Many times, I have mentioned that at the beginning of our healing journey, we need to know, “I have the power to heal myself.” Here we are, one-third of the way into my 30-day November to Remember, No Excuses November, challenge, and I want to take a good, hard look at why it is crucial for all of you to look at yourselves and know, “I have the power to heal myself.”
Parkinson’s Disease is viewed as a progressively degenerative incurable neurological disease. The medications for the disease assist with the symptoms, but they do not stop one from getting worse and they do not cure the disease; also, they have many undesirable side effects. The herbal remedies, supplements, and Ayurvedic formulas assist with the symptoms, but they do not stop one from getting worse and they do not cure the disease; also, they have many undesirable side effects. If either the medications or these alternative remedies cured the disease, then the disease would not be designated as incurable.
This brings me to the point that if you want to recover, the place to start is to believe that “I have the power to heal myself.” Why? Because nobody who is treating you believes that you can recover or be cured. No offense to them, but they are approaching Parkinson’s treatment from the perspective of disease management. If you want to have a shot at recovery, you have to transcend the conventional wisdom of Parkinson’s Disease management and strive to get yourself better.
Since Parkinson’s symptoms are a little different in everybody, you know better than anybody how the disease is affecting you physically, mentally and spiritually. Have confidence in yourself. Believe in yourself. You understand the disease and how it impacts you, not just how it impacts the general public. Do not miss this point: Who knows best how this disease is affecting you? You do.
I believe that all of our doctors are playing on the same team as us. They just have a different playbook because they are not inside our bodies and they do not believe we can get better. I cannot even imagine what it must be like to be a Parkinson’s specialist and have to give somebody the dreaded news — our doctors have seen where this disease goes, and every day they are looking for a way to help us. They are dedicated professionals.
However, as relates to Parkinson’s, they are in the business of disease management. They do not believe you can keep your symptoms in check; they do not believe you can reverse your symptoms; they do not believe you can recover and be cured. So, if you do not believe something different, you are on the losing team before you ever show up for the game.
I am focused on disease eradication! That is where the Recipe for Recovery and my 30-day challenge come into play. The Recipe for Recovery chips away at Parkinson’s, eliminates the causes, and the result is recovery.
My 30-day challenge is to get you to start doing a minimum of parts the Recipe for Recovery for 30 days as a way to introduce you to the Recipe, and in hopes that you will see enough positive changes that you will embrace the Recipe for Recovery in its entirety at the end of the 30 days and forge your path to recovery with confidence in yourself.
So, go to the mirror, look at yourself, and say, “I have the power to heal myself.” Say it again and again and again until you feel the spark inside you say, “Yes, this is true. I have the power to heal myself.” The power to heal ourselves is an amazing power. Please do not waste such a precious gift as the power to heal ourselves. This is your life, and Parkinson’s is just a part of it for now.
Live your life to the fullest every day and deal with Parkinson’s every day by doing the Recipe for Recovery. We are one-third into my 30-day challenge. It is never too late to start. Aren’t you worth it?
All my best,
