Deanna's Protocol....A Possible Cure for Lou Gehrig's

Thank you all so very much for your kind words, prayers, and thoughts during a difficult time for our family.
I feel really blessed to have friends like you praying for my Dad.
We receive each day with him as a complete and wonderful gift.
I appreciate your kindness so much...

I also wanted to post about a new protocol that is showing very promising results in the cure for Lou Gehrig's Disease.
For those of you who don't know what Lou Gehrig's or ALS {Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis} is, here is a definition from the ALS Association...

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

The disease was named after the famous baseball player, Lou Gehrig, who died from it in 1941. 

The disease can show symptoms from the brain down {called bulbar onset} or can be sporadic and start in the feet or limbs.
Four months ago my Dad started having trouble walking long distances.
 He was diagnosed in September 2012 with sporadic ALS and started using a cane when his foot started dragging.
By October he was using foot braces and a wheel chair some of the time.
By November his legs pretty well quit working.
He maintained some use of his right leg.
By December he was bedridden.
ALS reacts differently for each patient and life expectancy is 2-5 years.
We think my Dad has probably had it for at least 3 years, but because of having Chron's Disease and COPD, some of the symptoms were masked.
ALS is extremely hard to diagnose and there is no simple blood test, rather a battery of nerve tests and other calculations of symptoms.
There is no known cure for Lou Gehrig's Disease...BUT there is some hope!
We started my Dad on the Deanna Protocol...read about it HERE.
Dr. Tedone is a retired physician who has developed an extremely amazing compilation of nerve building supplements that can stop and even reverse some ALS symptoms.
His website is Winning the Fight.

From the site...


Prior to Winning the Fight’s establishment in 2010, Deanna first displayed symptoms of ALS in 2007 at age 30. Upon learning Deanna’s diagnosis, her father Dr. Vincent Tedone, retired physician and Winning the Fight medical liaison, researched NDs hoping to develop a treatment. With Deanna’s help, Dr. Tedone was able to test a variety of supplements on Deanna and measure their effectiveness. After over a year of testing, Dr. Tedone finally developed a treatment protocol that reduced ALS symptoms and restored functionality and strength in certain areas of Deanna’s body. After developing the protocol, Dr. Tedone continued to improve the treatment. This treatment, called the Deanna Protocol, consists of non-invasive, inexpensive, and easily available oral supplements. Since the development of the Deanna Protocol, other ND patients who have used the protocol succeeded in slowing and reversing the progressive damage NDs have caused to their bodies.

My Dad started on the protocol about 4 weeks ago and we have seen a little improvement.
He still insists upon taking the supplements...and I think it has most definitely extended his life!
Had we been able to catch the disease in earlier stages, I think we would have had even more amazing results.

About 5 weeks ago, my Dad started slurring his words {which is part of the disease} and within a week of taking the supplements, that stopped and his speech came back normally.
He also seemed to keep what function he had in his right leg.
Along with the protocol, he has been taking 8 TBS. of pure coconut oil daily, warmed in oatmeal.
Coconut oil has very promising results, too.

If you know someone who is suffering from a neurological disorder like ALS, refer them to WinningtheFight.net.

It could save their life!

I am a BIG advocate and so excited that Deanna's Protocol is in the initial testing phases.
Lou Gehrig's is related to Alzheimer's, MS, Parkinson's disease...so I wouldn't be afraid to check with your doctor and try the protocol with any other neurological disease. 
Dr.Tedone will send you the protocol {and suggest you speak with your doctor} if you email him.

Thank you again for your wonderful and supporting comments, prayers, and kind thoughts.
They mean so much.

* My Dad passed away peacefully on Jan. 14th, 2013, just four short months from his diagnosis.
He had other complications which made the ALS much more difficult.

I am SO THANKFUL for the Protocol, though. 
We started my Dad on it and he was just starting to have trouble swallowing, slurring his words fairly profoundly, and losing his motor abilities in his arms. 

Within a WEEK of being on the Protocol...ALL of that came back.

He NEVER lost his ability to swallow, or talk, and had the use of his arms until the end.

We owe that to Deanna's Protocol.

I truly believe that had we been able t get an earlier diagnosis, my Dad would be here.

Please, if you have been recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's, waste NO TIME in starting on the Protocol!!

You can download it for free on Winning the Fight.

Just register and then click on the top left hand link "Get the Most Recent Protocol."

They also have some great resources!
Another great place to hear about how the Protocol is working is at ALS Advocacy forum.

Here is a GREAT viseo of how Dr. Tedone developed the Protocol and the most resent research proving that it works!



I pray that this disease will have a cure soon.

Many Blessings,

Julia

This does look very promising. I've seen encouraging tests results with high doses of coconut oil as well. We need research dollars into the diseases of the brain that seem to be related to nutrition imbalances!

Julia,

I've been meaning to leave a comment to let you know that my family and I have been praying for you, your dad, and your whole family.

I'm so happy to hear of the progress he has made, and I'm glad you posted about Deana's Protocol.

God bless you,

Sherry

I'm sorry your dad is suffering, but I am very glad that he has such an amazing supportive family traveling this journey with him. It's a blessing that the supplements have reversed the slurring and helped to retain the strength in his leg, and hopefully with continued use they will help to restore his health. It's always a blessing to have hope!

Dear Julia,

What wonderful news you share with us today. I am so excited to hear about the promising breakthroughs and/or research being done in the field of neurological diseases. I have been keeping your father in my prayers...our family, too, was touched by ALS. Such a body wasting/ravaging disease. My uncle lived about 5 years...and this was in the mid 1980s. I pray that their has been at least some advancement since then, but I know that research dollars are limited and that medical science breakthroughs take years.

Bookmarking this page for future reference if needed! Again, keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Blessings,
Valerie

I will be praying for your dad. I was wondering if he is receiving any treatment from a chiropractor since the disease involves the spine. I know a lot of conventional doctors view chiropractors as witch doctors, but that's not true. I started going to one for pain and I amazed at how many conditions they can help with and, in some cases, cure. It's not just getting an adjustment and you're on your way. It's a lot more involved. The one I go to specializes in the atlas bone at the top of the spine. But they work on your entire body since it's all connected. They can even help children with autism. I've improved a great deal in the month I have been seeing a chiropractor. I was just thinking that they might be able to help your dad, too, while he is undergoing his new therapy; the Deanna Protocol. I will say prayers for you, too.

That is great to read. My mother in law is considering the protocol

I have just come upon your blog, and I love its sweet and simple motto. I was searching the Deanna Protocol because my boyfriend (age 26) has ALS, and he has been on the protocol but has not seen any benefits from it. Is your father still benefiting from the Protocol?

Mihaela said...

Dear Julia,

I am so sorry that your dad has this terrible disease and i can fully understand you because my father has the same... A few days ago i came across the Deanna protocol, now i am trying to find all those supplements because we are from Croatia and some products are not available here.. Hopefully it will help my father too... I am praying for all patients that soone there will be a cure!
