Shifting Parkinson’s Disease Mindsets

Click the arrow below to hear my interview with Chris Hageseth MD:

This Parkinsons Recovery interview about shifting Parkinson’s disease mindsets is with Chris Hageseth MD who dates his first non-motor symptoms to 2004 when his sense of smell disappeared. In 2008 he developed  severe constipation which he has had ever since.  In 2011 he saw the emergence of a tremor in his right hand which progressed over the following year to involve his entire right side.

It went on to include stooped posture, shuffling gait, and problems with balance. A neurologist confirmed his diagnosis in 2012. He tried three different medications over the next four months but discontinued each one due to side effects or lack of efficacy.

His neurologist gave him one piece of advice: EXERCISE,  EXERCISE, EXERCISE.

A year later many of his symptoms had regressed.  He attributed his improvement to the intensity of  his exercise and taking up yoga. He established his first website: Sweating Out Parkinson’s
Disease. He intended to encourage other PWPs to follow his example.

By 2014 he was doing so well that he had a DAT scan to confirm the diagnosis of PD. It was positive.

Over the last year and a half, he explored  why more people aren’t doing better with PD. It was then that he started to examine how the mind may influence the course of PD. Exercise is the key to living a full life with PD, But if the mind does not believe the degree of improvement that exercise can achieve. Then improvement will only go so far.

Because of the problem of dyskinesia developing after five years on levodopa, he thinks newly diagnosed should pursue a program of great intensity and focus and manage their minds, so they realize they can live with PD and not require levodopa.

Chris offered marvelous insights into how he has been able to improve his gait significantly. Mindful walking has been a key to his recovery success which encompasses:

  • Standing straight
  • Pulling shoulders back
  • Pitching chest out
  • Directing eyes straight ahead (not down)
  • Walk swiftly always insuring safely
  • Focus on making the backward arm swing more vigorous (when arm swing is an issue).
  • Place your heels first
  • No scuffing shoes on the ground

Ketones as Treatment for Parkinson’s Disease

William Curtis talks about his efforts to understand how ketones have helped with his Parkinson’s symptoms.  He developed Parkinson’s symptoms at the age of 45 in the year 2000 and has been instrumental in collaborating with NIH researcher Richard Veech in Washington DC.

What follows are the questions I ask Bill during the interview today on Parkinsons Recovery Radio.

To learn  more about the new ketone ester visit this website:  https://www.ketoneaid.com/ 

How did Parkinson’s affect your life?

What led you to experiment with ketosis?

After the ketogenic exercise, what did you do to find out more about how ketosis could help your Parkinson’s symptoms?

What is the purpose of fasting?

What is the purpose of the morning fat and coffee mixture?

What happens when you eat too much carbohydrate?

What happens when you eat too much protein?

Can exercise take you out of ketosis?

Can stress take you out of ketosis?

What supplements do you take to support ketosis?

What do you think is causing the improvement in symptoms?

Have you been able to cut back on the Parkinson’s medications?

What do you think is going on as far as the disease progression you personally are experiencing?

Where do you think the use of ketosis in Parkinson’s is going?

What is a Ketone Diet?

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, limited protein and carbohydrate diet that encourages the body to burn fat.  When we eat carbohydrates, they convert to  glucose which is the primary fuel for brain function. When there is little to no  carbohydrates that are ingested, your liver converts fat into and ketone bodies. The ketones become natural food for your brain rather than using glucose as an energy source.

Ketones can also be produced by the body when you eat a high fat diet. A cocktail in the morning consisting of a drink composed of coffee, butter, whipped cream and coconut oil (and/or MCT oil) is used by some persons with Parkinson’s who pursue a ketone diet. The body uses the fats to product ketones.

BEMER
http://robert-rodgers.bemergroup.com/en-US

Here are answers to 3 questions that have been asked about the BEMER:

Why does a magnetic field permeate the human body?

or

How does the Bemer signal go through my body?

Answer:

Low-frequency pulsating magnetic fields used in magnetic field therapy diffuse at the speed of light and have wavelengths of thousands of kilometers in length. Due to these very long wavelengths they permeate all matter, including the human body. However, an electromagnetic field weakens very quickly with increased distance, losing its intensity.

Does Bemer Therapy work with my prescriptions and supplements?

or

Can I still using my prescription drug while on Bemer Therapy?

