Overview
Los pronosticos mas recientes respecto de la enfermedad de Parkinson resultan sorprendentes. Si estos vaticinios son certeros, debemos admitir que estamos al borde de una inminente pandemia. Resulta aterrador ver como en los paises mas poblados, el numero de personas con Parkinson se duplicara hasta llegar a los 30 millones en el ano 2030. Tal vez se antojan increibles estas estadisticas crecientes; no obstante, son plenamente reales, ya que obedecen a una mayor expectativa de vida de la poblacion. En efecto, la edad, es un factor de riesgo innegable e inevitable en el desarrollo de la enfermedad de Parkinson. Asi, a mayor expectativa de vida, sera mayor el numero de enfermos. Dicho de otro modo, si todos vivieramos hasta los 100 anos, es probable que desarrollaramos la enfermedad de Parkinson, lo cual generaria una crisis mundial. En mis viajes por el mundo como Director Medico de la Fundacion Nacional de Parkinson, he conocido tanto a personas afectadas por este padecimiento, cuanto a sus parientes y amigos. Una de las preguntas mas frecuentes es " que debo hacer para mejorar mi vida y la de mis allegados?" Para satisfacer la sed de conocimiento de todas estas personas, decidi escribir este libro, a fin de compartir todos estos secretos para vivir feliz a pesar de la enfermedad de Parkinson. Para ello, coadyuvaron nuestros colegas y medicos en formacion, quienes generosamente tradujeron estas paginas a varios idiomas. Internationally renowned as both a neurologist and a leading researcher, Dr. Okun has been referred to as, "the voice of the Parkinson's disease patient." He has an international following on the National Parkinson Foundation's Ask the Doctor web-forum. His many books and internet blog posts are brimming with up-to date and extremely practical information. He has a talent for infusing his readers with positivity and optimism. In his current book, he unmasks the important secrets applicable to every Parkinson's disease patient. For some sufferers the secrets have translated into walking again, for others they have restored voices, and for many they have resulted in the lifting of a depression, anxiety and desperation cloud. "There isn't any joking with Dr. Okun about the 10 Secrets for a Happier Life in Parkinson's disease. This book is a critical resource for Parkinson's disease patients and families from around the world who speak different languages, but suffer from very similar and often disabling symptoms." -Muhammad Ali The book addresses current Parkinson's disease issues and also details emerging therapies (DBS, stem cells, vaccines, gene therapy, optogenetics). Okun masterfully breaks down all of the science into an easy to follow and pleasurable reading experience. Parkinson's Treatment: 10 Secrets to a Happier Life is available in over 20 language translations, and also in an audio version. Dr. Okun has truly helped thousands of Parkinson's disease patients and families discover the core values necessary to achieve happiness despite living with a chronic disease."
