Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s and motor neuron disease, is one of the most misunderstood mystery illnesses today. There is misinformation being spread about ALS and many incorrect diagnoses of this illness that are resulting in devastating consequences. If you or a loved one suffers with ALS, it’s important that you know there is hope. Healing is possible once you understand what’s really behind ALS.
Behind the ALS Label
The technical name of this disease in Greek means “without nourishment to muscles.” Although doctors have a label to give people, ALS is still a complete mystery illness to medical communities. In the conventional medical world you will likely hear ALS described as a motor neuron disease. This is almost true. Medical science and research don’t yet know that ALS is actually a viral inflammatory illness where viruses are feeding off toxic heavy metals in the system, and this can affect neurons. Usually a high level of aluminum is one of the metals present in the brain and other parts of the body.
If you’ve been given an ALS label, you likely have a variety of heavy metals in your system, including an abundance of aluminum. As I share in my book Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal, these toxic metals are the perfect fuel for viruses. In the case of ALS, there’s typically a severe viral infection of HHV-6 coupled with a few other herpes virus strains feeding on these metals. When symptoms increase in severity, and mild tingles and numbness turn into acute loss of muscle control, it’s often due to severe brain inflammation triggered by the viral infection.
If you find yourself in a wheelchair and doctors seem apprehensive about your chances of survival, it’s possible that your body is overrun with viruses. Once you reach this point, you can still turn your condition around. In this instance, it’s critical to work with a doctor or practitioner to create a healing protocol that incorporates foods and supplements that naturally fight viruses and draw heavy metals out of the body.
Medical communities are still tragically unaware of the true causes of people’s suffering when it comes to most neurological symptoms and conditions. A doctor may blame your genes or suggest that your body is attacking itself, but these trendy ideas are incorrect and damaging. I discuss this in-depth in Thyroid Healing.
A Reckless Diagnosis
ALS is a real illness, just like other chronic illnesses, but the damaging beliefs attached to the ALS label can destroy people’s health rather than help them understand that they’re fully capable of healing.
Being handed an ALS label today can have a similar effect on someone as the effect a HIV/AIDS diagnosis had on people during the 1980s AIDS crisis. This retrovirus was not the reason people were dying, but because a death sentence was so strongly associated with this diagnosis, people quickly fell into a hopeless, despairing headspace that greatly affected their overall health. Many of the people who had this virtually benign retrovirus were also suffering from terrible varieties of streptococcus that triggered pneumatic problems; a host of herpes viruses, including HHV-7, HHV-8, HHV-9, and the undiscovered varieties I brought to light, including HHV-10, HHV-11, and HHV-12; and/or suffered from exposure to pollutants, toxins, drugs, and toxic heavy metals.
For a number of reasons other than the retrovirus, people were experiencing the complete breakdown of their immune systems. When people were given an HIV/AIDS diagnosis in the early to mid 80s, they did not even consider the possibility that they could survive, and this led many people to quickly give up and fall apart mentally and physically. The reason it appears as though very few people are dying from HIV anymore is because the sources perpetuating this damaging falsehood quieted. This is allowing people’s immune systems to strengthen and stay fortified.
An ALS diagnosis seems to affect people similarly, which is why I often refer to it as a “reckless diagnosis.” It’s important to understand the weight a diagnosis can have, and how beliefs about a diagnosis can lead to immense fear or panic. If a person has severe viral infections, their condition may worsen because of these emotional responses.
In the medical world, diagnosing ALS is basically a guessing game. The doctor will likely observe the patient struggling with more and more symptoms as the prescribed immunosuppressive drugs, steroids, or antibiotics fail to improve the patient’s condition. If the patient continues to steadily decline, the doctor may give the patient a diagnosis of ALS (or another neurological disease).
The current neurological testing doctors use to identify ALS is far from error-free and rarely offers information that doctors can use with complete certainty. Numerous neurologists I’ve spoken with have agreed with me on this issue. They’ve mentioned multiple cases where perfectly healthy patients have had worrisome results show up on neurological tests. Yet the patient had never struggled with the suggested issues and these issues never arose as time progressed. You may still want to have neurological testing done, but be aware of the tests’ potential inaccuracies.
Men and Women
Men are diagnosed with ALS a little more frequently than women. Although men have often been considered stronger than women in various ways throughout history, when it comes to battling illness, women have consistently demonstrated a stronger will to live than their male counterparts.
Women possess a mighty will to survive, grow stronger, and bear the elements. This fiery will helps women bear the weight of a diagnosis as well as symptoms and conditions better than most men. In many cases, men quickly decline after being handed diagnoses that cause them to feel unwell or useless for a prolonged period of time. This is especially true in cases where there is a sense of hopelessness already attached to the label, such as ALS.
