It starts off with understanding PD in simple layperson's terms. Then looks at how to maintain energy, promote regular bowel function, incontinence, gives tips on taking drugs more effectively, discusses PD drugs and their effects, healthy eating tips, dealing with weight problems, dental care, addresses chewing or swallowing problems as well as speech and voice projection issues, improving sleep, gives tips for intimacy, suggests ways to improve muscles and movement and hand flexibility as well as feet and walking, covers the many considerations of stress in PD...and the list goes on...travel tips, recipes, what to discuss with your doctor...!
It is so well written and utterly packed full of easy-to-understand information it is hard to believe it's less than 200 pages long (the book version of the TARDIS!). This book is very beneficial for those interested in how to manage PD for so many reasons:
Don't have the time to read a long book? This book is for you.
Want a primer for managing PD? This book is for you.
Short of ideas on what to do for anyone with PD? This book is for you.
Need some prompts or revision on how to manage PD? This book is for you.
Would like a comprehensive yet 'digestible' guide to managing PD? This book is for you.
Everyone with PD should have a copy of this book to hand, and every health professional should be recommending it to their patients and clients.
The book includes areas that may not always be advised like the importance of the specific timing of taking L-dopa in relation to food (protein competes with L-dopa transport across the blood brain barrier). The recommendations, however are NOT just from a nutritional perspective but cover personal, physiological, and psychological areas, amongst others.
This user-friendly book encourages Parkinson's people to be proactive as regards their needs when communicating with the medical profession.
