Of all the letters I receive every day, people suffering
from the horrors of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) make up
a HUGE percentage of them.
I feel their pain as they describe their cramps, bloating,
gas, constipation and diarrhea. I've been there myself.
I sense the embarrassment as they tell me how they had an
"attack" at work, in church, at the store or at some other
inopportune time. Been there, done that.
I understand the frustration when they tell me that the
pills their doctor gave them don't help...and sometimes
make it worse. Ditto.
But I don't hear from very often about the young IBS
sufferers--those who are too little to write.
You see, the standard western diet that most people in
"civilized" countries eat is acid-forming, improperly
combined mish-mash of food selections... and it affects
young people too--it's not an adults-only problem.
Here's a letter I received yesterday about an IBS sufferer
who is just 3 years old. A friend of his Mom let her
borrow her Great Taste No Pain books and...well, I'll let
you read the rest:
Early in September I shared your book with a former
teacher friend of mine.
She was having trouble potty training her "almost" 3 year
old. He had always suffered with some pretty bad bowel
movements and was recently diagnosed with IBS.
I told her about your book and even though she was
hesitant she agreed to "look" through it.
Well, at little Alex's 3 year old birthday party this past
week she couldn't wait to tell me about his "solid" poop!
She had almost quit giving him fruit because of the
diarrhea and for breakfast he often ate a bad combination
He now has correctly combined meals and during the day can
have his fruit.
Thanks to your book, this little fellow can now have a
SB: Gayle, thanks for writing. It's very rewarding to
help anyone at any age feel better, but there's something
very special about making a difference in the life of a
child. You made my day.
Little Alex saw at a very young age that acid-forming
foods and food combinations are extremely difficult for the
human body to digest.
The stomach struggles and over secretes acid in an attempt
to break down the food. This leads to destruction of many
of the nutrients in your foods and poor vitamin and mineral
absorption. It also means LOTS of gas, cramps and bloating
as your food sits there rotting, fermenting and putrefying.
Plus, when your foods aren't broken down like they need to
be, your wastes don't move through the intestinal tract
like they should. That causes diarrhea and/or
But when you instead eat foods that are alkaline in the
body, and in combinations that don't cause the digestive
juices to neutralize one another, it makes all the
difference in the world.
Your stomach can then digest your foods easily with a
minimal amount of acid. So your foods pass into the
intestines quickly--no more gas, pain and bloating from
Your wastes also move along like they're supposed to--and
that means normal, regular bowel movements. (Or in Alex's
case, "solid poops.")
If this all sounds great, but you don't know what to do,
don't worry. I can help.

balanced to prevent IBS symptoms and other digestive
problems. Super Shield probiotic formula's 13
