Parkinson's disease is also known as PD. This disorder occurs in the central nervous system. It often impairs the persons: motor skills, speech, muscle coordination, and other functions. As these symptoms escalate they lead to difficulty with walking, talking, and other simple tasks. No person is usually affected under the age of 50. Depending on the person it progresses more quickly.
Symptoms are normally restricted on a single limb in the first phases of the disease. But they eventually affect the other half of the body. Most patients are aware of this nature of the disease, and this knowledge makes the condition even more unbearable (both physically and psychologically) which often leads to over-monitoring of their cases.
• Tremor (shaking) is a common symptom of Parkinson’s disease. Most often, a hand or arm shakes on one or both sides of the body. Tremor may also affect other areas of the body, such as a leg, a foot, or the chin. Shaking usually lessens when the affected part is used. It usually worsens when at rest. • Rigidity (stiffness), or muscle tightness, happens because the muscles don’t get the signal to relax. Rigidity may cause muscle pain and a stooped posture. • Bradykinesia means “slow movement.” Starting to move takes extra effort, causing problems with actions such as getting out of chairs and beds. Walking may be limited to short, shuffling steps. Blinking, facial expressions, swinging of arms when walking and other “unconscious movements” are also slowed down. • Problems with balance can lead to falls, often forward or backward. • Other symptoms may include speaking too softly and in a monotone, writing that gets shaky and smaller across the page, and sometimes trouble swallowing. Constipation is a common problem for people with Parkinson’s disease. Symptoms may also include oily skin, sweating, and changes in blood pressure. Memory loss and other problems with thinking may also be present.
Early symptoms of Parkinson's disease include muscular stiffness, a tendency to tire more easily than usual, and trembling that usually begins with a slight tremor in one hand, arm, or leg.
Parkinson’s Disease Natural Treatment: -
• Vitamin B6 is essential to stimulate the conversion of L-dopa to dopamine. This and the other B-group vitamins may become deficient in people taking L-dopa drugs for long periods, and so a supplement of 50-100mg of vitamin B6 a day (in a B-complex formulation) is recommended. • The patient should avoid tea, coffee, chocolate, salt, spices, condiments, pickles, flesh foods, white flour and white sugar and all processed, tinned, canned and frozen foods. The short juice fast followed by an all-fruit diet should IJP, repeated at monthly intervals till condition improves. • Vitamin E and folic acid (found in seeds, whole grains and dark green vegetables) are important as they are involved in the conversion of phenylalanine (an amino acid) to L-dopa in your brain. Some scientists believe Parkinson's disease may be linked to a deficiency of these nutrients in early life.
