Hormone Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease

Neurology Solutions Movement Disorders Center offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to patients seen frequently by the practice to help address mobility and mood and improve quality of life. Hormone Therapy for Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases can reduce certain symptoms associated with PD and reduce dementia risk in the general elderly population.

Metabolic Enhancement for NeuroDegeneration shows promise

Researchers say Metabolic Enhancement for NeuroDegeneration (MEND)−a combination therapy to slow neurodegeneration−may partially reverse and stabilize cognitive decline. Participants with mild cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s style dementia who took part in a two-year MEND study demonstrated real, life-altering improvements after following the MEND protocol for 5 to 24 months, the study showed.

The MEND program calls for interventions to treat conditions such as inflammation, stress and diabetes that could be associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia. It involves multiple components including dietary adjustments, exercise, stress reduction, hormone balance, sleep optimization and integration of certain vitamins and supplements to the patient’s regular routine.

Treatments for secondary symptoms of Parkinson’s disease

The changes in the brain that cause motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease spread gradually but in time they often begin to affect mental functions, including memory and the ability to pay attention, make sound judgments and plan the steps needed to complete a task, known as “executive function.” Medication treatment is available for secondary symptoms of Parkinson’s disease affecting mental function, such as dementia, psychosis and impaired executive function.
