Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost.
A-myo-trophic comes from the Greek language. "A" means no or negative. "Myo" refers to muscle, and "Trophic" means nourishment–"No muscle nourishment." When a muscle has no nourishment, it "atrophies" or wastes away. "Lateral" identifies the areas in a person's spinal cord where portions of the nerve cells that signal and control the muscles are located. As this area degenerates it leads to scarring or hardening ("sclerosis") in the region.
As motor neurons degenerate, they can no longer send impulses to the muscle fibers that normally result in muscle movement.
Initially, the symptoms of ALS may be so subtle that the symptoms are not even noticed. Eventually, one experiences obvious weakness and/or muscle atrophy. This is followed by twitching, cramping, or stiffness of affected muscles, and/or slurred and nasal speech. The twitching, cramping, etc. associated with ALS is a result of the dying motor neurons.
With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
Like virtually all neurodegenerative disorders, the cause of ALS is still undefined. However, one strong possibility is the idea of a neurodegenerative chain-reaction which is common in all neurodegenerative disorders in which cellular 'faults' produce or induce some type of a ‘cascade’ failure that leads to progressive neuronal loss and progressive degeneration. Given that familial ALS has been linked to a mutation on the gene coding for superoxide dismutase (a critical enzyme involved in the protection of mitochondria against oxidative stress), early work has focused on oxidative stress again, a probable mechanism in virtually all neurodegenerative disorders.
Oxidative stress is created (and managed) within the mitochondria, the primary chemical energy generation system in each cell. Most free radicals (which cause oxidative stress) are produced in the mitochondria but, there are extensive cellular defenses against this stress in the mitochondria itself (in which superoxide dismutase plays an important but not exclusive role).
A critical issue is the emerging evidence that in aging, there is probably progressive damage to mitochondrial DNA and progressive failure of the mechanisms by which the mitochondria are protected from oxidative stress. There is work suggesting that progressive damage to the mitochondria is a central mechanism in age-related change in general so, damage to the mitochondria may be a common denominator in all age-related neurodegenerative diseases.
Failure of the mitochondria to manage oxidative stress can lead to a lot of undesirable effects, including premature cell death, damage to other cellular organelles and disorders of protein folding (an area of increasing interest in ALS and many other neurodegenerative disorders).
Since neurons, with a few exceptions, cannot be replaced, any process that stimulates premature cell death of motor neurons will eventually lead to negative motor symptoms and eventual motor system failure. Evidence suggests that premature cell death may be stimulated (as a primary cause of atrophy) in both upper and lower motor neuron groups in ALS.
The onset of ALS has been linked to several factors, including: a virus; exposure to various neurotoxins or heavy metals; DNA defects; immune system abnormalities; occupational involvement in military service and elite sports (where the issue again may be toxic exposure); and enzyme abnormalities.
Surgeries involving the spinal cord have also been thought to play a role in the onset of ALS, possibly due to the increased burden of oxidative stress and inflammation after spinal cord injury or stress.
There is a known hereditary factor in familial ALS (Fals); however, there is no known hereditary component in the 90–95% cases diagnosed as sporadic ALS An inherited genetic defect on chromosome 21 (coding for superoxide dismutase) is associated with approximately 20% of familial cases of ALS. The children of those diagnosed with familial ALS have a higher risk factor for developing the disease; however, those who have close family members diagnosed with sporadic ALS have no greater a risk factor than the general population, suggesting again an environmental or other non-genetic cause.
Some environmental causative factors have been suggested for the increased incidence in the western Pacific. Prolonged exposure to a dietary neurotoxin called BMAA is one suspected risk factor in Guam; the neurotoxin is a compound found in the seed of the cycad Cycas circinalis, a tropical plant found in Guam, which was used in the human food supply during the 1950s and early 1960s.
The very high incidence of the disease among Italian soccer players (more than five times higher than normally expected) shows a possible link between the disease and the use of pesticides on the soccer fields (several of which have been linked to neuronal toxicity).
According to the ALS Association, military veterans are at an increased risk of contracting ALS (again, possibly implying a link to neurotoxins chemical exposure). In its report ALS in the Military, the group pointed to an almost 60% greater chance of the disease in military veterans than the general population.
The former Indian Army Chief of Staff General K.Sunderji also suffered from ALS before passing away. For Gulf War veterans, the chance is seen as twice that of veterans not deployed to the Persian Gulf in a joint study by the Veterans Affairs Administration and the DOD, another epidemiologic association suggesting a link to toxic exposure.
Dietary intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) has been shown in several studies to decrease the risk of developing ALS and other neurodegenerative disorders, probably through several mechanisms, including promotion of neurotrophins such as BDNF
Based on my muscle testing, ALS is caused by too much toxicity, especially of heavy metals and fat soluble environmental toxins. Because of a damaged blood brain barrier, these toxins are in the brain along with being in cells.
