Forget About It

Forget About It

I have a recommendation for you to consider that you may well think is outrageous. I admit it. It is outrageous. But I predict if you follow my recommendation, you will be surprised and pleased with the result.

My suggestion – which costs nothing by the way – is to forget about the fact you have been
diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. My recommendation obviously needs an explanation which I will offer by way of explaining why some people recover from cancer and others do not.

Cancer Survivors

People who are more likely to recover from cancer have one trait in common. They forget about it. They focus their energy on making the changes in their life that are necessary to help their body heal.  They spend  time eating nutritious food, exercising every day and living their life to the fullest. They embrace their passions, especially those they have neglected.

People who do not recover from cancer focus their energy on the cancer itself.

  • They focus their thoughts and attention to where the cancer is believed to be located in their body.
  • They consider over and over again the methods that must be used to kill the cancer.
  • They spend their time in hospitals and clinics receiving invasive treatments.
  • They become intimately acquainted with the technical terminology used by medical doctors. In just a few weeks they sound like doctors.

When I just used the word “cancer” – did you feel a tinge of fear crawl up your spine? Did you perhaps think  to yourself …

Oh my! Having Parkinson’s is enough for anyone. Is it possible I have cancer too?

Just reading about cancer is traumatic for people. Guess what?  We all have
cancer cells in our body. Cancer cells are everywhere – in our toes and in our head. No one is exempt.  Most people give their cancer cells get far too much attention. It is this intense
attention and fear that feeds and nourishes the cancer to grow rapidly and thrive. It gives them energy.

Who Recovers from Parkinson’s Disease?

Permit me now to apply the same ideas about cancer to Parkinson’s. Didn’t you go
into fear just like everyone else when you were told you had “Parkinson’s disease”?
I say : Forget about it.

Drain the entire experience of being told you have this “disease” town the toilet. I predict you will be much happier.

  1. You will have more enthusiasm.
  2. You will have more time to focus attention on taking the positive steps needed to reverse your symptoms.
  3. You will enjoy spending more time with your family. You will regenerate your love of life.

Let the doctors and researchers agonize over a diagnosis. Let them worry which treatments to recommend for “Parkinson’s Disease.” That happens to be the work that they have chosen. Acknowledge that it is the job of medical doctors and researchers to sort through these issues. You are not being paid a handsome salary to think these thoughts. They are.

Centering your moment to moment thoughts on a diagnosis of Parkinson’s that your doctor has declared need not dominate or ruin your life. Any diagnosis – yours included – is simply the opinion of one person anyway.  There is no definitive way to diagnose Parkinson’s disease. My research shows there is a very good chance you do not have
what is labeled as classic “Parkinson’s disease. You have something else. Why get
depressed over a disease state you may have never have had anyway?

When you forget about it, you no longer have to think about whether a “cure” will be
found in your lifetime. Right? It does not matter a flip. You have forgotten about it. Let the doctors and researchers worry about finding a cure. Again, that is what they are being paid to do.

You are not being paid to think about a cure – so why bother? It
just clutters up your mind with thoughts that you can do nothing about.

I believe when you forget about it, you have the opportunity to become more mindful of all the signals your body is sending to you moment to moment. Symptoms no longer have an overarching label of a “disease.” They are simply discrete messages that your body sends to you moment to moment. The point of the messages you are being given is that a change is required of some type for your symptoms to resolve. Instead of trying to silence the symptoms with drugs, why not listen to them? Allow your body is talk to you.

  • Perhaps you simply need to drink more water.
  • Perhaps you simply need to breathe more deeply.
  • Perhaps you need to stop using a cell phone.
  • Perhaps you need to stop eating sugar.
  • Perhaps you need more exercise.
  • Perhaps …

If you insist on attaching yourself to the proposition you have Parkinson’s
disease, you are much more likely to wait around for a “cure” than to realize that in the moment, all you may need to do to feel better is to drink water, breath more deeply and exercise.

Focusing on a disease – Parkinson’s in this case – generates negative thoughts.
It activates and sustains depression. Focusing on your passions opens endless possibilities of exploration and experimentation.

  • Want to live a happier life despite whatever symptoms you currently experience?
  • Want to reverse depression?
  • Want to have more energy to live your life to the fullest?

Summary

Certainly there are many ways to accomplish these goals. One of the smartest and might I add cheapest ways is to simply just forget you have Parkinson’s disease. Let your doctor worry about a cure. Get on with the business of healing and pursuing your passions.
I predict you will be happy you did.

