Fighting Parkinson’s, and inspiration for the kick-off of my 30-day challenge 2015

IT IS HERE!!! Today is the kick-off of my 30-day November to Remember, No Excuses November, Challenge 2015! Click here to review the challenge. I am so excited about how many of you I have heard from who are making a commitment to yourselves to do the scaled-down version of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® for the 30 days of November. Congratulations to all of you on giving yourselves the gift of working on your Parkinson’s recovery. To kick-off the challenge, here is some inspiration.

In my previous post announcing the 30-day challenge, I encouraged those of you already doing the Recipe to share how you were doing to inspire the new people. Veterans to the Recipe and some new people taking on the challenge posted comments to that blog post. I share them with you here for inspiration to kick-off the challenge.

Hi Howard, fellow warriors and to all new people, Hi! Go on, have a go, nothing to lose and everything to gain. Not only will you be taking the first step on your new journey to recovery, but you are connecting each week to a community of great people who are walking the walk with you, with understanding, encouragement and compassion. Howard is truly amazing and it is uncanny how he always seems to know where we are all at. Congratulate yourself on finding the answer to your prayer when you found this site and your Recipe to Recovery.
Big love and welcome :-)

I love it brother! I’ve been hitting the recipe hard for 5 months now. I don’t look at it as a chore, it’s just a part of my day. I’m healing 24/7. I don’t look for the recovery anymore because I AM THE RECOVERY! Now that’s the best treat! Happy Halloween! lol

Hi Howard, hi to all new people!! Yes, Howard is the best!! My husband (he doesn’t speak English so I am his translater), profits enormous from the advices of dear Howard, who is available all the time to help us. Incredibly, how he manages all “his
people” around the world to support them in their daily problems but also in their joys and successes, as the result of the Recipe we can see! My husband started at the end of May 2015 and already has reduced his pills from 3 pills of 125mg daily to a half pill of 62,mg . That is from 375 mg daily to 62,5 mg!!!!! Monthly 11’250mg to now 1’875 mg, the difference is 9’375 mg LESS…so he feels much better and the whole body is working better. The face is looking wonderful, the head open, we fully believe in recovery!! After a long way of searching for the right way we met dear Howard, which truly is a wonderful and trustworthy person we can recommend best!! Give the Recipe a try and you will be very happy to have started with it!! With the very generous offer of Howard to the new people (thanks Howard, so kind) you should give the Recipe a try, it’s worth doing it!! Love and hugs, Tery and Werni

Hi Howard and Everyone,
I am happily up to the challenge. Thanks Howard.
I believe that Parkinson’s is curable and I am my own Parkinson cure. I am grateful that I have found this web site. I am grateful for the knowledge, support and blessing it has been, and continues to be in my life.
There are a couple of things that standout in my mind as I accept this challenge.

First: This “Recipe for Recovery” works. I have had the privilege of meeting Howard in person. He is the real deal. He had Parkinson’s and now he has recovered. He has remained symptom free since 2010. He is a knowledgeable, caring person who is willing to share what he did to recover. He gives freely of his time and energy just to help others. I am grateful for all he does for me . He has Recovered and so I can Recover also.

Second: This “Recipe for Recovery” is doable by anyone. It doesn’t matter where I live, how much money I have, my status in life, how old I am, my religion, how long I have had Parkinson, what I was doing for it in the past, or my symptoms. This “Recipe for Recovery” is doable right now. Howard is here to help me help myself. He has Recovered and so I can Recover also.

I am ready and willing to accept this challenge. I know that I will be the one that benefits from my efforts. I will do my best, knowing that my best is good enough.
I believe that Parkinson’s is curable.
I am my own Parkinson’s cure.
I am Recovery.

Howard, thank you for putting so much time and energy into making this challenge so clear and doable. I am grateful to you. I am also grateful for other fellow travelers who share of themselves and allow me to express my feelings with them.

Sending love and blessings to all,
From one who is loving life and grateful for it :-)

Hello to all my colleagues and those who are new ….. I say that no longer seek more ……. here we are looking for those who want to heal break paradigms, and who believe that Parkinson’s is curable beyond what that medical science says. God has brought us here to this site with Howard wonderful person that personally has always been attentive in helping me and unselfishly helping our entire community, he is an example to follow. I thank God to have found this site but above all things to have contact with a human being as Howard, who taught us what it really means the word “transformation” of our mind.
I left behind the fear. and I’ve already started my journey on the path of healing THROUGH the recipe. thanks to all my colleagues and their comments as valuable of which I have learned a lot, thanks HOWARD

I have been doing the recipe now consistently for 2 1/2 years and will continue until I am fully recovered. I have faith in the recipe and in the knowledge that I can recover! I am making progress every single day! Thank you Howard for your Love and support and for constantly being there for each of us! I am so grateful For the Skype sessions and for your determination to do whatever you can to see each of us recover too! You and four others
have proven it is possible! I recommit myself to continue until I am fully recovered.

