“I have been using Absorb Plus for maintaining weight more than anything. I’m also keeping a few jugs around for flare-ups. Also, I am a lucky Crohn’s patient. I manage my Crohn’s through managing my diet and lifestyle. I have not taken any medication for 5 years. Any ‘flare-ups’ (though rare) are managed by stopping solid food and drinking shakes. Absorb Plus did come in handy on my trip to the Ukraine though. The food over there was not great (lots of animal fatty foods), thus I drank Absorb Plus to keep the calories up and damaging Omega 6 fats down.”

“Hello! Just want to thank you very much again for such a great product! I have Crohn’s disease and was in the hospital on TPN (IV feeding) due to complications, severe weight loss, dehydration, malnutrition and malabsorbtion. My doctor ordered that I remain on TPN for possibly a month or, when ready, switch to an elemental diet only. Luckily, my boyfriend had brought a jar of Absorb Plus to the hospital and I was able to slowly start drinking it. The doctors, nurses and dietitions were all impressed with your product as well. Having Absorb Plus allowed me to discontinue TPN and leave the hospital! The flavors are quite delicious and filling as well. I slowly started gaining weight and strength by drinking 4 to 8 shakes a day as an exclusive elemental diet.

Thank you also, Jini, for your book “Listen To Your Gut”, it has been very helpful too. I’m slowly getting better and am optomistic that I’ll be healthy and strong again! Thank you so much again for Absorb Plus and everyone’s help and kindness! Peace and Happiness to all!”

“I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 13 years ago and have found in the past that the use of carbohydrate specific diet (which is based on an elemental diet), along with medication, has help put my Crohn’s into remission. The unfortunate part is the amount of labor involved in preparing diet conforming foods. Preparing food for the diet became a “stresser” in itself and reduces its usefulness.

What I like about your product is that it supports an elemental diet, which has been shown facilitate the remission of Crohn’s, is easy to use, has a pleasant taste, and most importantly my symptoms of Crohn’s appear to diminish when I am on the diet. Unfortunately, I have not been disciplined enough to stay strictly on it for more than a week at a time, but I found that even having shakes during the day and dinner at night is better that not being on the diet at all. Simply put, the more strictly I adhere to the diet, the better I feel. I feel pretty strongly that your product has and can help maintain

In fact, I mentioned your product and the elemental diet to my very critical gastroenterologist and he told me that in certain countries an elemental diet is used to treat Crohn’s and he would be interested in more information. (no, I will not give you his name, but I would pass on to him any literature that is scientific in nature) I was very surprised at this since he has NEVER made such an offer in any other of our discussions.”

“I have crohn’s disease and decided to try your product after reading Listen to Your Gut by Jini Patel Thompson. I tried the elemental diet (shakes only for 6 weeks). I found the shakes to taste fantastic compared to other products I have tried! Unfortunately, I didn’t have the results I had hoped for while I did notice some improvement in my condition I didn’t go into remission. I also came off all of my prescription medications at the time I started the elemental diet which may have influenced the outcome. I do recommend the Absorb Plus shakes for anyone who would like to give their bowel a chance to rest but doesn’t want to compromise taste! I would be willing to try the diet again in the future!”

“I suffer with Ulcerative Colitis and due to the nature of the disease, I was not able to do my daily activities. It used to be very tough going to the office and working effectively. I learned about Absorb Plus from Jini Patel’s book and started taking 2 Absorb Plus shakes daily. Guess what: Now I feel fresh and have gained some of the weight I lost – Thanks to Absorb Plus. It is little bit pricy but worth the results.”

M.R., Pennsylvania, USA

“I have had a long history of intestinal problems. I’ve been to at least 3 different GI specialists and participated briefly in Dr. Weil’s program at the University of Arizona in 2001. About 10 years ago, my IBS progessed to ulcerative colitis and continued to progress to an array of issues including fissures, leaky gut, proctitis, etc. It appears that my condition is genetic and I’m following in the footsteps of my grandmother. Identical location of problem and symptoms in the large intestine. Unfortunately hers progressed to cancer in the infected area of the colon and had to removed. After regular colonoscopies and drug treatments, GIs have not found a resolution for my ongoing and worsening problems.

Dr. Weil’s program required eliminating wheat, diary, eggs and meat for at least three weeks before reintroducing foods and journaling results. After three weeks, I found that this did not bring me relief and I was still experiencing problems. It seemed as though all solid food disagreed with me.

After returning to PA from Tucson recently, I was ready to try something else. Through an online discussion group, I was excited to learn of Jini’s books (wonderful source of experience, expertise and inspiration) and Absorb Plus. I was especially encouraged when I tried this product and was able to tolerate the chocolate. It was agreeable to my system and taste-buds.

Currently, I only drink two shakes, take extra vitamin supplements, and eat one meal or two small meals of fish, rice, non-irritating foods daily. My stress is that I can’t seem to give up chewing at least one meal a day. The above is a compromise between body/mind. The largest factor is cost. I am unable to afford a complete liquid diet of 4-5 shakes/day at this time and have to budget very carefully. With these factors, I know that this is probably the reason that I am not experiencing its full effect. However, I am hoping that this slow introduction will give my digestive system a rest and allow me to heal even if it takes longer.

Any-rate, I can say that I feel great after drinking the shakes and they totally agree with me. I don’t think that I’ll ever want to go back to solid food for breakfast again as nothing has been comparable to start the day. And, a shake is perfect for a meal before bed. I’m most grateful in knowing that I have a product that I can use for flare-ups. I am still awaiting more improved results and would be happy to provide a future testimonial and let you know if my condition has improved.

Lastly, it is wonderful to know that a reliable, healthy product for your wellness exists that you’re able to fall back on in times of intestinal woes. I only wish that the cost factor was not a major issue and that I could find it locally verses using only mail order. I’ve had difficulty receiving past supplies in a timely fashion and it is difficult when you depend on it so much and at the same time need to budget very carefully.”

“I received my order of 10 jars of Absorb Plus just after Christmas. My son has been having three shakes each day since then – he has Crohn’s disease and was quite poorly having lost over 13 pounds very quickly – it had taken months to regain just about half of that. He is also eating three meals a day (as suggested in Listen to your Gut). He is still taking steroids. We don’t have scales at home so he won’t be weighed until next week when he sees his gastroenterologist, but he now has energy, is able to get up easily for school (as easily as any other 17 year old!) and has started a gentle program of weight training.”

G.M., Alberta, Canada

“I have been using Absorb Plus for the last month as recommended in Jini Patel’s book as a part of the Elemental Diet.

I must say the taste & variety provided are fantastic! I was somewhat hesitant since there are only 3 flavors available, but have realized there is quite a bit of variety available especially when experimenting with mixing the flavors and I urge others to do the same!

The shakes (in addition with flax) have been very filling and I have had no cravings! Which was quite surprising since I normally have a voracious appetite. But most importantly my chocolate cravings were satisfied nicely by the Chocolate Royale.

Even my husband who is not on the Elemental Diet has been having shakes as they provide an excellent source of Energy. I haven’t had to change my lifestyle at all, I still have the same amount of energy and am able to go to the gym three times a week, work and take night classes. If anything I think the Absorb Plus shakes have made life easier since there was no need to worry about planning meals, shopping or cooking! And with my busy schedule they provided all the nutrition and calories and energy I need. I would most definitely recommend Absorb Plus to anyone out there who is considering following the elemental diet or just to keep on hand for their daily dose of vitamins! And as I said they’re great as a meal replacement when you’re on the go.

I will certainly continue using Absorb Plus even when I’m done the elemental diet for nutrition!! Thank you for a great product!”

L.P., New York, USA

“Hello, I am writing to inform that the Absorb Plus shakes have been working marvelously for me. I have chron’s disease and there were days that I could not eat and they helped me get all the nutrients I needed. Also they have been enjoyable to drink, I even crave them sometimes. My favorite way to drink it is when I prepare the vanilla in a blender with ice and a banana. It comes out foamy and thick. I like drinking it slowly with a spoon or a straw.

I have also found that combining flavors is a good way to change the taste. My favorite is vanilla but I have found the bitter taste of the chocolate refreshing as well. The mixed berry is my least favorite but have found it to be interesting with the vanilla. Thank you for your help and nutrients.”

D.G., Maryland, USA

“I just want to let you know that I love the Absorb Plus Shakes, and so does my husband. He was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis last year and I recently put him on the Remission Diet, since every bite of food he was eating was making him sick. I have to tell you he loves the taste of mixed berry (of course!) the chocolate I think he is very sensitive with it, but he loves the mixed berry the most. I will be ordering 6 more later this afternoon, overnight delivery, as I don’t want him to run-out, and on Friday I will place another order.”

L.M., Michigan, USA

“I cannot say enough about Absorb Plus. I am 26 yrs old with crohn’s disease and as a last resort before going on steroids again I tried the shakes. They did take about 4 days to work because at the beginning I had nausea among other symptoms which could of been a detox process or just because I was very ill when I started to take them. By the 7th day I could not believe the amount of energy I had and in general how good I was feeling. It was the best I have felt in months! I think these shakes are amazing and I really crave drinking them – and the chocolate flavor taste GREAT! I’m so glad I know I can use this product when things get really bad. Although I plan to keep using it as a supplement in the morning 3-5 times a week once I am back up to my normal food intake. It is truly a great product. I will be placing my next order tonight or tomorrow, as mentioned my flavor of choice is the chocolate one.”

“I keep Absorb Plus in my home for my 16-year-old daughter who has Crohn’s disease. We are treating her complete naturally and this was a wonderful alternative to use for bowel rest when she is not quite feeling right. I hate the idea of giving her a supplement drink with chemicals and preservatives in it.

The interesting thing is that I ended up needing it desperately and was so thankful I had 2 complimentary servings that I received from reading Jini-Patel Thompson’s book. This past January I got a very bad bronchial virus. I was having cough spasms so severely that I injured my ribs. I reluctantly decided to try a course of antibiotics because I was so miserable. Four hours after taking the antibiotics, I was on the floor sweating and cramping. I thought I was going to die. I had a total bacteria kill-off and I became toxic. It is called antibiotic induced colitis. I started having diarrhea and then I began to pour out blood from my intestines. This went on for days.

I chose not to go to the emergency room because I knew exactly what had happened and I knew that I would be scoped and put on major medications that would ultimately just prolong the healing. I have lived this nightmare with my daughter. I lost 10 pounds in one week. My body needed nutrition but my intestines were very damaged and so I did not want to use solid food.

I began to use the vitamin supplements that my daughter takes in her daily regimen and I used Absorb Plus for my nutritional needs. It was so satisfying and tasted awesome. I slowly began to heal and I thank God that I can say that I am totally healed now from that nightmare. I realize that without the ability to nourish myself, I could have easily succumbed to even more serious health problems as a result of the antibiotic reaction. I love this product and I will always have some in my cupboard for my daughter when she needs it and also for other health emergencies. Thank you!”

N.B., Alberta, Canada

As I’m pregnant, I’ve been taking the product with some food (fresh juices, broth, homemade applesauce, etc). Even still, I have noticed a huge change in my energy level and general well being. After a pregnancy filled with concern about hemoglobin and nutrition levels, everything is back to normal and my inflammatory markers have come down as well with only two weeks on the product and not even doing the actual full remission diet. I didn’t tolerate the fruit flavoured one, which didn’t surprise me too much, but the unsweetened vanilla has been great! I put one scoop of chocolate just to make it taste better and as long as I leave it one scoop, it seems to be fine.

So looking forward to doing the entire diet after the baby comes in November and hopefully avoiding my surgery! We’ll see…

Thanks again.

Your abosorb plus is an incredible driving fuel and has me going to the gym several times a week once again!

My wife’s condition has improved greatly over the past months and I no longer require the shipments as before. I will probably order again from time-to-time. I will detour the details here but your Products and Assistance have been and are highly valued.

Awesome stuff

my son is doing so well on it. Been 2 weeks.

he’s never been able to tolerate things hyper sensitivity

thanks for changing lives

Absorb Plus has been a literal life saver for my daughter as she suffers through the complications in her gut from chronic Lyme Disease. We are so happy that a friend of ours found your product!

R.D., Oregon, USA

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how well the Absorb Plus is working for my son. He is 8 years old, and has had ulcerative colitis since he was born. e found Absorb Plus online, and he has now been on it exclusively for 7 weeks. We just got his calprotectin test back, which tests intestinal inflammation, and in the last 7 weeks it has gone from 664 (normal is under 150) to 82! We can’t even believe it. He looks and feels better than he ever has in his life, and it has given him his health and life back. We are not sure what we will do from here on out with introducing foods back in, but we are sure we will be keeping him on the Absorb Plus as his main nutrition for now. Our whole family is very grateful for this product, we don’t know what we would do for him without it.

C.C., USA

The products have worked great and I’m in remission now.

My mother is much improved from her month-long drug resistant diverticulitis flare-up. The Absorb Plus and raw milk and chicken broth seems to have made a huge difference. We are transitioning to more solid foods but need to manage the process wisely.

S.C., Florida, USA

I used Absorb Plus for 6 weeks, ate nothing but the shakes and broths for 4 and then eased back for 2…. I am happy to say that I seem to be totally healed. I went from a life of being afraid to eat anything for fear of horrific gas, bloating and uncontrollable running to the bathroom; everything went right through me, so I never ate and always was undernourished. Now I can eat whatever I want, whenever I want!! Also, my menstrual cycle became normal again! After the Drs. poked and prodded and tested and couldn’t figure that one out either!

Thank you!

Now I just have to watch what I eat so I don’t get fat!!

A big change from how things used to be!!

B.W., Canada
The unsweetened version of Absorb Plus has been a life saver (literally). I live with the hope that you will continue to produce and distribute it.

G.G., USA

It’s only been since starting your Elemental Diet with the Absorb Plus that the intestinal pain and ICV pain has nearly disappeared. When I cheat, it lets me know it’s still there so I’m planning on staying on the diet and with full intention and belief, heal completely. 4 scoops of the flavored Absorb Plus caused my heart to race/palpitate. I found 2-3 scoops of the unflavored and 1 flavored doesn’t cause the symptoms. Perhaps others who have had the experiences could benefit from this.

G.C., USA

Thank you for your message, your book and Absorb Plus!!
I feel so grateful to have come across it.

My six year old has been diagnosed with Crohns almost three years ago and though she is not a severe case, the meds and a special diet didnt do it for her. She did an EEN with Absob Plus and your regimen this summer for 3 months. It was hard, me and my husband did it with her and it helped her to get rid of the meds (no 4 months without) and also my husband to feel better. I was the only one who had trouble with my kidneys and lost a huge amount of hair during the course.

However, all uncomfort was worth getting her of meds and learn about all the Supplements which she still gets and who will hopefully continue to Support her journey to health 🙂

Thank you so much for this!
I wish everyone would know about this possibility and having the Choice of Healing yourself!!

M.B., USA

I made it work and I’m glad. I could of kept my 2nd tub but I also need the book. I’ve healed my self numerous of times in the past but I don’t have all the answers. I found u guys years ago actually. No more sleeping on LTYG. I did the research and realized that 1% of milk isn’t bad at all compared to 100%. Besides I have a sensitivity, not an allergy. My diarrhea went away long before I started Absorb Plus, but my intestinal lining is still healing and I’m still adding on needed pounds I lost, so I know it’s beneficial.

I take a multi digestive enzyme that supports dairy digestion also right before the shake. I blend 3 scoops of Unsweetened with distilled or purified water, a little flax oil (my fat tolerance is going up) and frozen bananas. So shocked that it taste great without almond milk. I usually can never have an only water shake. The more I drink, the more my body tolerates it. Looks like I’ll be ordering more soon. I was scared at first. I’m gluten free and dairy free and it has been forever since I’ve had whey protein. I usually buy vegan proteins. Even more energy and weight is going up faster than before. Happy and surprised that I’m drinking whey again. The price actually matches the quality. They don’t make these around and I never saw anything like it.

My Husband has been using absorb plus for about 4 to 5 years now. He has crohns and during a flare up, he uses this drink to help him put on weight. We usually have a tub or 2 at home for standby. Sometimes, he will take it after his gym exercise to pump up his protein intake. We like to take one scope of chocolate and 3 scoops of unsweetened vanilla. Last year, I was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer and went through an intense chemotherapy session. During the treatment, my weight went own to merely 70 pounds as I couldn’t eat or swallow much and the hospital gave me enure and prosure which I think it’s too sweet. My husband then suggested absorb plus. I started taking about 2 drinks a day. I have very bad nausea but I force my self to take it anyway. The absorb plus gave me the energy that I desperately needed. Later on, to pump up the calories, I add avocado/banana and oil and blend it together. I just want to say thank you.

S.L., USA

I just completed week three. My fears of the shakes not tasting good or the shakes making me sick before getting better have been put to rest; I am full and satisfied.

The Chocolate tastes great and I like to change it up a bit so I mix 1/2 Choc. and 1/2 Berry. It’s really hot this summer so I have been mixing the shake with water like normal and then blending again with 1 cup ice cubes. This makes a nice cool, healthy drink.

If you want to help your body heal like I do, this is worth a try. I have fibromyalgia, which is a Central Nervous System disorder; my nerve pain was better on week two. I also have the autoimmune disorder hashimotos and lesions on my brain. I am thrilled that my Dr prescribed this for me to help heal my gut. Thank you for making such a wonderful and easy product; I wish I wouldn’t have procrastinated so long.

C.B., USA
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate having a formula like Absorb Plus. I had a stomach tube put in 6 months ago and, although I can eat a bit and hope to return to “regular” eating, in the meantime the Absorb Plus has kept me alive. I could not tolerate some of the commercial formulas and am so grateful to be able to find one without sugar/corn syrup ( I use the sugar free vanilla), where casein and lactose are not present, where I can add my own oil, where even the added vitamins are higher quality, such as methylcobalamin for B-12, etc. Thank you for producing this formula!

M.H., USA

I have to say that while I was so sick last spring and couldn’t eat hardly anything, I found AbsorbPlus and Jini’s organic bone broth recipe. That nourished me and started me healing. I found I craved the shakes and broth because they were so good for me. I got back to a normal diet then had another bout over the summer. The bladder fistula had to get repaired via surgery. I recommend Jini to everyone I meet with diverticulitis/colon issues.

S.S., Canada

Thank you. I have been using the unsweetened vanilla for almost a year and it has saved me from needing a feeding tube; has allowed me to add some much needed weight and best of all I am now able to have enough energy to go back to work. Thank you for giving me my life back

P.R., USA

All of of books I have bought from you have been great the Ebooks included. The information in your books is very easy to understand and the books are very easy to use on a day to day basis. I use my hard copy of listen to your gut every day. I would give your books and recommended supplements that you sell through your store online the highest recommendation possible.

Going on the elemental diet with the Absorb Plus shakes has saved me from surgery (at the Mayo Clinic), twice in the last 6 months. If I could afford to do it I would eat nothing but your shakes and supplements 100% of the time.

Keep up the great work!

