Alzheimers and Parkinsons Diseases
Alzheimer's disease is the leading cause of dementia, accounting for 60-80% of all cases. It often develops slowly over time, with symptoms growing progressively severe as time passes.
Parkinson's disease affects about 1% of people over the age of 60. Parkinson's disease can induce non-motor symptoms such as sadness, anxiety, and sleep difficulties in addition to motor symptoms such as tremors and stiffness. The illness is caused by the loss of dopamine-producing cells in the substantia nigra, a part of the brain.
