Parkinsons Diet resources

April 11, 2022

April is Parkinson's Disease (PD) Awareness Month, and if you live with PD and are in your late 60s or beyond, combining what's best for you as you age with what you need to manage PD is vital to living the best life possible into later age.

Everything I say in Brain Body Food remains important if you live with Parkinson's Disease (PD), but my dietitian colleague, APD Amy Neill has a special interest in this area and has developed a wonderful website to help people with this challenging condition. Even if you do live with PD, if you are in your late 60s or beyond, it is always vital to combine what's best for you as you age with what you need to manage PD. My advice on living the best life possible into your later years is vital, but the information on Amy's excellent site will help you understand how to manage your symptoms while getting the best from your PD management strategies.
