He discusses the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, such as slowed movements, tremors, and regression of knowledge. He also notes that Parkinson's disease is characterized by a progressive deterioration of motor control, which can lead to the development of anxiety and stress.

  • 00:05:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the concept of Parkinson's disease as a movement disorder. They find it interesting that Parkinson's is characterized as a disorder of movement, as it can either stop or increase movement. They mention various factors that can affect movement, such as being alert, being aware, and experiencing fear. The speaker also mentions that famous individuals like Paulo Coelho and Michael J. Fox have been affected by Parkinson's at a young age. They emphasize that while medicine provides symptoms and scientific explanations for the disease, psychoanalysis offers a different perspective. The speaker discusses the importance of muscular tone and dopamine cells in relation to Parkinson's. They explain that individuals with Parkinson's may experience a heightened state of alertness, resembling being in a fight or flight response. The speaker also highlights that people with Parkinson's tend to take risks and want to resolve things quickly. They mention how positioning and posture can be affected, causing tremors and paralysis. The speaker concludes that Parkinson's is not only about movement but also about finding balance and maintaining equilibrium.
  • 00:10:00 In this section of the video "La Enfermedad de Parkinson desde el Psicoanálisis", the speaker discusses the concept of Rebeldía which is the resistance of the Parkinson's patient's body to control and the manifestation of this resistance by slow movement, inexpressive face, and stiffness. The speaker also discusses how Parkinson's patients try to stop time or delay the consequences of aging by trying to detain the inevitable. The speaker mentions famous Parkinson's patients like Michael J. Fox, Mohamed Ali, and Pope John Paul II who also tried to stop time, to delay the consequences of aging or to fulfill their goals. The speaker also talks about how the Parkinson's disease starts in the mid-life and the decline of capacities and motor functions. The speaker suggests that the Parkinson's disease is the manifestation of the struggle between the unconscious and conscious mind, the acceptance of the impotence, and the resistance to this impotence.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, the speaker discusses how individuals with Parkinson's disease may struggle with accepting castration in general. They may have a young spirit, but their bodies no longer support their desires and conscious will. This creates a constant contradiction and tension between the conscious and unconscious mind, leading to an intense drive that manifests in the body as the disease. The speaker mentions that people prone to Parkinson's tend to have impulsive and controlling personalities, striving for perfection and success while fearing failure. They provide an example of someone trying to move a cup of coffee without spilling it, representing the conflict between the conscious desire to control and the unconscious desire to spill and destroy. The speaker also notes that Parkinson's disease can allow for a regression and improved relationships with family, as individuals return to a more nurturing environment. They suggest that the physical symptoms, such as postural changes, may symbolize the decline and the need to let go. Overall, the unconscious desires, difficulties with control, and fear of aging and deterioration play a significant role in the development and manifestation of Parkinson's disease from a psychoanalytic perspective.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the concept of "parking son", explaining that it refers to how the libido or impulse can become fixated in a muscle, resulting in symptoms like tremors. They also mention the importance of muscle tone in performing actions and how Parkinson's disease can affect it. The speaker highlights the idea that individuals with Parkinson's may experience a regression, where they retreat to their home and become more attached to their family. They emphasize the significant difference between success and failure for those with Parkinson's, focusing on the recognition and applause they receive rather than the actual actions they have accomplished. The speaker suggests that individuals with Parkinson's might feel a sense of being paused, like a television image that freezes, indicating their inability to advance. They also mention an actor who retired due to Parkinson's as a way to withdraw without feeling like a failure. The possibility of slowing down the progression of Parkinson's with medication and medical procedures is discussed, including the use of micro-receptors and a neural chip. The speaker brings up the potential role of therapy in preventing or slowing down the symptoms of Parkinson's.
  • 00:25:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the potential alternative methods to help individuals with Parkinson's disease, such as occupational therapy and increasing body awareness. They also touch on the fear of aging and death that individuals with Parkinson's may experience. The speaker suggests that this fear leads to a series of other fears, including the fear of failure and the fear of being forgotten. They highlight how individuals with Parkinson's may seek to immortalize themselves by living life on the edge and dying young with success. The speaker also mentions the physical symptoms of Parkinson's, such as a rigid face and oily skin, which may contribute to the idea of turning their bodies into their own statues.
  • 00:30:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the case of a man with Parkinson's disease who seeks to reconcile with his children and find solace in his family after a life of independence and multiple partners. The speaker suggests that there is a fear of death associated with the progression of the disease, causing the individual to return to the safety of his family. They also mention how individuals who are meticulous and control everything in their lives may experience a regression when they fall ill, seeking the support of their family. In this specific case, the man returns to his mother, who provides him with care and acceptance, without demanding anything from him. This return to the mother is seen as a return to a safe and secure relationship, where the individual can find comfort and forgiveness. The speaker also briefly discusses another case of a man who experiences economic difficulties and feelings of incapacity, which leads to a search for success in the business world.
  • 00:35:00 In this section, the speaker discusses a patient with Parkinson's disease who is reluctant to take risks, as it may be his last investment. The patient's lack of nerve for business is mentioned in connection with neurology. The patient's rigidity and inability to withstand heat are compared to his lack of firmness with his wife, symbolizing his fear of risking his money. The patient also has a desire to stop time and realizes that this may be his last chance to excel, as he has always waited for success to come in one attempt. The speaker also mentions envy towards his successful brother who took the traditional path of studying and becoming a renowned teacher, while the patient wants instant success. The speaker concludes by discussing the concept of success and personal fulfillment, using the example of Pope John Paul II, who left a lasting impact and broke paradigms, highlighting the subjectivity of success and the personal demands individuals place on themselves. The speaker then raises questions about the patient's need for success and retirement.
  • 00:40:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the unconscious part of oneself and how it relates to the difficulty of letting go of certain activities or desires, even when one physically can no longer participate in them. They use the example of a soldier waiting hours for battle to start, only to experience trembling and weakness in the legs and body due to the anticipation and emotional strain. The speaker also mentions that athletes who push themselves too hard and refuse to quit even when injured are clinging to the hope of success and transcendence. They suggest that this clinging and refusal to let go can manifest in physical symptoms like trembling and vibration, similar to the way one's body reacts to extreme emotions or danger. This section highlights the need to question our fears and desires, and to find enjoyment in the process of our actions rather than solely focusing on the ultimate outcome of success or failure.
  • 00:45:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the success of individuals and how their self-perception can impact whether they achieve success or not. They also mention the importance of receiving positive feedback from others, and how it can contribute to greater self-esteem and motivation. Additionally, the speaker invites the audience to participate in a course on psychology and medicine, specifically, "El Cuerpo y su Lenguaje Psicoanálisis Medicina Psicosomática," which will begin on April 13th at 3 pm at the AMJ facilities.
