In the summer of 2014, a viral social media craze known as the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ helped tremendously to raise global awareness of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), a rare neurodegenerative disease. Millions of dollars were also raised as a result of the challenge, which involved participants being videoed whilst pouring a bucket of ice-cold water over their heads, encouraging viewers of the video to donate money to ALS research and then nominating others to also take part in the challenge and repeat the process.
Prior to this, ALS was a disease which was largely unheard of by the general public.
The ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ helped to increase awareness of the condition amongst individuals who were not personally affected by it, but for many, a full understanding of the disease is still lacking.
To date, no cure for ALS has been discovered. The pursuit to find safe and effective treatments continues as more and more people worldwide are diagnosed each year.
The aim of ALStreatment.com is to offer a comprehensive resource of information about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, including its causes, associated symptoms and current available treatments which can help slow down the progression of the disease.
Here you will also find the latest news in ALS research, together with testimonials of patients who have received some form of treatment to help alleviate their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
