a mostly-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to developing effective alternative solutions to ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases. A neurodegenerative disease is a disorder in which the cells of the central nervous system stop working or die, as the disease gets worse over time. These diseases have no cure, but we strive to find one and, until then, we develop solutions to effectively help manage these diseases. Our most well-known solution is the Deanna Protocol for ALS
He began reading all scientific research on ALS in the past 100 years to try to find a solution for Deanna. Based on his medical knowledge and familiarity with ALS research, he began testing safe substances on Deanna and eventually teamed up with scientists at the University of South Florida to test and refine these substances in the lab. This is how the original Deanna Protocol was born. When on the Deanna Protocol, Deanna’s physical condition stopped deteriorating and she stabilized (which is unheard of in ALS patients who are progressing quickly). Deanna was doing so well on the Deanna Protocol that other ALS patients who knew her began asking Dr. Tedone to share information with them on what Deanna was taking. Others with ALS began seeing incredible results and began referring friends and writing about their improvements on ALS related blogs and websites. Word of mouth continued to spread and, now, there are over 6,000 individuals with ALS on the Deanna Protocol worldwide. Throughout the years, Dr. Tedone and scientists at different universities have tested and improved upon the Protocol, which has given way to the Deanna Protocol that exists today: a patent pending substance with a proprietary ratio of Arginine, alpha-Ketoglutaric acid, and gamma-Aminobutyric acid. These are all substances that are naturally found in the body. However, people with ALS need more of these substances to give fuel to the Krebs Cycle (energy producing cycle) in their nerve cells, in order to keep their diseased nerve cells alive. Think of the Deanna Protocol as special fuel needed to keep the cell’s engine running when the engine is malfunctioning because of a disease.
The vast majority of your donation will fund research to improve the DP Plan! This research will help us lengthen and improve the lives of those with ALS and likely other neurodegenerative diseases like MS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Winning the Fight relies mostly on volunteers. As a majority volunteer organization, we are able to pledge all net proceeds to research aimed at fine-tuning a treatment for neurodegenerative diseases.
