I recently read Howard Shifke’s, Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery. Shifke, as you may know, is an American lawyer who fully recovered from Parkinson’s in 2010 after being diagnosed in 2009.
On our recent trip to Toronto, Mari and I got around to talking about dark energies. She told me she doesn’t believe in them. She believes that dark energies are just energetic beings vibrating at a lower frequency. I realized when she said this, that she was right, and not just how we think about spiritual beings, but also how we approach our health, particularly when we are dealing with a chronic health condition.
Thank you so much to Jimmy, who reads the blogs I post, for providing a link to an important article on the benefits of nutraceuticals in treating PD. It was published in the September 2016 edition of NeuroMolecular Medicine and contains a lot of medical terminology, but it’s well worth the read.
I recently received an email from a blog reader and friend who I have been corresponding with for the past year. He has been having a very difficult time, particularly because, until recently, he did not know what he was dealing with. He has now been diagnosed with dystonia, but he continues to struggle.
Given the number of requests for advice I have received lately on how to get off parkinson’s medications, I thought it appropriate to write a post on the subject.
Someone asked me recently what specific things I have found helpful on my journey with a neurological disorder, both in terms of minimizing the symptoms I experience and eventually leading to my recovery. This is what I listed:
I recently read, Hello Canada, a biography on iconic Toronto Maple Leafs hockey broadcaster, Foster Hewitt. It was written by Scott Young, former newspaper sports columnist and father of rocker Neil Young. Hewitt broadcast Leaf games for over 30 years, beginning on radio in the 1930s, before moving to television in the ’50s. He became synonymous with the Leafs and was known all over the world, particularly after calling the play by play during the infamous Canada – Russia series in 1972.
This post in support of the American Recall Center, whose aim is to provide drug and medical device recall information along with practical healthcare information and support. It is my hope, that by telling you a bit of my story, you will know that there is an alternative to taking medication, one of ARC’s mandates.
In 2008, I was told I had a neurotransmitter imbalance. Actually, I was told I had Parkinson’s Disease. I found out through my own research that PD is in fact a neurotransmitter imbalance. From the moment of my diagnosis, I made the decision to heal myself naturally.
Homeostasis is the innate tendency of the body to seek and maintain a condition of balance or equilibrium within its internal environment, even when faced with external changes. In other words, it wants to be in a normal state. For example, the body always wants to be at a temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. When body temperature rises above 98.6, it sweats in order to cool down. When it falls below 98.6, the body shivers in order to generate heat. The human body truly is a miracle!
