What To Expect
Call Parkinson’s Clinics at 218-626-2220 then discuss any questions you may have free of charge.
If you decide to proceed, we will set up a one-hour orientation-introduction with one of our doctors over our internet-based telemedicine equipment. There is a fee for this visit. The Parkinson’s Clinic staff will discuss details on your initial phone call.
Starting medical care, the following is a general overview.
- With home internet and computer you will not leave home for these visits.
- Visits last 15 to 20 minutes.
- It takes 4 to 6 months of weekly visits to achieve optimal results. Some patients require 2 or 3 months to achieve optimal results.
- Length of time to achieve optimal results varies greatly.
- Other medical problems may extend the time to achieve optimal results.
What is meant by optimal relief of symptoms?
Observations tend to be counter-intuitive (the opposite of what common sense dictates). Self-treatment is not an option. An example is administering too much, or too little amino acids can cause nutritionally driven symptoms to be present. Achieving optimal relief of symptoms occurs with the establishing daily amino acid intake in the extremely narrow range between taking too much, and too little.
What can the patient expect when optimal relief of symptoms occurs?
When this happens, it means with regards to nutritional deficiency symptoms they are 100% symptom-free or find relief of symptoms greater than previous treatment attempts. For most patients, this is a state which should continue for the years to come. Observations supporting lack of nutritional collapse progression include symptoms that are not deteriorating as the patient continues on the same daily dose of nutrients.
Experience reveals that once optimal relief of nutritional deficiency symptoms occurs further halting of progression or slowing of progression of symptoms caused by nutritional collapse usually occurs. This concept is very important. As early as 1941 AB Baker, MD demonstrated in the Journal of the American Medical Association that vitamin B6 deficiency symptoms can be identical to Parkinson’s disease symptoms.
