Seven years ago, I began doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. Of course, back then it did not have a name…it was just what I was doing. At the same time, I began keeping a hand-written Parkinson’s Daily Journal. It is time to share my journal with all of you. Here is my October 16, 2009 journal entry, seven years ago today.
“10/16/09. Up at 4…slow, slow, slow, oh, well. Happy 21st Anniversary!
The nicest thing happened. Victoria, even though she realized she would be alone at home, insisted that Sally and I go out to dinner for our anniversary. We are going to Pho Quyen for Noodles/Noodle Bowls, whatever. Happy Anniversary.
Sally and I did not go to Pho Quyen. The weather was really bad. We went to a new place on Gandy called Luigi’s. It was wonderful and we had a happy anniversary dinner out.
Quite frankly, if all I did for our anniversary was sit on the couch and hold Sally’s hand, I would be very happy.”
Happy Anniversary, Sally…28 years! A lot has changed over these last seven years since I wrote this journal entry. For those of you who have been reading these daily journal entries, in the last seven years many, many things have changed.
I am cured of Parkinson’s since June 12, 2010 doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. My lack of signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s twice has been confirmed by my neurologist in my medical records, the same neurologist who diagnosed me and confirmed the diagnosis.
Steven, who was starting college, graduated from college and is married.
Genevieve, who was a high school junior, has graduated from college and is married.
Victoria, who was a 12-year-old middle schooler, now is a college sophomore studying animation.
Sally, well, she is Sally, a beautiful, radiant soul, the love of my love. (Okay, some things are pretty consistent).
Okay, that’s my family in a nutshell. Since you have been reading about them every day, I thought I would bring you up to date.
Now, how about all of you in the last seven years?
Marie, cured of Parkinson’s in 2011 doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®.
Pratima, cured of Parkinson’s 2012 doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. Passed away in 2016.
Betty, cured of Parkinson’s in 2013 doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®.
Helen, cured of Parkinson’s in 2015 doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®.
Hundreds of you slowing, halting and reversing your Parkinson’s doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®.
And, the only scientific study that has measured actual dopamine in living people who have Parkinson’s Disease concluded that the dopamine is not depleted, but is blocked, just I have been saying for seven years in the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. Click here to read the study.
Finally, what seven years has shown is that one recovery program has been proven to cure Parkinson’s Disease in five people, and has been proven to slow, halt, and reverse Parkinson’s Disease is hundreds of people, and it is the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. And what is so wonderful about that is that you are doing this program, the soul, mind, and body healing program known as the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®.
So, my friends, as Sally and I celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary with each other today, we also celebrate each and every one of you. We know what it takes to have the faith, the attitude, take the action, and know that there is progress even if it looks like two-steps-forward-one-step-backwards progress. We laugh with you, we cry with you, we love you.
Please take our lead and love yourselves.
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
