I would like to share with you what I think you need to know in order to live effectively, and if all goes well, overcome the symptoms of PD and restore your health. In determining an appropriate title for this post, I was hesitant to include the number, 18. It’s not a round number, like 10, and it’s big number. I was concerned that it might be overwhelming. But the reality is, PD is a complex condition requiring a comprehensive protocol. You can’t simply treat it with a pill.
Sergio watched quietly from his front deck as a bald eagle soared majestically, high above. Circling on the air currents, it slowly ascended and descended, drifting northwards, then east, without once flapping its powerful wings.
The sight of this magnificent raptor captivated him like a child watching a Disney movie. It reminded him of something he had imagined as a young boy. If he could have one special ability, it would be the natural ability to fly! Yep!
As a person experiencing the symptoms of PD, I have learned through direct experience that it is extremely important to continually stimulate the body and the mind upon waking and throughout the day!
One warm summer day when Sergio was ten years old he reckons, maybe eleven, he went to the beach with a few friends to enjoy a swim. The beach was a short walk from Sergio’s house and they went there often. In the shallow waters at the far end of beach where the forest begins, they discovered a bunch of fresh water clam shells. The shells had long since been abandonned by the clams, which only have a lifespan of about six months, so they were safe to collect.
Like a lot of kids, growing up, Sergio had some idols! That was okay people told him because positive role models can be quite healthy for a child’s development. Because he loved sports and music, not surprisingly, his idols were athletes and musicians! He wonders what made him think of this walking through the forest as he was on this warm spring day!
Okay, it’s time for me to get in the game! Lot’s of people all over the world are reaching out in whatever way they can to help others during this time of coronavirus crisis. I would like to contribute by offering something I love to do … write stories. I was already planning to do this for people living with the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, but why not offer to a wider audience.
So, here goes!
The other night, I watched a movie called, Sergio. It was about Brazilian UN diplomat, Sergio Vieira de Mello, who was killed during a suicide bomb attack on the Canal hotel in Baghdad, Iraq in 2003. The movie was intense, dramatic and engaging. I really got into it!
In my last post, I discussed how to be at peace with the past. An equally important issue to resolve for those intent on recovering their health is minimizing fear, which is to say, minimizing worry and stress.
I was initially planning to post this blog for the benefit of those of us experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s, but in this time of worry and concern in relation to the coronavirus, it seems appropriate for a wider audience.
One 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. Second, that they mistreat others because they’re not spiritually conscious. And third, that people are doing the best they can with what they’ve learned in their lives. If people are taught hatred and harsh punishment, for example, this is what they give back to the world. When you understand these three things, forgiveness is not actually necessary. It happens by default.
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.
Christian Hageseth recently launched his new website, intentional-placebo.com, intended to help people overcome the symptoms of Parkinson’s and other health conditions. The program Christian has designed primarily focuses on using the power of the mind to change the state of the body.
Christian, as you may know from a recent post, is the author of Let’s Pretend and has been experiencing the symptoms of PD for a number of years. He has devoted himself to helping others recover their health.
He has prepared a video explaining the website and his program. Please check it out!
