Since everyone depends on water for our very survival, it makes perfect sense that dehydration will inevitably result in problematic symptoms of one type or another. Persons searching for ways to reverse the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease will discover many options exist. Without adequate hydration however, most of these options will have little chance of success.
Jaroslav Boublik PhD answers a wide variety of questions in my interview with him about the effects of dehydration on your health and what you can do about it. Dr. Boublik’s area of research centers around the effects of dehydration and is a co-developer of the Aquas.https://www.aquas4life.com
The Aquas are a homeopathic remedy developed by Dr. Boublik to facilitate good hydration throughout the body.
Here is a listing of the questions he answers:
Isn’t it possible to get better hydrated by simply drinking more water?
Why does the body become more dehydrated as we age?
Why is hydration so essential to a detox program?
How does taking the following foods help or hinder hydration: salt, energy drinks, coffee, tea, alcoholic beverages and soft drinks.
How can a person know whether they are dehydrated?
What are the issues with the sources of drinking water?
What are the issues with structured water products?
Take a Giant Leap for Recovery in 2019
By Taking 14 Small Steps in January and February
Tuition $148 2019 Classes Begin January 8th Early Bird Tuition of $98 Available Now
After 14 years of intensive research I have documented dozens of natural therapies that offer relief from symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. When I began my search I expected to find several good therapies at best. The good news is that there are many.
So many in fact, that many members of my audience have become overwhelmed and frustrated with the options. More and more people are asking …
Where do I start?
Which options are right for me?
Which therapies offer the promise of relief from my symptoms?
What has happened is unexpected. Many people do not even know where to start or how. The first step is often never taken due to confusion and frustration over the overload of information about what works and what does not work. Surfing the internet will make your hair fall out! There is just too much information out there for any single person to digest.
I have thoroughly documented these therapies in Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease. and in my recent book – 2018 Update. The good news is that most therapies do offer relief to one extent or another. Some people have better success with some therapies than others. The bad news is that most offer temporary relief.
This past year I focused my attention on identifying steps that can be taken to achieve long lasting relief. How can a person heal from the inside-out rather than paying lots of money for therapies that offer temporary relief at best? What I have discovered over the past year is that there is no single therapy, action or habit that does the trick. Yes, many people seek this type of solution without success. Why?
The key to achieving relief from Parkinson’s symptoms that is sustained in the long run is to quiet and calm the sympathetic nervous system and put the parasympathetic nervous system in the driver’s seat (most of the time). Medicines do not accomplish this, nor do supplements. Simple, easy to do steps must be taken that can offer long lasting relief from symptoms.
This insight has inspired the development of my course, Giant Leap for Recovery. Is it possible to experience a leap in recovery by embracing a single approach? My answer is no. You make it happen by taking small steps that, little by little, result in big wins.
Long lasting relief from symptoms results from taking small steps, one by one. At the end of the journey, you can look back at the starting point and celebrate the progress that has made it possible to take a giant leap for recovery. One of the reasons more people do not get well is that they are forever looking for that one solution that will fix everything. Such a one stop “fix” to the problem does not exist now nor will it ever exist in the future.
America succeeded in being the first nation to land and walk on the moon by breaking down the problem into tiny parts to be solved. This remarkable feat was not accomplished with a single blast or one amorphous effort. It was accomplished by taking small steps, one by one. Recall the words spoken by Neil Armstrong when he first stepped on the moon:
That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
Giant Leap for Recovery Class Details
The first of 14 steps in my 2019 course will be introduced and fully explained Tuesday, January 8th at 12:00 noon pacific time USA. All participants are invited to connect live with me and others in the course to insure everyone gets an ongoing, solid foundation for recovery. I check in with each participant each class to address any concerns, answer all questions and discuss any topics of interest that may or may not be related to the step to be taken.
Participants connect live to the 14 classes using a computer or smart phone. You can also call in to the classes using a telephone. Using a computer or even smart phone is not required to participate. Local call in numbers are provided for most countries. Replays of all classes can be accessed through the websites.
Each class has a different website URL. Participants will receive an email notice from me of the website location of each class. Videos, audios and explanations of the steps will be provided.
The giant leap is now completed, I want to thank you for this approach. I was surprised by the result, it gave me more hope in finding my own reason of this disease. I am still working on it, after seven years of Parkinson, I only have 2 Sinemet (100/25) per day.
