This Man Heals His Parkinson’s Disease Just in 7 Months!
Many people accept that there is no cure for Parkinson’s Disease (PD) diagnosis. Their solution is to rely on pharmaceuticals to mask or “cover” the symptoms and buy some time while the disease progresses. That’s not surprising at all because in the mainstream medicine’s world there is no official cure for PD. Parkinson’s Disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, with symptoms appearing slowly and worsening over time until the person’s passing. But there are some patients who refuse to give up and to believe this dark prognosis. Howard Shifke is one of those patients.
Howard felt the first symptoms in September 2009. Two months later he “got” the diagnosis of PD by a neurologist just like his mother, also at the age of 48. His mother used drugs to treat PD; her treatment had no hope of ever defeating the illness, and she eventually passed.
“…In the end, it seemed like the drugs took their toll and played as much a part in her passing as did the disease itself,” Howard writes on his site.
Howard wanted to try a different way. He knew that this disease could have a genetic component. But when he made research of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), he discovered other big factors and contributors of PD:
-Blood deficiency: caused by emotional stress
-Consumption of greasy, fried and sweet foods
-Heavy metal toxicity: mercury from tuna fish consumption for example
– Liver and Kidney Deficiencies: caused by overwork and insufficient rest
-Negative emotions such as resentment, anger and frustration
“…These are the things and factors that made me more prone to the disease, … for a long time they actually allowed the disease to grow inside me until it reared its ugly head in September of 2009,” Howard writes.
Howard thinks there is nothing that cannot be cured. He refused taking drugs and took full responsibility for healing his disease himself. Of course he had his progress monitored by his neurologist.
Howard explains “I had to take personal responsibility for having the disease. That leads to taking personal responsibility for recovering from the disease,” .
He created his own protocol of exercise using a 5,000-year-old Chinese healing modality for body and brain health. The purpose was of course to defeat his PD, called Qigong. While meditating, vegetarian diet and using affirmations for stress played a small role, the biggest part in his recovery played Qigong (which Howard initially learned about from “Teach Yourself Chi Kung”) .
The neurologist could not find a single PD symptom in Howard. Just 7 months after his diagnosis he was actually cured. Seven years later, this man is still free of Parkinson’s disease.
“In few days I’ll be 7 years with no Parkinson’s symptoms. On June 12, 2017 exactly. Seven years with no Parkinson’s Disease. I am cured. I am gratefuland I am joyful.” he writes.
Understanding Qigong and Using it for healing Parkinson’s Disease
Qigong is an ancient holistic healing system involving movement of energy in the body. It involves slow-moving exercises with deep breathing technique. Qigong Master Mingtong Gu explains that it helps patients with PD and other neuro degenerative diseases (dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other) by connecting the brain energetically with the body, which in these groups of patients is always disconnected.
Qigong opens up and releases the blockages in the the nervous system, shoulders, and the spine. It creates a new energy flow, and communication between the brain and the body.
According to Gu, cumulative stress and emotional stress are the biggest causes of PD. Qigong directly affects the places in the body where stress is stored. It unblocks these areas and releases the energy to flow freely and normally again.
Qigong is amazing tool not only for neuro degenerative diseases. Anyone can benefit from its preventative properties. Everyone can deepen mental capacity, feel more empowered, enhance all functions of the body and have more vitality.

Scientific Research Shows That Parkinson’s Patients Can Have Benefits from Qigong
When it comes to disease, Qigong has been successful in helping the healing process in a lot of health issues. Parkinson’s Disease is only one of these conditions.
studies published between 1993 and 2007 brought a comprehensive review of the health benefits of Qigong as well as Tai Chi. This last one is a slow-movement and breathes work martial art form. Both techniques had significant health benefits.They showed similar results in comparison to each other.
American and Chinese scientists recognize that so far only small population studies have been done. The world needs large population for this treatment to become a part of modern medicine.
For now, people are using this technique because they decided to do that. Like Howard used on his own hands. For him, the results were unbelievable and inarguable. While he acknowledges that no technique is a perfect fit for everyone, he also explains the protocol that helped him.
The Healing Protocol of the Alternative Medicine for Parkinson’s Disease
He used the following exercises:
- Medical Qigong: for the kidneys and for the liver
