Parkinson's Disease Remedies

Treating Parkinson’s disease holistically requires supporting nerve cell function and development to maintain control. Natural supplements boost nerve cell proliferation and function and effectively treat Parkinson’s disease and other nerve issues. Treatment for the condition can prevent symptoms and help affected individuals lead a long, productive life.

What is Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s disease is a condition of the nerve cells in the brain that produce dopamine. The condition results from the gradual degeneration of these nerve cells that control body movements. The first signs are often nearly unidentifiable and may include weakness or stiffness in one limb or fine trembling in one hand. Additional symptoms include depression, cognitive issues and other mental or emotional conditions.

Natural Remedies for Nerve Damage

Treating nerve damage requires nutritional support and appropriate care. Thiamine, Hydrogen peroxide, methylene blue and vitamin C support nerve function and development. With appropriate options, the condition is treatable without surgery or more invasive options.

Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine)

The most promising supplements we have received on Earth Clinic for Parkinson’s Disease is High Dose B-1. Our contributor, Art Solbrig, first introduced us to the work of Italian Dr. Costantini in 2018 after extensive research and communication with the doctor.

Read Art’s invaluable research here.


New research is indicating melatonin can be beneficial for Parkinson's Disease patients after 12 weeks of supplementing 10 milligrams per night. Learn more about the melatonin remedy here.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Free radicals created from the oxidation of dopamine cause cell damage and death. As such, hydrogen peroxide can effectively treat the condition as it breaks down to form oxygen and hydrogen.

Methylene Blue

Methylene blue is a methemoglobin, a form of hemoglobin an oxygen-carrying substance. The compound is used to covert methoglobin in the blood to more efficient hemoglobin. The increase in oxygen in the blood facilitates better nerve function and treats Parkinson’s disease.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that can help treat Parkinson’s disease. Vitamin C helps eliminate free radicals and other toxic molecules that may be contributing to Parkinson’s disease.

Parkinson’s disease is a condition of the nerve cells that includes muscle rigidity, tremors and other issues. When treated effectively, the symptoms can be eliminated and the progression of the disease diminished.

I have been experiencing hand tremors in one hand for a couple of years. My handwriting was terrible as a result of these tremors. So I made a list of my little aches and pains and went to an acupuncturist as an experiment. I knew this wasn't parkinson's, but when I returned home, my tremor was gone. I did a little research today to find some interesting articles. It attacks parkinson's in several ways, so I suggest anyone with the disease do a little research.

Hi Ladyliza (Los Angeles, CA), I am 45 year old male. I just started having a constant twitch in my left pinky finger. I am right handed. I am panicked about the possibility of PD or ALS. I wen to chiropractor a few days ago and it "could" be nerve issues. I am not convinced of the nerve answer since, the pinky has been twitching at rest consistently throughout the entire day and night. I do notice when I do an activity, I don't notice the twitching as much, but I am not sure if that is just due to me not paying attention. I was wondering if you or people with PD or ALS have had the pinky twitch like I described. I am healthy and a realist, so I wish I could accept the nerve thing, but reading about Michael J Fox article about his left pinky twitching and then he got PD, has me very nervous. I am very active and have 2 young children, so any feedback on what I should do prior to going to the Dr would be appreciated. Thank you, Andy

I'm treating my Parkinson's disease with herbals, exercise, & have chosen TCM ACUPUNCTURE (Traditional Chinese Medicine) over traditional DBS;

After 4 treatments, I can now FAST WALK a block without the walker.

I also added Calcium Edonite Clay to detox from a plant-sourced Vit C which contains "ESSENTIAL TRACE ELEMENTS"--unlike my usual fastidiousness in Research, I 'paid no mind' to what the TRACE ELEMENTS are! I progressed rapidly with ~ 4 months use: TRACE MINERAL ELEMENTS, aka: UDOMS ARE DEADLY FOR P.D. PATIENTS!! ANCIENT HEAVY METALS washed up from the sea!!! Just what P.D. does NOT WANT! Within 3 days of detox (metals, pollutants, herbicides & Pesticides, fluoride from tap water treatment, etc).

