Orthodox Rabbi May be First ALS Patient Cured by Israeli Drug

Haredi leader Rabbi Refoel Shmulevitz, a victim of the motor neuron disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), may be the first known patient cured of ALS, which he was diagnosed with two years ago. ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrigs’ disease after the iconic baseball player who contracted it in 1939, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that features a gradual breakdown of muscle groups, paralysis, and respiratory problems, and is usually fatal within three to five years of diagnosis. Gehrig himself succumbed to the disease at age 37, but other famous victims, notably British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, have survived, albeit with no ability to move or communicate save with the use of the eyes. According to the American ALS association, the disease effects about 5,600 people a year, and has no known cause.

Doctors have until now been unable to cure or reverse the effects of ALS, and have been confined to slowing down the disease and easing its pain through various drug treatments. But that bleak diagnosis may change, through BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics, an Israeli biomedical company based in Petah Tikva that has been conducting trials on NurOwn, a treatment for ALS utilizing stem cell technology. NurOwn was found to have no side effects in January of this year, and was approved for clinical trials on human beings, as well as meriting orphan drug status by the FDA, which means that the drug is financially incentivized because it is for rare diseases. The hope is that NurOwn will be able to cure patients with even advanced stages of ALS, and return them to healthy living.

Such was the case with Rabbi Refoel Shmulevitz, a son of Haredi scion Rabbi Chaim Shmulevitz and a head of the Mir Yeshiva in Jerusalem. Rabbi Shmulevitz was diagnosed with the disease in 2010 at Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic, and as of one month of ago, his disease had progressed to an advanced stage, constraining Shmulevitz to a wheelchair and limiting his ability to speak and breathe. His condition was coupled with another rare disease, Myasthenia Gravis, and the resulting combination barred him from participating in clinical trials of NurOwn at Hadassah Hospital, where he is currently being held. Instead, he was approved for so-called “compassionate treatment”, intended for patients with no hope for recovery from the disease.

“Within a few weeks following injection with NurOwn cells, the patient showed dramatic improvement in a variety of functions including breathing, speech, walking, muscular strength, and overall well-being,” said Professor Dimitrios Karussis,  a neurologist at Hadassah and the principal investigator of BrainStorm’s clinical trials, to Israel’s Channel 2 News, adding “While we cannot draw scientific conclusions based on the outcome of an individual patient, these results are extremely encouraging.”

Rabbi Shmulevitz is thankful for regaining his ability to walk, talk, and even climb stairs, calling his recovery a miracle and profusely thanking God. The euphoria is shared by BrainStorm’s executives; Chairman of the Board Professor Avi Israeli said the company was “moved”  by the “remarkable results observed” and Chaim Lebovits, BrainStorm’s founder said “Its hard to describe the excitement that took hold of us as a result of the amazing results.”

It is far from clear if Shmulevitz’s results are indicative of the drug’s healing qualities, and the company is looking for more evidence of efficacy. BrainStorm expects to have results of its clinical trials conducted in Hadassah Hospital this month, and plans to conduct more clinical trials in the United States as well, through a joint effort with Massachusetts General Hospital and the University of Massachusetts’ Medical School. But if the drug indeed proves to be a viable treatment for ALS, the results would be game changing, and would help people afflicted with ALS across the world. “There is no doubt that a great drama is taking place here” said a Hadassah doctor to Channel 2.

  • Hello,

    My mom has been diagnosed with ALS and I am not able to recover from the shock I have gone through after knowing about the disease.
    Please help me with more information if there is any ray of hope. I’d greatly appreciate.

    Thankyou!

  • As a fellow sufferer from ALS diagnosed early in 2014 from symptoms that in retrospect began about mid-2012 I find Daniel Hales comments of great interest. At present I am taking Rilutek and have been doing so since April 2014 but it does have side effects so I am not entirely happy with it.
    Since there seems little alternative from Western Medicine though Cannabis derivatives are reputed to alleviate the condition to some degree – illegal I understand in the UK which is where I am located, I have sent my detailed symptoms etc. to China and paid for a 30 day course of a Traditional Chinese Medicine in the form of a specially compounded herbal tea (hoping it will reach me since it is not cheap. If it help I will consider going to Beijing for a consultation and treatment. I may also try acupuncture if it is recommended. However I intend also to contact Daniel Hale and to send him the Timeline of my symptoms etc. in the hope that it may further his research and I will of course be open to his suggestions should he hopefully contact me.

      Regarding testing for Lyme Disease:
      The screening test is the Elisa Test which may give a false negative 50% of the time, therefore, it is totally unreliable.
      The Western Blot Test is a better Test for Lyme Disease, however, most labs omit bands #31 and #34,
      These two bands are so specific for the Lyme spirochete that they were the ingredients for the Lyme Vaccine when it was available.
      If a patient tests negative on the Elisa Test and the Western Blot they still may have Lyme Disease because those tests are not valid.
      I recommend Igenex Lab – I have no connection to Igenex:
      Specifically order Igenex panels #6050 and #5090.
      Igenex will only communicate with a physician – Igenex will send the collecting tubes and a FedEx mailer.

  • My uncle has ALS since 2 month and he is getting worse and worse although at the beginning his doctor told us that he can last up to two years minimum because normally its from 2-5 years most people and very few exceptions up to 7 and 10 years , but the problem is I can not guarantee he is gonna make to the end of the year the way he looks and very day worse than the other ! please help

  • How could someone get into this study, My boyfriend has ALS and would like to beat it just like everyone else..Please Help

    • Alfred Miller,M.D.

      Lyme Disease can produce a clinical picture identical to ALS.
      The incidence of ALS is very high in areas where Lyme Disease is endemic.
      Every patient with ALS must be properly tested for Lyme Disease.
      Lyme Disease can be successfully treated with antibiotics.
      Proper testing for Lyme Disease is very important.
      The screening Elisa Test is unreliable.
      The Western Blot is preferred.
      Make sure the Western Blot Test includes Bands #31 & #34 as they are very specific for Lyme Disease.
      Many Western Blot Tests omit Bands #31 & #34 and may give a false negative invalid result.

      Lyme Disease -Induced Polyradiculopathy Mimicking Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

      Author information

      Abstract
      Abstract Importance: To describe a case of predominantly motor polyradiculopathy secondary to Lyme disease that can mimic motor neuron disease and has been rarely reported. Observations: A 64 year-old man presented with a one-month history of rapidly progressive weakness involving bulbar, upper limb and lower limb muscles. The physical examination showed widespread weakness, atrophy, fasciculation and brisk reflexes. The initial electrodiagnostic test showed widespread active and chronic denervation findings. The initial physical and electrodiagnostic findings were suggestive of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). However blood serology indicated possible Lyme disease. Thus, the patient was treated with doxycycline. The clinical and electrodiagnostic findings were resolved with the treatment. Conclusion and Relevance: The diagnosis of Lyme disease can be very challenging and it can mimic other neurological disorders such as ALS or Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS). Careful and detailed examination and investigation are required to confirm the diagnosis and to prevent misleading inaccurate diagnoses.

    • My mother has ALS. Her left hand has stopped working completely. Right hand is getting slowly affected. She is taking relutor. Doing physiotherapy. No improvement. Please help.

  • This is just a miracle from God. I am so happy for you, Rabbi. God Bless You.

  • Hope this is a sign of good things to come. It’s potentially miraculous developments like this that are intended to be the victims of BDS. Inexcusable and moronic.

  • Will the admins PLEASE weed out these idiots who post the prayer garbage there? It detracts from the real commenters. Geeez…

  • In Myasthenia gravis, antibodies are produced that block or destroy muscle receptor cells. Our nerves communicate with our muscles by releasing neurotransmitters (type of chemicals) which fit precisely into receptor sites on the muscle cells (muscle receptor cells).

  • I feel so bad that there are so many people suffering with this, and yet they get put on the backburner like they don’t even matter. There are too many geniuses and brilliant doctors/researchers in the world to tell me they can’t figure out a cure for this. And the FDA wants to take forever to test anything, even though people need it now! I truly hope a good therapy and cure become a reality sooner rather than later. I have faith in it.

