Can you see it. Of course you can become better!!

Most diseases are very stress-related. e.g. Parkinson's – that we can all agree. But are we missing something obvious that might help? We need to gather together knowledge that is already out there and then “connects the dots” so I will do my best here to gather together the following already existing findings and add some of my own insights.

Below is a man with Parkinson's. He has problems walking, which is a typical Parkinson's symptom. According to the current belief, this is a sign that he has a problem with dopamine in his brain, and this is easy to see in the first half of the video.

In the second half of the video, you can see him biking without any problem, which is a sign that he has no problem with his dopamine production.

What’s going on? The answer to this strange phenomenon is that something gives him a limitation in the dopamine while walking, but not while he is biking. Other people can have problems driving or they might have no problems driving but difficulty with something else. Every person has a unique combination of symptoms and unique scenarios as to when they are having particular symptoms or not having them.

Below is an exciting shoe design that lets Parkinson's people with freeze symptoms walk with "ease" due to a beam of light on the floor. So here you see that a visual sign that can catch your attention and help you. The person that has problems with freeze episodes will, with these shoes, be able to walk.

Below you see a man with Parkinson’s who needs a walker to make his way across a room but who can easily walk downstairs. This is because he is focused on the task at hand, rather than his regular distracted thinking routine. After all, he knows that the stairs need attention if he does not want to fall. It is not the time for distracted thinking when your next step can cause you pain if you do it wrong. It is time for focus and attention.  So our standard flat floor and pavement are not stimulating our brain in a good way. The brain gets “lazy” and gives you time to think about challenges that are NOT in front of you.

If you combine the above strange observations with the videos below, you are close to solving the mystery about Parkinson's disease.

Below you will hear that dancing helps people with Parkinson's disease. So after dancing for an hour, these people feel better. On YouTube, you can find numerous videos talking about the benefits of dancing.

Boxing is also good to reduce Parkinson’s symptoms.

You can find a lot of videos about other ways you can improve Parkinson's symptoms (and these activities will help with a lot of other diseases as well.)

What is happening? The answer is that we are actually going in and out of our survival instincts all the time and this is causing symptoms. We can not help it. It is our body trying to keep us alive.

Here is the theory explained:

We all know how animals behave: run when they are in flight instinct (=exercise), fight when in the fight instinct (=boxing, as an example), and have an intense tremor when coming out of the freeze instinct. The last half of this video shows the freeze instinct which animals use when they cannot run or fight and are close to death.

I help people with Parkinson’s to find their way OUT of instincts because that is the culprit in Parkinson's disease and many other diseases. I am a biologist, coach, and therapist, so I have a good perspective to see these similarities between humans and animals, and I have worked for several years with Parkinson’s clients. (One client has been rescanned and is now free of his Parkinson’s diagnosis.)

I have made a six-week online course about this theory and how you can get better systematically. se more here

Over several years I have studied Parkinson's people who got better or healed and also have a handful of my own clients that are slowly improving by the systematic concept that I call HOPE Shortcut.

You can use the ideas you see here to help reduce symptoms, but the most effective way to improve is to STOP yourself from going INTO these survival instincts, and that is how a therapist like me can help you. Join my course and get the knowledge you need to find a more systematic road to better health.

More videos:

Big and loud? This behavior also drags you out of instincts. No one wants to be big and loud when a tiger is close but it also works the other way around which can be used to your advantage. You become relaxed when you make noise and move with self-confidence when no predators are around you.

Here is a search with articles about Tai chi ... it also works on Parkinson's. You can find similar articles with yoga, Qi Gong, meditation... But the story is the same: EVERYTHING that makes you relax improves Parkinson's.

And here’s a link to the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA):

The relationship between stress, anxiety and Parkinson’s disease

This page suggests some of the many things you can do to reduce symptoms. Just choose an activity, believe in it, and be persistent. The hardest part is to step out of medication as dopamine stimulates your mood but can often give you side effects similar to your Parkinson's symptoms. And dopamine is degraded to adrenaline, a stress hormone that kickstarts the fight, flight, and freeze reaction in the body…

Complicated? Yes, that is why you need help from the HOPE Shortcut course. The guys that heal the quickest are the ones that get 1:1 coaching from me. And do you know what? They already know that this is the truth and they contact me within 14 days of finding me and my group. Why? Because they have been searching for a coach like me. Are you one of these guys that are ready to invest time and money in your own health, write to liliansjoeberg@gmail.com and I will send you a form so you can apply for a free 30 minutes call with me.

Be in the Moment and Discover what Movement is Essential for you

biking

Biking helps me get rid of adrenaline ad is an important part of my dayly activities. By joining my bikink class i can help you with the same. You only need an indoor bike and a computer in front of you to join.

Balance

Yoga has helped me immensely to find more balance for my movement disorder. So much so that I decided to become a yoga teacher because I think it is something that can be very beneficial to many people with movement disorders.

Just Breathe

 I have my 200 hour yoga teacher training certification and also I have an additional certification which specializes me in teaching yoga for people with Parkinson’s. I was trained by a yoga therapist by the name of Theresa Conroy who has been doing yoga for the Parkinson’s foundation for more than 10 years. I am in the process of creating a free exercise program for people with movement disorders.

“it’s gentle enough that anyone can do it”

I really enjoy taking yoga classes with Jacob. With my physical limitations it has helped me with focusing on my breathing and taking breaks or stretching as needed. Also, I like the fact that it’s gentle enough that anyone can do it and if you can’t do a certain move you can modify it to what you can do. I’m so grateful that you are doing these classes ~ Thank you​

“For me, inactivity can also lead to pain and discomfort”

I’ve been attending Jake’s virtual cycling class for a little over a month now. I like cycling because it puts little pressure on my joints but is an extremely effective exercise. Virtual cycling is even better than doing it on my own, it adds a social aspect (we chat while stretching before cycling) and also adds accountability. Both things I need, especially during covid times. I had greatly decreased my activeness due to covid. For me, inactivity can also lead to joint pain and discomfort from my rheumatoid arthritis. Jake is a great teacher and has incorporated stretches into our routine tailored for each persons’ mobility.

“I am so pleased”

I am so pleased to be participating in the Virtual Yoga Class with Jacob Kidney.
This class is especially for people with movement disorders, with participants from around the world. He has shown himself to be a very caring & genuine person, who focuses on the student’s needs & abilities. He checks in prior to the class, to let us know what his plan for the class is, and if we have any concerns in being able to perform the planned activities. He is very concerned about each individual, finding that perfect balance between not pushing too far…but still challenging us to do what we are able. I enjoy the flow of the class. Starting out with a brief “how are you” & “meet other group participants”. Then class begins with relaxation breathing, yoga exercises, & some free-style movements. He plays a variety of music, has an encouraging & calming presence, while providing very clear instructions, stressing safety & modified ways to perform the movements. After class he asks how we are feeling, if we had any particularly difficult exercises, and reviews exercises we can do throughout the week. Love this class! ​
