essential tremor

Postby DGA » Thu Aug 23, 2012 8:34 pm

Essential tremor seems to run in my family. I have some symptoms sometimes; these are mitigated by avoiding excesses of coffee and staying present in the moment. I still get the shakes though.

what are the causes of this condition in TM? general advice?
I don't know anything about Hongaku Jodo.

Good luck.

My father had this condition. It was made worse when feeling stressed, when it became 'anticipatory tremor' , for example when asked to sign a cheque.

Alcohol worked- small amount. I'm guessing that TB has a herbal equivalent maybe - hope so. :)

Without seeing you in person, it is hard to say.

So called “sentient beings” are merely delusions self-appearing from the dhātu of luminosity.

I have the same problem, but the body parts are different each time. Sometimes it could be the knees or thighs, other times it could be the arm. But most of it, I guess, is related to stress.
