Fighting Parkinson’s, and keep believing in yourself

About a week ago, I issued a November to Remember, No Excuses November, 30-day challenge 2012 to help get you on the path toward recovery. As encouragement, last week I also posted blog comments of how well people were doing with the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery™. The long and short of it is that you have the power to write your own story. I have provided my success story as guidance and as a framework with which to help you write your story, but please keep in mind that each of you is the hero in your own recovery story. Keep believing in yourself!

They say Parkinson’s recovery is impossible. I have been symptom free and recovered for 29 months. I have accomplished the impossible.
They say Parkinson’s recovery is impossible. Marie and Pratima are symptom free and recovered. They have accomplished the impossible.
They say after a short while with Parkinson’s, it is impossible to not be on Parkinson’s medications. Many of you have had Parkinson’s 5 years or longer and have never taken Parkinson’s medications. You have accomplished the impossible.
They say that once on Parkinson’s medications, it is impossible to get off of them. Many of you have reduced, and some have completely gotten off of, Parkinson’s medications. You have accomplished the impossible.
They say it is impossible to reverse Parkinson’s symptoms. Many of you, even those on medications, are reversing your Parkinson’s symptoms. You have accomplished the impossible.

To these experts, all I have to say is this:

Isn’t everything impossible until someone dares to imagine it happening and then makes it happen?

I am really happy to be walking with all of you on this path toward Parkinson’s recovery. I am thrilled with the amount of people who have let me know they are seriously undertaking my 30-day challenge 2012 and with the amount of people who have scheduled 30-minute calls and Skype’s so I may assist them in getting started with the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery™.

For those of you still on the fence, there are 24 days left in the 30-day challenge 2012. Why not do the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery™ as outlined in the 30-day challenge 2012 for the remaining 24 days of the challenge. What have you got to lose?

Maybe, just maybe, you will be able to walk a little better.
Maybe, just maybe, you will be able to get your fork to your mouth a little better.
Maybe, just maybe, you will be able to write a little better.
Maybe, just maybe, you will be able to stand a little better.
Maybe, just maybe, you will be able to have your bodily functions perform a little better.
Maybe, just maybe, as you start to believe in yourself that you have the power to help yourself feel better, you actually will feel a little better.
Maybe, just maybe, when you go to your next doctor’s visit, your doctor will get a confused look on his face and say that you are improving slightly in some areas.
Maybe, just maybe, after your doctor tells you this, you will feel even more inspired that “Yes, I have the power to heal myself.”
Maybe, just maybe, you plant this inspiration deep inside yourself and nurture it so it will grow into you feeling a lot better.
Maybe just maybe, as you are feeling a lot better and continuing to nurture your inspiration that you can get better, you come to the realization that you are getting better.
Maybe, just maybe, this realization that you are getting better becomes infectious and you do get better and recover.

Since you are the heroes in your own recovery stories, why not be superheroes and do the impossible? Why not get on your path to Parkinson’s recovery with the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery™ and not get off until you are fully recovered?

If you haven’t already started, why not start today?

What are you waiting for?

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

    Hi Howard,
    After reading this blog, I decided to respond about what has been happening with my recovery. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in February, 2012. I am feeling better day by day. As you know, I have reduced my medication from 3 pills per day to 1 pill per day which I will reduce again soon. I have been getting less of the rough days and less severe. I have been doing the Recipe for Recovery since May, 2012. I was fortunate to find Howard on the internet soon after I was diagnosed. I hope to be fully recovered soon.
    Thanks Howard!
    Joe

    Hello Howard and everyone,

    Way to go, Joe! That is so encouraging to hear of your progress.

    I’ve been doing Howard’s challenge since November 1, doing one full round of all the exercises, and just today working up to repeating the ones that get repeated. My jumpy and uncomfortable restless legs have been much quieter for the last two nights, and I haven’t even tried the GV acupressure yet. That’s miraculous. My severe mid-back pain is much improved, and the standing meditation is becoming easier every day. Also, it’s very subtle, but I feel less pressure in the area around my liver. I don’t feel any brain vibrations during chanting, but I have some layers of “stuckness” to work through, so I expect that to happen in time. Thank you for this opportunity, Howard, both for the challenge and the forum!

    I’m assessing how best to reduce and eliminate my medication. Against my judgment, I allowed myself to become scared and began Sinemet (25/100 3X daily) in July 2012. It hasn’t helped me and it makes my stomach very acidic. I’m thrilled to give it up, but I’ve read some pretty scary stuff about risks and side effects associated with reducing the dosage too quickly. Still, I have cut my dose a tiny bit to get started back to being drug-free, which is going to be a huge relief. I’m encouraged that Joe and others are pushing ahead.

    Take care,
    Jackie
