I have an example today that illustrates a genuine challenge for many people. Here is the challenge:
Consider the possibility that something you have been exposed to over the years is the primary cause of your Parkinson’s symptoms.
- Perhaps it is something you put on your body like soaps or shampoos or toothpaste.
- Perhaps it is something you are exposed to like the toxic laundry detergent you use to wash your clothes.
- Perhaps the culprit is the food you eat because it contains MSG or other additives.
- Or, perhaps it is the denture cream you use.
OK. OK. I know many people don’t use denture cream, but stay with me here. This is just an illustration of an important idea which I believe affects every person in a body today. I have concluded from my own extensive research this includes everyone unless there are aliens walking in our neighborhoods we cannot see.
What is the big deal with denture cream? It can cause a toxic exposure to zinc which depletes the levels copper in the body. The body needs the correct balance of zinc and copper to function.
What is the consequence? According to a number of law suits that were recently filed against denture manufacturers, the side effects are:
- numbness or tingling at the extremities
- reduction in movement of extremities
- pain in the extremities
- episodes of stumbling while walking
- poor balance
- Decrease in stride of walking
- blood pressure issues
- sexual dysfunction
The list of side affects above are also include in the list of side effects associated with Parkinson’s which is actually very long and very extensive. If you use denture cream regularly, I suggest that you conduct your own independent research and sort out the issues for yourself. Ask your doctor about denture creams.
If you do not use denture cream, this recent string of law suits raises a different question: Are you being exposed to toxic levels of zinc through daily exposure to other toxins? Perhaps over the years with regular use, a toxic build up has formed in your own body.
I personally have a rather simplistic approach to toxins. I never use a product that contains ingredients with long, complicated names that sound ominous. Look at the ingredients in everything you touch, everything you put onto your body and everything you put in your body this week. When you are about to use it, take a minute to read the ingredients. You may be surprised to discover you have been adding a little poison to your body every day.
