Advice needed Re Parkinson's

Hello,
I am wondering if anyone could tell me how Parkinson's disease is treated in Switzerland. Are they very much concentrated on pharmaceuticals or do they welcome more naturopathic treatments, such as with mucuna pruriens, etc.?
Would greatly appreciate insights in this area.

Many thanks,
Sarah

It all depends on the doctor you go to.

Re: Advice needed Re Parkinson's

Sarahvienna, it may be more a question of would that sort of treatment be covered by the basic mandatory insurance or whether it comes under supplementary cover. If the latter, unless the person already has this cover they won't be able to get it now. They'd have to pay for it out of their own pocket.