Additionally, poor quality vegetable and seed oils in the diet, Omega 3 and Omega 6 primarily, damaged by heat and chemical processing or by cooking and baking with them, clog up the cellular walls causing inflammation and damage to cells.
A principle cause of toxicity are the pathogen toxins that disrupt cellular detoxification processes and genes, so that toxins build up in the cells. The main pathogen to cause this is from Candida overgrowth.
There are five main actions to take to try and reverse ALS.
These include the following. Repairing the blood brain barrier. Consuming good quality oils in the right ratio so the body can gradually improve cell wall function and inflammation reduces. Removing toxins from the brain and cells. Eliminating the pathogens that release toxins that damage the genes controlling production of glutathione and other detox enzymes. And finally, stimulating repair and regeneration.
Listed below are all the supplements needed to work on all these issues. They will be listed in order of importance. They do not have to all be done at once. In fact, you can start with just the first 4, if it is necessary to limit what you get.
Damage to the blood brain barrier is a major problem with ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's, MS and other brain related health issues. In fact, almost everyone has significant damage. This elixir initiates a number of processes to stop further damage, and to additionally heal and repair the blood brain barrier. Repairing this is vitally important for being able to eventually stop ALS and then to enable improvement. Do 2 per month for 6 months. Start at 8 drops twice a day.
Oxy E Plus Silica is a mineral concentrate that creates oxygen in the body while also supplying a water soluble silica. The oxygenation gives more energy. It stimulates cellular repair and healing. The silica, when used in the small suggested doses will help to eliminate aluminum from the brain and body. People with ALS typically have elevated levels of aluminum. Most vaccines use aluminum. It can be picked up from soda cans and aluminum cookware too. For helping to eliminate aluminum, as the silica replaces aluminum in cell receptors, add 3 drops of Oxy E Plus Silica to every 8 oz. of water or juice. Try to do as much as possible. A bottle has approximately 2000 drops so this will last months. In conjunction with this also take CSE Elixir. This elixir has frequencies that micro clusters water molecules. This enables the water to get into cells better. Put 1 drop of CSE in with the Oxy E Plus Silica drops - every time you give it. Doing so significantly improves the effectiveness of the aluminum removal that you get with Oxy E Plus Silica. A bottle has 900 drops.
This elixir turns on repair of the genes that make the enzymes and toxin transporters for the three detoxification pathways in the liver and cells throughout the body. In addition, it activates production of all the enzymes, including glutathione, and toxin transport proteins in these pathways. This enables the liver more efficiently process toxins. It also balances the Phase I and Phase II detox pathway enzymes so that the work together optimally. Typically after 4 to 6 months of use, the liver is able to make these detox pathway enzymes and toxin transport proteins on its own and this is no longer needed. Optimally use 2 per month for 3 months and then 1 per month for 3 more months.
It is only after you get your liver working well that you can start to efficiently detoxify your body. This detoxification is extremely vital for ALS. As you notice, there are many different detoxification supplements in this protocol.
2 bottles a month Super PEO Essential Fatty Acid Formula
This 8 ounce bottle is a combination of organic cold pressed oils and essential oils that supplies the optimal ratio of Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s for cell health and cardiovascular health. This optimal ratio made from high quality oils enables the body to build high quality, permeable cell walls. This enables cells to uptake oxygen and nutrients much more efficiently. Research has shown that poor quality polyunsaturated fatty acids clog up cell wall function and contribute to inflammation in the body. Your body will use the high quality fatty acids found in Super PEO in preference to other poor quality oils in the diet.
Again a major issue with ALS is the consumption of poor quality, cooked or heat or chemically processed polyunsaturated vegetable oils. Taking Super PEO will gradually heal your body of the damage caused by these oils.
This is a liposomal glutathione supplement that delivers into your cells the very hard to absorb, top nutrient for detoxing cells and the number two antioxidant, glutathione. Glutathione Force focuses on improving cellular health and on increasing the production of energy in cells. Not only does it bring glutathione into cells to help detoxify them, but it also carries in CoQ10, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, D Ribose, and many other nutrients that improve cellular health, along with the health of your heart and liver. It will help your cells work better along with helping detoxification.
Zeolite is a mineral that has an affinity to heavy metals, especially mercury. It picks them up and stores them in its molecular structure and carries them out of the body. Zeolite is not used by the body and is excreted within 6 hours. This zeolite gets to more places in the body because of its frequency enhancing and additional ingredients. Removing heavy metals is very important in the battle against ALS.
Glandular Energy & Nerve Pathways Optimization Elixir. This elixir tells the body to optimize and repair all nerve and energy pathways between glands, between glands and organs, and any other nerve or meridian pathways connecting to the glands. These become damaged by environmental toxins. With the development of ALS being connected up to excess environmental toxins, these glandular energy and nerve pathways become damaged and need repair.
Optimizing these will improve the functioning of the glands and thus improve overall health and wellbeing. This will not be a fast process, healing these pathways and improving gland function. GENPO is likely to be needed to be used 8 months or so. Two bottles a month for 2 months, and then 1 bottle a month for 6 months.
