As neurological dysfunction resulting from toxins and deficiencies increase more than ever before, many might be noticing an increase in shakiness and/ or tremors. Little do many know, this can actually be a symptom of inflammation and toxicity and can also be a sign of early Parkinson’s disease. Although it might be shrugged off as part of just getting old, in truth it can often be a symptom resulting from one of the many medications people are on, have been on in the past, or chemicals they are currently being exposed to environmentally, causing inflammation which leads to malabsorption. The underlying problem that leads to tremors might point to a deficiency in vital amino acids which are the precursors to important brain chemicals which allow us to feel good and function.
Actual Parkinsons, for example, has been explained as the manifestation of a deficiency in the neurotransmitter (communicative brain chemical) called dopamine. This is why patients with the condition are given a prescription called L-dopa. This causes dopamine in the brain to increase (temporarily). The problem is, this can actually lead to a progress called down-regulation, wherein the brain adapts to a short-term increase in stimulation resulting from artificial input of chemicals that lead to dopamine production. Stated simply, the brain basically gets used to having a fake form of dopamine, and starts producing even less of its own natural form. These medications decrease the body’s own natural stores of the nutrients which make up dopamine. (R) This means the sufferer will end up having a short-term relief of symptoms, but later experience a potentially greater amount of symptoms. Long term, this can lead one to lose control over all movement and have issues with voice control, which would be incredibly unsettling.
Thankfully though, it is possible to pre-empt these issues. Since our bodies were so lovingly made, our symptoms can tell us exactly what’s wrong and what we can do to supply our bodies with what they need before the symptoms manifest into a more serious issue. We can help support the body’s natural ability to heal if we simply pay attention to and take heed of the signals it gives us, including tremors and shaking. Every issue can be addressed holistically through supporting the body’s natural systems so that it can function properly, leading to optimal health and well-being.
I want to be clear here that no guarantees or assertions are being made as to curing and reversing any disease. I am only talking about deficiencies here, which can manifest in the form of the discussed symptoms. When looking into this topic, and searching for others’ experiences, I discovered this account by John Gray, who is a well known author and now a nutritional advocate and supplement company representative. The video explains how he completely got rid of his “Pre-Parkinson’s” symptoms. For him this included a subtle shaking of his head, which he didn’t even notice himself! He was lucky enough to have somebody else tell him about his very own bodily symptoms, which were in fact trying to tell him something. John Gray took matters into his own hands when he found this out by way of using a simple amino acid therapy. That’s right. He addressed these symptoms by taking a simple remedy that utilized nutrients found in particular proteins. Initially, he would have to travel to Mexico to obtain his treatment consisting of an IV of the amino acids which pre-curse dopamine. Later on though, with some more investigating, he found that if he was simply able to include particular nutrients and nutrient dense foods in his diet such as whey protein as a source of easily digestible tryptophan and phenylalanine. These are the building blocks that make up serotonin and dopamine, respectively— and fortunately, John was able to produce same exact effect from his own method and never had to go back to Mexico get the intravenous treatment again! His symptom of head shaking has never come back. Furthermore, John discovered in his journey to conquer this health challenge, that these same deficiencies were the actually same problem that manifested as symptoms looking like ADHD and autism, which he experienced as a kid. So he was personally able to solve multiple problems that seem to ail an increasing number of people today, by addressing these underlying root causes.
Thankfully, John got curious about his symptoms and has thrived since with ability to share his experience. He found a variety of other co-factors which included the minerals lithium orotate, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and some potassium as well as chromium. He is also sure to get a sufficient amount of b-vitamins as well as vitamin D, A, C and K, Omega 3’s, L-Tyrosine, 5-HTP, probiotics, HCL and a supplement called NADH (this serves as a fuel for cellular energy, is a derivative of Vitamin B3 and a coenzyme for many chemical processes throughout the body). This combination makes sense because we need proper digestion, an optimal balance of digestive flora, plenty of good fats, vitamins and minerals to feed the body what it needs in order to function properly. These processes are too often malfunctioning under the radar and manifesting as symptoms we all too commonly deem as “normal”.
We all have a lesson we can learn from how John was able to get to the root of his issue. Let us not forget that we may all know someone who could benefit from this knowledge as well. If you have any experience in supporting the body’s natural healing abilities in the face of tremors, shaking, or even Parkinson’s itself, please feel free to share your experience below.
