Advice & Tips: Fellow ALS patients, I´m taking Organic coconut oil and magnesium daily for 2 years and 7 months now.2 to 4 weeks after I started this treatment my ALS progress stopped and my health condition start to improving. I continued with this treatment and during the time I achieve more and more improvment- My hands and legs are much stronger,my breathing is much better and many other things improved much. I started with 1 tablespoon of Organic coconut oil daily and during the time increased the daily dossage up to 4 tablespoons daily. When you start with big dossage you can get diarhea,so it is better to start with 1 tablespoon and during the time increasing the daily dossage. Not all the ALS people will be possible taking 4 tablespoons daily and not receive diarhea. So when somebody it is not possible to taking high daily dossage than he can taking 1,2 or 3 tablespoons daily. I found that 1,2 or 3 tablespoons are effective too. For magnesium - I´m taking 1/4 or 1/2 tablespoon daily. It depends how much you can take without get diarhea. Every people is different,maybe you can take more. Beside Organic coconut oil and magnesium I´m making and using things from the best protocol to stop and reverse ALS which I found during my 2 years research. It contains 2 parts - one is for Physical Aspects and one for Mental – Emotional – Spiritual Aspects. Both are critical important for healing ALS for long term.
