Parkinson’s May Begin in Gut and Spread to the Brain Via the Vagus Nerve

Parkinson’s May Begin in Gut and Spread to the Brain Via the Vagus Nerve | Japanese acupuncture | Scoop.it
A major epidemiological registry-based study from Aarhus University and Aarhus University Hospital indicates that Parkinson’s disease begins in the gastrointestinal tract; the study is the largest in the field so far.

 

"The research has presented strong evidence that Parkinson’s disease begins in the gastrointestinal tract and spreads via the vagus nerve to the brain. Many patients have also suffered from gastrointestinal symptoms before the Parkinson’s diagnosis is made. The image is for illustrative purposes only."

Military Pokes Holes In Acupuncture Skeptics' Theory | Japanese acupuncture | Scoop.it

Thomas Blasejewicz's insight:

Since there ***IS NO *** really effective treatment, I wrote to the CDC and suggested a try with moxibustion, which is known to enhance the immune function.. Since moxibustion is very unlikely to make anything worse, it would be a little chance. Btu a little chance is better than none.

 

While the CDC wrote me, they let "the people in charge know about moxibusiton", I have absolutely no idea whether anyone is actually considering giving those patients this small chance.

And since there is no word on the internet, I guess that means, people are just waiting ...
