Parkinsons Q & A

Bridgeway Wellness

What is Parkinson’s disease?

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects your movement. The symptoms develop and progress slowly, perhaps starting with stiffness or a barely noticeable tremor in one of your hands.

Over time, you develop additional symptoms, and they become more severe. Your tremor may become more apparent and extend from your hand. Your handwriting may change. Your speech may change or slur.

Your movements slow and your steps become shorter. You may begin to drag your feet. Eventually, your muscles become rigid, which impairs your balance.

What causes Parkinson’s disease?

Parkinson’s disease develops when the nerve cells in your brain that produce dopamine gradually break down or die. Decreased dopamine levels cause abnormal brain activity and the physical symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

The cause of Parkinson’s disease isn’t fully understood. Medical researchers are currently investigating genetic markers and Lewy bodies — microscopic clumps found on the brain cells of people who have the disease.

The risk factors for Parkinson’s disease include:

  • Aging
  • Having a family member with Parkinson’s
  • Being a man
  • Being exposed to certain herbicides and pesticides

If you’ve been diagnosed with Parkinson’s, you should consult your doctor immediately for advice on improving and maintaining your health and wellness.

How is Parkinson’s disease treated?

Unfortunately, there’s no cure for Parkinson’s disease, but with careful management, medication, and lifestyle modifications, you can live a long and healthy life.  

The team at Bridgeway Wellness Group, LLC, offers a neurorestorative treatment centered around the delivery of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) to enhance other Parkinson’s disease management techniques. NAD is the enzyme that promotes cellular energy and optimal cellular function, which is the foundation of your overall health.

Your treatment plan combines a variety of synergistic modalities aimed at improving your cellular health and functionality. NAD infusion therapy is the foundation of the treatment plans. While NAD therapy isn’t a cure for Parkinson’s, it can stimulate healthy cell function and regeneration, which may slow the progression of the disease and potentially reduce your symptoms.

To learn how NAD therapy and other synergistic treatment modalities can improve your Parkinson’s disease symptoms and overall health, call Bridgeway Wellness Center, LLC, or schedule a consultation online today.
