Alternative Wellness

Dystonia, by nature, is a complicated condition at every stage, from symptoms to diagnosis to treatment. In this way, and similarly to other nuanced disorders, alternative wellness practices are known to be particularly effective in regulating and reducing symptoms. As with any treatment, Down with Dystonia strongly suggests consulting with a doctor in addition to your trusted alternative wellness practitioner before beginning any new treatment regimen.
