Food As Factor

Everyone knows food plays a criticial role in determining our health condition. Common sense as well as scientific evidence go hand in hand here – no conflict at all. Of course when it comes to question what and when we should eat situation gets complicated. In the context of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis people may have feeling food is the very last thing to bother with. They may perceive that it is like trying to stop approaching M1A1 Abrams tank with bare hands. Is that rational after all the findings? Let´s see!

Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for some miracles. Humans will need to realize the food factor is not 5% or similar but that it is actually at least 8-12 times more. It is not just about controling healthy weight but about the overall influence on our body. In my opinion our body is designed to receive input of certain optimal structure. If the input is not optimal then the internal processes cannot take place optimally as well and problems arise, however after longer period of time. Please check my initial deductions on chronic diseases. Big catch here is in the miraculous ability of our bodies – it is so capable in dealing with suboptimal inputs so that people actually do not recognize they are failing in providing quality inputs. It takes years if not decades to really harm the body with improper food and humans are not good in analyzing the cause. If they develop some health problem they will be focusing on what changed in last few days, because for instance 10 days ago they felt good. They will also require more or less immediate cure, because they need to do all those things they are used to do every day. The system knows this and tries to provide such immediate cure – it will be some drug which often only suppresses symptom and the patient can continue in improper way of life – often in a way of unintentional selfdestruction.

So what are the inputs? There is no mystery:

I´m no expert on nutrition but I care about myself now much more than ever before. I simply try to avoid all the non-natural, artificial and often harmful ingredients people started adding to food and then I try to have natural products in cleanest and best quality. This simple doctrine is in my opinion very powerful. More over it does not lead to any modern dogmatic diet, it is all about ballanced income of all above mentioned items. I also believe the demand is dynamic and very individual so that the dogmatic diets cannot work well for crowds. Each person is in certain situation and requires its individual food plan – reduction, mass increase, addressing deficiencies etc. I think also genetic predispositions play role here – that´s fair to point out.

As described in my previous post I have made dramatic changes to my diet or food habits. Before that I need not to wory about food at all, I could eat anything, never had weight issues. Perhaps I should rather put on more kilograms. In this post I don´t want to make any dietary suggestions because as I wrote everyone should analyze his situation and come up with very individual plan or changes. However I also recommend to study little bit so that people know how to proceed. There are many consultants and some are indeed knowledgable and can provide valuable advice but lot of them will have just shallow knowledge or will be hidden supplement dealers. I try to create a personal project and be as independent as possible and all I write is for free. There is just no moment in which sentences like “So now you know. I can offer you blahblah for a great price of XX.99 USD and subscription for blahblah … what do you say?” appear. My only goal is to pass information in the way it will penetrate your mind and make you start thinking in an alternative and still safe way. A new way of thinking which can help people to overcome annoying health issues like allergies (my case) but also call up a true miracle. How the miracle will look like? I don´t know. In the context of ALS I´m sure anything what below image suggests, would be considered an absolute miracle. I cannot promise anything, I´m not saying something like this is going to happen. I´m saying it is incumbent to attempt for it.

People who accepted state of things including unfortunate diagnosis may have problems with it. Sometimes it is extremely hard to get to used to living with some very tough limitations. Human mind is very flexible and very inflexible at the same time. Even under extremely tough circumstances people are able to adapt, find their new life style, daily routines and thus feel safer, calmer. This is fine. It is the fallback strategy if there is no other known way. Still it is a clear evidence of our absolutely amazing adapting abilities. It can sound very strange and weird, but even under such terrible cicrumstances which ALS disease brings, people are able to build a comfortable zone. It is just necessary to be able to operate further. In case of ALS I know very well, how it looks like. That´s why I have huge understanding and I feel with these people so much. It was my ill mother who taught me this and enabled me to create a sense for compassion of different magnitude. However now I´m coming with the other way. Someone just needs to test it. That´s it. And yet it seems so hard for suffering people to accept simple fact there can be way out of it, their personal miracle is hard to accept. Perhaps the fear of failure is behind it – it is tough to start believing, but if someone overcomes this, what next? What if failure and disappointment comes afterwards? It could be viewed as even worse painful feeling than the current already accepted suffering. I see these traps in human minds and that is why I think only true fighter can accept such challenge. Questions like: “Shall I slowly witness myself wasting away or shall I better attempt for a miracle by believing in a way out of this hell, no matter if disappoinment comes or not?” are valid. Some professional athlete or army veteran definitely possess the mental power and if still relatiely strong then all chances multiply significantly. But it can be anyone in any state. In the same way people break records in sport, people can break records in recoveries from serious and progressed diseases. I have always believed in this. I read true stories about people who really managed to achieve impossible things. One certainly needs a true heart of courage. I wish everyone good choice in this dilema. I need to write another post on how weird and strange the situation around ALS got – all those organizations, people, researchers including great scientists – they are not that interested, they make promise to review this theory and then never get back. Others never reply, they are blind, they ignore incoming signals. If you cannot imagine miracle you cannot experience it. Research has billions in drug development, they don´t want to hear about simple ways. That´s why this war needs to be won using bottom up approach. Ill braver and stronger people for ill less braver and already weaker people.