I found Howard’s website in July this year. My initial thought was, “this can’t be for real” but I soon realised it was! Fortunately I found Howard before the “official” confirmation that I have Parkinson’s and before the request from the neurologist to my family doctor to start prescribing me medication: Howard and the group give me confidence to remain drugfree. I built up my practice of the Recipe bit by bit and I now do the full morning quota. I shall use this challenge to inspire me to do the evening quota too. Doing the Recipe has made an enormous difference to my energy levels and general feeling of wellness and I’m living a much fuller life than I was a few months ago. My partner and my sons also have confidence in the Recipe because they can see how much better I am. The support of Howard and the group is amazing, On the odd day I’m feeling down and sad about the things I can’t do at the moment, I visualise myself in a room with Howard and all these other lovely people: they’ve all become so real to me that I know the sorts of things they’d say to me to buoy me up and that really helps me find my way back to a positive frame of mind.

I really love Howard’s approach of encouraging people who are new to this to just “give it a go” for 30 days. You’ve nothing to lose and a lot to gain. If you need encouragement, just post comments on the blog as to how you’re getting on and you’ll find people will be cheering you on!

And, as ever, thank you for this post, Howard.

Thank you Howard. Yee ha! ?❤️ I commit to the 30 day challenge for November. To recovery. Thank you I am so grateful for your help and confidence and my confidence in healing. Yay!!

Let’s all have fun with it!!

We are all blessed to have this recipie for recovery that Howard has put together and recovered from Parkinson’s. As well as the others who have recovered doing the recipie. It has helped me enormously and given me support and confidence to recover. I feel so much more relaxed and I know it’s possible to recover. He did and we can bit by bit heal. You are worth it. We are worth it. We all support one another here. You are not alone. Big love to you Helen


Tom got so fired up, he got a three-day jump on the rest of you…

Day 3 of November Challenge
modified Recipe for Recovery,-
I have the power to heal myself.
Doing what I can,
my best is good enough.
Because I am, I am worth it.
I am recovery.
Thank You, everyone, slow and easy,
Tomorrow is Day 4…


And, Mary, somebody new who is wanting to take the challenge, shared her struggles with us all.

Mary says:
October 28, 2015 at 7:27 pm

Hi Howard, thank you thank you thank you I am accepting the challenge. I will start doing the shortened version I’ll let everybody know how I’m doing. I have not started it because I hate hate hate any kind any form of exercise I am an active person I do a lot of stuff . Howard what am I supposed to do I also hate meditating it is just so boring to me you can’t imagine. I love my life, I love my family, I love myself , I love my three chihuahuas. I love doing things that I am doing now. However I am getting worse. again thank you Mary


Here is my response to her.

Howard says:
October 29, 2015 at 7:54 am

To Mary (and this probably applies to others as well), you say you hate exercise and meditation, finding meditation boring. However, you also say, “I love my life, I love my family, I love myself , I love my three chihuahuas.”

The Recipe is a soul, mind, and body recovery. First you heal the soul, and the mind and the body will follow. Healing the soul has a lot to do with how you feel about yourself. Here is my recommendation: Channel the love for your life, the love for your family, the love yourself , and the love for your three chihuahuas, and fully embrace yourself to know that you are worthy and deserving of a Parkinson’s recovery. Then, utilize that LOVE and ACCEPTANCE of yourself to motivate you to do the things that will keep you on the path to your recovery…the exercises and the meditation. Instead of doing them even though you hate them, do them because you love you! You are worth it!

With love, gratitude and blessings,


As you can see from these comments, you are not your Parkinson’s symptoms…you are something more than symptoms…you are the loving, beautiful, caring, grateful essence of who you are. The symptoms may go up and down, but you remain strong, solid, and ready to cure yourself from Parkinson’s. Some of the people who posted these comments are just a bit ahead of you on this path toward recovery, and some of them are just like you getting started right now. They are committed to curing themselves from Parkinson’s!

Now it is your turn. Jump in with both feet! Accept the challenge…make the commitment to yourself…grab onto the scaled-down version of the Recipe…make this your November to Remember for your Parkinson’s recovery. And, if you have been doing the Recipe already, re-commit yourself, challenge yourself…make this your November to Remember for your Parkinson’s recovery.

