Atypical Parkinson's

Have you heard of Parkinson’s disease?

Well, if not then at least one acknowledges the fact that it is a serious condition. We often listen to people talking about this but never actually cared about it.

Parkinson’s disease is a crucial disease that affects the brain and thus deteriorates the quality of life. Let us learn more about it and find ways to treat it.

What is Parkinson’s Disease ?

Our brains have a certain section called the substantia nigra. The neurons of this area secrete a neurotransmitter called dopamine.

What does this dopamine do?

Dopamine regulates normal movement in the body. It is known as the reward center of the body as it makes the person experience pleasure and a sense of motivation.

In Parkinson’s disease, the dopamine levels undergo a marked alleviation, and thus the brain and its movements are gravely affected. Therefore Parkinson’s disease can be construed as a neurological disorder that progresses over time.

Now, clinically we can find two types of Parkinson’s disease. One is typical and the other one is atypical. The typical Parkinson’s disease patient presents the typical symptoms of the disease whereas an atypical patient presents other symptoms as well.

This happens because, in typical Parkinson’s disease, the section that is the substantia nigra is only affected. But in atypical Parkinson’s disease, the cells external to the substantia nigra are also affected thus the reason they show additional symptoms.

Let us find the typical and atypical symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

Signs and Symptoms of Atypical Parkinson's Disease

The early signs of Parkinson’s disease are as follows :

  • Tremors or shaking
  • Rigidity

The advanced stage of Parkinson’s disease may show presentations like :

There are chances for some of the symptoms to not be presented and also other additional symptoms to be presented. It largely depends upon the severity of the disease and the health of the patient.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Atypical Parkinson's Disease

Conventional methods of treatment for atypical Parkinson’s disease

As atypical Parkinson’s disease has additional symptoms, they usually abstain from responding to the treatment of typical Parkinson’s disease.

Parkinson’s disease is an incurable disease and the best antiparkinson medication that is prescribed is levodopa(L-dopa). Another medication that can be prescribed is bromocriptine.

Along with it, physiotherapy is advised to enhance the movement and get back to performing basic motions.In atypical Parkinson’s disease, along with medication and physiotherapy, training to improve speech, and ease the act of swallowing, counseling and psychiatric aid can be provided.These are the mainstream methods of treating Parkinson’s disease.

Role of diet and nutrition in treating Parkinson’s disease

The foods that can be used are :

  • Omega 3 foods such as soybeans, flax seed, kidney beans, oysters, etc
