Parkinson's disease is a common condition of the brain that affects middle-aged men and women. It continues to grow with time even though the symptoms may appear to be less with medications.

Researches state that men are affected more than women and white men fall easier victims than people of other ethnic groups.

Parkinson's disease is not new to human history as there are evidences that it existed thousands of years ago. The symptoms and potential therapies have been mentioned in ancient texts of Ayurveda. It names it as "Kampavata", a neurological degenerative disorder, commonly found in elderly people. The first Chinese medical text Nei Jing also has mentioned it about 2,500 years ago.

The disease affects the arms, legs, feet, jaw, face, eyelids, and tongue and after sometime, the tremor can be experienced in all limbs and on both sides of the body. The patients affected with PD may find it difficult to walk, talk, or even carry out their daily chores.

5) Ayurveda is more particular about elimination of toxins from the body to balance the three humors.