One more bit of inspiration:

Some people may say that it is impossible to recover from Parkinson’s. To them, let’s say:

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!” Audrey Hepburn

“I have the power to heal myself.” And I did.
“You have the power to heal yourself.” Marie did. Pratima did. Betty did. And you are.
“Together we have the power to heal the world.” Every time another person starts down this path to recovery, together we are growing in numbers and we do have the power to heal the world from Parkinson’s.

Make the commitment to yourself for recovery!

Okay, everybody, put big smiles on your faces and chant together so the whole world can hear us kick off the best November to Remember ever:

“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!
I’m possible!


All my best,

    Let’s Go guys! Let’s ROCK!
    Big Love to all Warriors old and New! :-)

  2. ken says:

    For those of you who are sceptical let me assure you that Howard is the real deal.
    He seems to always be there when I need help. Nobody can be that caring and not
    be authentic.

    Five years ago tomorrow I was diagnosed and the neurologist started me out on
    2 tablets, 3 times daily of levocarbidopa 100/25 and azilect 1 mg. I don’t know where
    I would be today if I had of stuck to that regiment.

    Because of Howard and this blog I have been drug free for approx.3 years (can’t
    remember exact date)

    I still have bad days along with the good but I am still going to work on the
    recipe until Recovery. I have the power to heal myself, I have the power
    within me.

  3. Susana L says:

    Dear Kind Friends,
    I have been doing the full recipe for 16 months every day.I do it with love and the knowledge that I am healing myself, loving myself, and curing myself. I do not take any medication. I feel better every single day. Howard is a glistening gem who has so generously offered all of us a way to heal ourselves. You have the power to heal yourself and you can do it. Take the challenge and give yourself a chance to love yourself and heal yourself. Without this healing recipe I do not know where I would be today. I know that I am getting well every single day. View the recipe as you taking action to care for yourself and heal yourself imbibing your own soul and your mind and your body love elixir. The recipe is radiant and it works! We’re all here to support you in your journeys. With lots of love , Susana

    I don’t know why anyone would not want to at least try the recipe. It’s not like we have options: do western medicine, get worse: do nothing, get worse: do the Recipe, get better!
    I am skeptical/cynical by nature. When i found the Recipe i immediately began looking for the hidden agenda, or someone wanting my money for something. There is no hidden agenda. The Recipe is totally free! Howard is the real deal. I’ve had the pleasure and honor of meeting him and his lovely wife at a workshop. They are a God-send. Howard is a kind, gentle soul: giving, always available, I’ve communicated with him many times, e-mail and phone!
    The Recipe is for real. Nothing to lose by giving it a try. Howard is always there, encouraging, strengthening, loving.
    Doing the Recipe put excitement and hope back into my life. Can’t thank Howard enough. And, Sally.

  5. Deb Car says:

    Thank you Howard!
    For Your belief! for your Recovery and for the community you have gathered to support. When I was diagnosed 6 months ago I knew that I could and would fight this and now I know I can recover. These symptoms are just a sign of an imbalance. My body mind spirit need attention which I am now giving with the brighter light since finding you and your community.
    Hi Everyone!

  6. caterina geuer says:

    I found myself looking forward to your annual November Challenge Howard–I commit myself to do the Recipe every day this month. Lots of love to you and Sally and your family–lots of love to everyone else who is dedicated to healing from Parkinsons. Feeling full of gratitude and energy!

  7. Pat in Florida says:

    So many wonderful endorsements and personal testimonies that explain why the Recipe for Recovery is the best option for fighting Parkinson’s. Here’s what I’d like to add.

    Each person is more than a body. The Recipe addresses each dimension – physical, mental, and spiritual. There is healing needed in each level. Typically Western medicine tends to address only the physical, and without success beyond temporary symptomatic relief. In doing so, the PD person is disheartened by the message that there is no cure and there is no rational reason to hope.

    But here there is a succinct plan that teaches people how to heal each dimension. It’s a daunting task, but Howard’s plan patiently works with each of us, as individuals, to renew our minds and open our hearts to embrace mighty truths about ourselves. In doing so we are trained to abandon negative/fearful thoughts and replace them with love, compassion, forgiveness, faith and confidence. This CAN be done! This HAS been done!

    I was diagnosed 10 years ago, accepted Parkinson’s medication approximately six years ago, started doing the Recipe about three years ago and gradually eliminated traditional Parkinson’s medications – I think it’s been at least two years. (I don’t journal so I’m not sure of the exact time frame.) Although it hasn’t been easy, I do not regret the path I’ve taken. I believe the path will end in freedom and a new way of living!
    And that is worth the work it takes, the discipline it takes and the time it takes.

