Just wanted to say a huge 'THANK YOU' for the powerful eating program you have put together. For nearly 2 years, I have been nagged with a burning sensation in my upper chest. Nexium, Prevacid, antacids, Rolaids, and Tums were only effective for the very short term. Finally, last week, after an upper GI, I was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia.
I have been on your program for 8 days now, have lost 7 pounds, and only have burning when I don't pay attention to the timing of my snacks/meals. I was prescribed Prilosec as my next med, and I haven't even filled the prescription. I look forward to the next 22 days and the next 52 years, for that matter. I am 52 years, 10 months old. It's a treat to eat now and to step on my scale, which I have a love/hate relationship with!
I'm writing from South Africa and cannot believe that something is really working for me! This is my 2nd week of following your Great Taste No Pain plan.
I stopped taking Omez and feel like taking the last prescription back to the pharmacist as it is still unopened as I discover your Great Taste No Pain plan. All the medicine they gave me as part of the chemo treatment for Lymphoma is working on my stomach.
I have a peptic ulcer and was also diagnosed years ago with IBS and I cannot even begin to tell you about all the medicine I've been taken all these years - never again - I'm going on your plan for the rest of my life.
Thank you very much,
Betsy Le Roux
I had severe pain for 24 hrs. Went to the doctor and was diagnosed with diverticulitis. I wasn't told anything except don't eat heavy foods or alcohol for a few days.
I found your web site and tried your Great Taste No Pain plan for a few days. It was amazing what happened. I have had bloating and gas for most of my life - after a few days I had none. My energy came back; my knees stopped hurting because I lost weight while on this diet.
I have continued eating the correct foods and will continue to do so until I have lost the weight I want to. I was able to stop my blood pressure medicine and high cholesterol medicine due to losing the weight. I am off of my acid reflux medicine due to the diet.
So, thank you for the wonderful recipes and helping me to return to good health.
I was eating a lot of the things you instructed in your plan. I did it in the order you prescribed and I've seen a definite difference in my body. I'm a type 1 diabetic, so I'll never be able to get off the insulin completely, but I've been able to cut down on the amount of insulin I take. I'm also a breast cancer survivor and have had a stroke in the past. I've been able to cut down on my blood pressure meds and have had less trouble with my acid reflux and have cut down on those meds as well. In time, I'm hoping to cut most of those meds out.
Thanks so much for everything!!
I just have to say thank you, thank you so much. Two yrs ago my doctor told me I would have to take Prilosec OTC for the rest of my life. The acid reflux I was experiencing was terrible, and I had been diagnosed with 3 ulcers, I couldn't see any other option. About 4 months ago I started feeling like something was wrong, but I couldn't put my finger on it. I went to another doctor, asked him what it could be. He said that I was experiencing the side affects from the Prilosec. I stopped right away and
started looking for an alternative for relief.
I saw your ad, and I thought it was worth it to me to see if it could work. Well, it's been 5 days now and I don't have any of the symptoms I had suffered with for yrs. In fact, my son and his wife came over to visit last night and they brought some wine which we enjoyed together. I have not been able to drink any wine for so long that I was just waiting for the acid reflux to start after the first drink. Nothing happened. So I decided to go ahead and finish my glass of wine. I went to bed without taking any Rolaids and was free of any acid reflux or any pain at all. I'm so excited I can't tell you how it feels to be free from that discomfort and pain.
So I just wanted to express my gratitude for all your work in finding this help for us sufferers.
My husband has hemochromatosis and suffers, among many other things, from a great deal of joint pain. Last year, he was also diagnosed with a stomach ulcer. After a year of protonix and various other acid blockers with no results, I set off to find an "ulcer diet" to help him. I came across your web site and that night we began your diet.
After 4 days on the "Great Taste, No Pain" diet, he stopped taking the daytime dose of medication and after 2 weeks was completely off of the ulcer medication. It has been a month now and he has lost 8 lbs. and feels good. He is able to sleep through the night without waking up from stomach pain. In addition to the stomach pain going away, he is no longer limping. It seems that the diet is also helping the joint pain that he has suffered with for years! The hemochromatosis may never go away, but it seems that the diet is helping the symptoms.
This has been a wonderful find and it will benefit our entire family.
I know you have received thousands of these emails. But I wanted to thank you so much. I'm 47 yrs old, and have had IBS symptoms my entire life. Three weeks ago I started with severe abdominal pain. I couldn't work, I couldn't eat. After a week of no let up, my husband took me to the emergency room. I couldn't take it anymore. There I was diagnosed with severe gastritis. The doctor told me to go on the standard, bland diet, with nexium and Percocet for pain. The generic of nexium was $62.00 and I couldn't afford it. So I started taking ronitadine 6 x a day. It took the edge off, but no real relief. I still couldn't eat or drive, let alone go to work. It was that bad. So I started searching the internet for digestive treatments and I found you! The meal plan was a Godsend. I implemented the plan with what I had on hand to eat. I was so relieved with my very first meal that I cried. By the third day, all the pain and distention was completely gone. I never heard about acidosis before and what it can do to the body. I also have diabetic neuropathy and fibromyalgia. I was popping so much acetaminophen over the years that the ER doctor told me my liver was stressed. However, since following this plan and reducing my body acids, the pain from those two conditions have all gone away. I can sleep at night now. And no more drugs except for the insulin! Even my blood sugars are more stable. Thank you so very, very much.
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!
Thanks to your Great Taste No Pain plan. I was diagnosed with colitis about six months ago and put on meds that made my hair fall out in gobs. I told the surgeon this and he told me that this was not a side affect he was aware of. After doing my own investigation, I found that hair loss was a listed side effect which was in BIG BLOCK letters of the PDR.
After finding your website, ordering and following your heaven sent plan, I immediately began to live without awful cramps and continuous diarrhea. After a week and a half of eating delicious food, I was med free and on my one month check up with the surgeon and family doctor, they both told me I was crazy for stopping my meds and pretty much said I would be back. Won't it be fun to prove them wrong?
Thank you for all the words of encouragement! You are awesome!!! Canít' wait to greet the NEW DAY and not be afraid to enjoy life without first scoping out the nearest restroom!!
Your pain free and diarrhea free friend,
I have been on your Great Taste No Pain plan for about three weeks now and I have not had to take any indigestion pills since. I have suffered with indigestion all my life (71 years) and now am free.
Your plan was a last resort after four years suffering diverticulitis followed by a nasty flare up of ulcerative colitis recently. We nearly cancelled our holiday, but four days into your plan I felt well enough to go.
A hospital appointment the other day enabled me to come off all medication other than the usual high blood pressure and cholesterol pills.
