Conventional Medicine Causes Additional Complications for Parkinson’s Disease Patients

According to the Parkinson’s Foundation, more than 90,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease each year.

Unfortunately, most of these patients will experience a standard of care that focuses only on relieving symptoms and neglects the underlying cause of disease. The conventional standard for Parkinson’s Disease treatment involves medications like levodopa, which seek only to delay the onset of serious problems. Not only is this strategy unsustainable, but these medications are known to cause a range of additional long-term complications, including dyskinesias and toxicity, within just 5 years of use. 

Luckily, there ARE other options.

Parkinson's Disease

The second most common neurodegenerative disease in the world, Parkinson’s Disease (PD) involves the loss of dopamine-producing nerve cells in the brain. Though symptoms may be manageable at first, PD is a progressive disease that soon takes a severe toll on quality of life and day-to-day functioning, eventually impairing intellectual and motor capabilities. Common symptoms include uncontrollable movements and difficulties with balance, coordination, walking, and talking.

A holistic treatment philosophy that considers each individual medically, physically, neurologically, and psychologically, rather than treating health problems merely as isolated diseases, functional medicine focuses on getting to the root cause of disease and providing relief from existing symptoms without causing additional damage or side effects. By utilizing a combination of therapies and approaching healing from every possible avenue, functional medicine offers more tools to patients with Parkinson’s Disease and maximizes healing odds.

Finding the

By looking at environmental, lifestyle, and diagnostic factors we work to find the root cause.


Every person is different, and that is why our treatments and therapies are specific to your needs and diagnosis.


You Deserve to Utilize EVERY Available Tool for Your Healing

Common knowledge tells us to approach even minor health complications, like colds and flus, on multiple fronts: get lots of rest (support your immune system), drink lots of fluids (detox), eat some soup and take some vitamin C (ensure proper nutrition).

In these cases, it’s second nature for us to do everything in our power to restore health — so why should we settle for pigeon-holed treatment when health complications are even more serious? You deserve comprehensive, sustainable healing. Our functional medicine approach has helped countless patients from all walks of life find just that.
