I do not have ALS, but am a member of the Daily Strength community. I have both Polymyositis and Lupus. However, I heard a report on ALS yesterday and thought I would share it with you, in case it might help someone here. It's called the Deanna Protocol, and was developed by a doctor whose daughter was diagnosed with ALS at age 23 (if I remember correctly). I don't mean to be intrusive. Please forgive me if you think I'm out of line. I just wanted to be a possible help. This link includes a video interviewing a man with ALS, as well as the doctor who developed this and his daughter (Deanna). My prayer is that it might be a help to someone.
