What Is Parkinson’s Disease?

Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system which causes trouble controlling movements. Nerve cell damage in the midbrain reduces the levels of dopamine in the brain. Parkinson's disease is a chronic condition that can last for years without going into remission or become a lifelong condition.

What Are the Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease in Women?

The symptoms of Parkinson's disease in women are the same as the symptoms of Parkinson's disease in men. Tremors, slow movement, stiffness, loss of movement and loss of balance are very common symptoms of this affliction.

What Are the Hormonal Components of Parkinson's Disease?

There may be several hormonal components to Parkinson's disease. The endocrine system is a complicated series of glands secreting hormones that require a delicate balance to function. One problem within any of the glands can affect the entire system, causing hormonal imbalance. Women who have natural menopause may be less likely than those with early menopause to develop Parkinson's disease.

What Is BHRT Pellet Therapy?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, involves replacing missing or unbalanced hormones with hormones that identically resemble the chemical structure of human hormones. These hormones are compounded into the form of pellets. Pellets are about the size of a piece of rice and are inserted under the skin in a painless procedure. Subcutaneous BHRT pellets provide continual therapy of conditions such as Parkinson's in women continually between three and six months.
