Are there any cures for Parkinsons?
Unfortunately, a cure for Parkinson's disease has not been found yet. There are only a few drugs that can help minimize its effects. Unfortunately, the side effects of the treatment can be as bad as Parkinson's itself as they include something that has the appearance of senile dementia, including amnesia.

I have tinitus in both ears. I have been told many times (and read) that there is no help for tinitus sufferers. I am still seeking a more positive anwer on this. Please le…t me know if anything would help --- even surgery.
Certainly there is hope. We ought to view life optimistically. So read some facts below: Nowadays, with the help of modern science, there is always hope that the progress to…wards a herpes cure is not far away. A cure for herpes would transform the lives of millions of sufferers and is long overdue. There are medications your doctor can prescribe to help the symptoms of herpes. Natural treatments can help those who suffer by controlling symptoms until a cure for herpes is found. Adequate hydration is probably the most natural herpes cure. Don't hesitate.

No. The disorder is genetic. No. Hemophilia is not curable at this time. However, it is treatable. Using blood products, artificial blood clotting factors and in some cas…es hormones that induce the production of clotting factors, hemophilia can be treated. Hemophiliacs still require careful medical monitoring, but it is fairly manageable today. However, scientists are considering gene replacement therapy as a possible option in the future.
no & no, however if you are not a user maybe one dose of cocaine could get you though a "rough spot" or buy you a couple of hours with no parkinson, HOWEVER addiction to c…ocaine will make parkinson way worse and cause a few other "problems"
For breast cancer there is a new FDA approved drug called it Herceptin that shows considerable promise for those that catch it in the early stages in not only curing the cance…r but preventing relapses. it is still used in conjunction with other conventional forms of treatment however and science is prolonging life with cocktail drugs on other forms so we are making progress. Hopefully, if there are other new developments in research others will post it here. Yes, there is a great deal of trial success (soon to be used on humans) in 2009. Scientists in both the U.S. and Canada have had a 100% success rate with white blood cells attacking cancer in rats. Unlike Chemo that depletes the immune system this type of therapy will boost the immune system.
In some cases, like CMT, no. Symptoms of muscular dystropy can be surpressed with medication, but the disease is a genetic mutation. It's also hereditary, so it might be passe…d on to your children, even if you don't appear to have it. You might be a heterozygous for that particular gene. Meaning that it's a 50% chance for the gene to be passed on...
There are two forms of hepatitis B: Acute (self-clearing) or chronic. According to Wikipedia, "Acute hepatitis B infection does not usually require treatment because most adul…ts clear the infection spontaneously." 1% of acute cases may require early antiviral treatment, for example if there disease is particularly aggressive, or if the patient is immunocompromised. There are currently no drugs which will clear a chronic hepatitis b infection, however drugs are available which slow the replication of the virus, hence reducing liver damage and improving quality of life. These are all "antiviral" drugs. These are frequently used in those with chronic hepatitis B. Another issue is that, even when a person appears to be "cured" of hepatitis B, the disease can be "reactivated" and occur again in the same person. However this is mainly an issue for immunocompromised patients. Hepatitis B is preventable by vaccination (usually a course of three injections, given over a year, but course length and timing of each dose is individualised according to the patients requirements). As a general answer to your question, no, there is no "cure" for hepatitis B, however it is "treatable". Please see related link for more in-depth information.
There is no known cure for Parkinson's disease. The goal of treatment is to control symptoms. Medications control symptoms, mostly by increasing the levels of dopamine in the …brain. At certain points during the day, the helpful effects of the medication often wears off, and symptoms can return. Your doctor need to be change the: Type of medication Dose Amount of time between doses How the medications are taken Work closely with your doctors and therapists to adjust the treatment program. Never change or stop taking any medications without talking with your doctor. Many medications can cause severe side effects, including hallucinations, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and delirium. Monitoring and follow-up by the health care provider is important. Eventually, symptoms such as stooped posture, frozen movements, and speech difficulties may not respond very well to drug treatment. Medications used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease are: Levodopa (L-dopa), Sinemet, levodopa and carbidopa (Atamet) Pramipexole (Mirapex), ropinirole (Requip), bromocriptine (Parlodel) Selegiline (Eldepryl, Deprenyl), rasagiline (Azilect) Amantadine or anticholinergic medications -- to reduce early or mild tremors Entacapone -- to prevent the breakdown of levodopa Lifestyle changes that may be helpful for Parkinson's disease: Good general nutrition and health Exercising, but adjusting the activity level to meet changing energy levels Regular rest periods and avoiding stress Physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy Railings or banisters placed in commonly used areas of the house Special eating utensils Social workers or other counseling services to help you cope with the disorder and get assistance (such as Meals-on-Wheels) Less commonly, surgery may be an option for patients with very severe Parkinson's disease who no longer respond to many medications. These surgeries do not cure Parkinson's, but may help some patients: In deep brain stimulation (DBS), the surgeon implants electrical stimulators in specific areas of the brain to help with movement. Another type of surgery destroys brain tissues that cause Parkinson's symptoms.
No, at this stage there is no cure for RA. There is only hope that the disease goes into remission. There are treatments that reduce and in some cases eliminate the damage tha…t can be caused by RA but neither the cause nor how to stop it are known.

