Fighting Parkinson’s, and there is nothing wrong with you, part 4

As discussed in parts 1, 2, and 3 in my previous posts, there is nothing wrong with you in your essence. Today, we take an even bigger step to eliminate negative emotions and self-criticism in furtherance of your full recovery.

When you express negative emotions, self-judgment, and self-criticism, you are harming yourself. Emotional stress, anger, frustration, and resentment negatively impact your liver. Fear, worry, and anxiety negatively impact your kidneys.

Self-judgment and self-criticism are nothing more than repeating somebody else’s words against yourself. They make you feel unworthy and not deserving; they interfere with self-love and being kind and compassionate to yourself.

If you have not read the three previous posts, this would be a good time to read them. The theme that there is nothing wrong with you delivers one simple conclusion:


As you can see from the explanations above, when you exhibit negative emotions, you hurt yourself, and when you judge and criticize yourself, you are being cruel to yourself. It is time to stop the cruelty and to stop hurting yourself.

Here is the formula, in affirmation form:

Anger hurts me.
I am a precious being.
I am choosing to no longer hurt myself.
I am letting go anger.

When a negative emotion, a self-judgment, or a self-criticism appears, put it into this formula, essentially substituting it for “anger” in the example above.


Do the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® and know that you are a precious being.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,


Final Note: Today is Sally’s mother’s, Nancy Ward’s, 85th birthday. Happy Birthday Mother. You are a precious being!!!

    Thank you Howard for this jem in my inbox this morning. Even though I know how devastating negative emotions are I do slip back to old habits from time to time so reminders are much appreciated. I also like what you say “Self-judgment and self-criticism are nothing more than repeating somebody else’s words against yourself” that is so true, I’ve never looked at it that way.
    My precious mom Mary just turned 85 Mar 3rd !
    Continued blessings to you Sally and family!

    Howard –

    You write so clearly and understandably that I can only imagine that at some point it just goes ‘CLICK’ and everything falls into place.

    Thanks for rolling the tumblers of our minds over and over by presenting things from so many different angles til the right combination for each of us lines up.

    This blog was particularly helpful for me.

    Your patience and purseverance are much appreciated.

    With gratitude for all our mothers,

    Chris in Wisconsin

      Good news, bad news…

      Bad news: I’m perpetuating my own Parkinsons Disease!

      Good news: if l’m the one perpetuating my PD, then I must be in a great position to do something about it!!!

    Wonderful, simple and powerful.
    Thank you Howard
    For anyone new, insist with these new affirmations, I think they really are the key to change, and change we must.
    I am printing them all out to work on.

    Wonderful thinking Howard. So true! If we have 70,000 thoughts every day, (a true statement) we must stay vigilant and turn the negative ones around. It’s so easy to go unmindful and find ourselves involved in self hate. Practice, practice, practice until loving ourselves is at the top of our list! By the way, gratitude for our new selves, our new way of being is also at the top!!

    Love and light, Lohren
