The very first "Helping People with Parkinson's" course in Ireland is starting 20th February in the Edmund Rice Heritage centre at 11am; this first course is completely FREE.

The course is created by Irene Treacy who is a PD Warrior, Smovey Coach and is Parkinson's Regeneration Trained, Irene has realised after working with people with Parkinson's for the past two years, it's a combination of positive mental attitude, exercise and nutrition along with their medication can drastically improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson's.

"I've personally seen and worked with hundreds of people with Parkinson's that their quality of life has actually improved. This is not down to just one thing but I believe a combination of elements from exercise, diet, hope and what's so important is education. Many people don't realise the significance and importance of exercise and diet and when they are explained and understand the effect it has on their body and brain, they are more likely to stick to a plan and that's exactly what I've created.

"A plan of action which is a holistic approach as it incorporates the body, mind and beliefs. We have so much power inside us to create an improvement and this course is a step by step guide to improve your personal belief, increase your physical and mental strength and improve your quality of life."
