Dealing With Congestion

Congestion, the build-up of fluid or “swollen tissue” in the body—particularly the lungs and/or nasal cavities—poses great risk for ALS patients. The decreased ability of the diaphragm makes it difficult to sneeze out the excess mucus or cough up phlegm.

Alleviating Painful Cramps

Tizanidine, Baclofen and Quinine Sulfate all have the potential to provide relief from spasticity, rigidity and clonus that cause so many with ALS to suffer from painful cramping.

The Benefits of the NeuRx Diaphragm Pacing System

The NeuRx DPS has been specifically developed to treat respiratory issues in ALS and spinal cord injury patients.

The OBI Story

Obi™ is a new and revolutionary assistive dining device that is designed to empower those afflicted with differing abilities, such as ALS, giving people back the dignity and independence of feeding themselves, while enabling a caregiver to eat at the same time.

The Benefits of Glutathione

Glutathione is one of the best known antioxidants that keeps the immune system healthy and is involved in tissue building and repair.

Mexilitine for Pain Relief

A study published in Neurology Magazine online suggests that people may find significant relief from muscle cramp frequency and severity by taking 300 mg per day of Mexilitine.
