An Integrated and Clinical Approach to Parkinson’s Disease

A 2- Part Masterclass

With Lucille Leader

Saturday 20th February | 10-12:30PM UK (GMT) Time

In this Masterclass, expert in Parkinson’s disease, practitioner Lucille Leader will present research-based nutritional support for the metabolic/biochemical pathways which are divergent in neurodegenerative illness – Parkinson’s Disease. Vital understanding of the dopaminergic pharmaceutical process and the essential nutritional protocols for optimal drug response will also be presented. Diet, Intestinal Function, Stress and protocols for general functional health, are presented. We will also explore protocols to avoid the dreaded “OFF PERIOD” during L-dopa therapy.

This integrated work earned Dr Geoffrey Leader and Lucille Leader a
“Quality of Life in Parkinson’s Award” in the USA.

This training is a 2 part module divided into an hour session each.



  1. What is Parkinson’s Disease and Diagnosis?
  2. Parkinsonism
  3. Notable Biochemical Pathways with nutritional co-enzymes and their difficulties in Parkinson’s disease
  4. Detoxification difficulties
  5. Understanding essential pharmaceutical support in Parkinson’s disease
  6. How to reduce side effects of drugs and optimise the absorption of Levodopa (L-dopa)



  1. Assessing how often to take L-dopa to avoid the “Off Period”
  2. Stressor Aspects – Autogenic Training
  3. Intestinal Function and Gastroenterological Collaboration
  4. Speech and Swallowing Aspects
  5. Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Dance and Music therapies

Some Learning Outcomes:

  • Avoiding Dopaminergic drug response and optimising absorption of L-dopa
  • Avoiding the “OFF Period” during ORAL L-dopa therapy
  • Optimising Intestinal function – a problem in Parkinson’s Disease
  • Understanding Diet, detoxification limitation,
  • Understanding Stressors in Parkinson’s Disease and recommendations for management

Lucille Leader, Award-winning Nutritional Therapist, is the Nutrition Director of the Parkinson’s Disease Integrated Nutrition Clinic in London, UK. She is particularly interested in biochemically-based nutritional support of patients with neurological degenerative disease, at cellular level. In Parkinson’s Disease there are diverse nutritional aspects which influence metabolism. Her work as a Nutrition Practitioner recommends the way forward for each individual, based on their personal biochemical individuality, established by medical and biochemical laboratory tests and clinical history. Her past experience has included serving as the Nutrition Director of the London Pain Relief and Nutritional Support Clinic which used to function at The Highgate Hospital in London, UK. This clinic, with the inspiring vision of its Medical Director Dr Geoffrey Leader, was an early pioneer of the integrated, team approach to the management of chronic illness, with a special interest in the management of Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
