Herbal Remedies for Parkinson's diseases - Stages, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Treatment

Parkinson's diseases

A neurodegenerative disorder which effects the movement of the person is known as Parkinson's diseases. In this particular disorder, there is deterioration of motor function due to lack of dopamine producing brain cells which effect the movement of the person. The symptoms are progressive in nature and eventually the person becomes dependent on others for all the activities in the life as his body is unable to perform any function due to lack of movement. This problem cannot be diagnosed at the initial stage as there are no significant symptoms and person don't even know that he is suffering from any kind of this problem.


Stage 1

It is normal and there is no strong effect on person health

Stage 2

It gradually starts progressing in which the symptoms gets worsen and the person finds difficulty in carrying out daily activities

Stage 3

In this the individual finds difficulty in moving and often loses balance. This is a mid-stage. Movement of the individual becomes slow and the person often falls

Stage 4

This stage requires assistance. The person needs help in walking and doing other activities.

Stage 5

This is the last stage and the person is completely dependent on others and needs full time assistance in every work


The symptoms are divided into two parts:-

Primary Symptoms

Primary symptoms includes:-

  • Trembling of fingers, hands, arms,
  • Stiffness of limbs and trunk
  • Muscle aches and pain
  • Difficulty in balancing the body
  • Fall while walking

Secondary Symptoms

Secondary symptoms includes:-

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Increased sweating
  • Unable to smell things
  • Memory loss and dementia


As of now, there is no special way to diagnose this particular problem in the initial stage due to similarities of symptoms with other movement disorders.

A neurologist can diagnose this problem on the basis of patient’s medical history and symptoms.

These are some test in which scales are used to measure mental capacity, behavior mood, daily living activities and motor function.

This measurement is considered helpful in checking the progression of the symptoms.


Till today, there is no treatment found for curing this particular disorder. However some therapies are there which can delay the symptoms for some time. These therapies increase the amount of dopamine in the brain either by substituting dopamine or prolong the effect of dopamine by inhibiting its breakdown.

Another way is implanting the electrodes inside the brain to simulate the areas of the brain involved in motor functioning. It is known as deep brain stimulation.

These treatment methods can only subside the symptoms for some time and there is no permanent cure.

But as we know the fact that to every problem there is some solution. Similarly to this very problem there is another treatment method which has never been introduced before. This treatment method is formulated by Dr. Vikram Chauhan, founder of Planet Ayurveda using natural herbs and herb extracts. These herbal remedies are formulated in such a way so as to decrease the symptoms and to cut the problem from its roots.
