Pharmaceutical drugs may cause Parkinson's Disease!

"People with Parkinson's disease often display the typical symptoms of tremor and sudden involuntary movements - but scientists are now beginning to wonder if drugs are the cause".

This is taken from the September edition of 'What Doctor's Don't Tell You', (source, Proc Natl Acad Sci USA, 2010; 107: 13159-64).

And the drug in question is Levodopa, whose major long-term 'side-effect' is dyskinesia, the medical term for jerky and unpredictable movements.

          "Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have recently discovered mechanisms in the brain (of rats) that cause dyskinesia, but it may be caused by either Parkinson's disease or using drugs."

So, after my recent blog on drugs causing dementia, the connection between disease and Big Pharma drugs is slowly but surely being revealed. And for more information about drugs causing disease, go to

Conventional Medicine and creation of illness

Moreover, this is yet another drug that has been found to cause the very condition it is intended to treat. Could it be that Conventional Medicine, and Big Pharma, are inadvertently coming up with the concept that disease can be treated with drugs that cause the same symptoms as the disease.

In other words, they are beginning to stumble on the fact that 'like cures like', which is, of course, the primary principle of homeopathy. In another 200 years, they might begin to stumble on the second principle of homeopath, the minimum, or infinitesimal dose. It won't be until they do so that they will realise that it is dangerous to use substances in toxic quantities!

It is perhaps fortunate, then, that people can move straight to homeopathy - which is already based on these insights.
