Imagine being an all-star football player in college or a world-class actor that commands the Broadway stage. Then imagine that, as you got older, you slowly start to lose control of your body. You can’t get a spoon to your mouth because your hands shake so badly. It’s a struggle to get dressed, because every part of your body shakes, so it feels practically impossible to put your foot into your pant leg. Unfortunately, this is the reality for 200,000 people per year who are diagnosed with this disease.

parkinsons2What is Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disease that attacks the brain slowly over time. The brain stops producing dopamine, which is a chemical that helps to control the body’s motor functions. This damage to the brain normally progresses slowly and starts as just small tremors in the hands. It progresses to the point where there is virtually no control of any of the body’s motor functions. Parkinson’s Disease has two types of symptoms: motor symptoms and non-motor symptoms.

Motor Symptoms

  • Bradykinesia
  • Involuntary Shaking
  • Stiffness
  • Balance Concerns

Non-Motor Symptoms

  • Negative Mood Changes
  • Cognitive Degeneration
  • Hypotension
  • Hallucinations
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Fatigue

As an intuitive healer, there is no distance from which Antonio cannot help you with your Parkinson’s symptoms. While doctors have found few treatments, working with Antonio could be the alternative treatment for Parkinson’s Disease that you’ve been looking for. A prior client, Betty from New York, had this to say about working with Antonio on her Parkinson’s symptoms: “ I now have much more control over my body and note that I have longer periods of mobility that enable me to walk longer and have control. I understand we have only worked together for 3 sessions but have not had this kind of improvement in the last year prior to working with you.”
