5-0 out of 5 stars book on parkinson's
This book was recommended by a friend who has parkinson's and she said it answered so many questions.I bought it for another who had recently learn that she has parkinson's and she had many questions.I would recommend it to anyone interested in acquiring knowledge to help yourself or others.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Info!
I'm 29 and was dx'd with a neurodegenerative disease(unsure which one) a little over a year ago after a barium swallow test confirmed oropharyngeal dysphagia.I believe I may have YOPD but I don't have resting tremor yet.So i've tried to educate myself with all these neuro diseases and this book is by far the best i've read on Parkinson's.My only question is about tremor and YOPD.Every other book i've read and all the info on the net says that most people with YOPD don't have tremor as a first symptom.This book says that tremor is almost always the first symptom of YOPD.So now I'm totally confused again. Besides that, it's the best on this subject.Remember, physicians learned what they know from reading books like these.They aren't magicians.Make sure you make a list of symptoms and educate yourself.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good concise information
This book provides detailed, concise, information concerning Parkinson's disease.It's easy to read and informative.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide Book To PD
Parkinson's disease also known as PD is a degenerative neurological disorder of the central nervous system that often impairs the sufferer's motor skills, speech, and other functions. It was named after the English Physician James Parkinson, who first described the illness in a paper he wrote in 1917 entitled "Essay on the Shaking Palsy" and even today we still refer to it as the "shaking palsy." It is estimated that over one million people in the USA have Parkinson's Disease and the numbers are growing each year.

It has been five years since the first edition of Parkinson's Disease: A Complete Guide For Patients & Families first appeared. As we are informed in the Preface of the second edition, much progress has been made in the management and treatment of PD. These important developments include a greater understanding of the fundamental causes of the disease, the role of genes and heredity in the disease, advances in the role of surgery as a treatment, and the introduction of new drugs to treat the symptoms. Increased research on disease-modifying or neuroprotective therapies that may slow the disease's progression has also been undertaken. All of these new avenues are discussed in the second edition in addition to who gets PD, signs and symptoms, diagnosing PD, treatment and other issues as illness, hospitalization, and present research. There is also considerable ink devoted to many nonmotor symptoms connected to PD that may occur, including depression, apathy, anxiety, sweating, sexual dysfunction, problems of memory, sleep problems, bladder problems, and constipation.There is an entire section devoted to questions and answers as well as a list of resources and a comprehensive index.

The book's organization is tidy without being overwhelming and each page manages to pack in a wealth of information in a focused manner. The tone is conversational and the many topics explored are extremely beneficial to anyone who has PD or is taking care of someone who has this illness. Every chapter begins with a summary in bold type of the topics to be discussed. The issue of how to explain unfamiliar terms and concepts to the layman is always vexing. However, the authors effectively overcome this problem by explaining terms in the text itself rather than have readers look to a glossary of terms or elsewhere. Moreover, the use of images, tables and diagrams throughout this comprehensive book are highly appropriate and add interest and greatly simplify the understanding of the symptoms of PD and its management.

William J. Weiner, M.D., is the director of the Maryland Parkinson's Disease Center and professor and chairman of the Department of Neurology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.He has authored many books and papers on PD. Lisa M. Shulman, M.D., is a professor of neurology at the University of Maryland. Anthony F. Lang, M.D., is a professor of neurology at the University of Toronto. Dr. Lang is the director of the Morton and Glorida Shulman Movement Disorders Center at the Toronto Western Hospital.

