KOZHIKODE: A complete cure may be impossible in case of Parkinson’s disease, but symptoms could be alleviated with the help of ayurvedic medicines, maintained the 43rd annual ayurveda seminar on the disease conducted by the Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala here on Sunday.

An early detection and treatment of the disease could help the patient to lead a better life and the time calls for more researches in this area, the seminar attended by expert ayurvedic physicians including Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala managing trustee and chief physician Dr P K Warrier, pointed out.

Among the major causes of the disease cited at the seminar were environmental factors such as pollution, loss of brain cells and head injuries. Genetic inheritance is found only in five percent of the cases and the onset of disease could happen at a very early age.
