8 Common Treatments for Parkinson’s Disease


Parkinson’s disease is a long-term degenerative disease which affects the central nervous system. To date, there is no cure for the condition, but there are medications and therapies available to address some of the symptoms and improve quality of life for patients.

Here are eight of the main drugs and therapies used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease according to the Mayo Clinic:

Levodopa is a naturally occurring chemical which can enter the brain and be converted to dopamine when combined with carbidopa. The carbidopa also prevents the levodopa from converting into dopamine before it enters the brain.

The is one of the most effective treatments for Parkinson’s although after long-term use, the effects start to fluctuate.

Some people may experience side effects such as nausea, feeling lightheaded, and making sudden involuntary  movements.

    My husband was diagnosed of Parkinsons disease 7 years ago, when he was 49. He had a stooped posture, tremors, right arm does not move and also a pulsating feeling in his body. He was placed on Senemet for 8 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet, during this time span he was also diagnosed with dementia. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with reality. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from NEWLIFE HERBAL CLINIC, his symptoms totally declined over a 3 weeks use of the Newlife Parkinsons disease natural herbal formula. He is now almost 57 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed! (Visit their website www . newlifeherbalclinic . com)

  4. My wife, 68, is victim of multiple disease for a long time. Hearing deficient at child hood, lost right ear 40 years back through stapedectomy. In the left ear she has reached 90 db+ loss and is moving towards total deafness. Other old ailments are spondylosis, Arthritis, which are fairly successfully handled by me through acupressure, but neither her kyfosis nor lordosis. Both our daughters have been through divorce adding a terrible mental blow which she never recovered from. Lately A pace maker was implanted 2 years back. Last additions are a brain clot, some attropy and perkinson’s disease some three months back. She is at present treated with Syndopa 110, three times a day along with Pacetane, citicoline, piracitam and a battery of vitamines including Methylecobalamin,a sleeping pill and cordaron 100 for heart. Though trembling of lips has stopped and shaking of hands has reduced,lot of problems have appeared in mouth, throat and occational insomnia. I clearly feel that she is sinking and gradually being more and more dependant on me. Doctor visit is a regular thing for us. Will herbal remedies help? Some one please suggest.
