UPDATED 2nd Edition.

Motivated by her husband Mike's PD, Anne Mikkelsen developed a cooking style that blends her training in traditional French cooking with emerging science on the importance of brain-healthy food. Mike, an award-winning potter and sculptor, has skillfully adapted his art to accommodate the advancing stages of PD. Together, they have overcome many of the obstacles of living with Parkinson's disease.

Take Charge of Parkinson's Disease is written for everyone affected by PD-those who have the disease, families, and caregivers. Its focus on a healthy lifestyle, emphasizing nutrition and exercise as a way to maintain optimal health, is interspersed with Anne's memoir of her journey with her husband as they discovered how to live well with PD. A chapter on issues of caregiving and the challenges it presents to a relationship enhances the book's comprehensive coverage of living with PD.
