Can ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICAL TOXICITY cause PARKINSON’S DISEASE

ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS negatively impact nearly every tissue of your body. As your body’s most metabolically active organ, your BRAIN is especially susceptible to NEUROTOXICITY or damage from toxins. This leads to a variety of BOTH physical AND psychological symptoms. Today, we explore the question: PARKINSON’S DISEASE – Can TOXICITY cause?

Recent scientific evidence suggests a compelling link between exposure to certain ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS and an elevated risk of developing PARKINSON’S disease.

 ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS/TOXINS (including PESTICIDES, HEAVY METALS, MOLD and INDUSTRIAL POLLUTION) take a TOXIC toll on BRAIN health.

They can increase the risk of depression, suicide, ADD/ADHD, and autism, as well as learning and memory problems, dementia, Alzheimer’s and PARKINSON’S DISEASE.

Fortunately, the problem of BRAIN TOXICITY and PARKINSON’S can be addressed if you know what symptoms to look for, what specialized laboratory ‘TOXICITY’ tests are useful and the cutting-edge substances proven to REMOVE these poisonous substances from EVERY cell of the human body.

So, let’s examine this form of TOXICITY and how a safe, natural and science-based approach to detecting and correcting it can restore your BRAIN HEALTH from TOXICITY to PURITY.

That’s good news as this is a REAL, often ignored problem that can deteriorate quickly.

 

What are the ROOT CAUSES of Parkinson’s?

PARKINSON’S DISEASE is a brain disorder that causes unintended or uncontrollable movements, such as shaking, rigidity and difficulty with balance and coordination.

It is almost always PROGRESSIVE.

Symptoms usually begin gradually and worsen over time. As it progresses, people may have difficulty walking and talking. They may also have mental and behavioral changes, sleep problems, depression, memory difficulties, and fatigue.

Some cases of Parkinson’s disease appear to be hereditary, and a few cases can be traced to specific GENETIC mutations. While GENETICS is thought to play a role in Parkinson’s, in most cases the disease does not seem to run in families.

 

Many researchers now believe that Parkinson’s results from a combination of GENETIC and ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS, including exposure to…

 TOXINS!

 

What Chemicals or Environmental Factors are linked to Parkinson’s Disease?

In the book, Ending Parkinson’s Disease, extensive evidence draws a link between some cases of Parkinson’s disease and prior exposure to various TOXIC chemicals.

The authors called the increasing prominence of PARKINSON’S DISEASE… “a man-made pandemic.”

Its prevalence has closely tracked the growth of industrialization and has increased dramatically with the use of PESTICIDES, INDUSTRIAL SOLVENTS and DEGREASING AGENTS in countries throughout the world.

“Over the last 25 years,” the authors noted, “the prevalence rates for Parkinson’s, adjusted for age, increased by 22 percent for the world, by 30 percent for India, and by 116 percent for China.”

Furthermore, they added, men, who are more likely to work in occupations that expose them to industrial products linked to the disease, have a 40 percent greater risk than women of developing it.

Among other exposures, a solvent called trichloroethylene (TCE) (linked to Parkinson’s), is so widespread in the American environment that nearly everyone has been exposed to it.

TCE contaminates up to 30 percent of the country’s drinking water and, because it evaporates readily, it can enter homes undetected through the air.

A proposed ban of TCE was postponed indefinitely in 2017 by the Environmental Protection Agency as well as a ban on the nerve toxin CHLORPYRIFOS. This is an insecticide linked to Parkinson’s that is widely used on crops and GOLF COURSES.

Another prominent TOXIN, the pesticide PARAQUOT, can increase the risk of Parkinson’s by 150 percent. It has been BANNED by 32 countries, including China, but not by the United States, where use on agricultural fields has doubled during the last decade.

Both TCE and paraquat were also banned years ago in the Netherlands, and the incidence of PARKINSON’S there has since declined.

As with smoking and cancer, a cause-and-effect relationship is strongly suggested as well to CHEMICAL TOXICITY EXPOSURE and the development of Parkinson’s disease.

In fact, a pioneering study in California by Dr. Caroline Tanner and Dr. William Langston of more than 17,000 twin brothers, both fraternal and identical, suggested that ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS outranked GENETICS a CAUSE of Parkinson’s.

Thirty years ago, researchers at Emory University showed that rats developed classic features of Parkinson’s when given rotenone, then a popular household insecticide that is still used by fisheries to eliminate invasive species. When the researchers examined the rats’ brains, they found a loss of nerve cells that produce dopamine, the same damage that afflicts people with Parkinson’s.

Dr. Langston and Dr. Tanner later showed that…

Farmers who used ROTENONE and PARAQUAT, among other PESTICIDES, were more than TWICE AS LIKELY to develop Parkinson’s as those who did not use these chemicals.

‘Although Parkinson’s is most likely to afflict older people, its rise has far exceeded the aging of the population. In just 25 years, from 1990 to 2015, the number of people afflicted globally more than doubled, from 2.6 million to 6.3 million, and is projected to reach 12.9 million by 2040.The disease is progressive, characterized by tremors, stiffness, slow movements, difficulty walking and balance problems. ‘

It can also cause loss of smell, constipation, sleep disorders and depression. While there are medications that can alleviate symptoms, there is as yet no cure. People can live with gradually worsening symptoms for decades, resulting in a huge burden on caregivers.

