    Toxins and Parkinsons Disease

    in Health

    Dr. Joe Hickey, MD, discusses the approach he uses in his practive to treating the symptoms of Parkinsons disease. Many standard medical tests do not detect the presence of toxins embadded in the tissues and organs of the body. Environmental toxins are presumed to be the triggers for development of Parkinson’s Disease.  Examples of toxins as the cause of PD have been well documented such as Manganese toxicity, Carbon Monoxide poisoning, Carbon DiSulfide from the Rayon Industry and MPTP.  He will add to this list, environmental exposures such as aluminum, lead, and mercury.

    Issues with Medications for Parkinson's Disease

    in Work

    Researchers who study Parkinson's disease celebrate the discovery of medications that help some people reverse their symptoms. They also worry, as do I, about an unfortunately reality of their use. More Parkinson's medications are needed over time to induce the same "on" times. Over time, medications usually stop being effective entirely. The time they are effective varies widely deoending on the individual. 


    What can be done about this problem? Some answers yuou have probably not considered which involve natural approachs to recovery will be discussed in my show today. The focus of my discussion will be directed to a marvelous little book by Julia Ross titled the Mood Cure.

    My Revolutionary Discovery about How to Heal Parkinsons

    in Health

    It has been ten years now since I launched my research program to discover the factors that cause Parkinson's disease and the therapies that provide the opportunity to reverse them. Yes, I have succeeded in identifying the many factors that cause the symptoms. And yes, I have succeeded in identifying a surprising number of therapies that help reverse those symptoms. 


    Many people have success with reversing some of their symptoms, but other symptoms linger. The questions that have haunted me have been:



    "Why do more people not succeed in reversing all of their symptoms"? 
    "Since the body really does know to heal itself, why are so many people still having problems?"


    I have documented the stories of some people who have succeeded in becoming symptom free but why - I have wondered to myself - aren't there thousands and thousands of people who have also become symptom free by now?


    After a decade of research, I finally figured out the answer to these most curious questions. It is not an answer I had expected to encounter when I launched my research program. The discovery provides the framework for all of my work at Parkinsons Recovery incuding the Jump Start to Recovery program. You will not be able to second guess the answer.


    Want to know what my recent revolutionary discovery is? Knowing it offers the opportunity for you to begin reversing your symptoms right now. What is the answer? Listen to my show where I discuss my reearch over the past 10 years which has focused on how to reverse the symptoms of Parkinson's disease and become symptom free.

    Preventing Degenerative Disease

    in Self Help

    Degenerative diseases are forms of the one real disease -- distress of the organism. Stress, toxins, and poor nutrition cause this distress, which may take the forms of arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, infection, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, etc. 


    Preventing disease and inflammation is a process of relaxing distress. Calming stress, avoiding toxins and detoxifying, and pursuing life-supporting nutrition will help prevent any of these forms of ill health.


    Public poisons and EMFs can harm and impair organs. Natural health practices, exercise, a positive attitude and nutritious supplements help maintain these crucial organs. Routine support and periodic detoxification are essential for good health.


    Natural foods, such as a combination of fresh produce, ideally from one’s own garden, antioxidants, enzymes and minerals from super foods and herbs, as well as pure water, build health.
