The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

The New Age Cure! (or NOT!)

Just heard about using colloidal gold to treat syphilis in the brain from a nurse who practiced in WWII. So I researched it and ran smack dab into Edgar Cayce!  They had special diets and sent low voltage currents through the body (with a Cayce “wet cell”).

Bottomline is that you got a little improvement, BUT they left out the PLACEBO EFFECT! Apparently Parkie’s are susceptible to a 30% Placebo effect, in otherwords you THINK it’s gonna’ work and it does (for 30% of us or 30% of the time). But the effects are temporary, snake oil would work and so do copper bracelets.
