Fighting Parkinson’s, and re-focusing your viewpoint

The current medical profession view and the view of most people not reading this blog is that Parkinson’s is a progressively degenerative neurological disease where they do not know the cause and for which there is no cure. The current medical profession view and the view of most people not reading this blog is that “how good you are doing” is determined 100% by how your physical symptoms look. If you are viewing Parkinson’s through these same lenses, it is time to re-focus your view.

The Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® view is that we do know the causes, the Recipe is a cure, and that even though you may look worse while doing the Recipe, you are getting better.

I have written before that this is a race won by the tortoise, not the hare. Here’s another look to help you re-focus your view.

The hare follows the current medical view. He runs the race like he is on performance enhancing drugs…he runs here, there, on the path, off the path, takes a nap, doesn’t see the flowers, doesn’t smell the coffee. However, even though he moves fast and looks good, he NEVER finishes the race and he NEVER reaches recovery.

The tortoise moves slowly by following the Recipe, thus conserving energy that can be utilized for healing. The tortoise moves slowly, and by moving slowly, he notices more things, good and bad, so he has to decide: “Do I stare at my tremors or do I stare at the pretty flowers.”

The tortoise moves slowly, so he has the choice to be frustrated by his slowness or to accept what the Universe is offering.

The tortoise moves slowly, so he has time in each thing he does to be with his Higher Power to give him the faith and hope and perseverance to take the next laborious step…and his does it with GRATITUDE…because he is grateful for life, even life in a tortoise shell.

With correctly focused lenses, the tortoise decides, “I have the power to heal myself. I will win the race. My faith is stronger than other people’s opinions of what I should be doing about my Parkinson’s. I am recovery! I am worth it!!!”

It is time to re-focus your view of Parkinson’s and see it through the eyes of the tortoise…slow and steady, compassionate and grateful, knowing that if you stay on the path toward full recovery with faith and perseverance, full recovery is at your Parkinson’s finish line.

Along the way, you re-focus your understanding that the journey you are on is life, and Parkinson’s is just a hurdle to get beyond…and your heart opens to the liberation of this understanding, and your dopamine flows…you are recovery.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

    Wow! 30 warriors came out to play with me. Joy Joy Joy!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    To me this affirmation list is like a golden scroll that we all signed, to present to the universe, of our intention to heal, written with absolute confidence and as one!
    Please please keep our list going until Howard’s next post. A special thank you to warriors who had the courage to post for the first time. You ROCK!
    It is scary to post for the first time, as you can feel a bit vulnerable in new territory. I hope all warriors felt the Joy of making the affirmation to themselves, there is great power in the written word.
    Big love to you all and thank you again for coming out to play with me. Next time we are playing hopscotch!

    Dear Howard…I so appreciate the direction, clarity and wisdom this post provides…I continue to be grateful for your coaching as well as your generosity in making all the blog information fee free and, once again, I recommit to being the best possible tortoise this old gal can be.

  34. Pat in FL says:

    I am winning the race.
    So great to see how many tortoises are following Howard’s proven strategy! Two things he said popped out at me as concepts I want to remember –
    *The tortoise moves slowly by following the Recipe, thus conserving energy that can be utilized for healing.

    *The tortoise moves slowly, so he has time in each thing he does to be with his Higher Power to give him the faith and hope and perseverance to take the next laborious step…and he does it with GRATITUDE…because he is grateful for life, even life in a tortoise shell.

    Working to leave no room for negative thoughts or fears in my mind. Slowness helps me win the battle, and ultimately the race!
    Thank you Howard for this short but power packed post.

    And thanks Karen for getting so many to comment 👍🏼
    Love 💗 to all

  35. Caroline Cowan says:

    I am winning this race!
    Every day I get closer to the winning post!
    Karen I watched my husbands 8 year old grand daughter playing hopscotch the other day. It looks quite easy to do.
    She then went on to doing back flips and the splits. I think it inadvisable for us to take it that far!

    • Karen in Ireland says:

      Hi Christine, your post made me laugh. Oh the joy though, just to be able to play a simple game of hopscotch. You won’t believe me when I tell you this but I have kept my favourite hopscotch stone from my childhood lol. I’m 54 in May!
      Warriors, an absolute joy to hear from so many of you. Truly! There are weeks I read the blog and there is only a few posts and I feel I’m battling alone, so it was fabulous to know there was over 40 warriors there with me this week! It gave me the courage to stop one of my last meds. If I can conquer this one, I’m only left with a half tablet of my last med. Scary but empowering! So thank you to each and every one who posted. You ROCK! Big love as always, Karen xx

  40. Berni says:

    Well done Karen for starting this thread, I have started burning a candle when I do my Qigong which represents all my feĺlow warriors. It helps me feel connected.

    Also very weĺl done on the meds reduction. I have not taken meds but I understand it is very difficult, so give yourself a big hug!

    Berni x

  41. Christine says:

    Berni what a lovely idea to burn a candle. I will do this too. Karen well done with the meds. Makes me think maybe I can do it too!
    Love to you all.

  42. I will win this race.