Note: I called the Nat'l Parkinsons Foundation: rep said she had never heard of any detox!!

How is it working out for you? My wife has parkinson's. She's 38. We believe it started in her late 20's. She's currently 3 pills of D-Lopa. I'm hoping for any type of help...😪

If you haven't already, you might consider looking into vitamin B1/Thiamine at high dose. It doesn't work for every PwP, but it is helpful for the majority, but it can be difficult to pinpoint the correct dose. It can be a process of trial and error.

I can make another recommendation or two, but you didn't give much info in terms of her symptoms. It would be helpful to know that information. Btw, she is quite young to be diagnosed with PD as the most predictive factor for PD is age. What method did her neurologist use to diagnose her?

At just 3 pills of levodopa per day, I am going to guess that her symptoms are very mild at this point.

Why not try mucuna pruriens & amino acids. Acupuncture. And have a “functional medicine”doctor do testing like the doctors don't test.stool samples. 6(they send the labs away ) ususalluY you have to pay out of pocket. Maybe do an oxygen breath test. Hyperbaric oxygen chamber.

After reading lots of posts here about a possible connection between fungus and PD, a logical option to me would be to try berberine. When I looked to see if there were current studies related to berberine and PD, I found several and each seemed to have positive results. I take 2 Berberine Plus tablets daily (1200 Berberine HCl/10 mg Royal Jelly). I started taking it because of a fatty liver and the possible link to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (sibo). The studies that I found linked Berberine to higher amounts of dopamine.

Just a plug for my favorite help regarding Parkinson's Disease. I have found in at least three cases I know of personally, that the use of AEP has slowed or stopped the progress of the disease. Please take a look at the on line article by googling, "Nutrition Review... Calcium AEP Membrane Integrity Factor" which talks of the many benefits of AEP. Lately AEP has also been shown to help PD. AEP can be found on line but I rarely can find it in health food stores. I first saw the benefits from reading Dr. Adkins' book, Vita Nutrients. He used it in IV form with his MS patients. I get mine from Wellness Resources.

Benserazide for Medication Rashes

Posted by Mark M. (Sedona, Az) on 07/29/2020

My mother was prescribed too much Carbidopa / Levodopa a.k.a. Sinemet at the outset of her Parkinson's diagnosis and she developed an allergic reaction to it that resulted in terrible rashes with debilitating itchy hives all over her body.

After many efforts to find solutions, my sister solved the allergy by having her take Benserazide / Levodopa a.k.a. Madopar [sold in Europe], which cleared up the rashes while preserving the long-term benefits of a parkinson's medication.

Sometimes a slightly different take on a conventional approach can make a huge difference.

OK Art, et al,

CBD, which I have been associated with and studied as a medical professional for decades (and owner inceptor of 2 CBD stores) is covered in National Institutes of Heal and Pub Med studies that weakly show its effectiveness against Parkinsons and all spasmodic disorders. Why do you think that people flocked to Colorado to use CBD a dedade ago when it was only used here? Why do you think Sanjay Gupta MD cried when he saw seizures disappear in minutes with his own eyes and apologized profusely for ever maligining CBD? In our stores we have a ledger that people weigh in with to describe their personal results and it is incredible what CBD does for pain, inflammation and relaxation right down to the nervous system which is why seizures and Parkinsons commonly stop forever. Supposedly, 47% of children have stopped all seizures in one day and forever. Why in the world do people think that CBD is marijuana? It cannot get you high and has almost zero thc which is another great and innocent healer. In our stores we have people with Parkinsons with resting tremors so bad they need an attendant to function and one week later they roll into the store to get some more CBD completely functional and independent. Look, I am a combat injured Marine from Viet Nam who got the high medical degree in therapeutic science OTR at 50 years old. I do not lie. Just study a bit and you will be astonished.... try CBD vs Parkinsons....CBD vs seizures... CBD vs cancer .. CBD vs pain, inflammation, depression like that. Just study. I am only asking that people get rid of old habits and look at these realities and truths. I never prescribe anything. I only ask people to study and heal as they wish.