Product Description
Nearly one million Americans, including Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali, suffer from Parkinson's Disease. Now, a leader in the fight against Parkinson's, Dr. J. Eric Ahlskog of the Mayo Clinic, has written the definitive guide for patients and their families.Dr. Alhskog offers a crystal-clear, nuts-and-bolts approach to the treatment of PD, distilled from over twenty years of experience as a clinician and researcher. His goal is to educate the patient so that they can better team with their doctor to do battle with the disease, streamlining the decision-making process and enhancing their treatment. To do this, Dr. Ahlskog offers a gold mine of information: How do I know if I have PD? What kinds of tests can I take? What medications slow the progress of the disease? What if medications don't help my tremor? What kinds of movement problems may develop later? How can I cope with insomnia and daytime sleepiness, dizziness and depression, memory problems, paranoia, and delusions? Indeed, the book covers virtually every topic related to Parkinson's, from sexual impotence and skin rashes, to the role of nutrition, exercise, and physical therapy. In addition, Dr. Ahlskog discusses brain surgery (though he urges that patients only consider this as a last resort) and such experimental therapies as stem cell transplantation and gene therapy. There are also lists of support and advocacy groups and Internet sites that focus on Parkinson's.The ultimate guide to symptoms and treatment, this superb book is the first place patients should turn for reliable, easy-to-grasp information on Parkinson's disease. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The PD Treatment Book
If anyone in family has PD, this is the best help you can give them.It is concise and most informative and can give you info that you can share with the doctors.Most doctors are not that well informed about PD unless they are specialists and then you can both give the person with PD the best help they need.

4-0 out of 5 stars Doctor on call 24/7

I would recommend this book for anyone who is facing the challenges associated with Parkinson's Disease. Every question imaginable is listed however on occasion the wording can be a little challenging without a medical degree. Overall I would rate this book as a "must have" in your journey to better understanding this disease.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource book
I found this book extremely helpful in answering so many of my questions about my husband's Parkinson's disease. It will hold a prominent place on my bookshelf for easy reference for just about every aspect of the disease. The index is easy to use and directs the reader to the proper place for answering each question that may arise. Well worth the reasonable price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Informative for Parkinsons's patient and caregiver ---
This is an excellent book written in layman's terms.Easy to read and easy to understand.My husband (Parkinson's patient) and I have both found it very helpful and informative.We highly recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Parkinsons Disease Treatment Book
Being just diagnosed with Parkinsons, I was anxious to learn more about Parkinsons and what my long-range prognosis might be.My Neurologist recommended this book, and I quickly ordered it from Amazon.The author practices at Mayo Clinic, and recommends the use of Carbidopa/Levidopa as a first treatment course for those with Parkinsons.After reading 3/4 of the book, I feel much more familiar and comfortable with the subject of Parkinsons as well as the various courses of treatment, of which there are several.I can recommend this book wholeheartedly to others who are just beginning their association with this disease as well as to those who are several years into the experience. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most helpful resources
Delay the Disease is one of the most helpful resources I have found for PD sufferers.The exercises are well illustrated and organized by level of difficulty.One of the more interesting sections focuses on exercises to do before going to bed.Somehow exercising before turning in for the night never crossed my mind.But, now that I've added that to my regimen, I do sleep better.

This book is right on task. Add it to your library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent exercise book
This book is terrific for those with Parkinson's disease, but stretching can benefit anyone, especially the elderly.
I have read and heard more and more from doctors about the benefits of exercise for Parkinson's patients.There is no cure for this disease, so any information on slowing the progression of the disease is useful. It is a disease that manifests a different set of symptoms for each sufferer, but some commonalities can beback pain, loss of balance, postural instability and slowness or freezing of movement. Soft or slurred speech is also a common symptom. Many Parkinson patients have mask like facial expressions due to infrequent blinking and loss of facial muscle control and tone.
This book has exercises that stretch various muscle and muscle groups to help keep or regain balance and stability.There are exercises to keep the face muscles loose and keep up one's speech volume.
There are levels of exercises so one can do the exercises seated and move on to more vigorous movement, or continue at the seated level.
Each exercise is accompanied by photos which are very clear.The book is in a loose leaf format which makes it very easy to keep open.
I find it extremely useful. It helps keep me as limber and balanced as possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended by Cleveland Clinic neurologist...
My husband is in the early stages of Parkinson's Disease. His neurologist suggested that he begin these exercises & also that he begin riding an exercise bike, set on no resistance, for 80-90 RPM, for at least 15 minutes, 6 days a week(this is an exciting study that is proving to help relieve some PD patients' symptoms)

Not knowing if there was a difference between the book & the dvd, we purchased both Delay the Disease -Exercise and Parkinson's Disease & Delay the Disease Exercise and Parkinson's Disease DVD.My husband has since learned that he didn't need the DVD. The book's photos and instructions are clear enough for him to understand. If you'd rather watch & exercise along, the DVD is the best choice for you.

