Top 5 Natural Remedies to Prevent and Treat Parkinson’s Disease

While we tend to think of brain disease solely as the result of genetics, the reality is quite different. Of course, genetics play a role, but a growing body of research shows that dietary and lifestyle factors can make a huge difference in whether or not weíll experience a brain disease like Parkinsonís, or how quickly the condition may deteriorate if we are diagnosed with the serious condition.

Thatís because a healthy brain depends on many factors, including a healthy gut, brain-protective compounds, sufficient energy in brain cells and keeping brain inflammation to a minimum. Here are some of my top picks among natural remedies to help prevent or treat Parkinsonís disease. Of course you should speak to your physician before using them.

Coffee or Tea

That daily caffeine habit may not be such a bad thing if youíre trying to prevent Parkinsonís disease. Black, green and white tea contain potent brain-protecting compounds known as catechins. According to research published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, drinking at least 2 cups of tea daily can reduce your risk of Parkinsonís disease. Donít fret if youíre more of a coffee drinker than a tea totaler; research in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) shows that coffee drinking may have the same brain-protective effect.

Coenzyme Q10

CoQ10 has been shown to slow the progression of brain diseases like Parkinsonís. In one study published in the medical journal Archives of Neurology, researchers found that supplementation with this naturally-occurring nutrient reduced decline linked to the disease by 44 percent when started early.

While the study was small, a basic understanding in CoQ10ís ability to boost brain cell energy suggests that larger studies will have a similar result. In the study, people supplemented with either 300 mg, 600 mg or 1200 mg. Those who took the highest dose had the greatest results. While CoQ10 is considered quite safe, 1200 milligrams is a high dose and is best used with the guidance of someone well-versed in nutritional therapy. A similar study in the journal Parkinsonism and Related Disorders also reported benefits of CoQ10 supplementation for those with the disease.

Gastrodin

A compound extracted from Chinese orchids, known as gastrodin, has demonstrated effectiveness in multiple studies published in the journals Life Sciences, Frontiers in Pharmacology†and Molecular Medicine Reports†against Parkinsonís disease. The Chinese orchid, Gastrodia elata is a traditional remedy used in Chinese Medicine. The extract is now available in capsule form in some health food stores or online. A typical dose is 300 mg twice daily. Follow package instructions.

Nicotinamide Riboside

A new study published in the medical journal Cell Reports.found that a form of vitamin B3 known as nicotinamide riboside demonstrated ability to preserve brain cells. The nutrient appears to work by improving the function of the energy centers within brain and nervous system cells. A typical dose is between 2 and 17 grams daily, although more may be needed for those already experiencing Parkinson’s disease.

Probiotics

Because the gut-brain link is strong, itís no surprise that a recent study discovered that supplementing with probiotics could be helpful for people with Parkinsonís disease. Published in the medical journal Clinical Nutrition, researchers found that regular supplementation with probiotics helped reduce harmful markers for the disease while enhancing beneficial compounds in the body, as well as improving peoplesí scores on a Parkinsonís disease rating scale. While additional research will be necessary to determine the best strains to take, because probiotic supplementation has so many benefits, you may wish to supplement with a broad-spectrum supplement while awaiting the outcomes of further studies.

I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease nearly 4 years ago, at age 51. I had a stooped posture, tremors, muscle stiffness, sleeplessness, and slow movement. I was placed on Sinemet for 7 months and then Sifrol and rotigotine were introduced which replaced the Sinemet but I had to stop due to side effects. I was in denial for a while as there is no history of PD in my family. I also used amantadine, and physical therapy to strengthen muscles all failed. I decided to adopt a more natural approach and started on Parkinson's Herbal formula from Organic Herbal Clinic, the Parkinson's natural formula immensely helped my condition, i had a total recovery from PD with this natural herbal formula treatment.

After my Parkinsons Disease diagnosis, i was on Carbidopa and Pramipexole for two years, as the disease progressed my symptoms worsened, with my neurologist guidance i started on natural PARKINSONS DISEASE TREATMENT from Rich Herbs Foundation (ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om). The treatment worked very effectively for my Parkinson’s, most of my severe symptoms simply vanished within the first 3 months on the treatment, i feel better now than I have felt in years and i can feel my strength again. My neurologist was very open when looking at alternative medicines and procedures, this alternative parkinson disease treatment is indeed a breakthrough.

I am Rachel and I own a herbal Therapy Center. What I am about to share with you is based on actual fact and I am not a socially irresponsible person. I am a woman of character and I believed that we have only one purpose for existing and that is to help our fellow humans. And everyday millions of other people are joining me and waking up to the understanding that love is the only thing that matters in this life.

For the past 10+ years I have dealt with a lot of people who have come to me asking if herbal remedies will get rid of herpes, usually genital. I always tell people from what I have observed and heard about NATURAL REMEDY and I suggest that they try it for themselves. I have never told anyone that herbal remedy would cure their herpes.

I have never told anyone this because I have never had any physical proof to back that up... until this day.

I have always told anyone who would listen the mystical work herbal remedy do for me when ever I'm in depression, I could say that because if it did that for me, it would do the same for anyone else.

I have also always told people how herbal remedies got my doctor to successfully cured DIABETES, INFERTILITY, CANCERS, PARALYSIS, STDS & INFECTIONS.

And I tell anyone about how herbal remedy got me off the Lysinopril I was taking for my high blood pressure That also normalized within 2months. And I am thankful it did because Lysinopril has since been recalled for turning the livers of hundreds of tho
