A Day of Respite and Amazement



It happened on April 12, 2016, a most unbelievable day in about 30 years! I can’t explain it and neither could my very qualified neurologist. I wouldn’t have believed it if I had not experienced it.

I had a day of nearly 24 hours with NO symptoms of Parkinson’s disease! Of all days, that afternoon, I had a scheduled appointment with my neurologist who was just as dumbfounded as my wife and I were. If this isn’t a sign that staying and being open to new complementary therapies may be of value, well it sure looks positive.

I can’t say that I’ve recreated that day since, but I am hopeful and I will continue to re-construct just what I did to make Parkinson’s vacate my system for a day. Very strange-Very Wonderful–Very Real!

  1. That’s a great experience, Karl. Keep digging deep, but always “digging” the surface simultaneously, you dig?
