Can Chiropractic Care Help if You have MS or Parkinson’s Disease?
Florida is the 4th in the country in prevalence of Parkinson’s disease. People in Sunrise and Downtown Miami are no exception. According to the Parkinson’s Foundation 60 million people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease every year. The incidence of Parkinson’s increases with age. The average age of diagnosis is 56 years old (1). This disease affects men more that women. According to routers news service the rates of Parkinson’s disease is increasing, perhaps due to environmental factors.
What is Parkinson’s?
Parkinson’s disease is characterized by a progressive loss of muscle control brought about by malfunction of methylation pathways that control dopamine an important neurotransmitter in the brain. This is characterized by a loss of muscle control caused by degeneration of the brain.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR PATIENTS WITH PARKINSONS DISEASE: A 2004 study of 81 people in the Journal of the Vertebral Subluxation found a causal link between the onset of Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease and head trauma. Adjustments to subluxations in the cervical spine were found to reverse or prevent the progression of Parkinson’s disease in study of 81 people. (2). Some patients in the study have had a complete reversal of symptoms with a single adjustment. Just about all Parkinson’s patients find chiropractic helpful in increasing quality of life and preventing progression of symptoms.
According to Parkinson’s News Today, Parkinson’s has also been found to be associated with Parasites and other bacterial infections (3). Parasites such as Toxoplasma, as well as some bacterial infections secrete toxins have been found to affect metabolism of dopamine. Muscle testing or Organic Acids Test (depending on your budget can find the presence of parasites). Of course, Organic Acids test will be more accurate in finding the exact amount of brain damaging toxins found in the body. This enables your Miami/Sunrise functional medicine practitioner to design a nutritional program to remove the parasites and toxins that are destroying the brain. You can even order an organic acids test on your own if you don’t have a doctor in your area that uses functional medicine. Our Sunrise and Downtown Miami offices are always well stocked with test kits.
According to the National Institute of health Heavy metals such as iron and manganese may also be involved in the damage to the brain associated with the breakdown dopamine in the brain.
The presence of heavy metals affecting the body can also be found with the use of hair strand testing or muscle testing. Hair strand testing is of course going to give a more accurate measure of not just the levels of heavy metals in the body but also analysis of other minerals that when out of balance can be a harbinger of complicating health issues. Excessive stress, panic attacks, and many serious health risks can be picked up on hair strand tests.