The book is spiral bound and lays flat; you can easily see the photos & read the instructions as you exercise.

The DVD is nice because the exercises are performed outside. You can follow along with David Zid, a professional fitness instructor.When David Zid researched exercise & PD, he found only a few basic exercises had been designed for the PD patient. He knew that he could help PD patients and developed this exercise plan.

Exercise Options
This book is broken down into several sections. I'll try to summarize:
Wake Up Call, Walking & Balance Drills, Cardiovascular Exercise, Strength Training --Workout with weights, Non-weight (Core) Days--. Facial & Voice Exercises, Night Time Stretching.

The exercises are broken down into levels of difficulty:
~~~Level A - performed in a seated position, the basic exercise which everyone should be able to accomplish no matter their PD severity.
~~~Level B - tougher than A. More balance & stability is needed; some exercises may be performed in the standing position if applicable to your level.
~~~Level C - is the hardest. Good balance, stability, and hand mobility are needed.

The morning and evening exercises take about 15 minutes each.The other exercises take 45 min to an hour for my husband to complete.

Because my husband is in the early stages of PD, he's not sure how much the exercises are helping him, but he knows it can't hurt.PD is progressive, but can be greatly improved with an exercise routine.

Product Description

Parkinson's disease is a movement disorder characterized by tremor, stiffness, and slow gait. It affects 500,000 people in the United States, with approximately 50,000 new cases diagnosed annually. But its impact is much wider. Family members with little understanding of the disease often find themselves struggling to help their loved one navigate the complexities of the health care system. Patients wonder, Which treatments are best for me? Will I be able to live on my own? Should I join a drug trial? In this straightforward, compassionate guide, Nutan Sharma and Elaine Richman address these concerns and more. They provide a thorough review of the etiology, diagnosis, and current treatment of Parkinson's, with special consideration given to the effect on family dynamics and routines--including the often neglected topics of long-term care and sexual function. The authors also review the pros and cons of various alternative therapies, including nutritional supplements, massage therapy, and traditional Chinese medicine.

Too often, with Parkinson's disease, a loved one serves as medical interpreter, patient advocate, and caregiver. In Parkinson's Disease and the Family, Nutan Sharma and Elaine Richman draw on the latest research and clinical practice techniques to offer valuable suggestions for managing patient care and, perhaps more important, for healing the family unit.

"The IKE Disease," is a one on one counseling session with the reader (teenagers) encouraging them to make decisions leading to a happy, successful life.IKE is used in high schools for group counseling and is always well received by the students.The book is a must read for parents, and their children, because it sets forth positive concepts for young people.There many good books written instructing parents on raising their children.IKE is different in that it offers positive steps, encouraging teenagers to do something to help themselves.

5-0 out of 5 stars This was a good book
A comprehensive collection of current and on-going research, treatments and case studies, this amazingly small book provides a great summary of everything you will read about Parkinson's in random web searches.The best part is that it is completely comprehensible for the lay person.I especially recommend this book for family members such as parents and siblings who may not be involved in day to day care-partnering with the Parkinson's Patient, but who may want to have an understanding of what is happening (and what is going to happen) to their family member.

5-0 out of 5 stars Addressing the daily living challenges of Parkinson's
Parkinson's is a movement disorder which affects 500,000 people in the US and adds thousands of new cases annually, but despite its prevalence, families often have little resources to guide them in considering treatment options, drug trail potentials, family dynamics, and disruptions and adjustments to daily living. Parkinson's Disease And The Family: A New Guide addresses all manner of family concerns and is a top pick for this reason, going where competitors do not in addressing the daily living challenges of Parkinson's. Especially appropriate for the non-specialist general reader, Parkinson's Disease And The Family is ideal for community libraries.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book for anyone affected by Parkinson's Disease.
This is by and far the best book that I read on the subject of PD. It is comprehensive, written by a PD specialist, is easy to read, considers many treatment options, and is reassuring. Parkinson's Disease is so frightening that many people, including doctors, think that little can be done about it; this book shows you why that is not so and provides information so that you can control your disease and still live your life.
