We’ve put together a list of people who advocate a natural approach to managing Parkinson’s symptoms. Every hour, 2 people in the UK are told they have Parkinson’s.Parkinson’s UK estimate the number of people diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2018 in the UK is around 145,000. That’s around 1 adult (ie people aged 18 or over) in every 350. Most people who get Parkinson‘s are aged 50 or over but younger people can get it too.There are approximately 1.5 million Americans with Parkinson’s disease (PD), and research suggests more than 60% use nutritional supplements and alternative therapies. Meet some of the movers and shakers who advocate natural therapies here…
#1 Laurie K Mischley
Dr. Mischley has been treating patients with PD for almost a decade and does not believe the disease need to be either progressive or irreversible. It is her medical opinion that PD progression can be halted, and possibly reversed, with proper nutrition and optimization of a biochemical function. Both her clinical experience and her understanding of the literature support this perspective.
#2 Colin Potter
Presented with a choice between hope and despair, Colin chose hope and determination to pursue his own path. He takes no medication and works relentlessly at my diet and nutrition, toxin elimination, exercise and other natural therapies.
This website shares with you everything he has learned about what causes the onset of Parkinson’s symptoms and the actions you can take to fix those causes. The body is a wondrous thing, with immense innate intelligence. It wants to heal itself and knows how to heal itself. All it needs is to be given the opportunity.
#3 Out thinking Parkinsons – Dr Gary Sharpe
Dr Gary Sharpe, Phd, is a scientist and engineer by background, diagnosed with Early Onset Parkinson’s Disease in 2009. After six years of dying inside, he started “Out-Thinking Parkinson’s” in January 2016 in order to pursue pragmatic and practical solutions towards progressive symptom reduction for people with Parkinson’s Disease. Today, Out-Thinking Parkinson’s has become a major resource, where Gary and colleagues from around the world, who also have an insider’s perspective of PD, share their knowledge, philosophies and experience of living well with PD, and, also, record their stories of recovery.

#4 Parkinson’s Recovery
Robert Rodgers established Parkinson’s Recovery in 2004 to provide support, information and resources to families with a member currently experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s.
#5 John Coleman
John commenced his naturopathic practice at the end of 1998 after achieving his own recovery from advanced Parkinson’s disease and early-stage Multi System Atrophy. However, his interest in complementary medicine goes back more than 50 years when a naturopath resolved a chronic skin condition doctors had been unable to diagnose or treat successfully.
#6 Bianca Molle
Bianca Molle used her Qi gong practice has helped reverse her own Parkinson’s symptoms. Qi gong is the form of medical Qi gong that matches ancient movements, meditation and sounds to facilitate the healing of modern medical conditions. Qigong is beneficial to Parkinson’s for one primary reason. It reconnects the mind and the body.
This connection helps the mind focus, the brain create new neural connections, the body move with ease and the heart discover inner joy and happiness. Studies have now mapped remarkable changes in the brain that result from practices like Qigong. Through her own research investigations Bianca learned about how Qigong had been reputed to help Parkinson’s. In June, 2009, a little over a year since her Parkinson’s disease diagnosis, Ming tong Gu of the Chi Center brought Zhineng Qigong to Marin County. Within her first few minutes of practice, she began to feel relief. Symptoms gradually abated. In September of 2010 she was declared symptom-free of the disease by the neurologist. She continues to feel better and stronger in all aspects of her life.
#6 Howard Shifke
Fighting Parkinson’s Drug Free presents a holistic approach to embracing the disease from a new perspective. Howard Shifke recovered from Parkinson’s Disease using a holistic approach to recovery that he designed. The approach is called his Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. His recipe for recovery is outlined in his Blog post dated January 5, 2011, and it is a combination of Qigong, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupressure, Soul, Mind, Body Medicine, Chanting, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Yin Tui Na, a vegetarian diet, and many meditation/affirmation/prayer techniques.
#7 Fred Phillips
My mission (and I chose to accept it) is to bring awareness to ‘the importance of feeling good about ourselves.’ I believe it is the most important thing for our health and well-being. If we don’t feel lovable, worthy, good enough and empowered, nothing else matters. When we feel good about ourselves, we can handle any experience that comes our way!
Secondarily, it is to encourage people to be kind. Kindness can save humanity and nothing makes you feel better about yourself than being kind! Thirdly, it is to provide information, based on my experience, to assist people who are coping with and trying to overcome Parkinson’s.
#8 Glen Pettibone
In August of 2014 I released my book “Powerful Food And A Walk In The Sun”, detailing my journey to a drug-free, surgery-free vitality regained. Since then there have been many more successes and many new challenges.
#9 Dr. Antonio Costantini’s protocol
Medics, led by Dr Antonio Constantini, published the results of the ongoing three-year long trial in the prestigious BMJ Case Reports.He wrote: ‘High-dose thiamine has led to a rapid, remarkable and persistent improvement of the symptoms in two patients with essential tremor.
Doctor Costantini says: “Thiamine is fundamental to our body in order to burn sugar; it acts as a spark in the engine, as lubrificant and carburator. It plays a vital role for our organism”.
