In 1995, John Coleman was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and suffered from the loss of speech and the inability to walk 5 meters without assistance. Severely dissatisfied with western medical treatment and prognosis, John decided to pursue other methods, and with the aid of homeopathy, alternative therapies, counseling, meditation and spiritual development, he was completely symptom-free within three and a half years…
John is a member of the Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association and has written a book called, Stop Parkin’ and Start Livin’, a do-it-yourself book on reversing the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. He carefully avoids the word cure, however:
“I believe we will never find a single cure for any disease. There is no cure for any disease. There are therapies, in both western medicine and complementary medicine, that assist people to recover their health.”
He named his Web site, as well as his naturopathic practice, Return To Stillness. He focuses on helping people find their individual road to complete health, whether from Parkinson’s disease or other affliction. John’s story is covered in Mind, Body & Soul.
