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.

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.

Restless Leg Syndrome, Excessive Shaking and More

Here is a short list of some of the questions I answered in Part IV of my Q&A program today concerning the causes and treatments for symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

  • How can I go about reducing the dosage of medications I take? They are not working for me.
  • I want to know more about the Aquas.
  • What can I do for Restless Leg Syndrome?
  • What is the best way to control excessive shaking?
  • What about amino acid therapy as a treatment for Parkinson’s symptoms?
  • How can I stop my intercostals from contracting, worsening by 3 am and awakening me at night?
  • What about parasites, worms, and smaller creatures like mold, fungus, staph infections, etc. What role do they play if any?

Infections and Parkinson’s Disease

With regard to infections and Parkinson’s disease, in my wife’s case, taking B12, folic acid and other supplements were not effective in raising her hemoglobin. I even tried that carao fruit advertised on the web…nothing there either!

When she had a UTI infection 2 years ago, her hemoglobin dropped drastically to 77, which is about 35 points below the min range! Therefore, we know that infections of various kinds do adversely affect hemoglobin.


Infections and Parkinson’s Disease

Well, this is interesting. Perhaps her primary problem is rooted in an infection. Have you been following my work on the role of infections and Parkinson’s disease as they affect the function of the body and aggravate neurological symptoms? It may well  be productive to pursue the possibility that an infection is the primary culprit. I would certainly place it on my list of primary suspects.

It is well known that infections can cause Parkinson’s symptoms.  Lyme disease, for example, presents the same symptoms as Parkinson’s. We also have evidence that taking LDN reduces symptoms in some people.  Low dose naltrexone (or LDN) boosts the immune system. When the immune system functions at peak capacity the body is able to eliminate the infections that can cause the symptoms.

I have aired a number of radio shows that speak to the connection of infections and Parkinson’s Disease.  You can preview the shows over the past four years and listen to any that call out to you. They are all archived at this time”
