Every now and again somebody emails me and says, “Your Recipe for Recovery looks very interesting, but how do I know it will work for me?” Sometimes I want respond by saying if they will read the entire blog, which has 125 posts not including this one, they will get a feel for my recovery and have a better sense of why the Recipe will work for them. My best guess is that if they are uncertain whether the Recipe will work for them, then they probably are not going to take the time to read all of the blog posts. Then a better answer occurred to me.
I email them back and say to read the entire Recipe for Recovery, including the introductory explanation of my philosophy of Parkinson’s and it causes. Then they should take a look at all of the ingredients, read their explanations in detail and watch the videos. After all of that it should be clear why the Recipe will work for them and everybody else.
Clear, you ask? Yes, crystal clear!
Let’s see why. The Recipe for Recovery includes slow moving, deep breathing Qigong exercises. In one of them, you just stand. The Recipe for Recovery explains how I ate healthier than how I had been eating. The Recipe for Recovery includes Governing Vessel Acupressure for relaxing tremors, Jin Shin Jyutsu for balancing the energy in our bodies, brain vibration chanting for stimulating brain activity, awareness of neural impulses exercises for paying attention to our movement and how electricity and energy flows through our bodies, and meditations, affirmations and prayers for calming our minds, controlling our negative emotions and connecting with our Higher Power. Nothing in this Recipe for Recovery can hurt you.
Quite to the contrary, the Recipe for Recovery will help you. If you are doing Qigong exercises, eating better, doing internal energy work, and doing affirmations, meditations and prayers, you are on a path of recovery. You are healing your soul, your mind and your body.
So, put your toe in the water and give the Recipe for Recovery a try. What’s the worst thing that will happen? You will feel a little better, look a little better and eat a little healthier. What’s wrong with that? And what if you do it long enough and you recover? What about that!
As Dr. Sha would say, “If you want to know if a pear is sweet, taste it.” If you want to know if the Recipe for Recovery will work for you, give it a try. Aren’t you worth it?
All my best,
