My husband and I "attended " the all day webinar. It was excellent. Researchers believe that the path to a cure is in finding a way of preventing the protein from clustering. In PD this protein clusters in the stomach and travels throughout the body causing PD. I feel that we need to focus on helping with the symptoms and leave the trials on the clustering to the researchers as there is no known food that can prevent this from happening. We can share the things we notice with any food item that helps or hinders the symptoms.eg coconut oil. We need to press for the cure and that takes patience ...more patience can we have sometimes.
