Parkinson’s and Alzheimers: What we are doing that’s making a difference

Most of us know someone who has fallen ill with either Alzheimers or Parkinson’s and we hear the same answer “It can’t be cured.” Or can it?!  

It’s not just our grandparents anymore who are ending up with diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s… We are experiencing a national mental health epidemic that is affecting thousands of people in their 40s and 50s.  

In fact, deaths due to chronic unresolved mental health issues have skyrocketed and are at all-time highs, not just in the US but around the world.  

The current model of mental health is the only medical specialty that derives a diagnosis based on a cluster of clinical symptoms rather than objective laboratory measures. 

As far back as 2002, policy leaders like Dr. Thomas R Insel, former director of the National Institute of Mental Health, were pushing for an evidence-based more scientific model… and right now, there are doctors and scientists from around the world who are working together to continue to collect evidence-based data that showing incredibly positive outcomes for those around the globe who are looking outside the box for this type of approach. They are collecting case studies of individuals who are showing actual reversal of their symptoms and the approach they are using has a high reproducibility rate. 

Our model of using a data-driven approach has resulted in amazing outcomes with our clients because we are focused on finding the root causes of brain degeneration instead of just addressing symptoms. Shifting to this more complex thinking not only makes sense, but it is working for thousands of people lucky enough to find practitioners who are using this approach for addressing diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. 

Scientists and doctors have found many contributing root causes of brain degeneration. These culprits that so many are unknowingly exposed to on a daily basis can cause not only the brain chemistry to shift out of balance but the entire body… variables that include underlying infections, foods or chemicals and preservatives in the foods, environmental toxins like glyphosate, and even lifestyle choices. And with advanced testing patients can get answers and start addressing the real issues and as a result, they are reversing their disease symptoms. 

Examples of advanced objective testing that looks not only at brain function and brain chemistry include brain chemistry testing which can be used to detect changes in brain chemistry levels, and with food-induced neurological disorders advanced functional testing can even identify the offending foods that could be causing severe neurological disorders.  Organic acids, heavy metals testing, environmental toxin testing, and genetic testing are also used to find imbalances and root causes of biochemical imbalance and degeneration in the brain.  

Here are some of the top causes of brain chemistry imbalances and neurodegenerative disease that are being identified through advanced functional testing:

  1. High stress causes major physiological changes to the body that can alter metabolism, hormone balance, thyroid hormones, and even brain chemistry. Chronic long-term high stress ultimately can cause a multitude of imbalances leading to chronic disease including neurodegenerative disease and other brain chemistry imbalances.                                                                                                                                                    
  2. The Standard American Diet which consists of foods that cause neural inflammation like gluten which can cause atrophy of the cerebellum region of the brain 4.                                                                                                                                                                                 
  3. Dairy has been shown to be a large factor involved in patients with Schizophrenia and other brain chemistry imbalances5. In fact, there are many foods that in certain individuals, can induce complete psychosis6.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
  4. Underlying infections like clostridia7 can markedly alter behavior in autism and other neuropsychiatric diseases by causing alterations in dopamine and norepinephrine levels in the brain because of a neurotoxin that is released by the infection that blocks the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine — resulting in too high levels of dopamine and too low levels of norepinephrine. Excessively high levels of Dopamine lead to damage to the neurons triggering the fight or flight response (panic attacks and anxiety), symptoms of Parkinson’s, schizophrenia, anorexia nervosa, Alzheimer’s, and a host of other symptoms associated with neurodegenerative diseases. Clostridia isn’t the only chronic infection that can cause alterations in brain chemistry. Imbalances in the gut flora, parasites, mold, and other pathogens are also known to cause unfavorable changes in brain chemistry.                                                                                                        
  5. Exposure to environmental toxins has also been linked to a host of neurological degenerative diseases as well as cancers. Environmental toxins can come from your drinking water, prescription medications, household and beauty products, nonorganic foods, and even the air you breathe (contaminated poor air quality in homes is common and recognized by the EPA). Exposure to Glyphosate, which can come from your foods, water sources, or air for example, has been linked to autism, Alzheimer’s, anxiety and depression, fatigue, gluten sensitivity, and Parkinson’s disease1-2.  A 54-year-old man who accidentally sprayed himself with glyphosate developed skin lesions six hours after exposure and one month later he developed Parkinsonian Syndrome3. There are many cases like this showing the neurological effects of environmental toxins like glyphosate.  There are also many case studies showing the reversal of neurological disease symptoms once the underlying culprits are confirmed and eliminated from the body.
