I’ll admit it. If I see an episode of the X- Files on television, I have to stop and watch it, unless I’ve seen it more than once. The writing and storylines for the show were bright in thought and dark in content, usually. The drama was compelling and the chemistry between David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson was electric . The show worked. Each week the show explored a mysterious and unexplained phenomenon like aliens, monsters, black projects, and potential government cover-ups. This was all fantasy–right? Maybe, fantasy and reality are closer than we think.
Just this morning, a probe deep in space uncovered a planet with 2 suns, just like Tatooine, the home planet of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars. Earlier in the week, 50 new planets were discovered, many of which may be capable of sustaining life. The truth really is out there –but it’s here too!
Another recent story that caught my eye was about a cat that was missing for over 5 years but was re-united with her family. Miraculous and breathtaking events that are hard to fathom happen every day. What we think we know or take as fact may not always be so! It all starts with a flexible and open mind.
The same thought and tact applies in the battle for beating Parkinson’s disease! Neurological disorders need to be approached from a completely different perspective. Drugs and surgery may alleviate or at least reduce some symptoms, but they only stay effective for so long.
It is my strong belief that Parkinson’s is an energetic disruption in the body and not just the brain. It may likely be a disconnect between the body and the mind. For this kind of problem modern chemistry and surgical techniques are limited. The human mind and body are yet to be totally understood. There are still parts of our own planet that have yet to be explored and that leaves room for questions. In the same realm, there are parts of the body yet to be understood and illnesses that arise without any known reason. As much as we want to believe we have things in control– we don’t.
It is just for that reason that alternative or complimentary therapies (Massage, Yoga, Reiki, Qigong, and many more)that we need to do much more exploration and embracing of what may potentially work for our own healing process. I have little doubt that our bodies are capable of healing themselves. It very well may be that each of us requires our own unique cocktail of therapies to activate the process. For some it might be a change in diet and heavy exercise and for others it could be a hodge-podge of try , try, try, until I discover what works for me. I have experienced and seen amazing results in myself and in others. Medicine needs a radical mind-shift, but until then, knowledge and a willingness to educate ourselves on opportunities for improving ourselves is our best solution. What could be more important?
Imagine a world where patients improve, medical costs go down, productivity rises, and who knows where it could lead us? The truth is out there somewhere–maybe it’s here.
This is strictly my opinion. I am not a doctor. I am not a scientist. I am someone who has dealt with Parkinson’s disease for about 25 years.
