I have been faithfully reading your daily mails and find them quite comforting. Here’s my problem.
I won’t be seeing a neurologist until November 15th. My family doctor’s suspicion of Parkinson’s Disease is based on the fact that my hand tremors are ‘resting’ tremors.
Whenever I have the courage to check for more information online, I find information which makes me think it could possibly be caused by something else, i.e. genes (my dad had a bit of a tremor in his hand), low blood sugar (although I am not diabetic. The tremors seem to get better when I drink a pop, not diet.) … you get my meaning, I’m sure.
I also am very much aware of the fact that the tremors get a lot worse when I try to suppress them. If I sit on my hand, they seem to move into my shoulder. They also almost go away completely when I am totally relaxed (they come back at the slightest sign of stress).
I would like to do something to help myself while I wait for my appointment. I would like to be proactive rather than reactive. Is there something you can recommend? I know there are many good suggestions on your web page, but it’s information overload for me still.
Any suggestion will be much appreciated.
I feel the information overload too. There are so many opportunities out there – which ones do you pursue? It gets really overwhelming. That really is why I began doing the Jump Start to Wellness programs – to help people shift through the maze of options to find therapies that are right for them and their bodies.
Let me offer a few suggestions you might want to talk with your doctor about.
Stop eating dairy products.
Exercise every day. Exercise addresses the stress.
Use body therapies that release the stress like cranio-sacral therapy, Bowen therapy, Tin Tui Na, vibroacoustic therapy, etc. As you well know, when you can release the stress that is trapped in your tissues, your symptoms will not flare when you are under stress in the moment.
Toxins are a big factor. I have no idea what you have tried – but zeolite is a great detox. There are several companies who offer zerolite detoxes. I interviewed Robert Bonham, Ph.D. several months ago. You might want to listen to that radio show interview. Detoxing with zeolite has the potential to offer significant relief.
I am hot on the trail of a supplement that I have been taking which has given me incredible energy. It offers the body a way of making glutathione naturally. I will talk about it on my radio show this next week. It is called Can-C Plus -and has been used in conjunction which eye drops that reverse cataracts. Looks to me like it is a great anti-aging supplement and I am guessing it may provide great relief from neurological challenges. I think this supplement may provide many people with Parkinson’s relief from their symptoms. It is all speculation – but I am excited nonetheless.
Finally – are you adequately hydrated? If your body is not getting enough water – symptoms will be worse. John Coleman recommends aquas (www.aquas.us). Whatever approach you use, be sure that your body is adequently hydrated every day.
I would not worry over a diagnosis. It is just a guess anyway. Your body has the power to heal itself when given the support and nourishment it needs to heal.
Give you body the support it needs to come back into balance and you will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
