My name is Steve Alten and I am a NY Times best-selling author of 16 thrillers, including MEG, a series about Megalodon, the 70 foot, 70,000 pound prehistoric Great White shark, set to be a major motion picture in theaters August 10, 2018. My goal is to be cured of Parkinson’s Disease (and introduce the cure to others) before it’s time to walk down the red carpet at the premiere.

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease ten years ago, at the age of 47. PD is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects the brain cells which produce dopamine. The lack of dopamine causes rigidity and sometimes maddening tremors, loss of balance and moments of being unable to move. The meds are a double-edged sword – the more you take, the more the brain needs – leading to some severe side-effects like the body contortions affecting Michael J. Fox. I managed to stay off the artificial dopamine (sinemet) for 7 years until my symptoms worsened to the point that I was bent over, walking into walls to stop myself. Finally, I started the meds... placing myself on a road that I knew might not end well.

And then three years ago God sent me an angel in the form of a brilliant bio-chemist who has spent the last 30+ years in his private labs isolating the natural healing properties in certain fruits and vegetables. Combining these molecular extracts, he was able to create a natural dopamine agonist with zero side-effects. Instead of being on 3-6 sinemet a day, I can function on 1 ½ sinemet and 6 doses of extract!

Now... the exciting news: Several months ago, my bio-chemist angel informed me he had made a potentially huge break-through, discovering a combination of two extracts that might actually CURE the Parkinsons.

The first extract (GC-Y) is designed to repair damage to the intestines so that dopamine found in food can be absorbed (in PD patients, absorption isn’t happening).

The second extract (GC-P) targets the dormant (far from dead) dopamine-producing brain cells. Both products are natural, with no side effects.

I received a two week supply of each product to test them out. It took a while, but gradually I noticed that my extract and sinemet lasted longer, and that at times I felt.... NORMAL!

Human trials for new drugs can take many years and millions of dollars; what is great about this treatment is that it is the molecular extracts found in food. The bio-chemist believes it may take 3 to 6 months on these new extracts to completely reverse the effects of Parkinson’s. And if and WHEN it works on me... there are millions of people this can help.

This is not like testing a new drug for cancer; with PD you are either able to function (on periods) or not (off periods). I was examined two months ago by my neurologist; if I am asymptomatic it is easy to prove. Unfortunately, at this time I can’t afford what I’d need to take... but as a best-selling author I can reward those generous souls kind enough to see this incredibly important test through to completion.

$60,000 pays for a 6 month supply of GC-Y (60 Gerber Baby Food-size jars, taken 1 per day), GC-P (30 jars, ½ a jar per day), and enough Parkinson’s extract to wean me off the sinemet (a necessary task to restore my damaged brain cells).
