Yoga For Parkinson’s Disease

How do you cope with Parkinson’s Disease effectively on the Eastern Shore of Maryland? Yoga has been used for centuries and started in Ancient India. Although the practice has changed since then, many studies have determined the effectiveness of yoga as a complementary intervention for cancer, schizophrenia, asthma, and heart disease. New research done by Peggy van Hulsteyn, a fellow Parkinson’s disease patient, shows that yoga can lessen tremors, increase stability and improve coordination. Her book, Yoga and Parkinson’s Disease: A Journey to Health and Healing gives different examples of yoga exercises that can help people with Parkinson’s. Click the link provided to learn more about the health benefits yoga has for patients with Parkinson’s Disease.
