Treatments for Parkinsons Disease
Although currently there is no cure for Parkinson’s Disease most people are prescribed medication to help elevate their symptoms, however the medications still allow the progression of the disease to continue to erode their quality of life.
Here at Poseidonia Healthcare, we offer a full range of treatments for Parkinson’s Disease with no adverse side affects you normally get from Pharmaceutical medications, and we have been successful in delaying the onset of progressive symptoms. We recommend a combination of several treatments that all work on the disease in a verity of beneficial ways.
STEM CELL THERAPY & HBOT
The Pluripotent Stem Cells and Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Parkinson’s Disease has the ability to give a higher standard of living than is currently being experience by the patient, we have seen much of the signs and symptoms being reduced greatly. This also is significant to reduce the speed of further advance of the illness. Poseidonia Healthcare can offer both of these amazing treatments combined for Parkinson’s patients to give them the best chance of regaining some quality of life that they have lost.
When entering the body the stem cells are automatically sent to the areas that are in need of repair. The advantage our stem cells have over others is that ours can help the body create the exact stem cells that are required for the damaged area. With the HBOT treatment we flood the body with Oxygen, and this then assists the stem cells in repairing the damage that has already been done.
Flooding the brain with oxygen, slows neuronal degeneration, mobilises rejuvenating stem cells, and enhances angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels that nurture damaged areas). It is the combination of these two treatments, working synergistically, that provides such remarkable results.
Within a couple of weeks of treatment we have had patients no longer needing a wheel chair, they could walk with the assistance of sticks, speech has improved greatly to the point where they could hold a full debate with us regarding their favourite sports teams that they had been unable to do for years. Being able to lift themselves out of a chair with little or no assistance thus allowing more independence
Parkinsons Disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Tremors are common, but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement.
In the early stages of Parkinsons Disease, your face may show little or no expression. Your arms may not swing when you walk. Your speech may become soft or slurred. Parkinsons Disease symptoms worsen as your condition progresses over time. Although Parkinsons Disease can’t be cured, medications and new treatments might significantly improve your symptoms.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinsons Disease signs and symptoms can be different for everyone. Early signs may be mild and go unnoticed. Symptoms often begin on one side of your body and usually remain worse on that side, even after symptoms begin to affect both sides.
Parkinsons signs and symptoms may include:
- Tremor. A tremor, or shaking, usually begins in a limb, often your hand or fingers. You may a rub your thumb and forefinger back-and-forth, known as a pill-rolling tremor. Your hand may tremor when it’s at rest.
- Slowed movement (bradykinesia). Over time, Parkinsons Disease may slow your movement, making simple tasks difficult and time-consuming. Your steps may become shorter when you walk. It may be difficult to get out of a chair. You may drag your feet as you try to walk.
- Rigid muscles. Muscle stiffness may occur in any part of your body. The stiff muscles can be painful and limit your range of motion.
- Impaired posture and balance. Your posture may become stooped, or you may have balance problems as a result of Parkinsons Disease.
- Loss of automatic movements. You may have a decreased ability to perform unconscious movements, including blinking, smiling or swinging your arms when you walk.
- Speech changes. You may speak softly, quickly, slur or hesitate before talking. Your speech may be more of a monotone rather than with the usual inflections.
- Writing changes. It may become hard to write, and your writing may appear small.
The symptoms of Parkinsons Disease usually develop gradually and are mild at first. There are many different symptoms associated with Parkinsons Disease. But the order in which these develop and their severity is different for each individual. It’s unlikely that a person with Parkinsons Disease would experience all or most of these.
In Parkinsons Disease, certain nerve cells (neurons) in the brain gradually break down or die. Many of the symptoms are due to a loss of neurons that produce a chemical messenger in your brain called dopamine. When dopamine levels decrease, it causes abnormal brain activity, leading to symptoms of Parkinsons Disease.
Although it is known that Parkinsons Disease is caused due to the death of dopamine secreting neurons in the brain, the exact cause of this damage is still unknown. It is believed that environment and genetics play a role. Certain medications, toxins and other diseases can produce symptoms, similar to Parkinsons Disease, and then it is known as secondary Parkinsonism, which may be reversible.
The cause of Parkinsons Disease is unknown, but several factors appear to play a role, including:
- Your genes. Researchers have identified specific genetic mutations that can cause Parkinsons Disease. But these are uncommon except in rare cases with many family members affected by Parkinsons Disease. However, certain gene variations appear to increase the risk of Parkinsons Disease but with a relatively small risk of Parkinsons Disease for each of these genetic markers.
- Environmental triggers. Exposure to certain toxins or environmental factors may increase the risk of later Parkinsons Disease, but the risk is relatively small.
Researchers have also noted that many changes occur in the brains of people with Parkinsons Disease, although it’s not clear why these changes occur. These changes include:
- The presence of Lewy bodies. Clumps of specific substances within brain cells are microscopic markers of Parkinsons Disease. These are called Lewy bodies, and researchers believe these Lewy bodies hold an important clue to the cause of Parkinsons Disease.
