WOW! Marie is two years symptom free. How inspiring is that! Two years ago, in the middle of my November to Remember, No Excuses November, 30-day challenge 2011, a comment was posted on the blog that Marie would not be accepting the 30-day challenge because she was fully recovered. Now, here we are, two years later from my November 11, 2011 post entitled, “Fighting Parkinson’s, and Marie is symptom free.” For the last two years, Marie has continued posting comments to inspire and encourage all of us.
I will begin with Marie’s comment announcing her recovery:
From my November 11, 2011 post, two years ago today, with what Marie had to say:

“I accepted an internal 30-day challenge from myself when I discovered
fightingparkinsonsdrugfree almost a year ago. And that was just the beginning. I made a promise to myself that I would do whatever was necessary and change my life in whatever ways would support recovery, if it was really possible to have my condition improve rather than degenerate. As Howard so often says, ” What did I have to lose?” I trusted Howard as my guide, and the bearer of good news that penetrated the bleakness of my fear and despair . I put my faith in my power to heal myself. The Recipe for Recovery was my lifeline. AND it is why I can happily and gratefully report to you today that the reason I am not accepting this challenge now is that I am symptom free! YES! Symptom Free!!!
Cheering you all on as you courageously overcome the disease. I am a happy example of the success of the Recipe for Recovery.
With love to you all~ Marie”
Up until that time, I was the only one who had cured myself utilizing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® , so Marie curing herself became proof of concept: Yes, the Recipe would work for others! This was big news as many people were greatly inspired to learn that the Recipe worked for Marie — it made them know it could work for them.
Over the last two years, Marie has continued to support our recovery community with comments she has posted and by attending my Santa Fe, New Mexico workshop. Click here to read about that workshop and see pictures of Marie.
Most recently, yesterday, Marie posted a comment to help all of you as you forge ahead in this year’s November to Remember, No Excuses November, 30-day Challenge 2013. Here is what she had to say:

“Greetings, Howard ,
Your metaphor of chipping away at the iceberg of Parkinson’s from the inside is so beautiful and so inspiring! I used to picture myself in the icy realm, working away…chip, chip, chip….with my little hammer and chisel. I realize that in my mind’s eye, the iceberg was truly enormous, and I was small, with little tools. I was usually wearing a lab coat! I also remember that whenever I visualized this, I saw myself happy in my work. Thinking about myself in there, going about my work that nobody else could see , feeling the growing spaciousness of the cavern I was creating, it all made me happy, and that happiness carried over to the non-metaphoric, real life chipping too.
The beauty of the metaphor helped bring a real joy to the chipping….the Qigong, the chanting, the Jin shin jitsu…..all of it.
In a very blessed and adventurous life not much has compared to the amazing journey through the iceberg!
With my love and gratitude for all you gave me, Howard, and continue to give to this community!
So, my friend, Marie, here we are two years after you becoming cured from Parkinson’s. Absolutely amazing! And, here you are, still such an active part of our recovery community with this latest comment posted yesterday. I want everybody to know that I never have asked you to post a single comment since your recovery, but instead, that you have continued to give of yourself from your heart. I am grateful for you, Marie. With blessings, gratitude, and love, Howard.
CONGRATULATIONS, MARIE!!! TWO YEARS SYMPTOM FREE FULL RECOVERY FROM PARKINSON’S!!!
Who’s next? What are you waiting for?
Make the commitment to cure yourself from Parkinson’s!
Okay, everybody, put big smiles on your faces and chant together so the whole world can hear:
“Parkinson’s is curable.
I am my own Parkinson’s cure.
I am halting, slowing, and reversing the progression of my Parkinson’s.
I am extraordinary.
I am recovery.
I am doing great!
AND, I AM WORTH IT!!!”
All my best,
