Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #32 … A new perspective on fear!

pauseI am presently in the midst of an intense healing period. I’m grateful to say that a few blog readers are doing the same protocol and we are sharing our experience. I’m so happy not to be doing this alone. The healing we’re doing is based on a protocol developed by Janice Walton-Hadlock of pdrecovery.org.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #22 … Deeper Healing – Cultivating Self-Love!

easter eggsA few weeks ago I started waking up in the middle of the night feeling a bit panicky. It was due to some tightness in my throat [causing me to want to swallow repeatedly] and my tongue sticking to the top of my mouth. It was making think I might suffocate.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #12 … The Benefits of Shoveling Snow!

snow-shovelAs I sit here watching snow falling on this tranquil Sunday afternoon [we’ve received over seven feet so far this winter] I am reminded of the trepidation I was feeling last fall about spending my first winter on Manitoulin Island. The source of my uneasiness… among other things, tending to a 150 yard long driveway, mostly by myself [Mari is away two weeks every month] on an island known for lots of snow! Turns out my concerns were mostly unfounded.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #10 … Recovery through Reinvention – More from Dr Joe Dispenza!

singing in the rainIn my last post, I talked about four common factors amongst people who have recovered from a variety of health conditions, according to Dr. Joe Dispenza.

Dispenza goes on to say  that the single most important factor in the recovery of one’s health is to reinvent your personality. He claims that specific personality traits led to the development of disease and that good health cannot be restored as long as the same personality traits exist.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #8 … Accept My Condition!

reliefAs a follow-up to a recent post on the importance of focusing on the activities needed to return my body to homeostasis I would also like to bring attention to the importance of accepting my condition. Every moment I spend thinking about wanting to be better, I’m taking my mind out of the present moment and placing it in the future, and thus, putting myself in a state of wanting… a state of stress.