G.J., USA

I love your Absorb Plus. I have been drinking unsweetened vanilla for about 3 months now for breakfast and lunch and eating a nutritious dinner. I have also been taking meds for sibo on and off during this time. I haven’t been able to gain weight for 1&1/2 yrs. Since beginning this regimen , I have gained 2.5 lbs which I am thrilled about!!!

Thank you , Jini, for your product!!

A.P., USA

Thank you for your wonderful and detailed info for healing intestinal strictures. I have all the info I need and thanks for making available the products to complete my healing. I am presently being greatly helped using the Absorb plus shakes. I saw and felt healing within days using it just once a day! The Best to you!

J.S., USA

I was in a bad way after the last attack, so I started with Jini’s Absorb plus and stayed on that for 10 days. The taste was great, and I managed to go without solids for 10 days in total. Such relief. Bloating dissipated and the weight loss helped me get my mobility back in check. I also used the colonic massage technique, very helpful. I have yet to follow the rest of the program, for now I am just eating softer foods and chewing well, but I do plan on going back to take a look at the pdf. Thank you so much for this kind reminder to do so!

Sincerely, and with much gratitude to yourself and Jini, for sharing such great information with the world.:)

S.A., USA

My 14 year old son is loving Absorb plus (unsweetened vanilla) – he has previously tried modulen (tasted awful, so he had to tube feed) boost (unhealthy, too sweet, tastes awful) and ensure (couldn’t do it). Finding absorb plus has been a real life savior. He has NO problem drinking five shakes a day. No nausea, no after taste. NO PROBLEM! This is an amazing product! VERY MUCH WORTH THE FINANCIAL INVESTMENT- IT IS IN FACT EXPENSIVE, BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR WITH ABSORB PLUS. THANK YOU.

G.T., USA

AbsorbPlus has been tremendously helpful to me. I’ve been recovering from Crohn’s Disease for 16 years now. I came across AbsorbPlus in 2013 (I think). It has helped me through many flares. Although I haven’t followed Jini’s recommendations exactly, I have explored much of what she suggests. The biggest piece for me is that she’s done it. She’s recovered her health. That, on its own, has been a huge support for me (along with the knowledge that there are at least 10 others around (I discovered this through friends and through the on-line “Heal your Crohn’s Summit” in which Jini participated)). I know it can be done. It’s just been a question of figuring out what works for me (and surviving the rough ride!). My blood work is now almost normal. If this trend continues (which is likely), I will soon break a 16 year record (that’s how long I’ve been doing monthly blood tests)! Please thank her for her book, her AbsorbPlus, her website, and for being so public that it is possible to heal from this illness. Blessings to you all.

I suffer IBS and divertulosis and has been in distress for over a month. With using just one jug of Absorb Plus, my tummy feels so much better from the IBS. I’m still working on the left side where the divertulosis is, but I have ordered my second jug. I am drinking the chocolate royalle and it tastes good. Thank you!

Hi, I just thought I’d tell you that my son has been on Absorb Plus since the time I previously messaged you and we are seeing good results. Very happy as things have been quite bad. Thank you!

T.H. Colorado, USA

A few weeks ago I was going through a rough spot not feeling good. I started taking Absorb Plus for breakfast and lunch, then solids for dinner. Along with Mucosaheal three times a day, two twice and three before bed. I have also been on the oregano protocol for about two months. Now I am now starting to feel really good during the days. I truly believe I am on the right path. Thank you for the life saving information. God bless you.

Hi Jini and the wonderful Absorb Plus team, Thank you for the high quality product you offer; it is truly amazing. My son and I were completely satisfied with your product, and it even impressed my son’s nutritionist in how perfectly it worked for him (he has chemical sensitivities and many food issues). My son used all of the Absorb Plus that we ordered, and it definitely helped him. He continued to have one meal per day while using the shakes. I am unable to afford this product, however, and am planning to ask his rheumatologist if there is any chance of the Absorb Plus being covered by his insurance. We will see the rheumatologist again mid-February. My son has a diagnosis of Ankylosing Spondylitis since August of 2016, plus he has a cognitive disability and scoliosis. He doesn’t have a diagnosis of Crohn’s, but when he started coming off of the Prednisone that the rheumatologist put him on back in August, he developed Crohn’s symptoms. I thought he had a virus at first, and treated him naturally (therapeutic enzymes, essential oils, etc.). He continued to get worse as time went on, and I found myself reading about Crohn’s. Having studied natural medicine on my own, I realized that an elemental diet would help him, whatever his problem was, and then was elated to find your product. Actually, I tried it myself and loved it, because it was the first time I could remember eating and feeling only satisfied, and not like the food was doing something to me. I have recommended your product to many people already, and they’re all devouring the information I give them. I even gave away most of the empty containers to my friends. This reminds me, I was wondering if you have something like tri-fold brochures that I can give to people. I live in northern Wisconsin. There is a natural spring just outside of town that many, many people go to for water. It’s free, and it’s spring water. The spring, however, is not always safe to drink from, and is even regularly closed by the city. I feel that this spring is part of the reason for the higher-than-average incidences of Celiac, Crohn’s, and other intestinal conditions in this area. When we moved here we were told you have to “get used to the water.” To me, that means “don’t drink it.” Anyway, there are a lot of people here that need help, and if you have brochures, I could easily give away a few hundred. Thank you so much for the excellent customer service, and the special gifts you sent with our December orders. They’re very high quality. I shared a few of them with the owner of a local large natural store in town, and discovered that they already carry your shampoo. Her sister-in-law loves the hand lotion, and uses it every day now.

This is my second review. This product is way superior to other nutritional support/weight gain products. Aside from not being able to assimilate the other products on the market (Ensure, Boost, etc), I seriously wouldn’t feed them to my dog. Read the ingredients. As for taste, it’s all opinion. I don’t like sweet so I simply can’t drink other than the unsweetened vanilla. That’s plenty sweet as it is. I’m very glad to see the switch from fructose in your new flavor, ‘Simply Chocolate’. I don’t like the new packaging at all. Small mouth and takes up more room in my cabinet.

I have been using Absorb Plus for five weeks now with other supplements. I have been feeling great. I have been taking it for breakfast and lunch and then eating a solid for dinner. It seems to be working well for me.

My Crohn’s Colitis strictures naturally break up and release after about 1.5 weeks on a strict Absorb Plus enteric diet. My flareup frequency is now down to once per year after about 4 years of following the protocol on every flare without fail, and they are diminishing in severity as well.

Counting my previous orders from the shopping cart here on your store, I see 10 times out of 10 orders I have put my (previously completely disabling) version of complex fistulizing Crohns Colitis in remission using only Absorb Plus, additional oils for calories, and adding bone broth as the flare begins to subside. 7 tubs in 2 weeks does it every time now.

Jini I have never given you a formal testimonial on this but THANK YOU from the bottom of my hearts for this incredible product that has helped me avoid toxic biologic drugs for almost 5 years now.

D.M., Indiana, USA

I’ve been drinking absorb plus for about 4 weeks now because I had a bowel obstruction, and when I began eating foods again right when I got out of the hospital I was very sensitive, so I began drinking Absorb plus and Ive been very pleased. It has given me the energy that I’ve needed. I feel a lot better now these last to weeks that Ive been taking them and not on medication. The first two weeks I was constipated but I believe it was because of the medication(prednisone) that I was taking because now Im going regular and Im not on the medication. I did feel a little bloated specially when I would drink 6 or 7 shakes a day and did burp a quit a bit. On the other hand I could feel that within 20-30 mins I would have more energy, I have been able to take care of my three children 8,7 and 3 on this liquid diet not sure that I would have done so well without it. When I was in the hospital for 3 days I lost 10 lbs. so I was 105 lbs and Im currently 114 lbs, 4 weeks after. I have a stricture where my small and large intestine connect and am looking into doing your stricture healing protocol. Still in the process of learning and reading about it so I can begin on it. Thanks for what you do, I do have faith in these protocols and that it can help in the healing process of the body even though my doctor thinks that Im not taking things seriously and I feel this is when Im more than ever taking my health seriously.

It was a big deal going on an elemental diet. And I did a lot of reading and actually felt overwhelmed with just how to do it. The kit was a blessing. It provided the foundation for me to get the shakes done correct and gave me confidence to then incorporate the other supplements like the Oil of Oregano and the Probiotics and Aloe. A great idea and a true gift for those that need healing in a difficult time when even thinking can be a challenge when your gut is so out of tune. Thank you!!!

First of all, I would like to thank Dane Johnson for the video from YouTube:

That’s how I found out of Absorb Plus.

I have been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 4 months ago I haven’t been feeling good for 3 years.

I had been feeling very weak.

Since I started using Absorb Plus a month ago I noticed feeling a bit stronger and not as sensitive to certain foods.

Here is how I make my shake first in the morning before going to work and if I don’t feel very good coming home from work I would have another shake for supper.

I would take a bit more than a cup of water in the mixer and 3 to 4 scoops of Absorb Plus. Sometimes I would mix it with different flavors. I would also take one capsule of magnesium. I would just open them and pour in the powder.

And I would take grounded slippery elm bark.

And maca root and glutamine all in powder half a teaspoon of each.

And I would also take a teaspoon of odo’s oil.

And I would also take 1 frozen banana that has to be very ripe before freezing it.

And would also take some blueberries as well put It all in the mixer and mix it. That is my breakfast every morning and it taste very very good.

I would also take five drops of oregano oil first thing in the morning.

And before going to bed I would take Natren probiotics, one capsule of all three of them.

I rarely take the time to give a feedback on anything but I felt this was important because I learnt all this from other reviews.

After the Absorb Plus arrived and I made myself a shake then fell asleep. I woke up thinking it was the next day time to get up and start my day when I looked at the clock and it was only 12:13 AM, a little just after midnight. I slept like a baby, woke feeling so refreshed and feel energy. Also, I do not feel brain fog that I felt the last few days after my recent IBS flare up.

Thank you for the added links and information you have given me. I am just soaking it all up. There is so much for me to learn.

Hello Jini! I recently used the elemental kit diet, a month ago i came down with a bad case of diverticulitis, very painful and swollen, even my bladder was in pain, I could hardly walk. I now believe the flair up was caused by a steroid epidural I had 2 weeks prior, due to low back pain, car accident related. I had not had a flair up this bad and none at all in 10 years. The antibiotic were brutal on my gut too. As soon as I came home I researched and found you on YouTube. I follow the bone broth for 7 days, as I could not eat at all, I lost 10 lbs. in the first 4 days… and when inflammation was down, I started the elemental kit for a week. The results were amazing: I started to have energy, my skin cleared, I have brown spots on face for years, my wrinkles even went away! my hair was thinning for year and it also got better. I’ve had joint pain for years, my body does not detox well…that also was relieved! Now I am taking the Absorb Plus and doing 3 shakes a day, and at night I am eating very carefully, started slow with cooked carrots, etc., my digestion is very slow and does not move every day… I understand how dangerous is to be constipated, I am drinking plenty of water and Calm, calcium citrate every night with potassium but still very sluggish. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your wisdom, I will now continue the Absorb Plus routine to lose the 30 lbs. that i need to, I’m 14 lbs. down now in 4 weeks. Can’t thank you enough!!

Despite a healthy diet and great digestion all my life, I suddenly developed chronic constipation the same week as my first herpes outbreak. Being married and middle aged, I didn’t even know I had herpes, but 67% of people under 50 do, so I figure others may want to know it can be a cause of dead colonic nerves and chronic constipation.. Unfortunately, my petite body can’t handle even one week of painful bowel movements. I quickly developed hemorrhoids, fissures and possibly a fistula that caused a bacterial infection in the vagina. White antibacterial cream I put up there was exiting through my bowel movements – what?

So this is how Absorb Plus is helping: Desperate to soften the bowel movements when nothing would work, I started taking 3 shakes a day, plus a careful diet. At first it didn’t work, so I had to use Smooth Move Tea to empty my bowels first (Makes me feel a bit sick, but it works). After that, the shakes worked like a charm, sometimes just two a day. I eat normal food as well, but never in large quantities, and I focus on fruits & veggies, never too much meat, bread or junk food. Soup & salad is good, Ezekiel bread, Raisin Bran or oatmeal for grains. Drinking too much never works, but drinking small quantities often is important, especially when I wake up at night (to keep things moving for the morning bowel movement). I mainly drink spring water, Emergen-C, Prune Juice, herbal tea, and a homemade electrolyte drink made with lemon juice or raw vinegar.

I’m healing! The soft bowel movements are helping, and I also make homemade suppositories to use twice a day, using Jini’s recipe and large party straws. I also highly recommend the “Healing Enema” every night (I do a mini one using a 7 0z enema bulb). I think this is key for me, especially as I use fewer shakes. Not only does it help with healing the colon, it helps ensure a soft bowel movement every morning. Waking early for a morning walk also help to get things moving.

The bacterial infection in the vagina has not returned, the swelling is gone, but still a little pain. To continue the healing on that side, it feels best if I rub the area several times a day with a coconut oil mixed with a little oregano oil or “fissure heal” essential oil. I just carry a small container in my purse to use whenever I’m in the bathroom.

Thank you for the LTYG website! Don’t know what I would have done without it, as all the advice from the doctor made me worse.

J.W., Alabama, USA

I think probiotics has been the key to my remission, well one key anyway. I’ve been taking Natren and lots and lots of honey.

I’ve been drinking a lot of tea (an excuse to drink honey). My stool is solid for the first time in 2 years!!! I’ve got just a slight bleed, but no more fistula!!

I just want to say that my wife and I have recently done a great deal of biblical reconciliation (taking the score of who hurt whom back to a score of 0-0.

I believe this has made the biggest difference. I implore you to consider how to make forgiveness a part of what you consider for Crohn’s patients.

I’m enjoying the first remission in two years!!! I’m up from 148 to 163 lbs!!! thank you for all of your products especially absorb plus and mucosoheal, the combination of which has led me to a more responsible lifestyle.

Just over a year ago, I was experiencing bloody bowel movements. I struggled with chronic diarrhea and gas. I went to a GI doctor who immediately put me on heavy sulfur drugs and enemas. He said my insides were “angry” and inflamed. I did as I was prescribed for 3 weeks and the symptoms went away. However, within a week of finishing the medication, the symptoms returned. I am not a believer in masking symptoms. I always want to go to the root of the problem.

I starting researching on line and, thank God, I found the LTYG website. I bought Jini’s books and everything she said made sense and resonated with me. I immediately started on the Absorb Plus shakes and the aloe vera/mucosaheal/oregano oil protocol.

My body responded immediately. Within a couple of weeks my bowel movements had changed for the better, there was no blood present and I began feeling great. I was VERY rigorous and followed her suggestions religiously. I did not want to risk colon cancer or something similar.

Once I had been on the protocol for 2 – 3 weeks, I began introducing foods. I eliminated ALL gluten, sugar, coffee and most dairy. Once I began drinking the shakes, my desire for coffee disappeared. I didn’t even experience the caffeine withdrawal headaches when I stopped drinking coffee. Absorb Plus was, and still is, a miracle for me.

Today, over a year later, I start my day with a shake. I have continued on my diet and I have had no food allergy symptoms. I am certain that what I was eating was completely affecting my insides, in a horrible way. I never want to go back to what I was doing before (and I considered myself a healthy eater!).

I now eat chicken, fish, vegetables, gluten free breads, coconut and almond milk. I eat a small amount of cheese from time to time and yogurt. I find they do not bother me. Some days I drink 2 – 3 shakes, other days just one. It depends on my day, how busy I am,etc.

Absorb Plus is expensive. But I feel my health is definitely worth it!

I highly suggest Absorb Plus and Jini’s protocol to anyone suffering from IBS or similar symptoms!

L.M., NY, USA

I started to use the Absorb Plus shakes a few weeks ago. As someone who suffers from UC I have been having chronic diarrhea for 4 years. It is really debilitating and I feel like a disabled person, having to time every activity around my meal time and the question of “will there be a private bathroom I will be able to use?” My other challenge is “what can I eat so I don’t do even more damage to my gut?”. This constant guessing game is truly exhausting. That where Absorb Plus comes in. I now have a go-to meal at the ready and it is a blessing. My breakfast is covered so that’s one less meal to worry about. When I am home and I need a snack, a shake keeps me from having stuff I know I shouldn’t eat. I feel like I have regained a little bit of freedom and it is an invaluable improvement. I tried the French Vanilla first and found it too sweet for my taste but now I am mixing it 50/50 with the unsweetened Vanilla and it is just perfect for me.

Thank you so much for creating Absorb Plus. You are helping so many people in their healing journey!

Love,

J.G.,NY, USA

I truly appreciate the Absorb Plus shakes! I sometimes have it alone, in the morning, then go back to sleep when I’m feeling weak or worn. Because it’s filling yet easy to digest, I can rest for a few hours of solid sleep and wake up refreshed. It’s kinda like how an infant will sleep more soundly and longer with a full, satisfied tummy! I also sometimes mix it into my full shake for Extra flavor and nutrition! I blend everything else first, adding Absorb Plus just for the last 10 seconds.

Absorb Plus is a GOD SEND, making my healing journey more enjoyable and energetic!!

Thanks Jini!

The Absorb Plus shakes have been a God send to us! Our daughter was diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis in August. The shakes have given her much needed nutrition and bowel rest. She has also been able to gain some weight back that she lost during a severe flare. The Udo’s oil mixed in also help us rest assured she is getting good oils/fats in her body too.

M.F., Abu Dhabi, AE

I have been using the Absorb Plus shakes on and off for the past 9 years. I have Crohn’s disease and currently in hospital having a sixth bowel resection. I have used the shakes in multiple ways, on good symptom free months I supplement my diet with shakes to get more nutrients, protein and calories. During flare ups, after obstructive episodes and after surgery I try to replace as many meals as possible with the shakes. I find them very easy to digest, allows my bowel to recover without the stress of digestion allowing me to get the nutrients and calories my body needs. I have also gone on Absorb plus shakes exclusively during the worst flare ups and it has helped me maintain my weight and energy during those periods.

Regarding the taste, I usually mix any two unsweetened flavors with any two sweetened flavors to get the right sweetness for myself. I find the strawberry and banana coconut too strong to use alone but I use a teaspoon of each to flavor all my shakes. My favorite cocktail is one scoop unflavored vanilla, one scoop unflavored chocolate, one and a half scoops caramel, then a teaspoon of strawberry and banana coconut.

I have shown the ingredients of Absorb plus to all the nutritionists and physicians I have seen over the years and they were all happy with the contents and encouraged me to continue with them. Some have started to prescribe it to their other patients and have thanked me for introducing it to them as it is helping many of their patients.

Personally the shakes have literally saved my life, helped me through many months of flare ups, helped postpone surgeries and allows me to keep strong maintaining calories and strength even with the most inflamed bowel.

Thank you for creating it.

I love absorb plus. I went from not being able to eat and losing weight with my severe IBS to maintaining my weight, having less pain, and feeling better and more energized. I love the flavors; currently using the berry and chocolate together for flavor mixing. I also really enjoy the banana coconut. I use absorb plus every morning as a meal replacement and I sometimes will use at dinner time or as a late night snack before bed if I get hungry. I never have to worry again about not knowing what to eat when Im in a flare or just when I’m looking for a “safe food”. I even took it to my GI doctor and was raving about it! Thank you so much for Absorb plus.

