PREVENTING PARKINSON'S: HOW TO CUT YOUR RISK BY STRENGTHENING YOUR MULTIPLE SHIELDS(TM) is the only book available that gives readers proactive lifestyle recommendations for optimizing health and lowering the risk of developing Parkinson's Disease. With over 1,000 references, this extraordinary, groundbreaking work provides cutting-edge, evidence-based research. It is a comprehensive compilation that will benefit both lay people and medical professionals alike. From the Foreward, by Judith Potashkin, PhD: "...Although there are numerous studies that have addressed lifestyle choices that are beneficial for Parkinson's Disease patients, there is no single source that summarizes and explains them to the non-scientist. In PREVENTING PARKINSON'S: HOW TO CUT YOUR RISK BY STRENGTHENING YOUR MULTIPLE SHIELDS(TM), Ben Weinstock, a Doctor of Physical Therapy, has solved this problem. He has written a comprehensive (yet easy to understand) guidebook. This source will help those who choose to follow on a path of optimal health. Dr. Weinstock thoroughly evaluates how the synergy of diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, avoidance of toxins, prevention of head injuries, and proper medical care can reduce one's chance of developing Parkinson's Disease. Thorough citations from current medical literature are provided throughout for those who would like additional information. For the more casual reader, 'Action Plans' are provided at the end of each chapter. These summarize the steps one can take immediately to reduce one's risk of developing Parkinson's Disease."
