Review quote

The Beneficial effects on the symptoms of patients with PD following the Leaders' L-dopa timing and dosing protocol and nutritional recommendations, were nothing short of stunning! I urge anyone with PD, their partners and their carers, as well as clinical team members, to read this book and follow the recommendations therein.

Harriet Jedwab BSc DipRAW MBANT CNHC Reg - Nutrition Practitioner

The National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kindgom (UK) has championed the idea of the patient being the 'expert' - this monograph and other publications that the Leaders have previously published, provide a catalogue of facts and information which any expert would require. The Authors present assessments for monitoring of individual patient responses to L-dopa, with or without other dopaminergic drugs, within appropriate conditions described in this book. They learn how to present this information effectively to the clinical team. This allows personalised dosing and timing of L-dopa administration, which can be helpful in ameliorating the 'On-Off' discomfort experienced.

Professor Leslie Findley KLJ TD MD FRCP FACP MRCS - Consultant Neurologist

A unique and very valuable book. You cannot find this essential advice anywhere else. The book cover image is perfect, with calming colours.
