    Parkinsons Disease is not just a dopamine deficieny - mainstream admits

    This study goes along the lines of what haidut has been posting the last years . Namely that parkinsons disease (PD) is not just caused by a dopamin deficiency, but a serotonin excess . I think this is what the study is pointing to , in a very twisted indirect way ... I guess they dont want to...

    An Open-Label Pilot Study With High-Dose Thiamine in Parkinson's Disease

Since the tremor sometimes recurs only when I simultaneously feel symptoms of low dopamine ... this is an exact science. Until then I had experienced tremors in...

    The Protein In Fish, Not Omega-3, May Be Protective Against Brain Disease

    Over the last 2 decades thousands of studies were published on the purported benefits of omega-3 fats commonly found in cold water fish. However, every large human trial with omega-3 either failed to find benefit or even found increased risk of harm. Despite that fact, there is very strong...

    Statins May Exert Beneficial Effects Through A Pathway Other Than It's Cholesterol Lowering Action

    Was surprised when saw a study showing statins have positive effects on bones, did a bit of searching and it turned out that it has some positive action,generally, through inhibiting rho kinase, which also is protective against heart disease. Im not promoting statin use at all(for obvious...

    Lanosterol - Liquid Lanosterol For Lab/R&D

    I guess most people on the forum who have heard of lanosterol know it in the context of treating cataracts. Lanosterol - Wikipedia There is a company out there who used to sell lanosterol as eye drops and it is insanely expensive - $100 for a meager 10mg lanosterol. Anyways, lanosterol is...

    White-collar Jobs Linked To ALS And Parkinson

    Ever since ALS and Parkinson were formally introduced into the medical vocabulary, the medical industry has been trying to explain their increasing incidence with a variety of bizarre genetic stories. The genetic explanation started to collapse in the late 90s when it became evident that 90% of...

    Caffeine Protects Against Dementia (AD), ALS, Parkinson, And Huntington Disease

    The link between caffeine intake and lower risk of neurodegenerative conditions has been established before but the mechanism of action was unknown. This study discovered one possible mechanism and also confirmed the associative findings in vivo using a mouse model. The HED was 150mg - 300mg...

    5α-Dihydroprogesterone (5α-DHP) - The Primary Progestogen Neurosteroid

    It has been shown that progesterone rapidly metabolizes into more saturated metabolites such as 5α-Dihydroprogesterone (5α-DHP) and tetrahydroprogesterone (also known as allopregnanolone or Allo). The enzyme 5-AR is the one responsible for the saturation, just as it is responsible for the...

    Vitamin D3 Extends Lifespan By Preventing Toxic Protein Buildup

    Over the last 6-9 months I noticed that often people who communicate with Peat over email get a recommendation to supplement with vitamin D. When asked why, Peat said that he knows quite a few people who recovered from "very serious symptoms" by using vitamin D. Well, this new study shows that...

    RoundUp (glyphosate) Linked To Alzheimers, Parkinson And ALS

    I posted about a similar study a few months ago, but this time the scientists are directly making the claim that RoundUp is causally involved with these conditions. The mechanism of action is again glycine antagonism / deletion by glyphosate. Monsanto's Roundup Weedkiller Linked to Alzheimer's...

    Parkinson's Disease

    Hi guys. When my mother was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease (PD) I began doing a lot of research. I knew from the offset that the traditional mainstream view of the pathology of PD would most likely be wrong or have major holes in it. As I did my research this became abundantly clear. There...

    Supplements For Parkinson Disease

    Hi all, My uncle is diagnosed with Parkinson, which is very bad news of course. It is good to finally understand what is going on, but the traditional outlook for Parkinson is not that good. I think that he is not someone that will change his diet too radically (I can try of course), so that...