This elixir activates a process in the body where the lymph system identifies and packages up toxins and carries them to the large intestine or the skin to be eliminated. This bypasses an overloaded liver and significantly speeds up the removal of toxins from the body. This is the most important detoxification supplement to use when the body is overloaded with toxins as it enables your body to eliminate toxins even though a poorly functioning liver is failing to do so. Work up to using 2 bottles a month for six months and then one bottle a month for another year or more. It takes a long time to detoxify the body. More detoxification on top of all the other suggestions above. ALS is significantly connected to toxicity.
2 bottles a month Memory Recovery Elixir
This elixir contains the vibrational frequencies of the subtle energies of a set of instructions that talk to your body. These instructions work on countering a number of the major causes of significant and debilitating brain decline. It helps with ALS just as much as with Alzheimer's or autism.
It starts out by increasing production of the IL-33 protein to enable the immune system to better identify, and release more of an enzyme that digests, amyloid plaque and oligomer clumps. Excessive amounts of these plaques and clumps could be interfering with memory and cognitive function. In addition, increased levels of this protein help reduce inflammation. To help remove plaque and tau in other ways, It turns on production of a unique antibody which has been shown in research to digest amyloid plaque and tau.
This elixir also instructs the body to improve the quality of and increase the quantity of nerve synapses in the brain. It especially focuses on turning off excessive C1q protein activation in an adult brain as this activation destroys synapses. Adolescents need this pruning and destruction, in adults it damages memory and cognitive function.
To help protect the brain, Memory Recovery Elixir instructs the body to find and remove aluminum and heavy metals from the brain. And to do the same with candida, molds, fungi, viruses, bacteria and mycoplasma. These all have destructive effects on the brain and cause chronic inflammation of the brain and nervous system.
Memory Recovery Elixir turns on a series of optimizations to enzyme and hormone production designed to improve brain function and to prevent damage to the brain or to health damage to the brain that is there when there is ALS.
This is a high quality CoQ10 that sets a new standard of solubility and absorb-ability which is increased by the addition of esters, making it much more bioavailable. Human trials show that taking ProCoQ10 results in 18 times higher serum levels of CoQ10 than the same amount of standard CoQ10. These trials also show that, at just 30 mg per day, ProCoQ10 reduced daily DNA damage in humans by 51%. The amount of ProCoQ10 in Super ProCoQ10 is 200 mg per capsule. It also contains vital nutrients lithium and niacin, and rice bran extract to further support cells, the brain, and the heart. This is another needed nutrient that will help improve the functioning of cells when there is ALS.
Will last months. One ounce bottle of emulsified vitamin A drops. After reading how neurons that express a particular RORB protein were the neurons most likely to be damaged by tau tangles, I tested that significant amounts of vitamin A would help to protect these neurons. Therapeutic use for adults is to use 2 drops a day. About 25,000 units daily for 6 months, then reduce to 1 drop a day. A bottle has 700 drops.
This elixir is a unique and powerful way to deal with candida fungal overgrowth and all other pathogens in the body. It tells the immune system to grab hold of candida and escort it out of the body without killing it. Reducing die off symptoms. Does the same for bad bacteria, mycoplasma and viruses too. It also tells the immune system to grab candida spores and carry them out too. In addition the lymph system is alerted to package up candida, fungal spores, and pathogens of all types, and to carry them to the skin or colon wall, to push them through and eliminate them from the body. This elixir is one of the most efficient way to eliminate candida and other pathogens, and fungal spores too. Use 2 per month for six months, then one per month for another 6 months. Stop too soon and the candida comes back. Candida overgrowth may be responsible for the initial damage to the blood brain barrier that allows pathogens, toxins and immune system cells to damage the brain and lead to the development of ALS. Eliminating it is necessary to enable as much healing and recovery as possible from ALS.
This elixir activates production of transport proteins to carry oxygen and glucose into cells and throughout cells. Greatly increasing cell metabolism - which is so vital for ALS. The production of transport proteins for many minerals and vitamins into cells are activated. This improves cell metabolism. Enhances cellular repair and recovery. It is testing as being most useful for health issues where cell function is compromised, coming in at 999 out of 1000 for autism, Alzheimer’s, ALS, Parkinson’s, and more.
These transport proteins were damaged by Candida or other pathogen toxins. The toxins damage the genes controlling production of these transport proteins. As a consequence, not enough nutrients get to where they need to go. Cellular function suffers. All this sets the stage for the development of ALS.
Again, lack of the proper fats getting into cells contributes to the development of ALS. This elixir optimizes fatty acid transport protein levels. This elixir increases these levels and optimizes all aspects of fatty acid utilization and absorption into cells. It seems that toxins must have disrupted production of these so that the cells can’t uptake and utilize fats. This is likely a major contributor to the development of ALS.
