Effective Treatment for Parkinson’s Disease
For treatment to be effective, treatment must target that cause of the disease. This may seem like an obvious statement, but it is very uncommon in medicine to treat the cause of the problem. Most medications attempt to fix merely the symptoms as long as you continue to take them, usually for the rest of your life or until they stop working. This is certainly the case for most dopamine agonists for treatment of Parkinson’s Disease.
At Sunridge we are not interested in treating symptoms. Our doctors strive to treating the underlying cause of a patient’s Parkinson’s Disease. This is the only way to have long lasting results.
In most cases of Parkinson’s Disease we are able to identify the cause of the disease for our patients. However, sometimes it is more difficult.
Parkinson’s Disease 101
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disease which affects nerve cells in a part of the brain called the basal ganglia. The basal ganglia control movement and balance in the body and produce an inhibitory neurotransmitter called dopamine. In Parkinson’s disease, the cells that produce dopamine gradually die off and this alters the processing of information about movement in the brain, which is why patients with Parkinson’s typically have trouble with movement.
People usually start to have symptoms between the ages of 50 and 60, but in some people symptoms start earlier. In time, Parkinson’s affects muscles all through your body, so it can lead to problems like trouble swallowing or constipation. In the later stages of the disease, a person with Parkinson’s may have a fixed or blank expression, trouble speaking, and other problems. Some people also have a decrease in mental skills and suffer from dementia.
Patients who follow our Parkinson’s treatment protocol will typically notice improvements in:
- Fine Motor Control, Balance and Resting Tremor
- Memory, Mood and Sleep
- Mobility, Strength and Independence
- Understanding Parkinson’s Disease
Causes of Parkinson’s Disease
There is no single cause or single risk factor for developing Parkinson’s disease yet there is a body of research that has linked Parkinson’s disease to:
- Exposures to environmental toxins including heavy metals and pesticides
- Chronic Infections
- History of Head Trauma
- Preventing Parkinson’s
