In this blog I want to go over a study that came out on October 27, 2021 in the AJMC journal. It will be attached to the the bottom of this blog. The title of the study is “Large Study Finds Parkinson’s Disease US Death Rates Soared 63% Over 20 years”. So over a two-decade timeframe, 20 years, we see that Parkinson’s rate of death have soared. Can we blame this on genetics? Absolutely not! So what happened, everyone’s genes change within 20 years? Nonsense. Approximately 7% of Parkinson’s disease is from genetics. We must begin to look at the model of what it is that we are following, what it is that we are doing and what is producing so many cases of this neurodegenerative disease that the death rate has soared by 63% over the last 20 years.  I can tell you that I’m seeing this in younger people on a regular basis.  I also want to tell you that there’s multiple causes for neurodegeneration. If you are showing signs of neurodegeneration, you need to take immediate action and get on this because by the time you get symptoms, you have massive damage in the neural axis and you need to do whatever you can to restore function to whatever level you can, improve adaptability and then have a health plan of action. By the way, a health plan of action is not taking drugs five times a day. That’s a management of symptoms, if it even does that, and every person doing that has side effects they can’t manage. Every single person that’s doing that is adding more stress into an already stressed out system. We need to look at what’s happening directly inside of you creating your neurodegeneration and then figure out what you can do to try to shift that as quickly as possible. Again, drugs are not required for health. If you are using them, you are only managing symptoms. If you look at an anatomy book, a physiology book or a biochemistry book you’re not going to see drugs in there. Drugs are not required for health! Drugs usually speed the process on a long-term basis because all drugs add to your allostatic stress load and lower your health over a period of time. With that said, we need to begin to look at this problem differently. We need to stop treating the diagnosis and start assessing each individual patient to figure out why they are not adapting and what can be done to try to work on this epidemic of Parkinson’s disease that has now increased and the death rate has soared 63% over 20 years.  This is unacceptable.  The model that we’re following must be broken…it is broken. We need to start looking deeper by going to practitioners that understand what health is. Health is the ability to adapt to the internal and external environment.  Health is not about managing symptoms. That is crisis disease intervention, it is not healthcare.
