  1. Just saw an article about this watch. Supposed to help with arm tremors - google "Emma Watch"
  2. What happens if you take too much C/L? How does it make you feel or affect you?
  3. My experience with constipation. I have Gerd as well as IBS. I have found for me that high fiber cereal in the morning as well as a very specific routine for BM's is critical (train the bowel) to eliminate everyday at the same time. Sit on the toilet for as long as it takes to have a movement same time everyday. I also dont eat anything without fiber in it. No fiber, no eat.
  4. IMHO our current government is run by the weathiest corporations and a bunch of corrupt old men that are still living in the past. Things will change in 4 years and go in the other direction. Yoyo effect. The extremist on both sides.
  5. BigRing may i ask how long you have been diagnosed? 2 years for me and just recently uped my c\l to 2 - 25/100 3 times daily and i do feel better. Thanks all for the input. Greatfull
  6. OMG Always playing the victim. You can keep on without understanding a thing im talking about and making up all sorts of things about me. I know you by your words but you know nothing about me. What does this thread have to do with PWP? Defending the victim status quo? Stop using my name as a rebuttle to your point of view. STOP PLEASE.
  7. Linda. Who are you to have me banned? Do you really think you speak for the majority here? There are people that agree with me regarding your thread. Maybe I should have you banned for spewing your bigotry and one-sided form of religion. You are a mean and narrow-minded human being afraid of open discussion and dissension. Haveing me banned will not change the falicy of your beliefs.
  8. So, LUKE this thread is only for believers? Hhhmmm ok. Got it. Please help everyone on here understand that. Special and exclusive club. So in this club you can disparage those of a different moral persuation, still trying to prove to the world that being LGBT is a choice lifestyle. Do you receive comfort from that? Does that help your PD?
  9. Pardon me Dave. I have a right to my opinion as you or anyone does. Dont give me advice on protocal for this forum. I have read far worse on other threads here. Maybe the person responsible for this thread or repeat supporters share some responsibility for the content. I totally stand for what i have writte.
  10. Discussing religions for the purpose of comfort is one thing. Pushing a religion for the purpose of conversion is another. Ninety percent of the content here was generated by Linda in her effort to convert the so called lost souls to the glory of her god. The recent post that bothered me most was the one she posted regarding the scientific documentation that supports her position that LGBT community persons actions are a choice rather than a natural condition of their birth. What has this to do with PWP? IMHO again this forum is no place for this anti LGBT propaganda.
  11. I know this is a subject broached here many times but maybe I have a different approach or at least different information. To qualify as a patient in Arizona, a person must have one of the following qualifying conditions: – Cancer – Glaucoma – Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) – Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) – Hepatitis C – Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) – Crohn’s disease – Agitation of Alzheimer’s disease – A chronic or debilitating disease, medical condition or the treatment that causes:Cachexia or wasting syndrome; Severe and chronic pain; Severe nausea; Seizures, including those characteristic of epilepsy; Severe or persistent muscle spasms, including those characteristic of multiple sclerosis At present there is an effort to add Parkinson's Disease to that list - nothing yet though. My thoughts are if Medical Marijuana is approved and known to treat or at least beneficial to the above listed conditions might there be possibly some benefit to PWP as well. We all know the testing routine for pharmaceutical it will take literally years for anything to be approved for Parkinson's within the medical establishment. Marijuana isn't what it use to be and today more than 779 marijuana strains exists. These are engineered for taste, effect condition, disease and more. December 2013 - Spurred by growing reports of the medical efficacy of cannabidiol (CBD), the second leading active ingredient in marijuana, patients are increasingly seeking out high-CBD varieties for treatment of conditions ranging from severe epilepsy and multiple sclerosis to anxiety and cancer pain. CBD has long been overshadowed by delta-9-THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the primary active ingredient in marijuana, because unlike THC, it does not produce a psychoactive “high.” CBD has nonetheless long been known to have useful anti-spasmodic, anti-epileptic, anti-anxiety, and anti-psychotic properties. Although CBD lacks noticeable effects when taken alone, it has a calming, sedative effect when combined with THC, cutting down on the anxiety, paranoia, and memory impairment that many users find unpleasant or debilitating with regular marijuana. CBD-rich strains accordingly have particular appeal to older users and medical patients who are uncomfortable with the THC high. Sorry for the long post but felt a revisit of this medical benefit was greatly needed. IMHO this product is worth researching and revisiting for PWP. There is cannabis with no THC thereby no stoned high.
