Can I have a rant about exercise claims - you know the PD Warrior-type claims of ‘this will slow down your parkinsons’ - well how does she honestly know? Really and truly? Where’s the scientific evidence. And of course when emailing her to ask where trained teachers are in London she’ll tell you there aren’t any, because she wants to franchise it and make money from it, and will tell you to go to Marlow, 35 miles outside London, like thats really convenient. I found my own trained PD Warrior teacher who was fabulous, until she moved abroad. We’re desperate to feel better so we will try many methods and I feel exploited.
The conference in Leicester in April - will this just be more claims, feel goodery, and motivational mumbo jumbo by self promoting ‘well-being’ gurus or will it have some real scientific truth and evidence based research and content. Having the disease is enough motivation, I don’t need life coaching.
What REALLY works for you exercise wise? Do you do PD Warrior, for how long have you done it and how many times per week, and do you feel it has and is slowing down your progression? What other exercise works for you?