D.C., USA

I appreciate Jini so much for sharing her knowledge with us all. Because of this website I learned about Dr. Bergman, I never realized Chiropractors did more than back adjustments! It got me looking for a Chiropractor near me. I found one that does Nutrition Response Testing and discovered I had a LOT of issues such as Parasites, Virus, off the charts in Lead, Aluminum & Mercury, Yeast, Thyroid issues, etc.. We have tackled most of the issues and I am feeling so much better! I have your elemental shake every weekday morning and would be lost without it. Thank you!!

“I have used Absorb Plus for a while now. I truly like the shake. It calms down my stomach and it also helps me sleep better. So I have more energy during the day. Even though it’s expensive, it’s worth the money. I like all three flavors, I’m going to order nine tubs soon, that way I maximize the discount.”

IBS

“I was in severe abdominal pain for several months. The doctors were making sure it wasn’t IBD, but in the mean time I was hungry and couldn’t eat because of the pain. My sister has IBD and told me about Absorb Plus. While waiting for the Absorb Plus to be delivered I under went testing and was told I have IBS. I had already been on most of the medications that helped, with no relief. The doctor put me on an antidepressants and said it might help in 6 to 8 weeks and there was nothing else he could do. I had already lost 17 lbs and felt helpless. A few days later the Absorb Plus arrived.

I consumed only the shake for one week to give my bowels a rest and by the end of the week my pain was all gone. I only added one very light meal (eggs or rice) once a day for the next week and for the first time in months I felt hope for a pain free life. I have stopped losing weight and have even gained two pounds. I’m still adding food to my diet. When I find a food that upset my intestines, I drink the shake for the next few meals then I can resume eating. I’ve started to exercise again and now take Absorb Plus as a protein supplement.

I’m very thankful for Absorb Plus for both my sister and me. It has given our intestines a chance to rest while our bodies can heal. I know that without it I would still be pain.”

Crohn’s Disease

“I am in my third year of using Absorb Plus. I use it daily to supplement my diet where I restrict myself from certain food types as described in Jini Patel’s book ‘Listen to your Gut’. I have been making steady progress against 30 years of Crohn’s disease by diet and lifestyle changes. I generally combine the different flavors of Absorb Plus and use a heavier chocolate serving late in the day as my dessert.

Well, two months ago my colonoscopy showed that much of my inflammation had healed and my Crohn’s was not active. Wow, although I was not surprised, I was very elated. Three years ago, the doctors wanted to perform surgery because my inflammation was too great to perform a colon exam. I said no to that, did my research, and made changes to help myself. I believe Absorb Plus played a significant role in my comeback.”

“I haven’t had any problems. My biggest problem is fear of going back to eating real food. I finally feel like a normal person again and don’t want to go back to being the blown up blueberry girl in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I have another week on The IBD Remission Diet and it will be time to transition. Thanks for all the great information and a way to get back to normal.”

M.R., Pennsylvania
IBS

“I have had a long history of intestinal problems. I’ve been to at least 3 different GI specialists and participated briefly in Dr. Weil’s program at the University of Arizona in 2001. About 10 years ago, my IBS progressed to ulcerative colitis and continued to progress to an array of issues including fissures, leaky gut, proctitis, etc. It appears that my condition is genetic and I’m following in the footsteps of my grandmother. Identical location of problem and symptoms in the large intestine. Unfortunately hers progressed to cancer in the infected area of the colon and had to removed.

After regular colonoscopies and drug treatments, GIs have not found a resolution for my ongoing and worsening problems. Dr. Weil’s program required eliminating wheat, diary, eggs and meat for at least three weeks before reintroducing foods and journaling results. After three weeks, I found that this did not bring me relief and I was still experiencing problems. It seemed as though all solid food disagreed with me. After returning to PA from Tucson recently, I was ready to try something else.

Through an online discussion group, I was excited to learn of Jini’s books (wonderful source of experience, expertise and inspiration) and Absorb Plus. I was especially encouraged when I tried this product and was able to tolerate the chocolate. It was agreeable to my system and taste-buds. Currently, I only drink two shakes, take extra vitamin supplements, and eat one meal or two small meals of fish, rice, non-irritating foods daily. My stress is that I can’t seem to give up chewing at least one meal a day. The above is a compromise between body/mind. The largest factor is cost. I am unable to afford a complete liquid diet of 4-5 shakes/day at this time and have to budget very carefully. With these factors, I know that this is probably the reason that I am not experiencing its full effect. However, I am hoping that this slow introduction will give my digestive system a rest and allow me to heal even if it takes longer.

Any-rate, I can say that I feel great after drinking the shakes and they totally agree with me. I don’t think that I’ll ever want to go back to solid food for breakfast again as nothing has been comparable to start the day. And, a shake is perfect for a meal before bed. I’m most grateful in knowing that I have a product that I can use for flare-ups. I am still awaiting more improved results and would be happy to provide a future testimonial and let you know if my condition has improved. Lastly, it is wonderful to know that a reliable, healthy product for your wellness exists that you’re able to fall back on in times of intestinal woes. I only wish that the cost factor was not a major issue and that I could find it locally verses using only mail order. I’ve had difficulty receiving past supplies in a timely fashion and it is difficult when you depend on it so much and at the same time need to budget very carefully.”

“I am happy to tell you how much I enjoy Absorb Plus. I always had digestive problems and started to take Absorb Plus as a midnight snack. It did help me to feel comfortable. The best use I have is when I go to exercise, I take it about 1 to 2 hours before and have now no stomach discomfort or gas with exercise. I am happy that I found your product. I hope this explains it enough.”

Colitis

“I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 10 years ago, I was 27 at the time and the specialist asked me if I had a good health plan because I was going to need it. Stunned and uninformed and refusing to go the “drug” method I began the journey of naturopaths, homeopath and trial and error. I submitted to drug therapy within 18 months, in an emergency room as I lay in the bed in tremendous pain and bleeding with no control, I felt I had no choice. Asacol was my constant companion.

I work in the film industry, 16 hour days and heavy stress load for months on end have finally taken its toll, by this last April my body couldn’t hold its self together anymore and I was bleeding non-stop, with massive cramping and pain when I ate something. With a life style change ahead of me I knew I had to do something fast, I was on 8 Asacol a day and the bleeding was getting worse, I was afraid to go back to the doctors because of the Steroid threat. Through divine intervention I was introduced to Ms. Patel Thompson’s book and Absorb Plus! My life changed from then on, drinking 3 shakes a day, with no other food I continued the diet faithfully.

Within 6 weeks I stopped bleeding, after a year of bleeding! I’m now on 2 Asacol a day and I haven’t bled since, I tell everyone about Absorb Plus, health food stores, naturopaths, homeopaths basically anyone who is interested in helping those of us with IBD. Absorb Plus saved my life! I now have the energy, wellness and the confidence which has been provided by knowing there is truly an alternative to “drug therapy” has brought me a tremendous peace of mind, Absorb Plus will be a part of my life forever, my partner and I are currently trying to start a family and Absorb Plus has given me the confidence to pursue our dream.”

“I am writing to tell you how much your product has helped me. I was diagnosed with severe ulcerative pan-colitis about 18 months ago. I went from being a healthy vegetarian of 15 years to a skinny, malnourished person who can eat very little without experiencing severe pain and other complications. Because I am able to eat so little and therefore receive so little nutrition, I have experienced difficulty sleeping and concentrating. Additionally, I am a massage therapist, which is very physical work. I thought that I would have to give up my career because of this disease. Absorb Plus has helped me dramatically. Since I have started using your product I have gained weight, sleep better and have more energy. It has made coping with this terrible disease much easier.”

D.S., Texas
Colitis
“I was diagnosed with indeterminate ulcerative colitis over 10 years ago. I have been on 5-ASA drugs (currently Asacol) for all of these years. My flare-ups have become more frequent lately. After my last colonoscopy, my GI Doc tried to talk me into taking steroids. This was not an option for me. I had read Jini’s books “Listen to Your Gut” and “The IBD Remission Diet” so, instead of steroids I decided to follow Jini’s advice and promptly began drinking Absorb Plus. I drank the shakes for 2 weeks before I started eating solid food again.

The transition from the Absorb Plus to food again was so easy. It was amazing. During the 2 weeks on Absorb Plus, I barely lost any weight (I usually start losing weight right away when I am having a flare), my energy level stayed consistent and I actually kept up my exercise program. It’s pretty easy to stay on the diet since the shakes are just so good. I spoke with my Doctor about drinking Absorb Plus instead of steroids, and he was all for it.

I still continue to have flare-ups now and then, but I am so relieved after all these years to have a very good source of nourishment to get me back on the right track. Thank you so much for sharing Absorb Plus with those that need it!

I am happy to tell you how much I enjoy Absorb Plus. I always had digestive problems and started to take Absorb Plus as a midnight snack. It did help me to feel comfortable. The best use I have is when I go to exercise, I take it about 1 to 2 hours before and have now no stomach discomfort or gas with exercise. I am happy that I found your product.

ND ONE YEAR LATER!:

“I have been using Absorb Plus for over a year now. It is so great to have these shakes to rely on instead of drugs. I have not had to go on prednisone, because the Absorb Plus gets me back on the right track naturally. My GI Doc has finally agreed to stop pestering me about taking pred. to get me into remission as long as the Absorb Plus is doing its job. So far, so good. Thank you to all involved in supplying Absorb Plus to the public.”

“I used (Absorb Plus) during my pregnancy and after the birth of my first child. I am still using it every time I feel a cold coming up or when I am having a lot of stress and feel tired. I find the shakes easy to use, offering good quality, supporting my needs exactly as I need it.

I have Colitis Ulcerosa and have never felt this energetic in many years (feeling tired was one of my main complaints). Though expensive, I have full trust in your shakes, since being developed and initiated by Jini Patel.”

“I suffer with Ulcerative Colitis and due to the nature of the disease, I was not able to do my daily activities. It used to be very tough going to the office and working effectively. I learned about Absorb Plus from Jini Patel’s book and started taking 2 Absorb Plus shakes daily. Guess what: Now I feel fresh and have gained some of the weight I lost – Thanks to Absorb Plus. It is little bit pricy but worth the results.”

R.N., B.C., Canada
Colitis

“In the past, a flare up of my Ulcerative Colitis would almost always lead to a fairly severe amount of weight loss. Once I started using Absorb Plus, I discovered that I could maintain my weight during my flare ups by replacing several meals with the tasty shakes. The stress of deciding what to eat is diminished greatly by having the option of a healthy and easy to digest shake.

I work as a field producer for a couple of television shows that air across North America meaning I have to do a fair bit of traveling. In the past, it would often be difficult to avoid a flare up when on these trips due to the difficulty of maintaining a proper diet in the field. After trying out Absorb Plus for a few weeks at home and being impressed with the increase in energy I was feeling I decided to take it on the road with me for a huge three day trade show that I was covering.

Rather than stopping for an overpriced and nutritionally questionable cafeteria meal, I packed a couple of shakes worth of Absorb Plus with my gear and stopped for one of those a couple of times during the day. I was able to keep my energy up and returned home feeling great. My plan now is to always bring Absorb Plus on the road as a meal replacement, while continuing to augment my regular diet to try to get some wait back on health.”

After sleeping all night and having to go to work early, my body needs all the nutrients in a gentle form solid food can’t provide- Absorb Plus! On my worst days I consume nothing but Absorb Plus and my body rewards me with a sense of better well-being. Also, your loyalty program works like clockwork. I didn’t even have to ask for my free tubs- Thanks!”

S.L., Colorado
Colitis

“I’m 51 year old, and was diagnosed with IBD approximately 5 years ago. I also had a minor heart attack approximately 6 years ago. I had a stent put in my right coronary artery. Luckily, I had little to no heart damage. I have had high blood pressure for years controlled with prescription drugs. I’ve also had high cholesterol and high triglyceride numbers. No matter what I’ve done, I haven’t been able to lower these numbers. I haven’t had dairy in years due to lactose intolerance, and watch everything that I eat. All of the above at least seems to be genetic. I’ve never smoked, don’t drink coffee and have had no alcohol for years. Many in my family have had similar health problems. My father died at the age of 50, and he was a physician.

In spite of the above, I’m in excellent physical shape and certainly look quite healthy. I work out regularly and, as I said, eat right, but again I thought it must be my genes. My IBD had finally been under control as a result of using some of the suggestions in Jini’s first book that I’d purchased a year and a half ago. Those suggestions are the use of L-Glutamine, NAG and a carefully controlled diet along with the physician prescribed drug Colazal. Colazal had not worked as a sole remedy for a few years.

In August of this year, I had a terrible flare up that I could not get under control. I bled excessively and could not figure out what I’d done differently. Prednisone seemed the only answer, but I’d had some bad side effects from it in the past. My regular regime of L-Glutamine and Colazal was not working. I checked your web site and purchased Jini’s new book on different diets and decided that the predigested food diet was my last option before going back to prednisone. I purchased your chocolate Absorb pre-digested food shakes, and for the next six and a half weeks basically had four drinks, some clear broths and some organic clear juices along with NAG, L-Glutamine, vitamins and Udos oil on a daily basis. I also stopped taking my cholesterol lowering medicine, because I could not believe that this diet wouldn’t have some sort of positive effect on these numbers.

Over a six week period, I had two blood tests and found that my cholesterol numbers dropped from approximately 210 down to 139. My triglyceride numbers dropped from over 200 to 80. I also lost about 22 pounds. I was only trying for 10, as I’ve been trying to drop that ten for a year or more. The blood flow had lessened, but was still coming after six and a half weeks, but the lipid and triglyceride numbers were astounding. I’d also cut my high blood pressure medicine to the lowest dosage given of Procardia, finding this to be enough to keep my pressure under control. Again, the blood flow had lessened but not stopped, so I checked with my very open minded gastroenteologist at this point. He deduced that my internist had, in giving me amoxicillin three months before for what he thought was a bronchial infection, inadvertently messed up the bacterial flora in my colon.

This allowed some harmful bacteria to take over, giving me antibiotic caused colitis. This also aggravated my regular colitis problem. He put me on Flagyl for one week. Flagyl is an antibiotic specific for my bad intestinal bacteria. He then started me on probiotics to replace the good intestinal bacteria. This last step of probiotic introduction is also the next step in Jini’s book for healing my problem.

I currently, on a daily basis, eat two regular meals, based upon the reintroduction diet from Jini’s books, an Absorb shake for breakfast, Udos oil, NAG, L-Glutamine, vitamins, probiotics, Colazal and lots of filtered or bottled water. It is now about three and a half weeks into the probiotic program. I’ve been on Jini’s food reintroduction program for about the same amount of time. I’m not seeing any blood as of about three days ago. I’m 5’10” tall and my weight has stabilized at 172. That’s my college gymnastics competition weight. I get another blood test in about two weeks to see if my cholesterol and triglycerides have remained low.

The combination of all of the above was extremely well worth the effort. I’m convinced that had I known to take only the Flagyl, I wouldn’t be on the road to having my colitis under the control that it currently is. The unexpected cholesterol, triglyceride, blood pressure and weight loss results were amazing . In my estimation, this whole program was easily better and less destructive than the use of steroids to my traumatized system.

As I said, I still have a chocolate Absorb shake for breakfast. It’s my favorite flavor. I find them most satisfying and filling. I just reordered enough for the next few months. My internist was so impressed by the Absorb product and probiotic program that he has suggested this regimen to some of his other patients. I can’t thank you enough for your products, your research and your supportive books. If I may be of any help to another person with this problem in any way, please feel free to contact me. I know how frustrating this process and the problem can be. You have to be patient, but this program works!”

“I’m 38 and suffer from ulcerative colitis and celiac disease. The latter is a chronic intolerance to gluten which is found in more foods than you can imagine. The combination of these two conditions have left me weakened and undernourished with regular stomach pain, often chronic. Absorb Plus came to my attention at a difficult time recently and helped me overcome it. I was not able to tolerate solid food well so getting my nutrients in a drink was great. I was amazed how easily my stomach digested Absorb Plus and the pleasant full feeling it gave me. I’ve not had that in a supplement before. Luckily I was able to eat some solid food in conjunction so I was not fully reliant on a liquid diet.

The most pleasing aspect of combining Absorb Plus (blended with flax seed oil and a banana) and sticking to a gluten free diet is that I’ve gained 14lbs in weight – a significant achievement for someone who has been underweight most of his life (due to my undiagnosed celiac condition). My only problem: Absorb Plus is not cheap. I’ve had to economise (ie. not use it as much as I otherwise would) to make it last. At least now it’s available locally from Finlandia. That’s where I bought my most recent batch.”

“Having recently undergone the second of two major surgeries for severe ulcerative colitis, I decided to go on a two week course of Absorb Plus (exclusively, no other food) with the goal of restoring balance to my gut, losing some weight, and generally “detoxifying” my system.

This is a terrific product. I felt great the whole time I was taking Absorb Plus. The immediate outcome was a reduction in my cravings for caffeine and other stimulants, a huge boost in energy levels, and the loss of an unwanted 12 lbs, which has stayed off. Since my surgeries, I have been prone to painful blockages.

After taking Absorb Plus, my digestion has vastly improved and I have had no blockages at all. Taking AP has led me to question whether my surgeries might even have been averted had this product been available to me earlier. I still use Absorb Plus on an occasional basis as part of regular health maintenance. The shakes are delicious, easy and particularly useful when I’m in too much of a rush to cook.”

“After being diagnosed one and a half years ago with indeterminate ulcerative colitis, I tried the full range of conventional 5-ASA drugs (salofalk, asacol, pentasa) but experienced no improvement at all. In fact, some of the drugs worsened my condition. I also tried a number of natural therapies, including restrictive diets such as the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, a wide range of supplements, and bodywork therapies, all of which helped me somewhat, but which I felt did not go far enough toward getting the disease under control.

I decided to try the IBD Remission Diet using Absorb Plus after the onset of a sudden, nasty flare that also resulted inpainful swellings on my legs called erythema nodosum that made it difficult for me to walk. I learned about an elemental diet after having read Jini Patel Thompson’s book, Listen To Your Gut. Although initially I felt skeptical about my ability to stay on a completely liquid diet for any length of time, I decided that it seemed like a much better – and safer – option than the ones my G.I. was offering in the form of steroids and immuno-suppressive drugs.

I followed the diet for two and a half weeks then tapered off the shakes gradually over the course of another one and a half weeks. Within three days of beginning the diet my erythema nodosum began to disappear, and although one does experience some “urgency” as a result of this diet being all liquid – the nearly intolerable urgency I had been experiencing beforehand went away as well. During the course of the diet I never felt hungry, enjoyed the taste of the shakes and was full of energy.

I was able to put on and maintain needed weight and was amazed how little self-discipline it took to stay on the diet. I actually found I enjoyed the break from planning menus, shopping, cooking and cleaning up! Within the first week of returning to solid food I experienced the first solid bowel movements I had in almost a year. My digestion was quiet and painless and food was properly broken down. My energy levels stayed up and my weight has stayed on.

