Parkinson’s disease is a progressive degenerative disease characterized by Tremor, Stiffness, Slowness of movements and Unsteadiness. Low levels of Dopamine in the brain also create other symptoms like gait and speech disorders, difficulty in swallowing, sleep disturbances, depression, dementia etc. in the course of the disease. The symptoms vary from patient to patient and may appear slowly in no particular order.

Ayurveda has a long history of managing diseases due to the imbalance of vata and kapha which can be correlated to Parkinson’s disease. Ayurvedic treatment focus on various aspects of the disease- improves the digestive function, reduce anxiety, confusion, relieve stress and promote sleep.
