A particularly progressive and debilitating condition, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS is a particularly aggressive condition. While doctors normally don’t give very positive prognoses to individuals diagnosed with the disease, natural treatments can help improve the quality of life for individuals with the condition. In addition to traditional treatment, we suggest that you try vitamins and supplements including vitamin C, vitamin B complex, and vitamin E to better support your ALS treatment plan.

What Is ALS?

ALS, also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a disease that targets the central nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The condition causes the slow demise of these cells which typically leads to diminished physical and mental functioning as the specific cells involved in the condition are the motor neurons.

While the progression of the condition varies slightly for different individuals, ALS causes the gradual disabling of anyone affected. Over time, common tasks including walking, speaking, eating, swallowing, and even breathing becomes difficult for individuals.

How is Lou Gehrig’s Disease Usually Treated?

An ALS diagnosis can be very scary for anyone, but the good news is there are often a variety of treatment options provided. While some of the “typical” treatments for the disease are more invasive, many involve holistic practices. Physical and occupational therapy are common, as is speech therapy. Additionally, many individuals are provided with supportive devices and equipment to help them cope with everyday tasks more easily. Other more aggressive treatments include medication, feeding tubes, and breathing devices; however, these options are generally for more developed cases of the condition.

Are There Any Natural Remedies I Can Try?

We believe a balanced approach to treating this condition is best – one that utilizes traditional treatments paired with natural supplements to support overall health. That being said, a few of the most effective natural treatment supports include vitamin C, vitamin B complex, and vitamin E.

1. Vitamin C

As ALS effects the functioning of the entire body, vitamin C is a particularly important treatment support. Vitamin C helps strengthen the immune system as well as the connective tissue in the body to prevent deterioration.

2. B Complex

Vitamin B complex is a combination of the essential B vitamins. This complex helps support energy levels as well as muscle and nerve function.

3. Vitamin E

Vitamin E is another important supplement as it helps support muscle and nerve function as well. Taken as a daily supplement, vitamin E also helps prevent deterioration of the muscle function.

While nutritional supplements are an important support to ALS treatment, a variety of other natural treatments help as well. Read below to gain additional information from our readers as well as one of our regular contributors, Ted from Bangkok, Thailand.

Apricot Seeds

Posted by Nick (Ut) on 02/24/2017

I was told that apricot seeds help with treatment of als? Is that true? I been eating about 8 to 10 per day, with a liver detox multi mineral with boron and vitamin D also b12 vitamin d3 and vitamin c. I just started this stuff taking it twice a day. I take valerian root for sleep. I want to add Co Q10 in with things.

Nick. ALS.. time and effectiveness are critical in your challenge. Here is Teds chapter of emails responding to many folks needing help.

We have found Teds remedies to be spot on with many serious illnesses. Almost every single thing is available on bulk suppliers, google bulk supplements, Amazon or ebay. The critical types of b vitamins for the most effective help I will mention is Swansons Activated b they sell 2 strengths buy the higher strength. Because you need to have the most bioavailable b. This is the only affordable one I have found.

Only buy powders and capsules you will get the best results. No pills.

I make my remedies at once. Usually in the morning for the day. For instance my lysine, threonine aspirin, methylene blue, sodium ascorbate, I put 4 doses in a bottle of fluoride free spring water. They are 10 to 12 oz. I mark 4 doses on the bottle. I pour out some water to make room. Add the ingredients. Shake and take teds recommendations of timing.

Methylene blue comes as a powder in a bottle. You fill that bottle with water, shake. Then you take 1 2oz dropper bottle, Amazon. Droppers usually only fill 1/2 way. Take 2 droppers of your original solution into dropper bottle add water carefully to a little below top you need room to put the dropper back in. Make this on a glass plate as it stains. If it spills, citric acid or lemon juice take it out easily.

Here is Teds chapter. Janet

Janet, once you have the methylene blue in the dropper bottle with the water, how much do you use daily?

