Hi Mike and family,

I have been doing the programme for four weeks approx now and am really starting to feel better.

I have had several bouts of diverticulitis over maybe a couple of years and had a very scary one some three months back which convinced me I,ve got to change my life and do something about it, hence your programme.

We live in the country and grow nearly all our own fresh foods ,veges etc and I do a lot of hunting deer ,goats etc so was surprised to have this problem in the first place.

However ,understanding that it’s the way we eat that makes the difference has been amazing. I had always wondered what the problem was and its taken years to finally find out after all the tests etc.

You are so right ,doctors don’t cure anything just feed drugs to treat symptoms.

This is not completely easy ,but I am getting better at it and don’t have to look anything up anymore, your ongoing tips are much appreciated and very helpful.

Many thanks and kind regards

Thank you Rachel and your family. I carefully read all your most helpful emails. Your understanding and the information you share has allowed me to control my diet so that I have been able to avoid any flare ups or episodes of “Diver” for several months.

Keep up the good work

I am so grateful to Michael for this program. I think I am alive because of it.  At age 68, in 2014 I had a severe attack, diagnosed as diverticulitis.  I had so little confidence in allopathic treatments and prayed earnestly for REAL help.  In a casual conversation with someone I hardly knew, I learned about Michael's book.  If you learn and follow it, I promise it works!  I made the mistake of thinking I had it all down pat, but recently had a flare up and quickly reread the book and found my mistakes.  You cannot be lazy or nonchalant about this business.  If you hurt bad enough, (and you will I something doesn't change), you will be quick to make needed changes, and grateful to know what changes need to be made!  Someone suffered greatly to learn this program. I grieve for the multitudes who suffer and do not know where to turn.  Thank you Michael, and your family. I pray for your health and success and you move this work forward.

Thank you for this information and it is very helpful.  Stress has never been a problem for me.  Not that I can't be stressed but not common for my personality.  The description of the person who is prone to this illness is much like I am though.  I have always been a go-getter, get things done, kind of person.  My saving grace is being a very happy and positive person toward people and life.  Our family is our blessing and my husband has been my champion for 54 years.  We are blessed with five wonderful children and many grandchildren.  No one has the perfect life for sure but I am not complaining.  Big smile here.

I should mention that my dad suffered" terrible" stomach problems his whole life.  He did not get the help like I am with "Pain Free Foods". He was a very happy Irishmen in spite of his problem.  He got out of bed every morning singing.  I think I have his bad stomach genes. Thank you for all the help you have given me and is ongoing.  I am feeling well most of the time.  I think following your food program is the answer and I am giving it all of my effort.

MY name Valene. I was in the ER on Jan. 7  with acute Diverticulitis. On Jan. 8 we found your web site. We ordered the book and started on the diet of not mixing food types. I have always had problems with stomach pains; about 2 or 3 times a month. Since I started the pain free foods plan, I have not had one stomach pain. IT REALLY DOES WORK. Sometimes it is hard and confusing to me but I am really trying because it is working.  My brother asked, are you going to eat like this for the rest of your life? and I said YES. I don't have that bloating feeling any more and I have lost a little weight. Thank you for the book and the help. I don't want those pains ever again.

Hi,

I have been meaning to write and tell you how amazing I have found your way of eating.  I use to suffer an attack every three to four weeks, no matter how careful I was.  In desperation I was googling to see what I could eat and not have attacks when I came across your site.  Best move I ever made.  I have been attack free for 4months and feeling amazing.  I have to admit the hardest part was the alcohol but I did it and survived.  I have an extremely busy life whereby have to attend functions and dinners sometimes several times a week and have found the easiest way of eating then is vegetarian.  So simple.

I have recommended you to so many people, not sure how many can be bothered to make the effort but believe me they should it is a small effort for a huge difference.  I love the emails each week, great support.

Thank you.

Regards

Just letting you know that I fully appreciate this “diet”.  I’m beginning my 3rd week and have been pain free from the diverticulitis and the symptoms that go along with it.  I have been suffering for many years from this and can hardly believe the changes in such a short time.

I still have lots to learn, but so far things have been good.  Even my husband has noticed a difference in me.  It is hard to function well when you have this condition because you can be so uncomfortable most of the time.

I was taking Mira-lax every morning just to keep my system going.  Haven’t taken any since I started this diet and haven’t had any problem.  I have suffered from constipation most all my life and this is the first time I have done so well without some sort of medication. That alone is worth my staying on this program of eating.

Praying things stay this way……

Thanks for all the information you provide!

I have been dealing with digestive issues all my life.  Even as a child, I have vivid memories of pain, and distress.  As an adult, my life was affected daily, on the whims of my gut.  I have progressed from diagnoses of stomach ulcers, IBS, diverticulosis, bleeding ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, and abscesses.  My last year has been very challenging, and the most recent episode nearly took me out.  My recovery is still ongoing. 

These conditions are not every day topics of conversation, but it seems they are becoming more and more prevalent.  We all know someone who has some degree of digestive problems.  Causes may be due to genetics, stress, the American diet, and even personality type.  For those of us who suffer, we just want to get better and will try most anything to do so. 

While at the height of my most recent crisis, I discovered something wonderful and life changing.  Pain Free Foods, founded by Michael Hohlweg, is devoted to helping folks such as myself heal and regain our lives.  I purchased Mike’s books, joined their Facebook support group, and altered the way I eat.  I also have been enjoying the benefits of a special tea invented by Mike (Rachel’s Digestive Relief Tea, from Rachelstea.com.)  It has been the most soothing thing I have found.  The relief I have experienced with this program has been such a blessing.  I have been eating a “healthy” diet for years, but did not realize I was creating imbalances that were harmful to my digestive health.  The level of my understanding of how to eat for optimal digestive health has now changed dramatically.

The Pain Free Foods program is easy to follow, yet there are many important details to know.  While the information in this program is priceless, the one-time cost is only about the same as a co-pay with my gastroenterologist.  Certainly, a fraction of what I would have paid for an ambulance, the emergency room, inpatient hospital treatment and surgery.  I believe I avoided these things with my new eating plan.  I now have a lifetime of support from the Pain Free Foods Team.  This means everything to me.

I am not out of the woods yet.  My CT scan revealed some other troubling issues still to be dealt with; but at least I am no longer causing myself pain with food.  If you or anyone you care about has digestive issues, I encourage you to explore PainFreeFoods.com.  Mike and his daughter, Rachel also did some informative YouTube videos.  Check them out. 

I am forever grateful for Pain Free Foods.

I just have to tell everyone about Macro Greens and Miracle Reds. I bought them from Rachel's Tea website. Got them 6 days ago. I had been sooo tired, dealing with this diverticulitis/UC/abscess. Daily living activities wore me OUT! I tried a half scoop of both products, and within 30 minutes, I was up looking for a project. I ended up mowing the whole yard, watered and weeded the garden, and stood in the middle of the yard marveling that I still didn't feel like keeling over. Slept like a rock all night long. I took them before my YMCA swim exercise class, and folks commented that I looked more rested. The label says to mix with juice, but they taste great by themselves in very cold water. So glad Mike and the PFF Team recommends these products...otherwise, I would not have tried them. They are helping me be more active, and along with eating the PFF way, I have hope of getting my life back. \o/ !
