Question: What's the difference between Parkinson’s disease and Parkinsonism?
 
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
 
Parkinson’s disease is a spontaneously developing neurological disorder. Parkinsonism is any neurological disorder that has features of Parkinson’s, but also has other neurological problems.
 
For example, Parkinsonism followed the 1917 flu pandemic. Exposure to high levels of manganese can also cause Parkinsonism, which includes an assortment of other neurological symptoms.
 
To relieve symptoms, dopamine can be increased by taking the amino acid tyrosine, which should be taken on an empty stomach to allow absorption. Some foods are also high in dopamine, such as almonds, avocados, bananas, lima beans, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds.