Survey Results for the Question: Is Parkinson’s Disease Degenerative?

Thank You For Providing Your Input to the Question:

“Over the past year, have you generally been feeling better, about the same or worse.”

Here is a summary of how other people have answered this same question: Your input will be added to the summary findings.

 Response  Totals

Have you been feeling: NUMBER OF ANSWERS PERCENT
total resposes: 970 100% 
BETTER 229 24%
ABOUT THE SAME 399 41%
WORSE 342 35%

Does This Result Surprise You?

I would suspect it does. Many people believe  Parkinson’s disease is degenerative. If this were true, 100% of persons who answered this question would report they were doing worse. In stark contrast to this expectation, two thirds of persons who volunteered answers to this question reported they were either feeling “better” or “about the same.

What Really Matters

Would you like to learn more about the therapies, techniques and methods that make it possible for people to celebrate relief from their symptoms and focus on what really matters? There are dozens of therapies purported to make a difference. Which ones do?

CBD Reported to Reverse Symptoms of Parkinson’s

Can taking CBD oil offer relief from your symptoms? We now have evidence the answer may be yes.

Responses are pouring in for my annual Parkinsons Recovery survey that gathers information about natural therapies that help members of my audience celebrate symptom relief.  People report using many unique therapies, techniques and  approaches that make a difference.

I will be posting summaries results. Floating to the top of the list of therapies reported to cbd oilbe useful is CBD oil which is now legal in all US states. It clearly helps some people but as with all therapies not everyone.

If you have not had an opportunity to try CBD oil, I recommend CTFO (Changing The Future Outcomes).

https://parkinsonsrecovery.myctfo.com/

I am comfortable recommending this as a source because they have an excellent product with high penetration and the highest quality in the industry. They also offer a full 100% refund if the used empty  bottle is returned with 60 days after purchase. There is no risk to trying this as a treatment option. If it does not help, you are only out the cost of shipping.

About CBD Oil

The endocannabinoid system has attracted considerable interest as a potential therapeutic target in numerous pathological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis, as well as anorexia and irritable bowel syndrome. It is s involved with a variety  physiological processes such as  energy balance, appetite stimulation, blood pressure, pain modulation, embryogenesis, nausea and vomiting control, memory, learning and immune response among others.

CBD Research

Clinical research on CBD (cannabidiol) includes studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain. A listing of the studies is posted on the Parkinsons Recovery webpage listed below. Quite a few of the listed studies were published recently.  Researchers have been finding excellent results in their studies that are consistent with reports from users who reported symptom relief from the Parkinsons Recovery Survey this year.

The Gold Standard of Caretaking

A surprising number of persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s have spent their entire life caretaking others rather than taking care of themselves.  Friends and family alike become familiar with the “always available and reliable” caretaker of the family who is too often you!

Since caretaking is such a huge issue for persons traveling down the road to recovery, here are critical rules of caretaking to always keep close to your chest.

  1. Always – day in and day out – give to yourself the same care and attention that you give to others.  This is the number one rule for a reason. Most caretakers violate it all the time.
  2. You are not an endless resource for others to take advantage of anytime of the day or night. When you are not taking good care of yourself, you can be of little help to others. Why?
    • Your energy will deplete.
    • Your health will deteriorate.
    • You will resent taking care of others.
  3. Your needs will be different from your family and friends.
  4. You do not need to feel guilty about saying “no” to requests for assistance.
  5.  Taking time for unwinding is time well spent. How do you best unwind? (Note the question is not how should you unwind or how do others unwind.) What helps you relax, chill out and have fun? Do it.
    • Not occasionally.
    • Every day.
  6. You are not being selfish by taking time every day for yourself and only yourself. If you do not take time out of every day for yourself, you will do a lousy job when you are caretaking family and friends.

In summary, once a caretaker, always a caretaker. The recommendation here is simple: Just be a top notch caretaker of yourself.

Address Constipation: A Critical Step to Recovery from Parkinson’s

The big picture: Light Therapy has the potential to address constipation.

  • Parkinson’s symptoms originate in the gut.
  • Heal gut issues and symptoms will begin to resolve

Do you have constipation? The constipation must be reversed for you to get relief from symptoms. There are many potential remedies for constipation. Most therapies infuse the gut with one form of probiotics or another. Certain foods can also promote healthy bacteria in the gut.

