Overwhelmed by the Dozens of Natural Options that Make Recovery Possible?

The good news is that dozens of natural therapies offer relief from Parkinson’s symptoms. When I launched my search in 2004, I thought there would be a handful. How wrong I was!

The bad news is that the multitude of options have created serious problems for people searching for solutions to their symptoms. It is nearly impossible to wade through the 270 replays of my radio show interviews to find therapies that can help, much less the hundreds of posts on my blog.

Many people begin a search for solutions to their symptoms but are overwhelmed by the massive body of resources I have created.

I have now solved this problem by creating a series of online courses focused on specific symptoms and themes. Instant access to the content is available when you register.

Shut Down Anxiety

Everyone who experiences the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease is well aware that anxiety fuels their symptoms. When stress is brought under control and you shut down anxiety, symptoms become far less troublesome.

Everyone also knows that medicines and supplements have the potential to suppress symptoms in the short run. Unfortunately, they offer little promise of long lasting effectiveness. What in the world can deliver on this promise? Are there any natural solutions out there?

My answer is yes. A wide variety of very effective methods to shut down anxiety exist. They are previewed one by one in the Parkinsons Recovery online Shut Down Anxiety course. Classes are rolled out over a three month period. Click the link below to register.

Discount: Enter the coupon code “succeed” on the shopping cart to take advantage of a 50% tuition discount.

Shut Down Anxiety introduces methods, strategies and techniques that have been shown to quiet down and calm anxiety. They turn down the volume of the overactive flight-fight sympathetic nervous system that inflames neurological difficulties. I did not invent these techniques. They have been extracted and simplified from an extensive body of contributions by experienced practitioners and researchers..

There is no doubt that using these techniques provides relief from anxiety. Every little bit of help counts for something.

  • The content of my Shut Down Anxiety course introduces natural, self administered therapies and techniques that achieve relief that is long lasting rather than temporary.
  • It focuses on ways that cut to the core of shutting down what drives you crazy with relentless anxiety.
  • A bonus of the course is a download of my book Seven Secrets to Healing which covers the basics for how healing occurs from the inside out.

What sustains and inflames anxiety is unresolved trauma whether physical, mental or emotional. None of us can ever change or erase traumas of the past. Sometimes it is impossible to know why we are so anxious all the time.

Techniques and therapies will be covered in the course which bring to the surface the underlying sources of anxiety that are entirely unknown and release their grip on us. These  highly effective methods make it possible to release, remove and detach their debilitating impact. A welcome relief from symptoms follows.

Course participants can connect to the online course platform any time of the day or night using their phones or computers to get all of questions answered about any of the methods, ideas and techniques I will discuss.

I am personally available as your instructor to answer any questions that come up.

How to Tame Tremors

A decade of hosting 250 guests on Parkinsons Recovery Radio has made it possible to document a  variety of natural treatments to tame tremors that have proven successful. They fall into a various categories including herbs, certain foods, CBD oil, tinctures, ketone esters, light and sound therapies, energy medicine and many home made remedies.

Click Here for Registration and Immediate Access the Tame Tremors Online Course

Why Did I Develop The New Tame Tremors Course?

It is surprisingly helpful to embrace natural methods that tame tremors. Unchecked they sustain unrelenting stress. When we are unable to reduce the intensity of stress, tremors always get worse. The cycle is endless unless checked. The vicious cycle is familiar to everyone.

        1. Tremors cause reoccurring stress.
        2. Stress inflames the tremors.
        3. Taming tremors helps reverse this vicious cycle.

The challenge for members of my global Parkinsons Recovery audience is that natural treatments for tremors are scattered all over the place, buried in my many thousands of blog posts and replays from 10 years of my many Parkinsons Recovery radio show interviews.

My new online course rolls out dozens of natural therapies that have been successful for persons to tame their tremors. It organizes, explains and updates the most successful strategies, therapies and treatments that have been reported by persons who themselves experience tremors.

Some of the methods have just emerged over the past decade. Some have been practiced for centuries. We do not have yet a great deal of evidence on their effectiveness, but early reports are very encouraging. I want everyone to know about these new developments.

Traumas Cause Anxieties. Anxieties Inflame Tremors.
Anxiety has a profound impact on making tremors so much worse. One of the most successful strategies that tame tremors is to shut down anxiety.

Shaking Tames Tremors.
Vibration offers relief from symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.

Breathing The Right Way Tames Tremors.
If your cells have a deficiency of oxygen, doesn’t it make good sense they will shake, rattle and roll to get your attention?

