I was diagnosed in 2008 at age 65 with onset Parkinson's. I consider myself case manager and aggressively manage. I consider my case mild at this stage confined to left side. Fortunately right handed. I have movement disorder Neurologist for med refills, most provide little help. I have holistic MD who has been great help (insurance does not cover). She discovered mutated gene which cause heavy levels of mercury from old silver teeth fillings. It took two years of weekly chelation treatments to reduce to safe levels. I have personal trainer who incorporates motor & non motor training. I still play tennis 3-4 days weekly. Rigorous exercise is key. I manage my own case very aggressively and maintain pretty normal lifestyle. I also work periodically with Parkinson's nutritionist's. I had stem cell treatments in San Diego which reduced my meds 40%. I also add 1 1/5 tablespoons of Syncolein to hot "caffeinated" tea. Can purchase at Amazon. Many have reversal as it contains mannitol which passes through blood barrier. Just ordered CBD ADDit 300mg. After 8 years I believe my aggressive proactive approach has allowed me to confine to left side only and live active normal lifestyle. Vigorous daily exercise is key.
