To date, the cause of Parkinson’s Disease, a neurodegenerative disease that afflicts one in 1,000 individuals, has been unknown, but one hypothesis was tested in a study sponsored by the Danish Parkinson’s Disease Association. Researchers theorized that Parkinson’s starts in the gastrointestinal tract and spreads through the body and upward towards the brain, specifically through the vagus nerve. This theory is supported by a study done on approximately 15,000 patients whose vagus nerve was entirely severed. Those whose vagus nerve was partially severed still developed Parkinson’s, whereas others whose vagus nerve was entirely removed did not develop the disease at all. Individuals who carry Parkinson’s display symptoms such as physical tremors, difficulty with gait and posture, loss of olfactory senses, inability to speak, and poor balance, among other symptoms. A-1 Home Care in Burbank offers home care solutions to enhance the lives of individuals with Parkinson’s.

One of the worst things that can happen to anyone is when they start to lose their independence and are forced to rely on others for simple tasks like brushing their teeth or getting dressed.