Answer:

As a preventative measure, BEMER serves to strengthen the body and improve its innate self-regulating mechanisms. It never replaces a conventional medicinal therapy prescribed by a doctor, but in optimal cases could lead to a reduction in the dosage of prescribed medication.

 

Are there any side effects of using Bemer Therapy?

or

Is there any harm to use the Bemer long-term?

Answer:

Side effects are understood to be undesirable accompanying effects such as allergies, bleeding, etc. To date, no dangerous side effects have been detected with long-term application.

Replay: Q&A about CBD Products Offered by CTFO

The replay link below takes you to the Q&A program today I hosted that is intended for customers, Associates and individuals interested in learning more about the CBD products offered by CTFO.  This is the company that offers a 60 full money back guarantee and the one I have determined is trustworthy.  Better yet, they offer the best prices on CBD products.

I signed up several months ago to be an Associate which is an option for you too.  While the cost of products is the same currently whether you purchase as a customer or an Associate, this will change soon. Apparently, Associates will benefit from lower prices soon (and there is no cost to becoming an Associate).

The first set of questions that will be addressed is intended primarily for customers. The second set is primarily intended for persons who have signed up for free to be CTFO Associates. Connection scoop is below followed by a listing of some of the questions that will be addressed.

Click the link below to access the replay of our Q&A today: 
https://InstantTeleseminar.com/Events/110046666

Q&A for Customers:

  • What is the status of shipments to Canada?
  • I am not interested in becoming an Associate. I simply want to purchase the CBD oil and try it out under the 60 day money back guarantee. How do I register as a customer rather than an associate?
  • Since I am just a customer, why do I have to create a user name and password? Seems like that is for Associates only.
  • When I registered as a customer, CTFO created a website. I do not want a website. What is up here? I would prefer that they take the website down.
  • How to I check on the status of my existing CBD oil order?
  • What is recommended about the concentration of CBD oil when it comes to the best buy? I see there are a number of choices – 300 mg, 750 mg, 1500 mg, etc. Is the total quantity in each of the bottles the same? Is the price the same?
  • Is the cost of products less if I sign up for free to be an Associate?
  • How can I save on my purchases?
  • How do I set up automatic shipping?
  • Can I simply call Robert to order?
  • If I use up the entire contents of the bottle that I ordered, can I really return the empty bottle for a full refund?
  • Besides the CBD oils, what other products does CTFO offer?

Q&A for Associates-

  • What are the required fees to maintain an associate status?
  • In order to earn the 20% commissions, do I have to set up auto-shipping and pay for a product each month that costs at least $47?
  • Since I will not lose the 20% commissions when someone orders from my Associate website if I do not set up auto-shipping, why should I bother to do so?
  • How often are commissions paid?
  • How do I set up payments to my bank account?
  • How do you recommend I market the CBD oils?
  • Is the cost of the products the same for me as an associate as they are for a person who is not an associate?
  • How can I save on the products I personally purchase?
  • If one of my customers returns a product, will my commissions be affected?
  • On the associates’ website can you order products from the home page under products or do you need to sign into your back office & order products from this area? What is the difference?
  • If I am selling products or going to sell products & I have not given CTFO my tax ID what should i do?
  • Tell me about the Tuesday & Thursday night conference calls & the call in information.
  •  Please explain the pay plan in detail including the many options available.
  • Are there any new developments with the company you would like to share. How is the company doing financially, etc.

Will Taking CBD Oil Reverse Your Parkinson’s Symptoms?

The truthful answer to this question about CBD is we really do not know. There is little research about it as a treatment for symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.  It is a new development on the horizon of natural therapies. 
 
Some people do experience relief from their Parkinson’s symptoms from  taking CBD oil. Will you? Maybe. Maybe not. The only way to know for sure is to try it out and see if it helps. 
 
If you are thinking of trying it I recommend you consider products sponsored by a company (CTFO) that offers a high quality, organic, high concentration (1500 mg) CBD oil at the best prices I have seen anywhere. 
 
 
Aside from these advantages there is one reason why I have no hesitation to endorse their products. You have the opportunity to get a full 100% refund if taking CBD does not help. 
 
