Dr. Bedlack Video: Studying ALS Reversals
If you have the time during these days of lockdown and, are looking for something just a little different to ponder; here’s an interesting video. It is Dr. Bedlack explaining his approach to studying ALS reversals.
In the video, Dr. Bedlack covers: how he got involved in studying ALS reversals, his first ALS reversal patient, the definition of a reversal, why it’s worth studying them, his hypotheses about reversals, and his ROAR and STAR programs. Link: https://youtu.be/69XBOw5iPJI
A few interesting takeaways from the video:
- As of October 2019, Dr. Bedlack has confirmed 43 ALS reversals.
- EMGs on the reversals showed their motor neurons grew extra branches to the muscle tissue, to help make up for motor neurons that died due to ALS. This is similar to motor neurons in patients who survived polio.
- The average ALS reversal: 51 yrs., male, had symptoms that progressed fast before the reversal, and certain alternative therapy products were associated with their reversal.
For some, Dr. Bedlack is treading on controversial territory, for others it all makes perfect sense.
