This diverticulitis story shows why you must always second
guess and get second opinions whenever you are told that
you need surgery. Because the body has miraculous healing
abilities...if you'll just give it what it needs to heal.
All I'll say is John describes the horror of
diverticulitis VERY well...and he escaped going under the
knife, never to look back!
This is a very exciting case study for anyone who has
Well, I've been wanting to write you for quite some time
now, but it seems like everything I intend to do gets
Like so many others that have had their lives changed by
your advocacy, I feel like I'm another one of those success
stories, and discovering your site when I did is nothing
short of a miracle for me!
I had just had a very untimely attack on June 19th, 2009,
the day we were planning to take all four of our Oregon
grandchildren to the Portland zoo. I woke up that morning
with yet another dreaded attack of "dive," as I call it,
because diverticulitis certainly diverts your life and
knocks your plans right out.
Yes, my wife and I took the kids after all, but most of
the time I was doubled over with cramping pain, calling my
doctor in AZ to get all my horrid (but temporarily
effective) antibiotics transferred to a local pharmacy, and
limiting myself to a liquid diet. (That translated to ice
cream, and not much else at the zoo, much to the envy of my
It was just the latest in a series of attacks that had
been plaguing me every four to six weeks for the last six
months, meaning just when I was getting my life back to
normal, i.e., a healthy diet including lots of fresh
veggies and regular exercise, another one would hit.
I downloaded your 4-day free trial, saw how easy it is to
adhere to your eating plan, started eating as you
recommended; then ordered the rest of your books immediately.
When I told my doctor about your plan, he said it didn't
matter what I ate, it was too late for me, and referred me
to a surgeon who was going to excise a foot of my colon.
Not being one who wanted to have my gut cut, I continued
on your plan, enjoying your recipes and taking the wait and
see approach. Colon resection surgery was not something I
wanted to jump into.
After almost two months without an attack, I happily
cancelled the consult with the surgeon, and have never
looked back. The day before Father's Day, and our 46th
anniversary, I will be celebrating one full year without an
attack; in fact not even a murmur from down 'below!'
Sherry, I am, and forever will be, so grateful for the
professional and common sense advice you have given to me,
and the tens (or is hundreds?) of thousands of other
followers that have seen a merciful end to their grievous,
painful and unremitting digestive problems.
I have recommended your site to everyone I know who's
suffering any kind of digestive problem, and unfortunately,
these days, that's just about everybody.
I will be calling soon to talk to one of your wonderful
and caring associates about ordering a large supply of your
Super Shield probiotics. I hope to be letting you know how
they, too, are changing my life for the better.
SB: John, wow, you really touched my heart. I'm SO happy
you found Great Taste No Pain just in time before you lost
some of your precious colon. It's unfortunate that your
doctor has the typical mainstream medical attitude about
the diet-health connection--let's hope he sees the light
If you have diverticulitis (or other digestive challenge)
and still doubt whether your diet makes a difference, learn
a lesson from John's story.
He was "this close" to being minus a foot of his
colon...and is now going on a YEAR completely symptom-free
(with his whole colon intact!).
If it happened for him, it can happen for YOU too.
Stop listening to doctors who have no interest in learning
about nutrition and health. They will teach you only what
they know -- drugs and surgery. Is that really how you
want to live and die? A slave to pills that don't cure
anything, having parts of you that can heal beautifully cut
I have been researching health and nutrition for over 20
YEARS. I have seen countless stories like John's--people
who see profound changes in their health with often just
subtle changes in diet.
I'm also a living success story--I've been free of IBS for
18 years and I LOVE it.
In the manual "How To End Stomach Pain Forever, Even If
Your MD Says, 'No Way!'" I advise you about the few simple
principles you need to know and why they work so well for
everyone. (You know, considering John's doctor's attitude
toward GTNP, that manual was appropriately named, wasn't
There are also easy to follow guides showing you what to
pair with the foods you love, as well as a dining out card
that you can carry in your wallet so even restaurant meals
can be pain-free.
In just a few weeks John will be celebrating a YEAR with
no diverticulitis attacks (and keeping all of his colon).
PS: John is very wise to begin taking Super Shield
probiotic formula. Antibiotics (like those John took for
diverticulitis) upset the flora balance in your gut, which
hampers your digestion and obliterates your immune system.
Super Shield could turn that around for you FAST. Learn