Replied by Janet


On an average I use 4 to 5 drops in water with 500 to 1000mg sodium ascorbate. Or ascorbic acid and a pinch of baking soda. The vitamin C keeps the methylene blue from getting a blue tinge in your eye whites. If you are well hydrated it does not happen. Your urine still might be bluish, it does not do anything. But you should always use the 2 together.

4 or 5 drops 2x a day in water with C. When I am killing a virus or cold I often add these together With four doses 500 to 1000mg of l lysine 500mg of C, then 6 drops of methylene blue to knock it out, taking 1 dose of them each hour for 4 hours, usually 3 days in a row. I add it all together in 10oz of water. Dosing as needed.

Methylene Blue should be taken before evening as it is energizing and may keep some people awake if taken too late in the day.


Coconut Oil

My friend makes us coconut cream it cures many things. I have trouble with stomach disorders so try it. It is a great detox which is the cause on many disorders.

Coconut oil is fine. What you want is an overall healthy diet of real foods. No processed, no farmed fish. As wholesome and close to the land as possible. It should be a lifestyle.

The biggest contributor to mucus is dairy. Eliminating dairy from the diet, would be my first go-to.

Run with this iodine and vitamin C (and take a multi for safe measure)

You need to detox. Iodine will detox heavy metals and help get systems back online. Vitamin C acts as like a shuttle service for the iodine going in as well as the toxins going out.

My father died of als years ago and suffice it to say - you'll get nowhere with standard medical procedure. Rilutek is a joke.

ALS is caused by toxicity, stress and degredation of the stystems. All of which can be brought back to working order, I believe.

Dosage wise take 1-2 grams of vitamin C every 1-2 hours. Maybe stop closer to bed time as it can keep you up at night and rest is important.

Iodine you'll want to aim for around 1000 mcg. Gauge yourself at maybe half that or less. Iodine will produce detox effects that are flu like and depression.

If you're getting heavy detox symtoms just dial it back a while or take a day off.

Iodine is about the long game, it can take a year for it to do its work fully.

I like kelp as a source, because it's in its natural form with other companion nutrients that will help absorbtion. Sea weeds also have addictional detoxifying elements in them ontop of iodine.

But that's the gist of it. Health is a natural, organic process. It doesn't happen overnight and won't come from a pharmaceutical drug.

We come from nature and our road to wellness is a natural one.

For Neurological diseases, ALS, MS, etc... try Plumbum homeopathic 30 or 200, Causticum is a huge central nervous system remedy, Calcarea Carb, Arsenicum in some cases... Bryonia is another... Main ones to try though are the first two... Search "homeopathy +als or ms and read the descriptions of each remedy and find the one that fits your symptoms... I got great assist from plumbum & causticum... Calc Carb also helped.. Try to be happy because mood can affect these diseases as well.

My father was diagnosed with Bulbar Onset ALS. He has been having great results with a combination of a strict gluten free diet, no sugar and supplements. We did our own hair toxicology test from test country labs. His results showed he had 3 heavy metals in his system and also a deficiency of iodine and potassium. He is now using a feeding tube formula called, 'Liquid Hope' made of organic food. We have been doing green juices, ingesting 8 oz of coconut oil per day, msm powder, vit c water (bought powder form), and added filters to all our water sources.

Please test for heavy metals and test for proper liver function. One friend has stopped his symptoms by adhering to a strict sugar-free, gluten free diet and detoxing his system. We are seeing results as well. My father was diagnosed by Mayo who promoted the Deanna significant changes or slowing of the disease. It seemed like a profit maker as anywhere the Deanna Protocol name was, it was followed by a trademark symbol. Our dr had no clue what half of the supplements were and way too much creatine involved. Most of the DP supplements were synthetic. Some naturopathic drs have been able to provide liver flush type treatments. Please test for toxicity and liver function. If doctors won't do it, tests are easily purchased on amazon or directly from the website. We had instructions and did ours at home. Don't wait for these experimental tests...because half of the people are given a placebo. It's such a waste. Diet and exercise. Keep moving and never give up!!! Surround yourselves with supportive people, not victim-minded ill people who have already given up mentally.

I treated a person that came to me several years ago.

He complained that he is progressively losing control over his legs making it difficult to walk, and that he has lots of muscle twitching in his left shoulder.