The IBD Remission Diet has been a dramatic, positive step forward in what I see as an ongoing healing process. Although I may experience flares again in the future, the fear factor is almost gone now that I know I have a powerful tool for managing them that will not cause horrible side effects or damage my immune system. I still consume the shakes on a regular basis, mainly for health and nutritional reasons, but also because I really enjoy them. I would highly recommend this diet for anyone with gastro-intestinal problems or anyone seeking a balanced, natural approach to long-term health.”

“I was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis a year ago and have lost 2.5 stone in weight since then. I was 8 stone and went down to 5.5 stone at 5 ft 3″. It hurt too much to eat and what I did eat was pureed vegetables and rice that contain hardly any calories. So as you can imagine, I wasn’t putting any weight on.

I tried other protein drinks, some were awful in taste and others contained too much sugar and artificial preservatives and flavourings. Nevertheless I persevered but just did not gain any weight.

I first heard of the Absorb Plus shakes in Ms Patel’s book. Since I began consuming the shakes I put on half a stone so am up to 6 stone now. I have more energy now and my doctor as well as friends have commented that I have a lot more colour in my face. I have recently had another flair up and so am going on the elemental diet knowing that I won’t lose any weight this time.

Thank you so much, I don’t know what I would have done if I had not found this product. UC sufferers have a lot of worries, one being weight loss and malnutrition and I’m sure a lot of people would agree that it is one less worry for them. Also I am going on holiday soon and will be carrying the shakes with me….and will be annoying the stewards on the flight as I’ll need to mix my shakes in their work area!”

“I just want to let you know that I love the Absorb Plus Shakes, and so does my husband. He was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis last year and I recently put him on the Remission Diet, since every bite of food he was eating was making him sick. I have to tell you he loves the taste of berry fusion (of course!) the chocolate I think he is very sensitive with it, but he loves the berry fusion the most. I will be ordering 6 more later this afternoon, overnight delivery, as I don’t want him to run-out, and on Friday I will place another order.”

“Hello, I am writing to inform that the Absorb Plus shakes have been working marvelously for me. I have chron’s disease and there were days that I could not eat and they helped me get all the nutrients I needed. Also they have been enjoyable to drink, I even crave them sometimes. My favorite way to drink it is when I prepare the vanilla in a blender with ice and a banana. It comes out foamy and thick. I like drinking it slowly with a spoon or a straw.

I have also found that combining flavours is a good way to change the taste. My favorite is vanilla but I have found the bitter taste of the chocolate refreshing as well. The berry fusion is my least favorite but have found it to be interesting with the vanilla. Thank you for your help and nutrients.”

“Here’s how Absorb Plus has changed my life: Since I started on the Absorb Plus I have gone from being so run down and malnourished that I could barely move around, to achieving the energy levels required to do light housework, yoga and even do the unthinkable – Spring Cleaning & outdoor gardening! What I relish the most is that now I have enough energy to enjoy being around my family and friends partaking in backyard barbecues just like the good old days.”

“Wow! Thanks for the great service! I am just getting started with The Absorb Plus which I was informed about by Jini Patel Thompson in her book, “The IBD Remission Diet”. I have had an ongoing GI medical problem for the last 2 and 1/2 years that has not been diagnosed. I have lost 25lbs and am unable to eat most things. I have tried many nutritional shakes, mixes, etc to make sure I was getting the proper amounts of carbs, protein, vitamins, minerals, etc – I have not been able to tolerate any of those.

I cannot convey my excitement when I tried this product and was able to tolerate it – AND IT TASTED GREAT!! I am hoping this will give my digestive system a rest and allow me to heal. I would be more than happy to give a testimonial about how finally I have found a product that I can handle and tastes great! It will be even better if I start gaining weight and start to feel better in a couple of weeks. I will keep in touch and let you know if my condition is improving.

To have gone from being scared to eat because whatever I ate brought on pain and discomfort to having something (finally!) that I can tolerate and enjoy (and is nutritious!) is remarkable.

Thanks!! Thanks for taking note of my two orders and passing on the savings to me. That is outstanding customer service!! I appreciate it.”

“I have been using Absorb Plus for the last month as recommended in Jini Patel’s book as a part of the Elemental Diet. I must say the taste & variety provided are fantastic! I was somewhat hesitant since there are only 3 flavours available, but have realized there is quite a bit of variety available especially when experimenting with mixing the flavours and I urge others to do the same!

The shakes (in addition with flax) have been very filling and I have had no cravings! Which was quite surprising since I normally have a voracious appetite. But most importantly my chocolate cravings were satisfied nicely by the Chocolate Royale.

Even my husband who is not on the Elemental Diet has been having shakes as they provide an excellent source of Energy. I haven’t had to change my lifestyle at all, I still have the same amount of energy and am able to go to the gym three times a week, work and take night classes. If anything I think the Absorb Plus shakes have made life easier since there was no need to worry about planning meals, shopping or cooking! And with my busy schedule they provided all the nutrition and calories and energy I need. I would most definitely recommend Absorb Plus to anyone out there who is considering following the elemental diet or just to keep on hand for their daily dose of vitamins! And as I said they’re great as a meal replacement when you’re on the go.

I will certainly continue using Absorb Plus even when I’m done the elemental diet for nutrition!! Thank you for a great product!”

“I received my order on 1/8/03. I decided to try the Absorb Plus that day because every-time I eat solid foods I end up in excruciating pain. My doctor has decided that I should stay on an elemental diet for now until I see a GI specialist on the 21st of January. The shake mixed up easily with no clumps, I used a blender because I added flax oil to it. I was very surprised that it tasted good. I have tried other elemental products only to decide that I couldn’t stay on an elemental diet because I couldn’t drink the stuff. I am very pleased with the ease of preparation of your product and the taste. My favorite flavor is the French Vanilla.”

“I have been using Absorb Plus for several months now. I tried it at the suggestion of Jini Patel Thompson. I truly like each of the three flavours, probably vanilla the best. I generally combine two flavours with vanilla the predominant. I have grown to like each enough that I look at Absorb Plus as a dessert that just happens to provide a nutritional balance that I need. I easily absorb the drink because of its elemental ingredients. This helps to “quiet” my digestive system when I have it as my evening meal thus assisting in a better night’s sleep.

I am scheduled for a colon exam this summer. I plan preparing for it using Ms. Thompson’s remission diet for two weeks prior to this exam. Absorb Plus will play a large role in this preparation. I am actually looking forward to it.”

“Hi! I am 16 years old and have had Crohn’s disease for about 6 years. I had tried many types of medicines to get my flares under control, but none of them seemed to work that well. My doctor told me to drink nutrient shakes orally or consume them using GI tube feedings. I tried many different types of shakes, such as Peptamen, Modulen IBD, Ensure (etc.). Those products tasted awful, made me gag and gave me a horrible aftertaste, that lasted hours. I couldn’t stand it any longer and tried GI tube feedings, but that only lasted a week or so, because that, too, was unbearable.

When I was in the hospital (to learn how to put the GI tube down my nose), the nurses gave me Modulen IBD. When I woke up from the feedings, my stomach felt really nauseous because of all the sugar and “unnatural” ingredients in the shakes.

The first time I tried Absorb Plus, I was ecstatic because it made me feel great and it tasted WONDERFUL! I’ve been on them (with no food) for 11 weeks so far and am still not tired of the taste-many times I even crave them! My other favorite part of using Absorb Plus, is that I only have to drink 1 cup, 4 times a day (I weigh 110 Ibs). With the other brands of “yucky” IBD shakes, I had to drink around 2 cups, 8 times a day!

I told other IBD sufferers about your product, and they were very timid because many of them had tried other products in the past and were dissatisfied. My advice is: Don’t have negative thoughts about tasting Absorb Plus for the first time, they really are that good! These shakes are kid and teenager approved! Thank you for making such a great product!”

“Despite not liking milkshakes, I have tried Absorb plus for the first Time and straightaway had success by excluding all other foods; within two days, much of my pain had subsided and I returned to a normal diet. Some of my Crohn’s pain has returned (possibly because I may have Returned to a normal diet too soon – it was Christmas!) so I am now taking only Absorb plus for a more sustained period. I particularly like the Vanilla flavour and will be ordering some more.”

” January 19, 2005: Our son was diagnosed in September with Crohn’s Disease. He is only 10 years old and had lost nearly 20 pounds. At the beginning of January, I found your web site and ordered all three flavours. He is somewhat asymptomatic right now and is eating well, but he really needs to gain back some weight. Using Absorb Plus as a supplement, he has gained three pounds in two weeks!! What a difference! He looks so much better and has so much energy! He is playing basketball, skiing and snowboarding. His color is great and he feels really good. Our doctor was impressed. He wants to start weaning our son off his medication. Thank you so much for your product. I hope that he will continue to gain. His next appointment is in March, so we will let you know the results!!

March 17, 2005: I just took my son back for a recheck, and he has gained another four pounds. Our Dr. took George off of his Pentasa, and he took down the info on the product. I hope that some other kids can get help, too. I will call Monday to see how his blood work went. He is still feeling and looking great. When I tuck him in at night and I rub his back I feel flesh, not bones. He’s up a total of 12 pounds.”

“Thanks for my recent order of Absorb Plus. This is my second time using the product as described in the IBD Remission Diet. I truly believe Jini’s claim that the use of Absorb Plus is as effective as Prednisone for my Crohns’ disease.

I am very anti-drug and it is great to have a natural alternative to the dangers of drug therapy (as my G.I. says “there is no magic bullet to treat Crohn’s”). The first week of the IBD remission diet is tough (the detox effect and hunger are a challenge) but it is nothing compared to dealing with the pains of Crohn’s disease – and it gets much easier after the first week or so.

I encourage you and your company to continue with the incentive program for regular users of Absorb Plus. In fact, I wish you would increase such efforts as it is very important to be cost-effective with your products. After all, most Crohn’s sufferers are in their teens and twenties and they are very limited when it comes to finances (I know several who would like to try the diet if it were more affordable). I understand that the ingredients are top-notch and are more affordable in your mixture than if one made it themselves. Still, do your best on bringing the cost down and you will be rewarded with more users.

You can use these comments (in whole or in part) but try to include the creative criticisms as this will show others how genuine you and your company are.”

“My daughter is 22 years old and has been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when she was 11. Since then she had many flare ups and before learning about Absorb Plus, they were managed with a lot of medication and sometimes elemental diets that tasted awful. This last relapse, just a month ago, she decided to give it a try and go on a liquid diet exclusively on the Absorb Plus (5-6 shakes a day). It was a life saver!!!!!!! The fevers were gone and her energy went up faster and without all the side effects of so many medications. She was actually craving the shakes. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.”

“I keep Absorb Plus in my home for my 16-year-old daughter who has Crohn’s disease. We are treating her complete naturally and this was a wonderful alternative to use for bowel rest when she is not quite feeling right. I hate the idea of giving her a supplement drink with chemicals and preservatives in it. The interesting thing is that I ended up needing it desperately and was so thankful I had 2 complimentary servings that I received from reading Jini-Patel Thompson’s book.

This past January I got a very bad bronchial virus. I was having cough spasms so severely that I injured my ribs. I reluctantly decided to try a course of antibiotics because I was so miserable. Four hours after taking the antibiotics, I was on the floor sweating and cramping. I thought I was going to die. I had a total bacteria kill-off and I became toxic. It is called antibiotic induced colitis. I started having diarrhea and then I began to pour out blood from my intestines. This went on for days. I chose not to go to the emergency room because I knew exactly what had happened and I knew that I would be scoped and put on major medications that would ultimately just prolong the healing. I have lived this nightmare with my daughter.

I lost 10 pounds in one week. My body needed nutrition but my intestines were very damaged and so I did not want to use solid food. I began to use the vitamin supplements that my daughter takes in her daily regimen and I used Absorb Plus for my nutritional needs. It was so satisfying and tasted awesome. I slowly began to heal and I thank God that I can say that I am totally healed now from that nightmare. I realize that without the ability to nourish myself, I could have easily succumbed to even more serious health problems as a result of the antibiotic reaction. I love this product and I will always have some in my cupboard for my daughter when she needs it and also for other health emergencies. Thank you!”

“I cannot say enough about Absorb Plus. I am 26 yrs old with crohn’s disease and as a last resort before going on steroids again I tried the shakes. They did take about 4 days to work because at the beginning I hade nausea among other symptoms which could of been a detox process or just because I was very ill when I started to take them. By the 7th day I could not believe the amount of energy I had and in general how good I was feeling. It was the best I have felt in months!

I think these shakes are amazing and I really crave drinking them – and the chocolate flavor taste GREAT! I’m so glad I know I can use this product when things get really bad. Although I plan to keep using it as a supplement in the morning 3-5 times a week once I am back up to my normal food intake. It is truly a great product. I will be placing my next order tonight or tomorrow, as mentioned my flavor of choice is the chocolate one.”

“Following the recommendations of Jini Patel-Thompson’s book, “The IBD Remission Diet”, I decided to undertake a six-week elemental diet using Absorb Plus. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 11 years old (I’m 27 now) and had managed to control the disease fairly well on my own, with minimal medical intervention, until a couple of years ago. Then, in 2002, I developed a dermatological complication called pyoderma gangrenosum, which resulted in erupting welts on my legs that were so painful, I couldn’t even stand up.

I was put on Prednisone, and other immuno-suppressants, to control the skin lesions. I have tried several times to wean myself off Prednisone, but my body is now pretty dependant on it, and I would experience nasty flare ups, both in my gut and on my legs. I have been reluctant in the past to try elemental diets, not only because they seemed difficult to maintain, but because the quality of the products seemed very poor. Most mass-market elemental shakes contain high-fructose corn syrup and other unhealthy ingredients, and they taste awful.

I am happy to say that I have been consuming Absorb Plus exclusively for 5 weeks now, with plans to start re-introducing solid food in a week’s time. I won’t say that it’s been entirely easy, but I find Absorb Plus to be delicious (I mix half Vanilla, half Chocolate) and I am confident that I am getting good nutrition from a quality source. I continue to wean myself off Prednisone, and am looking forward to being drug free very soon. Absorb Plus has been an invaluable tool in my ongoing quest for good health.”

“I received my order of 10 jars of Absorb Plus just after Christmas. My son has been having three shakes each day since then – he has Crohn’s disease and was quite poorly having lost over 13 pounds very quickly – it had taken months to regain just about half of that.

He is also eating three meals a day (as suggested in Listen to your Gut). He is still taking steroids. We don’t have scales at home so he won’t be weighed until next week when he sees his gastroenterologist, but he now has energy, is able to get up easily for school (as easily as any other 17 year old!) and has started a gentle program of weight training. So I’m going to place another order and thought I’d let you know how pleased we are with the results so far!”

“Now 45 years old, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 1980. Apart from the first 30 days after diagnosis in 1980, I have remained drug-free. have never had surgery. The disease has manifested itself as a series of very small strictures (2mm in some cases) in my small intestine. These obstructions, along with mal-absorption of protein, calcium, iron and other nutrients have caused much suffering in the form of intestinal pain, gas, weightlessness, fatigue, edema and mood-swings. With some difficulty, and with patience from family, friends and employer, I have been able to lead a relatively normal life resulting in a career, marriage and young family. Knowledge of my own body and its needs along with strict adherence to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet by Elaine Gotchall for over a decade are the two most important aspects of maintaining my relatively normal life.

In addition, rest, flexible work schedule and awareness of stress play an important role. Small things like wearing clothes without a waistband and lying down on my right or left side for 10 minutes (the choice of side depends on how I feel) actually make the difference between functioning in society or withdrawing in pain and suffering. One tool (weapon) I use is to fast for a day or two when my intestine gets blocked and I can’t unblock it. This of course leads to malnutrition and weightlessness and is not a way to achieve long-term improvement however it lets me survive in the short-term.

After reading Ms. Patel-Thompson’s books and experimenting, I have experienced good success using Absorb Plus as a complete food replacement and as an alternative to fasting to give my intestine a rest while still feeding myself. The results have been good, even with some weight gain. I use twice the amount of liquid recommended in the form of 50/50 rice milk and water mixed with Absorb Plus so that I maintain a good liquid intake. I enjoy the taste of Absorb Plus and see continuing its use indefinitely.”

“I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2001 at age 23. Over the past two years, I have tried many drugs, treatments and products to manage the symptoms of the disease. In September 2003, I began a low carbohydrate, mostly organic diet, using Absorb Plus as a major supplement to that diet. With the inclusion of Absorb Plus, my symptoms have lessened considerably and I’ve been able to reduce the amount of medication I am taking considerably. Additionally, I’ve gained weight and my energy level is significantly better. Based on my experience, I would recommend the product to individuals who have not responded well to traditional medical treatments for Crohn’s disease or who would like to decrease their dependence on prescription drugs.”

“Absorb Plus came at a very opportune time. I had an obstruction of the bowel and was not interested in solid foods. I tried some of the flavors with water, and some with milk. I found the product very compatible with my stomach, and it sustained me (good energy!). I appreciate the fact it is not overly sweet, but sweet enough, and it is light in taste. It is easy to transport because one does not need to carry a can, or a blender with them if they leave the home. My favorite flavor was the Chocolate Royale with a rich full chocolate flavor. Having difficulty with fat absorption, I did not add any oil.

I was first diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 1958 and have tried MANY different products over the years. I love Absorb Plus and find it satisfying, and energy giving. It has an ease of digestibility, and adaptation to one’s individual health concerns like fat absorption, or balancing fats and sugars. I must admit I really find the ready dissolvability of the product a huge asset.”

I lived on your product when I was sick and bed ridden with mold poisoning. I had severe GI issues and this was the only thing my body could handle.

J Patel Thompson, B.C., Canada

I may be biased because I formulated it, but, I’ve used Absorb Plus to both gain weight and as a daily supplement shake. It’s really handy for me because I can’t swallow pills, so I just empty all my supplements into a shake each day (Berry Fusion is my favorite flavor) add flax oil, and it’s a tasty way to get superb nutrition every day.

I’m now pregnant with my second child and I have one every morning with all my prenatal supplements as well. Having drunk other protein shakes and mixes for years, you can’t even compare the taste difference. Most of the others are really nasty tasting and I’ve had to force myself to drink them.

Absorb Plus actually tastes good! In fact, I find myself craving it and my 2 year old son often asks for a ‘milkshake’. Which reminds me, it’s great to use for kids so you don’t worry if they haven’t eaten much that day, or when they’re sick. You just whip up 1/2 a shake with flax oil (I put extra Vitamin C in calcium ascorbate form in it if he’s sick to boost his immune system) and he thinks he’s getting a special treat. Again, this works, because the product tastes so good!”

I bought the Baby Fart Aerobics DVD to have on hand. My daughter had colic, but is now 31 years old. I wish the info had been available then. It was horrible. Thank you so much for doing the DVD. I wanted to get it while it was so easily available. Such information is very precious to me.

L.J., California, USA.

Our daughter would get a colic attack at the same time every night (no matter what we did during the day) and her pain and screaming would go on for hours. The Baby Fart Aerobics routine helped right away, but it took us a few days to get really good at it and then no more colic attacks! Thank you so much for such a great DVD!

