I have been on your Great Taste No Pain plan for 7 days and I can't believe the difference. The cramps, diarrhea, bloating are 90% gone.
The combining of foods is so simple to follow and I can't believe that it has changed everything for me.
Thanks for your help.
I developed IBS/Diverticulosis as a result of antibiotics given to me after a cat bite that became infected. I stopped the antibiotics after 7 days into them (3 in all). I was that person who was experiencing uncontrolled diarrhea and going 8 to 10 times during the day, as well as, being awakened at night. I cannot tell you the panic I experienced going to grocery stores, sitting in traffic, or doing anything away from home as I never knew when the blood was going to drain out of my face signaling an attack of extreme pain/bloating/rumblings. I never knew my gut could sound like a volcano during an eruption at all hours of the day!!!!! My gastroenterologist friend placed me on Questran (x 2/day) and Digestive Advantage Crohn's and Diverticular Formula. With the highest amount of fiber intake I had ever heard of. To NO avail.
After lots of research on the internet, I found your website. I started your Great Taste No Pain plan as soon as I could. Within 24 hours, the rumblings started to quiet. In the next 3 days, a "quiet" developed within my gut. The diarrhea subsided to 2-3 times a day and I noticed stools were beginning to form, although loose. The Questran is now gone.
Thank you for getting my system back into shape and know that I am a verbal advertisement for you and your system. I hope I have helped to allow you to help other people as you have helped me.
I am so happy that I finally found your website and started to take charge of my own life verses all of the disappointments going from doctor to doctor, test after test. I am 41 years old and have suffered from IBS for most, if not my entire life. I have been on Prevacid for a hiatal hernia for at least 15 to 20 years. Plus other various antispasmodic drugs, which don't work. Things went from bad to HORRIBLE at around age 37. I would not go 1 single day without horrible pain, bloating and non-stop diarrhea. I pretty much thought "is this really how I have to live the rest of my life?
One day at work, yes after running to off to the bathroom for about the 10th time, I decided there "has to be something out there". I found your website and ordered your books. I have been on your program now for a few weeks. I can honestly say the pain has substantially decreased. If I "cheat" on the food combinations, oh do I pay for it. So, let me tell you, each day gets easier because I always think before I eat "is the pain worth it," and now I just say NO! My husband and kids have been very supportive of what/why I eat the way I do the combinations.
I do LOVE the daily emails, so keep them coming. They really keep my spirits up.
May God Bless you for all that you do!
Iíve been on your Great Taste No Pain plan now for about 3 and half weeks. So far, so good. I have not had a problem with diarrhea or upset stomach in 3 weeks.
My ultrasound was fine and so was my blood work. I am going to a specialist for more test. Hope things continue to be ok!
Thanks for your help.
I was emailing to let you know how I am doing on your Great Taste No Pain plan. I started 25 days ago. I feel great, I have more energy and a lot less trips to the bathroom which was ruling my life. I had chronic diarrhea and stomach pain and gas everyday which made it impossible to plan anything. Anyone at work knew when I was not at my desk where I was. It was embarrassing, but I got use to it. I still get a day here and there with diarrhea and gas but about once a week instead of everyday and I know that will change with time.
Thank you so much the manuals and recipe book. I have lost about 15 pounds in the 25 days my mother and father are also on it and have lost 5 and 7 pounds and have more energy-so thank you again for everything
My story is not very exiting, after five crises of diverticulitis I ask the doctor to give me some pills to put an end to it. He gave me some antibiotics and after taking them for 24 hours I was sicker. I stopped them and I was ready to suffer without them and maybe die...because when it happens, you just want to die. It is difficult to explain but the more you have them the longest they last.
I turned to Internet and look for an answer to my problem. I found you thank goodness. After the 4 days on your program the pain was almost gone. I lost 7 pounds, I went to diarrhea to constipation and it is almost regular now. The only pills I take now are hormones.
Thank you very much for helping me.
About 2 months ago my 81 Y.O. father almost died from the big "D" he was bleeding internally and lost 5 pints of blood in 3 days of course we know all the poking and prodding they did and tests and scans. The doctors don't really tell you anything so I did a search and came up with your Great Taste No Pain plan.
