It has been ten years now since I launched my research program to discover the factors that cause Parkinson's disease and the therapies that provide the opportunity to reverse them. Yes, I have succeeded in identifying the many factors that cause the symptoms. And yes, I have succeeded in identifying a surprising number of therapies that help reverse those symptoms.
Many people have success with reversing some of their symptoms, but other symptoms linger. The questions that have haunted me have been:
"Why do more people not succeed in reversing all of their symptoms"?
"Since the body really does know to heal itself, why are so many people still having problems?"
I have documented the stories of some people who have succeeded in becoming symptom free but why - I have wondered to myself - aren't there thousands and thousands of people who have also become symptom free by now?
After a decade of research, I finally figured out the answer to these most curious questions. It is not an answer I had expected to encounter when I launched my research program. The discovery provides the framework for all of my work at Parkinsons Recovery incuding the Jump Start to Recovery program. You will not be able to second guess the answer.
Want to know what my recent revolutionary discovery is? Knowing it offers the opportunity for you to begin reversing your symptoms right now. What is the answer? Listen to my show where I discuss my reearch over the past 10 years which has focused on how to reverse the symptoms of Parkinson's disease and become symptom free.
Sel Kerans discusses his new book, Leading the Dance: Living well with Parkinson’s Disease, and his own journey on the road to recovery in an open, conversational expose of a five year journey with Parkinson’s disease and the experiences that have inspired the writing of a book that may be helpful, motivational and encouraging for others, especially those newly diagnosed with the condition.
His book has been dedicated to the late Robin Williams and is about overcoming adversity, staying positive and content; focusing on healing, recovery and living well. Leading the dance with an unwelcome stranger called Parkinson’s disease. Sel discusses:
What hurdles have you faced?
How have you overcome them?
Would you consider yourself recovered from Parkinson's disease?
Do you believe it's possible to recover completely from the symptoms of Parkinson's disease?
You mention in your book some reluctance with medication - what's been your approach to taking medication over the five years?
What resources have been useful for you in learning about alternative approaches to managing the symptoms?

A wide variety of conditions and factors are known to cause the symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease. What is the primary cause in your case? Once a cause has been found, resources can focus on getting the treatments that can heal the cause. This is far more efficient and (I might add) far more interesting than suppressing symptoms for the rest of your life.
Most people believe that the cause can only be detected by a trained professional who must analyze results of expensive and invasive laboratory tests. Admittedly, this is the preferred approach for most people. There is another way.
Instead of assuming someone else has the expertise to figure out what is causing your symptoms, why not put your own detective hat on? It is possible to figure out what is causing your symptoms yourself.
How? The body gives us all the information we need to find the cause. The physical origin of the presenting symptom initially is a key clue in the discovery of the cause (or causes). Important information is also found by examining your feet, eyes, hair and saliva.
It is always a good idea to get a trained professional involved in your journey down the road to recovery, but why not put yourself in the driver's seat? Figure out the likely source of symptoms yourself. In so doing, you take control over your own recovery program.
This radio show proposes a variety of methods and approaches that will give important clues as to the cause of symptoms. Some cost a few dollars. Others are free.
Want to take control over your recovery program? Listen to my program today.
Walter Mady, retired Physical Therapist and Exercise Specialist of thirty years, is my guest on the radio show today. Walter was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease in 2008. He currently treats his symptoms using a combination of eastern and western approaches including exercise, ayurvedic medicine, Qigong and medications.
Are you taking all the best medicines and supplements for your symptoms and even doing the exercise recommended
by the experts but are not seeing a reversal of your symptoms? I have a good guess for you about why. You are dehydrated.
Simply put, your body cannot take in the nutrients nor discharge the toxins if there is not enough water in the cells of your body.
When you your doctor answers the question: "what can I do to feel better?" by saying - "Drink more water" do not laugh. Your doctor is right. Taking the time today to listen to my radio show today will be well worth your time if it simply encourages you to drink more water.
My show presents an interview with my guest Jaroslov Boublik, PhD who in my book of experts is the international expert on water and hydration. Dr. Boublik answers such questions as:
Why do we get dehydrated as we age?
Why is hydration so important to elminate toxins?
If I add such substances to my diet such as - salt, energy drinks, coffee, tea, alcohol, colas, milk - will I be better hydrated?
What are the symptoms of dehydration?
Is drinking structured water a good idea?
Can good hydration reduce Parkinson's symptoms?
will better hydration enhance mental clarity?
Jaroslov Boublik is also one of the amazing developers of the Aquas, a homeopathic treatment for dehydration. He answers questions from listeners about their use and application.

Everyone want s to see symptoms reversed now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. Now. The model we have been taught to believe in is the following:
Make an appointment with the doctor.
Get a prescription for medicine or surgery.
Celebrate a reversal of symptoms.
The focus is on a treatment of symptoms, not on exploring the possible cause (or causes) of symptoms. We should all be thankful that the option of treating symptoms is available for Parkinson's Disease. It has helped many people. Not everyone benefits however. Some people experience little or no relief from taking medications for Parkinson's or pursuing surgery.
On this show I disuss the choice between treating symptoms and exploring the cause of Parkinson's symptoms. Which is the better choice? It depends of course. Listen to my show to know why. I also answer questions submitted by listeners.

A diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease is actually a diagnosis that is made after all other possibilities are eliminated by standard diagnostic tests. As such, Parkinson's Disease is otherwise known as a garbage can diagnosis. During the show today, Sharry Edwards from Sound Health Options is the host and for a switch, Robert Rodgers, Ph.D. from Parkinsons Recovery is the guest. Both offer fresh perspectives on the factors that contribute to the symptoms associated with a diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease. Sharry Edwards is one of eleven contributors to the new book Pioneers of Recovery (www.pioneersofrecovery.com)
