‘I can relate to every page on your book, as it comes not only from an experienced practitioner, but well-read and researched too and someone who has been to a hell of Parkinson’s disease and is in recovery. This is an incredible achievement. There are many books on various health topics written by the “experts ” but with little substance or connection with the reader.’ — Danuta Hulajko, Naturopath, Herbalist, Nutritionist, NSW, Australia
Rethinking Parkinson’s Disease: The definitive guide to the known causes of Parkinson’s disease and proven reversal strategies 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. A major section of this work details strategies to create wellness and reverse the illness processes, 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 at people with Parkinson’s, families and supporters, and may be used as a self-help book. 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.
‘I think what makes this book so different to the many other books out there is that it gives those with PD, “hope”. In an ever increasingly “drug based” world, the idea of approaching and achieving such a result, without using prescribed pharmacological based medicine, is such an anomaly.’ — Ron Phelan, Bowen Practitioner and International Instructor
