Mission Statement

The ALS Association (ALSA) is the only national not-for-profit health agency dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal, neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord. When these cells die, voluntary muscle control and movement dies with them. Patients in the later stages of the disease are totally paralyzed, yet in most cases, their minds remain sharp and alert. ALS struck Yankee Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig in 1939. He died two years later, but ALS is still commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The mission of the Connecticut Chapter of The ALS Association to be the central source in Connecticut for comprehensive services and education of ALS patients, families and caregivers. All services are offered at no cost.

Since that time, we have grown steadily. The ALS ASsociation CT Chapter is the only not-for-profit voluntary health organziatin in the state dedicated solely to the fight against ALS - we cover all the bases - research, patient & community services, public education and advocacy.

My husband who had been diagnosed with Bulbar ALS disease for 2 years at the age of 63 had all his symptoms reversed with Ayurveda medicine from naturalherbscentre. com after undergoing their ALS/MND natural protocol, he no longer requires a feeding tube. God Bless all Lou Gehrig’s disease Caregivers. Stay Strong, take small moments throughout the day to thank yourself, to love your self, and pray to whatever faith, star, spiritual force you believe in and ask for strength. I can personally vouch for these remedy but you would probably need to decide what works best for you.
