Neuro@Mayr: Parkinson’s starts in the gut

The latest neuroscientific findings prove what Mayr physicians have long suspected: degenerative nervous system diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis, originate in the gut.

The regenerating neurointestinal effect of Modern Mayr Medicine, combined with physiotherapy, can lead to long-term improvements in mobility and coordination. Coaching sessions teach you coping strategies for use in everyday life, while Feldenkrais® method sessions allow new movement patterns to be explored and learned. Additional deep-tissue massages are relaxing, enhance mobility and improve sleep.

An update by Dr. Peter Gartner, Medical Director at Park Igls:
Park Igls has had many positive experiences with Parkinson’s patients who underwent intestinal cleansing in line with Modern Mayr Medicine. The Neuro@Mayr module now offers targeted support that includes physiotherapy, Feldenkrais®, deep-tissue massage and one-to-one neuropsychological coaching, is that correct?

Dr. Gartner: Yes, Modern Mayr Medicine’s regenerative effect on the neuro-intestinal combined with targeted physiotherapeutic treatment, neuropsychological coaching, deep tissue massages and Feldenkrais® improves flexibility and coordination, teaches new ways of moving and offers strategies for making day-to-day life easier.

At what stage of Parkinson’s can Neuro@Mayr improve symptoms? And when does it cease to be helpful?

Dr. Gartner: Sustained improvement can only be expected in the early stages. Unfortunately, improvement is unlikely for advanced forms of neurodegenerative diseases.

Can Neuro@Mayr and intestinal cleansing in general also prevent degenerative diseases of the nervous system?

Dr. Gartner: Based on current scientific studies, I can only say: absolutely!

Is there a test to determine the likelihood of developing Parkinson’s disease?

Dr. Gartner: A number of symptoms may suggest the beginnings of Parkinson’s disease. These include constipation, olfactory disorders, sleep disorders, inner agitation and, of course, the classic neurological changes in posture, movement, hand-writing and voice. Ultimately, a neurologist would need to be consulted for a clear diagnosis.

What can Parkinson’s patients do to help relieve their symptoms?

Dr. Gartner: There are numerous tips and tricks, depending on whether the focus of the symptoms lies in the motor, vegetative or psychological area. Our therapists can provide more information. Also, there are many self-help groups and organisations that can be useful, including www.parkinsons.org.uk and www.michaeljfox.org.