So, why not …
  1. Check with your doctor about taking CBD. If they give the OK.
  2. Purchase the 1500 mg bottle of CBD oil (it costs about $100).
  3. Take the entire contents over the course of a month (give or take). 
If taking CBD is helpful – hooray I say. If it does not offer the relief you seek, you can return the empty bottle to CTFO for a full, 100% refund. 
The company offers this generous guarantee because most people find CBD is helpful.  
 
There are many natural therapies that can be tried these days. Most require some degree of a financial cost. Not this one. You can discover if CBD oil offers relief from your symptoms without worrying you may be spending money on something which does not help.  
 
Want to know more about CTFO? Join me tomorrow when I host a Q&A program about this CTFO company that offers this generous 60 day refund. Here is the connection scoop:

Mucuna Pruriens

What follows below is correspondence I received from Dovida, the wife of Michael Day who shares a wealth of information about Michael’s experience with taking mucuna pruriens.

Robert Rodgers PhD
Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease
https://www.parkinsonsdisease.me

Dear Robert,

I am taking the time to write to you today to let you know about the death of my beloved partner Michael. You might remember us – we live in Venezuela.

Both of us love what you share with the Parkinson’s community.  We also love and appreciate the generous time you have spent with us on the phone several times over the past 6 years. Michael contributed a deeply thoughtful piece on his relationship to this health challenge which you published on your blog a number of years ago.

I am also writing because I want to contribute to your community through an update on Michael’s experience using Mucuna, which remained a very positive one up until his death. I’ve also included some other things he had begun to experiment with.
I wasn’t sure where to post it so that it would be read by as many people as possible.
Perhaps you could choose a way to share this?

Regarding his death: Last month Michael and I both caught a virulent flu that’s going around. We almost never socialize and therefore pretty much always avoid the latest flu or cold. However, it was the birthday of the woman who takes care of our apartment building whom we adore. We had given her a gift and she came upstairs to thank us. 1 hug. That’s all it took.

With Michael’s challenged overall health, the flu quickly became double pneumonia and 2 weeks later he died on Saturday morning, July 21st. He was 64 yrs young.
He died at home with me, our friend who lives with us, and a nurse who was taking care of him with IVs, antibiotics, oxygen etc. We had done our best to create a stay at home hospital experience for him.

Michael managed to tell me he loved me earlier that morning and our friend tells me I whispered the same in his ear just before he died. My memory is a blur of those last moments. Having the neurological challenges of Parkinson’s made it harder for Michael to cough out the mucous that filled his lungs.

I ask people with the same challenge to please take extra care to avoid getting a chest infection. You may be at a disadvantage and not have as strong a capability of coughing than most people.

Robert, I believe that everything is Love/Consciousness, including the bacteria that killed Michael’s body. It is not possible for anything else to be true. There is nothing in existence that isn’t loving awareness. ll of the universe worked in harmony to carry Michael into the next stage.

Even Michael himself had made some unusual choices in the prior few weeks that greatly weakened his body. He was doing some writing and became like a man possessed, not stopping to eat or drink. It was wrecking his neurology – making his whole body writhe and shake – yet he felt compelled to keep going. I couldn’t convince him to stop and did not try that hard either because I implicitly have always trusted Michael and his own inner guidance.  Now I can look back and see how the choices were lining up to bring him to this transition from in the body to outside the body.

I’ve had Michael’s body cremated and at some point I will take the ashes to Indiato place in the sacred river Ganges. I’ll be staying on Isla de Margarita for now. It is a gentle place with warm ocean water and it’s incredibly inexpensive to live here. $150-$200/month is plenty, which is a blessing since my body isn’t yet in great health (fibromyalgia) and able to work.

Michael and I were together literally almost every day of the past 29 years. I keep wondering when I’m going to fall apart. But instead of crumbling I feel tremendous love and spiritual energy pouring into me, no doubt a lot coming from Michael. He is a very highly evolved soul.

My focus now is doing everything I can to let go of the chronic body pain I’ve carried so many years. Also, waking up and becoming established in remembering my true Self – experiencing the Oneness that Is – that’s forever on my plate, too.

Mucuna Pruriens

Here is the scoop on Mucuna Pruriens for Parkinson’s and a detailed description of Michael’s experience with it. ome people use it as an adjunct to medication like Sinemet in order to reduce the amount of medication, and then there are people like Michael who either want a more natural approach or have too many side effects with sinemet that use mucuna exclusively. Michael was never able to tolerate any of the medications and all natural strategies had failed up until what I describe below.

