My doctor says I’m on the Parkinsonism spectrum

Recommended Posts

My doctor says I’m on the Parkinsonism spectrum.  The shaking in my hands started about a year or two ago (sometimes my who left side)- especially with stress. I drag my left foot too. I also have been experiencing a stiff neck, regidness, my expression gets stuck at times (staring a little too long), occasionally lose control of something in my hands and have some sleep disruptions too. I feel physically weak at times and struggle when exercising but I’m pushing myself.

do folks have any tips to try to keep it from getting worse, naturally is preferable over meds. I also have an enlarged liver and colon ulcers I’m healing from plus an inflamed sinus but my mri thankfully showed no tumors or strokes.

I’m a little scared reading where the disease can go but I read a few stories of recovery using natural methods and acupuncture.

these forums look great!

CWBuddah,

Sorry to be blunt but there currently is no cure for Parkinson’s. It progresses slowly in each person at different rates. It normally takes many years before you become disabled from the disease. The only thing known to slow the progression is a vigorous exercise program. The best option to combat the symptoms is to take the prescriptions your doctor gives you when your symptoms begin to disrupt your life. It’s extremely difficult to manage with natural ingredients.

I'm back to my usual method of medicating naturally with medical marijuana. I currently live in a state where marijuana is not yet legal, but am moving to Florida in 3 months. I DO have have some first hand experience when living in Arizona though.

I personally see mmj as the only non chemical solution with no adverse side affects. Do your thorough research and make choices that benefit you.
