Introduction to The Parkinson’s Protocol Review
At the time of writing The Parkinson’s Protocol Review, there is still no known cure for Parkinson’s Disease. Your doctor has most likely told you that your condition will gradually worsen over time. This might get you thinking that you might become dependent on others to do things for you. However, this does not have to be the outcome!
There is reason to remain optimistic. There are changes you can make to significantly slow down the progression of Parkinson’s Disease. Within “The Parkinson’s Protocol” you will discover how you can turn your situation around and improve your quality of life dramatically. Read my review of The Parkinson’s Protocol below.
Reviewing: “The Parkinson’s Protocol” by Jodi Knapp, published by Blue Heron Health News.
Note: The Parkinson’s Protocol is a 79-page digital download. Price: $49. It is written in non-technical language that is easy to read.
Part 1 of The Parkinson’s Protocol
Part 1 of the Protocol dives deeply into what happens in the brain when you have Parkinson’s Disease. You will discover why dopamine is crucial for the health of your brain and what can happen when its loss is not counteracted.
The author then describes the symptoms of all 5 stages of Parkinson’s Disease.
The role of dopamine is discussed in great detail. One of the main focuses of the Protocol is how to raise your dopamine levels sustainably. There are many ways in which you can increase dopamine production, and you’ll find them all in The Parkinson’s Protocol.
I liked the inclusion of some concise case histories of Parkinson’s sufferers who have successfully followed the Protocol. You should find them very encouraging.
What Causes Parkinson’s Disease?
Why is the number of Parkinson’s cases increasing? Are we to blame? If so, why? You’ll find the answers on Page 12 of the Protocol. You’ll discover the risk factors that cause certain brain cells to malfunction and die, and what steps to take to avoid that happening to you.
Depression and Parkinson’s Disease (Page 16)
Researchers have discovered a “direct association between depression and subsequent Parkinson’s Disease”. They also discovered that a lack of dopamine is a central part of that. This is all the more reason to do whatever you can to maintain healthy dopamine levels.
Following a healthy diet plan is crucial for ensuring healthy brain function and delay the progress of Parkinson’s Disease. The Protocol gives very detailed information on what foods you should include in your eating plan and – equally important – what you should definitely avoid eating or drinking.
Exercise (See Appendix 7, below)
Unless you use your muscles, they will waste away. The stronger your muscles are, the better you will be able to move and balance yourself.
Are You Thinking Correctly?
You might be surprised to hear that the way you think can affect the way your body behaves. The section on mindset and Parkinson’s Disease has a ton of information on how to relieve depression and stress. You can even discover how to boost dopamine by changing the way you think!
Part 2: Parkinson’s Treatment
The second part of the Protocol begins by looking at the current medical options for dealing with Parkinson’s Disease.
Pharmaceutical treatments focus on relieving the symptoms of the disease. Mention is made of dopamine precursors (substances your body can use to make dopamine) and dopamine antagonists – chemicals that act like dopamine in the brain.
Pharmaceutical treatments deliver some benefits but they come with many side effects. The Protocol explains why following its guidelines can have a positive effect on brain health.
The Protocol describes the 4 basic steps you can start taking right now that can deliver positive effects for years.
Delaying the Progression of Parkinson’s Disease (Page 29)
Detoxing and dopamine are the 2 main topics covered in this section. You will discover what an amazing healing machine your body is. The Protocol describes how the 3 main detoxing organs process and remove waste, heavy metals and toxins from the body. It then describes strategies you should follow to detox through nutrition and various physical applications.
How to Boost Dopamine With Food
We’ve already seen that one can boost dopamine by taking a dopamine-precursor drug (which can come with side effects). However, there are foods that contain a precursor – a compound that your body can turn into dopamine. The Protocol mentions the 3 main components you should look for, and gives handy food lists for each.
If you’re stuck for meal ideas that include the required precursors, there are 7 delicious-sounding meal ideas that contain all 3 of the dopamine-producing nutrients.
