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.
