What Causes Parkinsons?

Below I have posted a clip of my 2009 interview with Naturopath Daniel Newman ND who answers my question: what causes Parkinsons?

He offers the common sense observation that environmental toxins cause them. Nonetheless, the conventional treatment protocol focuses on putting new substances and medications into the body, not eliminating the toxins that have created the problem.

Do most medical professionals focus on detoxing their patients who experience Parkinson’s symptoms? You know that answer to this question!

Detoxing is typically not a benign process. If the detoxification process overwhelms the elimination organs (the liver, kidney, large intestine, skin) you can become very ill indeed. Some members of my global audience tell me they were rushed to intensive care at their local hospital because symptoms became so severe.

Before a detox program is undertaken, all the organs required for a successful detox regimen need to be supported and fully functional.

If your elimination organs are not equipped to process the excess of toxins a process of “re-distribution” takes place. A toxic substance residing in a harmless location (like for example your buttock) is mobilized into circulation. Where does it land?

The body does not deposit the circulating toxin in the heart or lungs. These organs are  critical to survival. No. The body wisely deposits the circulating toxin to the extremities – the hands, feet and guess what? The brain. What was originally a harmless toxin lodged in a harmless tissue becomes a toxin that does considerable harm.

Daniel Newman points like that a successful detox program is just like cooking a delicious soup. You need to right ingredients in the right amounts introduced at the right time. Slow cooking is preferred over microwave blasts!

Summary: Is detoxing important for a person experiencing Parkinsons symptoms? Of course! Do you want to get rid of the toxins quickly? Of course. Should you? Duh. No. Best to collaborate with a qualified health care practitioner skilled with successful detox protocols.

Evidence on Recovery

A loudly pronounced belief is that Parkinson’s is a degenerative condition. People who espouse this belief never offer evidence for its veracity. I interviewed naturopath Daniel Newman, ND in 2009 who provided information about the recovery of his patients who experienced the neurological conditions associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s.

Note: Information about the potential for recovery was well known 15 years ago. People still believe it cannot be true!

Photobiomodulation for Parkinsons

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.

Vielight’s patented intranasal stimulation technology and microchip LED technology is an innovative tool for brain photobiomodulation developed by Vielight. My guest today is Vielight’s CEO Dr. Lew Lim. 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.

Vagus Neuro Duo

The Vielight Neuro Duo is is the result of years of engineering and research.

Clinical research with our technology has produced improvements in cognitionmemory and blood flow.

The Vielight Neuro Duo comes with both Alpha and Gamma modes.

  • Gamma (40Hz): focus, memory, brain energy.
  • Alpha (10 Hz): relaxation and sleep improvement.

Vagus Device

Recently introduced is Vielight’s Vagus device which enables non-invasive stimulation of the vagus nerve (VNS) via photobiomodulation (PBM). This device was engineered to enhance brain-gut connectivity.

Yoga

Exercise is a proven way of helping people with Parkinson’s reverse their symptoms. Many people think yoga is reserved for athletic types, but a dedicated group of individuals with Parkinson’s have found a program tailored to people of all levels and now practice yoga on a regular basis. Three members of the Yoga for People with Parkinson’s classes in Seattle, Washington tell their stories about how yoga has provided them with remarkable relief from their symptoms.

Is yoga a therapy that is right for you? Listen to these incredible student testimonials and decide for yourself. Yoga is a time-tested, natural therapy and if practiced on a regular basis you can expect often dramatic improvements in flexibility, strength, balance and peace of mind. That formula is hard to beat.

Vagus Nerve Plays Leading Role in Recovery

What is the most significant step that leads to reversal of Parkinson’s symptoms?
Answer: Reduce anxiety

But wait here you say. I have done everything imaginable to get my anxiety under control but with little success.

A little known solution that supports the parasympathetic nervous system (which is the key to reducing anxiety) is to stimulate and cleanse the vagus nerve. What is the big deal about the vagus nerve?