I try to minimize the medication and find a way to heal inside.
Thank you for your support.
All the best for you and your family
The second step will be introduced and explained Friday, January 11th at 12:00 noon pacific time USA.
Classes convene every Tuesday and Friday during January and February at the same time (12:00 noon pacific time). Dates for the classes in January are: 8, 11, 15, 18, 22, 25, 29 and dates for classes in February are: 1, 5, 8, 12, 15, 19, 22 for a total of 14 classes.
All sessions will be recorded and available for replay later in addition to the class notes which are distributed after each class. Participants from other time zones take advantage of the replays since catching the live classes becomes problematic.
What are the 14 Steps?
I am not going to tell you, nor explain them in advance. Really you say? Really. The entire point of my new course is to make implementation of each step easy, interesting and fun. I think it best that no one looks ahead at what is coming. After all, taking the challenge of recovery moment to moment is one of the keys to reducing stress! Fixing yourself in the future is one sure fire way to create unnecessary stress.
I do want to be clear that all of the steps will be taken by you with the resources you have available. This has nothing to do with suggesting you purchase and/or take certain supplements or seek out therapists of one type or another. For you to be in the driver’s seat, you need to be in full control of your recovery and not rely on others to fix you.
I can report that you are never going to be able to guess what the 14 steps entail. The purpose of them taken together is to provide the foundation for recovery that can be sustained over the long run.

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.
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.
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, sixty-one (61) persons who listened to my interview on the Vielight device purchased the unit 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.
The company reported to me that 15% of the Neuro Gamma unites were returned. One loose estimate of effectiveness is that approximately 85% 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:
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.
I have heard several specific reports on tremors that were calmed.
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.
Evidence does suggest that this therapy can potentially help with dementia.
One user reported a definite return of smell, but the jury was out on the effect on tremors and other symptoms.
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 14 years, the Vielight Neuro Gamma device will not help everyone. Odds do appear to be in your favor if you decide to try it out.
I just saw an announcement about a $5 trial bottle of ketone ester in my own email today. Early reports on the ketone ester for addressing Parkinson’s symptoms have been very encouraging. Can it help you or your loved one? You will not know until you try it out.
Today is a golden opportunity to find out if taking the new ester will offer relief from your symptoms. The ketone ester company linked below is making available a trial bottle of ketone ester for only $5. I would suggest you get two bottles. One may not be sufficient to see it if helps. You will need to take to entire contents to see if it helps. Visit the website below to order:
How about the title to this post – why do people die? It was inspired by my interview today posted above on Parkinsons Recovery Radio with Willem Visser, a craniosacral therapist. Now, a big part of his presentation was to explain more about what craniosacral therapy is and why it helps with symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Some of you who receive regular craniosacral treatments may well conclude that you do not need to take 30 minutes out of your day to listen to this particular Parkinsons Recovery interview that I hosted today.
Well, might I encourage you to listen anyway. Why? Willem summarizes the work of Aubrey de Grey, an engineer, who is now focused on answering the question posted in the title above. Now, the interesting twist to Aubrey de Grey’s work is that he argues it is possible to live very long lives – up to 200 to 300 years. How could that be possible?
Listen to the interview. Your interest will be tickled too. (hint: it all has to do with cellular death).
John Rollins PhD discusses the critical role that is played by Apoptosis and why it has such a critical influence on nervous system health. What is Apoptosis? It is the body’s natural process for repairing, regenerating and destroying damaged cells. Dozens of studies on Apoptosis are being published every day. It is one of the most researched topics out there right now.
Why is that? Researchers (including myself) have just realized that understanding Apoptosis offers a genuine understanding about what the body needs to heal at the cellular level. What is the bottom line of this understanding?
Most of us actually do not have access to some of the foods that are needed for cells to rejuvenate and regenerate. This explains why so many people who have launched an A+ recovery program have still not succeeded in reversing all of their symptoms.
Dr. Rollins discusses these issues in detail and offers a little history lesson about his longtime relationship with Dr. Bill McAnalley who was a recent guest on Parkinsons Recovery Radio and founder of Aroga.
Dr. Rollins explains how Aroga products and in particular the Core Pathways, Brain and Nerve Plus and Aloe 1 support and nurture neural tissue health. For more information about Aroga food products click on the link below.

