A few weeks ago I noticed that even though I was now taking PD medication, I was experiencing worse trembling. Then I went for a chiropractic treatment … the first one since October … and I noticed an immediate improvement. The next day I went for another treatment and experienced further improvement. It reminded me of the importance of bodywork for minimizing certain symptoms, particularly trembling!
Different Drum is a song written by Mike Nesmith of The Monkeys in 1965 and made popular by The Stone Ponies in 1967, featuring an up-and-coming singer named Linda Ronstadt. Ms. Ronstadt, as you may know, was diagnosed with PD a few years ago.
Marching to a different drum is an expression usually referring to someone who sees the world in a different way, who is unconventional, a nonconformist. It seems that believing it is possible to recover from Parkinson’s disease makes a person a nonconformist. It makes them a marcher to a different drum!
The medical community unanimously believes that it is not possible to recover from Parkinson’s, as do the majority of people who have been diagnosed with the condition. It is the reason, I believe, why so many people diagnosed with PD, experience anxiety.
I know of at least five people who have fully recovered from the symptoms of PD, so it is definitely possible to recover.
The key to recovery, is threefold: belief, the right protocol for you and love!
Believe you can recover, develop and implement the right protocol for you [check out my protocol] and immerse yourself in love … loving kindness, loving compassion, loving generosity, loving acceptance, loving trust, loving forgiveness, loving gratitude and loving enthusiasm.
March to a different drum, be a rebel and feel the exhilaration!
Rick Hansen is a Canadian athlete, speaker and philanthropist. He is founder the Rick Hansen Foundation and is dedicated to assisting people with disabilities. He is also a paraplegic, having lost the use of his legs in an automobile accident at age 15. He is best known for his, “Man-in-Motion World Tour,” in the 1980s, when he spent 26 months wheelchairing through 34 countries to raise awareness for people with disabilities.
For me, Rick Hansen is a great inspiration and role model. He is a tremendous example of my belief that anything is possible, including recovering from what is supposedly an incurable health condition! I love watching this video of him on the Rick Mercer Report. It makes me cry every time!
Wishing you an inspiring day!
I have so much for which to be thankful! I have an amazing partner, three wonderful children, five fantastic brothers and their families, plus a long list of very kind and generous friends!
I am blessed in so many ways!
