After years of working with persons who have the symptoms of Parkinson’s I have two observations to report. First, most people with Parkinson’s do not realize there are dozens of options that are helping people reverse their symptoms: natural therapies, herbs, alternative approaches, various healing modalities, body work – you name it. Further, most people are not aware that some people have had a full recovery and are symptom free today.
Second, sustaining the lifestyle changes that are needed on a day to day basis is the true challenge. Many people eventually do figure out what they can do for themselves to feel better - things like eating good food, detoxing their organs and tissues from heavy metals, pesticides and pathogens, coping better with daily stresses and healing traumas in their life. But how do you make these changes a part of your daily routine? It is not easy.
We know for the most part what we should do for ourselves to feel better. But for a variety of reasons – some conscious and some unconscious - most of us find it difficult to commit to a daily practice of healthy living.
Let’s face it. We all fall off the wagon. We know what little pleasures we have always treasured that are bad for our health. We know if we eat sugar we will feel terrible. We know what happens when we eat foods we are allergic to. We all love to eat comfort food because it makes us feel happy for a few minutes. After the few minutes of bliss we feel lousy. Sound familiar? And we do it over and over again.
Why are we our own worst enemy ….
Because we do not have the day in and day out support we need to stay on track. This is why I have created a membership program that encourages people to maintain a healthy lifestyle so they can manifest their commitment to feel good again.

What is a Parkinsons Recovery Membership?
I interview people with Parkinsons from all over the world who are getting good relief from their symptoms. I document their stories. As a member, you read all about it.
I interview some people who have fully recovered. I document how they helped themselves become symptom free. As a member, you read all about it.
New treatments are being discovered every month that are helping people with Parkinson’s feel better. I interview the people who are making these discoveries. I document what their approach does and how it works. As a member, you read all about it.
I do not believe for one minute that any one therapy, drug or medical intervention will “cure” Parkinson’s. No “cure” exists today. From what I now understand about Parkinson’s a “cure” that “fixes” all the symptoms of Parkinsons is not possible.
The reality is that the factors that create the symptoms of Parkinson’s are multifaceted. Underlying reasons for symptoms differ from one person to the next, often significantly. Everybody’s situation is unique.
I have concluded from hundreds of interviews that health challenges and symptoms are highly individualized. Therapies and approaches that can help you feel a great deal better are connected to the particular factors that are causing your symptoms. What helps you feel better may be of little or no help whatsoever to someone else with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s.
Membership in Parkinsons Recovery is all about having access to a hub of information and resources that offer you the information and support needed to feel better. There are so many exciting choices to consider. What are they?
I assemble all of the available information on options for recovery on the member website. This information captures the latest updates in the same place. I report anything from anywhere that offers a shred of hope.
My goal is to provide the support everyone needs to steer a steady course to recovery. Everyone has a bad day here and there. Everyone has days that reinforce the belief they will never feel better. Membership offers a healthy choice during those difficult days.

Where can you go when you get discouraged?
Where can you go when you need the motivation to do what you know helps you feel better?
Where can you go to be reminded what you need to do today to feel better?
It is easier to steer a steady and determined course to help yourself feel better when you are on the same path as hundreds of other people with Parkinson’s.
I created the Parkinsons Recovery membership to provide …
Everywhere I look – the internet or health care providers or families affected by Parkinson’s – I am overwhelmed with one negative thought form after another. Most people believe Parkinsons is a “degenerative” disease. Once you get it – you are destined to get worse.
Guess what? It’s not true. I believe words like “degenerative” are prophetic for those who believe they are true. If you believe you are destined to feel worse, you will feel worse. If you believe you will feel better, you will feel better. The secret is out. Our thoughts and beliefs determine our future.
My research reveals that the belief Parkinsons is “degenerative” is entirely untrue. It is possible to feel better. It is possible to find good relief from symptoms. People are doing it now. People have actually fully recovered.
I created the Parkinsons Recovery membership to offer …
What works for someone else may fizzle for you. Then again, it may be exactly what you need to start feeling better. When you begin to feel better, you will have more strength and motivation to do everything that is needed to become healthier with each passing day.
I created the Parkinsons Recovery membership to spread …
Nothing like this exists anywhere. All I encounter out in the internet ethers is gloom and doom about Parkinson’s. There is no reason to be pessimistic.
