Seven Secrets to Healing

What are the secrets that solve the mystery behind healing chronic diseases? How can you heal from the inside out so that disabling symptoms are reversed and imbalances in your body restored?

When we become ill we lose energy and get depressed. The gut instinct is to
find treatments that offer a promise of making symptoms magically disappear. There are certainly medical options that are no secret to anyone which do offer temporary
symptom relief. If you are searching for quick fixes to your illness you will not find them in my new book. Why? These quick fixes are not secrets!

What are the seven secrets to healing illness? I am confident you would never
guess the seven secrets because the path to authentic healing is unknown to most people.

  • Is one of the Seven Secrets to Healing all about the importance of eating a healthy diet? No! Certainly eating the right food is one of the pillars of maintaining good health and helping heal chronic diseases. But, this truth is no secret to anyone!
  • Is one of the Seven Secrets to Healing about the importance of getting regular exercise? No! Certainly exercise is also one of the pillars of reversing illness but this tidbit of wisdom is no secret to anyone.
  • Is one of the Seven Secrets to Healing all about the role stress plays in creating illness? No! Certainly stress plays a foundational role in creating and sustaining chronic diseases but researchers have already published hundreds of books that reveal this truth. The connection between stress and illness is no secret to anyone. .
  • Is one of the Seven Secrets to Healing all about the impact of economic hardship on a person’s overall health? Duh? Now, no one would ever find this observation to be a secret to healing.

OK. Enough. My point is simple. You will be surprised by the Seven Secrets of healing because they are indeed exactly that – secrets. Until now.

The truth is that the body can reverse any illness and heal any disease as long as the condition has not progressed to the point of no return. How do you make this happen for yourself? It happens by healing from the inside out rather than dampening symptoms from the outside in. Take the revelations of the seven secrets seriously. You will be dazzled to discover the results.

Seven Secrets to Healing

Two Alternative Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease

I released this week two interviews with people who have been successful using  two alternative therapies for Parkinson’s disease.  Each individual has experienced incredible relief from their Parkinson’s Symptoms.  Both methods quiet the mind and reduce the day to day stresses that are problematic for people with Parkinson’s Disease.

The first approach which proved successful for Bianca Molle is Qigong. The second which proved successful for Daniel Loney is Tai chi. Each  method originated in the East many, many years ago. Qigong and Tai Chi are both tried and true methods that have survived the test of time.

Some of the therapies that people place the most confidence in have emerged within only the past few decades and have not yet passed the acid test of time. In my “book” of successful therapies, continuous use of a therapy for centuries on end counts for something.  When people across the continents practice methods like Qigong and Tai Chi for hundreds of years they must be worthwhile, eh?

I am personally dazzled at the success these two individuals have manifested. They are true pioneers of natural methods that are helping more and more people across the globe reverse Parkinson’s symptoms. Techniques of Qigong and Tai Chi obviously differ but the end result is similar. They both help to bring the delicate balance of hormones that are critical to neurological health back to their natural state.


You can obtain more information about my interview with Bianca Molle who finds Qigong to be the therapy that worked for her by visiting:



Qigong for Parkinson’s Disease



There is also a video of Bianca’s presentation on Qigong on the Parkinsons Recovery Santa Fe Summit. Visit the Parkinsons Recovery Summit website to order the DVD of Bianca’a presentation.

Tai Chi

Daniel Loney has clearly found profound relief from his symptoms through a systematic practice of Tai Chi. He is now an active proponent of Tai Chi. He says it has helped him and other people with Parkinson’s Disease enormously.

Natural Therapies for Parkinsons Disease

Natural therapies for Parkinsons Disease can make a huge difference to anyone currently experiencing Parkinson’s like symptoms.  Many natural therapies are simple to use, require no prescription and  inexpensive. This past week I released a short series of books that focus on natural therapies that can potentially have a huge impact on helping to reverse Parkinson’s symptoms.

Natural Therapies for Parkinsons Disease that Help to Reverse Symptoms

Approaches that I have documented through interviews which involve little cost but offer the possibility of huge returns are LDN, essential oils, herbal medicines and Qigong. Naturopath John Coleman, ND, offers his own ideas of what has made a huge difference to him.

Diagnosed with PD in 2009, Judith has an inside understanding of the experience of solo traveling as a PWP. A longtime student and practitioner of The Path of Aloha, she has found the teachings of her Hawaiian elders especially helpful for meeting the challenges of living a full life partnered by Parkinson’s. She feels that her sound healing protocols have helped to stabilize her condition and minimize her need for pharmaceuticals. Her DVD, VOCAL ENERGETICS is scheduled for release in early 2014. Currently residing in Portland, OR, Judith considers Hawaii the home of her heart and soul. 


Soon after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2008, former Marin, CA schoolteacher Bianca Molle, serendipitously found herself at a Wisdom Healing Qigong retreat. Little did she realize that through the regular practice of this beautiful body/mind discipline she would find relief from her Parkinson’s symptoms, eventually leading to dismissal from her neurologist’s office. She has since written a book about this experience. REBOOT AND REJOICE is now available via Amazon and on Kindle. Bianca has a website at where you can view her blog and learn of her coaching and consulting offerings.

Difficulty Making Changes

I have always told other people with pride that I have no difficulty making changes. I embrace change. I proudly conjure many examples of why this is true: I have lived in many different states (Washington DC, New York, Georgia, Michigan, Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, Texas, Washington, Puerto Rico, California). I even lived overseas for six months while on a sabbatical.

