Parkinson’s disease affects over one million Americans and ten million people worldwide. Every year, approximately 60,000 people are diagnosed with this condition. Men are 1.5 times more likely to develop Parkinson’s than women. This can be a very debilitating disease. The cause of Parkinson’s is still not known. Researchers believe it is a combination of genetic and environmental factors. There are numerous ways you can help yourself if you have Parkinson’s and there is currently a great deal of research being conducted to find a cure. The most common treatment for Parkinson’s disease is the levodopa/carbidopa RX drug combination which is available from online Canadian pharmacy. When this RX drug is consumed into the body, it is converted to dopamine and therefore replaces that which is lost naturally in the body. Other Parkinsons medications and drugs include Dostinex, Kemadrin, Parlodel and Mirapex and are all prescription only RX drugs which can only be prescribed by a medical professional such as your doctor.
Diagnosis: It often takes years before a person is finally diagnosed with Parkinson’s. A doctor will perform neurological testing and evaluate the history of the patient. As of yet there are no specific diagnostic tests for the disease. There is great effort being put forth to create a specific test. In the evaluation, a doctor will look for the following; limb stiffness, arm tremors and how quickly you can regain your balance. Testing can also include specialized imaging tests such as brain scanning.
Anyone suffering from this disease must be under strict medical supervision and should not take any supplements without consulting your doctor.
Multivitamin and multimineral products used in conjunction with accessories listed in the table can help reduce or slow the development of symptoms, particularly if you are in the early stages of the disease. Results can be seen in about eight weeks, but the supplements should be used long term. They can be used singly or in combination, but only after consulting your doctor. Some – such as vitamin B6 – may react adversely with conventional drugs for Parkinson’s disease.
