I Ask This Of You!

I have Parkinson's diseases and thought it would be nice to have a place where the contents of updated news is found in one place. That is why I began this blog.

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 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. I will not accept any information about Herbal treatments curing Parkinson's, dementia and etc. It will go into Spam.

This is a free site for all with no advertisements.

Thank you for visiting!

How Parkinson’s Disease Affects Your Body


In this video from Consumer Health Digest, Dr. Ron Desi talks about the basics of Parkinson’s disease and how the progressive neurodegenerative disease affects the body.
Dr. Desi explains that Parkinson’s disease usually develops in middle to late age and that the risk of the disease increases with age, typically striking people in their 60s. It’s characterized by slow, imprecise movements and tremors. The symptoms will differ from person to person, but patients often experience tremors in the limbs and the face, rigidity, and impaired balance.
The exact cause of Parkinson’s disease is unknown, but researchers think it’s a combination of environmental factors, genetics and the presence of a protein in the nerve cells called “lewy bodies.” There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, but there are treatments that can help improve quality of life and manage the symptoms of the disease.
