Naturiste Celebrates World Parkinson's Day

Parkinson's disease is part of the lives of more than 25,000 Quebecers. Life courses are turned upside down by the diagnosis and permanent changes are made at the onset of symptoms to maintain a good quality of life and prolong autonomy.

Parkinson's disease is characterized primarily by a gradual decline in dopamine levels in the brain. In 70% of cases, the first symptom consists of uncontrollable rhythmic tremors of the hands, then the head and legs, occurring more particularly at rest or during times of stress. Often associated with this tremor are depression, anxiety, fatigue, memory loss, bone weakness, constipation, etc.

Progress in Modern Medicine

Thankfully, modern medicine has made strides in treating Parkinson's, with multiple prescription drug options and, in some cases, deep brain stimulation surgery, which can delay the effects of the disease, but not completely cure it.

So there is still no cure for this horrible disease that affects so many people, which is why we have this Parkinson's Awareness Day, and why it's important for those affected to use everything within their reach to help them maintain a good quality of life.

Alternative Options

Staying active, exercising, practicing relaxation techniques, and preventing falls are all lifestyle changes to take when suffering from the disease.

As for diet it should be rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains that provide protective natural antioxidants. Eating a lot of dietary fiber to promote better intestinal transit is also recommended, as well as reducing saturated fatty acids, etc.

Even if natural treatments do not allow the cure of a Parkinson's disease, associated with antiparkinsonian drugs, they can lead to a reinforced comfort of life.
