Survival Guide/FAQ

Let’s start the new year fully empowered to make this the year of recovery…all the way to full recovery! To assist you, I have gone through my site and pulled many meaningful posts to provide you a quick-link survival guide for your recovery journey. Let’s start with this affirmation of recovery: “Parkinson’s is a symptom of my life out of balance, and I can repair the imbalances and recover!”

Opening Thoughts and Considerations:
Parkinson’s Disease is viewed as a progressively degenerative incurable neurological disease. The medications for the disease assist with the symptoms, but they do not stop one from getting worse and they do not cure the disease; also, they have many undesirable side effects. The herbal remedies, supplements, and Ayurvedic formulas assist with the symptoms, but they do not stop one from getting worse and they do not cure the disease; also, they have many undesirable side effects. If either the medications or these alternative remedies cured the disease, then the disease would not be designated as incurable.

This brings me to the point that if you want to recover, the place to start is to believe that “I have the power to heal myself.” Why? Because nobody who is treating you believes that you can recover or be cured. No offense to them, but they are approaching Parkinson’s treatment from the perspective of disease management. If you want to have a shot at recovery, you have to transcend the conventional wisdom of Parkinson’s Disease management and strive to get yourself better. The Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery™ provides you the tools and guidance for your recovery journey.

One more time: “Parkinson’s is a symptom of my life out of balance, and I can repair the imbalances and recover!”

Howard
