    My symptoms started at the age of 46. My fingers on my left hand were stiff and were difficult to move. People noticed that my walk was not normal. I was often asked did I hurt. I noticed something different about my walk. It was difficult getting up from` a chair and getting out of a car. I was diagnosed a year later and i have to find a better solution and was introduced to try the help of herbal formula. I am now 59 tho and am fully cured from Parkinson’s disease.
    contact Total Cure Herbal Foundation on: Totalcureherbalfoundation@gmail.com or visit their website at https://totalcureherbalfou5.wixsite.com/herbal/contact i had to use the remedies for 15 weeks usage which really help on my condition.
