Description

In this episode of When Life Gives You Parkinson’s, my wife Rebecca and I discover and discuss integrative medicine with Dr. Indu Subramanian. Integrative medicine is where Western and Eastern medicines meet. Activities we all are aware of like yoga, mindfulness, acupuncture and massage are among the activities that fall into integrative medicine.


I first met Indu when she interviewed me on a webinar for PMD Alliance in September 2020. Indu is Canadian, having been born and raised in Ontario, she now lives in LA. She runs the Center of Excellence for Parkinson’s at the West Los Angeles Veteran’s Hospital and is a neurologist on staff at UCLA hospital. She’s also certified in Integrated Medicine, has more than 200 hours of yoga training and loves to explore unconventional and non-pharma treatments to improve life for people with PD.


Her study on loneliness during the pandemic causing an increase of PD symptoms was widely reported on in medical journals, newspapers and popular magazines alike. She is approachable, positive, curious, and empowering. We talk about her love of the brain, the PD Avengers, the power of storytelling, and why integrative medicine does come with some warning labels. We hope you will enjoy this conversation as much as we do.
