The ALS Association of Oregon & SW Washington is hosting a town hall meeting.

“ALS: What it is and How we Can Help” is Saturday, Aug. 3 from 3-4:30 p.m. in the Community Room, 501 S.W. Emigrant Ave., Pendleton. The event is free and open to the public.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS is also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease) affects hundreds of people living in Oregon and southwest Washington.

My husband was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) when he was 63 years old 4 years ago. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help him. The medical team did even less. His decline was rapid and devastating. His arms weakened first, then his hands and legs. Last year, a family friend told us about Organic Herbal Clinic and their successful ALS TREATMENT, we visited their website and ordered their ALS/MND Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed his Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, he is able to walk and able to ride his treadmill again, he is pretty active now.
