John Pepper was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1992 and,ten years later, while serving as President of the South African Parkinson’s Association, he wrote the first edition of his book: There is LIFE after Parkinson’s. He developed the idea that exercise might help his condition and through self-experimentation he developed an exercise and movement protocol that includes vigorous walking.
John's personal story about his journey through Parkinson's disease, his setbacks, achievements, discoveries, disappointments, and ultimate triumph, may fly in the face of how a Parkinson's diagnosis is viewed by others, who may see it as a grim prognosis of unavoidable and relatively rapid decline. John believes that the lack of hopeful information only feeds depression and negative attitudes, stating: "you cannot maintain or improve your quality of life if you don't believe it's possible."
John was featured in Norman Doidges' book "The Brain's Way of Healing" as A Man Who Walked off His Parkinsonian Symptoms, and today at 82, years young he is devoting the rest of his life to sharing his story, teaching others with Parkinson's how he did it - how he reversed the most disabling of his symptoms and reclaimed his life.
Please join us as John shares his personal philosophy and experience of being able to manage the symptoms of Parkinson’s and live an active and positive life.
