Macuna Pruiriens Long Term

Hi,

Was diagnosed a couple of years ago, I’m 48 and decided not to start on the meds. However I have given Macuna Pruriens a try and I’ve been impressed with the results, my shoulder pain and stiffness have gone, my tremor, although minor, has greatly improved.

This raises a couple of questions for me.

  1. Macuna Pruriens have natural Levodopa in them, does this mean I’ll get the same effect of long term medical Levodopa, I’m thinking about the uncontrolled movements, body ticks and jerks etc.

  2. Some of the early medications caused heart problems, could this be the case with natural Macuna Pruriens.

Thanks for any responses.
