It most likely is a contributing factor but why you are not being informed about that? Why media do not inform about such personality like Lida Holmes Mattman? Why media do not inform about bacterial pleomorphism and its potential harmful consequences? Why media always write only about gene mutations and genetic research, genetic screening and genetic case studies? This just is not well balanced informing, this is manipulation.
In fact many (thousands!) people logically noticed Lyme disease results in symptoms which can be compared to ALS symptoms. Naturally people suspect the bacterial infection of this type can play role in ALS. What authorities respond on this? They have denied that repeatedly while not provided any great evidence. It is strange that the real scientific evidence rather supports this theory and ignoring this link becomes suspicious. The presence of this bacterial infection can be the root cause for that chronic inflammation.
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?
Also the latest lengthy articles on ALS provided information which is not part of the general knowledge due to its inherent controversy, please consider still getting familiar with it and explore those topics on your own:
- ALS Community - Buried Alive
- Brutal and Ruthless Truth About ALS
- Nelda Buss - Deciphering the Miracle
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)
