SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT OF MOTOR NEURONES DISEASE, ALS, LOU GEHRIG'S
Dr. David Martz -- unedited footage from Bev Feldman on Vimeo.
Dr Martz was diagnosed with Motor Neurones Disease ( Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, ALS, Lou Gehrig's Disease) in 2003.
Above he talks about his journey in being tested for Lyme Disease but repeated negative serology until eventually a positive DNA test in Urine.
He was treated with aggressive IV antibiotics, he says the change was dramatic.
'Within 1 month the body pain that had required oxycodone had disappeared, the arthritis that had required Intramuscular Methatroxate had totally disappeared.
Within 1 month my energy went from half an hour to with 4 to 5 hours stamina.
By 2 months I was able to cross my legs without using my arms to assist them.
By 3 months I could get up out of a chair myself without anyone having to pull me up.
By 6 months my Neurological findings had disappeared.
I did not return to absolute complete normality but did return to about 70% of my base line self and was subsequently able to open a new practice to see if my response to antibiotics might be shared by others stricken down with the usually fatal diagnosis of ALS ( MND).
Rocky Mountain Chronic Disease Specialists was opened in 2005 and we saw approximately 900 patients over the next 2 1/2 years.
About 100 of them had ALS ( MND) we did identify that some patients did respond to antibiotic therapy regardless of the positivity or negativity of their Lyme Disease testing by any laboratories.
We found about 15% of people clearly got functionally better and probably 20- 30% had their disease stabilized, without progressing further.
This is unheard of and we are in the process of preparing this information for publication.'
