Fighting Parkinson’s, and inspiration for the kick-off of my 30-day challenge 2016

IT IS HERE!!! Today is the kick-off of my 30-day November to Remember, No Excuses November, Challenge 2016! 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.

Thank you Howard. I am in. I will do my best (armed with all this useful revision) and that is good enough.
We are worth putting ourselves first. I recommend this to all newcomers.

Thanks, Howard,

Don says that he is recommitting himself to do the full recipe and 30-day challenge 2016.

I heartily encourage newcomers to do this recipe. I see many nice improvements in my husband, Don. Some are subtle and some are more obvious. I see speech and balance improvements. I also see an increase in his ability to do things around the house and he lasts longer before he needs to rest. Don’s face and eyes look more animated and alive. Also, he is talking more like he did when he was well. It is worth the effort.

Don says that he feels more stable walking through the grass.

Karen and Don

I am doing most at least once per day however still struggling to do all the Recipe steps, but hereby commit to doing more. Thanks Howard for re-inspiring us all to do more and to do better to realize our dreams of conquering PD.


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. Helen 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,

    Oh and by the way my sleep is greatly improved I would say pretty normal now infact . Anxiety virtually disappeared. Bladder control and frequency much better. These are signs I am doing something right.
    Finding time for yourself and meditation are some of the most important aspects of the recipe for me.

  2. Lisa says:

    I have been working the recipe for 4 months, and am recommittted to the challenge, and increasing my times and exercises.
    I am worth it, and so are you! Let’s do this!
