    My Revolutionary Discovery about How to Heal Parkinsons

    in Health

    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.

    Treat Symptoms or Explore the Causes of Parkinson's Disease?

    in Health

     


    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.

    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?

    Ways to Discover the Cause of Your Parkinson's Symptoms All By Yourself

    in Health


    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.
