Description:
Parkinson’s disease is a slow, progressive disorder of the central nervous system. If left untreated, the disease progresses over fifteen years to severe incapacitation. The cause is yet unknown. However, an imbalance of two brain chemicals, dopamine and acetylcholine, could be the cause of the disease.

Symptoms:

  • Slowness of movement
  • Muscular rigidity
  • Resting tremor (trembling at rest or on movement)
  • Postural instability (shuffling, unbalanced gait, which progresses into uncontrollable tiny, running steps to prevent falling)

Suggestions:

It is imperative to consult a doctor for medication that will stop the development of the disease.