Since I believe that most of the CNS diseases are caused by funguses, I treated him for candida:

Mainly - no sweet beverages or drinks of any sort ( including fruit juices) at any time.
Large amount of probiotics. Very little sugars including fruits.

Diet: as much as he wanted vegetable salad with olive oil.
Semi hard yellow cheese or camembert (made with rennet and bacteria). Green drinks (green vegetables with one carrot only). Rice (small portion). Meat that was cooked or grilled for about two hours (moderate amounts). Eggs - two to four a week. Almonds soaked in water over night. Miso soup with wakame. Nuts and seeds

Supplements: (5-6 days a week all supplements) multivitamin and minerals. + zinc picolinate 10 mg + fish oil (3 times more EPA then DHA) 300 to 500 mg + vitamin E 200 mg mix tocopherols +1000 mg lecithin + B12 (4000 microgram a week) + vitamin C 500 mg + probiotics several strains, 2 capsules 4 times a day.

(He was instructed to wear copper bracelet, but today I will replace it by using on top of the one mg of copper in the multi, 3 mg of copper twice a week separated from any other supplement).

Exercises - at least 20 minutes a day, whatever he wanted to do in order to burn up calories, preferably before going to sleep.

In few months all his symptoms disappeared and all functions became normal.

I am unable to say for sure that it was the beginning of ALS but it is definitely worth the try.

Hyaluronic acid

Posted by Reflectivegypsy (Sicklerville, New Jersey) on 01/04/2015

Hi, Ted. I was diagnosed with ALS almost two years ago and I'm trying to find things to help me get better. I have a few questions about hyaluronic acid. On 6/6/14, you told one poster that you recommend "a small amount of hyaluronic acid .5 grams to 500 cc to water mix with sea salt 5 grams also." Did you mean to say we should use 5 grams of hyaluronic acid, not .5 grams? And how many times a day should this be taken? Thanks!

Many people who are on a combination of diabetic medications and cholesterol medication find that they develop symptoms that mimic Lou Gehrig's Disease. I know of at least 5 women in my town who have been mis-diagnosed by their doctors. One had gotten to the point of all her muscles collapsing and her lungs and heart were stopping working. Luckily, a new young surgeon at the hospital's emerg. department realized what was happening and took her off the cholesterol medication. She went from almost comatose to up in a wheelchair in 3 days, and walking by day 5. Apparently diabetic medications or cholesterol medications by themselves are fine, it's the combination that's terrible.

My father was recently diagnosed with ALS. I still have that hope that it might not be true. He takes both diabetic medicines and cholesterol meds. Can you by any chance find out what her medications were that she was taking? And how they figured out that the combo of meds were doing it to her body?

Hi Syed,

I am sorry to hear of your probably unreported "adverse reaction" to statin drugs. For up to date information on the newest findings about how statins affect the human body, see Dr. Duane Graveline's Facebook page here:

There is also a Yahoo "Stopped Our Statin Group" you can join to feel some connectiveness, research data and awareness of the thousands of statin victims out there.

Dr. Graveline is currently doing a study on Dolichols that are blocked along the mevalonate pathway along with CoQ10 and other pathways and functions essential to repairing DNA. Cholesterol is needed by every part of our bodies, especially the heart and brain. It is inflammation that we don't want.

We would like to see the statin drug companies use some of those enormous profits to fund research to help the thousands of people like you, in fact about 25% of people taking statins, to regain functions that were lost, sometimes permanently and progressively even after statins have been discontinued, after short-term/long term statin drug use. You are not alone and every person's experience and thoughts are important in finding a solution. Take care.

My Mother was a strong woman with hardly any sugar or junk. As soon as the G.P. 's put her on Statins, her health went down hill . At age 69, she died when her Mother and Father both lived well and happy into their 80's and 90's ..... my Mum was on both Statins and Avandia and other drugs, which she probably never needed because she never needed Statins in the first place .

Hello, I am gratefull for all the help I have received on this site!!

