This past year I focused my attention on identifying steps that can be taken to achieve long lasting relief. How can a person heal from the inside-out rather than paying lots of money for therapies that offer temporary relief at best? What I have discovered over the past year is that there is no single therapy, action or habit that does the trick. Yes, many people seek this type of solution without success. Why?

giant-leap-for-recovery

The key to achieving relief from Parkinson’s symptoms that is sustained in the long run is to quiet and calm the sympathetic nervous system and put the parasympathetic nervous system in the driver’s seat (most of the time). Medicines do not accomplish this, nor do supplements. Simple, easy to do steps must be taken that can offer long lasting relief from symptoms.

This insight has inspired the development of my course, Giant Leap for Recovery.  Is it possible to experience a leap in recovery by embracing a single approach? My answer is no. You make it happen by taking small steps that, little by little, result in big wins.

Recent Research has Profound Implications for Understanding the Causes of Parkinson’s Symptoms

Have you drawn the conclusion that the fungal infection on your toes or the black spots on your hands have nothing to do with the causes of Parkinson’s symptoms?

It is now time to reevaluate that conclusion.

causes-of-Parkinson's-symptoms
Can Toxins in the Hands be transported to the brain?

Many people who experience the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are convinced the causes of Parkinson’s symptoms reside in the brain and only the brain.  After all – how can an infection in your hands spread to your brain?

A plethora of recent research however suggests the cause of Parkinson’s symptoms could well originate in the gut – or in toxins lodged at the extremities. Despite this compelling body of evidence, many remain unconvinced.

A revolutionary discovery by Neil Theise and his colleagues from a New York University School of Medicine study published in Scientific Reports may shift your opinion. Heretofore unseen and unacknowledged transportation highways exist throughout the body. They occupy the in-between spaces in the body which is why they have never been seen. Until now that is.

A fluid filled type of latticework of connective tissue has been discovered to exist throughout the body including the digestive organs, arteries and vital organs. It occupies – of all things – the in-between spaces. This is a revolutionary discovery. Advanced electron microscopy shows collagen bundles that look like long, snaky cells ebb and flow much like the tides of the ocean.

This new discoveries means, in a nutshell, that toxins and bacteria lodged anywhere in the body can be transported to any location including the brain. If you have concluded that those dark spots on your hands or that fungus on your toes have nothing to do with your symptoms, might I now suggest otherwise.

Dark blemishes are usually indications of toxins or infections which the body disperses to the extremities (hands, arms, feet, legs, head) to protect vital organs. This may well be only a temporary “SOS” measure. The recent discovery about a hidden transportation highway means that toxins lodged at the extremities today may be transported to the brain or vital organs tomorrow.

Most of the discussion about this recent discovery pertains to cancers for obvious reasons. Implications for neurological conditions are also profound.

The bottom line: Get serious about detoxing. Take steps to strengthen your immune system. That fungus growing on your big toe may wind up in your brain.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

Today I hosted a fascinating radio show interview with Natural Pharmacist Ross Pelton PhD pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and David Sage who discussed the impressive research documenting the effects of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy for treatment of a wide variety of symptoms.  If your recovery program is stuck in the mud at the present moment, I encourage you to listen to the replay of this informative interview .

All About Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy 

This short video demonstrates the differences between good blood flow and poor blood flow. White blood cells (leukocytes) are increased, red blood cells are disassembled and blood flow in dramatically increased.

BEMER is designed to improve circulation thereby supporting the body’s natural self-regulating processes. Blood is the body’s universal means of transport. Oxygen,
nutrients, chemical messengers (e.g., hormones) and immune cells are all transported through our blood. When our body’s cells, tissues and organs are adequately nourished and metabolic waste products are removed, our bodies become healthy and function properly. The optimal regulation of circulation is a prerequisite for ensuring good
levels of health and fitness.

Research on PEMF reports a series of positive outcomes including modulation of inflammation, reduction of bodily discomforts, promotion of tissue repair and regeneration, improvement of cardiac function, reduction of fatigue, acceleration of recovery from accidents and support of waste removal. These positive outcomes might clearly have a positive benefit for persons currently experiencing neurological challenges.

I want to let you know my wife’s experience so far with the Vielight gamma device.

