My mother was diagnosed with the symptoms of Parkinsons after experiencing mobility challenges. She elected to take a number of prescription medications, but none seemed to provide her with the relief she was seeking. Over time, she added more and more medications to her daily routine for her Parkinson’s and a variety of other conditions. She died from a stroke which I believe was caused by the complications and interactions of over ten different medications.
From the day of her death in 1998, I set on a path to search for natural therapies that are safe and cause no harmful side effects. I hold the belief that the body knows how to heal itself. It just needs a little help remembering how.
I established Parkinsons Recovery in 2004 to provide support, information and resources to families with a member currently experiencing the symptoms of Parkinsons.

Welcome to all with an interest in Parkinson’s Disease. This blog was to be an information clearinghouse for the Anchorage Parkinson’s Disease Support Group, where meeting schedules, agendas, speakers etc could be found. It’s still that, but has also become a sort of therapeutic hobby. So I invite you to join in the discussion and experience a little therapy as well. This will be as interesting as we as a community make it. Think loud and sound off!
My name is John Pepper, and I have successfully reversed Parkinson’s disease, to the point where I no longer need to take any medication. It has now been over ten years since I last took any Parkinson’s disease medication. I was Diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1992, I managed to reverse Parkinson’s disease and I stopped taking Parkinson’s medication in 2003. With the knowledge I have gained, since I was diagnosed, I have realized that my symptoms began in the early 1960’s, when I became aware that I could not throw a ball properly.
My physical and mental condition has improved so much that other people, even my close friends, have no clue that I still have Parkinson’s disease. I even had to convince a leading international research scientist and author, that I had Parkinson’s disease in 1992; and after he had convinced himself, through exhaustive investigations, he could only stand in absolute amazement.
