The 2019 Healing ALS Conference itself was magical. Of the almost 300 who attended were 
100 PALS, including 10 who reversed ALS. PALS, families, medical professionals and others in the ALS community were there to support and learn from each other. It took six months of very hard work both by us and by those on our volunteer committee and it was worth every second. PALS and family members left the conference saying their lives had been changed. Medical professionals left with a new perspective on what is possible. We have spoken to PALS since the conference who have stabilized or started to reverse their ALS symptoms. This is exciting!

Leap-Mission Group and Wednesday Calls

There are now 2 groups: The Leap Mission group and the Sergio Protocol group. Information on both is below.

Before you join either the Leap-Mission group or the Sergio group:

  • Step 3: Regularly attend Sunday Healing ALS Community Meetings and Monday Diet and Supplement Q&A’s
  • Step 4: Join the Healing ALS WhatsApp group and ask the basic questions and do sharing with this group. The Leap-Mission Telegram group is for more advanced questions.
  • Step 4: Remember that the Leap-Mission Wednesday calls and the Sergio sessions are for PALS who have already done the basics. If you have not spent a couple of months on all of the basics you will feel overwhelmed. Once you feel you have done the basics, then you are welcome to join either group or both.

  • Sign Panda Doc for confidentiality agreement. This assures that people will not share your private info or what is discussed outside this group and you agree not to share with others.
  • Why does it cost $13/year? Because it makes the confidentiality agreement legally binding. Consider it a buyer’s club. When you join you get a discount on Leap from 15%-30% discount, which is more than the maximum 10% discount offered elsewhere.
  • Do I need to join to purchase Leap? You can purchase Leap without a membership. Use code ”healingals” for 10% discount.

What is the Sergio Carmen Protocol Group and how do I join?

  • Sergio was diagnosed with ALS in 2015. He was in a wheelchair, he needed breathing assistance at night and part of the day. He read all the information on HealingALS.org including everything those who reversed ALS did to heal. The Sergio did a LOT of his own research and implemented his own combination of holistic protocols.
  • Sergio has generously agreed to do Q&A session about his protocol for free. He is committed to sharing information to PALS about things they can do to heal at home, as he did.
  • If you want more information on Sergio’s protocol definitely watch his three presentations in 2021 on the Sunday Recordings on HealingALS.org
  • For those interested in group support in implementing part or all of Sergio’s protocol will want to consider joining this group.

Bill Riffle Still Walking after 29 Years with ALS

Bill Riffle was diagnosed with ALS in 1992 at the age of 53 after experiencing symptoms since 1989. 

Today in 2021, Bill is 85 years old and is still walking using his walker he calls “Harley”.

Bill attributes his longevity to:

  1. Attitude. If you live long enough you will get something. Live with it, make the best of it. Stay positive and lead an active life
  2. Vitamins. Magnesium 500 mg daily Bill says is the most important, along with Vitamins B6 100 mg, B12 250 mcg, C 500 mg, E 400 IU. He has used vitamins since his first symptoms began.
  3. Exercise DVD – A DVD he has used since 1995 as well as staying as active as possible all the the time. 
  4. Faith – A strong faith in God and a community praying for him, and a sense of purpose to give hope to others diagnosed with ALS.

Bill shares his story in his book Pushing My Harley. To order the book that comes with the exercise DVD Bill uses

To contact Bill directly if you have questions about his book or DVD, his email is pushingmyharley@gmail.com.

Bill has been married to his wife Phyllis for 47 years. Phyllis says she is inspired by Bill’s positive attitude which has made her attitude positive as well. 

Bill and Phyllis are active in their church and their local community. Together they have made it through many hospital visits from injuries from falls as well as a heart attack and cancer diagnoses. 

The full interview of Bill and Phyllis Riffle will be posted below soon.
