Natural Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease

Since 2004 I have been documenting natural therapies for Parkinson’s disease that offer relief from Parkinson’s symptoms. These discoveries have inspired the following conclusions:

  • Dozens of natural therapies are effective in reversing Parkinson’s symptoms
  • No therapy helps everyone.

This week I administered  a survey asking members of my global audience to report what natural therapies offer relief from  their symptoms. Results re-confirmed my conclusions:

  • There are a surprising number of natural therapies that offer relief.
  • No therapy helps everyone.
  • Everyone discovers a unique set of therapies that work for them.

One respondent from Australia reported they had not tried any natural therapies. Is this also the case for you?

May the following summary of responses serve as an inspiration to try one or more of the natural therapies reported in this Parkinsons Recovery Survey.

Responses to the Parkinsons Recovery September 2019 survey are reported next. Informational resources that relate to the therapies reported to have been helpful are also included in this post.

Functional Medicine: A New Paradigm in Medicine

Dr. Jennifer Kessman MD discusses how to heal from disease. Functional Medicine has been around for a number of years and began with Dr. Jeffery Bland’s motivation to look at medicine in a different way. Now the field of Functional
Medicine is ever expanding and a center at the Cleveland Clinic has opened its doors for care. It is becoming more widely accepted and parts of functional medicine have been integrated into a wide variety of disciplines in medicine.

Here is a list of questions she answered during my interview with her:

1. What is Functional Medicine?
2. How did you come to get involved?
3. What are the root causes of disease?
4. So, if inflammation is the basis of disease how does functional medicine help with inflammation?
5. Tell me about your experience with Environmental Medicine?
6. Dr. Dale Bredesen and others have found ways to reverse early brain dysfunction and reverse dementia. How are they doing this?
7. Do you think this can apply to Parkinson’s?
8. The immune system is a big actor in most diseases we know- how can we calm our immune system?
9. What has been your experience with environmental impact of electromagnetic fields and brain dysfunction?
10. What is the influence of stress on disease?

Natural Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease

When it comes to finding natural treatments for Parkinson’s disease, most people get very frustrated. This frustration comes not from being unable to identify treatments that can facilitate healing the neurological symptoms, but from the challenge of having to sort through the many excellent natural therapies for Parkinson’s disease that seem to be helping some if not many people.

I say stuff the frustration in the closet. There are ways to find the answers you need now to jump start your recovery. You just have to take charge and launch your own program of recovery.