The body is simply out of balance. It happens. The body just needs a little extra support to get back on track. What must you do for yourself to make this happen?
The answers come out every week at the Parkinsons Recovery web site. The web site is alive. It is vibrant. It is exciting to be part of a growing community of people who are proving to themselves, their families and their health care providers that the most exciting times of their lives are yet to come. The end of life is not around the corner. The beginning has just arrived.
What happens when Peter Graves visits the Parkinsons Recovery website every week day? He …
Listen to interviews with national experts in their respective fields who can tell you what they do, how they do it, how much it costs, how you can try it out if you are interested, and how it has helped their clients with Parkinsons. Learn about dream work, Bowen therapy, craniosacral therapy, flower essences, reflexology, reiki, energy healing, family constellation work, massage, acupuncture, tai chi, Pilates, emotional freedom technique, neuro-linguistic programming, drumming, bio feedback, hyperbolic pressure chambers, music, stem cell implants, deep brain stimulation, singing, herbal therapy, ayurveda … Have I left anything out?
Most certainly. The list is endless. I talk with people with Parkinsons who tell me what helps. I document what they say. I talk with national experts (medical doctors, naturopaths, psychologists, physical therapists, counselors, etc.) who explain exactly how their approaches, therapies and treatments work and why they are helping people with Parkinsons. I document their stories.
- Laughs- The best medicine for helping the body to produce dopamine naturally is laughter. It is better than any medication or supplement or herb you can take. Where do you go to find something funny to laugh at every day? You visit the member web site of course.I think the jokes I post are funny. They make me laugh. I know you will find some of them funny so you will laugh out loud, That is the whole point. That is what gives your body a dopamine rush. I imagine you will discover a joke here or there that you think is stupid or silly or dumb. You may even question my sanity. Great. Laugh at me. It does not even have to be funny. Just laugh. Laugh every day. You will feel better because of it.
- Exercises the Mind- Research clearly demonstrates that new neural pathways can be created every day. It is called plasticity. Neural pathways that are blocked and obstructed can create pain and cause tremors. If you are patient, they will rejuvenate themselves. The body has creative ways of healing itself. How does this happen? In part it happens by challenging yourself to solve problems and puzzles. You will have new mind twisters to solve on the web site every day along with new Sudoku puzzles. You have never heard of Sudoku? Ah ha. Here is a challenge for you to solve today. Go for it. In part it happens by doing mind work that is periodically posted on the web site. You get a chance to participate in just about every memory exercise imaginable – from remembering words and numbers to drumming specific rhythms to repeating sentences backward. Every new exposure helps carve new neural pathways, so the memory exercises are always varied to yield the maximum renewal of neural networks. Doug Mind Work is just like watching Monte Python.
- Gets great ideas for healthy eating -What we put into our bodies has a profound influence on how we feel. Have you been feeling lousy this week? The question that solves this problem is simple: What have you been eating? If you continue with the same eating habits, you are unlikely to get well. How about trying a different approach? Prepare a dish from a new recipe that uses food that your body needs to sustain health. If you want to change eating habits the opportunity to do so awaits you when you visit the Parkinsons Recovery member web site. Discover a new recipe that uses fresh, raw foods every day.Challenge yourself to change your eating habits. Buy the food you need at the store listed in the recipe. Prepare it. Eat it. You will feel better. Be amazed at how good natural foods taste. OK. Maybe you will not find all the recipes to be delicious. But you may be surprised how good real food tastes! Take delight in how much better you will feel when you accept the challenge of preparing and eating a new natural food.Change the eating habits that may be making you ill and you will feel better soon.
|I read your Parkinsons Recovery articles every day and it fills me with hope. It has taught me a great deal, I want to thank you.Mike|
- Exercises the body – The research on Parkinsons has converged to a sound conclusion. Exercise helps you feel better. The more you exercise the better you will feel.The membership web site offers a new exercise every day by way of reminding you how important exercise is to your health. The daily exercise takes 1-2 minutes. Who cannot take the time out to do a 2 minute exercise every day? The reminder to exercise stares you in the face every day you visit the member web site.The more you exercise, the better you will feel. This means, exercise every day is what counts. Not every other day. Not every week. Every day. Experiment with new ways of moving your body. Your body will thank you.
