A few responses: 1. There is NO cure medically, but some effective medicines and DBS. No "natural" cure available. 2. Hard to predict if you are at risk, as genetics not so clearcut in most cases, but most cases sporadic, not familial. 3. Prevention, as we know it: avoid brain injury, carbon monoxide poisoning, hypoxia, manganese toxicity, viral encephalitis.