We received the device on 1/25/18 and started using the device per Dr. Lim’s instructions 6 days on 1 day off. It took about 3 weeks to start seeing benefits. The benefits have been clearer head, more confident, better balance(hasn’t fallen since 1/15/18 with prior multiple falls weekly), better gait, much less threshold challenges, and has been able to reduce medication by about a third.

A little history about my wife, she has had Parkinson’s since 1995. Per her neurologist as of May 2017 she was level 4 with the disease ready for wheel chair. In June 2017 we began our journey with hrhyperbaric.com here in Norfolk, Va. She completed 40 dives, which basically gave her her life back. It was the best money we have ever spent on her treatment. You can see her video on their website.
After the last month of the vielight, we have experienced an extension of the benefits similar to HBOT but the Vielight has done more overall and at this point is much better investment.
Thanks again for getting the word out on Vielight. Please feel free to use this information to help others.
Respectfully,

Hello, I have a few quarts of dried, ground fava beans that my father grew and used for his Parkinson’s. He passed away last spring and I am wondering if you or anyone you knew had a use for them.

The bean powder really helped reduce his dependence on pharmaceutical medicine and helped delay the onset of dyskinesia. My father was a PhD medical researcher, and researched Parkinson’s treatments obsessively. He felt the fava beans was one of the best alternatives.

Let me know and I’d be happy to mail them. I can also include the report he wrote.

Thanks, Angela

Photobiomodulation Light Therapy Update for Parkinson’s

Feeback about Photobiomodulation Light Therapy for Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

As a brand new invention. there is no systematic published research on the use of the Vielight Gamma Photobiomoduatlion light therapy to specifically address symptoms of Parkinson’s. It has now been several months since I aired an interview with the inventor of the new Vielight Photobiomodulation device, Dr. Lou Lim.  Most users have not had sufficient experience to offer reports on its effectiveness for them, but I have heard scattered reports from users.

Generally speaking, some users tell me they are very pleased with the outcomes they have experienced. Others report disappointment that they did not experience the outcomes they had hoped for, but they still have time to use it before the 6 month warranty expires.

I called the Vielight company and asked what feedback they had heard. They reported that people who they have heard back from generally seemed pleased with the outcomes from use and that very few units had been returned. I think they have sold over 60,000 units.

Their sense was that the few people who reported disappointment with the device had very advanced Parkinson’s symptoms. The therapy may be more effective when symptoms are addressed earlier rather than later. The jury is still out on who and what photobiomodulation therapy helps the most. Do your own due diligence in deciding whether this particular therapy is the right one for  you.

Click on the link below to hear my interview on Parkinsons Recovery Radio with Dr. Lew Lim, inventor of this new photobiomodulation therapy.

The Science Behind Photobiomodulation Therapy

Neurons are cells that contain mitochondria. Photobiomodulation energizes neuronal mitochondria, triggering a cascade of beneficial cellular functions. Potential benefits are neuroprotective effects, self-repair mechanisms and enhanced functionality.

Intranasal photobiomodulation is the most efficient method for light energy to reach the brain. Different from electrical and magnetic stimulation, photobiomodulation uses light energy (or photons) of specific wave lengths and power density to simulate cellular function.

Dr. Lim is an engineer and a Doctor of Natural Medicine with additional diplomas in Medical Neuroscience and Business and Accountancy. He obtained his degrees and diplomas from the University of California at Berkeley, University of Sheffield, Duke University, Quantum University and The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, UK.

Photobiomodulation Research

A 2017 study examined the effects of photobiomodulation  (PBM),  a light therapy that uses red or near-infrared light to heal and protect tissues, in five older adults with dementia, one of the symptoms of Parkinson’s.

After 12 weeks of treatment subjects showed significant improvements on the Cognitive Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale. With only five subjects, the effect sizes had to be huge for significance to  be shown.

Caregivers who kept daily journals tracking experiences of the research subjects reported participants had:

  • Better sleep
  • Fewer angry outbursts
  • Decreased anxiety

 

Did Positive Results for Subjects Continue After Treatment was Suspended?

No. Precipitous declines were observed during the follow-up 4 week no-treatment period. Results suggest treatments need to continue for results to be sustained.

