Documentary on the illness ALS with English subtitles This moving documentary by Aristos Bouïus shows the last days of three people with ALS (ALS Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Their respective partners tell also about the difficulties they encounter with a partner whom for sure will die shortly. In this excerpt only one of the patients is figured. Subjects like home care, euthanasia, dying out of free will to diminish the suffering, as well as the joy people still can have in their last days, are prominently present in this documentary for example during their holiday stay at Les Gaillards in France, where people in the last phase of their life are welcomed in the chambres dhôtes. A doctor explains the precise nature of this illness amongst that: the difference between ALS en Multiple Sclerosis. What you see is only an excerpt of 6 minutes from the documentary which is 55 minutes. The spoken language is Dutch with English subtitles (and French and Russian for that matter). If you want to buy the DVD with the complete documentary, please write to ab@.

ALS - Hug ALS or also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), is the most common form of motor neuron disease. It is a progressive and ultimately fatal neuromuscular disease. ALS causes nerve cells to degenerate. The voluntary muscles weaken and become immobile. ALS leaves the senses unimpaired and the intellect is often unaffected. The video was taken from ALS Society of Canada. www.als.ca
Stand Up Exercise for Immobile ALS person Medical Benefits of Standing Passive standing has been demonstrated to prevent, reverse, or improve many of the adverse effects of prolonged immobilization. The most widely accepted medical benefits of standing include: Prevention of contractures (ankles, knees, and hips) Improvement of range of motion (spine, hips, knees and ankles) Reduction in spasticity Prevention or reversal of osteoporosis and resultant hypercalciuria Improvement of renal function, drainage of the urinary tract, and reduction in urinary calculi Prevention of pressure ulcers through changing positions Improvement in circulation as it related to orthostatic hypotension Improvement in bowel function Normalization of respiratory function Other specific reasons that people stand include: Facilitation of a natural symmetrical standing posture Development & improvement of upper body balance & strength Alleviation of pain caused by prolonged or inappropriate position Development of standing tolerance & endurance Lessening progressive scoliosis Maintenance of bone density Psychological Benefits of Standing Although funding sources rarely recognize the psychological benefits of standing, they can be some of the most important reasons to stand.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis ALS, Motor neurone disease MND Hi again. I'm Jeannie aged 30, I first noticed ALS/MND in June 2000, diagnosed with ALS July 2001...this video is to show everyone how ALS affects you. I thought I'd make another video of me walking so you can see how I'm doing.
ALS residential living... A startling fact about ALS is that well over 90% of the people afflicted with this disease opt to die rather than use a ventilator to breathe for them when the diaphragm becomes to weak to pump the lungs. A significant reason for this is that the perception of life on a vent is pretty dismal. Across the country, the only places to provide care to a vented person are hospitals (or worse) - not an inviting living environment. A prominent nursing home provider in the Boston area is teamed up with the ALS Association in MA to create a new concept in residential care. This is HUGE! In the near future, a person with ALS (pALS), will have a real reason to look forward to a long life.
4 Men, 1 Woman, 1 Baby. Who is the Father? I saw this on Maury and I just HAD to post it on here. In my opinion this is the best Maury segment of the year by far (except for Victoria's segment LOL) but anyway, this woman thinks 4 men are the father of her baby. Which one is it? PAY ATTENTION TO THE CRAZY NAMES OF THE GUYS WHO ARE BEING TESTED.

ALS Life A trailer for my first documentary I'll be shooting throughout the next few months. Taking you through the life of Shelby Ray. Hi this is Shelby speaking just wanted to let you all know that this video is not scripted it is 100% real. The woman in the bed is my mother and that is me taking care of her. She has had ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) since I was two years old, so that's 16 years now. I am making this video to get a message out about ALS, trying to show people what it can do and how to deal with it. My mother should have passed on 2 years after she was diagnosed but her strong spirit and will to live and watch her babies grow up is why she is with us today. Many people don't know what ALS is so from my personal experience this is what I know: It's a progressive disease that attacks your then immune, muscular and respiratory system. My mom first was put on a ventilator to breathe for her then slowly her immune system was weakend and muscles deteriorated. Just imagine every muscle in your body from your tounge to your throat all the way down to wiggling your toes not working, and not being able to speak. That is what it is like for her today. We do have ways of communicating with her by her blinking her eyes for yes and stretching them open for no. I dont want you all to feel sorry for me, I want you to look at your own lives an re-evaluate the abilities you have and use them in the best way possible while you still can. Love, Shelby Ray contact info ...

Surviving ALS # 2 - Back to 1986 Cathy and Bob Jordan look back to very painful times, beginning in 1986, when Cathy was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease)at age 36. ALS is a devastating terminal illness and doctors told her she only had 3 to 5 years to live. Then in 1989, visiting a friend in Florida, Cathy first realized that marijuana could help her - she stopped taking pharmaceutical drugs and started living. In 2006, 20 years with ALS, Cathy and her friend Liz revisit the beach in Bradenton where she smoked that first joint and felt her disease stopping. Visit *** PLEASE READ Cannabis has the most healing effects for patients early in ALS disease progression. While it can be useful later, SMOKING ANYTHING CAN BE DANGEROUS IN ADVANCED CASES OF ALS, so check with your doctor if you have any concerns. This is what works for one person and is not intended to be medical advice. ***
Lou Gehrig's Disease: The Military Connection and ALS Could you be next? Someone you know? A loved one? Why is there a greater risk of ALS with military service? What is ALS? It is absolutely critical that we understands that ALS continues to strike our veteran heroes from across the country and that we must act to ensure that veterans with ALS receive the benefits and the help they deserve and have earned. Support Augie's Quest and The ALS Association. Please help raise awareness! You would never want a loved one or even yourself to suffer from this horrific disease. There is NO Cure!