I´m still in the process of extracting possibly valuable information from my raw data. It will take some time but I´m impatient and I already know a lot and want to share the information. It is almost necessary to read all the previous posts to be able understand the relationships and be able to recognize the potential. There is no need to read all the scientific articles – this is just evidence for those who would tend to reject everything righ away (a safeguard against pseudoscientific labels). In the rest of the post I will try to provide list of immediate changes enriched with the necessary “why it is important” information so that some ill people can start assessing it as soon as possible and they can also start considering it. Please go through this referenced article on supplementation possible effects from scientific point​1​.

I still do recommend going through Anthony William books or web-site or Facebook profile. He has great sense for passing the information to people. When I was in deep troubles I read those for me important sections repeatedly, several times per day. It always calmed me down and helped me to withstand the pressure and physical changes.
Please make sure you read and understood my DISCLAIMER page. Not everyone has the same talent for experimenting like I have.

That is why you should consult your intended steps with medical representative you trust. I would just tend to recommend someone you really know, someone who will show enough empathy and provide optimal advice given your situation. In case of official consulting with some arrogant physician who has no time and interest in your situation you could receive pure refusal on this protocol (“nonsense” like delivery) which won´t help you at all.

It is still better to start lightly, get feedback from your body and adjust the protocol as necessary. Since people safety is my uttermost interest I haven´t put on below list anything which I would not tried myself, so feel free to drop me e-mail if you are in doubts.

Also please note the list is not ordered – always read the description.

I have found out this herb/supplement is FORBIDDEN and MUST NOT be taken if suffering with autoimmune disease like multiple sclerosis or systemic lupus erythematosus.
I interpret this in following way – lots of autoimmune diseases are today treated with immunosuppressives so taking immune boosting supplements would be the total opposite. This can be case also with other supplements with similar effects. I have quite different explanation of the autoimmune process. It may sound weird to you, but you can ask your physician why he is unable to cure your autoimmune like health issues, you can also ask him to explain you the autoimmuity.
Anyway please bear this in mind and as I wrote try to consult your steps with medical representative and then you will need to make your decision because it is your body and your responsibility. I will always try to provide complete information like this.

Above list and this whole post I´m writing in express mode. Please forgive all mistakes and possibly strange english. I will be correcting the text, extending the list, adding more of quality references and citations etc.
I just wanted to publish ASAP.

Now I´m thinking how does it sound? Perhaps little bit crazy but there is definitely some strange truth, right? We can get back to my insane analogy with M1A1 Abrams tank. It can be on the horizon, you can see it already using binoculars/telescope. It will take some time before it gets to you, but you know that if you don´t do anything it will just crush you. However perhapas something changed, you have just found an RPG-7 rocket launcher and 26 rocket shells. This is sufficient firepower to destroy whole tank platoon, not just one tank. In my case the tank was in pretty far distance (allergies, Lyme like issues, starting very light neurological problems) and I got the armament hopefully soon enough, but most importantly, I recognized the opportunity in front of me, I explored it, I executed the identified steps. This is something people will mainly struggly with. They won´t see the potential, they will require scientific evidence, a scientific study comprising 1000 people with at least 90% success rate, then they will start thinking it is time to give it a chance. I wish all to think differently. There can be people which have the tank already very close if not practically in front of them – it is not shooting, it just slowly moves towards them and if they don´t do anything, it will crush them. In my opinion it is never late to counterattack, I always remember Edgar Cayce ultimate statement on incurable diseases. What an insane analogy, right? After Predator not that surprising though

