Tremors – What You Should Know

Teleclinic – Feb 4, 2020

Trembling hands does not necessarily mean that you have Parkinson’s Disease. There are a number causes, and natural corrections, for these movement disorders.

Shaking hands can be a sign of things other than Parkinson’s

If you notice your hands are shaky when pouring a cup of coffee, holding a bridge hand or combing your hair, you may leap to the conclusion you are in the early stages of Parkinson disease. But actually, essential tremor is the most common form of abnormal trembling — primarily of the hands.

Essential tremor is a nerve disorder in which tremors occur without an identifiable cause. The tremor resembles an exaggerated shaking and occurs when a person is using his or her hands but does not occur while the hands are at rest. Parkinson’s tremors are just the opposite – noticeable shaking when at rest but no shaking when the hands are engaged.

Some degree of tremor during movements is normal for everyone. Stress, fatigue, anger, fear, caffeine and cigarette smoking may temporarily worsen normal tremor to the point that it becomes visible to the naked eye.

Chronic essential tremor can occur at any age but is most common in people older than 65. It is a relatively benign condition, affecting movement or voice quality, but with no other effects. It involves a rhythmic, moderately rapid tremor of voluntary muscles.
Over time, essential tremor may involve hands, arms, head, voice box, eyelids, or other muscles. An essential tremor rarely affects the legs or feet. It may start in one body part but can progress to include other parts.

Any change in your normal body functioning should be discussed with your natural doctor. He or she can rule out the effects of excessive caffeine or tobacco use, alcohol withdrawal, or the use of certain medications (some asthma drugs, some antidepressants, lithium or some anti-seizure drugs). Other causes for tremors include hyperthyroidism, pheochromocytoma, Wilson’s disease (a rare condition in which copper accumulates in the brain and liver) and other disorders.

An evaluation by a natural physician who is familiar with movement disorders will help distinguish essential tremor from Parkinson disease. Treatment for essential tremor may not be necessary unless tremors interfere with your ability to perform daily activities or if they are considered so embarrassing that you withdraw from normal activities.

By assessing such things as chemical toxicity, neuro-protein metabolism, B vitamin cofactor imbalance as well as adrenal stress response the cause of many tremors can be identified and corrected naturally. Consider having a Nutritional Advice Interview with Dr. Brouse to see if a program can be developed to help restore normal movement without a tremor.

Wholesome ~ Fresh ~ Delicious A Cookbook From The Brouse House

JENNIE BROUSE has a passion for making delicious, nutritious food, and has been practicing since she was a girl. Her dear mother instilled in her the wisdom of eating for health, growing and preserving food from their large garden, and cooking from scratch. This lifestyle continued while raising their children to today. Sharing her delicious meals with friends and family has been part of her “love language”. Jennie’s husband, Richard, has counseled many patients with nutritional advice for over 43 years. She has worked beside him encouraging them in their change to a healthier lifestyle, including eating habits. This cookbook has evolved from the many requests of patients and friends who want a few guidelines for more wholesome cooking. Thus, Wholesome-Fresh-Delicious has been created with recipes that have been favorites in the Brouse house. It is the authors’ hope that many will be inspired to seek out more wholesome food sources, embrace seasonal eating of fresh produce, and love cooking from scratch; all of which will encourage great health! https://www.brousehousecookbook.com/
