Accepting you have Parkinson’s disease is the first step in fighting the disease. Acceptance goes something like this: “I accept that I have Parkinson’s Disease…what am I going to do about it to recover?”
The “what am I going to do about it to recover” is the difficult part because it presumes something that requires you to discard conventional protocol for Parkinson’s — it presumes that you can do something about it to recover. Oh, yes, it also means that you have to take responsibility and action to heal yourself.
When I had Parkinson’s and told people that I was doing a holistic healing protocol and not taking the medications, many people told me that I was in denial. I explained that I was not in denial:
I accepted the diagnosis. No doubt, with full acceptance, I had Parkinson’s.
I denied the prognosis that I could not be cured.
Are you ready? Okay. Let’s do this!
“I accept that I have Parkinson’s Disease.”
“I accept that I can do something about it.”
“I accept responsibility to take action and do something about it.”
“I accept that doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® puts me on my path toward recovery.”
“I accept that Howard and six others have cured themselves doing the Recipe, and hundreds, me included, are improving their Parkinson’s.”
“I accept that I will do the Recipe and stay on my recovery path until I fully recover.”
“I accept that ‘I have the power to heal myself’ and that I am healing myself.”
“I accept that I am recovering every day I do something positive in furtherance of my recovery.”
“I accept that I am worth it.”
“I deny that I have Parkinson’s Disease.” This type of denial is unhealthy because if you cannot accept that you have the disease, then you will be doing nothing to fight it. This leads to it getting worse.
“I deny the prognosis that Parkinson’s is incurable.”
“I deny there is nothing I can do to recover from Parkinson’s.”
“I deny that unless I am doing the Western Medicine treatments, taking medications and/or having brain surgery, I am doing nothing for my Parkinson’s.”
“I deny that the Recipe will not work for me.”
“I deny that I am not worth it.”
On the days when symptoms seem worse and fear creeps in, it is more difficult to keep the Acceptance and Denial affirmations stated above in the positive thinking, good attitude areas. Here is something to assist you:
Please remember that the journey you are on is life, not Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s is just something happening in the journey called life, so you deal with it while you are living your life to its fullest. Every road has bumps…it is how you view the bumps that matters…some people see the bumps as roadblocks to life; I preferred to see the bumps as nuisances that made me slow down and navigate more carefully.
While I was slowing down and navigating my life more carefully with my Parkinson’s bumps, I noticed so many beautiful things I had been missing; my Parkinson’s bumps in the road became such a blessing. They became mere signs to follow that I needed to pay more attention to healing my life, bringing my life back into balance, soul, mind, and body. And, when I finished healing my life, my soul, mind, and body, I did not need any more messages or signs, and they left.
Acceptance. Accept that you have Parkinson’s.
Denial. Deny that you cannot fully recover and be cured.
The Journey. The journey is life. Be alive and live your life to its fullest, despite Parkinson’s, and you will navigate yourself to your full recovery.
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
