Book Description :

Parkinson's Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder of the central nervous system which affects movement, muscle control and balance. In addition to these "motor symptoms," patients with Parkinson's Disease are also affected by "non-motor symptoms" including cognitive disturbances such as dementia, depression and hallucinations as well as autonomic dysfunction. Diagnosis of the disease is crucial and misdiagnosis is frequent. Enormous advances have been made in recent decades in the understanding of the clinical features, aetiology, pathology of the disease, as well as in the provision of new treatments. Part of the Oxford Neurology Library series, this concise and practical pocketbook provides an up-to-date practical text on the management of Parkinson's Disease. Chapters outline the causes and clinical features of the disease, as well as its diagnosis and assessment. Specific chapters concentrate on the management of motor and non-motor symptoms, as well as on the mansgement of early Parkinson's Disease. This pocketbook will serve as a useful guide for the non-specialist neurologist, including those in training, and also those wishing to develop an interest in movement disorders.

Book Description :

As many as one million Americans, including Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali, suffer from Parkinson's Disease. Now, a leader in the fight against Parkinson's, Dr. J. Eric Ahlskog of the Mayo Clinic, has revised and updated his definitive guide for patients and their families. Dr. Ahlskog offers a crystal-clear, nuts-and-bolts approach to the treatment of PD, distilled from more than 30 years of experience as a clinician and researcher. His goal is to educate patients so that they can better team with their doctors to do battle with the disease, streamlining the decision-making process and enhancing their treatment. To do this, Dr. Ahlskog offers a gold mine of information: How do I know if I have PD? What kinds of tests can I take? What medications slow the progress of the disease? What if medications don't help my tremor? What kinds of movement problems may develop later? How can I cope with insomnia and daytime sleepiness, dizziness and depression, memory problems, paranoia, and delusions? Indeed, the book covers virtually every topic related to Parkinson's, from sexual impotence and skin rashes, to the role of nutrition, exercise, and physical therapy. In addition, Dr. Ahlskog discusses brain surgery (though he urges that patients only consider this as a last resort) and such experimental therapies as stem cell transplantation and gene therapy. There are also lists of support and advocacy groups and Web sites that focus on Parkinson's. The ultimate guide to symptoms and treatment, this thoroughly updated Second Edition is the first place patients should turn for reliable, easy-to-grasp information on Parkinson's disease.

Book Description :

In recent years, considerable advances have been made in our knowledge and understanding of Parkinson's disease (PD). In particular, there has been an explosion of information regarding genetic contributions to the etiology of PD and an increased awareness of the importance of the non-motor features of the disease. Theories regarding the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of PD have also been refined, and new treatment modalities and advances implemented. Reflecting these changes, this second edition features new chapters devoted to genetic aspects of PD, non-motor features of the disease, and aspects of the pathophysiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of PD.

Book Description :

“John Vine says he wrote this book for people who have been newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Well, I was diagnosed 24 years ago, and I still learned something new on every page.”—Michael Kinsley, Vanity Fair columnist and author of Old Age: A Beginner’s Guide Here is the book that John Vine and his wife, Joanne, wish they could have consulted when John was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease—a nontechnical, personal guide written from the patient’s perspective. Relying on his experiences over the past 12 years, John writes knowledgeably about all aspects of the disease. John also interviewed other Parkinson’s patients and their partners, whose stories and advice he includes throughout the book. “I wish we’d had John Vine’s book when my brother-in-law was diagnosed. The book is highly informative, unflinchingly honest, and reassuringly optimistic. It’s just what the doctor should have ordered.”—Cokie Roberts, best-selling author and political commentator on ABC News and NPR “John Vine details, in a compelling and accessible way, his experience with Parkinson’s disease. His book is an extraordinary guide to living successfully with Parkinson’s, and a must read for all who want to better understand the condition. Although diagnosed with Parkinson’s, my father lived an active and productive life until his death at age 94. As the book makes clear, while each patient’s journey is unique, common approaches are indispensable in treating the symptoms of the disease.”—Eric H. Holder, Jr. served as the 82nd Attorney General of the United States from 2009 to 2015 “John Vine has written the best primer I’ve ever read for newly diagnosed Parkinson’s patients and their families. It helps them cope with the shock of diagnosis, gives them (jargon-free) the scientific basics they need to know, describes the symptoms they may experience (making clear that every case is different) and catalogs the resources available to navigate living with Parkinson’s. John humanizes the book by describing his own experience and that of 22 other patients and their partners. I’d urge every neurologist to have copies of Vine’s primer on hand to help new PD on their journey forward.”—Morton Kondracke, author of Saving Milly: Love, Politics and Parkinson’s Disease and a member of the Founders' Council of the Michael J. Fox Foundation “My husband has PD, and I devoured this book. It’s wise, wonderfully readable, and, above all, helpful. Since John Vine has PD, he speaks with great authority about the challenges, both physical and psychological. If you have Parkinson’s, live with someone who has it, or just know someone battling the disease, A Parkinson’s Primer is for you.”—Lesley Stahl, award-winning television journalist on the CBS News program 60 Minutes “This is a remarkable book describing the personal experiences of many individuals, including the author, living with Parkinson’s disease. It captures the fact that although there are many possible symptoms in this disease, each person experiences different symptoms and copes with them in various ways. The thoughtful and insightful comments and coping strategies should be helpful for persons with PD, and their partners, regardless of the stage of the disease.”—Stephen Grill, MD, PhD, Director of the Parkinson’s & Movement Disorders Center of Maryland