Its function has a direct impact on brain health. This nerve wonders through every organ including the digestive system, lungs and even the heart. Toxins not only clog the vagus nerve, they contaminate the brain and other organs as well.

Essential oil therapists recommend specific oils to cleanse the vagus like clove. Therapies are recommended to stimulate the vagus nerve with acupressure  that apply gentle pressure to the nerve itself.

Just introduced is a novel therapy that stimulates vagus nerve function – a Vagus photobiomodulation (light therapy) device from Vielight. I predict the Vagus device will prove successful in taming down the sympathetic nervous system which will reduce anxieties and anxiety attacks. This in turn will lead to a symptom relief.

1.Get anxiety under control.
2. A reduction in the severity of symptoms results.

Check it out this out especially if you know anxiety is problematic for you. I predict this new invention will offer welcome relief for many.

How to Activate Dormant Stem Cells

Lightwave X39 Stem Cell Patches

The Lightwave company has invented a patch that activates stem cells.  You apply the X39 patch to your body 12 hours each day. Patches are designed to trap infrared light energy when placed on the body. They secret a peptide called GHK that “wakes up” dormant stem cells. No drugs or chemicals enter the body.

Below is a link to a youtube presentation by the inventor of the X39 Lifewave patches David Schmidt:

The study abstracts listed  below do not specifically evaluate the impact of the X39 Stem Cell Patches on any specific chronic conditions. They do offer support on the impact of the GHK peptide secreted by the patches to rejuvenate dormant stem cells.

Stem cells facilitate healing chronic conditions from the inside out.

Brain Sci. 2017 Feb 15;7(2):20. The Effect of the Human Peptide GHK on Gene Expression Relevant to Nervous System Function and Cognitive Decline.Loren Pickart, Jessica Michelle Vasquez-Soltero, Anna Margolina

Abstract

Neurodegeneration, the progressive death of neurons, loss of brain function, and cognitive decline is an increasing problem for senior populations. Its causes are poorly understood and therapies are largely ineffective. Neurons, with high energy and oxygen requirements, are especially vulnerable to detrimental factors, including age-related dysregulation of biochemical pathways caused by altered expression of multiple genes. GHK (glycyl-l-histidyl-l-lysine) is a human copper-binding peptide with biological actions that appear to counter aging-associated diseases and conditions.

GHK, which declines with age, has health promoting effects on many tissues such as chondrocytes, liver cells and human fibroblasts, improves wound healing and tissue regeneration (skin, hair follicles, stomach and intestinal linings, boney tissue), increases collagen, decorin, angiogenesis, and nerve outgrowth, possesses anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-pain and anti-anxiety effects, increases cellular stemness and the secretion of trophic factors by mesenchymal stem cells.

Studies using the Broad Institute Connectivity Map show that GHK peptide modulates expression of multiple genes, resetting pathological gene expression patterns back to health. GHK has been recommended as a treatment for metastatic cancer, Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease, inflammation, acute lung injury, activating stem cells, pain, and anxiety. Here, we present GHK’s effects on gene expression relevant to the nervous system health and function.

Biomed Res Int. 2014:2014:151479. GHK and DNA: resetting the human genome to health. Loren Pickart, Jessica Michelle Vasquez-Soltero, Anna Margolina 

Abstract

During human aging there is an increase in the activity of inflammatory, cancer promoting, and tissue destructive genes plus a decrease in the activity of regenerative and reparative genes. The human blood tripeptide GHK possesses many positive effects but declines with age. It improves wound healing and tissue regeneration (skin, hair follicles, stomach and intestinal linings, and boney tissue), increases collagen and glycosaminoglycans, stimulates synthesis of decorin, increases angiogenesis, and nerve outgrowth, possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and increases cellular stemness and the secretion of trophic factors by mesenchymal stem cells.

