Ayahuasca ALS treatment trial in progress – Current number of participants: 28 (Sweden, United States, Belgium, Finland, UK, Turkey, Brazil, Italy, Canada, Russia, Singapore, Colombia, Argentina, India, Croatia, Australia)
Last Updated: June 2016
Based on recurrent response to the original article, a pilot study has been initiated in order to create the incentive necessary for researchers to fully investigate the potential of ayahuasca plants for treatment of ALS and neurological diseases in general. It will also serve the purpose of informing people about medicinal use of ayahuasca as a natural medicine based treatment option for ALS and related neurological diseases.
Many concerned people have contacted the Ayahuasca ALS Treatment website, questioning why further studies on the specific subject matter are not being conducted at this point. The answer being the general absence of awareness regarding the medicinal value of these potent plants and their possible role in the future treatment of ALS and other neurological diseases. With individuals representing a community of people coming forward to present their experiences from using these medicinal plants, in the organized context of natural medicinal treatment, the documented results will hopefully provide the cause for thorough scientific evaluation to be made.
Have you been using ayahuasca plants of any kind, for any period of time, in order to treat any of the following conditions?:
- ALS or other type of motor neuron disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Huntington’s disease
- Other neurological condition
Are you considering using ayahuasca plants of any kind within the near future, in order to treat any of these conditions?:
If yes – Would you be interested in providing your personal evaluation to this website for the eventual publication of the results gathered? Your contribution may greatly help the cause for finding and making viable natural medicine based treatment options known. All useful results will be presented to researchers and institutions within the field of neuromedicine. Your privacy will be respected, and none of your personal information openly published unless requested by you personally.
There are at this moment 28 patients diagnosed with ALS, from sixteen different countries, participating in this project, evaluating this natural form of treatment. The number of participants will be updated continuously as others join, and the eventual results are to be made public on this website. Follow-up documentation of participants who continue with long term treatment will be posted on this website along with development updates of the Ayahuasca ALS Treatment Project.

This is a non-profit, independent, volunteer type of project – where you and others have the opportunity to pioneer natural medicinal treatment research regarding ALS and similar neurological conditions, and the general research of entheogenic medicinal plants through your contribution.
Simple correspondense through e-mail will suffice to discuss details of the study and any related questions. Preferably, you should write “ALS study”, “Pilot study” or similar in the topic field to ensure proper sorting, as I answer an increasing number of personal e-mails on a daily basis. Please provide information about yourself, your diagnosis and current health condition (see below chart) to make personal assessment possible.
- Name, age, gender and country
- Date of diagnosis
- Symptom history and development
- Communication – is speech affected?
- Is breathing or swallowing ability affected?
- Mobility – Able to walk or in need of assistance?
- Pharmaceutical medications – Any drugs currently being used? Can they be excluded or reduced without health concerns?
- Diet (Documentation needed listing all food and drink items during 1-2 average days to determine neccessary therapy adjustments)
It’s important to underline that this pilot study is completely unofficial – not an official clinical trial. It is the web-based networking of adult individuals with a common cause and interest in the subject matter, and the sharing of information between people in search for viable natural medicinal treatment options. The author of this site and its articles will take no personal responsibility for the personal health and actions of individuals pursuing this option.
To the people involved who have been in contact with the Ayahuaca ALS Treatment website, requesting the setup of this international project, and to participants providing data to this study: Thank you for doing the ALS community a great service by exploring new treatment options and sharing your experience. Many are awaiting the outcome.
More information and updates will follow.
