Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #72 … The benefits of shoveling snow!

shoveling snowCall me crazy, but I quite enjoy shoveling snow! I love the fresh air, the exercise and I even enjoy the snow; white and fluffy as it is! Of course, if I had my choice, I’d be lounging about on a beach somewhere in the South Pacific! Unfortunately, that is not an option at the moment, so best to make the most of our Canadian winters!

When we moved to Manitoulin Island last year I anticipated a lot of snow and I have not been disappointed! Last winter, we received over 9 feet of the white stuff! It was a little overwhelming at times, particularly given that we have a 130 yard long driveway with a large parking area near the house, but thanks to some generous neighbours [with snowblowers] I managed just fine!

What I like most, is the serenity! It is so peaceful and quiet! It puts my mind at ease! It also helps that I frequently find fresh deer tracks, telling a story of our nighttime visitors!

It can be challenging at times given that I’m dealing with loss of balance and freezing, but as long as I take it slow and easy, I’m fine! Besides, what’s the worst that can happen? I might fall in some snow? Mercy, I might think I’m a kid again!

This winter is off to a good start! We had almost a foot of snow this morning and I spent almost 3 hours shoveling! I still have about half the driveway to do and I’ll be back out there tomorrow!

I know the exercise and fresh air is good for me and I’m content to also know that it’s helping me on my path to recovery!

Heave ho!

  1. You know Fred, I understand you, I always loved shoveling snow at home in Germany, where I grew up. as you say, it is calm, beautiful, peaceful and great exercise. I loved it when I was the first out there with fresh snow. And when it was snowing while shoveling even nicer. By ht time you did the pavement , the path was full with snow. I sort of miss it here in London.

  2. Fred,It is always good to have a fellow snow lover.Most people look at us as if we are crazy when we say we want it to snow.Keep shovelling.

  3. You can all keep your snow – we have Summer ! and what a glorious Summer its turned out to be so far, best in years. Loving it ! !

  4. thanks BRATZO… interesting your theory ……. from my point of view and in my humble opinion I am convinced of the works of DR Pishinger inflammation of the brain- iis caused by the cellular metabolic wastes TOXINS that accumulate in the environment interstitial space, by metabolic acidosis causing hypoxia, causing the cell to run out of oxygen and without nutrients, which leads to cell death …….. these toxins accumulate in the ceellullar environment due to the liver and kidneys being overloaded ………. to give an idea the liver filters 5 liters of blood per minute what is equal to 7000 litters per day, the size of a room, is too much.THEY NEED TO BE CLEAN

    • Jimmy , I agree with all that and nothing is wrong in that theory except one thing – it does not go far enough.
      Why I don’t shake when I am asleep or relaxed ? pH is still the same .
      It is about electricity. pH is exchange of electrons . When I am asleep my body running on different voltag. All chemical reactions are electric reactions . Including sunlight and light therapy.
      I am sure that we agree about that .
      You will be fascinated by this link below . It’s a pity that he has wasted interest in all that and his machine is expensive ($5000) but in any case , I never heard better explanation.

  5. Love this. I too have had a chance to shovel but at the moment we are just cold with a bit of leftover snow on the ground.I love your thought of feeling serenity. A hint of joy wafts through when you speak of maybe being a kid again. Use to love snowball fights, fox and goose, etc. Mark Nepo writes in his new book Things That Join the Sea and the Sky: “Under all of our brokenness wells a bottomless spring that rises from nowhere to find all hearts” I thought as I read your words,,, From the wellspring beneath Parkinson’s lies a great heart that finds expression through words and deeds to touch other hearts. Thank you for your ‘soul song’…

    • Yes , I cannot find fault in his way of thinking. He also believes in muscle biofeedback testing .
      His machine is about $5000 but in Russia you can get the original one ( produced years earlier for the space travel) for a few hundred dollars.

    • Yes Jimmy . Kinesiologic test . I personally cannot believe in that but after seeing him performing one I am a little bit more open to it .
      Bad news – someone stole my basketball from the garage 😭 ( school kids ) and second bad news – I’ve ordered wrong led lights . They are correct lights but they arrived in a rolle ( as described) not connected . Plus they need some special procedure to be connected 😭. Not a good day .

