Glutathione therapy in Parkinson’s disease.


How Glutathione therapy helps Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is a devastating illness, occurring in one out of every 100 people over 65. It is a slowly progressing disease of the nervous system that results in progressive destruction of brain cells (neurons) in an area of the brain called the substantia nigra.  As we age, levels of glutathione in the neurons of the substantia nigra decreases.  At least 80% of the substantia nigra cells are lost before symptoms of Parkinson’s becomes apparent.  This is why it is essential to protect or maintain those cells under oxidative stress.

Several factors explain why Glutathione is so beneficial in helping Parkinson’s patients:

1)  Glutathione increases the sensitivity of the brain to dopamine, allowing the dopamine in the brain to be more effective

2)  Glutathione’s powerful antioxidant activity protects the brain from free radical damage

3)  Glutathione has a powerful detoxification ability

Glutathione treatments considerably improve some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease including difficulties with ridigity, walking, movement, coordination and speech.  A marked reduction of tremor has been observed as well as a decrease in depression

Why is Glutathione so important?


Functional Neurology and Naturopathic Medicine

Glutathione is so important because it is responsible for keeping so many of the keys to wellness.  It is critical for immune function and controlling inflammation.  It is the master detoxifier and the body’s main antioxidant, protecting our cells and making our energy metabolism run well.  The good news is that you can do many things to increase this natural and crucial molecule in your body.  An essential mechanism for raising Glutathione in the body is by supplementation via nebulization and suppository delivery systems.


Functional cranial release treatment used in conjunction with Gluthatione is highly effective in treating patients presenting with symptoms of Parkinson’s disease,chronic sinusitis, brain function, tinnitus, chronic fatigue syndrome, sleep apnea, migraine, stroke, vertigo and more.
