Bernardo talks about how a paleo diet, supplements, exercise, syntonic therapy and his faith in himself have managed to slow the progression of ALS, which he was diagnosed with in 2009. Bernardo and his father, a doctor, devised their own plan for treatment which consisted of a complete lifestyle change, but five years on Bernardo is still fighting fit and exercises for up to four hours each day.
