Who Is John Coleman?
“I was a 52 year old Naturopathy Student, diagnosed with advanced Parkinson’s Disease and early to Multi System Atrophy, but am FREE now from ALL symptoms, — no drugs, no expensive medicines!”
Since you’re here, you’ve probably heard my story about how I recovered from stage IV Parkinson’s Disease and early stage multi-system atrophy, and am now completely symptom free! Five months after I collapsed in August 1995, I got the devastating prognosis. Doctors predicted that, as my condition progressed, I would eventually end up as helpless as a baby needing full-time care.
Remember, I had stage IV Parkinson’s disease on the Hoehn and Yahr scale (127/199 on the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale – UPDRS); my next step was full time care! But there was no way I was going to accept that.