  • i want to share a testimony, my names are hivcurecenter@gmail.com i,m from Tsentralnaya Ulitsa in Russia. i was diagnose of HIV/AIDS in 2013, when i slept with a man in an hotel, along Ulitsa street. i wept throughout the day when i was told i was HIV positive i wanted to commit suicide because i was upset. i was taking some anti-HIV drugs to keep me stable of not dieing, i saw several testimonies that people gave concerning how a man call dr shant tami heal there HIV/AIDS, i contacted him to help me and he told me to get some spiritual items, i did according to what he ask me and he woke me up about 11:59 and cast the healing spell and send me something to used, two days later he told me to diagnose my self again in any hospital, i went to different hospitals and the all gave me the same result that i,m HIV/AIDS negative. this man is really the best healer you can think of my mouth is full of testimony, what the doctors and the rest can not cure he cured it. dr shant tami is so real. you can contact dr shant tami via: hivcurecenter@gmail.com call him on +2348115435381

  • micheal davis

    i am Michael Davis from Los Angeles, CA. i want to share my testimony with you In 1985, at the age of 25, having heard so much about the ‘AIDS epidemic,’ I decided to take the test. I tested positive. I went for a second opinion and again the result was positive. Since I had heard and read that the virus could be dormant for a long time, I opted to eat well, exercise, take high quality vitamins and limit ‘risky sex.’ However, my gut feeling was that something wasn’t adding up with AIDS, and I almost immediately chose not to accept the virus as a detriment to my health.

    “Throughout the years I’ve lived my life almost as if AIDS didn’t exist but still gathered information from various sources. then i saw this great Dr Oseghale and contacted him with his email address and i told him the problem i was facing and i know he can help because i have heard so much about him so he gave me some instruction to follow which i followed accurately and he assured me that once he help me to cast a spiritual spell on my sickness that i will healed with 48hours and i had so much faith on him, he actually caste the spell on me and today i am back to my normal health i was tested and the prove it that i am HIV negative all thanks and appreciation goes to Dr Oseghale for helping me to cast away my HIV virus. i would like all of you who have similar problem to contact him today with his email address droseghalespelltemple@gmail.com or phone +2348075829942 so that he can help to restore your health

  • Astonished Sceptic

    Once again are the Israelis selling the world , the Brooklyn Bridge? This Rabbi had myasthenia gravies which can remit on its own or with immune modulation. Some forms resemble motor neurone disease. This is not the first time the Mayo Clinic would have misdiagnosed a patient.
    If these claims are true then the company(profit motive) should mKe the Rabbi’s medical records public Witt the patient’ permission. Otherwise it is propaganda to mislead people to invest in thus venture.
    For somebody with MND who can’t talk or walk or swallow, a few weeks is too short a time to recover no matter the the patient to have recovered so completely.The axons grow at the rate of millimeters per day.

    • Alfred Miller,M.D.

      What do you mean “once again the Israelis are selling the world the Brooklyn Bridge” ?

      “Profit Motive” ……

      These are anti-Semitic remarks and reflect badly on you!!!

      • Astonished Sceptic

        What is anti-Semitic? A blanket argument to shield the doings or misdeeds of Israelis. Are Israelis a special creation? Above criticism or Demi-gods? This Israeli company appears to be parading this Rabbi to convince poor ALS sufferers for advertisement purposes. If the company does not have sufficient knowledge of the disease they should not be in that business otherwise they are misleading the public.

    • I agree with your that these results sound bogus. When the article said he was also diagnosed as having myasthenia gravis, my first thought was “what a coincidence.” Of course, it is not impossible to have both. He could legitimately have an early case of ALS and then gotten an attack of MG superimposed. Remission of the MG (possibly due to additional treatment not mentioned such as plasmaphoresis or steroids) would account for the remarkable turn around. In that case he might still be dying of ALS. But even if you could somehow regenerate or replace all his motor neurons (the cells that die in ALS)it would take a very long time to get significant muscle regeneration.

      But I disagree with the “Once again…” remark. Israel has no greater penchant for deceptive advertising than most other countries. Such things are common throughout the world. People generally hype up the things that they do. Israel has a strong biomedical research industry so it’s no surprise that some dishonest claims would comes from that area. But in general Israel ranks pretty high in true scientific output. Israel has had 12 Nobel prize winners. Subtracting the 3 peace and 1 literature prize, this gives 8 scientific prizes (counting economics). This is from a (current) population of about 14 million. Japan, a very advanced nation, has produced 16 Nobel prizes. Japan’s population is 128 million, about 9 times that of Israel. So per capita, Israeli’s are about 4.5 times as productive of such extremely high level intellectual output. Japan has a good output. Israel’s is better. By the way, Sweden is even better–16 science Nobel prizes on a 9 million population base. Is that a hometown advantage? Maybe a little but the Swedes are very productive group of people and they have a strong education system. But they have been hit by a number of scandals lately including that of one of their telecomm companies dishonest practices in Uzbekistan and, of course, their banks hiding US tax evasion. But it would be silly to complain of yet another scam from Sweden. No nation is immune.

      Personally, I avoid using labels such as anti-Semitic because I think it stifles thoughtful discussion. But I understand how someone could get upset by the fact that a predominantly Jewish country is singled out for the type of activity done everywhere. If every time some legitimate advance in science or engineering came from Israel (which happens a lot) I were to say “Another example of the outstanding work of those intelligent and public spirited Israelis” someone would probably accuse me of positive bias toward Jews. So anyone who gratuitously singles out Israel for criticism when something bad comes from Israel should not be surprised that someone complains of negative bias toward Jews (which really is anti-Semitism amount to).

      By the way, the NurOwn cells may still be a very valuable treatment even though I doubt they did the heavy lifting in this man’s remarkable (supposed) discover. If they really are a valuable treatment, I’m going to “Another great scientific success for those remarkable Israelis.” But if they are not a useful treatment, they simply join the list of a multitude of treatments which have failed. Let’s give them a little credit even for trying.

      • Richard Couzens

        The Jewish population of Israel is approximately 6 million; Jews worldwide, approximately 15 million.

        I trust remainder of comments is more accurate.

    • Glass half full

      Well, I hope you will bite your tongue when you discover that this is true and not some “profit motive.” Hadassah Hospitals in Jerusalem have made amazing strides in Alzheimer’s research and I have no doubt that this is true and real progression in finding a cure for ALS.

      The article clearly states that this is just one patient, but that they hope it is a good sign for future trials. So they are not “parading” this one patient and their drug as being the end all drug. And I do believe that your comments are anti-Semitic, but that’s just my opinion.

      The U.S. is so slow and reluctant to perform stem cell research, but Israel has a relationship where they share their medical findings. Come on, man, let’s look at this as a glass half full, not empty for now!

  • My husband was recently diagnosed with ALS and is able to travel. I would love more information about NurOwn cell treatment and for him to participate in your investigative study.

  • I am not promoting any cure for any disease.

    However, stress affects the caretaker as well as the patient.

    I have developed a simple hands-on treatment to alleviate headaches, pain and stress and this treatment can be performed at home several times a day.

  • I spent 22 years in the Army and retired 1 July 1992. I will make this a short testimony. I lost my voice on March 6,2011. My voice went silent. Then due to other symptoms getting worse, muscle weakness and muscle cramps in legs, feet, and hands, sometimes I would fall, I had a wavy tongue, tremors(fasculations) in tongue, it got to where I could not hold anything in my hands, could not shave, brush my teeth, comb my hair, button my shirt, tie my shoes, etc, swallowing, chewing, chocking,and eating was a problem, energy level decreased, and twitching in right arm. After several tests was done,very painful test, I was diagnosed/confirmed with Bulbar ALS Onset. My life changed for ever.I was put on Rilutek ALS medicine. I am a Christian and I put my Trust in God for healing. I grew stronger in the Lord, I stayed focus in God’s Word, my Faith got stronger, I spent a lot of time on my knees praying, I leaned to trust more in Jesus. I learned to trust more in God, I leaned to depend more upon His Word. The Holy Spirit grew stronger in me. I had Faith that God would heal me. I didn’t know how, where, when, but I knew God could heal me. Lords Willing, I will be healed. I would tell the doctors and staff that God has a place, time, date, for me to be healed. I told them I would talk again and I would be healed of ALS.I stayed POSITIVE. I stayed STRONG. On December 13,2011, I had a doctors appointment. After several hours there, I was told that there was nothing they could do for me. But I was not ready to quit, I kept sitting there for I did not want to quit. Several times my wife and I sit there and prayed. When they were finish, GOD WAS NOT. Later on in the room, Jesus reach down and touch me, I was healed. This was MIRACLES. I started talking, I talk for the first time in 10 months. I was healed of ALS SYMPTOMS AND MY VOICE WAS HEALED. Itold the people in the room that they just witness MIRACLES. They said, yes it was Miracles. I AM FREE OF ALS SYMPTOMS AND MY VOICE IS GOOD. GOD CAN HEAL ALS. MAN CAN ONLY DO WHAT GOD ALLOWS TO BE DONE. GOD will send a cure and treatment for ALS. HOW? WHEN? SOON! I do not know but God knows. A CURE AND TREATMENT IS COMING FOR ALS. NEVER GIVE UP.NEVER GIVE UP. PUT YOUR TRUST,FAITH,BELIEVE AND HOPE IN JESUS CHRIST. PRAY.PRAY.PRAY. ALS is very dear to my heart. I am praying for all on the pALS and families. I love all. All are in my hearts and prayers. I will never forget all. Hang in there, Help is on the way, A cure and treatment is coming soon. God bless all. Love all.