Below are the talking points that Dr. McAnalley prepared for my interview with him on Parkinsons Recovery Radio where he explains why food can fix things drugs cant
Parkinson’s disease (PD), characterized with bradykinesia, static tremor, rigidity and disturbances in balance, is the second most common neuro-degenerative disorder. Alzheimer disease is first.
With the global trends in aging, the incidence of PD has increased year by year and the prevalence rate is up to 1–2% among the elderly over the age of 65 years. So far, there is still no exact cure for PD due to its diversity of etiology and complexity of symptoms.
Currently, Parkinson’s disease is treated with Levodopa and maybe Monamine, Oxidase Inhibitors (MOAs) or Acetylcholine inhibitors. Levodopa makes more Dopamine available for the dopamine receptor, MOAs increase the amount norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin at their prospective receptors and acetylcholine inhibitors make more acetylcholine available to its receptor.
None of which address the physical cause of the disease.
The cause of PD has not been completely elucidated, but it has been generally acknowledged that the improvement of oxidative stress is one of the most important patho-physiological mechanisms.
Dr. Bill’s research has focused on stopping the causes of diseases like Parkinson’s by:
The inhibition of oxidative stress:
PD patients are in a state of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is caused by the increase of free radicals in the organism, while the ability to eliminate free radicals is decreased at the same time. A large amount of lipid peroxide, such as Malondialdehyde (MDA), hydroxyl, carbonyl, etc., will cause cell death, which leads to neuronal apoptosis ultimately.
The mitochondria is the “power plant” and “energy conversion station” of cells. It also regulates the process of gene expression and apoptosis. Recent reports have suggested that mitochondrial dysfunction is closely related to a variety of neuro-degenerative diseases including PD.
The reduction of toxic Excitatory Amino Acids (EAA):
Glutamate (Glu), Also, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and enkephalin can can produce excitotoxicity effects on nerve cells. Glutamate creates an excitatory effect on nerve cells, and is toxic when Dopa Amine neurons are fully or partially degenerated.
The inhibition of neuroinflammation:
Neuroinflammation is a common and important pathological mechanism in nervous system diseases and different neurological diseases are involved in neuroinflammation at some stage. At present, it is believed that neuroinflammation was involved in an important cascade reaction in neuronal degeneration of PD.
When the central nervous system suffers from exogenous antigens stimulus, such as pathogenic microorganisms or foreign bodies, microglia will be rapidly activated. Then, the activated microglia cells can secrete various cytokines such as IL-1β, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, TNF-α, and IFN-γ, etc. The cytokines cause neuroinflammation.
The inhibition of neuronal apoptosis:
Parkinson’s is caused by the premature death of dopaminergic neurons by abnormal apoptosis activation. Energy for normal activities of brain cells comes directly from aerobic energy, and there is little energy storage. However once brain damage occurs, it will cause nerve cell apoptosis or death.
The Bcl-2 family of proteins regulate apoptosis. It is divided into two categories: anti-apoptosis gene (such as Bcl-2, Bcl-xL, Bcl-w, Bcl-1, etc.) and pro-apoptosis gene (such as Bax, Bak, Bad, Bid, etc.). Their ratio regulates apoptosis.
The inhibition of abnormal protein aggregation:
Misfolded and aggregated proteins play a key role in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s Disease. Protein aggregates differ from disease to disease. This common characteristic shows that protein deposition is toxic to neurons.
Studies confirmed that the activity of the proteasome dropped substantially in substantia nigra of patients with PD, which weakened the ability of the substantia nigra to degrade α-syn and other proteins.
Targeting Nrf2 to Suppress Ferroptosis and Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Neurodegeneration:
Nrf2 is a basic leucine zipper (bZIP) protein that regulates the expression of antioxidant proteins that protect against oxidative damage triggered by injury and inflammation. Several drugs that stimulate the NFE2L2 pathway are being studied for treatment of diseases that are caused by oxidative stress.
Listing of Core Food Ingredients that Address the Structure and Functional Causes of the Disease

Dr. Bill offered suggestions on the products he recommended for persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s. He recommended three
Aroga products: (1) the Core (2) the Plus Brain and Nerve and (3) the Bone, Joint and Endocrine (which supports hormones). At a minimum. the Core would take top priority.
Information about these products and the opportunity to order is available at:
Walter Mady discusses the importance of Physical Therapy for the Parkinson’s disease patient and the factors that have made the biggest difference in addressing his own Parkinson’s symptoms.
