The Hinz
A unique and healthier approach to Parkinson's disease care.

Marty Hinz, MD

Amino acid research started in 1997 at Duluth, Minnesota. The environment became unique. Duluth was the only town in the United States where all insurance policies were paying for this type of care. We developed a better way. Every day I was stopping more drugs than I was prescribing because they no longer needed them.

Fake internet experts sadden me. When I see negative posts on the internet by people that have never read our research papers and know nothing about our results it only serves to confuse real patients who need real help.

It saddens me when patients find caregivers who don’t know what they are doing but claim to be using the Hinz Protocol.

The Hinz Protocol

For those that claim they treated themselves with nutrients under the protocol, this is foolishness. Much of the decision making required under the Hinz Protocol is counterintuitive (the opposite of common sense) and requires formal training. There are two groups of caregivers claiming they are giving medical care under the Hinz Protocol:

  1. Properly trained medical professionals who know what they are doing
  2. People who do not know what they are doing

To determine if someone is proficient in this approach, ask:

  1. Are “pill stops” being done?
  2. For nausea are you using the “2-1-3-4-8 protocol” followed by GI consults as needed?

If the caregiver is not using “pill stops” or using the “2-1-3-4-8 protocol,” the caregiver is not proficient in this approach and will never get patients optimal results.
