Modifiable Contributors to Progression

We've been collecting data for over a decade on people with various forms of Parkinsonism. Some statistically significant and clinically relevant trends are emerging...

Join us as we explore the data and discuss thousands of opportunities for Parkinson prevention and health promotion for those who already have a diagnosis.



Early Detection
ParK-9

Dogs can smell drugs and bombs, predict seizures and diabetic complications, so it's no surprise that they can also detect the scent of Parkinsonism.

Symptom Monitoring
PRO-PD App

The Parkinson Symptom Tracking App is the only way to accurately monitor your rate of progression in years following diagnosis, when motor signs are minimal.

Free for iOS and Android



Disease Modification
MVP Study

There is a tremendous amount of diversity among people with Parkinsonism (PwP); some people seem to progress quickly and others barely at all. Our goal describe the behavior associated with the fewest symptoms over time.

About Dr. Mischley

Laurie Mischley, ND PhD MPH studied naturopathic medicine (ND) at Bastyr University and epidemiology (MPH) and nutritional sciences (PhD) at the University of Washington and she maintains appointments at both Universities. Her work is focused on identifying the nutritional requirements unique to individuals with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and has published on coenzyme Q10, lithium, NAD+, and glutathione deficiency.

She is Principal Investigator of the Modifiable Variables in Parkinsonism (MVP) Study (MVP-study.com), which is attempting to describe why some people with PD progress slower than others. She developed the Patient Reported Outcomes in PD (PRO-PD) rating scale (www.PD-symptoms.com), created the Parkinson Symptom Tracking App, and has trained dogs to detect the scent of Parkinsonism (ParK-9.com).

She is working on ways to study, package and deliver evidence-based lifestyle modification as a therapeutic strategy.
