Help with healing Parkinson's disease

Possible causes, natural treatments, cures & preventive measures

Copyright © 2017 Healing Cancer Naturally

While this site is dedicated to the subject of non-toxic and holistic healing of cancer, it also includes pages offering help with other major scourges of our times such as Alzheimer's Disease and stroke (upcoming). The following notes address causes and therapeutic options for Parkinson's outside of what mainstream medicine has to offer.

Parkinson's link to mercury

Similar to Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases, Parkinson's also is linked to mercury (see Excerpts from "Detoxing Chemicals and Pollutants for Optimal Health"). As such, it appears to be equally amenable to properly conducted heavy metals detoxification. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says in one of his German lectures (translated/paraphrased by Healing Cancer Naturally):

Glutathione (which binds mercury and its most toxic form methyl mercury) works phantastically with Parkinson's, often healing it instantaneously upon injection. This effect initially doesn't last, only 18-20 hours until the previous condition returns. Then the next injection must be immediately given. Doing this for months, the time between injections gradually extends, with eventual full recovery of the patient.”[1]

Avoiding aspartame

This excitotoxin appears to be another contributing cause of Parkinson's. More

Vitamin D and Parkinson's

Finnish researchers followed 3173 individuals over 29 years and found that those with higher vitamin D levels had a lower risk of developing Parkinson's. Vitamin D could exert neuroprotectrve effects via antioxydant or immunomodulating effects, by regulating neuronal calcium, or by increasing nerve conduction or detoxification.

Inversely, vitamin D blood concentrations in the low range are associated with a higher Parkinson's risk.

Another study published in the Journal of Parkinson Disease in 2013 examined the vitamin D levels of 286 patients and found that those with higher concentrations both performed better at cognitive tests and enjoyed better mood.

Kombucha drinking

www.kombu.de/testimon.htm carries the testimonial of a 81 year old man who had been diagnosed with Parkinson's some nine years earlier and whose gait had been reduced to a shuffle. Other complaints included severe osteoarthritis in his left hand and pronounced hearing impairment.

At the time of his reporting, he had been drinking Kombucha for only 17 days but was already noticing dramatic improvements in his energy levels, general mobility, sense of physical balance as well as hearing, and had regained full pain-free movement in his hand. Previously despairing of the future, he now feels bright hope for the years ahead and calls Kombucha THE TEA OF LIFE.

It seems likely that kombucha's ability to mobilise and help excrete environmental toxins such a lead, mercury, and others has been instrumental in bringing about these dramatic healing effects.[2].

Inclined bed therapy (raising one's bed at an angle in lieu of sleeping flat)

appears to be one of the simplest methods to improve one's health, at least in diseases such as Parkinson's. http://inclinedbedtherapy.com/my-research/parkinson-s-disease-research contains a phantastic (and dramatic) anecdotal report and other information on how inclined bed therapy has helped in cases of Parkinsonism.

Imbalanced gut microbiota

Based on the recent discovery that intestinal bacteria directly influence the autonomic and central nervous system via the enteric nervous system and the vagus nerve, Finnish researchers looked into a possible link between a person's gut microbiome and Parkinson's disease. The study from 2015[7] discovered something astounding:

People with Parkinson's have an intestinal flora which differs strongly from those found in healthy individuals. One species of microbes in particuliar, Prevotellaceae, is nearly absent in Parkinson sufferers. Another bacterial family, Enterobacteriaceae, was associated with difficulty walking and keeping one's balance, the greater their numbers, the more serious the symptoms.

While we currently don't know whether there is a causal relationship between the altered gut microbiome and Parkinson's disease, it appears that trying to positively influence one's microbiota may be a good idea for sufferers, such as via diet and probiotics.

Ozone treatment

EFT

And again, as with Alzheimer’s patients, one important healing approach to look into in my view is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) which I most highly recommend and which reports "...some astonishing improvements in the symptoms of Parkinson's disease."

Velvet bean (Mucuna pruriens)

This plant has been traditionally used in Africa and in ayurvedic medecine in the treatment of diseases of the nervous system. Its seeds contain L-DOPA, an amino acid precursor of dopamine and other catecholamines. A preparation based on Macuna Pruriens seeds powder seemed to actually work better than standard L-DOPA.[3]

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum)

is a promising candidate in "adjuvant" Parkinson's treatment. Patients given 300 mg of fenugreek extract twice daily for six months experienced a significant improvement in their symptoms without any side effects.[4]

Medical cannabis (Cannabis sativa)

is not only an astounding cancer treatment but was also found to improve Parkinson's symptoms.[5]

Bacopa monnieri

Another "ayurvedic" plant known for its neuroprotective and cognition-enhancing benefits, bacopa monnieri has shown promise in preventing the death of dopamine-dependant brain cells.[6]

Tai-chi and acupuncture

have shown benefits against the tremors and postural instability typical of Parkinson's disease.

Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone)

A vital part of every cell and apparently some kind of a jack of all trades when it comes to health, CoQ10 is a vital element in fighting oxidation and inflammation both of which contribute to diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular illnesses, cancer, Alzheimer's fatigue states and Parkinson's. Adding CoQ10 may help slow down the progression of Parkinson's.

Ear microimplants

German physician Dr. Ulrich Werth has developed a form of implant acupuncture ("permanent needle") that positively influences the cause of the illness. See www.alternativeparkinson.com . He is the author of the book "Parkinson ist heilbar: Das Geheimnis der ewigen Nadel" [There is a cure for Parkinson's: The secret of the permanent needle] (2016).

Urine therapy

German physician and author Dr. Kurt Herz who extensively worked with auto-urine injections (and reported inter alia good results with schizophrenia and epilepsy) recommends to definitely try the powerful and scientifically corroborated urine therapy in the beginning stages of Parkinson's.

Book: "Reverse Parkinson's Disease" by John Pepper

Positively diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1992 at age 58, World War II survivor John Pepper had the first symptoms appear as early as 1968: lack of facial expression on family photos, problems with coordinating physical movements, his handwriting becoming progressively smaller and more illegible.

In 2017 however, it has been 14 years that John Pepper last took any medication and now actually walks 24 km a week! Also, he is able to walk without shuffling his feet, empty a glass of water without spilling, eat normally, draw a straight line, speak clearly without swallowing syllables, no longer has tremors and is actually in good shape for his age.

This "medical miracle" is owed to a mental and physical exercise program he developed himself and which he has consistently practised every day for many years. His method is based on what scientists call "neuroplasticity", the brain's ability to transform itself.

Pepper's method is effective, natural and without side effects and within the reach of any person - as long as they have the will and perseverance to stick with it. While he does not claim that it heals a person from Parkinson's, it has helped him to remain virtually symptom-free - and he is convinced that it could help numerous newly diagnosed people as long as they do the exercises on a regular basis.

In fact, psychiatrist and researcher Norman Doidge, M.D. of the University of Toronto and Columbia University (New York) was so fascinated with John Pepper's success that he devoted chapter 2 of his best-selling book "The Brain's Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity" to Pepper's case and the self-help program he devised that enabled him to restore lost mobility and normal functioning.

(Note: As a side benefit of Doidge's book, we also learn about ways to greatly reduce the risk of dementia.)

Cellect

Cellect is a nutritional supplement developed by the National Cancer Research Foundation (www.ncrf.org). In addition to having helped to achieve many remissions/cures of various forms of cancer, it is also reported to have shown the ability to reverse Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, Grave's Disease, manic depression, ADHD, and even drug/cigarette/alcohol addiction.

This is somewhat reminiscent of the successes reported from using marine phytoplankton and similar nutrient-dense supplements.

Foods & supplements containing iron and manganese

Both apparently can increase the risk of developing Parkinson's disease. A study looking at the diet of 638 individuals 250 of which had been newly diagnosed with Parkinson's showed that those with higher iron and manganese intakes had an almost double risk of developing the disease.[8]

Parkinson's link to pesticide exposure in individuals applying toxic chemical (insecticides, fungicides etc.) in their farms

A search of the biomedical database Pubmed yields 1100+ results for the search terms "pesticides parkinson".

The study Association of Parkinson's Disease and Its Subtypes for instance found a "significant association of pesticides with tremor-dominant Parkinson's disease in men", similar results ("individuals exposed to pesticides had a 70% higher incidence of PD than those not exposed") were found in the study Pesticide exposure and risk for Parkinson's disease and finally a study that followed over two million individuals (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10994803) stated that a "high risk of Parkinson's disease was found for the men and women in agriculture and horticulture".

As with many other toxins, there is also a link between pesticides and cancer, compare Causes of Cancer: toxic chemicals & pesticides.

A note on placebo power in Parkinson’s disease

SCIENCE (2001: 293: 1164–6) reported a study done at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) showing the effect of the power of the mind on the release of the brain chemical dopamine (faulty in Parkinson's patients).

Instead of administering the standard treatment for Parkinson’s (synthetic dopamine), the researchers had given a placebo while telling the patients that they had received the "real" chemical. As subsequently demonstrated via PET scans, the patients' brains responded by substantially increasing the release of their own stores of dopamine.
