The cause of Parkinson's disease is largely unknown, but there are factors like genetic, toxins, head trauma, and drugs that have been identified.
Head trauma is reported far more frequently by Parkinson's patients than non-sufferers of Parkinson's disease. A study found that people who experienced head injury are four times more likely to develop Parkinson's disease that those who have not.
Drugs also can be a cause of Parkinson's disease. Drugs typically used to treat schizophrenia or psychosis such as antipsychotics have been found to cause Parkinson's.
Finally, a cause of Parkinson's disease not commonly thought of is toxins in the environment. Toxins from pesticides accumulated by a person who plays golf frequently, for instance, and pesticides in foods and GMO products can be a culprit. Heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum and other metals, can also be a cause of Parkinson's disease. When these pesticides or metals are found on the cell membrane that is primarily made up of
fatty acids, they become disruptive to the cell membrane function thereby inhibiting these cells from functioning properly.
Oral and IV lipid therapy helps detoxify and clean these toxins from the cell
membrane. There is new hope for the treatment for Parkinson's disease. Certain supplements and dietary modifications as well as intravenous therapy helps remove toxins off the cell wall thereby relieving symptoms of Parkinson's disease for many patients.
