"The New Parkinson's Disease Treatment Book"
by Eric AhlSkog PhD, MD of the Mayo Clinic
Parkinson's is a complex evolutive disease. As PwPs [patients with Parkinson’s] it's difficult to assess medical prescriptions, especially when they do not deliver the benefits expected. It can be daunting to sort through all the well-intentioned advice from a support group such as healthunlocked.com.
I highly recommends purchase of the above book for the following reasons:
Author, Eric AhlSkog PhD, MD has 40 years of experience treating Parkinson's within a reputable institution, the Mayo Clinic. His current book is the 2015 updated edition of his popular 2005 book.
500 pages: A valuable reference hardbound book:
Easy-to-read, with both overviews and very detailed advice about treatments,
Practical, with an Index section of some 2,700 entries... allowing you to zero-in on your subject of interest,
A Glossary of some 200 medical descriptions of symptoms and drugs,
A strong advocate of C/L carbidopa/levodopa, AhlSkog presents many levodopa scenarii on how to address personal situations. He also reviews alternate treatments, and proposes some of them as complements to levadopa, and recommends dietary supplements. Regrettably he makes no mention of Dr Costantini’s Thiamine HCL B1 protocol.
Priced at $36, it's a bargain given the vital information it provides.
Disclaimer: I have nothing tangible to gain from my endorsement, but the satisfaction to potentially help a fellow PwP] .
