Parkinsons Treatment Options

Conventional Treatments

Conventional treatments include Anti cholinergic drugs like Benztropine, Procyclidine and Orphenodrine. Another drug Amantadine is also used, either alone, or in combination with Anti-cholinergic drugs. Another drug Levodopa and Dopamine agonists like Bromocriptine, Pergolide, Pramipexole and Ropinirole may also be prescribed. These drugs address Parkinson's at a very superficial, symptomatic level. Also, none of them are known to cure Parkinson's.

Moreover, they are more often than not, accompanied by a fleet of painful and unpleasant side-effects. Anti cholinergic drugs may cause dryness of the mouth, constipation, urine-retention and blurred vision. They may also cause confusion and hallucinations in elderly patients.

Side-effects of Amantadine may include restlessness, confusion, skin rashes, Edema and disturbances in the rhythm of the Heart. It offers no more than transient relief.

The most common initial side-effects of Levodopa include nausea, vomiting, Postural Hypotension (decrease in blood-pressure with regard to change in position), and occasionally, Cardiac Arrhythmia (disturbances in the rhythm of the Heart).

Surgical Treatment:

Destructive neurosurgical procedures were used to treat Parkinson's for several years, but their use decreased with the advent of levodopa drug. These surgical procedures entailed complications like brain hemorrhage and visual-fluid defects. Such surgical procedures have been replaced by high-frequency stimulation of a selected location in the brain, using an implanted electrode and stimulator.

Other therapies being studied at present are botox injections, gene therapy, and neural transplantation where cells producing dopamine are transplanted in the midbrain.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation has shown some promising results, and is being studied extensively. Clinical trials for the transplantation of stem cells that produce dopamine are underway.

Symptomatic treatment in the form of speech therapy for voice changes, and yoga, tai chi, nutrient supplements, exercises and qigong for muscle functioning are also quite popular, and have shown fair results.

Complementary Natural care

Parkinson's disease (PD) cannot be treated with over the counter homeopathy, Ayurveda or Supplements in most countries. No Natural products are approved by the FDA for the treatment of PD. Natural products at best can be used to promote general Nerve and Brain Health.

Our ground breaking therapeutic kits are a combination of Advanced Nutraceuticals, Standardized herbal extracts and bio-energetic resonance homeopathies that are traditionally believed to balance the nervous system.

Our complementary natural approach is traditionally believed to work by:
  • Balancing Dopamine production in the Brain
  • Improving concentration and cognitive functions.
  • Improving circulation
  • Encouraging optimal structure and functions of the brain
  • Regulating neurotransmitters
