Abstract

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a gradually growing abnormality of the CNS (Central Nervous System). The definite causation and cure for this disease is not known till date. It is a chronic disease that affects the systems associated with the mobility functions of the body. There is no known remedy till now, that can cure Parkinson’s disease. Modified diet protocols for those who affected by Parkinson’s disease, works by restoring essential biochemical parameters to normal level and also by promoting good and healthy lifestyle. The most promising approach appears to be the use of antioxidants to slow down the oxidation and damage to the substantia nigra portion of the brain, which has important role in reward and movement functions. The best diet guidance for people with this disease is, to have the right balance of nutrients from different food groups. Such a balance can only be achieved by consuming a well balanced diet, which will provide adequate levels of vitamins and minerals. In addition to switching to well balanced diet, research could lead to development of additional nutritional approaches in the future that could prove effective in treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
