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.
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.
In 1993, I learned about the relationship between present suffering and unresolved emotional pain from the past [especially from childhood experiences]. Since then, I’ve been healing unresolved emotional pain from the past almost on a daily basis, and I’ve experienced many positive results. For instance, I was able to overcome migraine headaches that I had been experiencing at a rate of three to four a week. I have been a big believer in the concept!
Since then, I have also been on an on again, off again quest to discover a process whereby I can dissolve all unresolved emotional energy from the past in one-fell-swoop! In essence, a magic bullet!
I’m thrilled to say that I have been successful in my quest!
I think the most difficult challenge we face on our journey through life is undoing the emotional damage we experienced growing up. It affects us on so many levels: our health, our finances, our careers and our relationships.
We have all experienced some form of emotional pain at some point in our life from being abused, criticized, left out, harshly punished, abandoned, teased, bullied, embarrassed, humiliated, witnessing a tragedy, losing a friend or family member, and many other forms of mistreatment and trauma.
In the movie Back to the Future, Marty McFly, played by Michael J Fox, changed the present by changing the past. If you are experiencing some form of dis-ease in your life, you can do the same. Be it physical, mental or emotional illness, or financial, career or relationship difficulties, you can change the experience by rewriting your history.
I stopped believing in the tooth fairy! I also stopped believing in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, but I never stopped believing that I was a coward. Nor did I stop believing that I was inferior, inadequate and helpless, and consequently, I never let go of the anger or the fear!
I have come to the conclusion that healing a ‘disease’ is really a matter of detoxification. Having said that, I must admit that I’m no expert in detoxification. At least not as it relates to dietary detoxification, so this is going to be more of a lay perspective on the subject. While I’ve had no formal training in detoxification, I can tell you that it is an important part of healing and I’m in the middle of detoxifying right now. No matter what condition you are trying to heal, be it physical, mental or emotional, the first step involves detoxification.
In his book. Lucky Man, Michael J Fox says he considers himself (surprisingly enough) a lucky man. This seemingly absurd claim (if you have experienced the challenges of living with Parkinson’s, you’ll likely agree that this is a rather odd thing to say) is based on the positive changes Fox has experienced in his life and the way in which it has become more meaningful, particularly in creating and overseeing the Micheal J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. It has also thrust him into the role of lobbyist for increased government funding, and in addition to connecting with many people living with the condition all over the world, he has become the defacto Parkinson’s spokesperson.
I imagine the mind of someone living with Parkinson’s to be some what of a tortured mind. I imagine their soul to be somewhat of a tortured soul. Much darkness! What else would cause the brain, the home of the mind, to become so mis-wired?
Certainly this would characterize me and much of my life … rushing through one task to get to the next, one addiction to get to the next. My mind ever vigilant for the next quest! No time for rest! Nothing was ever enough!
Little genuine and sustained happiness!
Until now, because there are so many books and so much information available on the Internet, I haven’t felt the need to post a blog ‘about’ PD. Instead, I’ve focused on how to go about healing it naturally. However, given the feedback I’ve received and the questions I’ve been asked, it seems this would be helpful. So here goes!
