What some experts say about Parkinson's diet and nutrition


When one thinks of nutrition, one thinks of diet. There is no one size fits all diet for all patients with Parkinson’s. Rather, one must find what works best for themselves. Typically, a well-balanced diet is the first step in a healthy nutritional approach. One also needs to take into account the side effects of one’s medications and other underlying health factors. It is always recommended to consult with one’s doctor, a registered dietician, and speech-language pathologist for the most up to date and professional resources. Below are internet resources to aid in further looking into the topic.
