Fighting Parkinson’s, and your viewpoint of reality

Reality. You have Parkinson’s. Reality. If you have Parkinson’s, you have symptoms. What you decide to do about your Parkinson’s and your symptoms is a choice, and your choice is grounded in your viewpoint of reality.

Reality. You have Parkinson’s, a diagnosis based upon you having a certain set of symptoms. That is what is real.

Whether you feel you have the ability to recover, whether you feel that a change in symptoms means you are getting better or worse, whether you feel filled with hope and faith or filled with fear and despair…all of these are dependent upon your viewpoint.

A cow is in the pasture and two men are sitting on the fence, one man from the US and the other man from India. The man from the US is looking at the cow thinking about a steak dinner, and the man from India is looking at the cow thinking about being in the presence of a sacred being. Reality: One cow in the pasture, two men sitting on the fence. Everything else is the viewpoint of reality.

What is your viewpoint of reality?

Are you choosing to view your Parkinson’s and your symptoms with the Western Medicine gloom and doom prognosis of you progressively degenerating for the rest of your life with no treatment that can slow or halt the disease and treatments that can only mask your symptoms for a window of time?


Are you choosing to view your Parkinson’s and your symptoms with the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® hope and faith prognosis that a life out of balance can be physically, mentally, and spiritually brought back into balance and cured from Parkinson’s?

Reality. You have Parkinson’s, a diagnosis based upon you having a certain set of symptoms. That is what is real.

What is your viewpoint? You see, your viewpoint determines your future reality.

If your viewpoint is the Western Medicine viewpoint, then you have no chance of being cured. That becomes your reality. That is what they tell you. They tell you that although they can provide treatments for symptom relief, what they do not have is a disease modifying treatment, that is, something that actually can slow or halt the disease. Click here, and you can read it directly from them.

If your viewpoint is the Recipe viewpoint, then you have a chance of being cured. That becomes your reality. I am cured. Marie is cured. Pratima is cured. Betty is cured. Hundreds of you doing the Recipe have reported slowing, halting, and reversing the disease, not masking symptoms, but actually recovering from the disease. Outstanding!

As you can see, your viewpoint of reality changes your future. When you are doing the Recipe, filled with faith, and hope, and love, and gratitude, and forgiveness, and compassion, and contentment, you fill your heart with joy, and you open your dopamine faucet…and you live your life through your joyful heart, keeping your recovery viewpoint of reality alive and well.

And, when you live your life through your joyful heart, keeping your recovery viewpoint of reality alive and well, you realize that whatever is happening in your life is necessary in your life and in your recovery, and fearlessly, you accept it as part of your life. In the end, reality equals your cure from Parkinson’s.

What is in the past is in the past.
What is in the present is reality.
Your viewpoint of this present reality determines your future.

What is your viewpoint of reality?

It is your life. It is your choice.

Look inside your heart and make the choice that feels right to you.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

    Thank you Howard! I was so happy to open my e-mail this morning and find your encouraging message. I was wondering how to assess my reality as I had recently been having a discussion with a friend about creating our own realities. Your explanation made everything so clear. I choose recovery as my reality. Perfect!

  2. Barbara says:

    Thank you Howard!

    Our beliefs create our reality.

    “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he”.

    The medical community only says what they know. We don’t have to agree with them or believe them.

    Thank you again for helping all of us have a different point of view.



  3. Waseema from England says:

    Oh Howard!
    I just love the reminders you send us. I am living the reality of recovery and am truly grateful to you. Life’s wonderful when you choose to participate fully rather than become the victim. I’m still learning how to get my life into balance but I know things are moving in the right direction for me.
    Love and blessings to all.

    Hi Howard and community of warriors,
    I love your posts Howard I truly do. I have given this some thought. In my heart and soul, my truth is I believe in you and The Receipe and My reality is that I have faith and Trust that my body will return to perfect health when I have cleared the four areas of toxicity. I have to honour another truth, the reality of this condition no matter how positive I am, has days when it truly overwhelmes me. I allow the tears to flow as I listen to what is going on for me. Usually it is when I am weary of dragging myself around, there are days it is exhausting. I am sharing this as I am sure there are many who don’t comment here as we all seem so positive and focused. I am and I know I will get there and I believe in my healing, but there are moments when it just sucks experiencing this disease. In those moments I pick myself up in the reality that Parkinson’s Is Curable. Where I am right now is exactly where I am meant to be. My body is doing its best and all these symptoms are necessary in removing blockages and me letting go of any and all resistance. I put on a piece of uplifting music. I LOVE Steven Curtis Chapman, there is a track on his CD The Glorious Unfolding, called ” take another step” which empowers me. Then OFCOURSE if I need a further lift, I re-read Howard’s latest posts and always puts me back on track.
    I think Parkinson’s sufferers are an amazing group of individuals with amazing courage and strength in walking this path. I believe in all of us and am honoured to be part of the Reality of Howard and this community.
    Big Love
    Karen xx

    • Thank you Karen for being real about the challenges….. I treasure this kind of authenticity because it encourages me to be compassionate with myself as I acknowledge emotions that do exist, and to cry if I feel like crying. It’s a way of honouring myself…and being real with what is real. This being real then liberates me to open the door to infinite possibilities and to choose strategies that most support my continuing journey to health…. as I attend to this, steadfastly, trustfully, consistently and lovingly, I realise I am exactly where I need to be….and that includes being enormously grateful for the support offered on Howard’s website, and by the man himself….so thank you Howard….thank you, Karen and thank all of you in my PD community…. I’m choosing to follow the “Recipe for Recovery” with my eyes (and heart) wide open…

    • Julie chapman says:

      Thankyou for explaining a part of your journey Karen, you and Howard really have nailed it with this newsletter! I had one of my worst days yesterday haven’t taken meds 2 days but was only on minimal dose. Constant mind chat about how badly I’m doing rebutted by how well I’m doing, with intermittent but excruciating backache thrown in – I’m sure posture is 60% of cause, but all driving me nuts. I will start again at the recipe, and thankyou for the sharing and support! Julie

  5. judy says:

    Thank-you so much, Howard, for the analogy about the cow! What clarity!
    And, thank-you, Barbara, and Waseema for such encouraging and liberating words!

