Hang in There

I'm having trouble focusing on my research. Someone very close to me is dying from ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig's or motor neuron disease. There are no known cures at this time, although there has been some progress lately in identifying the physiological causes. I am very depressed and I need to take some time off. I'll be back soon when I feel better. Sorry.

I think of a sign I used to see on a house on the road into London: Take Courage.

Hey Louis,

Just a heads up, hope you're doing ok.

ToB,

Thanks for the uplifting comment.

jeanpaul,

Thank you for writing. I'm currently taking care of my wife who's paralyzed from the waist down with ALS. We were hoping that the progression of the disease would stop there but recently she took a turn for the worse. I've been busy researching possible treatments all over the web. Lately, there's been a little excitement in the ALS community. It turned out that an IV-administered sodium chlorite formula called NP001 is showing some success in stopping progression and even reversing some of the symptoms in some patients during a double-blind trial conducted by a company called Neuraltus. This is great news but since ALS kills its victims so quickly, most of the afflicted will never be see NP001 in their lifetimes. It takes years to get FDA approval for this sort of thing.

Some ALS sufferers have decided to do something about the situation by making their own diluted sodium chlorite solution and medicate themselves in the privacy of their own homes. There are side effects, of course, since sodium chlorite is a bleach-like oxidizer used as a disinfectant in industry. The good news is that many who are taking part in the experiment are reporting improvements.

To make a long story short, my wife started taking sodium chlorite last week and I'm happy to report that she is already seeing some improvements in her breathing and voice control.

Needless to say, I'm currently in no mood for blogging or experimenting with Rebel Speech. But I shall return as soon as my wife's condition significantly improves. Stay tuned.

Louis,

May God and scence save your wife.

frog_tail,

Thank you. God is all about science and knowledge. My belief, as a Christian, is that everything that was made was made through wisdom and understanding. So-called miracles are not about magic and hocus-pocus. They are the result of superior science and know-how.

Hi Louis,

Perhaps you would also consider H202 treatment.

I believe that nature itself is supernatural.