Recently, GHK has been found to reset genes of diseased cells from patients with cancer or COPD to a more healthy state. Cancer cells reset their programmed cell death system while COPD patients’ cells shut down tissue destructive genes and stimulate repair and remodeling activities. In this paper, we discuss GHK’s effect on genes that suppress fibrinogen synthesis, the insulin/insulin-like system, and cancer growth plus activation of genes that increase the ubiquitin-proteasome system, DNA repair, antioxidant systems, and healing by the TGF beta superfamily. A variety of methods and dosages to effectively use GHK to reset genes to a healthier state are also discussed.

X39 Stem Cell Patches

Ian kindly gave me permission to post his experience using the X39 stem cell patches. His report follows.

I have had to 2 large squamous cell carcinomas removed in the past which, unlike others like them, did not respond to a cream I use. One was taken off by a surgeon under an anesthetic where I was conscience but didn’t feel the surgery.  Recently another one appeared but this time the cream worked perfectly! I had not long started on the X39 patches at that stage.

I have a dark patch on my face which look a bit like a melanoma which has been shrinking since I started  using the X39 patches.

My taste and smell certainly seems to be in proving. I had to go back to an old liquid B complex and found it extremely bad tasting. I always tolerated it well before.

One guy who buys through me as product partner who has been diagnosed  with Parkinson’s and Osteoarthritis. He reported that within 15 minutes of putting on the patch he could feel less pain in his left knee and it has continued to improve. He said that his PD has changed with not as  much dribbling and a slight improvement in tremors.

Photobiomodulation Parkinson’s Study

Photobiomodulation Parkinson’s Study Results Released

Finally! I have been eagerly waiting to learn results of a 3 year Australian photobiomodulation Parkinson’s study that examined the impact of light therapy (using Vielight.com devices (coupon code healing4me) on symptoms of persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Results have finally been published.

Documented reductions in symptoms far exceeded my expectations. Measures of mobility, cognition, dynamic balance and fine motor skill for the 12 Parkinson’s research subjects were significantly improved (p < 0.05) with photobiomodulation treatment for 12 weeks and up to one year. Many individual improvements were above the minimal clinically important difference, the threshold judged to be meaningful for participants. Individual improvements varied but many continued for up to one year with sustained home treatment.

The design of this study was eloquent. Participants were assessed for mobility, fine motor skills, balance and cognition before treatment began, after 4 weeks of treatment, after 12 weeks of treatment and the end of the home treatment period.

Researchers drew the following conclusions:

“PBM (photobiomodulation) was shown to be a safe and potentially effective treatment for a range of clinical signs and symptoms of PD. Improvements were maintained for as long as treatment continued, for up to one year in a neurodegenerative disease where decline is typically expected.”

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 Vielight photobiomodulation devices. This interview was conducted before publication of the photobiomodulation Parkinson’s study.

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.

Results of this photobiomodulation Parkinson’s study affirm these expectations.

YouTube player

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 Parkinsons symptoms.

After listening to this interview, I am even more optimistic about this therapy for Parkinsons 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.

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.

YouTube player

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

Photobiomodulation Parkinson's Study

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.”

Parkinson’s CBD Research

Does CBD (or cannabidiol oil) offer relief from symptoms of Parkinson’s disease?

Reports from members of the Parkinsons Recovery audience say that taking CBD oil before bedtime facilitates sound and sustained sleep. This was motivation enough for me to examine 2023 studies that evaluated CBD as a treatment for Parkinsons symptoms.

Two review studies that summarize the results of research  that evaluated the impact of CBD reported positive effects for anxiety, improvement of sleep quality and Parkinson’s symptoms in general.

Abstracts of the two recent review studies are reported below.

Research on CBD

J Cannabis Res. 2023 Jun 13;5(1):21. The therapeutic potential of purified cannabidiol
Saoirse Elizabeth O’Sullivan Sanne Skov Jensen Gitte Nykjaer Nikolajsen Heidi Ziegler Bruun Rhenu Bhuller Julia Hoeng


Abstract

The use of cannabidiol (CBD) for therapeutic purposes is receiving considerable attention, with speculation that CBD can be useful in a wide range of conditions. Only one product, a purified form of plant-derived CBD in solution (Epidiolex), is approved for the treatment of seizures in patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, Dravet syndrome, or tuberous sclerosis complex.