I have been hearing a lot lately about cholesterol lowering drugs, and the link to alzhiemers . Don't you think, it could also be a factor in Parkinsons disease??? The brain is mostly cholesterol anyway. Not sure, but in 80-90% range. I would bet a lot of Parkinsons patients take these drugs. Just a theory. God Bless all who are looking for answers and Help. He has never failed to help me.

Hello Max58j. I am beginning to show signs of PD more and more at age 62. I have never had high cholesterol, but my grandmother and mother both had PD. They also did not have high cholesterol. I always thought there was a genetic link, but after reading on here, it was a vitamin/supplement that we needed (perhaps).

I'd urge everyone to look into CoQ10. This research study gave 1200mg of CoQ10 per day to those with early Parkinson's and showed evidence of slowing functional decline:

We have had this experience with Parkinson and Multiwave oscillation. Very diappointing because the symptoms became rapidly worse after treatments! I think the patient I work with might have responded much better if he would detox from the many years of chemical drugs in his body before treatment. The oscillation might stir up too many toxins. We are now on the way to start up a very slow delicate detox process. Magnesium therapy seems to help some. We are studying vitamin D3 as a possibility. I would love to hear from others on this subject!

Malassezia Yeast

Posted by Joru (Northeast US) on 12/09/2014

I believe Malassezia yeast may be the actual/most common cause of Parkinson's, in combination with environmental & virulence factors that favor its growth and aggressiveness. If so, this has definite implications for prevention & treatment.

Consider the following points:

(a) Malassezia is an unusual yeast in that it is lipophilic (meaning it feeds on lipids rather than sugars/starches like candida). AND it seeks melanin & infects melanocytes. The dopaminergic neurons in the brain -- the area affected by PD -- contains high levels of neuromelanin. Neuromelanin in turn has an affinity for lipids and for iron, both of which favor the growth of this yeast. Note: because it feeds on lipids rather than sugars, it will NOT grow in the usual fungal cultures performed in hospitals (they use sugar/starches in the medium, no lipids). So it is "under the radar" in the sense that there seems to be little testing ever done for it.

(b) Malassezia is known to infect melanocytes in the skin... and I suspect it is involved in causing skin cancer. If so, this would explain the higher rate of skin cancer found in Parkinson's. Also, because it is in the skin (IN, not only "on"), it could hypothetically be pushed into the bloodstream or spinal fluid by medical procedures like injections or spinal taps.

(c) L-DOPA is a precursor to MELANIN, so it makes sense that Malassezia might take it up ... thereby reducing the amount available for normal brain functioning. Low L-DOPA is a key feature of PD.

(d) Acetaldehyde -- produced by yeast -- converts dopamine into a neurotoxin called salsalinol ... which may cause the eventual aptosis of dopaminergic neurons. It also promotes increased iron content and the release of iron, both of which would favor fungal growth.

(e) Malassezia is extremely common and extremely slow-growing. It may be that people have it for decades or a lifetime. I speculate that risk factors for developing PD might include: prolonged use of antibiotics (esp. intravenous) or steroids/immunosuppressants, depleted flora from any other source including packaged foods which contain additives or may be irradiated to remove flora, accumulative lifetime exposure to UV radiation, including sunlight, medical procedures like CT scans et al; eating a lot of oleic acid (vegetable oils including olive oil are the primary culprit here, but also animal fats), high cholesterol/triglycerides, PRN lipid therapy, taking Vit D or iron, use of certain psych meds like antipsychotics that increase lipids. Meds that cause photosensitivity (= less resistance to UV radiation) might be another area of concern.

If my hypothesis is correct, there are definite implications for prevention steps and maybe also treatment. Some possibilities that come to mind are increasing dietary sulfur (antifungal), increasing "good" flora, avoidance of risk factors including dietary veg. oil/animal fat, etc. Based on my reading, buckwheat also contains an antifungal compound. Whether such steps would have an effect, I don't know. More research is clearly needed.

(Northeast, US)

Just wanted to add: if there are other yeasts that have similar characteristics (melanin-seeking, slow growing, lipophilic), they could also be potential causes. It may not be exclusively Malassezia that can cause Parkinson's.

