Here’s how I fixed my early symptoms Parkinson’s disease with Glutathione and how I got completely off Parkinson’s levodopa medication and you’ll see why a deficiency in this nutrient plays such a key role in the direction of your health.
There are 16,800,000 results in Google when you search for glutathione. (This is pronounced ‘gloota-thigh-own’). Glutathione deficiency is considered a principle cause of Parkinson’s disease yet you’ll never hear it mentioned by your doctor. You absolutely need to know what it is and how its deficiency in our body is a major factor in the onset of Parkinson’s disease.
My in depth research into the causes of Parkinson’s quickly revealed all about glutathione and the key role of glutathione as the master anti oxidant in our body, which boosts our immune system and also slows the ageing and death of our cells. (Parkinson’s is characterized by cell death of the cells which produce dopamine in the brain.) So by taking radical action to restore my glutathione levels I believe I took a giant step in reversing my Parkinson’s symptoms.
This is what Dr Mark Hyman, author of Blood Sugar Solution, 10 Day Detox Diet has to say about glutathione in his article ‘Essential Glutathione: The Mother of All Antioxidants’:
‘In treating chronically ill patients with Functional Medicine for more than 10 years, I have discovered that glutathione deficiency is found in nearly all very ill patients. These include people with chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, cancer, chronic infections, autoimmune disease, diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, liver disease and more.’

In his article, Dr Hyman refers to 9 key steps to restoring glutathione levels, and I realize that, in fact, I do all nine. I found all these through independent research, and so it’s nice to know that Dr Hyman confirms the validity of my study.
The first step I took was to take four essential dietary supplements which go towards creating the cysteine element of glutathione. Our body manufactures the other two elements naturally, but cysteine has to be from dietary intake. Within months of taking Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Milk Thistle, Curcumin and N-Acetyl-Cysteine, I was on the road to recovery. Only the highest quality supplements will do, though, and you can read where to source high grade ones at my website, www.fight-parkinsons.org.
You can also go there to read about other causes of Parkinson’s and the steps I took to recover my health. It’s hard to believe that, in less than two years, I’ve gone from part-invalid to someone who is now untroubled by an underlying Parkinson’s condition. I quickly learned, after two years of following doctor’s orders and taking the doctors medication,that I was on an inexorable path of decline. So, I took personal responsibility for my health and turned things around. Maybe you can, too. There is now another, much more health restoring route, as a growing and significant scientific body of evidence on glutathione is telling us.
