High-Dose Thiamine: A Novel, Promising Therapy for Parkinson’s disease

Parkinsons Recovery is dedicated to identifying promising new therapies that offer the promise of reversing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. One such
therapy, High-Dose Thiamine,  was discussed today on Parkinsons Recovery Radio by Italian neurologist Antonio Constantini MD.  He has been prescribing High Dose Thiamine as a treatment for his Parkinson’s patients with good success.  Click on the pointer to hear the replay.

Brief Summary of the Q&A Follows

What Results have Your Parkinson’s Patients Experienced?

It depends in part on whether the person has been recently experienced symptoms of Parkinson’s or has had them for several years. For the newly diagnosed taking high dose thiamine (whether by oral tablet or injection) reduces motor symptoms on average by 50% to 70% for persons who have recently begun experiencing Parkinson’s symptoms. In selected cases a patient can celebrate experiencing no symptoms. Improvements in motor symptoms are common.

For patients who have experienced symptoms for a long period of time, Dr.Costantini prescribes L-dopa and other more traditional medications. Such patients are also reported to experience symptom relief but results are generally not as dramatic.

How “High” Does the Thiamine Dosage Need to Be?

The recommended dosage varies considerably from patient to patient and is determined only after a medical checkup. Many factors influence the dosage that is prescribed. Possibilities range from 1 gram up to 4 grams a day of Vitamin B1 which is 1,000 to 4,000 times the normally recommended dose.

For some patients requiring the higher doses Dr. Costantini may administer B1 injections of 100 milligrams twice a week for a total intake of 200 milligrams each week of treatment.

Why Do You Prescribe High Dose Thiamine for your Parkinson’s Patients?

When there is a deficiency of thiamine, the result is a dysfunction in
metabolism. For persons experiencing Parkinson’s symptoms, Dr. Costantini hypothesized there is a deficiency in the update of thiamine to the brain cells that produce dopamine.

How Quickly Do Parkinson’s Patients Begin to Experience Relief from Symptoms?

If they are taking Thiamine in tablet or powder form, it typically takes 2-3 days to experience symptomatic improvement. When shots or injections are administered the improvement can typically be experienced in 30-45 minutes.

Once a patient begins taking high dose thiamine Dr. Costantini reports that they typically must continue taking it to receive continued benefits. It is possible to take short breaks without incurring troublesome setbacks.

What Conditions Other the Parkinson’s Is High Dose Thiamine Therapy Useful?

Dr. Costantini reports that high dose thiamine is also useful for chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, cluster headaches, migraines and Huntington’s disease.

High Dose Thiamine Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease

Italian Neurologist  Antonio Castantini MD has been prescribing High Dose Thiamine Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease with noteworthy results. During my Parkinsons Recovery Radio interview this week he reports that patients who have symptoms that are more recent show on average a 50% improvement when taking high dose thiamine. Why should high dose thiamine Reverse Parkinson’s Symptoms

You might well be thinking – OK. I will have my doctor check my thiamine levels (or Vitamin B1 levels). Maybe my levels are too low.

Dr. Castantini explains that in the initial stages of his research, he did check thiamine levels in his originating patient. He found them to be within normal limits. Wait a minute, eh? If the thiamine levels were within normal limits, why should taking a mega dose of Thiamine make a difference? What follows is my explanation of why a high dose may be needed.

Why Should High Dose Thiamine Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease Reverse Symptoms?

The problem has nothing to do with the actual quantity of B1 vitamin (or any of the series of B vitamins) in their body.  Rather, the body is not converting B vitamins to the enzymes that are essential for the body function well.  In more formal terms, this is known as a breakdown in the methylation cycle.

Persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease are very likely to have a breakdown in their methylation cycle. I learned this from conducting a series of interviews with BioAcoustic Pioneer Sharry Edwards who has done a series of diagnostics for persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s.  Sharry has identified a series of factors that cause neurological imbalances. One of the factors that jumps to the top of the list is a breakdown in the methylation cycle. In simple terms, a person has a sufficient quantity of the B vitamins such as B1, but their body is not converting them to the enzymes that are essential for a body to function normally.

Once the B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12) have been thoroughly processed by the methylation cycle, the body uses various methyl-groups to make healthy cells. These cells facilitate the production of neurotransmitters such as – you guessed it – dopamine. A fully functioning cycle makes it possible to remove toxins in the liver and elsewhere in addition to fighting infections successfully. In other words, B vitamins play an indirect, but essential role in promoting healthy neurons.

