A couple of weeks ago, I wrote, Fighting Parkinson’s, and no fear of increasing symptoms. Some questions that came up after that post have prompted me to write a part 2. Today we will look at why you need not have fear of increasing symptoms and why you need not have fear of your Parkinson’s.
Shortly after posting “Fighting Parkinson’s, and no fear of increasing symptoms,” I received this inquiry:
“Those of us who are doing the recipe and the symptoms increase that means we are generating energy and it is hitting the blockages hence we experience increase in symptoms. How about the ones who do not do the recipe and experience increase in symptoms, what does that mean?”
“Parkinson’s is progressively degenerative if you are doing nothing about it (how we all ended up at the neurologist), and if you are following the Western Medicine treatment plan only (they tell you that you only will get worse). So, if you are doing nothing or are following the Western Medicine treatment plan only and symptoms appear worse it is because you are getting worse.
If you are doing the Recipe, whether you are taking medications or not, you are getting better every day. Sometimes that means “facing” the symptoms that were suppressed on the way to getting the disease, the things that were ignored. When you are doing the Recipe, unearthing these issues, and generating good new energy, whatever the symptoms are doing is simply a sign of getting better.”
As you can see, by doing the Recipe, you are doing something that negates the “doing nothing” you were doing when you ended up at the neurologist. And, even if you are taking medications, if you are doing the Recipe, you are doing something beneficial in addition to the Western medicine treatment plan, and that negates doing “the Western Medicine treatment plan only.”
Everything in the Recipe is designed for recovery, so if you are doing it, you are on your path to recovery. Click here for a reminder of the recovery signs you can see along the journey to your full recovery.
There is no reason to be afraid of your symptoms and no reason to be afraid of Parkinson’s.
Suppose on the first day of the season, the coach handed everybody on the team a playbook and then said if they followed the playbook exactly like it was written they would not win a single game. What would happen? Everybody on the team would lose hope of winning a single game, and in the end, they would not win a single game. That is the Western Medicine playbook.
However, you are playing with the winning playbook, the one that leads to recovery, the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® playbook. You need not be afraid of losing.
The gloom and doom you are told at the neurologist’s office or have read on the internet about Parkinson’s is really saying, “If you are following the Western Medicine disease management plan only, the disease is incurable.” They are correct. However, you are not following their disease management drug related “treatment” of symptoms regimen only, so NOTHING you have heard or read about the future of life with Parkinson’s applies to you.
Parkinson’s Disease is viewed as a progressively degenerative incurable neurological disease. The medications for the disease assist with the symptoms, but they do not stop one from getting worse and they do not cure the disease; also, they have many undesirable side effects. The herbal remedies, supplements, and Ayurvedic formulas assist with the symptoms, but they do not stop one from getting worse and they do not cure the disease; also, they have many undesirable side effects. If either the medications or these alternative remedies cured the disease, then the disease would not be designated as incurable.
This brings me to the point that if you want to recover, the place to start is to believe that “I have the power to heal myself.” Why? Because nobody who is treating you believes that you can recover or be cured. No offense to them, but they are approaching Parkinson’s treatment from the perspective of disease management. If you want to have a shot at recovery, you have to transcend the conventional wisdom of Parkinson’s disease management and strive to get yourself better.
Since Parkinson’s symptoms are a little different in everybody, you know better than anybody how the disease is affecting you physically, mentally and spiritually. Have confidence in yourself. Believe in yourself. You understand the disease and how it impacts you, not just how it impacts the general public. Do not miss this point: Who knows best how this disease is affecting you? You do.
The Western Medicine playbook for Parkinson’s goes like this: first they say you have Parkinson’s and then they say you should have no hope of recovery. Moreover, they are in the business of disease management. They do not believe you can keep your symptoms in check; they do not believe you can reverse your symptoms; they do not believe you can recover and be cured. Click here to read the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s view of treating symptoms only with no offering to slow or halt the disease.
I am focused on disease eradication! My playbook, the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, chips away at Parkinson’s, eliminates the causes, and the result is recovery.
Last year, a study came out of Denmark stating that my theory of Parkinson’s (dopamine not depleted, only blocked) is correct. It also said that the Western Medicine theory of Parkinson’s (dopamine depleted, brain cells dead) is incorrect and never has been proven in a scientific study. Click here to read about how your dopamine is not depleted.
As you can see, if you are doing the Recipe, the soul, mind, and body recovery of the Recipe, you have nothing to fear about your symptoms and nothing to fear about your Parkinson’s.
You can do this!!!
Is Parkinson’s Curable? Yes!
They say incurable. We say, “YES, IN CURABLE!”
They say impossible. We say, “YES, I’M POSSIBLE!”
Okay! Let’s all grab onto the winning playbook, the Recipe, and chant together for the whole world to hear:
“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.
AND, I AM WORTH IT!!!”
Yes, you are worth it!!!
All my best,
Thank you Howard it’s always a relief to read your posts. You have got our backs!?whee! Thank you. I know it’s possible 4 people have been cured. I’m hanging in there, every day is a new day a gift of grace. Love Helen Australia
Hi Howard and fellow warriors, POWERFUL post Howard! 🙂 love it!
I am in agony at the moment and delighted to be as I feel it is because the muscles in my right arm and shoulder are coming alive again! The shoulder is so painful to lie on and the muscles so sore! Hooray hooray hooray! This tortoise is nearer the finish line than the start of the race. Even having the odd waft of smell again. Tee hee hee! Getting so close to my shiney teapot! 🙂 .
Big love to all.