Thank you Doctor!

Despite my stack of books on parkinson's,I find myself almost always refering to this book for most of my questions. And answers are usually there in a nondepressing style. What's more the book goes into alternative methods of treatment as well as the conventional, Many things your doctor won't take the time to tell you.

5-0 out of 5 stars an incredibly invaluable resource
I've had Parkinson's for a few years now, and, at age 51, have the ignoble distinction of being among those deemed "early onset." This book was among the first I bought when I was diagnosed, and stayed in the pile of books doctors and medical associations were gracious and generous enough to give me. Once I got to it, however, I quickly realized it is among the best. Descriptions, definitions, explanations... All are presented in clear, straightforward, easy-to-understand language, all are thorough without getting long-winded, and all are compassionate without being sappy or unrealistically "everything will be great." I appreciate the even-handedness of both her allopathic and holistic treatment descriptions, not offering much in the way of criticism nor over-the-top praise, just presenting the many options available. In glancing through the table of contents as i write this, to refresh my memory, i find it hard to really encapsulate this book, it is so packed with useful information. Like, how to find a great doctor. Suffice it to say that, from my experience and my belief in balancing both western and alternative medicine, this book is invaluable, for patient, friends, and family. ... Read more

I admit to being prejudiced - the authors are my daughter and son-in-law (43 and 47 years old) that are very active in the international advocacy and support for PD patients. Since I can't take the disease away from my children and I live 800 miles from them, I am "helping" by starting a PD support group in my community.The book is used as a study guide in our meetings. The group feels the personal touch the authors convey.It's like having a conversation with them.I must say I am in awe of the authors and all the research and personal experience they've brought to the book. You'll like it too.And remember, you may have Parkinson's Disease but PD does not have you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Relating to others
If you have parkinson's, as I do, or if someone in your life does, than this is a must read.It is full of information for the sufferer, but its most important contribution is in helping both victims of the decease and those who suffer nearby understand what is happening.It is wonderful to have people close to you read this book.It aides in how to continue life on this wonderful planet.I recommend it.

Even though we are not finished reading this book, my husband (who has Parkinson's) and I are finally getting answers to all our questions.The authors write in an easy-to-understand format and do not hold anything back (unlike some doctors).

Product Description

Addressing a disease that affects half a million Americans today—with 100,000 new cases diagnosed annually—this reference emphasizes how treatment and education are vital to maintaining the best quality of life possible. Coauthored by a former physician who has lived with Parkinson’s for 20 years, this handbook discusses both the basics of the disease, for which there is no “cure,” and ways that patients can stay active and maintain independence. Additional topics include symptoms and stages, treatment options, the role of self-help, the emotional side of the illness, day-to-day coping, benefits of exercise, choosing the right doctor, and care for caregivers. Going beyond standard medical information, this unique study also offers a sense of hope, featuring inspirational quotes from dozens of Parkinson’s patients.

5-0 out of 5 stars Understanding PD--A Self-Help Guide--A review
A well-written, nicely organized basic introduction and self-help guide written from the perspective of a physician suffering from Parkinson's Disease (PD).This paperback manual explores both the physical and mental sides of dealing with a chronic, devastating illness.It provides strategies and tips for both the sufferer and the caregiver.My only reservation is that, at times, I wished the author would have provided more detailed information on specific, recommended techniques designed to aid the patient.Highly recommended reading.

4-0 out of 5 stars Light Informative Reading
"Understanding Parkinson's Disease" is a well-written book introducing a patient to life as a Parkinson's patient.I purchased this book to pre-screen it for my parents and found that it was a good book togive them because of it's positive discussion about the disease.If youknow a Parkinson's patient who refuses to read up about the disease(because they don't want to read about all the restrictions they will haveto face in their future) this is a good "first" book.The"Self Help Guide" has a pro-active upbeat approach to workingwith the disease.It doesn't spend a lot of time belaboring how miserablethe future will be, but focuses on how to deal with the present. SinceDr. Cram has Parkinson's Disease himself his viewpoints about the diseasehelp give credibility and enlightenment to the reader.This booksummarized all aspects of the disease while showing how to live with thesymptoms.It is a good starter book for preparing to live with Parkinson'sDisease. Purchase "Caring for the Parkinson patient" by Huttonfor a more in-depth review of Parkinson's and how to live (or care forsomeone) with the disease.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally...A plain speaking book about Parkinson's Disease
