Restless Leg Syndrome Remedies (Evidence-Based)

Restless leg syndrome, also known as Willis-Ekbom Disease, is a nervous system condition that produces an uncontrollable and severe urge to move your legs. It tends to be a rather unpleasant sensation and is only relieved by moving one’s legs, however, this relief is usually temporary. It tends to affect people more at night and can result in sleeplessness due to discomfort. Typically, the conditions tend to worsen with age. There are, however, many things that can be done to manage this condition effectively.… Read More Restless Leg Syndrome Remedies (Evidence-Based)

Nutrition For The Brain (Evidence-Based)

When treating a condition, it is important to focus on nutrition in addition to the physiological irregularities manifesting in the disease and their symptomatic management. The body is literally a product of nutrition, and the brain is no exception. The most common brain disorders are characterized by neurodegeneration – the breakdown and damage of brain… Read More Nutrition For The Brain (Evidence-Based)

Natural Sources of L-Dopa & Carbidopa

Patients with Parkinson’s disease experience a severe lack of dopamine – a neurotransmitter. This is due to the reduction in endogenous production of dopamine in the substantia nigra – the part of the brain that contains an abundance of dopaminergic (dopamine-producing) neurons. With this said, L-dopa (the precursor to dopamine) becomes the foundation of treatment which is why drugs like Sinemet (which contains L-dopa) and Pramipexole (which activates dopamine receptors) are prescribed.… Read More Natural Sources of L-Dopa & Carbidopa

How To Reduce Spasticity

Often referred to as a feeling of “stiffness”, Spasticity is a condition in which muscles remain contracted for an extended period of time. It can range from a feeling of mild tightness of the muscles to painful muscle spasms that are uncontrollable. It can be painful or painless and may result in involuntary movements of the limbs. This can prevent muscles from being stretched which results in trouble with movement and possibly speech.… Read More How To Reduce Spasticity

Anxiety Disorder Natural Treatment

Anxiety itself is a regular emotion that we experience in response to stress. It manifests as fear and uneasiness which is usually accompanied by an increased sense of alertness along with physical symptoms such as a rapid heart rate, sweating, nausea, difficulty sleeping, and eventually fatigue. This can occur from simple everyday things like watching the news, trouble in relationships, public speaking, etc.… Read More Anxiety Disorder Natural Treatment

Reduce Tremors in Parkinson’s Disease

Tremor’s in Parkinson’s occur due to the deficiency of Dopamine – a neurotransmitter that is responsible for neuromuscular function, cognition, mood, attention and more. This occurs due to neurodegeneration. However, there are solutions beyond that of L-Dopa supplementation. In this video, I discuss a simple, research-proven solution. Tremors are one of the 3 characteristic Parkinson’s… Read More Reduce Tremors in Parkinson’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease – Natural Treatment (Evidence-Based)

With a wide range of clinically-proven natural options for treatment of neurodegenerative disorders, patients of Alzheimer’s disease can utilize various methods of reducing the severity and progression of this illness. We understand that Alzheimer’s disease is a condition in which the brain degenerates, leading to loss of memory and other cognitive/mental functions, but what doctors… Read More Alzheimer’s Disease – Natural Treatment (Evidence-Based)

Fibromyalgia – Effective Natural Treatment

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and tenderness. The exact cause of Fibromyalgia is currently unknown, however, several theories suggest that genetics, infections, and stress play a large role in its development. According to research, neurological changes such as pain receptor sensitivity and neurotransmitter imbalances may play a significant role in… Read More Fibromyalgia – Effective Natural Treatment

Headache Remedies (Evidence-Based)

Headaches are one of the most common complaints and symptoms. Almost all infections, nutritional deficiencies, and neurological conditions involve headaches in their symptomology. The most common causes of headaches are: -Stress & Tension -Congestion -Allergies -Alcohol (Hangover) -Infections -High Blood Pressure -Low Sodium -Low Blood Sugar -Eye Strain -Lack of sleep -Dehydration -Improper Sleeping Positions… Read More Headache Remedies (Evidence-Based)

GABA – Increase It Naturally

GABA – Gamma-aminobutyric acid, is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that literally calms down the central nervous system’s electrical activity. This assists in managing neuropathic pain, seizures and is particularly needed in conditions like multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, shingles and neuropathy. GABA is the main mechanism via which the drug Gabapentin, a powerful pain relieving drug, works. GABA… Read More GABA – Increase It Naturally

Serotonin – Increase It Naturally

Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter that has a wide range of neurological, psychological, cognitive, circulatory and gastrointestinal functions. It plays a vital role in neuro-chemical processes responsible for feelings of happiness and well-being. Serotonin is targeted in many pharmaceutical drugs for the purpose of treating depression, anxiety, vomiting, migraines, psychosis, etc. One of the main… Read More Serotonin – Increase It Naturally

Acetylcholine – Increase It Naturally

Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter which is considered key player in neuro-chemistry and the manner in which the central nervous system communicates with muscles. This neuro-transmitter is also responsible for a wide range of functions within the autonomic nervous system including both unconscious and involuntary movements. In terms of disease, this neurotransmitter tends to be reduced… Read More Acetylcholine – Increase It Naturally

Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 4)

The 4th part of MS treatment involves correcting Insulin resistance and countering the effects of stress. MS is characterized by an auto-immune reaction that involves the breakdown of Myelin (the insulation around neurons) via the process of neuro-inflammation. However, the fact that all MS patients tend to also have insulin resistance, gives us the clue… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 4)

Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 3)

In part 1 and part 2, I discussed methods of reducing neuro-inflammation in order to slow down disease progression, as well as a way to stimulate nerve growth and significantly enhance neurological health. These factors play an important role in triggering the process of healing, however, in order for the brain to completely heal, we… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 3)

Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 2)

In part 1,  I spoke about the importance of reducing/inhibiting neuro-inflammation, in order to slow down the progression of multiple sclerosis. By slowing down the progression, we give the brain time to heal and to start regenerating myelin, thus improving neuron health and reducing severity of symptoms. The second part of treatment involves assisting the… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 2)

Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 1)

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an auto-immune and neuro-degenerative condition in which the body’s own immune system attacks and destroys the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers by inducing neuro-inflammation. This protective sheath is called “Myelin”. Myelin is a fatty substance that insulates the axons of nerve cells, and protects it. As Myelin degrades, is causes… Read More Multiple Sclerosis – Natural Treatment (Part 1)
