In 1995, at the age of 45, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. In September, 2000 my neurologist told me I could no longer drive because of the side effects of the drugs I was taking to manage the symptoms of the disease. At that point, I had tried some alternative supplements & treatments, but was mostly following Western medicine’s protocol of medications. Not being able to drive at only 50 years of age was enough to make me search for other ways of managing this illness. In January, 2001, I started loglutathione IVs & taking supplements regularly. In March, I started seeing Dr. Bonnie twice a week for a specific protocol using electro-stim & acupuncture. I received deep tissue massages at Wellspring once a week, had occasional chiropractic adjustments, followed dietary recommendations & got regular exercise. All of this allowed me to cut my drug intake in half, so that by the end of May I was allowed to drive again! There is no doubt in my mind that acupuncture plays a huge role in controlling the symptoms I experience. I am grateful to Dr. Bonnie Walker & her staff for their concern & support.
