Prevention of Parkinson’s disease is especially necessary for those people whose relatives have ever suffered from this disease. If you have a hereditary predisposition, try to protect yourself from the factors that provoke the disease.
Prevent and treat timely conditions that contribute to the development of Parkinson’s disease (repeated craniocerebral trauma, vascular diseases of the brain, intoxication).
Try to avoid injuries, in particular, head injuries, avoid extreme sports where the risk of injuries is especially high.
When choosing a profession, consider which of them are associated with work in hazardous or chemical industries. Avoid contact with household chemicals, fertilizers, insecticides.
It is extremely important for women to control the level of sex hormones-estrogens, the level of which decreases significantly with age or after gynecological operations.
Another biochemical indicator that increases the development of Parkinson’s disease is an increase in the blood amino acid – homocysteine. Folic acid and vitamin B12 help reduce its content. Folic acid is found in large quantities in green plant foods: green peas, spinach, lettuce, etc. There is a lot of vitamin B12 in the liver. In addition, it is recommended to take sunflower seeds, nuts, soy products, olive or linseed oil.
Researchers have found that taking one cup of natural coffee per day also helps protect against the development of Parkinson’s disease. The defense mechanism is associated with the release of dopamine in the nerve cells by caffeine.
Moderate physical activity will help prevent Parkinson’s disease: swimming, running, walking, dancing (it’s known that there are no parkinsonism patients among professional dancers), and yoga classes. The main thing is also the regularity of training.
