Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS/Lou Ghlehrig’s disease) About 5600 diagnosed in the US each year, 2 per 100,000. 30,000 people may have ALS at any given time. Rapidly degenerative neuromuscular disease. Effects the nervous system by slowly destroying the motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord that affect control and movement of the body.
- Three types of ALS Famillial Sporadic Guamanian III. Common causes of ALS Heavy metal toxicity Head and neck trauma Genetic predisposition Low levels of magnesium and calcium Antioxidant deficiency including glutathione Depletion of essential fatty acids Low levels of vitamin d and vitamin B12 in the body Exposure to toxins including pesticides BCCP Lyme Candida
- Mitochondrial Dysfunction Mitochondria generate power to parts of all cells and brain tissue…cellular energy. In ALS they stop functioning properly. When cells die, surrounding cells work harder, creating lactate, which causes cells and nerve tissues to die.
- Glutamate toxicity Neurotransmitter in the brain. Responsible for about 75% of brain and nerve function. In ALS patients there is a higher level of glutamate in the space between the cells. The extra may accelerate the motor neurons to function beyond their capacity.
- Oxidative stress
- Diet and nutrition Remove all toxins, sugars, processed foods, hydrogenated oils and preservatives.