Emotional Reactions Aggravate Tremors.
Emotional Reactions happen when our reaction to a situation is “over the top.” An intense and fiery emotional response is not justified by the circumstances.

Family Entanglements Sabotage Efforts to Tame Tremors.
Family Entanglements occur when we take on the suffering, pain and disease of another family member out of love.

Energy Psychology.
Energy psychology is a novel approach embraced by some psychologists who use muscle testing to identify and clear reasons for conditions like tremors.

Essential Oils.
Essential oils have a soothing effect on the body’s neurological system which helps tame tremors.

Herbal Remedies.
Certain herbal remedies can tame tremors. You have likely never even heard about some of them.

Home Remedies for Tremors
Macrobiotic Guru Warren Kramer offers highly effective (and little known) home remedies that tame tremors

Ketone esters have been available commercially only since 2019. They are a natural source of energy for the brain which can tame tremors

Photobiomodulation (Light Therapy).
Research reports promising possibilities for photobiomodulation as a therapy that offers relief from neurological conditions

Power of the Mind.
You have everything you need to tame tremors and always have: Actualizing the endless power of your mind.

Tai Chi.

What Really Matters

What really matters when it comes down to a successful program of recovery?

What needs to happen to celebrate a reversal of neurological symptoms?

Results of a Parkinsons Recovery survey answer these questions. What survey you ask?

Each year during the holiday season I send out a one question survey to members of the global Parkinsons Recovery audience. The question asked on the survey was:

Please list below natural therapies that have helped you experience relief from symptoms of Parkinson’s disease

I am always surprised and awed with the variety and diversity of therapies reported to have been helpful. When I examined results of the survey, I asked myself the question – what is the common theme here?

The answer quickly became crystal clear. Therapies reported to have been useful in reversing Parkinson’s symptoms turn down the volume of the sympathetic nervous system (which inflames symptoms) and switch on the parasympathetic (which soothes symptoms).

There is no single approach, method or therapy that flips the switch.  Each person discovers their own unique way to make this happen for themselves. Dozens of therapies are reported to have been useful in this regard as reflected in my survey. They are now thoroughly listed and documented in my online course What Really Matters that rolls out a comprehensive explanation and review of each recovery  option. Click on the What Really Matters Link below to register and take advantage of the 7 day free trial.

What Really Matters

While there are a surprising number of natural therapies that help, I wanted you to know about several in particular. Which ones among the many natural therapies will offer relief from your Parkinson’s symptoms? Consider the following possibilities.

Tumeric
Turmeric helps prevent depletion of dopamine, reduces oxidative stress and reverses inflammation

Magnesium
Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant which helps address issues with rigidity and constipation.

Lion’s Mane Mushrooms
Lion’s Mane Mushrooms show welcome benefits as a therapy to reverse symptoms

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF)
One reason detoxes are unsuccessful is compromised circulation. PEMF is an ideal therapy to address this problem.

Passion Flower
Some persons who experience neurological symptoms report Passion Flower has been helpful

What Really Matters

Fasting
Fasting is a natural way for the body to produce ketones which are the most efficient fuel for our brains.

Eliminate Dairy
Research consistently reports that eating dairy is a significant predictor of who experiences symptoms of Parkinson’s.

CBD Oil
Research studies report that CBD helps to shut down anxiety. Once anxiety is brought under control, relief of symptoms follows.

Light Therapy – Photobiomodulation
Reports from persons who experience symptoms of Parkinson’s indicate light therapy has a beneficial impact on symptoms for 9 out of 10 users

Fava Beans
Aunt Bean has formulated a home made fava bean tincture that offers welcome relief from her Parkinson’s symptoms. Here is the recipe so you can prepare it for yourself.

Food as Medicine
Do you insist on only eating organic food? Great, but guess what? Eating organic is not enough. The food necessary for cellular healing is actually not available or sold in most food outlets.

N-Acetylcysteine (NAC)
N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is a natural anti-oxidant that boosts glutathione levels which are usually dangerously low in persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Low Dose Naltrezone (LDN)
Low Dose Naltrezone (LDN) is a prescription medicine that boosts the immune system. It is reported by some persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s to have been beneficial.

Rock Solid Walking

Are you interested in rock solid walking? Are you sometimes anxious because of a fear you might …

  • Freeze
  • Trip
  • Stumble
  • Fall

When these fears rear their ugly head the possibility of falling, freezing, stumbling and tripping becomes even more likely. Ugh! Many practical solutions to mobility challenges do exist. I have documented what people with Parkinson’s report helps their walking to become rock solid.

