Also wondering about a new study showing that the gut may be involved with Parkinson's. Does anyone know about this? And, are probiotics any help in staving off Parkinson's? I've read that they can't recommend a probiotic yet,
but I also have IBS-- Apparently gut problems often precede Parkinson's. And I must take VSL #3 a heavy duty probiotic for the IBS. FYI I also have
constipation that alternates with diarrhea and diverticulosis.

Anyone know about VSL #3? (I'll see my gastro doc soon to go over this but in meantime I'd like input.)

in 2009 and again in 2016 I had constipation/diarrhea problems that went on for a long time.
If u are blocked down there it interrupts effectiveness of PD meds, along with all the discomfort,and increasing chance of hemrhoids.

Both times I eventually took:

one kills bad bacteria in the stomach, the other in the colon

any doctor should be able to prescribe
show the doctor these med names and they may agree to try
solved my problem both times
