The parkinson’s epidemic, TCE, Paraquat

eccording to the sources listed below, Parkinson’s desease was a rare desease 200 years ago, and now is a very commom desease.

The number of PD cases dubbled in the last 20 years

Young onset PD is a recent phanomena

so the environmental changes, קץעץ the industrialisation, may play a role

TCE – has many uses, produced in large amounts, cause PD, may be a leading cause of the rise in PD cases

Paraquat – weed killer, heavly used, cause PD

The Stanford/Dr Tass, Vibration glove treatment for PD

Any thoughts on the Vibration Gloves?
by u/cicla in Parkinsons

few notes

according to the video, the glove treatment is very affective, some results show after 1 day, at least for some people the effect of symptom reduction is amazing, this suggest that the cause of symptoms was not massive dopaminergic cell death but instead, dysregulation of dopaminergic cells that disrupted dopamine production

the developer of the treatment looks at the problem (PD..dopaminergic cells not releasing dopamine) from a systems perspective, and develop a way to reset existing dysregulation (or more specifically disrupt synchronization – a process in which one cell type sync other cell types, to behave like it )

it’s a way to reboot/restart to prevent accumulation of processing errors. actually it’s more targeted then a general restart. Maybe Electroconvulsive therapy, more suitable “reset” option ..some evidence >>

for example, you can solve most Windows errors simply by rebooting it. If you had to dive into some window issue (e.g. computer hanging, slow, printer messed, weird error message, apps installed don’t work..) well, not a realistic goal

so, when looking at parkinson’s from a system approach perspective, a good start would be to find a way to reboot you system

this will not solve all issues, e.g. if you got PD from exposure to a toxin rebooting your system will not to much

same with windows, if you got a computer virus and it’s causing issue. a reboot might not be sufficient

but in case a particular sequence of events is not handled well by the system and cause an error situation with lasting effect.. reboot might help as long as you don’t repeat that sequence

in my case, many years ago, I lost my sense of smell, at the time, I theorized that my intuition took over some of the neurons dedicated to the processing of smell, intuition was one of my mostly used “modules” ( see Meir Briges type classifier, this personality type classification is based on identifying the main modules used’ e.g thinking/sensing/feeling/intuiting)

Exercise does not affect Levodopa response

We studied 10 regular exercising men with Parkinson’s disease on levodopa (LD) under two conditions–no exercise and vigorous exercise started 1 hour after LD ingestion. We compared LD levels and motor scores on the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). There was a high degree of agreeme …

Repurposing anti-diabetic drugs for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease

The most pressing need in Parkinson’s disease (PD) clinical practice is to identify agents that might slow down, stop or reverse the neurodegenerative process of Parkinson’s disease and therefore avoid the onset of the most disabling, dopa-refractory symptoms of the disease. These include dementia, …

10 Health Benefits of Low-Carb and Ketogenic Diets

Many studies show that low-carb and ketogenic diets can lead to dramatic weight loss and improve most major risk factors for heart disease and diabetes. Also, repeatedly shown (but not always) to help with or reverse PD and other neurologicsal conditions

Parkinson’s disease and basal ganglia calcifications: prevalence and clinico-radiological correlations – PubMed

We reviewed computerized tomograms (CT) for basal ganglia and dentate nucleus calcifications in 79 patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), 54 patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and 109 controls aged 50 or more. When it was determined, no patient had disturbances in calcium metabolism. We found: …
