I wanted to give you a quick update. I have been in pain for many years that was getting worse and worse... November and December I had excruciating pains in my abdomen. I had endometriosis and they did a full hysterectomy. 2 weeks after my surgery my OBGYN sent me to a Gastroentologist. He put me under and did and upper and lower. Come to find out... I also had GERD, Diverticulitis, IBS, and polyps. I was told no Citrus, tomatoes, garlic, black pepper, strawberries, and to take daily pills to cut the Acid in my stomach. Weeks later I still had the heartburn, gas, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, bloating, bleeding, etc... I was following doctorís orders and still hurting. A friend told me about your website and I thought... anything is worth a try. I tried your program and I have been pain Free. I forgot how nice it feels to be Pain Free, Bloat Free, Gas Free, Burp Free, Heartburn Free, etc. day after day.
Thank you, Sherry. You are an answered prayer. I have shared your website with many. Thank you again!
Thank you for your guidance. After years of digestive problems, I had a second acute bout of diverticulitis about 10 days ago and a week ago decided to look on the website with a view to changing my diet. The rest is history. I have now received your program. I have quit using medication and am feeling fantastic. My son of 31 also has bowel problems for which he has been hospitalized on several occasions. I am working on him to start your diet. I also have 2 of my 10 grandchildren with bowel problems, so know the importance of your words.
Warm regards and thank you,
While my diverticulosis symptoms have significantly reduced through following your diet advise, I am even more excited about how great I am feeling, have heaps more energy, and have lost 5kg - now down to my 'fighting weight'. All this in fewer than 10 days this is fantastic.
I would like to thank you for helping free me from bloating, pain and most of all taking away all those medications; Prilosec, Tums - I also have prescriptions from my doctor that I forgot and a lot more medication, but it did not really help me at all.
I am a person so conscious of what I am eating, but the only problem is I don't know that if you combine certain foods with another then it will give you acid or produces gas. The first day on the program you gave me I noticed immediately the changes. But the sad thing, on 4th day I tried another food, then it gave me a little discomfort, but not that bad compared to before.
I'm still burping once in awhile, but I'm not bloating or any pain in my tummy. The other good thing I'm shedding off a little poundage from my 107lbs. weight. I lost 3lbs for just few days of doing the program. The best part is I don't feel hungry all the time, so I don't need to munch every hour on the hour.
Thank you so much and I'm free from taking those pills that I really hate.
Thank you again.
I wanted to tell you about my step-dad. He's been going to doctors for 3 plus years and specialists and to no avail. He's even ended up in the hospital a few times because of heart arrhythmia (possibly a side effect?). The doctors had put him on Nexium, Asiphex, and Prilosec and they do help for about 2 weeks, but then he had always gone back right where he was. He had migraines and major stomach problems. He's had test after test at specialists, but they come up with nothing except that he may have a damaged esophagus.
One afternoon we were sitting in my living room, and we were talking about how it must just be diet and I jumped up to Google in acid reflux diet. I came upon your website and got your program. The next day quit taking his acid reducer pills and has watched what he's eaten and has been so much better ever since. He has been plagued so long he just can't believe that it will last, but now its' going on 1 month and he's so excited. I thank you for your website and that I found it that day. He tells people that his stepdaughter is his doctor now! Thanks from the bottom of my heart (and his!) I have acid reflux problems too, and have been helped by your material.
Thank you so much for your passion and for helping all of us!
Many thanks for your diet and recipes. I do not have much time to cook but I am doing what I can and noting the fruits and vegetable dishes you recommended. All is going well for me and I am feeling much better already. I will lose a little weight too with time.
With many thanks
Dear Ms. Brescia,
I had severe abdominal pain in the lower left quadrant of my abdomen, but I only had it one time. I did go to the doctor the evening of the episode and he told me that I had diverticulitis, a kidney stone, or urinary tract infection. The next day I was sent to the hospital and had a CT with and without contrast and with crystals. Three CTs. I was there for almost 4 hours, as I had to drink the special "lemonade" at the rate of a cup per 15 minutes and that took 2 hours alone. When it was all said and done, and after I got back home, later that evening my doctor's office called to tell me that the decision was that I had diverticulitis.
I went on the net right away to check out what all this would mean. I was told by my doctor to take my pills for the 7 days and then just go on with my life. I had listened to others talk about these types of maladies, and I thought I remembered food restraints being part of the regimen. They game me none.
I went to your web site and I sent for the GTNP info. I have had no further episodes. I have eaten lima beans, quesadillas that were spicy, tomatoes and things like that, just to see if this thing is working. As far as I can tell, it is. I did lose a few pounds - that was wonderful.
Also, I did recommend your site to a woman that I know who has severe diverticulitis. She said that she has also ordered the program.
Thank you for the web site.
Thank you Sherry,
I have just been 2 weeks into your plan and am fairly new to stomach problems. I am sleeping again through the night and feel so much better during the day. My pain is gone and I am passing the word along to anyone who will listen.
I have found your "Great Taste No Pain plan" most helpful in treating hiatal hernia. Pain was gone in just a few days. I have been treated by several doctors with no results until my wife found your plan on the Internet.
Even though it's been a short period of time I just wanted to say that stumbling on to this web site has been eye opening for me. I have to say that within the second day I did feel different. I tried to follow as closely as possible to the outlined menu and for the most part at this time I really do feel much better... that ballooning is less and my clothes already fit and feel much better on. I feel if I stick to this definite change of eating and lifestyle change, life will and can be more enjoyable and Iíll have restored confidence.
I forgot to add that 5yrs ago I was diagnosed with IBS and was given different medication that ended up being pulled off the market which caused other complications and left me looking for other ways and things to take for gastric problems. Of course they did not work, so for the past 4 yrs I've looked like I was pregnant but... in the past 7 to 8 days I'm no longer resting my arms across my tummy like you would when you are pregnant....that makes me feel good inside and out...I know this condition did not happen over night and it won't go away that fast but this is starting to be a turn around for me...I'll try to keep you updated....
