Tip for Swallowing Safely

Hey Robert,
After having done lots of CPR through the years and also taking hand fulls of supplements on and off through the years, I wanted to mention that what may make it easier to swallow pills is simply the anatomical alignment of your head and neck and spine.  For me if I tilt my head up even slightly it makes swallowing pills nearly impossible.  If I look ahead and even move the eyes slightly downward there is no resistance whatsoever (like offering breath for a small child or infant in CPR ~ if the head is tilted back at all it usually blocks the airway so we use a more neutral position most effectively).

Calming of the Tremor

Yes!!

This is so exciting.  Last night I clearly noticed a calming of the tremor.  This morning there was a time period of it reverting back to only a thumb tremor (how it started roughly 3 yrs ago). This has not happened before.   Also last night I felt very calm from talking with another soul that truly believes in the bodies memory of wholeness. I’m also amazed at the clearing/calming feeling that blanketed over me while you spoke of the Physical and Energetic relation to Invasion and Parasites as well.  To top it all off, I slept over two hours past my usual 4:15 ish inner wake up alarm.
Three new and likely contributing factors added to the menu of remedies and soul reminders from yesterday:
  •    -A good hard laugh while conversing with Tim B.
  •    -First 1/2 dose of  SYNCOLEIN
  •    -An amazing phone consultation with Dr. RR.

This morning I also discovered NIACIN and its relation to PD.  I’m already naturally eating some of the best sources of B3 but will add more of the higher niacin foods.

I don’t even want to think about how life would be had I not stumbled on your site when I was rather in a blind panic after a rather cruel presentation of a diagnosis and loosing my friend on same day.  It is again with tears that I share my appreciation for your consistent research and openness to share and find us who seek the path of healing.

John Pepper’s USA Speaking Tour

John Pepper will be arriving in New York City at the beginning of July 2017. He intends visiting the following cities and States:

  • New York City
  • Philadelphia,
  • Baltimore
  • Washington DC
  • North Carolina
  • Florida
  • San Antonia
  • San Diego
  • Los Angeles
  • San Francisco
  • Reno
  • Salt Lake City
  • Denver
  • Seattle

All that in two months! He is 82 years young and will be on this tour, with his wife, for nearly four months altogether. He is first visiting Italy and England, before heading for the USA.

John’s talk is on ways of overcoming many symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. He especially wants to show people with walking problems, HOW TO WALK NORMALLY. It takes less than 2 minutes to teach a person to walk normally. He has even taken patients out of wheelchairs and had them walking normally. He has only had 3 failures over 14

His previous trip here in the USA and Canada last year was highly successful.

As soon as his itinerary has been finalised, he will post it on his website – www.reverseparkinsons.net

Act now and get your name registered. If you live in Florida or North Carolina, maybe he can get to you, while he is there!

If anybody living in or near any of these cities or in N Carolina or Florida then please contact John on his website. He is looking for people to help him organise the talks.

Digestion and Parkinson’s

My research on how to heal symptoms of Parkinson’s often focus on specific symptoms not on the underlying issues with digestion For example, what has been found to heal episodes or tremors? Now, while my discoveries have certainly been useful to many, I have been influenced in recent months by two radio show interviews in particular.

The focus of both interviews was on healing the digestive system. Recent discoveries clearly suggest that malfunctions with the gut and digestion are a cause of many symptoms. This means that instead of searching for remedies for specific symptoms, a fundamental strategy is to focus your resources on bringing your digestive system “back on line” to full functionality.

I suggest you take a little time out of your day to hear both of these interviews. Natural Pharmacist Ross Pelton and Dr. Tom O’Bryan both center their recommendations on digestion and Parkinson’s.

