Managing Parkinson’s With Diet

People with Parkinson’s disease often are concerned about fluctuation in their response to medication with their diet, especially protein. Levodopa (L-dopa) is the most used medication to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Dietary protein can compete with L-dopa to cross the blood-brain barrier and decrease the efficacy of the drug. Such problem of protein and levodopa competition usually appears years after the initiation of L-dopa therapy.

In this book, Yuchi Yang, a registered dietitian, offers you a step-by-step food and nutrition guide to managing Parkinson’s with diet:
 
Step 1: Risk Factors and Beneficial Behaviors Step 2: Research Findings on Managing Parkinson’s with DietStep 3: How to Design Your Own Meal PlansStep 4: Examples of 14 Healthy Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners, and Snacks
“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.” – Herbert Spencer. This book is designed to be a dietary guide that you can refer to and record your success. Each chapter includes some study findings and the author’s dietary suggestions. There are relevant tools and tables included in this book.
