Symptoms related to Parkinson’s, of course, are caused by, among other things, a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Other calming and feel good neurotransmitters, like serotonin and melatonin, are also deficient. When these neurotransmitters are in short supply [and particularly when you throw in a dollop of ego, fear and anger], a person is prone to unhappiness, depression, anxiety, brain fog, impatience and other assorted maladies, such as those related to Parkinson’s [trembling, loss of balance, slowness of movement, etc.].
Why is this a case? Why is it that a efficiency of neurotransmitters leads to so many negative effects? Why can’t they be positive? Our Creator must have a very devious sense of humor! As Homer would say, ‘stupid devious Creator!’
You see, if a deficiency of neurotransmitters had a positive affect on our body and mental health [even if they had a neutral affect], we wouldn’t be inspired to take action. We wouldn’t change our diet. We wouldn’t be motivated to eliminate stress from our lives. We wouldn’t seek to improve our attitude. We wouldn’t make every effort to live a healthy life!
Human beings, it would seem, are only motivated to seek change when things aren’t going well. When we are suffering! And so, a deficiency of certain neurotransmitters, like dopamine and serotonin, creates havoc in order to inspire a change of attitude, behavior and lifestyle … all, I believe, meant to guide us to a more compassionate, humane way of living.
If this is Creator’s strategy [and I believe it is], it is working with me! ‘Stupid Creator’s strategy! [My words, not Homer’s!]
Have an awesomely inspired day!
