Fighting Parkinson’s, and scientific study says brain cells may not be dead

Congratulations! It is November 15th, and you are half-way into my November to Remember, No Excuses November, 30-day Challenge 2019 to do the reduced version of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. For some added inspiration, a few days ago a scientific study reported some “unexpected” results: your brain cells may not be dead.

A couple of days ago I was sent an article about the scientific study, and yesterday, our friend Jimmy in Mexico asked me to share the same study with all of you…the word is getting out: “Unexpected Findings in Parkinson’s Research Show Cells May Not Be Dead.”

In short, here is what it says:

“Researchers with Rockefeller University discovered something completely unexpected—the affected neurons in Parkinson’s may not be dead. They found they may shut down without dying and these “undead neurons” release molecules that shut down neighboring brain cells, which leads to the common Parkinson’s symptoms.”

For ten years I have been saying that the brain cells are not dead and the dopamine is not depleted. Five years ago a scientific study out of Denmark confirmed that the dopamine is not depleted. Click here to learn more about that study. And now, a new study says the brain cells may not be dead, either.

This is fantastic news and I hope all of you are inspired. Of course, I would imagine that if you are reading this post and following this blog and doing the Recipe, you already had faith that your brain cells are alive and your dopamine is not depleted. Good for you!

However, now when family and friends are questioning what you are doing and say, “where’s the science?” you can say “right here.” The science says your brain cells may not be dead and your dopamine is not depleted. There’s the science!

Please send a link to this blog post to everybody you know, whether they have Parkinson’s or not, to share the wonderful news and to better educate them on the science supporting the Recipe and what you are doing for your recovery. Thank you.

Also, if you are doing the Recipe, the best things for awakening the sleeping brain cells and releasing your dopamine are Brain Vibration Chanting and the feelings of joy and gratitude. If you are doing the November Challenge, your gratitude list might contain 150 items already!

Okay, back to the November Challenge. Congratulations, you are half-way through the challenge. Smile, be grateful, and do your best today. Here is a bit more for inspiration.

If you are feeling good, you are making progress…good for you. If you are feeling poorly, you are making progress…good for you.

For those of you who are new to the blog, over time, those who have been here longer will tell you, “No matter what you tell Howard, if you are doing the Recipe, then he will tell you that you are making progress.” Truth of the matter is, if you are doing the Recipe, you are making progress!

When you are doing the Recipe, you are strengthening your liver to clean your blood better. The toxins enter your body and then are flushed out. However, when the toxins enter your body, you feel more tremors, more stiffness, more fatigue, and in general, it is hard to look at your situation and accept that you are making progress. Click here for a detailed explanation on how and why you are making progress.

You are half-way into this year’s November challenge, and if you have taken the challenge seriously, you have stayed off of the internet “looking” for an easier cure. There is no easier cure. This is “it,” and you are doing “it.” The first “it” being the Recipe, and the second “it” being that you are curing yourself from Parkinson’s.

The “experts” say there is no cure for Parkinson’s. If you want to be cured from Parkinson’s, then following the “experts” path will not get you cured from Parkinson’s.

If you want to be cured from Parkinson’s, then you need to realize that the Recipe is here for the doing, and that you need to be the doer…Parkinson’s is curable, and you are your own cure!

Make the commitment to cure yourself from Parkinson’s!

Okay, everybody, put big smiles on your faces and chant together so the whole world can hear:

“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!


All my best,

    Wow wow wow!
    I was feeling shakier and stiffer than usual this morning I prayed for a sign or encouragement and boy did I get it!!!! I read the entire blog including links and found new information I haven’t read before or read with new eyes. The blog about symptoms getting worse before we get better and the algae in the pond analogy spoke to me in particular.
    Yes we knew already our brain cells are not dead and our Dopamine is temporarily not flowing, thanks to you!
    Howard you are a Genius and I am so grateful for how you have led the way for all of us Yayyy!!!!
    We are worth it!

    I write today to affirm that the recipe is indeed most helpful in fighting Parkinson’s – I do it regularly. But I also suggest that attitude is also a major component in the healing.

    And where can you get a serious attitude boost?

    LOL, well right here on the blog and with Howard’s coaching!

    Hi Howard

    Great!!! Wonderful news we already knew but finally they start to research in a better way after letting down such a lot of poor patients with a big lie!!! Wonderful!!


  6. Marie says:

    Yes!. I love this! Researchers “discovered something completely unexpected”? Not unexpected HERE, where this knowledge has been central to the Recipe for Recovery™ from the beginning. Congratulations, Howard, on science confirming what you have saying all long! That must feel good.
    And for people who have doubts, or have friends or family who discourage their efforts thinking that what they are doing is useless, maybe this chipping away at previous scientific certitude about what Parkinson’s is will help to bolster confidence in the real possibility of recovery.

    Onward, warriors, to recovery!

  7. Roberta Crooks says:

    Wow, Yes, and all of the above!!!!! I have believed and thought that the dopamine was still there all along, even before I read your book or blogs. This is wonderful news that there is scientific proof now (2 times) that the dopamine did not die and go away. I had already stopped and improved my Parkinson’s symptoms by exercise (Rock Steady Boxing). I use to say and still do, that I need to get my dopamine going by exercising. It is still my go too when I need a boost. But the best thing ever is that now I know Parkinson’s can be cured, and that I am in recovery. Thank you Howard for that. You are the best.

    Fascinating article. Thanks for sharing Howard. I guess the working hypothesis is that our bodies are overworked and underperforming on the detox front allowing toxins two injure our neurons. The chi gong exercises gently detox the body and overtime neutrons recover. The body has to be in the parasympathetic mode for the healing to occur this is where the joy and peace comes in play.

    Marie thank you for posting on this forum. It is a source of encouragement for me and others.

    Wow! Parkinsons is curable. Started the recipe recently, I will recover soon.

    Thanks for sharing.