My Mother was recently diagnosed with ALS. So far she's only lost some use of arms. Now I am needing help in knowing how to proceed. I ordered supplements to begin Ted's basic ALS treatment-Lysine, threonine, glutamine, zinc, lithium carbonate, beta glucan, vitamin C, ascorbic acid, and BCAA. She will also go on sugar and gluten free diet.

I have a list of medications and supplements and am needing to know if any should be discontinued or anything added:

Riluzole 50mg 2x a day

Olmesarton-HCTZ 20/3.75

Progesterone 200mg

Synbiotic 365, Aleve gel, Womans Alive Vitamin, Vit. C, Elderberry, Omega Q10, Glucosamin Condroitin1500/1200, Red yeast rice, Lutein, low dose aspirin, Melatonin 10 mg, and Unisom Sleep

All help appreciated and I would love to hear Ted's recomendations!

I'm sorry about your mother's diagnosis. ALS has similarities to multiple sclerosis - which has been linked to the use of aspartame artificial sweetener. Does your mother use this sweetener? Or is it in any of her supplements?

Found this, too:

"Long-term exposure to heavy metals may lead to physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes."

You might try this:

There are reports of high lead levels in calcium supplements and protein powders if I remember correctly.

I can't advise you about the medications, but the supplements are probably fine to continue.

You might consider discontinuing the glucosamine and chondroiten, if only temporarily to see if her symptoms improve (Borax may work better):

Hi Sherry,

I see melatonin at 10 mg is on your list, so the following article may interest you.

As you can see by the abstract, they used 300 mgs of melatonin/day(HDM) for up to 2 years in humans administered as a suppository. In the mouse part of the study melatonin was shown to delay disease progression and extended survival. In the human part of the study, melatonin was able to return oxidative stress levels to redox equilibrium as compared to the healthy control subjects and this is important because oxidative stress is doing much of the damage in ALS patients. Melatonin is available in suppository form otc, but if your doctor will prescribe it, your mother's insurance may cover it.

If not, there is this :

and this:

One of the two drugs prescribed for ALS is Rilizole/Rilotek which is said to extend life expectancy by only a few months on average months. The other drug is called Edaravone /Radicava and is given via intravenous infusion and helps with daily functioning.

So clearly there is not a lot that current medicine has to offer for ALS.

In multiple other studies HDM has shown protective effects toward the mitochondria and neurons which are being destroyed in ALS. There is also bulk powder melatonin which would be less expensive, but this would have to be given orally and you are essentially on your own unless you can get a phone consultation with Dr. Shallenberger who is in Nevada. He gives his stage 4 cancer patients closer to 360 mgs of melatonin/day. He can give you a good idea on a dosing schedule for your mother and how best to use Melatonin in her case. His number is :

Here is a link to his contact form:

Good luck to you and your mom, Sherry.

I was just watching Eric Berg on youtube teach help for RA and he was talking about how low potassium is behind it and then he said low potassium can cause cortisol issues. So that is interesting. I read years ago on some graph that low potassium was noted in ALS and another crippling disease. It stuck in my brain. Not sure what that site was it was so many years ago, it was a graph of minerals in different diseases. I was circling trying to solve my own health issues, the graph was made from using hair analysis.

This cortisol link with potassium is huge. Most people are cortisol resistant due to too much trauma overload and insulin resistant due to too much sugar but also can be caused by stress and not diet. I read in one site that a diet with no refined sugar but loads of stress made teeth rot out below the gum line from cortisol/

Cortisol production drains the whole body of minerals and hormones and nutrients. I guess that is why the bible says fear is a sin. I hope this opens a window for you for some fresh air.

Ted is still unable to answer posts after his stroke. I can give you some info.

