Wholistic Medicine – Essential for Understanding Parkinson's Disease

August 31, 2010

Parkinson’s Disease poses a formidable challenge to Science. It won’t “play nice” and sit quietly in the chair assigned to it by Modern Medicine. Like a youngster with a belly full of junk food, it not only won’t stay in its seat, it wanders around testing the seats of others.

PD simply will not accept a role that limits it to the Central Nervous System. It wants to sit with the Immune System and dip the pigtails of the cute Endocrine System into the ink well.  PD will not “do right.”

The problem is not with the disease, however, but with the somewhat arbitrary divisions drawn around the scientific turf.  If we are going to understand PD then we must look at the whole.
