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 23, 2009 journal entry, seven years ago today.
“10/23/09. Up at 4. Still slow from interesting previous couple of days. I slept through Wednesday and skipped my Qigong on Thursday as I wanted to give my body a little time to recuperate.”
As you can see, I had two days in a row where I did not do the physical part of the Recipe, and I was not fearful that it would have any negative impact on my recovery.
Please remember these things about the Recipe:
The body. The physical part of the Recipe heals your organs.
The mind. The mental part of the Recipe calms the mind. This will lead to improvement of symptoms.
The soul. The spiritual part of the Recipe opens the natural dopamine flow. This will lead to finishing your full recovery.
Since Parkinson’s is packaged in Western Medicine as being all about symptoms management, please know that your best opportunity in doing the Recipe and having some symptoms management along the way IS NOT FROM EXERCISING…IT IS FROM GETTING CONTROL OF YOUR MIND AND CALMING YOUR MIND!

You are worth it!!!
All my best,
Please note: I will be posting one post per day through the middle of November. If you subscribe to receive email notifications when I post new blog posts and you would prefer to not receive those daily email notifications, simply send me an email at email@example.com, and let me know that you do not wish to receive a daily email with a link to each post. I will remove you from the list through the middle of November and add you back on the list after the middle of November. However, I still would recommend you checking the blog on a regular basis as it will contain very useful information for understanding my journey and helping with your journey.
