We want to address critical issues for people with Parkinson's disease: habits that, if not changed, can worsen symptoms and negatively impact quality of life. This article aims to provide educational and constructive advice to help readers develop healthier habits.

Postponement of medical treatment

Delaying regular doctor appointments or not following a prescribed treatment plan is harmful. Parkinson's disease is a chronic condition that requires ongoing monitoring to adjust treatment as needed.

  • Make regular doctor appointments and strictly follow the treatment plan prescribed by your doctor.


Lack of physical activity

A sedentary lifestyle is a known risk factor for many health problems, including Parkinson's disease. Lack of physical activity can affect motor function and overall function.

  • Incorporate moderate physical activity, such as short walks or strength training, into your daily routine under the supervision of a healthcare professional.

Ignore the symptoms

Ignoring the symptoms of Parkinson's disease can lead to poor management of the disease and accelerated deterioration of motor function.

  • Keep a detailed record of your symptoms and share this record with your healthcare team during your appointment. This allows for an accurate assessment and rapid adjustment of treatment.


Changing negative habits is an important step in effectively treating Parkinson's disease. Maintaining a positive attitude towards your health, following the prescribed treatment plan and actively participating in your own care are key to improving your quality of life. Remember that even the smallest change can make a big difference to our well-being.
