Overview

It is estimated that over 1,000,000 people in the United States are living with Parkinson's Disease and another 60,000 will be diagnosed in the next year.  It is a disease defined by tremors, rigidity and bradykinesia.  But there are non-motor symptoms associated with the disease as well, and it is these symptoms that can significantly affect a person's quality of life on a day-to-day basis.

This guide was designed as a resource for locating information on non-medicinal treatments for Parkinson's Disease patients.  It includes articles, books, links, and videos on mood therapy and alternative treatments that do not affect a patient's medications.
