Protein Recycling Pathway Mutated in ALS

New research has revealed the presence of the same mutation in sporadic, hereditary and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and the version that attacks the brain. The protein that normally recycles proteins in neurons of the brain and spinal cord which keep the cells healthy is mutated so it cannot degrade the damaged neuronal proteins which are recycled and used to synthesize new, functional proteins. These abnormal proteins accumulate and damage the neurons in this debilitating and fatal neurodegenerative disease. Researchers are very excited about this discovery which gives them an opportunity to develop drugs that target this pathway in ALS patients and may provide insight into other neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.

There is HOPE!!! This research is wonderful! It was also found via research and trials for Alzheimer's disease that there is a treatment which may also help ALS. The treatment is provided in the book The Dynamite Story of Alzheimer's Recoveries. It is a great read with a simple to follow treatment plan.

(MUST READ: COPD TREATMENT)

I am Joan Barragan from Portland, Oregon, USA. I was diagnosed of COPD/Emphysema in Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in 2014. In August 2016 my condition worsened and my doctor adviced me for Lung volume reduction surgery to remove part of my lungs, making room for the rest of the lung to work better, considering the risk involved i was scared and i resorted online for help, I was in a health website when i read a testimony of a woman from Canada who was totally cured of COPD through the herbal remedy she purchased from a herbal clinic in South Africa, i immediately contacted this herbal clinic via their website and purchased the COPD herbal remedy, i received the herbal remedy within 7 days via courier service and commenced usage. After four weeks and two days of usage, I did another breathing test and my doctor confirmed my lungs were repaired. Thank you Health herbal clinic.

My mother was diagnosed with ALS in May 2014. Her doctor put her on riluzole, letting her know there was no cure but the medication might provide her a few more months of delayed symptoms. ALS progresses at different rates and affects different body parts first. My mother, being 73 at the time, fell into a category of what they call "fast progression" (older female). Her arms weakened first, then her hands, her mouth, and throat, and finally her lungs. Throughout her two-and-a-half-year ordeal, she was able to walk with assistance nothing was really working to help her condition.I took her off the riluzole (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started her on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, her symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the ALS disease natural herbal formula. She's now almost 76 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!! Visit there website www. healthherbalclinic. net
