Fighting Parkinson’s, and how your electricity flows

You have heard me say many times that Parkinson’s is an electrical issue, not a chemical one, and solving Parkinson’s involves looking at your electrical impulses flowing through your bodies…when there are blockages, there are tremors, and as the blockages are opened, usually there is pain. Let’s take a look at your electricity. So, how is your electricity flowing?

To begin our discussion, here is a thought about pain: Feeling pain means you are feeling something. In a non-Parkinson’s sufferer, I believe the thought process is like this: “I feel okay, and when I feel pain, then something is wrong.” I learned, as a Parkinson’s sufferer, that the thought process had taken on a whole new life: “There are areas where I feel nothing, but I know that something is wrong with me. When I feel pain, at least I know the electrical impulses are alive and going to an area where I have been feeling nothing.” Much to many of your regret, I also see this as “good” pain.

It means that the electrical impulses are alive and prepared to carry the messages. That is very good news, albeit in some cases, painfully good news. My most overwhelming experience with this was the morning I felt horrible pain in my left side. My initial panic was that the Parkinson’s was getting worse. Once I settled down, I remembered years ago I had pulled a muscle doing side bends, and this pain was remarkably similar to that pain.

After moving around a little to see when the pain would become pronounced, it hit me: As a result of having no feeling in my left hip and surrounding muscles, I had pulled a muscle doing the Medical Qigong for Liver, and NOW, for the first time, I was experiencing the pain. As I am certain all of you have experienced, this is a doubled-edged sword. “Yes, I am feeling pain where I have felt nothing for months so I am happy to know the nerves are working, BUT this really hurts.”

However, I still viewed the horrible pain as “good” pain. But, let’s back up a little to your tremors. Here is what many are facing and how some are viewing it: “I had a tremor and started doing the Recipe and my tremor increased, and so did my pain. I feel like the Recipe is making my symptoms worse.” Usually this is more pronounced during Standing and Brain Vibration Chanting. In actuality, these temporarily increased tremors and the temporarily increased pain are excellent signs that you are healing yourself.

If you take a look at the Recipe and my explanations for why I selected certain things, you will find the following:
“Here is a Qigong exercise I did called “standing.” That’s all you do…stand. It is a very powerful exercise because it opens channels, lubricates joints and gets balance back where it should be.” And, “I did the brain vibration chanting to increase the energy in my brain.”

When you are doing the Qigong that involves movement, your awareness is focused on the movement and doing the Qigong itself. Tremors tend to decrease when you are moving…or maybe you are just less aware of them because you are involved in an activity that requires your attention to be diverted from your tremors. Standing, whether you like it or not, forces you to be aware of everything that is going on with your bodies, and you become aware if your tremors increase.

The wonderful thing is that these increased tremors mean that you have created increased electrical impulses and that these increased electrical impulses are smashing the energy blockages trying to locate a passageway to connect “normal” energy flow in your bodies…and this smashing into the blockages causes your tremors to increase, temporarily. Any other understanding is fear-based…fear that says, “Any time tremors increase, my Parkinson’s is getting worse.” Fight the fear — two minutes ago when you were doing a moving Qigong, your tremors were the same…your disease did not take an enormous downturn in the last two minutes while standing.

Fight the fear because fear will make you stop. It is the same thing with Brain Vibration Chanting. Brain Vibration Chanting is to increase energy in your brains…your energy-weakened Parkinson’s brains. If you are doing Brain Vibration Chanting and your tremors start to increase, this is cause for celebration — clearly you are being successful in increasing your brain energy which translates into sending more, and stronger, electrical impulses into your bodies, and when these increased and more powerful electrical impulses hit the blockages that are causing you to tremor in the first place, you tremor more! Excellent! This is success.

And with continued success of this kind, the increased and more powerful electrical impulses eventually break through and open the blockages and the tremors begin to subside. How delightful is that?

However, this process requires dedication, faith in yourself, your Higher Power, and the process, and it requires the ability to realize that the fear you are facing is FEAR — False Evidence Appearing Real — the Parkinson’s inside you thrives on this kind of FEAR as it is the only way for the Parkinson’s inside you to survive. Fight the fear and the FEAR and you disarm your Parkinson’s. Fight the fear and the FEAR and you experience liberation from Parkinson’s grip.

