Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #55 … A stunning moment!

loon1I remember well the day we moved to Manitoulin Island! It was two years ago, August 26. We left Toronto at 6:30 PM, a convoy of three … I, Mari and Mari’s daughter! On the way north, we encountered a rainstorm and then were treated to a dazzling display of the northern lights. We made it to the bridge that connects the island to the mainland and 1 AM. Driving across the island, we saw a dozen deer, before pulling into our driveway an hour later! Stepping out of my truck to a bright, starry night, the first sound I heard was that of a loon! The hauntingly beautiful call of this magnificently plumaged black-and-white member of the duck family is my favorite sound in the universe! Hearing it that night, I felt at ease, at peace, safe, elated! I sensed my innate connection to the divine and I knew I was home! It was a stunning moment and I felt awesome!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #54 … Feeling divinity…A path to healing!

recovery2A couple of weeks ago I decided to change the focus of the blogs I was posting. I did this for two reasons. First, I have already covered everything I know about recovering from Parkinson’s. It is all included in my protocol! Second, I decided that my posts would be more beneficial if they were more inspirational in nature and content. Help others to experience happiness, even if only for a moment!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #50 … Stress due to conflict!

calmnessConflict arises when one party tries to impose its will on another party and the second party resists, or worse still, counters by trying to impose its will on the first party.

We are presently having such an experience on the road we live on!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #41 … Skipping and Kayaking!

kayakThis summer, at the behest of Mari, I took up skipping and kayaking! She thought it would be good for my fitness regimen! She was right of course, but I can’t get over how challenging it has been!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #40 … Deserving!

empowermentI have been wrestling with the issue of deserving for my entire life. There have been so many occasions when a joyful experience was followed very closely by a painful one! When I was 12 years old, my most exciting athletic accomplishment was followed shortly thereafter by my most painful one. When I was 16 years old, I had the best year of my life in hockey. The following year was my worst. When I was 20, I enjoyed the best baseball game of my life. I got kicked out of the next game in the first inning!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #39 … A Challenging Day!

victimTo quote a well-used cliche, “I’m not gonna lie to you,” yesterday was a challenging day! I’m not quite sure how to describe it except to say, I was a mess … and I’m not much better today! My voice was very raspy [almost inaudible at times] making it very difficult for me to use speech recognition. My entire body was very tense. There was considerably more trembling in my hands and much more loss of balance and freezing. I was also feeling very irritable and my patience was really put to the test!

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #38 … Minimizing Anxiety!

tranquilityLet me begin by saying, even though I’m writing a post about anxiety, I thankfully, do not experience a lot of it. The situations that cause me to experience anxiety include speaking in front of a crowd, packing for a trip or being late for something. These situations are infrequent.

Healing Parkinson’s Disease Naturally – Recovery Inspiration #36 … Minimizing Trembling!

calmnessI have had a number of inquiries lately on how to minimize trembling. Let me begin by saying, trembling is not the most challenging symptom for me. Loss of balance, freezing, loss of dexterity in my hands, shuffle walking and constipation are far more challenging.

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.
