Anne Mikkelsen, a professional chef, includes recipes that combine the widest variety of anti-oxidant, nutrient-rich ingredients, as well as liberal doses of herbs and spices known to favorably impact the brain and potentially reduce the effects of the disease.

The approach to general wellness will resonate with the generation of readers in their fifties and beyond who want to emphasize optimal wellness, healthy aging, and living with any chronic disease.

This is a very good basic book about Parkinson's decease. It covers so much information in an easy-to-read format. It is a book you can just read through, or concentrate on the chapters that you're most interest in. It is a good book to review often is you or someone you know has been diagnosed with Parkinson's decease.

My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's 6 years ago. We found the book to be very well written and found it interesting how many of their experiences mirrored many of our own experiences. It was good to read about how they've dealt with this disease, which has helped us/me better understand and cope with it ourselves. A must read for not only people who have PD, but their family members.

I don't know about "dynamic." It's a book, I don't expect "dynamic." I haven't tried to follow it.

Excellent info on Parkinson's disease I recommend it to anyone who is dealing with this disease.
I am a nurse by profession, though I cannot practice at the moment because of a disability. I was the primary caregiver for my mother, who recently passed from cancer, but carried the diagnosis of another neruological illness for nearly 50 years. Her baby brother had Parkinson's Disease as did a dear friend. Two of these individuals were incredibly hopeful people, not letting their neurological illness rule them, but chose to take control where they could. I realized when my uncle and my friend were diagnosed with PD that my understanding of the condition was limited to now dated information from my early training (I worked in pediatrics, and PD is not something we saw) or from reading Michael J Fox's brilliant books. I hoped that this book would be a good refresher course for me, as well as catch me up on some of the newer information out there.

This book is primarily the story of Ann and Mike Mikkelsen and how they have reshaped their lives to accommodate Mike's needs related to his PD, both in terms of treatment and prevention. It is a tale of creativity, love, patience, endurance, and hope. At 77, Mike is still involved in his art, exercises regularly and even drives (I know a number of 77 year olds without PD who should not be on the roads.) Anne, his primary caregiver and former professional chef, has retrained herself to provide the mental, emotion, and physical skills necessary to help Mike and also redesigned her approach to food to help support his nutritional needs and provide an optimal diet. That it is high in antioxidants, fruits veggies and whole grains and low in animal proteins isn't hurting her any either. The book is smattered with recipes and stories, making an easy read. There is medical information sandwiched between, but most folks will get a lot of that from their primary medical provider. What this book pursues more is hope.

It struck me that the basic message of this book is not limited to PD. It is a helpful one for anyone and any family mired in chronic illness and/or neurological disease. It would have some help for the family of a end stage cancer patient as easily as someone with beginning Alzheimer's. The message is universal, written in easy, clear terms: take control of what you can, strive for optimal health and stay hopeful.

My one complaint is that I would have loved to see some of Mikes sculptures in the book. There's just one b/w picture of his birds toward the end. They sound bright, colorful and optimistic. I bet they would have looked lovely as part of the cover montage, too.
