Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #102 …The Power of Hallelujah!

homerHallelujah, essentially means to rejoice, to joyously celebrate God [the universal-energetic-intelligence]. It means to celebrate life!

For me, hallelujah is a tool I use on a daily basis to manage this neurological condition I’m experiencing. I use it in two ways. First, I yell hallelujah in order to neutralize the fight or flight state that I find myself in each day. Second, I use it to help me accomplish physical tasks I’m struggling with, like getting out of a chair.

What I find interesting is that I can stay in the fight or flight state for hours at a time at varying levels of intensity where as the joyful feeling I get from yelling hallelujah only lasts a few minutes. Neuroscientist and standup comedian, Dean Burnett, provides an explanation for this phenomenon. In his book, The Idiot Brain, he explains that the hormones released by the body during the fight or flight response, such as adrenaline and cortisol, will stay in the body for up to an hour [in my case, more like a day], where as, the neurotransmitters released during a moment of joy, last only a few minutes.

I guess the preservation of life is more important to the body than happiness. Makes sense!

So I find myself yelling, HALLELUJAH, a lot! I also find looking up, raising my eyebrows and smiling, to be effective, as well.

I’m sure the neighbours are questioning my sanity [they’re sure not questioning my insanity] but nonetheless, I am staying the course!

Oh, by the way, I also yell, WOOHOO, a lot. If it works for Homer Simpson, that’s good enough for me!

  1. I do the same thing Fred! I yell woohoo very often. Thanks to you I’ve added shouts of hallelujah to my repertoire. It definitely helps lighten the load or relieve the anxiety brought on by neurological symptoms.

    The piece of information you share from Dean Burnett is very valuable to know. I haven’t heard this before but it makes perfect sense. My flight or fight states seem to endure way longer than my episodes of joy. That’s why creating joy in our bodies needs to happen so frequently. A challenge for those of us like me and you who seem to have evolved on a different path. Keep smiling and thrusting those fingers in the air and yelling hallelujah!

    My fight or flight instincts seem to have institutionalized themselves in my body. Most of the time I don’t even know what the hell I’m worried about! Research shows that it’s possible to inherit this response from ancestors. Recent studies with rats show inheriting the stress response skips a generation, so it’s not the rat’s offspring that inherited overactive stress response, their “grandrats” do (grandchildren). By undoing the stress response we may be healing our ancestors or clearing up bad energy that’s been impacting our families’ health or at least creating healing from this point forward in our families. Hallelujah!!

    • It’s interesting that you should mention the ancestral link. Yesterday, I had a reading with a gifted spiritual intuitive who told me that when I was born, I decided to become the driver of our ancestral car. I took responsibility for the unresolved emotional pain of my immediate and extended family [part of my need to control all aspects of my life]. It’s one of the things I need to let go of. I need to get out of the car and let everybody resolve their own issues! Hallelujah!

  2. Fred and Jeff , thank you for your support. Something is changing radically- hopefully on better.
    I see those freezing situations as a game or learning opportunities. No more fear . Brain is more clear but still my English grammar is not better. Shaking only due to stiffness but yesterday I had few morning hours of normal walk without medication. Actually, everything was 80% normal and then I’ve scared myself and got stuck . However , after just a few seconds that disappeared and I was walking normal again . Those moments are becoming closer and more frequent. My energy level is high ( I’ve stopped B1 and any other supplements). I am in contact with Howard ( again ) and doing some exercise to improve my balance and flying forward ( I would say it works ). Howard is a great guy .
    Jeff – last time you mentioned PD as neurological but I am getting every day more convinced that is psychological. For example- just this moment talking about it , I’ve got all tight. Just thinking about it causes it . Probably my new game as once before used to be swallowing. My stiffness starts in a left foot. It twists and tightens and then muscles above the knee thightens , then neck , arms and back. Usually when foot relaxes , everything else gets fine too . However , realising those sequences caused me to shake less . Tight muscles cause shakes . Nothing else . Once when you realise that , fear gradually softens. When muscles are tight I cannot get up from the chair but when they are relaxes , I am normal.
    I am planning to experiment with HCT oil .
    Fred – keep it funny and positive WOOHOO . This disease is a joke and it should be treated as such .

    • I mostly agree with you Bratzo that the symptoms are rooted in the psychological realm though I would broaden the lens to be psychological/emotional/spiritual, which according to some is the root of all disease! One of the primary reasons Janice Walton-Hadlock believes fear is at the root of Parkinson’s is the symptoms vary so much from day-to-day, hour to hour, even sometimes by the minute, depending on how stressed or fearful we are. Seems logical to me that if the symptoms were hardwired, like a ruptured tendon or torn cartilage, the symptoms would not be so variable.

      Sounds to me like you’re on a great track toward healing Bratzo. Keep going! I’m glad you’re in touch with Howard too. It’s worthwhile be in touch with people who get to the other side of symptoms like these, reaffirming that it can be done! It will happen for us!

  3. As always- one more thing . As you Fred , I’ve always felt responsible and strong enough to take care about family ( even that I am youngest) but recently I just gave up and don’t . give any more advice. Guess what happened? Everyone is alive and actually doing better. God is telling me that I don’t have to care . He is taking care of everything .
    My prayers are short . God is love and love is God . I told my mother that I love her and she almost got heart attack.
