Human Brain is one of the most complex and also one of the most useful organs. Our brain is single-handedly responsible for all of our actions, be that as simple as clapping or for a doctor to treat their patients. But sometimes our brain tends to function on their own. And that neurodegenerative disorder is called Parkinson’s disease.
Mainly the people of aged 60 or above are diagnosed by this disease but rare cases are also coming forward. The patients are more likely to live 10 to 20 years after being diagnosed if not treated well.
What is Parkinson’s Disease?
To understand this disease, we have to know how it occurs and later how it can be cured. The nerve cells and neurons are responsible for our bodily function. These neurons are produced by a neurotransmitter called dopamine. To put it simply, Parkinson’s disease mainly attacks the nerve cells of the brain, which is called the basal ganglia. These nerve cells are responsible for body function. Thus, when Parkinson’s happens our body starts to react on their own.
There many symptoms of this disease. At first, you probably won’t even notice any symptoms. These early symptoms are mild and often begin on one side of the body, like feeling tired or slightly shaking of hands or other body parts. Later on your speaking ability will be affected and so on.
The primary symptoms are:
- Movement Difficulty or Tremor- Even though the uncontrollable shaking starts at hands or arms, your jaw or feet can get affected too.
- Depression- You may suddenly feel upset or down without any reason. Treating depression can help with the other stages of this disorder.
- Facial Expression- Due to changes in the nervous system, the facial muscles becomes uncontrollable too.
- Sleeping Hazard- Almost 76% of Parkinson’s patients have felt daytime sleepiness.
- Gait- The patient may face some posture changes so that they lean forward when they are walking.
- Sense of Smell- This is definitely an early sign of Parkinson’s.
- Stiff Muscles- Apart from uncontrollable body movement, the rigidness of muscles is also a symptom of this disorder.
The secondary symptoms:
- Cramped handwriting
- Too much sweating
- Voice problems
- Cognitive impairment
- Stooped posture
- Being stuck in place
- Trouble having sexual desire
- Memory problem
What Are The Preventions?
There is no definitive treatment for this disorder because the actual cause of Parkinson’s is unknown. But still, there are some homely treatments which can help soothe the symptoms greatly. Mainly maintaining a healthy lifestyle and eating a balanced diet is ideal for a Parkinson’s patient.
Ways to reduced Parkinson’s disease:
Staying Active: Working our regularly is always good for a fit lifestyle. And in this situation doing any kind of physical activity such as, yoga, cardio, walking, running, or going to the gym helps to reduces anxiety and depression.
Self Care: Doing medications, going out, enjoying people’s company is all part of a treatment. You can join support groups to meet people who are in your situation. Or you can also turn to your family members or friends for support.
Food for preventing Parkinson’s disease:
Antioxidants- One laboratory study has found that antioxidants help offset oxidative stress and cellular damage. And there are many foods that contain them. Such as,
- Kidney beans
- Bell papers
- Dark chocolate
- Red wine
Fava Beans- Fava beans are especially helpful in Parkinson’s because they contain levodopa. This is the same ingredient that is used in some drugs to treat Parkinson’s. So fava beans can easily replace a prescription treatment.
Surgery- When all of the above remedies are not working in favor, a surgery becomes mandatory. There are quite a few surgical options for Parkinson’s disease. Deep Brain Stimulation is one of those surgeries. A device is implanted by an operation to stimulate the targeted regions of the brain. After the surgery, the patient will see improvements with their rigidity, tremor, and other problems.
Treatment with PEMF Device- Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy or PEMF is one of the most powerful ways to treat Parkinson’s. PEMF is mainly used for tumor but It has been proved that it is also useful for many chronic disorders or pain. Even though this therapy exists for a decade now, people still don’t know about it befits. There is a lot of questions involving its effectiveness or how does it work.
Basically, PEMF is a biohacking tool that uses electromagnetic fields to heal one’s illness. There many tiny cells in our body that evolves our skin, organs, bones, etc. These tiny cells exchange potassium, sodium, calcium in our body with the help of positive and negative charges. The problem occurs when these charges stop working properly. A PEMF device restores these charges in the cell, to speed up the tissue recovery.
Just like people have different personalities, our bodies also have different responses to electromagnetic fields. A powerful and PEMF device can be set to an individual’s needs. The negative and positive flow of charges across these cells creates electrical currents. A stimulated cell triggers an electrical current, producing electrical pulses. These pulses are good for regular body functions. And one the other hand, an irregular electrical current will lead to illness. PEMF will help to restore this disruption and restore the cell.
Not only in diseases, but PEMF therapy is also useful in various other regions.
- Dry skin
- Hair loss
There are many verities of PEMF devices available, so choosing the right one can be a struggle. Only by research, you can get the best device for you. Online there are many websites that offer a great price for them. PEMF therapy is effective, efficient, and also comfortable to use.
