What Is Parkinson's Disease
Parkinson's disease is a progressive nervous system
disorder that affects movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting
with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Tremors are common, but the
disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement.
Parkinsonís disease affects nerve cells, or neurons, in a part of
the brain that controls muscle movement. In Parkinsonís, neurons that make a
chemical called dopamine die or do not work properly. Dopamine normally
sends signals that help coordinate your movements. Parkinsonís is a disease that
causes a progressive loss of nerve cell function in the part of the brain
that controls muscle movement. The effects of Parkinson's Disease get worse over
time and homeopathy can be used to relief of symptoms, based on the best
matching remedy for the person's presentation of symptoms.
