doTERRA Essential Oil Support For:
Lou Gehrig’s Disease
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis / (ALS)
Lou Gehrig’s disease or ALS affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The particular nerve cells affected are the motor neuron cells that control the voluntary muscles. The cause of ALS in general is not known except for about 10 percent of the cases where the cause can be traced to a genetic defect.
Symptoms do not usually develop until a person is middle aged or beyond. It is more common in men than women and is quite rare only occurring in less than .002% (2 in 100,000) of the population. The gradual progression of the symptoms varies from individual to individual. Some are only expected to live for a few years where others may survive for decades.
Symptoms for those with ALS result from the motor cells slowly deteriorating causing the person to loose control of certain functions and making it increasingly more difficult to perform ordinary functions.
This may begin with difficulty in simple movements, breathing, and swallowing. With time symptoms may progress to include difficulty with speech, twitching, increasing muscle weakness with more difficulty in movements, gagging or drooling, and muscle cramps or paralysis.
ALS does not affect the senses (sight, smell, taste, hearing, touch). It only rarely affects bladder or bowel function, or a person’s ability to think or reason.
There is no known cure for ALS… the support listed below is to greatly help.
doTERRA Essential Oils work perfectly with the body to support normal functions of the body and dōTERRA products are safe to use on all ages.
