I find energy drinks ( Powerade/ Gatorade ) help me when I need to do a project around the house. I usually start drinking it an hr before I start the project and regularly through the project
You have to stay active to avoid fatigue. Force yourself to take a brisk walk, or do some other type of exercise you like to build up your energy level. You can’t sit around and watch TV all day, and then wonder why are you fatigued. I walk at least two miles every morning, do stretch exercises, and go to gym three times per week for 60 minute Rock Steady Boxing classes. Staying active provides you energy and keeps you going.

Juicing has helped my father immensely!
We juice organic carrots, watermelon, apple, celery. He has much more energy after that
The problem he is faced with is the gastrointestinal burning with constant dosing of Senimet. Does anyone have the same side effects?
I feel like PD meds are so incredibly hard on the body. My dad is only 72 year old and has aged to appear as though he is 90 year old. It’s so horrible to see him suffer this way. All PD docs know what to do is prescribe more meds!
One other treatment we are doing is L-Glutithion. This incredible antioxidants is deficient in PD patients. It helps aid the liver in detoxification and can reduce PD symptoms by 40%. We got a prescription and my sister is a nurse. They have to be administered via IV.
My husband goes to boxing classes three times a week to work on strength and balance and exercises two days a week! It wears him out but is great for him!
