I am just completing my 4th day on your Great Taste No Pain plan. Although I am not 100% healed, I am about 80% there. I could have had better results if I adhered more strictly to the plan. I did have a few deviations. Overall though, the plan is working great for me and I can understand the basic concept of proper food combing.
Regarding my gut history, my symptoms and experience over the years has been almost exactly what yours has been. I am 67 years old and have had numerous gut problems over the last 45 years ranging from bleeding ulcers, hiatal hernia, acid reflux, gastritis, and difficulty swallowing due to a restrictive esophagus with scar tissue.
The classic problems you have experienced have bothered me over the years from time to time, but beginning about 2 months ago, they began occurring more frequently with a greater intensity on a daily basis, mostly right after each meal. Within 30 minute to an hour after a meal I would have severe stomach cramps followed by uncontrollable diarrhea.
I thought the best thing to do was to increase my dosage of Nexium which I have been taking for 10 years. I increased the dosage from 1 to 2 then 3 pills a day, but the pain and diarrhea continued. A visit to my gastroenterologist who I have been seeing for the last 20 years didn't seem too concerned and basically though I should just continue the Nexium. I continued to get worse and more miserable and as time progressed, my energy level began dropping and I became lethargic and even depressed.
I might add at this point that my diet all my life has been terrible, virtually no live foods such as fruit and green vegetables. I must admit that after trying numerous diets, doctor advice and prescription medications, I am very skeptical, but after reading about your Great Taste No Pain plan I felt that what you say just might work.
As I mentioned earlier, I am on my 4th day of your plan and it really does work! For the first time in over 40 years, I am virtually free of gut problems, and my energy level is much better.
This past August, I had a gastritis attack. These attacks are not new to me, as I have visited the emergency room four times in the past five years (to get relief from the pain). I was on my couch, in the middle of the night, praying for any kind of relief.....asking God for an answer.....anything that could put me out of my misery! I turned on my laptop for an internet search and typed in "gastritis". The first website that came up was your Great Taste No Pain. I decided to give it a try and started the program. After the third day, I was feeling SO MUCH BETTER. This is the best money I ever spent!
I was amazed that I could follow a plan that included ALL THE FOODS I LOVE! I have been following the plan since the end of August, and I have had absolutely NO PAIN!!!! I also have suffered with IBS (actually my whole life), and for the first time, ever, I don't have alternating constipation and diarrhea, gas, belching, and bloating!
This program has truly been a God send! I have even lost weight....without
Dieting or feeling deprived!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
For many years I have suffered from reflux excess acid etc. I had several bouts of diarrhea bloating and discomfort and having medications for this. My doctor arranged for tests Barium enema and camera investigation and I was assured nothing was found apart from small hemorrhoids. These tests were done five years ago. I just carried on thinking it was maybe just stress causing my bouts. Then three weeks ago I began the usual symptoms until the pain got so bad I made a trip to the G. P. I was told I had diverticulitis and that my previous tests 5 years prior had shown diverticular disease.
I queried this as I had never been told, maybe they thought it was not severe enough to worry about was the doctors reply. I was given a course of strong antibiotics but after 48 hours things seemed to be getting worse. This is when I found your Website and tried your "Great Taste No Pain " plan. Things immediately started to improve and I completed the course of antibiotics along with your plan.
I am only grateful that I found your site before having to have more medication prescribed. I still have to undergo another barium enema my G.P. is arranging but I know that this has really helped.
Thank you so much
I suffered from chronic diarrhea, stomach cramps, gas and bloating for more than ten years. After a recent dramatic loss in weight, due to an increase I think in the diarrhea, I was subjected to every test imaginable, put on several medications (none of which helped) and gobbled Imodium in large doses, consequently having to deal with constipation or hard difficult to pass stools that made me strain mightily.
I also suffer from diverticulosis, which during my colonoscopy was said to be spreading, although I haven't had an attack of diverticulitis since I've been on your Great Taste No Pain program.
I have been on your Great Taste No Pain program for about two weeks now and I haven't had one episode of the explosive diarrhea that was so common and I haven't taken one Imodium or any of the other meds that doctors prescribed. I have had regular, normal bowel movements since being on your program and I haven't had to strain at all. The cramps, pain and bloating have stopped as well.
