Fighting Parkinson’s, and you are abundant health

There are some of you whose symptoms have completely gone off of the charts to try to convince you that you are not worthy of your recovery. I have shared my feelings about this with you over this last week, and I am now going to express them to the group as these are things that everybody needs to know.

First. YOU ARE WORTHY!!! You are worthy and deserving of your full recovery no matter what your mind chatter says. Your self-judging, self-criticizing mind chatter amounts to nothing more than repeating to yourself what others in your life have said to you and about you. They are not your words, but they have become your feelings. Let them go…they do not belong to you and you do not need them.

Second. YOU ARE WORTHY!!! Toward the end of my full recovery, my symptoms went out of control as well. However, once I found love for myself and started giving gratitude each day for being alive with my soul in a human body, even a human body experiencing Parkinson’s symptoms, everything changed. After that, when somebody would ask how I was doing, I would respond, “I am doing great” because “I am” was describing my soul, my essence, my core, the “me” deep inside me that I could not describe, but could feel. That soul, that spark, that “uniquely me” is deeply inside all of you.

I was able to remove myself from the physical. Here is an “I am” to assist you in removing yourself from the physical. Feel the “I am” deeply in the essence of your being:


The seed of abundant health is deep inside all of you. It is part of the essence of who you are. Many successes and resulting rewards in life have come from intellectual achievements and attainments, not from feelings, so you started trusting your mind above your heart and soul, and thus you stopped nurturing your seed of abundant health.

Think about planting a seed in the garden. It may take weeks or months of nurturing the seed under the ground before it breaks the surface. But you marked the spot and you watered it every day or so, and you had faith that somewhere beneath the top soil your seed was going to grow into a plant. Imagine that…faith that something you could not see and could not feel, and in some ways did not understand, was getting nurtured and fertilized, and was eventually going to break the surface and grow into a plant.

This is the faith you need in yourself and in the recovery process of which you have embarked in doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. Faith that something you cannot see and may not feel, and in some ways do not understand, is getting nurtured and cleansed and strengthened, and will eventually break the surface and grow into a full recovery. I know you can do it. You need to know you can do it!

I have said many times that faith without action is meaningless for Parkinson’s recovery. Let’s look at the garden and compare tomato seeds. Within the tomato seed is the potential to grow and produce tomatoes. If you plant two seeds and nurture one with water, fertilizer, and sunlight, while ignoring the other one planted just ten feet away, what happens?

The nurtured plant puts down roots, breaks the surface, and eventually produces tomatoes for your enjoyment. The neglected seed lays dormant. So, two seeds with exactly the same potential have completely opposite results because one was nurtured and one was neglected.

Each and every one of you has abundant health deep in your core. However, you have to take action to have the realization of your potential. Doing the soul, mind, and body healing in the Recipe is taking positive action to activate your abundant health.

If you fail to nurture your seed of abundant health, it lays dormant and does not grow. If you nurture your seed of abundant health in your core, then it lays down strong roots, and it grows inside you. As it grows, it breaks through the physical and emotional toxins and helps you clean them from your body and your mind.

And, one day you wake up with the full realization that, yes indeed, you are abundant health, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I also call that experience full recovery from Parkinson’s.

Okay, now, each of you reach deep down inside to your core, and let’s chant together so the whole world feels it:


Yes you are.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

    Inspiring post Howard! Thank you

  2. Elaine says:

    Your insightful post always seem to come just when I need them. Thank you Howard.

  3. Zeljko says:

    So true Howard, let’s all ground ourselves in our souls and just be happy. PD doesn’t exist there.

  4. Tony says:

    You are absolutely correct Howard. When I would experience fear, anger, frustration, and sorrow, my symptoms would go through the roof. I too thought I was getting worse, but then when I was in a more calm state of mind, my symptoms would diminish. There were many days when I would just sit on the couch in my pajamas looking outside watching men come and go to work feeling so discouraged and like a loser until that one day when I stopped feeling sorry for myself and went back to the gym and back to dancing. You see my friends this disease is fueled by worry, anger, resentment, and doubt. All I can say is you are never going to get better being fearful sitting on the couch or laying in bed hoping that one day you will get better. Like Howard said, faith is useless without action! Live your life like there is nothing wrong with you, friends, because there isn’t! Love to you Howard and all my fellow Warriors.

    Thanks, Howard!

    My soul feasts upon your words. Today, “First” spoke the loudest to my soul.

    I discovered: Doing the Governing Vessel, GV2-20: …as a child, I broke my coccyx (tailbone) in a tobogganing accident and it was broken the second time in a home attack. I had been doing the Governing Vessel, GV2-20 from the top of the break where the coccyx bends in They didn’t fix the coccyx because they cannot or could not do it right. You just let it heal as is. I noticed the tremors from the waist down so I decided to do the GV2-20 on the healed break and below to the tip of the coccyx. To my delight, the tremors left. Also, during the foot holding thing on one foot, 3 spots of pain happened and the other foot had one spot of pain. I suspect body memories of various foot injuries while growing up on a farm. I held each foot it until the pains departed. I know that I am making improvements because the overall symptoms are diminishing.

    Love and hugs to all.

    Hi Howard and warriors, great post Howard. Faith like this also requires patience. We all do what we can each day with each component of the recipe, but we also know each of us is part of a bigger picture and therefore we also have to surrender and accept that our recovery will happen in the right time, space and sequence. If you want to give God a laugh, tell him your plans lol 🙂 . I believe I am perfect health, my physical body is catching up with aligning me with that truth and my soul gives me the strength and patience until mind, body and soul are meant to align completly. I hope that makes sense warriors. 🙂
    Big Love

  7. Love the wisdom spilling through these pages…thanks all. So very grateful you are my coach, Howard. With your heart-centered guidance, I increasingly invite fear to depart, making a lot more room for joy and celebration. Why not, eh?

  8. Waseema says:

    Thanks Howard for that really great post, right on time. I’ve been going through a dip recently where I have been feeling really sorry for myself and in complete victim mode and struggling to manage. It was lovely to hear the analogy of the tomato plant being nurtured and growing. Thanks for all the effort you make for us.
    Love and blessings to all

    It is interesting how we identify ourselves and others. When someone asks you if you know such and such a person, you might be inclined to say “is that the lady with MS?. Why do we identify people by their problems. Why do we not say for instance “yes I know her she is a lovely lady, I met her once “. So too we can identify ourselves with PD. But as we know deep down that is not our true nature. I think Howard is 100 percent correct. I have to constantly remind myself each day of my real identity because others keep referring to my problem when we meet. So one must not lose sight of the truth of our worthiness. Thank you again Howard for your constant love you share. Love to all

    Thanks, Howard, for the soul-activating words!
    Not nuts! nor in denial; (maybe a tiny bit), as “I am worthy” & “I am abundant health” take more and more hold of my soul’s real property, believing this is true.

    Thank you, Howard for this post. I just read it (Thursday night) after I had sent you an earlier email. It’s one I’m going to print and read everyday. It really lifted my spirit. I second all the comments that were made. Meredith
