How to Eat

The Role of Food in Parkinson's

   Watch Promo

After spending the past 20 years studying food and the brain, I'm now convinced that HOW we eat is at least as important as WHAT we eat. This course outlines some foundational principles-- nutrient density, the importance of minimally processed foods, whether or not it matters if your food is organic, and we'll touch on calorie restriction as a neuroprotective strategy.

On Feb 28, 2021 at 12 pm PST, all students are invited to join us for a live Discussion related to the course material.

"Thank you for approaching everything with a common sense, "Let's take this all with gratitude," approach. We can get wound up about the situation at hand, and that's not going to do anything to change it."


"Thank you, Dr. Mischley! This is exactly what I'd been looking for and what drew me to you."
