Take a look at the picture to the right (top). It shows a man suffering from advanced
Parkinson's Disease. Notice the extreme postural distortion which is caused by loss
of motor control. In addition to loss of adequate postural control, movement disorders
(as their name implies) demonstrate much more profound abnormalities, either in the
suppression of unwanted movements (like tremors) or in the coordination of voluntary
purposeful movements (like writing or taking a drink of water). In their advanced
stages, movement disorders can completely incapacitate a person. Now take a look
at the pictures below and to the right. These are actual patients from our office
(they gave us permission to use their images). Both the elder gentlemen in the middle
photo and the much younger gentleman in the bottom photo were stricken with Parkinsonism.
They both required assistance walking and their disease had a profound impact on
their ability to function normally. Their loss of postural control was progressing
and their ability to function independently was significantly compromised (as seen
on the before picture on the left). After treatment with our innovative methods,
both demonstrated visible improvement in motor control (as seen in their after pictures
on the right). In the case of the gentlemen in the bottom picture, he was able to
reduce his Parkinson’s medications by 2/3rds and eliminate the need for a walker.
We have had similar results with dystonia, Tourette’s Syndrome, Essential and Familial
tremors. Another one of our patients was scheduled to have a deep brain stimulator
implanted into her brain to try to stop her tremors. She was able to cancel that
surgery and stop all of her medications after completing our brain based neurological
rehabilitation program. There is hope for movement disorders.
By using specific non-invasive methods to activate those parts of the brain that
are malfunctioning (or sluggish), we offer the potential to balance those parts of
the nervous system that are the source of most movement disorders. The techniques
we developed are safe, simple and are providing the first real hope for patients
suffering from movement disorders in years. Part three of this article discusses
some of the techniques we employ. The scientific references that support our techniques
are available for download on page 3 also.
As part of our program we offer simple urinalysis testing which can indicate which
specific neurotransmitters in the brain are out of balance in our patients suffering
from movement disorders. Once the neurotransmitter profile has been determined for
each individual patient, over-the-counter amino acid nutritional supplements can
be instituted to help to restore balance to the nervous system.
