Parkinson's disease (also called shaking palsy) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease. Symptoms typically include: tremor, slowness of movement (bradykinesis), muscle rigidity, masked face (hypomimia), monotone voice, or reduction of handwriting (micrography).
In many patients, the Parkinson's symptoms can be alleviated to a certain degree with the help of specific medications that are prescribed by a neurologist or general physician. But these drugs can have undesirable side effects that may increase over time, while in parallel their efficacy usually decreases. Most importantly, drug therapy does not stop the progression of Parkinson's disease itself.
Recent research has shown that there are therapies that may be able to slow the progression of the disease or stop it in isolated cases. Our practice specializes in these kinds of complementary therapies for Parkinson's disease. With over 15 years of experience in this field, and a continuous review of the relevant scientific literature and a global network of specialists, we are able to advise and treat our patients based on the latest research. We use modern diagnostic methods to test for the presence of a number of co-factors (co-causes) for Parkinson's disease. Based on this, we develop an individual plan together with our patients.
