I have been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease since 2010 by the VA. I found that none of the current medications worked (side effects for me). I currently take Pramipexole dihydrochloride three times daily. It isn’t working well neither. I still have some tremors. Was on carbidopa levodopa but only lasted 90 minutes then wore off. Down side of Carbidopa is after reaching max dosage it will no longer give relief, nothing was working for me and to make matters worse There has been little if any progress in finding a reliable medical treatment for Parkinson’s disease, This year our family doctor started me on Healthherbsclinic Parkinson’s Disease Herbal mixture, 6 months into treatment I improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case of Parkinson’s, hallucination, weakness, muscle pain or tremors. I’m strong again and able to go about daily activities. Visit Health Herbs Clinic website healthherbsclinic .com
The Strength, Hope and Resourcefulness Program for People with Parkinson's Disease: A Qualitative Investigation of Helpful Group Processes
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by motor and non-motor features. Many people with PD struggle with mental health issues such as depression. Evidence shows that people with PD may have trouble adopting a hopeful or positive orientation given their diagnosis and symptoms. Psychological treatments for PD are scarce and even more scarce are treatments that specifically focus on promoting hope and well-being. The Strengths, Hope, and Resourcefulness Program for People with Parkinson’s Disease was developed to begin to address this treatment gap. This qualitative study used in-depth, semi-structured interviews with 15 participants to identify seven processes group members found helpful during treatment: Accessing Hope, Comparing, Drawing Together, Reaching Beyond Self, Releasing Emotion, Sharing Skills/Picking Up Resources, and Self-Reflecting/Personal Insight. The unique contributions of an intentional and explicit hope, strengths, and resources intervention are discussed with specific attention to therapeutic process and practice. This study was reviewed and approved by the Health Research Ethics Board at the University of Alberta (ID # Pro00065937).
