A fascinating study funded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research looks at the microbiome (the population of bacteria in the human gut) in people who have Parkinson’s Disease. Lo’ and behold: research is showing a link between gut function and Parkinson’s Disease.
Who would’ve thought there could be a connection between your bowels and the degenerative, capricious symptoms of Parkinson’s?
Notice that the study found that gut dysfunction usually predated disease onset? “Nearly 80 percent of people with PD have constipation, and this condition often predates the motor symptoms of Parkinson’s by several years.”
In my own practice I also see that gut dysfunction (constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, bloating, etc.) not only accompanies but usually predates almost every autoimmune disease and/or chronic condition.
Fix the gut and often disease symptoms improve or even disappear no matter what the disease.
