To go along with my Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month blog, I have decided to post a special recipe for those with Parkinson’s Disease. While all of my recipes promote optimal brain health, and would be terrific for someone with Parkinson’s, this Sesame Crusted Salmon recipe in particular contains omega-3 rich fish (salmon) and seeds (sesame seeds) both of which are notably beneficial to those with Parkinson’s.

While Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative brain disorder, it is a form of acquired brain injury. One proactive way to combat the symptoms of brain injury is to alter one’s diet, to include lots of brain-healthy food, and eliminate foods that are bad for the brain, such as sugar and wheat. By following my brain-healthy diet, it is possible to see an improvement in your brain-injury symptoms.

So whether you are looking to have a brain-friendly dinner, or are battling Parkinson’s, try this recipe tonight!
