Is Pneumonia a Possible Cause of Parkinson’s Disease?


My father has Parkinson’s. I swear
that he developed Parkinson’s or at
least the obvious symptoms of Parkinson’s
after directly having had pneumonia.
Is it possible that having pneumonia
triggered his nervous system to trigger
the Parkinson’s?



There are many factors that have been
identified in the research literature
that are believed to cause the symptoms
of Parkinson’s. Pathogens and bacteria
are some of the many factors that have
been suggested as probable causes.

So, the answer is yes. It is especially
revealing that his symptoms were linked
to his pneumonia. It is also curious
to me that the leading cause of death
for people with Parkinson’s is pneumonia.

Some health care practitioners say
today that pathogens are the leading cause
of many diseases. The problem is that
antibiotics do not eliminate all of the
bacteria or pathogens in the body.
You can be sure that there is a residue of
the pneumonia bacteria that remains lodged
deep in the tissues of your father’s body.

The good news is that you can do something
about the problem of bacteria and pathogens
in the body. I will be interviewing a number
of health care providers (naturopaths, doctors, etc.)
over the coming months who are experts in
the area of pathogens in the  body and who use
effective approaches for addressing this problem.

Stay tuned.
