Steve Job passed away today and in 2005 he left us with some encouraging words during a Stanford commencement speech.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
Obviously, Steve Jobs’ disease was life threatening, I don’t know the details and my comments below are not towards his situation.
In the world of digestive conditions, if you are looking for options outside of conventional treatment approaches, I believe what he says is key if you want to overcome and lead a high quality of life.
Listen to what your gut is telling you. Don’t let anyone define your prognosis, that is ultimately left up to you. If everyone is telling you that your disease is incurable and yet you feel differently, you go out there and prove them wrong.
During an interview with Tara Rosas, she spoke about her thought process early on after her diagnosis,
“I wasn’t born with Crohn’s disease. I got this way somehow. There has got to be a way to reverse this.”
And reverse it she did, using a variety of treatments and attributes the most of her healing to raw milk Kefir prescribed by the Gut and Psychology Syndrome healing program.
Her success is just one out of thousands all over the world. You can join them if you haven’t already.
