Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please No advertisers, and No Information about Herbal treatments. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

BREATH TEST TO DIAGNOSE PARKINSON'S DISEASE

5th June 2013 - New research
 
Nanomedicine [2013] 8 (1) : 43-56 (U.Tisch, I.Schlesinger, R.Ionescu, M.Nassar, N.Axelrod, D.Robertman, Y. Tessler, F.Azar, A.Marmur, J.Aharon-Peretz, H.Haick)  
  
A method of diagnosing Parkinson's Disease has been developed that uses breath testing. It can identify Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease. Alveolar breath was collected from people with Parkinson's Disease or Alzheimer's Disease or who had neither. Their breath was analyzed using sensors (organically functionalized carbon nanotubes and gold nanoparticles). Statistically significant differences were compared between the different groups, which was supported by chemical analysis of the breath samples using gas chromatography combined with mass spectrometry.
 
The combinations of sensors could distinguish Parkinson's Disease from healthy states (with an accuracy of 78%), Alzheimer's Disease from healthy states (with an accuracy of 85%), and Parkinson's Disease from Alzheimer's Disease (with an accuracy of 84%). Gas chromatography combined with mass spectrometry analysis was able to show statistically significant differences in the average level of several volatile organic compounds in the breath of people with Parkinson's Disease, thus supporting the breath prints observed with the sensors. The method therefore has future potential as a cost-effective, fast and reliable means of assisting the diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease.

HYPNOSIS AS TREATMENT OF TREMORS (Kindle edition)

31st May 2013 - New book


Mike Valmar
Publisher's description : Hypnosis as a treatment for Tremors - is a excellent book, loaded with information. It will be released as a soft cover soon. This is a excellent book for anyone suffering with tremors. It starts off explaining what tremors are, what is Parkinsons, and what can be done with hypnosis as a cure. It is a smaller book, but explains everything in a easy to read format. I have kept this book short, and to the point. It is neither boring, or dull. You will better understand the different types tremors, and what causes them. You will understand the part that hypnosis plays in controlling your issue. The whole process is explained, and should answer any questions that you have about tremors, and its treatment.
