Unique, Innovative, Affordable Stem Cell Regeneration Technology

Retired Australian Naturopath and parkinson’s sufferer, Ian Ridgeway will be explaining an unusual and unique therapy that regenerates stem cells using skin patches. When applied to the skin, they use the body’s own heat to stimulate certain salts and sugars in nano particle size to reflect very specific light frequencies which then stimulates functions in cells. This is a form of phototherapy, or photobiomodulation. His latest patches stimulates an enzyme called Copper Peptide which activates our dormant stem cells. By the time you reach the age of 60yrs old, 60 – 90% of your stem cells are dormant. Inventor and founder and CEO of the company who sell them has put the technology into a small, affordable easy to use patch that you just place on your skin! David has around 80 patents on the technology and a similar amount of clinical studies using them. He even has worked out a way you can pay for and even make make money sharing with others.

Ian, who was was diagnosed with Parkinsons in 2019, reports that, So far says he sleeps far better and, can walk without a stick in his “on” times, have far more energy now able to work in his garden and orchard most of the day and his wife has more energy after they both have been using the patches for about 4 weeks of use.

Caregiver Burnout

Caregiver stress can arise when a person is so focused on the needs of the person being cared for that the person’s own physical and emotional health are neglected.

Signs of Caregiver Stress:

  1. Depression
  2. Withdrawal
  3. Anxiety
  4. Anger
  5. Difficulty Concentrating
  6. Changes in Eating Habits
  7. Insomnia
  8. Exhaustion
  9. Drinking or Smoking

Even if you love your care recipient, you may start yelling at them more or have difficulty controlling your temper with other people as your stress levels rise.

Update from Chris Hageseth MD

Robert and I have recorded interviews three times in the past:

  1. September 2016: Five years no medications. Parkinson’s improving. How I had gone for 5 years without meds and was doing well using exercise and yoga
  2. January 2017: Wholistic (or holistic) how different PWPs approach their treatment.
  3. October 2018: Shifting the Parkinson’s disease mindset.
  • This is my fourth appearance on the show today, and I still hold to my beliefs.  
  1. EXERCISE. EXERCISE, EXERCISE. I cannot exercise as hard as I did before. Gradually I had to walk more and jog less. Could only 3 – 4 miles.
  2. More convinced than ever that MINDSET/ATTITUDE is the key, PARKINSON’S IS A CHALLENGE, NOT A CURSE.  When I was formally diagnosed, I was 70 years old. Life expectancy for me was 84.1. Well, now I’m 82.4. In a year and a half, I will have reached my life expectancy.
  3. YOGA remains critical.
  4. WAIT UNTIL you really must take Levodopa. Levodopa induced dyskinesia (LID) is a real deal and can be disabling. Google it on YouTube. 
  • Let’s look at my life since we last met, year by year.

2018 – I shot a video titled So High So Low for the “I HAD A DREAM PROJECT” where I hiked a three mile walk trail and climbed a thousand feet. 

Link: https://www.ihadadreamproject.com/i-had-a-dream-project-videos 

That year I also went to Uganda to demonstrate the practices I used to manage so long without meds. (Robert, this is quite a tale, plus I have pictures.)

  • 2019 – After directing the local Parkinson’s support group, I resigned so new blood could take over.

BUT: New symptoms emerged that I didn’t know about:

  1. Anomia: a language specific disturbance arising after brain damage whose main symptom is the inability of retrieving known words. But it’s not dementia!
  2. Pseudo Bulbar Affect Crying or laughing excessively upon feeling any deep feeling.
  3. Dysphagia: difficulty or discomfort in swallowing as a symptom of disease. It starts out with mucus as postnasal drip. Get to an OT!
  4. Oily, flakey skin
  5. Sleep disturbances. Fall into deep sleep in the middle of the day. And then don’t sleep well at night.
  6. Pain in bed at night. Interfered with sleep.
  • 2020 – It was a remarkable and horrific year. PANDEMIC!

No more yoga classes! No gym with weightlifting. Social interaction approached zero. 

  • 2021 – Then, a condition worse than Parkinson’s emerged: Major Depression.

March 2021 – Fell and shattered right knee – 16 days in hospital.

July 2021 – Fell and broke my right hip.

August – Severe depression, I became suicidal.

September – Chose to have a course of electro-convulsive therapy (ECT)

October- It worked, and my PD improved a lot.

The falls were due to the antidepressant I was taking may increase fall for people with Parkinsons.

LESSON: Make sure you MD goes through all meds in case a med might make falling more likely

My story with Depression

Family history is strong.

Parkinson’s did not cause my suicidal depression, genetics and environment did.  Antidepressant medication failed to work and led to my falls!

2022 – I returned to my new normal. And that’s where I am today. I just have more symptoms and feel weaker.

I followed up with PWPs who I have advised in the past.

It became clear to me: I want to coach people with PD. 


Teach PWPs how to become a “Bad Ass with PD.” 

No more withdrawal and depression.

Robert, I want to come back with a program I have just developed to make being a person with PD and their caregiver have a better relationship.

Research on the Gut-Brain Connection with Parkinson’s

Martha Carlin brings us up to date on the latest Parkinson’s Microbiome findings and research and help connect the dots to our environment and increasingly processed and toxic food systems with idea on how to build a healthy microbiome to improve the symptoms of Parkinson’s.  She will discuss environmental toxins, diet/nutrition, stress management and exercise as ways to impact the course of your disease and how to build your own health timeline to understand what may be impacting the course of your illness and how to change the trajectory.

In this interview, Dr. Amy Yasko will discuss how the Yasko Protocol can be applied to those with neurological discorders, with a focus on Parkinson’s disease. The protocol emphasizes a data driven approach by using the results of non-invasive at-home test kits to help guide individuals on how to best support their unique system with the use of natural supplementation.
