APRIL 2013 Dr. Michael Okun, MD, UF Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration & National Medical Director, National Parkinson Foundation emailed us about his new book, Parkinson’s Treatment: 10 Secrets to a Happier Life now available on Amazon.com in over 20 languages. He is considered to be a world authority on Parkinson’s disease both in the areas of clinical care and in research. He has answered over 20,000 patient questions on the National Parkinson Foundation free only forum, Ask the Doctor.
Good living advice is timeless. He covers how to prepare for hospital stays, when to take meds, sleeping, exercise, depression and addiction-like symptoms. No doubt, a couple of those secrets have to be ‘have fun’ and ‘live life to the fullest’, don’t you think?
