On Sunday, December 12th, I will be six-months symptom free. For these six months, I have done my best to assist Parkinson’s sufferers, caregivers and treatment specialists. Also, I have worked painstakingly in trying to get somebody, or some organization, to sponsor a study of my complete methodologies for Parkinson’s recovery.
My net result: nobody, and no organization, is interested. I have heard a lot of reasons…”God took the basil ganglia out of your head and for some reason put them back in, so you never will be able to repeat what happened to you;” “You were so methodical and systematic you will never find another person with that kind of commitment so you will never be able to repeat your recovery with another person;” “You are a phony and are irresponsible for telling people they can recover because it is well known that Parkinson’s is not curable;” It is a long, sad list of reasons, filled with back-handed compliments and flat-out scorn.
So, here is what I have to say to all of you –who wants to participate in a study that we do together?
I saw a quote recently, “The I in illness is isolation, and the crucial letters in wellness are WE.” Author unknown.
Or as Dr. Sha would say, “I have the power to heal myself (which I did). You have the power to heal yourself (on which you are working). Together we have the power to heal the world (which we will accomplish with a successful study of Parkinson’s recovery).”
If you are interested in learning more about how I envision doing the study to see how my methodologies can help with your recovery, working one-on-one with me in person, via email, on the phone and/or via Skype, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will contact you back with the details.
All my best,