Light therapy may also offer the possibility of infusing the gut with good bacteria. No need to take a probiotic supplement here!

Animal Studies find that light therapy promotes healthy bacteria in the gut. If this happens with animals, I am guessing humans will achieve similar results.

Many of you have been using the X-Plus Vielight light therapy to address symptoms such as memory impairment.. The class encourages you to apply the X-Plus on your gut once a day in addition to applying the light to your mid brain.

If you do not have an X-Plus device, information is available on the Vielight website: https://www.vielight.com.

If you decide to acquire one, be sure to tell the customer representative you are a Parkinsons Recovery member. The will apply a 10% discount. If you order the device from their website, the 10% discount will be applied on the shopping cart if you enter the coupon code healing4me.

The company gives you 6 months to try out their devices. If it does not offer symptom relief, you can always return the used product for an 80% refund. The risk is minimal.

How Our Brains Are Processing the Pandemic

Question:
Why are my Parkinson’s symptoms  worse during the Pandemic?

Answer:  An epigenetic change in your physical body which was most likely set in motion during the first years of life.  Unrelenting stress for a new born child results in “stress methylation.” A specific chemical molecule has attached itself to the on/off which is a part of every gene.

With stress methylation, the gene whose job it is to shut down the continuous flow of cortisol is deactivated. Since the switch is permanently “stuck”, we find ourselves as adults in an unexplained spin of worry, dread, anxiety and fear.

Since this anxious state is familiar as ingrained from the first year of life we do not really have any effective tools to un-stick the off/on switch.

All this means we can be instantly “triggered” and “set off” by the most innocuous experiences and stimuli. The recent events have been anything but “innocuous .”

Watch this wonderful BBC news explanation about the effects these stressful times are having on all of us.  The link below connects to a  2 minute news video that explains why your symptoms have likely become so much worse over recent months.

How to Reduce Exposure to EMFs

Studies now conclusively demonstrate that EMFs (electromagnetic fields) – which we are all exposed to – causes a wide range of illnesses including neuro-degenerative conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, autism, infertility, unwanted genetic mutations and even cancer. This is the health crisis of this century.

Most people do not take this problems seriously. Effects are not immediate nor are they felt by most people. They are cumulative.

EMF effects scramble the energy field which derails normal functions. Studies show that a modest exposure to smart phones clogs up blood cells. Blood transforms into cells that stick together like globs of jelly of different shapes//

Why is this a problem? Blood cells that stick together cannot pass through the small capillaries of the body which feed 75 percent of the cells. The size of the globs is too great to pass through the tiny  passageways of capillaries.

Are you perplexed because your detox problem is not showing the results expected? There is no way toxins will be eliminated from the cells if your circulation cannot access them. One factor could well be your continuous exposure to EMFs.

In this video I emphasize one small step you can take to reduce EMF exposure from one source: your smart phone. Do not put the cell phone against your ear when you talk. Use headphones (not ear plugs and certainly not a blue tooth).

Your neurons will thank you profusely.

Stochastic Resonance Therapy

Stochastic Resonance Therapy (SRT) was born in the German city of Frankfurt  when Dietmar Schmidtbleicher developed a new training device for Olympic athletes. Since then, the whole-body vibration device he developed has been studied and shown to be effective in the treatment of Parkinson’s motor symptoms. While you may have already heard of the benefits of vibration therapy and Parkinson’s, chances are you haven’t heard of SRT until now.

SRT is different from other types of vibration devices. It delivers randomized and non-uniform oscillations and perturbations to the body, whereas all other devices on the market deliver uniform, sinusoidal vibrations. The random nature of SRTvibrations elicits the automatic stretch reflex in the muscles, which leads to postural adjustments being made in the spinal cord and the cerebellum (the part of the brain that automatically adjusts movement patterns). These adjustments keep the head still and the body upright while on the device. Hundreds to thousands of stimuli are delivered to the spinal cord and cerebellum in a matter of minutes.

In the literature, SRT has been shown to decrease tremor and rigidity, improve postural control and balance, and lead to better gait patterns in Parkinsonian patients. For further information contact:

Light Therapy as Treatment for Parkinson’s Disease

Posted here is a YouTube video of a neurologist who uses light therapy in his clinic as treatment for Parkinson’s symptoms and other neurological conditions. The therapy illustrated in the video is not available in most medical facilities,

I have included below information about a light therapy (or photobiomodulation) device from Vielight that is similar and can be acquired for home use.

