Some of the home remedies for Huntington’s disease include drinking green tea, increasing your intake of vitamin E, and coenzyme Q-10. Furthermore, you should try to cleanse your body as much as possible, reduce toxins in your kidneys and liver, participate in physical activity, meditate, practice martial arts, and increase your sweating.

Home Remedies of Huntington’s Disease

Home Remedies for Huntington’s Disease are as follows:

Green Tea

Green tea has been shown to reduce the psychological effects of Huntington’s disease by reducing stress and anxiety on the brain. The brain is what Huntington’s disease affects the most, so any neural stimulation is a good alternative and a way to prevent the disease from getting worse.

Vitamin E

This essential vitamin is a recommended treatment for Huntington’s disease. Increasing your intake of vitamin E can help stimulate neurological connections and patterns, which makes the slow decline of the mind even slower, providing a normal level of functioning and life for many patients.


Physical Activity

Before the disease reaches physically debilitating stages, working out or doing any sort of physical activity can slow down the progress of the disease. First of all, it can stimulate sweating, and secondly, keeping the body active causes the release of certain endorphins and hormones that can stimulate the brain and keep it from breaking down.


One of the best ways to slow down the effects of Huntington’s disease is to remove the toxins from the body. When energy is expended eliminating toxins from the body, that is stealing important resources from the body in its fight against the disease. Therefore, encouraging sweating in any way is a positive remedy for Huntington’s disease, because sweating actually helps the body remove toxins, some of which can only be removed via the sweat glands. Eating hot peppers, spicy foods, wasabi, and other sweat-inducing spices is a very good way of detoxifying the body.


Unfortunately, there is no real cure for Huntington’s disease, but relaxing your body and mind is actually a great way to slow down the advance of the disease. Meditation and yoga are both very powerful tools that people can use to improve their mental health and stability. Furthermore, yoga can help release toxins from the body by relaxing muscles and releasing tension.

Coenzyme Q-10

This specific coenzyme has been linked to improving the conditions of Huntington’s disease by improving the quality and functionality of the brain, heart, liver, and kidneys. This coenzyme can be found in beef, chicken, pork, fish, and various oils, including soybean and olives. You can also get this coenzyme from nuts, vegetables, and fruit. Coenzyme Q-10 is one of the most essential elements of Huntington’s disease prevention, and should be consumed in large quantities to maintain your quality of life for as long as possible.

A Word of Caution

It is important to remember that none of these home remedies or behavioral shifts are cures for this degenerative disease. There is no way to completely eradicate the condition, and you should also not rely solely on these remedies for making your condition better. Be sure to see a doctor for an actual examination and listen to his prescribed method of treatment.