C.Z., North Carolina, USA

The Baby Fart Aerobics routine is fantastic! We were at our wit’s end with our son’s horrible, non-stop colic when we found your DVD on the Internet. Thank you for saving our lives!! The Baby Fart Aerobics routine is fantastic, but I also found out my son is allergic to dairy when I did the elimination test Jini suggested. So, no more colic and a much healthier, happier baby! P.s. I tried the Udo’s Oil as suggested and after one month I noticed my hair is indeed coming in thicker! Thanks for this wealth of information on the DVD.

My wife says that especially position on one’s shoulder, baby on abdomen, helps a lot to burp, also some exercises. On burping is also good walking with baby, his back on your abdomen in a sitting position (supporting with your hands). My wife likes the DVD and thanks you very much.

J.K, Author of “Tails Of the Golden Pickle”

I really found your Baby Fart Aerobics to be huge help with my six week old at the time. He is now eight weeks and I no longer consider him to have issues. We just burp differently as per your suggestions. And I changed his relaxation positions along with the “aerobics”. He is doing great now. Thank you! I wish I had had this DVD when I had my first two babies.

I would recommend the DVD to any of my friends who have colicky babies.

D.O., Midwife, Wisconsin, USA.

Thank you so much. I wish this had been available when my first was born–she was severely colicky due to milk allergies (through my milk) and it took us nearly 4 months to figure out what was going on. There is a lot of great information in the DVD for my students, and my youngest (5 y.o.) loves the audio CD. My middle daughter (8 y.o.), who is healing from IBD, found the demonstration of the colonic massage helpful. We had talked about it, but seeing Jini actually doing it on her baby helped her understand better how to massage herself.

S.W.,Washington, USA.

Some of the exercises are definitely helpful, and I am glad we got it. Thank you again for taking the interest to check back with me. Most appreciated…

I have had time to watch the Baby Fart Aerobics. I loved it. I have tried several of the things on my little girl and they have worked. I thought that the dvd was very informative. Great also that Jini explained the why’s and how’s. I think it is great. I love the gentle approach and it worked. Thanks.

“Thank you for making this DVD. My 1 month old became colicky at 2 weeks of age and it has been a nightmare. I became hopeless after trying everything out there- including all the classic soothing techniques (sucking, swaddling, swings, etc), visiting our doc weekly, GERD testing, chiropractic help, gripe water/ gas drops…and nothing worked.
As you know it is heart breaking (the worst thing I had ever witnessed) to see your baby in that much pain! My husband and I viewed your DVD last night and after the first segment we tried the first exercise and cried, laughed and hugged with happiness & relief as the first few tries WORKED and she had a blow out of bowel elimination (appeared to be days worth of bowels) and gas immediately!!! She does still appear to be in some pain, but now we know what to keep doing!!”

I did use the baby fart aerobics….tummy massage. I was already bicycling her legs but this helped and because of the DVD I made sure to do the routine every couple of hours. I think the biggest thing that helped was the suggestion of ME taking the probiotics. I had her on baby probiotics but it was difficult to get her to swallow all of it. When I started taking her to the chiropractor, taking the right dose of probiotics, and the tummy massage throughout the day my baby started to turn a corner with the colic. I wished I had known about the probiotics with my last baby!!! Thanks!

I have four children and I sure wish I had this DVD when they were babies! As it is, I still learned new and useful things from this DVD. It’s the best DVD I’ve seen in 15 years in the business. Very impressive.

L.K., British Columbia, CA.

We used the techniques in this DVD when my newest grandson developed colic and they worked really well. He was soon back to normal.

J.K., North Carolina, USA.

I have watched the DVD and I found the most helpful techniques were laying my baby on his side on the sofa as per Jini’s instruction and demonstration. Also, my doctor (and I for a while) thought that my son had acid reflux. However, I never knew there were other ways to burp an infant other than patting on the back. Jini’s suggestions made post feedings much easier. Thank you Jini!

I just wanted to pass along a big “thank you” to Jini for her Baby Fart Aerobics. My husband and I were desperate to find something to help our 1 month old with his terrible gas pains. It causes him such pain that he would cry and scream until it was passed. It was heartbreaking to watch. It would even wake him out of a deep sleep. I came across the DVD during one of my MANY google searches trying to find something besides the advise that I need to “wait it out”. I found and ordered the DVD and it worked the first time. We were so happy, and so was my son who became this calm, sweet child that we had not known until then! He still struggles to pass gas, however with doing the exercises daily, he is SO much better. We had tried everything and this truly helped our little guy when nothing else did. A thousand thanks!!

C.R., California, USA.

It was amazing! It works beautifully. He was able to go to the bathroom almost everyday. Thank you.

L.M., Israel, ME.
Thank you Justin. I don’t know if I’ve ever experienced customer service like yours. You have gone above and beyond for me and have contributed a lot to my healing. Thank you . You should be blessed to continue helping many many people and experience your own healing in every area. Take Care,

D.S., USA.
Thank you and the entire LTYG team for such care and understanding, doing business with LTYG is a pleasure.
Please accept and pass on my best wishes all for a most wonderful new year filled with excellent health, spirit and an abundance of love.

J.W., AU.
Dear Jini, Justin, Rachel and team, Just wanted to tell you how grateful we are for the amazing amount of info you give on your website. Your care for the needs of IBS people is wonderful, as is your support via emails & after hours. support. This is a hard journey, and it was so good to discover your encouraging website. May God bless you.

M.A., Hawaii, USA.
I wanted to tell you that I have received a great service. Your delivery to Hawaii is fast, and reliable. Of course, the products are excellent quality based on strenuous efforts and research. Thank you again.

C.W., California, USA.
Thank you for all the information, support, and good solid direction. My husband and I are reading these resources together and it’s a little slow going this time of year. We anticipate we will speed up the process next week, starting with the LTYG big book for a solid foundation of knowledge.

V.M., Massachusetts, USA.
I hope this email finds you and all the listentoyourgut team well. The reason for my email is to say thank you to you and your listentoyourgut team for helping me find a path to a healthy life again. Just about a year ago I had asked you about possible alternatives to treat Crohn’s disease and one of your employee more precisely Justin suggested that I checkout the Goldberg Clinic. I did contact the Goldberg Clinic and in June of this year I began my journey to a healthy lifestyle with the help of Dr. Goldberg and Dr. Tener again. The journey had some ups and downs but overall it has been great. This past November I went to Goldberg Clinic and the results of the last 2-3 months have been pretty remarkable. for instance my bacteria over growth test which was extremely high came back almost normal; my free radicles test is now normal and in the initial visit it was extremely high; Now I’m digesting food better which in the initial testing I was not etc..
I’m eternally grateful for you and your team for enabling me to see a new path that I never knew existed. I pray that God continue to bless you and your team in helping people finding health again. It has been a pleasure for me working with Dr. Goldberg and Dr. Tener. They are very kind and they work hard to help their patients regain the vitality of life again. Life is very precious and we all deserve to live it with joy, happiness and health. Thanks once again and happy holidays from my family to yours.

I have spent (what I consider) a lot of money at LTYG. I wish I didn’t need to but that’s not the point I wish to make. The products and services are superb. My last order was not sent when I thought it would be, I received an email informing me of this and that delivery would be after I had left my then location. It was probiotics so this became a problem for me. I sent emails and chat messages but it was the weekend. To my delight Monday morning the problem was handled, by last minute changes in my order. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You
I received my order at my new location (a hotel), correct, on time and still cold. Upon opening the order I was delighted to see gifts to pamper away any holiday stress. I love the products, great marketing, for I shall replenish them once they are depleted. The only negative to my whole experience was having to have my husband speak with someone with a thick accent, this only being a problem because I am hearing impaired.

D.C., Florida, USA.
Hi, Happy Christmas every one! Just want to say a very big thank you for my free gifts of foot and body cream and body wash. You do wonderful customer service. Thanks for all your help and all the best for 2017

S.N., California, USA.
Thank you so much for the very kind addition of some wonderful gifts in my recent purchase of Aborb Plus. I’m a new-ish customer and was just reordering my second Kg tub of the product since I found it so beneficial. When I opened it up and saw all the other nice products, I was initially concerned that I had received someone else’s order by mistake. Fortunately, I saw the greeting card and realized you were treating your customers to a Holiday gift. As someone who works in the medical marketing field, you have no idea what a wonderful lasting impression that can make. Keep up the great products, and you have not only a customer for life, but a referring doc as well! Whoever made that decision in marketing are wise folks! Most company CEOs would put a damper on that not realizing how good will has an incredible “ROI”.

S.H., Jordan, ME.
Thanks a million for your quick/comprehensive reply and for the cogent advice/comments therein. I’m glad to inform you that I managed to find an organic protein powder. I’m planning to add some spirulina powder to each and every shake. As you might know I started to wean off my medicine since a while. From tomorrow onwards I will stop my Prednisone. Imuran will be weaned of within the next week. God bless and once again thank you very much for your advice.

S.P., Qatar, ME.
Yes the video was helpful and it gave me relief. I would like to thank you for your kind service.

P.M., California, USA.
I want to thank Jini and her whole team for providing so much valuable information. You have provided more than just info. You’ve offered hope and validation that there is a path to healing, that I don’t have to figure this out alone and my choice to not follow standard medical protocol is the right one. Your YouTube video is so comprehensive. I learned more about IBD and diverticulitis in 90 minutes than in all my visits with my physicians and even naturopaths. I thank you and my gut thanks you.

S.B., Connecticut, USA.
I read the relevant parts of the book, “Listen To Your Gut.” I wanted Jini to know that it changed my life. I had been suffering with diarrhea for two years and finally found relief from following both the recommended diet and the probiotics. I originally thought this was a side effect of radiation for prostate cancer, but now am not sure of that. Perhaps the radiation changed the flora in my gut.
I’ve only been doing this for about a month but experienced positive changes within days. I want to thank Jini personally for her work, her dedication to this healing, as I know it has enhanced the lives of many, many others. I share my own gratitude.
I think the whole web support is wonderful and read the bulletins as they come out. Thanks to all in the organization who is helping with this important work.

M.F., Missouri, USA.
We want to thank you with all our hearts for the lovely Deep Steep body care items you so generously shared in our boxes of orders in December. What an incredible treat it was to receive your delightful surprise body wash, lotion, and foot cream! Thank you for “giving back” to your clients/customers in this way. We want you to know how much this is appreciated!!
Our family has suffered greatly because of our son’s and my ongoing gastrointestinal illnesses. We are struggling greatly, financially, because of all the ways we have sought treatments for our health problems. We are so grateful for the Absorb Plus protein powder. I feel it quite literally keeps us alive, sometimes! We can barely afford it, but we hope and pray we can keep ordering it!
May God bless you abundantly as you help others.

S.Z., Michigan, USA.
I’d like to give you an update on my husbands progress. It’s hard to believe, but he definitely turned a corner last week and we are seeing some huge improvements! Bloating, gas, and cramps have all ceased and, after several weeks on the IBD Remission Diet, he is finally eating foods comfortably. Even having some normal bowel movements (which is something he never thought he’d see!).

I would like to share some of the things that have helped Tom make such great progress:

– Moving very very slowly in introducing new foods, eating more fish than ever as it seems easier to digest.
– Continuing Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol, and taking Natren Probiotics three times per day. Also did the retention enema.
– George’s Aloe Vera, along with all supplements recommended at LTYG
– Nightly abdominal massage along with reflexology on his feet (this has made a huge difference in gas/bloating)
– Weekly cranial-sacral therapy (can’t say enough about these!)
– NAET (Nanputripad’s Allergy Elimination Treatment) to address food sensitivities
– Nightly Castor oil packs (from stricture heal protocol)

After 35 years of trying to manage Crohn’s Disease, we have never seen such an improvement in my husbands health. Words cannot express our appreciation for all that you have done to make this possible. Thank you for the support and methods and tools available through LTYG. God bless you all!

S.Z., Michigan, USA.
I am more than happy to give you feedback on Listen to Your Gut – the book that, I believe, saved my husband’s life. After 35 years of trying to manage Crohn’s Disease nutritionally (without medication), my husband’s body was giving out. From 2002 through 2016 he had been on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, experiencing some relief along with flare ups and a few partial bowel obstructions. Strictures from an original bowel resection back in ’82 finally brought us to a crossroads in January/2017. We knew how seriously ill my husband was when he lost more than 25 lbs. He was becoming weak and lethargic. I read both books, Listen to Your Gut and the IBD Remission Diet, in order to learn everything, I needed to know about Jini’s protocol. Some days I felt I was on overload as I cared for my sick husband while formulating a supplement schedule to follow. (I’m attaching a copy of my schedules for you to see.)
He began the IBD Remission Diet with a partial Elemental Diet for 4 weeks (the only food he ate was chopped chicken, fish, applesauce, and squash). During this time we slowly introduced all the recommended supplements. By the week 4, he was ready to go full elemental, consuming 6 Absorb Plus shakes per day. He felt good. No cramps, gas, or bloating. His bowels were loose, but we understood that was part of being on a liquid diet. All of his life he has been unable to take supplements, but now he was tolerating Calcium Ascorbate, Quercitin, Grapeseed Extract, Vit. E, Vit. D, Natren probiotics, Joy of the Mountain oil of oregano, George’s Aloe Vera Juice… and everything worked very well! We were excited and hopeful for the future. I referred back to both books on a daily basis, constantly refreshing my knowledge of what to look for and what to do if we hit a snag. And we did hit a few snags and had some setbacks. I “chatted” online with Cris at LTYG.com, and even phoned in on more than one occasion. Always, I received encouragement and the assurance that we were not alone in this journey! At Jini’s suggestion my husband began having Cranial Sacral Therapy and also NAET Allergy Testing. He also does nightly castor oil packs over his stricture area and I perform abdominal massage along with some reflexology. This definitely seems to be softening the stricture and helping things to pass. He has also benefited from Hemmorheal – wow, that worked almost immediately and he was so grateful! But most important, he has been working through some deep emotional issues that he feels sure has contributed to the disease process all these years. That perhaps has been the hardest part of this recovery, but a necessary part all the same. All I can say is that much, much prayer has gone into everything we are doing, and the results speak for themselves.
I would say the only difficulty my husband is having right now is that he has not gained any weight back. Unfortunately, he no longer seems able to tolerate Absorb Plus, which is puzzling because he was on one shake a day for the last two years, and then 4-6 shakes during the Elemental Diet phase. We are wondering if he built up an intolerance to whey, because even when I switched over to Vital Whey, he experienced bloating and pain. Gaining weight back is our biggest challenge. He feels good, but just can’t seem to gain weight. (We also tried Sun Warrior protein, but he reacted to that as well.)
I would like to share some of the things that have helped my husband make such great progress:– Moving very very slowly in introducing new foods, eating more fish than ever as it seems easier to digest.
– Continuing Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol, and taking Natren Probiiotics three times per day. Also did the retention enema.
– George’s Aloe Vera, along with all supplements recommended at LTYG
– Nightly abdominal massage along with reflexology on his feet (this has made a huge difference in gas/bloating)
– Weekly cranial-sacral therapy (can’t say enough about these!)
– NAET (Nanputripad’s Allergy Elimination Treatment) to address food sensitivities
– Nightly Castor oil packs (from stricture heal protocol) Words cannot adequately express our appreciation for all that Jini and the folks at LTYG have done to make my husband’s recovery possible. I truly don’t know if he would be with us today if not for LTYG. Thank you for the support, methods, and suggestions available through LTYG.

Thanks so much for your help. I’m very appreciative that all of you at “Listen to your gut”, exist to do what you do!!! Makes the world a better place.

M.G. USA

“I bought Fissure Heal for my daughter-in-law. She was facing botox and/or surgery for relief from anal fissures. She had a flare up a couple of weeks ago and used the suppositories. Within 48 hours she had major relief and reported that she liked them because the suppositories were so “easy to use”. Thank you for producing this product – she has other health problems and this, at least gave her
relief from one.”

BC, Canada

“Well, I went and used them and what a relief! After weeks of misdiagnosis and complications from giving birth, I gave up on the 6 medical doctors and their ideas of what to do (yeast cream, polysporin, diet recommendations), I went to Finlandia pharmacy in Vancouver and got excellent help. I was in so much pain I was screaming every time I went for over a month. in 2 hours (seriously) I went after not going for 6 days and had almost no pain – what a revelation! I can now eat with gusto again, not being afraid of the consequences… you have a great product there!”

J.W. Texas, USA

“FissureHeal is a real miracle worker! I had been in excruciating pain for three weeks and tried everything over the counter I could find. But after just two treatments of FissureHeal, I knew I had finally found something that was actually going to help me feel better. After two full weeks of treatments, I’m having no pain at all.”

A.B. Vancouver, Canada

“I’ve suffered from anal fissures for the last seven years on and off. They typically take a long time to heal – sometimes up to six months. I was thrilled to hear there is now a natural product on the market that can facilitate healing. I tried ‘FissureHeal’ in conjunction with herbs that my Chinese doctor prescribed and the fissure was completely healed in 5 days! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this product, it really works!”

A.T. Montreal, Canada

“I tried witch hazel, Preparation H and a homeopathic remedy for my hemorrhoids, nothing worked until I used FissureHeal, so thanks for the relief and a great product.”

M.R. Toronto, Canada

“I don’t normally do this sort of thing but for something that is really good I don’t mind.  Yes, I’ve had fissure problems for years–like about 25-30 years–and I guess I’ve tried about everything short of an operation.  Fissure Heal along with high fiber diet (lots of brown rice, etc.) has been really effective. Thanks.”

V.G. North Carolina, USA

“The Fissure heal has helped me tremendously and they have healed my fissure without any side effects. When I had extremely painful bowel movements I went to the doctor’s and was prescribed steroids and nitroglycerine ointment for the anal fissure. I was very apprehensive to use the medicenes because of the side effects. So I ordered the Fissure Heal when I was offered to try it at a lower price through your e-mail. I used it with my doctor’s approval for about 6 weeks and my fissure has healed completely. I still keep a box always handy just in case. Thank you for this wonderful, wonderful product I would definitely recommend it. There are no words to describe how great I feel now. Thanks once again.”

S.C. Charleston, VA, USA

“I’ve used FissureHeal twice so far. The first time was for a minor anal fissure and it healed up within a week. The second time was for a fairly deep rectal fissure, but that too was healed within 3 weeks. Compared to the MONTHS of agony and constant bleeding I’ve suffered from fissures in the past, your suppositories are miracle workers!”

C.N., USA

The results of Fissure heal is amazing. I have ordered 2 Packs of Fissure heal through LTYG shopping and I started using just one per day at bed time. In just 6 days my fissure completely healed and I no more feeling any Pain.This week my doctor also examined my fissure and confirmed me that it has almost completely healed.

My sincere Thanks to Jini, who recommended this product and for the manufacturers of fissure heal.

I am very much greatful for LTYG for sending the fissure heal all the way to my place in Vietnam.

I will recommend this product to everyone I know.

My only request is, Please make this product available all time as there is lot of demand and it is selling out very fast.

Thanks once again to Jini and to all associated with Fissure heal.