Book Description :

John Coleman was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease while studying to be a naturopath, and banished all the frustrating symptoms of this cruel condition from his body ... naturally! His new book equips those diagnosed with the knowledge needed to reverse their Parkinson's disease symptoms and even recover, using completely natural means. Rethinking Parkinson's Disease traces known pathways leading to a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, together with strategies to reverse each pathway. It includes the best evidence from Western allopathic medicine and complementary/alternative medicine in discovering how and why people with Parkinson's develop symptoms, the diagnostic process, standard treatments and prognoses offered by expert practitioners, and ongoing research. The book presents strategies that have been shown, clinically or in research, to improve the health of people with Parkinson's, with the possibility of reversing symptoms. A major section of this work details strategies to create wellness, many available to patients at little or no cost. There are sections on symptom control, complementary medical treatments and therapies to avoid. The book is aimed primarily at people with Parkinson's, families and supporters, and may be used as a self-help book, including advice on building a team of supportive practitioners. There are also suggestions and advice for both Western allopathic medicine and complementary/alternative medicine practitioners to enhance their care of patients with a Parkinson's disease diagnosis, so it may be used as a handbook for practitioners wishing to move away from the standard conservative view of Parkinson's disease as an "incurable" disease.

A wide variety of therapies have been identified by Parkinsons Recovery researcher Robert Rodgers, PhD that help people reverse symptoms of Parkinson's disease. One such method is the use of essential oils. A big advantage of this therapy is that essential oils do not require a prescription from a medical doctor. They are also soothing to the soul, mind and body. Simply put, essential oils are a natural approach that can help anyone feel a lot better. The best news of all is that they help people who experience the neurological symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. The challenge everyone faces is to figure out which essential oils should be used to address specific symptoms. There are so many essential oils (and symptoms)! The "go to" expert with answers to such questions is Aromatherapist and registered nurse Jean Oswald. Jean has a profound knowledge about which essential oils help reduce symptoms that people with Parkinson's often experience. Essential oils are a safe and inexpensive therapy that helps many persons find relief from the symptoms of Parkinsons disease. They are a potent therapy indeed.

Sharry Edwards' work is now included in The Duke University Encyclopedia of New Medicine, by Leonard A. Wisnecki and The Scientific Basis of Integrative Medicine, by Lucy Anderson. The effects of BioAcoustic Biology, now accepted by these prestigious medical encyclopedias, have unlimited health and wellness potential. According to Edwards, "BioAcoustics Voice Spectral Analysis can detect hidden or underlying stresses in the body that are expressed as disease." Vocal prints can identify toxins, pathogens and nutritional supplements that are too low or too high. In addition, vocal prints can be used to match the most compatible treatment remedy to each client. The introduction of the proper low frequency sound to the body, indicated through voice analysis, has been shown to help people who currently experience the symptoms of Parkinsons Disease.
