This answer was rated:

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.
Let me know if you have any follow up questions, Peter.Best wishes.