Click on the image below to register:. rock solid walking

Rock Solid Walking Online Course

Selected for inclusion in this comprehensive online course are the most useful tips, strategies, therapies and suggestions I have documented during the past decade and a half. Many are taken from the wisdom of guests on Parkinsons Recovery Radio.

I want everyone to know about the many proven techniques, therapies and strategies that offer the promise of reducing the troubling consequence of falling, freezing and tripping. It is high time to stop worries about having to make visits to hospital emergency rooms because of broken bones, sprains or muscle tears.

The strategies, suggestions and tips for walking have been taken from the wisdom of two primary sources: individuals with Parkinson’s symptoms and knowledgeable health care professionals. Radio show guests reveal how they have succeeded in improving their own gait, walking pace and overall stability.

Physical therapists and other health care professions who work with persons with Parkinson’s symptoms  offer practical suggestions that they use with their patients. .

 

Ease of mobility is derailed when there is a disconnection between the mind and the body. This course covers how to restore this connection.

The Fundamentals
Discover tried and true strategies that make it possible for walking to be balanced, centered, stable and safe every time.

Feet
Feet need to be flexible and malleable for walking to be rock solid. Locations of rigidity in the bottom of your feet give important clues about why mobility is compromised.

Vision
Sometimes a limitation or obstruction of peripheral vision accounts for mobility challenges. Other times it is a question of where you look when walking.

Grounding
A reason for falling, tripping and freezing is a lack of grounding. The human energy field that supports the physical body is top heavy. Discover ways to balance and center the energy field.

Exercises
Simple exercises are discussed that address specific problems with mobility including poor posture, rigidity, freezing and shuffling.

Mindful Walking
Studies report that becoming mindful promotes walking that is rock solid. Become totally aware of the “now” experience rather than regretting the past or worrying about the future.

How to Kick Start Mobility
Practical Suggestions for How to Kick Start Mobility Challenges

Sound Therapy
Research shows that listening to music that has well defined beats and rhythms facilitates a steady and reliable pace of walking.

Light Therapy
Light can have an immediate effect on effortless mobility. For some people, wearing glasses that allow a specific color to dominate vision shifts walking from being awkward to effortless.

The online Rock Solid Walking course is accessible using any phone or computer.

Click on the image below to register:. rock solid walking

Spinal Decompression
Problems with mobility can be caused by compression in the spine which can be corrected with a series of chiropractic adjustments.

Break Down Each Movement into its Component Parts
Any movement can be broken down into its component parts which make up the whole. Focus on the parts – not the movement taken as a whole. .

Solution for Tick Tock Walking
Re-train your body to remember how to walk with evenly paced, evenly distanced strides.

Stochastic Resonance Therapy
A new invention from Germany adds a critical feature to vibration therapy by delivering the frequency of the vibrations randomly.

Chakra Healing
Watch a demonstration of a brief chakra healing using the voice to emit sounds that open up the energy flow through chakras.

Solution for Rigidity
Magnesium is a muscle relaxant and one of the best therapies that offer relief from rigidity and stiffness..

Underlying Cause of Gait Difficulties
What really lies as the foundation of mobility challenges? Answer: Trauma locks up the muscles and freezes flexibility

Dance Your Way to Success
The Tango – among other dances – helps maintain balance and centeredness. It is also fun and energizing.

Issues with Walkers
Are you considering using a walker to prevent falls? Select one that supports good posture rather than destroying it.

Access Memories to Facilitate Rock Solid Walking
When struggling with large or small movements, recall an activity of the past that involved doing a similar movement effortlessly.

Yoga
Consistent practice of yoga helps make rock solid walking a reality

One Vitamin that Helps Maintain Balance and Prevent Falls
You may need to take more than you realize to get the benefit expected!

Take a Giant Leap for Recovery

Take a Giant Leap for Recovery
With 14 Small Steps

After years of intensive research I have documented dozens of natural therapies that offer relief from the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. When I began my search I expected to find several good therapies at best. The good news is that there are many.

So many in fact, that many members of my audience have become overwhelmed and frustrated with the options. More and more people are asking …

  1. Where do I start?
  2. Which options are right for me?
  3. Which therapies offer the promise of relief from my symptoms?

Click on the image below to enroll in Giant Leap for Recovery 

What has happened is unexpected. Many people do not even know where to start or how. The first step is often never taken due to confusion and frustration over the overload of information about what works and what does not work. Surfing the internet will make your hair fall out! There is just too much information out there for any single person to digest.

