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.
TO MR TED, I am treating a case ALS presently and I found at many sites on the web the coconut oil ( or MCT OIL) are very helpfull with many positives results. You write on your pages to do not us ANY OIL ??
What do you think about theses very good results and are you encouraged to use it ?? Your opinion will be very appreciated.
Also from all informations you put on yours pages in regard with the colitis ulcerous , please be informed I treated 4 cases with 100% success without any recidive. Thank a lot to you.
Waiting yours comments,

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 Protocol..no 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.
Dietary Changes, Supplements
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.

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.
Better But With Side Effects
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
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!
Hello Ted, I am a 53 y/o woman that was diagnosed with ALS in 2018. I have lost use of my hands and have muscle atrophy in both hands and shoulders. My gate is now extremely shuffled. I also suffer from muscular twitching upper and lower body. My speech is slurred and I also have dysphagia when attempting to consume meals. My labs have revealed that my metal toxicity in my blood is extremely high. I have tried an abundant of supplements however nothing appears to be helping my symptoms. Is there anything that you can recommend.

Has any with ALS followed Ted's protocols for ALS? If so, what level of success? Thanks, Steve
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?

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?
