Cobus Visser – A South Africa FireWalker, Speaker and Coach
Cobus was born in South Africa 1982 to a middle class family dad was a policeman. He was diagnosed at a young age with Hemophilia (blood does not clot). At school he was teased a lot and was not allowed to do much because of his predicament. This is his true story; It is about how he turned, in a single day, from depression, stress, anger, pills, addictions, to freedom, relaxation, energy, vibrancy, a purpose and excellence.
Now, five years later, he is living his dream and bringing hope to thousands of people.
“My journey to a new life started at the end of 2011. I’ve had hemophilia (an genetic condition in which the blood has difficulty in clotting) since birth and as the years went by, my condition got to a point where I was in a really bad emotional state. I went from depression, to stress, to drinking a handful of pain pills each day. I was taking up to 10 pain and other pills each day. It was as if suddenly I couldn’t cope with pain.” Says Cobus Visser.
“And, as if that wasn’t enough, I needed to get elbow replacements (I had had an arm brace for six months and me doctor said I couldn’t pick up anything heavier than 2kg), and both ankles needed to get fused. For me that have a son this was devastating not being able to pick him up. That wasn’t even the end of my medical Challenges: I was also on hepatitis C treatment that made me sick (some of the symptoms are like chemotherapy). As a hemophilia I used some 20-40, each of 1 000 units of a blood clotting factor each month.”
Without such treatments a simple cut or bruise could be extremely painful and even life threatening.
With all this hanging over me, I came to a defining moment at a seminar, and I told myself something has to change. I thought: ‘I’m dying!’ This is where I discovered how powerful we as human beings truly are and how uniquely we are made. It was then that I had my first experience fire-walking…
