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.
