My Parkinsonian symptoms are going on with me now for
4 months and the strongest is my slowness of movements,
speech and the way my face looks so sad. Today I just felt
fatigued and some feeling in my brain like a flush or a wave of slowness.
I am seeing a neurologist for the second time on 9/l6 for
further evaluation. I have yet to be formally diagnosed
with parkinsonism. In a small corner in my mind I carry
he thought that these symptoms are temporary and it is
not Parkinson’s. Do others that you may know of have
similar symptoms like my self that turn out not to be Parkinson’s
and they are well again?
Thank you for letting me update you on what is going on
with my health. I am reaching out as far as I can for help
and guidance on all I can do. My life has changed l00%
this past 4 months.
I was taking SAMe for three months for depression.
It elevated my mood and I was feeling 80 percent better
so I stopped taking it one week ago. I weaned myself off
in a week. Now I am wondering if stopping SAMe is
the reason I do not feel so good now.
Are you familiar with SAMe?
Well – you have been on a roller coaster these past few months.
The question you ask is: Do I know of people who have symptoms like
yours who have been able to recover or feel better?
The encouraging answer is yes! I interview people all the time with symptoms
like yours – give them any name you wish – who have figured out ways to feel
better. I just finished an interview with John Coleman, a naturopath doctor
from Australia who had Parkinson’s in 1995 but who has fully recovered today.
You can hear his interview by clicking on the link below:
I will soon have a member web site available for
access where I will be posting interviews and doing
teleseminars with people like John. Many are not health
care professionals like John – just people who have figured out
what to do for themselves to feel better.
I personally believe there are two basic ways to
approach problems like yours. First, many people
spend a great deal of energy and time trying to figure
out what is wrong. From my experience, this approach
tends to sustain a great deal of fear and makes sure that
you will experience the symptoms of Parkinson’s because
fear triggers hormonal imbalances in the body.
The second approach is to say – OK – my body is giving
me some information. It is working perfectly – as it always does.
It must be the case that my body needs something I am not
giving it – perhaps good food, exercise, mind challenges,
levity, relaxation, detoxing, etc., etc.). With this approach
a person can begin to make some changes in their life and
eventually turn their health around. It does take time and trust.
As for tests revealing problems with lesions and tumors and
cancers and – you name it – my personal feeling is (and remember
this is only my personal feeling) – everyone has things like this
in their bodies. Everyone has cancers in their body at one time or
another. Most people have lesions of one type or another. Etc.
Clearly it is a good idea to get things checked out by doctors
and consider their recommendations. Medicine sometimes
works miracles for people.
The challenge for anyone in a situation like yours is that
if you spend most of your time focusing your attention on
what is wrong with your body – if those thought forms
dominate your thinking – you will be guaranteed to manifest
something wrong. Our thoughts create our reality.
As for the drug you asked about – I stay away from making
any comments about drugs since I am not a medical doctor
and I am not qualified to do so. However, I have an
appointment this week with Randy Mentzer who is a certified
nutritional counselor and a pharmacist.
Randy is amazing. I hope to do a teleseminar with Randy
in the next several weeks. Be sure to listen. You can ask
questions. I can ask him your question and he will answer it!
Teleseminars are so cool. So, stay tuned. I hope to have the
announcement out this week about the teleseminar with Randy.
I am hoping for good news from the doctors for you…
All the best,
Robert Rodgers, Ph.D.
