Getting anxiety attacks, throat feel tight. Diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Taking vocal therapy. Treatment?

I have been diagnosed with Parkinson s Disease for almost 2 years now. Lately, I have been experiencing the sensation that I am being choked; my throat feels tight and it feels like food is sticking in my throat. I also have severe choking episodes where I choke and gag and then cough for up to an hour afterward (of course, the cough eases somewhat but the throat is still irritated). What can I do about this? I am taking vocal therapy to keep my vocal cords strong and I have worked with a swallowing specialist but things seem to be getting worse which triggers anxiety attacks which make my Parkinson s symptoms worse. Can you give me any more ideas to help with this? I will see my neurologist soon and will tell her about it but it s hard to deal with right now.

Homeopath 's  Response
Hello friend,
I am a Homoeopath answering your question through Health care magic. This answer may appear to be strange for you because the advise I am going to give you will be different from your line of thoughts.
In Homoeopathy, we do not give much importance to the name of the disease or the diagnosis. We do not treat the disease but we treat the patient. For us YOU are more important than the name of your disease.
The type of presentation of your present problem gives me to conclude that you are not in any way improving in health. The present symptoms suggest a deeper affection involving the cranial nerves used for swallowing. Also it seems that your vocal cords are affected for which you are undergoing vocal therapy. This shows the involvement of the cranial nerves for the vocal cords. You need thorough investigations to rule out Multiple sclerosis also. These are all diseases for which the conventional medicine has got less chances to help you curatively.

In Homoeopathy, we treat the patient in his totality. We consider the mind and body of the patient. Your life situations and your reactions to them are important. Your personal, family and past histories are all important to be considered. Your past disease history and the type of medications you have taken are to be taken into account. All these we Homoeopaths do during the case taking, analysis etc. Finally we find out a genetic constitutional remedy for you to cure you.
Therefore my advise to you is to approach an expert Homoeopath at the earliest and continue treatment as he advises.
Stop all strong chemo drugs you are taking as per the advise of your Homoeopath. Many of the suppressive drugs can have final affections on the nervous system causing the Parkinson like syndrome.
With best wishes,
Dr. C. J. Varghese
