I read Dagmar’s fabulous book yesterday, and I want to read it again, but I cannot find it! Can anyone help?

Joanne – – many thanks for your kind words 🙂
Here is the link to all the posts in my ALS and Wellness Blog: https://alsandwellness.blogspot.com/2017/09/als-and-wellness-blog-archives.html
and the link to my (free) book: https://alsandwellness.blogspot.com/2015/07/new-book-align-lengthen-strengthen-your.html
In it, I share motivation and wellness tips from my first year of living with ALS.
PS: I’m working on my 2nd book! Working title: “10 Lessons from 10 years Living with ALS.” Hope to have it finished by end of summer 🙂

Of course it is free!! That is just like you Dagmar, doing things to help others. I haven’t read your book but now that I have some time on my hands it is on my list!

Do you have your 2nd book finished yet?

It’s not quite done yet, Kathy – – but I plan to finish it soon 🙂
When it is finished you can be sure that I’ll share the announcement in the forum. 🙂

I have also just finished your book, and read all your blogs. I like how you have used simple strategies over the years to manage your ALS which seems to have worked for you.
I have been diagnosed for over two years, and have been a bit overwhelmed by the various information there is on how best to look after yourself.
With regards to the Original Strength exercise programme you follow, do you use the YouTube videos or do you get specific training programmes you subscribe to?
I’m now looking forward to your next book !

Thank you for the positive review of my book, Martin. I’m glad you found it helpful.
Now beginning my 11th year with ALS, I continue to do basic RESET movements from Original Strength (Diaphragm breathing, hands & knee crawling, rolling, rocking, etc.). Even though I’ve been able to advance to adding more traditional exercise movements into my various routines, the RESETs are interspersed throughout and done daily. Somehow these movements keep the “connection” clear between my brain and muscles.
As to how I learned them: I read their book Pressing Reset, https://originalstrength.net/shop/pressing-reset-original-strength-reloaded/- – and refer to it when needed. Signed up for their free email newsletter https://originalstrength.net/blog/ and I watch their YouTube videos https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCC6g6yv0bSnA6nO3glRKL_Q (I skip the tougher, advanced versions and look for and follow the easy demonstrations).
I also follow the online blog/videos from: Z-Health Education https://zhealtheducation.com/blog/
And have recently discovered the videos: Strength Side (only the easy ones!) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9BNGVGr_lvbn3d23ckuVOA

Thanks for the reply Dagmar. I’m going to give the Original Strength exercise a try and look in to purchasing the book.