Some ways that Malassezia or other fungi could potentially get into the brain are:

- medical procedures/treatments, such as surgery w/ anesthesia, CT scans of the head (radiation can affect the blood brain barrier temporarily), use of IV drugs (legal or illegal) esp. IV antibiotics or IV lipids;

- spinal tap: if Malassezia is present in (not just on) the skin, a tap could theoretically push yeast into the CSF;

- presence of other infections known to have the ability to cross the blood brain barrier, such as Lyme disease

Previously, studies have suggested that melatonin may be beneficial in people with Parkinson's disease.

This new meta-analysis (10/10/2023) of randomized controlled trials (RCT's) utilizing melatonin in people with PD suggests that melatonin is useful for PD at 10 mg/day and even more so at 50 mg/day or more, and usage length of a year or more is additive to the beneficial effects of melatonin in PD.

Immediate-release melatonin was shown to be superior to prolonged release melatonin. It is also suggested that earlier application of melatonin in the disease may be even more beneficial than application in advanced disease states.

Some relevant quotes from the meta-analysis of RCTs :

' These findings reinforce the rationale of our study, suggesting that melatonin, when used in specific treatment regimens, may alleviate symptom severity and reduce sleep disturbances in Parkinson's disease.'

' Analysis of UPDRS total scores indicate that after at least 12 weeks of treatment, melatonin significantly impacts Parkinson's disease progression when doses of ≥10 mg/day are used. This trend of enhanced melatonin efficacy with higher doses at longer treatment durations has been consistently reported in trails comparing 50 mg/day melatonin with 0.25 mg (61,62) and 50 mg/day melatonin with 5 mg (63) for various outcomes. Furthermore, trials included in our analysis also reported significant results with 50 mg/day melatonin for 1 year (56) and non-significant results with 10 mg/day or 4 mg/day melatonin for 12 weeks (57,58). These findings, supported further by melatonin's ability to exhibit virtually no acute or chronic toxicity (64,65), strongly advocate its long-term utilization at higher doses as a safe choice. '

' Analysis of UPDRS total scores in groups receiving melatonin ≥10 mg/day revealed significant results with no heterogeneity (I2 = 0%). However, including studies with <10 mg doses increased heterogeneity substantially (I2 = 63%). Potential contributors may include dose-dependent and formulation-dependent pharmacokinetics of melatonin, as low dose studies used prolonged release formulations and high dose studies used immediate release formulations (44). Moreover, variations in treatment duration could also play a role, as longer durations with higher doses consistently demonstrated enhanced efficacy in previous studies (56–58). '

' Apart from dosage and duration, a crucial difference among these trails was the timing of melatonin intervention. In the significant study (56), melatonin was initiated in newly diagnosed patients immediately after observing a satisfactory response to anti-Parkinson's therapy. In contrast, patients in non-significant studies (57,58) had mean disease duration of 5.7 ± 1.9 and 5.0 ± 3.9 years respectively, indicating significant pre-existing damage at the time of melatonin introduction. This selection of patients with longer disease duration and introduction of melatonin at a later stage reveal an inherent flaw, as starting melatonin before neuronal loss is crucial for its free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties (18,19,31,33,42) to effectively prevent degeneration and reduce symptom severity in Parkinson's disease. In addition, a sub-analysis focusing on only immediate-release formulations, also yielded significant results, however, use of prolonged-release formulation in only one study (58) hinders appropriate comparisons. '

' Hence, melatonin can indirectly lead to an improvement in motor symptoms through sleep improvement. This effect appears to be unrelated to its antioxidant properties, indicating a multifaceted potential for melatonin in Parkinson's disease treatment. '

' As far as we know, a systematic categorization of melatonin into dose groups for motor symptoms and sleep disturbances in Parkinson's disease has not been conducted before, and is a defining feature of this meta-analysis. Furthermore, it strongly recommends the use of long-term, high-dose immediate-release melatonin in future investigations and emphasizes the significance of selecting patients with shorter disease duration and initiating melatonin early to fully explore its true therapeutic potential. '


My favorite quote from this meta-analysis:

' These findings, supported further by melatonin's ability to exhibit virtually no acute or chronic toxicity (64,65), strongly advocate its long-term utilization at higher doses as a safe choice. '

I'm glad to see studies confirming the potential of melatonin in PwP, whereas earlier studies only hinted at such possibilities based on the known healthful methods of action of melatonin in humans.

