The greatest challenge facing the Parkinson’s disease patient is how to cope with the non-motor symptoms and maintain a quality of life. With the original intent of the Bronowski Clinic being to help patients with the insomnia and depression, we have seen many people getting back to doing things they weren’t able to do before. With this their motor function often improved as well and it seems likely that strategic light exposure in combination with key doses of dopamine replacement might well provide the catalyst that slows the progressive features of the disease. With this many children, spouses and friends have said “…thank you for giving me my grandmother, grandfather, husband or wife back…”and consequently, this has become our theme.
Thank you so much for giving your valuable time into research for Parkinson’s Disease. As one of your patients for three years now, on the light therapy, I have been able to live a normal life, keeping my own home as well as travelling overseas.
My recent trip to North Africa and camel riding in the Sahara desert was more than I could have ever imagined for, 3 years ago.
Nothing can ever repay you for the work and research you have done to help us patients with Parkinson’s.
Keep up the wonderful work Dr. Greg.
