(Warning: The drugs employed in the protocol described below have potential side effects. Therefore, I suggest the support of a medical doctor while following the protocol.)
I will keep the story as short as possible. The information presented in this document will probably save 100s of thousands of ALS patient from dying, and will save millions of them in the future. The protocol explained here should halt disease progressions for the majority of the patients. Don’t be a coward and try it, or keep declining and die in vain, it is totally up to you at this point.
The improvements you will notice will be as follows, usually in this order:
- Reduction in spasticity and muscle stiffness.
- Reduction in fasciculations.
- Faster and easier movements in general.
- Major reduction in serum creatine kinase (CK).
- Improved breathing, swallowing, speaking, walking, eye movements, all sorts of motor activity will get better in time.
Now is the protocol itself:
- I.M. (intramuscular) injection of 8 mg Dexamethasone every morning. If I.M. is unavailable, oral Dexamethasone works just fine, but usually with more pronounced side effects.
- Testosterone injections to keep your testosterone levels near the upper limits.
- 150 mg Imuran a day. This will help you taper your Dexamethasone dose in the future.
- Insulin shots after each meal, depending on the glucose levels. The physiological effects of insulin on ALS patients is unbelievable (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin#Physiological_effects).
- Feel free to take supplements. I recommend taking calcium, magnesium, vitamins (A, B, C, D, E, B12, K2), ubiquinol, pqq, licorice root, cbd oil, omega 3, resveratrol.
- I recommend a gluten-free diet.
- Exercise as much as possible.
Some Additional Information About the Meds
- In the first week, you may skip testosterone and Imuran and supplements. At the end of the week, you will know whether you are responding or not. If you are responding, you continue the protocol.
- The reasons why I prefer Dexamethasone over Prednisone are that it is more potent, has zero mineralcorticoid effect, and your body gets just 8mg drug (equivalent to 40mg prednisone). You can start tapering after two weeks. Do not taper more than 0.5 mg every week. Taper down to 2 mg.
- The reasons why I prefered Imuran over other immunesuppression are that it is both very well tested, used for many autoimmune conditions (including M.S.) and it is much cheaper than similar drugs.
- Testosterone injections are used to push your protein synthesis to its limits. If you are a woman, or already have high serum testosterone, you may not need testosterone shots at all. Please consult your doctor about this.
- Insulin is my latest addition to the protocol. When you use corticosteroids, there is usually no way for your glucose level to be in the normal range, therefore you need to get extra medications. Since I started insulin shots, my fasciculations literally stopped. Please read the above article about insulin for further detail.
