Sorry, no way: Huntington's treatment remains in the realm of symptom control at best, and one of the few products to control the chorea is xenazine, which is now available again. See a movement disorder neurological specialist, as research projects are available.

Sorry, no way: There is a prescription medication that can help the chorea associated with huntington's chorea (tetrabenazine, and maybe some miscellaneous neuroleptics). Baking soda has no value in this tough condition.
