Fighting Parkinson's...and Winning. A memoir of one man's full recovery from Parkinson's Disease
He had watched his mother deteriorate in body and mind for 24 years before finally succumbing to the disease. Two years later, he was told he also had the disease. But he took a different path than the one his mother had taken, devising his own healing plan from what he had learned in the 10 years he spent studying Chinese medicine.
His philosophy of Parkinson's is that he was out of balance physically, mentally and spiritually, and once balance was restored, full recovery took place. Western medicine's view of Parkinson's is that there are dead brain cells and depleted dopamine in the brain. Shifke's position is that the brain cells are not dead and the dopamine is not depleted, but that instead the dopamine flow is blocked.
In the eight years since his recovery, he has regularly posted to his blog and has coached others who have followed his plan and experienced similar recoveries. His website is https://www.fightingparkinsonsdrugfree.com/
A native Floridian, Shifke and his wife moved from Tampa to Oregon in 2016, where he reads, gardens and continues to coach people from around the world in his recovery methodology.