Use Tremors to Muscle Test

What follows is a fascinating email from an individual traveling down the road to recovery who uses his tremors to great advantage. He refers to himself as “Tao.”  As you will discover below, his tremors are a surprisingly useful tool when it comes to muscle testing!
“I was having little success with trying various muscle testing techniques and it finally dawned on me to ask myself the question, “what might work best for me”.  Before I even finished asking that very question the thought came on like a light switch that I should use the tremor (that by the way I first acknowledged/interpreted as a ‘spiritual gift’ coming through back when I was living and backpacking in the Appellation Mountains last summer) as a method parallel to muscle testing. 
 I extend out my arm and briefly shake it into a relaxed state, then hold the pen as if i were about to write.  The little pause before the tremor is my yes and a more aggressive instant tremor a no.
I could be clueless if this tremor parts!!  lol”

Slightly Used Theracyle for Sale

Here is a notice about a Theracyle for sale. COntact Bob Jones if interested.

Robert Rodgers PhD
Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease 

“My wife has Parkinson’s, and to help her stay in fighting shape, we purchased a brand-new Theracycle 200 less than a year ago. But in the meantime, her lower back problems became more serious, so now we’re looking for someone to take the Theracycle off our hands. The bike is fully operational, and has hardly been touched. We’re asking $2500. I’d be very grateful if you were willing to share this information with your friends there on the internet.”

Thanks very much.

Look in the Mirror When Making the “Good Side” Worse

Here is a fantastic twist on the idea of making the “good side” worse to make the “bad side” better. Look in the mirror when you do this exercise. It is even more powerful.

Also, be sure to tap into all the deep feelings your have about your “bad side.” Make the exercise more than a thinking exercise.  Treat your “good side” just like you treat your “bad side.”

This really does help tremendously. Make it a habit every day for a few minutes.

Robert

Neurological Diplomacy

Neurological Diplomacy is a Feldenkrais strategy to “make the good side worse” so that the “bad side” can become better. Yes. this sounds totally weird and strange, but it does succeed in reversing symptoms. Really!

I will illustrate the concept by describing an exercise introduced by Ruthy Alon in a Feldenkrais workship. Ruthy Alon is a senior Feldenkrais Trainer and founder of Bones for Life who coined the term “neurological diplomacy”.  I learned all about this technique from an email I received from one of the workshop participants who prefers to remain anonymous. Below is an edited version of the email I received.

An Exercise that Illustrates the Magic
of Neurological Diplomacy

Do the exercise right now so you can experience precisely how and why it works to reduce the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s. There are seven steps.

  1. Pretend to drink water out of a stream, cupping your hands one over the other. Image you are drinking water from a fresh water stream. Sip water out of your two hands as you bring your hands up and down from the imaginary stream. Notice how easy this movement is for you. Notice also which hand is on top of the other as you do this.
  2. Rest a moment.
  3. Now, do the same imaginary movement again, but put the other hand on top. Bring your hands all the way to your mouth to drink the imaginary water. This is not your familiar or easy way of doing it. Chances are good this movement will not feel so comfortable or easy.

How do we go about improving the second way of doing it, the way that is not so familiar and more difficult?  We do not want to directly work with the “bad” side because this is not where the brain is working well. There is a lack of understanding by the brain or a difficulty there.

In the case of a Feldenkrais treatment there may be an injury or pain involved in the “bad side” or “bad movement”. No learning, nor any good outcome, can easily happen when the practitioner works directly with the “bad side”. Rather, the practitioner will leave the “bad side” alone and not attempt to “fix” it.

In summary, do not even think of any side as “bad” or any movement as “bad”. Instead, accept it as it is. Simply leave it alone. Ignore it. Do not even think of changing it.

Doing so is an act of violence. This is the last thing anyone needs who experiences the symptoms of Parkinson’s. 

  1. Now, do the movement the “hard” way again and notice carefully how it was hard and why. Perhaps your shoulders are tighter with that unfamiliar arrangement of the hands. Perhaps the brain is confused. Perhaps the coordination is klutzy in that unfamiliar way. Whatever – notice what you can.
  2. Rest a moment.

Now Comes the Magical Solution

The Heart of Neurological Diplomacy

  1. Now do the easy movement, with the comfortable arrangement of hands one top of the other. Make sipping water difficult by pretending you now have on the “easy side” all the trouble or difficulty you had on the “bad side” with the unfamiliar palm on top.

