Dear Rachel,
I bought this program for my wife who has been bed ridden with stomach pain, nausea, unable to keep anything down and both constipated and bouts of diarrhea. The doctors have done extended tests and say there is nothing wrong with her. A good friend of ours at the coast bought your program and it has helped her, she said for her symptoms were the same and the doctors told her there was nothing wrong with her either. Since we have started your program she has started to lose the nausea and has cut the gravel amount in half. Today she finally said she felt hungry. She has lost 25 lbs. Living mostly on a diet of mashed food which she was for the most part able to keep down. We just received your hardcopy book yesterday and she has found the little card and the 9 to 1 ratio helps for planning what to eat. We thank you for this and will keep in touch.

I cant believe the difference I feel, its wonderful to not have blotted and stuffed feeling most of the time and never a hungry feeling. So much calmer feeling in the gut. Now I'm working on more water intake between meals, trying not to mix protein with starch that's been a big challenge, so much better in one weeks time.  Thank you so much for the encouragement.

Just wanted to let you know that I’ve followed all the device in my “Diverticulitis Pain Free Foods” book and it’s saved me.
I started with the combinations rule, made very basic combinations, avoided foods I suspected of causing problems and I’ve been pain free for months now. Giving up some foods I used to love wasn’t even tough, realizing they were going to ‘cost too much pain’.  I stuck to the rules and started out slow – eating just a few of the foods on the list – and gradually I added others, keeping to the combinations rule at all times, and I haven’t had any pain or trouble at all. My husband had to adopt my new style of eating and – BONUS! – he hasn’t had his occasional indigestion at all. Gone! He sees the sense of all this too and is thrilled that I’m feeling so much better. Your program makes so much sense and, best of all, it works! I just can’t thank you enough!

Hi Sonia, Rachel and Mike. It's Andrew here from Masterton New Zealand. I want to thank you all very much for the integrity of what you have done and are doing.

I ordered it on behalf of an elderly (but very energetic) friend who had been suffering for years with acid reflux etc and then suddenly landed up in hospital with acute intestinal pain and a diagnosis of Diverticulitis.

Hi Sonia!
Thank you, again, for writing to me. I have been feeling much better, have been following the dine out card for my meal choices, and have received my very first order from Rachel’s store just yesterday. I took Slippery Elm last night and again this morning, and had a cup of the wonderful tea with breakfast. I have cut back on the fresh fruit, but not stopped it altogether. I have really cut back on red meat, sticking with chicken and fish primarily. I am truly enjoying this program, and have dropped 12 pounds in the past 3-4 weeks without really trying to do that. My journey is a blessed one, especially with the Hohlweg clan backing me up…yay! Have a wonderful weekend…

Dear Sonia and Michael,
Having just received the digital package, I took a quick look at some of the tutorials then read through a few pages of the book. I actually purchased this package to help my mother who suffers from diverticulitis but I now realise that I may need it too since I suffer from bloating and gas at times. I have been vegetarian for most of my life but I dislike many foods on the normal vegetarian diet, eg. eggplant, asparagus, avocado, mushrooms etc. and I don't like eggs unless they are well hidden within the recipe. I tend to eat grain breads and pasta with tomato and parmesan cheese when I'm hungry. My diet is quite poor really because my food choices are limited, I eat junk food and I dislike cooking but I thank dairy products for my calcium intake. I struggle to find any diet that caters adequately to my specific needs and so I continue on my road to gradual obesity. Over the years my diet hasn't changed but my body has; thanks to childbirth, changing hormones and aging. My body no longer copes with the demands I place on it and my thyroid function is low which affects my metabolism; consequently, I have gradually gained weight and have transitioned from a slim, energetic young woman into an overweight, out of condition older woman. It makes me sad that I have neglected myself for so long but I am a positive person with a sunny outlook and I believe that today is the start of the rest of my life. I look forward to perusing through the recipe pages and absorbing knowledge from the tutorials in the hope that I may find a healthier direction for not only my life but that of my mother's as we do this journey together. Thank you for all the effort involved in producing this program and for sharing it with the world. Warmest regards!

The antibiotics further deteriorate your gut and the important bacterial biome. It's a vicious cycle. Healthy guts need a good balance of the friendly bacteria. You are on the right track. Best thing we can do is follow the program and stay away from antibiotics if at all possible. Try these natural remedies. They have worked for me. Good luck!

I can testify , Mike's book and the loving support from Sonia, and Rachel, will help you, After a year my CT scan shows no perforation on left side and no infection on the right side of my colon. I eat smart and added a product called RESTORE.COM to my regular routine. Just for extra insurance! I'm sure if I'd had the surgery last year, I wouldn't be writing this now. I had an abscess drained, high fever, severe diverticulitis pain. In hospital over a month. I'm 75 and suffered over 35 years. I owe my life to these folks. So glad I found them while I was sent home to recover for impending surgery with a bag! No surgery for this girl!! Have my life back now!!!

