John Pepper on Parkinson’s: Learning to Walk…Again
September 11, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm$10
$10 each or $15 per couple
John Pepper, the maverick South African Parkinson’s disease campaigner, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1992 when he was 58. He has spent the past 13 years traveling the world promoting his non-medical technique of managing Parkinson’s symptoms.
After being diagnosed, Mr Pepper took up the challenge of managing his symptoms by focusing his mind on his walking action. This has changed the neurological pathways in his brain, corrected the typical Parkinson’s shuffle and reduced his hand tremors.
“After some difficult years of trial and error my symptoms have become less obvious,” Mr Pepper said.
“I have not needed to take any medication or see a neurologist for the past 13 years and I am now at the stage where, despite having had Parkinson’s for almost 25 years, the symptoms are barely noticeable.”
Whether or not you have Parkinson’s, watching and learning about Mr. Pepper’s mind over matter techniques will open doorways of understanding… or just plain amazement…or great hope.
