The BIG and LOUD Exercise Programs for People with Parkinson's
The BIG exercise program and the LOUD speech therapy program were both developed by the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment Program. I took the BIG program several years ago on the recommendation of my neurologist, and I'm still doing those exercises because they help me with balances issues. Now I'm being tested for the LOUD program since I'm starting to see worrisome signs that my voice is losing strength. I need to be LOUD in order to deal with one of my housemates.
WBAL-TV aired a segment that explains both programs. In a post last year about the BIG program, I included a few (humorous?) videos my physical therapist took of of my attempts at the exercises.
Should You Still Take that Daily Aspirin?
I took an aspirin every morning for years. I stopped when I first heard reports about aspirin's potential negative side effects. Medical authorities continue to disagree on the issue. The debate continues as you'll see in this link.
