I got a great letter yesterday from a client who
had what I call "graduating digestive challenges."
With graduating digestive challenges, you start out with
some vague stomach symptoms (like pain, constipation, etc.)
for a while, then you "graduate" to a diagnosis and are
You take the medicine for a while, but since they don't
actually cure the root cause of the problems (they just
address symptoms), your condition "graduates" to something
else...usually something much worse.
This cycle can go on and on.
That's what happened with Carol. She started out with
stomach pain, diarrhea and acid reflux, and eventually
graduated to diverticulitis and colitis.
But now she has none of the above.
Here's her story:
I suffered with stomach pain, diarrhea, food stuck in my
esophagus and acid reflux for over 4 years.
I had 2 esophageal stretchings in 2006 and was told I
would have to take Nexium and Prilosec daily for the rest
of my life. I also frequently took Imodium AD to be able
to leave my house.
I have recently moved to a new area and after having
suffered most of January and February I found a new doctor.
I had a colonoscopy on a Friday, and was told I have severe
diverticulitis and some colitis.
I found your web page the next day http://www.greattastenopain.com/great.asp and started your
4 day plan on that Sunday. It made me feel good right away
and by the time I went for a CT Scan the following Thursday
the colitis was gone.
After the great results I had on the 4 day plan I ordered
I no longer have acid reflux nor do I have stomach pain or
bowel trouble. Plus the allergy-caused mucus in my throat -
And I lost 5 pounds!
I have been sticking as close to the plan as I can for 4
weeks and feel really good.
As so many people have already said, THANK YOU so much for
your research and sharing with others.
SB: Carol, you found Great Taste No Pain just in time.
Congratulations on your new pain-free life.
There are some important points about Carol's letter that
should not go unnoticed:
1) She was told she would be on Nexium and Prilosec
everyday for LIFE.
Nexium is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), meaning it shuts
down the acid pumps in your stomach.
But since your stomach needs to secrete acid to digest
proteins, Nexium doesn't "treat" a thing--All it does is
prevent your stomach from doing its job.
And when your stomach can't secrete the acid it needs to
digest your food, you get constipation, diarrhea, gas,
cramps, nausea and vomiting.
(By the way, all of those symptoms I just mentioned are
documented side effects of Nexium use. Makes sense, huh?)
Carol developed diverticulitis and colitis after being on
Nexium for 3 years. That's because the Nexium was
destroying her digestion, and her colon was affected by the
badly digested wastes.
She was told to take Nexium for life--even though no
safety studies exist for periods longer than 12 months. So
she was a human guinea pig, too.
2) The mucus in Carol's throat also disappeared.
Mucus protects your body by putting a light, slippery
coating on everything you eat or drink. If there are
toxins in what you've taken in, the mucus immediately
starts working to engulf them and move them out of the
body. When this happens, it becomes thick, gooey and
When you eat a lot of acid-forming foods and food
combinations (like most people do today), your mucus treats
the acid as a poison and sees your food as dangerous.
So it goes into protection mode to surround it, and you
get that thick, gooey feeling in the back of your throat
that causes you to cough and clear your throat.
That's what was happening to Carol. But since she reduced
the acid in her diet with GTNP, her mucus no longer sees
her food as an "invader" and she no longer has a clogged
3) Carol is off all the medicine.
This is a heartbreaking point. There are people all over
the world who can't leave their house for fear of a
digestive "attack" in public, or if they do leave, they
must take medicine first.
I was in that boat and it was no fun at all. I dreaded
social occasions and long business meetings because of my
sudden IBS attacks.
It was very embarrassing to keep excusing myself to go to
the ladies room or to have my buttons popping off my pants
or skirt because of the horrible bloating I had.
But those days are gone forever for Carol and me. Just by
doing one thing--eating how I show you in Great Taste No
If you want to get off the purple pills, feel great and
stop the endless cycle of graduating digestive challenges,
you must do this one thing...
