Last weekend, I had the privilege to attend Howard Shifke's workshop "Parkinson's Recipe for Recovery" in Tampa. It was an all day workshop and Howard presented his Recipe for Recovery which cured him of Parkinson's. There were 16 participants and all were interested in recovering from Parkinson's by being proactive, rather than going to the effect of the condition. The workshop was well organized and well presented. Along with the workshop came a well written manual explaining the recipe for recovery that Howard used to cure himself from Parkinson's. Howard now consults Parkinson's folks all over the world on his method and reports several folks who have fully recovered. I strongly urge Parkinson's folks to attend Howard's workshop and become part of a movement of folks who recover from Parkinson's rather than just progressively declining in health. Here is Howard Shifke's website:
I have personally been using Howard's Recipe for recovery since April of last year. When I learned about it, I said to myself that I owed it to myself and my family to do this program and try to recover. I had two goals in mind. One, to reduce my medication intake of Sinimet (Levidopa/Carbidopa) and secondly to get off medication completely. The first goal has been reached. There are days I can reduce my intake of medication by 20-50%. My other goal has not been reached, but I can say I crave doing the Recipe daily and it makes me feel vibrant and at cause over the condition.
At my last visit to my Neurologist, I asked him if I can reduce the medication and he said "absolutely". It is a symptom based medication and there is no need to take it, if you do not need it.
One thing I realized from Howard's workshop is that he had an incredible amount of faith to be healed and prayed to God quite a bit. I think the miracle of his cure, was a result of his faith in balancing and healing the mind, body and soul. Another, aspect of his cure was the faithful support of his wife, Sally, who was present at the workshop.
Howard has devoted his life to the Parkinson's community world wide and we are fortunate to have him on our side. Howard, thank you.
I wanted to conclude this blog with a story of faith. One of my mentor's and teacher's at Rabbinical school developed cancer at the prime of his life. He was one of the most promising minds in Jewish religious scholarship. He was also one of the finest human beings I have ever known. As he lay in the hospital breathing his last few breaths, he somehow spelled out in Hebrew what was his last word before the scholar entered heaven: "faith".
