Richard Melvin discusses his accidental discovery of having Parkinson's disease and how his father's experience with standard Parkinson's medications influenced his decision to treat the disease with (alternative) nutritional supplementation. In addition to giving detailed information about specific therapeutic vitamins, minerals, herbs and amino acids, he will talk about possible causes of the disease that are currently being investigated by scientists.
In response to experiencing Parkinson's disease symptoms,he rendered 2 oil paintings entitled: 'Monochrome Epiphany" and 'Neural Tree". Olfactory dysfunction is an early symptom
of Parkinson's and both paintings have a limited or monochromatic color scheme which symbolizes his temporary loss of the sense of smell.