Michael had tried mucuna pruriens years ago – we bought some on Amazon.
What we didn’t realize was that Michael needed a much higher extract of mucuna.
The extract you can get from mucuna is L Dopa. The stuff we bought on amazon was only 15% L Dopa. Eventually we befriended a woman in the Netherlands that was getting great results with a 98% L Dopa extract of Mucuna that she was buying from someone in Australia (who got his supply from China). The 2 main source countries are India and China.

At the point that we learned this information, Michael was in very dire straits.
This was the winter of 2016. He was 97% dependent- he needed help dressing, eating, turning over in bed, covering himself with the sheet, bathing and even wiping his butt. He was considered Stage IV Tremor Dominant Parkinson’s by his neurologist. He could walk a little, falling forward and grabbing the walls for support. He could barely speak at an audible level and his diction was terrible.
He would have to whisper in my ear and I would decipher it. He also had constant tremendous pain due to muscle stiffening in his arms and legs. I had started interviewing 24/7 care because it was quickly becoming more than me and our friend who lived with us could handle.

I bought some of the 98% L Dopa and within 3 weeks of starting it Michael could go outside and walk. All pain left and all neurological symptoms improved. By 6 weeks he was 100% independent and he remained 100% independent until his death in July 2018 from a flu that progressed quickly into double pneumonia. His body had desperately needed L Dopa and this high potency mucuna gave it to him. He still had some tremor and low energy but everything was better. Even skin problems cleared up.

Eventually I found a source in the US that sells 99% extract and actually charges less than anyone else. Michael started with a dose of 300 mg just to see if he could tolerate it. He was always very sensitive. The effects initially lasted 3-4 hrs. This was January 2017.

Slowly we raised the dose to 700 mg 4-5x/day and eventually 850 mg 5x/day. Over time he did require more mucuna as well as more often – every 2-3 hours. He and got up to 1200 mg 5-6x/day this past year. Most people using mucuna don’t get the horrible side effect of dyskinesias (uncontrollable movements) that many people get from the drugs. At about 1200 mg mucuna, Michael did have some dyskinesia and he cut back to 1100 mg which reduced them. I know a woman that manages with 650 mg 4x/day for many years and a woman who uses a large dose of 5000 mg 3x/day for many years. Neither experience dyskinesias.

Everyone is different in terms of dose. You just start low and experiment.
I’ve also wondered about it being even more beneficial to add in some non-L-Dopa extract version of mucuna since the entire plant has many desirable healing properties. Places like Banyan Botanicals carry good quality organic whole plant mucuna if you want to try that along with the 98-99% L Dopa extract of Mucuna.

As a reference point – at Michael’s high dose of 1100-1200 mg 6x/day, a kg that costs $185 would last 2-3 months. In recent months Michael began experimenting with adding 5HTP and L-Tyrosine to better balance out his neurotransmitters and possibly increase the benefit of the mucuna.

He learned about these additions from John Grey’s work on improving brain health.
Michael had yet to notice any difference but it really could have been too soon to judge plus he didn’t take these extra amino acids consistently.

Michael was also experimenting with taking mannitol to extend the effect of the mucuna. He took 1 beano-type capsule along with it to prevent gas and bloating which can happen with mannitol. It was a little soon to tell but Michael felt it was helping and he didn’t get bloating.

Many people who take Parkinson’s medications have to contend with nausea from the drug. It’s the L Dopa/ levodopa causing nausea. Michael did get nausea when he started on mucuna, but eventually we discovered that taking about 1000-2000mg of straight Vitamin C from ascorbic acid at the same time as the mucuna worked perfectly and he never had nausea again.

This is also working to prevent nausea for some friends who are also taking mucuna.
It can’t be buffered C- it needs to be ascorbic acid, which thankfully is very inexpensive. (You can get ascorbic acid at a great price at the same place that sells the mucuna). 

Candied ginger can also work for nausea but then you’re also getting a lot of sugar so we were really happy to discover the Vit C worked. Mucuna extract is a tasteless white to off-white powder. I mixed it along with the Vit C into some room temp herbal tea sweetened with honey (preferably raw honey that has more healing properties).
Honey always helped Michael swallow.

