This completes my series on sorting out gut bacteria as part of a strategy to defeat Parkinsons. There is research to show the link between the composition of the bacteria (and viruses) in PWP and their PD. We want to try and measure it. We want to try and change it. My FMT transplant thread covers the final option for change, and poo pills may make that option sensibly affordable. But right here , right now, I can tackle my diet, and supplements to target this. I read a lot on here about how folk are dealing with PD, many a good bit further down the journey than me, and there is so much to try it is hard to isolate the microbiome management element for many.
I am in a fortunate position. I am not yet taking any medication, and focussed on the microbiome before I got too carried away with every supplement or natural remedy I was interested in. So, pretty much, I can look at my PD management as a strategy centered on gut bacteria management. I think with promising results (although very early days)
I will post a bit later how I started with PD and what I have done, and how I assess progress. But has anybody else tackled their poo, and if so, what have you done, and how well has it worked?
Time for the obligatory poo joke.
We can work this out - like the constipated mathematician, who worked it out with a pencil
