Parkinson’s disease: Powerful preventative & treatment measures
As we say in Texas, Dr. Steenblock has “cored the apple” with respect to Parkinson’s disease:
“Parkinson’s patients have immune and detoxification problems compared to healthy people of the same age. They have exaggerated inflammatory responses to bacterial and fungal infections which may be due to the amounts of heavy metals like copper, iron, mercury and lead in their brain, intestinal tract and the rest of their body. These metals accumulate in these people for a variety of reasons some of which are from environmental exposures including excessive consumption of heavy-metals sequestering fish and in some genetic issues and problems that together facilitate increased absorption of these heavy metals as well as intestinal bacteria and their cell wall components. Endotoxins and Bacteria derived peptide (fMLP) have been found to be toxic to dopamine neurons and cause selective dopamine neuron loss at very low levels- the type of levels that can be produced from straining to pass stool, poor dental care and from consuming too many salted nuts and seeds, refined sugars, acid foods, alcohol and other intestinal tract damaging substances that allow these bacterial and fungal poisons to migrate through the intestinal wall into the blood stream. From the blood, these endotoxins and bacteria derived peptides are picked up from the blood by the astroglia that line the brain’s blood vessels and whose function (in part) includes protecting delicate neurons from these toxins. These poisons stimulate the blood-brain-barrier astroglia to make free radicals that cause damage to the nearby dopamine producing cells (and this by using up the free radical-scavenging glutathione normally present within astroglia that is needed to detoxify chemical poisons generated by internal metabolic processes or which enter the body from outside sources.)”
OK, so now you have insight into part of the disease process that gives rise to and fuels Parkinson’s disease. Where can you find out about other players? And what can you do to counter these “monkey wrenches in the cogs” or, where Parkinson’s disease already exists, remediate or even reverse it? One good place to start is this article: http://www.stemcellmd.org/?page_id=389 In it you will read about what powerful therapeutic measures for PD including the use of your own stem cell-rich bone marrow. You can learn more by calling Dr. Steenblock’s Clinic at 1-800-300-1063 and setting up a consultation!
