Meeting Mike and his ‘go for life’ on the Golf Course…


Today was our golfing day, we were playing the Palms at Pompano Beach.  We were partnered up with Mike… who was moving quiet strangely as we introduced ourselves to each other…  and seeing our concern he told us ‘I jump around a bit, I have Parkinsons’…   Oh how I admire people with ailments getting on with life, getting out there and enjoying life… no matter how people judge you for being anything but ‘normal’… or how frustrating it can be for you…

Mike was a great golfer, he lived locally and played often… he knew exactly how to play the ball… and get it into the hole… His body might of had its moments of ‘jumping’ and ‘time-out’ but Mike was patient with himself and enjoyed his round of golf with new friends on a great sunny floridian day…

Mike, we take our hat of too you, its not easy… we all take too much for granted, but I wanted to Thankyou for showing us patience, caring and most important of all to go for life and enjoy…  We had a great golfing day with you.

Reflecting my day, I had the urge to look up Parkinson’s and what the holistic community said about it… like with many other dis-eases (of the body) the medical community labelled them as ‘incurable’, terminal, chronic, chemical imbalance needing drugs, etc… etc… and as we continue to TRUST our doctors we believe it and swallow the drugs and live with our disease until ….

Directly I came across a website ‘Fighting Parkinsons Drug Free’ by Howard Shifke who has holistically healed himself of Parkinsons…  He believes that anger, frustration, resentment, a greasy and sweet diet and too much work and not enough sleep all contribute to the electric circuit of the body shutting down… stress causes adrenaline to shut down the production of dopamine that transmits brain signals between the brain and the body.  He lives in Miami,  Florida and I wonder if Mike has met him or even read his website..  I am posting a link to his wonderful website so that others can read about his thoughts on the causes of Parkinsons and his recovery.

Howard is a man after my own heart… he says…

‘I have the power to heal myself’
‘You have the power to heal yourself’
‘Together we have the power to heal the world’

Thankyou Mike and Howard…  for coming into my life so that I can share this living and healing experience with others…
