The countless hours spent by Dr. Tedone in a desperate search against time eventually led to the discovery of metabolic support that the authors believe gives Deannas motor neurons the energy needed to survive and reduces excitotoxicity caused by excess glutamate, a shortage of GABA or both. Scientific studies have confirmed that the Deanna Protocol® significantly extends the life of SOD1-G93A mice and show that AKG and GABA reverse varicosity of synapses in healthy human neurons that were exposed to excess glutamate for forty-eight hours, when delivered to the extracellular fluid surrounding the motor neurons. This is a significant breakthrough for patients with ALS, and the authors know of no other treatment that has shown such changes in SOD1-G93A mice, healthy human motor neuron cells and actual patients diagnosed with ALS. Some evidence suggests that other neurological conditions, such as Alzheimers and traumatic brain injury, might benefit from some of the substances recommended in the Deanna Protocol®. The proceeds from this book are going to Winning the Fight, Inc. to support outreach to patients with ALS, research, clinical trials and development of improvements in the Deanna Protocol®.
