This morning I sat on the lawn, bathing in sunlight while enjoying a bowl of oatmeal! Surrounded by bees busily pollinating the wildflowers that border our yard, they were unconcerned about my presence! It was a delightful moment and I felt awesome!
Conflict arises when one party tries to impose its will on another party and the second party resists, or worse still, counters by trying to impose its will on the first party.
We are presently having such an experience on the road we live on!
I have had a number of inquiries lately on how to minimize trembling. Let me begin by saying, trembling is not the most challenging symptom for me. Loss of balance, freezing, loss of dexterity in my hands, shuffle walking and constipation are far more challenging.
I have long held that view that I’m not suffering from parkinson’s disease. Rather, I am experiencing a health condition characterized by certain symptoms. What is more, I don’t believe that I have to cure the condition. Instead, in order to recover my health I need to return my body to homeostasis.
Lately I’ve been focusing on topics and techniques meant to make our journey less stressful. Things such as laughter, karate techniques and spiritual practice. They have been very beneficial for me in managing my symptoms and keeping me in a positive frame of mind. In this post, I would like to touch on another stress buster … music … and more specifically, singing!
One of the most important elements of my recovery program has to do with laughter! Laughter counters stress and minimizing stress is absolutely critical to recovering from any neurological condition, particularly parkinson’s, because it is a condition that is caused by stress, but also creates stress.
I am pleased to provide you with a link to my updated recovery protocol. It’s the book I would have written had I been so inclined! It is based pretty much entirely on my experience. I am posting it now even though I haven’t yet fully recovered because it is helping me manage and minimize my symptoms without using medication and because I truly believe it can help people!
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.
I woke up this morning feeling better than I have felt in a long time. The last week has been particularly challenging mainly due to the fear I have been feeling!
Remapping the brain! It’s what the book, The Brain’s Way of Healing, by Norman Doidge, is all about. Dr. Joe Dispenza discusses it at length in his book, You are the Placebo. Both authors take the position that any neurological condition can be overcome by creating new synapses and neural pathways in the brain.
