Clinical Information For the Treatment Of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

What Is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)?


Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) - Basics

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a type of motor neuron disease, which degenerates and eventually kills the nerve cells that control voluntary movement of the muscles. Also called Lou Gehrig's Disease, ALS occurs when the motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord (called upper and lower neurons, respectively) weaken and eventually become unable to transmit messages to the muscles, which controls their function. The muscles progressively weaken, leading to atrophy and involuntary twitches.

Below you will find alternative and natural treatment options including those from a Chinese Medicine perspective for ALS.