The areas in which there is the most clinical evidence to support the use of CBD are in the treatment of anxiety (positive data in 7 uncontrolled studies and 17 randomised controlled trials (RCTs)), psychosis and schizophrenia (positive data in 1 uncontrolled study and 8 RCTs), PTSD (positive data in 2 uncontrolled studies and 4 RCTs) and substance abuse (positive data in 2 uncontrolled studies and 3 RCTs). Seven uncontrolled studies support the use of CBD to improve sleep quality, but this has only been verified in one small RCT.

Limited evidence supports the use of CBD for the treatment of Parkinson’s (3 positive uncontrolled studies and 2 positive RCTs), autism (3 positive RCTs), smoking cessation (2 positive RCTs), graft-versus-host disease and intestinal permeability (1 positive RCT each).

Current RCT evidence does not support the use of purified oral CBD in pain (at least as an acute analgesic) or for the treatment of COVID symptoms, cancer, Huntington’s or type 2 diabetes.

In conclusion, published clinical evidence does support the use of purified CBD in multiple indications beyond epilepsy. However, the evidence base is limited by the number of trials only investigating the acute effects of CBD, testing CBD in healthy volunteers, or in very small patient numbers.

Cannabis Cannabinoid Res. 2023 Oct;8(5):716-730.Cannabinoids in Treating Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms: A Systematic Review of Clinical Studies
Karan Varshney Akash Patel Siraaj Ansari Pavan Shet Sohan Singh Panag 


Abstract

Background: Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a serious neurodegenerative condition impacting many individuals worldwide. There is a need for new non-invasive treatments of PD. Cannabinoids in the form of cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) may offer utility as treatment, and our objective was hence to conduct a systematic review regarding the clinical evidence for the efficacy and safety of cannabinoids in treating PD.

Methods: Screening, data extraction, and quality assessments were all conducted by multiple reviewers, with discrepancies resolved by consensus.

Results: After conducting searches in 4 different databases, 673 articles were screened. Thirteen articles were deemed eligible for inclusion in this review. It was shown that cannabis, CBD, and nabilone (a synthetic form of THC) were capable of consistently improving motor symptoms more than a placebo. All treatments improved various non-motor symptoms, particularly with cannabis improving pain intensity, and CBD improving psychiatric symptoms in a dose-dependent manner. Adverse effects were usually minor, and, in the case of CBD, rare (except at very high doses).

Conclusion: Cannabinoids have been shown to safely offer important potential in treating motor symptoms in PD and some non-motor symptoms. More large-scale randomized control trials for specific forms of cannabinoid treatments are required to determine their overall efficacy.

Bottom Line

Studies report that  CBD may well offer the opportunity to get temporary relief from symptoms. This is a valuable benefit in itself. When energy focus and motivation return, the business of taking the actions necessary to heal from the inside out can begin at long last.

As with any natural treatment option, be sure to check with your doctor to insure that use. of CBD will not interfere with any treatments your doctor has prescribed for you.

Reliable Source of CBD Oil

The source of CBD oil that members of the Parkinsons Recovery audience have been using is a CTFO product called 10xPURE™-GOLD Super 1500.

Circadian Rhythm Reset for a Good Night’s Sleep

The circadian rhythm, or circadian cycle, is a natural oscillation that repeats roughly every 24 hours. In this clip of my interview with Karl Sterling  a two step process is recommended for resetting your circadian rhythm. Why bother? This facilitates a restful night’s sleep.

Please take note of the fact that no medications are suggested or supplements recommended here. This two step process is a natural way to celebrate sound sleep which is the key to healing from the inside out.

Step outside for a minute the first thing in the morning and the last thing in the evening before the sun sets. 

Try this two minute fix if you have having problems getting to sleep and staying asleep.

