Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Remedies

| Modified on Oct 16, 2023

Treatment of progressive supranuclear palsy relies on eliminating the underlying cause of the disorder. As the disorder is often associated with virus or bacteria in the brain, eliminating infection often alleviates the disorder. Many natural supplements are able to effectively achieve healing in this manner.

What is Progressive Supranuclear Palsy?

A brain disorder, progressive supranuclear palsy is a condition that results from the deterioration of cells in the region of the brain responsible for movement. Individuals with the condition typically have problems with walking, balancing and moving the eyes. Additional symptoms include stiffness, awkward movements, falling, problems with speech, dizziness, apathy and depression. The cause of the condition is unknown.

Natural Treatments for Steele-Richardson-Olszewski Syndrome

At present, no medicinal cure has been identified for this condition; however, many natural remedies effectively treat and potentially reverse the syndrome. Natural supplements including lysine, licorice extract and turmeric have proven effective for treating progressive supranuclear palsy. These options aid in general better health as well as elimination of the disease-causing toxins in the body.


Lysine is an amino acid found in a variety of common protein-rich foods including beans, cheese, yogurt, milk, meat and others. This amino acid functions in a variety of ways, but one of the most important is its role in fighting infection. Lysine is an effective treatment for progressive supranuclear palsy as it eliminates the virus or bacteria causing the condition.

Licorice Extract

Licorice root is used in treating a range of ailments. In regards to this palsy, however, the natural compound helps reduce inflammation that may be causing pressure and discomfort. The extract also fights infection, eradicating any toxic substances in the body.


Turmeric also has a wide range of uses. The spice contains a high concentration of curcumin, the “active ingredient.” Curcumin functions to reduce inflammation, eliminate toxicity and prevent further progression of the condition.

Progressive supranuclear palsy is considered a brain disorder that causes issues with walking, balance and eye movements. Natural treatments, however, are effective at eliminating the cause of the disorder and treating its symptoms.

a loved one of mine was recently diagnosed with PSP (Progressive supranuclear palsy).

as I understood it is a very rare neurological disorder that affects body movements, walking and balance, and eye movements.

The disease is said to have a very progressive course and the typical patient lives an average of 6-9 years

in short not good.

According to the classical medicine system, there is no medication. the doctors and specialists have not prescribed anything for him either.

this I personally find a big plus.

partly because this disease is a kind of calcification of the brain (if I understood correctly) we would like to try borax.

I have already done a lot of research and found most of the infos. I have also already purchased everything; Borax, scales, measuring spoons, books, ....

I am convinced he should try Borax, he himself is still hesitant because of the following questions:

-can Borax be taken together with medication to lower cholesterol (Atorvastatin Teva 80mg, 1 per day)? what could be the effect?

-can Borax be taken together with medication to lower blood pressure (Ramipril EG 5mg, 1 per day)? what would be the effect?

the patient is my mother's partner, male, and is 62 years old, weighs 93kg and is 1m78 tall. he lives in Belgium and I live in Switzerland.

we would be very grateful if anyone here could help us or have some tips

Given that there are no meds specific for progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and you are willing to do the research, please look into fecal microbiome transplantation (FMT). This procedure is where they take the stool from a very healthy and screened donor and transplant it into the person with PSP via various methods, but typically via colonoscopy delivery or FMT capsules as the two most common delivery methods. They may also give multiple highly potent antibiotics prior to the FMT as a means to kill of the existing gut microbiome in order to allow the FMT to get off to an unhindered start.

This is one of the extremely few treatments that has shown benefit in people with PSP that I am aware of. You have an uphill battle ahead of you to try and find a doctor who will use FMT for an off label use such as PSP. FMT is approved for certain digestive disorders such as C-diff and severe IBS, but only after standard treatments have been exhausted or basically as a last resort, when in fact it should be used as the first option considering its very good safety profile. With the newest screening methods, FMT has shown itself to have a very good safety profile. Here is a link to a study where they used FMT in people with PSP and the results they got compared to placebo :, regulating the intestinal microbiota composition.

Here is a relevant quote from the trial :

' Our findings suggest that, compared with placebo, FMT treatment significantly improved motor and nonmotor symptoms in patients with PSP-RS, as well as reduced intestinal inflammation and enhanced the intestinal barrier by regulating the intestinal microbiota composition. '

Given the known outcome of PSP, I am of the opinion that it is a miscarriage of medical practice that FMT is not made readily available to patients with an untreatable disease such as PSP. It is a horrible disease to be certain.

I think that you are already well aware that these results in people with PSP are untouchable by currently available medications and supplements. PSP is definitely a disease where time is of the essence and it would be prudent to start your search for a doctor who will use FMT for PSP as soon as possible. You could print out the above linked to human study as a means to convince a doctor to use it off label.

To give you a better idea of just how many diseases FMT has shown benefit for and what it can do, I have written the following about FMT and it should help you determine quickly how important this could be for your mom's partner :

Good luck in your search for a doctor, Pieter and please keep us posted on what you find!

