Recovering from any disease means improving the health of your whole person. I have not yet found a single dietary regime that has led to complete recovery from Parkinson’s disease. But eating healthy food is one of the most practical and best ways to start the process of getting well. Conversely, if you eat food with no nutritional value, your body will lack the resources for recovery.
So-called “primitive people”, before crowded village/city life became the norm, often lived 80+ years with no degenerative disease. We can learn from them and provide all the nutrition our body craves.
In this step, it is necessary to eliminate “foods that harm us” and consume the “foods that can heal us” if we want to be on the road to recovery. Harmful foods, additives, preservatives, flavour enhancers etc are riddled through our supermarket items. These chemicals are highly neurotoxic (i.e. they damage or kill nerve cells).
We need lots of vegetables, fruit, eggs, fish, nuts, seeds and herbs, plus some very lean meat, legumes, quinoa and buckwheat. We should consume very little “old” grains like rye, barley, millet, spelt, kamut and oats, but NO wheat or dairy foods.
