Meet John Pepper: Walking Off Parkinson's - As described in "The Brain's Wa...
Wed, 12 October 2016, 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM EDT
Mr Pepper’s success has recently be highlighted by renowned Canadian psychiatrist, Dr Norman Doidge who, in his latest book ‘The Brain’s Way of Healing’, dedicated a chapter to Mr Pepper’s management technique.
John Pepper was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1992. After only six years of regular, energetic exercise, he no longer appears to have Parkinson’s, although he still has many of the symptoms.
John is not claiming to be “cured” of Parkinson’s, rather wants to share his story about how he is able to lead a relatively normal life today, despite having Parkinson’s. His positive attitude and determination to stay ahead of this terrifying condition highlight a new approach to dealing with Parkinson’s.
This is our second event. The first event on the 11th of October has sold out.
He will be giving a seminar in the Niagara Region for people affected by Parkinson’s, their carers, and those who work with PD patients. John will describe his unique way of managing Parkinson’s symptoms as well as explain and demonstrate his ‘Conscious Control of Movement’.
He has spent the past 13 years traveling the world promoting his non-medical technique of managing Parkinson’s symptoms. This has changed the neurological pathways in his brain, corrected the typical Parkinson’s shuffle and reduced his hand tremors.