      Jesus did not cure your ALS. Stop telling people stupid stories like this.

      Larry Sehn,

      Jesus does heal! Praise be to God from whom all blessings flow….There are many, many churches reporting an ‘outbreak’ of healings from the Toronto Airport church in Toronto, Canada to Bethel Church in Redding, California and many, many more. In parts of Africa healings are common place. Many of these have been verified and yet the sceptics will never have enough evidence to satisfy. “As for my and my house we will serve the Lord” Joshua 24:15
      A dear, dear friend of mine is battling this illness. Yesterday two of us got together to pray. We are hoping for a miracle.
      Thank you for being bold enough to share this message. Blessings to you and your house.

    • Peter Kirwood

      I would definatly like to hear more about

    • Peter Kirwood

      That is a fantastic testimony to the power of god .it sounds like you spent considerable time praying I suppose even fasting . I believe it might be the go for me.
      You must have put a lot of time into prayer with your wife . I have struggled with religion for many decades and have come to the conclusion that it is a personal thing between myself and god that will cure me
      Yours
      Scincerely

    • Mathew Thomas

      My mother( name- Mariamma Thomas) is having a slur while talking and difficult in swallowing for the last 2 years. She is diagonised with MND. We believe in Jesus our savior will come down and touch her and heal her…. Please pray for her to get a complete cure in the name of Jesus.

    • Does that mean that every non-Christan, everyone who does not pray to Jesus Christ has no chance of a cure?

      It’s fortunate that that concept was not promoted, and doctors and researchers did not abandon their efforts in finding a small pox vaccine, a polio vaccine, et al.

  • Hello, I am sorry about your fight with ALS. I am a son of a person with ALS. I wanted to do something about ALS for him and for others like him. However, I need help, and I want to make sure that others like my father are interested in this project.
    Please visit ALSFight.com and feel free to provide feedback.
    Thank you.

  • Hello Sir your news of improvement from Nurown trail Has after 3 year given my family hope, my dad has mnd and is getting worse we are desperate for help if this hospital is still doing trails please could you send me information on how enrol my dad we really need you help I have tired so hard for a few years and this is the only hope I have come across to make him better many thanks

  • My father is suffering the ALS illness since 2007 please update me about treatment.

    you are highly appreciated.

    thanks

  • my father has very advanced ALS. He was diagnosed a month ago. unable to speak..needs ventilator for breathing,..and feeding tube is being put in…Please send me information on this new drug. We are in United States….Thank you

  • Patsy Sheffield

    My daughter, Keri Sheffield, was diagnosed at the age of 28 in 2009 with ALS and has been bedridden since August 2010 and is no longer able to talk, eat or move and takes 24-hour care on a ventilator. We do believe in God’s healing as we have asked for but sometimes He opens doors that we must look into along the way and I would most certainly appreciate and would follow through on any known cure that is available. Any info and consideration for a chance to have a “normal” life again would be greatly acknowledged and praised!!! A loving, desperate and sleep deprived mother!!!!!

      Lyme Disease -Induced Polyradiculopathy Mimicking Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

      Author information

      Abstract
      Abstract Importance: To describe a case of predominantly motor polyradiculopathy secondary to Lyme disease that can mimic motor neuron disease and has been rarely reported. Observations: A 64 year-old man presented with a one-month history of rapidly progressive weakness involving bulbar, upper limb and lower limb muscles. The physical examination showed widespread weakness, atrophy, fasciculation and brisk reflexes. The initial electrodiagnostic test showed widespread active and chronic denervation findings. The initial physical and electrodiagnostic findings were suggestive of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). However blood serology indicated possible Lyme disease. Thus, the patient was treated with doxycycline. The clinical and electrodiagnostic findings were resolved with the treatment. Conclusion and Relevance: The diagnosis of Lyme disease can be very challenging and it can mimic other neurological disorders such as ALS or Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS). Careful and detailed examination and investigation are required to confirm the diagnosis and to prevent misleading inaccurate diagnoses.

      • My mother was diagnosed with bulbar ALS a few years ago in south America in Uruguay. she is no longer able to speak or eat. feeding tubes were placed a few moths ago. Could u name the specific blood test that are needed in order to look for Lyme disease? this disease is not common in Uruguay and obodu has any idea, hence why she was treated in Argentina instead. however it is rare there too and they are clueless. after i read your post i start to think that may be she was never test in her blood test for this also. at this point even if she was diagnosed with this new disease as well at least would give us hope if anything at all. We are looking desperate searching for the treatment in Israel but tried several times contacting them via email and phone.

        thank you for any information you can provide. again, thank you for your time

    • Alfred Miller,M.D.

      Infection with Lyme Disease can present and progress EXACTLY the SAME as ALS.

      The screening Elisa Test for Lyme Disease may give a false negative.

      Every patient with ALS should be tested with a proper Western Blot Test.
      Some Western Blot Tests omit Bands #31 and #34, make sure these are included.

      Lyme Disease infection can be treated with antibiotics and is curable !

      The incidence of ALS is very high in locations where Lyme Disease is endemic.

  • MandynJHC@yahoo.com Please send info!! thanks!

  • Dear Sir, If this is true ,Thank to to the almight god,Please my mother is suffering from ALS & she is taking the medicine Rituzole 50mg , If you could provide me the details I am very much intrested for the treatment of my mother please do replay me…

    i am desperate for a cure my email address is tutul8111@yahoo.com

    • Hi everyone. In 2006 I was diagnosed with Stage III Lyme disease which many are saying is closely tied to ALS. In fact, I had many of the ALS symptoms in addition to dozens of others. I WAS slowly dying…painfully. I want to first and foremost give praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for having mercy on me and allowing me to recover quite a bit (not completely, but that’s partly my fault – old habits). I want to let you know of something that helped me. AND, I want to be clear that I am NOT a distributor of this product at all, but it’s what I believe helped me to get through the disease. I understand the turmoil that many of you are facing. In fact, I’ve had kind of a recent relapse and I’m about to start the protocol again. It’s a colloidal silver product that by far is the very best made. Nothing comes close and once you read the science behind it, you’ll understand why. I’ve spoken at length with the very knowledgeable creator who told me of remarkable success stories with supposedly “incurable” disease. However he’s unable to publish his results due to AMA suppression. Anyway, I’m simply going to give you the product name and company. It’s up to you to do your due diligence and determine if it’s something you want to try. I’m about to order my 90 day supply and go full bore since I was remiss about my prevention doses for the last year. Company: Purest Colloids. Product: MesoSilver. If it does help you, make sure to give God the glory! Peace be with you.

    • Hi, my dad has ALS i have so many questions? To me there are too many peoplewith ALS it has to be water and food related.pesticides, roundup,etc…i asked my dad he always drank tap water and been eating GMO food for years, chemicals on grass fornmmany yrs. Please get back to me after asking loved ones. Canxer the biggest money making disease. We are being poisioned air food water supply. Eat organic. Farm to table local , make sure oeganic .reading sone ibfo on it they say possible pesticides, agent orange??? If its not inheritedand al it of pple ate being affected then its our food n water

      • Sue, Yes I agree with you. It is from the air, water, food with chemical in it for longer shelf life. Our FDA is sitting on a cure, or how can they say that these disease will be cured in 2025. We need something now. ALS is over 150 years old, and the research people have lost their passion in finding a cure in the US. They look forward to donations, fundraisers and grants to pizz away. We need a noted celebrity to be the spokesman like Liz Taylor was for AIDS. Not a comedian or ball player that no one ever heard about. We all have to get after our congressmen and start to demand a cure. This is way to long to wait for a cure, as more people are getting it and don’t know it.

