I'm not surprised! I was taken off of Lipitor last December due to muscle weakness and constant spasms. My doctor recognized the symptoms immediately, and told me to stop taking it. Incidentally, he was the very same doctor who prescribed it in the first place. He also told me I had an A1C of 5.6. Strange! Never, ever, did I have issues with blood sugar. He suggested Metaformin and I told him an unequivocal "NO." I simply changed my eating habits and I have reduced my carbohydrate intake, specifically white flour products, and now feel amazingly good. I dropped 10 pounds within a matter of weeks.
My gut instinct told me that there was a reason the body produces more cholesterol as you age. My eye doctor, who is holistic, recently told me that it serves as a protective mechanism for the brain and the nervous system, and that an A1C of 5.6 was no justification to take medication. It now all seems very sensible to me. My nerves were a wreck while I was on the statins. Now that I'm off, I feel like a million bucks, and at age 64, have energy to burn.
I have also refused to take Nexium for periodic reflux. With your recommended diet modifications, I rarely have episodes. I am beginning to think that big Pharma is a conspiracy to keep the masses just sick enough so they keep using drugs. And with every drug, there are 10 side effects! Every time I look, the AMA is lowering the ranges for high blood pressure and high cholesterol, just so it can sell more drugs. Not to mention all the drug ads on TV. It's very disconcerting, and very scary.
To be for-warned is to be for-armed. Thank you for sharing this! I applaud you and your efforts to educate the public to the fact that acid reflux is NOT a disease but a condition that can be reversed. It can be done because I have done it! And I take every opportunity I can to introduce my friends to your proven discipline and wisdom. So go ahead, Sherry, take a bow! You deserve it!
Sincerely yours and in good health,
I am so excited about Great Taste No Pain that I have been telling family and friends almost daily what this has done for me.
After serious cramps, gas, bloating, acid reflux, heartburn so bad I thought I was having a heart attack, and more, I am almost entirely pain free. I have the complete Great Taste No Pain program and your recipe book and am learning what goes with what when I eat and exploring your recipes is fun.
After the initial 4-day trial program I was feeling well enough to stop the antacids and probiotics and am working toward healthy cholesterol levels, hoping to eliminate or reduce my medication for this problem. I also dropped 4 pounds in that 4-day trial and am still losing weight slowly.
I have found the lifestyle change that my husband and I can live by for the rest of our lives and live longer, healthier, happier and pain free.
Thank you so much,
I would like to say that when I started Great taste no pain I was unsure if it would work.
I am now on the fourth day, no pain and feeling well. I no longer need Nexium and feel as though my life has been turned around for the good.
I now have more energy and feel very positive.
I want you to know that my Fibromyalgia symptoms have vanished and I no longer take the
prescription amitriptyline! Have you ever read those side effects?
I've had your books for over a year and love your recipes! I still take all your supplements, too. At 75, I felt I needed them to get started on my new healthy plan from you. I really love your Recovery Soup, especially after I ate wrong foods at two big Holiday parties this year. I always have it ready in case I eat the wrong way away from home.
You have saved my body from eating the wrong way! My mind is at ease, finally!
Hurray for Sherry!
Happy New Year, dear friend,
I'm extremely grateful for the eating practices I've learned from your book Great Taste No Pain plan. I was having constant reflux pain and burning.
The ENT told me there was even evidence of the acidic burning of reflux as far up as my throat. I had tried not eating two hours before bedtime and bought a wedge pillow to elevate my head. I was on daily omeprazole but it wasn't helping. My insurance company would not okay stronger medicine.
Frustrated and discouraged, I was saved after talking to a friend who had been cured of reflux by visiting your website and purchasing your books. I began the eating plan and quickly didn't need medication for my reflux anymore! I also feel calmer and happier in general. What a difference your program has made in my life---and best of all, it's natural and doesn't include costly medication. That's been my wonderful experience with Great Taste No Pain.
Thank you so much for the Great Taste No Pain program. It does really work. I have been using it and I feel so much better. I eat out with my family and I never knew it was so easy. I wish I had found this program years ago is the only negative thing I have to say.
I have had IBS since 1997 and the pain and misery was terrible, keeping me from daily enjoyment of my life. I have had GERD's for 10 years taking all the worst medications. My sister was diagnosed with Diverticulitis last month and I was desperate to find help for both of us.
I really found a winner when I found your site. I canít believe that for so little I found so much. I am doing so much better. Have had one episode of IBS, my own fault for cheating. That just proved to me your plan works. No more expensive prescriptions and the only side effect, I lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks, great side effect.
Thank you so much I am spreading the word. You made it affordable and easy. Anyone can follow this plan. All positive things about this plan.
Thank you again for your hard work and research. It has been a blessing to me and my sister.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work....I have been on the GTNP way of eating for about 6 months.....I feel so good I ordered 3 more plans for my daughters. I have not had to take antacids, stool softeners, extra fiber stuff, since I started. My allergies are much better too.
I have been taking your Probiotics for about a year now....everybody in my office has been sick this year so far at least twice - except me! Love your products and would not be without them.
I have to share with you my latest blood work results. You can share if you want. Not only have I been able to manage by heartburn, but also my asthma and now my cholesterol. My cholesterol level went from 199 to 159 within 3 months. The doctor took me off simvastatin and will watch it over the next few months. So, I'm off the purple pill, the asthma medicine, and the cholesterol drugs. Besides that, my weight is holding steady at 130 and I feel great. The only meds I am on is thyroid. Not bad for 67.
All I need now, is to get off my lazy butt and pump up the exercise. Thanks for all your help.
I must admit that I was a skeptic when I first read about your Great Taste No Pain plan to normalize my IBS symptoms. After 3 months of persistent diarrhea, I was diagnosed by my physician as having IBS. I tried Lomotil and Imodium to correct the diarrhea to no avail. Then I tried your plan and by the second day I noticed a marked improvement and was back to a normal bowel movement by day 4. WOW! I could hardly believe the results. Even my doctor was surprised.
For the past 15 years I have been taking a PPI (Losec) and antacids to control GERD and a hiatal hernia. I am now off these meds and experiencing little or no acid reflux.
Thank you so very much for being there for us that suffers from IBS and SIBO symptoms. Keep up your excellent work.
Since I got your book Great Taste No Pain plan I soon put it to action I have suffered from Reflux and Heartburn for many years and like many others have been taking Nexium 40mg which helps but does not cure, so I had nothing to lose but try Great Taste No Pain.
During my first 4 days No Reflux No Heartburn I lost weight and I felt FANTASTIC I continued eating the recommended foods.
After my first 4 days I phoned my brother who was suffering with Diverticulitis and under doctors medication, spoke to his wife Pat told her about Great Taste No Pain and how it was helping me and look on the net so she did that and bought the book.
We have been in constant contact and she has been following through on my brotherís progress day by day she claims in a couple of weeks he is a new man. Sherry, we are a close family of 8 children and live within 30ks from each other.
We had a family reunion and the topic of the day was Great Taste No Pain 3 more books are on order and will continue to promote this wonderful Godsend have been off Nexium and feel GREAT.
