Advice & Tips: 4 weeks of normast+ashwaganda + stretching exercices Breathing : a little better. More and more, I can whisper , sometimes I can even say a few words aloud. It means that my diaphragm is getting stronger. Right arm and right thumb: a little stronger Left arm and legs: new connections ( beginning of new movements) So far it’s working. Will it last ? We’ll see…

Advice & Tips: Ten days of normast (tablets 600 mg x 2) Early May ALS had taken over: my breathing got worse, I needed my Bi-Pap almost 24h/24, I had no more appetite, my voice got weak, my speech was no longer understandable, excess saliva… Normast not only put a hold but I’ve been experiencing some improvements: Breathing: slightly better, I can breathe again 20’ without my Bi-Pap , I eat a little more. My voice is stronger, my speech is better Excess saliva: I’ve got a small window in the morning, and another one of around 2 hours in the afternoon during which my saliva is back to normal Arms: a little stronger I now hope that it’s only the beginning. We’ll see. I add some Indian ginseng believing the combination of the two will be more powerfull
