Lou Gehrig’s Disease

0-556372697-lou1

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a deadly neurological disease. In layman’s terms, Lou Gehrig’s disease is basically a situation or condition (disease) the muscle cells atrophy or waste away. The disease was named after famed New York Yankees slugger, Lou Gehrig, who died of the insidious disease in 1941.

Causes and Risk Factors

The causes of ALS are still being researched. It’s been narrowed down to:

  • Gene mutation
  • Chemical imbalance
  • Suppressed or confused immune response system
  • Accumulation of protein in muscle cells

Risk factors are:

  • Genetics
  • Age-it’s most often found in people between the ages of 40 to 70 years old.
  • Gender-men are more likely to contract the disease than women.

Symptoms

When Lou Gehrig’s disease or ALS victims become disabled (due to paralysis of the “voluntary” muscles), they have difficulty speaking and swallowing and are very vulnerable to other diseases, particularly pneumonia.

Symptoms include:

  • Muscle twitching
  • Difficulty moving arms, hands and legs
  • Slurred speech
  • Difficulty swallowing

Healing Lou Gehrig’s Disease Naturally

There are options to help alleviate symptoms associated with Lou Gehrig’s Disease including yoga, vibrational healing (including chakra balancing), colon hydrotherapy, acupressure/acupuncture, chiropractic, and hyperbaric oxygen chamber, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy

Dietary Intervention

The diet must become alkaline in nature, which requires consumption of fresh, raw (and preferably organic) fruits and vegetables. A switch to a mostly raw foods diet would be best, or 75% raw and 25% vegan.

All meats, dairy products, refined grains and starches should be left alone (not eaten). Avoid processed foods, junk foods, and fast food.

Avoid unhealthy oils, especially when cooking. These oils include Canola, Corn, Soy, Peanut, and Vegetable. All hydrogenated oils should be avoided. Shortening or lard should be avoided. These insalubrious oils destroy the myelin sheath, the protective covering of the nerves, which cause impairment to nervous activity and thus impairs certain muscles that lead to twitching and shaking, in addition, to mild or full paralysis of certain parts of the body. The best oils to consume and/or to cook with include Olive, Grape seed, Macadamia, and Safflower.

The best water to drink on a daily basis is alkaline water. If alkaline water is not available or affordable for you, just make sure the water is filtered (copper and/or carbon filtration) and if possible, ozonated.

Herbs that counteract ‘sclerosis‘ are ideal in the healing process. So are herbs that repair the nerves.

Herbs that counteract ‘sclerosis’ include: Cayenne, Ginger, Cinnamon, Periwinkle, Butcher’s Broom, Manjistha, Chaparral, Goldenseal Root, and Comfrey Root to name a few.

Herbs that repair the nerves include Nerve Root (Lady’s Slipper), Kava Kava, Valerian Root, Cinnamon, Chamomile, Blue Vervain, and Passionflower to name a few.

Seaweeds such as Spirulina, Chlorella, Blue Green algae, Dulse, Kelp, Irish Moss, Iceland Moss, and Bladderwrac are very nutritious and help repair damaged cells, nerves, and muscle tissue.

Mono-atomic Gold (white powder) is also helpful for this condition due to its affect on the brain and nervous system.

    Q: While I know by experience that herbs can have a healing effect, You say that clearly, "Sarcoidosis affects the glands", the inner and outer skin, and the lymphatic system. Sarcoidosis is a degenerative disease, and is therefore due to improper diet. You don't mention at any stage that it is an auto immune disease. To say that diet alone can cause one's immune system to attack the body, and major organs (which you don't mention anywhere) seems very simplistic. I may be wrong, but I hope you are not just raising hopes for all the sufferers out there. My sister has sarcoidosis.

    A:

    Beloved, why would I want to in futile and falsely raise innocent people's hopes and create bad karma for myself? I'm not one of the unscrupulous Christian ministers who do such, Beloved. I'm a wise natural healer. I have no incentive in raising false hopes. Life is not joke nor is suffering! Sarcoidoisis is a PREVENTABLE and REVERSIBLE disease which means it is diet related. A disease is preventable because eating wrong foods can be prevented. A disease is reversible because poor diet is reversible. Research the medical term "degenerative disease" and you'll understand where I'm coming from. I'm not one to embrace auto-immune disease because when the body turns on itself that's not natural. The person did something to make their body attack itself. People invite disease, Ma'am via WRONG DIET, WRONG THOUGHTS, WRONG ACTIONS, etc. If she was born with sarcoidosis, she picked up in life, a life that she led pursuant to her own free will. I say again: YOU CAN heal from any disease! If you believe you can, you can. If you believe you can't, you can't! It IS that simple! Jesus (not that you may be a Christian, I'm just quoting) stated: If thou canst belive, all things are possible to him that believeth!

He was taking allergy shots once a week for a year. He is allergic to everything...grass, trees; dustmites, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs. He now drinks rice milk and I order food online at ener_g foods such as breads, cookies etc that are made without all the things he is allergic to. I want to boost his immune system to help fight this disease. He is on a strict diet and I would love you input on how to help him.

    A:

    Clearly he's toxic! Clean his body out and the problem will go away. Try CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Let him drink warm water and lemon juice (from fresh squeezed lemon) every day. Let him drink herbal tea of Mullein leaf and/or Eucalyptus. When he is bathing, drop in 6-8 drops of essential oil of Eucalyptus per bath and add 1 box of sea salt to every bath. Let him soak for 45 minutes or so. He can heal from this problem!

