I have just been diagnosed with cerebellar degeneration. I

Resolved Question:

I have just been diagnosed with cerebellar degeneration. I have been on psychotrophic medication since 1967,(when I had my first nervous breakdown after sharing a flat with a man who I later found out was abusing narcotics). Please will you advise me what to do, and where I should go to get the very best treatment available. I have a psychogenic tremor, bouts of balance problems, occasional anxiety because I know the prognosis, and I have to use a walking stick. I am also on Propranalol. I am a retired G.P. living near Cork, and would do anything to find a 'cure'. Can you help me please, with either orthodox or alternative medicine, or both.? I do not smoke or drink alcohol or caffeine beverages.Otherwise, I am in excellent health.

I think a good place to start is to look at clinical trials that have been completed or are underway. You can look at the results, contact the principal investigators, and/or visit the institutions in which they were done to get specialized care. I can provide you with a link to such trials if you wish.

Here is a link to a host of clinical studies involving cerebellar degeneration that have recently been completed or are currently underway. Check out the principal investigator and call his hospital for an evaluation.https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=cerebellar+degeneration&Search=Search
