Not all types of coconut oil sold in the market today are effective as an antibacterial product.
The one I recommend is unheated, organic, extra-virgin coconut oil that has its enzymes
and vitamins active and alive especially vitamin E. The product is called Coco De Creme.
(6) Raw organically grown garlic:
Garlic is well known to be the ultimate herb for fighting candida albicans. Some call it the ultimate antibacterial,
anti fungal and anti viral medicinal food. Garlic is best used fresh. Raw organic garlic destroys bacteria and
boosts immune function.
Garlic is high in sulfur, which is one of the most important minerals needed by your body to do its detoxification
To maximize garlic’s superlative antibacterial, anti viral, and anti parasitical activity, use it in the following way.
Before going to sleep at night, finely chop 2 cloves of garlic. Put the chopped garlic on a tablespoon and
swallow it with water. Do not chew it. There will be absolutely no garlic odor on your breath if you do not chew
Your first bowel movement in the morning will have a garlic odor. This is a wonderful sign that this super food
was active in your GI tract while you were sleeping and regenerating. Garlic tirelessly patrols your intestinal
tract all night long as a “toxic-garbage cop” helping to neutralize, dismantle, and eliminate bacteria, viruses,
parasites and carcinogens.
Build up to 3 cloves every night. Do not eat raw garlic more than 4 weeks in a row.
(7) Tea from herbs that are supportive in repairing the digestive tract:
The following sweet herbs can be used daily as support for the intestinal tract. In the initial stages of this
healing process, I recommend that you use this tea once or twice a day for the first three months.
The ingredients for the tea are anise, caraway and fennel seeds plus ginger. Take a heaping teaspoon of
each of the different seeds and add water to make a cup of tea. Slice two or three thin pieces of organic fresh
ginger. Bring to a boil and continue to boil for 5 minutes. This tea is very calming to the stomach, especially if
you are going through any uncomfortable detoxification symptoms. It reduces gas, nausea and bloating.
Ginger is known to be a very strong antibacterial and anti fungal agent.

Probiotics and Enzymes
You may have heard the phrase, “If the gut is not healthy, neither is the brain”. Fully half of the six stages of
nutrition (namely digestion, absorption, and elimination) occur in the digestive tract. What affects the digestive
system impacts the immune system, the liver, and the brain and nervous system as well.
Depression, bad dreams, sleep disturbances, personality changes, fear and accelerated dementia-whether
these symptoms are disease symptoms or a response to the decreased amounts of neurons in the brain that
produce the neurotransmitter dopamine-affect many Parkinson’s patients.
Most people fail to realize that the gut is quite literally our second brain, and actually has the ability to
significantly influence our mind, mood and behavior. This is why it is very important to address gut health in
order to slow down Parkinson’s disease progression.
Friendly bacteria and your brain health:
Researchers keep finding that depression, fear and a variety of mood related problems may appear to be
linked to an imbalance of bacteria in the gut!
In Dr. Mercola’s article “Beware bacteria growing in your gut can influence your behavior”, he says that in a
study published last month in Neurogastroenterology & Motility, mice that lack gut bacteria were found to behave
differently from normal mice, engaging in what would be referred to as "high-risk behavior." This changed
behavior was accompanied by neurochemical changes in the mouse brain.
According to the authors of the study, microbiota (your gut flora) may play a role in the communication between
your gut and your brain, and: "Acquisition of intestinal microbiota in the immediate postnatal period has a
defining impact on the development and function of the gastrointestinal, immune, neuroendocrine and metabolic
systems. For example, the presence of gut microbiota regulates the set point for hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal
(HPA) axis activity."
The neurotransmitter serotonin activates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis by stimulating certain serotonin
receptors in the brain. An interesting fact is that the greatest concentration of serotonin, which is involved in
mood control, depression and behavior changes, is found in the intestines, not the brain! This may explain why
many Parkinson’s patients have symptoms of constipation, allergies, candidiosis, bloating, ringing in the ears,
fungus on toe nails....etc., leading to foggy headedness and depression.
So as Dr. Mercola said in his article, it actually makes perfect sense to nourish the gut flora with friendly
bacteria for optimal serotonin function as it can have a profound impact on one’s mood, psychological health,
Following are a list of supplements, foods and herbs that can help you regain GI integrity of the digestive tract
and as a result reduce and even eliminate depression, bad dreams, sleep disturbances, personality changes,
fear and accelerated dementia.
(1) Acidophilus, Bifidus, and Other Probiotics:
Research surrounding the use of probiotics in the prevention and treatment of Parkinson’s is extremely enticing.
Probiotics are food supplements comprised of billions of live microbial organisms that have numerous beneficial
effects on human health. “The gastrointestinal tract is a huge body of nervous tissue,” says Stephen Holt, MD,
author of Natural Ways to Digestive Health (M. Evans, 2000). The enteric nervous system lines the esophagus,
stomach, small intestine, and the colon. Scientists consider it a single entity, even referring to it as the body’s
From the books I have read on probiotics, I have learned that a proven super-strain of probiotics is the strain
DDS-1, in the acidophilus group. It has been widely researched and its abilities documented by scientists such
as Dr. Khem Shahani at the University of Nebraska. It has powerful anti-carcinogenic properties and produces
effective natural antibiotic substances which can deactivate eleven known disease causing bacteria.
There are 200 different strains of L. acidophilus, some 13 of which have quite strong antibiotic qualities but DDS-
1 was shown by Dr. Shahani and his colleagues to be the most effective against pathogens. (Chaitow, p. 184).