About the Vielight Photobiomodulation Device

The company, Vielight, has generously offered followers of Parkinsons Recovery a 10% discount off orders of the the Vielight Neuro Gamma device which retails for $1749. Enter the coupon code healing4me on the shopping  cart. The website: www.vielight.com

Warranty

Vielight is so confident in its new product that you get six (6) months to try out their newly invented  photobiomodulation therapy. If for any reason you are not satisfied, you can return it for a 80% refund. I have never heard of a company that is so confident in their product that such a generous warranty can be extended. They obviously have high confidence in their new invention. While there is scant evidence about its effectiveness for people who experience symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, the opportunity to try it out for minimal risk is currently available.

Act Now or Wait for More Evidence?

If you prefer to wait for clear and convincing evidence that this or any light therapy will help with symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, be on the lookout for research findings that will be completed and released 5-10 years from now. Designing and implementing studies takes time and of course big bucks. I would personally  like to see many people with the symptoms start getting photobiomodulation therapy now. Early users are giving us rich indications about its usefulness as a treatment for Parkinson’s symptoms,. I do not hesitate to suggest this as a treatment option to take seriously.

Are Medicines or Supplements no Longer Working for You?

If the answer is yes to this question,  what treatment options remain? There is, of course, Deep Brain Stimulation available as an option, but I am well aware many of you prefer not to pursue this treatment option. It is my hope and prayer that photobiomodulation therapy will become a natural option that supports the therapeutic effect of medicines and supplements such that the dosage does not have to be increased or even can be reduced under close supervision of your doctor.

I thus recommend that you consider this therapy so we can discover together whether my prediction of success is right or wrong. Keep in mind that while the device is relatively expensive – $1749 – you:

  1. Can claim a 10% discount if you use the Parkinsons Recovery discount code of healing4me.
  2. Get 6 months of use to see if it offers symptomatic relief or not.
  3. Risk is reduced 80% since you can return the device within the 6 month period after purchase for an 80% refund of the purchase price.
  4. Everyone in the family can use the therapy.

The Vielight company obviously has confidence in their product which is a very encouraging sign. I have never heard of any company that offered a 6 month warranty. You can purchase the Gamma Vielight device from the Vielight website:

www.vielight.com

Be sure to enter the coupon code healing4me on the Vielight shopping cart to claim your Parkinsons Recovery 10% discount. Please also email me your experience with using it after a month (or longer) of use.

Vielight Photobiomodulation Device Instructional Manual Video

Research on Light Therapy from MIT

The following video previews recent research at MIT that explains why light therapy offers a promising opportunity to reverse dementia associated with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

I hope many of you will try this therapy out and let me know the result. It is not a permanent “fix” to be sure, but neither is medicine. I am attracted to this option because it is noninvasive and inexpensive over the long term when you consider it can be used for a lifetime and by all members of the household.

Photobiomodulation Mechanism

Visible red and near infrared light energy stimulates cells to generate more energy facilitating self-repair. The healing takes place within the mitochondria through an enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase. This enzyme accepts and converts the light (or photonic) energy into cellular energy (ATP) and other gene transcription factors leading to cellular repair and regeneration.

Will Photobiomodulation Therapy Interfere with My Daily Life?

No. You are welcome to receive the therapy while working, reading or doing anything really.  Dr. Lim, the inventor, recommends that people with more serious health issues such as Alzheimers might be advised to do the therapy at night while going to sleep. The treatment duration lasts only 20 minutes.

The Secret Pathway to Recovery is a Healthy Gut

Broken Brain Series Focuses on Nurturing a Healthy Gut

Episodes 7 and 8 of the Broken Brain series focuses attention on the importance of a healthy gut when it comes to reverse symptoms of Parkinson’s. I have watched all of the Broken Brain episodes that have aired so far. The time I have set aside to watch the episodes has been well spent. Some of interviews are with guests who have been Parkinsons Recovery Radio but many interviews are with people
who have not been guests on my radio show.

I recommend that you set a little time aside to watch Episodes 7 and 8 which are airing for free today and tomorrow. The Broken Brain series is not primarily focused on Parkinson’s, but many of the presentations cover issues pertinent to Parkinson’s symptoms. The last two episodes (Episode 7 and 8) contain a set of steps for nurturing a healthy gut. I will be watching for sure and suggest you do too.