      On a weekend I again had two days water fast and felt excellent. Since then I only used one tablet of 50/200
      Instead of 4 . However today I am a bit slow ( too much sweet stuff). If I empty my gut before fasting ( with medication pico prep ) I really feel grate . If I don’t , effect is not so impressive . Interesting.

      I am preparing myself to completely stop grains ( bread – my favourite food) and sweet stuff. That will kill me 😱

  6. I have also stopped eating all sweet stuff, and greatly reduced my carb intake, I’m sure its helping, plus I make my own probiotic yogurt, which has eliminated my gut and constipation problems, its been about 6 mths now and I’ve lost any craving I had for sugar. Onward and upward ! I am still on 25/100 twice a day, and sometimes only once. I do a ‘cold turkey’ day, sometimes as well, to give my brain and organs a rest from the drugs, it helps to make my meds work more effectively as a result.

  7. Hi Bratzo, no decided against amalgam removal after the initial quote, close to $10,000. OUCH ! i am getting a root canal filled tooth removed , however, which has silent infection cooking away, which has been discovered.

    • Rip off , I know. One friend of mine went to Thailand and did some dental work for $1000 ( quote here was $12000) First class job . We tend to think it is a third world country but trust me , They have a First class treatment. Another friend went to Spain . Both have a nice holiday at the same time
      When you get rid off your tooth canal , your health will improve dramatically. When I was in army one guy was suddenly in pain , hearth pain , could not walk and getting mentally unstable. We had to carry him to hospital- good doctor found it was from tooth infection. I don’t want to scare you but I want you to see that as extremely positive move .

  8. I agree with you, I have heard that the work done in Thailand is first class, but the thought of travelling there alone, does not fill me with joy.
    My abcessed root canal tooth was only discovered during a 3D scan at an implant specialist I went to in Auckland to replace my missing front tooth. Very glad I decided to fly up there, I’d had two lots of x rays from two different dentists here in my home town, and no mention of the problem. Because the nerve has been removed, there is no pain, although looking back, I can remember unexplained shooting pain on that side of my face for a long time, always thought it was my ear.

    • I remember reading that root canal treatment is never safe option and after reading your reply I can only say that you have a good chance to discover your major and hopefully only source of inflammation. That infection could have caused inflammation of TMJ / vagus nerve/ balance and so on ….
      Good luck !!!

      I really don’t know how to eat without bread .

      Interesting reading

  9. Hi Jimmy. Research Lactoferrin ( if you feel like it ).
    I came across some Russian research on use of Lactoferrin for AD and PD. I was not able to understand everything ( different language but similar) but apparently they have plenty of positive things in clearing oxidative iron and supplying non oxidative type of iron. There is a controversy in opinions if PD has too much or too little of iron- maybe just not right type of iron ( different voltage).

  10. THANK YOU VERY MUCH BRATZO…….IRON IS A VERY IMPORTANT MINERAL FOR THE TRANSPORTION OF OXYGEN IN THE BLOOD ……….. AGAIN, .. WE ALREADY LEARNT THAT LOW VOLTAGE IS EQUAL TO PH ACID —– PH ACIDO, WHICH CAUSES LACK OF OXYGEN …SO IRON BBEGIN TO ACCUMULATE IN THE BRAIN TISSUES IN THE CASE OF PD AD ……….. BUT THE LACK OF IRON IS AS MUCH UNFAVORABLE AS THE EXCESS

  11. Thanks Bratzo, best explanation of the origin of disease, I have ever heard ! Will definitely have to revisit the problem of getting my teeth fixed,,,, I have 5 root canal fillings and lots of amalgam. Oh dear . . .

  12. I’m in the process of getting a quote to travel to Thailand in Feb, to deal with my dental situation, after watching the above video, it has galvanised me into action.

  13. FRED, ALL FRIENDS MARRY CHRISTMAS ……THANK YOU VERY MUCH ALL OF YOU………….FRED,, BRATZO, REBECA JEFFF RICHARRD UUTESMILEE AND EEVERYONE I LOVE YYOU

  14. Merry Christmas to all my PD friends , you have made my journey a lot more interesting and informative, giving me hope along the way., love and appreciate you all.
