The standard approach used in medicine is to see Parkinson’s disease patients in the clinic once every six months to refill drug prescriptions while documenting progression and deterioration of the disease.
Unlike standard medical care provided by neurologists and primary care physicians, with this intensive approach our doctors see each new patient weekly in a clinic or their home, via telemedicine on the computer, for 20 to 30 weeks until the patient achieves optimal relief of symptoms (see telemedicine discussion below).
The brain damage at the heart of Parkinson’s disease is not the cause of all the symptoms attributed to Parkinson’s disease. There are 29 different nutritional collapses associated with Parkinson’s disease, and the drugs used to treat the disease. Many of these nutritional deficiencies have symptoms that appear identical to Parkinson’s disease but are different because their symptoms are reversible. Correcting these coexisting nutritional deficiencies is why it may take many weeks to achieve optimal results. Optimal relief of symptoms cannot occur when the patient is seeing a neurologist once every six months; an approach associated with progressive long-term deterioration of the patient’s Parkinson’s disease status.
