Default Natural Meds

I am looking at some natural meds, so I am asking for any comments. One is called L-tyrosine, and I am considering taking it for the shaking. My Drs at the VA do not know very much about natural medicine. Please, any comments will help me. Stephen

Take a look at Mucuna Pruriens.

Although L-tyrosine can work it tends to be problematic since you need to take quite a lot and it can cause kidney stones. It is possible to take some other additional supplements to help avoid the stones but Mucuna is better.

This information about L-tyrosine might help you. Note that it cautions against taking L-tyrosine at the same time as levodopa.

Default mucuna threads

Search "mucuna" on this forum and you will find a lot of information about it. Aunt Bean grows her own fava beans to get it, but you can order it in bulk powder and I think even a liquid.

Mucuna was the only "supplement" we've used that had a discernible effect, for us. Everyone is different. Good luck

There seems to be a lot of conflicting information on the net. I have read so much on PD that I am overwhelmed by it all. I take 500mg 3 times a day, and it does help with the tremors. I just want to make sure I am not hurting myself with L-tyrosine. I have TOS, RSD and now PD. The VA treats me for all my health needs, but they do not know about natural meds. Any help would be appreciated, and thanks for reading my post. Stephen
