I had my gall bladder removed 6 years ago and after the surgery I found quite often my stomach was bloated and full of gas, which has been very embarrassing. It helped when I took a pill from the health shop called Acidophilus, but did not get rid of it.
Over the last 6 months I found this has got worse and just before my last holiday in September I had diarrhea a lot of the time. On holiday I had to go to a doctor who treated me. I spent a lot of the time on the toilette and my holiday was spoiled, the confusing thing was I couldn’t pin point what was bringing this on, some days I would be ok, then without warning it would start again, also about this time the pain started to get worse.
When I arrived home from Holiday I had a couple of bad attacks, cramps shivering and high temperature, while waiting to see my GP. I went on the internet and found your website, I thought at first it was a con. A trick to get people to buy your Great Taste No Pain plan, but I was desperate and I kept returning to your website and re-reading what you had written. Anyway I sent for your plan and kept my appointment with my GP. I had been diagnosed with diverticulitis years ago, but because I had not had an attack before he was very reluctant to give me antibiotics. Eventually he did though and to my relief the symptoms vanished, so at least I knew what I was dealing with, but when the course finished some of the symptoms returned, diarrhea and pain.
When your plan arrived I started it and to my amazement it worked immediately. As well as feeling so much better, more energy and no pain I have lost 12 pounds in weight so I also look better.
A few of my friend have noticed my weight loss and how good I look and after I tell them about you ,some of them surprisingly tell me about there problems which have been very much like my own and they are now investigating your web site for themselves.
So thank you Sherry for the relief that I have had for the last 2 months, long may I continue to follow your suggestions.
I started your Great Taste No Pain plan almost 2 weeks ago and have been telling everyone at work about it. I cannot believe how many people are suffering with digestive issues. It's crazy. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis and my colon was perforated. I had no choice by to have the surgery. It was an excruciating experience.
Since starting your plan I feel fantastic. I was taking Prilosec everyday and still having acid indigestion. I no longer even need to take it. I have lost weight, have tons of energy, and I used to get headaches daily and have not had one since starting the diet. This has saved my life.
I will not stop until I can get my loved ones to listen to me about your diet.
I've been following your Great Taste No Pain plan for three months now. I tell everyone about it. It's awesome to live without the pain from every time you eat. But, last night at dinner the family had an interesting conversation about another family in-law member that was going through the same horrible pain I was going through. The medications they were taking and the lack of ability to change. There were 13 of us gathered around and I know we've had this discussion before but everyone was amazed at my answer to this question: "What medications do you take?" "NONE" I replied. I am still taking my Nexium to make sure that my esophagus is healing, as the doctor ordered, but NO, I do not take the medications that many are taking because of their diverticulitis.
THANK YOU SHERRY!
I found your website while in the middle of a diverticulitis attack and taking two antibiotics, Flagyl and Cipro. They made me feel nauseous and not wanting to eat.
I finally got the Doctor to take me off the antibiotics and began following your Great Taste No Pain simple rules. I read the information provided in your plan and gained an awareness of foods to bring my system more into balance. Without a feelings of deprivation or sacrifice I immediately began feeling better. I am back to normal activity and feel stronger than before the attack.
I am grateful for your help.
Thank you for your Great Taste No Pain and your Super Shield Probiotic Formula. I've dealt with stomach pains and diverticulitis for the last 25 years and I'm pleased to report that after being on your program for only two weeks the pain is gone plus I've lost 6 pounds.
After suffering with diverticulitis attacks for over twenty years I am happy to say after 9 weeks on your Great Taste No Pain plan I have not had one pain. I feel great and I have dropped 10 pounds. I have gained food back that I love - I just eat differently!
Your cookbook is great - I go to my Doctors on Wednesday and I know the report will be great
I recently purchased your Great Taste No Pain plan for my husband who has been hospitalized three times within the past year for diverticulitis. Although skeptical about the plan, it has worked! He may soon be able to also get rid of the Prilosec which he has been taking for ten plus years for Gerd.
I have suffered with mild stomach pain for almost 12 years. For about the last 2 years, I started having attacks. First the severe, lower stomach pain (felt like labor contractions or severe stomach flu cramps) were coming every few months, then they started coming a couple of times per month. About one year ago, I went to the doctor and he ordered an
ultrasound. They said I have fatty liver. Last month I went back to the doctor and was told I have diverticulitis.
I was desperate, so I started doing my own research online about diverticulitis. I ordered your Great Taste No Pain plan and started on it. I feel amazing. No more pain and no more worries.
My compliments and gratitude go out to you. I wrote to you at a time when I was ready to change my life habits. Since I discovered your Great Taste No Pain plan my body was going thru several life threatening diseases. First was a very severe bacteria infection that was caused by both chronic constipation, diverticulosis which became diverticulitis and impacted bowel. I was put on double antibiotics. One of the antibiotics Biaxin burned and dumped more acid in my stomach causing abdominal pain that would not go away.
Finally after two weeks of pain, I wound up in the Er. I found your plan the day after. It has now been two weeks and I am totally pain free.
I am off all the antibiotics. I take fiber-con and follow your plan. Your way of eating is a blessing to me. I look forward to preparing your recipes everyday. I noticed that I now take my time and chew my food thoroughly. I feel full and very satisfied while I choose to eat healthier foods. I love food combining. I feel in control and in the driver's seat to a full recovery. Someday I now know it is possible to achieve perfect health. This plan has made me a happier person knowing that we have options. We do not need to stay sick once we discover the true essence of life. Listen to people like you Sherry who reach out and share their experience with you. Sherry you have given everyone the true gift of life which will lead us all to perfect health and happiness.
For this I am grateful.
A couple of years ago following a routine colonoscopy, I was told I had diverticular, and was asked if I experienced any pain. At the time I didn't and didn't think anything more about it until March this year, when suddenly after eating some meals I would experience pain of varying degrees, some quite excruciating.
And I realized here was the diverticulitis. After surfing the internet for several days I found your website, grateful thanks. And your email messages made me realize I had been experiencing symptoms of diverticulitis for several years, gas and quite regular diarrhea, however when the Dr spoke to me he only mentioned the pain, and advised the foods I should avoid, which are the foods I now enjoy, nuts, seeds, tomatoes, etc.
The pain was what spurred me on to surf the net, because I have always had an aversion to prescription medication, because I realized they were not always effective and had varying side affects. The information in your emails made so much sense; I ordered your Great Taste No Pain plan. The recipes I thought were great. I started on the plan and was relieved of the pain, plus the diarrhea and gas although not gone completely initially was reduced markedly.
I also had moderate to high blood pressure and borderline cholesterol which my Dr has been recommending I go on medication. My blood pressure is now normal as is my cholesterol, and I have lost around 8kg in weight. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank I am so grateful for my new lease on life.
