MND/ALS: What’s to blame? Diseased motorneurones or dysfunctional cellular receptors?


A severely affected male regains muscular, respiratory and vocal functions several minutes after application of a wheatgrass extract to his skin.

Motor neurone disease is a severely debilitating, incurable, usually fatal medical condition. It is thought to be caused by dysfunctional neurones in the brain failing to maintain muscular function throughout the body.

The U.S. National Institutes of Health claims that motor-neurone disease consists of “a group of chronic, sporadic and hereditary neurological disorders characterised by progressive degeneration of motor neurones.”

However, in this case of a severely affected 50 year old male, almost instantaneous restoration of musculature, respiration and mobility occurs approximately five minutes after application of a wheatgrass extract to just one of his ankles.

A remarkable positive response to a wheatgrass extract begs an explanation

In January 2023, when I was overseas, John, a businessman and his business partner visited me unannounced at my hotel room. They had driven for four hours from the country, having been told that the wheatgrass extract I use therapeutically, (view my website), might help improve his severely disaffected breathing and movement. Severely wasted, weakened, and only barely capable of shuffling his feet while leaning heavily on his walking stick, I felt there was little if anything I could do to help him, but, concerned about his severely advanced condition, I invited them both in.

John shuffled his way very slowly along the passage, using me for support, then fell, exhausted, into an armchair. However, when he tried to stand unassisted, his weakness failed him and he fell back into the chair. (See Video No. 1.

Video No. 1. Prior to applying wheatgrass extract to John’s right ankle, note the severe muscular weakness and wasting of both his legs. He can only just manage to stand, but then falls back into his chair. (Compare with the significant improvement shown in Video No. 3, about ten minutes later.)

Having used the extract successfully and therapeutically for 29 years, I felt it might help restore John's weakened leg muscles by "reconnecting" what I thought might be caused by dysfunctional peripheral cellular receptors unable to connect with his brain. I therefore sprayed it lightly over a small area (2-3 centimetre radius) of his soleus muscle, medial to his right ankle (See Fig. 1.).

Almost immediately, his lower right calf turned warm, and I could feel numerous, strong, pulling sensations - presumably by muscular cells - followed less than a minute later, in his other leg. (Video No. 2) which I presumed were caused by contractions of reactivated muscle cells. Clearly, for this reponse to occur, John's brain must have been functioning normally. (Unfortunately, these unexpected responses prevented me from catching them on camera.)

About two minutes later, having regained sufficient strength in both legs for John to stand, he was able to walk about the room using his stick - unaided. It appeared  that his brain was functioning normally! If so, what could have caused the dysfunctionality of his muscular, respiratory and vocal symptoms?

Having worked therapeutically for 28 years using the extract, it appeared that ligands present in the wheatgrass extract had rapidly reconnected defective peripheral cellular receptors with John's brain. This enabled him to stand then walk around the room unaccompanied. Apparently, his brain was functioning normally.

It appeared that John's remarkably widespread recovery was the result of restoration of dysfunctional cellular receptors by ligands contained in the wheatgrass extract. 

Video No. 2. The wheatgrass extract has been applied, (a minute earlier) over a small, coin-sized area near John’s soleus muscle, next to his right ankle. (See Fig. 1.) This was chosen deliberately to test my "dysfunctional cellular receptor" theory. 

John’s respiratory rate had also slowed considerably and his voice had strengthened, suggesting further neurological recovery. Apparently there had been comprehensive restoration of neuronal pathways.

In Video No. 3., five minutes after application of the wheatgrass extract, John is seen walking, unassisted, showing remarkable improvement in respiration, speech, and swallowing. He then discards his walking stick, walks - first cautiously, then with increasing confidence, unaided, around the room. Clearly, numerous cellular receptors in both legs had reconnected with his brain.

John and his partner returned home soon afterwards, armed with oral and topical wheatgrass extract to continue further treatment. Unfortunately, given the severity of his condition, John's prognosis was not encouraging.

Video No. 4. (Below) Nine days later, John, now alone, drives unexpectedly into the hotel's car park, where I happen to be at the time. He had driven alone for several hours. Coincidentally in the carpark when he arrived, I was amazed to see him driving, then walking, with longer, more confident strides, and with marked improvement of respiration and speech. He was still dependent on his walking stick, but his mobility had improved considerably. He climbed back into his car and drove off.

After returning to Australia, I was notified six weeks later that John had passed away. However, given the severity of his muscular and other severe symptoms at our first meeting, I was surprised he had survived as long as he did. Clearly, the wheatgrass extract restored his neurological dysfunction, most likely by reactivating numerous dysfunctional cellular receptors in his body. Perhaps he may have survived longer had he been exposed to the extract sooner.

My theory on how wheatgrass extract restores physical functionality of MND/ALS patients

This wheatgrass extract is known to contain at least 20 ligands (Rhone Poulenc Laboratories, now Aventis) that are capable of reactivating the faulty gene expression of dysfunctional cellular receptors throughout the body. In "MND/ALS" patients, (and in many other medical conditions) it appears to rapidly reactivate them resulting in re-connection to the brain - as demonstrated in Figure 2 below. This simple illustration shows how ligands in wheatgrass extract may rapidly reactivate multiple dysfunctional cellular receptors responsible for pain, speech, respiration and other functions.It appears these dysfunctionalities have been signalled to the brain which has responded by re-connecting to peripheral cellular receptors.

Wheatgrass extract ligands restore dysfunctional contacts between peripheral cellular receptors and the brain.
