What is ALS?
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as motor neuron disease or Lou Gehrig's disease, is a specific disease that causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles. Some also use the term motor neuron disease for a group of conditions of which ALS is the most common.
OUR APPROACH TO ALS
If you have been diagnosed with ALS, you have probably been advised to get your affairs in order - meaning you'd be expected to prepare for the worst. See how our patients feel when they're treated here:
How does our treatment work?
First of all, It's very important to understand, this program is designed to improve your mobility, strength, and quality of life, but it's not a cure for the disease. Our objective is to neutralize the progression and then build on that to improve on what is important for you. This is the reason why this program is different for every person since you determine what's important for your quality of life.
Neuro-muscular conditions require three areas of treatment focus:
(1) providing nutrition to the muscles;
(2) providing energy to the cells, neurons, and their mitochondria;
(3) adding signalers to improve neuron survivability and reduce neuron death.
Our treatment protocol runs for an entire week, starting on Monday and going through to Friday. Many of our patients stay for two or three weeks.
Our first day consists of a health discovery meeting where we identify and prioritize the rest of the week’s protocol and personalize it to your specific needs. Treatments to follow based on your symptoms.
