How I Reversed My Parkinson's Disease Symptoms
Parkinson’s disease is a neurological condition afflicting about 1 percent of men and women over the age of seventy years old. Individuals with Parkinson’s disease have tremor of the hands, rigidity, poor balance, and mild intellectual deterioration. The tremor is most apparent at rest and is less severe with movement. Shaking or tremor is an early symptom of Parkinson's disease. Progression leads to trembling in arms, legs, jaw, and rigidity or stiffness of the limbs.
Research has shown that Parkinson's disease occurs when a small region in the brain, called the substantia nigra, begins to deteriorate. The neurons of the substantia nigra use the brain chemical dopamine. Tremors begin to happen and movement slows when you have inhibited dopamine function. Dopamine is broken down in the brain by an enzyme called monoamine oxidase (MAO). When the activity of MAO is inhibited, dopamine stays around longer and this benefits those with Parkinson’s disease.
L-dopa (L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine) is most commonly used to treat Parkinson’s disease. However there can be a number of negative side effects and problems associated with the administration of l-dopa (l-3, 4-dihydroxyphenylalanine) during treatment of Parkinson’s disease. This is thought to be because the administration of l-dopa may deplete the body of l-tyrosine, l-tryptophan, 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), serotonin, and sulfur amino acids. The properly balanced administration of l-dopa in conjunction with 5-HTP, l-tyrosine, l-cysteine and other supportive nutritional supplements can alleviate many of the negative side effects.
A study printed in the International Journal of Internal Medicine was done with 254 Parkinson’s patients who were newly diagnosed, with no previous treatment, and those who were diagnosed more than 20 years before and had tried many other medical treatment options. It showed that these supplements were helpful in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease.
Since filming this video I have upgraded my suggestions for optimal brain function based on more current research and user feedback.
If you are already taking medicine for this condition, it is safe to take the following supplements. As you feel better, then with your doctor's supervision, you can begin to wean yourself off your medications. Rather than ask permission, if you are feeling better, let your doctor know you are feeling better and that you want to gradually go off the medication. If you ask permission, a doctor must prescribe drugs but you can choose to go off and ask them for their supervision which can be helpful.
From my personal experience and in helping hundreds of people at my wellness retreats in Northern California, the following suggestions have helped all brain disorders.
For optimal brain health take the following suggestions twice a day:
(1) Mars Venus Super Food Shake
(2) Super Minerals
(2) Lithium Orotate
(1) Vectomega (Omega-3)
For the best super food shake add the following:
2 ounces of Bravo Probiotic Yogurt
1 teaspoon of hemp oil
1 tablespoon of MCT oil
1 extra scoop of IsaPro (undenatured whey protein
1 Brazil nut
Blend this together longer than usual; several times in a two minutes period. For a more refreshing taste you can blend with ice. With each mouthful swish the liquid around in the mouth for 30 seconds to a minute. Don't worry if you can't handle dairy. The Bravo yogurt will help heal the gut within days. If you are very dairy sensitive, then start out with a few days simply taking the Bravo Probiotic Yogurt and after a week your body will easily handle the undenatured dairy in the suggested super food shake formula.
For many people this simple protocol suggested above is not enough and the following healing program is needed for at least three months.
These ten added supplements should be taken twice a day before meals or super food shake.
Potential vitamins 1 chewable tablets
L-Tyrosine (1000 mg) 1 capsule
5-htp , (50 mg) 1 capsule
Grape seed extract 1 capsule
N-A-C (500mg) 4 capsules
L-Taurine (1000mg) 1 capsule
L-Lysine (500mg) 1 capsule
A-L-A (Alpha-Lipoic Acid) (200 mg) 1 capsule
Product B 2 capsules
APMC 500 2 capsules (Aloe Vera supplement with Mannose)
A drink of water with the following supplements 2 times a day on an empty stomach. First in the morning and in the afternoon before taking the super food shake.
Liposomal vitamin C 1 teaspoon
Liposomal Glutathione 1 teaspoon
Liposomal Curcumin 1 teaspoon
Liposomal B12 and Folate I dropper
1 scoop of Collogen peptides (with glutamine and taurine)
1 scoop of Super Cleanse
You should feel the benefits increasing within your first month.

John; I listened with great interest to your story about dealing with your Parkinson's symptoms. I am a 60 year old male diagnosed 6 months ago, but as of yet, taking no medication. I am so freaked out by the side effects of l-dopa, I have been searching for options to avoid or delay its use. Since many of the recommendations, and those in the case study linked to in your post, relate to supplements to control or minimize the side effects, would you have a suggestion of beginning supplements for someone not taking l-dopa? Thanks for your thoughts....

Watched your video on reversing your Parkinson symptoms and was very curious to know more. My Parkinson’s symptoms began in June 2006. I began a regimen of Carbidopa/Levodopa 25/100 mg in August 2012. My dosage is currently 5 tablets daily. My neurologist just added Requip to the protocol. Haven't started taking it yet. Since I have been taking Carbidopa/Levodopa for two years will I be able to wean myself off so that I can start taking Mucuna and the amino acids you are suggesting on your website? How do I do this? I am determined to get off the drugs and reverse my symptoms using alternative methods. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for posting this information. ...

I enjoyed your video on parkinsons john, but I don't know where to start with your natural supplements.I read your list that you have recommended but I am not sure. So here is my situation. I am a 56 year old male that has been diagnosed with "A" typical parkinsons about 3 years ago. I have been on the lowest dose of levocarb for that period. My prescription says levodop/carbidopa 250/25 mg. It is good that it has not progressed yet, so I was wondering what supplements would you suggest I start with . I hope to hear from you soon and by the way I also listened to you on coast to coast radio program one night and thought you very informative Thanx...
