Parkinson’s is a disease where the myelin sheath or the insulation around nerve fibres, begins to break down and the nerve fibres not then being able to respond to all sorts of external stimuli causing uncontrollable twitching and movements.

Parkinson’s usually progresses slowly and takes many years to become incapacitating and science is not clear at all as to how it comes about.

Esoteric insight explains that Parkinson's Disease is an illness of strong upright people who work too hard and carry far too much responsibility for very wide ranging problems indeed. They often are aware of all sorts of possibilities for joyous participation in things around them but they hold back and deny themselves such participation. They exercise their willpower in this denial and this stresses their physical nervous system so that it begins to break down.

I make up a herbal mixture of nervines (or nervous system herbs) which nourish and strengthen the system in a variety of ways and seem to be able to further slow the progression of the disease. Often with the herbs we are able to gain back a recently lost skill for a reasonable length of time and generally reduce the severity of symptoms.

I recommend to my Parkinson’s patients that they also use Maritime Pine antioxidant to address any auto-immune aspects of the disease and that they consult also with Acupuncturists or Energetic Healers in order to get the widest possible alternative healing support.

The mix I make up to support Parkinson’s patients is made up from concentrated herbal extracts of; Hypericum, Skullcap Mugwort, Equisetum and Elecampane to which I add the Bach Flower remedies Elm, Oak, Clematis, and Vine.

An ideal treatment includes a spiritual or emotional release which gives the patient permission to ease up on themselves and revel the joy of life.