- Alpha-synuclein is found within Lewy bodies. Although many substances are found within Lewy bodies, scientists believe an important one is the natural and widespread protein called alpha-synuclein (a-synuclein). It’s found in all Lewy bodies in a clumped form that cells can’t break down. This is currently an important focus among Parkinsons Disease researchers.
Diagnosis for Parkinson’s disease
No specific test exists to diagnose Parkinsons Disease. Your doctor trained in nervous system conditions (neurologist) will diagnose Parkinsons Disease based on your medical history, a review of your signs and symptoms, and a neurological and physical examination. Your doctor may suggest a specific single-photon emission computerized tomography SPECT scan called a dopamine transporter (DAT) scan. Although this can help support the suspicion that you have Parkinsons Disease, it is your symptoms and neurologic examination that ultimately determine the correct diagnosis. Most people do not require a DAT scan.
Your doctor may order lab tests, such as blood tests, to rule out other conditions that may be causing your symptoms.
Imaging tests such as MRI, CT, ultrasound of the brain, and PET scans may also be used to help rule out other disorders. Imaging tests aren’t particularly helpful for diagnosing Parkinsons Disease.
In addition to your examination, your doctor may give you carbidopa-levodopa (Rytary, Sinemet, others), a Parkinsons Disease medication. You must be given a sufficient dose to show the benefit, as low doses for a day or two aren’t reliable. Significant improvement with this medication will often confirm your diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease.
Sometimes it takes time to diagnose Parkinsons Disease. Doctors may recommend regular follow-up appointments with neurologists trained in movement disorders to evaluate your condition and symptoms over time and diagnose Parkinsons Disease.
TREATMENTS FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE
Here at Poseidonia Healthcare, we offer a full range of treatments for Parkinsons Disease, here are a few benefits of the more popular treatments:
Stem Cell Therapy
Our Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapy can be administered in one of two ways. The first technique is to place our Pluripotent Stem Cells into a specific joint, tissue or section of the body where it is required to help the healing and renewal of damaged organs or tissues. The second technique involves administering Stem Cells via intravenous insertion. Once you have been treated with the Pluripotent Stem Cells the healing and repair of the damaged organs begin. Rejuvenation effects will be noticed within 10 days of having received the treatment. Depending on the seriousness of your illness, several applications may be required to receive the expected results. Stem Cell Therapy reviews show that our treatments are at the leading edge of all Stem Cell Therapies available. The Stem Cell Therapy cost is at a price that most people can overcome. Reach out to us for further information or a free consultation with regards to your specific issues and needs.
Ozone Therapy is also considered a part of the new frontier in rehabilitation and in the treatment of Parkinson’s symptoms. Ozone Therapy is effective for both activation of the cerebral microcirculation and increasing energy production by neurons, as recent studies have shown. As well as this, it has been shown to have a proven anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic action, improve microcirculation, increase the production of cellular energy, activate the mitochondrial antioxidant system and facilitate the elimination of cell catabolites.
Thinking Difficulties: You may experience cognitive problems (dementia) and thinking difficulties. These usually occur in the later stages of Parkinson’s disease. Such cognitive problems aren’t very responsive to medications.
Sleep Problems and Sleep Disorders: People with Parkinson’s disease often have sleep problems, including waking up frequently throughout the night, waking up early or falling asleep during the day. People may also experience rapid eye movement sleep behaviour disorder, which involves acting out your dreams. Medications may help your sleep problems.
Pluripotent Stem Cells are the most effective Stem Cell Treatment for regenerative purposes to be used to date. Here at Poseidonia Healthcare we offer our patients a Stem Cell Therapy that is up to 6 times more effective in helping the human body heal itself than other Stem Cell Treatment methods. Even though we cannot always guarantee a Stem Cell cure, we often see very strong remissions from serious chronic illnesses and other conditions.
A major reason for this is that Pluripotent Stem Cells can become any of the 220 types of cells in the human body.
Exercising may increase your muscle strength, flexibility and balance. Exercise can also improve your well-being and reduce depression or anxiety..
Your doctor may suggest you work with a physical therapist to learn an exercise program that works for you. You may also try exercises such as walking, swimming, gardening, dancing, water aerobics or stretching.
Parkinson’s disease can disturb your sense of balance, making it difficult to walk with a normal gait. Exercise may improve your balance.
Benefits of Embryonic Stem Cells
for those with Parkinson’s Disease
tem cells have the potential to develop into every kind of cell found in the body. This means that stem cells can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including Parkinson’s, where new cells can be used to repair and replace damaged tissue.
Our Scientist’s are developing stem cells into dopamine-producing nerve cells – the type of brain cells affected in Parkinson’s.
Continuous progress is being made towards cell replacement therapies for Parkinson’s. Stem Cells are created from a person with early-onset Parkinson’s.
Stem cells from people with Parkinson’s can be used to better understand how changes in DNA can affect dopamine-producing nerve cells.
A 2003 MORI poll showed that around 70% of the British public support the use of human embryos for medical research, to find treatments for serious diseases and for fertility research.
