Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative brain disorder in the central nervous system. It’s the type of condition that slowly progresses and could take symptoms months, even years, to develop and degrade. Under Parkinson’s, a sufferer’s movements are greatly altered because cells that generate dopamine die off in the midbrain. Dopamine is what allows individuals to have coordinated muscle movements. The motor symptoms that arise from Parkinson’s usually appear when over half of these dopamine generating cells are damaged.
Other symptoms of Parkinson’s include:
- Slowed movement
- Rigid muscles
- Impaired posture and balance
- Speech changes
Presently, there is no cure for Parkinson’s, but stem cell therapy is offering a positive option for sufferers. Stem cells have the innate ability to revitalize and replenish dying tissue in the body. In the instance of treating Parkinson’s, stem cells would be released with the intent of replacing dying nerve cells in the brain. The goal here is to create those new dopamine generating cells.
Research within administering stem cells to treat Parkinson’s have shown improvements in patients behavior and mood, reduced confusion, improved motor skills, increased cognitive function, reduced memory loss, and an increase in energy.
Stem cell treatment is a natural alternative to traditional medications. It offers hope for victims of Parkinson’s.