We used Teds' spinal virus remedy, I expanded it to ALS remedy. ALS is commonly a virus picked up in a medical setting. So Ted emphasizes topical treatment to get a good kill. This takes some doing, you might need help with the topical. I make a castor oil pack on a folded paper towel. I fold 3 or 4 longwise and fashioned to fit the length of the spine. I add castor oil and pat it in to spread it without drippyness. The some DMSO sprinkled along the length, then sprays of magnesium. Oil. Finally drops of clove oil so it looks wettish. Sit on a towel. Drop onto spine. Sit back on a towel. Do this as often as you can. We did it for 3 days. A few times a day. Can be made on sheet strips. Can be stored in a ziploc. Refreshed 10 to 12 times. If nothing else put some firm lotion, not drippy on the back of a wooden spoon with clove oil mixed in. Or even a yard stick to get it applied. This might sting, test the mix an other skin so you are prepared. Your shopping list for an online retailer. Most powders are not sold in stores. In garden supply, Diamond black Humic Acid, 1 quart. A tablespoon in water a day Aquarium supply Methylene Blue, this must be mixed and mixed again, you might need help Clove Essential oil Castor oil Magnesium oil spray Some glass, dropper bottles and spray bottles, 2 or 4 oz Powdered bulk L lysine L Threonine Sodium Ascorbate InCapsules Zinc chelate is okay, it was what we had Vanadium In Gel caps Vitamin D3 is available now days, back then not so much. Buy one that is in coconut oil To get deep into the body and extremities I have been using vitamin B1 thiamine. Ted recommended Thiamine mononitrate. We use, lipothiamine. It seem to be a more absorbed b1. On Amazon. As is all this. Ted stresses the topical remedy. And the virus killing with humic and the lysine remedy Below is my lysine recipe to make a batch. Amounts can be changed according to remedy. The remedy goes bad after 3 days and must be remade. A great addition is hyaluronic acid. In capsules 3 to 600 mg a day. There are more suggestions within his posts. I thought this info might help. I will post recipe and Teds chapter below, separately. As my phone will not copy paste. Janet

I think most people would benefit from taking transdermal vitamins & minerals. You can buy those as a patch, similar to a nicotine patch given to people who are trying to quit smoking.

The transdermal method of delivery has several advantages over oral delivery. 1. It goes directly into the bloodstream 2. It has better absorption rates (due to not having to go through the gastrointestinal pathway). 3. It is a form of time release since you should wear the patch for at least 8 hours. 4. You don't have to worry about interactions between supplements since that happens during digestion only.


PARACELSUS, ORH here, thanks for the suggestion as I have never taken vitamins this route, except B 12, CBD and a few others under the tongue. I do spray down with magnesium, do mineral baths, ozone saunas and essential oils on the bottom of my feet. All use lineaments for aches and pains, but I top that with DMSO to drive it deep. Your rectum can also bypass your digestive system. I only do coffee enemas and ozone insufflations there. While we are in the vicinity, let me tell you ATS. An Atlanta plumber bought down the lake a few years ago and said his wife was on his case to install a Tushy in their baths. I had no clue about this. I know of bidets, but not this. It is a retrofit to your commode, which we had installed. It is a no-brainer and the best thing since sliced bread. Just sorry that after 84 years, I finally have a clean fanny. Will solve some of the itchy butt problems EC folks often write about.

Hello Mr Don from Gold Coast,

If you google search "ALS herpes simplex" you'll find a number of articles on the possible connection. "Pub Med" has one such article. That article has connect with a specific type of ALS. You said that your wife did indeed have the virus long prior to the ALS onset.

The point is, if I were suffering from ALS I'd consider the possibility of a virus as either a trigger or the underlying cause of the ALS and would at least try to rid the body of the infection. I use a number of anti viruses, my favorite being Colloidal Silver; also Echinacea, tea tree oil... lots of "go to virus killers."

On the CS, I'd take orally three tablespoons daily for three months. I'd also do the CS as a nasal irrigation

I know your wife must be very frightened. Encourage her never, never to lose hope. Same for you, "Mr Don." This is a terrifying disease to combat and I'll be praying for you to have wisdom and strength through it all.

Your friend here in America,

Anupam: Ingredients need to be organic. Eat raw fruits and vegetables from Organic India. Make smoothies with a blender from the leaves and peels. Most of the nutrients are in the leaves and peels. For oil and protein eat soaked nuts and seeds raw. Keep fat below 5%/g of carbs. Take 1/2 saturated fat and 1/2 unsaturated. Get some omega 3's from plants. Make home brewed water kefir with whole sugars or/and whole flours, 60g carbs/quart. Put 4oz papaya, 1tsp papaya seeds, some chili, and 4oz pineapple in a blender with some water, grind up, and drink. Do this 4x/day. Include the peel, core, and stem.

