I have been following the Great Taste No Pain plan for a couple of months now. I would
like to say a BIG thank you for all the research you have put into this. I have a few medical problems:
I have for years suffered with bloating, constipation etc, but as years passed it got worse, after sometime I stopped eating and lived on milkshakes.
After some tests I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis and told to make a list of what does and does not aggravate it. I was also given some acid tablets to try, can't remember the name as I took the months supply & didn't get anymore as they made no difference.
I was fed up with either having diarrhea or being constipated. It seemed I was constantly 'in labor' day and night. I kept going dizzy, sweating so much it was dripping from my hands and so weak that I couldn't even get my mobile from my pocket to phone for help.
I WAS FED UP. I searched the web and hey ho, I found your Great Taste No Pain website. I decided to send off for the package as anything is worth a try.
Oh my god, what a relief ;-) I could eat ANYTHING without ANY pain or problems. As long as I follow the rules all is working well. I can eat nuts, seeds etc which is what most of us are told not to eat!!! I bake more cakes now as I can eat them without any pain. It is absolute bliss.
Thank you so very, very much. Without your website I would still be suffering this pain. I have told my friends and family and I believe some of them have already sent off for the Great Taste No Pain way of eating. One friend has started it and says it's a god send ;-)
It's a shame the medical professionals do not have this information in the UK. If they had maybe they could pass it on to the dieticians.
Thanks again & keep up the good work ;-)
I will be informing my GP and consultant about the Great Taste No Pain way, (I hope you don't mind that) but they could do with some teaching on this subject instead off popping us with pills for this that and the other.
Oh and I have lost 14lb since starting the GTNP way of eating ;-)
Being on antibiotics I was feeling good, but as soon as I went off of them, I had stomach pains. That's when I went to the Hospital for 8 days and had every test possible and found I had Acute Diverticulitis and Colitis. I was told to eat soft foods and be on Diverticulitis Diet, which really did not tell me what foods I should not eat.
That's when I found your Great Taste No Pain plan and tried. It has really helped.
Sherry!! I will tell everyone, I know about your program!!
Thanks so much for your experience and knowledge on digestion problems. I have not had to take any medication at all and I am out of pain. I had a severe diverticulitis attack.
In fact when I do try to go back to my old ways my body's feed back is intense and pretty compelling. My energy is up and I think the fibromyalgia is dissipating. I had this condition for almost 20 years.
I have not felt this well in a long long time. I
I'm now 72 years old. Until February of this year I did not have any Intestinal problems, but I know now that my eating habits were terrible. The first week of March I had my first bout with diverticulitis and passed 9 days in the hospital-antibiotics and broth- you know the story.
Again, three months later, I started having bad symptoms, constipation, pain, several poor bowel movements a day, lack of appetite, etc. A colonoscopy was made, but the instrument could not pass a smaller passage in the colon caused by inflammation. Ultrasound confirmed the colon inflammation. Trekking to a surgeon specialist in cutting the colon, a date was arranged at the beginning of August, for August 28
A couple of weeks previous to the surgery I started to use your Great Taste No Pain plan and purchased your Super Shield probiotics. Almost immediately, my energy and stamina went up, I was pain free and a few days later my bowel movements went to normal. The inflammation went down. As you can imagine, the surgery was suspended and I hope I will never be in this situation again.
This miracle can be, dear Sherry, assign to you.
Thanks with all my heart.
I'm 75 years old I have suffered for years from diverticulitis, my mother died form it. I have been hospitalized three times because of the pain. Also I have tried to be a vegetarian for years and what other vegetarian eat gave me terrible stomach pain. It struck again the other day and after suffering for several days I went to my doctor. He said well this is not good. I'm sending you over to the hospital to get a cat-scan if the diverticulitis has abscessed I'm checking you into the hospital. Well thank the Lord they had not abscessed. He gave me some antibiotics and sent me home.
In desperation I got on the Internet and began looking for anything that might help. I came across your website. I immediately decided to try your Great Taste No Pain plan. I have been on it for three weeks except for one day. Thought it was too good to be true so I willfully violate the principles and suffered the results, was in pain for four hours.
Iím convinced. Feeling much better now.
Thanks for the information and the Lord's blessing on what you are doing.