Iron Toxicity Chelation

This clip from my interview with Steven Fowkes discusses an iron toxicity chelation method that will likely surprise you. As documented in previous posts the accumulation of excess iron can be a contributing cause of Parkinson’s symptoms. His solution to address the dangerously high accumulation of iron is eloquent and simple.

“I would say one of the things that potentially could be a critical factor for Parkinson’s disease is iron storage. I would tell anybody who has Parkinson’s disease to get their iron storage assessed clinically early in life. If they are accumulating too much iron they can off load that iron by donating their blood to the Red Cross. This is one of the things that is sadly under appreciated.

Iron toxicity can be a cause of heart disease in men particularly, and in post menopausal women. When women stop menstruating, they start accumulating iron like men do in their twenties, so twenty to thirty years of iron accumulation can actually get to the point where you actually start to “spill” the iron. At that point your entire health starts to deteriorate very rapidly, including your cognitive function.”

So, donating blood to the Red Cross can be a huge benefit to a
person?

“Oh yes. When I was doing volunteer work for the AIDS community, they did a study where they were transferring antibodies from people with high antibody counts to people with low antibody counts. The people receiving the antibodies actually did not get any benefit at all. But the surprise was that the people donating the antibodies got benefit.

I regularly give blood three to four times a year and have for a long period of time. I know that this is the best way to get rid of iron. If you are male and in your thirties, ask your doctor to give you a serum ferritin test. If you want, also ask for a transferrin saturation test and a TIBC which is a Total Iron Binding Capacity test. They are all relatively cheap. They tend not to be included in a regular annual physical because your iron status changes so slowly over time.

Normal blood tests that you get done by your doctor during an annual physical will measure the iron in hemoglobin, but it does not measure the stored iron. Hemoglobin iron and stored iron do not track with each other. Oftentimes they have nothing to do with each other.

When you are anemic, you can actually have dangerously high levels of iron, but it is not getting from your storage form into the hemoglobin. When your doctor puts you on iron supplements this can actually threaten your life.

You need to measure your storage form of iron to know whether or not you need to take B12 and folic acid to solve your anemia or whether you need to take iron to solve your anemia. In men this is critical because they do not menstruate. The only way we lose iron is to go out and fight wars, get injured, fall from trees, and get bitten by wild animals.

Get this ferritin test. If you come from a family with a history of heart attack rates in males, in their fifties or sixties, you will probably see that your ferritin will be high.  Just start giving blood.

Since iron toxicity is involved in Parkinson’s disease, men need to get this assessed. Post menopausal women need to get this assessed to see if maybe part of their long term program should be offloading iron.”

What Causes Falls?

Do you have problems with balance that result in falls occasionally? You may suspect the problem is a dopamine deficiency. I suggest an alternative cause – food poisoning which results in a plethora of bad bacteria in your gut.

The energy running through various meridians in our body is what keeps us alive. All of the meridians that connect to the head and brain are the digestive meridians – stomach, small and large intestine. Focus on getting your digestive system back on line and your balance problems should resolve.

Lightheadedness is a common symptom of food poisoning, that stems from the symptoms of nausea, fatigue and/or dehydration.People with food poisoning may also experience dizziness that presents as a symptom a day or two (or much sooner)  after becoming infected.

One such food poisoning is listeria. Symptoms may include fever, aches, stiff neck, headache, lost balance, mental confusion, and convulsions. Please note the symptoms of “lost balance.”

There is a natural remedy for food poisoning you have likely never heard about. I certainly knew nothing about until I had a serious bout with food poisoning recently.

It is called “Activated Charcoal”, a nonprescription supplement available in health food stores and supplement outlets. This is a natural treatment that has highly absorbent capabilities. For this reason, it is mostly used in various detox programs and  to get rid of harmful substances like food toxins.

Although it is a natural remedy there are side effects. These need to be investigated before you decide to take it. Also, be sure to check with your doctor before deciding to give it a trial run.

