      Sir, My wife is 72 yrs old and has been suffering from cerebellar Ataxia for for four yrs. She had been given Alumina 200, Zinc 200 but there was no improvement. She has a tendency to fall forward and cannot walk on her own. Muscles are weak and she feels like lying down- lack of energy. Other parameters are OK. There is slur in speech and volume is very low. Control on motions also lacking. Feeling depression is present.

    BTW, I am otherwise healthy 67 years young lady.

    Thanks in advance.

    Had a stroke originally. Had stem cell treatment for tremors which helped with other things.
    Since then, I developed ataxia [cerebellum] . It also affected my sight..
    I would rather take natural products .
    I was thinking about Phosporus for sight issues & Lathyrus Sativus for the shakiness in arms and weakness of the muscles.
