HOMOEOPATHY FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE
While a tremor may be the most recognizable symptom of Parkinson’s disease, the disorder also frequently results in stiffness or slowing of movement. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement that sometimes starts with a barely perceptible tremor in just one hand.
Parkinson’s disease symptoms worsen over time as your condition progresses, and early signs may include your face having little to no expression, your arms not swinging when you walk, and soft or slurred speech.
Parkinsonismis any illness that produces several of the movement irregularities associated with Parkinson’s disease, such as tremor, slow movement, slurred speech, or muscle stiffness, especially as a result of the death of dopamine-containing nerve cells (neurons).
CausesParkinson’s disease is characterized by the gradual breakdown or death of specific nerve cells (neurons) in the brain. Many symptoms are brought on by the loss of dopamine-producing neurons, which cause abnormal brain activity and cause the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
Several factors, including the following, seem to contribute to Parkinson’s disease, though its exact cause is unknown.
Your genes.Specific genetic mutations that can cause Parkinson’s disease have been identified by researchers, but they are uncommon outside of rare cases in which many members of the patient’s family also have the condition.
Though the risk of Parkinson’s disease is only marginally increased by each of these genetic markers, some gene variations do appear to increase the risk of the disorder.
Environmental triggers.Parkinson’s disease may be more likely to develop later in life if you are exposed to specific toxins or environmental factors, but this risk is minimal.
Researchers have also discovered that individuals with Parkinson’s disease experience numerous changes in their brains, although it is unclear why these changes take place.
The presence of Lewy bodies.Lewy bodies, microscopic markers of Parkinson’s disease, are clumps of specific substances within brain cells; they are thought to hold a key to the cause of Parkinson’s disease.
Alpha-synuclein is found within Lewy bodies.The natural and common protein known as alpha-synuclein (A-synuclein) is present in all Lewy bodies in a clumped form that cells cannot degrade. Although many substances are found within Lewy bodies, scientists believe an important one is the protein’s role in Parkinson’s disease.
Early symptoms of Parkinson’s disease may be subtle and go unnoticed. Symptoms frequently start on one side of your body and are typically worse on that side even after symptoms start to affect both sides.
The following are examples of Parkinson’s symptoms:
Tremor.You may notice a back-and-forth rubbing motion between your thumb and forefinger, also referred to as a pill-rolling tremor, which is a common sign of Parkinson’s disease.
Slowed movement (bradykinesia).Parkinson’s disease may gradually impair your ability to move, slow your movement, and make simple tasks challenging and time-consuming.
Rigid muscles.Any part of your body can experience muscle stiffness, which can reduce your range of motion and hurt you.
Impaired posture and balance.Parkinson’s disease may cause you to develop stooped posture or to experience balance issues.
Loss of automatic movements.You might have less capacity for automatic movements like blinking, grinning, or swinging your arms when you walk if you have Parkinson’s disease.
Speech changes.Parkinson’s disease may cause speech issues, including slurred speech, slurred speech, slurred speech before starting a sentence, slurred speech while speaking, and more monotone speech than usual.
Writing changes.There’s a chance that writing will get challenging and that it will look small.
Parkinson’s disease risk factors include the following:
Age.Parkinson’s disease rarely affects young adults; instead, it usually strikes in middle or later life, and the risk of developing it rises with age.
Heredity.It is more likely for you to develop Parkinson’s disease if you have a close relative who has it, but unless you have a large number of Parkinson’s disease-affected family members, your risks are still low.
Sex.Parkinson’s disease affects men more frequently than it does women.
Exposure to toxins.You may have a slightly higher risk of developing Parkinson’s disease if you are consistently exposed to pesticides and herbicides.
ComplicationsThese additional issues are frequently present in Parkinson’s disease patients and may be manageable:
Thinking difficulties.In the later stages of Parkinson’s disease, you may encounter cognitive issues (dementia) and thinking challenges that aren’t always amenable to treatment.
Depression and emotional changes.Depression is a common symptom of Parkinson’s disease, and getting help for it can make it easier to deal with the other difficulties that come with the condition.
Doctors may prescribe drugs to treat these symptoms, which include other emotional changes like fear, anxiety, or motivation loss.
Swallowing problems.As your condition worsens, you might experience swallowing problems, which could cause saliva to build up in your mouth and cause drooling.
Sleep problems and sleep disorders.A common sleep issue for those who have Parkinson’s disease is frequent nighttime awakenings, early morning awakenings, or daytime sleepiness.
Medication may help your sleep issues. Rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder, which involves acting out dreams, is another possibility.
Bladder problems.Problems with the bladder, such as inability to control urine or difficulty urinating, may result from Parkinson’s disease.
Constipation.Constipation is a common symptom of Parkinson’s disease and is primarily brought on by a slower digestive system.
You may also experience:
Blood pressure changes.Standing up suddenly can cause orthostatic hypotension, which can make you feel faint or lightheaded.
Smell dysfunction.You might have trouble distinguishing between different smells or having trouble identifying specific smells.
Fatigue.The cause of the energy loss and fatigue that many Parkinson’s disease patients experience is frequently unknown.
Pain.Pain is a common symptom of Parkinson’s disease, which can manifest itself either locally or systemically in many affected individuals.
Sexual dysfunction.A decline in sexual performance or desire has been reported in some Parkinson’s disease patients.
HomoeopathicSome of the most significant treatments for Parkinson’s disease are listed below. They all have no negative side effects.
LOLIUM TEMULENTUM 3One of the best treatments for Parkinson’s disease, olium temulentum is recommended when a person has unsteady gait, trembling in all of their limbs, is unable to write, is unable to hold a glass of water, has spasms in their arms and legs, and has violent pain in their calves that feels like a cord is tying them to a chair.
Ambra gresia, also known as number 200, is another effective treatment for Parkinson’s disease. It is recommended when tremors and numbness are present, as well as when limbs slack off with the slightest motion, are cold and stiff, and develop brittle, shriveled fingernails.
Parkinson’s disease symptoms include trembling hands and feet while writing, paralysis of the mind and body, poor memory, lack of self-confidence, aversion to strangers, vertigo with nausea when bending over, and pressure and sticking pain in the brain and at the vertex when walking. **BARYTA CARB 200-**Baryta carb is the best treatment for Parkinson’s disease when these symptoms occur.
RHUS TOXICODENDRON 200-Rhus toxicodendron is great for Parkinson’s disease when stiffness of the different parts is affected, there is paralysis and trembling after exertion, the tremors begin with pain that is relieved by motion, and there is crawling and tingling in the tips of the fingers.
**GELSEMIUM 200-**Gelsemium is recommended when dizziness, drowsiness, dullness, and trembling are present, along with paralysis of various muscle groups including the eyes, throat, chest, sphincters, extremities, and muscles of the head, as well as a stumbling gait and loss of muscular coordination.
