Fighting Parkinson’s, and is Parkinson’s curable? Yes! Part 6

I began my last five posts with this: Is Parkinson’s curable? My answer is Yes, Parkinson’s is curable! This is what you need to know in your heart. Today, I want to lighten it up a little and have everybody take a mental break from Parkinson’s. Are you in?

Today I want to change things up. Today I want to paint a mental picture different from the gloom and doom mental picture created at the neurologist’s office and all over the internet. Here goes.

Suppose at the conclusion of your neurologist’s visit that you were told this:

“I notice that you are moving slowly, your balance is not great, you have some stiffness, and you have this tremor. These are very common ailments of people as they age, mostly being more pronounced when people are in their later 70’s in age. However, 1% of the population experiences a phenomenon that is a form of premature aging. That’s all you have. A form of premature aging. You have nothing to worry about. And, just like I would tell an older client, the more you move, the better you eat, the more you stretch, the more you get out and take walks with nature, and the more you reduce your stress, the better you will be. There is nothing to fear. Nothing bad will happen. There is nothing to prescribe for you except living a calmer, more joyful life. You are only experiencing “old age” a little early.”

So, my friends, how would you have felt if that is all you were told was wrong with you? How calm would your mind have been? How joyful would your heart have been? How many of you would have said to yourselves, “Oh, my, early old age…I should have come here sooner rather than worrying these last few years or so, thinking constantly ‘what is going wrong with me?'”

Are you in? If that had been your diagnosis, how many of you are in?

Sit with that feeling for a moment. Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh, suffering from nothing more than an earlier-than-expected natural aging process.


Now, while holding on to that outstanding feeling, that hope-and-faith-filled premature aging feeling of glee, let’s step back into present reality.

If you are doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® then you have nothing to worry about. You are healing your soul and releasing your dopamine by opening your heart, you are calming your mind by engaging in sitting zazen and releasing negative thoughts and fear, and you are healing your body by doing the physical part of the Recipe.

You might as well be suffering from nothing more than premature aging. You have nothing more to fear than that, which means you have nothing to fear at all. No fear of life. No fear of Parkinson’s. No fear! Just recovery.

As we have discussed many times before, where your heart is focused and where your mind is focused, your body will respond.

Faith. Attitude. Action. Progress. Recovery. Cure! Are you in!

Is Parkinson’s Curable? Yes!

They say incurable. We say, “YES, IN CURABLE!”
They say impossible. We say, “YES, I’M POSSIBLE!”

So, embrace the Recipe and chant with me:

“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.


All my best,

    At last a decent Parkinsons website without promoting Big Pharma.
    You’re an inspiration Howard. I’ve been doing the chanting (Ling Yaw etc) as best I can (PD affects my voice) and feeling it working for me. I’ll contact you in a week or so for a Skype consultation 🙂
    Thank you for all the splendid Qigong videos too on Youtube.

    Keep on, keeping on!
    James in ol’ Blighty 🙂

    • Helen C. says:

      James, for me, the chanting was one of the hardest, most tiring parts of the recipe but I would urge you to stick with it; it gradually gets easier!

  7. Karen in Ireland says:

    Hi James in Blighty, welcome to our community of Warriors! Always great to see new people here. You’ve been guided to your cure. Welcome, welcome, you’re in fine company!
    Karen 🙂

    • James in Suffolk, England says:

      Thank you so much Karen. We’re in good company 😉 Hope you are doing your exercises, chanting & Qigong (or whatever floats your boat)
      Today I did an hour’s Qigong in the back garden: much to the amusement of my neighbour’s children! I’m a relative newbie though; currently into Mingtong Gu (Chi Center, California) he’s young but full of knowledge!
      Take care,
      James (aka Seamus!)

    Thank you Howard thank you all. I feel blessed stronger inspired and happier. We are on a great journey of life and health. Goodnight love Helen

    Hi, & thanks for the posts; currently struggling with Recipe & visualizing energy flow.
    doing palm to rib rotations, trunk & neck twists, standing, ling yow chant & meditation/affirmations;-part of me rebels/resists, though.
    adopting ‘silver lining’ approach = eg. slow is beautiful, take the time, so rare to notice what’s around, time to pray, ‘smell the roses’.
    listened to Barry Lipton on epigenetics. Howard, thanks for motivating me; frankly, in-credible…! Tom

    • Debbie says:

