Parkinson’s Disease New Treatment

Parkinson’s Disease New Treatment

Below is a play by play account of how one man who currently experiences the symptoms of Parkinson’s receives tremendous therapeutic advantage by intentionally making his “good side” worse. This Parkinson’s disease new treatment is counter-intuitive to be sure.

  1. Why in the world would anyone want to make their “good side” worse when they already have one “bad side”?
  2. Wouldn’t you then be straddled with two “bad sides” and not just “one bad” side?

The answer to both questions is “no“. Check out my previous post on “Neurological Diplomacy” to understand why.

This Parkinson’s disease new treatment costs absolutely nothing and insures you are in complete control.

  • No one is doing anything to you.
  • No therapists are required or necessary.
  • This Parkinson’s Disease new treatment is free. 

The example below applies the principle of Neurological Diplomacy to a trembling right arm and hand.  The account was emailed to me by an individual who prefers to remain anonymous.  What follows is the description he emailed to me which I have liberally edited.  He wanted to get this information out to others who experience symptoms of Parkinson’s disease because the approach has been so helpful to him personally.

First of all, I only do this after my cold morning shower when I am already moaning and trembling from the cold water. My body feels energized then too. Other times of the day I do not do this technique. Admittedly it looks weird for someone else to see, so I do this when no one else is watching me.  I’d be too self-conscious to do it in front of an audience. Also, I need high energy to do this technique.

After my cold shower (which is the time of the day when I have high energy)  I make my “good” left hand and arm and “good” left side shake and shudder like the dickens out of control. I literally act like a crazy man. I would not want anyone to see me doing this. They would think I was insane.

I do this maybe 10 to 20 seconds maximum. My thought process goes something like this:

“OK body if you want to see a tremble I will SHOW you a real tremble. You think that pathetic tremble on the right side is something?  Let me show you a real shudder and shake. “

I try to make the left side (my “good side) feel just like the right side. In this space –

  • I am out of control.
  • There is no way to fix this.
  • I am totally frustrated.
  • I am completely disabled and cannot function at all since both sides are trembling to beat the band.
  • Then, I stop, dry myself and dress.

Here is the good news. I have had less or no trembling on the right side (my “bad side”) as the months go by. The length of time with no trembling is increasing.

The outcome varies. Sometimes I get poor results. Usually I get some results. It might be seconds or minutes of no trembling on the right side, but it is usually longer. Sometimes, and increasingly so, all morning until later afternoon, I have little or zero trembling on my right (“bad”) side.

That is the dramatic version that I would never do in public… something that I have made a daily routine as a finish my morning shower. You certainly do not have to be nude to do this. Loose clothing works just as well.

I also practice a scaled down version during the day when I sometimes imitate the right side tremble on the left side with the intention of getting a frustrated feeling about it. My intention is to help my brain work on a correction.

Sometimes I do this “homeopathically” where one cannot even see what I am doing. Or, I create the conditions in my imagination. You do not even see my tremoring on my “good” side.

Admittedly, such efforts do not work as well as my morning shower routine. But each time I do it – bold and brazen or just in the imagination – I always feel currents and shudders along the spine that feel to me like I am “waking up.” Usually, I get seconds or minutes of less or no trembling in the right arm. Intuitively, using such intuition as I have, all this feels to me like the very best thing I am doing for my Parkinson’s symptoms.


Why not give this Parkinson’s Disease new treatment some serious attention? There is nothing to lose and everything to gain. Best of all, this Parkinson’s disease new treatment has no side effects. The only expectation is improvement on some level.

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.

Treatment for Parkinson’s: Natural. Safe. No Side Effects. You are in Control.

Treatment for Parkinson’s

 I receive the following question every day: “What is the best treatment for Parkinson’s”?
The truthful answer is that the best treatment for Parkinson’s depends on what
is causing the symptoms. There is one treatment for Parkinson’s, however, that
promises to result in positive gains on some level:Transformation of beliefs
about healing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.


I have permission to share the following essay which speaks to the core of this issue.
It was written by Rev. Eva Gabrielle. In my view the essay is well worth copying and posting in a place that you see every day as a reminder of the important role beliefs
play in our healing.


“Illness is a curious thing. We can die from it, or learn to live through it.

You may think me crazy, but I think we pick our illnesses. We choose to slowly exit, or stay and learn how to live well.

I am choosing how to live well. Some day I will be done with PD, I will declare I am well and say I was cured by this or that.

Belief is what cures us anyway. We may take the best supplements and medicines in the world, but if we do not believe we can be healed, we won’t be. On the other hand, we may chant for 3 years off and on, decide we are cured and we are because we believe we are.

Or eat chocolate ants, and declare ourselves cured. Then we can write a book about it. People will eat chocolate ants and still be sick. Because of that they will declare you a fraud.

Look at how many people have gone after John Pepper!!

I was a New Thought minister for 24 years. Unity minister. I taught Science of mind and how to work it. It continues to be a fascinating study and experiment. I don’t have any sculptures nor painting to show for my work, but I know I have touched people’s hearts.

I am getting bored with having PD. I don’t want to go to doctors anymore.I really don’t want to take meds for it. But I am afraid to quit carb/leva 10/1000 x4 a day.

Stress and Trauma

I just want you to know that I had previously started to recover from Parkinson’s because of the work I have been doing about letting go of the stress and trauma in my body by using Louise L Hay method. I’m following her book” You Can Heal Your Body“.

