The Parkinson’s Disease Protocol

Parkinson’s Disease is a disorder of brain. Mostly, it causes stiffness, shaking, and trouble with balance, walking and coordination. Mostly, the symptoms of this disease start appearing gradually and worsens over the course of time. The progression of this disease is associated with trouble in both talking and walking. Behavioral and mental changes, depression, sleep problems, difficulty in memorizing things and fatigue may also occur. By the way, Jodi Knapp’s eBook “The Parkinson’s Disease Protocol” can help you to manage this disease.

Both women and men are prone to this disease. The risk of this disease in women is 50% less than men. One of the clear cut risk factor of this disease is the age of a person. Most people develop this disease at the age of 60 while 5-10% people develop this disease at the age of 50.


There are many symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Four main symptoms are:

  • Trembling of different body parts like hands, legs, arms, head, or jaw. This trembling is called as Tremor.
  • Slowness in the movement.
  • Stiffness and hardness of the trunk and limbs.
  • Impaired coordination and balance, sometimes causing falls.

Some other symptoms also exist like emotional changes, depression, difficulty in speaking, swallowing, and chewing, skin problems, constipation, sleep disruption and some urinary problems.

The symptoms of this disease may vary from person to person. But most of the people will have the above symptoms whenever they get this disease. During the early days of this disease, most people consider the symptoms as the usual signs of aging. As of now, no particular test exist for the detection of this disease. So, it is very difficult to detect this disease accurately.

Early symptoms of this disease occur gradually and are subtle. For instance, people affected with this disease may find it difficult to get out of chair and some mild tremors in the early days of this disease. They may also notice that they are speaking softly, their writing is a bit slow and it looks pretty small and cramped. Mostly, the individuals, their relatives and friends may notice these changes. They may notice that the person (with Parkinson’s disease) is unable to move his limbs as usual and their face lacks animations and expressions as usual.

People affected with Parkinson’s disease mostly develop a gait called as Parkinsonian gait. This gait includes the ability to bent forward, small or medium quick footsteps when hurrying forward and decreased swinging of limbs specially arms.

Usually, affected people observe the symptoms on either left or right side of the body or even in a specific limb on either side. The disease may affect both (left and right) sides of the body as it progresses.

However, symptoms can be more severe on one part of the body than the other one. Mostly, people with this disease report that they observed constipation problems, poor sleep, restless legs and reduced ability of smelling before experiencing any kind of tremor and severe stiffness.

A number of other disease can cause symptoms similar to this disease. People reporting symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease caused from other disease are said to have a condition called Parkinsonism.