Please reply as soon as possible. Thank you, God Bless

  • I am so sorry to be the “bad” guy here but to give me or my husband any kid of hope is killing us more then the ALS. Another cure–yeah right! Here we sit watching my husband die a piece at a time–it is sick.As far as I know ther eis no cure or we would be on top of it. If you do have a cure then please be a human and share it with us!

    • My husband was diagnosed with ALS in August 2008.He is now in a wheelchair his speech is a little slurred and his hands are not working very well.All I can say is don’t spend the money on stuff that they say will help,because it won’t.God and a positive attitude will keep you alive.Not the drug Rilotek my husband has never used it.God Bless and hang in there !

  • I don’t mean to be rude to all the people suffering from this terrible disease, I have so much respect for all of you. It makes no sense to me that this disease has been around for such a long time yet there has been basically zero progress as to finding a definite cause or cure to it. There are too many smart people in this world for there not to be. Either nobody cares or something is being hidden from the public due to money reasons. Things just don’t add up for me..

    • Couldn’t the same be said for cancer?

      • frank greenfield

        No, I don’t believe so. Als with only a minute
        chance of survival is not the same as cancer. Rather
        cancer ranges from nearly 90 percent of skin cancer
        cases for recovery to only 20 percent recovery with
        pancreatic cancer. In many cases cancer patients live with much hope as their condition usually doesn’t deteriorate until the very end. on the other
        hand als is demonic monster crippling the patient from the word go.To all als patients you are my true heroes and I hope and pray that there will be
        a cure soon.

    • leonard flynn

      I agree 100% with what you wrote but its my hope that the time of a cure is here when I see and think about all the people affected from ALS it breaks my heart! I have a life long friend only 47 years old and he just informed me that he has ALS about 5 months ago and already hes loosing mobility of his arms and legs im heart broken to say the least for every one suffering from from ALS and im hoping things like money or power will not stand in the way of a cure. to all those suffering from ALS my heart and thoughts go out to you all keep praying god will answer you may god hold you all up and give you strength may he bless you and cure you AMEN.

  • MY father passed away last week due to the ALS disease after a long battling for about 2 and half years. he tried Japan and China for stem cells but it made him even worse. The best option is to be there for eachother through these moments and accept the fact and hand it to god.

    I am in third week of trying L-serine on my own, 2500mg 3x per day. I have been feeling good, but not sure yet if it is helping.

  • This is a long awaited news. My husband was diagnosed of ALS two years ago. It’s been tough for the family but I know he is going through a terrible struggle. I will be great-full if he could be enlisted in the trial. My email is mabel_abote@yahoo.com.

  • I (like many others who’ve commented on this page)have a member of my immediate family (my father) who has MND/ALS.

    What I would like to know is, can the treatment that was given to this rabbi be given to ordinary members of the public including those who live outside of Israel?

    Furthermore, can someone please tell me how I can contact these researchers to try to enroll my father in these trials? He’s lost the use of both arms, his legs are very weak and he cannot walk around the house without support, he can’t climb stairs. This could be life changing as it has some credibility. My father,like everyone who’s been diagnosed with this disease, does not deserve this and he definitely deserves a shot at this treatment, as does everybody with terminal ALS/MND.

    Is anybody willing to help me out?

    • Hi my name is Sheila and I have ALS now for a year and Im going to Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic,to get treatment have you had ALS for a long time I know 2 years are less if so call the clinic at st marys hospital i hope this help they have 9 people right now and they are doing 25 people good luck

      • I am a 33 yr old male and have been recently diagnosed with ALS. The last couple months have been a struggle for me for walking and just doing normal activities. I would love the chance to try this treatment! Thanks for the consideration!

  • This news story is a year old. Does anyone know whether this Rabbi is still alive. I am conducting a study on ALS for my university and am gathering some more information about the survivors of this disease.

    • Avrohom Chakimai

      The Rabbi is alive and doing reasonably well!

    • There is a couple of nature Drs that are treating people with ALS in Hendersonville tenn by the names of Dale and Gale Hammond. They seem to be having good results.

      • harlan and denise

        my wife is doing ok, because of hyperbaric treatments and ozone therapy, but still finds it tought to deal with muscle weakness and weight loss, but it has stopped the progression from being worse. thanks for all your home, dr dale hammond.

  • This treatment is as yet completely unproven for any form of Motor Neurone Disease. The purpose of this primary trial was to test the safety of the drug. We do not know how many patients were involved, we do not know if this patient received the treatment or the placebo.

    What I do know is the following:

    1. Stem Cell Therapy is currently only proven for the treatment of Leukemia
    2. Mr Shulevitz is suffereing from ALS, and also from Myasenthia Gravis, an auto-immune condition that causes paralysis. It is not which of the two conditions improved after the trial took place.
    3. No-one should have to pay for unproven treatment
    4. Daniel R. Hale is a spammer who has been making a nuisance of himself on Twitter. All of my #MNDFriends have blocked him and reported him for spamming

    So, calm down and stop over-reacting. We will find a cure for all forms of MND one day, and when it is found it will be published in medical journals and circulated in the correct way. Instead of throwing money at unscrupulous practitioners of unproven medicine, give your money to charities and foundations who support real research.

    My father died of ALS in February of this year. I was hopeful that a cure might be found in time to save him, but now I am hopeful that a cure will be found so that fewer families will have to go through what mine have in the last 14 months.

    • Daniel R. Hale and the research completed in Colorado can now show how ALS fuels it’s own biochemistry. This research is the ONLY research in the world at this time which can show the CAUSE of ALS and what TRIGGERS this in a natural form. Without knowing the CAUSE there can never be ANY recovery from ALS. Science medicine has chased the many tails (residual effects) of ALS for much to long with 100% failure. Colorado research was willing to go on a biochemical Lewis and Clark journey to find the cause and therefore show a clear path to a CURE in the next four months. Mr. Hale was turned down for assistance in 2008 by the Gates Foundation and used his own assets to accomplish this. A little respect is warrented here.

    • It should also be noted that Colorado ALS research can now show that stem cell therapy cannot be effective unless the biochemistry that ALS represents is corrected. This research can now show how ALS attacks with two methods using a contributing factor for both fronts. This allows ALS to fuel itself and resist ANY drug treatment thrown at it. Any expectation of recovery from ALS now must go through this research or it will not arrive. BRUTAL HONESTY!

      • First of all contratulations to the Rabbi. God bless him.

        Responding to Mr. Hale, If you are talking about oxidative stress, you are not the only one that knows ALL about that. I think you have a good starting point that is circular logic. You do not know the cause of ALS. Because I do know the cause, I am able to discern that from your comments which are inconsistent with the cause. Your remarks show me that you do not understand the entire process from beginning to end.

        Let’s not just talk about the 90% non-familial ALS. If one truely knows the cause, then that person can explain the 90% AND the 10% that is “familial”. I can do that. Ever notice a link that those affected are usually in very good physical shape?

        You are correct that stem cells are a bandaid, but sometimes bandaids work for a while until a person can get total and complete cure. You are correct that the cause is an injury.

        Someone who understands the entire process from beginning to end will also be able to explain the late onset which is NOT a result of the time to accumulate that damage or the insult.

        One would also need to explain the sex ratio being 20% higher for males. I can do that.

        One would also have to be able to explain the link to the other neurodegenerative diseases and the immune-mediated diseases and to autism. I most certainly can explain all of these. There is one cause common to all of these conditions.

        I am not speaking of stress.

        Someone who understood completely the pathogenesis of ALS would also have to be able to explain all of the symptoms of autism including the regression, the seizures and digestive issues, the male:female ratio and the rates which are increasing in number inconsistent with a genetic cause, the sensory integration disorders,the “apparent” link to vaccines. They would also have to be able to explain the studies showing a genetic link. They would have to be able to explain why there is a pattern to the symptoms.

        Someone who truely understood the etiology of ALS could also explain the cause of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s and explain why each occurs. The person could also explain why Lupus results mostly in females.

        Additionally, I can predict autism before a child is ever conceived. And I can explain how autism can be cured in all of its forms.

