Natural l-dopa - Velvet Bean
jojomo posted:
I have young onset pd at age 39 - I'm now 43 and have had remarkable results with taking the Velvet Bean supplements. I take 4 a day and I feel "giddy" and have that "good mood feeling"! I highly recommend it.

I can now button, zip, type, write & swing my arm 30% better!!

I'm sorry we all have pd. I pray for a cure daily!!

my brother has pd since 5 years and now he is not able to to button,brush or anything. please tell me what is this velvet bean supplement. thanks
worn1 replied to thevi's response:
the velvet bean is used as a natural source of L-DOPA. It is suppose to work faster than the chemical L-DOPA, It sounds as if your brother has not recieved any medical care. He needs to see a neurologist so he can get on the right regiment of medications. You want to see a neurologist who specializes in Parkinsons.
There are none so blind as those that will not see
thevi responded:
thank you so much for the info. my sincere prayers for all the PD patients.
please tell me where i can buy the velvet bean supplement.
take care
