    Painting with Parkinsons

    in Health

    Painting with Parkinsons is an art group for people with Parkinson’s and their carers. Founded in 1994 by artist, curator and lecturer Nancy Tingey, the group has been meeting on Friday mornings continuously for 17 years in the Botanic Gardens, Canberra, Australia. The program has been inspired by Nancy’s research into art as a therapy for
    Parkinson’s on a Churchill Fellowship in 1996.

    Recently this has become the role model for groups in Melbourne led by Anne Atkin who featured on the Parkinsons Recovery Radio Show last year.

    Although Nancy’s husband Bob Tingey who has had Parkinsons 25 years is the only surviving member of the original group, Nancy's group currently has 17 participants,
    five facilitators and a team of volunteer helpers. This semester she is collaborating with the Canberra School of Music on a program in which musicians play live in the classroom to inspire paintings. A selection of these will be exhibited in a local arts centre with film and photographic documentation in December, 2012. The exhibition will tour Australia in 2013.
    The amazing art work you see displayed to the left was done by three of the participants in Nancy's Painting with Parkinsons class: Jock, Norma and Bob.

    Salsa for Parkinsons

    in Health


    How in the world do you learn how to Salsa dance? There is a way I have just discovered. Morry Krispijn's Dance Company in the Netherlands produced a Salsa DVD which you can use to learn how to dance the Salsa. Isn't that cool?

    Perhaps you are thinking persons who currently experience the symptoms of Parkinsons could never do the Salsa. Think again my friends. Morry tells me that persons with Parkinson's are actually quite a bit better at doing Salsa dancing than persons who do not have the symptoms. Isn't that fascinating?  

    I believe Salsa dancing is a fantastic activity for a Parkinsons Support group, especially if you are getting bored with your usual routine. If you are not having enough fun this year, dance to the Salsa. Morry tells me Salsa does wonders for persons who currently experience the neurological symptoms of Parkinsons Disease.
    Start the new year out with Salsa dancing. Try it! I think you will like it.

    Neurofeedback Reverses Parkinsons Symptoms

    in Health

    Key questions everyone wants answers to are: what causes the symptoms of Parkinson's disease and what can you do about it? Dr. Jacyln Gisburne, Ph.D., has profound answers to both of these questions.
    She has focused her research attention on identifying the circumstances that cause the symptoms of Parkinsons using a neurofeedback technology known as beta resets. After working with a wide range of persons with Parkinson's symptoms, Dr. Gisburne finds that the cause is often rooted in early childhood experiences. How do her findings match with your own early background?
    Listen to the show to discover the answer. Dr. Gisburne is one of 18 remarkable individuals who will be presenting their discoveries at the Parkinsons Recovery Summit in Santa Fe. New Mexico February,. 2013.

    Neurofeedback as an Option for Parkinsons

    in Health

    Jaclyn Gisburne, Ph.D. sees Parkinsons to be a condition of extreme overwhelm of the central nervous system caused by traumatic events and wrong belief systems. She and her
    colleagues have identified specific traumas that occur prior to the onset of symptoms of Parkinson’s. The final trauma comes with the news of the diagnosis. These traumatic
    events result in brain wave distortions that ensure the survival of the person until resolution can be achieved. If resolution does not occur, distortions continue to run
    denying access to dopamine reserves. The body becomes exhausted by the stress and continues to decline unless resolution is found.

    Dr. Gisburne Ph.D. discuss her perspective on Parkinsons on the show today and explains the neurofeedback process she uses to address trauma. She will also present an exciting workshop on neurofeedback at the 2013 Parkinsons Recovery Summit in Santa Fe, New Mexico in February.

    Ketones as Alternative Fuel for Parkinsons

    in Health

    My guest Dr. Mary Newport, MD, author of Alzheimers, What if There was a Cure?, discusses the potential support that coconut oil and MCT oil can provide for persons who currently experience symptoms of Parkinsons, especially those involving dementia.
    Plaques and tangles are known to be hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease, but another important aspect of Alzheimer’s is decreased glucose uptake into cells due to decreased production of insulin and resistance to insulin. 
    In 1967 it was first reported that the brain can use ketone bodies or ketones as an alternative fuel to glucose; this normally occurs during starvation for more than 48 hours or when adhering to a strict ketogenic diet, one that is high in fat and low in carbohydrate and protein.  
    Levels of ketones produced from consuming MCT oil have been shown to produce cognitive improvement in nearly half of people with Alzheimer’s and mild cognitive impairment after one dose and also after three months of treatment.  Coconut oil contains about 60% of medium chain fatty acids and is the richest natural source, and MCT oil is extracted from coconut oil or palm kernel oil and is 100% medium chain fatty acids.
    Glucose PET scans in persons with Parkinson’s disease and certain other neurodegenerative diseases also show decreased glucose uptake in certain parts of the brain.  In addition, many people with Parkinson’s will go on to develop Alzheimer’s type dementia, therefore this dietary intervention could be beneficial both to treat Parkinson’s and also to prevent and treat the related dementia.

    A Fresh Perspective on Parkinsons Disease

    in Health

    A diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease is actually a diagnosis that is made after all other possibilities are eliminated by standard diagnostic tests. As such, Parkinson's Disease is otherwise known as a garbage can diagnosis. During the show today, Sharry Edwards from Sound Health Options is the host and for a switch, Robert Rodgers, Ph.D. from Parkinsons Recovery is the guest.  Both offer fresh perspectives on the factors that  contribute to the symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease.
