Use This Fantastic Technique to Improve Balance

Have Issues with Balance and Mobility?

Here Is A Simple And Effective Strategy

 Watch this 2 minute YouTube video posted by Steve who has Parkinson’s symptoms for a tip that:
  • Is simple to do
  • Can be done right now
  • Requires no practice
  • Involves no training program
  • Is free.

This is by far the best idea I have heard about in a long time that helps improve balance and enhances mobility. I suspect it is effective because it opens up energetic meridians throughout the body that have led to poor posture and drained your energy.

Why Recovery from Parkinson’s Stumbles


I am proud to celebrate the dozens of therapies that are helping more and more people reverse the symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. There are so many great options out there that did not exist five years ago.

If so many great options exist, why do not more people celebrate a reduction and reversal of their Parkinson’s symptoms? Why does recovery from Parkinson’s stumble for so many? My answer: People are gripped by a stranglehold of fear that their symptoms are destined to get worse. The process is “vicious” because symptoms are in your face day in and day out.

Take tremors for example. Tremors can calm down from time to time when stress is under control but they usually reappear.  The reaction to this seemingly never ending cycle is all too familiar.

  1. This tremor is driving me crazy. It is high time for it to disappear.
  2. The next day comes. The tremor persists.
  3. After many days, weeks and months you conclude you are “stuck” with this awful, nasty symptom for life.
  4. After all, this is what seemingly knowledgeable people have told you. Perhaps it is true after all.

What is the problem with this all too familiar pattern? It winds up supporting and sustaining the tremor. I suggest a very different reaction which can break this vicious cycle rather than sustain it.

Instead of viewing the tremor as the “bad guy” in your life, accept the tremor (or other symptoms) as the “good guy.”  Instead of wishing the tremor to vanish, wish it to flourish. Set an intention to allow your body to shake, rattle and roll if that is what your body needs to do in the moment.

Now, I suspect this recommendation must sound crazy to you. A tremor is your body’s way of getting your attention. It is the body’s natural method of releasing trauma and stress. When you suppress a tremor, the energy of trauma gets stuck in your body and sticks to your cells like glue.

When you view a tremor (or other symptoms) as the “bad guy” you  are giving your body a nasty message that it is broken.  But, it not broken now and never has been. Your body is working perfectly. It is just telling you something you do not want to hear or accept.

Treat a tremor (and other symptoms) as a natural healing response which is nudging you to set in motion new lifestyle habits.

  • Instead of resisting, why not make the changes?
  • Embrace new habits that you know in your mind, heart and soul are necessary to heal.

The best way to reverse the vicious cycle that leads to feeling worse is to acknowledge symptoms as the “good guys.” In so doing, you honor and acknowledge the body’s sacred ability to heal. Treat your body as broken and worthless and it will respond accordingly just as you do when treated with disrespect.

The Secret to Healing Parkinson’s

My research over the past decade has identified dozens of therapies that help people reverse the symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. Therapies that
show resounding success for some people fizzle for others.

The surprise discovery is that many therapies help. Great.  OK. What do these therapies all have in common?

My answer may surprise you. Therapies that help people heal from neurological difficulties offer ways to settle and calm the sympathetic nervous system. This opens the opportunity
for the parasympathetic nervous system to function as designed.

We all exert control over our sympathetic nervous system. When we confront a hungry bear on the wilderness trail while hiking, we activate an instant rush of adrenaline to address the challenge.  Our response may be to fight, freeze or flight.

When the sympathetic nervous system is constantly churning and, for some with Parkinson’s symptoms, churning its gears on overdrive, the parasympathetic nervous system becomes overwhelmed. Both are necessary for the body function and survive.

The challenge for people with Parkinson’s symptoms is that the sympathetic nervous system is almost always dominating the parasympathetic  nervous system. In other words, the good guy here (the parasympathetic nervous system) is smothered by the bad guy (the sympathetic nervous system).

How does this play out moment to moment? People who experience Parkinson’s symptoms often have spurts of anxiety, panic attacks or are continuously stressed out with unfounded worries, unrealistic fears or negative thinking that scares the heck out of them. The churning of anxiety pumps out the hormones like adrenaline that stirs excitation throughout the body – so much so that the nervous
system is overstimulated.

Over the long haul deep ruts are carved in the neural pathways which eventually causes the myelin sheaths that cover and protect them to thin. The protective insulation is compromised. A type of “shorting out” occurs just as an electrical circuit short circuits when the insulation covering on the raw wires is exposed.

What then do all of the therapies that help people reverse their symptoms have in common? One therapy or another helps calm down the sympathetic nervous system so that it is not continuously running on overdrive. A body that is continuously running at a furious pace never has an opportunity to rest and rejuvenate. The resting state (the parasympathetic state which is automatic and effortless) gets a little tender loving support
when the sympathetic nervous system is quieted.

The bottom line is this. If you find yourself being nervous and anxious most of the day and night your body will never get the opportunity to rejuvenate and heal itself. Best to let off the steam of the sympathetic nervous system by embracing a therapy that helps reduce its intensity.

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.
