Why is early treatment with L-dopa important?
with depletion of:
Parkinson's disease patients do not have enough dopamine in their brains. This causes the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. The only way for the brain to make enough dopamine is by taking L-dopa. In all Parkinson's disease patients a relative nutritional deficiency exists since • Norepinephrine high enough levels of the nutrient L-dopa can not be obtained from even an optimal diet. Treatment with L-dopa as soon as possible is important to keep brain function optimal and prevent brain deterioration from nutritional deficiencies. Drugs do nothing to increase the • Thiols (homocysteine, L-methionine, body's ability to make dopamine.

Management of L-dopa induced nausea, on/off effect, dyskinesias, long-term stability, and all of the relative nutritional deficiencies listed to the right, need to be skillfully and professionally managed. This is not a self-treatment disease. What are the expected outcomes of treatment?
Carbidopa depletes vitamin B6
For Parkinson's disease patients who are early in the course of the disease expectations These depletions represent relative should be complete restoration of function with few or no symptoms with a marked slowing nutritional deficiencies (RND) where in the progression of the disease. For patients who have had the diagnosis for several years, system nutrition based synthesis time, the disease, and drugs may have taken their toll.

What is telemedicine?
Study the illustration above. When only L-dopa is given it excludes Telemedicine is a formally recognized method for doctors (MD and DO) serotonin the making of serotonin. For over 50 years doctors have to provide medical care remotely. The University of Minnesota Duluth given their patients L-dopa while not recognizing or making any Medical School has 80% of the state of Minnesota geographically set up effort to correct the nutritionally driven collapse problems they were telemedicine. Insurance companies recognize telemedicine consults as creating. L-dopa depletes L-tyrosine, Thiols (homocysteine, glutathione, a valid form of medical care and most reimburse for telemedicine care S-adenosylmethionine, L-cysteine, cystathione, and L-methionine), as long as the patient is in a clinic while the consultant is remote.

These nutritionally driven depletions cause Parkinson's disease is usually not covered by insurance but is a valid option for self-pay to spiral out of control. The leading cause of Parkinson's disease is brain damage from toxins. This requires more dopamine to compensate for the damage and restore normal brain function.

Everyday that a Parkinson's patients live with improperly treated
nutritional deficiencies is another day the system deteriorates. While things might not seem to be too bad for the first year or two of standard medical care, the day will come where nutritionally driven forces spiral out of control into a world of symptoms worsening. This nutritional worsening is caused by the improper nutritional treatment, the disease, and the drugs. This approach is superior to any previous treatment in restoring optimal function and preventing deterioration of the disease. Patients should not be allowed to persist in a nutritional deficiency state for one day. Under the current approach to Parkinson's disease they are in nutritional deficiency for years. The earlier nutritional stabilization is performed the better the long-term disease outcomes will be. Ignoring the problem leads to system collapse. Many symptoms of nutritional collapse are wrongly diagnosed as deterioration from Parkinson's disease and not treated properly. Not just Parkinson's disease
