THE MORNING SHOW
Dr. Ross Stewart, Ph.D.
Nutritional Deficiencies and Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease is one of the most severely crippling chronic disorders of the nervous system and the brain center involved in the control and regulation of movement.
A variety of genetic and environmental factors underlie the symptoms of Parkinson’s. Emergent research implicates relative nutritional deficiencies, neurotoxicity created by methylation collapse and brain injury to be a major contributor to neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s disease.
The initial event leading to Parkinson’s disease is damage to the post-synaptic dopamine neurons of the substantia nigra of the brain which regulate fine motor control. Parkinson’s disease is classified as a progressive neurodegenerative disease meaning that the initial damage continues and is the cause of deterioration.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s may be vague and progress in phases over many years before reaching a point where they interfere with normal daily activities. About 50 percent of people with Parkinson’s experience fatigue which typically develops early in the course of the disease.
Cause and mechanism of fatigue may be the result of the changes taking place in the brain. A feeling of deep tiredness can come on unexpected, causing people who were once active and energetic to be unable to work and participate in social activities. Stress can worsen fatigue.