        I discovered the cure for autism 17+ years ago and have been accumulating support for my theory since then. I made predictions years ago about the rise in autism (which proved out), people who would be affected before they were born (and they were).

        Autism, ALS, MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Lupus, Fibromyalgia are predictable, preventable, treatable and curable.

        My theory, research and supporting evidence is for sale. I am asking $375 million for information on the cause and an additional $250 million for information on prevention and cure.

        I am offering a 10% commission to anyone who brings the ultimate buyer minus legal fees and subject to some restrictions

        I can be reached at contact@autismcauseandcure.com
        Serious inquiries only, please.

        I’m also making a prediction now that ALS in women will increase percentage wise to where it’s almost equal to the rate in men. Also, that ALS will appear in younger people overall and that the overall rate will creep up a little bit.

  • Is it still available? I would appreciate it if someone concerned will reply to me.

    Hello,
    My father Ronald has had ALS for five years, he is a fighter and continues to fight through this horrific disease. If anyone could email me back so we could begin the trials that would be amazing! He is towards the ending stages of his life and this would be certainly a miracle. Thank you so much! -Leah Nepomuceno

  • how do we get this treatment? my husband has ALS and we have several people in our life with it too!

  • My son suffering fron Brain Neuro degenerative disease, causes dystonia, limiting his walk & sppech plus also suffering from tremors.

    Pl suggest medicine for him.

  • Mr.Andy best
    I am really pleased with this service. I am one of those people who said,“I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this website and Dr anunu. I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost amanda in one of our stupid, petty fights (usually started by yours truly), I thought I had lost everything. And when I was at my most desperate, you didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know , IT WORKS!! Amanda and will are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful for . Dr anunu kindness, sympathy, and extension of services to me in a real time of need thank you anunuspelltemple@ymail.com Sincerely, posted by Andy Best

      We are from Holland.

      Please!!! Help….

      • This treatment is not yet proven. Stem Cell Treatment is only currently proven for the treatment of Leukemia. Do not pay anybody for stem cell treatment for MND/ALS, they are all con artists.

        • You say horrible things to families only wanting hope.. Give money to huge companies who take it and dont cure, cancer for instance.
          How about telling us what worked for your Dad not what didnt. Be angry at the disease not poeple looking for hope.
          Drs are educated by books and past research. You may not believe in miracles. your father would want you to live well.

  • The medical advances in Israeli research make me proud to be Israeli. My wife is a life-long member of Hadassah Hospital. It is a high honor to be affiliated with an institution that is at the forefront of research such is depicted in this article. to Rabbi Refoel Shmulevitz: !רפואה שלמה והחלמה מהירה

  • I am a first year college student and my mother has had ALS for going on 5 years. This article has really touched my heart. My mother having ALS has had not only a great impact on her life, but mine and younger brothers as well. I am truly excited about what is to come of these clinicals. I pray to God every night and I will continue to do so. I believe that if this is meant to be, it will be. What a wonderful finding! I pray that a blessing proceeds in this case. It will sure be life changing for many families across the nation. God bless you all, keep smiling. Frowning will never help!

    • God bless you for having such a possitive outlook. ALS took my dads life 5 years ago. He fought long and hard for 10 years. He too, had a very positive outlook through out his whole thing. So many people tell me today that my dad inspired them so! To keep your head up high in the mist of such an ugly illness is rare and one true testimony that happiness is a choice, and we will choose how to deal with these crappy cards we have been dealt… I believe that people who see you go through this journey with your mom and remain positive will all be moved and learn a very valuable life lesson by your example. God Bless…

  • Before we all start going crazy, booking flights to Tel Aviv and lobbying the Israeli Health Ministry, it’s important to consider the three following points:

    1. As well as ALS, Mr Shmulevitz also suffers from an auto-immune condition that causes paralysis. It is unclear which of the two conditions the NurOwn actually treated.

    2. It is not known whether or not Mr Shmulevitz was part of the control group for the trial.

    3. Brainstorm Therapeutics have yet to publish the results of any of their trials in any reputable or accredited Medical Journals

    Also bear in mind that Stem Cell Treatment is currently UNPROVEN for the treatment of anything except Leukaemia, and that in very rare cases the onset of ALS will stop of it’s own accord

  • I happen to live in Israel and it just so happens that my wonderful father has this horrific disease, ALS. We have made many phone calls directly to Hadassah Hospital where they are currently conducting phase 2 of their clinical trial. We desperately wanted my father to become apart of the clinical trial here in Israel. Here is what they told us. 1) second phase is full 2) they took only 3 compassionate cases. They can’t reveal that status of their patients current progress, but it seems good. 3)If you were even able to be in the clinical trial, you have to be a citizen of Israel. 4) They are in the process of starting a clinical trial in MA, USA. If I am not mistaken, they are only taking 12 canidates.

    God bless and may there be a cure immediately!!

  • hi,that takes me some hope because i suffer of it so since 2008 and all what i need really is if there`s a good news please don`t forget me ,thanks

  • My husband Jack has been living with ALS for 13 years. He is completely disable. I truly believe there is a different environmental factor. He grew up across the street for John Roebling Steel Mill. It was the 3rd worst contaminated site in the US. He also painted cars for a living. Roebling is only 12 streets big and has had many documented cases of ALS. I told his Drs here but no one investigated. I would live to be updated on this. He is the father of 5 sons ages 31 to 14. The grandfather of 3. So much life to live. Hope is the main reason he c
    Keeps going. We truly believe there will be or is a cure!

  • My research on A.L.S. started in 1998 is now complete. A.L.S. has been completely solved and my research is being ignored by the Medical Community. This research is not a scam or a fraud! It warrants the attention of everyone in the world dealing with this tragedy and the ripple effect on loved ones. Until this research is seen and understood A.L.S. will never be stopped.

    • Could you please share what is the solution I will appreciate this as my sister a mother of two young children is suffering from this disease. please help.

      • Hi my name is Sheila and I have ALS now for a year and Im going to Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic,to get treatment have you had ALS for a long time I know 2 years are less if so call the clinic at st marys hospital i hope this help they have 9 people right now and they are doing 25 people good luck
        and the treatment NurOwn GOD BLESS

    • Daniel, please submit your research to ALS Untangled so that it can be properly reviewed. The ALS community is very skeptical because we are tired of getting our hopes up only to have them dashed. Do you have any medical background? Why should we take your research seriously?

      • Karen, did you ever get a reply or any comment.

      • Karen, recent findings in my research can now show how ALS attacks with two methods using a contributing factor,thus resisting ANY treatment thrown at it,especially in a random form. Including stem cell therapy. This shows a clear path to a CURE for ALS instead of treatments that continue to fail.You must know the CAUSE of ALS and what TRIGGERS this to occur or correcting this biochemistry is impossible. This research can now explain ALS in FULL and there all research must now come from this direction or it has no chance.

        • If the results of your research are so conclusive, share them. Personally, I will always be sceptical of people who try to solicit business via a yahoo.com e-mail address. It’s a practice used by thousands of Nigerian 419 Scammers and does not inspire confidence.

          If there is any truth to any of your claims, contact one of the many charities and foundations who support and champion research into all forms of Motor Neurone Disease. I’m sure their research teams would be happy to talk to you.

          If, on the other hand, you are the Snake Oil Merchant that I suspect you to be, carry on baiting desperate people via internet message boards.

      • It should also be noted that Colorao research on ALS was started and completed to find the CAUSE and what TRIGGERS this in a natural form. Not to treat it with random therapys that this research can show WILL NOT work.This recent find shows that ALS has the ability to fuel it’s OWN biochemistry leaving very little wiggle room for correcting it. If you do not know the CAUSE of ALS then you will NOT be able to correct it. EVER! This is the plain truth of it.All ALS research that has any expectation of success now goes through Colorado or it never arrives. Brutal honesty!

    • I was diagnosed with ALS since mid 2010.Lately I felt weaker, more difficulty moving around
      I pray every day for a cure for that terrible disease.Please let me know of there is any hope

      • Mr Hale, how many ALS people are you treating, and are getting a good response. This is surely a major break thru. I have ALS and I would likely ttry your remade

        Thanking You

  • That’s if your insurance will cover the coast of the medicine. My brother has been tested a couple of times for Lyme and came up positive. Started oral antibiotics then IV antibiotics for about 8mo but only got worse. He has been sen by a couple of top neurologist and all said “they do not believe his symptoms are from Lyme but ALS” with that diagnoses insurance will not cover his Lyme meds. They have gone through there life savings (thousands!) now because of medical politics my brother of 58yrs old is hooked up to a vent and G-Tube and can not talk or move. He is dying right before our eyes… What can this family do next? We need money and treatment for our brother! HELP!

