Summer Ice Cream Socials A Local Hero PD Enrichment Groups

Dear Friends of Hope Parkinson Program

“Until there is a cure, there is a community.” At Hope Healthcare, our Parkinson Program participants understand and live by this phrase. Together, nearly 3,000 vibrant, empathetic and supportive participants encourage all who are struggling with PD to join them in their journey. During the past season, workshops and inspiring events brought us together to share our successes and learn from our experiences. We keep each other motivated and moving forward each month with programs designed especially for you. Every year, I’m inspired by what we can do when we work together – like raising nearly $10,000 for the Hope Parkinson Program during the 2019 Walk 4 Hope, thanks to our participants, care partners, volunteers and sponsors. This summer, let’s relax, recharge and reflect on how fortunate we are to share this journey with each other.

Ask a PD Expert: Turmeric and Parkinson’s Disease Kathrynne Holden, MS, RD

If you haven’t yet heard about turmeric, there’s a good chance you soon will. Turmeric is a bright yellow spice found in curry powders. It’s also used in pickles, and it’s what makes mustard yellow. Research studies have determined that tumeric contains at least 20 powerful compounds that attack cancer cells, help control blood glucose, and appear to help prevent the death of nerve cells in Parkinson’s disease. These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin. Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. Unfortunately, it is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. Consuming black pepper with turmeric enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2000%. The presence of oil, such as coconut or olive oil, also aids curcumin absorption. 2 tablespoons lemon juice 2 teaspoons mustard 1 teaspoon turmeric 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper 1 15-ounce can salmon, drained 2/3 - 3/4 cups dry whole-wheat bread crumbs (enough to bind the cakes) 1/4 cup minced onion 2 eggs 1. Drain salmon. 2. In a small bowl, stir together lemon juice, mustard, turmeric and pepper. 3. In a larger bowl, combine salmon with bread crumbs, onion and lemon juice mixture. Stir in eggs. Add extra bread crumbs if mixture is too wet. Golden Salmon Cakes Makes 4 cakes

Turmeric can be mixed into soups and other dishes. Here are some easy ways to add turmeric to your daily menu: • Break one or two eggs into a bowl. Add ½ teaspoon of turmeric and a few grinds of black pepper. Pour into a hot, oiled skillet and scramble. • When making soup or a casserole that begins by cooking onions, add one teaspoon turmeric and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper along with the onion, then continue preparing the dish. • If you like smoothies, add turmeric and black pepper and a half-teaspoon of olive or coconut oil before blending. Try this recipe that offers both turmeric and the brain- protective omega-3 fatty acids of salmon.

4. Form mixture into 4 patties and broil until browned and heated through. (Or pan-fry in 1 tablespoon olive oil until browned.) 5. Serve as is, or on a bun with lettuce and tomato slices.

Walk 4 Hope: Raising Awareness and Support To kick off National Parkinson’s Awareness Month in April, more than 200 walkers and

supporters gathered at Lakes Regional Park for Walk 4 Hope and raised nearly $10,000 to benefit the Hope Parkinson Program. Participants included persons with Parkinson’s disease, care partners, family members, friends, neighbors, local physician groups and community supporters. The weather was as beautiful as the scenery, and smiles were abundant as everyone shared in the common goal of raising Parkinson’s Awareness. Hope Healthcare volunteers lined the route and cheered all the walkers who casually strolled, walked a scenic mile, or took on the three-mile path through Lakes Park. Their enthusiastic participation made the walk even more

enjoyable and was greatly appreciated. A special thanks to our Trailblazers who reached out to friends and neighbors to sponsor their walk and increased the overall revenue raised. This successful day was made possible through our generous event partners and sponsors, to whom we are most grateful.

