Wow! I feel like a new woman since starting SottoPelle®. If a person like me (diagnosed with PD in 2008) can feel this energetic again – then anyone can! I feel more youthful, alert and alive! - Patti Meese.

In an effort to support and bring awareness to Parkinson’s Disease (PD), SottoPelle® is an official Sponsor of the PD Challenge 2015 , and participating in other events to promote awareness, find the cure, and treat those with PD. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive and degenerative neurological disorder in which those afflicted suffer from tremors, cramping, involuntary movements, bradykinesia, insomnia, difficulty swallowing, and walking, amongst others. One in 100 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease with estimates of 65,000 new diagnoses each year. To date, there is no known cure.

SottoPelle® has been working with many Parkinson’s patients who have seen benefits with SottoPelle® Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT). Early-onset PD patients are experiencing improvement of their quality of life with SottoPelle® therapy. The BHRT is helping patients become more functional, offering them more vitality and energy to keep active. Brian Baehr, Founder of the Baehr Challenge for Parkinson’s Research in Phoenix, Arizona is a SottoPelle® and Parkinson’s disease patient. “SottoPelle® is making a significant difference in how I feel every day. It’s an important addition to my Parkinson’s protocol.”