Hallo Peter

Borax geht mit Medikamenten nicht in wechsel wirkung. Ihr können mit abstand von Ein bis Zwei stunden ein nehmen dann sind ihr sicheren seite.. Florid haltige sachen nicht mehr benutzen.Wegen Borax dosierung ich weisses nicht was du weiss aber mindestens Ein gramm Borax anfangen bis der Pasient daran gewöhnt hat danach dosis erhöht werden bis zu Zwei gramm und auf zwei tages dosis eingenommen werden. Morgen und Abend 2 Std nach dem Essen...

Hi Peter

Borax does not interact with medications. You can take one to two hours apart then you are on the safe side. Don't use anything containing florid anymore. Because of the borax dosage, I don't know what you know but start with at least one gram of borax until the patient gets used to it and then increase the dose up to two grams and can be taken in two daily doses. Morning and evening 2 hours after dinner...

My father is 62 and has PSP otherwise known as Progressive Sub nuclear Palsy. The outlook is grim as he has basically been told they know nothing about the disease and there is nothing but a few clinical trials going on.

I looked into stem cell therapy but that all seemed pretty sketchy to me.

Any information that your might be able to provide would be very helpful. Thank you very kindly in advance, we sort of feel like we are on our last leg here. Very Respectfully.

Actually PSP like Parkinson's are of viral origins but maybe different kind of virus from Parkinson's. I have a simlar cases of PSP and she was cured for couple of years that I know of. Didn't follow up that case and lost track. The most important treatment is lysine every hour for one hour starting 5 pm, 6 pm, 7 pm, and 8 pm at least 1/2 teaspoon. This seems to work well in curing both Parkinson and PSP. But it must be done for a month or more. People often take like for every hour for 12 hours in desperation which actually work even better. There are other antivirals such as zinc EDTA or zinc gluconate or zinc acetate and lithium 5 mg taken in evening that seems to work also. Apparently as you get older the more likely you get these as a result of modern diets from cooking as a result lysine dont get in the body as lysine are easy to get glycation or denature from heat hence we get these diseases. If not cured maybe absorption issues from vitamin A deficiencies or lack of digestive enzyme from B6 deficiencies.

Lysine has no known side effects as it is considered essential amino acids. When I mean cured there were no signs of symptoms of PSP or Parkinsons Disease. Since I treated cases of this is few and all are cured I have no proof that it will work in other countries where diets are different and not enough people being treated as it is illegal to treat people. Also I give you the major remedies in practice other supplements were used but to keep things simple this is most important. Diets play important part of treatment but most earthclinic reader know that such as avoiding sweets, honey, fried foods, use of vegetable oils, ice cream, etc.

How much lysine is in 1/2 tsp? So it should be taken every hour for how long? 24. hrs a day? You were unclear. Thanks Sheila.

Has someone found out how much (mg or g) are in each teaspoon of the Lysine? My Mother has PSP and I want to stop this ASAP as she is degrading rapidly.

My husband has been diagnosed with PSP (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) at the age of 48. I searched remedies for it here and found that Ted recommended Lysine. My question is, is L-Lysine the same as Lysine? I can't find Lysine online, only L-lysine. I should mention that I am looking for it in a powdered form, not capsules, as Ted instructs to take 1/2 teaspoon every hour for 12 hours. If I have to buy capsules, I will, but thought it might be simpler to get it in powdered form for ease of use. If there is any other resources/remedies or feedback that you could offer we would be very grateful! Thank you!


Just wanted to ask you a quick question regarding the treatment for psp. Did you try it on your husband and did it work for him?

M in M

L-lysine is available in capsule & powder form and is very affordable from Swanson vitamins by mail.

Dear Ted,

I emailed you several days ago and have not heard back yet. Please excuse my impatience but my wife has just been diagnosed with PSP and it has been very devastating news.

Please, let us know a little more about you and also about your PSP cures.

Thank you.

EC: Dear Allan,

So sorry but Ted had a stroke in 2015 and is unable to correspond at this time.

Dear Allan, it is great that you are supporting your wife's health. Please see earlier in this thread, you will see extensive advice from Ted. He believed the PSP is viral in nature, and the frequent dosing of lysine he recommended is for kick-starting the immune system. The zinc he recommended are also for the immune system. If you consider other immune boosters they are vitamin c, I would use a wholefood c, natural d3. Another antiviral is lugols Iodine. The zinc EDTA he particularly mentions makes me think chelating heavy metals from the body is of importance in this scenario, other chelation agents are chlorella, parsley and cilantro. I have to add when you are attacking pathogens they will release toxins as they die, some bitter herbs like dandelion, milk thistle should be used to support the liver through this. Rather than give a list of oils and their toxins to avoid, I will just say cook in cold pressed coconut oil or grass fed lard. Eliminate sugar, which feeds virus, and do not replace with artificial (toxin filled) sweetener. Add fresh green juices and organic herbal teas to clean diet. Avoiding wheat (inflammatory) until benefits are seen would be wise, as puts undue stress on immune system.

Best to you on this journey.

Hello I just came upon this site in trying to find out about PSP. I was recently diagnosed with it.. My question to you is did the lysine work for your family member? Thanks so much for any advice you can provide.
