As we head into the last two months of the year, this is a time filled with the additional stress of the holidays, balancing family, work, friends and extended-family during the holidays. Stress exacerbates Parkinson’s. Fear and worry exacerbate Parkinson’s. Wouldn’t you rather head into the holiday season with less stress, less fear, less worry, and physically feeling a little better? Wouldn’t that make you and your family and friends actually see that you are on your path to recovery?
My 30-day challenge to you: Embrace the Recipe for Recovery for 30 days and make this your November to Remember!
There are some parameters to go over for my challenge, and here they are:
1. The body. At a minimum, perform Medical Qigong for Liver, Clearing Liver Wind Qigong, Standing and Balance Qigong, Brain Vibration Chanting (these are numbers in Mandarin Chinese in a sequences to stimulate vibration activity in the brain), and Jin Shin Jyutsu Jumper Cabling. There are videos of each of these in the Recipe for Recovery).
2. The mind. a). At a minimum, stop doing research on Parkinson’s remedies and “cures.” This will start to reduce being in Adrenaline Mode, and it will send a message to your Parkinson’s that says, “I am committed to the Recipe for Recovery. I believe in the Recipe and I believe in myself.” (Last week, I asked somebody this: “If you start looking for your next date at your own wedding reception, what is the likelihood of having a successful marriage?”). Commit to the Recipe for 30 days, and during the 30 days, stop looking for something different. Use your extra time reading a book, watching TV or a movie, talking to friends…get back into living life; I am certain if a new miracle cure turns up during the 30 days, somebody you know will tell you about it. b). Getting rid of fear. When fear arose, here is one of the things I did: When one is in adrenaline mode, the heart is “turned forward” or is “facing forward” as if to be prepared to resist the threat of an attacker. This is a subconscious fear-induced position, and the heart needs to be “repositioned” inward toward the middle. To work this through, I placed my right hand over my heart and as I slowly moved it toward the middle of my breastplate I said, “Tune out the fear in my heart radio.” I continued this hand movement and meditation until my body relaxed and told me to stop. This helps open your dopamine faucet.
3. The soul. a). At a minimum, for 5 minutes, one time per day, sit in a quiet spot, close your eyes, and count your breath from 1 to 10 and start over counting 1-10 and start over again, etc. b). When fear continues to arise, practice giving it away to your Higher Power. Here is what I did.
Not only is this the November to Remember, but it also is No Excuses November!
1. Objection to doing the Recipe, “I do not want to go on a vegetarian diet.” My response, “Don’t.” However, during the 30 days, see if you can add a little more fruits, vegetables and whole grains into your diet, and see if you can reduce a little your fried foods and sweets.
2. Objection to doing the Recipe, “I cannot do the Qigong exercises because, a. I do not understand them, b. I am physically unable, c. Both a. and b.” My response, “I will help you.” (See my “My Commitment to All of You” below in this post).
3. Objection to doing the Recipe, “It takes too much time.” My response, “Aren’t you worth the time it takes to recover from a disease from which the professionals say there is no recovery. Plus, for those of you doing daily Parkinson’s research, once you stop doing daily Parkinson’s research, you will find yourself with extra time to do the Recipe and many other things.”
4. Objection to doing the Recipe, “I am currently taking medications and I do not want to reduce them.” My response, “Don’t.” I feel that you will benefit greatly from doing the Recipe for Recovery even if you are currently taking medications. I do not believe that you can reach full recovery while on medications, but doing the Recipe and cleansing your liver will help your body process your medications better and help you function better, and maybe some time in the future you will decide that reduction makes sense to achieve your recovery.
My Commitment to All of You
Some people have expressed to me that they feel I was successful in my full recovery because of my confidence in what I was doing and my commitment to doing it, the “it” being the Recipe for Recovery. I am just as confident in all of you, and just as committed to all of you being successful, so I make this offer:
If you feel that you are unable to do any of the things outlined in my 30-day challenge above, let me know, and I will provide you with a 30-minute conference in person, by phone or by Skype at no charge. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will coordinate the conference with you.
I will help you understand the Recipe better, and I will modify the Qigong exercises so you can receive the same benefit as those people who can do them just as they appear in the Recipe.
If you are in the Tampa area, I will meet with you or have a call or a Skype. If you are outside the Tampa area, but in the United States or Canada, we may have a call or Skype. If you are outside the United States, we may have a Skype.
I am committed to all of you. I am committed to assisting you to accept my 30-day challenge, and I am confident in you being able to do the Recipe. Also, I am confident that the Recipe will work for you, and at the end of the 30 days you will see enough positive results in your recovery that you will know you are on your path to recovery and you will know the Recipe is right for you.
I am committed to you and your recovery from Parkinson’s. Why not commit yourself for 30 days to the Recipe for Recovery, and commit yourself to getting on your path toward recovery from Parkinson’s. Why not make this your November to Remember! Aren’t you worth it?
All my best,