Walter Mady has been a Physical Therapist for 28 years in the private sector. Physical Therapists are healthcare specialists utilizing their knowledge of anatomy and physiology, therapeutic exercise, and ADL modifications when treating the Parkinson’s disease patient.
He specializes in manual therapy, orthopedic physical therapy, and is a specialist in exercise recreationally and therapeutically
Walter was diagnosed in 2008 with Parkinson’s Disease..
He will discuss and stress the importance of nutrition and exercise.
Click the arrow below to hear my interview with Chris Hageseth MD:
This Parkinsons Recovery interview about shifting Parkinson’s disease mindsets is with Chris Hageseth MD who dates his first non-motor symptoms to 2004 when his sense of smell disappeared. In 2008 he developed severe constipation which he has had ever since. In 2011 he saw the emergence of a tremor in his right hand which progressed over the following year to involve his entire right side.
It went on to include stooped posture, shuffling gait, and problems with balance. A neurologist confirmed his diagnosis in 2012. He tried three different medications over the next four months but discontinued each one due to side effects or lack of efficacy.
His neurologist gave him one piece of advice: EXERCISE, EXERCISE, EXERCISE.
A year later many of his symptoms had regressed. He attributed his improvement to the intensity of his exercise and taking up yoga. He established his first website: Sweating Out Parkinson’s
Disease. He intended to encourage other PWPs to follow his example.
By 2014 he was doing so well that he had a DAT scan to confirm the diagnosis of PD. It was positive.
Over the last year and a half, he explored why more people aren’t doing better with PD. It was then that he started to examine how the mind may influence the course of PD. Exercise is the key to living a full life with PD, But if the mind does not believe the degree of improvement that exercise can achieve. Then improvement will only go so far.
Because of the problem of dyskinesia developing after five years on levodopa, he thinks newly diagnosed should pursue a program of great intensity and focus and manage their minds, so they realize they can live with PD and not require levodopa.
William Curtis talks about his efforts to understand how ketones have helped with his Parkinson’s symptoms. He developed Parkinson’s symptoms at the age of 45 in the year 2000 and has been instrumental in collaborating with NIH researcher Richard Veech in Washington DC.
What follows are the questions I ask Bill during the interview today on Parkinsons Recovery Radio.
After the ketogenic exercise, what did you do to find out more about how ketosis could help your Parkinson’s symptoms?
What is the purpose of fasting?
What is the purpose of the morning fat and coffee mixture?
What happens when you eat too much carbohydrate?
What happens when you eat too much protein?
Can exercise take you out of ketosis?
Can stress take you out of ketosis?
What supplements do you take to support ketosis?
What do you think is causing the improvement in symptoms?
Have you been able to cut back on the Parkinson’s medications?
What do you think is going on as far as the disease progression you personally are experiencing?
Where do you think the use of ketosis in Parkinson’s is going?
What is a Ketone Diet?
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, limited protein and carbohydrate diet that encourages the body to burn fat. When we eat carbohydrates, they convert to glucose which is the primary fuel for brain function. When there is little to no carbohydrates that are ingested, your liver converts fat into and ketone bodies. The ketones become natural food for your brain rather than using glucose as an energy source.
Ketones can also be produced by the body when you eat a high fat diet. A cocktail in the morning consisting of a drink composed of coffee, butter, whipped cream and coconut oil (and/or MCT oil) is used by some persons with Parkinson’s who pursue a ketone diet. The body uses the fats to product ketones.

Still Experiencing Some Symptoms?
Listen to my radio show interview with Bill McAnalley PhD to discover the surprising reason why and what you can do about it!
Diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease three years ago. Don McCammon developed his own compound to treat his symptoms with considerable success. Don wrote an article describing his discovery. The name of the compound he developed is Syncolein. It is a natural product that does not require a medical prescription.
The primary ingredient in his formulation is Mannitol. For further information and to get your questions answered, email Don at: email@example.com
Here are answers to 3 questions that have been asked about the BEMER:
Why does a magnetic field permeate the human body?
How does the Bemer signal go through my body?
Low-frequency pulsating magnetic fields used in magnetic field therapy diffuse at the speed of light and have wavelengths of thousands of kilometers in length. Due to these very long wavelengths they permeate all matter, including the human body. However, an electromagnetic field weakens very quickly with increased distance, losing its intensity.
Does Bemer Therapy work with my prescriptions and supplements?
