As you have all posted in our PD group, I wanted to share this video with you that I found on the Michael J. Fox website about the benefits of exercise for PD patients. Here is the website: http://bit.ly/2rK8DC6. Let’s share about how exercise is working for you. Teresa

I do peddling for PD three times a week at local fitness center. Always feel good after each sesion. Plan to add yoga one day week.

For the past year, I’ve been involved in Dance for PD. Has anyone else heard of this or tried it? In the class I attend it is all done while seated, here is a website where you get some more information, http://danceforparkinsons.org/ Here are some Youtube videos where you can see the PD dancers in action http://bit.ly/2rwTfeR and http://bit.ly/2qSq5UT and http://bit.ly/2qRSbkX. Enjoy the videos and if you have a PD dance class in your area, I would heartily recommend that you give it try! Teresa

Teresa,

Thanks. I’ll check into it.

To: @chrisj2491 @denie57 @johnjames @trouble4343 @ggopher @aperob @caryp43 @burgle @macbeth @knightkris @pjsammy. Since @mariemarie mentioned Pedaling for Parkinson’s I found some Youtube videos that show how this activity works on PD symptoms. These classes are usually available at the Y. Take a look at: http://bit.ly/2q9b584 and http://bit.ly/1Pq8yWM. I hope that these videos inspire us all! Teresa

Hello All:

While PD symptoms vary from person to person, one symptom that many of us have in common is problems with handwriting and hand problems in general. Things like getting small pills out of containers, putting on jewelry, opening those plastic bags in the produce section can be very frustrating if you have PD.

Through a local PD support group, I was introduced to this great Youtube video that provides hand exercises for PD. I practiced them sitting down this morning and it really felt good! I'd like to encourage you all to take a look at the video and give them a try. Here is the link,

@hopeful1964 l use to have problems with writing when l first hand my brain injury in 1997. Then l started having tremors later on when they had me on antidepressants. When they took me off l still had tremors. Then when they started taking me off some of the medicines l haven't had that problem so far. When l went to the mayo clinic they said they think it could have been the meds an allergic reaction and it could have been autoimmune encephalitis which the autoimmune encephalitis alliance said you may have symptoms of mental behavior and doctors are not aware of those symptoms and they are misdiagnosed as bipolar and schizophrenia and many of patients with this disease are placed in the mental units. When l went to the mayo clinic l told them one of my neurologist said l had PD they ruled that out. So l really don't think l have that and they were surprised l even said that l had PD. So l really think its HE, autoimmune encephalitis or encephalopathy

or allergic reaction to the medicine. I was only allergic to codeine and aspirin since 2014 and now l am allergic to so many medicines that the doctors are afraid to prescribe me meds. So l really am blessed that finally after years of wondering why no one was listening to me that their really was something wrong and that my doctors had misdiagnosed me which was told to me by lots of doctors at the Mayo Clinic and my doctors won't admit. I am truly blessed to find out the truth. And my hepatologist told me l didn't have to see any other doctors except him, my pulmonologist, general practice doctor and ophthalmologist that was the best news l ever had.

@techi Hello Lisa:

I'm so glad that you found the source of your problem. That is great.

I appreciate your post. It is good to hear from you.

Hi All:

While I've discussed the effectiveness of Dancing for Parkinson's before, I wanted to share with you this article from an Italian doctor who has written about the effectiveness of the Irish Reel for Parkinson's patients, https://www.irishcentral.com/news/italian-neurologist-finds-improbable-cure-for-parkinsons-disease-in-irish-dancing-197291231-237768881

Here is a quote from that article:

"Dr. Volpe made an important observation. For many with Parkinson's, posterior-anterior advancement of the lower limb during the swing phase of the gait's cycle is compromised. Yet, the Reel Step enabled a dancer with Parkinson's to override the neurological impediments that affect the gait.

As he thought about the Reel Step, he noted that Irish Set Dance is patterned, but steps are not overly repetitious. Execution of the pattern requires the dancer to change direction frequently. Directional change plus the need to maintain reasonably consistent step lengths require the dancer to be in a state of constantly transferring weight from one leg to the other. The overall effect is a remarkable improvement."