Dr. David Cram has written a very touching and informative book about Parkinson's Disease that I encourage anyone who has been diagnosed with PD or who knows someone who has been diagnosed with PD to check out. Dr. Cramwho was dianosed ten years ago with PD writes from personal knowledge andcovers everything from symptoms to the newest drug therapies. I alsoenjoyed the comments interspersed throughout the book from patients,physicians, nurses, counselors and therapists. This is a very encouragingbook and I recommend it highly! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Parkinson's Disease & Art of moving
Good book for Parkinson's patients and caregivers. Support for excercising and ideas for strengthing muscles and movement!

5-0 out of 5 stars Exercise and PD
This book reveals more than I expected about how to counter the symptoms of Parkinson's by deliberately practicing movements. The author has an understanding of the challenges faced by PD sufferers. I've found re-affirmation of some of my own deductions about moving better by intentionally visualizing an action before willing to accomplish a movement. I am convinced that exercise is the best medicine to slow the progression of this disease. The author's experience conducting exercise classes in conjunction with medical institutions makes his suggested exercise routine invaluable. I've never heard many of the insights offered in this volume anywhere else. For example, there's a section explaining the benefits of yawning. Another section tells how to use gravity to help turn over in bed.

I've added exercises from this book to my attempt to counter PD symptoms. I was diagnosed ten years ago. Right now, I attend water exercise and Tai Chi classes, walk at least twenty minutes a day, square dance or contra dance at least twice a week, and do several exercises from a physical therapist to improve my posture. With the latest findings about the plasticity of the brain, I think that we should concentrate on moving more to develop new neural pathways which over-ride the old habitual movements that used to be 'automatic." This book is a good place to start because it contains strategies to ameliorate specific PD symptoms before they develop.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of good exercises.
The exercise directions, with photos, are easy to follow. There is a companion two disc DVD set available from the author's web-site. The DVDs are easier to learn from, but the book is also very informative and useful.

Product Description
Conventional management of Parkinson's disease (PD) is limited.The pharmaceutical and surgical options that are available have significant side effects and only correct symptoms for a limited period of time.Even with the best conventional treatment, the disease progresses and becomes severely disabling.No existing conventional therapies that the progress of the disease; available medicines only treat symptoms temporarily.Conventional medicine views the course of the disease as "progressive" and "irreversible."Many patients, who are only partially satisfied with conventional medicine, seek alternative and complementary options in an attempt to slow, stop, or reverse the disease process. This book has several functions:- It is a science-based reference manual.- It is inspiring and empowering to patients.- It is educational for both patients and neurologists.- It is entertaining.- It fosters an understanding between conventional and complementary providers.Chapters on , Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Aluminum, Antioxidants, Beta-carotene, Calorie Restriction, Carnitine, Chelation, Cholesterol, Choline, Coenzyme Q-10, Constipation, Creatine, Curcumin (Turmeric), Dairy, DHA (fish oil), Fava Beans, Glutathione, H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori), Homocysteine, Iron, Manganese, Marijuana (Cannabis sativa), Mucuna pruriens, Velvet bean, Cowhage, Niacin, Tea, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, and other topics. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
This book is is simplistic and preachy with an anti-Western-medicine bent. The book is not useless; it does provide a decent summary of many of the alternative PD therapies but one can get 90% of the same information free from better public sources and without the "woo-woo". The author should have read Carl Sagan's "The Demon Haunted World". If you are so lazy and so stupid that you cannot do your own reasearch on the internet and you also enjoy being reinforced in your "doctors don't know" beliefs then you will enjoy the book. Otherwise save your money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Natural Therapies for Parkinson's Disease
