Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – A Journey of Love #46 … Finding Peace with the Past!

meditationOne of my biggest challenges in overcoming the symptoms of Parkinson’s has been coming to peace with my past.

I learned how to forgive others through the understanding of three things. First, that people mistreat others because they don’t feel good about themselves.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – A Journey of Love #44 … The Importance of Dissolving Emotional Pain!

doveThis post is about dissolving emotional pain, but before I get to that, let me give you some background.

I recently decided to reduce my daily Sinemet dosage. At the same time, I decided to  attempt to isolate and quantify the effects of CBD oil. Initially, I was doing quite well on both fronts. I had reduced my Sinemet dosage by a half a tablet per day with no ill effects. Then I cut my daily CBD dosage in half [from 40 mg to 20 mg] and my symptoms got worse. When I returned my dosage to 40 mg a day I felt better.

I was planning to further reduce my Sinemet dosage while doing more experimentation with CBD oil, however, my efforts seem to have been subverted by my inadvertent triggering of unresolved emotional energy. Let me explain.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #35 … Elevate Vibrational Frequency!

vibrational freqOn 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.

We want more dopamine and serotonin and less adrenaline and cortisol. Which the body wants as well by the way. It wants to be in homeostasis.
