Parkinson’s disease is not an incurable illness.
Many, many people have recovered, permanently, from the electrical irregularities that causes Parkinson’s disease.
The book Recovery from Parkinson’s explains what causes Parkinson’s and details the discoveries Dr. Janice Walton-Hadlock made while looking for commonalities in the many people who have “spontaneously” or “miraculously” recovered from Parkinson’s disease and in her subsequent work with hundreds of people with Parkinson’s.
This is the “main book” offered by the Parkinson’s Recovery Project. This book is a guide to recovery for a person who wants to recover from Parkinson’s disease. Recovery is, in most cases, a do-it-yourself project: no professional assistance is needed, although a friend or loved one might be recruited to help with the hands-on support of a long-unhealed injury, if any.
This book explains what causes Parkinson’s disease (an electrical circuitry problem), how Dr. Walton-Hadlock and the Parkinson’s Treatment Team (now retired) discovered this problem, and the steps one can take to bring about recovery. This book explains how to diagnose Parkinson’s and how to recognize the distinctive symptoms that occur during recovery. This book also delves into a bit of Chinese medical theory – just enough to explain why the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease develop as they do, and to help understand the recovery symptoms.
About this 2013 edition
The original edition of this book came out in 1997. It was posted online, for free download, as have been all the Parkinson’s-related books by Dr. Janice Walton-Hadlock. That first book, and several subsequent editions were all named Recovery from Parkinson’s. The books are updated frequently, as new information comes out.
The 2005 and 2008 editions were each given different names, to help the members of the Parkinson’s Treatment Team know which edition a patient had been reading. The 2005 edition was titled Almost Icarus. The 2008 edition was titled Trouble Afoot. The latest, 2013 edition, is titled, once again, Recovery from Parkinson’s.
Even if you have read the previous editions, please do read the latest edition: much new material has been added.
Also, stay tuned for a new edition that will hopefully come out in 2017. This newest edition will mesh with the book Stuck on Pause, which is due out in late 2016.
About Stuck on Pause
Stuck on Pause explains the Chinese understanding of the four neurological modes (western medicine has only discovered two), including the one often seen in people with Parkinson’s. Stuck on Pause addresses the neurological and psychological conditions that exist in some people with Parkinson’s: those people who are most prone to get stuck in “partial recovery.” The term “partial recovery” is discussed in great detail in Recovery from Parkinson’s.
Stuck on Pause shares the simple, do-it-yourself techniques that shift a person out of the neurological mode that is triggered during the severe shock that accompanies life-threatening physical or emotional damage.
Many people, including people who do not have Parkinson’s, are going through life dealing with “incurable” medical problems of “unknown origin” because they are still somewhat stuck in shock. The simple steps required for turning off this neurological mode are extremely different from those used for a person who is stuck in sympathetic mode. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an example of a person who is stuck in sympathetic mode – not near-death mode. The neurological behaviors that kick in during near-death mode, when one perceives himself as being outside of his body, is electrically almost the opposite from the electrical patterns of sympathetic mode that kick in during extreme stress.
The electrical patterns in people with Parkinson’s, and in many people who have never fully turned off “near-death mode,” are addressed in the book Stuck on Pause.
Again, Stuck on Pause will hopefully be out by the end of 2016. A new edition of Recovery from Parkinson’s that meshes a wee bit better with Stuck on Pause will hopefully by out by the end of 2017. The new edition will not have much new material, but the vocabulary developed for Stuck on Pause will be integrated into the new edition of Recovery from Parkinson’s in order to give the reader of both a more seamless experience.