S.C., USA

Loved this product!! It worked right away on a hemmoroid that I had been suffering with for years.. Occasionally, I have a situation where some hemmoroids, and I think that one pop out again from straining. So, I use a piece if fissure heal one time and I never have any problems…

A.H., Canada

I ordered the fissure heal suppositories and they are now my most prized possession. They are awesome! I have to say, I don’t know what exactly I have going on down there, if they are hemorrhoids or fissures or skin tags or what but when I use the suppositories the pain goes away and I appear to heal quite quickly!

N.G., Canada

The fissure heal product has really helped. Within two weeks of using this product, my bleeding stopped. I had original thought it was a flare up with my colitis, after using the fissure heal, my bleeding stopped. I now realize that I had two different issues that I needed to deal with. I also purchased the Listen To Your Gut book. I have a totally different approach to dealing with my colitis. I am currently using the Mucus heal product, but with the length of time that I have had colitis, it will take awhile to see the results of the products. Thanks for your support!

F.B., Canada

This product worked in two days for me. I am saving it until next time, but it really is the most awesome product I’ve used for this area!

C.S. USA

I just wanted to let you know that I made these at home (I have access to all that stuff here) and I was trying to heal from a surgery.  It wasn’t looking good.  I scheduled another surgery, but had a protocol using this FissureHeal suppository recipe.  Today, I just cancelled my 2nd surgery.  I attribute it highly to these suppositories.  Thank you so much for sharing this information with the world.  It has been extremely debilitating to be out of my life for almost a year.  Thank you thank you thank you. Big hugs and love.

E.C., MN, USA

I am doing much better now. I was diagnosed, after a colonoscopy, with Ulcerative Proctitis. After using the FissureHeal suppositories for a couple weeks, along with my strict diet and several internal herbs and vitamin and mineral supplements since September, I have finally had a return to normal elimination without bleeding or mucus. I follow a diet that has no dairy, no gluten, no alcohol, no chocolate, no corn, no soy, limited sweets ( some raw honey and maple syrup), and limited eggs (duck). I did take slippery elm powder, turmeric powder and l-glutamine powder in water or coconut milk separately twice daily, among many other supplements. I also tried to eliminate stress and meditated and walked. Hope and a positive attitude were critical. Thanks to diligence and patience, I am experiencing a miraculous recovery after about 6 months of effort. Good luck to anyone suffering with debilitating symptoms.

Just believe you can do it and never give up trying.

Hope this helps,

R.A., NY, USA

I had about 4 hemorrhoids surgeries but I started bleeding again. Finally the doctor told me that I had to go to a gastroenterologist because on my colonoscopy showed that I had proctatis crónic. I went to that doctor still bleeding already over 2 recurring months and I got steroids suppositories., then enemas that I had to use for a month. Bleeding stoped then came back again.
I didn’t know what else to do and I went online looking for natural remedies and I found this book Listen to your gut and I bought it. In the book I read that I could have an Anal Fissures and I could buy this natural suppositories that would help.
The suppositories were a miracle because my bleeding stop in 3 days and it has been already over 2 months that I don’t bleed and I don’t have any sing of blood.

Julie, USA
Jini, I have just finished reading your book “Listen to Your Colon” and am implementing many of the protocols. I had been on daily Miralax for about 2 years and had been wanting to wean off it using natural methods and solve the underlying causes, but did not know how until I read your WONDERFUL book!

A.G., New Zealand
Thank you so much for your eBook it was so great to get some helpful information that i felt i could trust. My son has very bad constipation and i have been feeling very confused about what i should do to help him. I was so excited when i found your website I now feel confident with my plan of action.

C.M., Quebec, Canada
I have learn a lot with your books ,thank you for your dedication and good research.

B.C., Facebook
After almost 2 mths on your protocol and a slow conversion to this fruit diet my system is as normal as its been since right before I got hit with severe food poisening that caused all of this lower digestive mishap in the first place.

J.L., USA
I have battled constipation my whole life. After watching your video about colon massage I also purchased your book and this massage method works!!!! I was already taking aloe, acidophilus, fiber, water, etc.but this method totally changed my life. I have recommended your book to several people with the opposite problem. Bless you for all your work and sharing.

A.S., USA
My constipation is definitelly relieved, and I am very grateful for your tips and suggestions! More than that now I feel that I got control over my bowels and greater understanding of how the things work. Which is even better then just relieving constipation.

T.S., USA
I followed your advice about stooping when passing stools. Wonderful hardly any pain during and after.

Donna H., USA
It’s been a great experience learning about my innards and how to listen to what our body is telling us.

I deeply thank you for all of your in-depth research that you have done through out the several years of your own issues with your gut. You are an Angel for helping others in learning about their gut issues.etc.

I know at this time, that I have to really be careful not to eat too much soba/buckwheat noodles, it will cause issues. I don’t eat anything with a face, cause that is what caused my problems in the past, so now that I stay raw, and steamed veggies, organic non GMO tempeh, beans, quinoa, creamed buckwheat, juicing veggies, things flow good.

I thank you again for guidance for everyone with gut issues. You are a gift. The Best to You and Your’s

L.H., USA
VERY WELL!
I have both stenotic and peristaltic constipation. This has made a big difference in my bowel function.
Thank you.

G.A., USA
THANKYOU thankyou thankyou … Bless you … After 5 doctor visits and rectal colon specialist prescribing me boxes of anal ointments ,,, I used the foot step and it worked .. God bless you.

R.R. India
Your ebook opened my eyes to the problem I have suffering from the past 20 years. I will start implementing the remedies you suggest. I have tried the colonic massage and changing pooping positions. It does help in defecting but for greater healing, I understand that I have to use other techniques as well. Thanking you a million times. May God Bless you.

C.D. California, USA
My copy (of Listen to Your Colon) has held up pretty good, no complaints from me. I have enjoyed the book, and so has my colon! : ) It is so nice to have someone actually talk about this stuff and have it come to the light. The practical things I personally got from the book are the following:

~ when going to the bathroom now I mute the tv so i don’t hear it, shut the bathroom door completely, focus/breath/relax, listen to my body, no forcing, no fear. I already had the squatty potty before I bought the book but I used to sit on the toilet & watch tv. So this step has been very helpful for me to just focus on what I am doing!
~ tummy rubs, intestinal massage along with sweet talking/apologizing to my colon. This has helped me release some stress/guilt/fear about the way I have treated myself over the years.
~ I bought your book & Fiber Menace at the same time, so I have been lowering my “processed fiber foods”, upped my healthy fats intake, included magnesium supplements and STOPPED taking colace stool softeners.
~ Whole RAW MILK! Mmmm, I have finally started consuming that along with a high dose probiotic every day!

All of these things combined have really helped my constipation, hemorrhoids & a fissure that I acquired last year. Thank you for your knowledge/advice/experience! I am looking to incorporate even more of this “lifestyle change” protocol!
Thank you for checking in on me!

M.J. India
I am following your instructions, I would like to tell you that I am feeling better. Thank you so much for advice.

Hi Jini! I did read what I could on your site and I will buy your book soon. I am not skilful on writing but I want to tell you about what helped me a lot from your ideas and to say Thank You. A few months ago I had a surgery for a bladder prolapse. For financial reasons and the fear I had regarding this surgery I decided to go back home to do it to have my family around me. The surgery went OK and after 3 days I was home and I took care of me with a lot of things including oregano oil and my favorite enzymes, Serrapeptase to keep any inflammation down. So far so good. I didn’t have to take any pain meds. But after 10 days I discovered that they left a piece of gauze on me. I pulled out of it until I felt pain. I cut that piece out and in the morning I called the doctor to say and I didn’t finish when she started to yell at me to go immediately to the hospital which I did. They removed the rest of it and put me for a week on intense antibiotics. I took probiotics and Fluconazol but still I ended up with diarrhea. Some how I felt that from now on I will get better and better. They put a mesh(sling) when I had the surgery because otherwise the prolapse will come back. Here I am back, feeling good and ready and anxious to start working. Maybe I should have waited longer because I couldn’t keep the job having pain more now than when I had the surgery. And now it starts where I got help from your writings. One morning I got up feeling that my bladder is painful full but I was not able to urinate at all. I got scared and didn’t know what to think. After a few trys I start to urinate a few drops at a time. Then on the same day I started to feel the painful spasms and the need to urinate more and more often, just a few drops each time,day and night. I was not able to sleep more than maybe 2 hours at a time. I thought that I will dye because of lack of sleep and with those painful spasms. Reading whatever I could I found your site and I found very interesting ideas as I browsed through different topics. I thought that this new symptoms looks like I might have IC for which there is no cure. I used d-mannose but it didn’t help at all. Then I tried some baking soda, remedy I read on your site and it helped me to go less often and I thought the pain was less. Thank you for that help. I was so desperate… The spasms were still there and the quantity of my urine was less than normal. I did try something that came to my mind which was working for me. I thought that maybe if I could produce more urine and distend my bladder I won’t have those spasms and I tried to eat only watermelon for 2 days. It worked. That night I slept more and I realized that those contractions are less often and less painful. I still can’t urinate the way I did before surgery, but I can sleep and no more spasms. The signaling that I have to urinate still is stronger than how it was before surgery but I am happy that I am over that scarry and painful time. My urine is still very acidic and I am trying to change that. I will try the DMSO/iodine protocol but topical above my bladder where the sling is. Maybe this problem was caused by that mesh or because of what they forgot on me. I don’t know what could have happened to me if I would not find your site…. I have no health insurance and I don’t want to go to a doctor anyway. It looks to me that by having the surgery I replaced one problem with a new one and that after spending a lot of my hard worked money. I took a lot of your time but I replied because I just wanted to say Thank You.

B.C, USA
I can’t thank you enough for all the research and insights you have provided. I am 73 years old and have had one form or another of IBD-diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, etc for over twenty years. They wouldn’t definitively state I had UC because I didn’t lose weight, but colonoscopies showed my mucosa was very bad, I had diverticulosis up the entire side of the colon and over half the sigmoid colon showed signs of UC. I have taken many different drugs. In the early days the mesalimine worked pretty well, but I did not want to stay on that forever. In the last few years with the ever increasing price of drugs and Asacol no longer covered by my insurance I switched to sulfasalizine which caused stomach upsets plus the mail order house sent a bottle of bad drugs that didn’t work and I went into a full flare in Fall 2015.

I went to a holistic doctor in Virginia – Dr. Harani- who helped a lot and found my whole system was out of wack and got me back on track. Very low Vitamin D, B12 and B6, hormonal imbalance, etc. I started taking Boswellia and that helped, but I started having intestinal bleeding. The holisitc doctor suspected that I may have an infection in my gut. I went back to the GI in March 2016 who did a colonoscopy and put me on Bodesonide and Lialda. This did nothing to stop the bleeding and the Bodesonide made me feel terrible. We moved to Florida in May 2016. In July I was back at the GI who lowered the Lialda dose and wanted to put me on mercourprine(?). I refused to take it. At that point I started my own research to see what might work. I had some luck with various programs, but the bleeding never stopped. The GI doctor said it was hemorrhoids. That was true, but not all of it. In May 2017 I had another colonoscopy and the doctor put me back on bodesonide and lialda. By the end of the three month regimen I was bleeding profusely, running to the bathroom up to 15 times per day, had white spots on my gums like thrush, terrible night sweats and over all malaise. In July my constipation increased and I had to see a proctologist to have the hemorrhoids banded and lasered. He told me that the bleeding wasn’t just from the hemerhoids and I needed to see the GI doctor immediately. I had an appointment with the GI doctor two weeks later-I never went since I knew his only solution would be more drugs.

It was at this time I came across the SCD diet program and found your work. I started on the diet and went to work using your approach to see if I could get my gut to stop bleeding. I started with the Wild Oregano Oil, believing as you do and my Dr in Virginia that there is a infection component to IBD. I did about a three week regime 3-4 times per day with the Wild Oregano Oil. (I have my husband on it now for his chronic post nasal drip and my sister who, it turns out has a chronic sinus infrection.) I did the retention enemas (marshmallow root, slippery elm and comfrey root) for about a week to stop bleeding. I used the probiotics in powdered form – did have some problems with these. Finally I settled on getting the Absob Plus to address any deficiencies in my vitamin, mineral and amino acids balances. For the past three months I have taken the Absob Plus with marshmallow root, slippery elm and Udo’s oil almost every day. I also added back the Boswellia twice per day. My bowel movements steadily improved (the best they have been in over 2 1/2 years) and the bleeding has significantly lessened. Now just some every few days, usually in the form of attached to mucus strings. I did have a flare after Thanksgiving – my fault went too far off the diet. I had bleeding problems for about a week and had to go back to the proctologist. The good news was he said the internal hemorrhoids-the ones he had to treat last July- looked fine! The have healed. I believe there is still the one bad intestinal area in the sigmoid colon that gets irritated and bleeds occasionally.

BTW I currently take no medication, play golf, tennis and pickleball and practice QiGong and am very active in my church and community. I have very few down days now and it is wonderful to feel good again. I will continue my regimen and see if I can eventually get it healed all the way. I pretty well know what I can eat and not eat and if I feel a flare coming on I just go back to the basics. I tend to eat a combination of foods from each of the phases that work for me. I am so pleased and I truly feel I can deal with this now and can continue to improve. I would not have been able to do this without your research. Thank you again! Please keep up the good work. I truly learned to listen to my gut.

All the best to you and your family.

I’ve been to countless specialists over the years, both in the Western medicine and alternative sectors. A few have been helpful, most not, but none produced the results I have experienced after following Jini’s suggestions in Listen To Your Colon. Not only has my digestion improved dramatically, but I don’t have the nagging hunger I’ve lived with most of my life.

I took the Wild Oregano Oil for a few weeks, am still taking the Healthy Trinity probiotics, have eliminated starchy foods, and added butter to my diet. Butter is something I always avoided due to its saturated fat content – however, it’s like a miracle food to me now. It makes vegetables taste wonderful and most importantly, it satiates me and keeps me from snacking on off-limits foods when I’m out.

I’m very grateful for Jini’s years of research and dedication to this delicate subject. She seems to focus on the root of the problem, instead of recommending band-aid therapy (as I call it).

Lance C., Ontario, Canada
Hi Jini and thank you for this amazing book! It has really helped me. I did the oil of oregeno for about a month along with the probiotics. After the 1st month things started to really improve for me and now I’m going everyday. I’m still taking the probiotics and probably will stay on them for at least another month or so. Your book has been a big help. Peace be with you and your family. May you be truly blessed!

Laurinda K., USA
“I did the recommended treatments for the constipation as given in your book, Listen To Your Colon and I have been going everyday since. I am very happy with the recommendations from the book and plan to do another probiotic retention enema when I get the rectum healed.”

Erin J., California, USA
Taking my magnesium at night in a smoothie like you suggested helped head off the extreme nausea & cramping i had been experiencing. thanks.

Maria N., USA
“As I had problems with constipation, my stools were often bloody. Then I ordered your book and started taking vitamin C, Omega-3 oil, MucosaHeal and probiotics. This book is full of useful information one can find nowhere else. I have to admit I did not expect such a complete healing program. I am really happy to be healthy again. What I find as most important is the fact that in case the symptoms reappear I know exactly what to do.”

Favian K., USA
“Hey Jini, Wow, great job! I did not read through the entire work tonight, but skimmed it all and focused on the constipation remedies for children (the adaptations) and the dietary suggestions. Thank you, thank you. For everything. What a gift that you have made beauty out of your own journey of healing. Your transparency and desire to see others experience freedom in their health is awesome. Thanks again.”

Jane S., Canada
“I really enjoyed your book! No seriously, I am someone who has this problem (hope that is not too much information) and I found your suggestions helpful – really liked the holistic approach to solving these types of problems. It is obvious that you have looked at the research from all angles comprehensively – especially with identifying the different types of constipation – which I did not know there was so many – and explaining how to treat them. I agree with you completely that most ailments can be healed naturally and use of the pharmaceutical is ridiculous. Medical doctors do not always have the best treatment options. In fact, I’m beginning to wonder if some of them know anything at all! I am looking forward to trying some your suggestions – will keep you posted! I am sure there are many other people out there who will be grateful for this information.”

Nadine P., Alberta, Canada
“Your book is very enlightening so far – I never looked at constipation that way. Actually I never really thought I was constipated – just terribly irregular!!”

IBS
“I’ve had two serious bouts of “don’t really know what it is or what’s causing it”; more blood tests than I care to think about and two “nothing conclusive” colonoscopies (the first in 1997 and the second in 2003). My GP thought possibly IBS but not all of the symptoms and my GI thought possibly colitis but the tests are not conclusive. So actually there was nothing wrong with me except that I couldn’t eat, maintain and/or metabolize food.

You wouldn’t know it by my size but eating is one of my most favorite things to do. It’s a hobby… l love good food and I’m fortunately blessed with very good metabolism. However, if I ate I couldn’t leave the house and if I left the house, like to go to work, I couldn’t eat. Eating became a nightmare instead of a joy so I pretty much gave it up. With this last episode I lost over 20 pounds in less than three months which was pretty scary.

I’ve been thin most of my 50+ years (5′ 8″ at approx. 115 pounds) but skinny and malnutrition are a whole different world. Basically the treatment programs offered by my doctors were trial and error… let’s try this, if it doesn’t work we’ll try something else and keep trying until we get it right and the symptoms subside. Now I know why a doctors business is called “medical practice”… what’s the adage – practice makes improvement… wish they’d finish practicing before hanging out a shingle. I’d been hearing about probiotics for several years and since nothing the doctors were currently doing seemed to be helping much (some things made me worse and not to mention the toxic side effects of pharmaceuticals) I decided it couldn’t hurt to try.

I discovered and ordered Jini’s book Listen to Your IBS last September while on a web site ordering probiotics. I don’t recall exactly but I think sometime after ordering the book Jini sent me some information about Absorb Plus and a sample. My initial response was… interesting, I’ll have to look in to it. I actually tried the sample and placed my first order because my Mom started losing weight for no particularly good reason and I thought this might help her. Helping Mom was the motivation but the bonus was taking the shakes myself. Mom is gaining weight and so am I.

I’ve been having a shake almost every morning since January 2004. It took a while to break the 100 pound mark but I did and the gain has been gradual… 3 ½ months later I’m up to 111 pounds. YEAH… it’s the small victories that mean the most! My symptoms are no where near as serious as some that I have read about with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis and my heart goes out to them. I am now not taking any drugs and I can eat anything I want whenever I want. I am convinced that with the daily combination of Absorb Plus and probiotics I am recovered and don’t plan to make any changes from here on out.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! to both you and Jini for giving me back my hobby. My Mom loves the chocolate by itself; my preference, since almost day one, is mixing half chocolate and half vanilla. Thanx so much for caring and for your support!”

