World Parkinson's Day 11 April
  • This day is meant to raise awareness about Parkinson's disease, which is a progressive nervous system disorder.

Details:

  • Parkinson's disease causes problems with movement and results in stiffness and slow movement.
  • The disease is such that it progresses gradually, beginning with minor tremors in hand.
  • In the early stages, the disease makes your face unable to show any expression.
  • Arms stop swinging as you walk and speech becomes soft or slurred.
  • The disease worsens as the condition progresses over time.

Causes of Parkinson's disease:

  • When nerve cells in the brain begin to break down or die, it may result in Parkinson's disease.
  • Decrease in levels of dopamine - because of loss of neurons that produce these chemical messengers - may result in symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
  • Lack of sufficient dopamine may be the cause of delayed or slow movements.
  • Genetic mutations may be possible for Parkinson's disease.
  • Exposure to certain toxic or environmental factors may also cause this disease.

Tips for prevention:

  • Ditch regular consumption of junk and processed foods, and switch to a healthy and nutritious diet.
  • Foods like leafy green veggies, fruits, protein-rich foods, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and good fats can help in improving brain health and reduce risk of Parkinson's disease.
  • People who exercise regularly are definitely at lower risk of developing Parkinson's.
  • A healthy sleep is one of the most essential prerequisites of Parkinson's disease.
