In this series on ‘Recovering from Parkinson’s Disease‘ I’ve written about the protocols that I attribute to the beginnings of my recovery and I’m convinced that you too can recover from Parkinson’s following these protocols. You may have to modify them a bit based on your condition and situation, but I’m confident that they will help you.
So far, I’ve covered the following topics:
- Diet and supplements
- Releasing anger and fear
- Releasing unresolved emotional pain
- Releasing unconscious beliefs and hidden fears
- Exercise and muscle memory
- Releasing sadness in the heart
- Prayer, mantras and affirmations
I strongly believe that each of these protocols has played a significant role in the beginnings of my recovery and my experience is mirrored by others who have recovered from Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions using similar protocols. There are three other things that I believe have contributed to my progress. They include, grounding, colon cleansing and Qigong.
Gounding involves laying on the ground or sitting on the ground in bare feet with the balls of your feet resting on the ground. The purpose of this exercise is to allow healing energy [electrolytes] from the earth to be absorbed into your body. These electrolytes help to alkaline the body and rid it of inflammation, both of which are essential for returning the body to homeostasis. It may also help strengthen your organs and glands.
Grounding also has a secondary benefit. When I am lying on the ground or sitting with my feet on the ground the symptoms I experience are diminished. There is less trembling and tension in my arms. This is an awesome feeling, so I do it whenever I can!
Colon cleanse is an important part of the detoxification process. I did two colon cleanse last fall and there was a marked improvement in my bowel movements. Given that constipation is a symptom of Parkinson’s anything that improves bowel movement is worth doing, and I highly recommend it.
Qigong, I believe has also contributed to my recovery. I wrote about this ancient Chinese system of movements designed to enhance our health and well being in an earlier blog. I can’t say that it has contributed to my recovery in a specific way, other than to say when I’m practicing the movements, my symptoms subside: my balance is good, there is no trembling and there’s no tension in my arms. I do believe that it is helping to strengthen my Chi, as it is intended to, and thus, reducing stress and helping to alkaline my body, eliminate inflammation and get my lymph fluids flowing, all essential for healing.
Give Qigong, grounding and colon cleansing a try. Add them to your protocol. They cannot harm you and at the very least, they will help give you relief from symptoms.