Play like that for a little while, pretending to imitate the bad movement even though your palms are arranged in the more comfortable arrangement. Try to feel a little frustration about the situation. It is as if you want to convince the brain now that “I do not have any easy way to get a drink of water with my hands.”

  1. Then let it go and rest. Breathe. Forget all about this. Just relax. After a minute or so go back and try to “drink water” with palms arranged in the “bad” or unfamiliar way.

Now, it will be much easier in most cases to make the movement the “hard” way using the more uncomfortable arrangement of hands. If that is not magic I do not know what is!

The surprise of the day is that you did not work with (or pay any attention) to the “bad side” at all! The intervention is magical in this way.

Physical therapists use this technique with stroke patients. They deliberately make the good side and the good movements temporarily restricted with splints or other devices in order to “magically” make the “bad side” better.  If the technique works with stroke patients, it will surely succeed for persons who currently experience Parkinson’s symptoms.

The brain is present, active and intelligent and functional in the “good side” or with the “good movement.” This is where learning can happen – not on the “bad side”.  By “teaching” the good movement to be “bad”, we show the brain how to release that learning, how to release a difficulty just of that exact nature which is transferred automatically over to the “bad side”.

The “bad side” or “bad movement” instantly becomes better without confronting the bad side directly.

  • We do not name the “bad side” or “bad movement” as “wrong” or “bad”.
  • We do not attempt to correct the “bad side” (which is the strategy most people engage).
  • We do not call it to be “wrong” or “stupid”.
  • We do not try to correct it.
  • We do not even think about correcting it.

Neurological diplomacy is an extremely gentle and respectful way of working with the body. That is why it is called Neurological Diplomacy.

In summary, do not declare war on your “bad side” or “bad movement”.  Become diplomatic in your approach. Be respective of your body’s ability to self correct. I will say it one more time. This really is magic at its best.

Probiotic ME-3 Makes Glutathione in Your Gut

Glutathione

Most people with Parkinson’s symptoms have a serious glutathione deficiency. Nasal sprays have been helpful to some people. Intravenous infusions have helped others. A new discovery reveals that glutathione can be made in the gut with the help of an enzyme called Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3. 

Natural Pharmacist Ross Pelton discussed the critical role of Glutathione for people who experience Parkinson’s symptoms during my January 4, 2017 radio show interview. The ME-3 product he discussed is previewed below with an order link for those who wish to start using it. Click on the radio show link below to hear this amazing interview.

Natural Pharmacist Ross Pelton on the Critical Role of Glutathione for Parkinson’s

Probiotic Research

Probiotic research is fast transforming our understanding of human health. Probiotics in general are invaluable for maintaining good health. We’re also learning we need certain strains that produce highly specified health benefits.

One of these strains is Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3. The startling probiotic breakthrough of ME-3 began in 1995. That’s when award-winning microbiologist Marika Mikelsaar, MD, PhD and her team of research scientists isolated the probiotic strain called Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3. This unique strain is able to produce the super antioxidant glutathione. Since then, Dr. Mikelsaar has dedicated herself to researching the numerous benefits of this revolutionary probiotic.

What’s so Important about Glutathione?

Perhaps you’ve heard of glutathione. Every cell in the human body uses glutathione to maintain cellular health. Scientists call it the “Master Antioxidant” and it’s absolutely vital to:

  • Maintain a healthy immune system
  • Support the health of cardiovascular tissue
  • Promote healthy liver function

You need healthy glutathione levels, but it’s very hard to supplement it—some research indicates that glutathione breaks down during digestion. That’s where ME-3 comes in. You supplement with the probiotic. Then the probiotic gets to work, maintaining healthy glutathione levels inside you! It’s a paradigm-changing approach to health. We hope you enjoy learning about this discovery as much as we did.

What Is In A Name?

The brand name Reg´Activ® was created from the words “Active Regeneration.” This expresses what occurs when the patented probiotic Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 remarkably produces and recycles Glutathione, the “Master Antioxidant,” resulting in higher levels of active glutathione functioning in the body for a longer period of time.
