Dr. Christopher B. Forsyth and his team have recently demonstrated significant gut permeability, more commonly referred to as “leaky gut” in Parkinson’s patients. Their research has further revealed that this increase in gut leakiness enhances inflammation as well as the production of a unique protein—alpha-synuclein—both of which are characteristic of this disease.
While doctors and researchers alike continue to mention the overuse of antibiotics as a cause, they still miss the simple fact that any use will create this imbalance.
A 5 to 7-day course of antibiotics destroys 100trillion cells in the gut, which leads to the release of cellular toxins in amounts that are 2.6 million times more than what is necessary to cause brain inflammation.
After that, any inflammation in the body will continue to fan the fires of brain inflammation.
