Neuroscience Nutrition in Parkinson’s Disease

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 14 Nov 2016
  • Steve Blake, ScD Presents:
    Parkinson’s disease involves a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Symptoms can include tremor, rigidity, difficulty thinking, and slow movements. Diet can have an impact on our ability to make dopamine. Find out how to adjust diet to improve dopamine production. We will explore how to avoid the foods and toxins that may deplete the brain cells that make dopamine. We will learn about certain foods that help protect brain cells and slow degeneration. Since symptoms do not often show up before half of the dopamine-producing brain cells are gone, all of us can benefit from proactive risk reduction.

    My father has been organic plant based + low protein for nearly ten years and his Parkinson is developing rapidly, we're gonna try either keto and/or carnivore diet next because this obviously doesn't work for everyone (or it gets even worse, we'll see).

    Listening to vegans talk about nutrition can be frustrating sometimes. They like to criticize meat while ignoring grass-fed animals and Wild game and raw dairy. If you don't want to consume it that's fine but don't pretend there isn't far healthier alternatives to industrialized food. That's like refusing to eat vegetables because they're covered in pesticides.
    Also he criticized supplements because the companies make them for profit? If the company is making them for a loss I don't think they would be making them for very long. There are great supplements out there you just need to do a few minutes of research.
    Great information though if you put his personal bias aside.

      Rick Alan How do you defend meat when the cholesterol and saturated fat when it is the root cause of problems like atherosclerosis and Alzheimer's? Maybe instead of assuming he's finding reasons to push veganism on you, hear him out. Perhaps he saw the evidence, went vegan, and now wants to share the good news.

    Is this prevention only or for reversing also?

    What about using the remedy mucuna pruriens, classic herbal remedy from ayurvedic tradition that has been using this remedy for thousands of years? Even has formal studies and shows the same if not better results than the drug, but without the side effects.

    45:38 Sulforaphane is in broccoli, but if you cut the cauliflower, Brussel's sprouts, or broccoli, and leave it on the cutting board, for at least 40 minutes, enzymes will make more sulforaphane, up to effective quantities. In fact all cabbage products produce it, but these three do it the best. Sulforaphane is also a good anti cancer agent.