Let’s look at the biggest fear. It starts at the beginning with the definition of Parkinson’s…incurable, progressively degenerative disease. I accept that Parkinson’s is an incurable, progressively degenerative disease if you do nothing to fight it or if you take medications and do nothing else to fight it. History shows this clearly, so it is not difficult to accept: For the nearly 200 years since the symptoms received the name Parkinson’s Disease, people who do nothing to fight the disease and people who take medications and do nothing else to fight the disease, all suffer from an incurable, progressively degenerative disease. So fear is very real for these two groups.

However, I refuse to accept that Parkinson’s is incurable if you are doing something to fight it, and I refuse to accept that Parkinson’s is a progressively degenerative disease if we are doing something to fight it! And this “doing something to fight it” disarms Parkinson’s and makes fear and FEAR very false. Why?


So when you are doing the Recipe and your tremors temporarily increase or your pain temporarily increases, and you start to experience the fear that things are getting worse, be AWARE of where that fear is coming from. Put it through the FEAR test — “1. It is Appearing Real that my Parkinson’s is getting worse. 2. However, this is False Evidence.”

And then you realize, “I know this fear is actually FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) because I am fighting my Parkinson’s on my path toward my cure and I am winning. My fear cannot pass the FEAR test. My fear is not real.”

Let go of the fear and the FEAR and stay on your path toward your cure. Remember 2014 is the year of faith!

You are worth it!

All my best,

    It only makes my resolve stronger.
    Thank you Howard for your clear insight.

  6. Deborah says:

    Since beginning the Recipe for Recovery three weeks ago, I’ve noticed a mild tremor in my right hand during Brain Vibration chanting. Normally, I don’t have tremor. But, oddly, I wasn’t alarmed by the appearance of this new symptom, perhaps because it only happens during the chant. Thanks for affirming my intuition that this tremor is a sign that energy is trying to find a way through blockages, Howard. I’ll hold that thought when I practice the chant.

  7. Helen says:

    Thank you Howard great encouragement and insight. Great to get that feedback about Fear and brain chanting. Onwards and upwards and forwards and now, I go. Xx

    Thank you Howard for an important reminder of dealing with FEAR. The concept of electricity is so important but never talked about elsewhere. You are providing a marvelous service to us all.

    Best wishes,

  15. Kevin says:

    I’m flying Howard, sometimes by the wings you helped me develop and at times just by the seat of my pants. Either way it’s all good. Thank you for helping me sit quietly in my heart Coach.

  16. Marie says:

    Dear Howard, I am always so grateful To you for your example. Not only did you cure yourself, but you shared your experience with us all. On my own, I doubt that I would have had the courage to buck the traditional description of Parkinson’s as an incurable progressive degenerative disease and set of on the road to recovery. Thanks to you, and your example, I did not have to. Your example was there to inspire me, and you had a set program, The Recipe for Recovery, for me to follow. No matter how many times I thank you, Howard, I can never thank you enough! My gratitude lives in my heart.
    Though I don’t do the Recipe for Recovery… having recovered fully and completely…I have continued on with my daily qigong practice. At the end of practice, when I bow to acknowledge my qigong teacher, and his teacher, and all the teachers who kept Traditional Chinese Medicine alive through millennia, each day I always speak your name too, and thank you for the amazing gift you gave me. Thank you, Howard. Thank you. Thank you.

  17. Debbie says:

    Thank you Howard for your words of wisdom. It makes great sense to me. Your messages help to keep me disciplined in following the Recipe everyday. I am grateful to you .

  18. Pam in Savannah says:

    Howard, Howard,

    This is one of the best ever. I am going to print it, so it will be in my reading table. You Have no idea…it sums up everything I am doing with Qigung and divergence acupuncture.


  19. Allen says:

    Thank you Howard – that was a shot in the arm that I needed. Your continued support is much appreciated.

  20. Satsatnam says:

    I really disliked brain chanting and Stand Like a Tree for the very reasons you stated, increased tremors and stiffness. I really needed that explanation! Thank you. Now it makes sense in a way that encourages me to keep up.
