    Natural cures of illnesses?

    I'm interested in folk remedies and herbal medicine, alternative cures and treatment and prevention.

      Debra1 - We have several on this site who practice herbal/alternative treatment and prevention. One in particular - "geekling" will no doubt offer her wealth of knowledge to you when she sees your post. I too am interested in this but I only know a fraction of what she does. Get ready to learn - there's lots of info here.

      If you have interest then you must learn to do research.


      Funds all sorts of pharmacopia and supplements. Their charts are clear and brutally honest with trial results.

      If anyone might benefit from an organic, vegan, raw & living food eating methodology, it would be a person who suffers from a disease which has a whole symptomology based just about entirely on inflammation.

      The pesticides which are sprayed on food are villianous for Parkinsons. So is tainted water which, in the US, would include most tap water. The high protein, flesh filled diets of most of the world will hurt rather than help a person with Parkinsons. Oils and omega 3s are great but cooking with (heating) olive oil is counter productive. Soy is a no no as well.

      The consensus seems to like green tea (but I find little specific) and turmeric (check out rhizomes or bulbs rather than already powdered imported jars which may be adulterated) both of which are famously anti inflammatory. COQ10 is being looked at but supplements are not my specialty. I favor herbs and food as medicine. Dr. Weil's site talks about some basic methodology.


      Chinese medicine uses a species of poppy (Corydalis) to fight inflammation from Parkinsons. It is used with white peony but is nothing to fool around with unless you are guided by a trusted practicioner. It is much like a weak opioid. A cup of tea wont hurt you, however, and might actually help but it ought to not be used on a regular basis.

      Basically, more fruit and veggies, organic if at all possible, targeted exercises and filtered water will go a long way to improving things. Dairy & grain is not recommended.

      I wrote a book/CD with basic examples of raw & living food preparation and how to ease yourself into better eating, all fruit and veggies for better health.


      Best wishes

      Not pot but cannabinoid oil. If you can get a medical marijuana card in your state, then CBO is shown to work well with brain diseases. It can also help calm you down, increase your appetite and help you sleep. Take care, Judy

      I recently read that there are clinical studies underway using a fecal transplant for Parkinson's Disease.
