We're not doing the Ice Water Challenge in this weather but, you can still test your ALS knowledge!

Take this quiz and see how much you know about ALS and find out how we treat ALS naturally.

1. True or False. The C9orf72 mutation is the most common genetic cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

A. True
B. False

2. The C9orf72 mutation affects up to approximately _____ of cases of familial cases of ALS and approximately _____ of sporadic cases.

A. 20%; 50%
B.
30%; 30%
C. 50%; 20%

3. True or False. The C9orf72 repeat expansion mutation can include frontotemporal dementia.

A. True
B. False

4. According to research findings, the C9orf72 repeat expansion mutation carries negative prognostic characteristics in ALS, primarily for __________ patients with spinal-onset disease.

A. Male
B. Female

5. True or False. Male spinal-onset C9orf72 expanded cases of ALS were also more likely to have experienced a shorter diagnostic delay.

A. True
B. False

We can all practice ALS prevention with our daily diet. Even when you have a less than perfect diet - you can take high quality nutrients from Xymogen. I recommend Xymogen's Daily Dose Pack of ActivEssentials (in powder or cap form), AngioNox to increase Nitric Oxide so your circulatory, immune and nervous system cells can communicate, ALAmax CR whole body multifunctional antioxidant, NAC - precursor of glutathione for detoxification and Nrf2 Activator master regulator of antioxidant pathways. We offer I.V. therapies that contain major antioxidants for complete absorption. Your treatment is individualized with injectable German medicines are specific formulas for ALS. All I.V. therapies are MD ordered in NYS. 

Heavy metals can be the basis for so many life hindering symptoms. They could be caused by your environment and toxins that you did not even know you were ingesting. Stop suffering, come see Dr. G at Second Nature Care where you can be tested for heavy metal and nonmetal toxins that could be making you sick. We are your Detox ExpertsWe offer ozone chelation which addresses viral, bacterial and fungal infections and an added bonus of chelation which removes heavy metals that cause hardening of the arteries and cardiac events.  Do your Urine Toxic Metals Test today. Second Nature Environmental Detox.

Answers:

1. A. True - “The C9orf72 mutation represents the most common genetic cause of ALS,” according to information cited in a literature review article published online in Neurology Reviews. The article reviewed a report originally published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

2. C. 50%; 20% - The C9orf72 mutation “affects up to 50% of familial cases and 20% of sporadic cases” of ALS, according to a literature review article published online in Neurology Reviews, which discussed a report originally published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

3. A. True - ALS that is based in C9orf72 repeat expansion mutation “is associated with a distinctive clinical phenotype that sometimes includes frontotemporal dementia,” according to a literature review article published online in Neurology Reviews, which discussed a report originally published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

4. A. Male -  “Researchers have shown that the negative prognostic characteristics of the C9orf72 repeat expansion in [ALS] apply primarily to males with spinal-onset disease,” according to a literature review article published online in Neurology Reviews, which discussed a report originally published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

5. A. True - “‘Male spinal-onset C9orf72 expanded cases [of ALS] were also more likely to have experienced a shorter diagnostic delay, suggesting rapidly progressing disease,’” according to a literature review article published online in Neurology Reviews, which discussed a report originally published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.