Hello Anupam,

I see you ask Ted about ALS and I'm not Ted nor even close to his expertise but if you will allow me, I'll give you my own approach to ALS.

I believe there is evidence that ALS has at its root a viral infection in the spine, cousins to the Polio virus. The Polio virus is a "specialty" virus and in theory so is ALS. Cadaver studies were performed on ALS corpses and (as I can recall) about 80 percent of those had the virus in the horns of the spinal vertebra.

In theory, then if I suspected a spinal infection, I would use a 50/50 mix of DMSO (see Earth Clinic under Remedies) and Colloidal Silver (see Earth Clinic again under Remedies). I'd apply with a white cloth as a poultice to spinal column for thirty minutes three times a week. After a month if I'd improved at all, I'd continue for six months. I'd also drink CS daily, three tablespoons on empty stomach daily for six months to kill the virus in the rest of the body. The DMSO will carry the Silver atoms into the skin and DMSO is also an anti viral so it too will help.

This combo has worked for me for numerous "below skin" infections and, yes, it will penetrate bone. If the combo is applied to base of skull it will penetrate into the brain. If I thought I had any infection in brain I would try this combination three times a week for at least a month and judge results.

Your father is very far advanced; you said he could not walk or talk; so the approach is a long shot....but if this were me...I'd try anything at this time.

Hello Musibul,

I hope I spelled your name correctly....

but you ask a few questions on how I apply colloidal silver to myself. If I want to get CS into my spinal area I use a 50/50 mix of CS plus DMSO. The DMSO is a solvent and carrier. So the DMSO will penetrate my skin and spinal column carrying the CS with it.

I also will drink two tablespoons of CS daily to kill infections in the body.

And you also asked how to apply....a poultice is just the wet cloth laid onto the skin and let absorb for twenty minutes.

Use about two cups with a light white cloth for poultices. Enough to have the cloth very wet without being too drippy.

However you spell that ... and what ever a patoot is...

I do use store bought liniments. I don't use colloidal silver for relief of pain...but it could have that effect IF the pain were the secondary result of infection. I believe of course that CS is killing the infection. I have a liniment I bought at the old Feed and Seed store out in the country that seems to work well on inflammation issues... called Bigeloil. That has worked to reduce inflamation in a few cases.

I am a big fan of poultices for both pulling out toxins and putting in wanted ingredients. I use charcoal for the former and DMSO for the latter.

HI U DAVE, , , , , , , , , , , yep, you using liniment that was concocted for horses. I found it on the internet.

Dr. Jacobs , the father of DMSO, says that horses don't know about double blind studies so if they feel good then they run, otherwise, they don't. Our medical field is so stupid , it's not funny any longer.

I congratulate you on your contribution to common folks health. I know you not suppose to call folks, common, but we got got a bunch in this country. I now think my job is to keep folks entertained so they will read and help themselves.

I'm pretty smart , but not in the league with you and others.

HI U DAVE, , , , , , , , , I have used this term all my life and really did not know what it meant . I have researched and it originally was a term of endearment and that's how I use it. Just like when I call you my buddy.

Of late, it means something else. I will stick to the old version and hope all think likewise. Lordy, how folks are revising our history!!!!!

My Canadian-born and raised mom used that word often. I never knew what it meant either, but it was always used as a term of endearment.

Hi Roger...Here is Ted from Bangkok's protocol for late stage ALS. ALS, according to Ted, appears to be caused by adenovirus. Here is the remedy that he used:

"There is a lot of things you can do. The most important is the mucus and toxins. N acetyl cysteine 4000 mg 6 times a day and taurine 1000 mg 4 times a day. This will remove toxins. Methylene blue 0.1% 20 drops morning lunch and dinner. Adenovirus can be protected with poly lysine 1000 mg 3 times a day to kill it.