Can I still using my prescription drug while on Bemer Therapy?
As a preventative measure, BEMER serves to strengthen the body and improve its innate self-regulating mechanisms. It never replaces a conventional medicinal therapy prescribed by a doctor, but in optimal cases could lead to a reduction in the dosage of prescribed medication.
Are there any side effects of using Bemer Therapy?
Is there any harm to use the Bemer long-term?
Side effects are understood to be undesirable accompanying effects such as allergies, bleeding, etc. To date, no dangerous side effects have been detected with long-term application.
The replay link below takes you to the Q&A program today I hosted that is intended for customers, Associates and individuals interested in learning more about the CBD products offered by CTFO. This is the company that offers a 60 full money back guarantee and the one I have determined is trustworthy. Better yet, they offer the best prices on CBD products.
I signed up several months ago to be an Associate which is an option for you too. While the cost of products is the same currently whether you purchase as a customer or an Associate, this will change soon. Apparently, Associates will benefit from lower prices soon (and there is no cost to becoming an Associate).
The first set of questions that will be addressed is intended primarily for customers. The second set is primarily intended for persons who have signed up for free to be CTFO Associates. Connection scoop is below followed by a listing of some of the questions that will be addressed.
I am not interested in becoming an Associate. I simply want to purchase the CBD oil and try it out under the 60 day money back guarantee. How do I register as a customer rather than an associate?
Since I am just a customer, why do I have to create a user name and password? Seems like that is for Associates only.
When I registered as a customer, CTFO created a website. I do not want a website. What is up here? I would prefer that they take the website down.
How to I check on the status of my existing CBD oil order?
What is recommended about the concentration of CBD oil when it comes to the best buy? I see there are a number of choices – 300 mg, 750 mg, 1500 mg, etc. Is the total quantity in each of the bottles the same? Is the price the same?
Is the cost of products less if I sign up for free to be an Associate?
How can I save on my purchases?
How do I set up automatic shipping?
Can I simply call Robert to order?
If I use up the entire contents of the bottle that I ordered, can I really return the empty bottle for a full refund?
Besides the CBD oils, what other products does CTFO offer?
Q&A for Associates-
What are the required fees to maintain an associate status?
In order to earn the 20% commissions, do I have to set up auto-shipping and pay for a product each month that costs at least $47?
Since I will not lose the 20% commissions when someone orders from my Associate website if I do not set up auto-shipping, why should I bother to do so?
How often are commissions paid?
How do I set up payments to my bank account?
How do you recommend I market the CBD oils?
Is the cost of the products the same for me as an associate as they are for a person who is not an associate?
How can I save on the products I personally purchase?
If one of my customers returns a product, will my commissions be affected?
On the associates’ website can you order products from the home page under products or do you need to sign into your back office & order products from this area? What is the difference?
If I am selling products or going to sell products & I have not given CTFO my tax ID what should i do?
Tell me about the Tuesday & Thursday night conference calls & the call in information.
Please explain the pay plan in detail including the many options available.
Are there any new developments with the company you would like to share. How is the company doing financially, etc.
The truthful answer to this question about CBD is we really do not know. There is little research about it as a treatment for symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. It is a new development on the horizon of natural therapies.
Some people do experience relief from their Parkinson’s symptoms from taking CBD oil. Will you? Maybe. Maybe not. The only way to know for sure is to try it out and see if it helps.
If you are thinking of trying it I recommend you consider products sponsored by a company (CTFO) that offers a high quality, organic, high concentration (1500 mg) CBD oil at the best prices I have seen anywhere.
Aside from these advantages there is one reason why I have no hesitation to endorse their products. You have the opportunity to get a full 100% refund if taking CBD does not help.
So, why not …
Check with your doctor about taking CBD. If they give the OK.
Purchase the 1500 mg bottle of CBD oil (it costs about $100).
Take the entire contents over the course of a month (give or take).
If taking CBD is helpful – hooray I say. If it does not offer the relief you seek, you can return the empty bottle to CTFO for a full, 100% refund.

Will taking CBD oil offer relief from your symptoms? The truthful answer is that nobody knows that answer (not even you) until you try it. Here is a risk free opportunity to see if taking CBD oil might melt your symptoms.
I am taking the time to write to you today to let you know about the death of my beloved partner Michael. You might remember us – we live in Venezuela.
