I have been on Great Taste No Pain for a little over a year. Before I found Great Taste No Pain, the acid in my stomach was very bad. I had suffered from it for about 20 years. In addition to that, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis about 15 years ago. The Colitis was so bad when the doctor did a Colonoscopy, he said he was very afraid that he was going to tear my colon before he could finish the test. I was given Prednisone for 4 months. I begged him not to give it to me. He told me that I did have a choice Ė take it and live, donít take it and die. After I had been on it for 4 months and gained 40 pounds, he began weaning me off of it, and began adding Asacol (6 pills day) and was told I would have to take them the rest of my life. Of course I was taking several other medications, too. About 2 years ago, my doctor told me 3 times that I was going to have to have surgery for the acid reflux, but I kept refusing. I could tell it was getting worse, and I began thinking about the surgery, trying to get myself mentally ready to tell him I would have it Ė that is until I found Great Taste No Pain. I am so happy I did.
I ordered your Great Taste No Pain plan. It began working after about 4 days, but I still had to take my medicine. Shortly after I stopped taking the medicine for the reflux. For the first time in 20 years, I didnít need it anymore! I kept taking the medicine for the Ulcerative Colitis for a couple of months. I was scared to quit taking it because my niece had Crohnís disease and quit taking the medicine, ending in having an Ileostomy at 19 years old! I wish she had known about GTNP!! Then one day I thought, ďIím going to quit taking these pills for the Ulcerative Colitis! If it doesnít work, I can always begin taking them again.Ē When I quit taking those pills, I began feeling so much better, and, for the first time in 20 years, my body began eliminating correctly. I havenít had another of those pills since! I have had no trouble and feel better than I ever did when I was taking all of that medicine.
I would like to join the ranks of all the people who have thanked you for their health! You are amazing, and I am so thankful that God has blessed your research and given you so much knowledge, and you have been able to help so many people! I just wish the doctors would tell all these people who are suffering so badly, that they donít have to suffer, if they combine their foods correctly!! It is such a simple solution! Thank you, again, so much!
Thank you for your Great Taste No Pain system.
My son, Brendan, is twelve. In the past several months he has had stomach cramps, a bloody stool, and has spent an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom with diarrhea.
I am not much into invasive medical procedures. I started researching colitis, since this is what my husband had when he was my son's age. I came upon your website and I bought your Great Taste No Pain system.
In one week's time, my son is experiencing almost no cramps, and the bleeding has decreased dramatically, as well as the trips to the bathroom.
He finds this way of eating easy, and he does not complain about it.
I have a lot of hope that this will be the answer to a prayer.
Again, thank you.
I have been on your program for 1 month now. I can not believe how well I feel. I have high anxiety and it affects my digestive system immensely. Just eating properly like you teach, is a Godsend for me. My colitis is under control and my IBS also. I LOVE the
cookbook and really enjoy trying the recipes. I have loved everyone that I ate.
Thank you for giving me good health and hope to go out and not suffer from pain or embarrassment. I have been able to reduce my prescription of Paxil in half, have
not needed any liquid antacid or even heavy relaxers under stress filled circumstances.
I just can't thank you enough!
I am happy to tell you my story.
I was diagnosed with a disorder called lymphocytic colitis about five years
ago. I never was one to take pills and opted not to go that route when I
was told that was all my doctor had to offer. I have suffered with it these
years while searching for answers. I tried a million things from special
diets to vitamins to lemon fasts. My symptoms of diarrhea and stomach pain
never went away. When I went on trips, I would live on Imodium just to get
March 29th was my 62nd birthday and my daughter made me this amazing dinner
consisting of a wide range of foods from oysters on the half shell, to rack
of lamb, mashed potatoes and chocolate mousse for desert. I figured I would
pay for it, but had no idea how much. I started having terrible cramps
during the night that led to nausea, throwing up and diarrhea all night. In
the morning, I thought I was over the worst of it, then began passing large
amounts of blood in my stool, which had never happened before. I was home
alone and finally called the doctor in the afternoon, who told me to get to
I ended up in the hospital for 3 days. After a colonoscopy, I was now
diagnosed with Ischemic Colitis, which is considerably worse. I was sent
home with a host of different pills to take. I learned that it was quite
serious because it involved insufficient blood flow to the colon. In many
cases gangrene can set in and part of the colon has to be removed. I was
given Celexa, Adivan, Donatal, and Tramidol and sent home.
After taking this medication for a few weeks and not being able to function
because of the side effects, I went on the internet and found you just by
chance. At first, I really had no hope. Out of desperation, and nothing to
lose, I tried your Great Taste No Pain plan.
After one day, my cramping stopped and by the second day the diarrhea
stopped too! I am now weaned off all medication and a true believer!
My daughter has been suffering from Crohn's disease for years and am so
excited about sharing this with her. This truly has changed my life......I
thank you with all my heart.