Here is the US based company I bought mucuna from at a good price. We’ve also referred a number of people to this source and the mucuna is helping them, too.
(I’m not an affiliate and I get no financial benefit if you buy here).

https://www.nutrivitashop.com/l-dopa-100-pure-levodopa-mucuna-pruriens-dopamine/

You’ll also need a good mg scale so you can be exact in your dose. Here’s a link to a scale that has worked well for me.

Scale: there are similar ones on Amazon that have even better reviews, but this one has always worked for me and has not needed recalibration even after 18 months of frequent use. https://amzn.to/2BbNr0l

One more thing to mention that may help your readers.There is a Chinese Herbal Formula that has helped many people with tremors. A friend of Michael’s has used it for many months with great benefit. Michael had barely started it when he died so I can’t comment on his experience. 

Here’s one place that sells it. If you email me I can tell you more about dosage. This place seems to have the best price and you can get 10% off using code: Wholesale https://www.maxnature.com/plumflower-tian-ma-gou-teng-san.html

Please feel free to post my email address of dovidagoodman@gmail.com I’m happy to answer questions about anything I’ve written here.

Warmest regards,

CBD Oil and Parkinson’s Disease

Last week I hosted a Parkinsons Recovery radio show that highlighted a company (CTFO) that sells a high quality CBD oil at affordable prices. Since the interview I have received many inquiries from listeners asking about whether taking CBD can help their Parkinson’s symptoms. Naturally, each question differs in content, but the nature of the question is the same.

I am asked:

“I have (a list of Parkinson’s symptoms here) – will taking CBD oil help me?”

Because I have received so many questions like this I thought it prudent to post my response here.

Answer to the Question about CBD Oil:

There is no way to know whether taking CBD oil will offer you relief from the symptoms you describe. As a new therapy, there is very little research evidence. And with virtually all
natural therapies, I have concluded that any natural therapy (like taking CBD) will help some people but not necessarily other people who experience Parkinson’s symptoms.

There is little research evidence that uses Parkinson’s patients. Studies have found positive effects for the use of CBD on anxiety, stress and PTSD. You can review abstracts of these studies on www.pubmed.com (the US government’s index of scientific studies).

You can also access videos posted by persons with Parkinson’s symptoms on Youtube. Visit www.youtube.com. Search using the terms “CBD Parkinson’s” or variants thereof. The listing of videos will populate.

I encourage you to review what evidence does exist (however limited). Of course talk with your doctor about taking CBD before making a final decision.

If you decide to try it, I recommend you purchase CBD (preferably the high concentration
1500 mg CBD oil) from CTFO. Why? Because they offer a 60 day guarantee. You only have to
return the used bottle to them to claim a full refund if it does not help address your symptoms.

  • CBD products offered by CTFO have high quality.
  • They offer a high concentration 1500 mg CBD.
  • You cannot beat the risk free opportunity to see if taking CBD will help.

To summarize, no one can say whether taking CBD oils will help you or not. But, you can find out for yourself by trying it out. That is the “gold standard” test which will offer you a reliable answer to the question you have asked me to answer.

Source of High Quality, Affordable CBD Oil

I have been asked repeatedly over the last several years for a recommendation on a reliable, high quality, low cost source of CBD oil. The CBD marketplace has been crazy these last two years. Companies come and go. Some falsify what they have to offer. Some rip you off. I have been genuinely perplexed and confused about what source of CBD oil I could recommend with confidence.

Some companies sell CBD oils that are outrageously expensive with a very low concentrations (as little as 25 mg). Because CBD oils are a new and very popular therapy, most companies are selling CBD oils at outrageous prices. Great when CBD helps suppress symptoms. Not great when they are so expensive.

Thanks to a vigilant member of my listening audience – I have at long last identified a company that I feel comfortable recommending: CTFO. Click the arrow below to hear a replay of my interview with John (who I signed up as an associate with) and Brad (a representative of the company) about CTFO.

Just to be clear – most of my radio show interviews involve generic information about therapies and programs that help people address their symptoms. This interview focuses on information about a specific company that offers CBD oils. Click below to discover the CTFO products. The company sells a high quality, high concentration CBD oil at – most importantly – competitive prices.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

Today I hosted a fascinating radio show interview with Natural Pharmacist Ross Pelton PhD 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.

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.

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.

Giant Leap for Recovery
$196

For more information visit:
https://www.parkinsonsrecovery.com/giant-leap-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.
