Protein Supplements for ALS
Hi Ted, This is my first time ever writing to someone about my brother's ALS. He was diagnosed April, 2013 but the doctor felt he had ALS for at least a year. He is wheel chair bound and cannot use his arms (he can move his arms a little and he can move hands and fingers). He is able to eat and he is also receiving supplements through his G-tube. He can still speak, however, his voice is getting weaker and softer. He feels he is progressing. He is currently taking the following:
Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Multivitamin, CoQ10, aspirin, magnesium, inosine , lisinopril, lipitor, Rilizole, Vitamin D, Clonidine, lysine 1/2 teas/6xdaily, threorine 1/4 teas/6x daily, glutamine 1/2teas/6x daily, humic/fulvic acid 2 tablespoons/day, clove oil applied to neck, spine,hands, arms and feet/4 times daily. He drinks alkaline water and maintaing ph level 7.25.
Please let us know if you have any suggestions. We would really appreciate your advice.
