Question: I am 73, and my hand shakes. My doctor says it’s just “old age.” Is there something you could suggest to prevent or lessen the shaking?
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
“Old age” is a cop-out phrase that too many physicians use. At your age, such symptoms could be a sign of early Parkinson’s.
A supplement called N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) replaces a substance called glutathione that is depleted early in Parkinson’s. The dose is 500 to 750 mg after each meal.
Avoid all excitotoxin food additives, and avoid all of the other things that can cause depression, as they also worsen Parkinson’s.
Exercise is essential — especially brisk walking.
Magnesium will protect the brain from excitotoxins, and it reduces brain inflammation. Curcumin, quercetin, luteolin, and resveratrol also protect the brain from this condition. Coconut oil will also add some protection.
