Know about Motore Neuron Disease-

The motor neuron diseases (MNDs) are a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy cells that control essential muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing. Normally, messages from nerve cells in the brain (called upper motor neurons) are transmitted to nerve cells in the brain stem and spinal cord (called lower motor neurons) and from them to particular muscles. When there are disruptions in these signals, the result can be gradual muscle weakening, wasting away, and uncontrollable twitching (called fasciculations). Eventually, the ability to control voluntary movement can be lost. MNDs may be inherited or acquired, and they occur in all age groups. In adults, symptoms often appear after age 40. In children, particularly in inherited or familial forms of the disease, symptoms can be present at birth or appear before the child learns to walk.

The causes of sporadic (noninherited) MNDs are not known, but environmental, toxic, viral, or genetic factors may be implicated. Common MNDs include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), progressive bulbar palsy, primary lateral sclerosis, and progressive muscular atrophy. Other MNDs include the many inherited forms of spinal muscular atrophy and post-polio syndrome, a condition that can strike polio survivors decades after their recovery from poliomyelitis.

Is there any treatment?

There is no cure or standard treatment for the MNDs. Symptomatic and supportive treatment can help patients be more comfortable while maintaining their quality of life. The homoeopathic medicine will give you only gives you the prolongs life prolongs life but does not cure the disease.

Excercise may help to improve posture, prevent joint immobility, slow muscle weakness and atrophy, and cope with swallowing difficulties. Applying heat may relieve muscle pain.

What is the prognosis?

Prognosis varies depending on the type of MND and the age of onset. Some MNDs, such as primary lateral sclerosis, are not fatal and progress slowly. Patients with spinal muscular atrophy may appear to be stable for long periods, but improvement should not be expected. Some MNDs, such as ALS and some forms of spinal muscular atrophy, are fatal.

What research is being done?

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) conducts research related to the MNDs in its laboratories at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and also supports additional research through grants to major medical institutions across the country. Much of this research focuses on finding better ways to prevent, treat, and ultimately cure disorders such as the MNDs.

I have had some remarkable success in the treatment of 2 cases of Motor Neuron Disease also known as Lue Gherig's disease or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

Lou Gehrig's disease damages spinal cord pathways and motor neurons, which are important parts of the body's neuromuscular system. The neuromuscular system enables our bodies to move and is made up of the brain, many nerves, and muscles.

One case I treated was an 83 year old man who had slowly lost his motor functions in his extremeties and was confined to bed or to a chair where he was parked by his children in front of a TV to spend his time. He was unable to walk for about a year and was referred to me. I had never treated a similar case but I felt that Arnica 1M in the wet dose could help.

I gave him the remedy, Arnica 1M in a bottle of spring water into which I had inserted 2 drops of the remedy with instructions to take a teaspoonful twice daily. In about 2 weeks he was showing signs of his motor functions slowly returning and in about a month he was found missing from his room to which he had been confined for many months. He was discovered in the barber shop where he had gone to have his hair trimmed.

I would recommend that you too ask your friend to get Arnica 1M and he will insert 3 pellets or better still 2 drops if he can get the remedy in Ethanol, into a 500ml bottle of spring water which is succussed (shaken hard) before a teaspoonful is sipped twice daily for the first few weeks and when the patient shows signs of his motor functions returning this dose can be reduced to just one per day.

Please repost his response on this forum.

I do not visit the ABC as I once used to do since I joined it in the early days of this Century shortly after it was established by its owner Simon Broadley.

Since recording my success in helping 2 senior citizens to return back to life in a few weeks, I am glad to record that I have been treating many more with the same therapy using Arnica 1M in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

It is remarkable that senior patients who present MND and those who present other forms of loss of memory and Alzheimers also seem to benefit from the same Arnica 1M. It is possible that this therapy seems to stimulate the brain in some manner that drugs alone cannot equal and I would recommend that anyone who visits this thread also experiments with this Arnica 1M as prescribed by me.

Answering the request of hira kazmi which alerted me to this thread I regret to inform you that I do not think that the Arnica 1M therapy can help your 4 year old daughter as she seems to suffer from the after effects of Jaundice which has affected the development of her brain.

If you wish to use Arnica, I would suggest that you use the 200c in the Wet dose since the patient is only 4 years of age and I do not have any experience in treating anyone so young who suffers from her condition. You can give her half teaspoonful of Arnica 200c in the Wet dose twice daily and observe and report her response in a week.

I shall copy my default instructions to make the Wet dose which is designed for adults.
You will make it as instructed but you will give her just half teaspoonful or 3ml twice daily.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

My uncle, age-46 years is suffering from motor neuron disease since Aug-2013.
It started with His left leg (between knee & ankle) becoming stiff.
Now, there is hardly any movement in his left limb below the affected portion & fingers are showing stiffness.
Kindly Advice.

The symptoms you have recorded of your uncle at age 46 are very rare for that age and you state that they have been diagnosed as MND.

I would like to have more data on his general health with details of his height and weight and the diagnosis made by his physician. Does he suffer from any other ailments like Gastric problems (GERD)? Has he been doing any regular exercise routine?

I would also suggest that you seek an alternate opinion from another Neurologist.

In the meanwhile, you can get Arnica 1M in Alcohol which you may give him after making the Wet dose as specified in my last post which appears above yours.

Thanks a lot sir, for the prompt reply. I will get the required details.
Meanwhile, as directed we will start Arnica 1M. Hoping for the best.

Hello Joe,

I am from India writing about my Uncle, who is suffering from MND, bulbar onset. He is presently in the hospital on a ventilator. Can you please suggest share the steps with me to prepare that medicine using Arnica 1M.

He is 63 years old and has respiratory problems / failure and so on ventilator. He has no problem speaking though, but is on bed as hardly has got any energy left to get up from the bed (as have lost 20-25 kilos in last few months)

I will visit the homeopathy shop to buy whatever medicines you will recommend and how to prepare a dose out of them.

Any help will be really grateful.

Dear Sir,
This is with reference to my post dated 29.10.2015 & your reply on 30.10.2015.
As suggested by you 2nd & other opinion from neurologist has confirmed MND in his case.His height is 5'3" and weight 65 Kgs and has not gastric problems.
He is taking Arnica 1M in wet dose, 1 teaspoon in morning & night for last 02 months. Besides that, he is taking multi-vitamins.
His condition has not improved. but i have big faith in homeopathy. Kindly advice further.

If what your uncle has is bulbar MND, plumbum metallicum is one good option.

This is an intense pathalogical disease so do not use 1M like potency in the beginning. 30c would be appropriate to start.

Wet dose is prepared as follows:

One or two pills/drops dissolved in 200ml water bottle. From this bottle he needs to take one drop as a dose. From second dose onwards, just before the dose shake the bottle vigorously up and down for 5 times. Doses need not be taken daily. Weekly one dose will suffice. If there is a sign of worsening or discomforting symptoms stop the doses and report.

If i do not respond in three days, send me this link to remind me. There is no notification system as of now.
