  • Hi Kam

    Thank you very much for your message.

    My post has indeed triggered some interest from similarly minded people who consider non-pharmaceutical options as critical to our well-being. To be clear, I am not anti pharmaceutical drugs at all, but would like to delay taking them as much as possible and, if I have to take them, make sure that…[Read more]

  • Hi Carolyn,

    It is interesting to look at acupuncture as a one of at least three approaches to meridians in traditional Chinese medicine (I’m still relatively new to this!). The recent events have made it more difficult to utilise acupuncture. Similarly, acupressure is something I would like to try but it’s a tiny bit off-limits right now.  The…[Read more]

  • Hi Mary Beth,

    It is a very complex topic but an interesting one…

    To the extent that holistic means integrated, then some multi pronged approaches fall in that category.  On a slightly more esoteric note, has anyone ever heard about the law of attraction?

    It is the idea that our thoughts can influence outcomes eg make us sick as well as help…[Read more]

    • Hey Michel,

      Thank you for your thoughts. It’s funny that you should bring up the law of attraction. One of my good friends has been thoroughly researching this idea. I’m a long time meditator, myself. And I’ve found that what I focus my energy on grows. So it makes sense that this could have both negative and positive effects. What type of…[Read more]

  • Hi Joel,

    Thank you for your response, encouragements and suggestions.  You are perfectly right to mention inflammation and I am approaching this issue via supplements (turmeric, omega 3) and generally by reducing my stress levels via several types of meditation (inc. qigong, autogenics ets) as adrenaline is the enemy.
    There is a Chinese herb…[Read more]

    • Thank you for the recommendations, Michel. I know my Dad has used turmeric and omega 3. I’m not sure how his response has been so far. But I love the idea that he (and you) are exploring alternatives. Have you had any luck with any of this yet?

  • Hi Amy.
    Thank you very much for your post.  I am really encouraged by your experience.
    I have now come across the idea of fasting on several occasions and will definitely look into this.
    in the meantime my diet is gluten, sugar, dairy, red meat and alcohol free. I consume proteins from poultry and eat oily fish… I miss a good beer or wine…[Read more]

    • Michel- I’ve also been told that a Keto diet has proven to have positive impacts on neurological health. Have you ever dabbled in that world?

  • Thank you very much Gail, this is very encouraging. I believe that, although science may one day find the silver bullet, in the meantime a systematic approach can be succcesful. Your experience definitely seems to support that view.  Thanks again for your input.

  • Thank you all for taking the time to respond to my post, I very much appreciate it.

  • Hi everyone,

    I am newly diagnosed and maybe very naive or optimistic but has anyone on this forum ever tried and succeeded to manage PD symptoms with only natural products, diet, exercise and meditation but without relying on pharmaceutical drugs? Thank you. Michel

    • Hey Michel –

      My Dad (diagnosed in 2013) has certainly dabbled in holistic approaches. I know he tried CBD oil for some of the muscular stiffness. And he has shifted his diet. I’m no Doctor, but I’ve read that a Keto diet can have a positive impact on neurological health. I don’t think you’re wrong to want to explore natural products. Are you…[Read more]