I have noticed quite a significant reduction in my symptoms already. They’re not completely gone but they are reducing and I am definitely on the road to recovery. I am sure your program will help even more. I just know that I will be symptom-free! I have no doubt about it.

So thank you for your jump start to Recovery program.

My vision that I hold in my thoughts are having you interview me on your radio show and I am sharing on how I  recovered from Parkinsons.. And the other vision I have is me telling my neurologist I no longer have Parkinson’s and him giving me a score of 0 on the Parkinson’s scale.



Constipation Treatments


You know, your writings simply amaze me.
I am suffering from my PD, but still
unmedicated. But it’s getting me down
quite seriously, and I need to find some
relief from what’s happening.

Your article on constipation was quite
interesting, especially since a good BM is
about the only thing that gives me a bit
of some sort of relief. I am constipated
nearly all the time now, and the stools
are definitely not dark brown, and they
are huge in size. My doctor has me on 4
Ultra Meg (2 in morning, 2 evening) but
they are not doing the job, so I take a
couple of ExLax too, and some coarse
Metamucial, finally getting a BM to occur.

My body is definitely suffering from a
nutrient deficiency. My muscles are atrophying.
It makes no difference if I try to build
them up or not. This atrophying has been
going on for years, way before PD tremors



Constipation is certainly “in your face”
right now. Great! Your body is giving you
rich information about what it needs to
recover and move on to the next stage.

There is a quick, temporary fix which
involves taking generous doses of vitamin C.
This certainly works miracles for me with
this problem. I suggest that you do not
rely on vitamin C in pill form, but consider
the options of other delivery forms.
I take vitamin C in a concentrated powder

Vitamin C is an anti-oxident, so taking
generous doses works miracles for other
reasons. Consult with a knowledgeable
nutritional counselor to make sure you do
not take too little or too much.

There is also a long term fix. Your body is
sending you strong signals that the food you
are eating is problematic. If the body likes
the food we give it, the food goes down easily
and comfortably. It also exits smoothly and
without complication or pain.

You may very well be allergic to some of the
food you eat. A smart place to look is to
consider the possibility that foods
you have eaten your entire life (perhaps
dairy or wheat or potatoes or who knows what)
are creating strong allergic reactions. Such
problems may not have been present at an earlier
age, but they inevitably intensify as we age.

Out vitality and energy is derived from
live food, not from dead food. Most of
the packaged and processed foods found in a
typical grocery store has no life in it

I am going to be bold in my following
assertion, but I know it is dead right
(like the pun?).

Begin ingesting live food every day.
You will get relief from constipation.
You will begin to feel better.

Oh, and this promise comes with a life time

How long does it take to begin feeling better
after you begin to eat live food? It could be
weeks or months, but I personally detect a marked
shift in my own energy a few hours after eating
live food. Instead of working 8 hours a day, I
am able to work 14 hours! Now that is a difference
that makes a difference.

How do you find fresh food in the winter time?
Try your local food coop. I purchase fresh
vegetables at the local food co-op and juice them
as often as possible. My rule is to purchase fresh
vegetables that have as many different colors as
possible. Some stores will also juice veggies for
you which is very convenient.

Once you begin eating live food on a regular basis
you will not have to use any other aids to
relieve the constipation. The body can resolve
the problem of constipation, but you have
to give it a little help to heal. The solutions
will only have staying power if you make it a habit
to eat live food every day and stop eating foods
you are allergic to.

The muscle weakness may be related to a protein
deficiency. A consultation with a nutritional
counselor might be very helpful with your
present challenge.

May you be free of constipation agony soon and
feeling better and better every day.

Hydrate for Health: How?

Dehydration is a natural consequence of aging.The important question turns on what we can do about it.

I have recruited the one man I know can answer any question you might have about dehydration, Dr. Jaroslav Boublik, Ph.D. There are many smart things you can do to reverse the problems of dehydration. Jaroslav knows them all.

Dr. Boublik is the co-developer of the Aquas, a homeopathic remedy for dehydration that is currently used by many people with the symptoms of Parkinson’s. For further information about the Aquas, visit:

Aqua Hydration Therapy and Parkinson’s Disease


In terms of the aqua hydration therapy, does that include putting your arms in a bathtub full of water for about 20 minutes s a day?  What is an ideal aqua hydration therapy and how many times does it have to be done on a weekly basis?  Is this therapy one of your top 3 recovery mechanisms?



The Aqua hydration therapy recommended by naturopath doctor John Coleman, ND (who successfully recovered from Parkinson’s in the 1990’s) is a homeopathic treatment known as the Aquas. Dr. Coleman attributes 60% of his full recovery to  the Aquas.

The Aquas are a combination of essential oils and Bach Flower essences that are designed to reset the mechanism used by the body to hydrate cells. As we age, this mechanism begins to break down.

You can find more information about the Aquas by visiting:

It is recommended that you take the Aquas each week day, then take a break on the weekends. This approach insures that the homeopathic signalling system remains potent.

I suggest that you download and read the article series on hydration written by one of the developers or the Aquas, Dr. Jaroslav Boublik, Ph.D. He is an international expert on the importance of good hydration for health and wellness. You can download his article which discusses the symptoms of dehydration from the January 2011 Parkinsons Recovery magazines for free by visiting:

Neurons are the juiciest cells in the body. If you are not well hydrated, there is no doubt in my mind that neurological symptoms will result. Many people report feeling a great deal better when their bodies become better hydrated. The better hydrated you are, the better you will feel.   For any chronic illness I would put  oxygen and water at the top of the list as therapies that are essential to health and wellness.