Both of us love what you share with the Parkinson’s community. We also love and appreciate the generous time you have spent with us on the phone several times over the past 6 years. Michael contributed a deeply thoughtful piece on his relationship to this health challenge which you published on your blog a number of years ago.
I am also writing because I want to contribute to your community through an update on Michael’s experience using Mucuna, which remained a very positive one up until his death. I’ve also included some other things he had begun to experiment with. I wasn’t sure where to post it so that it would be read by as many people as possible. Perhaps you could choose a way to share this?
Regarding his death: Last month Michael and I both caught a virulent flu that’s going around. We almost never socialize and therefore pretty much always avoid the latest flu or cold. However, it was the birthday of the woman who takes care of our apartment building whom we adore. We had given her a gift and she came upstairs to thank us. 1 hug. That’s all it took.
With Michael’s challenged overall health, the flu quickly became double pneumonia and 2 weeks later he died on Saturday morning, July 21st. He was 64 yrs young. He died at home with me, our friend who lives with us, and a nurse who was taking care of him with IVs, antibiotics, oxygen etc. We had done our best to create a stay at home hospital experience for him.
Michael managed to tell me he loved me earlier that morning and our friend tells me I whispered the same in his ear just before he died. My memory is a blur of those last moments. Having the neurological challenges of Parkinson’s made it harder for Michael to cough out the mucous that filled his lungs.
I ask people with the same challenge to please take extra care to avoid getting a chest infection. You may be at a disadvantage and not have as strong a capability of coughing than most people.
Robert, I believe that everything is Love/Consciousness, including the bacteria that killed Michael’s body. It is not possible for anything else to be true. There is nothing in existence that isn’t loving awareness. ll of the universe worked in harmony to carry Michael into the next stage.
Even Michael himself had made some unusual choices in the prior few weeks that greatly weakened his body. He was doing some writing and became like a man possessed, not stopping to eat or drink. It was wrecking his neurology – making his whole body writhe and shake – yet he felt compelled to keep going. I couldn’t convince him to stop and did not try that hard either because I implicitly have always trusted Michael and his own inner guidance. Now I can look back and see how the choices were lining up to bring him to this transition from in the body to outside the body.
I’ve had Michael’s body cremated and at some point I will take the ashes to Indiato place in the sacred river Ganges. I’ll be staying on Isla de Margarita for now. It is a gentle place with warm ocean water and it’s incredibly inexpensive to live here. $150-$200/month is plenty, which is a blessing since my body isn’t yet in great health (fibromyalgia) and able to work.
Michael and I were together literally almost every day of the past 29 years. I keep wondering when I’m going to fall apart. But instead of crumbling I feel tremendous love and spiritual energy pouring into me, no doubt a lot coming from Michael. He is a very highly evolved soul.
My focus now is doing everything I can to let go of the chronic body pain I’ve carried so many years. Also, waking up and becoming established in remembering my true Self – experiencing the Oneness that Is – that’s forever on my plate, too.
Here is the scoop on Mucuna Pruriens for Parkinson’s and a detailed description of Michael’s experience with it. ome people use it as an adjunct to medication like Sinemet in order to reduce the amount of medication, and then there are people like Michael who either want a more natural approach or have too many side effects with sinemet that use mucuna exclusively. Michael was never able to tolerate any of the medications and all natural strategies had failed up until what I describe below.
Michael had tried mucuna pruriens years ago – we bought some on Amazon. What we didn’t realize was that Michael needed a much higher extract of mucuna. The extract you can get from mucuna is L Dopa. The stuff we bought on amazon was only 15% L Dopa. Eventually we befriended a woman in the Netherlands that was getting great results with a 98% L Dopa extract of Mucuna that she was buying from someone in Australia (who got his supply from China). The 2 main source countries are India and China.
At the point that we learned this information, Michael was in very dire straits. This was the winter of 2016. He was 97% dependent- he needed help dressing, eating, turning over in bed, covering himself with the sheet, bathing and even wiping his butt. He was considered Stage IV Tremor Dominant Parkinson’s by his neurologist. He could walk a little, falling forward and grabbing the walls for support. He could barely speak at an audible level and his diction was terrible. He would have to whisper in my ear and I would decipher it. He also had constant tremendous pain due to muscle stiffening in his arms and legs. I had started interviewing 24/7 care because it was quickly becoming more than me and our friend who lived with us could handle.
