I have been on your plan for 3 weeks and have not had to take a single pill. I had been taking Nexium for 3 yrs and then I started getting more problems and the doctor upped the dosage to 2X40mg a day. I was ok for a few months and then the pain in my stomach came back so I was changed to Zantac. That was ok for a few months then the pain started again. I was so frustrated I went on the internet and found your plan. I was diagnosed with chronic gastritis and then 3 ulcers on my esophagus. I was told if I did not take more tablets I would get stomach cancer.
I have stopped all the pills and I have no pain in my stomach. I still get a little heartburn occasionally but that is because I sometimes do not stick to plan 100%, however, I am working on it and feel sooooooooooooo much better.
Thank you so much!
My story is like others who can't simply enjoy life because they’re trapped in everyday struggle with different types of pain. I am honestly fed up with my condition - I'm not well today-every day. I want to wake up full of energy and enjoy the day without constant thinking how to relieve my big intestine first thing in a morning. I think I'm paying a big price now for my student's life - with no money and no care about my stomach; also I had 3 operations and as a result - adhesion in my intestines, colons which can't be cured and another cause for constant constipation.
So I'm over 40 now and diagnosed with chronic gastritis and colitis, IBS, periodically having ulcers (last one in 2005) and a lot of other things I don't know how to translate from Russian. My symptoms when I have attacks are: constipation (up to 7 days ), bloating, sickness, headache, fever, terrible smell from my mouth, heartburn up to my throat, ache in my stomach under ribs, weakness, low energy, sleepless nights, irritation, vomiting, spots on my face and as a result hospitalization. I'm currently on Mepradec and while on your diet I continue to take medication as really want the best possible effect from both: medicine and diet. I'm on waiting list for scan and then for the appointment to see a specialist.
I'm a fighter in this life - if any problem, I'm not sitting and waiting sulking and moaning; I'm a person of action, trying to find the way out and I knew that all my problems with my health relates to imbalanced food - that's why I tried many ways of dieting including fasts but without big difference. Two weeks ago I was taken to the hospital from work because I was in terrible pain and spent the whole morning in toilet vomiting. At the hospital they made an x-ray and couldn't do better than give me morphine and advise to see my GP doctor for further investigation. So that's why I decided to search through Internet rather then to wait again for the same info and the same way of treatment and finally found your site. I never actually tried combined food before and was very pleased to find a plan of action - Pain Free diet.
With your help and following all instructions for a diet I found myself relieved from heartburn, headache, bloating. I also lost weight and started to sleep well, but the most important thing I feel much better and my stomach is calmer at last. Thank you very much for your care and I hope others will find your diet easy to follow and useful as I did.
I am happy to report that after following your Great Taste No Pain plan, I am feeling a lot better. I have literally suffered for many years with stomach pain (actually pain under my sternum). I have been diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, gastritis and esophogitis and osteoporosis. My acid reflux has subsided thanks to you!!!!
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for giving me the tools to relieve the pain. I will be eternally grateful for all that you have done to show me the way to combine the food that I eat correctly.
With great appreciation for your generous help
I've been following your program for the past 4 days or so. I noticed immediate results in my stomach pain. I'm taking medications for cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes. I want to beat them all! I can't wait to pass on the good news to family and friends.
Thanks so much for sharing your plan!
I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when I was 21. I have been to the gastroenterologists several times. I was given steroids on the last visit to control the inflammation. Last year I had a colonoscopy done and was told that I have Crohn's disease. Then I went on a maintenance program using Asacol daily.
I felt like everything was under control, however, I would end up feeling bloated and uncomfortable towards the end of the day. Recently I had to take a course of antibiotics for a urinary infection which started the rectal bleeding. At this point I felt a strong need to heal myself by eating correctly. I did not want to see another doctor. I found your website and my prayers were answered. I immediately started the new eating plan and found an instant change. I am eternally grateful to you. The relief is amazing - I've e-mailed your website to many of my friends who also experience stomach discomfort.
My family is also eating the way I am, which really helps. The discipline of eating the correct combinations and keeping to regular times is well worth giving up the old habits and spicy foods. Your recipes are easy to follow and the foods are delicious.
I am now 44 and I'm convinced that I am going to enjoy a pain free and drug free life. I really feel more energetic and slimmer in just one week! I see a bright and happy future.
Thank you for the wonderful service you're providing.
