To really understand als, one needs to understand that als develops when factors and patterns in people's lives come together in a certain way to create it. In other words, als is the logical result of choices made by people, the people who directly experience the degeneration and the rest of us too.
What this means is that by making different choices one can prevent the development of als. What this also means is that, although as far as I am aware there is no effective medical treatment that does much about als, one can solve the problem and heal by changing what is going on with the underlying factors and patterns.
Many people do not realize this about als, and so this eminently solvable and preventable problem persists and people continue to needlessly suffer.
To further understand how als is created and how it can be prevented and solved, see my work, along with the work of Gabor Mate, Steven Shackel, Craig Oster, Evy McDonald and Bruce Lipton, among others.