Another way to look at food and natural supplements as well as some critical vitamines, amino acids etc. is from the gambling point of view, or better sport betting perspective. Let´s say you want to make a bet. Perhaps european footbal like Premier League or in US leagues like NBA, NFL, NHL, MBL or MLS. You can be a cautious casual bettor. Your plan is to play it safe – to bet just small amount and more or less sure wins and thus very low course, let´s say 1.15 on average. However you put 26 such matches on your ticket and bet 20 USD. What is the possible amount to win? It is almost 680 USD. Now suppose it is actually not 25 matches but 50 of them (all the specific herbs, fruits, vegetables). One could already win almost 22 thousands USD with 20 bucks. 1000 times more. Factor of 1000. I believe the same compound power is hidden in proper and optimally selected food. Of course it requires months to recover from unhealthy state. In my case I thought I already fully recovered but last few days I´m experiencing already known issues but in different parts of my body – even something like if child age injuries re-activated somehow and then healed, am I going against the time or what? This is little bit mysterious, I´m aware of that.

Please be cautious and read the last paragraph thoroughly.

Last few important sentences. As I wrote in my previous post, in cases like mine this experimental theory consisting of quite radical change in diet and introducing critically important supplements, one has to count with long fight and temporary state worsening and something I called roller coaster experience. Science is aware of the similar phenomen – Jarisch-Herxheimer reactions. It can be even very dangerous if someone is very weak and perhaps made too many and drastical changes. This could have very bad and unpredictable consequences. I understand why Anthony William recommends taking it very lightly, first A program for 30 days, than B program for another 30 days and last C program. I was still in a good shape and hopefully nothing bad happened to me despite I made those rather extreme changes (judging after 8 months). Anyway in my case 90 days would not be long enough. It is not surprising Mr. William states some people will need years to recover fully. It is most likely true. I´m on this journey and this web site is my testimony. Please take it easy, experiment lightly, ideally under supervision of some friend from medical world. The whole world is about some balance, not about abrupt extreme changes and shock therapies, our bodies don´t like it. Much better is slow start, gradual increase in effort but super steady discipline and endurance, determination. After all it is the same as with loosing weight or starting with fitness. Untrained person can harm herself/himself if starting too heavily from day 1. A key to success is gradual training, regularity and determination. Keep it always in mind.

Also note breathing fresh air and getting sunlight (some regulated UV exposure) is beneficial. I´m no expert on meditation but those deep breath exercises work – I had my simple technique, just how many deep breaths I can do while resting LOL (100+). Try it. The reason is the more oxygenated blood is the more anti-viral and anti-bacterial environment is maintained. In this case oxygen is our big friend.

Don´t be afraid but be cautious and create your own individual plan – we all are individual creatues. If everyone listens to his body, it will tell him/her what to do.

Team work

I´m adding this note as this was not highlighted above despite it is a logical deduction. If someone is ill and already weak there is no way how to actually implement the protocol without a help of others. Luckilly we have loving families and also great friends who are already helping on daily basis. If it is similar to what I saw in our family, then this care is aimed at all the usual activities typical for limited or even already bedridden person. This team is critically important. In our case I think it was just me who was secretly and stubbornly searching for information and hoping for miracle, this is fine. There is still so much to do, the work to be done in terms of patient care is very demanding. Now it looks additional duties would be needed and that is correct. However it is already acceptable and the new “what if it helps” feeling can even help with the work morale as a whole. It is just about serving different more healthy food and drinks and add those high-quality supplements (zinc, magnesium, B-complex, selenium, L-lysin, vitamine C, turmeric, vilcacora, chaga, spirulina, lemon watter/cellery herb teas etc.). I personally would recommend dividing responsibility (despite it can change, rotate). Logistics is very important – having the fruits and vegetables in the house is the first task, then preparing it and serving, cleaning juicer and ensuring it is ready for next day etc.). Then cooking! A rich and healthy soup needs to be cooked using simple and raw quality ingredients under full control and supervision, not bought in supermarket full with conservants! It really can be a big project. All healthy people work hard but happily and with determination for their ill family member or friend. A true example of humanity. I always hoped I will be able to do more, something with a healing potential, not just the maintenace care. It looks to me this is it despite it looks like foolish dream – please read the whole web site, realize how science cures EBV infection/mononucleosis (diet!), realize that Lyme is treated with ATBs but this doesn´t work and there are natural antibiotics like garlic and herbs. It just requires certain braveness to start believing, to become curious. It is not stem cell therapy which will put you in real dilema due to results known and costs required. I can always help remotely with advice as well. God bless all who don´t give up and fight back

Everyone needs to eat and drink – why not to make couple changes and add some quality supplements if ill?

In next post I will deal more with the strange “mission impossible” curse created around ALS during decades of unsuccess.

I make an exception and allow comments here as I will be probably updating and fixing the post as written above.
