ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is considered to be a fatal disease, and the average survival is 3 years from the diagnosis. However, traditional medicine offers a solution to those suffering from this diesease. Read this amazing story of a man who reversed his symptoms by drinking coconut oil only.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as ‘Lou Gehrig’s Disease,’ or motor neuron disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
This disease was the cause of death of a Yankee captain who died in 1941 when he was 38, and it was just 2 years after he had been diagnosed, at the very beginning of his career.
This disease is characterized by muscle spasticity, rapid progressive weakness caused by the muscle atrophy, difficulties in speaking, swallowing, and breathing.Statistics says that ALS is the most common of the five motor neuron diseases.
Motor neurons go from the brain to the spinal cord and continue to the muscles in the body. In ASL the progressive degeneration of the motor neurons eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the brain loses its ability to initiate and control muscle movements.
When the voluntary muscle action is progressively affected, the patients diagnosed with this disease become totally paralyzed in the later stages. “A-myo-trophic” has its roots in the Greek language. “A” stands for no or negative, “Myo” means muscle, and “Trophic” is the Greek word for nourishment, which equals to No muscle nourishment.
Patients diagnosed with ASL, Alzheimers, dementia, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s experience brain cell death to some degree. This comes to the insuline activity of stopping the brain cells from receiving glucose, which is their main energy source. And the cells die without a powerful source of energy.
At this point coconut has its five minutes of fame. It has been shown to play a vital role in such treatments. This oil contains medium chain tri-glycerides (MCT), which the liver later processes and metabolizes into ketones. Ketones go through the blood barrier and provide alternative fuel for the brain cells.
Butch Machlan is an American and today he lives in Mexico City. He was diagnosed with ALS in 2008. The first symptoms showed in 2007, which made him suspect that he could possibly have the same disease as his mother, who died after suffering for 8 years.
