I am 71 and a bit years old and was diagnosed a year or maybe 2 ago. Found it excruciating painful to accept but having a super positive wife helped me to take an optimistic attitude. I suffered many a fall not realizing '' I am a Parkinsonian '', today was not like yesterday, limitations tightened. While seeing the neurologist I who found hard to walk, began a steady, reverend exercise regime thanks to my youth in
a boarding school. I began, one step at a time, progressed to 55x250 a day + exercises but not any bending forward as I have a tendency to be thrown /pushed forward.
In our diet we use coconut oil & shavings on a regular basis, a life long and a cultural mainstay. Last time I saw my general physician, I was so upbeat, he remarked, '' folks who didn't know of your illness would find it hard to believe.'' Shall share more of the same with my fellow Parkinsonians in my next mail.''
'' Life is too short to let ANY illness pull one down, be positive, 1/2 the battle is won !! "
