Parkinson’s disease

  1. Parkinson’s disease may be a bacterial infection

    Is this secret infection CAUSING Parkinson’s?

    It’s a STUNNING confession from the mainstream.

    They’ve just admitted that EVERYTHING they’ve told you about Parkinson’s disease is wrong.

    More importantly, they’ve just admitted that I’ve been right all along!

    This disease ISN’T always caused by irreversible damage to nerves and neurotransmitters in the brain, as they’ve insisted for years.

    There’s another trigger… one that can make the disease worse if you have it and, in some cases, can actually cause it.

    More importantly, this trigger can be TREATED and DEFEATED, often with NO MEDICATION AT ALL!

    The latest research fingers a new culprit for Parkinson’s disease (at least as far as the mainstream is concerned). It finds that H. pylori bacteria – the same bug responsible for ulcers – can play a major role in the development and advance of this frightening condition.

    Parkinson’s patients are up to THREE TIMES more likely to be infected with H. pylori, which in turn leads to WORSE control over the disease and WORSE symptoms, including the decline in motor function that is a hallmark of the condition.

    Coincidence?

    Not when you see the next part of the study.

    You see, something else happened – something that’s practically a miracle.

    When the germ was wiped out, the patients improved… often DRAMATICALLY!

    First, wiping out the infection led to better control over the disease, including improvements in motor function.

    And second, folks treated for H. pylori were better able to handle, absorb and use levodopa, the main medication given to most Parkinson’s patients.

    Since it’s a dangerous drug with serious side effects, that could mean lower doses to minimize the risks that come from taking it.

    The research team behind the new study believes the bacteria could be churning out toxins that damage the brain while triggering a “massive inflammatory response” that can worsen nerve and neurotransmitter problems.

    But treat the germ, and you can turn it around.

    The mainstream treats H. pylori with antibiotics, but therapeutic doses of natural compounds in garlic, cranberry and the sulforaphane (found in cruciferous vegetables) can often wipe out the bacteria.

    If you do need the antibiotics, natural probiotics can enhance the germ-killing powers of the drug and reduce side effects.

    Naturally, this doesn’t mean H. pylori is responsible for all cases of Parkinson’s disease.

    One reason this condition is so tough to treat is that there are a number of potential causes, including everything from undiagnosed infection (as the new study shows) to metals exposure.

    Your best bet is work closely with a holistic medical doctor who can test you for all the possible causes and help to treat them naturally.

    If you’re in the San Diego area, I can run those tests here at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine. Not in Southern California? I’m also available by phone.

  2. Parkinson’s disease linked to calcium

    Could THIS be what finally CURES Parkinson's disease?

    There's new hope today in the battle against one of the most frightening diseases of aging.

    So far, the mainstream has been completely powerless against Parkinson's disease.

    It can't stop it. It can barely even slow it down.

    It can't even recognize the condition early enough to give people the help they need when it matters most.

    But new research changes all that.

    It reveals what could be the HIDDEN damage that forms in the brain YEARS before the Parkinson's itself sinks it.

    And that means that there could also be a way to catch the disease in time, stopping it before it even starts.

    The key is in calcium.

    It's an essential mineral, of course, needed for bone and more.

    But calcium on its own can also "go rogue." It can stick around the arteries, causing calcification and hardening.

    Now, the new study finds that it can do something similar in the brain, and that "brain calcification" could be what ultimately leads to Parkinson's disease, or at least in some cases.

    The study finds that when calcium hits nerve endings in the brain, it can kick off a series of events that ultimately kills off brain cells.

    That leads to a short-circuit in the process that neurons rely on to signal each other -- and that, in turn, can cause the telltale symptoms of Parkinson's, such as the tremors and shakes.

    This was a lab study, but we've already seen links between calcification and Parkinson's in human research. The new study adds to this growing evidence, showing the link AND exactly how and why it happens.

    The researchers are already talking about using the drugs that block calcium from the heart to see if they can do the same for the brain.

    I've got a much easier plan.

    There are two already-proven steps that you can take right now to help eliminate excess calcium.

    The first is easy: Make sure that you have the right levels of magnesium and vitamins D and K, as all of them play a role in directing calcium to where it needs to go. That keeps it from building up where it shouldn't -- your arteries and your brain.

    The second step takes a little more work. Natural chelation therapy can help eliminate excess calcium from your body, including the deposits in the arteries. Time will tell if it can also break up deposits in the brain, but we already know that patients with Parkinson's often see remarkable improvements after this detoxifying treatment.

    Seek the advice and care of an experienced holistic medical doctor.
