Thank you so much to Jimmy, who reads the blogs I post, for providing a link to an important article on the benefits of nutraceuticals in treating PD. It was published in the September 2016 edition of NeuroMolecular Medicine and contains a lot of medical terminology, but it’s well worth the read.
Nutraceuticals refers to compounds that are derived from natural sources, and these foods or derivatives have been clinically substantiated with reasonable scientific evidence to support their beneficial role in the prevention and/or treatment of a particular disease.
The article has inspired me to drink more green tea, eat more mushrooms and give CoQ10 another try!
In addition to the items listed in the article, I would add fermented foods [including sauerkraut] for their gut healing properties, coconut oil for its brain healing properties, and garlic, for its immune system strengthening properties. I also recommend an adrenal strengthening supplement.
Finally, a reminder to make processed foods elimination and fear/stress elimination an important part of your recovery protocol.
Wishing you many amazing blessings!