Also, I have been taking Aciphex for indigestion/acid reflux for years. I stopped taking the drug when I went on your program and haven't had even a hint of indigestion or acid reflux since.
My wife and I are both following the program and we love your recipes.
I am 58 and your Great Taste No Pain program has improved my overall health, my energy is better and my digestive problems have been eliminated. It is a whole new and healthful way of life for both me and my wife.
Thank you, Sherry,
Thanks so much for your Great Taste No Pain program!! I am your biggest advertisement!! I have been on the program for 3 weeks and I stopped the diarrhea and bloating the third day. You can only imagine the people who have no clue what the digestive system is made for..........including me!! It has been the most beneficial thing I have ever done.
I eagerly searched your site each day hoping you would have stories from gastric bypass patients; I am one!! I was fully convinced that the surgery had gone bad after 7 years and all the diet cokes I was hooked on had caused the damage to my colon. Your website was literally an answer to prayer because my doctor's appointment was for late afternoon and I prayed for an answer and quickly found your website!!
Thank you and my dear Lord for the wonderful blessing. I AM a new person!!
I have followed your Great Taste No Pain plan for two weeks now. I have had relief from it. I use to have explosions a lot. I am 80 years old and had this for 20 years now. Itís a relief not to have any longer.
Thank you very much,
It is true what you say "follow a step by step plan on what you eat can free you from pain and discomfort" I had been to visit my Doctor twice, she tried different drugs, they didn't
work! An appointment was made to see a specialist. This took 6 weeks.
After a couple of weeks of pain and diarrhea plus great discomfort at night with difficulty in sleeping I went on the internet and found IBS it was all the symptoms that I had.
Luckily I found your website and decided to give your Great Taste No Pain plan a try. It worked.
Thank you for all the research that you have done.
I have been on your Great Taste No Pain plan for three weeks now. I knew I had to do
something and I just happened onto your website and after looking it over thought,Ē Why not?"
I have had problems with severe diarrhea, which was getting so bad that I almost hated to eat food because as soon as the food was eaten in a matter of minutes I'd be heading to the bathroom. My stomach would also bloat up like I was 5 months pregnant. Of course that leads to embarrassing gas emissions at inopportune times.
It used to be that after three trips to the bathroom I would be good for the day, but this past year that was not true. I would have diarrhea off and on all day. I kept a supply of Imodium handy. Course then I would become constipated for several days. It was a vicious cycle.
I also developed acid reflux which was so severe it would wake me up with contents of my stomach coming up into my mouth. I was put on several different medications the last being nexium. I took this daily because if I didn't I had symptoms. I found myself eliminating more and more foods that I thought was causing it--pizza, anything with tomatoes, etc. I was also trying to eliminate the foods that I associated with diarrhea
such as corn, nuts, and milk products. I thought I was lactose intolerant as well. Eating was becoming less fun all the time.
I am having normal stools once again. I don't have to carry a roll of toilet paper in the car for times of emergency stops when traveling. My stomach is flat and I feel so much better. I have also lost 5 pounds which is great as well. I no longer take Imodium or nexium. I don't have acid reflux at night and sleep on a regular pillow now (instead of a raised wedge). And surprising to me, I do not crave candy and other sweets! I was
very much of a sweet tooth all my life and never thought I'd see the day when I could resist desserts and candy!
Thank you Sherry for giving my life back.
I am trying your recipes and all they have been very tasty so far. My husband enjoys them as well.
I am so grateful that I purchased your Great Taste No Pain system.
I was hospitalized 3 months ago with 3 infected areas in my colon due to diverticulitis.
This was my second attack. Thee months hence I was still having extreme flatus and diarrhea.
I started searching the internet for this problem and I ran across your website. I have experience relief after on day on your Great Taste No Pain plan. Itís been a week now on your plan and my stools are now normal. I also have lost 3 pounds.
I have been having stomach problems, diarrhea, constipation, bloating and heartburn probably for the last six months or so. Several times I thought I would have to go to the emergency room because I was in so much pain.
Then one day decided to search the network and try so find out what was wrong with me without going to the doctor and having him put me on a bunch of medications. Don't like to take prescriptions because of all the side effects. I found your Great Taste No Pain plan and ordered it. I have been using it for about four days and when I follow the plan as you say I feel so much better.
I also have had trouble with diverticulitis too so am sure this will help that.
