Perhaps the most unpleasant aspect of my neurological experience has been constipation. Three years ago, it wasn’t an issue, but then it suddenly crept up on me. Until I got it under control, I had some difficult days… or should I say, difficult movements!
Thanks to a recent conversation with a friend, I had an epiphany about my experience with this neurological condition. I realized that I have been spending far too much time thinking about the symptoms I experience; wanting not to experience them.
Several members of a PD Facebook group I belong to have been extolling the virtues of Mannitol. They say it reduces tremoring and improves balance.
“Damn it!” I snapped.
“What’s the matter?” my concerned friend asked.
“I lost my balance and almost fell again!”
“Are you okay?”
I received an email a few days ago from Juan José in Guatemala. He described how a tea blend had helped neutralize the symptoms he was experiencing. When asked, he graciously agreed to share his story!
As a whole, I have a cheerful outlook! I hold the belief that I will recover my health and I view my current condition as temporary. I also hold the belief that what I am experiencing has a purpose. It is my guide to spiritual consciousness, self love and good health. My attitude is, to do my best to make each moment as joyful, peaceful and loving as possible because I know that the energy I create in each moment has a ripple effect!
My, how quickly my walking has improved!
Last week, I told you about the challenges I was experiencing, walking. I have been walking on a gravel road and had gotten to the point where I was shuffle-walking pretty badly, particularly when I tried multitasking while walking [thinking about stuff, practicing qigong or bostaff techniques, or just observing my surroundings]. I was starting to not enjoy walking!
My favorite form of exercise these days is walking! I walk for an hour almost every morning! It is an integral part of my healing protocol!
As a follow-up to some recent posts on how to manage specific symptoms, I would like to offer some advice on how to eliminate leg cramps and skin rash, two common symptoms of this neurological condition [parkinson’s] for which the medical community is uncertain of the cause.
Experiencing a neurological condition [parkinson’s] is confounding! Once in a while, when I am in the middle of, or about to begin, a task, I think, this is so weird! I can remember very easily when I could do this normally. It might be opening a jar, washing dishes, putting on a shirt or simply standing still. It is indeed a weird and confounding situation!
