This 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.
There are still countless people who believe PD is incurable, and on the surface, this is understandable! Medical science has not … after over 200 years of trying … discovered a cure or developed a protocol that will lead to a cure.
However, this does not mean PD is incurable! If it is incurable then why are we spending so much money trying to develop a cure?
Medical community lack of success aside, I and many others unwaveringly believe it is possible for us to recover our health … for two reasons.
I thought this might be a good time to summarize my recent experience and strategy in overcoming anxiety. I’m still in the process, but I have made progress, particularly in my learning and understanding of anxiety and how to overcome it without taking pills [which is always an option].
If you are experiencing anxiety, please know that I understand what you are going through because I am there as well! Anxiety has become my biggest challenge, affecting me both physically and mentally! When I’m in a state of anxiety, the physical symptoms I experience significantly worsen!
The quality of our experience is largely determined by the quality of our thoughts! This is particularly true for anyone experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s. Generally speaking, if we have positive thoughts, we will have positive experiences.
But where do our thoughts come from? Where do they originate and what determines their quality?
The other day I found myself unwittingly pondering some experiences from my past of which I am not particularly proud. An announcement concerning the upcoming reunion of a hockey team I used to play for triggered the unpleasant trip down memory lane.
I am now into my sixth month of Bowen therapy and since my last update, I am continuing to experience increasingly intense symptoms for a week to 10 days between sessions. Last week, the symptoms I experience, including loss of balance, trembling, slowness of movement, stiff gate and mental fog were particularly debilitating. I am also continuing to experience intense emotional purging, particularly anger.
I recently decided to reread, A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle. It is my favourite book, and it has helped me immensely in understanding the root of, and coping with, this neurological condition I am experiencing.
A month ago, at the behest of Mari [she had an insight that this was important for me], we visited our local massage therapy clinic to see what they had to offer. When I explained that I’ve been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, the therapist suggested Bowen therapy. I said to her, that it was interesting that she would suggest this particular therapy because a naturopathic doctor from Australia had fully recovered from Parkinson’s and Bowen was part of his recovery protocol.
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!
