I hope this latest entry in my video diary gives people all over the world affected by Parkinson's all the proof they need that it is very possible to reverse the symptoms of the disease and also to significantly improve their quality of life.
For anyone who has not been following me on this journey from the outset, I would like to invite you to briefly review the video diary entries, in date order, here and make the contrasts with my most recent video above. Looking at the very first videos we made on dyskinesia control, you will see documented the changes in my personality: from dour and serious to having a sense humour again. Then proceeding onto the early entries on bradykinesia, you have the documentary proof that it is now undoubtedly possible to achieve mammoth reversal in physical symptoms. As things progress, you can note that even quite recently I had balance issues and was having to correct myself with stumbles to stop from falling. Compare this result with how I am now doing acrobatics, balanced on one foot. Also please note the dramatic changes in my quality of voice, how the nasal quality has diminished. And look how the animation and expressions on my face has improved remarkably too.
It is and has always been my desire that this video record will be used to inspire people to unlearn their learned helplessness when it comes to living with Parkinson's Disease, to open eyes to the truth. There really is nothing special about me, apart from perhaps the steel of my determination. This is the appliance of science, engineering and wellness research in action. So I hope you will help us to spread the word that there is everything to play for in reversing the symptoms and the decline of Parkinson's.
For reference, Out-Thinking Parkinson's began on January 5th 2016. We started from a completely blank canvas when my condition and the side effects of the medication were clearly very pronounced. As I write this, it is 30th March 2016. Less than 3 months later. Please imagine, just imagine, if we had started from the point of what we know now.
We have not even begun to optimize all the quality of life interventions we have put into place, neither in isolation nor combination. And we know there are many, many more things still waiting in the wings to be added to the mix. So further reversals are not only possible, but definite.
Keep on moving. Keep on living.