For those who may remember, I have previously reported the benefits of high dose vitamin B-1 /Thiamine HCL for Parkinson's disease.

Now I would like to talk about one of my favorite supplements, melatonin, that a recent randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study showed was beneficial for PD patients after just 12 weeks of supplementing only 10 milligrams per night! Yes, finally, a quality human study confirming that melatonin is beneficial for people with PD.

This study showed multiple benefits in patients that include the following. Using standard testing, melatonin showed improvement in anxiety, depression, total antioxidant capacity, increased glutathione, and improved UPDRS Part 1 test results! Melatonin also significantly lowered the inflammatory marker, hs-CRP, or high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein and inflammatory TNF-a while lowering LDL cholesterol and improving insulin resistance! Some of these improvements are suggestive of the idea that a more extensive study and or higher dosing may produce even better results because many of these improvements imply a reduction in total oxidative stress and oxidative stress is one of the most damaging factors in PD that destroys dopaminergic neurons and other cells in the substantia nigra of the brain.

To say I am excited that this study would be an understatement! Studies showing benefits like these in humans with PD from a single supplement are almost non-existent. Hopefully, they will follow through on this study with similar studies using pharmacological dosing of melatonin and more extended length studies.

While this study is very good and confirmed that melatonin can be beneficial in people with PD, it leaves many unanswered questions such as what would have happened if the study had been 24 weeks long instead of 12 as 12 weeks is very short for a study like this? Would the benefits range increase, would the benefits stay the same or increase the level of improvement seen? What would have happened at higher dosing?

Remember that Dr. Shallenberger is using dosing that is as much as 36 times higher than what was used in this study in some of his patients, and he gives all of his patients 180 mg of melatonin per night in the form of three 60 mg capsules in the evening. He considers this a preventative dose.

Overall, I feel this study has opened a door that has been closed for too long, and hopefully, there will be follow up studies to answer these questions! Here is a link to that very recent study abstract :

Melatonin is lowered by high dose vitamin D, but raising the melatonin level in conjunction with the vitamin D level is synergistic in terms of fighting certain virus and disease such as Covid-19 and PD. Vitamin D has shown benefit for PD in multiple studies and can act as an antioxidant also, though not nearly as potently as melatonin which can neutralize up to 10 oxygen radicals compared to other antioxidants that can reduce only one oxygen radical.

In PD, melatonin is elevated in the blood as the body's attempt to raise its total antioxidant capacity which is depleted by PD and melatonin is capable of doing that if there is enough of it, but the body is only able to raise melatonin so high and consequently the bodies own antioxidant system is not able to completely come back into the normal range as reflected in studies which show that glutathione is lower or insufficient in PD patients.

The study link in the original post shows that just 10 mg of melatonin every night is able to raise glutathione levels up as well as the total antioxidant capacity. This is a very important activity in PD as oxygen radicals and peroxynitrite are at elevated levels and both destroy dopaminergic neurons and other brain cells in the substantia nigra specifically and the brain in general.

Melatonin is a potent scavenger of peroxynitrite and oxygen radicals and an inhibitor of NADPH Oxidase which is a promoter of peroxynitrite. What this all shows is that oxidative stress, peroxynitrite and other oxidants including H202are doing a considerable amount of cellular damage and melatonin is able to ameliorate some of this damage with just 10 mg/night. At a minimum the available literature suggests that melatonin may slow disease progression as well as ameliorate some of the many symptoms of PD through its multitude of protective actions in the body including acting in a potent antiinflammatory capacity and again this is important because the excessive oxidant activity which raises inflammatory markers and levels in patients with PD.

Melatonin has also shown synergy with other antioxidants such as vitamin C, D and E and supplements such as NAC, ALA and Quercetin to name a few.

