Overview

Guidelines to Taking Charge of YOUR Parkinson's Disease

Take Charge of Parkinson’s Disease: Dynamic Lifestyle Changes to Put YOU in the Driver's Seat is for everyone affected by PD—those with the disease, families, and caregivers. With its focus on a healthy lifestyle that emphasizes nutrition and exercise as a way of maintaining optimal health, the book will appeal to readers who want to emphasize wellness and healthy aging while living with Parkinson’s disease.

Motivated by her husband Mike’s PD, Anne Mikkelsen developed a cooking style that blends her training in traditional French cooking and love of plants with emerging science on the importance of brain-healthy fruits, vegetables, spices, and herbs. Mike, an award-winning potter and sculptor, has skillfully adapted his art to accommodate the advancing stages of PD. Together, over nearly three decades, they have overcome the obstacles of living with Parkinson’s disease in a fashion that will be an inspiration to readers.

Healthy lifestyle recommendations and an extensive recipe section are interspersed with Anne’s memoir of her journey with her husband as they discover how to live well with Parkinson’s disease. A chapter on issues of caregiving and the challenges it presents to a relationship enhances the comprehensive coverage of living with PD.

    Highly Recommended- if you or a loved one have Parkinson's disease

    This book is both informative and interesting to read. It tells the story of one man's journey with Parkinson's disease, and also gives you valuable information about the disease and things that people with PD can do to help slow the progression. I have been reading about PD for over 5 years, and still found useful information in this book and the format of telling one man's story makes it interesting to read. Facts about PD are set apart from the story in side boxes. As a bonus, there are recipes for healthy meals as the author of the book is a cook!