God Bless You
I am a 61 year old housewife (used to be a school teacher and an RN and have raised 3 kids). I had polio when I was a kid and it "returned" when I was about 40 years old. And, although a vegetarian, I have had stomach problems all my life. After a hysterectomy at age 46 (life threatening hemorrhaging made me do it!), things got much, much worse! I was diagnosed with diabetes a few years later, but happily, I overcame that through diet and exercise. But the "tummy" problems didn't go away! After a lot of research and with help from our daughter's studying, 3 years ago my husband and I stopped using dairy and eggs. That helped some. But other problems persisted. Having the drugs doctors gave to me (for joint pain and stomach pain) only made matters worse, so I stopped cold turkey a little while ago, and was amazed that I felt even better!
Then, able to think clearly once again, I was searching for something to help my son with his problems when I came across "Great Taste No Pain". I started using your plan myself as a test (with adjustments for my vegan/ wheat-free lifestyle), and now feel so great that I can hardly believe it. It's been two weeks and I feel like a new woman! My husband and the rest of my family have seen the difference, too. Before I was tired and sluggish and in pain from this that or the other thing all the time. I couldn't do a lick of housework and that depressed me. Now I breeze through dishes, beds, floors and even moving some furniture without a care in the world! I walk without a cane (which I've had to use for 7 years!) It isn't just my "tummy" that feels better! It's everything! Thank you!!
I wrote previously about my son who has been diagnosed with Ceilec, Crohn’s, and Ménière’s and has been in pain and suffering for years even with special diets and medication. I "talked" him into trying your plan by being an example! On his 31st birthday just a few days ago he suddenly said, "Mom, when you discover what made you again, let me know and I'll try it!" I didn't understand at first what he was saying, so he explained. "You look terrific! The best I've seen you look since I was a little kid! I want to be well like that!" So, I passed your plan on to him (revamped a little to go with his restrictive diet because of his gluten intolerance and other allergies) and he started on it the very next day. Last night at a family get together he told me, "I can't believe how great I feel. I don't ever want to go "off" this new diet thing! I have almost NO PAIN at all, and it's wonderful!"
Thank you again! It's even more gratifying to me to see him better than it is for ME to feel better! You are indeed an answer to many prayers!

I have waited for 6 weeks now to write to see how I feel using your food program. Well I feel much better than I did when I started. I looked in the internet for solutions to my problems and I found your program. Approximately one year ago I had a terrible problem with gastritis. I went to the emergency room and within a short time my family doctor called in a "specialist" who after several tests told me he needed to open me up to see what the problem was. This scared the du, du out of me. I went to another doctor for a second opinion and did not have an operation.
About 2 months ago I started to have the same symptoms and that is when I found your program. The pain was tremendous. I waited a little while because I was taking medication. Within a very short time I started to feel better combining the correct foods. I am 72 years young and in fairly good condition physically but I have (had) a stomach that I needed to lose some weight. So far I have gone from 172 down to 168. I am very happy because I feel better and have a lot more energy. Thank you so much for providing the information that no doctors seem to know about.
I was recently treated for diverticulitis with antibiotics and on the tenth day I knew I was in further trouble because I had cramping and fever. The doctor said to get to the ER where a CAT scan was performed only to reveal that I had diverticulitis. Well, I knew that! So they kept me in the hospital for four days. The surgeon they called in was preparing me for surgery with no food or water for three days. I am a kindergarten teacher and I was missing the first day of school. I was furious!
After resting my bowel and eating a soft diet, I was allowed to go home but not back to work. Little did I know how much of my energy and stamina would be missing. So I remained in bed, nursing my symptoms and longing to get back to work. This was to be my 24th year of teaching and my last year as I am planning to retire in June! Well, I missed the first 15 days of the school year and was very discouraged.
So, one day I found your website and was very interested in how logically the food combining plan was explained. I shared it with my husband who is a dentist and a lifelong scientist. He was totally absorbed in the information.
On the fourth day of our new eating regime I woke up to my tongue looking and feeling better and my energy level being much more promising. I believe my body was finally in a better state of healing once the four day meal plan was followed. I became very encouraged and have shared this great find with several friends and family.
We are committed to following this logical way of eating and have enjoyed some of the recipes in the cookbook. The carrot soup is awesome, the pan fried fish delightful and the buttermilk pancakes comforting to the taste buds. Thank you for everything. We will continue to promote this healthy way of eating.
Well, my story is only about 2 weeks long. I have been on the Great Taste No Pain plan. Before I started I was having severe bouts of pain and diarrhea almost every day.
The pain and cramping would last several hours. I felt terrible most of the time. In the last 2 weeks I have only had this 3 times. That is truly a miracle. I plan to continue eating right and feeling great.
Thanks to you I am pain free and have lost 18 lbs over the last four weeks.
When I found your website, I was having pain everyday all day and night. No matter what pain pills I took nothing helped.
But now thanks to your Great Taste No Pain, I am a new person!
