Providing resources and ideas for therapies and medical developments for Parkinson's disease:
PdCure.org seeks to provide an information portal for patients with Parkinson's disease, care givers and medical professionals to share and instigate treatments and cure development for this neurologically degenerative disease. Neurologists treating Parkinson's patients have limited time to evaluate one's condition and thus prescribe drugs to alleviate symptoms but do not necessarily have time to investigate root causes or to educate the patient about their condition and their full suite of options. By treating and relieving the symptoms and ignoring the root causes, Parkinson's disease progresses and the patient's health continues to decline. Current state-of-the-art treatments can be personalized to a patient's genetic predispositions so that optimum outcomes can be engineered (doctors typically don't have time for this). This website covers genetics and personal tailoring. Rarely do doctors try and determine the root causes of "idiopathic" (non-genetic) Parkinson's or to test a patient to find them. Tests for specific genetic mutations or the presence of neurotoxins should be part of any Parkinson's diagnosis, but they are not. This website seeks to help those with Parkinson's investigate their own version of this ailment and devise personal, potential treatments. This site recognizes the importance of substantiating statements and claims with references and does so often.
