Parkinson. New achievements through the use of Thiamine in addition to the old therapies

A regular dose of Thiamine in addition to the old therapies can grant an important benefit to patients suffering from Parkinson. This is the result of further studies conducted by Italian researchers that have been using Thiamine to block and fight the advancement of one of the most terrible neurodegenerative illnesses.

The news has been reported by the Chinese scientific magazine Neural Regeneration Research. A recent pubblication included a study by a pioneer among Italian neurologists, Antonio Costantini, from the clinic villa Immacolata di Soriano al Cimino near Viterbo, and Roberto Fancellu, from the hospital San Martino di Genova, on the use of high doses of thiamine in the cure for Parkinson.

In the article the two Italian doctors underline the continuous strides made by the patients cured with the administration of Thiamine after numerous trials that for years they have run in their clinics and hospitals.

Normally the Chinese magazine only publishes medical articles on payment. In the case of the interesting research of the two Italian neurologists, however, the studies of their experimentation has been published for free.

Ultima Edizione has once again spoken with doctor Costantini on the day after the pubblication, which follows the articles featured on the website of the National Center Biotechnology in the United States and the participation to various medical conferences among which those in Milan, Cagliari and Liegi.

Q: doctor Costantini, why is there so much interest around your cure for Parkinson?

Because the costs tied to the illness, left at the mercy of its evolution with the current treatments, are incredibly high. The costs of our therapy are very low and yield great results for the wellbeing of the patients. Thiamine stems the progression of the illness, so many patients will remain healthy and will no longer need pensions or subsidies. If you take in consideration the millions of people afflicted by Parkinson this allows to save a huge amount of money. More importantly, this allows the patients, given their good health, to return to a level of activeness and productivity.

Q: Is this one of the reasons for which the Chinese could be interested in this therapy?

This is one of the reasons. We foresee that in the future, by fighting Parkinson’s disease at its very start with the use of the Thiamine, it will cost 2-300 euro every year. Now, in Europe and America, sustaining the current treatments costs around 11-15 thousand euro each year.

Q: So the administration of the vitamin B1 to patients suffering from Parkinson is compatible with the other cures currently adepte by Italian hospitals?

Yes, it’s compatible with every therapy. Not just with the medicines used to fight Parkinson, but also with any other substance in the pharmaceutical handbook. It’s important to add that the old therapies do provide some degree of improvement. A fixed dose of Thiamine, in addition to the old therapies, provides even more positive results for the patients. If we deem the improvements to be insufficient we can alter both the old treatment and the dosage of Thiamine, in order to unburden patients from every symptom or provide a considerable improvement compared to the previous treatment.

Q: Given the delicacy of the matter, and to avoid giving false hopes to the ill, can you confirm, after five years of administrating massive doses of Thiamine, that this treatment truly benefits patients?

Yes. It’s confirmed. We even invite many patients to keep us updated with yearly phone calls because they no longer need rigid neurological control.

Q: Besides Thiamine, what other pharmaceuticals are needed to contrast the disease?

There’s the classic medicines, like levodopa, which causes no harm whatsoever to the patient on the long run. There are also other compounds that are normally used in Parkinson like the dopamine agonist and other stronger drugs that have recently been made available. I would like to precise, however, that these are all pharmaceuticals that simply stop the symptoms but are unable to stop the progression of the disease. Thiamine can stop it.

Q: Currently, are Italian hospitals equipped towards the cure for Parkinson?

They are very well equipped, but even if the patients are followed diligently by neurologists, the possibility of a successful treatment through the use of these drugs only is rather slim. The patients can’t always reach the results achieved with the Thiamine, which stops the progression of the disease and at the same time greatly alleviates the symptoms.

Q: How many patients are currently in therapy?

Over one thousand. We’re not counting anymore.
