After waiting 6 weeks to see a Holistic practitioner, I finally met with one who offered me some hope today. I have been dealing with the facial and leg fasciculations for @ 4 months- taken everything from Neurontin/ Valium/ Wellbutrin/ Xanax and Flexeril. Nothng has worked at calming the monster. I figure I would pass this info that I gained today from an expensive Holistic professionl visit to see if anyone has had any luck with this approach. I spent @ 1 hour answering a 4 page marathon multiple choice questionaire and another hour one-on-one with this doctor and here is what she said and perscibed. She said that although she has only ever worked with 1 ALS patient, she has many MS patirnts and directed he approach to treating the symptoms with a regimine of natural vitamines and herbs and oils. I can not say if this will work, but I did purchase the regimin and started taking a few hours ago. Here is what it is. A product called Cytozyne which contains neonatal adrenal complx, superoxide dismutase and catalese- this is a pill and taken 3 times a day. A magnesium supplement that is in powder form that contains 615 mg of magnesium and this is taken 2 times a day in a tea form- tastes like fruit tea when mixed. An oil called DHA oil blend- this contains omega 3 fatty acids/ ALA/DHA/EPA Omega 6 and Omega 9-- This is one nasty tasting oil and is taken 3 times a day- she said this help the mylin be protected. And finally a spray for under your toung 3 times a day- it contains Helianthemum,nunmularium,clematis,impatiens and prunus- I do not know what any of these are-- it tastes good. So after the initial cost of the visit and the supplements I spen @ $250. If it works I will be happy-- If not.. I can say I at least tried. Hope this helps anyone who wants to look at another option.
