Parkinsonism Symptoms and Treatment
For sufferers of Parkinsonism, its symptoms and treatment can be difficult and overwhelming. Parkinsonism refers to symptoms of Parkinson Disease. Most often, it results in difficulty of movement, shaking tremors, stiffness, etc., in addition to the symptoms of a pre-existing, secondary condition
Understanding the typical symptoms of Parkinsonism is an important first step. Symptoms the sufferer usually experiences include:
- Muscle stiffness
- Speech changes
- Shaking tremors, esp. of the hands
- Difficulty making facial movements
- Slowed movements, esp. walking
These symptoms arise due to a lack of dopamine production in the brain. While traditional treatments are usually symptomatic, those seeking natural treatments can take steps to improve their body’s natural healing process. All true healing is self-healing. With the appropriate use of botanicals, nutraceuticals, and Homeopathic remedies you can help your body support its self-defense system.
Eat foods that promote healing
Certain foods can relieve uncomfortable symptoms associated with Parkinsonism. These include foods high in antioxidants and low in unhealthy fats. Raw vegetables and fruits, cold-pressed oils, and fresh juices offer healing antioxidants. What’s more, foods high in fiber reduce constipation, while healthy fats and omega-3’s can improve neurological health.
Avoid foods that can hinder healing
Eating foods that promote healing is vital, but avoiding foods that impede healing is also an essential step in treatment. Processed foods, added sugars, sweeteners, and alcohol are known to hinder the relief of symptoms associated with Parkinsonism. Furthermore, excessive protein and food allergens can also aggravate symptoms.
Taking proper supplements
Supplements that promote a healthier body can help mitigate the suffering caused by Parkinsonism. Try Coenzyme Q10, Vitamins C, D, and E, and Omega-3’s. Consider certain essential oils can also help relieve symptoms, e.g., lavender.
It is always wise to receive support from well-trained healthcare professionals in case you need further guidance. Seeking out a physician trained in integrative medicine is a great idea when you’re suffering from a condition such as Parkinsonism.
When carefully and accurately prescribed by a well-trained, Homeopathic doctor, Homeopathic, herbal and nutritional remedies can provide significant relief for many ailments.
