Comprehensive Health Protocol

Parkinson’s disease is a condition that affects the neurological system. Sometimes, a person is afflicted with not only Parkinson’s disease but other medication conditions at the same time. The Healthy Foundations Program is for patients that have multiple health conditions. It will help improve the health of the whole body and not just the neurological system.


Amino Acid Protocol

The Amino Acid Protocol is a natural treatment for Parkinson’s disease that, for multiple reasons, can have a significantly positive impact for Parkinson’s patients. Parkinson’s patients have a deficiency of dopamine in their body. Typically, patients are put on medications that contain L-Dopa (the precursor to dopamine) to replenish the deficiency of dopamine. However, every conventional medication that contains L-Dopa is combined with Carbidopa. Carbidopa can cause significant side effects and do much damage to many systems of the body when taken long term. The side effects of Carbidopa can be tremendous and often are more severe than the symptoms of Parkinson’s itself. The side effects include uncontrolled muscle movements, worsening of Parkinson’s disease, severe nausea and vomiting, depression, anxiety, and even suicidal thoughts. Since L-Dopa is the one ingredient that has a positive impact on Parkinson’s disease, often patient remain in Carbidopa even though the side effects can be so negative. The Hinz protocol can be an incredible solution for patients who need L-Dopa, but do not want the side effects of Carbidopa. The Hinz protocol uses a natural source of L-Dopa to reverse Parkinson’s symptoms but eliminates Carbidopa so that the body is then able to replenish dopamine without the consequences and side effects of the Carbidopa.


Analogy Of The Army

I often use an analogy with patients so they can better understand the reason keeping the whole body healthy can positively influence the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. I say your immune system is like an army of soldiers and you only have 100 soldiers. These soldiers are responsible for keeping the body in good repair and healthy. However, if you have multiple medical conditions, then each condition is going to require some attention from the soldiers. Let’s say, for example, you have Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, hypothyroidism, and irritable bowel syndrome. In this instance, your immune system is doing the best it can to keep all medical conditions in check. If you have Parkinson’s disease, you would want all 100 soldiers of the immune system handling Parkinson’s disease. However, when you have the other conditions mentioned, some of the soldiers are handling Diabetes, some are handling hypothyroidism, and some are handling irritable bowel syndrome. Now, instead of 100 soldiers handling Parkinson’s Disease, you have fewer soldiers available to handle Parkinson’s. In this instance, you want to help the body improve the other conditions so that you can allocate more soldiers to Parkinson’s disease. Doing this can improve the neurological symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
