Natural alternative/substitute to ampyra

Hi all
I was just wondering is there any natural/homeopathic alternative to ampyra showing reasonable results. Any supplements etc. that have a positive result with stiffness and spasticity? Any recommendations would be gratefully appreciated.

Curcumin (extract of the spice turmeric) supplements greatly help my spasticity, but I still wouldn't give up my Ampyra; I can barely walk without it.

There are none that I know of that work along the same action path as Ampyra.

However, caffeine (as you can find in tea and coffee which are natural, although I take "NoDoze") should not be underestimated. I find I can exercise 20% longer on caffeine, and it would probably help my "walking speed" more than Ampyra. But Ampyra helps a lot more with muscle control and balance etc
