New Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease

The exact cause of Parkinson’s disease is unknown. Genetics may play a role, and environmental toxins such as pesticides and herbicides have the potential to increase risk. Repeated head trauma, such as that experienced by professional boxers, can also trigger Parkinson’s disease. Fortunately, safe, natural approaches to slowing this disease do exist.

Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease

Although there’s a lot that medical science does not know about Parkinson’s, we do know that free-radical damage contributes to its progressive nature. That’s why we use intravenous nutrient (IV) glutathione in treatment for Parkinson’s disease patients.

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that exists naturally in the body, and patients with Parkinson’s have dangerously low levels of glutathione in the affected area of the brain. Boosting stores of this protective antioxidant not only guards against further damage, it also enhances the function of surviving neurons.

Rather than administer glutathione orally, it is infused intravenously so it can easily cross the blood-brain barrier and take effect. Most patients see dramatic improvements after just a handful of treatments for Parkinson’s disease—and many perk up after their first infusion. Even better, studies suggest that benefits last for two to four months after a treatment course.

Using HBOT for Parkinson’s Disease Treatments

For a one-two punch, we pair IV glutathione with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which works wonders with lasting benefits. HBOT floods the brain with oxygen. This therapy, which is administered by breathing 100 percent oxygen in a special pressurized chamber, slows neuronal degeneration, mobilizes rejuvenating stem cells and enhances angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels that nurture damaged areas).

The synergistic effects of IV glutathione and HBOT provide remarkable results in treatments for Parkinson’s disease, as demonstrated by the improvements noted by many of our patients at the Whitaker Wellness Institute.

Gerald’s Treatment Story

Gerald came to see us six years after he was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s. At that time, he was exhibiting typical symptoms of the disease: an unsteady shuffle, difficulty speaking clearly and the characteristic expressionless “Parkinson’s mask” caused by facial rigidity.

Gerald received treatments for Parkinson’s disease, includsing IV glutathione and vitamin C. But according to his wife, Phyllis, what helped the most was HBOT. “Gerald came out of the HBOT chamber on the third day without his Parkinson’s mask. I was just thrilled. I was first attracted to him by his beautiful, sparkling brown eyes, so I was elated to see them dancing back at me again. I feel that his hyperbaric treatments are what has kept him going.”

If you or a loved one is suffering from Parkinson’s disease and you’re looking for solutions to slow this disease and improve quality of life, consider IV glutathione and HBOT.
