I've read a few posts where people are delaying medication for as long as they can. That is my aim too, mainly because I see from my mum the effects that these drugs can have.
So far the symptoms I have are internal tremors, some rigidity and stiffness and a slightly dragging leg, and I find it harder to make expressions than before. These are all things I can live with while they're mild. But how practical will this be longer term? I know that's not a question anybody can answer really, but it's something that I ask myself.
What are some of the things people are doing to manage without medication?
So far I have tried taking coconut oil. I'm not good at remembering to take it every day but I did for a few weeks and my symptoms did seem to ease up. I'm going to take it more regularly now to check whether that was a coincidence or not.
I also go to see a chiropractor, and in the past that has really helped me a lot with stiffness and spasms.
And I practice tai chi and do some boxing at home. I find that they're good for relaxation and help the internal tremor.
I'm keen to build up a whole arsenal of non-medicinal 'remedies' that I can use, so I wonder if people would be able to post some other ideas here. If someone has already done something like this, then could you please post the link, as I don't want to duplicate information.
I know there's no cure, but I need things I can try to stave off the symptoms as best as I can.
What else do people recommend?
