Naturopathy and Parkinson's Disease



Parkinson’s disease is a long-term and degenerative condition that changes movement, muscle function, and coordination. This means that symptoms continue and worsen overt time. Those who have this condition often have trouble with muscle tremors, stiffness and slowness of movements. This can lead to problems with balance, walking, and even talking.


But what causes these symptoms? Well, there are very specific cells in the brain that begin to malfunction and die off. These cells produce dopamine, a neurotransmitter (or chemical) important for maintaining appropriate muscle function. When these cells aren’t working properly, there is a decrease in the amount of dopamine produced. This leads to the changes in muscle movement and coordination classically seen with this disease.


It can be a challenging and overwhelming diagnosis to manage with varying results from medical treatment. In addition to the use of medications often used to manage symptoms, many patients find things such as nutrition, lifestyle, and supplementation to be useful tools to help maintain independence and function. These interventions can play a lovely role in supporting those who have this condition manage disease symptoms and address associated issues such as changes in sleep, constipation, and mood changes.

    I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease nearly 4 years ago, at age 51. I had a stooped posture, tremors, muscle stiffness, sleeplessness, and slow movement. I was placed on Sinemet for 7 months and then Sifrol and rotigotine were introduced which replaced the Sinemet but I had to stop due to side effects. I was in denial for a while as there is no history of PD in my family. I also used amantadine, and physical therapy to strengthen muscles all failed. I decided to adopt a more natural approach and started on Parkinson's Herbal formula from Organic Herbal Clinic, the Parkinson's natural formula immensely helped my condition, i had a total recovery from PD with this natural herbal formula treatment.