Research Reports Light Therapy Reverses Dementia

Light therapy has floated to the top of my list as a promising treatment for dementia and Parkinson’s after reviewing results of my 2018 Parkinsons Recovery holiday survey. A  surprising number of persons reported that light therapy (or photobiomodulation therapy invented by Vielight) had helped them get relief from their Parkinson’s symptoms.

Here is Dr. Lim’s explanation of photobiomodulation. He is the inventor of many of the  light therapy devices from Vielight.:

Light therapy is not new. It has been researched under a variety of terms for over 40 years: low level laser therapy or LLLT, laser biostimulation and most recently photobiomodulation. This noninvasive therapy has been used in clinical practices to treat healing-resistant wounds, ulcers, pain and nervous system injuries. More recently it is a therapy that has attracted the attention of researchers as a therapy for Parkinson’s and dementia.

A July 2018 a University of California San Francisco study conducted by Linda Chao PhD offered compelling support for its application to treat dementia. Eight adults diagnosed with dementia participated in the study. Four subjects received 12 weeks of self-administered Photobiomodulation treatments in their homes. Four were assigned to a control group. Treatments were administered using a commercially available device (Vielight Neuro Gamma). Outcome measures were assessed at baseline, 6-weeks, and 12-weeks.

Findings revealed significant improvement in cognition and functional connectivity. Dr. Chao concluded that photobiomodulation therapy is a safe, non-pharmacological therapy that can be used to treat patients in their homes.

Results of this study are indeed impressive. Large samples are typically required for a study to show significance. Despite its small size, this study showed significant results.

Light Therapy Research Reports Encouraging Findings for Parkinson’s Patients on Medications

For the past half century the “gold standard” treatment for Parkinson’s disease has been to replace dopamine that is presumed deficient with medicines and supplements. Let’s face it. After 50 years, these treatment protocols have shown limited efficacy and, unfortunately, can be accompanied by troubling side effects. Many who have elected these such treatment strategies have experienced an impoverished quality of life in the long run.

The challenges confronted by millions of persons with neurological challenges has motivated and inspired me to pursue investigations of other approaches that fall outside traditional treatment protocols.  One such approach that shows initial promise is light (or photobiomodulation) therapy.

Researchers have recently found evidence that light therapy is a promising therapy for persons experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The retina is believed to play a pivotal  role in the nigrostriatal dopamine system.  Light (obviously) passes through the eyes and shines on the retina which happens to be a close neighbor of the substantia nigra, the organ positioned in the middle of the brain.  I have drawn the logical conclusion is that – Duh – light should of course make a difference!

Light Therapy Research

A study by researchers at the Bronowski Clinic in Australia conducted a longitudinal study of 129 patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Subjects who were classified as compliant – meaning they used light therapy regularly – exhibited significant improvement over subjects that were partially compliant or non-compliant.

An encouraging observation of the compliant subjects was that the drug burden was less with fewer side effects. These results suggest that light therapy shows promise as a therapy to address symptoms of Parkinson’s and a therapy which might potentially reduce the role of medications to suppress symptoms.

I interviewed the inventor of a type of new photobiomodulation therapy called the Vielight Neuro Gamma device. While there is little systematic evidence that specifically addresses symptoms of Parkinson’s for this particular device, it is a therapy that certainly merits further review and consideration in light of the early research evidence on the merits of light therapy. Since diffuse light does not easily pass through the skull, Dr. Lim’s had the brilliant idea to pass the light through a device clipped to the nose. Now, in my book of creativity, that is inventiveness at its best!

Click the image below to hear the interview and learn more about Dr. Lim’s new photobiomodulation device called the Vielight Gamma.

Vielight photobiomodulation therapy

 

It would seem at this early stage that you cannot go wrong to be open to allow light to shine brightly on the surface of your body and of course your retina!

What has been the experience of persons with Parkinson’s symptoms who have been using the Vielight Gamma Device?

Thus far, over  sixty persons who listened to my interview on the Vielight device purchased the neuro gamma device using the 10% coupon code (healing4me) Dr. Lim provided to listeners of my Parkinsons Recovery Radio Show interview. Those who acquired the device were invited to return the device to the company after using it for six months if it did not offer relief from their symptoms they were looking for and receive an 80% refund.

More information is available here: https://www.vielight.com

The company reported to me that 10% of the Neuro Gamma unites were returned. One loose estimate of effectiveness is that approximately 90% of users are satisfied it helps address some symptoms. The odds are certainly in your favor that the device will offer relief from symptoms. Know also that it clearly does not help everyone.

