Go to https://www.patreon.com/medicosis L-Dopa is a critical drug in the treatment of Parkinson's because it is converted into dopamine in the CNS (Remember that the problem in Parkinson's is low levels of dopamine in the substantia nigra), but there are 3 challenges facing the fate of this drug... Watch to know... Side effects of dopa include: On-Off phenomenon, psychological disturbance, euphoria, hallucinations, insomnia, anxiety, abnormal sexual activity. If L-dopa leads to psychosis, we do NOT stop the drug (the patient needs it), instead, we give antipsychotics to treat the side effects. Side effects of Selegiline (MAO-B inhibitor) include amphetamine-like symptoms. Tolcapone can lead to liver toxicity, you better monitor the liver function tests (LFTs) periodically.

The field of epigenetics (which was a direct result of the work carried out at the human genome project) has shown us that damaged genes can be fixed and there is emerging scientific evidence as well as new and overlooked research coming out from all over the world that shows Parkinson’s can be effectively treated and fully reversed. The successful application of an effective Parkinson’s protocol incorporates empirical science about the root cause of disease with a logical understanding of how Parkinson’s affects the body. In other words, getting to the root cause of the problem as opposed to treating the symptoms. In today’s video Nature Crazy goes over its Top 5 science based protocols for reversing Parkinson’s naturally. 1. Consider supplementing with Lithium Orotate daily. Numerous in vitro and in vivo studies have shown lithium treatment to work by modulating several homeostatic mechanisms involved in neurotrophic response, autophagy, stress, mitochondrial function, and inflammation. Additionally, it inhibits glycogen synthase kinase-3 beta (GSK-3β) and inositol monophosphatase. This simply means that Lithium Orotate can help halt the progression of certain neurodegenerative diseases such as parkinsons by cleaning up mis-formed proteins that aren’t supposed to be in the brain. This process is known as autophagy. Again we recommend 10 mg of Lithium Orotate a day from a high quality brand. 2. Consider supplementing with Krill oil or some other good source of Omega-3 fatty acids because a study carried out by Université Laval found Omega-3 fatty acids protect your brain against Parkinson’s disease. The research findings showed that omega-3 fats in your diet may protect your brain cells. It works by preventing the misfolding of a protein resulting from a gene mutation in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's. A deduction to be gained from this finding is that a brain containing a lack of Omega 3 fatty acids and an excessive amount of omega 6 fatty acids may contribute to creating an environment that encourages the development of Parkinson’s disease. We recommend taking Krill Oil twice a day which is an excellent choice for getting the right amount of Omega-3 in the diet. 3. Consider supplementing with Iodine since iodine is crucial for working nerves, normal dopamine production, and the removal of heavy metals from the brain. Iodine ought to be particularly concentrated in the substantia nigra, however, in Parkinson’s patients it is not. Correcting this and bringing iodine levels back up to where they should be many times will provide great improvement to those suffering from Parkinson’s. Also, it’s important since long-term iodine deficiency seems to be linked to irregularities in the dopaminergic system that include a greater amount of dopamine receptors. It is argued that this raises susceptivity to dopamine oxidation which can cause a shortage of the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and catalase. We recommend a quality brand daily. 4. Consider supplementing with coenzyme q10. While CoQ10 has been successfully tested in clinical trials for other neurological disorders such as Huntington's Disease, it has gained more traction in regards to Parkinson’s as researchers from Japan's Juntendo University School of Medicine have discovered that one particular form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) can significantly reduce the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Because evidence suggests that mitochondrial dysfunction and oxygen free radicals play a role in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s it makes sense that the dual function of coenzyme Q10 as a potent antioxidant and as a component of the mitochondrial electron transport chain would be helpful in slowing the progression of Parkinson’s disease. We recommend a quality brand daily. 5. Supplementing with a heavy metal detoxifier like Humifulvate on an ongoing regular basis will be very helpful in your recovery because mercury and other heavy metals actually play a large part in a bountiful amount of neurodegenerative diseases and Parkinson’s is no exception. A new study from India has linked significantly increased blood levels of heavy metals with Parkinson’s disease so a regular detox routine to keep heavy metals low in our bodies is an excellent way to stop and reverse these disorders and diseases. We recommend Immune Boost 77 which is a great way to detoxify the body.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4621308/  https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2007-11/ul-ofa112607.php  http://orthomolecular.org/library/jom/1999/pdf/1999-v14n03-p128.pdf  http://www.prd-journal.com/article/S1353-8020(15)00240-0/abstract  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=PMID%3A+24980015

The only way to deal with them is to prevent yourself from being afflicted with the disease. ✹One of them is Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease affects the nervous system, which ruins movement for the sufferer that gets worse over time. ✹Unfortunately, there is still no cure for this condition, but there are medications that are prescribed to help reduce Parkinson’s symptoms. ✹There are also proposed home remedies that could either prevent the disease from developing or at fight it during its onset. ✹One example of home remedy is known as Fava Beans. Fava Beans are similar to chickpeas and lentils. They contain tons of fiber and are a lean protein choice particularly for vegans. ✹Fava also contains several nutrients including iron that helps boost energy, magnesium, vitamin K, vitamin B6, copper and zinc. ►►Parkinson’s Disease Healing with Fava Beans https://youtu.be/uUedn0uSvNY →Fava beans also have levodopa the same chemical found in medicines, that are used for treating Parkinson’s disease. →In fact, the whole plant where the beans come from contains levodopa and these include the stems, pods, young beans and leaves. →Immature or young beans in the pod are the richest in levodopa. While the dried or mature beans contain the least amount. Three ounces of fresh beans can give about 50 up to 100 mg of levodopa. →One study, which was published in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, suggested that dissolving the beans (both dried and fresh with the outer shell) in water and alcohol can increase levodopa and carbidopa in the blood of the patient. This leads to improving motor performance in people with Parkinson’s disease without suffering from side effects. #SUBSCRIBE & Live a Healthy Life→https://goo.gl/W9Ip0z #Share this video with your friends & family. ♥♥ Thanks For Watching ♥♥ ★★ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------★★