  • I was diagnosed with ALS last year in September. I first went to my dentist thinking that something was wrong with a muscle in my mouth…I have a jaw joint problem. He couldn’t find anything. I also play an oboe (not any more) and I was referred to a specialist who said one side of my vocal cord was not working. He diagnosed it as a panic attack. My voice got worse. I finally was referred to a neurologist who diagnosed it as ALS. I can no longer swallow food. I have a feeding tube. I take the drug Rilutek which I understand is not a cure, but will help to extend ones life. A friend sent me an article about Lyme Disease…I didn’t have the test, but I did find someone who prescribed an antibiotic without any results. So, I read about the article about the Rabbi. So, I am asking if there is a treatment in the U.S. or Canada that I could get this new treatment.

  • I was diagnosed with ALS last year in September. It has affected my voice, my ability to eat, and I get very tired when I do too much. I have a feeding tube. Is there any place that I can get treatment? I read that Lyme Disease could possibly be a cause. However, I did not have the Lyme Disease test, but took a course of antibiotics with no relief. I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. Would someone please contact me about treatment..

    • How are u doing Paula? My father just diagnosed over a week ago. Question for u, have u ever been on statins? Cholesterol lowering meds? There are so many people with als saying they think the cholesterol meds caused or triggered it. My father was on them and stopped the day he was diagnosed, and we started to see a naturopath and acupuncturist. Keep me posted : korolisangela@hotmail.com

  • My mom has ALS and if there is anything we can do to get her on this trial would be the best! Se has 6 kids and numerous grand children! She is only 64. She was officially diagnosed at the Mayo Clinic on Minnesota. Please god have hope! She is the greatest person know!!

    • Your Mom must be tested to rule out an infectious cause.
      The Mayo Clinic is great but when it comes to Lyme disease the Mayo Clinic has on “blinders”.
      Please refer to my previous entries regarding proper testing.
      Alfred Miller,M.D.

      • My Mom was tested at 3 different hospitals. The mayo clinic was the last resort. She is was also tested at St. Vincent’s and Billings Clinic in Billings, MT. It has really started to affect her speech lately. She is still able to walk with a lot of help but it primarily in a motorized wheel chair. If there’s anything anyone can do please help.

  • Where were the stem cells harvested from? A fetus? An umbilical cord?

  • what are early tests and preventions that i can start doing while waiting on my docs to figure out what’s happening with me?

    • Alfred Miller

      An infectious cause must be considered and ruled out.
      Lyme Disease can produce the same clinical picture as ALS.
      Suggest getting tested as follows:
      Igenex Lab panels # 6050 and # 5090.
      If positive the treatment with antibiotics will cure the infection.
      Alfred Miller,M.D.

  • been reading about als , my grandma was diagnosed and suffered from this for 22years and was a bedpatient. i’ve been having lots of similar symtoms but have not been diagnosed…..what should i do first? my doc keeps sending me to get somekind of coroided mri/ultrasound, tired of going and spending too much for something they’re guessing on…please help, if i can catch this early it may help me sooner than later…thank you for your time and understanding

    • Have you had an EMG test? I received 3 of then as well as MRIs, but I believe the EMG is the preferred method. I was told there is no bio marker that can be used to define a positive clinical diagnosis. All the tests I received were used to rule out other conditions .

  • I’m happy for Rabbi. I wish for successful clinical trials and availability of this treatment for all the affected people.

    My friend recently got diagonised with this dangerous disease and I’m sure he will one day get to his normal life..

  • I have a dear friend who has been diagnosed with ALS. He is in his 8th year with the disease and has 20% lung capacity. I understand he has been put on a list so when the approval by the FDA comes through, he may or may not be chosen as a candidate. I pray this approval comes soon. He is 59 years old and can’t move. Please Dear God, rush the FDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • My dad was diagnosed with ALS june 2012 he’s not getting better he can hardly walk now someone please help. I can’t believe there is nothing that can be done and just sit back and see him get worse. It hurts seeing my dad like this :( how do we get this NurOwn?

      My 24 year old daughter was diagnosed with motor neurone disease inferior.
      How can she get this treatment?
      We live in Brazil, here is this treatment?

      Minha filha de 24 anos, foi diagnosticada com doença do neurônio motor inferior.
      Como ela pode receber esse tratamento?

      • Motor neuron disease may be caused by an infection.
        It is important to rule out an infection rather than assume an unknown cause.
        Infections respond to antibiotics.
        Tick-borne diseases may be the cause of Motor Neuron Disease.
        Every patient should have a Western Blot Test for Lyme Disease and also should be tested for Bartonella,Babesia, and Erlichia – all are carried by the same tick.
        Do not do the Elisa Test as its results are unreliable and may produce false negatives.
        Alfred Miller,M.D.

        • Hello Dr Miller,
          Is there any cure or something that will stop the progression of ALS? We are desperate to find something. A friend has been diagnosed and is getting worse each day.
          Thank you!
          Stina in Sweden.

        • Dr Miller,
          My brother, was stung by a bee, I believe it was a yellow
          jacket, back on July 25, 2012.
          He had an extremely severe allergic reaction to that sting.
          I had to take him to the emergency room the very next day.
          He was stung on his ring finger and afterwards, his left hand
          swelled up to about 2 to 3 times it’s normal size. Then the
          swelling started to travel up his arm.
          At the begining of October, last year, he began having
          difficulty buttoning his shirt. As the months went by his
          condition got worse. He was diagnosed with ALS on
          June 13 of this year. Do you think that that bee sting could have
          possibly triggered this condition???

      I understand what everyone is going thu my dad has als and it hurts seeing him sick like that he can’t walk and his arms gave out already he can’t do anything for himself anymore i never thought at the age of 24 that i would be going thu this with my dad its very hard on my family and i . I just wish there was anything we could do to help all the families fighting this terrible disease

      • Stephanie, I emailed you from San Diego. You know my number. What I learned working with Kevin was invaluable. The friend of Kevin’s who I told you about was a total pain in my ass the whole time I was there. He was constantly trying to see my research and because of this I could not do everything I wanted to with Kevin. I have emailed Kevin and let him know why I had to leave. And that I will come back minus his nosy friend. I am now in Colorado and still willing to come help you and your dad.But I cannot disclose my research. Please understand that. You still need the sauna installed.This was very important in cleaning bad molecules out of Kevin’s body. But there is much more to this and you need to call me or I cannot help you. Dan

    • People, please listen to me … I was cured of a brain aneurysm , and I know someone else from cancer, and I can send you links from people who have been cured from ALS….through deep faith and prayer healing. If you truly love your family members or friends who are sick, you need to look into this. These are not isolated cases, do research first if you want to be closed minded and think we know it all. I now give praise to the Almighty through Jesus.

      If you want these links, my email is mayofgold@yahoo.com
      God bless,

      • How can you possibly assert that als was cured in these patients purely through deep faith and prayer healing. While they may have been cured of als, it would be extremely ignorant and biased to assert that their diseases were ameliorated purely due to prayer healing without considering the biological healing processes of the body and the medicine and treatments they mustve taken. Furthermore, i can easily say, without needing to find corroborative empirical evidence, that many other als victims have prayed to god and have not been cured of the disease. the number of these unfortunate people would far, far outweigh the people who have been supposedly and ‘anecdotally’ cured through religious prayers. I have no doubt that a placebo effect does exist in helping people to recover from diseases, but this placebo effect is linked to the natural can be explained on scientific and biological grounds.

      • Would you please contact me if its true what you wrote on http://www.algemeiner.com?

  • Soon they will have a electrode implant that stops all disease, slows aging and gives people the perfect mood balance at all times, this will be an implant and say hello to the MARK of the BEAST, all who get this are thrown into hell forever because they sought a machine to give them peace and not the Lord and God. So far medicine has helped, its hurt some, but helped as well I suppose but a time is coming where the greatest deception in the world will come like a white horse to sweep people away but its all a lie.

