve als and helping people do that, there have been many many others who have followed similar paths and achieved similar results.

Could medical methods have some place in solving als? Probably. While it may not be possible to really “cure als” by doing things like using medication or injecting stem cells, probably medical techniques can help people somehow in their healing processes, maybe by temporarily stabilizing their health, or by helping them rebuild once they have stabilized themselves.

Anyway, the reality is that rather than really needing to look for a cure for als, what needs to happen now is for the word to get around that there are available today ways to solve als, and for people to learn how to apply the current body of knowledge. The faster we do that, the faster we can make als a memory and make progress at healing our world.

P.S. To see this in action, check out the fundraising page for Healing ALS, a film in production that will include interviews with people who are succeeding in solving als and information on how they are doing it. Very cool. They already have some film segments posted along with more information on people healing. http://www.healingals.org/

The key to getting healthier? Your ideas and ways have to change.

I see this type of thing all the time, and have been fooled by it myself.

Someone who is having major health problems will tell me about what is being done to solve them, “Well we are using acupuncture to strengthen my immune system.” or “Once this protocol kills off the Lyme disease, then my neurodegenerative problems will be solved.” or “I have been going to Mexico for stem cell treatment and I am already feeling stronger.”

So everyone, including me sometimes, is all optimistic. Then six months, a year, or whatever time later, the person is way sicker. Somehow, as cool as the methods being used may sound, they are not working.

What is it that goes wrong time after time?

The problem is that these people’s strategies for healing are missing or are light on one key thing. That thing is changing their ideas and ways. If you don’t somehow change your ideas and ways, which are what really underlie any health problem, then you are not really going to get healthier.

Consider this contrast.

Earlier this year I first talked with two people, both of whom had been diagnosed with als, a health problem involving progressive degeneration of motor neurons. Also, for both of them the picture has had an additional complicating aspect, the presence of Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacterium involved in the creation of so called Lyme Disease.

One of the two people has a sister who is professionally involved in the wellness field. Not only has he had extensive help and advice from her and her healing center colleagues, but also he has been working with others, and he has been using all kinds of seemingly sophisticated, heavy duty methods to solve his health problem.

The other guy, over the same period of time, has mostly just been working on changing his ideas and ways, and as part of that does regular meditation.

The result?

While the first guy, using all those resources and methods, is now much sicker than he was a year ago, is having trouble speaking, and wonders if he can heal at all, the second guy, just by changing his ideas and his ways, has seen improvement in all areas of his life, including his physical health, and has returned to work.

The same thing holds and similar examples can be found whatever the health problem may be.

There are always reasons, factors and patterns, that underlie the creation of a problem, and when a person’s diet, emotional patterns, mindset, beliefs, life strategies or any other aspect of the person’s life is somehow involved in the creation of sickness, in order for the person to heal, these things needs to truly change.

So while methods like massage, medical marijuana, hyperbaric oxygen, herbal treatments, antibiotics, radiation and reflexology might have their value and may help in some way, the real thing that matters is changing ideas and ways, and if you want to heal, you need to ask yourself how your ideas and ways are changing and how those changes are going to make you healthier.
