Therapeutic Avenue for Parkinson's Disease?

In post-mortem samples from individuals with Parkinson's, brain cells called astrocytes show evidence of cellular senescence. Senescent cells loose a specific protein from their nuclei; this protein is indicated with the green signal in the image above. This protein is lost from astrocytes (red cells), but not from neighboring cells. Note that astrocytes do not appear to become senescent in control individuals -- on the left.

Around age 60 I noticed that my handwriting was getting smaller and I was writing faster. I also noticed a small tremor in my right hand. The doctor went over my different symptoms and he suspected I'd either had a small stroke or the beginnings of Parkinson 's disease. After finding a neurologist and some testing I was diagnosed with the beginning stages of Parkinson’s disease. That was 4 years ago. I take Sinimet four times a day to control my symptoms, which include falling, imbalance, gait problems, swallowing difficulties, and slurring of speech,December 2017 our family doctor started me on Mbeki Herbal Clinic Parkinson’s Disease Herbal mixture, 5 weeks into treatment I improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case of dementia, hallucination, weakness, muscle pain or tremors. Visit Mbeki Herbal Clinic official website w ww.mbekiherbalclinic .com. I am strong again and able to go about daily activities.‌ This Herbal Formula is Incredible!!