    • Look up a guy by the name of Joel Wallach – all diseases are cured by taking the essential 90 vitamins/minerals/nutrients. Take a look at the following page: http://fountain-ofyouth.com/30min.htm

      Here is an excerpt of what is says: “Multiple Sclerosis, your asking if oxygen will help Multiple Sclerosis. And the answer is sure it will help, but you have to do other things. Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson disease , and ALS or Lou Garrets disease. Apparently now are all the same. It just depends on the type um um really on the brain that these changes occur, the damage occurs. If you get the damage in the basil cells of the brain, you get um Parkinson’s disease. If you get the damage in the motor part of the brain, you get Multiple sclerosis. If you get the damage in the brain stem, an the upper part of the spinal cord you get Lou Garrets disease. And this damage appears to be caused by a mercury poisoning. Themes two places we get mercury. Number one from our dental fillings. There’s t dental experts doctors, dentists who know how to take these mercury fillings out without damaging you, so I would recommend that you find somebody apparently, YOUR GOING TO HAVE TO HOLD IT DOWN JUST A LITTLE BIT IN THE BACK, I’M GETTING TO THE POINT WHERE I NEED TO SCREAM. THANK YOU. So anyway these experts know how to take this out without damaging you further. That’s one place your getting, that’s probably the primary ,place that we get mercury. Another [place where you get mercury, comes from the seed coatings of seeds that are put in the ground, these are not to eat. It prevents them from going moldy, O.K. these are seed grains. Put them in the ground to grow crops and they had a mercury coating. It gets into your drinking water, the dust gets in the air, and oxygen will help you. You better get rid of that mercury, and if you take in the colloidal mineral especially colloidal selenium, it’s almost a specific antidote. Yes mam”

      I urge you to get in touch with Dr. Joel Wallach and speak with him if possible. He will provide detailed instructions for how you get cured.

      • This is NONSENSE.
        This “Toxin” concept is “snake oil” !!!!!
        Absolutely nothing scientific – only testimonials !

      • I wouldn’t trust anyone who didn’t bother taking the time to look up the proper way to spell Lou Gehrig’s NAME!

  • I HAVE ALS. PLEASE! SEND ME ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THIS TREATMENT. USA

  • This is fantastic news!
    I was just curious as to whether this treatment would also be applicable for individuals diagnosed with PLS?

  • Good news. I hope the people in the USA get help. My family has 3 people who died and no more should died.

  • nice to hear that but im french als ,i come in hadassah last
    marsh to been add on patient als list for the trial ,until now no news from hadassah, and if them open stem cell treatment tomorrow the cost of treatment will be for rich people 120 000$
    IS CRIMINAL AND BRAINSTORM STILL HOPENESS KILLER

    The combination of ALS and Myasthenia Gravis in the same patient raises the question of Lyme Disease as the cause of both.
    The Rabbi should be tested for Lyme Disease.
    If Lyme infection is present and is not treated the Rabbi will ultimately fail because the environment remains toxic.

  • Jim Fitzjarrell

    I just read the article regarding Rabbi Refoel. I pray this is true. I to have ALS and pray every day for the researchers and for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to provide a pathway for researchers to follow that will lead to a cure. This would truly be an answer to my prayers. How soon can all of us who suffer with this horrible disease obtain NurOwn treatment? Please let it be soon as time is running out.

    • The research completed by Daniel Hale in Colorado is so spot on and correct that he can show that stem cells will only be a hit and miss solution to A.L.S. Unless you stop the biochemical reaction that is occuring in the body,the new cells will be affected in the same way the original cells were affected.Stem cells are just another way of treating the symptoms. By solving the cause of A.L.S. Mr. Hale was able to form an equation that he than solved to show how to stop the progression. Motor neuron recovery occurs after the progression is halted.Since A.L.S. is not viral,bacterial,or parasitic everyone needs to get away from the disease school of thought and see A.L.S. for what it actually is. An injury. That is why the immune system has no success in correcting it since it is not designed to do this. Mr. Hale’s research rivials any research ever accomplished in putting an end to A.L.S., because he was willing to find the cause of why nintey per cent of all A.L.S. diagnosed people do not carry the genetic predispostion. There had to be enviornmental factors at work over hundreds of years to allow the body to cross over this biochemical perimeter of injury and eventually form a genetic predispostion. It is high time to recognize his accomplishment. The alternative is not acceptable.

        Lyme Disease can produce a clinical picture identical to ALS.
        The International Medical Literature is full of articles – patient is initially diagnosed with ALS and later found to have Neuroborreliosis ( Lyme Disease in the Central Nervous System) and treated with IV antibiotics with improvement.
        Every patient diagnosed with ALS must be tested for Lyme Dosease.
        The screening test for Lyme Disease is the Elisa Test which will give a false negative 50% of the time and therefore is not a valid test. The Western Blot is much more reliable providing the western Blot is performed properly -i.e. including tests for bands #31 & #34 which are omitted in many Western Blot tests.

      • DID THIS RABBI THAT SUPPOSEDLY HAD A CURE IN ISRAEL REALLY HAVE ALS OR DID HE HAVE MS?

      • Daniel, with all my respect, but what bullocks are you talking about ? The rabbi got inserted stemm cells that release neurotrophic factors. Neurotrophic factors cure neurons and generate new neurons. Moreover, though not completely proven yet, scientist also think they can unfold misfolded proteins attacking the neurons. With other words … the cause of ALS is not taken away. But, it could be possible that inserting these stemm cells every 3 years, can keep ALS patients functioning normally like if they would have no ALS. Seems like a practical cure to me.

        • Daniel R. Hale

          Diego, When you are afflicted with A.L.S, your proteins and cell membranes are bent or altered. Knowing how this occurs explains how A.L.S. pushes the body over a biochemical barrier. A.L.S. is not going to be any nicer to new cells (stem) then it was to the old cells. Even if they act as nursemaids to the old affected cells. That is why stem cell therepy has not been effective in A.L.S. affected people for any long lenth of time. And for the vast majority,not at all. My research shows exactly how the biochemistry of A.L.S. starts in the body’s of not only humans but cannines. (dogs) It is the most extensive research ever done on A.L.S. and will end A.L.S. as we know it. A.L.S. is a biochemical dommino effect that can occur while driving a car,riding a bike,or standing on a surfboard. If you are doing any kind of exorcise this so called disease(which it is not)can occur. It is not caused by playing football or any contact sports. Throwing drugs at this thing has not and will not ever be effective. It is too complicated.When the medical community finally understands what has been accomplished here, A.L.S. will come to an end. And not until. Treat the cause,not the symptoms. Common sense medicine. Daniel R. Hale

          • Daniel I have sent you 2 emails can u plz respond to me, I am from Australia and I attempted to call your phone but it did not work…do u have Skype instead ??

            My email is jessicarechichi@hotmail.com

          • Well, I stumbled across this article and it’s very interesting.

            Hello, My name is Dr. R. (maintaining some anonymity because I don’t want to be harassed)

            Time for me to jump in here.

            I am a veterinarian, scientist, geneticist, researcher, former human anatomy/physiology teacher. My work has been with autism and I know the cause and cure with 100% certainty.

            Wow, I have read you comments and the pain I hear is so overwhelming. I do “get” it.

            The cause of autism is closely related to the cause of ALS, MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Lupus and Fibromyalgia.

            I am selling my work for a large amount of money $330 million for the cause of autism and $150 million additional for the cure.

            Not reading anyone’s mind, but listening to the comments here and weighing everything with my own Christianity and values, I have a tough situation to not just reveal all of this. Please understand I do not take the responsibility lightly. Saying this, I can also understand what Mr. Hale is up against. Some of what he says agrees with what I KNOW to be true in the case of autism. I suspect that if we both know the causes (he- ALS, me- autism) that our theories would be the same.

            Now for the price. Yes, I want to be paid for all of the work I have into this. I have worked on it for 30 years and put my own resources into it and if I didn’t arrive at the right conclusion, I would be out all of that while everyone else was enjoying themselves with their resources at the movies, the lake or at a ballgame. People in the business of building homes don’t give houses away even when people need shelter. People who have grocery stores don’t empty their shelves even though people are hungry.

            The workman is worth his hire.

            I hear the comments of the skeptics and of the hopeful.