Taking a normal dose of B1 and other B vitamins may well not result in the essential conversion to the basic enzymes that are essential for the body to function. The body has to be overloaded with excessive quantities of B1 to override the short circuit in the methylation cycle. The important question turns on the puzzle – what causes the methylation cycle to bomb out? I solve this puzzle next.

Why is the Methylation Cycle Short Circuited?

Taking a normal dose of B1 and other B vitamins will not convert to the enzymes needed if the methylation cycle that has short circuited. The key question turns on the question – what causes the methylation cycle to bomb out?

The answer is … excessive and unrelenting stress.  Anyone who experiences Parkinson’s symptoms knows that stress has a direct and immediate impact on making symptoms worse.  When stressed to the hilt, there is a heavy demand on the methylation cycle. The cycle requires greater quantities of B1 and Thiamine for conversion to the essential enzymes.

  • When you are continuously stressed,
  • When your sympathetic nervous system (the fight-flight nervous system) is choosing to run away or fight …,

Your body is expending all of its available energy to survive. Critical functions have to be protected. The body is designed for survival, not to insure that we feel good.

The heart needs to continuously pump. The lungs need to continue processing oxygen. Simply put, when we are anxious and stressed all the time, there is no energy available to manufacture enzymes which are needed for a less important role of helping us feel better and heal. The “within normal range” quantity  of B1 is unused and discarded. The feel good – relax – chill out – parasympathetic nervous system (which produces dopamine) is deactivated in the interest of survival.

Why does high dose thiamine reverse Parkinson’s symptoms?  A poorly functioning methylation cycle can produce enzymes as long as large quantities of B1 vitamins (and other B vitamins) are readily available. The cycle itself is so inefficient that excessive availability of B vitamins are required to override the short circuit.

Results of a Methylation Cycle that has Short Circuited

When the methylation cycle is under functioning, you will be fatigued, depressed, irritable, anxious, susceptible to infections and confused. The reason why the detox therapies have limited success can be often explained by a dysfunctional methylation cycle. All of these symptoms are tied to persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s.

Results of a Fully Functional Methylation Cycle

To summarize: The methylation cycle affects:

  • Neurotransmitter levels. This is why so many individuals diagnosed with Parkinson’s have persistent anxiety and a deep depression that never seems to lift.
  • The immune function. This is why so many persons with Parkinson’s symptoms get some relief from taking Low Dose Naltrexone which tricks the immune system into becoming stronger.
  • This is why so many individuals have pursued one detox regime after another with limited success. The problem does not reside with the detox protocols per se, but a breakdown in the methylation cycle.
  • Production of glutathione (which is a major antioxidant and protector of your cells). This is why so many persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s are known to have dangerously low levels of glutathione.

Two Solutions to Improve the Function of the Methylation Cycle

  1. Since the methylation cycle has been compromised or even side lined completely, a therapy that appears to offer promise (in light of Dr. Costantini’s research) is to take  mega doses of vitamin B1 (thiamine). This supports that ability of the methylation cycle to process the essential conversions to enzymes. “Normal levels” are insufficient to activate the cycle. Most of the unused reside from  B1 is simply eliminated rather than used to product the enzymes.
  2. Quieting an overactive sympathetic nervous system by dealing with stressful situations with calm and balance and reducing persistent anxiety will directly contribute to bringing a compromised methylation cycle “back on line”. In doing so,  we add extra “hard drive” and “processing power” that the body now can use to convert the B vitamins to enzymes.  Once the methylation cycle becomes fully functional, a high dose of B vitamins should no longer be required or necessary.

Food Sources of Thiamine (Vitamin B1)

After announcing my interview with Antonio Costantini MD I received the following email from Aunt Bean regarding natural food sources of Thiamine (or Vitamin B1) as a therapy for Parkinson’s. As you will see below Aunt Bean has found eating foods that contain high concentrations of thiamine reduce her requirements for the fava bean natural dopamine supplement she takes. (She makes her own fava bean tincture).

Aunt Bean refers to her natural l-dopa tincture in her correspondence to me that is copied below. The natural dopamine supplement Aunt Bean is referring to in her email is the tincture she invented using fava beans. Visit the fava bean Parkinsons Recovery website to learn all about Aunt Bean’s fava bean tincture and her other natural food research discoveries for Parkinson’s.

Yes on thiamine Robert.

