Parkinson's is a neurological condition that causes uncontrolled or unintended movements such as shaking, difficulty with balance, stiffness, etc. It is a progressive disease, and the symptoms get worsen over time.
Although there is no specific cause for this disease, some studies suggest that it is caused by losing the nerve cell (produces chemical dopamine) part of the brain.
Common signs of Parkinson's include:
Tremors in hands, legs, jaws
Stiffness in arms, legs
Problem with balance
Change in voice
Loss of ability to smell
Difficulty swallowing and chewing
This disease is difficult to prevent as the causes are still unknown. However, one can reduce risks by following a healthy diet, exercising, and consuming an antioxidant-rich diet.
