What other therapies do you recommend aside from the food aspect?
The thrust of my research has been to cast a wide net to identify any and all therapies that help persons who currently experience the symptoms of Parkinsons. After five years of a focused search, I am happy to report that I have succeeded in identifying dozens and dozens of natural, safe and nonintrusive therapies that people with Parkinson’s symptoms tell me help them immensely. To my surprise, I have not found very many therapies that do not have a positive impact to some degree.
The nature of your question is tied to several underlying assumptions. First, you assume that Parkinsons disease is caused by one and only one imbalance in the body. I disagree. There are a multitude of factors that create neurological symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. For many people, more than one factor is present. The particular therapies that can help will be driven by the conditions that are causing the neurological symptoms. There are no easy solutions of fixes.
Many potential therapies exist that will and do help depending on the circumstances that are present. This was the motivating impetus to sponsor the Parkinsons Recovery Summit last week in Vancouver, Washington which was free.
Twelve different therapies were represented. Therapists volunteered their time to give free treatments and consultations to all who attended. It was a historic event for all persons currently experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s.
Second, you assume that I have a list of therapies that people should pursue if they expect to get well. That is, you assume that I promote a program of recovery. I am well aware that some medical professionals offer a very specific protocol to treat the symptoms and that some of these programs are successful.
I am not a medical care professional. I am a researcher. As such, my job is to find the people who are figuring out solutions that are working for them and let others know about it.
I have just finished updating my book, Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease. The book offers a detailed description of the many therapies that are helping people who currently experience the symptoms of Parkinson’s. If I were to offer a full and complete answer to your question I would now be writing a post that is 330 pages long – which is the length of the 2011 edition of Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease.
Yes – there are many opportunities to get well. Seize the opportunities and you will begin to feel better day by day.