Melatonin is a unique and amazing molecule that is the most potent antioxidant in the human body!

Hello, my husband's family has a history of Parkinson's disease and we have been concerned that he may have the beginnings of this condition. There is a Doctor I like to watch on you tube from Costa Rica and his name is Alonso Vega. He has been making videos(spanish) on the importance of glutathione iv infusions to detox the brain. He does indicate that in order to be effective it must be through IV as glutathione supplements don't really work. Just food for thought how glutathione may also have a positive impact to prevent parkinson's disease. We will be taking our son to their clinic for a different condition but while we are there I will also be asking about the treatment for Parkinson.

Hi Mari,

It may be an option worth considering to contact Dr. Mischley as she has trained dogs that sniff out the "scent of Parkinson's disease". The accuracy of her trained dogs seems to be at least as good, if not better than the currently available testing methods for PD. You would have to mail her a dirty t-shirt of your husbands so that her dogs can sniff it to help determine if your husband may or may not have PD.

Methylene Blue

Posted by Yaocihuatl (Colorado) on 12/17/2013

To Whom It May Concern,

I have a mother who is in her early 70's and has been diagnosed with Parkinson's. She fell ill with a h-pylori infection and almost died. The ER doctor put her on some strong anti biotics and she is recovering from the pylori but when we took her in she was shuffling badly, slight arm tremors and a mask like face. I've tried to get her to eat better, avoiding foods with lots of sugar, pesticides etc but she's used to her diet and is struggling. Regardless of this she has still shown signs of improvement but is complaining of weakness, stiffness and a feeling that she can't move at times when she wants to. I have read through the threads on this site about the Methylene Blue. I cannot understand the dilution. I have no way to since I am dyslexic with numbers. I have personally been taking the MB 1% diluted by taking one tspn full of MB and diluting it with 9 tspns of water. I take 5 -7 drops in the morning in 6 ounces of water with a 1/4 tspn of vit c powder and a 1/2 tspn of baking soda, sometimes a full tspn.

My questions are:
1. am I even close to the correct dilution and please don't tell me in equations because I can't understand them. What I do understand is what I've described, one teaspoon MB and 9 teaspoons of water.

2. I need to have specific information on how to give the MB to my mother and in which combination, taurine/potassium (which I don't think that she can have because of her high blood pressure)/baking soda? etc. As soon as possible please?

She weighs approximately 140 lbs, she's 5ft 2 inches tall. She's on medications, metoprolol and aspirin. I have spoken with a pharmacist who has said that there are no contraindications with her meds and the MB.

Please, she's feeling the effects and I know she's very frightened, the docs seem to think that the PD was set off by a mild stroke that she had just after my dad died almost 3 years ago. He died of institutionalized pnuemonia/parkinsons. She is not taking any parkinson's medication at this time.

I know that you all get a lot of emails asking for advice so I am not asking to be "special" I am just asking for clear concise and reliable answers as soon as you are able to. Thank you for your time and experience. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,Yaocihuatl

Sear Yaocihuatl,

May we suggest you read two articles If the URL does not transmit, please look up"Father Jose Chorr magnesium chloride two pines". Also If the URL does not transmit, please look up "Health from the Ocean Deep Acres USA". We recommend your mother use liquid sea minerals, such as Aussie Trace Minerals (order in your state, Colo.; also available from other web sites); rather than the powder that Father Chorr used. The powder in the U.S. at least, appears to be sourced from the Great Salt Lake, which apparently may contain heavy metals.

Let your mother drink 1 teaspoon liquid sea minerals in a glass of water twice a day, beginning with once a day, as Father Chorr suggested, and increasing after a few days. If the stools are too loose, decrease to 1/2 tsp. once a day and increase more gradually.

Let your mother avoid eating meat; the most success with Parkinson's is with the vegetarian (no eggs) or vegan diet. Just be sure to include at least 2 tablespoons freshly ground flax seed every day in the diet for Omega 3 essential fatty acids, and drink extra water. We wish you and mother all success.

