One reader knows about a young boy suffering from this debilitating condition, which his parents understand is terminal. But could anything be done to slow the condition and improve his quality of life? One reader recommends a raw food diet, outlined in several books such as Nature's First Law: The Raw Food Diet, and 12 Steps to Raw Food. A therapist tells us that he has been treating an ALD patient with Upledger cranio-sacral therapy for the past couple of years. He has not been on any antibiotics, and his breathing has improved dramatically.