I have also heard from a member of my audience who lives in Ecuador who is connected with a wide community of persons with Parkinson’s symptoms. He reports that virtually all users experienced welcome relief from some symptoms. For some, the most pronounced results were seen in the initial 4 months or so, after which the improvements tended to level off.

Anecdotal Reports about the Vielight Photobiomodulation Neuro Device as a Treatment for Parkinson’s Symptoms

As a 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 who are members of my audience 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 the Vielight photobiomodulation therapy when they are taking advantage of other therapies at the same time.  Reports above are a general summary of the informal feedback I have received in emails and phone conversations. One person told me it did not offer them the relief they had expected and returned the unit.

Like virtually all natural therapies I have documented over the past several decades, the Vielight Neuro Gamma device will not help everyone. Odds do appear to be in your favor if you decide to try it out.

Dr. Lim has has recently developed a device called the X-Plus which delivers light directly to the mid brain. This new device is currently out of stock due to high demand.  They should be back in stock soon.

For more information, visit the Vielight website. If you decide to try out the Neuro Gamma device, be sure to tell them you are a member of the Parkinsons Recovery audience and they will apply a 10% discount when you order. https://www.vielight.com

Are Parkinsons Symptoms Degenerative?

Results of the 2019 Holiday Parkinsons Recovery Survey

Results of the 2019 Parkinsons Recovery Survey that asked about Parkinsons symptoms  replicated results from previous annual surveys.

Bottom Line Result: Parkinson’s is not degenerative.

I asked members of the global Parkinsons Recovery audience who currently experience the symptoms of Parkinson’s to report how they were doing relative to one year ago. Here is the question:

Since last holiday season in 2018 have you been feeling better, the same or worse overall?

One hundred and five (105) individuals responded to the survey. If you happen to buy  into the false belief that Parkinson’s is “degenerative” people should report feeling worse with each passing year.  They will not report that they felt better or have been feeling about the same as last year.

More explicitly, if Parkinson’s is in fact “degenerative” the following results would be reported:

  • Number feeling better – 0
  • Number feeling the same 0
  • Number feeling worse-    105

Only such a result would confirm the false belief that Parkinson’s is “degenerative.”  This false belief is never qualified: Everyone is “expected” to be worse off. Isn’t this what you have been told?

This was not – I repeat not – the result of the 2019 Parkinsons Recovery survey. Sixty four percent (64%) of the respondents reported that they were either feeling about the same or better than a year ago.

  • Number feeling Better – 19
  • Number feeling the same – 49
  • Number feeling worse-    37

Isn’t this result exciting news?

I also asked respondents to list any and all therapies that helped them feel better. Dozens of natural therapies were reported to help reverse symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. I want you to know about several in particular that were reported to have been helpful so I shot videos about a few of them.

CBD Oil for Parkinson’s

New breakthroughs by CTFO in the science of CBD oil have resulted in the development of new CBD products that significantly increase its penetration with a resultant beneficial impact on symptoms.  Several short videos have just been posted on the new CTFP website that  explain this new discovery.  https://parkinsonsrecovery.myctfo.com/

What is the difference between CBDa and CBD oil? CBDa is a precursor to all CBD products. It CBD Oilis extracted from the hemp plant, more potent than CBD and more effective.

Why isn’t Everyone Taking CBDa? 
It is actually available only from CTFO. When CBDa is exposed to heat – it de-stabilizes. Researchers recently succeeded in stabilizing CBDa so that it does not lose its potency. CTFO has the patent on this process. Their CBDa products are called “10X Pure”.

If you have discovered CBD offers relief from your symptoms, I recommend that you investigate the new 10X Pure products if you have not already done so.

CBD Research

Clinical research on CBD (cannabidiol) includes studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain. A listing of the studies is posted on the Parkinsons Recovery website below. Quite a few of the listed studies were published as recently as the last calendar year and even in 2019. Clearly, researchers have been finding excellent results in their studies.

https://www.parkinsonsrecovery.com/parkinsons-cbd-research

If you decide to explore this option there is no risk involved. CTFO gives a full money back refund if taking its CBDa does not offer symptom relief. Simply return the used, empty bottle within 60 days to receive a full refund.