I have thoroughly documented these therapies in Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease. The good news is that most therapies do offer relief to one extent or another. Some people have better success with some therapies than others. The bad news is that most offer temporary relief.

  • What steps can be taken to achieve long lasting relief?
  • How can you heal from the inside-out rather than paying lots of money for therapies that offer temporary relief at best?

There is no single therapy, action or habit that does the trick. Many people seek this type of solution and for good reason. We all want to feel better right now. Why wait? Suppressing symptoms can offer temporary relief for some people.

The key can achieving sustained relief from Parkinson’s symptoms is to put the  sympathetic nervous system in the back seat and the parasympathetic nervous system in the driver’s seat. Medicines do not accomplish this, nor do supplements. Simple, easy to do steps must be taken that can offer long lasting relief from symptoms.

This insight has inspired the development of this online course, Giant Leap for Recovery. Is it possible to experience a leap in recovery by embracing a single approach? My answer is no.

One of the reasons more people do not get well is that they are forever looking for that one solution that will fix everything. Such a one stop “fix” to the problem does not exist now nor will it ever exist in the future.

Long lasting relief from symptoms results from taking small steps, one by one. At the end of the journey, you can look back at the starting point and celebrate the progress that has made it possible to take a giant leap in your recovery.

America succeeded in being the first nation to land and walk on the moon by breaking down the problem into tiny parts to be solved. This remarkable feat was not accomplished with a single blast or one amorphous effort. It was accomplished by taking small steps, one by one. Recall the words spoken by Neil Armstrong when he first stepped on the moon:

That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

Giant Leap for Recovery Course Details

This online course is offered on a spectacular course platform that presents information for each class in the form of videos, audios, text descriptions and downloads. Everything you need for each class is found in the same place. I have set up enrollment with a free 7 day trial so you can see how the course platform functions. Your credit card is not charged until the 7 day trial ends. Enrollment can always be before the trial period concludes.

Steps are rolled out every five days. The design invites you to explore and implement recommendations for each of the 14 steps. You can embrace each of the steps yourself. None of them require assistance medical professional or the purchase therapies.

Now while you can access the course materials any time of the day or night – you are also invited to always contact me with any follow-up questions or issues that have arisen. I am here to support your journey down the road to recovery. My intention is to offer all the support you need to establish a successful journey down the road to recovery.

Videos, audios, downloads and explanations of the steps are included with each class.

The giant leap is now completed, I want to thank you for this approach. I was surprised by the result, it gave me more hope in finding my own reason of this disease. I am still working on it, after seven years of Parkinson, I only have 2 Sinemet (100/25) per day.

I try to minimize the medication and find a way to heal inside.

Thank you for your support.

All the best for you and your family

Cheers Manon

What are the 14 Steps?

I am not going to tell you, nor explain them in advance. Really you say? Really.

The entire point of Giant Leap for Recovery is to make implementation of each step easy, interesting and fun. I think it best that no one looks ahead at what is coming. After all, taking the challenge of recovery moment to moment is one of the keys to reducing stress! Fixing yourself in the future is one sure fire way to create unnecessary stress. Recovery depends on reducing stress, not inflaming it!

I do want to be clear that all of the steps can be taken with the resources you have available. This has nothing to do with suggesting you purchase and/or take certain supplements or seek out therapists of one type or another. For you to be in the driver’s seat, you need to be in full control of your recovery and not rely on others to fix you.

I can report that you are never going to be able to guess what the 14 steps entail. I am quite sure you have never thought about the usefulness to recovery to many of them. The purpose of each step taken as a whole is to provide the foundation for recovery that can be sustained over the long run.

Natural Sleep Remedy

Here is an awesome suggestion from a member of my audience.

I recently started taking at bedtime,

1capsule of Magnesium Citrate,
1 capsule mucuna
1 capsule Bosweliia extract

I was diagnosed with PD in 2013 and I know what off means, and it is how I usually wake up. But with these capsules, I wake up almost like my old self. It is truly remarkable.

I would be interested to know if there is some way to share this with others.

If you have some enthusiastic members with open minds, this might help a lot of sufferers.

Why Toxins Stick to Our Body Like Super Glue

Many persons who currently experience symptoms of Parkinsons are terribly  frustrated. They have determined through one diagnostic test or another that their body contains toxins – perhaps a heavy metal or pesticide or herbicide or…

Research on Parkinson’s symptoms has revealed many toxins are the culprits that wreak havoc on neurological systems. It does not take much to upset neurons. Their sensitivity is off the charts.

