  2. Early Parkinson

  3. My mom has been using Enbrel biologic injection once a year and has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson. That kind of Rheumatoid Arthritis biologic treatments have a lot of possible side effects. Also this medication controls her immune system as well as her RA. On the other hand, I was wondering is controlling her immune system with that medicine bad for the progression of Parkinson or not? Should she stop that kind of treatment for her RA and choose something else? What kind of RA treatments can she get without effecting her Parkinson in a bad way? Thank you!

  5. Hello Dr Okun. My mom recently diagnosed with early stage Parkinson and using 0.75 mg pexola(pramipexole). She says it is working well. I also recommended my mom to use some vitamins such as B12, E, C, Coenzyme Q10, Omega3, K2withD3, probiotics and miralax for constipation for her Parkinson Disease. I did some search on the internet to find these vitamins. Can they be beneficial for PD? Also I read sun exposure increases harmful free radicals in human brain or body, do you think is it beneficial to sunbathe for PD or not. I know Vitamin D is necessary but how can she lessen free radicals? Do you recommend sun exposure? Thank you!

  7. Early stage Parkinson

    Hello. My mom has a right hand tremor at rest and has slight depression, she has some rigidity but she can walk and do daily chores, she does not experience any other difficulties.She was diagnosed as early stage Parkinson in another country last week. Is there med. or herbal way to stop her hand tremor completely and permanently? Her doctor prescribed.Pexola 0.375mg and it helps her tremor little. She says it helped her depression/stress too.If she lived here in US, I was wondering what kind of medical treatment would she benefit?(I live here and I can bring her to US if it will be beneficial to her) Also she was taking some medicines (like Mabdera) and pain killers and Zoloft for her Rheumatoid Arthiritis and depression and she is suspicious that maybe it is not a Parkinson and maybe it is Parkinsonism due the combination of drugs. I was wondering is there a really good way that works for how to differentiate Parkinson and Parkinsonism. Thank you!
