Take Charge of Parkinson's Disease is for the half million North Americans with Parkinson's disease who are focused on living a healthy lifestyle that emphasizes nutrition and exercise as a way of maintaining optimal health. Anne Mikkelsen, a professional chef, includes recipes that combine the widest variety of anti-oxidant, nutrient-rich ingredients, as well as liberal doses of herbs and spices known to favorably impact the brain and potentially reduce the effects of the disease. Healthy lifestyle recommendations are interspersed with Mikkelsen's memoir of her journey with her husband as they discover how to live well with Parkinson's disease. The approach to general wellness will resonate with the generation of readers in their fifties and beyond who want to emphasize optimal wellness, healthy aging, and living with any chronic disease.
