Aunt Bean is doing something a bit different, and it is helping a lot. Now boosting thiamine( B1) by foods. I soak a brazil nut , 5 cashews, 5 almonds, 5 pistachio,
2 bitter apricot pits ( seeds that look like small almonds) , and a dried organic unsulfured apricot in filtered water overnight. Then rinse them well in the morning and eat them. I am taking my fava L-dopa tincture about once a day instead of 5 times a day (and less of a dose). My body is functioning better/ my mandolin playing is 100% improved.
Here is an article about an Italian Dr. treating PD with high doses of thiamine. http://easyhealthoptions.com/italian-doctor-curing-parkinsons-disease-with-thiamine/
I hope this information will help some of my brothers and sisters out there with PD….it has made a huge difference in my life since the first of February this year.
The gardens are looking good. We planted 3 black raspberry canes this morning, The favas are looking good. Time to weed, hill and mulch them. I call it “The bedding of the beans” ,a very special time for me for the last few years. I will have been using the L-dopa fava tincture now since October of 2009. So, they have been a big part of my life. Eat well, exercise, get out in the sun, and play!
God Bless you.
Love , Aunt Bean
