I am writing in a personal capacity, about opportunities for applying for grants related to the Parkinson condition.


Here is their link:

and also ideas in putting together a proposal:

I work at Parkinson's and have done research in the possibility of alternative health in helping people with Parkinson's. I have not been asked by any manager or executive to do this - it is from my own intitiative and experience with alternative health that i feel that alternative health could help.

Only a few people have ever tried to get an alternative health research grant and i understand that the more professional the application the more likely success.



In simple terms, any grant needs to explain: what doing, why and how, also be open for peer review. What is the study development process, or pilot study.

Similar to business plan, when going to the bank to borrow money to set up an alternative health centre, it needs to be clear and easy to understand and professional. If you are going to spend £5,000 or £30,000, you would like to know what you are getting for it. Parkinson's spend over £4 million annually on Research, so there is funding. You can also call them for advice in putting together a proposal. Many people with Parkinson's use alternative treatments.



My personal ideas are in the areas of looking for patterns through: diagnostics, allergies, therapies.
