"I AM"- are the two most powerful words in the dictionary because the ending determines your destiny….so join me in my fight against PD to make sure that everyone who suffers from this chronic progressive degenerative disease can develop the courage to shout to the wind- I AM Fierce and Courageous ….




Defeatparkinsons is a blog site created to share information, raise awareness, foster hope, as well as spark new wonderful adventures,  while challenging current views for a better tomorrow…only then can the science of PD move forward and the lives of all of us who struggle with PD on a daily basis can be fully enriched!

Having said this all of the information within is meant to support and strengthen your relationships with your health team rather than replace the relationship between you and your doctor/MDS. I hope that the information provided within this site can serve as a stepping ground for further discussions between you and your HealthCare providers. By posing sometimes questions we don’t yet fully know or understand, I hope to lead a discussion and exploration into new venues of knowledge and treatment options which might be beneficial for all of us in the future. However, I stress that you NEVER make ANY CHANGES to your regimens without first consulting with your Physicians/ Health Care professionals. Your participation and comments are always welcome as long as they remain courteous, respectful and honest. All information within these blogs are based on my own personal experience as a Parkinson’s doctor, caregiver, research advocate, cancer survivor, as well as Parkinson’s patient.  No replications in full or in part would be allowed for publication or mass distribution without my written authorization and consent.
