I have been on GTNP for one week now and if I could come thru the computer and kiss you, I would! I was in such agonizing pain with "gastritis" possible "ulcer" pain that I wanted to die! First of all, after being on your plan for ONE day, I was pain free! I was prescribed Nexium and I will continue for the remainder of prescription, but that is it! I was drinking Mylanta like it was water....I have not drank that since day one on the plan!
Itís such an easy diet to follow and I feel absolutely wonderful! I think I have told everyone and their brother about this plan....I am simply amazed by this plan and all of the knowledge you have given to me~
I have been suffering from ulcerative colitis for the past ten years, passing bloody puss and feeling bloated. I was prescribed 6-8 pills a day indefinitely plus having to use suppositories daily to calm down the bleeding. My mornings were the worst, having to prepare the kids for school while feeling unbearable, painful urges to go to the bathroom.
I was becoming a little scared, I'm 44 taking a substantial amount of medication daily and still do not feel right. How would it be when I'm older? So desperately I was searching for clues and I fortunately came across your "Great Taste No Pain" plan.
I started following your plan and the symptoms started to improve after the third day. The bleeding has decreased considerably. The urges in the morning have stopped and when I feel the need to go to the bathroom it's controllable. I can go out knowing that I won't have to rush to a bathroom if I feel it coming. I have now reduced my medication intake and intend to keep doing so gradually.
The food is great and I look forward to the carrot and peanut butter snack. I never thought that I was allowed to eat pancakes for breakfast. I feel healthier and more content and most importantly with more energy to cope through the day.
All this thanks to your "Great Taste No Pain' diet and the information that I have been receiving.
Thank you, Sherry.
I found your plan last week (Monday) surfing the internet and started following your Great Taste No Pain plan. I've been diagnosed with gastritis and acid reflux at the age of 20.
I was in more or less constant pain with my stomach and the specialist prescribed drugs and told me to avoid alcohol and take my meal & snacks regularly (on time diet).
I was on the medication for 36 years but I didn't feel it was of much benefit. The pain in my stomach will be gone for a period of time then come back again.
I also read about all the side-effects of the medication - the primary one being that reducing stomach acid production leads to undigested food passing through the gut and hence nutrient absorption being reduced, etc.
I started your plan and decided to stop immediately taking my medication. My stomach was much calmer at this stage and over a week into the plan I can say that I am pain free now pretty much all the time, which I feel shows I am well on the road to total recovery.
I have also found that my energy levels are much more even. I ate Greek salad last night and must say it was delicious and very satisfying.
I have felt much better on the plan and have also lost some weight effortlessly which is beneficial as I could do with reducing my waistline somewhat!
Overall I must say that I am delighted with your plan. By the way, I'm 56 years old now. Just celebrate last October. I've forwarded your Great Taste No Pain Diet Plan to my friends.
More Power to you, your family, and your work.
I hope and pray that all medical community in the world will see the light!
May our Lord GOD bless us all.
Thank you and Best regards,
I have been on Nexium for gastritis for 3 months had a gastroscopy a few weeks back which showed an inflamed stomach. I had distressing wind each night after the evening meal. After reading your plan I have concentrated on food combinations and eating more alkaline foods. My stomach has settled and I have not needed to take the Nexium. Thanks for all your help. I shall make this a lifelong pattern of eating now.
I am on my fourth day of your eating plan and am amazed at the results. I have not taken 1 tablet in 3 days. Normally I take anything up to 20 tablets per day - Nexium, Scopex, Allergex, Adco Cyclizine, Librax etc.
I have been suffering with Acid Reflux, Colitis, Gastritis, Diverticulitis, and IBS - all the things you mention for the past 5 years. I have almost died on numerous occasions and been in hospital more times than I can count.
You are an absolute Godsend. I cannot believe this is working for me. I have been to numerous doctors, specialists, dieticians to no avail.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I at last feel like I have my life back.
Thank you so much once again and have a good day.
Just wanted to let you know I feel so much better after 1 week (Crohn's, I have halved my steroids too)
Just one other point in England we have a free NHS (National health service) except for prescriptions for medicine/drugs at £8 per item, and free but long waiting lists for hospital treatment which sounds different to the USA but there is 1 common link still - the Docs don't ever seem to be able to get to the cause other than prescribe more drugs or refer you to a specialist who offers you different drugs & then an operation to remove the disease !!
I have been following your "Great Taste - No Pain" way of eating for about a week and a half now and I would like to share my great news with you.
At first I thought that this was one of those typical diets such as the Atkins or Weight Watchers. I have tried Weight Watchers, and yes I did lose weight, but I would still be bloated, extremely tired after a meal and always ended up going back to my so called "normal" way of eating. I have never felt as healthy as I do until my mother told me about you.
