For men w/PD that use no Rx, just natural therapies

Hi, from the start of my departure from conventional prescriptions I have sought the answer to the portability problem, since the several natural substances my body needs to replace a few Rx tablets tend to be larger. They take up so much space in a shirt pocket. It is a portability problem as well as a personal appearance issue (bulging pocket). :) What is your answer? Please don't write aboout the fanny pack that is another personal appearance issue. :)

Man bags (Shoulder bags) are common in the UK or very small backpacks. I think the fashion came from Europe.


A pill tray available from Amazon works well for me. It's configured to handle a week's worth of 4 doses p/day so you can separate AM/MID/PM (or before/after meal doses). Grab 1 or 2 trays and lay out your supps for 1 or 2 weeks in advance. And, the BEST part is the portability factor - if you just want a day's worth of supps, you can pop out that particular day from the tray and slip it in your pocket (or fanny pack).

Actually am hoping to have somethiiiiiiiing not stigmatizing. Looking for an everyday masculine carry item that I can convert to a carrier for my therapeutic stuff. Have thought of a caddy for cigars for example or a case for an electronic device


Well after 3 weeks and still finding no neat, tucked away method to carry so much bulk supplement, I have decided to temporarily take a step back. I am now using natural sourced levodopa and supporting supplements (Silvestrov style) just when at home. If I must go out for any extended time, I am taking a slim flex-open medicine holder packed with a few 25/100 Sinemet tabs, 250 mg Vit C tabs and GABBA-plex capsules, all fitting neatly inside a shirt front pocket. Only other thing is to remember to take bottled water and off I go. It is not ideal for several reasons will do until I solve the supplement portability problem. Natural supplements definitely work a lot better but if you can't easily take it where you go without bulging pockets a person that cares about appearances has to have a backup plan. :)
