Fighting Parkinson’s, and Parkinson’s is not a life sentence

When you received the diagnosis that you had Parkinson’s, you also were told it was incurable. Essentially, you were sentenced to a life sentence of Parkinson’s. You were sentenced to a progressively degenerative disease. You were sentenced to never getting better or staying the same, but only getting worse. Today’s question is rather simple: Do you accept the life sentence or do you appeal it to a higher authority?

I would imagine that if you are here and reading this blog, then you are not only appealing the Parkinson’s life sentence to a higher authority, but you are also doing everything possible to overturn the life sentence. Good for you!

Faith. Attitude. Action. Progress. Overturning the Life Sentence. That is the formula to your cure.

Faith. Sometimes it is difficult to keep faith alive, particularly on those days where you feel like a prisoner in your own body. You know the days, when walking is hard and eating is hard, and extreme slowness, stiffness, and tremors are the flavors of the day. This is where faith is critical. Without faith, you throw in the towel, go back in your prison cell and shut the door, and serve out your Parkinson’s life sentence in misery. Faith says, “It doesn’t have to be that way.” If you are struggling with faith, please click here.

Attitude. Sometimes it is difficult to have a positive attitude, particularly on those days where you feel like a prisoner in your own body. You know the days, when walking is hard and eating is hard, and extreme slowness, stiffness, and tremors are the flavors of the day. This is where a positive attitude is critical. Without a positive attitude, you throw in the towel, go back in your prison cell and shut the door, and serve out your Parkinson’s life sentence in misery. A positive attitude says, “I can do this and cure myself.” If you are struggling with keeping a positive attitude, please click here.

Action. Sometimes it is difficult to take action, particularly on those days where you feel like a prisoner in your own body. You know the days, when walking is hard and eating is hard, and extreme slowness, stiffness, and tremors are the flavors of the day. This is where taking action is critical. Without taking action, you throw in the towel, go back in your prison cell and shut the door, and serve out your Parkinson’s life sentence in misery. Taking action says, “I am doing my best, and my best is good enough.” If you are struggling with taking action, please click here.

Progress. Every day you are taking action and doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® with faith in your cure and a “can do” attitude about being your own cure, you are making progress. Progress is not determined by what your symptoms look like. You are so much more than a set of Parkinson’s symptoms, so please do not define yourself or allow others to define you by how much you are shaking on a particular day. That shaking is not YOU! If you are struggling with understanding the progress you are making in your recovery, please click here.

Overturning the Life Sentence. When appealing to a higher authority in a court of law, they want to know what is the precedent for overturning the sentence. Here is your precedent:
I did the Recipe and I am cured.
Marie did the Recipe and she is cured.
Pratima did the Recipe and she is cured.
Betty did the Recipe and she is cured.
Helen did the Recipe and she is cured.
Tony did the Recipe and he is cured.

On the day you received your diagnosis and life sentence of Parkinson’s, you were not doing the Recipe. However, you are doing the Recipe now. Your faith is strong, you have a “can do” attitude, you are taking action, and you are seeing progress. You are worthy and deserving of overturning your Parkinson’s life sentence. You have the power to cure yourself, and you are.

Faith. Attitude. Action. Progress. Overturning the Life Sentence. You can do this!

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

So hammer away dear soul…I’m slowly, month by month, feeling stronger, wiser and more accepting of myself and always grateful for your coaching and the consistency and wisdom of your support.

    It’s all about getting that dopamine to flow and Howard points out these main factors in which dopamine will naturally flow once your dopamine finds a way to flow on its own again you are cured. It’s as simple as that do the work, have the faith, get the Cure. God bless Howard and all the Warriors
