Parkinson's Treatments And Therapies


Parkinson’s Natural Treatments And Therapies

There is a wide array of natural treatments that can help Parkinson’s. With all the available information and the variety of treatment options, it can be challenging to know which are the best for you. Each treatment and therapy for Parkinson’s disease has unique benefits that can address multiple concerns. Amino Acid protocols can be superior in reducing the side effects and damage of Parkinson’s medications. However, if patients are not a good fit for the program, many other natural treatments can aid recovery and healing. High doses of glutathione, IV therapy, detoxification therapies, nutrition, and natural supplements, have benefits that will improve the health of the body at the cellular and organ system levels. To be well informed on which natural therapies for Parkinson’s can best benefit any individual, a medical provider should thoroughly evaluate the patient’s medical history, physical examination, and presentation of symptoms.

We want people to know there is hope for healing and improvements in quality of life for Parkinson’s disease.

Types Of Natural Treatments For Parkinson’s Disease





There are many Parkinson’s disease treatments and therapies that have been studied that can be hugely beneficial for Parkinson’s patients. Natural treatments for Parkinson’s disease can improve the quality of life, slow the progression of the disease, and potentially reverse some disease processes. The benefits of treatment can improve the quality of the patient’s life. While patients who are interested in any natural treatment should contact a medical provider, many of these treatments, therapies, and remedies can offer hope for Parkinson’s disease patients.

Amino Acid Protocols

Amino acids play a crucial role in managing Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a loss of dopamine-producing neurons. Amino acids like tyrosine and phenylalanine are precursors needed for the body to make dopamine. Helping to replenish these levels can improve dopamine levels in the brain.

Moreover, certain amino acids, such as L-dopa, can be administered as supplements or medications to alleviate symptoms by enhancing dopamine levels. Overall, incorporating amino acids into the diet or as part of a treatment regimen can offer multifaceted support in managing Parkinson’s disease.

Amino Acid (Hinz) Protocol

The Amino Acid Protocol offers a natural treatment for Parkinson’s disease, addressing dopamine deficiency without the side effects of conventional medications like Carbidopa. By using a natural source of L-Dopa, it provides relief from symptoms while minimizing adverse reactions, offering a promising alternative for patients.

Amino Acid Hybrid Protocol

The Amino Acid Hybrid protocol combines lower doses of conventional medication with amino acids to aid in the relief of symptoms. It is often a more manageable path than the Amino Acid (Hinz) protocol. This protocol addressed symptoms effectively and is often a more accessible option for patients.

Intravenous Therapies

IV therapies can benefit Parkinson’s disease by delivering essential nutrients directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system for quicker absorption. These therapies can provide targeted support, such as reducing oxidative stress, enhancing immune function, and improving symptom management and quality of life for patients.

There are several IV treatments for Parkinson’s Disease that can have many health benefits.


Phosphatidylcholine, a key component of cell embranes, may benefit Parkinson’s disease by supporting brain health and function. Research suggests phosphatidylcholine could help alleviate symptoms and slow disease progression by promoting neuronal repair and protection.


Alpha lipoic acid, a powerful antioxidant, shows promise in Parkinson’s disease by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, which are implicated in its progression. Studies suggest that alpha lipoic acid may help mitigate symptoms and protect against neuronal damage, offering potential therapeutic benefits for individuals with Parkinson’s.


Glutathione offers potential benefits for Parkinson’s disease by helping to reduce oxidative stress, aiding in the detoxification of cells, and supporting cellular health in the brain. Studies indicate that boosting glutathione levels may contribute to symptom relief and slow down the progression of the condition.


NAD+, a crucial coenzyme involved in cellular energy production and DNA repair, holds promise for Parkinson’s disease by supporting mitochondrial function and promoting neuronal health. Boosting NAD+ may offer neuroprotective effects and can improve energy in those with Parkinson’s Disease.


Meyers Plus, a combination of essential vitamins and minerals administered intravenously, may benefit Parkinson’s disease by supporting overall health and addressing nutritional deficiencies commonly seen in patients. Some individuals with Parkinson’s report improvements in energy levels, mood, and cognitive function following Meyers Plus therapy.

