I have been suffering from PD for last four years (Started at the age 50). Currently I am on Apo_Pramipexold 3x1mg and Azilect 1x1mg. Tremor is under control and can walk easily but the problem I am facing now is that when I wake up its very difficult to get out of bed. I tried Acupuncture, Physiotherapy, Massage therapy but situation is going to worsen day by day.
Any suggestion of exercise or home remedy may be welcomed
My hunch is that movement will help the most right now – any movement be it dance, walking, swimming, weight lifting, forced exercise – you name it. Perhaps your physiotherapist might have some great recommendations on exercise that might help you in particular.
I received a call yesterday from a women who was diagnosed about the same time as you. She tells me she is doing great. No one would ever know she had Parkinsons given her symptoms are not evident to anyone. How does she do it? She explains – exercise! The more the better.
My initial reaction is to suggest that you begin to move your body as often as possible – every day. Most of the therapies you have explored require passive participation on your part. Why not become more active?
What else might I recommend? The therapies you have considered so far represent a very small number of the natural and safe therapies you can consider in addition to the medications. I have now documented 44 therapies that have given people currently experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s relief in one form or another. I discuss these many therapies in my book, Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease.
Parkinsons Recovery is sponsoring a Summit March 7th. Why not join us? You will hear directly from people stories about what they are doing to recover.
