Can anyone help me out here? I've searched this site for any info on Parkinson's Disease and am finding nothing. My great aunt is in the first stages of it...and I am trying my best to try and figure out how to help her from a natural perspective. She is already on prescription medications to try and help her symptoms...(of course, I'd love to see her come back off of those!)

Any help/advice you can offer will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!  :)

Here is a link for a thread about this here on WTM.

Thank you so much! It's weird...every time I typed it into the search bar, NOTHING would come up! ??? I thought that surely there must be something here already on PD...

Anyhoo, thanks again! I appreciate it!  :)

I have read about mucuna beans being very high in natural l-dopamine which is a precursor to dompamine.  Sorry I don't have a direct link, I just remember reading about them. HTH

Thanks so much, Hodgy! I am going to research that more since I am not familiar with it...