  12. I seem to remember something about the VA doing excellent work with Parkinson's Disease. Does anyone have any information regarding this? Thanks
  13. Im trying to get benefits from the Camp Lejeune NC water issue. Check Google on this issue details and attys that will take your case to the VA for you.
  14. Dancing Bear - You said you would support anyone starting a thread on these issues. Well IMHO this isn't the place for any of those topics. If it's not directly related to PWP then I would not be in favor of it. There are many other blogs or forums that cover every issue on earth. If i want to discuss religion i will go to a religious forum and likewise for any other subject. If I want to learn and discuss Parkinson's Disease I will come to this forum or other regarding the same points.
  15. This forum isnt an open or religious forum. The interest is Parkinsons for the benefit of PWP and their support group. Why this thread has been allowed to continue is beyond me. It has nothing to do with my belief system. Christians can always justify inclusion in any group for the pure opportunity of soul harvesting. I know i dont have to read it if i dont like it. That isnt the point at all and you know it. If there was a thread on here for the pure opportunity of supporting the LGBT community you would be the first to complain. Maybe some of the PWP fit into this group. You dont know. I see no difference.
  16. Because im not aware of the history or personalities of this thread. Just voicing my displeasure and opinion.
  17. RE: ‘Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences’ By: Matt Barber I personally find this subject offensive on this website supporting persons with Parkinson's Disease. What in the world does this have to do with PD? I know I'm going to get grief from some of you for this but - hey! That's the way it goes. Most every group, every religion, every social structure is always questioning the personal habits or beliefs of someone else. We can't just allow people to be human and pursue their own brand of happiness without constant ridicule and derision from so called persons of faith and perfection. Everything we as humans do to survive is apparently the target of some other group that always thinks they have the answer for everyone else. I know "Love the sinner but not the sin". I've heard that crap all my life. It's not enough to love someone but you want to change them as well to met your or your Gods definition of right and wrong. Enough already - IMHO this forum isn't the place to proselytize against the LGBT community or evangelize for your certain religious beliefs. Very offensive.
  18. I was serving on the USS Coral Sea CVA43 between about 1/1/1967 to June 1970. Spent 3 Vietnam cruises but have no contact with land. Also my ship isnt on approved list with the VA. I do have PD and was considering the VA for treatment. I am relocating to Biloxi Ms where a VA hospital is near by. Just wondering if the VA will treat me since my PD may not be service connected. Wondering how good the care would be compared to local physicians. Cant locate a MDS in the immediate area so may default my care to the VA.
  19. Just saying all information and experiences are greatly appreciated
  20. I haven't had any experience with or like the symptom you mentioned but feel based on everything I've read it could simply be a another symptom of PD. Since PD can exhibit any number of odd / strange behavior. I'm 71 and am always wondering if it's age or PD or something else bothering me. It's like living on the edge all the time. But was wondering about my own special symptoms if i may interject here. I've been experience a progression of weakness in two places on my body. First my thighs will feel very weak at times, not necessarily tired or fatigued but simply very weak. I also get the same symptoms across my upper chest parallel and into the front of my shoulders. I've always had great blood pressure and have had in recent history EKG'S and echo cardiograms with always good results - so don't think it's my heart. Feeling at a loss but i do have an appointment with my MDS in a week so will check with her.
  21. Diabetes drug slows experimental Parkinson's disease progression, human trials to begin next year Date: December 7, 2016 Source: Van Andel Research Institute Summary: A new investigational drug originally developed for type 2 diabetes is being readied for human clinical trials in search of the world's first treatment to impede the progression of Parkinson's disease following publication of new research.
  22. Benadryl will also help with too much saliva. Benedryl was used for PD prior to CL
  23. If there is a benefit to marijuana CBD and THC why not partake? There are articles noteing the full range of cannabis properties are best benefits. Im not crazy about the THC high but if the best benefit comes in utilizing the entire plant that is what i will do. There are different effects to each strain of cannabis. The THC can be utilized without much of a high at all. Do the due dilligence of research.
  24. IMHO Donald Trump will not change and come up to our standards of behavior. He's still using Tritter as he did during the Primaries. We can hope and pray for Gods intervention but it will not happen. Trump is a most dangerous person. If anyone says anything against him just watch his reactions. He has not changed and cannot change.
