Another Diverticulitis sufferer saved from the knife
In the last couple days I've talked about the importance
of asking questions and exploring other options when you're
faced with a doctor telling you that a drug or the knife
are your only options.
Here's a perfect example of why this is important.
Amanda's Mom was faced with a doctor telling her that
surgery was her only option for diverticulitis. Good thing
she has a daughter who was looking out for her:
I originally ordered your plan for my mother who was
facing surgery for diverticulitis, the surgeon telling her
it was her 'only option.'
My mother eats well, cooks all her own foods from scratch,
has no junk foods or ready meals, but there was obviously
something badly wrong.
After many years of trying unsuccessfully to take off
weight, I think she had become confused about the correct
way to eat and she had no knowledge of combining foods
After just one month on Great Taste No Pain, she has
postponed her surgery, has control of her bowels, has more
energy than she has had for years and has lost 7 lbs too!
I will keep you posted of her progress.
I have been following the plan myself, and whilst I did
not have any extreme stomach problems, I too feel 'cleaner'
on the inside and really love this new way of eating.
It just makes sense and I have been telling all my friends
about it. Still it is amazing how stubborn some people can
be about changing bad habits, there is still much work to
SB: Amanda, your Mom has a wonderful daughter. Even
though you don't currently have any stomach problems, you
are your mother's daughter...and with your genetics, you
would have a pretty fair chance of ending up with a colon
challenge someday, too. You have just decreased your risk
Wasn't that fantastic? Feeling better than she has in
years, now has control of her bowels and able to postpone
(and possibly cancel forever) risky and irreversible colon
Amanda makes another excellent point in her letter too.
Her Mom ate in a way that 99.9% of the population would
consider very healthy--cooking foods from scratch, no
processed junk or packaged meals--and she STILL got
That's hard-as-granite proof of the importance of
correctly combining foods.
You see, you can eat the VERY best food on the planet--all
organic, everything fresh as can be, cooking with very
little fat or oil, etc.
But if you eat foods together that require digestive
enzymes that are on opposite ends of the pH scale, you are
guaranteed to have badly digested food, overproduction of
acid in the stomach, pain and disease.
It might not happen right away, but the tide will roll in
And that's when you'll be faced with YOUR doctor telling
YOU that surgery or drugs are "your only options."
