The fundamental guide to the most effective treatments for Parkinson's Disease, from a Mayo Clinic doctor with thirty years of clinical and research experience. In this second edition follow-up to the extremely successful first edition, Dr. Ahlskog draws on thirty years of clinical experience to present the definitive guide to dealing with all aspects of Parkinson's Disease, from treatment options and side effects to the impact of the disease on caregivers and family. Dr. Ahlskog's goal is to educate patients so that they can better team up with their doctors to do battle with the disease, streamlining the decision-making process and enhancing their treatment. To do this, Dr. Ahlskog offers a gold mine of information, distilled from his years of experience treating people with Parkinson's at the Mayo Clinic. In addition to providing a comprehensive account of Parkinson's medications, this book also examines additional aspects of treatment, such as the role of nutrition, exercise, and physical therapy. Although many commendable texts have been written on the subject of Parkinson's Disease, their discussions of treatment have not been in depth. Dr. Ahlskog sifts through aspects of the disease in order to give the reader a comprehensive sense of Parkinson's and the best available treatment options. With a broader understanding of the disease and the available options, patients are able to make more informed choices, and doctors are able to provide more tailored care. This book delivers hopeful, helpful, and extensive information to all parties concerned: patients, caregivers, and doctors. The ultimate guide to symptoms and treatment, this thoroughly updated second edition is the first place patients should turn for reliable, easy-to-grasp information on Parkinson's Disease.

Parkinson's Treatment English Edition: 10 Secrets to a Happier Life is available in over 20 language translations, so that all worldwide cultures can have access to the secrets that can help those living with Parkinson's disease. Additionally the book addresses all of the new and emerging Parkinson's disease therapies (stem cells, gene therapy, optogenetics, etc.).The most humbling experience of my life has been the time I have spent with families, and with patients suffering from Parkinson's and chronic neurological diseases. I use the word humbling, because time after time, in person, and also on the web forum, we have uncovered simple and addressable issues and secrets that have changed people's lives. For some sufferers it has meant walking again, for others it has restored their voices, and for many it has resulted in the lifting of a depression, anxiety and desperation cloud that has obscured their dreams, and robbed them of potential unrealized happiness. I never assume a sufferer or family member is aware of the “secrets” that may lead to hope and to a happier life. We must share these secrets, and this is the purpose of this book.Each chapter of this book reveals an important secret, and with each secret I will explain the insight, the rationale, the empiricism, and the science behind it. In each chapter I will also try to reveal a little more about myself, and a lot more about the patients and talented clinicians who gifted the Parkinson's secrets. These patients planted the seed of faith. They learned to grow hope, and they discovered the core values necessary to achieve happiness despite the chronic illness of Parkinson's disease.

"In this book, Dr. Ahlskog provides a logical, comprehensive, and efficacious treatment approach to all aspects of this disorder. He tells the reader which drugs work best for specific problems and how to dose. Where controversies threaten to paralyze therapeutic options, he addresses these with available data, ultimately settling on those choices that can best be defended by experience and published evidence. A discussion of the role for deep brain stimulation surgery and criteria for patient selection are provided. Although focused on therapeutics, this book covers the broad needs of clinicians including diagnosing and differentiating PD from similar conditions. Testing and counseling issues are discussed in detail."--BOOK JACKET.
