Now he works with others struggling with Parkinson's to make lifestyle changes
Since he was diagnosed, instead of focusing on curing Parkinson's disease, the doctor now focuses helping other patients live a better quality of life. Capistrant stresses the importance of daily exercise and healthy eating to prevent the symptoms from worsening. Exercising with Parkinson's is very important, as it helps dopamine linger in the synapses longer, preventing the symptoms from exacerbating and allowing the patient to regain some control of their bodies. With dopamine agonists and other Parkinson's medications, patients can recover their physical skills and experience a massive improvement in their quality of life.
