Having struggled with PD now in my 7th year, I found a very frank man in John Pepper... telling his struggle, and his findings. His findings resonate with my experience. If I had listened blindly to my neurologists, way back when, I would be struggling with the side-effects of various toxic medications. Doing a bit of homework I took a chance on what seemed to hold out a good benefit (the delay of progression) with what appeared to have side-effects compared to the placebo effect. The drug John uses is Selegiline. I started with Azilect. Both are MAOB inhibitors. That combined with a defined exercise program has given John a reversing of symptoms. I have taken azilect consistently for over 5 years--one month before being legal to purchase domestically. I dabbled with sinemet as well as mucuna pruriens (an herbal source of levodopa) and believe that the best medicine is love, exercise, a wise and healthy lifestyle with, dare I say, a faith in a higher healing power, and for my present use of the MAOB-inhibitor. John appears to represent such qualities...such thirst for healing truth. And wow!...his symptoms arising 45 years ago!
Please excuse my lack of skill in editing this review. I've read many books and a few from those who make great claims. This is my first review of a book that rings soundly of integrity,and I'm greatful to be his first reviewer. Thank you John for the willingness to speak your truth despite how stressors can easily hurt. As my dyslexic friend would say, Dog Bless you!

ps the book could have been better formatted in kindle version...but the content deserves5 stars and two thumbs up.

What I like best about this book:

1. It's very positive while not glossing over the difficulties of living with PD.
2. The author is clear that he's giving his experiences and opinion, not a medical diagnosis or medical recommendation for treatment.
3. It shares information not found in other sources about PD.

What I didn't like:

The author could have used more help from an editor who knows how to organize content, remove repetition, and keep the "flow" of the story going for an easier read.

Bottom line: this book won't win any awards for writing quality, but it is a must-read for anyone with PD who doesn't want to blindly submit to the medical establishment's recommended treatment regime. Caution: you'd better be willing to commit to long-term lifestyle and attitude changes to take advantage of the wisdom shared in this book!

Excellent book. As a person with Parkinson's I find this book fascinating. Many possibilities here for Parkinson's patients. The exercising certainly has helped my Parkinson's and dystonia!!!

I read this book because my 65 year old father recently was diagnosed with Parkinson's. I have to be honest - I am not a huge fan of his writing style, but there is definitely very valuable information in the book. After I read it, I passed it along to my father. He LOVES it, says he really relates to many items in the book and likes the style a lot. He is following the advice in the book and is feeling hopeful.

Even that it is in no way to replace medical treatments, this book describe
very clearly the swallowing process with the related problems, prevention and care. We think it is a must to read it.

We have learned first hand what exercise can do for Parkinson's patients. It is good to find someone else who has had these kind of results. My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease approximately 9 years ago. He was going down hill, so we
purchased him a Theracycle (this is a stationary bike that does the work for you). After six months, we began to see a difference.
He rides it three days each week and like John Pepper says, "It makes a difference". I plan to talk about the book at my next
Parkinson's support group meeting in August. Maybe it will inspire someone else with the disease to see they can make a difference with their quality of life.

Having Parkinson's myself, this is a very inspiring and hopeful book. There are things in this book that I, too, have experienced and would love to be able to email the author to talk about my experiences. A must read for any PWP.