- Tracks Symptoms - The primary reason people falter on the road to recovery is they are actually feeling better but do not realize it. I find this to be true with person after person I have worked with who has Parkinson’s.I observe dramatic improvements such as:
- Last week there was no expression on their face. Today their face is alive with life.
- Last week they were in pain. This week they are pain free.
- Last week they had a high level of anxiety. This week their anxiety is under control.
Most people fail to acknowledge to themselves the improvements they are making to their health. Instead, they draw their attention to a symptom that continues to be problematic (like a hand tremor or insomnia). We know that recovery does not happen quickly. It took time to develop the symptoms. It will take time for your body to heal. If you believe that you are not improving, it is difficult to sustain the motivation to continue the habits that are needed to recover your health. You can track your symptoms whenever you wish on the member website. This way, the symptoms that have improved will yell out to you “See – you are getting better.” This provides the motivation that you will need to remain steadfast on the road to recovery.
- Communicates With Others -Parkinsons Recovery members are invited to join the Sunday Connections conference calls. I am a member of the rotating panel of hosts. Hosts answer any and all questions and promise to research the answer if I do not know it off the top of my head.
Hosts of course are not qualified to answer questions about prescription medications, but I can report back to you what I have learned about dozens of other natural and safe therapies that are rooted in a wide variety of medical specialties. During the conference calls you can always ask other people what they are doing to get relief from their symptoms. Speaking quite frankly, the best information comes from people who tell us about their experience with using specific therapies that are natural and safe to use.
The agenda is set by you. Have you been wondering whether people really exist with Parkinsons are recovering? Have you wondered whether Robert Rodgers, Ph.D. is making up stories of recovery from Parkinson’s? If so, I extend to you a warm invitation to participate in the conference calls.
Parkinsons Recovery is dedicated to building a community of persons on the road to recovery. One of the ways I am fulfilling this mission is by hosting the conference calls and administering the Sunday Connections Program at Parkinsons Recovery.

Membership at Parkinsons Recovery solves three problems for people with Parkinsons
1. Membership provides useful, trustworthy information about a wide variety of therapies, approaches and modalities located in one place and updated continuously.
If you have Parkinsons and have been searching for information about therapies and approaches that have the promise of helping relieve your symptoms, you have probably discovered there are endless sources of information about drugs, herbs and therapies that offer the promise of relief. Some of this information is sorely outdated. Much of it does not specifically relate to Parkinson’s.
The wealth of choices is simply overwhelming. Who can you trust will help? Who are the rip off artists, the scammers and the liars? How can you believe what you read?
Membership at Parkinsons Recovery helps focus your search for answers. I interview people with Parkinsons who report on their actual experience with a wide variety of modalities. This is how I get the names of people to interview who are experts in their respective fields. You get the real scoop from the top professionals in their field. You get great ideas from people and places you never imagined existed.

2. Membership provides support and resources to help you sustain the habits that are necessary to feel better.
If you are thinking that membership will offer a pill, therapy, modality or program that will “cure” you or “fix” you please do not sign up. If you want someone else to fix you, do not bother becoming a member. It is a waste of your money.
But …If you want to help yourself feel better and are interested in
- Learning what helps other people
- Visiting the membership web site regularly
- Doing the activities that are offered
Membership at Parkinsons Recovery is a must. It will become your home away from home, a lifeline of support for your recovery, a place where you will find hope that it is always possible to feel better.
3. Membership offers eternal hope.
I talk with people all over the globe and hear the same frustration from many people.
“It depresses me to surf the internet about Parkinson’s. Everything is so negative and down beat. There is talk about nursing homes and wheel chairs and walkers. Even the words are depressing, words like ‘degenerative’, ‘progressive” ‘debilitating’, ‘end stage’. Everyone wants to sell me products because I am sick.”
Parkinsons Recovery membership offers you hope. My belief is that anyone can feel better. If by chance you believe in your heart that you will get worse, you are destined to get worse. I espouse the belief that anyone can feel better. Anything is possible. Miracles happen every day. We are all about giving examples and stories from people who are proving it is possible to feel better.
Warning: If you are looking for good information about nursing homes or wheel chairs, don’t count on finding it at the Parkinsons Recovery membership site. Don’t waste your dollar hoping to find information about how to help you cope as you become sick. We are not about helping you cope as you become sicker. We are all about helping you cope as your gain your health and get your life back.
