Overview of Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is the degenerative disorder that affects the nervous system and its functions causing a severe health problem. You may face mild symptoms at the initial stage however, as the condition gets worse the symptoms get aggravated causing severe health problems such as shaking, tremors, anxiety, restriction in movement, and difficulty in walking or standing for a longer time. You may develop Parkinson’s disease if you had a head injury or you remain exposed to pesticides or toxic for a longer time in your life. As if now, there is no cure or treatment available for the disease however, medication suppresses the symptoms. Cells in the substantia nigra stop making dopamine, a brain chemical that helps nerve cells communicate. As these cells stop making cells and the brain doesn’t receive the messages when to move and how to react when necessary. Several medications are available in the market for the treatment PD such as levodopa, dopamine agonists, anticholinergics, amantadine, and COMT inhibitors.

    I was diagnosed 2 years ago at age 63. Symptoms were tremor in right leg, loss of handwriting ability, and soft voice. I also have difficulty rising from a seated position and have balance issues. I started out taking only Azilect, then Mirapex, and 6 months ago Sinemet. Several months ago I started falling frequently, hence the reason for Sinemet. I tried every shots available but nothing worked. In June 2018, my neurologist and I decided to go with natural treatment and was introduced to Natural Herbal Gardens natural organic Parkinson’s Herbal formula, i had a total decline of symptoms with this treatment, the Tremor, falling frequently, stiffness, body weakness, balance issues, depression and others has subsided. This treatment is a breakthrough for all suffering from Parkinson’s, don’t give up Hope. Keep Sharing the Awareness, herbs are truly gift from God.

    I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease nearly 4 years ago, at 51. I had a stooped posture, tremors, muscle, sleeplessness, slow movement, stiffless. I was placed on 7 months of sinemet and then Rotigotine and Sifro was introduced which replaced the Sinemet but I had to stop due to side effects. This natural herbal treatment totally reversed my Parkinsons disease.