There are "treatments", but since the origin of the disorders are coded into the genes of the individual, there is no feasible way to alter the affected cells. "Gene therapy",… which seeks to replace faulty cells with normal or healthy versions, is only now beginning to yield results. Because tampering with genetic material can have unintended or unforeseen consequences, the use of such techniques is strictly controlled and reviewed. (see the excellent related link)
Unfortunately, in most cases hearing loss does not improve. However, some types of hearing loss can be caused by problems which may be treated medically, such as ear infection…s or a perforated ear-drum. These types of loss can often improve.

There actually is no known "cure" for eczema only treatments. The problems with standard treatments, light boxes, creams (corticosteroids etc) is that they have side effects, …especially steroids which can weaken the skin. I've had it for years, and only recently have been looking for more natural treatments. Try searching for homeopathic remedies or something like http://www.eczema-cure-all.com (which worked well for me) or look on WebMD Answer Yes, there is a cure. I have an aunt that has eczema. She has to see a dermatologist and he perscribes her a pill and some cream.
yes. there are drugs and therapy, look up a sex clinic. 1 in 10 men suffer from a sexual problem and most are too embaresed to treat it. shame isn't it?
I am 14 years old and have no record of any physical injury AT ALL. I haven't fallen anytime either and this pain started coming suddenly ,whenever I sit, now its starting to …hurt when i stand too. this has been lasting for 2-3 weeks its very hard for me at school so in your opinion should i get a coccyx and take a medicine called Bruffen? I don't trust medicine, this prescription was given by a lady doctor on the phone so i am DEFINITELY not going to take it without a proper checkup The problem is that i don't know which doctor i should go to and i doubt any of them have experience . Should i follow the prescription? i didnt write this all in the question because it wouldn't fit. :)
I bet I can answer this question. In fact, I think my cure would work. You need a sample of any type of virus because that will be the key. The virus will infect the tumor. A …virus is a bad thing like cancer. Once the tumor is infected badly, the tumor is exposed. When the tumor is gone, the virus will go to infect the immune system (Where there are some cancer cells) will kill them. When all the cancer is gone, give the patient some Antibiotics to kill the virus. That is my cure. Hope you people out there like it!
Yes there is! I had mono and I have been going to a natural doctor to treat my Lyme Disease actually and I had been taking whole food supplements and a DoTerra oil protoco…l and when I went to see the doctor she told me that that the Lyme was there but it was inactive but that the mono was completely gone! there were no traces of it in my body! so if people say there isn't a cure, im living proof that it can be cured!
