What do you do if you’ve got a autoimmune disease and you’ve tried everything and nothing helps? You try everything. You’ve been to GPs, medical doctors, you’ve been to the chiropractor, you’ve been to the herbalist, you’ve been to the witch doctor, you’ve been to Donald Trump, you’ve been everywhere and nothing helps. Nobody can wave a magic wand and make it all disappear. All right? What are you going to do? Well, that’s the thing. You’ve been to people, but what have you done yourself? Are you expecting other people to fix you up? It ain’t going to happen. Okay? You’re the one who’s got to be proactive about your own health, not your partner or your doctor or … There’s nobody going to wave a little magic wand over you and drop some doo-doo dust down on you and all of a sudden everything disappears because some magic pills work. It doesn’t work like that. All right? It doesn’t work like that.
I remember years ago when my dad got into this thing called multi-level marketing, which is not really a good word to use these days. He told me that the guy giving the talk, this is a group of about, I don’t know, a couple of hundred people in this room, a big room full of people and the guy said, “Now, I want everyone to get up off their ass and lift up their chair and turn it around.” And Dad turned the chair around and there was a $1 note taped to the bottom of the chair. All the chairs had a dollar. Right? And the guy said, “You’ve got to get off your butt to make a buck.” So what he was trying to say is, okay, you can’t do business sitting on your butt.
And Dad even had a little, YB, blah blah. He had all these letters here. I said, “What’s that?”
And he said, “You can’t do business sitting on your ass.” So same thing with health. You can’t get recovery sitting on your butt. All right? You’ll never get better expecting other people to get you better. You have to take those steps yourself. You have to be self-determined. Particularly with autoimmune disease, one of the most important factors, in my opinion, is the ability to try and discover what went wrong, what bacteria affected you. Because generally it’s a bacterial problem. Not always, but very commonly in autoimmune disease like Sjogren’s or lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, or there’ll be some type of a bug that’s in there that needs fixing up and it’s up to you to determine, get the tests done, be proactive, get onto people. Nothing happens unless you make it happen and it’s the same with your health. Okay? It’s the same with your health.

So if you’ve tried all the tricks in the book, it means you probably haven’t done one thing and that’s try hard enough to get well. Sitting back and swallowing pharmaceuticals and living a shitty life is not a nice thing when you’ve got autoimmune disease. But I can absolutely, 100% confidently tell you guys out there I’ve known many, many patients with autoimmune disease who’ve fully recovered. Not one, not two, not 10, many more than that, including rheumatoid arthritis, very, very bad pain. I’ve seen a lady fully recover from it. It’s totally achievable. Just like it’s totally achievable for you to become very successful in whatever you want, but it’s got to come from here. It’s not going to come from picking up the phone and calling some doctor. So you have to be a self-determined person. You have to get off your butt to make a buck. All right? And that means trying to understand a bit more about the condition.
Be careful about online and social media because you know you’re going to get all sorts of weird people out there. You know? But going to a physician, a naturopathic doctor or integrative medicine doctor, getting appropriate testing done and having that conviction inside that you want a better life, if you’ve got that conviction and you really believe you can conquer something, you know what? You probably will because you want to do it. And that’s the difference, see, between people not getting well and people getting well. It’s that uncanny ability to stay on track and keep doing something and not giving up until you get what you want. And I’ve seen hundreds of patients like that over the years, but I’ve unfortunately seen many more thousand who fell by the wayside, who were quite content to sit on the couch with a bag of potato chips and some crappy Cola drink, and then swallow a handful of meds and then moan that everything’s bad.
Well, you can’t help people like that, can you? You can only beat them around the head with a pillow and maybe they’ll wake up, but you can’t do much for them. So to all those moaners and whingers out there, you can make a difference but it’s up to you to really want to have that quality lifestyle. No one’s going to do it for you. Wake up call? Maybe it is.
