Benign essential tremor, also known as familial tremor or hereditary tremor is a progressive neurological condition that causes a rhythmic trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs or trunk. As with Katherine Hepburn many people mistake this condition with Parkinson’s disease (tremor is a primary symptom of Parkinson’s Disease). Other types of tremors are progressive disorders which need to be addressed with the appropriate medical and nutritional supplements in the hope of decreasing further degradation.  Some other causes of tremors are cardiovascular stroke, head injuries, multiple sclerosis, stress, overactive thyroid, Magnesium or B Vitamin deficiency.