“Hello, I have been on the meal plan for 4 weeks now, and I have not felt this good in a long time. My first attack was in 2008 and I have not felt right since then. Amazing how great I feel. I thank you so much for your help and support. I do drink the ginger tea on a daily routine. I also take the slippery elm everyday. I feel great and people have said to me how well I look so I'm on the right track. One thing I'm trying to find is a 0 protein ice cream I have found 2 and 3 protein , I know low protein the best. Any suggestion on a brand it would be helpful.

“First of all a quick note to say that your diet has helped by husband beyond anything we had thought possible.  He has been a diagnosed diverticular sufferer for around 8 years now, with the disease getting progressively more difficult to manage.  Up to May this year he had to be admitted to hospital with extreme pain twice and was given intravenous antibiotics.  He was beginning the contemplate whether he should consider surgery - something he had always rejected. He has been on your diet for around 8 weeks now and is virtually pain free all the time now, this is probably the first time for months.”

“Thank you guys so much for the research you have done on this disease.  I am grateful that my diverticulosis is not as serious as some others, I have not had surgery or many visits to hospitals. I am a very health minded individual and have always watched my diet carefully.  The trigger catalyst foods was the problem, I was consuming a lot of yogurt in the past few months and developed a stomach bug which resulted in bad cramping on Sunday July 24th. The next morning I googled and found you guys online. I have read your material and have started the elimination of the catalyst foods and using proper combining. So far it’s working great.  I am heading out tomorrow on a trip to Toronto , Ontario , Canada for a Taoist Tai Chi workshop. That will be my biggest challenge to try to remember the proper combination and stay away from the wrong combination.  I am back in 10 days if there are any issues I will be in touch. Thank you again for being there for people like me, it is greatly appreciated.-

“Hello Hohlwegs, Rachel, and Thank you all! I've been following your recommendations for about a month now. I began as soon as I found your site. I first followed your news letters. Since the changes seemed quite helpful I ordered the book so I'd have all the details to refer too as quickly as possible. The food matches and 9/1 work just fine for me. I won't claim to be cured, but as long as I stay within the guidelines I feel "normal". I do have the tea at least once daily. The recommendation to use GSE was a big help in finding relief from gut discomfort. It had gotten so that I'd wake several times each night with pain below my ribs and my back. Now a good nights sleep is becoming the norm again. Thank you so much! God bless you all.

“Dear Rachel, I'm not sure if I can communicate with you directly here or wether this mail is an automated one? I'm going to give it a go anyway and do hope you get this reply.  Firstly, I must thank you for your incredible service. I never expected to get this level of assistance on buying your book! I started your two week restrictive diet immediately. I was so grateful, having had such an awful experience of 15 days in hospital diagnosed with diverticulitis and a tear in the colon. I have always been so healthy. So this was a huge shock. I have been treated with antibiotics and had a drain fitted a month ago to drain the infection. Surgeon felt I was healthy enough not to have the operation. I am grateful for this. I left hospital traumatized and rudderless. My surgeon said to eat all foods in moderation!! But I knew instinctively that diet had to have something to do with my condition. So began my internet search for help. And your webpage popped out at me and resonated with me from all the others when you linked acid reflux to this condition as I have had medication for this for 2 years!”

I still get a bit of bloating and have stopped eating salad for a while. I cannot thank you enough. You have become my anchor.

“Dear friends,

I have been on your program for about two weeks now. I am stunned! My pain has subsided by almost 90%. In just two weeks following your diet instructions I have found relief that I hadn’t been able to find for almost a year and a half. Even the 10% that I still struggled with was when I stepped too far too soon. But even then the pain level went from a normal 6-7 to a 2-3. What was crazy for me was how I thought eating cottage cheese and yogurt would help me when I was hurting. I was throwing gas on the fire, when all along I thought I was doing something good. Thank you for your research and for helping us find relief. I am overjoyed!! Blessings to you and your staff. Tim Howard”

Hi Sonia, I sent too soon, accidentally, so will

Carry on?, Your family & 'husbands' diet really a god send, followed your instructions completely got all the supplements you recommended and Rachel's tea, he took 3 wks off work to give it all our attention an the best start, he had diarhea constant for 10 months so we new new it would take more that a few weeks, you have probably heard all this before, it has took a few months now he's on no medication he's is in best health ever, your diet has changed the way we as a family eat, too us this diet has been nothing short of miraculous and thank you so much.

He is still taking all the supplements recommended every day an just about to order more of Rachel's tea but would like to ask, should he still be taking all supplements or should he be taking a break from certain ones, I just a bit worried as he has no symptoms at all of the colitis and

Wondered if certain ones not necessary unless he has s flare up, also he has suffered heartburn every single day for 5 yrs and dosnt get that now either.

