: Everyone is probably way ahead of me, but the NPF website (www,parkinsons.org)has fantastic forum by Dr. Lieberman for any questions we parkts might have about pd. Dr. Lieberman is a highly qualified neurologist who specializes in Parkinsons and is one of the few specialists who is willing to take the time to answer our questions. It is well worth your time to sign up. He did point out that this wasn't his "day job" and it does take a lot of time to respond to all of the questions. Bruce
(re: one of my earlier posts) I still haven't posed the teeth and gums question I had to Dr. L. Dr. Pahwa told me that he wasn't aware of any research in this direction, but that several of his younger patients had the same complaint.
Also Betty H told me the following in a post to my post:
"Also, in regard to the message on the board on 9/13, titled, New Parkinson's Research by a Dr. Wirtanan, check out Dr. Liebman's response to that, on 9/14 . Interesting.
Now I haven't been able to find this response, so if you or Betty H. can post the site URL, I'd sure appreciate it!
I missed my follow-up dental appt. this a.m. but had decided to try some supplements and essential oils for a couple of months and see what happens. I talked to my "oil guru" and she had the same problems. After receiving the same ambivalent advice from her dentist, tried oils and supplements and is now free of pain and bleeding gums - no invasive procedures - and it's been 11 months! (You'd think I'd lose weight when EVERYthing hurts my teeth!)
