  1. Thanks for watching! What has been your experience with physical therapy for your Parkinson's symptoms? Share with me in the comments below!

  2. Anything besides just words? I do not need “water” in the form of words. Show me what exercises do help. How to do, how often, etc . Time is precious for me and people like me. I do not want to waste my time on all kinds of discussions . Do you have anything to offer besides words?

  3. Thanks for your quick respond, Sarah. But, nothing to offer , ah ? Muscle problems. Spasm, weak back muscles, bad posture , spasm . I try this and try that. Nothing seems work. Looking for somebody who can offer something that will make my back stroner to help with my posture and low back muscle spasm

  4. How about addressing the issue of who pays for PT. I am currently on the AFCA insurance which has a super high deductible. I cannot get medicare until I have been disabled for 24 months. So I need to wait another 14 months until I can afford PT.

  5. Helio
    I have multiple sclerosis.
    I have balance issues and tremors in my left hand and my head.
    I found this videos helpful.

  6. Excellent.  Knowledgeable, articulate and passionate.  Your skilful holistic approach embracing the tremendous advances of neuroscience in modern medicine as it relates to PD must be changing the lives and bringing hope to so many who are too readily subjected to a prognosis of inevitable decline with an accelerating regime of pharmaceuticals.   This despite so much peer reviewed research supporting your approach, which of course does not suggest it is a total substitute.I believe there are parallels with the situation in mental health, especially mood disorders, where,  in spite of massive evidence based research, far too much of the medical profession continue to see drugs as the only solution rather than mindfulness and the range of therapies such as ACT and CBT which are not only as or more effective but also allow the patient to take some control of their own lives. This is to say nothing of the great benefits in a body/mind/brain context of vigorous resistance exercise.On the subject of use of the mantra, you rightly acknowledge that some may choose prayer and in this regard I would mention that there is a long tradition of the use of the prayer word in contemplative prayer, for example, with the Desert Fathers and Mothers dating back to the fourth century.  While this is primarily directed at the spiritual dimension it undoubtedly produces similar psychological and neuro-physiological benefits.  This is especially demonstrated in the contemporary world by the writings of Father Martin Laird (also can be seen on YouTube) who discusses, among other things, the intersecting (but not identity) with findings in modern clinical psychology.God bless you for bringing relief to so many suffering and their "significant others" throughout the world.

  7. My friend was diagnosed with PD(Parkinson’s Disease) in the summer of 2012. Her initial symptoms were quite noticeable. She first experienced weakness in her right arm and her speech and swallowing abilities were profoundly affected. She did so much to seek help for this disease, as she had been her brother's caregiver a few years earlier for the same disease. Early this year she started on organic/natural PD treatment from Best Health Herbal Centre (ww w. besthealthherbalcentre. co m). The treatment worked very effectively and all her symptoms simply disappeared completely after 7 weeks of  usage.

  8. Excellent information, I participate in 2 Parkinson's specific therapies a week and they both have been so instrumental in maintaining flexibility and balance. Granted the stiffness and balance issues are there but I believe the symptoms could be so much worse.

  9. I learnt about RICH HERBS FOUNDATION (ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om) and their successful Parkinson Disease Formula treatment protocol a year ago. Since my Parkinson disease diagnosis over 4 years ago, I have tried several medications and supplements, nothing gave me good relief till I started on the RHF Parkinson Disease Formula protocol. Its been 7 monthso since I completed the treatment, all my symptoms including tremors, speech problems and other symptoms stopped

  10. I need a physical therapy, I am staying in Singapore, do you have any recommendation, I prefer face to face session. Thanks.
