Parkinson's Disease

Lori has presented nationally on medical nutrition therapy for Parkinson’s disease. She can work with you to move your diet toward the 7:1 model (7 parts carbohydrate, 1 part protein). This diet has been shown to give the most stable blood levels of certain amino acids (building blocks of protein), resulting in a predictable uptake of Sinimet. The result — less “off time,” improved mobility, and an improved quality of life.

The 7:1 diet is a no risk, high potential benefit healthy eating approach. You can get more information by following this link to an article we’ve included here for you. Consult with your doctor to determine if the 7:1 diet is right for you. Contact a registered dietician for help in planning a 7:1 diet you can successfully follow.

Lori has appeared on CNN speaking on medical nutrition therapy for Parkinson’s Disease and has presented to her fellow dietitians, health professionals and patients at meetings of: the American Dietetic Association (1995); the Massachusetts Dietetic Association (1996); the NY Dietetic Association (1994); Iowa Consulting Dietitians (1996); the West Texas Parkinson’s Disease Association (1996); The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, NJ (1995)
