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!
Thanks so much!
I have been following "Great Taste No Pain plan" for about 15 days and I am impressed. I no longer have pain in my tummy after every meal. Constipation is a thing of the past. I have lost some weight - not that I needed to but I'm happy with being able to wear a size 10 instead of 12. I am sleeping better every night. I have more energy and a more positive outlook on life. Even my itchy scalp seems to be less itchy!!
Thanks for all your help.
To Sherry Brescia,
I began using the wisdom found in the Great Taste No Pain book. I can't believe the difference in the way I feel. The uncomfortable bloated, "gassy" feeling is gone! I have to admit when my friend suggested I buy the book and try to reduce my intake of acid producing products etc.
as well as to take the time to learn how to combine food properly I thought she was crazy! I was at a point of desperation and I knew I did not want to take any more medication for GERD or antacid pills for gas etc. or suffer another day filled with pain and discomfort---so I thought why not give this approach a try. I was more than ready to be rid of all my pain. Thank heaven I took her advice! I plan to pass this information on to others that are suffering as I was. It is so pleasant to be able to enjoy a nutritional meal without worrying about excusing myself to once again use the ladies room. I feel as if I have a new life. I now have the energy I need to begin my exercise programs again ( and I do not have to worry about being embarrassed because of excess gas etc.) No more stomach aches and constant pain.
Thank-you for giving me back a life without pain!
I am a 49 year old woman who too was suffering from gastritis and a hiatal hernia.
I was so miserable I lost my desire to eat, even though I was so hungry.
I had been researching gastritis on the internet and came across your website several times. I finally decided to see what it was all about. Boy am I glad I did. I ordered your Great Taste No Pain plan and cookbook and followed it. I started feeling better by day 2! It's been about 10 days now and I feel like a new person. My energy level has skyrocketed. I used to take naps daily. I haven't had a nap in 10 days. I have shared your website with everyone I know. They can see the difference in me.
Thank you so much for everything you do. From all Iíve read and experimented with I was definitely one of those people who thought it was not possible to eat tasty food and feel good at the same time! I am 60 years old and have been overweight all my life and dealt with constipation my entire life. About 10 years ago became laxative dependent, so depending on my diet and meds, I either had diarrhea or was constipated, and the doctors said I had IBS. After my first colonoscopy I was diagnoses with diverticulitis. I have this painful bulge in my lower right abdomen that doesnít show itís ugly face when I go to the doctorís office, Iíve had a CT scan twice now to be told there is nothing wrong with me, well it hurts really bad for there to be nothing wrong, sometimes when it swells it brings me to tears and I canít move it hurts so much. I find that Alka-Seltzer with help with the pain sometimes Ė my husband thinks we should buy stock in Alka-Seltzer because of how much I used. The gastroenterologist said itís just gas and recommended I take something like beano before you eat anything and you should be fine! My bowel sounds are so loud after I eat anything it was embarrassing to eat in public at all.
Well, I am ecstatic to report that since Iíve been using Great Taste No Pain plan I have lost 10 pounds and my bowel sounds have disappeared and the painful bulge has not shown its ugly face since I started eating the delicious recipes. I quit taking the purple pill, havenít opened an Alka-Seltzer since I started and have the energy to do things for myself instead of asking for help.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING your Great Taste No Pain plan.
I feel like a new person. I am 58 years old and have suffered with Gerd for at least 15 years. I've been on Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Aciphex, Tums, Pepcid, you name them and I have probably taken them. I finally ended up on Prilosec again. It wasn't even working for me and some days I was taking 2 a day.
I started your Great Taste No Pain program and that was the last day I had a Prilosec. I can not believe the difference in how I feel. I have lost 12 pounds, and my reflux is just about totally gone. I have energy that I haven't had in years. And it's so simple. I am telling everyone I know about this fantastic program!
Thanks for the Great Taste No Pain plan. It has changed my life.
