Hi Ted,
My mother was diagnosed today with ALS. She is looking at it as a death sentence. So far it is affecting her feet and legs only, but not her upper body. She can still walk but with increasing difficulty. She is a heavy smoker and is 65 years old. She also takes Celebrex for arthritis pain. What can I give her to stop the progression or even reverse the disease, if that's possible. I appreciate your time. Thank you for what you do. Bless you. Beverly

Hello Ted,

I know that you are bombarded with requests for help. Please accept my sincere appreciation in advance for your help. My mother either has an old Lyme infection or ALS. The doctor is leaning heavily toward ALS. It is isolated in her legs and feet right now, although she can still walk, it is a challenge for her. The symptoms started after having foot surgery a little over a year ago to repair a fallen arch. She states that her feet are always very cold and feel like bricks. She had a spinal tap today so they can test for sure whether she has Lyme Disease. I read your 10/14/10 post on Earth Clinic. I am nervous giving her these supplements as I don't have enough knowledge. Can she take the clove oil, methylene blue, lysine, glutamine, threonine and trytophan while she is taking vitamin supplements?

She is currently taking every day :
2 Vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol) 1000 IU

2 Multi-vitamins w/ co-enzyme B vitamins
2 Calcium AEP that contain: Calcium (elemental from Calcium 2 Amino Ethanol Phosphate Cal2-AEP) 200mg

Amino Ethanol Phosphate1800 mg

200mg R-Alpha Lipoic Acid
2 Vitamin E that contain: -alpha tocopherol (from oryza oil) 31 IU

D-alpha tocotrienol (from oryza oil) 15mg
D-gamma tocotrienol (from oryza oil) 19mg
D-delta tocotrienol, d-gamma tocopherol,

D-beta tocopherol & d-delta tocopherol 6mg

(from oryza oil)

2000mg Vitamin C
2 Daily Balancer that contain: &n bsp;
Chlorella (Chlorella regularis)(algae) 500mg
Milk Thistle Extract 300 mg *
(minimum 80% Silybin)(seed)

Dandelion Root Extract (4:1) 150 mg *
R-Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 mg *
Ornithine Alpha Ketoglutarate 100 mg *
Glycine 100 mg *
Taurine 100 mg *
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) 100 mg *
L-Carnosine 20 mg *
Trans-Resveratrol (from Polygonum 4 mg *

Cuspidatum) (root)

Ted, what kind of medical practitioner are you, and how do I find one like you here in Pennsylvania?
Thank you!!! Beverly

Dear Beverly:

A few of your supplements may cause ALS to become worse. One is the supplements that have calcium in it, such as Calcium AEP, or supplements that have calcium as a fillers. The 2 amino ethanol phosphate may actually be quite harmful in causing weakening of muscle control. Vitamin D3 is useless, if no magnesium is given, and then the calcium increase in the blood tend to support viral growth, namely ALS virus, adenovirus. It offers these viral a shield of protection against white blood cell invasion. Ornithine keto glutarate, and other aminos that promote nitric oxide tends to promote viral growth in particular is the arginine, but ornithine isn't helpful either. While N acetyl Cystein is indeed useful, the effervescent kind, they tend to add aspartame, unlabeled, and these are excitotoxins and it kills the motor neuron.

The key supplements if you don't want to use anything else will be the lysine, glutamine, and threonine at the very least. Clove oil is essential in ALS, used when applying small amounts to the base of the neck in small amount without the use of carrier oils. Certain carrier oils tend to promote viral growth.

Lysine is taken at 1000 mg about hourly dose for 8 hours, and every two hours thereafter. Once they go to sleep, which is 8 hours, viral growth always come back, and hence clove oil is applied during sleep every two hours, at least for the first three critical days needed to stop viral growth advancement. It actually takes two. On the second day we repeat the lysine supplements again and on the third day the dose may be reduced to every 4 hours is fine at 1000 mg.

As for the glutamine, threonine, those are taken at the same time with the lysine, but the dose for glutamine is 1000 mg, and threonine at 500 mg. As far as tryptophan, the dose is smaller still and is taken perhaps once a day or twice to prevent a deficiency, such 250 mg.

As far a methylene blue, this maybe skipped if the patient is not too weak, but if in a coma state, or comatose state then methylene blue, hydrochloric acid, and clove oil is absolutely essential to get them out of the coma. I have gotten at least two people out of a coma this way. The biggest single mistake in ALS that recently died, was that the hospital gave the women 50 cc of vegetable oils. It should be noted that vegetable oil DAMAGES THE LIVER and must be avoided, or if the liver stops functioning, then the digestive system and everything else just stops working and maybe dead within the next 4 weeks. It won't kill the person then and there, it kills them slowly. No vegetable oils and NO SUPPLEMENTS THAT CONTAIN OILS and also NO CALCIUM.

As far as glycine, taurine and GABA, these are needed to contain the problem to prevent further damage of the nerves, which are aspartate and other excitotoxins that does damage the motor neuron nerves. Humic acid is one of my supplements I used to reduce these excitotoxins.

Most of people who are like me, are actually my students, but they all live in Thailand, one is a British trained medical doctor, and a few others are yoga instructors, and a Canadian alternative healing person (who is eager to travel all over the world to treat people, but his services is not free - you have to pay for his airline tickets and other expenses).

The only alternative healers that has the similar system of knowledge closest to the U.S., usually based on many similar clinical observations like me, such as calcium and oils are bad for you, is the Gerson Clinic, based in Tijuana, Mexico. It appears that I have no students who live in the U.S., at all.
