Try This if Your Loved One is Losing Weight Because of Parkinson’s

By Mark Kaelin

Living with Parkinson’s disease presents certain challenges to patients and caregivers. Increased caloric expenditure due to tremors, changes to one’s sense of smell, and medication side effects such as nausea make it difficult for a person with the disease to maintain a healthy weight. “Weight loss in individuals with Parkinson’s is fairly common and can have devastating effects, as it impacts mobility, quality of life, and level of function,” says Denise Burd, nursing faculty member at Bellarmine University. To overcome this challenge, Burd suggests to “always have [the patient’s] favorite foods available and increase your use of seasonings on individual dishes to increase flavor.”

  1. The love of my life for the last 17 years was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease nearly 4 years ago, at age 52. He had a stooped posture, tremors, muscle stiffness, horrible driving skills, and slow movement. He was placed on Sinemet 50/200 at night for 7 months and then Sifrol and rotigotine were introduced which replaced the Sinemet but he had to stop due to side effects. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with reality. Suspecting it was the medications I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor's knowledge) In March this year his primary physician suggested we started him on Natural Herbal Gardens Parkinson’s Herbal formula which eased his anxiety a bit, i’m happy to report this PD herbal treatment worked very effectively. His Parkinson’s is totally under control, he had a total decline in symptoms, the tremors, shaking, stiffness, slow movement and speech problems stopped.
