Something has been puzzling me. In the research that I’ve conducted, medical literature continually points to heavy metal toxicity and inflammation as two of the possible causes of Parkinson’s. If this is the case [and I tend to agree], then why does the medical profession choose medications as its primary form of treatment. It doesn’t seem to make any sense.
If heavy metal toxicity is part of the cause, then heavy metal detoxification must be part of the solution. Similarly, if Parkinson’s is an inflammatory condition, as it is often described, then an anti-inflammatory diet [not anti-inflammatory medication] must also be part of the solution. Neither one of these options was suggested to me, nor have I seen it on any mainstream PD websites.
It’s baffling indeed!
I have connected with a lot of people through this blog, many who are using medications and who are struggling greatly. They are taking one medication [such as Sinimet] to quell the symptoms and another medication to quell the side effects of the first one. To me, this seems like insanity and the cause of needless suffering.
I must admit that a few months ago medications were starting to look like a necessary option for me. But now that I understand the role of fear and stress in the development of PD [along with heavy metal toxicity, inflammation and physical trauma], I strongly believe that it is possible to manage and recover through natural therapies. If you want more reassurance, read Road to Recovery from Parkinson’s Disease by Robert Rodgers and Stop Parkin’ and Start Livin’ by John Coleman.
It seems that the medical community is so enamored with medications and surgery that they have the blinders on when it comes to treating chronic illnesses. It doesn’t need to be this way. If the allopathic and naturopathic folks would just get together, we could end a lot of needless suffering and actually start healing people rather than just treating their symptoms with toxic medications.
Have an awesomely natural day!
