I just want to thank you so much for helping me, I have just been diagnosed with diverticulitis and was in incredible pain, antibiotics cured the inflammation but I had no idea how to stop another one occurring, the only advice I was given was to eat more fiber, which I did but the aftermath of the colonoscopy was not getting any better in fact it seemed to be getting worse.
In desperation I turned to the internet to do some research and thank god I found your website, I tried your Great Taste Plan and right from the first day things became easier, by the end of the 4 days I had lost 1kg in weight and an 1 inch on my waist because I am no longer bloated and when I eat it doesn't feel like I have a rock in my stomach, I burp very little now, I have stopped falling asleep at 9pm and sleep most of the night and I wake up naturally at 6am feeling refreshed.
I thought I was eating quite healthily before but now I can still eat the things I like as long as I am careful what I eat with them it's so simple I feel like a different person, I have so much more energy.
Thank you so much for your hard work and for sharing it with others I will always be grateful.
I just wanted you to know you are magical. Truly magical! I have been combining my food properly for 7 days now, possibly making one or two mistakes here and there, but generally been following the very simple rules and have lost 5lbs!!(in 7 days!!) My bloating has gone and my energy levels are great! I will never eat the way I used to EVER again! I was constantly calorie counting and watching portion sizes which left me tired and hungry. I am now eating things that I have felt guilty about eating in years, this time without feeling guilty and enjoying it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you
I just wanted to drop a note and say thanks again, after diverticulitis in November 08 and your great system - I've lost 75 lbs. from 224# to 149# and holding - more energy and ran my first 5K ever on 3-13-11 at 47 years old.
I began the Great Taste, No Pain program about a month ago. I have had IBS and diverticulosis for many years. Since I began the program, I have lost weight, am sleeping through the night for the first time in years, and can make a fist.
I have osteoarthritis and until now I have had problems making a fist with my hands. In fact, my rheumatologist recently gave me a referral for hand therapy, again. I haven't even gone. I have more energy than I have had in a long time.
I can't thank you enough.
I was diagnosed with an ulcer, reflux and Barrett's esophagus. I am disabled from a chemical exposure in the school in which I was a teacher. So I was wrestling with my ulcer etc. without the ability to have any help from medications. Each meal, before using your Great Taste No Pain plan was followed by upper back pain, stomach pain, reflux and a huge loss of energy. I was feeling trapped and didn't know where to turn for help. My lack of confidence in the MDs was keeping me away from invasive procedures and medications.
My prayers have been answered!!! The very first day on your plan I bounced back with energy, no heartburn, no stomach pain and my spirits returned to hopefulness and gratitude for you and your digestive wisdom.
Everyday is better and I want to stand on a mountaintop and tell the world!!
I found your Great Taste No Pain website from one of your newsletters that had been forwarded to me by a friend. I've had bloating, indigestion, gas, pain, and was often miserable after eating and needed relief. My doctor prescribed Zantac, but after switching to your plan I have not taken the meds or even used my new wedge pillow.
I am very pleased with the results and we have enjoyed your recipes. My energy level has increased, I feel better, and as a bonus, I've even lost some weight.
Thank you so much for sharing with us your research, knowledge, and wisdom about food combining.
I've ordered several more of your Great Taste No Pain plan to share with others.
My name is Emily. I have had severe colitis and Crohn's disease for 3 years. Last year, at the age of 14 I spent 20 straight days in the hospital after being bedridden at home for three weeks. I didn't eat much at all; instead, I would sit at school trying to not black out from pain. I no longer lived a life. I was weak, angry and hopeless. My doc tried every Crohn's treatment possible. They worked for a while, but always failed in the end. When I was admitted for that 20 day stay, I had lost 15 pounds and couldn't walk from steroid swelling.
In the hospital, I was being treated with three different medications through IV. I was so desperate. I frantically searched the internet in hope of some miracle treatment. I didn't find that, but what I did find was you. I was immediately intrigued by your information. After all, for
the past two years I had lived on white rice and popsicles. I couldn't begin your plan in the hospital because the doctor would have had a heart attack. I mean she wanted me to eat red meat and fatty foods for weight gain.
The day I was released I began your Great Taste No Pain program. I had a lot of time on my hands because I wasn't allowed to leave my house for three months due to immune suppression. I used this time to my advantage. When I was released from the hospital, I took 20 pills each day. Slowly, the meds started to decrease, and I only got better. One of the best memories was about a month into your program. I took myself off of acid reflux medication and pain killers. After two weeks I still didn't have any pain or indigestion.
Today, I take one tiny half pill once a day for Crohn's treatment along with many vitamins, minerals, probiotics, and prebiotics. The disadvantage of being 15 is I donít have the ability to say NO to my doctor. Trust me, I will not be on this medication when I do gain the authority. I feel amazing. I have so much energy, I am never in pain after meals, and Ii eat salads.
Thanks to you Sherry, my dream has come true. For three years I didnít eat salads because my doctor told me it would cause a flare. Now I eat 1-2 salads every day. That was only a dream a year ago.
Thank you so much,
Hi Sherry, - thank you for your email and great help.
I have suffered from IBS and Diverticulitis for 20 years and it was getting worse all the time. I was desperate when I came across your web site, your food choices sounded great and easy to do, also because you did not suggest buying special foods or a fortune in vitamins and special supplements I was very impressed.
I found an immediate difference in my bowl, it has not been nearly as painful and I am not bloated like I was, also I do find that I have more energy.
Thank you so very much for this easy to follow and immediate relief plan.
I have been following Pain-Free in 1 Day and just ordered the Great Taste No Pain program. Why? Because for the first time in many years, constipation, bloating and gas from diverticulosis are gone. When I had a colonoscopy 5 years ago, they found diverticulosis and 2 polyps that they removed. When I did research on diverticulosis, I discovered that my digestive problems from which I had been suffering for many years, were in all likelihood due to diverticulosis.
When my friend, Sr. Rose Marie, sent me your email, I said to myself "I hope this works". I tried your Great Taste No Pain program and it did work. My energy level has increased and I feel better than I have in years! I am eating gluten free also. I can go in public now and not worry about gas or outrageously loud bowel sounds.
Thank you so much,
For the last two months I have been dealing with severe (like I'd rather have a baby) pain. One time I was put on antibiotics which helped but as soon as I was done... the pain seemed to be edging back. YIKES... NO WAY!
I looked for help on line for diverticulitis and lo and behold I found your free Great Taste No Pain plan. I followed your instructions and I still enjoyed Thanksgiving type foods and loved how I felt as well. I have more energy, clarity of mind I forgot I could have, no more bloating or pain, regular body functions and I love to drink my water and feel healthy again. I am 56 years old (young) and blessed to have "stumbled" onto your method.
I am now looking forward to a long HEALTHY and pain free life!
