Parkinson disease is a disease of the brain that is characterized by a lack of coordination in the motor activities between the brain and the muscles in the body. The sufferer experiences tremors and a lack of focus and coordination between the brain and the body muscle. For a long time the sufferers of the disease have not been able to get reprieve for their sufferings because there were no cures for Parkinson. Doctors could not treat the whole disease, but worked on each symptom on its own by giving medications; the medications usually resulted in the sufferer feeling weaker and more disoriented and disillusioned.
Today, there are many treatments that can result in positive gains against Parkinson’s disease. One of the therapies is stem cell transplantation. Parkinson’s disease usually affects the brain cells, especially the neuron-motor receptor cells. A stem cell is a transplant of a patient’s own stem cells to the affected part. When the cells are injected, they multiply by their millions with the aid of blood vessels and replace the old worn out cells. This method has shown promise in alleviating some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s. The procedure is cost effective and is simple as compared to other treatments though it is not widely accepted.
Another approach for treating Parkinson is Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurvedic uses techniques that were used to treat a similar disease to Parkinson about 2000 years ago in India. Ayurvedic medicine approaches the disease using natural means. This approach for Parkinson disease involves the body mind and soul of the sufferer. A treatment consists of colonic cleansing, meditation, herbal remedies and massage therapy. The meditation helps the sufferer determine where the source of the disease is. The patient’s stomach is then cleansed using herbal remedies like ashwaganda. The rigidity and imbalance experienced by the sufferer is alleviated using herbal medicines as well. The Ayurvedic medicines take into consideration that the problem with the disease can also be from the mind and uses all the above techniques to alleviate the sufferer.
Another approach includes “broad beans”. It has been researched and proved as help for Parkinson disease. A serving of broad beans together with the pods adds about 250mg of L-dopa into the body. The L-dopa is the chemical hormone that is used by the brain to produce dopamine. Taking the beans on a regular basis even when they are frozen is very useful in treating Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson disease is aggravated by stress, when the person strives to be relaxed, they will significantly reduce symptoms of the disease.
