My Presentations as Invited Featured Speaker at The Second World Parkinson's Disease Congress

Glasgow - 28th September - 1st October 2010

The organisers have informed me that there is great interest in my presentations and they have needed to change the size of the hall to a much larger one than originally reserved for my special presentation on the 1st October. I am presenting the following papers:
  • 28th September - The Role of The Nutritional Therapist in The Multi-Disciplinary Management of Parkinson's
  • 30th September - Taking Control: How Nutritional Planning Can Optimise Function
  • 1st October - Nutrition and Dopamine Metabolism in Parkinson's Disease
My books which will be available at the WisePress Book Shop at the congress are:
Also to be presented at the WisePress Book Shop at the congress, is a marvellous CD by psychotherapist, David Uri. It demonstrates a very helpful stress-control technique for those with Parkinson's and their partners. The title is "Parkinson's Disease Relaxation". As people with Parkinson's notice that stress negatively affects their symptoms, stress management techniques are of great benefit.

Biochemistry, Dopamine Metabolism and Nutrition in Parkinson's Disease

This groundbreaking, user-friendly monograph clearly illustrates the various metabolic and biochemical pathways implicated in Parkinson's Disease, with their primary sources in protein, carbohydrates and fats. It describes the enzymes necessary for metabolic and biochemical progress with their dependence on co-enzymes, which are specific nutrients.

Biochemical tests are described to analyse cellular status so that management of Parkinson's Disease will incorporate, as adjuvant care, not only pharmaceutical management but also nutritional support of metabolic and biochemical processes. This would be based on the biochemical individuality of patients.

Dopamine, the neurotransmitter which is deficient in Parkinson's disease, is metabolised from dietary protein. The metabolic steps from protein ingestion in the diet to the production of dopamine in the brain - and further on to adrenaline, are best described by biochemistry. Contemporary nutritional management is the APPLICATION of biochemical principles.  Published by Denor Press (UK).