Check out the new CTFO videos to learn more about this new research development.  https://parkinsonsrecovery.myctfo.com/

My new course introduces simple techniques that shut down anxiety organized around the principles of EMDR therapy.  Some of you may have benefited by seeing a mental health counselor who administers EMDR. I encourage you to continue these appointments. I suspect most of you have not.

Discover how to defuse the Grip of Trauma when anxiety is driving you crazy. No mental health counselor need be involved.

In a set of four live classes with me to be offered each Monday beginning September 16th (with replays and notes always available) l will explain how you can safely benefit from accessing simple techniques which make it possible to defuse the grip of trauma, reduce anxiety and as a result, celebrate a relief from symptoms.

Chronic Pain

  • Do you currently experience periodic or chronic pain?
  • Are you currently taking a medications that have proven to disappoint expectations?
  • Have you set an intention to reduce a dependency on opiates and other pain relievers?

I have exciting news for you. A new CTFO product is available as of this week  which has been formulated to address the struggles  of people who experience chronic pain. If your answer to any one of the three questions above is yes, please take 3  minutes to watch the video posted on the CTFO website.

https://myctfocbd.com/parkinsonsrecovery/

Like most opiates the  newly formulated 10XPure 1000 Gold CBD product CBDA is a COX-2 inhibitor which leads to the relief of pain and swelling. I recently heard a presentation by neurologist Stephen Trobiani who predicts that this new product development may well  offer a welcome solution to anyone who suffers from persistent and chronic pain and is interested in avoiding opiates as a solution.

Of course we have no evidence at this point on whether this new product discovery will offer sustained pain relief, but I believe it is worth taking seriously and investigating further.  The company – CTFO – that developed it is one that I have no hesitation in recommending. They are a first class act.

For more information on CBDA (and how it differs from CBD) visit:

Now – a big reason I have no hesitation with a recommendation that you consider trying a new product for which we have no solid feedback yet is that CTFO offers a full, 60 day money back guarantee. Return the used, empty bottle within 60 days after purchase and receive a full 100% refund.

If you decide to give this one a try, please let me know the outcome!

Probiotic ME-3 Makes Glutathione in Your Gut

Glutathione and Parkinson’s Disease

Most people with Parkinson’s symptoms have a serious glutathione deficiency. Nasal sprays have been helpful to some people. Intravenous infusions have helped others. A new discovery reveals that glutathione can be made in the gut with the help of an enzyme called Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3. 

Natural Pharmacist Ross Pelton discussed the critical role of Glutathione for people who experience Parkinson’s symptoms during a recent radio show interview. The ME-3 new product development he discussed is previewed below.

Probiotic Research

Probiotic research is fast transforming our understanding of human health. Probiotics in general are invaluable for maintaining good health. We’re also learning we need certain strains that produce highly specified health benefits.

One of these strains is Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3. The startling probiotic breakthrough of ME-3 began in 1995. That’s when award-winning microbiologist Marika Mikelsaar, MD, PhD and her team of research scientists isolated the probiotic strain called Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3. This unique strain is able to produce the super antioxidant glutathione. Since then, Dr. Mikelsaar has dedicated herself to researching the numerous benefits of this revolutionary probiotic.

What’s so Important about Glutathione?

Perhaps you’ve heard of glutathione. Every cell in the human body uses glutathione to maintain cellular health. Scientists call it the “Master Antioxidant” and it’s absolutely vital to:

  • Maintain a healthy immune system
  • Support the health of cardiovascular tissue
  • Promote healthy liver function

You need healthy glutathione levels, but it’s very hard to supplement it—some research indicates that it breaks down during digestion. That’s where ME-3 comes in. You supplement with the ME-3 probiotic which produces the glutathione levels needed for optimal health. It’s a new paradigm.

The body makes the glutathione. It passes through the blood brain barrier because it is recognized as produced by body rather than injected from an outside source. May you enjoy learning about this discovery as much as I did.

What Is In A Name?

The brand name Reg´Activ® was created from the words “Active Regeneration.” This expresses what occurs when the patented probiotic Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 remarkably produces and recycles Glutathione, the “Master Antioxidant,” resulting in higher levels of active glutathione functioning in the body for a longer period of time.

Availability is Limited

The discovery that glutathione can be produced in the gut naturally has resulted in a high demand for Reg’Activ products.  The Reg’Activ Liver detox has been unavailable for months at a time.  Essential Formulas (which distributes the products) formulated the new ME3 product recently which has also been in high demand. I am now only able to order a limited supply of the Reg’Activ products, so I may have to place your order on back order. I will let you know if that is the case when you order.
