How To Protect Yourself From Parkinsons Diseases

Parkinson’s Disease Is Serious

Having serious diseases like parkinsons diseases is not an easy thing to deal with. This type of disease is considered to be a degenerative condition affecting the nervous system of a person. The disease will eventually result in total loss of mobility within the course of 10 to 25 years. The sad part about Parkinson’s disease is that it is still not certain on what causes the said disease.

Those who suffer from this disease would start to show signs when they reached the age of 50 or 70. Even though it is observed that the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease is troublesome and can lead to a total loss of mobility in the person, it is not likely that they die because of the disease itself.

Prevent Parkinson’s Disease

No one would ever dream to have any disease especially that which is Parkinson’s. Having this kind of disease might not kill you right away but it will let you suffer gradually as your mobility will fly away from you. Everyone should observe certain ways in order to protect themselves against parkinsons diseases.

It is important that people would ensure their health and take moderate amounts of Vitamin E to help protect themselves from Parkinson’s. There are anti-oxidants that have been found to be significant in the prevention of the disease. Anti-oxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene are showing results that tell of their role in the prevention of the disease.

Eating the right kind of foods to keep the body healthy has always been a key to better health and prevention of diseases and sickness. Foods rich in Vitamin E are the likes of nuts, olives, vegetable oils, seeds and avocados. But even if some synthetic vitamin E supplements tell you of their vitamin content, it is still not able to give the right amount of vitamin to help protect you from parkinsons diseases.

Treatment Vs Prevention

As much as possible, it is best to prevent acquiring the disease rather than having to worry on what treatments will work. But in cases when the person already has parkinsons diseases symptoms, there are some drugs that can help decrease them. Those who are diagnosed to have Parkinson’s disease are mostly not given the drugs in the early stages of the disease. Only when the symptoms or effect of the disease are already starting to affect the daily routines of the person is when the drugs are prescribed.

However, some experts are saying that being given the prescribed drugs in the early stage of the disease should be able to slow down the progression of the disease.

Aside from drugs, surgery is also an option for those patients who are not fans of medications.

Avoid Rather Than Treat

Medications and medical procedures are there to help patients deal with parkinsons diseases. But instead of just waiting for the disease before dealing with it, it is better to deal with it early on by doing things that can help prevent the occurrence of such a crippling disease.

It is never wrong to prevent diseases even before they happen than having to regret ever waiting to have to deal with it.