            Somehow, someway you are going to have to learn to trust who to trust. That is the bottom line. Then you are going to have to figure out a way to purchase either what I have or what someone else has. If it is too expensive for you to afford, you are going to have to figure out a way. There always is a way.

            I can be reached at contact@autismcauseandcure.com

      • Hi Daniel,
        I’m very interesting in this treatment.

        I’ve tried to call your number but have no success.

        Please reply if you can help me with some questions about this disease.

    • The research completed by Daniel Hale in Colorado is so spot on and correct that he can show that stem cells will only be a hit and miss solution to A.L.S.

  • Are there any opportunities for more compassionate care cases? I have a good friend with ALS who would be more than interessted in any potential cure.

  • Baruch Rofeh Choleh! Dank Gott!

  • Wonderful

  • I’m very happy for this Rabbi.
    I don’t think, and I’m sure that scientifically you can not conclude from 1 case. May be it’s only a miracle….
    I’m sure that you (Prof Karussis) treat many patients from ALS with MSC. Can you decribe what happened to other patients?It’s good to give hope to patients but I think that as a scientific doctor, you have to moderate your point of view and to give us statitistics from these patients. How many patients received MSC injection.
    How many patients had a real improvement????

  • The cause and reversal of A.L.S. has been discovered by a Colorado researcher named Daniel Hale after thirteen years of research. A.L.S. is not a disease,it is a naturally caused biochemical injury that can be corrected in thirty days,allowing the body to heal over a five to nine month period,depending on how long the person has been afflicted and how far they have progressed. A.L.S. has been completely solved and drugs are not necessary to recover if you know the cause and how it occurs. Dan has also discovered how A.L.S. occurs in cannines(dogs)and why it takes until the latter stages of their lives to affect them.

    • Dear Lord come on… Really?!?! If this were the case hale would be rich and famous!!! How much does this cost because we will be on the next plane but assure me this isn’t a scam!

      • Assure you this isn’t a scam????

        That is the point. You want everyone to be responsible for you.

        Go to God and get your answer. He will tell you if it’s a scam or if it isn’t.

        Comments from people like you are why I won’t give away my well-supported theory on the cause of autism which closely is linked to the cause of ALS, MS, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. I refuse to “throw pearls before swine” There was someone that acted just like you crucified with Jesus. He mocked him.

        When you’ve tried everything else out there and nothing has worked, then come see me.
        You can contact me at contact@autismcauseandcure.com

        I am a doctor, scientist, geneticist, researcher, former teacher of human anatomy/physiology and I KNOW what the CAUSE (singular) and CURE of autism is. I am selling my well-supported theory and want a buyer who will distribute it broadly so that many will benefit from it. I have had interest expressed in this offer by qualified buyers but I didn’t sell because I felt that it would sit on a shelf for too long. In response to that experience, I added a condition to this offer. The buyer will only have exclusive rights for a period limited to 1 year. After that, I can speak freely about it.

        My current price for the cause portion is $330 million and I will sell information on the cure for an additional $150 million. I split the two to make it less expensive for the buyer who may only want the cause portion. ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), MS, Parkinson’s disease, Fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s and Lupus are all related to autism at the cause stage. I picked the number $330 million because that is what some professional baseball players are asking for and that is just for entertainment. This price really is very, very low if you think of all the cost of medical savings, the savings from research spending and the savings from the time and energy that people have to contribute to the care of people affected with autism and the value to lives of the affected and their loved ones.

        My theory, and in science everything is a theory no matter how much evidence there is for it, explains how every symptom originates, the male:female ratio, the rise in rates and the difference in rates in a couple states with the highest ones. It explains the seizures, the sensory integration disorders, the digestive disturbances, the repetiitive behaviors, the social issues, regression, EVERYTHING!! The whole puzzle put together and making perfect sense.

        I have done research on this for over 30 years ago and approximately 17,or now 18, years ago, I discovered the cause. It was a solid “wow, OMG that’s it” discovery. Shortly after that, I began linking Alzheimer’s and then MS and then Lupus. And for 17 years+ I have been adding evidence and checking the theory against all studies that were published as I became aware of them. All the evidence from well-constructed scientific studies supports my theory.

        As I read the studies being put forth, my prediction is that they aren’t very close and that at the current rate, they will not have found the cause in another 20 years. That is a lot of money down the drain.

        I have made predictions and predictions based on knowing this theory and they have come to pass.

        Autism is predictable, preventable, treatable and curable. MS, ALS, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s can be prevented and can be halted and possibly can be reversed to some extent.

        I am not giving this information away for various reasons. The “workman is worth his hire” and the “widow’s oil” is to be sold amongst them. I have never accepted any govenment money. I have my own money and time in this; and lots of it. I paid for my own education even when I was so broke that 1 package of top ramen lasted me 2 days and I lived on that for an entire semester. If I give it away, it won’t be appreciated as it should. If you are a builder, you don’t give your houses away even if people need them.

        I am offering a commission to anyone who brings the ultimate buyer. 10% of the sales price minus legal fees to be paid at or after closing of the sale as commission to anyone who refers the buyer. The buyer must name the referrer and contracts for this commission agreement must be in place before closing of the sale. No self referrals and no referrals of family members for this commission. Subject to all local and federal laws and some restrictions apply. Your creative marketing and/or contacts put to good use could earn you a nice paycheck for your work. Again, the workman is worth his/her hire.

    • Nicole Erickson

      Dear Lord come on… Really?!?! If this were the case hale would be rich and famous!!! How much does this cost because we will be on the next plane but assure me this isn’t a scam!

      • Nicole, It does not cost anything. If it did you should be suspicious. I will be compensated I’m sure,sometime in the future. What I have accomplished is nobel Prize worthy,but more important it stops the ripple effect of pain and hell the loved ones have to go through watching this occur. I do not want fame. That is why I do not have a website. I asked the Gates Foundation in 2008 to assist me in having this research come out of their think tank since I had spent so much of my own money on it.I was turned down without even considering I had ten years of pattern analysis and hard work into it.So be respectful. This wasn’t easy to do. You may contact me at my email–
        houston1854@yahoo.com

        • Mr. Hale, I don’t know your work or if it is accurate or not, but you do not need to defend against garbage like this.

          You are not going to get any money or funding from Gates or any of the rest of them because they don’t want a cure. They want to keep researching.

          And I don’t believe God wants it work that way either. People have to get it for themselves being reliant on Him for the guidance.

          While you were in the lab working, they were at a BBQ. Not to be mean but what I’m saying is that you have “investment” into this as do I.

          If you can do it and I can do it, then other’s can too and maybe other’s have.

    • If this is true please contact me, as I have been diagnosed in the beginning stages if ALS. I will travel anywhere to get treatment! Sheri. Shericorral@yahoo.com

    I’m truly happy to hear what NurOwn and doctors at Hadassah Hospital have apparently done for Rabbi Shmulevitz , certainly nothing short of miraculous . News like this offers renewed hope to people with ALS . If this is really true and verifiable , then lets get the ball rolling and offer this treatment to other ALS sufferers a.s.a.p. since they have little time . Unfortunately , my reading tells me that it will take five or more years for any promising treatments to undergo the required trials and receive approval , especially since ALS has orphan status . So , as I already said , if NurOwn really does offer a miracle , then lets get going . When might it be available ?

I recieved your phone call however with the amount of response I am receiving from around the world, I cannot afford to call everyone back. My research is not a scam sir. It is spot on correct. A.L.S. is not Lyme disease,even though it shows similar symptoms. A.L.S. has not been solved because the medical community is simply looking in the wrong place.

    This I’d wonderful news. Imagine what other auto-immune diseases could be dealt with.

  • Yes, we thank G-d for the miracle of healing — and the human knowledge that allows us to actuate such miracles. Here’s a point to consider when forming a world view. When was the last time a Moslem country came out with such a profound result, advancing the frontiers of bioscience? Moslems aren’t intrinsically stupid. The Islamic world can import nuclear scientists and sufficient technology to build bombs — with the avowed purpose of destroying Israel. So if not their insufficiency then why their lack of creative contribution to the world at large? They worship a delusion and are bound by idiotic laws that are meant to keep their minds enslaved. Sorry to digress so much into this area of human events but recent compromises and betrayals by the Obama administration bring to mind the need to educate people in general as to the difference in the warring factions in the middle east. On the one hand healing medical advances. On the other the continued dire commitment to destroy the nation of Israel. Wake up.

  • Good news, thank you!
