Below is a fascinating email from Nancy who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I have permission to post her email which tells an exciting story of recovery that emerged for her in a way she could have never imagined or predicted when she launched her journey down the road to recovery three years ago. .
Robert Rodgers PhD
Road to Recovery from Parkinsons Disease
I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease three years ago. Your book was a life-changer for me. I refused to accept the diagnosis. I looked at each symptom and looked for therapies just as you described. I fought with the doctors and refused medication. I accepted that I had the symptoms but not the diagnosis.
I fought back some family members as well as a collective consciousness. Two neurologists and one family M.D. told me to stop fooling myself and accept the diagnosis. My Feldenkrais instructor who happens to be a neurologist suggested I see a neurosurgeon as I have a spinal cord injury in her professional opinion. Turns out she was right I went in for surgery immediately and reversed all of my symptoms and he says I do not have Parkinson’s!
I’m on the road to recovery. Thank you again, Robert The good work that you do! Happy Independence Day!
