Check out this link to learn how the Feldenkrais Method might be helpful to your grandfather: http://www.google.com/search?q=feldenkrais+parkinson&hl=en&num=10&lr=&ft=i&cr=&safe=images

Click this link to find a Feldenkrais practitioner near your grandfather: http://www.feldenkrais.com/practitioners/find/

If you'll tell me where your grandfather lives I might be able to make specific referrals to some of my colleagues (I'm a Feldenkrais practitioner in New York City).

Good luck,

How about a ketogenic diet? Here is a journal article discussing the potential effect of such a diet on people with PD:


Summarized by someone else: "the theory is that replacing glucose with ketones (in this case, beta-hydroxybutyrate) can bypass the PD defect and slow progression by boosting mitochondrial function."

I don't live in the US, so http://www.michaeljfox.org/foxtrialfinder.cfmI

is of no use. I have been using http://www.clinicaltrials.gov

But, I have found


(Stephen Hawking uses a similar product from the same company! )

Which I will probably use.

I don't really want to try Feldenkrais .
