Is It Parkinson’s Disease?

What is causing my hands to shake? (Could it be Parkinson’s Disease)

Tremors, shaking hands, loss of manual dexterity, is this the beginning of Parkinson’s disease? Even if it is not, the presence of such symptoms can be disturbing to quality of life. Dining out becomes a nerve-racking event as forks and spoons tremble in your hands. The more important an objective becomes, the more nervous you get and the more your hands shake.

This is sometimes labeled as “idiopathic tremor.” The label is intended to give comfort. In reality, it’s a meaningless label that cannot distinguish between a condition that will be limited to a tremor, or a prelude to full-blown Parkinson’s. There are no drugs that can help reverse this condition. Drugs utilized to help minimize the symptom (shaky hands) may temporarily decrease the tremor, but also have significant side effects.

Finding Answers: What is the Cause?

The cause of a tremor is unknown. For that matter, the cause of Parkinson’s is also unknown. Thus far there has not been a gene identified that causes Parkinson’s disease, or a tremor. These conditions are widely believed to be a consequence of environmental factors, especially accumulated toxins.

Lead is a pure toxin that is known to damage brain cells, and neurons. The effect is insidious as it can slowly lead to symptoms and corrode health over years, even decades.

Heavy Metal Testing: Know Which Toxins are in Your Body

If you are experiencing tremors that are not otherwise treatable, it behooves you to get heavy-metal testing performed to find out how much lead has accumulated in your body. Blood testing is not adequate. Lead travels through the blood and then accumulates in the bone and other connective tissue. There it builds up year over year slowly corroding and damaging neurons.

Obtaining a “provocative” heavy-metal test is simple, and does not require a prescription. It involves getting an infusion of calcium EDTA. This substance can pull lead out of its hiding places in the bone and in the tissue where it can be identified in the a urine specimen. Identifying the toxin is the first step in getting rid of it. With knowledge in hand, a treatment plan can be implemented.

I have had cases of patients that have been treated with chelation therapy and had complete resolution of their tremors. At the very least, reduction of toxic lead will diminish the toxic risk to the brain cells and the nerves, and potentially prevent progression more serious consequences.

It may start as a tremor, but it can lead to full-blown Parkinson’s, and even dementia. Take action early! Passively waiting to see what comes next is a foolish gambit when known culprits can be identified and remedied.
