My father was diagnosed with the worst type of ALS 09/2009. The specialist at Forbes-Norris Clinic in SF, CA gave him less than 3 months to live, he is still living.
He believes he is going to be a part of the ONE PERCENT that heals from this dis-ease and live to blog about it and empower others to heal themselves. We are all a family of great faith, it is how he and my mother raised us. My parents have created many miracles in their lifetime and are strong believers in self-healing. My sister, brother and I have moved home to help with his care. This came on him in May of 2008 and diagnoses as a stroke. By Sept of 2009 it was full blown. Everyone tells us we are a great family and that you can see that my father is well taken care of. We are ready for his next stage in healing. Perhaps you can be of some assistance. All the little hairs on my neck and arms stood up after reading your post.
I read your post dated 1/16/2010 regarding a patient with ALS in a coma and treating yourself as well.
My father went into the hospital 1/27/10 with respiratory distress, never used or needed oxygen and was put on ventilator at night (which he does not use because his breathing is really strong and steady.) A peg tube and trachea were inserted. He has lost most of his muscle in his arms, and torso. Lower body is still strong, but he is not walking nor standing. He can sit up, hold his head up for 15 minutes at a time. Has strong lungs, and strong cough. He is hydrated and receives Alkaline Water (KANGEN) on a daily basis now that he is home. My father has no diabetes, no heart disease, no high blood pressure/cholesterol nor breaking down of skin, outside of ALS he is very healthy. He is alert, full of life and unwavering spirit. He is 58 years young, 6'2 and weighs 145lbs. He spent 6 weeks in the hospital, 1.5 was in ICU, the rest in ACU. Initially he went in for Respiratory Distress. My dad is holding out for a natural remedy because he KNOWS he can heal from this. His motivation for healing is simple: LOVE My parents grew up together, and were high school sweethearts, and have been married for 37 years. Still in love as the day they met.
I want to know what you suggest we give him, in what amounts to assist him in his healing. These are some of the items in your post I found.
He is currently taking
Morphine SUL for pain as needed
Osmolite1.5 Cal 12oz/3x per day
Nystop anti-fungal powder for skin and privates as needed
Levaquin 500mg (antibiotic) 2hrs before eating
Zegerid 20mg-168mg powder packets for (to keep acid in his stomach from going up into his lungs)
Naphcon-A Eye drops as needed
Xopenex 1.25mg/3ml in a nebulizer as needed (currently at least 2x per day)
HE HATES the vent and refuses to use it. His breathing is even and stable and has a nurse (LVN) 16 hrs/day because of trach care & suctioning.
Anything you can share my family and I will be eternally grateful to receive. Blessings to you in ALL that you think say and do Ted
