Hello valued readers,
This may seem like a basic concept, but it is so critical that everyone understands. Exercise has been shown to have neuroprotective benefits. In layman's terms, this means exercise can reduce symptoms associated with Parkinson's Disease which is HUGE! High intensity exercise (makes you tired, sweaty, and out of breath) can reduce tremors, improve flexibility, and decrease fall risk among many other benefits.
There are many types of exercise and many recommendations out there on type, duration, etc. Here are the factors that seem to be consistent in all the research
- be consistent. Most or all days of the week.
- high intensity exercise is best. The harder the better.
- stretch daily.
- walk daily