I have also worked in many different jobs (Navy Officer, County Manager, Assistant Secretary of State, Professor, Business Owner). I even attended a healing school for four years. Now all of this evidence certainly sounds like I embrace change. You are convinced. Right?

Wrong.  When I dig deep down inside myself, I have to admit that I hate change. I love living in the same house. I love driving down the same streets. I love seeing the same neighbors. I love eating the same foods. I love doing yard work in the same way every week.  I love my routines.

OK. I admit it. I have have been lying to myself all these years. When our bodies begin to send out signals that something is out of balance (like with neurological symptoms)
it means that changes of some type or form are indicated. Worse, chances are good that changes we need to make in our life style are changes that deep down we do not want to make.

  1. We know we should make the changes. 
  2. We say will will make the changes.
  3. But we do not change.

Perhaps I no longer should be eating certain foods that are bad for my body.
I have a variety of cleaver rationales that supports my decisions to continue my same
bad eating habits. My arguments seem quite logical to me.  I use them to convince myself that I have the right to continue eating the food that I love.


  • I deserve it.
  • I have to learn how to give to myself. 
  • I have to learn to receive.
  • I need a break from the stresses of the day. 
  • Bla Bla. Bla. 

Believe me when I say that my list is endless.

When I personally eat dairy, my intestines become bloated. I look like Santa Clause. My entire digestive system shouts our in horror. Inflammation throughout the tissues of my body abounds. I feel absolutely lousy for days on end.

And I still do it? Hello.

Here is the truth of it all. When all is said and done, if you or I or anyone wants to feel
better when our symptoms flare (and everyone has unpleasant symptoms from time to time) we have to change our bad habits. Yes. it can be difficult to figure out what changes are necessary. But something has to change about the way we have been living, eating, moving, laughing and working.

  •  Perhaps the exercise we have been doing is not right for our bodies.
  • Perhaps we have wrongly convinced ourselves that exercise is bad for us.
  • Perhaps we need to move our bodies but prefer the couch instead.
  • Perhaps our body is allergic to some of the food we love to eat but because we have been eating the same food since we were kids, we refuse to eat something else. 
  • Perhaps we are eating dead food that is rotting the insides out of our intestines.
  • Perhaps we are surrounded with people who vomit a deadly sense of negativity which drives us into the valley of depression day in and day out. 

There are certainly an endless list of possibilities here. The bottom line is this: If I do not make some changes in my life, the symptoms of fatigue and depression that I have experienced from time to time will continue to linger.

The argument I have for you today is simple. If you are currently feeling lousy for whatever reason – some type of change is indicated. Something has to be added into your life or something needs to be taken away.

It is one thing to understand what changes are needed to feel better. It is another to institute the changes on a permanent basis. I suspect I am no different from most folks. I continue to struggle with making permanent changes to my eating habits.

I know what I should be eating, but do I? Sometimes. I know what I should not be eating. Do I avoid it? Sometimes.

What is needed is all the time. You now know all about my own resistance to making changes that will make me a healthier, stronger man. What are your truths? No one is listening to your thoughts right now. Why not be honest with yourself? Do you resist change too?

A big step toward making the changes that are critical to reverse troublesome symptoms is to take the first step. Acknowledge resistance to change. There. I have taken just this step myself. And, I am now more determined than ever to stop eating sugar.

What about you? What change are you making to your life today? Ah – too busy to even think about answering this question? My case rests and I am not even a lawyer.

Attitudes About Recovery from Parkinson’s

Be honest with yourself. No one is listening to your thoughts right now.

What are your true attitudes about recovery from Parkinson’s disease? Do you believe that – while a few people have succeeded in reversing their symptoms – the chances you can reverse your symptoms are about as good as winning the lottery? Or, do you believe recovery is possible, but find yourself doubting the miracle of recovery all the time?

We all have doubts.  There are so many people who tell lies these days it is really difficult to know who you can trust.   I have an idea for you to carry around in your hip pocket. Why not make a commitment to trust yourself?

I invite you to make a New Year’s Resolution beginning today – before 2014 begins.  How? It is simple.

  1. Print my post today.  
  2. Slip it into your pocket (where ever that might happen to be in the moment). 
  3. Take the ten resolutions below out of your pocket everyday. 
  4. Read them out loud to yourself. 
  5. Slip them back into your pocket to be retrieved again tomorrow. 

 As your belief in the statements below strengthens, prospects for recovery will also strengthen. The two go hand in hand.

Attitudes About Recovery

Expedite your journey down the road to recovery for 2014. Commit now to the following ten (10) New Year’s truths that will transform your attitudes about recovery in 2014.

  1. I create my life.
  2. My intention is to create health and wellness for myself.
  3. I admire people who have recovered from Parkinson’s disease.
  4. To have my health makes my life more enjoyable and rewarding.
  5. I get well be doing what I love.
  6. I deserve to be well because I add value to other people’s lives.
  7. I fully and completely receive the healing that is offered by my friends and family. 
  8. I am truly grateful for the health that I have.
  9. Opportunities for recovery come my way every day.
  10. My capacity to recover expands with each passing day.

Believe it and believe me. It will happen.  You do not have to trust me or anyone else. Trust yourself.  The power of the body, mind and spirit to heal is infinite.