“I heard about Absorb Plus from a friend who has Crohn’s disease. Having suffered with IBS for years, I was curious to learn more about this product. I bought Jini Patel Thompson’s excellent book, Listen to Your Gut, and read all the information on your website. I had been traveling in Asia for seven months and was experiencing the effects of several stomach bugs acquired along the way, including a 10 lb. weight loss and anemia. After being home for 4 months, I still wasn’t gaining weight.
My doctor sent me to a gastroenterologist for testing and I was told that I had inflammation and ulceration of the colon, consistent with some form of colitis. After the procedure, I immediately went on the elemental diet as described in Jini’s books, drinking 3-4 Absorb Plus shakes with flax oil and iron every day for a week. It was easy to do, as the shakes were delicious and left me feeling full and satisfied. (I especially recommend mixing the chocolate with the vanilla and berry flavors.)
I followed some of the other recommendations in Jini’s book as well, including drinking aloe vera juice and taking probiotics. The diarrhea cleared up after that and in the last 3 weeks I’ve gained 6 lbs. My energy level is higher and I’m told I look healthier. I’ll be getting my iron levels tested again this week, and I’m confident that will have improved as well. I still drink a shake every day as a snack and will continue to do so because I enjoy them and it’s an easy way to get extra nutrition and calories.”

S.R., Missouri, USA
Thanks so much, Jini. I wish you and each of your endeavors the best futures possible. You have obviously helped so many, myself included. In my long journey with IBS, your book/forums have been more productive than my 30 years of docs/experiments with drugs, supplements, put together!

Max R., Dublin, Ireland
“I was told I would need to take pills for the rest of my life – and now I take none! The initial diet was quite strict however, I now have quite a regular, normal diet and consume small portions of alcohol. Obviously this is a fantastic situation from the prospect of being told I would need to take pills for the rest of my life to where I take none. Many thanks for the advice in your book.”

Catherine G., Vancouver, Canada
“My diarrhea of ten years stopped within three weeks! I did just one thing suggested in your book, and my diarrhea of ten years stopped within three weeks. I would recommend this book to anyone with these diseases.”

Lisa D., Edinburgh, Scotland
“I feel great and am not experiencing any symptoms. At particularly stressful times, such as exams, my symptoms can return but I’m learning how to cope with that. I’d like to thank Jini for helping me realise that in order to feel better I had to change not only my diet but also my lifestyle and the way I thought of my IBS. Positive thinking really does help! Thanks again Jini. “

Mike N., Texas, USA
“I’ve greatly reduced my medication and am feeling better! I have found the book VERY helpful. By following some of the advice, and listening to MY gut, I have greatly reduced the medication I had been taking and feeling better. I recommended the book to my doctor, but…he recommended more drugs.”

Debbie F., Arizona, USA
“Within 3 weeks the pain is gone, burning has eased, nausea subsided and the dreadful diarrhea is gone! Just wanted to pass on to you my thank you’s for your book and the help I received from it. It is by far the best book I have read for my symptoms of IBS, Diverticulitis, and Lactose Intolerance. I followed many of your suggestions and within 3 weeks the pain is gone, the burning has eased, the nausea has subsided and the dreadful diarrhea has stopped!! Keep up the good work!”

R.B., BC, Canada
“I am 37 years old and I have IBS. I developed this condition almost 5 years ago by a way I never thought imaginable. For a sinus infection I took two different antibiotics in succession, as a result I developed diarrhea. At the time I thought I had the flu or food poisoning because I had stopped taking them a week before. The trips to the bathroom became more frequent and so I saw a doctor who told me I probably had the stomach flu and I went home.

After 11 days with diarrhea looking quite sick I went back to the doctor who again told me I had the flu and gave me Immodium to stop the diarrhea. He never sent me to the lab for a stool test. Later on that night I became very sick with a really high temperature and knife stabbing stomach pain. I continued to take the Immodium but it never stopped my diarrhea. I had to go to the hospital I felt like I was going to die, there they rehydrated me and sent me home with a lab kit for a for a stool test. I continued throughout the weekend unable to eat or drink, in excruciating pain and sometimes delirious. Not until tuesday did I find out what I had. C- Difficile Toxin, a very severe case, I was given antibiotics to treat this and I had already lost 20 pounds. After 5 more days the pain became worse and I was back in the hospital very dehydrated. The pills were not working, I was then sent to a GI Doctor and the colonoscopy he gave me showed toxin throughout my bowel. At this meeting the doctor informed me to STOP the Immodium as it could lead to the loss of my bowel and I later found out that if the bowel stops moving death can occur. I am very lucky the Immodium did not work.

I was now put on a stronger antibiotic and after 7 days no improvement. I was then admitted to St. Paul’s hospital quite under-nourished and sick, this time I was given Vancomyacin. With one more recurrence I was given Vancomyacin again and 3 weeks later the toxin was almost all out. I was left unable to eat almost anything and hardly able to walk. It took the next 5 months for me to be able to function at a mild level of ability but I never gained my weight back and had continued IBS and colitis-like symptoms. The toxin had destroyed my digestive system.

Over the next year and a half I struggled with flare ups and learning to eat solid food again, my GI doc was at a loss with me but he told me that a small percent of cases develop IBS or colitis. Through this time I tried many drugs. I was under-nourished and not able to go sometimes for 6 or 7 days this would make me very toxic or I couldn’t stop going even after a bit of food, so I sought out alternative help.

I was put on a strict candida diet which caused me to lose more weight and this did nothing for my IBS. I then found my way to a naturopath who put me through expensive food sensitivity tests and another diet, almost everything which caused more weight loss. I’ve seen this doctor until recently, I spent over 3000 dollars there in less than 10 months. Each time I queried him about another test or remedy he expressed that I couldn’t afford not to do it, each time to no avail. Although he told me I could leave him he said there was no where else for me to go. I continued on feeling beaten, depressed and as though I have gone only backwards. I’ve always felt a little bit of weight would go a long way mentally for me. Which leads me to your product. Like all other powders I’ve tried before I waited for it to make me sick, it never happened EUREKA I struck gold but unfortunately at this time I can only afford a tub every few weeks. I recently hurt my back and I believe because of my prolonged anorexic condition my muscle mass has deteriorated leaving me quite weakened.

On a good note I have noticed improvements while taking Absorb Plus, I am getting regularity and my leaky gut has stopped. I haven’t had many positive results to talk about so this is really good. I feel that over some time Absorb Plus can help me, along with a good healthy diet.”

This is the best and most informative book that I have read on this subject by a “country mile”!

Ed S., USA
Thanks for the supportive info.

Have been using Wild Oregano Oil more for a while now, after hearing more about it in Jini’s IBS book.

I have even cured two dangerous black mold skin infections with it (I live in an old moldy building), although it took time and you have to cover the area with gauze then plastic and keep it wet with oil. Orthodox medicine uses dangerous drugs that damage the liver, as I’m sure you know. And the drugs are not that effective.

My favorite way of using Oregano oil is to put the drops in veggie caps.

Wanted to try Joy of Mountains because Jini likes it.

Thanks to you and Jini for all the support you give to your customers and everyone else.

I can’t tell how much this, the colonic massage video and your book Listen to Your IBS has helped me. About 7 months ago I started to feel like I was going a little bit more than usual to the bathroom, but it wasn’t until 3 months ago that I started to feel the horrible symptoms of IBS-D (constant diahrrea, anxiety and panic attacks, malnutrition since I could not eat well, etc). I was having about 10 bowel movements per day and even had to quit my job (I worked in a place that youu had to be completly aseptic) as my doctors were doing all the tests and everything came back negative and they could not find a cause of it. At the end my GI diagnosed me with IBS and I started treatment right away, but even though the treatment was helping, I knew that it was not helping me heal completly as I wanted because as she said, “I can only help you alliviate the symptoms so you can have a more stable life, and this part of the treatment is up to you as I could take the medicine as I felt the symptoms but is up to you to take the correct care of your body”. I know that our body has the capacity to heal itself (it takes time, you know) and as I was researching for this disease, I came across with this video. I decided to go further and saw your book, and started reading it. I started implementing all the things you wrote, like the probiotics, vitamins and supplements, as well as the diets, and could notice the improvement within a week and a half. I started alternating my IBS medicine with this holistic approach, and now I have been “drug free” for about 3 weeks. I know it is not that much of a time, but I can tell the difference is BIG. Thats why I cant tell you how grateful I am that I came across this video, and I know we all pass through difficulties in our lives, but is because of that that we can help others in need. And you helped me, as you gave the correct tools that I needed so that I could start giving them to my body so it could start heal itself.

L.H., NJ, USA
Love it! I’ve had IBS for several years now. I take Natren Probiotics and L-glutamine (and a host of very natural vitamins and supplements) and Bone support is part of my daily routine. I’m almost 59 and my dentist says my teeth and gums are very healthy! And I’m keeping bone loss to a bare minimum.
Thank you for all of you help! You are a true inspiration to me. When I was diagnosed with IBS, I felt lost because there were few naturopaths/holitistic doctors in my area (central NJ). But I found your website and book and knew I would be all right. And I’ve been managing my dis-ease very well since.

Keep up all of the great work!

“Hi, there! I have been taking the Mucosaheal for a little over 2 months now. I like taking it in the capsule form. I feel that the taste would be too strong unless you could make it less so if you made it in the powder. But on the other hand, many patients suffering from IBD are sick of swallowing pills and would find the powder as a viable alternative. Since using Mucosaheal, I have fewer sores in my mouth and my stomach feels more soothed and at ease. Great product! I hope this helps. Have a great day!”

L.S.,USA
“What I do is take a few capsules first thing in the morning with water and then again just before I go to bed with water. I do it this way so that food is not mixed up with them in hopes that they will be more effective. Having them in capsule form is very convenient and easy. Also makes it easy to take them along when traveling.”

B.R. USA
“I love the product, and tend to use it on “as needed” basis. Whenever I start to get symptoms (I have Crohn’s), I take 2 capsules in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, and 2 at bedtime. It almost always alleviates my symptoms, and as the symptoms start to clear I take fewer capsules. Sometimes I take 2 in the morning as a “maintenance” dose, even if I’m not getting any symptoms. It’s a wonderful product, and it helped me a lot. Thanks!”

E.H.,USA
“I take Mucosaheal in the capsule only, when I am in a flare-up I take in the morning and at bedtime. It is an easy capsule to take, thanks for the product it has helped me more than the medication I was on.”

R.B.,USA
“Thank you for your interest in how the Mucosaheal is working for me. I have been following the advice from Jini Patel Thompson’s book, “Listen to Your Gut”. The George’s Aloe Vera and the Mucosaheal definitely have been helping to heal the inflammation in my colon. I have had ulcerative colitis for over 15 years and had tried traditional Western medicine (azulfadene) but didn’t like the side effects and have had two children in the last four years and wanted to breastfeed without worrying about drug’s effects on my babies. Healing is taking time but I am feeling much better and my quality of life is improving. I can tell my intestinal tract is better absorbing nutrients because my energy levels have improved. This is a great product and I’m truly glad I found it.”

R., USA
“Thank you for your interest in my progress. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis about 17 years ago. I had been using azulfadene for several years but didn’t like the side effects and long term effects, like possible damage to my kidneys. I learned about “Listen to Your Gut” on Dr. Weil’s website on the message boards. I got the recommendation for Mucosaheal in the book along with her diet recommendations.
I have been taking Mucosaheal for about a month now and can already feel the difference in my intestines. The burning and cramping are almost completely gone, and the frequency of elimination is half what it was. Also, my absorption of nutrients has seemed to improve because my energy level is increasing as well. Most of all it has given me renewed hope that I will regain my health and return to a normal life in the near future. Thank you for your excellent product.”

J., USA
“I’ve been using MucosaHeal for 2 months now and consider it to be the cornerstone of my newfound health. No more cramping or pain either! Thanks for a great product!”

J.H., USA
I love it! It’s working great to heal my intestinal tract due to a 37 yr history of Crohn’s. I have 3 more bottles on the way. I’m completely out of MucosaHeal and my intestines are back to barking. I can’t wait until they arrive.

L.H., USA
I love this product!

I’ve been taking it for about 1 month. I have IBS (with diarrhea), so I take the powder out of three capsules with about 6 ounces of water and take it on an empty stomach before I go to bed. I also take L-Glutamine at the same time.

So far, so good. My very sensitive system has no problem with it at all. I have a long way to go to being fully healed, but I definitely think it’s helping. I’ll let you know more after I’ve been taking it for a longer period of time.

I’m not a big fan of licorice flavored anything, and I’m perfectly ok with the taste of this product.

Update. It’s been over a month now that I’ve been taking Mucosaheal (once at night, right before I go to bed). I think things are starting to turn around. I gained 4 pounds in the past 2 weeks! I lost about 15 pounds since last year, and have had trouble keeping the weight on. This is the first time I’ve actually gained weight in a year so I consider it pretty notable and I think a very good sign.

I’ve tried several products on your site and have been extremely happy with all of them. I can relay on your site for quality products, great advice, and on-going confidence boosting. Thanks for helping me to realize my dream of doing things the natural way!

T.S., USA
The Mucosaheal is working great! in conjunction with Absorb plus (and a few other supplements) it has allowed me to heal to a great degree, (from apparent acute Diverticulitis??) I now can eat three meals a day, plus an absorb plus shake in-between lunch and dinner, and a higher protein shake before bed (without any issues,) to try and gain back some of the weight I had lost, I will be placing another order soon, so I have these excellent products on hand when I need them. thanks very much to Jini and you for offering your knowledge and great products!

S.E., USA
I am using a suppository and 3 MucosaHeal tablets at night – somewhat low dosages. My healing is very gradual but continues to show improvement. I am also using George’s Aloe Vera and Oreganol. My energy has improved and I have returned to running a mile a day, which adds to my overall health. I also take a food derived multi-vitamin, vitamin K, Ubiquinol CQ10, and Grape Seed extract, as well as vitamin D drops. I believe in the healing properties of your products and feel I am recreating my “gut”.

I.K., Australia
I’ve been taking it for about one month it’s helped a bit with the discomfort I experience with Div ..I still feel some pain in the small intestine right side ..every now and then but I think it’s healing and these things take time to heal.i read that Div can take weeks to heal .. I take it on an empty tummy 3times a day as directed .ive just placed a new order ..can’t wait till it arrives .maybe I would get over Div sooner of I put myself on the RM Diet ..it’s just finding the time …thank you kindly for caring ..it’s a great product ..

L.V., USA
MucosaHeal is one of the wonderful products that I have such great results from. I am never without it, take it first thing in the morning and just before going to bed in the evening. The combination of supplements makes it so easy to use even when traveling. I am so happy and so is my digestive system that I have this supplement to rely on.

S.H., USA
Mucosaheal has been awesome so far after stopping my cimzia medication for my Crohn’s over a year ago (January 2015) and starting to get symptoms, I feel a total relief so far of my symptoms. I am so grateful for having met a girl on Facebook through a friend’s page that I was able to be introduced to Jini Patel’s website. It has been a blessing from heaven along with the consultation I had. Thanks again!

T.G., USA
I had a chat with LTYG last week (Thursday) because I was feeling a little despondent. I had been on the blood reducing diet for 2 weeks and the elemental for three, plus Oil of oregano, mucosa heal, and probiotics for 5 weeks. I was not seeing sufficient change in my symptoms and was scared and frustrated. The next day my symptoms started to turn around. This morning I am almost symptom-free. This is remarkable as my symptoms were quite severe. My problem now is that I have hit a wall with the absorb plus. I just hate them, especially the flavored ones. I am grateful for them, but I don’t like them. Yesterday I ate a banana and a piece of toast all day. That is the first solid food that I’ve had in three weeks. I just could not make myself drink another shake.

So, today I am going to do my best to go back on the shakes. I really don’t want to relapse by quitting before I am healed.

I can not express my gratitude towards Jini, her dedication to all of the people suffering from IBD/Crohns/colitis, her research, her protocols and her willingness to share information.

C.W., California,USA
I received your email for MucosaHeal feedback. They are for my husband. He seems to be doing better. I have been helping him recover from ulcerative colitis naturally since we started dating a couple of years ago. Your products are exceptional. We appreciate all the resources more than I can express.

S.F.,California, USA
I am taking one pill 2 – 3 times per day and most nights the recommended 3 pills. Don’t know of a sudden visible result but I am not expecting any miracles overnight. I see better results after taking it for about two months, less puss and less diarrhea and no more bleeding; that can be however the result of doing daily enemas with Slippery elm, Marshmallow root, and Comfrey root, combined with the elemental diet and slow reintroduction like shown in the book and the persistent taking of the MucosaHeal pills. So I cannot exactly pinpoint which one is doing what – except that the approach overall, as laid out by Jini, seems to have a beneficial effect.

T.H.,Colorado, USA
A few weeks ago I was going through a rough spot not feeling good. I started taking Absorb Plus for breakfast and lunch, then solids for dinner. Along with Mucosaheal three times a day, two twice and three before bed. I have also been on the oregano protocol for about two months. Now I am now starting to feel really good during the days. I truly believe I am on the right path. Thank you for the life-saving information. God bless you.

H.K., NSW, Australia
I am taking three capsules right before going to bed. I just love this product. No more bleeding, mucous and pain after I started taking it.

Highly thankful to Jini for this great product.

L.M., New York, USA
Just want to let you know I have seen great improvement since I have been using MucosaHeal. Less and less bleeding and I am down to two or three bowel movements with formed stool. The bleeding though still comes and goes, but it’s definitely not the stale foul blood as before. Even though I wish the bleeding would just be gone. I was also able to do the enema three times by myself using the little bottle and once with assistance where I used the bag. I just need to get someone to help me to do it properly two or three times and I think the bleeding would stop. I am working on doing that.

Diarrhea has cleared up a lot from ten or more uncontrollable BM’s per day. Now I don’t have to be in such a mad rush to get to the bathroom. My stool is forming nicely. I’m doing MucosaHeal only at bedtime now. It’s all coming together. I’m waiting on my probiotics to get here so I can take that as well.
Thanks

P.B., CA, USA
I am a 25-year-old male that was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in November 2017. I am a firefighter and in the military as a reservist. Although I was diagnosed with UC late 2017, I was experiencing symptoms as far back as a year prior.

Not only have I been taking MucosalHeal, but I have also been taking: Aloe Juice, glutamine, flaxseed oil, and the three probiotics from Natren. These supplements have provided me with life-saving treatment. I am off all medication and live a normal life. I take everything twice a day and have had great success. This treatment of my UC has saved both my careers, even at a time when I believed I would lose everything. Jini’s book and recommended supplements have been an answer to prayer for me, my family, and loved ones. I no longer experience bleeding in my stools and have no uncontrollable bowel movements any longer.
MucosalHeal has been working miraculously.

Actually, I’ve written testimonials about this product before. To say I love it is an understatement. I have diverticulosis/diverticulitis and have been hospitalized several times with it. When I begin feeling symptoms (if I am not eating correctly), I immediately reach for Mucosoheak immediately. What I have been doing recently, is taking several capsules before bed at night and several in the morning. This has helped tremendously. I think it is one of the greatest products out there. I try to keep a supply of it and will be ordering it again shortly.
I have also written a testimony for Bone Support, which helped me tremendously after a back surgery and bilateral knee surgery. I love your products and I can testify that they do, indeed work.

We have seen good results with Mucosaheal and the Absorb Plus shakes. Our daughter was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis approximately 2 months ago. She was on Prednisone for almost 4 weeks and after weaned off diarrhea and bleeding returned about 6 days later. The shakes have given her bowels the rest she’s needed and also helped her gain back some of the weight she’d lost when the flare was at its worst.

