Remember how I mentioned yesterday that 6 or 7 out of 10
Crohn's sufferers end up having surgery to have some of
their intestines removed?
And how the small intestine can swell up so badly that it
gets blocked up and wastes can't move (a potentially life-
Well, here is a real-life story of a woman who went
through exactly that.
I'll let her tell you the story in her own words:
Back in 1976 I had 63 1/2 in. (over 5 feet) of intestines
removed due to Crohn's disease.
I seemed fine after that until in 2002, due to a
dysfunctioning thyroid, they put me on Synthroid. That
started the whole ball rolling.
I started with one intestinal blockage after the other.
For five years, I was very ill and in bed most of the
time, nearly losing my life several times.
Last October, I was up at the Mayo Clinic for a week for
testing. They found my whole system was highly inflamed
and ulcerated. They tried to put me on two different
medicines which I couldn't tolerate.
On March 19th, I was rushed to the hospital and
immediately hooked up to an IV. They said that if it was
one day later, I would have been a goner.
The surgeon said he did not want to operate anymore, so
we opted for Prednisone. I was released Saturday March
22nd and by the next Tuesday, I was getting all of the
side effects from the Prednisone.
On Thursday morning March 27th, we heard you on our local
radio show and immediately I went in and called up your
website. What you said made sense to me and when I read
your website, I ordered your system.
Starting that Saturday March 29th, I began your eating
plan. Needless to say, I began feeling better by the
second day and as long as I stay on your plan, I am free
of all pain and discomfort.
I now know that this is God's plan for me and I will
stick with it. I will follow your system and drink water
(alkaline) and know that I will be healed and free for the
rest of my time.
When I go back to the Mayo Clinic I intend to tell the
doctor I want off the meds. Believe me, there will be no
replacement meds either.
By the way, I am 73 years old. I love your recipes and
really don't mind giving up the old way of eating.
Especially when I can eat and not have anymore of the pain
Thank you so very much for sharing with all of us your
experiences and what you learned. That's where its all
at, sharing with one another what works for us in the
I do not believe God wants #1- for us to be sick, and #2-
to live on meds. He gave us the right kind of food and
water to drink. Man is the one who came in and messed
So, its "Kangen" (back to nature).

SB: This is living proof that the simple, easy to follow
plan I teach can do , even for someone who lost over 5
FEET of intestines and nearly died several times because
of the severe inflammation!
I call my system Great Taste No Pain for a very good
reason. http://greattastenopain.com Eating delicious
foods without pain. Feeling good naturally, without the
need for the fake health created by dangerous drugs.
Mary didn't mention it in her letter, but the side
effects of the Prednisone she was given (a steroid
commonly prescribed for Crohn's) include:
Salt and fluid retention, weight gain, high blood
pressure, headache and muscle weakness.
It also causes face puffiness (moon face), thinning and
easy bruising of the skin, impaired wound healing,
glaucoma, cataracts and ulcers in the stomach and duodenum.
Prednisone causes growth retardation in children,
worsening of diabetes, irregular periods, rounding of the
upper back ("buffalo hump"), obesity and convulsions.
The psychiatric effects include depression, euphoria,
insomnia, mood swings, personality changes, and even
If you have Crohn's, that's what the medical community
has to offer you...
That and cutting you open and removing intestines.
Eliminate the effects of Crohn's naturally like Mary.
Make your digestion nice and easy and keep those
intestines quiet. I'll teach you how in Great Taste No
To your health,
PS: Josie's 90 year-old Mom got diverticulitis but is
feeling fine now:
When my Mom got diverticulitis, we started watching the
food she eats and she is doing fine. Our being Asian
helps a lot with the kind of food we eat because we very
very seldom eat processed foods.
Doctors are surprised that at age 90 the only medication
she has is for her eyes and blood pressure. Her recent
visit to the doctor surprised us with a reading of 120/70
BP. She is not fat, neither any of the family are.
It's only when we sometimes forget to watch the
combination of food we eat that we (at least me)
experience stomach problems. Like I observed, eating in
moderation and choosing the right combination of food
frees us from trouble.
Again, thanks for sharing, I am passing this info to my
sister-in-law since she is dependent on medication about
her stomach. May you be blessed with helping out people.
