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.

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,

For ALS has anyone considered raising their pH to a Alkaline state using Baking Soda and mixing it with Coconut oil as Coconut oil has the ability to pass the blood Brain Barrier (Brain Food)
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.
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.
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.
ALS--Iodine tablets have improved my energy levels, lifted body temperature which runs low,helped my tired eyes and overall well being. I would add it to the list of 'musts' for ALS since I have been diagnosed with that 3.5 years ago. Also, Iodine is great for a natural heavy metal cleanse which goes hand in hand with so many health issues including candida, cancer.
The biggest thing with ALS is to stay away from medications like Baclofen. No medication will help ALS but rather will cause quicker deterioration of physical, mental and financial health!
Baking soda taken as prescribed on the box is excellent for skin issues that won't heal and are cancerous looking. Research electrolytes and you will see what essentials are needed for our body to function.
I am 54 and going strong!
I have been helping a friend with ALS/Lou Gehrig's through the treatment recommended starting with the Lysine and Threonine as foundation. The Threonine dramatically increased mucous production in my friend and her breathing, which was strong before, had suddenly become labored. I did some more research on the Threonine and discovered on the WebMD site's description of Threonine side effects stating:
"Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease): There is some concern that threonine might decrease lung function in patients with ALS. In one study, ALS patients taking 4 grams of threonine per day had significantly reduced lung function compared to patients who did not receive threonine..."
And this is exactly what we saw. With all the symptoms of ALS she showed, the reduced lung function has not yet been one of them. But the introduction of Threonine directly coincided with a dramatic affect on her breathing. She said it felt like an elephant sitting on her chest.
On the positive, she previously had a clenched feeling in her throat that was pinching and really wearing her down. Since taking the Threonine, this has noticably relaxed and made it much easier to bear. But the thick mucous increase and belabored breathing is a bit scary, especially since many ALS sufferers die from this aspect. We are stopping the Threonine in hopes that her breathing will return to normal. If it doesn't I may counteract it with arginine, but I know this supports the possible viral function that we are attacking with Lysine. So I want to be careful and take it one day at a time.
I just felt it important to share this experince in case it is of help to anyone else out there.

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.

Hi I'm glad and thankful for all the helpful information on your site. I have a question for Ted, about my friend. She is 43 years old and recently diagnosed with ALS. It's not genetic. She's been struggling end 2015, with traditional meds and she is been on a trial for placebo's to keep her lungs from falling out. She is in a stage that she can walk but only a few steps before she is tired. Her speech is slowing down but she can talk. She can't move her left arm and almost lost the movement in her hand. Her fingers curled up. I allready have a lot information about the kind of supplements and oils to use.
But in this specific case I would like to know how to start using natural remedies for slowing down or reverse ALS. I need to start with detoxing the body but how to proceed and do I use the lysine, threonine aspirin and methylene blue in her case? And where can I purchase the supplements? PLease Hep! Thank you very much, greetings from Belgium
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.
