What Is Huntington's Disease?

An inherited or genetic disease, Huntington’s disease involves the progressive breakdown or degeneration of the nerve cells located in the brain. Huntington’s disease has a pervasive impact on an individual’s ability to function including diminishing one’s ability to move, think and respond emotionally.

Individuals affected by Huntington’s disease generally develop signs and symptoms during middle age or later – in their 40s or 50s. If onset of the disease begins prior to age 20, the disease is termed juvenile Huntington’s disease. While earlier onset typically results in a different manifestation of symptoms and more progressive development, several common signs and symptoms have been identified. General characteristics of the disorder involve diminishing functional abilities involving movement, cognitive and psychiatric issues. More specific symptoms include involuntary jerking or writhing, muscle rigidity, slow and uncoordinated fine movements, impaired gate and posture and difficulty speaking or swallowing. Additional symptoms include difficulty planning or organizing daily tasks, inability to begin a task or conversation, lack of impulse control, trouble focusing, slow processing, feeling of sadness or unhappiness, social withdrawal, fatigue and excessive sleeping.

The cause of Huntington’s disease involves the inheritance of a defect in a single gene. The disorder is considered an autosomal dominant disorder, meaning that an individual must only inherit one copy of the defective gene to develop the condition.

Remedies for Huntington’s Disease

While there is presently no cure for Huntington’s disease, several options are available to slow the progression of the disorder and to treat the associated symptoms. Supplements including Coenzyme Q-10 and vitamin E are effective at supporting the body’s natural defense against the progression of the disease. Additionally a dietary flavonoid fisetin, found naturally in strawberries and other fruits and vegetables may help slow the onset of motor issues and delays caused by Huntington’s disease. Body cleansing as well as following a clean diet aid in the elimination of toxins and parasites that may be the underlying cause of Huntington’s disease as well. Additional treatment supports include taking cayenne and drinking hot green tea regularly.

Juvenile Huntington's Disease

Hello, I have a friend that has a son with JHD. Is there any kind of natural treatments that might be beneficial to him.

Also on a more curious note, could internal parasites cause the same symptoms as JHD? We would like to know if there are other options out there just in case.

Thank You and Have a Great Day! Lynn

My partner was diagnosed with Huntington's disease several years ago. After many years of research I am presently at the stage where I believe the true cause of this is not from an inherited gene. I now think this and most, if not all, neurodegenerative diseases are actually the result on having trapped emotions. These trapped emotions result from personal trauma or trauma inherited from a previous generation(s). Research the Emotion code and body code. They have helped my partner immensely. Good luck!

Trapped emotions may be a contributing factor because it may increase oxidative stress and inflammatory markers, but high dose vitamin B1, also known as thiamine HCL along with Biotin, may be useful in helping your partner to fight Huntington's disease as discussed here : research team has linked, biotin can restore normal processes.

Here is a relevant quote from the article :

' A research team led by the University of California, Irvine has linked the mutation that causes Huntington's disease to developmental deficits in the brain's oligodendrocyte cells that are caused by changes in metabolism. They found that high doses of thiamine and biotin can restore normal processes. '

Your partner can continue to work on releasing trapped emotions, but hopefully he includes high dose B1 and biotin in his plan as discussed in the article. Both have very good safety profiles even at higher dosing levels. Here is a link to the full study which you can show to your partner's doctor :
