I've used homeopathy, light therapy, acoustic therapy, reflexology, acupressure and massage. I would like to use vitamins but can't get her to take them. I'm buying a device I'll report on here, after we use it, for passive exercise and circulation. I'm raising the money for a "Friendly Bed" as it looks to have great potential for comfort as well as muscle-building. She's had Edgar Cayce Castor Oil Packs (abdominal packs), slippery elm tea, and herbal tinctures. Good results for all of those.

For Sundowners I turn lights up at 5 p.m. Bright lights and colored lights have really helped.

A person is more than their diagnosis. There are many complementary therapies that are helpful for all the myriad aches, pains, and special needs of an elder. Massage is calming and can help with circulation for someone who doesn't move around as much as they used to.

I hope people will tell here about alternative treatment they liked or had success from.

For example, yes there are professional reflexologists, but you can also get a book on it, work on your friends and loved ones' feet, without being a professional. I massaged the point for sciatica on my father's foot, and he experienced an instant and permanent cure. I was surprised, but he was flabbergasted, as he was an engineer and pilot, and frankly told me he did not believe in reflexology. After that, he researched a lot of alternative therapies and was fascinated in how and why they work.

All this for Parkinsons? Just be careful of interactions or overdosing. Get a copy of the PDR for herbal medicines. Attend a homeopathic training conference if you can. ewildagain in Denver CO uses homeopathies for treating wildlife very successfully. Both allopathic (traditional) medicine and homeopathic medicines are complex disciplines. Washington Homeopathic in WV is an excellent source of information and research data.
