Several nutritional therapies have been suggested as treatments for Parkinson's. None of these have been proved effective. But it is important to maintain general health and to eat a balanced diet.
Before trying a complementary treatment, such as a special diet, talk with your doctor about the safety and potential side effects of the treatment. Talking with your doctor can help you both decide whether a treatment is safe and effective. Complementary treatments should not replace the use of medicines to treat Parkinson's if you are a candidate for treatment with these medicines.
Depression that does not respond to drugs may improve with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). ECT can also improve movement for a short period of time, though the reason for this improvement isn't understood.
