Title: What I've learned from my Parkinson's Disease
Post by: Richard OFfill on January 06, 2018, 12:04:54 PM
Several years ago I shared that I have Parkinsonís Disease. There is no cure and all one can attempt to do is to hold it back. Michael Fox has a foundation to try to find a cure. Science has discovered the Where of the disease but not the Why.

Two symptoms that are typical are tremors and a problem with balance, I have both. There is, however, a drug for the tremors which I take four times a day and for which I am very thankful.

You might be asking yourself, Pastor, why are you sharing all of this? Let me tell you what I am in the process of learning: First I recognize that this for the rest of my life (I will be 78 this year). This is not Godís punishing me. He is not that way. I am His 78 year son. By the way, I was looking at my birth certificate. It has an expiration date! Is will be 20??. (I couldnít make out the exact dates), seriously the mortality rate for our race is 100%!

Secondly I am learning to be compassionate. Someone once said, ďI complained that I had no shoes until I saw the man that had no feet.

And thirdly He promised that whatever came to me he would give us strength to bear it and He is! Donít worry about me. If you should see me, you will notice the tremors, my slowness and my attention to balance. We all have a burden to carry. Jesus did and he over-came and has gone to prepare for a place for us. I thank God for my wife Betty.

We who are afflicted appreciate your prayers. (Betty has to help me button my shirt). If you are like Betty, caring for us who are afflicted, we are praying for you too!

I can relate, both on balance and one finger typing. HOWEVER  There are two ways to cheat death. 

1. Outlive death straight through to the Second coming ( only a % of earth's population have the option.)

2. Abide in Christ and REMAIN preserved in Him, and sleep through death, never entering it , out lasting it.  ( A wider option .)

There is no third option - Death cheats, death rigged the roulette wheel - the house always wins against all who try to find a third option, don't gamble; go with option #1. or #2.  The payoff is an eternal annuity with progressive never ending dividends.

May God bless you and keep you, Pastor, as you deal with your disability day by day.  What a comfort God is.  He is there to lean on, to talk to, to cry with, and to be our All in All.  I think there is a certain freedom in trusting God for our daily needs and cares.

A recent report just came out...and unfortunately you won't hear it on the evening news or many of the other research items that are significant to our health.

Years ago we were told that if you used roundup on your weeds that after 7 days it would be biodegraded in the soil.  Well, that wasn't true.  Testing of the soils decades  afterward, have shown that the glycoside remains in the soils for years and does not biodegrade.

The plants mainly corn and soybeans are genetically modified to withstand the weed killer and therefore huge amounts of glycoside residues are sustained on the corn and soybeans. 

Then the gmo corn and beans are harvested for market.  Mostly chickens are fed these products but some is mixed into the feed of pigs and other livestock.  Once it is in their systems the glycoside gets concentrated in the fat (biomagnification) and becomes very toxic.  It is also in the products that come from the animals such as the eggs and dairy products. 

They have found that it is this chemical in the roundup that is causing so much Parkinson's disease in many people that have no history of it in their background.  In other words, it's coming from the meat, cheese, dairy, eggs, etc. and mainly from the chickens.

There is a doctor (he is not sda), that has dedicated his life to reviewing all the research on many health problems and he has published all that he has found out.  Check out his site.  His name is Dr. Michael Greger at  https://nutritionfacts.org/

You will be shocked at some of the things he has uncovered that could really help people.

If you want me to post other shocking research giving us the causes of other diseases just let me know.