His internal bleeding stopped in 2 days and the doctors couldn't figure it out as you know what they wanted to do was cut him open and he would not let them I have also printed out a couple of copies and given them to a few friends that have much worse "D" than my father and it has helped them also.
Again the Doctors wont tell you I guess they need repeat customers it it sad that the medical profession has turned into what it has I am now watching my diet and hopefully not have this condition when I get older
Thank you for your help
Hi Sherry Brescia,
My name is Sari and I have struggled with colitis for years. I found out I was pregnant and had to get off my meds fast. I came across your site when I was trying to find another way out.
I ordered your Great Taste No Pain plan. I know it was a GOD SENT. I felt better in a few days and my inflammation and everything else that Iím not going to mention but everyone knows what Iím talking about went away. I just wish more people would know about you. I gave the program to a close friend Johana she has also struggled with colitis longer then I have. I really pray and hope this book will help her like it helped me. Well it has to she has the same problems.
Just want to thank you for everything you have done.
I have been on your Great Taste No Pain plan for about 4 weeks. I searched the internet for help because I had been having diarrhea for over a month. The Dr. and Specialist
said it was an allergy reaction to Clindamycin, which I was given after surgery on my finger. I am allergic to the medicine that is regularly given for this, and the other medicine is $1000, so most insurances won't pay for it. I told the Specialist I was going to try your food combining plan before I did anything else. He had never heard of it and thought it was a hoax, but he said he was not too old to learn something new. He told me to call him in a week. In a week I was diarrhea free and when I talked to him, he was amazed.
In 4 weeks I have lost 15 pounds, no longer take Prilosec OTC, have no diarrhea and my blood pressure has gone down 20 points to approximately 116/72. I am doing great.
We have had several birthday celebrations, but I have not been tempted to eat the cake I made. I am not hungry, although I am always ready for the next meal or snack. I took my husband to Ruth's Chris Steak House for his birthday. I had a vegetarian meal and it was great.
I have had digestion issues ever since a child. I am 46 soon to be 47 and I am sick and tired of this constant problem. I can't even go on vacation without having difficulty. Recently, in July 2009, we went to Ocean City, Md. and on the last evening there I got so sick. It was shortly after eating as we started walking the board walk it started. Thank God there are facilities on the boardwalk! Believe me, like other people I have read about on your testimonials you have to know where the bathrooms are. Then suffering the whole way home not knowing where bathrooms are and the drive is so uncomfortable. Six hours riding in the car is so stressful when you don't know where the next stop will be.
In 2007 we were at Disney World in Florida on a school trip with my daughter, and of course the very next day we go to MGM Studios and we were having a great time. Then by dinner time it started. I missed the whole Fantasia Light Show. I spent it in the bathroom. I was scared however; I was passing blood clots big ones with the diarrhea. I suffered the whole rest of the trip which consisted 3 days and the 4th day we spent at Universal Studios. I flew home instead of riding the bus. I just wanted to get home. I was back in PA in 2 hours by plane. THANK GOD! I called my doctor and had another colonoscopy to make sure it wasn't something besides IBS, which I already was diagnosed with that in 2000. It was just a bad case of IBS. Ouch and Whew I don't want that ever again....!
When I found your site through researching from when I got back from Ocean City Md. I was so happy and relieved that finally after all this time I may have found the answer I have been looking for. Because back in May I had another endoscopy and the doctor put me on ZEGERID 40 mg one time a day in morning. Well, let me tell you I had tried to take it 3 different times with a week break between each time. Needless to say I was experiencing IBS attacks and that medicine was prescribed for acid reflux. Needless to say, I don't take it anymore and I have over 80 some pills left. I called the doctor to report my problems and to let him know that I was not going to continue to take the medicine. And his response was you need to still take it and make sure I eat yogurt and take Citrucel. My answer to that was no!!!!
Since I have been eating the way you suggest I have far less bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation. My siblings all have digestion problems more severe than mine. I have been sharing this information with them. They are men so it will take awhile if you get my drift. My kids who are 20 and soon to be 23 will learn this too!
Many Thanks for all your research and hard work. It will be a pain free life saver for me and my family. God send angles to us in many different ways. And you are one of them helping people to learn how to feed our temple the correct way. The way God intended for us to eat!!!!