I feel that God must have directed me to you. I can't tell you how good it
feels to know that I don't have to suffer and longer. For the first time on
a very long time, I can enjoy a better quality of life thanks to you and
your miracle cure.
As long as I have known my roommate, Marilyn, for more than 25 years, she has had stomach issues.......indigestion, bloating, cramps --- you name it. The medications that came with a diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis about 12 years ago made matters worse. About six weeks ago she began to experience horrible diarrhea, as much as 8 to 10 times a day! The doctor did blood work, a stool sample and a cat scan and found nothing.
Sent her home with a diagnosis of colitis and two more medications. Needless to say, the diarrhea continued.
I spent days on the internet finding out what I could about colitis and finally found your website. We began your Great Taste No Pain program on Monday and by Tuesday the diarrhea was gone --- along with the bloating, acid reflux and cramps --- and has only
returned once. I have read your book from cover to cover and NOW it all makes sense!
We will be spreading the word about your wonderful program.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
I've had Colitis for 13 years - I'm 31. I've tried IV therapy, steroids, non-steroids, injections daily, monthly and bi-weekly. Nothing helped. I was low on potassium - and had to have it via IV several times, along with IV iron and several blood transfusions. The last few items I listed were just in the last 3 years. Since my son was born, he'll be 3 in August, I've been in a downward spiral of a flare. I spend over $500 on injections that donít work. I was referred by a friend to your Great Taste No Pain system and was hesitant to spend the money...but I'm so glad I did!
After day 4, I was feeling like myself again! My mind, body and bowels were reacting "normal". I could "go" and be done - it was unexpected, it was just relief. The plan completely makes sense.
I've now been on it for two weeks and I've lost a few pounds and a lot of bloating! I told my dr. about your system and that I wouldnít be renewing my prescription (and save $500) - and the next day she called me back and DROPPED me as a patient - after 13 years. She said she doesnít treat IBD with diet.....I laughed - and will find a new Dr. Simply amazing that she has no interest in even hearing about something that could help her other patients.....I donít know why - but - maybe you should contact her?! Let me know and I'll give her information to you. I laugh because I hold a secret she could be sharing and giving to her patients...and she wont even let me try to tell her about it. Sad.
Thank YOU from ME for making this plan available to me!
Thank you again!
I have had diarrhea for about 15 years. I have been to many doctors with no success and was diagnosed with IBS and Microscopic Colitis. I was given a prescription to bind the bile in my colon and told to take Citricil each evening. After the prescription increased to $700.00 for 3 months (plus, it didn't really help that much), I said enough is enough.
After using your Great Taste No Pain eating plan I had relief after 1 day. I faithfully followed it for 2 weeks and I guess because I felt so much better I then began to go off your plan somewhat. After the diarrhea returned with a vengeance, I'm now devoted to following your plan. My poor husband has endured trying to find me a bathroom so many times, I can't count. He was ready to fly me to Mao Clinic for help as we were desperate.
This has been an answer to our prayers. The recipes I've made, we love.
Thank you for the cookbook--it really helps.
I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis after suffering months of severe gut pain and such terrible diarrhea that I often couldn't leave the house. I had always had IBS issues but this past winter my symptoms got much worse. After a colonoscopy I was told the diagnosis and was told that the docs don't know what causes this condition or what to do for it besides take drugs. I was given Asacol and Bentyl and sent home.
After a week of continued suffering (the drugs didn't help much), I went on the internet and found your program. I figured it didn't require me to eat weird foods or take drugs.
What did I have to lose? I tried your plan and it made a difference right away. Frankly, I was shocked. I didn't expect much as I was already eating a healthy diet, doing yoga, exercising etc. But I, like you Sherry, was eating these healthy foods in combinations that made them very hard to digest. This had really helped me and it's quite easy once you understand the principles. No, I don't get to throw food into my stomach willy nilly but the quality of my life is a whole lot better! Being mindful about how you eat is a small price to pay in my opinion.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart!!!!
My name is Helga, I am from England. After suffering from colitis for 22 years I canít believe the change to my life since following your food combing eating plan.
3 years ago when I was having a severe out break, I went to see a person who test you for food allergies; and she told me to cut out wheat, dairy, oats, honey, and raw onions. Which helped at first. Then I had a flare up again, which I couldnít understand.
Then I went on the internet and discovered your Great Taste No Pain eating plan and cannot believe how quickly it worked. I no longer suffer from painful cramps or blood and mucus when I go to toilet. Itís totally changed my social life; I can go out now without the added worry of finding out were the nearest loo is.
Thank you Sherry,
I just have to tell you about a month ago I got Colitis. I have never had any serious illness before. Imodium didnít help. I ended up in the emergency room with very bad pain. The doctors just said more or less that I would have to live with it. I said no way. There had to be something out there to help. That is when I found your book on the internet. I decided to give it a try. After the first day I couldnít believe it. The pain was gone. I followed the plan for the next three days. I havenít felt this good in a long time.
Your book has been a life saver. I donít know how, but it works. My pain is gone.
