Fighting Parkinson’s, and inspiration for the kick-off of my 30-day challenge 2018

IT IS HERE!!! Today is the kick-off of my 30-day November to Remember, No Excuses November, Challenge 2018! 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.

Jan – UK says:

I found Howard in August and tested out the 30 day challenge – I now try and follow the full “recipe” for at least 1 hour a day and will be signing up for coaching very soon. The website and blog are an incredible resource, and fellow travellers give love and encouragement. Don’t hesitate – give it a go if you are new to the recipe – renew your commitment if you are already on the road. It can be life transforming. Howard – thank you yet again for your kindness and belief – and for helping us to “fight the foe!” Jan UK


Lohren Christie says:

Thanks Howard for your generosity! All of your recommendations are so relevant and healing. I find it helps to “know” that you are already healed, to realize that we need nothing and that we can do it. The subconscious controls me and doesn’t know the difference between what is “real” and what is not! So coming from the standpoint that we already have healing is the focus.

Love to all,


Tery and Werni says:

Howard, with a big heart, tireless to help and support us!! We experience it again with today‘s blog!!! We can‘t find very often human beings like you, Howard, in our ‘money-thinking-world’‚ we only can say: THANK YOU!


Chris Meyer says:

All –

This is a wonderfully comprehensive set of materials. It’s so rich it may seem daunting at first blush. Just pick up on the simple theme Howard weaves throughout:
1. Take and use what you can.
2. Do your best.
3. That’s good enough.

Best wishes to everyone,
Chris Meyer


Berni says:

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2016 given a recommendation for medication and told to read about it on the internet! Finding this site was like a breath of fresh air after so many others fixated on symptoms and medications. I have always believed that the body can heal itself and here was proof.

Within a couple of months of starting the Recipe I regained my sense of smell and other improvements have followed such as being able to shower myself again and all without medication.

I would say to anyone new give it a try what’s a month out of your life? Don’t worry about being able to perform the Qigong perfectly. Your best is all that’s necessary.

To all the ‘regulars’ I wish you a Happy November !


We are all worthy and deserving of a full recovery

For further inspiration, Click Here to see the picture gallery we have started. These are the New Faces of Parkinson’s!

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. Tony 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,

  1. Johnny L Woodruff says:

    Thank you, Howard, and to all my fellow warriors in this battle for recovery. These encouraging words are much needed, today in particular. I took on the 30 day challenge July 4 of this year and am still on track. Press on, brave comrades . . . press on!

  2. Paul says:

    Dear Howard
    You give the best of all things you are giving hope when no one else does
    You make me believe and with that belief I now have it too
    I’m feeling better daily and my symptoms are going

    For me this site is my bible
    I accept your challenge with thanks

  3. Tery and Werni says:

    We agree with Paul too, it‘s worth to accept this challenge! Thanks to the Recipe and the wonderful support of Howard the life of Werni is drugfree, impossible in the eyes of neurologists, but it‘s true. Howard, you are the best!!

  4. Chris Meyer says:

    I just thank my lucky stars that my Parkinsons came complete with an escape ladder. I don’t know how these things just seem to work out in life, I’m just grateful. Thanks Howard.

    Doing very well on the recipe in Wisconsin,

    Chris Meyer

    PS: The picture gallery is really neat too – what a fun looking bunch of people!

  5. Melanie S says:

    After several years on this slow path of self transformation I re-commit to heal myself. This boost and renewal is necessary to reawaken hope when the path is long and hard.
    Time to post my picture in the gallery so you can see how well I’m doing.
    Gratitude to our teacher Howard

  6. Dave M says:

    I’m a little late but I’m up for the challenge. I’ve been doing well with the exercises for the morning and afternoon but I have becom lax in the evening. I will change that….. I am worth it.

  7. Marie says:

    For me every November is “November to Remember” with a heart full of gratitude since one of Howard’s first November challenges prompted me to evaluate where I was after following the Recipe for Recovery for 9 months and realized that I no longer had symptoms and did not feel the need to accept the 30 day challenge.

    As one of Howard’s “graduates” with full recovery, I add my voice to encourage you all on this beautiful path that Howard created to guide us to healing on every level.

    Sending love and best wishes,

  8. Betty says:

    I began the recipe on November 1st 2018. I am fully committed to taking it to the end. I am gifted with a wonderful husband who supports me by doing the recipe with me and giving me hope on my not so good days. I have faith that I will heal this disease along with all of the emotional baggage that caused it. Thankyou Howard for sharing your journey with the world.
