More Tampa Bay Fitness and Education Options


USF Health and the Jewish Community Center are expanding the reach—but lowering the cost—of their PD exercise programs. Classes include Tai Chi, Stretch/Strengthen, Nia, Water and Movement, and Caregivers Support group. (Nia combines dance, martial arts and mindfulness.)
Classes are offered at both JCC campuses: Citrus Park, 13009 Community Campus Drive, and South Tampa, 522 N. Howard Ave. The cost to participate in all the classes is $20 a month or $100 for six months. Further, registration provides a PD Wellness membership at the JCC. The USF/JCC program is aided by the Edmond J. Safra National Parkinson’s Wellness Initiative. To learn more or register for classes, call Crista Ellis at 813-396–0765 or email PDwellnessinitiative@gmail.com.
 
An intriguing educational event is at the JCC Howard Avenue location June 11 from 2:00 to 4:30. The subject is “Taboo Topics of Parkinson’s Disease: Physical Intimacy & The Green Alternative.” Loosely translated that’s, marijuana and sex. Speakers are Dr. Sherry Leib and Dr. Selim Benbadis. Call Crista Ellis at 813-396-0765 to RSVP.
 
My PDF SELF buddies sing the praises of a recent speaker at their program: USF’s Dr. Angela Hill. She’s speaking June 28 at the Byrd Institute, 4001E. Fowler Ave. Atrium room. The topic is “Facts and Fiction About Traditional and Contemporary Treatment Approaches for Parkinson’s Disease.” Prescription, Herbal & Vitamin Approaches. Contact again is Crista Ellis, 813-396-0765.

  1. My husband is 80 years and has been suffering from PD for the past 15 years. Lately he started hallucinating and I didn’t know how to handle the situation. He cannot sleep and tried to find and catch the imaginary people who he thinks are real. he was taken Entacapone with Levodopa, Carbidopa, and Pramipexole and started physical therapy to strengthen muscles. nothing was really working to help his condition.I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started him on parkinson’s herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, his symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the Parkinsons disease natural herbal formula.i read reviews from other previous patients who used the herbal formula, my husband is now active, he can now go about daily exercise!! his symptoms so much reduced that now I hardly notice them.
