In Search of Supplements

It is so easy to just spin out of control emotionally and think you are in a race/fight for your life when given a diagnosis like ALS. Luckily, we have this wonderful thing called the internet, but YOU need to be your own best healthcare advocate. Everywhere you look, someone has some revolutionary pill that will cure you and change your life forever. That, unfortunately doesn’t exist, so I have started my own personal quest for all the supplement knowledge I can digest. I try to browse only government and university websites such as als.net, alsa.orgnih.gov and mayoclinic.org  for my research. I don’t look to supplements that are not FDA approved, proven to be effective or beneficial, and only take those approved by my healthcare team. Until supplements are submitted to a clinical trial, they cannot be recommended as beneficial, as there is no clinically proven evidence for benefit. This article has a lot of good information. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2631353/
