Parkinson’s Disease affects almost 200,000 Americans every year.
Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological disorder of the central nervous system that effects signals to the muscles of the body and significantly interferes with daily living activities.
Traditional treatments include dopamine boosters, antidepressants, and anti-tremor medications. Some new findings are showing that integrating other therapies, like massage therapy, with these pharmacological approaches can be of benefit to daily functioning for these people.
A survey done by the Dept. of Neurology at the University Medical Center-Hamburg furthered the claim that anti-Parkinson drugs are incomplete and not as effective as when combined with other rehabilitative therapy and physiotherapy including massage.
Simply put, traditional therapy can only do so much for the pain and symptoms that accompany this disease. While it does not change the progression of the disease, massage has a direct, immediate effect and can help fill in the holes in traditional healthcare protocols.

My husband was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's disease at 67. His symptoms were shuffling of feet, slurred speech, low volume speech, degradation of handwriting, horrible driving skills, and his right arm is held at 45 degree angle. He was placed on Sinemet for 7 months and then Sifrol and rotigotine were introduced which replaced the Sinemet but he had to stop due to side effects. We tried every shot available but nothing was working. There has been little if any progress in finding a reliable treatment, I quit my meds due to side effects. Our care provider introduced us to Kycuyu Health Clinic Parkinson’s herbal treatment. The treatment is a miracle. My husband has recovered significantly! Visit kycuyuhealthclinic. co m
Thanks for helping me understand that traditional treatments can use dopamine boosters, anti-depressants, and anti-tremor medications while new therapies are being researched as well for that kind of illness. Hopefully, we can get the best treatment after taking my grandfather to a neurolgist that we can find this year. It's because he has been showing signs and symptoms of this kind of issue for the past few months now.

I was diagnosed of Parkinson’s disease. After years on medications, symptoms worsened with tremors on my right hand, numbness and tingling, muscle weakness and loss of speech. Fortunately last year, i learnt about Health Herbs Clinic and their Parkinson’s disease alternative treatment ( healthherbsclinic . com ), the Parkinson’s disease treatment made a great difference, most of my symptoms including tremors, weakness and others gradually disappeared. I improved greatly over the 6 months treatment, it’s been a years since the treatment, i have no symptoms. I have a very good quality of life and a supportive family!
