Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #71 … A simple technique to help overcome freezing!

swinging armsIf you have been following my blog posts, you may recall that I have written about two techniques I discovered that help me minimize freezing. The first is to stagger my feet. I have found that I am more prone to freezing when my feet are side-by-side. The second technique is to tell myself to take a big step, then bend my knees quickly, and take a big step.

I recently discovered a third helpful technique! It simply involves swinging one or both arms in the direction I wish to step … I initiate the swinging motion just before stepping. I have been doing it now for over a week and it helps enormously. Quite frankly, I don’t know why this didn’t occur to me sooner, given that I used to teach my martial arts students to swing their arms and upper body first in order to throw more effective spinning kicks. Such are the peculiarities of the human mind!

If you haven’t already figured this one out, give it a try and let me know if it helps!

In the meantime, have an awesome day!

  1. Fred , it works . Similar procedure helped me when I was frozen in hospital- I was writing about that . My system was clapping the hands in front of me and behind me ( I have explained that before ).
    There is interesting explanation for that given to me by Greg Neville ( writer of that book that I have recommended- I had 3 meetings with him ). Basically you are giving permission to part of your brain responsible for movement that it can send the signal- you agree . As you can see it is all about being in CONTROL or control the situation. It is important to know that there is nothing wrong to do that and you should do it but you should always remind yourself of what is really happening ( and nothing is wrong with your brain ). Eventually you will find yourself in no need to do that and movements will flow .
    It is important to love ourselves. That was a bit esoteric to me until I red somewhere that ” our body is always trying hard to help us and work with us , to send us messages ( that we don’t always interpret properly). Body constantly trying to heal itself and help us but we are often so far ….. in the future ( in a fear land ) .
    Next time when you shake , freeze or get constipated, ask yourself- body what are you trying to tell me ? Should I rest more , eat different or react differently?
    The other day I woke up ( worse time of the day for me ) and wobble to toilet . Immediately FEAR went into me , telling me ” nothing works for you , you are going down the drain etc “. My whole body shook and I was surprised that toilet bowl didn’t break from shaking but then that thought past my mind that body is my friend and is trying to tell me something. After a minute I was calm , no need for medication at all ( I skipped it on purpose just to experiment) and my walking was normal .
    Every day I am more and more convinced that PD is only in my mind and nothing else . My friendly body was listening my twisted fearful negative mind and trying to protect me from danger by doing all these things that body thinks it is good to do when danger is around the corner .

    Hope it helps

  2. It is the most beautiful morning in Sydney and I have decided to stuff it up .
    I have decided to go all day without medication and see what will happen. At the same time I will water fast for 24 hours . Last time when I took medication was 12 hours ago – last night .
    I hope I won’t have to write from hospital ( again). 🙀

  3. Happy to report my successful day without meds yesterday, I’m sure my brain appreciated it and I slept well. I must do it again soon. But today I want to go up the river for a swim, so meds here we go again.

    • Same here Rebecca. Nothing happened. I didn’t take 4 tablets of Sinemet 200/50 and 2 1/2 tablets of some Chinese tablets 50mg slow release.
      I feel my usual bad in the morning. I will skip my morning tablets too to see if that ” morning sickness ” will go away 😀.

      Richard, are you ok ?

    • Well, I just took medication and probably didn’t even reached my stomach and I felt good- psychological tension disappeared.

  4. Cant click on it, it says the site cant be reached.
    Ive had a marvelous day and a refreshing swim in the river. I think going ‘cold turkey’ ysterday was beneficial.

    • Good research Jimmy .
      As I can see , again it ends up with inflammation of the brain- in my opinion, probably caused by bacteria. I was mentioning earlier hepatic encelopathy and treatment with Refaximin. That is inflammation of the brain ( enlargement) due to inflamed liver . Same symptoms as PD . RIFAXIMIN is antibiotic that treats that by treating bacterial overgrowth in small intestine- interesting connection. Sugar like Mannitol is also used to treat that – interesting.
      Recently I have found that people with urinary infection (UI) could develop mental confusion/ deterioration ( also frequent and urgent urination – with or without pain ) . Guess what helps – D Manosse ( derived from Mannitol) – interesting. Plenty of water too .
      When I’ve returned from China my frequent and urgent urination suddenly disappeared ( end liver results improved) and now is slowly coming back. I will order d Manosse and see what will happen.
      All that takes me to week immune system and opportunistic bacteria being the cause of inflammation and PD etc.

      If you research UI you will find that doctors know about connection between UI and PD and AD but funny enough they blame PD and AD as the cause of UI !!!
      Unbelievable logic.

      We are getting closer Jimmy 🙏

    • Thank you for this Jimmy! I believe too, that inflammation is a contributing factor… Along with acidosis, a clogged up lymphatic system, a weakened immune system and poor gut health. These are all contributors to the body being out of homeostasis! The cause of this is poor diet, chemical toxicity, unresolved emotional trauma, physical trauma and chronic stress/fear.
