"Many people have recovered from Parkinson’s disease.
The main focus of the Parkinson’s Recovery Project has been on figuring out, from the welter of methods used by those who’ve recovered, the commonalities that might link these recoveries.
If you go online, you will find many people have recovered from Parkinson’s disease. If these recovery cases are examined carefully, one finds highly specific commonalities among those who recover. Without even knowing the processes that cause idiopathic Parkinson’s, they have either 1) brought their attention to bear on an unhealed foot injury – usually an injury sustained in childhood or 2) made a significant mental adjustment: deciding that they are indeed safe from clear and present danger even if they let their guard down. For this mental adjustment, they may have decided to “trust a higher power,” or decided they are “safe, after all,” or simply given up on trying to use their own mental prowess to keep themselves safe from anything and everything.
In many cases, they have done both: they have gotten treatment or performed exercises that has brought their attention to a long-forgotten, still-unhealed foot injury and decided that they are safe enough that they can relax their guard or trust the universe or allow some higher power to be in charge of keeping them safe.
Many people who recover assume that, among the myriad practices and dietary changes they’ve played with, their more esoteric, elaborate, or difficult practices must at the root of their recovery, rather than the healing of a “mere” foot and/or ankle injury and/or their profound attitude change (deciding that they are safe, after all).
It can seem “too simple” to recover just from healing an old injury and/or changing a deeply entrenched mindset of wariness.
But if you look closely at the many approaches taken by people who successfully recover, one or both of these two events have always been a part of the process in every person who has recovered from Parkinson’s."
