I am starting to read through 'Listen to Your
Gut' (and not just reference separate topics). I come across
instructions that 'You must heal all the roots of your illness...to
effect long-term healing' (p.19) where I have been trying to 'just
randomly take a few of the recommended supplements here and there'
(p.14). I thank you for your Absorb Plus Video Part 2 on Traveling. Next
month I am going to have to do exactly that. I live in the South, and my
mother is in long term care in Michigan.
It reminds me of the time, in 2012, when I visited her to take
responsibility for her surgery for intestinal cancer, even as the stress
of the situation gave me diverticulitis, and the prescribed antibiotics
gave me diarrhea. I stopped taking the drug, and took probiotic gummies
instead, in order to do what I had to do, for her. My mother was 83 at
the time, and I praise God that the surgery was completely successful,
but she still has IBS, and so do I.
I was enlightened by the idea that 'you don't even need an official
medical diagnosis to use and benefit from the healing tools in the
program.' (p.29) I have been holding my breath, waiting for a
colonoscopy on Aug. 11th. Will they say I have cancer? Will they say
'You're fine.'? I'm not likely to follow their recommendations either
way! You are absolutely right - I can be proactive, start working the
workbook, and looking at how to be Healthy, without any doctor's formal
explanation. OK I'm following the general recommendation to see a
doctor. But I can change how I see myself.
Thank you for writing this book, articulating some thoughts I have
been vaguely turning over in my head for years!
