At this moment an estimated 10,000 individuals in Utah are afflicted with PD, with over 1.5 million nationally. PD is a progressive neurological disease with symptoms that include tremors and loss of muscle control. Currently there is no known cure; however, with proper medication, nutrition, and exercise, people living with PD are able to significantly reduce the debilitating effects of the symptoms and improve their quality of life.
