Fighting Parkinson’s, and Betty M. is one year symptom free!

WOW! Betty M. is one year symptom free. How inspiring is that! Last year at this time I was meeting in Tampa with Margriet from the Netherlands when Betty M. said it was time to announce her recovery. One year ago today, on August 20, 2013, I posted, Fighting Parkinson’s, and Betty M. is symptom free. For the last year, Betty has continued to inspire us by periodically commenting on blog posts I have written.

CONGRATULATIONS, BETTY! One year symptom free, cured of Parkinson’s. That is absolutely wonderful!!!

And, my friends, here is one more great inspiration from Betty. A few weeks ago, she returned to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota to be examined by her doctors. It had been 11 months since her full recovery, 11 months since she had done the Recipe, and a year since being seen by the neurologists.

I received an email from her the evening of the appointment with a Subject Line, “PD-free!” When I opened the email, the first thing Betty wrote was this, “It’s official! Two out of two Mayo Clinic/Rochester neurologists agree: Betty does not have Parkinson’s.” I was elated. Good for Betty. Good for the neurologists who did not take away her diagnosis when they found no Parkinson’s. Good for all of you who I knew would be hearing this story today.

I asked Betty if she could get a copy her medical record and give me permission to share the findings with all of you. She said of course, and provided me the medical records last week. At the Mayo Clinic, Betty was seen by two neurologists who first documented her history, beginning with, “This patient has had imbalance since 2006 when she began lurching to the left.” The neurologists put her through all of their tests and then documented the following conclusion:

“Neuro: I agree entirely with Dr. Scharf. There is no evidence of parkinsonism.”

That’s it! Betty received a clean bill of health regarding her Parkinson’s. Congratulations Betty.

So, my friend Betty, here we are, all of us inspired by you and your recovery. Thank you for not giving up on yourself, and thank you for sharing your life and your story so freely with all of us.


Who’s next? What are you waiting for? Grab onto the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery&#0174 and let it be your road map to your recovery.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

    Congratulations, Betty! Having the docs at the Mayo Clinic agree that you’re cured is a major milestone. What you and Howard have accomplished is worth at least ten each of the Nobel Prize, the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Pulitzer, the Booker, the Oscar, the Emmy, the Miss America, the Grammy, the Tony, the World Cup, the Super Bowl, and the World Series. As all of us on this blessed recovery path know, it takes an incredible amount of dedication, faith, and hard work to accomplish what you have. From the bottom of my heart I thank you for your inspiration.

  13. Betty…Congratulations!!! Your success is a great inspiration.
    Seeing the time I will stand with you PD-FREE.
    Love and Blessings,
