Dr. Richard P. Brown, MD, reviews what symptoms in Parkinson's recovery may respond to complementary, alternative, or integrative treatments. He discusses the most promising options, their pros and cons, and how to use them.
Dr. Brown believes that the patient can use these modalities and work on improving lifestyle and cycles as a means to recharge their dopamine system, which is critical for reducing symptoms. These approaches will not replace prescription medicine for Parkinson's. However, they will enhance the effectiveness of those medications and improve the quality of life. People can expect to have more energy, ability to move, mental clarity and engagement with the world. His Website: www.haveahealthymind.com
