People who turn 40 are often called "over the hill"
because it represents the halfway point in the average
Greeting card and stationery manufacturers have make a
fortune selling black balloons, paper plates with coffins
on them and cut-outs of the grim reaper for 40th birthdays.
Sadly, there is an air of truth to it. Most people start
to feel more aches and pains, gain weight and have other
sicknesses crop up more often after 40.
But what they don't realize is that it's NOT the age
that's doing it.
It's just the body breaking down because of fighting
acidity for so long...kind of like when a car rusts out
after so many winters.
Most are unaware of the horrible effects of long-term
acidity on the body. Instead, our society has come to
accept being sick in middle and old age as normal.
But it's not!
Sick is NEVER normal--not at 40, not at 65, and not even
at 80 and beyond.
But when your body's health is compromised by an acid pH
for years and years, it simply breaks down over time and
starts to die.
People whose blood routinely measures in the ideal pH
range, stay vital and feel great even into old age.
That breaking down can take a number of different forms
including arthritis, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure,
heart disease, kidney failure, chronic fatigue syndrome,
diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, cysts and tumors,
That's what an acid pH leads to.
But the human body is an amazing machine that can bounce
back from years of acidity if the cause of it is ended.
Aches and pains start to go away quickly. The immune
system strengthens and balances daily. Energy goes way up.
Sleep improves right away.
And the numbers on those lab tests begin to look really
I got a letter today from a client (Connie) that is a
perfect example of the body saying "Thank you!" to becoming
Here's what she says:
After turning forty, I found my body failing me at every
Along with gradually gaining weight, I developed migraines
and bone spurs and had to get bifocals. Then came the high
blood pressure, high cholesterol and hot flashes.
When the biggies arrived--osteoporosis, diverticulitis,
and most recently, diabetes--I felt like a chubby poster
child for what happens when you think you're healthy but
This past fall I was still trying desperately to eat
"balanced meals" and I was miserable. Eventually my doctor
suggested a high protein/low carb diet, leaving out the
veggies and fruits which appeared to tear up my digestive
That worked with green beans as the only vegetable I could
tolerate, and bananas as my only fruit. But at the same
time, my glucose levels continued to rise and I was
diagnosed with diabetes.
Ten days ago I met with a diabetic case worker, started to
monitor my glucose levels several times per day, and was
told to follow a diabetic diet--which stresses fruits and
Within the first two days of trying your plan, I was
eating salads, vegetables, and fruit again...and feeling
great. I wasn't hungry an hour after eating. I didn't
crave sweets. I gave up coffee for tea [still with
caffeine but not nearly as acidic]. My digestive system
calmed down immediately.
I have now been following the plan for 7 days, I feel
great, and have lost about 5 pounds.
But here is the best news: My glucose levels are
consistently within the normal range. I can't wait to
return to the clinic next week and have them see what has
I have never been a big believer in "diets" and have
probably never stayed with one for over two days! But GTNP
is different. And for me, it has become a whole new way of
taking care of myself.
My friends are already getting tired of hearing me talk
about it, but maybe they too will eventually realize that
GTNP makes one heck of a lot of sense!

SEB: Connie, great! I'm so psyched for you. You're
right--GTNP is different. It's not a diet--just a way of
eating that reduces the acidity in your body. And you're
reaping the benefits of that in BIG ways!
All my best to you.
Now for everyone else (especially those over 40 like
Connie and myself): Imagine what becoming more alkaline
will do for you.
Got aches and pains? Extra pounds you want to shed? Need
to feel more awake when you're awake? Want to decrease or
get off some medications?
PS: Lori's husband has seen great improvement in his
ulcers and joint pain:
My husband has hemochromatosis and suffers, among many
other things, from a great deal of joint pain.
Last year, he was also diagnosed with a stomach ulcer.
After a year of Protonix and various other acid blockers
with no results, I set off to find an "ulcer diet" to help
him. I came across your web site and that night we began
After 4 days on the "Great Taste, No Pain" plan, he
stopped taking the daytime dose of medication and after 2
weeks was completely off of the ulcer medication.
It has been a month now and he has lost 8 lbs. and feels
good. He is able to sleep through the night without waking
up from stomach pain.
In addition to the stomach pain going away, he is no
longer limping. It seems that the diet is also helping the
joint pain that he has suffered with for years!
The hemochromatosis may never go away, but it seems that
the diet is helping the symptoms.
This has been a wonderful find and it will benefit our
