Treating Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) By
Using Amyotrophy Convalescence Pill Series Medicine

1. The GeneralAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a degenerative disease of the nervous system, affecting the brain cells (motor neurons) that carry impulses from the brain and spinal cord to the muscles. This disorder generally affects both upper and lower motor neurons resulting in muscular weakness and the progressive wasting of muscles that have lost their nerve supply. Degeneration of these neurons causes muscle weakness, and muscle loss, usually starting in the hands and arms and then spreading to other parts of the body. Difficulty with speaking, swallowing, and breathing ensues, and death usually follows within 3 to 5 years. Onset commonly occurs between the ages of 35 and 65, slightly more frequently in men than in women. ALS is also called Lou Gehrig's disease after the baseball star who died of it. There are a number of different forms of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and other motor neuron diseases with similar symptoms.

Video: What is ALS?

The first signs of ALS are often arm and leg weakness, muscle wasting and faint muscle rippling. These symptoms occur because muscles are no longer receiving the nutrient signals they need for growth and maintenance -- a result of motor neurons dying. ALS nerve degeneration may also cause muscle cramps and vague pains, or problems with speech and swallowing. Some people with the disease may lose some control over their emotional responses. They may laugh or cry much more easily than in the past. Eventually, all voluntary muscle action is affected.

These symptoms occur because muscles are no longer receiving the nutrient signals they need for growth and maintenance -- a result of motor neurons dying. ALS nerve degeneration may also cause muscle cramps and vague pains, or problems with speech and swallowing. Some people with the disease may lose some control over their emotional responses. They may laugh or cry much more easily than in the past. Eventually, all voluntary muscle action is affected.

3. What Causes ALS?The exact cause of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is unknown. Allergic responses, infectious and/or viral agents have been proposed as possible causes of this disorder, but none has been proven. Approximately 5 to 10 percent of all cases of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis are hereditary.

For most people with ALS, the vast majority of their children are not at any greater risk to develop this disease than the general population. This type of ALS is often called "sporadic ALS" due to its unpredictable nature. ALS researchers have found no difference between the symptoms and disease progression in the sporadic and genetic forms of ALS. Therefore, since the genetic and acquired forms of ALS appear to be similar, an understanding of the cause of the genetic form could lead to treatment for all forms of the disease.

4. How ALS is diagnosed?To determine if you have ALS, your doctor will perform an evaluation that includes a physical exam, medical history, lab tests such as blood and urine tests, and imaging tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain and spinal cord.
Electromyography (EMG) may be used to test the health of your muscles and the nerves controlling your muscles. This test is very sensitive in detecting lower motor neuron disease.

There are no standard laboratory tests for upper motor neuron disease. But certain signs may be interpreted by your doctor as signs of ALS such as:

  1 Diminished fine motor coordination
  2 Babinski's reflex, an unusual flexing of the toes that signals damaged nerve paths
  3 Muscle cramps, which can be painful, and twitching
  4 Spasticity, a specific type of stiffness that causes jerky, hard to control movements

5. Treatment by Western Medicine

  1 Riluzole
At present, Riluzole is the only drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of ALS. It is also the only drug shown to extend the survival of ALS patients. Although the exact cause of ALS is unknown, glutamic acid, the primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, may play a major role in disease etiology.
  • Sanofi
    Sanofi is a nonpeptide compound which possesses neurotrophin-like activity at nanomolar concentrations in vitro, and after administration of low oral doses in vivo. The compound reduces the histological, neurochemical and functional deficits produced in widely divergent models of experimental neurodegeneration.
  3 Myotrophin
A recombinant human insulin-like growth factor-I (rhIGF-I). Myotrophin is a man-made form of the natural protein insulin-like growth factor-I. This protein is important for normal human growth and development. Studies have shown the drug to slow down the progression on ALS symptoms.
  4 Vitamins
Many investigators believe that nerve cells may die as a result of oxidation injury. Although there have been no proven benefits to anti-oxidant therapy, interest has been somewhat renewed since the discovery of "the ALS gene,"
  5 Creatine
An over-the-counter supplement popular as a muscle builder among athletes is also available for treating Lou Gehrig's disease.

9. Combination Treatment: Qigong Practice

9-1. Mechanism
Qigong, an ancient science and art of health, is a traditional form of Chinese energy excise and healing art for the body, mind, and spirit. Qigong is for establishing balance in and for helping to heal people who are struggling with chronic degenerative conditions such as paralysis, cancer, asthma, cardiovascular and so on.

Qigong practice for ALS treatmentPeople will ask us what the mechanism of qigong is. Generally speaking, like in a rice field, western medicine always have the trend of using all their means to kill qigong practicethe weeds. But in the meantime the rice shoots incur damage, more or less. Most patients know what the results is when they receive radiotherapy and chemotherapy. But for qigong practice, at beginning it will directly strengthen patients immune system as well as activate inner energy system. In a word, it seeks to harmonize the relationship of all internal organs rahter than distinguish which is friend and which is enemy. How to achieve such aim, you may ask? For a tree, at the very beginning there is no division of which is normal and which is abnormal for it stays at initiative stage of the very root. But later different branches develop into various forms, and good, bad, long, short, etc. come into being. By adopting special means we can reverse the process of growth and take the course of sailing against the life current to return back to the very beginning. Once we reach that state there should be no any "branches" possibly existing to wield effects upon our physical existence. Qigong is just the method of how to take the reversing course for the health well being, physically and mentally.

As like to let the rice shoots get stronger and stronger, the weeds will have less and less effects upon the rice shoots. As the process continues, it is sure someday the weeds will no longer have effect upon the rice shoots. Later the time will come of the rice shoots overpowering weeds. If patients can properly proceed with the practice, qigong can bring them much more than they could expect, especially the serene happiness common people could never have chance to experience throughout their life time. Qigong is the study of practice rather than just a theory. Here we like to offer free Qigong course to all patients.
