Mindful Pause: Rewire Your Brain
It’s estimated that 95% of our behavior runs on autopilot—something I call “fast brain.” That’s because neural networks underlie all of our habits, reducing our millions of sensory inputs per second into manageable shortcuts so we can function in this crazy world. These default brain signals are like signaling superhighways, so efficient that they often cause us to relapse into old behaviors before we remember what we meant to do instead.

On May 25, 2022 the World Parkinson’s Congress Research Spotlight had a webinar entitled “Stem cells for treating PD- Hope or Hype?”
Here’s a link to the You Tube presentation, and also a short (less comprehensive) essay on the topic Click here.
In preclinical studies, NE3107 was found to lessen inflammation within the nervous system and ease insulin resistance, slowing 
neurodegeneration and improving nerve function
. In a primate model of Parkinson's, NE3107 in combination with levodopa led to a greater improvement in motor control than either therapy alone.   
For dozens of years, we've been searching for a bio market for Parkinson's. A blood test or something else to objectively confirm diagnosis. And today - there's promising news in early stages of a blood test for PD. Click here for details
