thanks for taking the time to reply.. any med that can cause hallucinations (dr was the one to tell me this as P progresses) I want nothing to do with. i may hv no choice one daaay, but pray this is not so for YEARSSSSSSSSSSSSSView Thread
am in same boat... research Dr Blaylock whos both parents died of Park; he is a neorologist dedicated to research better options for 30 yrs. get his BLAYLOCK WELLNESS REPORT (but stay away from his newsmax (or whatever it is called, it is a news letter on politics). ur mom needs to drink a glass of red wine to relax tremor, neeeds to understand bombarding herself with foods for antioxidents that battle the free radicals in her head that are killing brain cells, blaylock details imp of brocolli, turmeric, coffee, green tea, and red wine for the most antioxidants; eat up to 5 servings of veggies a day (I KNOW!), ETC. then watch the video on line of dr david Perlmutter before and aft he infuses glutathione intravenously www.perlhealth.com/about.php it will amaze u. i am in search of a dr that will do this for me before i get worse. i too DONT WANT TO B ON PARK MEDS; blaylock details what they really do - he lived it thru both parents and is a prof on the subject. I WISH U BOTH THE BEST - esp ck out the indian spice turmeric!!! and i find a 5MG of valium or xanax calms my tremor in hand and that dam interior tremor that shakes our core of confidence. ANTIOXIDANTS ARE KEY, drink 1-2 glasses of RED wine (red is only wine made with skins for antiox) GOD BLESS U both; let me know ur progressView Thread
first - bless u for caring to reply, i feel so alone in this..and u understanding the importance our canines play is awesome. i got to the pt of reviewing how i cld die (with all my blessings and minor hand tremor at present); it was imagining the fear my 2 girls (dogs) when i was not here that kept me here. my one girl wld sit and watch for me forever and that hurt my heart at the thot. so ty for the shared love of our dogs. i was put on effexor rx for antidepressant at emergency but aft just 2 pills i had full body jerks and my corners of mouth were being pulled down as i tried to sleep; NONE OF WHICH I HAD BEFORE, so got off immediately! they did work in the sense that i was more afraid of something else over the minor Park symptoms. seems best for me to control minor inside tremors that shake ur core of confidence with a low dose xanax that i hv had for years for anxiety but 1 mo worth used to last over a yr. now take .25 MG ea day to help with edginess. I FEAR THE MEDS OF PARK MOST OF ALL. sev articles say they are temp, always having to increase to pt of hallucinations and some say they actually worsen. EX. DR BLAYLOCK, NEUROLOGIST WHOS PARENTS DIED OF PARK SAYS: dyskinesas - causes uncontrolled writhing movements, nausia, hallucinations, and on/off pheomenon!!!!!!!!! so i just focus on consuming a ton of sources of antioxidents for now. anyone care to share stories along these lines?View Thread
