Dr. Bob was a MD internal medicine, orthomolecular doctor, MD psychiatrist, chiropractor, and healer 65 years.  He was a diabetic who lived to 108 years with only 1 side effect 2 years before he passed away.  Dr. Bob practiced a system of medicine called orthomolecular medicine.  It is a system of medicine that uses mainly natural substances that are non-toxic and safe in wide range of doses.  It uses mainly herbs and minerals/vitamins.

Dr. Bob was a healer for 7 decades.  He made the observation that in Parkinson’s Disease the legs do not get tremors as much as the arms.  He said the legs have bigger muscles that are in sustained contraction (when a muscle is in a stationary posture position), which increases the blood flow.  He said, the bigger muscles and increased blood flow were the reasons the legs did not get tremors as much as the arms.  The increased nutrients supply from higher blood volume and increased strength of muscles helps resist muscle tremors.  Stronger muscles can contract and relax longer and better then weaker muscles.  The capacity to relax muscles can help resist tremors.  

Thus there are two observations about Dr. Bob’s remarks.  One is increasing blood flow may be one way to help decrease motor symptoms in Parkinson’s.  A second observation is stronger muscles may help in Parkinson’s.  There is a system of exercise for sustained contractions called “static contractions” invented by Little and Sisco. You can find their books, from Barnes and Noble on the Internet.  The scientific name for static contraction is “sustained contraction”.  This method can gain large amounts of muscle, in short periods of time.  The workouts can last as little as 5-10 minutes.  By discovering a system of exercise that increases blood flow to the muscles rapidly, rapid muscle gain is possible.  The forms of exercise are posture positions, with no movement.  You only hold the positions 6 seconds!  Thus 10-12 exercises involve about 1 minute of lifting!  This helps keep strain to a minimum.  Also by not involving range-of-motion, stress is further decreased.  Consult with your doctor before beginning any system of exercise.

In conclusion, Dr. Bob advised increasing blood flow and increasing the muscular strength of someone with Parkinson’s Disease, could help decrease motor symptoms.  You can read about increasing circulation in the heart section and anti-aging of the brain section of this web site.  Good luck.

Note – In order for these ideas to be successful, you must use supplements of the highest quality. Dr. Bob often said, "almost all supplement companies produce poor quality." You can consider the product page of this web site. Almost all the products met Dr. Bob’s approval. Since he passed away we have attempted to keep the same high standards.
