NOTE: DAY LIGHT SAVINGS TIME BEGINS
“We felt for the first time that we had some control over the progression of myParkinson’s by implementing your suggestions for diet, exercise, alternative therapies and supplements based on the extensive knowledge of my personal health from all the lab work included in the program."
TESTIMONIALS FROM DR. MISCHLEY'S PD SUMMER CAMP
“I learned what to eat and more importantly what not to eat based on Dr. Laurie Mischley's latest research. I also learned about supplements I could take that would help me. I learned what toxins to avoid and to remove from myenvironment. I have probably had PD for 14 years, but it was not until I took toxins out of my environment, started eating properly, added the supplements and continued with my exercise regimen that I have had great results. I move better now, and feel better now ... didn't think it was possible.”
“The idea that nutrition could play a role in the treatment of Parkinson's was somewhat foreign to me, but I thought it would be a good experience to learn about something new. It turned out to be a great experience that has helped me refocus my energy on new, different ways to manage my symptoms and I believe it has put me on a better path to getting the most out of my body. Dr. Laurie Mischley is a beacon of hope for so many people with Parkinson's. To feel empowered instead of scared (which is the typical feeling I get when attending PD trainings) was amazing. Life changing.”
