Parkinson’s disease is a common nervous system disorder which usually develops after the age of 50. It can, however, affect persons below 50 if it runs in the family.
This disorder presents a broad range of symptoms, such as shaking, difficulty with speaking, swallowing, walking, and coordination. There’s no known cure for Parkinson’s disease, and symptoms tend to progress with time. However, exercise and nutrition have been known to help improve the symptoms.
