Those suffering from Parkinson`s disease know that having such a condition is devastating, particularly because it`s untreatable.  Although there are some methods and drugs available to manage this degenerative disorder, there isn’t any way to prevent or cure it.

While it has been long believed that the underlying cause lies in the brain, recent research shows that the disease could start in the gut, not the brain.  This research basically shows that the relation between the gut and the brain could result in earlier diagnosis and a new treatment.  Studying and understanding this relationship better will help change the lives of those having Parkinson`s for the better.

Potential Causes

Although the exacts cause of Parkinson`s remains unknown, it is believed that it is caused by oxidative stress, genetics, and toxins like carbon disulfide, carbon monoxide, and manganese.
