This video entry shows where I am at in early November, 2016, some ten months after the start of the Out-Thinking Parkinson's project. I hope this demonstrates that the holistic non-medical, non-surgical quality of life interventions we have been developing, experimenting with and practicing do indeed have significant merit for coping with Parkinson's Disease.
I still have "off" periods and like anybody with Parkinson's, have some very bad days and the occasional freeze up too. However, the bad days are getting further apart, the "off" states are nowhere as bad as they pre-2016 especially in terms of pain and rigidity, nor in terms of loss of voice. My mood has significantly improved, but of course there is still a lot of sadness around living with the disease for eight years, and especially the effect it has had on the people around me.
For context, I also include a video of myself from back in January 2016, which I hope helps to further demonstrate how significant my recovery has been and hence the efficacy of this approach for improving quality of life of People affected by Parkinson's.