I found this book very informative and easy to understand. Plus,(even though I am a trained herbalist) I found the section on constipation of excellent value with info I hav'nt read before. Also the dietary and supplementary considerations are well thought out and easy to undertake. All in all an excellent book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Integrative approach to Parkinson's Disease
Dr. Mischley presents an integrative approach to Parkinson's Disease, a hopeful stew of information about how one might address the disease from perspectives beyond that of conventional medicine. The book is written for people who have relatives with Parkinson's (or as Dr. Mischley calls them, those looking to discourage the disease), for sufferers of Parkinson's who might benefit from additional therapies, and for medical doctors who want to know the scientific rationale for her recommendations. It provides practical suggestions based on more than 80 research papers and Dr. Mischley's many years of work with Parkinson's patients.

Natural Therapies for Parkinson's Disease is an excellent guidebook and an educational reference text. This easy-to-read paperback belongs in the toolkit of anyone associated with this debilitating disease.

Dr. Mischley is the best-known Naturopathic Parkinson's expert in the country.She has given me encouragement that can add years to my life.Her book captures the basics.
She respects the medications prescribed by Movement Disorder Specialists and adds her knowledge of diet, mineral and vitamin supplementation to help slow the progression of Parkinson's Disease.The book is well organized.If you have a problem, such as constipation, nutrition, sleep, or some other symptom of the disease, within seconds you can find her recommendations.Her knowledge is based on solid research and concentrated first-hand work with Parkinson's patients for more than ten years.This is a Must Read.

Case studies are used to expandon this basic understanding by illustrating the utility of the insights indealing with the disease in actual patients.

Product Description
Roughly 1.9 million people are afflicted with Parkinson's disease and, according to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, that number is on the rise!

Parkinson's Disease Treatment Guide for Physicians will comprehensively cover Parkinson's disease (PD), including diagnosis, testing, prognosis, and possible causes. Its primary focus will be on treatment, specifying appropriate drugs, doses, and common side effects. It will address not only the treatment of motor problems (tremor, gait, etc.), but everything else that routinely arises in a PD practice, including osteoporosis prevention, blood pressure, sexual, bowel, or bladder dysfunction, dementia, depression, common skin rashes, and more.

This book will mirror Dr. Ahlskog's earlier book, The Parkinson's Treatment Book: Partnering with Your Doctor to Get the Most from Your Medications (2005). Each chapter in the current book will follow the same outline and cover nearly the same material as in each chapter of the earlier patient book, but it will be more succint and direct, with many teaching points summarized wtih bullet points or in small tables. In effect, the clinician and patient can both be reading, or have read, the same material. ... Read more

Product Description
Parkinson's disease becomes apparent only after substantial loss (>60%) of the dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra. By this time there has already been widespread neural inclusion formation in the peripheral and central nervous system of patients with the disease, although this has only been recognized more recently. Degeneration in these widespread regions of the peripheral and central nervous system is now known to impact on disease symptoms, progression and treatment over time. This book aims to provide a comprehensive review of these non-dopamine lesions in Parkinson's disease by assessing our current knowledge of their presence and pathophysiology, how they relate to different symptoms and, where relevant, discuss how they may be potentially treated. The book addresses most of the known symptoms that occur in patients with Parkinson's disease. In addition to the classic motor triad, motor speech, eye movements, olfactory dysfunction, autonomic dysfunction, pain and sensory abnormalities, sleep disturbances, depression and apathy, dopamine dysregulation syndromes, hallucinations and psychoses, cognitive impairment and dementia, and systemic manifestations are all reviewed. Early selective cell loss in non-dopaminergic regions is highlighted (the glutamate projection neurons of the presupplementary motor cortex and caudal intralaminar thalamus) in addition to the widespread inclusion formation in many regions outside the basal ganglia that characterize the disease. Overall this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the lesions associated with the most common symptoms found in patients with Parkinson's disease. ... Read more
