Stress is a word everyone understands but there are certain types of stress and people should always try to specify or describe the stress they actually mean. Obviously we have psychic stress then physical stress and if we were experts or scientists we could also talk about oxidative stress or perhaps even other types (?). It is no surprise stress of all above types plays role in ALS development and all are highly suspected.
Stress and the direct links to ALS present such big traces that I am almost wondering how is it possible humans did not achieve any success or breakthrough yet. Well, since I studied this problematics from great width I think I know why is this happening but that is a for greater debate – please read my whole website! 😁 The reason why stress or better its regulation is so important is that it is a really damaging factor for our precious organism, not only human organism but all creatures and even plants. Imagine you have two persons. Both have just bought shiny new car of same type, perhaps different only in engine power and some advanced features like smart assistants or top sound system.
One person uses the car wisely – this person uses the car in line with the designers intention. This includes everything like style of driving, regular care, protection from weather factors. There is yet another one quite neglected and absolutelly obvious but extremely important aspect – this smart person keeps the car clean, externally (exterior), internally (interior) and then also from the advanced internals point of view, despite the person has no expert knowledge (cleaning of gas system, use of proper type of gas in terms of octane number, no fu*king BIO components etc.). The car serves well despite it costs something extra. From car point we can say it really likes its master or driver and they live long and prosper, perhaps they have even mutual emotional relationship! 😊
Now what about the second person? It is clear where I am going, right? So let´s keep it short. This person just does everyhting opposite and NOT really in line with how the car designers thought the car should be used. The worst thing is that this person is not just occasional sinner but a chronic sinner – from some unknown reason. So the car is dirty, unmaintained, driven in stressing way (sharp accelerate & sharp brake style). This person just likes this and perhaps is rich so has more cars or can buy new after 2 years. This car is under chronic stress of all kinds, thanks to its driver and owner. It could be more likely involved in terrible car accident.
Long story short – this is same with our bodies. Someone just stresses it too much and does not maintain and care enough. Some people often repeat how adrenaline is their drug but then something bad happens, they do not listen and continue, then something even worse happens. Humans are already in stage where replacement of parts is possible and these “sinners” (not always it is only their fault) can get new liver or kidney. Listening to their counterpart is often not developed well in people. They can get exposed to other harming conditions and together with stress factor they may find themsevles in bad situation. Medical system supports problems as it suppresses problems chemically – no pain, no problem is just terrible approach.
These are simple analogies and it is just the top layer how to explain it to people. But nobody should doubt this is just some fairy tale (yeah, stress, I know, what else do you have there?). This can be explained also using known findings (and mainly very complex and advanced links!) by medical scientists. They can start talking about layers of immune system or endocrine system and digesting system. This quickly comprises whole organism including all organs, directly or indirectly also nervous system and how it suffers under certain conditions etc. I recommend everyone to study these things from popular sources as it is mainly the lack of knowledge and consequences which are behind many health conditions and diseases which develop slowly after 10-30 years of bad lifestyle.
In ALS stress plays role in the same way it plays role in cancer. Something is under control of the person (lifestyle), something is not (genetic predispositions). However the often cited oxidative stress is important link to the overall ALS mosaic. This is where the toxic metals come to play. Of course I am not blaming anyone and instead trying to help but in this context please read something about Mr. Iron Horse.
Please note this answer is part of FAQ page containing 45+ amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) related questions. It can be also viewed as single post which may look little bit odd. For example search engine like Google or Bing can direct you at such view. If you are missing a context check the parent page and perhaps also other questions. Do you know ALS Experimental Theory? Are you aware of ALS 1KD Challenge? Have you read results of my ALS investigation with really controversial conclusion?
Fight against ALS disease needs to be lead by employing below generic tactics (details are part of this website too):
- Stabilization of PH across all body fluids
- Excretion of heavy metals (mercury, lead, cadmium) and toxic metals (aluminium) from body via natural chelatation and detoxification procedures
- Supporting immune system using all known means (supplementation, natural immune boosters)
- Supporting ALS ill organism with radical diet ("Kernel mode diet") with rich antioxidant and quality nutrition components
- Putting special focus on resting, breathing exercises, regulated sun exposure, keeping healthy and positive morale
- Support from other people who need to be also positive and believe in real improvements, words like fatality, incurability are forbidden and forgotten words
- Avoiding all strenuous activities and focusing on regulating all types of stress as much as possible (physical stress, psychic stress)
