Ice Buckets: NOT the Cure for ALS

Ice Buckets: NOT the Cure for ALS

August 24th UPDATE: FREE DOWNLOAD: 50+ Natural Solutions for ALS that likely wont' be funded because they are not pharmaceutical products!  PLEASE spread far and wide. The $80+ the ALS Association has raised with the Ice-Washing challenge will not go to the real solutions unless you pressure them! Click to download and share now!

Also, take a look at our ALS research page which is constantly being updated with new valuable research here.

Let's stop pretending like pouring ice on ourselves means anything until we can acknowledge the research that some of the causes and cures for ALS already exist -- none of them involving pharmaceutical intervention.

The ALS Association's 'Ice Bucket Challenge,' as of the writing of this article, has grossed over 41 million dollars in donations, which "has driven hundreds of thousands to join the fight against ALS," according to a recent Huffington Post blog written by Jose Costa.

The perpetual meme of 'fighting' idiopathic diseases -- meaning, diseases 'with no known cause' -- has become the most successful cause-marketing strategy of our time, with billions of dollars raised without appreciable yield for the ultimate outcome: saving lives.  Just look at Susan G. Komen, which raises billions for races and research into pharmaceutical and/or radiation-based treatments, but has yet to do anything to stem the overdiagnosis and overtreatment of healthy women (1.3 million women falsely diagnosed of breast cancer in the past 30 years), much less improve the survival times of those who actually do have a life threatening form of breast cancer.

For organizations that explicitly confess their ignorance about causes or cures of diseases they presumably intend to overcome, co-opting the good intentions of the mainstream with viral social media campaigns has become the flavor of the day.

In these monthly 'Wars' against disease, neither the combatants or victims stand to make much ground because no one is looking at root causes, the essential precondition to removing them and finding a real cure.

At we have spent years finding studies on about 3,000 ailments -- obtained through the government's own biomedical research database MEDLINE -- that can clearly be identified to have unnatural/manmade causes and natural solutions.

Take a look at our ALS page now, and you will a wide range of published and peer-reviewed studies indicating that we shouldn't be spending so much time raising capital, but rather awareness as to the already obvious ways we could reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with the disease. Some highlights include:

Some of the Actual ALS CAUSES:

GMI Goes Viral

It's good to bring to everyone's attention how popular these monster companies are. You mention that the American Cancer Society and other organizatons have gone "viral" with their messages.

Suppose some change in approach were made to cause GMI's message to go viral.

Clearly the word is spreading. However the good message is not on everyone's tongue yet.

Thanks for all the great work,

Tim Marshall
