Parkinson’s disease can affect anyone, regardless of social or economic differences. More than 50,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease every year. Medical world is struggling to treat this deadly disease.

Ayurvedic Cure for Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is a common condition of the brain that affects middle-aged men and women. It continues to grow with time even though the symptoms may appear to be less with medications. It is still a mystery to the medical world since there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease at [resent and it is very hard to prevent it. Researches state that men are affected more than women and white men fall easier victims than people of other ethnic groups.

Parkinson’s disease is not new to human history as there are evidences that it existed thousands of years ago. The symptoms and potential therapies have been mentioned in ancient texts of Ayurveda. It names it as “Kampavata”, a neurological degenerative disorder, commonly found in elderly people. The first Chinese medical text Nei Jing also has mentioned it about 2,500 years ago.

Symptoms of PD
Parkinson’s disease starts with a tremor beginning on one side of the body, frequently in hand, slowly affecting other parts of the body. The disease affects the arms, legs, feet, jaw, face, eyelids, and tongue and after sometime, the tremor can be experienced in all limbs and on both sides of the body. The patients affected with PD may find it difficult to walk, talk, or even carry out their daily chores.

Causes of Parkinson’s disease
Parkinson’s disease is a disorder in the brain control, caused by loss of brain cells. A particular region of the brain is affected due to shortage of dopamine, a brain chemical which is responsible for neurotransmission.

Recent researches state that environmental factors, genetic factors, free radicals, age-related wearing down of brain cells and some chemicals reactions are some of the reasons for Parkinson’s disease.

Ayurvedic remedies for PD

1) Fruits and vegetables
Consuming more fruits and vegetables can help the Parkinson’s disease patients to build up anti-oxidants to reduce the symptoms. Fresh fruits and vegetables contain glutathione and antioxidants. Berries, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and cabbage are highly recommended.

2) Oil massaging, fomenting and cleansing are the main treatments of Ayurveda for this neurological disorder. Ayurveda prescribes medicated oils such as ashwagandha (withania somnifera) and bala (sida cordifolia). They rejuvenate the nervous system.

3) A certain herb called atmagupta, locally known as Kappikachu, (Mucuna Pruriens) has been very effective for PD. It has been used in Ayurveda for many centuries, only recently it has drawn the attention of the medical world.

4) Rigidity and low performance of nerves associated with Parkinson’s disease is treated with nerve tonics such as Jatamansi and Shanka pushpin.

5) Ayurveda is more particular about elimination of toxins from the body to balance the three humors. Stagnation of toxins increases “vata” Modern physicians of Ayurveda have found that ingestion of aluminum in Indian cooking is an important factor in causing PD and Alzheimer’s disease. Hence they suggest avoiding the use of aluminum cookware or deodorants containing it. Lead is also another element that affects brain cells.

my mother in law always says that oil bath is a must, otherwise the head may have to be treated with oil later, she is not much educated, but she is wiser than the wise in such matters.

I am from Nevada, USA.. I started on NewLife Clinic Parkinsons Disease Herbal formula treatment in September 2016, i read alot of positive reviews on their success rate treating Parkinsons disease through their PD Herbal formula and i immediately started on the treatment. Just 11 weeks into the Herbal formula treatment I had great improvements with speech and coordination, my hand tremors seized and the stiffed, rigid muscle had succumbed. I am unbelievably back on my feet again, this is a breakthrough for all Parkinsons sufferers, visit NewLife Herbal Clinic official website www. newlifeherbalclinic. com or email info@ newlifeherbalclinic. com.

Around age 60 I noticed that my handwriting was getting smaller and I was writing faster. I also noticed a small tremor in my right hand. The doctor went over my different symptoms and he suspected I'd either had a small stroke or the beginnings of Parkinson 's disease. After finding a neurologist and some testing I was diagnosed with the beginning stages of Parkinson’s disease. That was 4 years ago. I take Sinimet four times a day to control my symptoms, which include falling, imbalance, gait problems, swallowing difficulties, and slurring of speech,December 2017 our family doctor started me on Green House Herbal Clinic Parkinson’s Disease Herbal mixture, 5 weeks into treatment I improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case of dementia, hallucination, weakness, muscle pain or tremors. Visit Green House Herbal Clinic official website www. greenhouseherbalclinic .com. I am strong again and able to go about daily activities.‌ This Herbal Formula is Incredible!! My life is back.

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease a year ago at the age of 68. For several months I had noticed tremors in my right hand and the shaking of my right foot when I was sitting. My normally beautiful cursive writing was now small cramped printing. And I tended to lose my balance. Neurologist had me walk down the hall and said I didn’t swing my right arm. I had never noticed! I was in denial for a while as there is no history in my family of parents and five older siblings, but now accept I had classic symptoms. I was taking pramipexole (Sifrol), carbidopa/levodopa and Biperiden, 2 mg. and started physical therapy to strengthen muscles. nothing was really working to help my condition.I went off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started on parkinson’s herbal formula i ordered from Solution Health Herbal Clinic, my symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the Parkinsons disease natural herbal formula. i am now almost 70 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!!
