About the disease

Parkinson disease is a chronic, progressive brain disease, first described in the beginning of nineteenth century by the English doctor-physician John Parkinson. It is also known as a tremor disease. Patients with Parkinson often suffer from uncontrolled limb tremor (tremors), muscles stiffness, impaired joint coordination and problem with speech. These signs usually develop after age 55, although there are cases of Parkinson under the age of 55 years.

Parkinson disease is progressive, its symptoms over time aggravate and worsen. Despite the fact that Parkinson disease eventually leads to disability and total loss of motion capacity. Tremor often starts with a slight trembling of the fingers or of even individual fingertips. In some cases tremor is accompanied by uneven movement of middle finger and thumb which looks like a person is rolling invisible pills. These symptoms may appear with other disorders of nervous system, such discoordination. Shaking is particularly evident during the "pill rolling syndrome" which occurs mostly when the patient is stressed and devastated about something. Although tremor of limbs and joints causes considerable further inconvenience, it does not end  in a total loss of vital capacity skills and disappears only in times when the person is soundly sleeping. Many patients with tremor disease suffer only from a little shaking.

Tremor develops as a result of damage or destruction of particular nerve endings, located in the black substance of a brain. In healthy brain these nerve cells produce such element as dopamine. The function of this element is to ensure the normal movement of nerve transmission with each other. In Parkinson disease the reduced production of dopamine interferes with the normal transmission of nerve impulses.

Several medications taken for a long time at high doses can cause Parkinson. These includes drugs prescribed for the treatment of certain mental disorders, as well as anti-nausea medications, such as metoclopramide. The anti-epileptic valproic acid may also cause some of the most well-known symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Parkinson may also be caused by an infectious, traumatic brain injury, infectious exposure.

Symptoms

  • immobility of  hands while walking
  •  light finger shaking
  •  minor speech disorders
  •  devastating mood
  •  loss of vital strength
  •  the patient is  likely to suffer from the inability to get to sleep.

In addition, the  everyday chores such as shower taking, shaving, cooking and bathing require a lot of extra effort and take much more time than usual.

Diagnosis

There are no specific diagnostic tests for Parkinson disease. Most often doctors rule out other possible disease, which cause symtposn, similar to Parkinson. Usually, patients with this symptoms are oderder MRI, PAT scan, bloos test and ultrasound of the brain.

Treatment

The treatment program for each patient should be individualized, where the rationally selected regimen will allow to achieve good results for a long time. 

  • Apitherapy, also known as stung procedure, can becarried out by highly qualified doctor, who has a large experience in the treatment of neurological patients. This is treatment with the bee stung. At the beginning the amount of stungs is determined by the tolerance and individual sensitivity of the patient to apitoxin. The doctor then selects the treatment regimen individually. The improvement in patient`s health occurs even in a shorter time than during the chemotherapy treatments. Especially stung is effective  if applied in the joint. During the apitherapy the doctor can use the bee products.
  • Drugs in this case act as neural mediators. Apitoxin has a neuroprotective and stimulating effect on the central and peripheral nervous system, as it increases the synthesis of dopamine nerve cells, which has a positive result for the nerve impulses. Bee venom also accelerates the recovery processes in the affected brain regions. It restores normal transmission of nerve impulses and reduces the main symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Bee toxin can also accelerate the blood flow to the nerve cells. It lowers blood viscosity, thus preventing thrombosis, which is common for Parkinson patients.
  • Deep brain stimulation (dbs) with implanted neurostimulator is the modern treatment technique, which uses neurostimulator to send electrical impulses to specific areas in the brain responsible for movement. This procedure can improve neuropsychiatric disorder.
  • Pallidotomy is a surgery with the help of which symptoms of Parkinson disease alleviate and progress more slowly. Surgeon removes the overactive part of the brain, which lessens the tremor and eliminate rigidity.