A Natural Recipe for Constipation

For Parkinson’s disease patients, constipation is a common complaint. Along with exercising and drinking plenty of water, trying this University of Florida- endorsed recipe can help. Mix the ingredients together and refrigerate. Replace the mixture each week. Take 1 to 2 tablespoons daily for one week for desired results. If needed, you may increase dose by 1 tablespoon each week. Stool frequency and gas may increase the first few weeks, but will usually adjust after one month. *Miller’s Bran is unprocessed wheat bran that may be purchased at most large grocery stores and is found with either the hot cereals or flours and baking goods. The most commonly found brand name is Hodgson Mill is sold in a brown 14 oz. box. Miller’s Bran may also be purchased in bulk at health food stores. You can also sprinkle bran on food to supplement your fiber intake. http://movementdisorders.ufhealth.org/2011/09/12/parkinsons-treatment- tips-for-constipation/

Unlike the heroes of modern-day movies, Paul Flagg doesn’t wear a cape or iron suit, or carry a large hammer. Yet, Paul is a hero. He is a local hero in the fight of his life against his nemesis, Parkinson’s disease. Paul uses knowledge, determination and fortitude as his weapons. He also sacrifices a generous amount of time and sometimes undergoes invasive examinations in this fight. He believes he is fighting for himself and all those with Parkinson’s by participating in local and national PD research trials. Since his diagnosis nine years ago, Paul has participated in over 70 such trials – including those that require multiple radiologic tests and lumbar punctures. Paul’s first symptom was a tremor in his right leg, and he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2010 at Boston University. Paul had a DAT scan, which showed substantially diminished dopamine activity. Physical testing proved the diagnosis. Paul received confirmation and initial treatment at Beth Israel Medical Center in Boston. At that time, he decided to enroll in research programs and became the second volunteer for the Michael J. Fox-sponsored Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative at Boston University. The program was supposed to last for three years, Paul Flagg: A Local Hero

He still

but now is expected to last until at least 2022. The research consists of cognitive testing, motion testing, blood tests and collection of synovial fluid via lumbar puncture. For the past eight years, Paul has committed to this testing every six months. He has also participated in voice training, LSVT, LSVT Big, Loud Crowd, and saliva and colon studies at New Haven Connecticut Institute for Neurodegenerative Disorders – studies mostly discovered through the Michael J. Fox Trial Finder website. Paul hopes that his participation and donation of time will help someone

Recently, Paul increased his dedication to helping people with PD in our area by becoming a Hope Healthcare Volunteer. Paul will be facilitating a new support group for men with Parkinson’s called “PD Connection” to be held at the Cape Hope Conference Room on the fourth Thursday of the month at noon. Paul’s brave approach to Parkinson’s will encourage others to be strong in their fight.

Preparing for Summer

Many people choose to travel during summer – and with Parkinson’s, there are some extra things to consider before hitting the road. • Take your Aware in Care hospitalization kit and card everywhere. Order your free Aware in Care kit by calling the Parkinson Foundation at 1-800-473-4636. • Travel with all medications in original bottles. Keep the original label with the name of the drug and your doctor’s name. • Bring a copy of your prescriptions (generic and non-generic names) and medication schedule. Include your physician’s name and contact information. • Pack enough medication to last your entire trip in your carry-on bag. Pack extras in case your trip is delayed. • Continue to take your medications as prescribed, even if changing time zones. Keep the same intervals between doses. • If staying in a hotel, ask these questions as needed before you arrive: o What does “accessible room” actually entail? o Can you have room that has a walk-in shower with grab bars? o What is the proximity to elevators? • Rest the day before your trip AND the first full day you arrive. If you plan to soak up the sun this summer, remember to take care of your skin. Melanoma is an invasive form of skin cancer that has been found to develop more often in people with Parkinson’s. Here’s how you can prevent melanoma:

• Use sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or more. Apply sunscreen daily before leaving your house, year-round. If you drive often, keep sunscreen in your car so you can apply it to your hands. When in direct sun, wear protective clothes and a hat. • Schedule an annual screening with a dermatologist • Look for “sun sensitivity” listed on medication warning labels. These warnings can increase your chances of sunburns. • Use sunscreen when around reflective surfaces. Water and sand reflect sun rays and increase sun exposure, increasing your odds of getting a sunburn. As the temperature rises, everyone is at risk of overheating. Be smart about your outside time. To beat the heat, remember to: • Stay hydrated: Drink water even if you are not thirsty. • Try to drink more than the recommended 9 to 13 cups of water per day when you are in the heat. • Exercise smart: If exercising outside, keep track of how much time you spend in the heat. Consider exercising outdoors in the early morning or late afternoon when it’s cooler outside. • Know the signs of heat stroke: flushed face, high body temperature, headache, nausea, rapid pulse, dizziness and confusion. Once heatstroke is suspected, begin cooling immediately. Go to your nearest emergency room or urgent care for treatment.