Detoxification Therapies

Research shows that neurotoxins can play a significant factor in the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease. Since toxin damage can destroy brain cells, toxin exposure can lead to the destruction of the neurons that control motor function and cause Parkinson’s. It seems that nowadays, there are toxins everywhere in the environment. It can be difficult, even with an organic lifestyle, to protect yourself from the toxins. Toxic chemicals enter the body through the foods we eat, the air we breathe, the clothes we wear, and the cleaning, hygiene, and other products that we use. Since toxins are virtually all around us, detoxification therapies can be massively helpful in eliminating the toxic burden on the body.

There are many natural treatments for Parkinson’s disease that will help detoxify the body and improve organ function. When the body is overloaded with toxins, it becomes more sluggish and has a much harder time optimally performing its normal functions. In Parkinson’s disease, the burden of toxins can be greater. As many toxins have the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, they cause damage to sensitive and necessary brain and nerve cells. Not only can toxins make healing extremely difficult, but they can also accelerate the neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s disease.

The Benefits Of Detoxification Therapies Can Include The Following:

Improved Organ Function
Think of toxic burden as oil sludge in a car. Sludge can wreak havoc and cause damage to the engine and will shorten the lifespan on the car. Similarly, the toxic burden can wreak havoc on organ systems and diminish organ function. Therefore, when detoxification occurs, organ function improves.

Better Brain Function
The brain is the most vital organ and can be the organ that is damaged the most by toxins. If the amount of toxins is lessened, the brain may have the ability to heal and begin to function better.

Slowed Aging
One of the things that toxins can accelerate the most is the aging process. Not only the aging of the skin but, also the aging of all the cells that the toxins come into contact with. Detoxification can slow the aging of cells, particularly the nerve cells that are in much need of protection in Parkinson’s disease.

Improved Mental Clarity
If there is a highly toxic load in the brain, mental fogginess is very common. When the toxic load is reduced through detoxification processes, mental clarity and cognition can improve dramatically.


There Are Several Natural Detoxification Therapies For Parkinson’s Disease:

Far Infrared Sauna has been shown to penetrate deep into tissue to mobilize toxins and eliminate them through sweat. With varying temperatures and times, any individual can remain comfortable throughout the treatment while still receiving the detox benefits.

Fango clay is one of the most unique detoxification therapies. It uses a medical clay wax mixture that is heated and applied directly to the skin in areas of high lymphatic flow. This application stimulates circulation of the lymph and blood, which circulated toxins, and allows the body to more easily eliminate the toxins through the sweat, the liver, and the kidney.

Colon Irrigation
Colon irrigation is a gentle therapy that involves gently cleansing the colon with warm, sterile water. Colon irrigation allows more of the buildup of waste in the digestive tract to be eliminated. After some sessions, colon irrigation can also alleviate the toxin burden by assisting the liver in dumping bile that contains waste products.

Supplements can play an essential role in the natural treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is associated with deficiencies of specific vitamins, and diet alone may not be able to replenish those deficiencies. Taking appropriate supplements in the appropriate amounts can restore diminished nutrients. Not only can certain supplements replenish nutrient deficiencies, but many supplements have essential roles in healing and protecting tissue from further damage. Parkinson’s disease is the result of damage to certain parts of the brain that are responsible for muscle control. One could expect improved healing and protection from further damage using targeted supplements.


How Do We Select Supplements?

We constantly evaluate conventional medical research literature to select the supplements that have the most research-based evidence to help Parkinson’s disease. Contrary to some beliefs, there is a lot of research on natural medicine and Parkinson’s disease. PubMed is an online resource that lists all conventional medical research literature. This resource can help anyone access research articles specific to certain nutrients and Parkinson’s disease. We also use observational evidence from supplements that have helped Parkinson’s patients in the past. At times, evidence supports the use of certain supplements based on how well other Parkinson’s patients have reacted and improved to specific nutrients. We always select supplements based on the patient’s unique presentation, underlying health conditions, and needs. A one-size-fits-all supplements plan would not be as effective for the individual as would a tailored supplement plan.
