Descripción del producto
En mis viajes por el mundo como Director Médico de la Fundación Nacional de Parkinson, he conocido tanto a personas afectadas por este padecimiento, cuanto a sus parientes y amigos. Una de las preguntas más frecuentes es “¿qué debo hacer para mejorar mi vida y la de mis allegados?” Para satisfacer la sed de conocimiento de todas estas personas, decidí escribir este libro, a fin de compartir todos estos secretos para vivir feliz a pesar de la enfermedad de Parkinson. Para ello, coadyuvaron nuestros colegas y médicos en formación, quienes generosamente tradujeron estas páginas a varios idiomas.
