Book Description: Parkinson’s Disease, a disorder of the central nervous system, affects 1 million people in America and 10 million worldwide. In Goodbye Parkinson’s, Hello Life! Alex Kerten presents his breakthrough holistic technique that combines dance therapy, behavior modification, and martial arts, to prove that there is life beyond the diagnosis of PD. Goodbye Parkinson’s, Hello life! received “Recommended Reading” status by the Michael J. Fox Foundation and listings on the National Parkinson’s Association social media sites.
Those who follow Kerten’s techniques and are committed to becoming “Parkinson’s warriors” can succeed in eliminating many, if not most, of their symptoms and return to a productive and fulfilling life.

This book is revolutionary in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease. The authors offer cutting edge techniques that will help eliminate most of the symptoms of the disease and lead to living a productive life. When most are given the diagnosis of Parkinson’s they feel helpless. This book begins by explaining what Parkinson’s Disease is and how it affects the body. This is important in helping you understand the disease before moving on to treatments. The next section of the book goes into exercise therapy, giving detailed illustrations. After this the authors discuss other aspects of handling the disease including medication and caregivers. It ends with an extensive glossary and bibliography. Following the advice outlined in the book will empower those suffering from Parkinson’s to take control of their health and life by managing their symptoms through a variety of means, including therapeutic exercise. While they won’t rid you of the disease, this exercise regime will help you to make it more manageable. I found this to be a very informative and encouraging book, giving hope to those afflicted with this disease and their loved ones as well. It give you hope for a fulfilling life.