This frustration stems from various attempts to get rid of the toxins. Valiant efforts are made. Nothing seems to do the trick. Have you experienced this frustration?

Perhaps you listen to one of my radio shows with a prestigious researcher who recommends herbs as the ideal detox.

  1. You buy the herbs.
  2. You take the herbs.
  3. The recommended treatment is engaged.

Alas, the toxins continue to stick to your tissues like super glue.
Diagnostic assessments reveal the guilty toxin is still present in dangerous
levels. It does not get more frustrating than this, eh?

Most people who follow my work are dedicated to the end goal of recovery. They do not give up with the first therapy. More investigation is launched. A second detox protocol is begun. This one involves chelation under the close supervision of their doctor.

After pursuing the chelation protocol to its logical end, the toxicity remains. Toxins have a stubborn resilience. They appears to love hanging out in your body.

You too are stubborn. You continue to embrace one detox protocol after another. After all, there are other protocols and other doctors. Still, results do not shift. The toxins refuse to budge. Frustration begins to sizzle like a steak on a backyard grill in summertime.

Nothing Gets Rid of My Toxins

  • You certainly did not extend an invitation for the toxin to invade your body.
  • You certainly did not marry the toxin.

The toxins are just like a foreign enemy that refuses to surrender. Why? They are fighting furiously to defend their own territory which, of course, happens to be inside your body.

Why in the world does the highly toxic substance insist on invading your body
when they were not invited and certainly not welcome and worse have become
encapsulated? The answer to this million dollar question turns on a connection that is a mystery to most people.

Toxins and trauma go hand in hand like two love birds on their honeymoon.
Toxins do stick to the cells like super glue until  trauma (which is also
trapped at the cellular level) is released.

Agent Orange

The connection between toxins and trauma is profound. I will focus on one strong connection to explain the connection: exposure to Agent Orange (a deadly toxin) and the neurological symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease.

The body has an intricate system for eliminating toxic substances. It retains what is needed and throws out what is unnecessary or harmful. If there is a massive
exposure of a toxin, it will take the body time – sometime years – to release all
the nasty chemicals that will eventually devastate the organs and tissues.

Why is it then that some soldiers who were exposed to Agent Orange during the Vietnam war are just now showing the effects of that exposure as seen through neurological symptoms, cancers or other illnesses? Wasn’t 40 years sufficient time for the body to do its job? Not when trauma was present at the time of the exposure.

The Vietnam War (as with any war) was a horrifying experience for all military personnel who participated. Trauma was not experienced for a brief minute as is the case with an automobile accident. It was experienced throughout the duration of their service which was one long year.

When a soldier was exposed to Agent Orange, they were functioning under highly traumatic conditions. At the moment of the exposure the body makes a direct connection between the two. There is a tight connection is formed at that very moment between
the toxin and the trauma.

What does the body do under traumatic circumstances? It either flees or freezes.

Soldiers could not flee unless they deserted. Some did. Suicide was an option
some elected to take. The much more common reaction was to freeze. This is what all animals do under such circumstances. They freeze dead in their tracks, hoping that the
enemy will not spot them. All secondary systems in the body are shut down,
including the systems that eliminate toxins naturally.

The toxins are tied, linked and stuck to the trauma. It is as if they are married to one another, holding hands as they celebrate their 40th anniversary.

If you fit into that category of persons who are frustrated because you have been unable to eliminate toxins (we we all have toxins in our body) then I suggest that you first investigate therapies that will help you release the trauma. Redirect your energies toward the work of releasing the trauma that is trapped inside the cells of your body.

Release of toxins will follow in due course. Many options are available today that
help people with Parkinson’s symptoms release the trauma that has been frozen
in their cells.

  1. Settle on a therapy that your intuition tells you is perfect for you and your body.
  2. Experience the relief from stress and tension as the trauma takes a long awaited exit from the stage of your life.
  3. Watch the secondary benefit with delight as those nasty toxins begin to stampede out of your body at long last.

Empower Recovery

In his second book, “Parkinson’s Empowerment Training” author Karl Sterling goes deep into exploring many areas that will help a person with PD to empower recovery, improve the quality of movement, cognition, memory, and life itself.
You will encounter suggestions in my interview with Karl that will provide techniques and methods that offer the opportunity to reverse Parkinson’s symptoms.

