As many as one million Americans, including Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali, suffer from Parkinson's Disease. Now, a leader in the fight against Parkinson's, Dr. J. Eric Ahlskog of the Mayo Clinic, has revised and updated his definitive guide for patients and their families. Dr. Ahlskog offers a crystal-clear, nuts-and-bolts approach to the treatment of PD, distilled from more than 30 years of experience as a clinician and researcher. His goal is to educate patients so that they can better team with their doctors to do battle with the disease, streamlining the decision-making process and enhancing their treatment. To do this, Dr. Ahlskog offers a gold mine of information: How do I know if I have PD? What kinds of tests can I take? What medications slow the progress of the disease? What if medications don't help my tremor? What kinds of movement problems may develop later? How can I cope with insomnia and daytime sleepiness, dizziness and depression, memory problems, paranoia, and delusions? Indeed, the book covers virtually every topic related to Parkinson's, from sexual impotence and skin rashes, to the role of nutrition, exercise, and physical therapy. In addition, Dr. Ahlskog discusses brain surgery (though he urges that patients only consider this as a last resort) and such experimental therapies as stem cell transplantation and gene therapy. There are also lists of support and advocacy groups and Web sites that focus on Parkinson's. The ultimate guide to symptoms and treatment, this thoroughly updated Second Edition is the first place patients should turn for reliable, easy-to-grasp information on Parkinson's disease.

Some people with Parkinson's Disease find they can't speak very well while others lose the ability to write or control a knife and fork. Some get treated like children while others are ignored. Many manage their disease for years and continue to live extremely fruitful and fulfilling lives. But it's always there, in the back of one's mind. How long will I keep this up? Over 120,000 people in the UK have Parkinson's Disease, and this figure is rising. It can strike very early in life, as with the actor Michael J. Fox, or much later. It is a progressive, neurological disorder, treated mainly with drug therapy but also alleviated with physical therapy and diet. Although each person with Parkinson's is different, and the ability to perform movements may differ from one day to the next, Parkinson's has a dramatic effect on a person's quality of life and also affects those around the sufferers. This is a compassionate and helpful guide to the disease and its treatments. The good news is that Parkinson's can be controlled very effectively for many years with the right treatment and care. This definitive handbook allows you to ask all the right questions and to understand the disease so that the answer to the question above is, 'as long as possible'.

Parkinson's Treatment English Edition: 10 Secrets to a Happier Life is available in over 20 language translations, so that all worldwide cultures can have access to the secrets that can help those living with Parkinson's disease. Additionally the book addresses all of the new and emerging Parkinson's disease therapies (stem cells, gene therapy, optogenetics, etc.).The most humbling experience of my life has been the time I have spent with families, and with patients suffering from Parkinson's and chronic neurological diseases. I use the word humbling, because time after time, in person, and also on the web forum, we have uncovered simple and addressable issues and secrets that have changed people's lives. For some sufferers it has meant walking again, for others it has restored their voices, and for many it has resulted in the lifting of a depression, anxiety and desperation cloud that has obscured their dreams, and robbed them of potential unrealized happiness. I never assume a sufferer or family member is aware of the “secrets” that may lead to hope and to a happier life. We must share these secrets, and this is the purpose of this book.Each chapter of this book reveals an important secret, and with each secret I will explain the insight, the rationale, the empiricism, and the science behind it. In each chapter I will also try to reveal a little more about myself, and a lot more about the patients and talented clinicians who gifted the Parkinson's secrets. These patients planted the seed of faith. They learned to grow hope, and they discovered the core values necessary to achieve happiness despite the chronic illness of Parkinson's disease.

In addition to these "motor symptoms," patients with Parkinson's Disease are also affected by "non-motor symptoms" including cognitive disturbances such as dementia, depression and hallucinations as well as autonomic dysfunction. Diagnosis of the disease is crucial and misdiagnosis is frequent. Enormous advances have been made in recent decades in the understanding of the clinical features, aetiology, pathology of the disease, as well as in the provision of new treatments. Part of the Oxford Neurology Library series, this concise and practical pocketbook provides an up-to-date practical text on the management of Parkinson's Disease. Chapters outline the causes and clinical features of the disease, as well as its diagnosis and assessment. Specific chapters concentrate on the management of motor and non-motor symptoms, as well as on the mansgement of early Parkinson's Disease. This pocketbook will serve as a useful guide for the non-specialist neurologist, including those in training, and also those wishing to develop an interest in movement disorders.
