My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's just before Christmas so it's been 3 months of adjustment time. We're keen to consider alternatives to the prescribed medication as the prescribed medication doesn't offer a cure or delay of progression and has considerable side effects particularly after long term usage.
I'm interested in the writings of Janice Walton Hadlock (pdrecovery website) based on her training in acupuncture and oriental medicine. Her approach was based on 15 years of research into Parkinson's which is quite substantial and whilst she has retired from direct work, her writings make interesting reading. She feels it's possible to recover from Parkinson's either fully or partially although this view is a rather lone voice in the midst of array of sites describing Parkinson's as incurable and degenerative. It feels quite an isolating position to be considering a route without medication and I'd love to hear if anyone else is out there exploring alternatives.
All good wishes
