New hope for parkinson disease patients.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I just want to share this link with you,please read. https://medicalxpress.com/news/2017-08-drugs-beta2-adrenoreceptor-linked-parkinson-disease.html.A lot of medications used to treat other conditions have been tested on pwp in other to find the one that will be most effective in stopping/curing the degeneration of neurons in PD.I am particularly concern about the speculation of beta blockers causing parkinson disease,although ,this has not be proven with subsequent trials,but a link has been found between people using beta blockers and the development of parkinson diease in one trial,and it has also been discovered that people who use a drug for the treatment of asthma are less likely to develop PD.Beta blockers like propananol,metropolol,atenolol are used mainly in the treatment of high blood pressure,they block the beta adrenernic receptors,reduce the heart rate,and cause vasoconstriction of blood vessels in the tissues.This medication has side effects like,depression,dementia,which are some of the symptoms of PD.The dementia which is a side effect of beta blockers is called pseudodementia by expets,but on a long term use of this drug,no one knows if pseudodementia will become dementia for real.The good old asthma medication salbutamol (inhaler) is a beta 2angonist which prevents vasoconstriction,and therefore enhances increased blood flow to the tissues.This asthma medication has been suspected to be beneficial in preventing or stopping the brain degeneration in PD, in a trial carried out by researchers,But more trials needs to be done.My main question is this,has anyone been on the blood pressure medications, beta blockers,most of which have names ending with "nol",and developed PD?If so ,according to the link above ,it may be wise to discuss an alternative medication with your MD for BP treatment.

My wife was diagnosed of Parkinsons Disease at age 59. She had severe calf pain, muscle pain, tremors, slurred speech, frequent falls, loss of balance, difficulty in getting up from sitting position. She was put on Senemet for 6 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet. During this time span she was also diagnosed with dementia. She started having hallucinations, lost touch with reality.
 
This year, our family doctor started her on NewLife Clinic Parkinsons Disease Herbal mixture, 1 month into treatment she improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case of dementia, hallucination, weakness, muscle pain or tremors.
 
Visit NewLife Clinic website ww w.newlifeherbalclinic .com. She is strong again and able to go about daily activities.

From what I can tell most pwp will do and  try and believe anything regardless of the side effects. There's always someone pushing something. The only real sympton releaf in the near future is medical cannabis. Im not pushing it but just saying.