Overcoming an ALS Diagnosis
James, 47, a client I worked with years ago, started noticing stiffness in his hands, shoulders, and legs while working at his factory job. Then he started to experience muscle twitching and numbness. A neurologist diagnosed James with ALS based off his symptoms alone. This was a completely incorrect diagnosis. James was actually exhibiting symptoms of Guillain-Barré syndrome, another mystery condition. (I share the true cause of Guillain-Barré—which is unknown to medical communities—in Medical Medium).
Shortly after James was handed an ALS diagnosis, he began experiencing twitches. He sought out the opinion of two other specialists, who didn’t contradict the ALS diagnosis and who suggested that in about five to seven years his body would completely fall apart. This news left James in a constant state of stress and emotional turmoil. All of this exacerbated James’s symptoms, feeding his growing panic. Around this time, James’s wife, Julie, learned of me and sought out an appointment.
I relayed to them that James had a herpes virus, HHV-6 in his brain, as well as heavy metals, including high levels of aluminum and copper. After this assessment, the couple remarked that they must’ve come to the wrong place because James was diagnosed with ALS. I explained to James that he had merely been given a label for his mystery illness, not a true cause.
I explained to James and Julie that a viral inflammatory condition in James’ brain was responsible for his neurological problems. Not only was his body battling HHV-6, but it was fighting against two other herpes viruses as well. These viruses, which had invaded both his brain and spinal cord, were feeding off the high level of aluminum, as well as other heavy metals that were present in his system.
Spirit recommended James return to the factory he had been working at and ask for an exposure investigation. Upon investigation, it was discovered that aluminum oxide gas had been spewing out of a damaged ventilator pipe in the area James had been working. This aluminum dust and vapor, byproduct from aluminum work, had been silently poisoning the factory workers for months until Spirit made it known.
Once James no longer believed he was close to dying, his symptoms quickly improved. Part of his protocol was the heavy metal detox plan, which helped draw aluminum, copper, and mercury out of his body and brain. He also used natural antiviral supplements (for supplement recommendations and dosages, see Liver Rescue) to fight off HHV-6 and the other herpes viruses in his system.
Instead of suffering for five years until his body completely fell apart, like specialists had predicted, James fully healed and was able to embrace the life he’d been living prior to his illness.
Steps to Heal
Over the decades I’ve helped a number of other people completely reverse their ALS-labeled neurological symptoms. Below are some suggestions and recommendations that may help you begin your healing journey and live a full, vibrant life.
Glucose & Mineral Salts
If you’re suffering with a neurological symptom or condition, bringing ample glucose into your diet is critical. In order to heal, the central nervous system needs an abundance of the natural sugar found in fruits and carbohydrate-rich vegetables like potatoes and sweet potatoes.
High-fat, high-protein and low-carbohydrate diets are not preferable for anyone suffering with ALS, Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), or any other neurological symptoms or conditions. A diet filled with an abundance of natural glucose is critical in these cases. If you’re concerned about eating fruit, check out my chapter on Fruit Fear in Medical Medium.
Sweet potatoes and other carbohydrate-rich foods help build your muscle. This may come as a surprise, because many people incorrectly believe protein helps build muscle. In truth though, only two things help build muscle: consuming critical clean carbohydrates (read all about this in Liver Rescue) and actually using the muscles. Glucose builds muscle quickly. If you doubt this, picture the muscular, 300-pound apes at the zoo who snack on bananas and figs.
People with neurological conditions often don’t use their muscles as much as individuals who aren’t suffering with health issues. Some people are too sick to get out of bed, let alone walk around or exercise. In these instances, it’s vital to feed your muscles with glucose-filled carbohydrates to keep you from wasting away as you work to combat your neurological disease.
This is another reason to avoid high-protein or high-fat diets, such as ketogenic or paleo diets, while healing from a neurological condition. A low-carbohydrate diet can cause rapid wasting syndrome, which may be mistaken as ALS or worsening MS.
Instead, bring potatoes, fruits, and winter squashes into your meals and snacks. The abundance of lysine and the numerous amino acids found in all different varieties of potatoes can be especially powerful for maintaining or strengthening muscles. If you eat meat alongside your potatoes, the animal protein may prevent the potatoes from offering their many benefits to the muscles. To get the most benefit from healing foods, separate carbohydrate-heavy meals, such as a bowl of potatoes or fruit, from any animal protein.
If you increase the amount of fruit and starchy vegetables you bring into your diet, and greatly reduce your protein intake, you may be able to maintain and strengthen your muscles. Liver Rescue Mornings and the other healing guidance in Liver Rescue is critical.
Filling your diet with an abundance of fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens is critical.The antioxidants and phytochemicals found in these foods are vital for healing. Dive into Life-Changing Foods for healing food suggestions.
For high-quality supplement recommendations, check out my preferred supplements page.
If you’ve been given an ALS diagnosis, try your hardest to stay light hearted. ALS is not a death sentence. It’s something you’re fully capable of healing from and moving past. You now have the information and tools to eliminate herpes viruses and toxic heavy metals. My hope is that you can move forward with this life-changing knowledge, restored motivation, and a newfound faith in your body’s ability to heal.
