Are there any herbs are other natural means for helping with parkinson tremors?
Parkinson's disease is a serious neurological disease that can be difficult to manage. With new advances in both the alternative and conventional world treatment in improving.
While there is no one herb that I know of that will eliminate Parkinson tremors there are some important nutrients to consider for anyone with this condition.
CoQ10 is a potent anti-oxidant for the brain. It also plays a key role in energy production all over the body. Some previous studies have shown promising results using CoQ10 with Parkinson's patients. The most successful study used a dose of 1200mg per day which is quite high but the outcomes were positive.
The use of Glutathione in Parkinson's disease was pioneered by Dr. David Perlmutter, MD. At his clinic in Florida he uses IV glutathione which, in some cases, almost instantly stops tremors. The benefits are temporary, but the treatment is totally non-toxic and safe so it can be repeated weekly. Many of his patients found that they did not need to increase the doses of their medications if they were receiving regular infusions of glutathione. While you may not be able to find a doctor to administer IV glutathione, you can certainly take it orally. It is widely available as a dietary supplement and some studies have confirmed that oral administration is effective at raising blood levels.
