I found this book very informative and easy to understand.

Interestingly sweating from vigorous exercise will increase the elimination of aluminum from the body as will saunas.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Laurie Mischley's new book, Natural Therapies for Parkinson's Disease, will provide both information and solace for those with Parkinson's Disease and their families. It's a book for anyone who is not content to treat Parkinson's passively with drugs but who wants a diet and a nutritional regimen that will help slow or even reverse the progression of the disease. It's also an important read if you have someone with Parkinson's in your family, as Mischley's book is as much about prevention as about treatment.

Natural Therapies for Parkinson's Disease is research- and science-based. It contains a long list of references to medical studies that support its claims. Perhaps most important, Dr. Mischley's book is a book to take to your doctor. It's written as a bridge between the medical and naturopathic worlds--to educate both patients and neurologists about a holistic, science-based alternative to purly symptomatic treatment.

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.

I am a physician with Parkinson's Disease. I stayed up all night reading this book. I learned more about my disorder from this integrative NP than I had learned from my allopathic neurology associates during the past 20 years,

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.

This is a wonderful guide for those interested in the role that nutrition especially plays in addressing the treatment of Parkinson's Disease. As a person recently diagnossed with PD, I have faiathfully researched the landscape of pharmecuticals, vitamins, nutraceuticals and supplements of all kinds;also, physical activities including TAi Chi, yoga and Pilates and exercise. And a host of conventional medical approaches together with naturopathic and alternative medicines.

Dr. Mischley touches on just about everything noted above and summarizes clearly the benefits and shortcomings of each in an independent and thoughtful manner. She also speaks respectfully within her text to the physicians in all disciplines and yet has done so in a manner understandable by the lay person. In short, this is a quick and easy while compelling read and I think it has something for everyone ... especially PD patients loooking for something instructive enabling them to addresss their issues directly.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Penn on March 27, 2010
Format: Paperback
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.

14 of 20 people found the following review helpful By prestonpdx on December 15, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is a fine reference on supplements and diet factors relating to PD. It basically adds more pills (supplements) to the pills (drugs) your neurologist might prescribe.

It completely ignores non-chemical therapies, such as acupuncture, acupressure, massage, neurofeedback, tai chi, qi gong, yoga, forced-rate bicycling, dancing, LSVT BIG, LSVT LOUD, kayaking, and boxing. Exercise therapies, in particular, are the only suggestions consistently made by neurologists other than drugs, so it is particularly surprising that Mischley doesn't even mention exercise, which is certainly "natural."

She does mention art therapy, which is strange, as it is far less known and studied than many of the other therapies that I have just listed.

At worst, this book is a disservice to PD patients, because it suggests that the only way to deal with PD effectively is to take more pills than your neurologist might prescribe.

This book is very informative. Gives a lot of good ideas/therapies for PWP's to try. I like the "arrows" that point to information that is recommended for action. These arrows make it easy to go back for important reference items. And, the "Doc Boxes" have information your doctor may need to know about certain therapies.