Western doctors prove themselves time and time again all they know is drugs and for many holistic doctors its a bunch of “hot air” When I first went to the top doctors in neurology in New York city the first thing they wanted to do was put me on drugs, I remember her telling me “I want to build a long lasting relationship with you Tony…” NO THANKS LADY! I’ve been having symptoms for almost 3 years and I went to doctors with no help at all. Thank God for Howard because he makes it very clear what’s going on. I don’t believe the battle is us against Parkinson’s I believe the battle is “us against us”. I’m in pain all the time but I also know for a fact that God will see us through, our best days are not behind us they are in front of us! victory is inevitable, we were not meant to suffer we were meant to succeed! and everyday we follow the recipe were are all succeeding! God Bless us all!
Right on the money, Howard. Thanx for the reminder! Yes, Karen….”the odd waft of smell”: that wasn’t supposed to happen, the return of smell. But, it did!!
Oh, how timely 🙂 Two days ago I was sad because my movements have become slower than usual, and the tremor is sometimes worse. When this happens, it’s hard for me not to get scared, looking into that dreadful tunnel of lifelong medication, only getting worse and slowly fading away scenario.
So I felt I had to read your post from the other week again and also the earlier ones on the theme “getting worse before getting better”. After doing so I felt so much calmer and also very, very grateful that I have found you and this wonderful community.
Because the fact is, that even though I’m in the middle of an intensive working period with long hours, I feel happy and energetic on the inside. And I totally credit my receipe-practice every morning for making me feel so good after all. After reading your great posts, I understand that some symptoms appearing worse in combination with actually feeling better on the inside, is logic after all. Thank you so much Howard, I don’t want to think about where I would be heading if I hadn’t found your website.
All the best to you and the rest of this lovely community!
This is the most concise, direct, and poignant commentary of this disease. Thank you thank you thank you Howard. I have the power to heal myself and I am doing it every single day as I do the recipe. I feel incrementally better every single day I wake up. I notice small changes and I know I am healing. Love your cells and they will love you back. Sending each of you light and love and blessings. Susana
I had another wonderful uplifting and inspiring Skype session with Howard today. I know I’m on the mend and have faith in my recovery. Thank you Howard for lifting us all up by our bootstraps whenever we need it. Thank you for keeping us on the road to recovery. With the finish line in sight, we know we are all heading in the right direction. It’s just a matter of time, different for each of us and we too can experience full recovery as those who have done it before us. Thanks to them, we know full recovery is possible. Keep the faith fellow warriors, we are almost there!
We have a fantastic Saturday food market in our neighbourhood (recently voted the 2nd best food market in the UK) but I haven’t felt able to go shopping there for several months. This morning I decided to take on board all of Howard’s lessons about letting go of fear and to go to the market. I reminded myself that it doesn’t matter that I’m slow, that I shuffle, and that I’d have to ask the stall-holder to put my shopping in my bag for me. I only went to one stall but what a lovely time I had! The last time I went there the young man on the stall told me his wife had just learned she was pregnant; this time he greeted me with a kiss on each cheek and excitedly told me all about his newborn son. I exchanged lots of smiles during my outing – some initiated by me and some initiated by others. The icing on the cake occurred when I was on my way home and a little boy of about 7 or 8 was walking towards me pushing his bike. Without any prompting he looked up at me and said, “Hello”. When he caught up with his dad I heard him say, in a very pleased tone of voice, “That lady said my bike’s really nice.”
Thank you, Howard, for helping me to have such an enjoyable and satisfying morning.
Oh well done Anita, how fabulous! I look forward to being able to go the shops again. Soon, very soon, just can’t even shuffle at moment. I am really pleased for you and your courage! 🙂 You will be high for a week on that achievement! 🙂
Thanks for your kind words, Karen.
Take good care of yourself,
Karen, you are a true and brave warrior. We are all affected in different ways and we are all chipping away at our icebergs!
One day we will be beautiful butterflies, and also dear friend, we will have that game of hopscotch! Take care xx ?
Hi Cynthia, bless you for your lovely message! We WILL have that game of hopscotch my friend. It was my birthday in May and for it I got my sister to chauffeur me and help me walk to get my passport application sorted as it expired that month. Everyone thought me mad and were asking where was I going. I explained I want to be ready to fly to UK to see my other siblings who have been AMAZING support to me on this journey. So I am ready for full recovery! This butterfly has not long left in her cocoon 🙂 Big Love to you friend. What part of the UK you in? Karen xx
Near Bristol xx
I lived in Bristol for 6 months many many moons ago. 🙂
This is wonderful Anita.Well done! You have described it beautifully!
Thank you Christine. I am feeling very blessed to have found Howard and all you blog followers. What an amazing support group this is.
Thanks, Howard & companion Warriors, for the re-motivation to do the Recipe. Doing something toward recovery negates the ‘doing nothing’ of the Western medicine approach. My best is good enough, not pushing myself, yet gradually increasing the daily portion/frequency of Recipe.
Thanks, Howard, for that post’s gentle splash of cold water, bringing me to my senses as to importance of Recipe.
Studying & doing Recipe-in-Depth is very helpful.
Whenever I get afraid of my symptoms – I just begin to reread Howard’s words to us.
Thank you Howard for all the hope and love you give out.
Blessings and health
Right on Tom! Reading this post is a splash of cold, refreshing water that encouraged me to double my efforts to do the recipe. I also advise everyone to do what Barbara does, read and reread the post and comments when you’re down. Go back thru the archives to scoop up every bit of wisdom Howard has so graciously shared with us.
Thank you Howard, and God bless you!!!
