Personal Life

In November 2017, Warren began to have muscle fasciculations on his left arm, which quickly spread throughout his entire body. In May 2019, he was diagnosed with ALS/PMA (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/Motor neuron disease|Motor Neuron Disease/ AKA Lou Gehrig's disease; (Wiki: ALS). He had lost 20 to 33 percent of his upper body muscle strength over six months. ALS is said to be an incurable disease where motor neurons die, causing the person to lose the ability to walk, use their hands, speak, swallow, and breathe. Within a few months after diagnosis, he developed a protocol that included detoxing, supplementation, diet, and stem cell treatments. After much effort and numerous treatments, his protocol greatly slowed the progression of his ALS/PMA.[9][10] Over the course of a year, he swallowed more than 50,000 doses of supplements, did dozens of detoxing treatments, and had 40 stem cell treatments.
