Disease in later stages are manifest problems of speech, swallowing and digestion, and often follows the depression. Usually occurs after the 60th year, and usually is affecting male population.

Treatment and nutrition
In the therapy for Parkinson’s disease, doctors usually use drugs containing levodopa – a substance that converts into dopamine in the brain. However, doctors are usually deferring their application until it is possible, by using symptom therapy.

People suffering from this disease are recommended to take products rich in vitamins C, D and E as well as coenzyme Q10. The diet should be enriched with fish, fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and because it is proven that caffeine stimulates the secretion of dopamine, the consumption of coffee and green tea are also recommended.
