Has anyone taken elderberry syrup? If so, how did it affect your PD symptoms? I'm asking because I just read an interesting article about Purdue University researchers studying potential ethnobotanical PD solutions from plants used by Native American Indians. The researchers studied what plants Native American Indian healers would use for symptoms that closely resembled the symptoms that we call Parkinson's Disease today.
Here's a link to the article for anyone who is interested: realnatural.org/native-amer...
The elderberry is on their list of especially helpful plants for the neurological-like ailments. I'm somewhat familiar with elderberry because I've read of extensive research done by Israeli doctors on elderberry's ability to eliminate flu symptoms within one to two days. If it can also slow the progression of PD, it's worth looking into.
I'll talk to my neuro about it. However, he vetoes almost everything I bring up that is not main stream drugs, surgery, or bo-tox injections, so I have to get my "alternative" information elsewhere.
