The Hinz protocol is a scientifically based Amino Acid protocol. It uses a natural form of L-dopa which wipes out Parkinson’s symptoms and balances blood levels of amino acids with other neurotransmitters. Giving too much L-Dopa, whether it’s with pharmaceutical drugs like Sinemet or even a natural form will cause an imbalance of neurotransmitters and can cause symptoms like nausea and depression. You must carefully balance neurotransmitters with other amino acids like 5-HTP. You should not attempt this protocol on your own without medical supervision. It is a very specific process that requires skilled professional help and is available at our Parkinson’s Center.