I bought some of the 98% L Dopa and within 3 weeks of starting it Michael could go outside and walk. All pain left and all neurological symptoms improved. By 6 weeks he was 100% independent and he remained 100% independent until his death in July 2018 from a flu that progressed quickly into double pneumonia. His body had desperately needed L Dopa and this high potency mucuna gave it to him. He still had some tremor and low energy but everything was better. Even skin problems cleared up.
Eventually I found a source in the US that sells 99% extract and actually charges less than anyone else. Michael started with a dose of 300 mg just to see if he could tolerate it. He was always very sensitive. The effects initially lasted 3-4 hrs. This was January 2017.
Slowly we raised the dose to 700 mg 4-5x/day and eventually 850 mg 5x/day. Over time he did require more mucuna as well as more often – every 2-3 hours. He and got up to 1200 mg 5-6x/day this past year. Most people using mucuna don’t get the horrible side effect of dyskinesias (uncontrollable movements) that many people get from the drugs. At about 1200 mg mucuna, Michael did have some dyskinesia and he cut back to 1100 mg which reduced them. I know a woman that manages with 650 mg 4x/day for many years and a woman who uses a large dose of 5000 mg 3x/day for many years. Neither experience dyskinesias.
Everyone is different in terms of dose. You just start low and experiment. I’ve also wondered about it being even more beneficial to add in some non-L-Dopa extract version of mucuna since the entire plant has many desirable healing properties. Places like Banyan Botanicals carry good quality organic whole plant mucuna if you want to try that along with the 98-99% L Dopa extract of Mucuna.
As a reference point – at Michael’s high dose of 1100-1200 mg 6x/day, a kg that costs $185 would last 2-3 months. In recent months Michael began experimenting with adding 5HTP and L-Tyrosine to better balance out his neurotransmitters and possibly increase the benefit of the mucuna.
He learned about these additions from John Grey’s work on improving brain health. Michael had yet to notice any difference but it really could have been too soon to judge plus he didn’t take these extra amino acids consistently.
Michael was also experimenting with taking mannitol to extend the effect of the mucuna. He took 1 beano-type capsule along with it to prevent gas and bloating which can happen with mannitol. It was a little soon to tell but Michael felt it was helping and he didn’t get bloating.
Many people who take Parkinson’s medications have to contend with nausea from the drug. It’s the L Dopa/ levodopa causing nausea. Michael did get nausea when he started on mucuna, but eventually we discovered that taking about 1000-2000mg of straight Vitamin C from ascorbic acid at the same time as the mucuna worked perfectly and he never had nausea again.
This is also working to prevent nausea for some friends who are also taking mucuna. It can’t be buffered C- it needs to be ascorbic acid, which thankfully is very inexpensive. (You can get ascorbic acid at a great price at the same place that sells the mucuna).
Candied ginger can also work for nausea but then you’re also getting a lot of sugar so we were really happy to discover the Vit C worked. Mucuna extract is a tasteless white to off-white powder. I mixed it along with the Vit C into some room temp herbal tea sweetened with honey (preferably raw honey that has more healing properties). Honey always helped Michael swallow.
Here is the US based company I bought mucuna from at a good price. We’ve also referred a number of people to this source and the mucuna is helping them, too. (I’m not an affiliate and I get no financial benefit if you buy here).
You’ll also need a good mg scale so you can be exact in your dose. Here’s a link to a scale that has worked well for me.
Scale: there are similar ones on Amazon that have even better reviews, but this one has always worked for me and has not needed recalibration even after 18 months of frequent use. https://amzn.to/2BbNr0l
One more thing to mention that may help your readers.There is a Chinese Herbal Formula that has helped many people with tremors. A friend of Michael’s has used it for many months with great benefit. Michael had barely started it when he died so I can’t comment on his experience.
This year has been a life changer for many persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I am hearing many encouraging reports from people who have found therapies that reverse Parkinson’s and are getting relief from their symptoms. This is a truly exciting development from previous years.
I have described and summarized each of the ways that have been helping in a 98 page book titled: 2018 Update to Road to Recovery from Parkinson’s Disease. The 2018 Update covers all the new, promising options for recovery that I have documented over the previous year. Many promising possibilities (some recently discovered or invented) are helping more and more people reverse their Parkinson’s symptoms. The 2018 Update covers the following:
•High Dose Thiamine
•Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)
•Amino Acid Therapy