He addressed ways to empower recovery including:

  •  Power of hope, empowerment, and beliefempower recovery
  •  The two step process to maximize neuroplasticity
  •  How to get sustained sleep at night
  •  Benefits of using Power Plate and whole body vibration
  •  The multifaceted roles dopamine plays in the body
  •  Techniques to improve memory and cognition
  •  Methods to Improve Gait and Mobility

Parkinson’s Natural Therapies

Will only one Parkinson’s natural therapy work the magic to reverse symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease?

In a handful of cases, I have documented cases where an individual diagnosed with Parkinson’s found that a single approach succeeded in reversing their symptoms. The therapy involved healing an infection – either from a root canal or an infection like candida.

When I analyze results of the annual Parkinsons Recovery Survey, people who report they were feeling better over the previous year report using an average of four natural therapies. The bottom line is that most success stories involve a commitment to embrace a combination of natural therapies that help people get a handle on issues associated with the diagnosis involving toxins, anxiety and stress.

The other compelling result of the Parkinsons Recovery survey this year is the surprising spread of natural therapies reported to have been useful in reversing symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. What is a successful therapy for one person may not be successful for another.

The therapies generally fall into two general categories:

  1. Movement which includes all forms of exercise
  2. A wide range of natural therapies that calm the nervous system and support the functionality of the parasympathetic system.

In most cases, implementation of only one among the many Parkinson’s natural therapies that have helped  other persons does not necessarily lead to a reversal of your symptoms.

The choices of natural possibilities is wide. Experimentation is needed to discover which of the many Parkinson’s natural therapies will work the magic for you. What may succeed for a friend who experiences similar symptoms may not necessarily be the best solution for you.

Everyone is indeed different! The good news is that there are many Parkinson’s natural therapies have helped people celebrate a reverse of their own symptoms. Set the intention to find the ones that will work the magic for you.

Best Parkinson’s Diet

Many people ask me the following: What is the best Parkinson’s diet? Here is my answer after researching this issue now for over a decade.

Reports of Best Parkinson’s Diet Choices that have been helping persons with Parkinson’s Symptoms feel better 

The following is a listing reported by respondents on the annual Parkinsons Recovery Survey of dietary choices that helped them celebrate relief from Parkinson’s  symptoms during 2021. No one approach floated to the top of the list as the most useful diet. Take note of the variety of diets that are listed!

It makes perfect sense to me that different diets will be appropriate for different people depending on their metabolism, blood type, genes, DNA and other factors.  The challenge for those of you traveling down the road to recovery is to find and embrace the diet that will make it possible for you to celebrate relief from your symptoms.

Here is the list. There are other diets certainly that were not reported but may be ideal for you and your body. 

   Adequate Nutrition

Has Anyone Recovered from Parkinson’s Disease?

YouTube player

Most people buy into the belief that once diagnosed with Parkinson’s, you are destined to get worse.

              • No hope.
              • No chance of recovery.
              • No chance to get your life back.

No wonder so many people are depressed!

But …. Is this really true? Everyone in the medical community claims it to be true, but I ask you, what evidence do they provide to support their depressing claim you will inevitably get worse? I have seen no evidence.

I have now provided compelling evidence for the past decade that the belief Parkinson’s is degenerative is false. People do recover. People do get their life back. Symptoms can be reversed.

In my holiday survey I ask the question: over the past year since the last holiday season, have you been feeling better, about the same or worse? There are three choices.

If the claim Parkinson’s is degenerative is true, 100% of the respondents to my survey would report they are worse. This is not the result reported this year or any of the past years of my survey. This year, as in past years, two thirds of respondents (66%) report that they have either been better or about the same.

People diagnosed with Parkinson’s have found ways to reverse their symptoms or at a minimum not get worse.

Despite frustrations and roadblocks, know that in your heart, mind and soul that recovery is possible. Make it happen now.

Parkinson’s Prognosis

Most people buy into the belief that once diagnosed, the Parkinson’s prognosis is that you are  destined to get worse.

No hope.
No chance of recovery.
No chance to get your life back.

No wonder so many people are depressed!

But …. Is this really true? Everyone in the medical community claims it to be true, but I ask you, what evidence do they provide to support their depressing claim you will inevitably get worse? I have seen no evidence.

I have now provided compelling evidence for the past decade that the belief Parkinson’s is degenerative is false. People do recover. People do get their life back. Symptoms can be reversed.

In my holiday survey I ask the question: over the past year since the last holiday season, have you been feeling better, about the same or worse? There are three choices.

