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. Walton-Hadlock believes that Parkinson’s disease is not the result of being in a chronic fight-or-flight state of fear, but rather, it is from being in a chronic “pause” state of fear or from being in a chronic “disassociative” state of fear.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #27 … Medical Marijuana – Update!

marijuanaI started using medical marijuana a few months ago [which I wrote about in an earlier post] and I would have to say that my experience thus far has been … interesting.

First, I discovered that using marijuana for medical purposes is not an exact science. You have to figure out for yourself the appropriate formula [THC:CBD ratio] and ideal daily dosage. I have yet to figure this out!

I sourced my marijuana oil from a Health Canada approved dispensary. I started with 1.0 ml of a 1:20 THC:CBD formula then switched to 0.5 ml of a 10:10 formula. I took this amount once during the day and again at bedtime. Then I switched the daytime dosage to 1.0 ml of a 4:8: ratio.

So far, there has been no noticeable change in any of my symptoms. I have, however, experienced a considerable amount of anxiety and panic, especially at bedtime and in the middle of the night. Based on comments from others, this appears to be a common reaction. My assumption on this, is that marijuana brings to the surface the fear that is at the root of this health condition … which, as unpleasant as the experience is, makes it a good thing because it allows us to acknowledge the fear and dissolve it!

I’m taking a temporary break from using marijuana because I’m going on a fishing trip. When I return I plan to continue with it because I truly believe in it’s healing potential. I’m only going to use the 4:8: formula and I’m going to start with a much smaller dosage in order to build up a tolerance and minimize the intensity of the anxiety and fear. I will keep you updated on my progress.

Hallelujah!

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. I knew it was nothing serious [I wasn’t going to suffocate], but still, it was really starting to play on my mind… freak me out! I think it was triggered by the medical marijuana I was taking, because I was also feeling a lot of emotional upheaval during the day. I was getting to the point where I was scared to go to bed. I was doing everything I could to make the feeling go away, but it wasn’t working!

wildebeestI 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.

calmnessFor many people experiencing the neurological condition known as Parkinson’s disease, anxiety is one of the more common and challenging symptoms.

Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. It is an expression of fear, created by a thought. Given the challenges of the symptoms and given what the future holds for those who consider their condition to be incurable, it is no doubt that anxiety is so common.
