Natural Cure for Parkinson's Disease
Suggestions When Looking for Natural Remedies for Parkinson's DiseaseThere are a number of things to think about if you are considering any alternative Parkinson's disease treatments:
- Proven conventional treatments for Parkinson's disease should not be replaced with an alternative therapy that is unproven.
- Tell your healthcare provider(s) about any supplements or medications (prescription or over-the-counter) that you are using or considering. Prescribed medicines may need to be adjusted if you are also using an alternative therapy. Supplements can interact with medications (whether prescription or over-the-counter) and can affect how the body responds to them. Pharmacists can also be a helpful source of information about dietary supplements, although their advice is not a substitute for that of your healthcare provider.
- If you decide to use supplements, be aware that what you see on the label may not reflect what is in the bottle. For example, some botanical supplements have been found to be contaminated with heavy metals or prescription drugs, and some have been found to have much more or much less of the featured ingredient than their label states.
