Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the way the body moves. Normally, brain cells produce a chemical called dopamine that sends signals to the brain and helps to control movement.

Parkinson’s develops when the dopamine-producing brain cells die and the brain doesn’t receive enough dopamine to help regulate movement.

What causes Parkinson’s disease?

Certain genetic mutations have been known to cause Parkinson’s, but these changes are uncommon except when the disease occurs in families. Some of the complications that can occur with Parkinson’s include thinking difficulties, swallowing issues, sleeping problems, urinary incontinence, depression and emotional changes.

Most people notice a slight shaking of the hands or fingers initially, though this can also affect the arms and legs. Other primary symptoms include stiff muscles, slow movement (bradykinesia), and problems with balance or walking. Additional signs include writing changes, speech changes, loss of automatic movements (i.e., blinking, smiling, or swinging arms while walking), and rigid muscles.

The symptoms

Parkinson’s symptoms vary from person to person, and earlier signs may go unnoticed.

Often, only one side of the body is affected, but over time changes are noticeable on both sides of the body. Some of the signs and symptoms may include:


Usually shaking begins in the hand, fingers, or limb, and it occurs only on one side of the body. Tremors usually occur when the patient is at rest, stopping while the patient performs an activity. One characteristic movement of this disease is known as pill-rolling, which is when the thumb and index finger makes circular movements.

Slower movement

Many people with Parkinson’s have what is known as a shuffling gait, and they move very slowly from place to place. Because of the slower movement, a person may experience more difficulty performing daily tasks or getting out of a chair. Normal activities may become more time-consuming.

Speech changes

Speaking issues may occur from the lack of dopamine that is released in the brain. Patients may notice that they slur their words, become monotone, speak slower or faster, and hesitate before speaking. Some people have no voice inflection with Parkinson’s disease.

Impaired unconscious movements

In Parkinson’s disease, patients may have difficulty performing movements that are usually unconscious, such as swinging the arms, smiling, blinking, or moving their hands when talking. These changes are characteristic of reduced dopamine levels.

Poor posture

Parkinson’s disease can cause a person to appear bent over when walking, and balance may become an issue with the onset of this disease.

Stiff muscles

Muscle rigidity is a common factor in Parkinson’s, and it can occur in any part of the body. This stiffness can limit a person’s range of motion and lead to pain.

Risk factors for multiple sclerosis

There are certain risk factors that can raise the chances of developing MS. Multiple sclerosis tends to emerge among people aged 20 to 40. In addition, women are twice as likely as men to develop the condition.

If there is a family history of the disease, patients have a one to three percent chance of developing it, and Caucasian people of European descent are at a higher risk for the disease. Infections such as Epstein Barr may also raise the risk of a multiple sclerosis diagnosis.

Our treatment approach The Back to Wellness Program for Parkinson’s Disease

Dr. Anju Mathur’s holistic functional approach to multiple sclerosis treatment is specifically designed to find and treat the symptoms of the disease using her advanced “Back to Wellness Program.” As a multiple sclerosis doctor, she specializes in assisting patients with dietary changes and therapies that are essential to any degree of recovery from MS. She also makes recommendations regarding the correct nutritional supplements for the condition.

With her “Back to Wellness Program,” Dr. Mathur uses the appropriate IV therapies to help patients relieve their symptoms.

She also promotes overall lifestyle changes, performs specialized food allergy testing, and recommends environmental toxicity testing for heavy metals and mold. For MS patients, she often performs phospholipid exchange therapy, which may detoxify the body at a cellular level and cleanse the cells of systemic toxins to improve overall organ function. From there, chelation therapy can help to detoxify the body, which may improve immune system function and organ health.

Dr. Anju Mathur’s “Back to Wellness Program” incorporates these therapies and others if necessary to help patients regain optimal levels of health.

Covid19 and Your Immune System – A special message from Our Founder, Dr. Anju Mathur

Update March, 22nd:

We remain open to provide crucial services to all our patients and we are welcoming new patients.

Our most important goal is to remain healthy and maintain or build a strong immune system. In an effort to do so, we researched and have found a special test to analyze the overall state of health of your immune system.

A healthy immune system is the only thing that will either keep you from getting Covid19 or if you do contract it, keep the symptoms as mild as possible and the recovery as quick as possible. Because of this, we want to provide the opportunity for you to come in and have the overall health of your immune system tested.

If you are interested in this new blood test to find out what the overall state of your immune system is like, you should contact us right away and make an appointment.

We have negotiated some very special pricing on this test and are including your test and report of findings consultation with Dr. Anju Mathur along with her recommendations to maintain your overall immune health for only $199.

Our doctor has also prepared a special message for you:

Update March, 16th:

In recent weeks we have all seen the news about the Coronavirus and even worse, we have seen blatantly threatening news reports, and our friends and family scared out of their wits.

I urge you not to panic. If you are not sure what to do, contact us and we will help you.

Coronavirus is real, but for healthy people it is not a death sentence. The mortality rate is only relatively high in immune compromised people or with other medical issues. Per Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, “Viruses are NOT what kill & harm us (trillions of them in & around us) - rather the over-reaction of a weak & dysfunctional immune system caused by “underlying pre-existing conditions””… “CDCgov can bring CoronaVirus to its knees fast & stop deaths of seniors & immunocompromised by AT LEAST EQUAL emphasis- NOW - on specific foods & supplements to STRENGTHEN our Immune Systems.”

The best and right thing to do is to build up your immune system to be more resistant. In addition to high dose vitamin C, major autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet blood irradiation intravenous therapy, we are putting together our anti-viral supplement package for you. Call us for details.

Until then, we recommend you use very good hygiene practices:

  1. Wash your hands for 40 seconds with soap and hot water.
  2. Wear a mask if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, or have mucus. (Change mask every day).
  3. Wipe down your phone and doorknobs.
  4. Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  5. Use chemical-free anti-bacterial sprays and wipes (you can use essential oils, apple cider vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide)

Also, I want to share a wonderful anti-viral tea recipe:

Anti Viral TEA Recipe by Dr Mathur


  1. Fresh Grated Ginger-3 Tablespoons
  2. black whole kernels peppercorns- 20-30 pieces
  3. Cinnamon Stick- 1
  4. Black Cloves- 5-8.

Place all of the above ingredients in 3 cups of water and then boil for 20-30 minutes until the water turns black. Then strain it and drink it with some coconut or Almond milk and palm sugar or stevia.

Remember, these symptoms are treatable. You do not have to freak out. Be smart, keep your immune system healthy.

If you do contract the virus, let us know. Don’t panic, we are here for you.

Find facts instead of hysteria here.

John Hopkins reports 70,000 people have recovered worldwide.


Highest percentage of deaths are from immunocompromised patients and patients over 80 years old.