And the economic burden of Parkinson’s is huge, said Dr. Tanner, now a neurologist and environmental health scientist at the University of California, San Francisco.

‘In 2017, it resulted in about $25 billion in direct medical costs and another $26 billion in indirect costs’, she said.

In addition to preventing exposure to toxic chemicals, Dr. Tanner said that REGULAR EXERCISE and a HEALTHY DIET can reduce the risk of Parkinson’s even in people who were occupationally exposed to nerve toxins.

How Do I Know That I Have ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS?

Without testing it is difficult to know with certainty that your body, especially your BRAIN, has accumulated these poisons. It’s also difficult to diagnose since conventional medicine does not prioritize the FACT that they are a problem.

Fortunately, while most doctors IGNORE the role of these ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS, Functional Medicine providers do consider ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS that affect health and have ADVANCED TESTING that can uncover these HIDDEN factors of poor health.

 

If you would like to KNOW if you have ENVIRONMENTAL TOXICITY, (including but not limited to HEAVY METALS) an advanced yet simple test is a specific Urine Test. Excreting an elevated level of these substances is a sure sign of toxicity.

The best, most advanced lab that offers this quality testing is Vibrant America.

How Do You Get Rid of HEAVY METALS from Your BODY and BRAIN?

 TOXIC exposure is inevitable.

So, if you can’t completely avoid it, what can you do?

The answer is…

You can make FOOD, ADVANCED SUPPLEMENTATION/DETOX TECHNOLOGY and other LIFESTYLE choices in daily life that both MINIMIZE your exposure to them AND help your body remove them safely.

 

Ultimate KEY to REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS   

Optimize DETOXIFICATION PATHWAYS

Our bodies are designed to DETOXIFY from the outside TOXINS as well as from the inside TOXINS made within our bodies.

Our kidneys, liver GI tract, lungs and skin are part of this natural DETOXIFICATION SYSTEM.

It biochemically transforms a TOXIC substance so that it can be eliminated.

Normally, your immune system defends against the daily assault of all ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS, including HEAVY METAL TOXICITY, but ONLY WHEN it is working correctly and NOT being OVERWHELMED by the extremely high TOXIC BURDEN all around us.

INFLAMMATION blocks detoxification, too. So, for many of us that have CHRONIC inflammation, this interferes with our ability to self-heal.

Failure of your body’s natural ability to detoxify itself from toxins results in health issues.

Supporting the body’s ability to BIND to and ELIMINATE toxins is a key part of healing from environmental exposure.

So, you MUST support your body’s natural detoxification and drainage systems.

New, emerging technology, designed to help remove TOXINS and SUPPORTING DRAINAGE systems (your body’s NATURAL ability to eliminate poisons from itself) are necessary to successfully recover from this kind of toxicity.

Let’s examine this more closely…

 

How do I get rid of these toxins in my body?

Special agents that BIND toxins in the gut and other tissues so they can be more easily excreted are required.

An excellent, natural REMEDY for BINDING environmental toxins is called Carbon Technology

Made of specially-selected and precisely-formulated extracts of fulvic and humic acids, Carbon Technology uses these natural substances to tightly BIND toxins to help remove them from your body via stools.

The fulvic and humic acids in Carbon Technology have advantages to binders like activated charcoal and bentonite clay, two common binders, discussed below.

One big advantage is that Carbon Technology can travel beyond the gut.

Also, fulvic and humic acid extracts are a good source of nutrition, including amino acids, phytochemicals and minerals.  This is good since cells damaged by pesticides and environmental chemicals NEED TO SELF-REPAIR.

Clear out OTHER PATHOGENS

Because many ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS can weaken your immune system, OTHER things like chronic infections — such as PARASITES AND VIRUSES — may more easily take hold in your body.

It becomes a vicious cycle because then these PARASITES make the body more vulnerable to HEAVY METAL toxicity, for example.

Either way, removing unwanted PARASITES from the body helps reduce the STRESS on the immune system.

 

There Is Hope

In conclusion, ENVIRONMENTAL TOXICITY is difficult to avoid completely and impacts many disorders, including heart disease, obesity, autoimmune disorders and even BRAIN OR NEUROLOGICAL problems such as PARKINSON’S.

So, if you’ve ever asked “What is my doctor missing?” and suspect that TOXICITY may be a part of YOUR persistent, unresolved health challenges, including the signs and symptoms of PARKINSON’S DISEASE, do NOT give up.

 This is where ADVANCED SUPPLEMENTATION can be helpful.

It’s important to work with an experienced practitioner who can recommend the right supplements designed to remove these toxins directly.

The good news is that there are doctors with specialized knowledge who are ready with a science-backed action plan to DETECT AND CORRECT TOXICITY.

Addressing this will take you from TOXICITY to PURITY, and allow you to get back to looking, feeling and functioning at your best.
