Natural Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease
by Abdul Qayyum Rana

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic neurological condition that can become quite disabling overtime. Unfortunately there is currently no cure available for Parkinson’s disease. However, there are many successful pharmacological treatments that help to improve the symptoms of this condition. In addition to the pharmacological therapy, which is the mainstay of treatment, there are many natural methods and non-pharmacological strategies which if supplemented with the pharmacological treatments could improve the quality of life of patients. This guide briefly discusses these natural therapies and non-pharmacological strategies along with the various aspects of this condition. This booklet may be used by the patients and their caregivers who want to learn about these non-pharmacological approaches. Healthcare workers may also find helpful information that can be used while managing this complicated condition.
