Improve Balance. Prevent Falls.

  • Are you having difficulty with 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 is – at long last – now available.  The Parkinsons Recovery Walk with Ease and Confidence membership documents the strategies, “steps”and programs  you can pursue that improve balance and prevent falls. The ideas are presented in the forms of text, clips of interviews from
Parkinsons Recovery radio shows, videos taken at the various Parkinsons Recovery Summits and YouTube videos.

Why Did I Create This New Resource?

I have hosted hundreds of radio show guests on Parkinsons Recovery radio shows over the past 10 years. My guests have discussed amazing strategies and fascinating programs to improve balance and prevent falls. These suggestions and ideas have always been (and will continue to be) accessible for free.

I realized recently that most people with mobility issues do not know about these solutions. How could this be so? The suggestions and strategies I have meticulously  documented over the past decade are, practically speaking, inaccessible. There is so much information scattered all over the place it would take months to locate the information you need.

Until now.

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 solutions for improving balance and preventing falls. The content is now organized in one place for easy access – the new Walk with Balance and Confidence membership.

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

  • How to Prevent Falling Forward
  • Two 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

A Novel Solution for Falls and Balance Problems

Many of the therapies I have identified in my research over the past six years require a minimum level of functionality. We know exercise helps many people with their recovery, but if a person falls repeatedly and has balance problems, exercise may not really be a viable option. Moreover, if movement is problematic, it is very challenging to reverse any symptoms that might currently be experienced.

On my radio show today (Wednesday, April 4, 2012) Physical Therapist Cindy Horn discusses a solution she has recently invented: Balance Based Torso Weighting Technology. To watch a video demonstration of this custom weighted jacket, click on the link below:

After watching the video, be sure to listen to my interview with Cindy Horn on the radio show Wednesday at 3 pm pacific time (6 pm eastern):

Solutions for the Symptoms of Falling and Staring

Gord Summer was a guest on my weekly radio show on December 29, 2010.  In this video of Gord’s impromptu presentation at the Parkinsons Recovery Summit in March, 2011, Gord provides a demonstration on how he has learned to take a fall without hurting himself. Gord also offers his recommendations on how to handle social situations when one of your symptoms happens to be “staring”.
