Full Description


This book will become the indispensable bible for the millions living with this crippling neurological disease. The book explains the mechanisms behind Parkinson's and provides detailed information about common - and lesser-known - symptoms. It summarizes the primary means of diagnosis and covers all the conventional treatments along with their pros and cons. However, a large part of the book is devoted to the groundbreaking alternative treatments for Parkinson's including Dr. Perlmutter's revolutionary glutathione therapy - a safe effective programme designed around an over-the-counter natural supplement that has had astonishing success. Other alternative therapies are also covered. A special section of the book focuses on ways that patients can deal with symptoms such as sleep problems, freeze attacks, anxiety, depression, muscle spasms etc. Attention is also given to carers, friends and families of sufferers