The child was in late stage ALS and in coma when he was put on Ted's regimen. When the parents took him out of hospital the doctors gave the boy 24 hrs to live. but the boy came out of coma and improved.

You can read all about his treatment here:

So, for adults, Ted's protocol would be thus:

N-Acetyl Cysteine -- 4000 mgs 6 times a day

0.1% Methylene Blue -- 20 drops mixed with 1000 mgs vitamin C in a half glass of water -- take this morning, lunch and dinner.

Taurine and Lysine each at 1000 mgs 4 times a day. Take them together dissolved in or with water.

Other useful remedies from Ted wrt ALS:

Rubbing ACV or vinegar directly on the back of the neck with help to kill the virus in the neck and brain regions.

Use 2% Lugol's Iodine mixed 50%-50% with DMSO. Apply this topically once a day along the whole length of the backbone and neck. DMSO will help the iodine to penetrate the bone to help kill ALS virus hiding in the synovial fluids there. Povidone Iodine is well known to kill adenovirus through research so lugol's iodine will do the same. Povidone Iodine cannot be ingested or used internally -- which is why you must only use the lugols iodine form(which can be ingested or used internally). Colloidal silver + DMSO could also perhaps be used like this with similar beneficial effects.

Rubbing drops of clove oil + aloe vera oil along the whole length of the backbone and neck area will also help to chase out the virus from the synovial fluids in the bone into the blood where the immune system can more easily kill it.

Take Lithium Carbonate 1.5 to 5 mgs per day.

You can buy most of the above nutrients from the health shop or internet vendors. You can purchase Methylene Blue at any aqua-culture shop that deals with fish tanks and fish for display. Methylene Blue is used in aqua-culture to help kill bacteria and fungus on the fish. MB is normally sold at 2.3% strength so you may have to dilute it down to 0.1% strength for use as Ted advises.

Hi, Interested in starting the Lysine/Threonine regimen with my 59 year old friend with ALS. I haven't yet seen this question addresses, but my friend is NPO (nothing by mouth) and with a PEG tube. Can these be safely put into her PEG tube?

Dear Ted, thanks for your recent response informing me that Lithium and zinc are supplements needed to help stop the ALS progression. I could use some help in locating the lithium though.

Sarah: I'm not Ted and cannot offer any specific recommendations, BUT I just watched an ihealthtube video of Professor Garth Nicholson of the Institute of Molecular Medicine speaking of his successes treating degenerative and chronic diseases with Lipid Replacement Therapy (LRT). He mentioned only recently using LRT in degenerative neurological diseases with success.

Hello all! This question is for Ted

It's been a while since I posted, I have been busy with the care of my dad who is healing from als. He is being called the 'new' miracle man. Ted has been of major and effective assistance in this arena and my family and I continue to be grateful for his contributions. I wanted to ask Ted if he knew of any side effects of branch chained amino acids for someone like my dad who is not on any medications - except for acid reflux and constipation which are both PRN. He breathes room air (never been on oxygen) and continues to seek natural ways to help his muscles repair and rebuld themselves. What is your opinion on BCAA's positive and not-so positive?

Hi Angela -- Can you tell me what worked and didn't work with the treatment for your "new miracle man" father? :) My mother has been recently diagnosed with ALS. Thanks in advance!

Replied by Sara

Hi Angela,

Your posting gives me hope for my mom who has ALS. I have my mom on the Deanna Protocol and she is also on Rilutek. She is getting so much weaker in her arms. She has drop foot and has a hard time getting up. She also coughs alot and has trouble projecting her voice. Could you please tell me what regime worked for your dad? This site has useful information but it seems Ted has recommended slightly different doseages and supplements for everyone with ALS. So Ted if you read this, I would appreciate if you would be able to otherwise recommend a regime for my mom, my best friend.

Thank you very much, Sara

Hi Angela I hope you are well. How is your father? I hope he continues to improve. You are obviously an amazing daughter. My brother in law was diagnosed with MND two years ago and even though he is holding his own compared to some people with this condition he is now in a wheel chair. He gets bad muscle twitching when he eats high sugar foods. Just wondering can you give any advice? Cheers Marie
