What may help Parkinson’s?

A life-style change is paramount.

I have treated clients with Parkinson’s and when they follow the criteria set out in the book “Rethinking Parkinson’s Disease” by John Coleman and have regular therapy and follow his guidance their symptoms generally diminish.

  • Eating organic food (as local as possible) and avoiding foods and drinks that cause inflammation.
  • Eating calmly and mindfully.
  • Detoxing.
  • Using environmentally products
  • Having the correct nutritional supplements.
  • Physical exercise
  • Meditating/having a yoga practice.
  • Engaging with people with a positive mindset. Laughter is important.
  • Hydration- Aqua Hydration Formula.
  • Having a gentle therapy like Bowen Therapy.