    Q: My husband has Sickle Cell Disease. What do you suggest for reversing his condition. Also, can any herbs be smoked? If the herbs are smoked, do they have the same healing effects compared to eating or drinking them?

    A:

    Please read our article "Sickle Cell Anemia and Crisis" on our site under "Articles." Everything you need to know is there, including herbs to take for the condition.

    Dherbs doesn't recommend the smoking of herbs. Some people smoke herbs, i.e. marijuana, hops, etc., but smoke has no place in the human body. Many people smoke marijuana and claim healing benefits. Strangely, they continue smoking marijuana after their so-called healing. I don't think marijuana heals because if it heals, why do people continue to smoke it? I think people just like the feeling of getting high.

    Q: I see also that you recommend a complete diet with these programs. I am guessing its a vegan diet right? I wanted to ask something on that is coconut milk and coconut oils ok for that? I personally had a very hard time trying to eat that many vegetables and many ph balance vegans seem to think fruits aren?t good either. I eat that many vegetables one it tears me up the next day and two I just cant consume enough calories that way. I can try and make up for it by eating things like almonds but I eat to many almonds I get the same problem the next day. Now coconut milk (unsweetened) and a digestive enzyme works for me for picking up extra calories.... but I hear very conflicting information about coconut and its saturated fat content. Is it ok to use daily as a part of the diet for cleansing? And your oxy-drops are those the same as the drop for ph balancing water?? Or is it something different? I am wanting to start lifting weights as I need to put on some muscle and I?m wondering if its something that would be beneficial in combating muscle soreness by increased oxygen in the body.

    A:

    The diet we recommend is vegan-based, and RAW FOODS. Fresh fruits, vegetables, raw nuts and seeds are ideal.

    Coconut Milk and Coconut Oil are excellent products to have in your diet. The healthy fats will keep you fuller.

    Oxy-Drops can help balance your electrolytes that need to be replenished after a workout in order to keep your body performing efficiently.

    Q: There seems to be a cure or a treatment for everything but kidney disease and trust me I have been looking since 1997 when I was diagnosed with focal glomerulosclerosis. I have been on dialysis for a year and a half now. My Dr told me that once your filters in your kidneys are damaged there is no way the can be replenished. That is what happened to me. The scare tissue in my kidney are so severe that they do not filter my blood properly. I have talked to other herbologist and doctors and the only thing they can recommend is transplant. I believe that God put everything we need to stay healthy on this planet. We just have to find what we need. I read on your web site that your herbs can cure kidney disease. I hope it can cure mine. What type of success have you had in getting patients off of dialysis and if you have how long did it take and what did they have to do?

    A:

    To help treat Kidney-Bladder failure/problems, detox your body with Full Body Cleanse. After the cleanse, your daily regimen should consist of Kidney-Bladder-Adrenal formula (3 capsules, 5 times per day) and the Dherbs Kidney Tea (1-2 cups per day). These formulas can help increase healing in your kidneys so that they can function properly.

    Q: Good Day to you. July 07, I was diagnosed with having the auto-immune disease Myasthenia Gravis. Since then I have had several hospital stays, including a surgery to remove my Thymus Gland...(beleif that this was one cause)and taking many medications, one of which suppresses my immune system, the others include steroids which have terrible side effects...etc. My latest hospital stay, I was placed on the vent and intubated, because of the Myasthenia and an infection that my body couldn't fight off (suppressed immune system) that further complicated the MG restricting my respiratory system. That was a truly scary and painful experience. I am only 32 and I have been searching for a more natural approach to eradicating this Dis-Ease of the body which they say there is no cure. My thoughts are, they are not looking for cures...if they did, that would mean the pharmaceutical companies no longer have reason to continue to poison and make dependent on them those whom they make the medications...which eventually cause other problems...meaning they don't make money if cures are found. The continuous pill taking and side effects are causing more problems than the original diagnosis. Please let me know if any of your products are a possible answer to my prayers. I am desperately seeking...in addition to keeping the faith and staying strong in prayer, a more natural approach to dealing with MG and taking care of my body, the temple of which the creator has kept alive in spite of this potentially dangerous ailment. Thank you in advance for your time.

    A:

    You didn't have to have your thymus gland removed. This gland is the seat of the immune system so the doctors removed your natural defense and then gave you toxins which are really exacerbating your situation. I recommend that you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and after performing, take a daily regimen of RAINFOREST TONIC, IMMUNE BOOSTER EXTRACT, KHEMETIAN GOLD, ACTIVATED CHARCOAL and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. You can overcome your present health crisis! Just stay strong, focused (on your healing), and POSITIVE! Every problem including with health is an opportunity!!!!!!

    Q: I have been diagnosed with Pityriasis Rosea which is a skin disease. The dermatologist can't tell me what causes this disease and has prescribed a topical steroid. I don't believe in taking all types of drugs when they can't tell me what causes this disease. Can you recommend anything since I refuse to take the steroids? Thanks for your help!

    A:

    Rosacea is caused by parasites and is considered a form of acne. I suggest you first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX, then perfomr the PARASITE AND WORM CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, and follow this up with the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Use only good soaps like Kiss My Face and Grandpa Pine Tar soap. Use Bentonite Clay (available at health food stores) 2-3 times a week. Always apply OZ OIL to your face after washing and/or claying it. Buy a facial steamer and steam your face every day (c. 15-30 minutes).
