Av tried it but am stil early stages and all it did was make me sleep and eat everything I could get my hands on with a bit of paranoia thrown in but am not as far on as that man in video yet !!! Scary. Stuff
Oils pretty expensive is it not well the stuff I got was
Just ordered the Hemp seed oil capsules...100 in the pack for £7.99 inc. postage. Thought that was quite reasonable. Anything's worth a try, with this wretched condition!
Also supplementing dosage of manufactured Levodopa with Mucuna Pruriens (natural Levodopa), in between, to keep manufactured Levodopa to a minimum. Taking 3 X 125mg. Madopar and 3 X MP a day........so far, so good.
I'm determined to manage my own meds. in a responsible way, but inform my GP and PD nurse about what I'm doing. If it works, they don't seem to mind. After all, we know our own body better than anyone else and until a cure is found I feel I owe it to myself to try and beat this thing. IT will not win.
Twinks if you peruse any good supermarket aisle the oils are in you'll find 'hemp' oil far cheaper and other oils that may be beneficial that may be worth a try or at least an addition to your dietry and vitamin needs.
Thanks Sea Angler and Gus for your information. I particularly wanted to try the cannabis oil, but will bear the others in mind. I'm sorry you got no benefit from the Mucuna, Gus. I don't suffer with Dyskinesia, just Bradykinesia and shoulder pain, which the Mucuna seems to help. Just goes to show how different we all are! Interesting what you say about the summer months though. I've been diagnosed for over 4 years now, so nowhere near as long as you, but you sound to be doing very well.
Keeping fit and eating healthily make a difference too. And I try to have a positive attitude and do things I enjoy. Timing of meds. and when you eat food before or after, is essential as well.
All the best to you both.
