In this episode
Listen to chapter 16, "Living Well with Parkinson's Today," and the Appendix, "Medical Bullshit Detector" of the newest edition of our Every Victory Counts® manual. Living well with Parkinson’s is a choice and a constant effort, but as many people in our community would say, the effort is worth the result. And an important part of living well with Parkinson's is being able to decipher fact from fiction in the Parkinson's world. While there are many emerging therapies and treatments for Parkinson’s, there are also, unfortunately, many unsupported claims and “false” treatments out there as well. In these last two sections of the Every Victory Counts Manual, you’ll get advice on steps you can take right away to begin living well with Parkinson’s, and you'll learn how to vet the Parkinson’s research and stories you hear.