If the claim Parkinson’s is degenerative is true, 100% of the respondents to my survey would report they are worse. This is not the result reported this year or any of the past years of my survey. This year, as in past years, two thirds of respondents (66%) report that they have either been better or about the same.

People diagnosed with Parkinson’s have found ways to reverse their symptoms or at a minimum not get worse. They also elect to embrace a wide variety of natural therapies.

Many people ask me what is the one therapy they should embrace to reverse their symptoms. When the success stories of people who have reversed their symptoms are examined, there is no single successful therapy that works for all persons other than the strong and compelling belief that recovery is possible for anyone.

Despite frustrations and roadblocks, know that in your heart, mind and soul that recovery is possible. Make your Parkinson’s prognosis a positive one.

Delta Variant

It would seem the delta variant of Covid is responsible for spreading theDELTA-VARIANT
disease more quickly that the original Covid 19. What can you do if you are infected with either virus?

Of course, check with your medical doctor immediately. I am not a medical doctor, but I wanted you to know what my own doctor recommended if I or a member of my family is infected.

Anti-histamines Help Knock Out the Delta Variant

My own doctor recommended that I take antihistamines if infected with the Delta Variant of the corona virus. There are a variety of over the counter options. My naturopath has some high quality anti-histamine options which I decided to order in case someone in my family is infected.  I recommend you check with your own doctor about natural alternatives that might recommend or have available.

Changing your diet should also help. Incorporate fresh foods like fruits and vegetables, fresh meat seafood, and whole grains. I found this listing of foods on the internet that contain high histamines which should be avoided:

  • Fermented dairy products, such as cheese (especially aged), yogurt, sour cream, buttermilk, and kefir.
  • Fermented vegetables, such as sauerkraut and kimchi.
  • Pickles or pickled veggies.
  • kombucha.
  • cured or fermented meats, such as sausages, salami, and fermented ham.

Summary

If you get infected with the Corona 19 virus or any of its spin offs, my doctor tells me taking anti-histamines and changing your diet can offer welcome relief from your symptoms. She said any over the counter anti-histamine product would likely help offer symptom relief. Most naturopaths have high quality anti-histamine supplements available, so no matter what, be sure and check with your doctor about any specific options they recommend.

Photobiomodulation Parkinson’s Study

Photobiomodulation Parkinson’s Study Results Released

Finally! I have been eagerly waiting to learn results of a 3 year Australian photobiomodulation Parkinson’s study that examined the impact of light therapy (using Vielight.com devices) on symptoms of persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Results have finally been published.

Documented reductions in symptoms far exceeded my expectations. Measures of mobility, cognition, dynamic balance and fine motor skill for the 12 Parkinson’s research subjects were significantly improved (p < 0.05) with photobiomodulation treatment for 12 weeks and up to one year. Many individual improvements were above the minimal clinically important difference, the threshold judged to be meaningful for participants. Individual improvements varied but many continued for up to one year with sustained home treatment.

The design of this study was eloquent. Participants were assessed for mobility, fine motor skills, balance and cognition before treatment began, after 4 weeks of treatment, after 12 weeks of treatment and the end of the home treatment period. 

Researchers drew the following conclusions:

“PBM (photobiomodulation) was shown to be a safe and potentially effective treatment for a range of clinical signs and symptoms of PD. Improvements were maintained for as long as treatment continued, for up to one year in a neurodegenerative disease where decline is typically expected.” 

The Future of Medicine has Arrived

Click on the link below to hear my interview on Parkinsons Recovery Radio with Dr. Lew Lim, inventor of Vielight photobiomodulation devices. This interview was conducted before publicatio of the photobiomodulation Parkinson’s study.

I predict the future of medicine rests with innovative therapies that utilize light and sound to bring the body back into balance and harmony.  Neurons are cells that contain mitochondria. Photobiomodulation energizes neuronal mitochondria, triggering a cascade of beneficial cellular functions. Potential benefits are:

  • Neuroprotective effects.
  • Self-repair mechanisms and
  • Enhanced functionality.

Results of this photobiomodulation Parkinson’s study affirm  these expectations.

YouTube player

I predict Dr. Lim’s new invention promises to set health care in new and exciting directions and has the potential to offer far reaching benefits to persons experiencing Parkinson’s symptoms.

After listening to this interview, I am even more optimistic about this therapy for Parkinson’s and other conditions including mental fog and dementia. Be sure to listen to my interview with Dr. Lim posted at the top of this post. I believe Dr. Lim is a true pioneer who has invented medicine of the future which uses light.