I recommend that you ensure adequate intake of friendly bacteria on a daily basis. If you are in the first stages
of working towards reducing the progression of PD, you need to supplement with large amounts of probiotics
(acidophilus, bifidus and other types of friendly bacteria). Start with small amounts of acidophilus and bifidus
either on an empty stomach (best) or with your meals and increase as you go along.
I highly recommend the following three probiotic products:
• DDS-1 Acidophilus. This product has Lactobacillus acidophilus and wild-crafted blue green algae. The
minerals in this type of blue green algae “turbocharge” the friendly bacteria, making them multiply faster than
any other Lactobacillus product currently available in the market.
• Bifidobacterium bifidum micro-blended with wild-crafted blue green algae.
• Full-spectrum probiotics made with the following ingredients:
lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus casei,
Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salivarius, Streptococcus faecium, Streptococcus thermophilus, Aceola
and Rose Hips blend, wild-crafted Blue Green Algae, Jerusalem Artichoke, Lipase, Amylase, Protease, Cellulase.
Sodium plays a vital role in digestion. Sodium or salt is necessary for balancing fluids and pH in the intestinal
tract. I’m talking here about organic sodium or salt as found in green and sea vegetables and not commercial
salt (sodium chloride) or sea salt. Both commercial salt and sea salt are inorganic (ionic) minerals. The human
body does not possess any enzymes strong enough to break the ionic bonds found in inorganic minerals.

Unless you are going to eat a 100% raw food diet, you need to supplement with plant-based enzymes any time
you eat foods that are cooked or processed, or packaged. By supplementing the body’s natural secretions,
enzymes will help digest protein, carbohydrates, and fats in the intestines. By doing this, you address the
causes of intestinal distress and help reduce intestinal gas, constipation, bloating and flatulence.
Enzymes function better with minerals as cofactors and can be very effective in the digestion of
cooked or processed meals.
The enzyme supplement I recommend has the following ingredients:
Amylase, protease, lipase, cellulase, lactase, fennel, ginger, cayenne and wild-crafted blue green
Food enzymes can be isolated from pineapples, papayas, figs, pancreas and a
mushroom called Aspergillus oryzae. Except for the Aspergillus oryzae, all other
isolated enzymes (fruits and pancreatic enzymes) have a very narrow range of
activity with regard to intestinal pH.
The best type of enzymes for digestive purposes are enzymes made from Aspergillus orzyae (plant-based
enzymes). These enzymes can function and become active in a very wide intestinal pH range - from 2 to 12.
Better yet, if the plant-base enzymes are micro-blended with a mineral rich whole food such as blue green
algae, it dramatically assists good digestion in the stomach. Specifically, wild-crafted blue green algae, since it
is very high in mineral content.
(4) High quality dietary fiber:
As you increase your intake of fruits and vegetables, you will be getting high quality dietary fiber. Research
has shown the health benefits of a diet high in fiber. The benefits include regularity, lower cholesterol, and
stabilized blood sugar levels.
To maintain intestinal hygiene, you need about 35 to 40 grams of different fiber sources everyday (e.g., bran,
cellulose, lignin, pectin, etc.), all found in different organically grown, ripe seasonal fruits, whole grains, and
colorful vegetables. Eating these foods provides the added fiber that will bulk up in your intestines, gently
sweeping the colon clean of extra estrogen, hormones, toxins, waste debris of cellular metabolism and soak up
excess cholesterol. Do not try to “mega-dose” on one type of fiber, like oat bran, as you need each (all) of the
different basic fibers for proper bowel cleansing.
Do make a mental note that the following foods in particular are known to add to the healthy condition of your
intestine, specifically because of their fiber content:
Flax seed: Besides being a well-rounded source of both the insoluble and soluble fibers, flax contains another
component called lignans. Lignans have anticancer, antibacterial, anti fungal, and anti-viral properties.
Lignans have been isolated and studied at the University of Toronto. It was found that lignans, in the presence
of friendly bacteria in the human intestine, form very potent anticancer substances, particularly against the
hormone-driven cancers such as breast, colon, prostate, uterine and ovarian (Finnegan, p.45).
Organic flax seed is, by far, the richest source of the valuable plant lignin. Other sources of lignin are rye and
Prunes: Few foods contain both insoluble and soluble fibers and prunes just happen to be
one of these foods. Consume it either raw or dried as a healthy snack. Three pieces of
dried prunes will give you 4.2 grams of fiber.
Mangos: From a personal experience, I find fresh mangos to help tremendously with
colon health in general.
(5) Unheated, Organic Coconut Oil:
Infections from the growth of candida albicans is common among Parkinson’s patients. Candida albicans is a
type of yeast-like fungus that can cause weakening of the immune system and infection known as candidiasis.
In addition, in most neurological health challenges like Parkinson’s disease, the production
indigestion. Low stomach acid can be addressed with sufficient daily intake of organic
sodium (pp. 153-157).
Consuming sea vegetables (i.e., kelp, blue green algae) or juicing green vegetables daily
offers the body organic minerals required to help digestion. Sufficient sodium enables the
body to manufacture watery bicarbonates used to neutralize over acid stomach contents.
Foods can then be well digested.
One of the best and quick ways of making sure you are getting sufficient sodium
in your body is to juice celery and zucchini every day. These two vegetables
give the body a natural diuretic effect and aid in the elimination of carbon
dioxide from the body. The sodium content will neutralize acid ash residue of
acidic foods in the body.
This is why unheated, organic coconut oil is a great product for fighting infections. When
coconut oil is consumed, the body transforms its unique fatty acids into powerful anti
microbial powerhouses capable of defeating some of the most notorious disease-causing
microorganisms. Even the super germs are vulnerable to these lifesaving coconut
derivatives. Coconut oil is, in essence, a natural anti bacterial, anti viral and anti fungal
agent (Fife, pp.57-76).
