Reality is here. Reality is what is happening right here, right now. How you perceive reality is a choice. As daunting as this may seem, I am asking you to face reality and make this choice: If you are doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, then choose to accept that you are doing great!
When somebody asks you, “How are you doing?” please do not run down a mental evaluation of your symptoms that day to determine how to answer the question and then give them a rundown of how badly your symptoms are that day. You are not your symptoms. This probably needs repeating: YOU ARE NOT YOUR SYMPTOMS!
Instead, if you are doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® and you are asked, “How are you doing?” you should put a huge smile on your face and say, “I am doing great!” Make this your reality. If you choose this as your reality, it becomes your reality, right here, right now. Let’s do this together:
Howard: “How are you doing?”
Each of you: “I am doing GREAT!!!
If you are doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® then you are curing yourself from Parkinson’s Disease no matter what your symptoms look like that day, so “I am doing great!” is a truthful answer. Get our of your mind and into your heart. For a refresher on that point, please click here.
Think about it. Parkinson’s is considered a progressively degenerative disease from which there is no cure, and by doing the Recipe you are curing yourself no matter what the others think…the reality in this moment is that you are doing great! You need to know this. If you judge yourself by your symptoms, and then tell others how bad you think your symptoms are, they will judge you by your symptoms, agree with how bad you are, and then tell you all of the things other than the Recipe that you should be doing to “improve the quality of your life.” Of course, this would take you completely off of the path to your recovery. Is this what you want? I didn’t think so.
Instead, know in your heart that since you are doing the Recipe, you are curing yourself. It is the truth, so choose it as your reality. That should give you something to smile about, and it literally changes the face of Parkinson’s, one smiling face at a time.
And with that big smile on your face, give them a resounding, “I am doing great!” At that point, people will not notice your symptoms because your face and your answer will speak 1000 words about your symptoms — your symptoms do not define who you are. Your symptoms are nothing more than a notification that you have more work to do to bring your soul, mind, and body back into balance and be cured.

If you want people to stop bothering you to “do the things that you do not want to do” about your Parkinson’s, then you need to take the first giant leap of faith, choose your perception of your reality, and stop defining your life through your symptoms. Put a smile on your face and know in your heart that you are curing yourself from Parkinson’s. That should make you feel great. And then, truthfully and fearlessly answer the question “How are you doing?” with a huge a smile and a resounding, “I am doing great!” The reality is, yes you are…you are doing great!!!
Okay, everybody, put big smiles on your faces and chant together so the whole world can hear.
“This is my reality, the reality I am choosing:
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,
