Managing your Parkinson symptoms efficiently





My name is Mariam Bennouna. Most of those who know me, know that I'm a Certified Life Coach. But I'm not only that... I'm also t a Mental Health Coach for young people with Parkinson's disease.

I was diagnosed with Parkinson's at the age of 28, so I understand perfectly the emotional and psychological impact that such a diagnosis can have on the concerned person and the family. I am very passionate about helping young people with Parkinson's navigate the unique challenges of living with this condition at a young age.


What are the main symptoms of Parkinson's?

Parkinson disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects the nervous system.

It’s characterized by the 4 main symptoms:




Although Parkinson's is a chronic condition, there are a number of things you can do to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.


Medication:

Medication is the primary treatment for Parkinson's. There are a number of different medications available, and ONLY your doctor can give you the best medication regimen for your individual needs. Medications can help to improve movement, reduce tremors, and relieve stiffness.

It’s important to take your medication on time and at the correct dosage. Skipping doses or taking too much medication can worsen your symptoms.


Exercise and Hygiene:

Exercise is VERY important part of managing Parkinson's disease. Regular exercise can help to improve your balance, coordination, and flexibility. It can also help to reduce fatigue and improve your mood.

Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.

Make sure you get around 7-8 hours of sleep per night as well.

Make sure you eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains as well.

Make sure you limit processed foods and sugary drinks.


Therapies:

In addition to medication and exercise, there are a number of other therapies that can be helpful for managing Parkinson's sysmptoms. Only your doctor can tell you which one of them is suitable for your individdal case. These therapies include:


1. Physical therapy can help you learn how to move more efficiently and safely. Examples of physical therapies for Parkinson's are:

  • Gait training: Gait training can help you to improve your walking speed and stride length. It can also help you to reduce your risk of falls.

  • Balance training: Balance training can help you to improve your balance and coordination. This can help you to avoid falls and injuries.

  • Strength training: Strength training can help you to improve your strength and flexibility. This can make it easier to perform everyday activities.

  • Range of motion exercises: Range of motion exercises can help to improve your flexibility and reduce stiffness. This can make it easier to move around and perform everyday activities.

  • Functional training: Functional training can help you to learn how to perform everyday activities in a safe and efficient manner.

2. Occupational therapy can help you adapt your daily activities to make them easier to manage. Some of the specific ways that this kind of therapy can help people with Parkinson's include:

  • Teaching new ways to perform daily activities (how to use a button hook to button a shirt or how to use a long-handled spoon to eat).

  • Recommending adaptive equipment to make it easier to perform daily activities (using a grab bar in the shower or a raised toilet seat).

  • Modifying the home or workplace to make the environment safer and more accessible by making changes such as widening doorways, installing ramps, and rearranging furniture.

  • Teaching energy conservation techniques about how to conserve energy and reduce fatique, so that the person manages to do most of daily activities throughout the day.

  • Providing emotional support to help people with Parkinson's to cope with the challenges of the disease.

3. Speech therapy can help you improve your speech and communication by:

  • Teaching vocal exercises to strengthen the muscles that control the voice.

  • Teaching strategies for increasing volume and projection.

  • Teaching strategies for improving articulation and pronunciation.

  • Teaching strategies for slowing down speech and increasing pauses.

  • Teaching strategies for managing freezing.


I have been living with Parkinson's for 12 years now, and I have learned a lot about how to manage my symptoms. I want to help you develop the right coping strategy for your symptoms. Once these strategies become part of your daily life, then you can focus on what is most important and that allows you to live a fulfilling life despite your symptoms.

"Mariam has coached me for about six weeks. From the first session, she has been highly professional and helped me better understand my priorities and what I would like to achieve personally and professionally. In addition, she helped me to build a disciplinary action list to keep me motivated and help me achieve my goals. Thanks to Mariam's coaching, I am happy about what I have achieved and the awareness I developed during this short time."
