Food, Nutrition and Parkinson's disease.
What does nutrition have to do with Parkinson's?
Have you ever wondered "Why do we eat?" The answer to this question seems an obvious one - Food is essential to life because it provides nutrients and nutrients provide energy to run body functions, help the body regenerate and repair and keeping the immune system healthy and strong. Nutrients support our everyday activities and, ultimately, promote our survival. So, what you eat, matters.
Even though food is essential for survival, not all foods are created equal. Many of our modern day food choices threaten our health and well being. Today, the food industry creates and market food products that are highly processed combinations of palatable ingredients and chemicals that are both appealing to our taste and low-cost but have no nutritional value and are dangerous to our health.
We eat denature food not so much for sustenance and nutritional support of our body but for convenience. You may say - but real food is more expensive, it takes time to prepare and I'm too busy and stressed out to deal with it - I want something quick, cheap and easy. Think about - how do you feel after you consume your "quick, cheap and easy meal?".
Do you feel rejuvenated, energetic, optimistic, do you think clearly, completing all your tasks with ease or do you feel like a wilted flower? Your whole body aches, you are sleepy, tired, can't think, can't complete tasks - and you wander "what's wrong with me?". The story doesn't end there. Without nutritional support (vitamins & minerals) from nutrients rich food your immune system is weakened and your body and your brain are rendered defenseless. Dark forces of disease could be slowly creeping in without you even knowing.
Eating denature foods can produce the opposite effect of sustaining life; it can create nutritional deficiency and compromise your health.
Two categories of nutritional deficiency:
Relative nutritional deficiency exists when nutrient intake and systemic levels of nutrients are normal, while a change occurs in the system that induces a nutrient intake requirement that cannot be supplied from diet alone. We will discuss Relative nutritional deficiency as we talk about Dr. Marty Hinz Protocol
Absolute nutritional deficiency develops when nutrient intake is not sufficient to meet the normal needs of the body system. Absolute nutritional deficiencies can be solved by consuming Nutrients Dense Organic Food and Nutritional Supplementation. Some of the most common deficiencies are vitamins B and C, and vitamin D3 and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, zinc and Iron.
Absolute nutritional deficiency
Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological disorder caused by the degeneration of brain cells (neurons) in an area of the brain called the substantia nigra. These neurons are responsible for the production of a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) called dopamine. The lack of sufficient amounts of the neurotransmitter dopamine is responsible for Parkinson’s symptoms.
The neurotransmitter dopamine is made in the body from amino acids which are the building blocks of protein. Every time we eat a protein rich food such as meat, fish, eggs, chicken or nuts our body breaks down the protein into amino acids. The amino acids are converted into neurotransmitters including L-Dopa, which is then converted into dopamine in the brain. Nutrients (vitamins and minerals) are required for each stage of this conversion process, so nutritional deficiencies may reduce dopamine production.
To support dopamine production you may consider consuming organic food rich in proteins and nutrients (vitamins and minerals) free of environmental toxins such as pesticides and herbicides. Reducing Toxic Load and Optimizing your Nutrition, using food and nutritional supplementation may also help you with health conditions such as constipation, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and insomnia that often exist alongside Parkinson's.
