Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) – Lou Gehrig’s Disease
This Universal Sound Therapy Protocol has been designed to assist your body overcome ALS.
Are you or someone you love suffering from ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease and associated symptoms? At Universal Sound Therapy we deal with all sorts of issues including ALS with our sound therapies.
Our therapy is based on frequencies, tuning your body to vibrate at the correct frequency is as important to your body healing itself or reducing symptoms you are facing. Our healing sessions provide your body with the frequencies that would be found in a normal, healthy body. Your system absorbs these frequencies and makes the needed changes to “tune itself” and start to heal. Our bodies want to be healthy and when we provide them with the proper tools they will do everything needed to do just that.
Universal Sound Therapy is in the business to help your body heal and we are so confident that it will work for you that we offer you a 90-day money back guarantee. And if our Alzheimer’s sound therapy CD doesn’t help, just return it for a full refund. Try to get that from your doctor or pharmacy.
Our Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)/Lou Gehrig’s disease sound therapy CD’s help by:
- Decrease or minimize occurrence of muscle cramps and twitching
- Has the correct frequencies to help your body retune itself
- Aligns and opens your Chakra system
- Opens and cleans up your meridians
- Helps your body heal itself
Introduction to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)/Lou Gehrig’s Disease
ALS – Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, sometimes referred as Lou Gehrig’s Disease is a very serious neurological disease that according to the Mayo Clinic, “causes muscle weakness, disability and eventually death.” Mayo says that worldwide, ALS occurs in 1 to 3 people per 100,000 and in 90 to 95% of those people, doctors don’t know why ALS occurs.
Early signs and symptoms of ALS are:
- Difficulty lifting your toes
- Weakness or clumsiness
- Slurring of your speech
- Trouble swallowing
- Muscle cramps and twitching in your arms, shoulders and tongue.
- Muscle Cramps
Short Description of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)/Lou Gehrig’s Disease
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease refers to a group of rare neurological diseases that involve mostly the nerve cells that are responsible for the control of voluntary muscle movement.
Symptoms of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)/Lou Gehrig’s disease
- Muscle twitching in the arm, leg, tongue and shoulder
- Muscle cramps
- Tight and stiff muscles
- Muscle weakness affecting the arm, leg or the diaphragm
- Slurred nasal speech
- Difficulty in swallowing and chewing
About Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)/Lou Gehrig’s disease
Lou Gehrig’s disease belongs to a group of disorders known as motor neuron diseases and results in a gradual deterioration and death of motor neurons that affect muscle. Motor neurons refer to a group of nerve cells that extend from the brain to the spinal cord and to muscles throughout the body. The motor neurons are responsible for initiating and offering important communication links between the brain and the voluntary muscles of the body. As of the present, there is no cure for the disease and there is no effective treatment to stop or reverse the disease progression. The disease follows a progressive course meaning the symptoms get worse over time. Signals from the upper motor neurons in the brain are transmitted to motor neurons in the spinal cord and to motor nuclei of brain called lower motor neurons and from the spinal cord and motor nuclei of brain to a specific set of muscles.
In amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, both the upper and lower motor neurons start to degenerate and die, thus ceasing to transmit messages to the muscle or set of muscles. Since the muscles lose their functionality they begin to weaken, start twitching and eventually waste away. In the end, the brain loses its ability to begin and control voluntary body movements. Patients in the early stages of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis suffer from muscle weakness and stiffness. Over time all muscles under voluntary control are affected and clinically speaking, patients begin losing strength including the ability to eat, speak, move and breathe. Most patients with ALS eventually die from respiratory failure, usually within three to five years when the first symptoms appear. Approximately 10% of patients however live on for 10 additional years.
Causes of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)/Lou Gehrig’s Disease
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2016 estimated that 14,000-15,000 Americans have ALS. ALS is also a common neuromuscular disease worldwide and affects all races and ethnic backgrounds.
Factors for ALS are:
Age – While the disease can appear at any age, research show that clinical symptoms commonly develop between 55 and 75 years old.
Gender – Men are more likely to develop the disease than women but as aging progresses the difference between the sexes disappear.
Race and Ethnicity – According to the latest research, the disease is more likely to develop in Caucasians and non-Hispanics.
There is also a new study that shows the risk in military veterans is 1.5 to 2 times higher to develop ALS. The reason behind this is vague but possible risk factors are exposure to lead, pesticides and other environmental toxins. Lou Gehrig’s disease is recognized as a service-connected disease by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
The cause of ALS is unknown and researchers have yet to determine why the disease strikes some people and not in others. There is evidence however to say that genetics and the environment plays a role for the development of the condition.
In 1993, scientists with the backing of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) found mutations in the SOD1 gene that are associated with the development of familial ALS. While it is still not clear how the mutations lead to the development of motor neuron degeneration, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that it plays a role in producing mutant SOD1 protein that may become toxic. After that, more than a dozen additional genetic mutations have been discovered, a lot through the NINDS-backed research, and each of the gene discoveries offer new insight into potential causes and mechanisms behind amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
In the search for new clinical information on the cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, scientists are doing research on the role of environmental factors. Researchers are looking into potential causes like exposure to toxic and infectious agents, viruses, physical trauma, diet as well as behavioral and occupational factors. For instance, scientists have discovered new information that exposure to toxins during combat, or strenuous physical activity, are potential reasons why some military veterans and athletes are at increased risk of developing ALS. While there is still no consistent association between any environmental factor and the risk of developing ALS, research in the future may shed some light on how some factors are involved in the development and progression of the disease.
Sound Therapy and ALS
For thousands of years, eastern healers have utilized the healing benefits of sound in order to treat disorders of the mind and body. Sound therapy is a range of treatment options that work to alleviate a range of physical, mental and psychological problems. Sound therapy works by using the different healing aspects of sound for the purpose of producing positive effects on the body. The sound vibrates at the right frequency to tune the body and produce healing and lessening of physical and mental symptoms. The healing therapy is done in such a way so that the body is able to absorb the correct frequencies that are normally seen in a healthy state. The system absorbs the healing frequencies and fine-tunes the body to achieve the right healing frequencies. Once fully absorbed the body can go back to its healthy state.
