Daily: We are exposed to toxic agents every moment. Maintaining good nutrition is critical, and i suggest a good whole foods based multivitamin/mineral as a start. A product called natural cellular defense is one of the best detox agents i've found, and I use it every day.
Dr. Bernard Seif

Body cleanse: If you mean detoxing your body, in Chinese medicine a mild detox is suggested at the change of seasons to prepare you for the next one. Please see your doctor before doing anything. Your blood work will let you both know if you liver is working well and detox would not be needed. Peace and good health.

Dr. Randy Burgett answered
General Practice 9 years experience
Yes: Parkinson disease is a degenerative disorder of the nervous system that affects cells in the brain associated with movement. Once the cells are lost they cannot be regenerated and you will see a decline in motor function. Medications, surgery and other management can provide relief and sometimes improve symptoms, but the cells cannot be replaced and the disease cannot be fully cured.
