My husband first symptoms of ALS occurred during covid, but was diagnosed in 2021 when he was 61 years. He was on Riluzole- not crazy about it! he was also on Gabapentin and Radicava not crazy about any of it either, The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help him. The medical team did even less. His decline was rapid and devastating. His arms weakened first, then his hands and legs. I was a master Gardener and love herbs! This ALS took my life from me, I was no longer able to work in my garden anymore because I was a full time caregiver for my husband. We stopped most of his ALS medications due to severe side effects and I started him on herbal treatments from Health Herbs Clinic (healthherbsclinic. c om), the treatment has made a very huge difference for him. His symptoms including body weakness and slurred speech disappeared after few months on the treatment. He is getting active again since starting this treatment, he is able to walk and able to ride his treadmill again.

I stopped ALS(Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) medicines prescribed due to severe side effects, and decided to go on natural herbal approach. My neighbour introduced me to Kykuyu Health Clinic and i immediately started on their ALS herbal formula treatment. This herbal treatment has made a tremendous difference for me. My symptoms including muscle weakness, stiff muscles, muscle spasms, difficulty speaking, fatigue, difficulty swallowing, all disappeared after six weeks treatment! visit kykuyuhealthclinic . com

This was great, I have been researching for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Mayaka Natural Clinic Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis HERBAL FORMULA (just google it). It is a smashing one of a kind product for reversing ALS completely. Ive heard some decent things about it and my buddy got amazing success with it.
