A balanced diet is a foundation of good health. For people with Parkinson’s disease, a balanced diet is even more important. In Parkinson’s, there are some foods that may help to ease symptoms and support brain health, while others can affect the way medications work. The informed choice of diet can help people to live better with the disease.
