Default Wendy Moore and Youtube video

Has anyone else seen the video on Youtube entitled "Woman Miraculously Healed of Incurable ALS (Lou Gehrig's)"? I find this intriguing but don't want to fall victim to false hope. I wonder if she was diagnosed correctly initially? Just thought I'd write and ask for other opinions.
Thanks
Darryl

I think more likely a misdiagnosis. There are many diseases that mimic ALS when it's on early stages and are hard to identify and differentiate from it.
I know about cases where originally the diagnosis was ALS but, after a while with practically no progression or, very slow progression, they were retested (more EMGs, MRI, spinal tap, muscle biopsy, etc.) and upon these new test results the Neuros concluded that the patient didn't have ALS but something else.

Not saying that...miraculously...someone with ALS, might heal but, those cases are probably one in a million.
What I've seen and it's also been documented is PALS living with the disease longer than 10 years (not many but some).
