Dr. Scott’s Trick for Stopping Parkinson’s
I’ve been called “hard headed” a time or two in my life – and maybe you have been, too.
But, remember – those thick skulls we’re so proud of only help protect our brains from outside threats.
The fact is, our brains are constantly facing attacks that come from inside our bodies.
Now, breakthrough research is proving that one of those threats may be the key driver behind Parkinson’s disease.
That’s the bad news.
The good news? Once you know how to contain this threat, you may never have to worry about Parkinson’s again.
Like rats inside the castle, your brain can be destroyed by the tiniest of creatures: the bacteria in your gut.
To be fair, it is a bit more complicated than that…
Parkinson’s disease and other brain diseases may all have a common link in cells called “glial cells.”
Glial cells are part of the brain’s immune system and problems with glial cells have been linked to Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, and even depression.
But what is causing glial cells to destroy your brain?
No one would have guessed this even a few years ago, but scientists have discovered that it’s the bugs you in your gut.
It works like this: If you have a bad collection of gut bugs (scientists call these bugs your microbiome), then you have bad signals being sent to those glial cells – and that causes a slow destruction of the brain and problems like Parkinson’s.
If you have a healthy microbiome, then the glial cells support good brain health.
Your microbiota is no joke. Studies have shown the microbiota can affect mood and anxiety (in the short term) and diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s (in the longer term).
The message is simple: If you want to keep your brain healthy, keep your gut in check.
The best way out of the downward spiral (that everyone else’s brain around you is on) is to make sure you have a healthy microbiome.
Dr. Scott’s Pathway to a Healthy Microbiome (and Brain):
- Take a good quality probiotic
- Find other good bacteria in your life: yogurt, real sauerkraut, other fermented foods.
- Avoid fried or processed foods when you can.
- Load up on veggies and take daily fish oil to control inflammation.
I’ve got news for you — drug companies are never going to fix brain problems. The drugs they use for Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, (and even depression), are junk and will only make matters worse.
It really is up to you to take care of your brain. Follow my plan to get started today.
Health and Happiness,

It always puzzles me how anyone thinks we can spray toxic chemicals on our crops and NOT have them affect our health! Because despite what food manufacturers may claim, chemical residues from pesticides and herbicides show up on (and IN) the conventionally grown food we eat. And research makes it clear that these creepy chemicals...
I think you’ll agree that aging should come with some perks. And chief among them is FINALLY having the time to relax and enjoy the retirement you earned. But that’s awfully hard to do if you’re losing your eyesight due to macular degeneration. Instead, your golden years become tarnished by having to focus on learning...
How does that old saying go? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We all know it’s easier to STOP something from happening in the first place than to repair the damage after it’s happened. And with all of its complications, including shortening your lifespan, type 2 diabetes is well worth preventing!...
I’ve had patients make some pretty strange claims about their arthritis. Many folks swear they can “feel a storm coming” in their joints. And I’ve heard this one so often (and had them be spot-on about that storm) that I believe it’s true. Other patients claim their joint pain gets worse when eating tomatoes. And...
If you’re “of a certain age,” I bet you remember that iconic old slogan from the late 70s, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” It always springs to mind when I see a sharp person’s memory start to fade away. They soon become unable to make decisions for themselves. Eventually, they even have...
Dear Living Well Daily Reader, “Most of my family has been hit with COVID. We’re thinking it’s the latest variant. Are there any extra, new recommendations for protecting yourself against the variant? (Aside from washing your hands?) My husband and I have tested negative so far, but we want to be careful.” –Tammy from Lancaster,...
If you have diabetes, it’s almost certain that your conventional medical doctor put you on a blood sugar-lowering drug. And there’s ALSO a strong possibility that the drug makes you feel terrible. Common side effects include gas, bloating, upset stomach, kidney issues, and fatigue. Even worse, over time, these drugs become less effective. So even...
Okay, I’ll admit it. There have been times I’ve found it tough to maintain an optimistic outlook these last few years. And I’m not alone. Studies show that unhappiness and loneliness are on the rise. That’s TERRIBLE news for our health. Because when you combine the two, it can deliver a devastating blow to your...
It’s the nuttiest time of year. And I’m not just talking about the decorating, shopping, and holiday chaos… I’m literally talking about NUTS. Sure, we eat these tasty treats all year round. But when the holidays approach our nut consumption goes through the roof. We eat more nuts from October through December than any other...
Regular readers know I’m gaga for coffee. My favorite brew is downright delicious, of course. But even better, coffee is packed full of powerful phytochemicals that are natural antioxidants. In other words, coffee helps fight off the free radicals that play a role in heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and more. But I get asked a...