Any advice at all is really appreciated.

I have been following the book for seven weeks now and have had only one attack in that time and was able to determine what caused it.

I haven't felt this good in years and have so much more energy again!

The doctors really don't know how to deal with the maintenance of diverticulitis only drugs to heal infections.

I don't know where I would have turned to get help in getting better.

It's been great also on Facebook to communicate with others dealing with the same issues.

Dear Rachel, Thank you for keeping in contact and wondering about my achievements. I started with the 4 days diet and have since been following the diet ( not to mix certain foods) and I am taking probiotics and curcumin. After over 2 weeks I am so much better; my tummy doesn't hurt, do not get cramps and flatulence, my brain is much brighter and I have more energy. Altogether, it is like magic to me and I am so glad that I did find your infos on the internet. I am very grateful and do hope that my health will carry on improving. Many thanks. Regards

Thank you for the valuable information you provide. I've had Crohn's for 40+ years and never saw anything as effective as your guidelines. I've always avoided the meds and they often laughed at my protocol that mostly worked without knowing why? You have explained it and proven it with 100% positive results. A life changer! Thank you.

Have some good news to share! I'm free of diverticulitis after over 4 months of natural healing, and being on our diet for over 90 days! I saw a gastro finally in Dec and he recommended a 10 day run of two kinds of antibiotics and I finished that last Sat. Had a colonoscopy yesterday. Brutal prep, just tortuous! But only one diverticula pocket found. One sizeable benign polyp removed that was an adenoma which is likely to develop into cancer - gone now. Told all my siblings since it can be passed genetically. Was told by doctor to have another colonoscopy in 5 yrs! Also wanted everyone to know that I was able to stop two attacks in Dec in their tracks by my partner giving me a Thumper (2 headed massager) on my feet. Think that stress plays a big part in the 8 full on attacks I've had. So I'm happy as can be right now on my little pink cloud. So grateful for your book and the priceless help it has given me! I'm going to stay on the diet, get back to a healthy weight again (need to gain a few lbs), keep slowly increasing my exercise - and get my life back again!❤"

Very scary at first! Get the digital program only 29$. It saved me! The take out guide will help take the emotional stress out of wondering what will hurt you and over thinking!Liquid diet for 3 days.....chicken broth, water, low acid juice no OJ! Then go to jello, mashed pot (use a touch of almond milk) butter is ok, oatmeal, boiled pot, white bread, saltine crackers, maybe eggs after 2 days of soft foods without problems ) Don't add fiber or worry about protein yet. Whenyou can eat for a week like this get yourself 2 products for sure....the slippery elm ( before meals to coat stomach) and the GSE-grapefruit seed extract -if/when you feel twinges of pain

Thank you for the updates always. I'm so happy that I have found you and I only found you threw searching on internet. I was using a book no more pain and it did help in beginning but was still having problems. Then I found you guys and it's getting better. as long as I follow the program I stray from time to time just cause I want something. But have discovered not worth the pain. And now that I'm using the products you have recommended it is even much better. I talk about this program to others who also are having problems to go check it out. So thanks again for being there if we need you."

Thanks to Pain Free Foods I am medication-free. Crohns is not going to get the best of me.

Thank you for the note Sonia. I have suffered with heartburn for years, and in recent years with Diverticulitis. I looked your book up trying to research how I can fix this problem after a particularly nasty flare up that required hospitalization. I began the diet on Monday. So far, so good. One really cool side effect so far is that I have not had to take an antacid for three days. Probably as far as I've gone without one in years. Anyway, thanks again!"

Can I share this report with my boss (also my friend) and encourage her to buy the book? She has diverticulitis.
I am still following your protocol and feel fantastic!! It's been soooo helpful to me ( if you remember, I don't have diverticulitis but a sensitive stomache and tend toward flare ups or occasional heart burn and acid reflux) but now I feel soooo much better.

Hi, I've had diverticulitis long term, no longer 'suffering' with it thanks to your diet. Thanks again.

On another note, I wanted to thank you and your family. I have been doing GREAT with my Diverticulitis and have been learning so much as my healing process continues. It's a total learning experience ones you learn to listen to you body and system. It's awesome and interesting how the body can heal on its own when you are given the "proper" tools to do so. My healing continues as my learning grows. Your Tea is a miracle tea!! I will never stop purchasing that from you. It's a true miracle tea and at the same time I know I'm supporting a true and honest family owned business! Thank you so much & sending you many blessing and great things to you and your family!"

Hi, I've had diverticulitis long term, no longer 'suffering' with it thanks to your diet. Thanks again. I've recently been diagnosed with a low calcium level in my blood, I've been having tests as I've developed peripheral-neural-myalgia, as numbness in my toes. I originally thought this might me a side effect of the Simvastatin which I used to take, but wondered if it could also be caused by an acid diet? Have you had any experience of this?
