Living well with Parkinson’s means it’s likely that you’ll need to make some adjustment to meals times and dietry changes. According to Parkinson’s.org,
“While there is no prescription for a PD-specific diet, to maintain overall good health most people living with Parkinson’s disease should eat a variety of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, milk and dairy products, and protein-rich foods such as meat and beans.”
This is a recorded presentation from Parkinson Society British Columbia’s Victoria Regional Conference featuring Laurie Mischley.
