A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Huntington’s Disease
I had a question the other day about Huntington’s disease.
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a hereditary and progressive brain disorder.
Although symptoms may first show up in midlife, Huntington’s can strike anyone from childhood to advanced age.
Over 10 to 25 years, the disease gradually kills nerve cells in the brain.
This affects your body, mind, and emotions.
Symptoms can vary greatly from person to person.
And stress or excitement can worsen symptoms.
Some symptoms are easier to spot than others.
Abnormal movements may be the first thing you notice.
Weight loss can be a concern at all stages.
Symptoms of Huntington’s disease tend to develop in stages.
Changes may be quite subtle in early stages, making it possible to keep driving and working.
You may just require a little extra help.
With time, symptoms begin to interfere more with your day-to-day life.
In the late stage, you must depend on others for your care.
Walking and speaking aren’t possible.
Most likely you’ll still be aware of loved ones around you.
In 1993, researchers found the gene causing Huntington’s.
Everyone has the HD gene, but in some families an abnormal copy of the gene gets passed from parent to child.
If you have a parent with Huntington’s disease, you have a 50% chance of having the gene and developing the disease.
For now, treating Huntington’s involves managing symptoms.
To deal with Huntington’s disease it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to hydrate and flush toxins.
*Alfalfa is a good source of needed minerals. Take 2,000 mg daily in capsule or extract form.
*Hyssop and lobelia are beneficial because they help control the central nervous system and have a calming effect. For best results, they should be used on an alternating basis.
*Avoid the herb sage.
*Eat cultured milk products like yogurt and kefir.
*Include beet greens, chard, eggs, green leafy vegetables, raw cheese, raw milk, raw nuts, seeds, and soybeans in your diet.
*Eat fish regularly (at least twice a week) and take a fish oil supplement.
*Drink fresh “live” juices made from beets, carrots, green beans, green leafy vegetables, peas, red grapes, and seaweed for concentrated nutrients.
*Eat small meals.
*Don’t drink large quantities of liquids at once.
*Take 2 tablespoons of olive oil daily.
*Avoid alcoholic beverages, animal protein, fried foods, caffeine, and nicotine.
*Avoid MSG and artificial sweeteners as they’re neurotoxins.
*Avoid refined foods and sugar.
*Take an Epsom salts bath twice a week.
*Get regular moderate exercise to improve circulation to the brain.
*As much as possible, avoid stress and tension. Learn stress management techniques.
*Breathe easier; purify indoor air.
*Consider liver and colon cleanses.
*Increase fresh air, sunshine, connect to nature, adequate rest.
*Ensure regular (2 per day) bowel movements.
*Decrease toxic exposures of all kinds.
*Become educated about all possible side effects and detrimental influences of any medications or treatment procedures you are taking or considering.
*Explore dental amalgam toxicity.
