Overview

For many with Parkinson's disease, adding complementary, alternative, and lifestyle therapies to a care plan can result in symptom relief and a higher quality of life without compromising conventional treatment. Written by a board-certified neurologist and expert in mind-body medicine, "Optimal Health with Parkinson's Disease" provides a thorough and up-to-date guide to a variety of therapies so that you and your health care team can make informed decisions to help you achieve optimal health. Learn the benefits of a holistic approach Find effective, low risk therapies for symptom relief such as tremor, muscle rigidity, depression, constipation, and insomnia Understand the pros and cons of popular diet and exercise approaches Determine which integrative therapies are best for you Personalize your treatment plan to help meet your goals

Dr. Giroux shares her experience and insights after many years of listening to the challenges faced day-to-day by her patients with neurological disorders. She combines her conventional medical training with mindfulness practice and integrative medical philosophy to provide a unique healing approach that empowers patients for optimal living. This excellent guide fully explains the value of this integrative approach, even when one is dealing with complex, chronic disease. I recommend it as a must-have for anyone living with Parkinson's disease.

Andrew Weil, MD, author of "Healthy Aging And 8 Weeks to Health"

Navigating Parkinson's diagnosis, progression, and care is challenging. Dr. Monique Giroux provides a roadmap not only of the therapeutic options - medicinal and complementary - but also of the perspective that patients and their loved ones can use to live their best life with Parkinson's disease.

Todd Sherer, CEO, The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research

If you or someone you love has Parkinson's disease, this book will become an essential resource. Dr. Giroux uses her vast clinical experience and encouraging philosophy to guide you to evidence-based integrative approaches that can help you thrive.

Victoria Maizes MD, Executive Director, University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, Professor of Medicine, Family Medicine, and Public Health
