How to Deal with Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease belongs to a group of conditions known as extra pyramidal symptoms and is characterized by stiffness of the muscles and continuous tremors. This is accompanied by reduced physical movement or bradykinesia and in severe cases complete loss of movement or akinesia. An individual suffering from Parkinson’s disease exhibits a combination of involuntary tremor of the limbs and muscular stiffness.
The tremors become more prominent when the patient is in a resting position and tend to disappear when he attempts to move or is asleep. The tremors are most pronounced when the patient becomes excited or is fatigued. Older patients often exhibit involuntary rapid jerking movements of the limbs and may also exhibit purposeless mastication and lip smacking movements. This is followed by impaired speech, muscle cramps, inability to move and loss of judgment.
Dealing with Parkinson’s Disease
The use of vitamin E in therapeutic doses of 800 – 3000 IU per day has proved highly beneficial for treating Parkinson’s disease. It has shown to slow down the pace of this disease and enhances the recovery process. Intake of vitamin E slows free radical damage that destroys the cells of the basal ganglia. Dietary sources of vitamin E include green leafy vegetables, whole grain products, wheat germ, eggs, milk, raw or sprouted seeds or nuts.
Essential Fatty Acids
These are required for maintaining the integrity of cell membranes that become disrupted due to Parkinson’s disease. Dietary sources of essential fatty acids include nuts, seeds and oily fish. Evening primrose oil has shown to reduce tremors caused by Parkinson’s disease and helps prevent the progression of the disease by boosting the transmission of nerve impulses. It is recommended for you to take evening primrose oil in therapeutic doses of 1500mg per day to deal with Parkinson’s disease effectively.
