Parkinson's disease is a brain disorder that deteriorates over the time. It causes nerve cells in a piece of the brain called the substantia nigra to die. This part of the brain is significant for controlling movement. That is the reason individuals with Parkinson’s frequently shaken or shows other unusual movements. Medicines can assist with side effects, yet it is absolutely impossible to slow or turn reverse the condition. Nobody knows exactly why an individual gets Parkinson's. It's likely because of a mix of things, including genes and exposure to specific toxins. It's basically impossible to anticipate who will get it or why. It's rare for Parkinson's to run in families. Most of the time, it appears to happen randomly. All kinds of people get Parkinson's disease. It's 1.5 times more common in men. It's additionally more common in older people. Something like 4 out of each 100 cases occurs in individuals under age 50. Every year, around 60,000 individuals in the U.S. figure out that they have Parkinson's. Around 1 million individuals in the U.S. furthermore, 10 million all over the planet have this condition.


The four primary symptoms of Parkinson's are connected with movement:

• Tremors or shaking of hands, arms, legs, jaw, or head

• Stiffness of arms, legs, and trunk

• Slowed development

• Trouble with balance and coordination

Depression or other emotional changes

• Trouble chewing, swallowing, or talking

• Trouble dozing

• Constipation.

Parkinson's is a progressive illness. That implies that an individual’s side effects normally deteriorate over the time. The side effects of Parkinson's additionally fluctuate a great deal starting with one individual then onto the next. How quickly it worsens and how extreme it gets can change a lot, as well. Early side effects might be easy to ignore or dismiss. They could begin on one side of your body, appearing on the opposite side only later.


Parkinson's affects nerve cells in your cerebrum that make a chemical called dopamine. Accordingly, levels of the chemical fall. Specialists for the most part start treatment with levodopa (L-dopa). Then the person cerebrum transforms it into dopamine. Yet, it can make sickness to their stomach, so they'll likely take it with another medication called carbidopa to control these secondary effects. The mix drug is called carbidopalevodopa (Parcopa, Rytary, Sinemet).

On the off chance that medication doesn't function admirably enough, specialist might propose Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). In DBS, specialist inserts electrodes somewhere deep in the cerebrum. A device associated with them conveys electrical pulses. Those pulses can assist with controlling the tremors brought about by Parkinson's.

Food and exercise

Eating good food varieties can help an individual to feel better. It might also help with specific Parkinson's side effects, like constipation. Getting normal activity will likewise support strength, adaptability, and balance. Specialist can suggest a physical therapist or good exercise program.

Along with the regular clinical consideration, these methodologies might help with state of mind, energy, and how they feel day to day:

• Massage

• Yoga

• Meditation

There's currently no cure for Parkinson's disease, but treatments are available to help relieve the symptoms and maintain an individual’s quality of life. These treatments include: supportive therapies, such as physiotherapy, medication.