    I encourage you to accept the November to Remember challenge! It’s a great way to get started. And here you will receive acceptance and love.

  8. Tery Brun says:

    Hi all together

    First, dear Howard, thank you so much for your effort and work, it’s terrifically!!!
    Again, I can assure you that it’s really worth doing the Recipe, as today my dear Werni
    could speak again as in old days, faster and with a wonderful voice I was used to in earlier days!!! We are so happy!!! Till now sometimes we couldn’t understand him well when he was talking and too very slowly and with a weak voice. Yeahhhh, it works, I recommend the Recipe best and dear Howard is a wonderful person with power, love and kindness we never experienced with neurologists. Give it a try and you will be surprised!! Our gratitude to Howard and his lovely Sally is enormous!! Thanks Howard!!
    Love and courage to all,

    Tery and Werni

  9. Helen says:

    Thank you Howard and everyone this is exciting we are all together in this November challenge. I look forward to the improvement day by day. I so appreciate all your comments and of course Howard’s guiding direction and truth and love. Yeeha!! Love Helen

  10. Waseema from Birmingham UK says:

    Hi fellow warriors,

    I’m committed to doing the recipe for as long as it takes. I was diagnosed over four years ago and have not taken any medication at all. I have to thank Howard for his inspiring blog which supported me to persevere with a drug free approach. I sometimes struggle to be regular but have always felt the benefit when I do persist. Keep going everyone…. we know it works!

  11. Christine (UK) says:

    I am new to posting on the site but have been following the Recipe for a year and have found the advice from Howard and all my fellow warriors so helpful and inspiring. I have occasionally missed days and rarely done the evening exercises so “I’m in on the November challenge” and commit to FULLY doing the recipe every day. I wanted to share with you a free meditation tape that I have recently found on line and which helps me to relax and feel calm. The web address is

  12. Debbie says:

    Thank you to Howard and to each of you who have had the courage to share of yourselves by leaving such beautiful messages. They are so uplifting. They are helping me along on this journey. I am grateful.
    As I start this November Challenge with all of you, I am reminded of a little saying I once read.

    If you just want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone!
    But if you want to Walk Far, Walk Together!

    Together, with love, we will help each other over the finish line.

    Parkinson’s is curable and I am my own Parkinson’s cure!

    Love and Blessings

    • Tom says:

      Thank you, Far Walking Fellow Warriors,
      I well up at the compassionate words and empowering outpouring of this community’s testimonies.
      Thank you for inspiring me to “walk the talk” together with you.
      Each one of us knows “it don’t come easy…”
      Day 5
      Brain chanting a tad stronger…
      more ‘regular’
      I can do this ‘I’m possibility’!

  13. corazon salvador says:

    I am grateful first to GOD and to Howard that he was used mightily to give us hope in this
    fight of Parkinson

  14. Leena says:

    A big hello to every one of you. Howard is the Guru and so he is the doorway to the ultimate recovery. I have had the pleasure of meeting him and his wonderful wife Sally couple of months ago. I write this from the bottom of my heart that he is actually a Godly figure. He is wrapped in the skin of Howard for him to help, guide and encourage each one of us in this path of recovery.
    I am doing the full recipe for seven and a half months to be exact every single day and two times a day, I am drug free for the past 3 years. Howard’s recipe has given new meaning and hope to my life. I need to work on some public fears and attachment for which Howard is helping me. I hope to overcome this monster Parkinson’s some day.
    Thank you Howard from the deepest corner of my heart.

  15. mayarita says:

    Thank you for much needed encouragement. Still drug free, been doing recipe as much as able about 2 years. Discouraged by worsening symptoms but feel like I am uncovering myself and understanding the nature of the illness which feels like the key.

  16. Anita in England says:

    Thank you, Howard, for your advice to us as to how to turn things round when we’re struggling to do the exercises and meditation: “utilize that LOVE and ACCEPTANCE of yourself to motivate you to do the things that will keep you on the path to your recovery…the exercises and the meditation. Instead of doing them even though you hate them, do them because you love you! ” I’m finding this incredibly helpful – it’s becoming clearer in my mind and my heart that I am, indeed, doing this because I love me! And thank you, Mary, for prompting this message from Howard.

    Thank you, all of you, for your encouraging and inspiring messages. I’ve had contact with doctors over the last few days, which tends to make me feel unwell, so it’s a very good time to have taken up the challenge to do the full recipe, which is definitely helping me to achieve a better balance.

    Love and best wishes to you all.
