What would you say?

My husband, John, is simply the most awesome #1 support.

When I said I wanted a Rhoades Car, for bicycling. he didn’t flinch. Before our solar assisted vehicle arrived, he had installed a ramp up to the double doors and moved things around so we can use part of his shop for a garage for the Rhoades Car.

I read: “Sauna use has also been shown to increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF).  BDNF is like fertilizer for our brains.  Indeed, increased BDNF can improve cognitive function and memory.” (Dr John Day)

With the help of my sweetheart…

“Another benefit of infrared sauna… Detoxification of Chemicals and Heavy Metals… The skin is a major detox organ, and sweating through the skin is a critical human detox function, yet most people don’t sweat regularly or enough. The body is very effective at eliminating toxins via the skin (and the liver, and the poo), but the skin side of things only really works if you make your body sweat. But many of us sit in air-conditioned indoor environments all day, and even gyms with temperature control can be a tough place to work up a serious sweat. So in these type of situations, you completely miss out on a major source of toxin elimination: the skin.”

When I read about the benefits of infrared sauna… John didn’t flinch. When our very own infrared sauna arrived, he immediately set to work setting it up out in his shop, although it further cramped his work space. Additionally, he sits in the sauna and reads to me until our allotted time is up.

So… when I read Ben Greenfield said: “People who had four to seven sauna sessions of at least 20 minutes each, had the greatest benefits”, I thought…it would be much more conducive to daily use if we move the sauna inside our home. John came up with the perfect location. BUT… it will require significant effort. He suggested, we could remove the large garden tub from our master bath (since we always opt for the shower, anyway). I love the idea and convenience such a transition will provide.

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.
