"ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. A-myo-trophic comes from the Greek language. "A" means no. "Myo" refers to muscle, and "Trophic" means nourishment – "No muscle nourishment." When a muscle has no nourishment, it "atrophies" or wastes away. "Lateral" identifies the areas in a person's spinal cord where portions of the nerve cells that signal and control the muscles are located. As this area degenerates it leads to scarring or hardening ("sclerosis") in the region."
(ALS Association, 2015).

We have begun toxin removal treatment and so far so good. It has been said that to have successful stem cell treatment ( which is a possible goal,as well as other homeopathic treatments ) one should do as much as possible to remove toxins from the body. We have also been referred to a Doctor for consideration for stem cell treatment.
Please keep us in prayer that God will continue to keep us until the opportunity presents itself. That you again for all that you do and we will keep you updated as we move forward.
Lisa and John
