9780061173226: Living Well with Parkinson's Disease: What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You....That You Need to Know (Living Well (Collins))

A complete guide to Parkinson's from two people with the disease who cofounded a national support and advocacy organization.

In Living Well with Parkinson's Disease, Gretchen Garie and Michael J. Church, a couple who both have Parkinson's and live daily with the effects of the disease, thoroughly discuss diagnosis, treatment options, and the emotional consequences of this difficult illness. With a conversational, pragmatic, and personal tone, they offer advice on such topics as:

  • how Parkinson's disease affects relationships
  • the role of diet, supplements, and rest and relaxation
  • strategies for navigating professional life and the maze of the health-care system
  • handling everyday challenges such as buttoning a shirt or rolling over in bed
  • and more!

Compassionate and inspiring, Living Well with Parkinson's Disease offers knowledge and wisdom from those who understand the challenges of dealing with Parkinson's every day.

About the Author:

Gretchen Garie is president of Movers and Shakers, a Parkinson's advocacy group, and Congressional Coordinator for the Parkinson's Action Network for the state of Florida. Her husband, Michael J. Church, is executive director of Movers and Shakers and is the Florida State Coordinator for the Parkinson's Action Network. They live with their children in Naples, Florida.



First and foremost, Winifred Conkling is the mother of two children, Hannah (who was conceived the first month of "trying") and Ella (who took considerably longer and ultimately inspired this book). Once the kids are asleep, Conkling transforms into a freelance writer with extensive experience writing about health and alternative medicine. She is the author of Stopping Time: Natural Remedies for Aging (Dell, 1997), Natural Remedies for Arthritis (Dell, 1997), Natural Remedies for Children (St. Martin's, 1996), Trade Secrets (Fireside, 1995), and Securing Your Child's Future (Ballantine, 1995), among other books. Her work has been published in a number of national magazines including American Health, Consumer Reports, Mademoiselle, McCall's, and Reader's Digest.
