My father is 67 years old and was diagnosed with PSP 2 1/2 years ago but has had the illness for sometime prior to this but it took them a while to diagnose. He is not on any medication for the illness as we tried a few and they did not seems to be of any help at all and the side effects are pretty awful on most so you begin to wonder really weather they are actually doing more harm than good. I myself am into more natural ways of medication with any illness. I have looked in to this for PSP and other than a high dose of q10 tablets there is not much else recommended. Recently I have started to give my father Turmeric tablets, you can buy the powder and just have that but the tablets are an easier way to take. He has been taking them for just over 2 months and I can not believe the improvement. He is still falling over as it seems there is very little that can be done to help with this but his speech and overall way of thinking and interacting has been so much better since taking turmeric. I have conversations with him like i used to he seems to be more on the ball and remember things better, he still has off days with his speech and slurring but has genreally been much better. I would definately say to anyone with psp that it is worth trying as it can not do any harm. I was also wondering if anyone else had tried and had any positive effects?
