I Ask This Of You!

I have Parkinson's diseases and thought it would be nice to have a place where the contents of updated news is found in one place. That is why I began this blog.

I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible.

I am not responsible for it's contents. I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish.

This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.

Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns.

Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. I will not accept any information about Herbal treatments curing Parkinson's, dementia and etc. It will go into Spam.

This is a free site for all with no advertisements.

Thank you for visiting!

Lifestyle Changes That Can Improve Quality of Life for Parkinson’s Patients


In this video from Panorama Patient Network LLC, Neurologist Susan Fox talks about some of the lifestyle changes people living with Parkinson’s disease can make to improve their quality of life.

Fox begins by explaining that exercise is one of the most important things a person with Parkinson’s disease can do to improve their life. There isn’t any particular exercise that’s better for Parkinson’s patients, but she advises people pick something they enjoy so they’ll be more likely to do it regularly.
Diet is also something Fox recommends people living with the condition look into. Eating a healthy balanced diet and drinking lots of water will help patients avoid gastrointestinal issues often associated with Parkinson’s, such as constipation, and will help medication work to its full potential.
Sleep is the final issue Fox addresses. Getting regular quality sleep where you feel refreshed upon waking can help the brain produce dopamine. And if you feel fatigued during the day, having a short nap can help restore energy.
