Treating and healing Huntington’s Disease with ordinary amino acids is the basis or Orthomolecular Medicine. Large doses of naturally found proteins called amino acids can repair the imbalance in the brain and repair its malfunction. These amino acids are affordable and are used in therapeutic doses much larger than those levels normally found in food. The concept of orthomolecular medicine is based upon the use of very large doses of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or botanical extracts for the cellular repair and enhancement of normal brain activities.
Huntington’s Disease has several symptoms which may improve with orthomolecular medicine. The problems associated with Huntington’s include mood disorders, depression, personality changes, clumsiness, dementia, involuntary muscle movements, can be treated with large therapeutic doses of GABA, glutamate, lysine, valine, leucine, theanine, taurine, and alanine. This patient should not take arginine and should avoid foods high in arginine including nuts and chocolate. Valine is extremely important in Huntington’s disease and low levels of valine cause problems the myelin sheath over the nerve. Valine supplements in large therapeutic doses can help Huntington’s disease, MS, ALS, myasthenia gravis, and diabetic neuropathy. Valine deficiency can cause degenerative neurological conditions and slows nerve impulses.
Amino acid therapy can be taken orally or though IV therapy. This therapy will not cure the patient, but it can delay the progression and slow the neuron death rate. This will slow the progression of brain decline. Treat this disease very aggressive with very large amounts of the needed amino acids and use many additional botanical extracts for brain symptoms.
There is a very good botanical for the motor impairment for Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s disease. This botanical impacts the acetylcholine receptors. Alpha Lipoic acid can help the impaired nerve impulse symptom of this disease.
This patient should try German digestive enzymes and probiotics for an extended period to evaluate their success in a treatment protocol. This patient should eat a diet high in essential fatty acids like salmon, olive oil and avocados. This person should eat cold water fish at least three times per week. A diet high in the flavonoids found in berries,lemons, grapefruit, onions, leeks, garlic, oranges, apricots, peaches, and limes will protect the brain. The anti-aging supplements of alpha lipoic acid and organic wheat grass tablets or capsules are very beneficial for this person.
There is another supplement that is neither amino acid, vitamin, mineral or herb that Quantum Orthomolecular Medicine would use to attempt to repair the damaged cellular RNA that occurred from Huntington’s Disease.
DIETARY CHANGES FOR THIS DISEASE SHOULD INCLUDE RESTRICTION OF SODIUM AND INCREASING POTASSIUM. This patient should not take diuretics. Diuretics could accelerate the progression of this disease.
