Diagnosed in 1988 at age 54
Nelda’s ALS progression was very fast. She was in a wheelchair unable to move within a year. She used a pencil in her mouth to type on the typewriter, one letter at a time. After trying a number of alternative therapies unsuccessfully, she read an article about a skilled energy healer in New York. Her husband and son drove her 7 hours each way for treatments. She slowly improved over 18 months. Now in her 70’s Nelda cooks, gardens, chops wood and enjoys her grandchildren.
