Lately, I have been hearing this, “On the days when my symptoms are worse, I become afraid that I am getting worse. How did you overcome that fear?” My response has been simple, “On the days when my symptoms were worse, I was not afraid.” Then I have been asked, “How is that possible?” My response is the basis of today’s post.
If you look at the physical part of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, there are two main elements. The liver Medical Qigong exercises are designed to heal the liver and clean toxins from the body. This results in increased energy in the body. The kidney Medical Qigong exercises, Brain Vibration Chanting, Near Hand Far Hand, etc. are designed to increase energy and elevate it to the brain for distribution to the body.
The physical part of the Recipe is designed to increase energy in the body. When energy is increased and it is able to break through blockages in the energy flows, tremors and other symptoms decrease. When energy is increased and it is not strong enough to break through blockages in the energy flows at that time, but instead is hitting the blockages repeatedly in its attempt to break them open, tremors and other symptoms increase.
Whether the symptoms were decreasing or increasing, it meant the same thing…I was being successful in generating more energy in my body for my recovery. That is why I gave gratitude for the increasing energy no matter what the symptoms exhibited; and I said, “This is part of my recovery” or “this is necessary for my recovery.” It is why I was not afraid.
Everything in the Recipe is designed for recovery of the soul, mind, and body. If you are doing the Recipe, you are recovering from Parkinson’s no matter how your symptoms appear. You do not need to be afraid.
How you progress in your recovery when faced with worse looking symptoms largely is dependent on the attitude you take when looking at symptoms. If you are determining good days and bad days by what your symptoms are doing, you are not understanding this recovery…if you are doing the Recipe, they all are good days.
In order to experience the symptoms at all, you have to be alive. That is a precious gift all in itself. So, when facing the symptoms, you need to realize that you are alive, you are working on your recovery, and you are overcoming the negative thoughts associated with what your symptoms are doing. And then, give gratitude to yourself for the hard work you are doing and give gratitude to your body for increasing your energy.

Please determine how you are doing in your recovery by how you are feeling about yourself and your life in your recovery. Accept yourself for the beautiful, courageous person that you are. You are saying to yourself and the world, “I have the power to heal myself…AND I AM HAVING MY FULL RECOVERY!!!”
Yes you are.
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
NOTE: We have started a picture gallery. So far, we have 38 pictures of people doing the Recipe or already fully recovered from Parkinson’s (plus some with their spouses or children). One thing you will see in this picture gallery is what I call the “New Faces of Parkinson’s;” people with big smiles filled with hope and faith about recovery. If you would like your picture included, please email it to me at
Click here to see the picture gallery. Also, the picture gallery is a permanent page on the website. On the computer view, it is under the blue picture at the top of each page, listed as “Picture Gallery.” On the mobile view, click the menu (near the top left of the mobile screen, there are three horizontal lines next to the “F” in Fighting). One of the menu choices says “Picture Gallery.”