I have been using your Great Taste No Pain plan for 1 week now and can tell a tremendous difference. I have diverticulitis, acid reflux, constipation, bloating and misery!!! Or I will say I had these things.
I don't know if the problem has been eliminated for good or not, but I do know the symptoms are greatly diminished. I have more energy, sleeping better, having more regular bowel movements and the pain level is almost gone. Thank you for your Great Taste No Pain plan.
I was diagnosed with acid reflux and a spastic esophagus several years ago after I started to black out and have terrible pains in my chest. The doctor prescribed medication and I have been on 40mg of nexium for several years. I decided to reduce the medication to 20 mg of omeprazole because I didn't think the nexium was good for me. I was still suffering from bloating, gas and discomfort, as well as weight gain when I didn't even eat that much.
I ended up in the ER thinking I was having a heart attack after my heart started going crazy and I felt like I was going to faint. That scared the daylights out of me, but all the tests came back that my heart was fine after 4 days in the hospital. Stress and acid reflux, they said. Two weeks ago today I began having terrible stabbing pains in my lower left side. This kept me up throughout the night and the next day during work I was in such pain that I called my doctor.
I had already self diagnosed with what pointed to diverticulitis after researching my symptoms. The doctor confirmed my diagnosis and put me on flagyl and cipro for 10 days. After two days of taking this horrible medication I went back to see him and begged him to take me off this stuff. I was experiencing terrible side effects. He insisted I stay on it otherwise; I could get c-diff. He frightened me enough to stay on it. I was mentally confused, SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DRIVING, nauseated, a nasty metallic taste in my mouth and listless. So, so sick. I finally refused to take any more of the flagyl after 7 days and it has taken me 5 days to recover from the side effects of this drug.
Which brings me to you. During the time I was going through all this, I begun researching what my diet should be to help me through all this. I found your website and no negative reviews and decided to try your Great Taste No Pain plan. After all, the doctor told me I could eat anything except tomatoes and fruit juice. Everything you said made sense and after reading all the wonderful testimonials, I couldn't wait to get the whole program. You see, this was a MAJOR wake up call for me, a life changing experience. I NEVER, EVER want to go through this again.
I have followed your plan to the letter, and have stopped taking my acid reducing medication and feel much better. I began the Super Shield probiotic about 4 days ago and am enjoying a calm digestive process. I am also losing weight!! I have lost 6 pounds in the last week and am eating better than I ever thought I could!
You are a lifesaver and a blessing sent from God. You are not overpriced considering all the money I have spent on medication, doctor's visits and so forth. I will stay on your plan forever and even have my 16 year old daughter and husband following the plan. They see me happy, looking forward to eating without worrying about pain and they are amazed at how fast the weight is coming off.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
I have been suffering with diverticulitis for years. This year has been particularly bad, with practically no letup from January to July.
I started on your Great Taste No Pain plan out of desperation, and the first day I started feeling better. Now, after a week, I have no symptoms of diverticulitis. Even though I have been eating tomatoes, which used to be a real no-no. I notice a decline in my (ravenous) appetite, so that I am looking forward to shedding excess pounds!

I have been using your program for over two weeks and am feeling better. I can't believe I've lived 77 years without knowing how to combine foods properly. I have Lymphocytic Colitis, diagnosed by my doctor. He prescribed some medication, but it only made it worse so I am not taking it now.
I have diverticulitis and this made it too hard for him to get the scope through the lower bowel for the colonoscopy. He wants me to have a lower GI test to determine if there is any other problem.
In the meantime I have been following your Great Taste No Pain program and feel better and am having fewer BMs. I will probably still have to do the Lower GI test if my bowels don't get back to normal.
Thanks for your great program, I'm telling friends and relatives about it.
I am so happy with the Great Taste No Pain plan results that I have experienced since following the new way of eating outlined in your plan. It happened so fast that even my most skeptical husband is convinced. I have been on the track for 6 days and am having remarkable success.
After being diagnosed recently with diverticulitis I made the decision to try something besides going to a gastro doctor. I found your information on line and for the cost of about 2 visits to the doctor, have found a new way to live my life.
The recipes have been a great help and are so very delicious and easy to prepare.
Thank you so much for being where you are when I needed this information so badly.
