Fighting Parkinson’s, and your confident voice

About a year and a half ago, I began a Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms Relief video series. Today, I am posting again the third video, which focuses on strengthening your voice and improving articulation so you can face the world with confidence.

Many people with Parkinson’s find it difficult to go out in public or be in other social settings because they have a weak voice or feel like they are not able to correctly articulate their words. This is the worst feeling.

Parkinson’s has a way of making you lose some of your confidence, in the way the look, in the way you move, in the way you feel, and in the way you talk.

It is important to be able to go out into the world with confidence and a fully articulate booming voice. It is one of the things by which others judge how you are doing, and nothing says “I am getting better” more clearly than your voice.

1. Inhale deeply, and on the exhale say aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh loudly for as long as possible. Repeat this 5 times in a row two or three times per day. This will shake phlegm loose and increase voice volume as well as raise your internal vibration. 


2. Repeat the following for one minute each:

Lalalalalalalalalala 

Nanananananana

Tatatatatatatatata         

You can do this 1-3 times per day. These are exercises for the tongue, and they help with articulation.

Here is a video for further explanation and a demonstration:

Okay. One last thing. I could not hear any of you. So, take a deep breath right now in the moment, and let me hear a big, booming aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh. Okay, okay, okay…I am hearing you now. Good for all of you.

If you wish to see the other symptom relief videos, here is my You Tube Channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/hshifke

Now grab onto the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, be with people when you are allowed to go out again, and in the meantime, pick up the phone and call somebody. Brighten their day, and as you give them joy, you will feel joy, and your dopamine will flow. Be your own cure for your Parkinson’s!

I know you can do it.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

Fighting Parkinson’s, and ten years symptom free

On June 12, 2020, I will be ten years with no Parkinson’s symptoms. Ten years with no Parkinson’s Disease. I am cured. I am joyful. I am grateful.

As I have been asked in the past, recently I have been asked a couple of questions to the effect of: “Will you be offering reduced-cost coaching again in celebration of being ten years symptom free? If so, can you offer it at the beginning of the month of June so I can sign up and get started right away at the the reduced cost?” My answer has been simple: “Yes. Yes.”

This leads me to the point of fear…and faith. There are people who are afraid to “jinx” themselves by doing the very thing I am doing here today. That is the epitome of fear. I am celebrating ten years of being cured from Parkinson’s eleven days in advance of the “official” day. That is faith!

Faith in my life. Faith in my Higher Power. Faith in my cure. For those of you who are new to this website and blog, I say cure because I did the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® and became symptom free…and I stopped doing the physical part of the Recipe. The mental and spiritual parts are how I learned to live my life. No symptoms have returned, and they won’t. That is faith. That is cure.

I have been doing Parkinson’s Coaching full time for nearly ten years, and for the opportunity to work with those of you who have signed up for coaching, I am grateful.

In celebration of my being ten years cured from Parkinson’s, I have an offer for you to help make Parkinson’s Coaching more accessible. I offered this same offer last year and it went well for quite a few of you.

If you sign up by June 30, 2020 for my Parkinson’s Coaching Package, the cost of your first eight 30-minute conferences cycle of coaching will be $350. That is a 30% reduction from the regular cost of $500.

If you already are coaching with me and wish to continue coaching at the end of this coaching cycle, your next eight 30-minute conferences cycle of coaching will be $350.

The Parkinson’s Coaching Package includes:
Eight 30-minute conferences with me, by phone, Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp Video
, or Zoom Video, or in person; and

Email communication.

With this first cycle of Parkinson’s Coaching (or continuing Parkinson’s Coaching) $350 offer, you will receive the full Parkinson’s Coaching Package as if you had paid the regular full cost of $500.

Here is a little more information about my Parkinson’s Coaching. As you know, I have provided you with the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® at no cost. Many of you have posted comments about how you are doing with the Recipe, and many of you have emailed me that you are working on it. That is great. What I have learned from many who I am coaching is that it is not the starting the Recipe that is the hard part, it is the sticking with it that is the hard part.

A large part of the inability to stick with it is not understanding fully what you are experiencing. With Parkinson’s Coaching, we are in continuous communication so you can better understand what is going on with your symptoms and your recovery. I can relate what is happening with you to my own experience and coaching experience, and can provide you with the explanations, comfort, and continuing support to keep you on your path to your recovery.

Click here to learn more about Parkinson’s Coaching, including how to sign up for the Parkinson’s Coaching Package with the special offer.

On June 12, 2020, I will be ten years with no Parkinson’s symptoms. Ten years with no Parkinson’s Disease. I am cured. I am joyful. I am grateful.

“I have the power to heal myself.” And I did.
“You have the power to heal yourself.” And you are.
“Together we have the power to heal the world.” When there are enough of us fully recovered as a result of the Recipe, we will have the power to heal the world from Parkinson’s.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

Fighting Parkinson’s, and surrendering the ego mind

The ego mind looks to the past. It is a function of what already has occurred, and it simply cannot see how wonderful life can be in the future. It fights you because it knows when you open your heart and soul in faith, you surrender the ego mind.

Fighting Parkinson’s, and sitting…and doing nothing

Okay. Let’s sit and do nothing. Just sit and do nothing…and see what happens. That is doing. It is seemingly doing nothing that is powerfully doing something in your recovery. How can doing “no thing” actually be doing “some thing” useful? I will explain.

Fighting Parkinson’s, and cultivating your garden

On Wednesday, I was explaining to a person that I viewed a big part of my spiritual healing in the same way I viewed cultivating Sally and my gardens. I saw my soul as the seed of God inside me that needed nurturing. As I nurtured the seed, my soul, it grew and pushed away the toxicity of my mind and body, ultimately leading to my full recovery. It lead to a great discussion, and she asked me to post this for all of you.

Fighting Parkinson’s, and being joyful

Okay. Here we go. You have Parkinson’s, the world is dealing with COVID-19, you probably are on a “stay at home” order with limited permission to leave your home, and I am saying “be joyful.” Being joyful is a choice, and it is a choice that lights up your dopamine. Okay! Let’s do this.

Fighting Parkinson’s, and how fear can impede your recovery

We have discussed many times how faith is important in this recovery. It is faith at the beginning, “I know I will recover,” that sends you down your path toward recovery. Faith gets you started, and faith helps you through the hardest of times. However, if your faith gets shaky in the face of fear, and fear takes over, the fear can impede your recovery.