Since I have been eating nuts for a year and 2 months I have reduced my natural l-dopa tincture from 5 a day to usually one time a day. Mandolin playing and strength much better also. I eat 1 brazil nut, 4 walnut halves, 4 almonds, 2 bitter apricot kernels, handful of cashews and handful of pistachios a day.

Thumbs up😊.

Focused Ultra Sound

What follows is correspondence I received from a member of my audience who recently underwent Focused Ultra Sound therapy. As you can see for yourself he was pleased with the outcome.

I have been arguing for years that the medicine of the future will be sound and light therapy. And by George, here it is – finally! Given the initial results of the early studies, it is clear this therapy will eventually be approved in all countries and will like be viewed as a viable alternative to deep ;brain surgery.

Robert:

On 04/16/18 I underwent an MRI-guided Focused Ultra Sound procedure at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, Israel.

Tremors in my right hand have been reduced more than 90%, I’m able to do a lot of things that I couldn’t for at least 5 years.

I can write, type on computer, eat & drink with my right hand, get dressed by myself, walk without rigidity, no more shuffling, no more constipation, etc, etc.

Note that the treatment was for my right side only, for now. They recommend to wait 2 years for my left hand. 

The PD condition has not been cured, but now I can have quality of life.

I can’t stop giving thanks to God, I have my life almost back to normal.

I still have medication (Levopar+125, Kemedrine and Motilium); none of them available in the USA. So, I purchased 1-year supply in Israel.

If anyone needs tips on how to get this treatment, feel free to contact me. I want to help others. I know exactly how they feel like.

FYI, MRI-g FUS was created in Rambam Medical Center in 2013, but it’s available in Spain, Switzerland, Italy and U.K.

A few hospitals in USA started recently trials for PD & Essential Tremors, but it might take 5-10 years to be approved by FDA. Plus the conditions to be accepted for trials are ridiculous and reserved for only patients that have been under medication manufactured by the sponsor pharmacy (sounds obscene, doesn’t it?).

I know my journey is long toward healing, but God has used MRI-g FUS and the wonderful and chosen people of Israel to change dramatically the symptoms we PD patients endure.

Light Therapy Research Using Parkinson’s Patients

Light Therapy Research Reports Encouraging Findings for Parkinson’s Patients on Medications

For the past half century the “gold standard” treatment for Parkinson’s disease has been to replace dopamine that is presumed deficient with medicines and supplements. Let’s face it. After 50 years, these treatment protocols have shown limited efficacy and, unfortunately, can be accompanied by troubling side effects. Many who have elected these such treatment strategies have experienced an impoverished quality of life in the long run.

The challenges confronted by millions of persons with neurological challenges has motivated and inspired me to pursue investigations of other approaches that fall outside traditional treatment protocols.  One such approach that shows initial promise is light (or photobiomodulation) therapy.

Researchers have recently found evidence that light therapy is a promising therapy for persons experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The retina is believed to play a pivotal  role in the nigrostriatal dopamine system.  Light (obviously) passes through the eyes and shines on the retina which happens to be a close neighbor of the substantia nigra, the organ positioned in the middle of the brain.  I have drawn the logical conclusion is that – Duh – light should of course make a difference!

Light Therapy Research

A study by researchers at the Bronowski Clinic in Australia conducted a longitudinal study of 129 patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Subjects who were classified as compliant – meaning they used light therapy regularly – exhibited significant improvement over subjects that were partially compliant or non-compliant.

An encouraging observation of the compliant subjects was that the drug burden was less with fewer side effects. These results suggest that light therapy shows promise as a therapy to address symptoms of Parkinson’s and a therapy which might potentially reduce the role of medications to suppress symptoms.

I interviewed the inventor of a type of light therapy called photobiomodulation. While there is little systematic evidence that specifically addresses symptoms of Parkinson’s for this particular device, it is a therapy that certainly merits further review and consideration in light of the early research evidence on the merits of light therapy.

I have detailed this new technology on an earlier blog post with a replay of my interview with the inventor, Dr. Lew Lim.  Since diffuse light does not easily pass through the skull, Dr. Lim’s had the brilliant idea to pass the light through a device clipped to the nose. Now, in my book of creativity, that is inventiveness at its best!

Click the image below to hear the interview and learn more about Dr. Lim’s new photobiomodulation device called the Vielight Gamma.

light therapy research

 

It would seem at this early stage that you cannot go wrong to be open to allow light to shine brightly on the surface of your body and of course your retina!

