Parkinsons Recipe For Recovery
My goal with this entry is to cover in detail what I did to recover. Please note: I did not take any medications, nor did I take herbal supplements, herbal formulas, or Ayurvedic formulas. My recovery was predicated on a combination of soul, mind and body healing. As you know, I am not a doctor, and I do not recommend that you do anything that I did to recover without first receiving approval from your doctor, and from your religious and spiritual advisors. That being said, I am going to begin with my philosophy of Parkinsons Disease so you can understand why I feel I got it and how I approached getting rid of it. Without this background, much of what I did will make no sense to you.
For about a decade prior to getting Parkinsons, I had been studying Traditional Chinese Medicine and other forms of holistic healing. I concluded that there are underlying factors that make a person susceptible to getting Parkinsons. However, the three main causes that bring Parkinsons to the surface as diagnosable symptoms are:
1. Qi and Blood Deficiency, which is caused by emotional stress, anger, frustration, and resentment.2. Phlegm-Fire Agitating Wind, which is caused by dietary considerations such as consumption of too much greasy, fried or sweet foods.3. Kidney and Liver Wind, Deficiency, which is caused by overwork and insufficient rest which unbalances the bodys natural rhythm.
Here is an example so maybe you can understand better about the body healing itself:

Fighting Parkinsons And Winning By Howard Shifke Book Review
In his book Fighting Parkinsons And Winning, author Howard Shifke gives those with the disease hope and a new outlook. With celebrities coming forth about their personal struggles with the disorder, more and more people are becoming aware just how prevalent it is.
Shifke himself had Parkinsons and details his life with the terrible disease. His mother had suffered with Parkinsons and he inherited it. Besides the physical toll it took on him, the emotional repercussions were just as upsetting to his life.
If you dont know anything about the disorder or what sufferers experience, the author gives a pretty good description as well as a general way the public can get an idea for themselves. He puts everything out there.
But if you are suffering with Parkinsons, it is a good idea to read this book as Shifke takes readers through his journey to the other side. Yes, for him there was a good ending, with his positive attitude and recipes for winning.
Parkinsons is a neurological disorder. But there are definitely ways of dealing with it. And, as Shifke opens up about his daily life and struggles, he also takes readers on his path to his recovery.
While this is not a recipe for everyone, it is definitely worth a try if you have the disorder. Shifke wants others to know how he suffered and made it through. He wrote this book to give hope to those with Parkinsons and it definitely does just that.
The book is available through in paperback and Kindle editions.

Matt, a former Paralympian footballer, talks about how he uses exercise to manage his Parkinsons symptoms.
There is no doubt that knowing your own body helps you find the right balance of treatment for Parkinsons. Understanding how the condition affects you on a daily basis means you can tweak your routine and make the most of the times when youre feeling good. Former British Paralympic footballer Matt Dimbylow embodies this approach.
Having tried different medications, Matt struggled with the physical and psychological side effects. So, for the last 2 and a half years, he has been using diet and physical activity alone to control his symptoms. He has the full support of his consultant and together they have learned through Matts experiences.
I want to tackle my Parkinsons head on, says Matt. Ive always maintained, and I think a lot of the research coming out now seems to agree, that the important part of exercise is that it makes you feel good. Its a drug in its own right.
My consultant has completely changed his view and very often hell just say to me, You do what you feel is right because you know your body best. And I think thats quite a big step for him.
In 2003 Matt had a busy day-job in Liverpool, as well as playing semi-professional football. Then, in a friendly game, he collided with another player and suffered a serious head injury. He recovered, but over the next few years noticed that he was becoming increasingly tired and apathetic.
