I assume in Chinese medicine that Parkinsons is considered a severe wind condition. My Mother in law has had Parkinsons since she was in her mid to late thirties, she is now very close to fifty. Seven years ago she had a surgery implanting wires into her chest and brain to aid in muscular movement, it's worked very well thankfully. The medications she is given I believe are part of the problem. The medicine works to help her movement, but the residual effects can be bad and varied. Now she is told that Osteoperosis is beginning in her spine despite her efforts to up her calcium intake (due to kemo drugs). One year ago she had a very small cancerous lump taken from her breast and her kemotherapy has had its effects as well.
I am a massage therapist who has taken many Chinese medicine courses so I have a great knowledge of the basics of Chinese medicine, five phase theory, acupoint combinations etc. I use acupressure on most of my clients.
Dr. Halevi if you could please suggest something herbal and physical I would greatly appreciate it. Her condition is begining to get worse and I very much wish to help.
I also am a Reiki master and I find that she responds very well to a Reiki session.
Thanks for your book it is great, I use it very often! If you plan on writing anymore I would love a book about diagnosing in Chinese medicine.

Hi Sean. Sorry to hear about your mother's condition. It is nice to hear that you treat your mom so assiduously and I am certain you can contribute a lot to her. My experience shows that, in contrast with western medical view, she'd be better off without any milk products, despite the high content of calcium in it. Let her have her calcium intake from vegeterian foods such as: Soya, tehina, sesame, broccoli, almonds, and also sardines and tuna fish. You may also frequently stimulate her kidneys by the chopstick therapy as the kidneys are responsible for bone metabolism (according to TCM). The best however, would have been if you could find a specialist in Chinese medicine to examine and treat her according to her real condition which I can't assess from afar.
Thank you for your kind view of my book and have a happy new year, both you and your mom.
