Fueling From Within: Nutrition, Fitness, and Wellness

The actions we take to fuel our bodies on the inside are often some of the more, if not the most, important steps in maintaining a healthy lifestyle to the best of our abilities.

Whether it be nutrition, fitness, or wellness, information on all three are scattered throughout the Internet and consistently recommended by healthcare professionals. The importance of taking care of our bodies from within is not only exclusive to a group of people but is crucial for everyone, which includes ALS patients as well. Nutrition and wellness can be more difficult for ALS patients and their families as limits to chewing, swallowing, and moving may be presented. Although many of recommended patients to an antioxidant and micronutrient-rich diet, supplements, or feeding tube nutrition, there is currently no concrete and consistent evidence that strongly correlates specific vitamins and supplements to the decline of ALS. However, we know that proper nutrition and mindfulness do play a crucial role in minimizing possible challenges in ALS. Teaming up with leading researchers, healthcare professionals, institutions, and our beloved ALS patients and families, we are dedicated to spreading awareness in the significance of nutrition and wellness by compiling all of these tips and resources into a single easy-access platform, in hopes of pushing forward the fight of ALS.
