How to Improve Balance and Prevent Falls

  • Are you having difficulty maintaining good balance?
  • Have you fallen in the past or fear you may fall in the future? 

I have exciting news for you.

A new, easily accessible resource that addresses these concerns
“head on” is at long last available. My new Walk with Ease and Confidence membership website documents the strategies and “steps” you can take to improve balance and prevent falls. The ideas are presented in the forms of text, clips of interviews from
my radio shows, videos taken at the various Parkinsons Recovery
Summits as well as YouTube videos that address strategies for
maintaining good balance and preventing falls.

Why Did I Spend Six Months Developing this New Resource?

I have hosted hundreds of radio show guests on Parkinsons Recovery radio shows who have discussed amazing strategies and fascinating programs to improve balance and prevent falls.
These suggestions and ideas are all accessible for free.

I realized last year that most people with mobility issues do not know about these solutions. How could this be so? I have hosted hundreds of radio show guests on Parkinsons Recovery radio shows, posted hundreds of blogs and sponsored three international Summits, all of which reveal strategies, techniques and programs to improve balance and prevent falls. Suggestions and practical strategies I have documented over the past decade are, practically speaking, inaccessible. It would take months to locate the information you need to have to improve balance and prevent falls.

Until Today

I have dedicated my time this year to extract audio clips from radio shows, edit videos from Parkinsons Recovery Summits and select posts from my blog that have offered the many effective solutions for improving balance and preventing falls. The content is now organized in one place for easy access.

Here are a few of the topics that are covered in my brand new program:

  • How to Prevent Falling Forward
  • Exercises To loosen Rigidity
  • Practical Ways to Improve Arm Swing
  • How to Improve Your Posture
  • Strategy to Unlock Freezing
  • Strategies to Avoid Freezing
  • A Vitamin that Prevents Falls and Improves Overall Balance
  • How to Hard Wire Your Brain to walk effortlessly
  • How to make dopamine naturally
  • How to prevent falls
  • Mobility Issues Caused by Metal Amalgams, Jewelry and Toxic Exposure

Intranasal Device

Hi Robert

I have come across an intranasal device called Vielight which has three models plus a transcranial model called a Neuro.  Do you know anything about these devices?

They apparently help the body to deal with all manner of problems, incl PD.  There is loads about this on the I/net.

I would be most interested to hear from anyone who has tried this.

Many thanks, as always.


Get Ready to be Dazzled: Natural Remedies for Parkinson’s

Natural Remedies for Parkinson’s

On Parkinsons Recovery Radio this week Richard Melvin discussed how he was influenced by his father’s experience with taking Parkinson’s medications. He decided to take a different approach from his father. Instead of taking prescription medications like his father, Richard conducted an extensive investigation into the research which focused on studying the effectiveness of natural remedies for Parkinson’s. He then proceeded to test these remedies on himself – with great results I might say!

In addition to giving detailed information about specific therapeutic vitamins, minerals, herbs and amino acids, he discussed possible causes of the condition that are currently being investigated by scientists. Click on the link below to hear a recording of his fascinating review on natural remedies for Parkinson’s that, according to research studies, really do make a huge difference.

When you land on the radio show page, be sure to scroll down to the comment section. Rich posted extensive information about the various remedies he discussed with links to the relevant research evidence to support its use for Parkinson’s.

Consulting an Iridologist to Assess Causes of Parkinson’s Symptoms

Hi Robert

It’s me again! I have now seen an Iridologist twice and he has picked up on the spleen, which apparently is implicated in muscle and limb control. My Encyclopedia of Chinese Medicine book says:

“The Spleen, which is related to the stomach, opens into the mouth and controls the muscles and limbs The condition of the spleen is reflected in the lips.”

I just wondered if you or anyone else had any knowledge/experience of this?

I also have to say I found your CBD radio show interview fascinating. I already had some of this from hemp oil, but am keeping it’s use up my sleeve in case all my efforts to find the cause were to fail.

Many thanks for everything you do for us all.


Using CBD for Parkinson’s

My radio show interview with Charlotte, one of the founders of Libre, a company that offers a legal form of CBD made from hemp, has inspired a great deal of interest from listeners in using CBD for  temporary relief from Parkinson’s symptoms.  As a follow-up to the radio show, Sherrie Chastain asked me to post answers to two questions about CBD that she has been frequently asked this past week.

Of course, Sherrie’s suggestions are for informational purposes only. You are  encouraged to consult with your qualified medical professional when it comes to making decisions regarding the use and dosage of any natural supplements such as CBD.

At What Time of the Day Should I Take CBD ?

We recommend CBD be taken first thing in the morning when there is nothing in the stomach, unless there is an acid reflux issue and the amino acids in the hemp seed oil may trigger the acid reflux so use with some food to counteract the stomach acid. Taking CBD on an empty stomach will allow the body to process it faster because it is not metabolizing anything else at that time. It is recommended that one takes 10-15 drops from a 300 MG bottle, which 1 drop is equivalent to 1mg. 

Now, because everyone has a different metabolism, not everyone will get the same results. We recommend waiting 15-30 minutes to see how one feels after taking their drops. The Cancer Institute did a study and concluded that there is no way to take a lethal dose of CBD because it needs to build up in the body to make a reserve that the body can pull from, so it is ok to take more and in some cases more than 10-15 drops will be needed. 

How Often Should CBD be Taken?

