How to Reduce Medication Dosage

“how do I wean myself off medications with out a doctor?”

The question for how to reduce medication dosage was submitted through My Q&A system available on the main blog at www.parkinsonsrecovery.com.  Your doctor prescribed the medications for you in the first place, so you will have to involve them in the process of weaning yourself off of them. The weaning process can take some time, so you will more than likely need your doctor to continue prescribing the medications even though you have made a conscious choice to reduce the dosage.

Many people find reducing the dose very difficult, especially when the reduction that is attempted is to aggressive. Serious side effects can result under such circumstances. The best practice is to reduce the dose gradually and slowly. Give your body plenty of time to adjust to the change.

I think it is always a wise move to involve a compounding pharmacist in helping reduce the dose. They can make medicines that have slightly less in them and monitor how your are doing with the reduction, They will also correspond with your doctor to advise them of the status of your plan to reduce the dosage.

I think it is a smart move to take control of your own recovery plan. Hopefully, your doctor will be supportive of your decision. The people who succeed in their recovery have a full appreciation of the importance of taking full control over their recovery.

What Do the Ice Man and Shaking Have in Common?

Answer: They both suggest therapies that help reverse Parkinson’s Symptoms.
I like these two therapies because you can take control over your recovery yourself.  No prescriptions from doctors are necessary!

Jump Start to Recovery: Healing Parkinsons Disease from the Inside Out

Healing Parkinsons

Having devoted my research program to discovering the factors that cause Parkinson’s disease and the therapies that help reverse its symptoms, I have encouraging news to report. There are indeed many natural therapies that have proven successful in suppressing symptoms. If suppression is your goal, you will be delighted to discover many options are available.

Success with healing Parkinsons requires more than a lifetime commitment to suppressing symptoms day in and day out.  Healing Parkinsons from the inside-out is required. Physical causes must be identified. Traumas must be released. Day to day stresses must become manageable. Toxins have to be eliminated. Family entanglements must be cleared.

In the interest of serving the needs of people who want to heal Parkinson’s from the inside-out, I personally offer a Jump Start to Recovery program which is accessed through phone connections or through your computer using Skype. The Jump Start to Recovery program for September has just been announced.  If you are interested in joining a small group of other persons who are committed to the goal of healing from the inside out, please  join us!

Yes, the live program does not kick off until September. All other programs are full. But the good news is this.  Once you register for the program, you will begin your journey down the road to recovery with access to my weekly meditations, the weekly mindfulness challenges, and access to all of the videos of presentations at the Parkinsons Recovery Santa Fe Summit. The actual Jump Start Program actually lasts a full year!

Affirmation Statement

What follows is an affirmation statement from Michael which I have permission to post
here on the blog.  Thoughts are the primary consideration on the journey down the road to recovery.

Robert Rodgers PhD
Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease

I, Michael, do not have Parkinson’s or the symptoms of Parkinson’s.

I, Michael, have never had Parkinson’s or the symptoms of Parkinson’s.

To those of you who have been praying or even just thinking/wanting/wishing
that I be healed of Parkinson’s or the symptoms of Parkinson’s…
please stop now.

Instead…

please, in any way, shape, or form,
support my commitment to evolve beyond
any conscious or unconscious want, desire, or need
for any limitation whatsoever in this body-mind.

When you do this…
instead of asking that I be healed…
please picture me perfectly healthy, happy, whole and complete now.

Author of
Living Well with Parkinson’s Disease

leading the dance

Trust me on this. Take the time to listen to this program. It will be well worth your time!

Sel Kerans discusses his new book, Leading the Dance: Living well with Parkinson’s Disease, and his own journey on the road to recovery in an open, conversational expose of a five year journey with Parkinson’s disease and the experiences that have inspired the writing of a book that may be helpful, motivational and encouraging for others, especially those newly diagnosed with the condition.

His book has been dedicated to the late Robin Williams and is about overcoming adversity, staying positive and content; focusing on healing, recovery and living well. Leading the dance with an unwelcome stranger called Parkinson’s disease. Sel discusses:

  • What hurdles have you faced?
  • How have you overcome them?
  • Would you consider yourself recovered from Parkinson’s disease?
  • Do you believe it’s possible to recover completely from the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease?
  • You mention in your book some reluctance with medication – what’s been your approach to taking medication over the five years?
  • What resources have been useful for you in learning about alternative approaches to managing the symptoms?

This is a heads up that enrollment for the June class of Jump Start to Recovery has only two (2) enrollments available as of today. Enrollment is limited to 10 participants. It is certainly early to enroll in a June course, but the programs always fill up early. The Early Bird discount is still available

www.jumpstart.parkinsonsrecovery.com

There is no other program like Jump Start to Recovery. The concept is to take control over your own recovery. Once you are in the drivers seat, recovery begins to unfold effortlessly.  The focus of the program is to release and remove all of the reasons why recovery may not be happening for you at the pace and way you want it to unfold.

Causes of Parkinsons Disease

There are many factors that can potentially be the causes of Parkinsons disease. Once you discover the root causes, you are in a position to focus attention on healing the problems that cause the symptoms.

Finding and healing causes lies at the foundation of the Jump Start to Recovery program. The is a good probability that the causes are toxins or infections or trauma or entanglements in family systems (or some combination of these possibilities). What follows is an email I received from Chris who succeeded in identifying a Lyme infection as the cause of his symptoms. His story is a victory we can all celebrate. Chris is truly a pioneer of recovery.

Robert,

I wanted to give you and update. I am now a little over a month in treatment of my Lyme disease. My tremors have decreased a great deal but have not stopped. However the tremors are the only symptoms that still exist. I am no longer stiff and arm swing has returned. Simple tests like tapping my fingers shows that my right side has the same speed as the left. This was not true before, the right side was significantly slower.

I FEEL BETTER.

Last week I stopped feeling tired after the Bicilin shots. We believe the spirilia die off has stopped, meaning we have decimated the bacteria that causes the Lyme.

I start Clear Mind Neurofeedback therapy next week to start rebuilding the lost neurons from the attack of the disease.

I am going to continue the bicilin shots for another three weeks along with vitamin IV’s once a week. I am also detoxing heavy metals.

The bottom line is that it will take some time and patience to recover fully but I am making strong headway.

Chris

What is Wrong with Me?

I recently aired a radio show with guest Ivy Faber, ND, who discussed her approach for ascertaining and treating the cause of chronic illness. Dr. Faber has been my doctor for the past decade, so I am partial to her approach. Why? I have succeeded in reversing whatever symptoms I have experienced over the past 10 years.

Dr. Faber uses a computerized testing approach known as a Bioenergetic Assessment which analyzes a sample of the patient’s saliva. Bioenergetic assessments differ from standard medical testing for many reasons, so I decided to write a book which outlines the differences. The assessment was originally conceived 50 years ago so it is anything but new. Yet, many people are not familiar with this approach to figuring out possible causes of symptoms. Sp, I decided to write a book which explains the assessment approach which has been so beneficial to me and my family.

After months of research and writing. my book, titled What is Wrong with Me: Holistic Health at Its Best, is finally published. Hooray for me!
