The Link between Parkinson's disease and Probiotics

 Reviewed July 2014

You can't prove what did not happen.   Suppose you learn that certain nutritional remedies have the potential of preventing problems from developing.  If you never have the problem how do you PROVE that you prevented it?

The references at the bottom of this article may lead you to further research.

Take Parkinson's disease for example.  By the time the disease shows up, major neurologic damage has already been done.  PS - Alzheimer's and Parkinson's have a very close relationship.. They are the first and 2nd most common neurolocal problems of aging.

Are we implying that it is possible to apply a nutritional remedy that will have the potential of preventing Parkinson's disease from developing?  Yes - because there appears to be a very strong link between  Dysbiosis in the GI tract and Parkinson's disease.

Dysbiosis is defined as an unhealthy change in the normal bacterial ecology of the intestines.  The definition includes the condition that results when the natural flora of the gut are thrown out of balance.

Common conditions which may cause Dysbiosis:

    Antibiotic treatment  -
            including the use of multiple antibiotics
            especially when probiotics are not used,
            and especially when treatment is long term:
    Diarrhea or vomiting
    Drug treatments - especially those which cause constipation or diarrhea
    GERDS (acid reflux)
    GMO foods (consequences of glyphosate)
    Food Allergies
    Inflammatory Bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's)
    Leaky Gut
    Typical Western diet - high in sugar and processed foods which are low in nutritive value
    Unexplained or an undiagnosed cause of abdominal pain

Which products are most likely to be beneficial?
Ultra 4x6 Probiotic - provides 6 probiotic strains that colonize the gi tract from the lower small bowel to the rectum.  The effect is to restore normal flora.
Ultra Omega-Linic - provides GLA, EPA and DHA, the essential fatty acids required to balance the excess Arachidonic Acid prevalant in the typical Western diet.  This is important because the brain is mostly made up of fatty acids.  These long chain, polyunsaturated fatty acids (LPUFAs) have been shown to be important to both brain structure and brain function.  Ultra Omega-Linic is also     important to proper function of the GI tract.  In fact these LCPUFAs are important to all body structure and functions.
Ultra Vites - high in essential nutrients - and especially high in B Vitamins - Folacin and B12.  B Vitamins support neurological function and. all of the metabolic processes.  Ultra Vites supplies the basic nutrients needed by the body (this marvelous biochemical factory we walk around in).
Enzymes Plus - support complete digestion of food.  It provides Gastro-Active and Entero-Active activity to help break food into small enough molecules for absorption .
Argiletz French Green Illite Clay - restore mineral balance, eliminate toxic agents & bacteria - used often to stop diarrhea

    Low Carbohydrate lifestyle modification with emphasis on high fiber foods
    A Basic Package with Ultra 4x6 Probiotic (Ultra Omega Linic, Ultra Vites & Ultra 4x6 Probiotic) 
    A GI Support Package (Argiletz French Green Illite Clay *, Enzymes Plus and Ultra 4x6 Probiotic)    * this clay is especially important for constipation or diarrhea

Windrose Aromatics
from Nutrition Pure and Simple with Information from Windrose Aromatics

Reviewed July 2016
All day you've been on your feet.  You're tired, hot and bothered - or cold and weary.   You get home and want to just sit.  But there remain important things you want to do: greet the kids, pet the dog, pay some bills, cuddle up with your spouse - well, you get the idea...

And you just don't feel like it.

Hold on!  Before you give up on the day, why not give Essential Oils a chance?  Just a few minutes soaking your feet in nature's magical, calming, refreshing oils can relax you and redeem the evening.

You deserve it.

Here are the easy basics:
You need a small tub, large enough for your feet, filled with water.  Stir in essential oils.  Place the tub on the floor, just in front of your favorite couch or chair.  Put your feet in the tub, sit down, lean back, close your eyes and relax.

After soaking wrap your feet in a large towel.  Relax for another 5 or 10 minutes.

Three Foot Soak ideas:
  1. For a soothing, stress-release foot bath, use very warm to hot water.  Add to the water: 12 drops marjoram, 2 drops lemongrass, 6 drops cedarwood.  Soak your feet for 20 minutes.
  2.  For a reviving, fortifying foot bath use very cold to icy water.  Add to the water: 10 drops pine, 5 drops peppermint, 5 drops rosemary.  Soak  feet for 5 minutes.
  3.  For a healing cleansing foot bath use tepid to warm water.  Add to the water: 8 drops lemon, 8 drops eucalyptus, 8 drops tea tree.  Soak your feet for 15 to 20 minutes
Use Essential Oils for tired feet to perk up a tired you.  You will be refreshed and ready to enjoy the rest of the day.