Intranasal photobiomodulation is the most efficient method for light energy to reach the brain. Different from electrical and magnetic stimulation, photobiomodulation uses light energy (or photons) of specific wave lengths and power density to simulate cellular function.

Dr. Lim is an engineer and a Doctor of Natural Medicine with additional diplomas in Medical Neuroscience and Business and Accountancy. He obtained his degrees and diplomas from the University of California at Berkeley, University of Sheffield, Duke University, Quantum University and The Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, UK.

About the Vielight Photobiomodulation Device

The company, Vielight, has generously offered followers of Parkinsons Recovery a 10% discount off orders of the the Vielight Neuro Gamma device which retails for $1749. Enter the coupon code healing4me on the shopping  cart. The website: www.vielight.com

Warranty

Vielight is so confident in its new product that you get six (6) months to try out their newly invented  photobiomodulation therapy. If for any reason you are not satisfied, you can return it for a 80% refund. I have never heard of a company that is so confident in their product that such a generous warranty can be extended. They obviously have high confidence in their new invention. While there is scant evidence about its effectiveness for people who experience symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, the opportunity to try it out for minimal risk is currently available.

Are Medicines or Supplements no Longer Working for You?

If the answer is yes to this question,  what treatment options remain? There is, of course, Deep Brain Stimulation available as an option, but I am well aware many of you prefer not to pursue this treatment option. It is my hope and prayer that photobiomodulation therapy will become a natural option that supports the therapeutic effect of medicines and supplements such that the dosage does not have to be increased or even can be reduced under close supervision of your doctor.

I thus recommend that you consider this therapy so we can discover together whether my prediction of success is right or wrong.Can claim a 10% discount if you use the Parkinsons Recovery discount code of healing4me.

  1. Get 6 months of use to see if it offers symptomatic relief or not.

  3. Everyone in the family can use the therapy.

The Vielight company obviously has confidence in their product which is a very encouraging sign. I have never heard of any company that offered a 6 month warranty. You can purchase any of the Vielight devices   from the Vielight website:

www.vielight.com

Be sure to enter the coupon code healing4me on the Vielight shopping cart to claim your Parkinsons Recovery 10% discount. Please also email me your experience with using it after a month (or longer) of use.

Research on Light Therapy from MIT

The following video previews recent research at MIT that explains why light therapy offers a promising opportunity to reverse dementia associated with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

YouTube player

I hope many of you will try this therapy out and let me know the result. It is not a permanent “fix” to be sure, but neither is medicine. I am attracted to this option because it is noninvasive and inexpensive over the long term when you consider it can be used for a lifetime and by all members of the household.

Photobiomodulation Mechanism

Photobiomodulation Parkinson's Study

Visible red and near infrared light energy stimulates cells to generate more energy facilitating self-repair. The healing takes place within the mitochondria through an enzyme called cytochrome c oxidase. This enzyme accepts and converts the light (or photonic) energy into cellular energy (ATP) and other gene transcription factors leading to cellular repair and regeneration.

Will Photobiomodulation Therapy Interfere with My Daily Life?

No. You are welcome to receive the therapy while working, reading or doing anything really.  Dr. Lim, the inventor, recommends that people with more serious health issues such as Alzheimers might be advised to do the therapy at night while going to sleep. The treatment duration lasts only 20 minutes.

What follows is an email I have permission to post regarding the   photobiomodulation gamma device  from Vielight.  As with any therapy, do your due diligence in deciding whether this therapy is right for you.

“I want to let you know my wife’s experience so far with the Vielight gamma device.

We received the device on 1/25/18 and started using the device per Dr. Lim’s instructions 6 days on 1 day off. It took about 3 weeks to start seeing benefits. The benefits have been clearer head, more confident, better balance(hasn’t fallen since 1/15/18 with prior multiple falls weekly), better gait, much less threshold challenges, and has been able to reduce medication by about a third.

A little history about my wife, she has had Parkinson’s since 1995. Per her neurologist as of May 2017 she was level 4 with the disease ready for wheel chair. In June 2017 we began our journey with hrhyperbaric.com here in Norfolk, Va. She completed 40 dives, which basically gave her her life back. It was the best money we have ever spent on her treatment. You can see her video on their website.
After the last month of the vielight, we have experienced an extension of the benefits similar to HBOT but the Vielight has done more overall and at this point is much better investment.
Thanks again for getting the word out on Vielight. Please feel free to use this information to help others.”
Respectfully,
Gordon Glover
