I was diagnosed with ALS(Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) last year. My symptoms are muscle loss tingling across the top part of my back like bugs crawling. My speech is slurring and I’m drooling and fingers and toes drawling up lost a lot of weight. I can’t use my hands they are to weak and I can’t button my pants and using my hands and arms wears me out. When I read the information on different site online, I learnt that ALS can be reversed with Best Health Herbal Centre (ww w. besthealthherbalcentre. c om) ALS HERBAL REMEDY TREATMENT, so i decided to give it a try. May this year I purchased 2 bottles of ALS herbal remedy from Best Health Herbal Centre. The treatment worked very effectively for my ALS, most of my severe symptoms simply vanished within 7 weeks of usage. Am currently living a normal life.

My first symptoms of ALS occurred in 2009, but was diagnosed in 2011. I had severe symptoms ranging from shortness of breath, balance problems, couldn't walk without a walker or a power chair, i had difficulty swallowing and fatigue. I was given medications which helped but only for a short burst of time, then i decided to try alternative measures and began on ALS Formula treatment from Herbal Health Point, It has made a tremendous difference for me (Visit ww w. herbalhealthpoint. c om). I had improved walking balance, increased appetite, muscle strength, improved eyesight and others.

My husband was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) when he was 63 years old 4 years ago. 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. Last year, a family friend told us about Organic Herbal Clinic and their successful ALS TREATMENT, we visited their website www. organicherbalclinic. com and ordered their ALS/MND Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed his Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, he is able to walk and able to ride his treadmill again, he is pretty active now.