I personally wanted you to know about it because it helped reverse my dizziness and reclaim Rock Solid Walking after experiencing a scary assault of food poisoning. I took an activated charcoal capsule for 3 weeks or so afterward and now take one capsule when I eat out at a restaurant.

This may be a simple solution to a very troublesome symptom. Check it out!

Stem Cell Rejuvenation

 

 

Phototherapy  has been around for over a century. It uses light to facilitate healing the body from the inside out. Ancient Greeks studied the healing effects of different light frequencies.

How do the X39 Patches Work?

Your body emits heat in the infrared spectrum. The X39 patches are designed to trap this infrared light energy when placed on the body. It secrets a peptide called GHK which studies report reactivate dormant stem cells (see below). No drugs or chemicals enter the body.

Below  is a Youtube presentation by the inventor of the X39 Lifewave patches David Schmidt:

How to Order the Lifewave Patches

Order any of the patches from the website or directly from me. The website address:

Research

The study abstracts listed  below do not specifically evaluate the impact of the X39 Stem Cell Patches on any specific chronic condition. They do offer support on the impact of the GHK peptide secreted by the patches on the rejuvenation of stem cells throughout the body. Stem cells facilitate healing of all chronic conditions.

Brain Sci. 2017 Feb 15;7(2):20. The Effect of the Human Peptide GHK on Gene Expression Relevant to Nervous System Function and Cognitive Decline.Loren Pickart, Jessica Michelle Vasquez-Soltero, Anna Margolina

Abstract

Neurodegeneration, the progressive death of neurons, loss of brain function, and cognitive decline is an increasing problem for senior populations. Its causes are poorly understood and therapies are largely ineffective. Neurons, with high energy and oxygen requirements, are especially vulnerable to detrimental factors, including age-related dysregulation of biochemical pathways caused by altered expression of multiple genes. GHK (glycyl-l-histidyl-l-lysine) is a human copper-binding peptide with biological actions that appear to counter aging-associated diseases and conditions.

GHK, which declines with age, has health promoting effects on many tissues such as chondrocytes, liver cells and human fibroblasts, improves wound healing and tissue regeneration (skin, hair follicles, stomach and intestinal linings, boney tissue), increases collagen, decorin, angiogenesis, and nerve outgrowth, possesses anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-pain and anti-anxiety effects, increases cellular stemness and the secretion of trophic factors by mesenchymal stem cells.

Studies using the Broad Institute Connectivity Map show that GHK peptide modulates expression of multiple genes, resetting pathological gene expression patterns back to health. GHK has been recommended as a treatment for metastatic cancer, Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease, inflammation, acute lung injury, activating stem cells, pain, and anxiety. Here, we present GHK’s effects on gene expression relevant to the nervous system health and function.

Biomed Res Int. 2014:2014:151479. GHK and DNA: resetting the human genome to health. Loren Pickart, Jessica Michelle Vasquez-Soltero, Anna Margolina 

Abstract

During human aging there is an increase in the activity of inflammatory, cancer promoting, and tissue destructive genes plus a decrease in the activity of regenerative and reparative genes. The human blood tripeptide GHK possesses many positive effects but declines with age. It improves wound healing and tissue regeneration (skin, hair follicles, stomach and intestinal linings, and boney tissue), increases collagen and glycosaminoglycans, stimulates synthesis of decorin, increases angiogenesis, and nerve outgrowth, possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and increases cellular stemness and the secretion of trophic factors by mesenchymal stem cells.

Recently, GHK has been found to reset genes of diseased cells from patients with cancer or COPD to a more healthy state. Cancer cells reset their programmed cell death system while COPD patients’ cells shut down tissue destructive genes and stimulate repair and remodeling activities. In this paper, we discuss GHK’s effect on genes that suppress fibrinogen synthesis, the insulin/insulin-like system, and cancer growth plus activation of genes that increase the ubiquitin-proteasome system, DNA repair, antioxidant systems, and healing by the TGF beta superfamily. A variety of methods and dosages to effectively use GHK to reset genes to a healthier state are also discussed.
