Here we are with 10 days left in my 30-day November to Remember, No Excuses November, challenge 2013. Many of you are running strong and already know you will be continuing with the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® after the 30 days…good for you! Some of you are struggling (more like shuffling strong rather than running strong), but you are feeling something changing within you and you already know you will be continuing with the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® after the 30 days…good for you! And then there are the rest of you who still are uncertain if you should do the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. If you are reading this post then you are still coming to this site and reading the blog and still thinking about the Recipe…good for you, too! It is never too late!!!
I might as well get right to the point and direct my comments to those filled with uncertainty.
Think about this as relates to Parkinson’s recovery:
General Parkinson’s prognosis:
1. Body. It will progressively degenerate. There is no way to stop this. There is no cure.
2. Mind. You cannot slow the progression. There is nothing that can be done. There is no cure.
3. Soul. There is no hope. Why put my faith in trying. There is no cure.
See the Michael J. Fox Foundation website confirming their prognosis:
“There are treatments available to lessen the effects of Parkinson’s symptoms for some window of time, but this is all they can do — offer symptomatic relief. What we don’t have is a disease-modifying treatment, something that would actually halt or slow the progression of the disease.” And, “No drug on today’s market has been proven to slow or stop Parkinson’s disease. Available drugs only mask the symptoms.” https://www.michaeljfox.org/understanding-parkinsons/living-with-pd/topic.php?medication.
My Parkinson’s prognosis (Parkinson’s is curable! First, heal the soul, and the mind and the body will follow):
1. Soul. Faith and hope. Repeat, “I have the power to heal myself.” Know that being cured is possible. If I did it and Marie did it, and Pratima did it, and Betty did it, KNOW that you can do it and be cured, too.
2. Mind. Let go of fear. Accept that you have Parkinson’s Disease, but refuse to accept that you cannot be cured. Give away fear to your Higher Power and stay focused on your path to being cured.
3. Body. Do the Qigong and heal your body.
See the following additional link and comments confirming my prognosis:
As pointed out in my previous post, once you decide that you can and will be cured and are taking action against your Parkinson’s, you already are recovering. I know, it doesn’t feel like you are recovering because of your symptoms. So, stop focusing on your symptoms, stop focusing on living your Parkinson’s, and start focusing on living your life, which includes your path toward your Parkinson’s cure. I cannot express this point enough.
What about symptoms? They are just something you have to accept you will have for a while. Something that will be part of your life for now. Something to remind you to stay on your path so our internal healing can take place. Something that will go away once you are cured. That’s all the symptoms are…life is so much more than symptoms. Don’t you agree?
So, for those of you still thinking about accepting my challenge and committing to yourself to do the scaled-down version of the Recipe, you have been thinking and over-thinking this for 20 days. Here is a new thought: How about joining the doers and taking action to be your own Parkinson’s cure! You can do it! You are worth it!
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,
