Insights and therapeutics: Parkinson’s disease

\r\n No cure has been identified to Parkinson’s disease, but use of drugs can slow down the progression. Normally prescribed by physicians include change of life style, regular aerobic exercise and prescribed therapeutic supplement. It is noted that people will have beneficial effect who are taking co-enzyme Q10 during their initial stage of disease. It is unclear how genetical changes cause Parkinson disease or influence the risk of developing the disorder. Some gene mutations(alterations) such as LRRK 2, PARK 7, PINK 1, PRKN disturb the cell mechanism that breaks down undesired proteins in neurons which are responsible for dopamine production. Hence, undegraded proteins accumulate, resulting in death of vital nerve cells and subsequently lowers the level of dopamine production. In most cases of Parkinson disease, protein deposits called Lewy bodies. It is unclear whether Lewy bodies play a key role in killing nerve cells or just part of the cells which are responsible to the disease. Yoga, massage, acupuncture, meditation, music or art therapy, alexander technique is also regarding as best methods to control neurological disorders particularly Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s and neuropsychiatric. Tetrabenazine, neuroleptics, mirtazapine can be taken to for treating chorea.
