Diagnosed in September, 2009 at age 80, John Schappi blogs about Parkinson's Disease and aging at:
A Washington, DC resident, he pursues many interests, including gardening, bridge, travel, biking, and internet research. His blog “Aging and Parkinson’s and Me” is designed to be a place for seniors dealing with Parkinson’s and other afflictions to share their experience, strength and hope.
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.

I also answer a number of questions about therapies that help reverse the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Some of the questions I addressed are:
I have been very focused on heavy metal and liver detox/diet is 60 - 70 percent raw food - lots of greens. I feel my gait has improved but my left hand/arm tremor is getting worse. I take only LDN. Any thoughts?
How can I reduce and/or stop a hand tremor? Also, stop the tremor temporarily for several hours for a particular activity like ballroom dancing
I am thinking if introducing CBD's in my regimen to address symptoms. Could you elaborate on the mechanism and use of CBD's.

Parkinsons Recovery Mindfulness Series
Dr. Ivy Faber, ND, previews a holistic method for assessing imbalances in the body known as bioenergetic testing. The method has been in existence for over four decades. If you have been wondering what in the world is really wrong with you, this assessment offers rich insights into the imbalances in the body that are causing the symptoms that are currently experienced. I have received eight bioenergetic assessments from Dr. Faber over the past decade which have been instrumental in helping to detox.
Need ongoing guidance and support for your journey down the road to recovery? It is available in January: www.jumpstart.parkinsonsrecovery.com
Over the past 30 years Sharry Edwards has pioneered a fascinating technology known as Bioacoustics. She uses a 30 second recording of your voice to diagnose the imbalances that are currently present. For example, are your symptoms caused in part by a deficiency in vitamin D3 or zinc or a defect in a specific gene or eating GMO foods? There are so many possibilities that it becomes overwhelming for everyone. How does she do this? Each aspect of the body (whether it is an organ, vitamin, mineral, gene or whatever) emits a specific frequency. The presence of absence of these frequencies are identified using her vocal profiling technology. Her approach cuts to the quick by identifying which imbalances in the body may be contributing to neurologocial symptoms.
If you do not know what is causing your symptoms, it becomes overwhelming to decide which of the many available options will help you feel better. Sharry Edwards will offer live voice profile analyses for persons who call into the show. She will also announce a special two day training she will offer in Santa Fe after the Parkinsons Recovery Summit concludes to teach you how to assess and treat imbalances yourself.
Can Parkinson’s disease be prevented or even reversed? Current medical treatments have been able to ease the symptoms, but none can even come close to being called a cure. While a complete cure may not be available at this time, there is a treatment that can slow down, stop, and even reverse many of the symptoms of the disease. This new treatment doesn’t rely on drugs, surgery, or any medical treatment. It is based on diet. The key element of this diet is coconut—more specifically, coconut oil. A coconut oil based diet has proven to be highly effective in stopping and reversing a number of neurodegenerative conditions including epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Parkinson’s.
My special guest is naturopath doctor Bruce Fife, N.D, author of Stop Alzheimer's Now!: How to Prevent & Reverse Dementia, Parkinson's, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis & Other Neurodegenerative Disorders. Dr. Fife will explain how coconut ketones are being used to successfully treat Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative conditions.
