Multple Systems Atrophy (MSA)


What do know about Multiple Systems Atrophy MSA , which  is related  to Parkinson’s?



I have worked with several people who have MSA so I have a reasonable idea of the symptoms that are involved.

All in all, however, I must report that I do not find labels such as are given by diagnoses to be helpful or useful for recovery. They tend to be associated with negative thought forms and give energy to the symptoms which just feeds them.  I make this case in my recent book, Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease (

So, I personally never wrap labels around diagnoses. That is why I always refer to “the symptoms of Parkinson’s” rather than some amorphous concept of what other people refer to as Parkinson’s Disease.

Naturopath doctor Laurie Mischley agrees with me. She was my guest on my radio show today. She makes the same argument during the interview and in her new book, Natural Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease.

Symptoms are simply signals that something is out of balance which merits our attention – nothing more and nothing less. When we feed the symptoms with worry and fret, they can certainly become problematic.

The important question turns on what is feeding the symptoms in the first place.
