(HealthDay News) -- Though there is no cure for Parkinson's disease, making certain lifestyle changes can help you manage symptoms.

The University of Maryland Medical Center offers these suggestions:

  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Exercise regularly, but don't try to do more than you have the energy for.
  • Allow your body time to rest, and do your best to minimize stress.
  • Consider physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy.
  • Think about special accommodations, such as utensils to make eating easier or the addition of handrails at home.
  • Consult with a social worker or counselor to find out if they may be of help.