This again has to do with metabolism and how much relief you get for how long. If someone takes approximately 12 drops, and they get relief in 30 minutes and it lasts 8 hours, then we know that for that person 12 drops every 8 hours is a perfect dose. 

Since CBD is a cannabinoid and our bodies are cannabinoid deficient, some people will use CBD hoping for a specific result. Then when the CBD goes into the body the endocannabinoid system may actually use it for something that the body feels is more important resulting in the feeling that the CBD is not working, because that particular symptom the user was looking for relief from was not helped. This just means the body needs more cannabinoids because the amount you are consuming is not enough to cover everything needed by the body. The Mayo clinic has a recommendation of 300 mg per day for Parkinson’s sufferers, which in retrospective these sufferers are very extreme cases which is why they are at the Mayo clinic. There are reports of relief from doses of 10 to 15 drops, which provides the data that everyone is different.

Two Fantastic Parkinsons Recovery Radio Shows

Two Parkinsons Recovery radio shows you will want to hear.


I have been looking forward to my radio show interview this week with Bill Hubert and Dwight Roth for several months now. I am here to tell you that my expectations – while high – were all exceeded. If you are determined to grab hold of your recovery program which puts you in the drivers seat you need to listen to my radio show today. You will not be disappointed.

CBD for Parkinson’s

 Parkinsons Recovery Radio shows have covered an amazing variety of options that are helping people reverse Parkinson’s symptoms. Despite the many opportunities for recovery that have emerged over recent years, an obstacle to recovery is not having the energy and stamina it takes to even get started. When you feel “down and out” with little reserve of energy, it is not possible to pursue any of the great options that are helping other people recover their health.


My radio show last week covered an option that offers the opportunity to kick start any recovery initiative. Relief is temporary – as is the case with medications – but reports coming back are encouraging. This new option is CBD made from Hemp.

Do you need to kick start your own recovery program? Check out the replay of last week’s Parkinsons Recovery radio show to get the latest update about a natural option that is legal to purchase and use in all states and countries.

CBD Legalities

Last week I aired a radio interview with Charlotte Clarkson on Parkinsons Recovery Radio. Charlotte is one of the four founders of a new company, Libre, that offers CDB extracted from the Hemp plant which makes it legal to purchase and use in all states.
The radio show prompted a rash of emails and phone calls to the company inquiring about  the legality of their CBD product in light of recent, misleading news stories that were posted on the internet recently. At my request, the company prepared and forwarded the following accounting of legal problems confronted buy some manufacturers of CBD in light of their misleading claims and lack of product integrity.
“We wanted to clear up any misunderstanding that the recent press has caused about CBD legalities with the FDA.
Erroneous information is spreading across the Internet about CBD being made illegal by the FDA. The truth is the FDA is cracking down on companies sending out CBD products that do not really contain CBD.
And the FDA is cracking down on companies saying CBD can heal disease because that claim alone makes CBD a drug and regulated by the FDA, when in reality CBD is a compound that our bodies have become deficient in. Our bodies actually make cannabinoids, see the article at the bottom of this email.
The articles circulating have the agenda to get people to sign a petition, and the title was written to grab attention and get people to read it.
The FDA sent out warning letters to companies that have CBD products that the FDA tested which contained no CBD, so they were warned against that.
Secondly, the letters warned companies that are claiming CBD can heal disease, which by making that claim it puts CBD into the drug category and can now be regulated by the FDA. The FDA warned these companies to stop those marketing practices.
CBD is a compound, like Vitamin C, Amino Acids, and many other nutrients and minerals that we as Americans understand the health benefits, however, we cannot say any of those compounds heal disease.
CBD that is extracted from cannabis is regulated and must be purchased in a medical marijuana state with a medical card. CBD extracted from hemp is legal under H.R 525.
Watch the video for the bill.
This following information can be found at the link below on the FDA website itself.
Notice the first warning on the list has a product called “CBDy CBD Supplement Tincture” with a label that says their product contains 200mg of CBD and when the FDA tested it there was no CBD found in the product.
You can see the actual letters that were sent, and they basically claim since the companies are marketing their product to cure disease since that is what is stated on their websites, then an IND must be filed with the FDA for drug approval.
This is a great article that talks about how the brain makes cannabinoids, so is the FDA going to regulate our brains?

CBD for Parkinson’s

I asked one of the founders of a brand new company that is producing CBD formulated from the Hemp plant a series of questions on Parkinsons Recovery Radio.  This particular show has elicited a great deal of interest in light of the recent research evidence on CBD to treat Parkinson’s symptoms. Here are the questions Charlotte Clarkson answered on the program:

  • Can one overdose on CBD?
  • How does one determine the optimal dose with respect to Parkinson’s?
  • How often are the quality tests performed (i.e. lab checks for toxins and such)?
  • Which product is recommended for Parkinson’s?
  • What is the cost?
  • Have you had very many individuals who have had any allergic reactions to the substance?
  • How does Elixinol compare to your product?
  • Is there any evidence that taking CBD over a prolong period of time will aid in re-generation of nerve  tissue or is it strictly similar to a pharmaceutical agent such that it only provides temporary relief with no healing properties?
  • What is the difference between hemp seed oil and hemp CBD oil?
  • What is THC? Does it assist in reducing Parkinson’s symptoms?
  • Does CBD contain THC?
  • Organic hemp oil is available in a number of different outlets. What is the
    difference between organic hemp oil and Hemp CBD?
  • Does taking CBD make you sleepy or high?

Hear Charlotte answer all of these questions by visiting the replay play of my interview with her last week:
