From Acupuncture Today
By Brenda Duran, Senior Associate Editor
The research study funded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research is currently determining whether alternative Eastern medicine, specifically acupuncture, can help alleviate symptoms of severe fatigue in those living with Parkinson’s.
The foundation, which was established in 2000 by actor Michael J. Fox, is the largest funder of Parkinson’s research in the world. The organization has funded over $270 million in targeted Parkinson’s research to date including the latest study on acupuncture.
