Fighting Parkinson’s, and Medical Qigong Sound for Calming the Liver full length video  

As mentioned in my June 12th blog post, in celebration of 12 years cured of Parkinson’s, I will be doing full-length videos of every exercise in the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. I will post them in future blog posts and insert them into the Recipe, put them on my resources page, and have them on my YouTube channel.

Medical Qigong Sound for Calming the Liver.

1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and eyes closed.
2. Place hands overlapping over the Dantian.
3. On the inhale, visualize energy rising up the liver meridian (begin at inside of big toe, come across foot and go above the inside ankle bone, up the inside of the leg to the groin, across to the outside of the ribs).
4. On the exhale, open your eyes and as you are pulling in your abdomen, squeeze your anus and let out the Xu sound (it is pronounced Shuuu Yiii).
5. Repeat for a total of 6 inhalations and 6 exhalations.

As you can see, I did this at a moderate pace. If you need to do it slower, please do it at your pace. Also, you can do it in a chair.

Thank you for joining in my 12-year cured from Parkinson’s anniversary celebration. I am happy to be doing Medical Qigong Sound for Calming the Liver with you each day. More to come.

You are worth it!

All my best,

    I’ve been dragging out the Yii… Yiiiiiiiiiiii 😛
    Also, despite being an artist, I’m terrible at the visualization part.

    I have done this qigong among other new excercise for some days now, and I have already been able to reduced my meds with 30% this week and feeling better! I have reduce my meds with 90% during 3,5 years of time (10 years with pd) but the last bit of healing and the last amount of meds I have struggled with for quit some times. I am doing your excercise among my yoga and meditation in the morning it fits in perfectly. Thank you for sharing!

    Thank you, it’s so encouraging to do while watching. I’m doing it sitting down.
    Congratulations on your 12th anniversary!

    Thanks so much, Howard. I can’t tell you how helpful these videos are in understanding the aim of the exercises, not to mention the doing of them. I’m like Vincent; I’ve been overdoing the ‘Yiii’. Somehow, I’ve also got into the habit of holding my breath on the inhale as if I’m gonna bust. I think I need to approach the whole thing more calmly. I’m also bad at visualisation, although one time some fireworks were going off as I was doing the second part of the near hand-far hand exercise for kidney and brain and they helped me to visualise the bright energy flow.
    I’ve been doing the evening Medical Qigong for the Liver with Howard ever since he posted the video. And when I’m doing it in the morning on my own, I can still hear him saying: ‘OK, halfway there’, ‘four more to go’, ‘just two more to go – you can do it!’ and giving me the congratulations afterwards. It’s keeping me motivated.
    Karen, sorry I missed roll call last week. It was a combination of Parkinson’s blues and feeling deeply upset by the death of Dame Deborah James (‘Bowelbabe’). Her ‘rebellious hope’ attitude reminds me of you. I hope you’re still giving old Parkie the runaround.
    Thumbs-up to everyone.

      Hi Val, it’s amazing how upset we can get over a complete stranger that we perhaps have not even met. I googled Deborah James. What an amazing woman, unbelievable strong and courageous in the face of adversity. She achieved so much and so selflessly and left her legacy in such a short amount of time, that would have taken most people a full life time to realise. What an inspiration, I understand your upset. I cried when Wayne Dyer died as he was such a part of my healing journey. I loved his humour and wisdom. They are both in a place now where they both can make a greater impact through spirit ( but that’s a whole different conversation. Lol) Hang in there kid. Much love my friend xx

      • Val H says:

        That’s a lovely message, Karen. Thank you for finding just the right words of empathy and friendship. I have Deborah’s book, How to Live When You Could Be Dead (sadly, to be published posthumously next month) on pre-order because I think it will give me a much-needed kick up the arse. I must explore your Wayne Dyer as well, some time. Sending love back to you. Val 💚

    Thanks, Howard! Thanks!

    My dream came true – to have a video for each exercise.
    Everything became clear!


  8. SN says:

    Thank you for the second video Howard! Your description & demonstration of the visualization is indeed very helpful.

  9. Margaret says:

    Thank you Howard!
    I really enjoy doing the exercises together with you and all the other warriors!
    Love and speedy recovery to all

    Thank you Howard for the second video of the Recovery Exercises. During exhale, I have been dragging Shuuu Yiii until I have exhaled out all of the air of the exhalation phase instead of the short Shuuu Yiii.

  11. Karen In Ireland says:

    Hi Howard, loving these new videos, so easy to follow. There is one or two that I am especially looking forward to, that I could not get the hang of. Keep up the fantastic work my friend. Love and gratitude to you and to Sally your camera man. 😁.
    Love to all warriors.
    Big love ,
    Karen 💕xx

    Thank you, Howard, this is very helpful. I was getting rather tense about the visualisation of the liver meridian, but you have made it simple.
