Early Parkinson's Disease

Early or mild Parkinson’s disease represents the initial stages of this neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement and motor control. During this phase, individuals may experience subtle but noticeable symptoms, such as tremors, rigidity, and postural instability. These symptoms typically manifest mildly and may not significantly interfere with daily life. However, early Parkinson’s can also be present with non-motor symptoms, including mood changes, sleep disturbances, and cognitive alterations. Early diagnosis is essential to differentiate Parkinson’s from other conditions and initiate appropriate management, which often includes medication and lifestyle adjustments.

Live a Wholesome Life with Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine is an approach to healthcare that combines conventional Western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies. It emphasizes a holistic view of health, focusing on the interconnectedness of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Integrative medicine seeks to provide personalized and comprehensive care, incorporating evidence-based treatments alongside practices such as acupuncture, nutrition counselling, mindfulness, and other complementary therapies to promote healing and overall wellness.
