The power of great nutrition.

Talk about having one’s eyes fully opened! Hopefully!

On the 16th I published a post under the title of The Power of Good Food.

It primarily featured a short video from the home page of Colin Potter’s Fight Parkinson’s website. That video explained how a strict regime of the right food and supported by supplements had made an incredible difference to his health, effectively putting his PD into remission.

Or in Colin’s words:

I am Colin Potter and I have a Parkinson’s diagnosis.

Only there’s one difference between me and virtually all other people with Parkinson’s

I no longer suffer from its symptoms. I don’t take conventional medications.
You’d hardly know I had Parkinson’s.
How is this possible?

I’m not a doctor, I’m just an ordinary bloke diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2011 who just didn’t like what he was being told by his doctors; that his condition was incurable and his health would go into permanent decline.
So, I started my own research, and found thousands of authoritative research studies that:

  • Showed that Parkinson’s mostly had its origins in our lifestyle and environment
  • Revealed the possible, specific causes behind Parkinson’s
  • Promoted the actions I could take to fix the problem
  • Allowed me to cease levodopa medication

I then made the necessary changes to my lifestyle and diet and here I am, two+ years later, healthy and recovered.

I know many of you will find it hard to dedicate a measurable amount of ‘viewing’ time to this post but that doesn’t stop me from recommending a subsequent video.

Namely, a longer (32 minutes) interview of Colin Potter that really explains his transformation

There’s even more to share with you but Jeannie and I have made a fundamental decision.  That is that before we go any further it is only right that we seek the views of a local nutritionist in nearby Grants Pass.

We need to be certain that the major changes that we are planning in terms of diet and supplement intake are supported by local, qualified persons.

We will share those findings with you very soon.

But it does cross my mind that the following should be included in this post.

We do not offer advice and nothing on any website, email or any other communication is intended to treat, diagnose, prevent or cure any disease. It is not a substitute for consulting your doctor. You should consult a doctor for diagnosis of conditions, before beginning any diet, exercise or supplementation or if you suspect you have any health issue. You should not stop medication without consulting your doctor.

  1. Well, if it worked for him, who’s to say it can’t work for Jeannie……? Worth a try Paul.


  2. Very wise that you both seek the advice of experts Paul, But sometimes you have to try alternatives especially when the medical profession are not really offering any. Now I swear by my acupuncture treatments yet only the other day I heard a Dr on the radio saying it was placebo medicine.. I beg to differ.. Unless you try it you will never know..


    1. Totally agree! Indeed, when one thinks of the history of acupuncture it is impossible to deny that it is a very valid process. A very quick search found: “Acupressure has been practiced as a healing art for at least 5,000 years. It is the third most popular method for treating pain and illness in the world. This complete health system has been documented for use in treating over 3000 conditions.” From

  3. I prefer a ketogenic diet and do best with it. My son and his wife are eating that way. My blood test numbers came back the best ever when I ate that way. We are a carb heavy society and most of our food is loaded with toxins. It has to make a difference in our health. Best wishes on this journey. I’m certain most doctors still want us eating the pyramid diet. 😦 Every social engagement I attend is also heavy on the carbs. I’m pretty much done going out.


    1. Not familiar with the ketogenic diet myself but if it’s working for you then that’s the measure. Still working on a way of making it easier to watch the Food Matters documentary in full over on FMTV. It’s chock full of great advice about the way we eat.

      1. It’s the same thing you man with Parkinson’s Disease was talking about. My son has been worried about Parkinson’s for years as his hand shake badly enough he could no longer do his normal work. He eats the same way, His “wife” has been very inventive with their cooking. She finds thousand of recipes on the internet and they try them. All without grains. Keep us posted on your search and results. I’m absent a bit more with my own heath challenges but try to catch up when I can. I liked the documentary “Food Matters” It really does.


      2. I have got quite an update on this subject of nutrition and the body to write up. May be a few days before I can get it all sorted out and ready for publication. But it will happen!
