AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS
Another name for this condition is Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS is a relatively uncommon neuromuscular condition that affects mainly the motor nerves of the body with the exception of the nerves going to the eyes. It causes progressive weakening of the major muscles of the body. This eventually causes an inability to swallow and problems breathing.
Conventional medical care has little to offer those with ALS other than palliative and supportive care.
MINERAL TESTING RESEARCH ON ALS
Manganese. Several cases of ALS we have worked with all reveal manganese toxicity as a cause and perhaps the cause of the condition.
Manganese is a trace mineral. Healthful compounds of manganese are required for life and these are found in some foods. All food today, however, is low in these forms of manganese.
However, toxic forms of manganese have an affinity for the brain and nervous system and settle there, causing damage to neurons and perhaps to other structures in the brain.
DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS AND ALS
We have not worked with many cases of ALS, and those we have worked with have not stayed with the program long enough to do a full evaluation of the results.
However, we know that a development program can slow the progression of the condition. This occurs by helping to eliminate toxic manganese from the body, by balancing and strengthening the nervous system and by nourishing and detoxifying all parts of the body.
This is a group of about 30 uncommon degenerative health conditions characterized by progressive weakening of the skeletal muscles. Different forms of the condition affect different muscles and some are more severe than others.
Conventional medical science considers the cause of muscular dystrophy to be genetic mutations.
Hair mineral research indicates that mercury, lead and/or manganese toxicity are involved in the cause of muscular dystrophy. The presence of excessive amounts of these metals in the body can cause disruption of genetic expression and can also interfere directly with muscle health.
DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS FOR MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY
We have not worked with many cases of muscular dystrophy. However, in a recent case, after about two months on a development program, the young man is feeling stronger. This is too soon to evaluate the longer-term effects of a development program, and we will continue to monitor his progress.
