I have been on your plan for a couple of weeks. I am much better than I was before plus losing some weight. I have IBS and diverticulitis for years.
I use to drink one tablespoon of Braggs apple cider vinegar in a cup of water every morning but not any more. Also, my reflux has gotten much better and I am not taking the Prevacid anymore. My IBS has also gotten much better. I am not so nervous about leaving the house as I was before. My going to the bathroom has scaled down to about twice a day and in my case that's wonderful.
Thank you again,
I'm Gavin a 44yr. Old male from New Orleans, I'm new to diverticulitis (1.5 Years) but the pain was horrible, I thought I was having "The Big One" (Heart Attack). Regrettably, I took the Medicine, but once I finish, the pain was back. I took your advice and followed the Great Taste No Pain plan and took back control of my life.
My name is Teresa and I'd like to tell you that thanks to the Great Taste No Pain way of eating I'm feeling much better.
I'm 54 years old and have been bothered by IBS symptoms for years and more recently by Diverticulitis. I thought I had figured out how to eat and keep away those terrible attacks. I was wrong. Just a little over a week ago I was horrified to realize that another attack was coming on. What in the world had I eaten to cause it? I went on the Internet searching for new ways to help and came across your plan. And I tried it. Guess what!! In three days I was feeling better and in four the pain was gone.
Every day I'm feeling better and I'm sticking to it 100%. I never want to feel like that again and I'm so happy that now I know I'm not going to.
Thank you, Sherry!
I am most grateful to you for helping me to vastly improve my health and am happy to share my success story.
I have known that I have diverticulosis for some years now and have experienced occasional bouts of diarrhea out of the blue and the usual bloating and gas but it was not until late October 2008 that I experienced my first diverticulitis attack; it came all of a sudden at work, severe pain and diarrhea; I saw my doctor and was given antibiotics and a couple of days off work. The next attack which was more severe and another longer course of antibiotics and a week off work.
This time the inflammation caused the tissues in the colon to bleed. I also suffer from acid reflux (have to sleep almost sitting up and be careful what I eat) and I have tried all sorts of remedies to enable me to not have to take Nexium but to no avail. Because of having to take a strong course of antibiotics for the diverticulitis attack I stopped taking the Nexium. I wasn't eating very much anyway just drinking fluids.
I couldn't go to work I decided to research my health issues on the internet (in between visits to the toilet) and came across your website, what a godsend! I started your sensible Great Taste No Pain plan and what a difference, no more gas, bloating, acid reflux, diarrhea and pain and no more sleeping on double pillows and I have lost a few kilos (which I needed) as well and feel absolutely fabulous.
By the way, I haven't taken Nexium now for 17 days, how good is that! There is another interesting aspect to this lifestyle change; I had (notice I said had) borderline high blood pressure. In my research I discovered that digestive disorders can contribute to elevated blood pressure and also that one of the side effects of Nexium is elevated blood pressure.
Again, thank you, thank you!
My Very Best Wishes,
Your Great Taste No Pain program works wonders. I used to have severe pain with my diverticulitis, but now it is gone. I eat what I love without the pain. It's wonderful.
Thanks for everything.
This is day 5 of being on your Great Taste No Pain plan plan. Gone are all of the symptoms I use to put up with - Bloating, cramps, swinging from diarrhea to constipation, tiredness and pain.
I was recently diagnosed with Diverticulitis and was told by the "experts" that I would have to stay away from certain foods and if symptoms got worse I would need to go on medication and if that did not work, surgery!
This did not make me smile and so the depression settled in, you see I love to entertain and food is a big part of my social life.
By chance I found your site and decided I would give your Great Taste No Pain plan a go. Guess what - No more symptoms!!!
I will be looking forward to starting this way of eating for life it is so easy and the food is scrummy and not bland. Bonus is I have lost 3kg without even trying, excellent stuff! Also my husband says I am a lot happier these days, of course I am, I'm not in pain any more
Thank you for all your work and research into this way of eating, I am putting it out to the Universe that the medical professionals click on to this way of helping people soon and that the pharmaceutical companies disappear due to lack of demand for their products.
You Rock, thanks once again.
For quite awhile now I have been living with a lot of pain, gas, bloating and feeling really down right miserable. Finally I told my husband I had to do something about all this pain and discomfort.I called my doctor and he suggested we do a colonoscopy to see whatís going on. Well, he found one polyp and took that out. He said I have diverticulitis and not to eat corn, popcorn, chips, nuts or any kind of seeds. But I don't eat any of that now so I knew that couldn't be the problem. So I went on line looking for help and came across your site. I ordered your program and WOW what a difference a personís diet makes. I am pain free now and feel great. And I have lost a few lbs already. I went back to my doctor yesterday for a follow-up and told him what I was doing and about your site. He was really happy for me and now I can stop taking all the drugs for acid reflux that I was on. Thank You for being there to help so many people. I have a couple of friends that have problems too and have told them all about you, so they will be checking your site out also. Thanks again.
I never believed I could do anything regimental as far as eating went. The last seven days have been great and I feel so much better (no pain, more energy and lost 8 lbs).
I suffered from diverticulitis and then just recently had a colonoscopy that showed microscopic colitis. My doctor called to tell me of these findings and said he'd call in a script. I told him about finding you online and said I'd like to try the "change of eating" way first before taking more medication... He was supportive and said he'd always recommend diet changes instead of medication....
Anyway, I feel I'm on my way. Your recipes are wonderful! Thank you.
My husband isn't going all the way with me on this combination eating, but he's certainly reaping the rewards with all the fresh veggies, etc! People are getting sick of hearing my talk about Great Taste No Pain also, but I am so grateful for all I've learned.
Feeling so much better in Rhode Island!
I just thought I'd tell you that your food Great Taste No Pain plan is brilliant and that it does allow you to party hearty on the odd occasion. I did a lot of partying recently, but followed your advice combining. I felt great.
Keep up the good work and a happy New Year to you and all your crew.
Love and light
I want to thank you for "Great Taste no Pain". I have suffered with bouts of diverticulitis for the past four years. The docs simply gave me killer antibiotics and said "keep things moving and when it gets really bad we'll do surgery." The hell we will I thought, and then I found you! I am soooo excited to report, after two weeks of food combining with your delicious recipes that I am pain free and things are moving very well!
I also need to add that my husband is enjoying this new way of eating and has lost four pounds with more to come!!!! So my hats off to you!! I wish more of the medical profession would treat the whole person instead of just the symptom! Again I thank you and my digestive system thanks you.