      Hi Tom,
      You are very brave. Keep up the good work. I am always rewarded when I keep trying….Even if it is just that I know I am doing my best. I agree…it is always good to take time to pray and to smell the roses. Life is good, Parkinson’s is curable…if you are doing your best and doing the recipe….your best is always good enough.
      I hope you have a good day

    After two years of doing the recipe regularly and biweekly Skype sessions with Howard, I am finally putting the pieces of the puzzle together and seeing the whole picture! I continue to fight depression, anxiety, and fear but I am now armed with effective tools for defense when they rear their ugly heads! If I am not facing any danger then there is no need to fear! Without fear, anxiety and depression lose their power. It is all coming together and I am gaining strength over my fears. Thankyou Fellow warriors for your words of encouragement and Howard for your continual support and patience. Much love to all! We can do this, we are worth it! Melanie

      hola a todos y gracias Melanie por compartir tus sentimientos, todos enfrentamos esos fantasmas cuando empeoran los sintomas , la mente basada en adrenalina de inmediato se pone a trabajar generando pensamientos destructivos, justo ayer veia como el temblor de mis manos y en mi cuerpo aumenta, y extremo cansancio y agotamiento tambien y de inmediato el miedo quiere surguir sin emargo digo algunas afirmaciones para desmantelar al ego-miedo, o salgo a caminar. tus comentarios ayudan mucho para entendernos y tener compasion .y en lugar de temer o de odiarse que surga el sentimiento de amarse a uno mismo decirse VAS MUY BIEN MUCHACHO , SIGUE ADELANTE , NO ESTAS SOLO.
      Me gustaria saber la opinion de algunos compañeros de viaje, mientras llega el nuevo spot


      Hello everyone and thank Melanie for sharing your feelings, all face the ghosts when symptoms worsen, based on adrenaline mind immediately goes to work creating destructive thoughts, just yesterday looked like the shaking of my hands and my body increases, and extreme tiredness and exhaustion and also immediately arise without fear. I say some statements to dismantle the ego-fear, or take a walk. Your feedback helps a lot to understand and have compassion and instead of fearing or hating it exchange the feeling of loving yourself saying GOOD JOB, GO FORWARD, NOT ALONE.
      I would like to know the opinion of some fellow travelers, while the new spot arrives.

  11. Karen in Ireland says:

    Hi Jimmy, I am writing again as you asked for feedback from other warriors. Like you, I applaud Melanie for sharing her vulnerability. I have to say Melanie, in sharing, you lack Fear and demonstrate massive strength. I am always humbled when fellow warriors share their truth. Jimmy we ALL struggle when our symptoms seem to get worse and we feel ” what if I’m one of the ones who never recover?” It takes huge strength and discipline to quiet the mind, and let the heart speak. I get scared at times and wonder have I the strength to endure this journey to the end. I’m staggered at times how I can go from being so positive to so low in a matter of a day. Ofcourse, it is because my symptoms are so challenging. In my heart I truly know as I think we all do, that this condition Is curable, Howard and the others have proved that, we just need to truly believe that each and every one of us will make it. Finding the joy when our bodies are unravelling, for me, is the hardest challenge. I constantly ask God ” let the voice of my soul be louder than the voice of my fear”. As Howard says, symptoms just show us we have more work to do to get to the shiney teapot through the tarnish. I see the shiney teapot already in all of us. I love our courage and our strength and our perseverance, our vulnerability and our Hope. We truly ROCK and shake lol. Please God ” this too shall pass”. When our symptoms are at their absolute worse, whose to know, the darkest hour is just before the dawn! Love you all.

    • Cynthia (from England) says:

      Dear Karen, you have said everything I feel, that the voice of my soul will be louder than the voice of my mind. The shiny teapot is what we all long to be. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. X

    HI Melanie, You have said what I am feeling and my story is the same, thank you for putting it into words for me – so eloquent!!! I also liked the lightness of this post – so appropriate after the dark winter. This mooring i felt really tired , just wanting to stay sitting, had to go for groceries and so glad I did. IT is a beautiful day, warm sun and feeling very much alive out there. Hi to everyone – the chatting back and forth sure helps me. love to all, Marilyn

  14. Melanie says:

    Thanks to all for your kind words and encouragement! We can ALL recover, it is so easy to fall off the path with discouragement when symptoms worsen! It takes a lot of constant positive self talk! “Triumph is often nearest when defeat seems inescapable”! Keep the faith, we can do this! We are definitely worth it!!!! Love to all! Melanie
