WEBINAR: Holistic Approaches for Parkinson’s
January 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Maria Shapoval
The presentation is an evidence-based discussion of the current naturopathic treatments that are available for the management and/or prevention of Parkinson’s. The presentation will include a range of topics such as diet, lifestyle, nutritional and herbal supplements, mind-body connection, impact of gut on neurological health and of course, the importance of exercise. The focus will be on what can patients or caregivers start doing today in order to reduce the risk of developing Parkinson’s and/or to reduce the progression and manage symptoms. There are a lot of naturopathic options available that can be beneficial to patients at all stages of the disease. The presentation will also include a very brief overview of some of the in-clinic treatments that are available.