  6. Karen in Ireland says:

    Hi Penny, cheers for your comment my friend. I am happy that you ” got” what I was saying. As Howard says it is all about balance, it’s ok for us to honour ourselves in the low times and like you, I feel blessed to have found Howard and this community. God in motion. 😉
    Thanks again Penny.

  7. Marie says:

    Thank you, Howard, for introducing me to the reality that I could cure myself. The doom and gloom of Western Medicine’s approach to Parkinson’s was all that I could find for so long as I searched the Internet incessantly. With everything I read I became more frightened and more discouraged. And then……you with your message of hope. You….with the Recipe I could follow to my own cure. And I did follow it to my own cure.

    That change in perspective, that shift of reality, stands as one of the most profound experiences of my life. Whoosh….everything was changed and I was in a new reality where there was hope and gratitude. Nothing had changed yet physically, and yet everything had changed. I knew I could recover. I never read another mainstream medicine word about Parkinson’s, and shifted to the reality of Recovery. It was like walking out of a dark and dank prison cell into a beautiful and sparkling new world.

    I am so grateful. Thank you, Howard, my dear friend, thank you!!

    My love and encouragement to all of you who are on your own journey to your very own Recovery.

    Hi dear friends, four years reading everything that is written here, and helped enormously posts here, I have no fear of the future, we greatly reduced the dose of pills taken just two days {AFTER 14 YEARS OF DISEASE) and if osteoporosis, and other diseases have allowed me to make recipe, now I had Parkinson’s. Thank God I’m independent, I enjoy every day with my family
    and you who are my close to my heart. Love LEO

    Hi Howard and Everyone,
    Thank you to all of you for sharing your journey and lives with me. What a magnificent group of people. I am so grateful for the gift of life that I have been given. I am grateful for the opportunity to further enjoy and develop the many beautiful truths I have . I am thankful for the opportunity I have to decide to look for and then possess, all the wonderful blessings that God has given me. I know in my heart that I am getting better. I am appreciative that I can choose my own reality. I , like Howard and Marie, choose recovery. I am worth it. And so are all of you.
    Have a fabulous weekend
    Love and Blessings

  10. Melanie says:

    Thanks to all of you for your uplifting comments and thanks to Karen for giving a glimpse of down days which we all experience now and then as we pull ourselves up by our bootstraps back onto the road to recovery. And thanks to Howard, our fearless leader who paved the way and continually brings us back on track with his profound words of encouragement and focus. My overwhelming gratitude to all of you!

  11. ken says:

    Thank you, Marie for your willingness to keep posting even after defeating and putting Parkinson’s too bed. How I, and am sure we value your wise contributions.

  12. MARILYN MURRAY says:

    Thanks to all of you for sharing about your down times – it is good to be honest and not alone with dark fears – it is so supporting. And Leontine, I too was diagnosed 14 years ago and have been fighting PD now for over 5 years – I am not discouraged as I have learned to take one day at a time, celebrating every small victory (little miracles) . The recipe really does make a difference!!!! Love, Marilyn

  14. Margee says:

    I love all of you and thank you for sharing your experience , strength, and hope. I am grateful to have such dear ones with whom to share this journey. Howard, your blog was right on target, as always. Your commitment to all of us means more than you will ever know, or maybe you already know. The mind…our thinking is SO POWERFUL! “Where the mind goes, the man follows.” I have just celebrated 6 mos of doing the RECIPE. And, my experience has been exactly as you have reported in your blogs. Presently, the outside (my symptoms) don’t reveal what I KNOW is taking place on the inside of me, which is necessary, first. I have noticed huge changes physically, emotionally, and spiritually, as I consistently chip away on the inside wall of the iceberg, day by day, by doing the Recipe. I have no doubt that the day will come when the iceberg will be no more. And that is my reality. I keep little encouragers around my house to remind me of that coming day; a turtle on a skateboard, some dancing shoes, a golf glove, a pair of high heels! Everyday, I thank God for the opportunity/ability to do the RECIPE. And, I grow grateful thinking that each day I do it, I am one day closer to THE DAY that I’ll be strutting in those heels.

    • Debbie says:

      Hi Margee, I love the idea of having little reminders that you are getting better all around the house . I am going to start looking for some special things for me today. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful healing day.

  15. judy says:

    thank-you all for your transparency, bravery, comments,, Karen….now I can quit wondering if anyone else is like me!
    hope is my anchor…..

  16. Helen Gill says:

    Thank you Howard, Karen and everyone including Marie. We are all in this together. What a time. We need and have great courage. I had been feeling really good energy, joy, love and courage, then after Xmas I had a fall, and set myself back physically and emotionally. I was so stiff I fell again, twice. I fell because I did too much, as I had been feeling so well. I came home from being away for xmas, and cleaned the house instead of resting. I am learning sometimes the same lesson over and over again. It’s so good to have you all to talk to about it. I am getting back on track again, and loving life, grateful for the Recovery recipie My specialist just laughed with me the other day when I said I still don’t want medication, I choose to feel conscious, of this life, feel the joy and experience of life. Goodnight to you all from Australia Helen xx
