Welcome to The Curables. This blog is about recovering your health. This blog is about Parkinson’s Disease (PD). I know you have been told that these two concepts don’t fit together but I assure you that they do. Currently PD is classified as an incurable neurodegenerative disorder. If it has not been drug induced or brought on by damage due to toxicity, it is called idiopathic, meaning its cause is unknown.
Unknown, can be a good thing. Unknown is full of possibility. Though there is not a magic pill to make the frustrating, painful, and often frightening symptoms disappear, (the medication available has many side effects and often lack-of effects), there are things that can help mollify the symptoms and even improve function. Read on and you will also see that there is a road to recovery.
How do I know? I have been searching for answers for seven years. Searching like my life depended on it, because it does. I have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. You can read my story under the heading Wrestling The Nothing, and updates under Where I Am Now. It’s somewhat sad, just like those of the rest of us diagnosed with PD, but it has a happy ending, I promise you that. The ending is still unknown, but as I said earlier, the unknown is full of possibilities. If you can allow the unknown to remain a mystery and not fill it up with what you’ve been told and what you’re afraid of, the possibilities can change your life for the better. They’ve changed mine.
I invite you to read the interviews and other posts and feel free to ask questions or make comments, and tell me your story. Your highs and lows, what works for you and what doesn’t. The healing modalities I have experienced either help to manage symptoms or actually improve function, some do both, and some just improve the quality of life. More modalities and interviews may be added as time goes by, and more success stories, maybe even yours.
Here’s to our success in becoming curable!
