Stop Parkinson’s disease with this one easy habit
This could be the biggest breakthrough in Parkinson’s research in generations: a way to SLOW the progression of the disease and KEEP your independence.
It’s not some cutting-edge new treatment, and it’s not an expensive new drug.
It’s a pair of sneakers!
As the commercials say, “Just do it” — because the latest research finds that putting your feet to the pavement with a little steady movement each day could make a major difference in how the disease advances.
You don’t have to engage in some intensive workout program. You don’t have to take classes or join a gym. You don’t even have to break a sweat.
All you need to do is spend 22 minutes a day getting some movement.
Any movement at all will do, even just a brisk daily walk.
In the study, folks who got 150 minutes per week of regular activity had LESS decline caused by the progression of Parkinson’s… FEWER mobility problems due to the disease… and a BETTER overall quality of life when compared to folks who got little to no movement.
The study lasted two years, and that’s impressive enough.
But the REAL benefits could extend far beyond that, because as Parkinson’s progresses, many folks with this disease face heartbreaking decisions.
Some have to give up the things they love, and many can no longer drive, cook, bathe, or dress themselves. And sadly, that causes many to leave their homes and have to move into a care facility, where they’re expected to stay for the rest of their days.
Slowing the progression means you can keep your independence longer — and if you slow it enough, you might never lose it.
And it starts with maintaining your everyday activity levels.
But don’t stop there.
If you’re willing to combine those everyday movements with safe natural therapies, you could stop the disease in its tracks. You might even be able to reverse it — because many cases of Parkinson’s are actually caused or worsened by undiagnosed and untreated chronic infections.
It could be bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori as well as funguses, including common mold spores such as the ones that might be living in your basement or garage right now.
Exposure to toxic metals can also play a major role in this disease.
All of these underlying conditions can be treated and make a world of difference in slowing or stopping this disease… but only if you work with a doctor who knows how to spot them.
