Homeopathy Medicine for Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease, also known as paralysis agitans or shaking palsy, is a movement disorder that affects men more frequently than women and typically develops after the age of 60. The average age at which symptoms first appear in the USA is 58–60. Cases of PD have been reported in people of all ages, though it is uncommon in those under the age of 40.
The real cause behind this has never been identified, though many risk factors have been listed in literature. The nerve cells (neurons) that make the chemical called dopamine either do not work sufficiently or are completely destroyed, and these nerve cells are in the part of the brain that controls movements that are most affected.
SYMPTOMS OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE
The number of symptoms and their intensity are known to vary with each individual, and people with Parkinson’s disease need not exhibit all common symptoms. The most typical signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s include:
Tremors –Initially mild and only noticeable while resting, these tremors eventually become noticeable even during regular movements and can be felt in the fingers, hands, arms, legs, jaw, and face.
Rigidity– People with rigidity have muscles that are always stiff and do not relax, which can sometimes lead to a reduced range of motion. Normally, muscles stretch when they move and relax when they are at rest.
Stiffness– In advanced conditions, even the facial muscles become very rigid, giving the appearance of an expressionless face, similar to wearing a mask. Rigidity can cause pain and cramping. The sense of fluidity in these movements is lost. Muscular movement like walking, running, dancing, sitting, and grasping objects with fingers all seem very stiff.
Bradykinesia –A person with bradykinesia will likely also experience incomplete movements, trouble starting movements, and abrupt stopping of ongoing movements in addition to the feeling of stiffness and rigidity.
Performing tasks that call for quick, alternating movements is becoming more difficult.
When starting to walk or run, a lack of coordination and loss of balance cause frequent falls.
Gait –There is a‘shuffling’ gaitSmall obstructions usually cause the patient to trip, and the gait is characterized by quick steps with feet barely off the ground.
Decreased arm swing –Patients with PD maintain a rigid neck and upper body, turning “en-bloc,” instead of the more common twisting of the neck and trunk and pivoting on the toes, necessitating multiple small steps to complete a turn.
Festination –It results in a gait that gets faster and faster, frequently leading to a fall, because of the combination of a hunched posture, imbalance, and short steps.
Dystonia –Dystonia can be quite generalized, involving the majority of skeletal muscles; such episodes are very painful and completely incapacitating. abnormal, sustained, painful twisting muscle contractions, typically affecting the foot and ankle, interfering with gait
The sluggishness and incompleteness of movement can also affect speaking and swallowing, and they may experience periods of “freezing”**, which is when a person feels stuck to the ground and finds it challenging to begin walking.
Speech: Occasionally, the speech becomes excessively rapid, soft, and difficult to understand. Later, the voice becomes hoarse and monotonous.
As the disorder worsens over time, people experience difficulty reading others’ facial expressions during conversations and understanding the meaning and essence of what is being said.
Drooling is caused by slouched posture and a weak swallow.
More symptoms :
- Small, cramped handwriting (micrographia)
- Dementia and confusion
- Fear or anxiety
- Slow thinking & memory problems
- Sexual dysfunction
- Fatigue and body aches
- Compulsive behaviors
- Loss of energy
- Vivid, disturbing dreams, insomnia, and excessive daytime sleepiness are all signs of disturbed sleep.
As the disease advances, these symptoms are evident, but not everyone experiences them, and they differ in intensity depending on the individual.
CAUSES OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE
These are a few things that scientists think predisposes people to Parkinson’s Disease, but they don’t know the exact cause of it.
DIAGNOSIS OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE
Since it is difficult to accurately diagnose PD, no blood or laboratory tests are currently available that have been shown to be helpful, so a doctor’s diagnosis of PD is made solely on the basis of a patient’s medical history and a neurological examination.
HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASES
CAUSTICUM :Very helpful when getting up from a sitting or lying position is extremely difficult, when there is great difficulty maintaining balance while walking, when there is great difficulty getting up from a lying or sitting position, when there is great difficulty getting up from a sitting or lying position, when there is great difficulty getting up from a lying or sitting position, when there is great difficulty getting up from a lying or sitting position, and when there is trembling of hands.
GELSEMIUM :There is a strong shaking of the hands, legs, or tongue that is accompanied by excessive weakness, and the condition is made worse by sudden mental excitement. Useful medication for Parkinson’s disease of nervous origin. Helpful for anxious and sensitive patients who get excited very easily from a sudden fear or emotions.
PLUMBUM MET :Given when body muscles move slowly and sluggishly. There is slowness which is always accompanied by wasting or emaciation of the affected muscles. This is useful for Parkinson’s disease with marked Bradykinesia or slowness in movement.
MERC SOL :The medication Mercurius Solubilis is extremely effective at controlling saliva production from the mouth in Parkinson’s disease patients. There is also a general nighttime worsening of symptoms, including trembling of the tongue, difficulty speaking, and an unpleasant odor coming from the mouth.
ZINCUM MET :Very beneficial medication for people with Parkinson’s disease who experience hand tremors, as well as for people whose feet move constantly.
