"Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) (or the Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome, after the Canadian physicians who described it in 1963) is a rare degenerative disease involving the gradual deterioration and death of selected areas of the brain.
Males and females are affected approximately equally and there is no racial, geographical or occupational predilection. Approximately 6 people per 100,000 population have PSP..."

I see that this condition isn't listed on the ailments but I'm hopeful that there is something. My friend (male, 50ish) has been diagnosed with this debilitating disease He has been turned down by Johns Hopkins and Mayo Clinic. I know that it is a degenerative neurological disease. Has anyone had any success with anything at all? Ted?"
EC: Hi Elizabeth, your question has been sent to Ted.

Usually I have found that most conditions of cerebral palsy has to do with the presence of virus or bacteria in the brain cells. The remedy is straightforward, I would just try the hourly lysine 1000 mg for 6 hours, for three days. Should fever rises during that one of the three days, usually this indicates the presence of virus in brain cells and the recurring dizziness should go away. If that is so the case is virus, and elaboration of remedy shall include lithium, lysine, glutamine, citrulline, and threonine to kill the rest of the virus. For example, if tested positive, then lysine, glutamine is taken a 1/2 teaspoon of each for 6 hours for roughly 5 days, a lithium chloride 10% solution is prepared and taken once a day at roughly 10 to 20 drops. The citrulline is taken at only 1/8 teaspoon twice a day, with threonine added at 1/4 teaspoon along with lysine, glutamine dose. Lithium will kill the remaining virus. Over the longer term some licorice extract maybe taken should there is some remaining viruses left over. I have as yet to test the licorice extract to see if it does kill the remaining 5% viruses once the immune system has killed most of them, usually in a matter of 2-3 days. The rest of days after that is just maintenance does to prevent infection. Usually a viral of nature exist along the nerves that control the balance, as similar as Meniere's disease that was cured, or contained in several people who do have it.
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 11/26/2010: Mike from Warren, United States replies: "I have no idea what this indicates but I wanted to pass it along. I saw a patent online that was seeking to patent Curcumin which is the supposed active ingredient in Turmeric Root as a treatment for Supranuclear Palsy. Piperine the active ingredient in pepper was also a component. My father has Supra Palsy. I started giving him three capsules of Turmeric Root and one capsule of Pepper a day. He had a Herxheimer Reaction. This means that he actually felt worse for a couple of days while toxins were being flushed from the body. The proteins in this Supra Palsy disease build up and become toxic. He feels better after a few days of this treatment. I don't know if he feels better because the Turmeric is mopping up the toxins (which it can indeed do) or because it is having some other effect. The physical symptoms such as trouble swallowing, balance, etc... have not improved. He simply feels better. I am hoping to see further improvement but enough time has not elapsed to know what will happen in the future."
