Join Vicky Rees-Davies, YOPD Ambassador at Parkinson’s Care and Support UK and Lucille Leader, Award-winning Nutritional Therapist, Author and Nutrition Director of the Parkinson’s Disease Integrated Nutrition Clinic in London, UK, for this one hour webinar on nutrition and how to function as best you are personally able to whilst living with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease.
Lucille Leader is particularly interested in biochemically-based nutritional support of patients with neurological degenerative disease, at cellular level.
In Parkinson’s Disease there are diverse nutritional aspects which influence metabolism. Her work as a Nutrition Practitioner, essentially always working in collaboration with patients’ General Practitioners (GPs), recommends the way forward for each individual, based on their personal biochemical individuality, established by medical and specialised biochemical laboratory tests and clinical history.
Dopamine, deficient in Parkinson’s Disease, is produced from dietary protein. The intrinsic problems associated with this metabolic pathway are the focus of medicine and adjuvant nutritional therapy.
