I had no idea what Huntington’s disease was until one of my TikTok videos went viral and many people asked me if I knew the cure for it, which I did not. But after much research, I have found research as well as anecdotal data in regards to ameliorating this condition.
What is Huntington’s Disease?
The experts claim Huntington’s disease is a genetic disease that’s passed from parent to child. It attacks the brain, causing unsteady and uncontrollable movements (chorea) in the hands, feet, and face. Symptoms progressively get worse over time. They eventually affect walking, talking, and swallowing. It’s also common to have changes in emotions and thought processes, mood swings, and memory problems.
Who does Huntington’s disease (HD) affect?
Huntington’s disease typically affects people of European descent. But the main factor is whether you have a parent with Huntington’s disease, and If you do, you have a 50% chance of also having the disease.
What I discovered
I searched through medical journals and PubMed, and even anecdotal data in regards to Huntington’s disease, but I found nothing. So I stopped searching and put it out into the spirit world and allowed the universe to lead me to the knowledge I sought. Approximately a month later, I was at a friend’s store shopping for some jewelry, and the owner’s mother asked me if I knew anything about Lions mane. I told her I knew it was known to stimulate the regeneration of nerves. She proceeded to tell me one of her customers developed encephalitis(Brain inflammation) and was told to take Lions mane by a Holistic physician and it totally cured them of the condition.
So something inside of me told me to research Lion’s mane with Huntington’s disease, and this is what I found.
News Medical Lifestyles “Active compound in Lion’s Mane mushroom improves nerve growth and memory” states –
Neurotrophins are a family of proteins associated with the survival, development, functioning, and maintenance of neurons. These proteins aid dendritic branching by regulating binding specificity for tropomyosin receptor kinase (Trk) and p75 neurotrophin receptors.
The mammalian neurotrophin family consists of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), nerve growth factor (NGF), neurotrophin 4/5 (NT4/5), and neurotrophin 3 (NT3). BDNF is highly expressed in the adult central nervous system (CNS) among the different neurotrophins. Moreover, BDNF plays a vital role in the proper functioning of neurons in the hippocampus and cortex region of the brain, both of which are associated with memory acquisition and learning.
An impairment in the BDNF pathway is associated with several diseases, including schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, Rett syndrome, and Huntington’s disease. As a result, neurotrophins are often targeted for treating neurological and neurodegenerative disorders.
I also found that choline deficiency is linked to the development of Huntington’s Disease. According to Dr. Joel Wallach’s book Epigenetics The Death of the Genetic Theory“, he states –
Choline is a major structural component of larger molecules; as a
component of phosphatidylcholine (lecithin), it is essential to the structure
of all cell membranes, plasma lipoproteins, and pulmonary surfactants; in
the central nervous system, choline functions as a structural component of
sphingomyelin and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
Choline deficiency can result in:
Alzheimer’s disease, dementia
There is also a PubMed article “Huntington’s disease: clinical and chemical effects of choline administration” that states –
Ten patients with Huntington’s disease took Ch orally (8 to 20 gm per day) after the extent of their disabilities had been documented by clinical examination, movies, and combined electromyogram-accelerometer recordings. Choline levels in blood and cerebrospinal fluid increased markedly during treatment with Ch, affirming that oral Ch administration increases the amount of ACh precursor delivered to the brain. Although some of the patients exhibited transient improvement in speech, balance, and gait, treatment with Ch failed to bring about consistent or lasting improvement in any of the subjects.

Being this is primarily a European condition, the first thing that comes to mind is vitamin D3. Contrary to what people know vitamin D3 is actually converted to a hormone within the liver and kidneys and regulates genetic expression. Scientists have found that vitamin D3’s active form affects thousands of genes, turning off harmful genes and turning on healthy benevolent genes, while also regulating the immune system. So I would definitely add at least 5000 IU’s of vitamin D3 to your diet, as well as bioavailable magnesium. Magnesium is needed for the liver, kidneys, and vitamin D cell receptors to convert vitamin d3 into its active hormonal form.
Lastly, I would also detox the liver with milk thistle, as all medicine must be processed by the liver before it is released into the bloodstream. An unhealthy liver such as fatty, cirrhosis, or inflammation will not optimally process the medicine.
