Fighting Parkinson’s Drug Free presents a holistic approach to embracing the disease from a new perspective. Howard Shifke recovered from Parkinson’s Disease using a holistic approach to recovery that he designed. The approach is called his Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. Howard fought Parkinson’s without medications, herbal supplements, herbal formulas or Ayurvedic remedies. His recipe for recovery is outlined in his Blog post dated January 5, 2011, and it is a combination of Qigong, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupressure, Soul, Mind, Body Medicine, Chanting, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Yin Tui Na, a vegetarian diet, and many meditation/affirmation/prayer techniques. Through trial and error, he was able to discover what worked and what did not, and he explains it in great detail in the Blog.