I got some methylene BLUE (we're talking blue) from a pet store--the only place I could find it. It says not for medicinal, human or animal use--but I took a couple drops anyway because they always say that stuff. Is there a different kind I should have gotten? Ted said it was the stuff for fish tanks so that's what I got. I thought I should maybe check before I took any more. If someone could email me directly I would appreciate it. I don't think it would take much of the stuff before you could give the Blue Men a run for their money--or at least a Smurf. If it matters, I forgot to mention I got it for Parkinson's.

Dear Shel,

The methylene blue I used was from a fish aquarium store. It is usually 1% concentration. Ted encourages a dilution to 0.1%. When I first gave it to my father with the amazing results, I gave it with sodium ascorbate. It really worked to increase his energy and initiation of action. He is still taking it and it still helps. Other supplements have also helped him a great deal, like transdermal magnesium oil. This stuff has changed his life very much for the better. It has helped a great deal in reducing stiffness. What has harmed my father is bulk magnesium citrate powder from I ordered many bulk supplements from ___ ___. I was told to give to my father "the more the better" of magnesium citrate. I did. But what I have learned, nearly too late, is that the white powder that was labeled magnesium citrate does not have the solubility characteristics and other typical characteristics of magnesium citrate at all. It has the characteristics of possibly calcium carbonate. I can pay $300.00 to have it tested at an analytical lab, but I am not able to pay for that at this time. I will do it later. The main thing is that be sure to learn from my mistake. It caused a stroke in my father. The lesson is to buy from a reputable bulk supplement suppler who actually tests the supplements that come from China. Also I think it would be prudent for us to learn to test our own purchases even if crudely by checking for the known properties of each substance, like ph and solubility. ____, the owner of ___ ____, told me that neither he nor his supplier out of Georgia test the bulk supplements they receive from China and then sell to us.

So keep up the methylene blue because it may be very helpful to you. Ted told me that it also may build up in the body's system somewhat over time. So you will need to work with the dose and be sure to take it with sodium ascorbate. It seems to be something needed together with the methylene blue. Also if you add the methylene blue to sodium ascorbate in water, the blue color disappears.

I hope this is helpful to you. I'll pass on some words given to me by a young lady who observed me working with my father. Don't give up. Never give up.

Hi John...I have been using Methylene Blue(MB) plus Vit C for a while now.

I bought the 1% MB at a hardware shop in the aquatics section. Then I converted the 1% MB to 0.1% MB by adding 1 X part by volume of MB to a dropper bottle, then I added 9 parts by volume of water as well. I just use a simple bottle cap for this -- where 1 part by volume equals one cap full. This will give you 0.1% MB. I put this mixture into a suitable bottle with a dropper top.

When I need it, I take one full glass of water with 2 grms Ascorbic Acid completely crushed and dissolved in it and add just one or two drops of the 0.1% MB to it. I take this twice a day if I need the energy or if I feel a cold or flu coming one. Gives you alot of energy and significantly boosts the immune system.

Hi Jane, I am interested in making my own transdermal magnesium for head tremors. I have actually tested positive for Lyme disease and Lyme apparently consumes the Magnesium in the body. Have you considered having your dad tested for the presence of Borrelia Burgdorferi. Lyme can cause Parkinson's symptoms. I in fact believe that Michael J Fox, may be Lyme positive. He was apparently bitten by a tick and was put on a 6 week course of antibiotic therapy. He then later on developed Parkinsons. Most of us in the Lyme community know that Lyme is rarely eradicated with a 6 week course of Antibiotics. I also know that heavy metal poisoning seems to go hand in hand with a lot of these neurological symptoms. Therefore I am concerned about the claim by Ancient minerals that many of the bulk pharmaceutical grade Magnesium Chloride has lead and mercury. I have ordered some Magnesium for fish tanks off of Ebay and bought a test kit for home use and will test it for lead content. I also wrote the supplier to find out if they have a chemical analysis of the product. If it is shipped from China, I am doubting that it will. I also contacted an independent lab to find out how much testing for Mercury content would cost as I have not been able to find a home test kit for Mercury. I am hopeful that the transdermal Magnesium will be a big help. I can't afford to pay the prices that some of the companies that market the Mag Oil charges.
