I'm new, having joined since my symptoms have increased. PD advanced slowly over 10 yrs. I'm now a young 70. I almost recouped 7 yrs ago after trapsing around Europe for 3 weeks and became 'normal' (GO FIGURE) , till 4 months Iater I became ill with a typical winter cold accompanied by fever...then all PD symptoms reappeared.
I have never had a decent MD, and while I know they're out there I'm tired of the stress associated with appts., unnecessary, repetitive testing, and poor attitudes, thus I'm going it alone with whatever natural sources I can muster from my readings.
At this juncture, 1/2 tsp. of mucuna daily from nutravita seems to do the trick. Is there any reason I need to take prescription meds if the mucuna is helping ? I also take the usual b vitamins, coq 10, minerals,turmeric, and healthy eating.
