Is there a recommended diet for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD)?
Research suggests that eating a whole-food plant-based diet, rich in a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and high in fiber, can help some PD symptoms.
In addition, older people with PD should avoid High-Protein Foods, Dairy Products, Processed Foods, Hard-to-Chew Foods, Salty Foods and Acidic Foods.

It is most effectively used to control motor symptoms that are apparent in Parkinson’s disease.