The Simple Truth of Recovery Will Surprise You

Truth of Recovery Really is Simple

My research agenda for the past decade and a half has been to identify natural therapies that offer the promise of helping people reverse the symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. In part, this initiative has aired 250 interviews with health care professionals, doctors and therapists who have offered remarkable suggestions for what has been helping people recover.  All of these interviews are available as replays for free.

What is the bottom line of this extensive research? What is the truth of recovery? Is it complicated? Most people think it must be. Or, is it simple? I have concluded the key to a successful recovery is actually very simple indeed.  I did not believe this a decade ago.

Seventy of the 250 interviews I have hosted on my radio program have been with guests diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease who discovered one way or another to find relief from their symptoms.  The surprise to me as a researcher has been the vastly different routes individuals have taken to engage a successful journey down the road to recovery. Each story is unique.

What do these remarkable pioneers of recovery have in common? Certainly not the specifics of their recovery programs. Listen to some of the replays of the interviews and you will begin to appreciate how each person discovered their own best course of therapies that helped them heal.

Despite the differences, I recently asked the question what do these pioneers of recovery have in common?  The answer will shock you. Using a variety of approaches and therapies, they all found ways to infuse their body with the basics of life – light, water and oxygen.

  • Without the light of the sun there would be no life.truth of recovery - light therapy
  • Without oxygen from the air we breathe there would be no life

truth of recovery - oxygen

  • Without water to drink, there would be no life.

truth of recovery - waterThe authentic answer to recovery turns out to be profoundly simple. A body that is struggling with neurological difficulties is not receiving sufficient light, water or oxygen (or all three).  Fortunately there have been a number of exciting developments that enable the rich and safe infusion of light and oxygen  into the cells of the body as well as homeopathic remedies that have been designed to hydrate cells.

As I now see it, success with a recovery program depends on giving your body what it needs to thrive – light, water and oxygen.  It really is that simple folks.

Vielight Photobiomodulation Gamma Device

The Future of Medicine has Arrived

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

I predict the future of medicine rests with innovative therapies that utilize light and sound to bring the body back into balance and harmony.  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.

I predict Dr. Lim’s new invention promises to set health care in new and exciting directions and has the potential to offer far reaching benefits to persons experiencing Parkinson’s symptoms.

After listening to this interview, I am even more optimistic about this therapy for Parkinson’s and other conditions including mental fog and dementia. Be sure to listen to my interview with Dr. Lim posted at the top of this post. I believe Dr. Lim is a true pioneer who has invented medicine of the future which uses light.

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.

Early Evidence on Vielight’s Photobiomodulation Device as a Treatment for Parkinson’s Symptoms

As a brand new invention. there is no systematic published research on the use of the Vielight Gamma Photobiomoduatlion device as a therapy to specifically address Parkinson’s symptoms. I have heard informal feedback from users that the therapy has resulted in relief of some symptoms and report below my summary observations:

  1. One common report from users is that the therapy does not show quick results. You apparently have to apply the therapy over a period of several weeks to a month or longer to celebrate a positive shift in symptoms.
  2. I have heard several specific reports on tremors that were calmed.
  3. It is unclear at this point to what degree the therapy will address balance issues, but I have heard it seems to offer help with gait issues.
  4. Evidence does suggest that this therapy can potentially help with dementia.
  5. One user reported a definite return of smell, but the jury was out on the effect on tremors and other symptoms.
  6. The wife of one 85 year old man with advanced Parkinson’s symptoms reported that after 6 weeks of using the Vielight Neuro device. there were no major improvements but several minor ones of some consequence: Her husband reports being more alert, sleeping better, his cough is less, he has been inspired lately to use his automatic peddler and his hallucinations have dwindled. She reports it has been an answer for a better quality of life for both of them and promises to keep me updated.

Of course, it is difficult for people diagnosed with Parkinson’s to attribute an improvement in symptoms directly to their photobiomodulation therapy when they are getting other therapies at the same time.  Reports above are a general summary of the informal feedback I have received in emails and phone conversations.

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.

What follows is an email I have permission to post regarding the   photobiomodulation gamma device  from Vielight.  As with any therapy, do your due diligence in deciding whether this therapy is right for you.

“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.”

With 14 Small Steps Take a Giant Leap for Recovery

As of today I am opening enrollments for my Giant Leap for Recovery course which will kick off May 7th at 12:00 noon pacific time for seven continuous weeks. I am well aware many of you were unable to enroll because course was full before you had a chance.  Here is a second chance to climb aboard with others who are traveling down the road to recovery.

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.
