This article reviews the usual methods used to treat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in the West, then discusses some alternative treatments that are being used by practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The paper concludes by suggesting that some TCM methods, such as tai chi and qigong, should be considered for the treatment of ALS in conjunction with the current Western methods.
