Some of the agents a homeopath might recommend would include diluted amounts of mercurius vivus, causticum, argentum nitricum, and zincum metallicum. Tremor might be treated with anthimonium tartaricum, mercurius corrosivus, and agaricus. Rigidity and tremor would likely be treated with rhus toxicodendron, and fatigue, weakness, and staggering gait might be treated with gelsemium. These are typically prescribed in a liquid form or in pellets that are dissolved in water and taken several times daily until the motor symptoms improve. There are no published controlled or open label studies indicating the benefit of homeopathic remedies for the treatment of PD and similar to chelation therapy, homeopathy is not accepted or recommended as a treatment for PD.