After having a flare up, my doctor put me on prednisone and my energy level was out of this world. I just want to tell you that following my new diet has given me almost the same amount of energy. The only difference is its all natural. I had weaned myself off my medication prior having my colonoscopy a few months ago. I wanted to compare the results from my last one. The results showed my system being better than when I was on 3 different medications.
Come to think of it, no meds and not being on a healthy diet could have been fatal.
Since I've been on your "Great Taste-No Pain" I no longer have problems with bowel movements. It is easy to go and I go as often as a human being should go. I don't feel bloated after a meal, including just a small one. The feeling is amazing when I just eat the way you teach. And I'm not rushing to my bed.
Thank you, Sherry, for my new way of healthy consumption of great tasting foods and the best invention for my Crohn's. I'm a new person inside and out.
I have lost a couple of pounds as well. I would recommend this new healthy way of eating to any and everyone. Hey, what happened to all of my junk food "Cravings"? Absolutely amazing.
Thank you for sharing your "true" experiences.
Have a Blessed Day,
Thank you, thank you, and thank you - 1000 times over again.
I had been diagnosed with diveritulosis seven years ago. The truth is I
have always had to be very careful about what I ate and when I ate it.
Food was not my friend.
After a recent visit to the doctor (I had been experiencing non-stop tummy
problems for 3-4 months) and the nurse practitioner looking at me and
asking me what I wanted to do about it, I went home and decided that they
(the medical profession) had no plan to help me with my situation. I did
a search on the internet for diverticulosis and up your website popped!
Life has been ever so much better since I have been on your eating plan.
I have lost 14 pounds (most of it poop I believe!); sleep very soundly at
night now, no need for extra pillows because I don't get clogged up
anymore (I thought I had allergies - I did - only the allergies were
caused by eating the wrong foods together) and my energy level has soared.
My arthritis has also subsided. I was fortunate that I was not on any
medication, but after following your plan, my overall aches and pains have
significantly been reduced.
My brother, who has suffered from Crohn's Disease for 18 years, is also on
the plan. He has basically stopped taking all of his medication. He
tells me everyday how much better he feels and the problematic diarrhea
(sp?) is non-existent. He can't believe how much better he feels. He
just turned 66 and tells me this is the best he has felt in years!
For me, not having stomach pain everyday, not having to worry about eating
(will I have to be close to a bathroom just in case the food ran through
me) - all of those worries/issues have disappeared. I feel released from
an endless cycle that had me almost chained to my house each day for fear
of having some unexpected 'accident' while out in public.
Again, thank you, thank you, and thank you.
Age 64 and feeling better than ever thanks to your plan!
Words however they may be put together can not properly convey my gratitude to you.
What you did in my body with your GTNP combination was a miracle, to put it subtly. I started experiencing pains and discomfort in my internals a little over 2yrs ago and after a long period of guesses; I was diagnosed with a gastric ulcer. I was placed on antacids, Zantac, Emoprazole and other antibiotics.
I've been on these drugs for almost 2yrs, but relief never came! I was in search of a solution for my issue that I saw your Great Taste No Pain plan that has virtually solved the problem.
I feel great now. My hitherto noisy stomach has succumbed to the wisdom of Great Taste No Pain. I wake up light these days and feel much younger than I have for a long time. I used to have serious troubles at my joints (knees, elbows and shoulders), now the pain is fading.
Today, I've completely stopped the medications. Please, if there's anything else I need to do to consolidate on the gains I have made, do not hesitate to tell me about them.
Thank you so much for your food combination therapy and May God bless you for being there for us.
I have now been on your plan for about 2 weeks and I tell you I am feeling much better. Leading up to my surgery on 09/04/2008 (partial hysterectomy), I was having these choking coughing spells that would awaken me during the night. After about a month of this, I finally had enough and decided to call my GP, who said it sounded like I had acid reflux because the coughing was happening during the night. Now I was a little shocked because I didn't have what they called the classic GERD symptoms. No burning, etc. I thought that I had allergy issues. Well I was put on Nexium and also diagnosed with a sinus infection.
I went in for my surgery and as a result of the surgery, my blood pressure and pulse rate went way up. I saw specialist after specialist only to be placed on Atenolol for the elevated pulse rate. I went to an allergist and was put on antibiotics again for what she called an unresolved sinus infection. I later went through the allergy test and found out that I was allergic to just about everything and was give an inhaler. I saw a gastro specialist and was told that I have mild signs of Esophagitis.
After starting your program my blood pressure went way down, 95/58 and the Atenolol had to be adjusted to half of the dose. I am sleeping so peacefully at night that it is unreal and on only one pillow! I was on Lipitor and am no longer on this medication. I am so happy to have found your plan. Kudos to you and your hard work.
May God Bless you because you certainly have been a blessing to me and my health.