We have already recommended Musoheal to 2 friends who have bought if from your site because of what we’ve shared with people. One friend saw results right away after taking when a Crohn’s flare started!
We are believers in the natural path, but we still have much progress to be made. We’re not in the horrific state we were in a couple months ago, but still not where we’d like to be healthwise.

Thank you so much for the valuable information and insight you provide!!
So glad we found you and LTYG!

I’ve been using the Mucosaheal for about 2 months now with very good results. During my last colonoscopy, I was told I had some slight diverticulosis which explained why my bowel habits had changed causing me some discomfort. After using the Mucosa for about a week I noticed a very significant improvement with a return to almost what was once normal for me. I take one before I eat anything in the morning and then one again at night before sleep. If I feel like I’m beginning to have a problem I take one in the middle of the day on an empty stomach.
I will say that my initial problem was mild but I didn’t want to wait until it became a serious condition so I started to do some research and your website was very helpful in understanding the whole digestive system.

I am happy that I tried your product and that I am taking proactive steps to prevent any diverticula from becoming infected, the Mucosheal is definitely making things better for me.
Thank you, Jini, for your website and very excellent products.

I became interested some months ago when I realised that it had been a year and a half since I did had a solid stool. Like many people, I imagine, my symptoms didnt seem to fit anything and after my blood tests came out clear my GP suggested I had a colonoscopy. Having come across your site and read what you had to say about it, I declined the offer. I decided instead to try a colonic irrigation followed by some of the Natrem Bifidum powder and I think it has helped.
Thank you so much for your fantastic site with all its great information. It is a very wonderful resource.

K.W., USA
Thanks for coming out with a book [What] that helps to give people more clarity of what to do to get their health back – can’t wait to finish it!

S.M., UK
It (What You Need To Know About Probiotics (eBook)) was really helpful. Many thanks.

M.C., USA
The (What You Need To Know About Wild Oregano Oil) book is excellent thanks……………..I already used it for a tooth infection with great results.

V.G., USA
I enjoyed your very informative report on probiotics. Your reports are always so clear and easy to understand, I always learn so much. I have IBS so really appreciate your work. Thanks so much.

D.T., USA
I appreciate what you offer to people for free via UTUBE and online. For disabled people living on a fixed income, it is so helpful.

B.V., USA
It (Jini’s Healing Guide: Natural Treatments for Gut Infection) was a lot of great information.

Carolyn, USA
I love your resources. They are clearly written and offer thoughtful advice.

C.S., USA
I really appreciate Jini’s video on bathroom techniques. She helps reassure the viewer that impaired function is manageable. Sharing her own experience helps normalize these conditions so one doesn’t feel like troubles in the bathroom are a dire pathology. Jini is also very generous with sharing resources.

S.J., USA[What]:

After reading your ebook, I immediately ordered Natren’s Bifdo Factor powder.

After some experimentation, I finally settled on a dosage of two level teaspoonfuls daily and have, surprisingly (to me, at least) noted a marked improvement in my condition. Following a period of adjustment to this probiotic, Natren’s Megadolphilus and Digestalac, will certainly follow.. the key was the much larger probiotic dosage than I have taken previously, and, I believe, the Natren’s brand.

Your professional advice – from one who has been there – was invaluable!!

Thank you!

R.P., USA
Thank you for the information (IBS Quick Start Guide) and your dedication to help others. I believe I came across your information for a reason. Thanks to you I’m feeling a lot better. You have renewed my hope in the ability to regain good health.

W.P., USA
Great stuff! Thanks for the useful information about Wild Oregano Oil.
I have sufferred recurrent canker sores (mouth ulcers inside the lips, on the cheeks and on the tongue which is very painful) for almost three years. But recently it has become more severe because the ulcers relapse very fast (within a week after the previous one healed).
I’ve sought medical doctor’s help and it did not help much. I stopped all medications from doctor and started applying Wild Oregano Oil (2 to 3 drops without dilution) regularly 3 to 4 times a day after I read your ebook and now it is getting better. After a month, the sores have disappeared but I continue to apply one or two times a day because the sores have left a lot lesions especially on my tongue.
At the beginning, I swallow the oil but later I found the oil was too strong and caused gastric pain, so I stopped swallowing the oil. I spat my saliva two to three times after applying the oil to prevent side effect that caused gastric pain.

J.J., USA
Thank You! I do not have IBD, INS, or Crohn’ s disease, but what I have fought with since age 21 to now 46 years old is chronic painful embarrassing adult cystic acne. Your wild oregano oil especially, antibiotics, diet adjustments in 1 week have helped me more than any drug or cream! You have no idea the pain this condition has brought to my life. I am so thankful to have come across your web site by accident & your research and hard work has helped me. I now realise my condition stems from my gut! [What]

G.B., USA
I appreciated your common-sense approach to this (my) problem, and have never seen anything in print to compare with the information and advice contained in the [Jini] ebook. Thanks so much; the information has helped me immensely.

G.B., USA[Jini]:
Thank you, Jini. I was so happy to find the information. It has been so helpful. This topic seems almost taboo and you normalize it.
Can’t thank you enough!

K.L., USA[Jini] I am so happy that I finally found the treatment program that is totally natural and really works. I actually owned and tried to cure myself with oregano oil and probiotics, but never knew how exactly to do it- the proportions, the order and length of the treatment, and especially the right kind of probiotics.
But most of all, I was not sure that this natural approach would really work on such a serious illness as colitis or Crohn’s, because every doctor I saw here, in the US, would just laugh at me when I asked for some natural remedies and send you to colonoscopy every year.
I come from Russia where everybody cures themselves with herbs and homeopathy, and doctors prescribe both, traditional and “modern” medicine. We never take any harsh medicine for the rest of our lives, like Americans. So soon I realized that I was looked upon as the only crazy, “old- fashioned” person that would still believe in the power of natural remedies. I eventually stopped believing in it myself and did’t give it a serious shot. I tried oregano and probiotics, but always supplemented them with Asacol.
Now I know many people are using oils and probiotics here too, and I should have stuck with them. This knowledge is powerful and makes you not to give up. It really works and has a great long term effect.
Thanks, Jini, for your dedication!

S.H., Canada
I’ve known of and used wild oregano oil for many years but not on a regular,daily basis. I’d use it when my stomach was upset or if feeling “not right”…. But now I’ve been taking it daily and , after watching your great video with your daughter, take it as she demonstrated! (She’s following in her mom’s footsteps!). Thanks so much for LTYG!

J.L, USA
Hi Jini, thank you for the QuickStart guide for healing.
I have learnt so much with your support on the courses you have been sending me on probiotics ,candida,bacterias etc. I was trying some natural detox remedies before I went to hospital but I think I was a little to far gone and didn’t know enough yet and I was still working not a good combination it all caught up with me and I had a bad flare up with ulcerative colitis. I am out of hospital now was in for a week Currently I am on prednisilone steroids ,pentasa ,and ramicade infusions I have one infusion to go and then the doctors plan on a long term management drug plan Azathioprine. I plan on getting on top of this flare first on these drugs then convince the doctor i want to wean off the meds with diet changes and natural remedies. I’ll be changing my diet to specific carbohydrate diet or also called breaking the vicious cycle I have bought the books still waiting on them. I think I may have been eating incorrectly in the past I need to fix this up first along with the healing the gut teachings ongoing learning for me here. I’m especially interested In killing off parasites and candida I have been to Thailand a couple of times and got guardia one time and very sick another I don’t think I really recovered properly since then that was in a span of 3-4 years. I didn’t know about probiotics and their benefits I didn’t take any during the time I was sick and I do remember taking antibiotics to kill the guardia.I also quit my stressful job I think was a major contributor so cleaning up my life also along the way. Live and learn I’ll be back armed with more knowledge and disciplining myself with diet and detox. I look forward to your quick course guides they help tremendously thank you. You are a living example of determination and your results speak for themselves very inspiring ,and going on helping others must be very satisfying to you.

A.O., USA
Thanks for your interest. I am engaging your Wild Oregano Oil Protocol with Natren Probiotics for a moderate crohns condition. After 1 month my flare ups have decreased and are less severe. I am hoping my progress continues into remission and probiotics only. Many thanks for offering answers, education and natural alternatives for those of us with IBD. [What]

YOUR BOOKLET I COPIED WAS A GODSEND. My Mom who lives with us and will be 98 in Feb., is the one who suffered this happening to her. Although she was correctly diagnosed they had nothing to much to offer as to how to deal with it other than send us to a surgeon in this field who ruled out surgery because of her age and offered sugar to be sprinkled on it to retrieve it back in. She was in excruciating pain when she had to do a bowel movement due to the pressure it exerted in this area.
Since following many of the guidelines in your book she is not undergoing this type of pain this week. I took your booklet with me every place I was meeting with a specialist so I had a clear understanding for a layman and could ask the right questions and field answers from them with the knowledge you imparted. I felt empowered to get the best possible help for Mom in this area.
I started with our chiropractor whose help did improve things slightly but then found a physical therapist who has improved things greatly in just 2 visits. This is done by particular stomach strengthening, leg and rotation exercises as well as the specific massaging of most of those areas in the backside mentioned in your booklet.
I went to a health food store and she has been on the regimen you suggested for avoiding constipation; the magnesium [100%] and potassium citrate concentrations you recommended [done]- 7 billion, one capsule of probiotic per day[ Nutrition Now, PB 8]. I also bought a comfrey and aloe salve you recommended. Bought the cold-pressed castor oil and flannel pad but have not tried this yet with her.
She takes a stool softener now when needed but was doing it daily at one point earlier. Tried the chia with her but she did not like how it got caught under her dentures.

I am happy with the 2 e-books I have read until now, and I have no deep thoughts about the ‘Wild origano’ one.
The other was ‘Contispation&diet’ I was happy to read it. I like your style, it is ‘fresh’ and ‘simple’.
I think your writtings about the body and ‘the tube’ 🙂 (the guts !) is very ‘gentle’ and ‘comprehensive’, I love that !!
it makes me feel like being more gentle and comprehensive with mines. This is … ‘YAY’ !!
I will wrote you my reflections about the content of this one a bit later, because I want to read ‘Listen to your colon’ first.
All I can say is you managed to make the content ‘cristal clear’ (for me), and that I found it ‘cheerful’ and ‘useful’.
I would like to say to you that :
“Your very simple presence in your videos are inspiring to me.”
I like to see your being shining ‘outside from the inside’ ! It looks very good to be in !! I want that for me too !
You are inspiring me. Thank you.
Have a nice day you Magnificent Woman !!

The [Rectal] guide was a great blessing to me, the doctor said that the only remedy was to be operated, but I adopted only two of the guide, that is the right toilet sitting position and eating fiber rich food its exactly one month now and I am totally healed. Thanks.

D.K., USA
Thanks for your guide[Rectal]. It was of great help to me. More so because it was a home remedy and thus a self do thing. Thanks a lot.

C.M., USA
I found the information in the [What] ebook interesting and compelling. It inspired me to try the oregano oil to heal my fistulas. I’m hoping and praying it works!

S.Z., USA
Really helpful, comprehensive and detailed [Relieving] ebook. Thanks!

S.C., Australia
Hi, I live in Australia and have a son with intestinal issues, I have found your [What] book helpful and it gives us another perspective on healing, I have purchased some DMSO and hope to convince my son to give it a go, thank you for your help.

T.J., USA
Thank you for the [What] book, it was a good read. I have been using oregano, as a daily supplement for a little over a year now,with amazing results. My overall health is at a level that I can not ever remember it being. I was plagued with sinus problems,ear infections and colds continuously. Within weeks of starting oregano I have had no ear infection, clear sinus and one minor cold. It lasted 3 days and felt like when your getting sick that first day. So it was very very mellow. I am sold on it. My kids are on a much smaller regiment of it and have been sick free for over 6 months. And I am happy to say after more than a year my wife is starting to use it. Anyway again thank you! I enjoy reading and learning as much as I can about the herb and it’s many uses. On a different note I see you have a book with a treatment for Harding of the Colin, that I’ll be buying. I am very interested in this after finding out I have that problem and over the last few years it’s impossible to have a normal bowel movement. You have a good site with good information thank you again

B.D., USA
I have looked at the [Rectal] Healing guide and am going to go to a Physical therapist after the Holidays. I am working on my diet, and keep changing things. That is what seems to help the most. I’m down to eating fish, chicken, turkey, vegy’s, fruit, flax oil, butter. Mainly soft foods! I might have missed some things! No sugar, grains, white flour, dairy (except yogurt), and nuts and seeds seem to bother me also. I never strain when I have a bowl movement and am taking probiotics, Magnesium, vitamin C. to keep bowl soft. I didn’t get to read all your links but will. Most of all, thank you for your help, this is about the worst thing I think I have had and I have had my fill of problems and surgeries. You give me hope and it helps with the ongoing stress of this problem. I do not want another surgery, so I am going to try everything possible to help myself. Thanks again!

J.B., USA
I became ill shortly after Christmas this year with a flu that left my stomach and digestive system in ruins, and I decided to look for health information online. I really didn’t want to go to a regular Doctor, I knew what a nightmare of doors that would open. Thankfully, I found your website and, free of charge, was able to get the information I needed to begin slowly healing. The information from you that I read about healing my digestive organs was inspiring and supportive, very reminiscent of how my own mother ran her business and treated her clients. I was able to get concrete answers and solutions that I could follow through on. I decided to try some of the remedies, with a few changes, as I knew my body had some allergies to address that others may not have to think about, and came up with a plan. Within two weeks my major symptoms had disappeared (intestinal bleeding and fissures) and I was beginning to mend quickly. After one month, I feel so much better, even forgot about thanking you! I’m so glad you emailed. It’s so easy to forget when the pain disappears. I am now taking Slippery Elm, Marshmallow Root, Flax oil, Olive Leaf, and CoQ10. I decreased the dose of Cape Aloe I was taking and have decreased my carbohydrate ingestion slightly. I was already on a pretty strict low carb gluten/dairy/sugar free diet, but knew I had to tweak it more in order to get well. Especially after losing 10 pounds in 3 days with the flu (on my already thin 135 5’10” frame, it was a little scary!) Thankyou again for helping me reach a better level of health!

J.D., USA[Jini] Everything seems to be helping. I definitely feel better, but still not back to 100% vitality. I booked an appt at the Goldberg Clinic in March, so hopefully, following your protocol before then will continue to help. The Oil of Oregano certainly has helped, and I am starting the Natren probiotics today (I had some floragen that I finished up before ordering the Natren).
So far so good! I am so grateful for your work in this area, and I am certain you have saved me from a longer and more protracted illness.

C.C., Australia[What] The Wild Oregano Oil is an absolute god-send for mouth ulcers. I had tried so many different things for these that had made no difference at all. The WOO cleared them up really quickly. I also had some infected cuts on my fingers and I used it on them with great results.

N.R., USA
I loved your [Jini] book, very informative. My husband has Ulcerative Colitis and your book has assisted us in beginning his natural healing process. Thanks so very much for sharing such valuable information with us for free. Your website is excellent as well and the OIl of Oregano is a God Send for our family. That stuff is truly amazing!

J.J., USA
I found your [What] book to be excellent! It is easy to read, very informative, and I enjoyed learning about oregano oil. I have been taking your oil of oregano for a few weeks now, and have found it very helpful to me.

G.G., USA
I wish I had read it [What] 5 years ago!!!
After my 1st colonoscopy (5 years ago), it resulted in about 6 days of pain. Said I’d never do it again. This past December during intestinal issues, the docs suggesed a colonoscopy and cat-scan to confirm it ‘wasn’t anything serious’. Well… the following day I was in a fetal position in terrific pain. After my own in-depth research, which included your books, I’m confidant it’s a long-term overgrowth of candida as there have been so many of symptoms present over that time-frame.
In 2013 besides the colonoscopy, I had 2 surgeries along with medications. I’m sure the colonoscopy wasa the final straw, causing the brutal IBS/IBD onset for weeks. It’s only been since starting your Elemental Diet with the Absorb Plus that the intestinal pain and ICV pain has nearly disappeared. When I cheat, it lets me know it’s still there so I’m planning on staying on the diet and with full intention and belief, heal completely.
As a side note, after the colonoscopy, all 3 docs (who were in communication) all said the pain was ‘probably yeast’. Yet none thought of telling me to get on probiotics. I took some on my own accord, but not a high enough strain.
I seriously doubt I’ll have another colonoscopy for the obvious reasons but also the radiation. Thank you for the book and sharing your wisdom. I’ve shared your site and names of books with many friends, family and my holistic healers.

L.G., Canada
I can tell you that just from reading [Jini] a little bit and raising my feet up on a block has assisted elimination greatly! And I know, just by reading your stuff and by following a few simple guidelines, I believe it is already beginning to recede and heal.

S.C., USA
I found the information [What] both informative and alarming because of the poor sanitary/sterilization process. Initially I was reluctant about having a colonoscopy and endiscopy procedure done bc I feared losing the good bacteria with the bad. Now there is more to be concerned about. I enjoy reading all your material greatly. I feel they are well written and supported by excellent scholarly journals.

S.B., USA
I downloaded and printed the information [Natural] for my Aunt who experienced the condition. She does not use the internet. Of course I read the book and watched your video. I was amazed (at 51 years of age) to learn the proper posture for using the bathroom!! Amazing that I never heard it and it certainly makes a difference! Thank you.

S.C., USA
Thank you so much for your anal stenosis video. It is changing my life. If only someone could have figured this out when I was three… but it is never to late. You are brillant and generous to share. I’d been existing on coffee, cigarettes, then laxatives and finally psyllium for many years but illness continued to progress to a critical state. I went cold turkey from the psylium after seeing your video and things are moving right along though as yet nothing is formed, I am hopeful that will improve. A tilted rectum must have been the problem all along. May God richly bless you, as I see He has.

J.A., USA
I am delighted to report that your competent suggestion, demonstration and explanation of prolapse [Natural] saved me from procedures or surgery that included an extensive list of “potential” side effects. I am skipping vs fearing stepping to any location including both the bathroom and the bank.

M.J., USA
I read your [What] report and found it very informative. After reading it I realized that what my body was lacking was the probiotic. I went out my health food store and picked some up. I have been taking it now for 1 week and have noticed a huge difference in the way I feel. I still am not having daily bowel movements, but I am not experiencing the pains I had before. Thank you for showing concern, I sure appreciate it.

S.H., USA
Thank you for the information [Rectal]. I did do several things in there that was helpful. I appreciate you all very much for doing this. Doctors do not even help this much. Your care and concern for others is deeply appreciated. I went to the urologist (specializing in female problems). After she examined me she said it wasn’t a rectocele but levator spasm, puborectalis syndrome. The suggestions you made still are good for this. She sent me for therapy and I hope it works. I have had this problem for more than 20 years on and off. I am happy to have a diagnosis but not happy that it took this long to find this out after all these years. I just hope that I can be helped. I am squatting and that helps. I am doing several things that you suggested. I just got some castor oil this week. I am taking the supplements that you suggested too. Thank you very much.

R.S., USA
I found the [IBS] information very helpful. I am still in the process of diagnosis and am starting pancreatic enzymes next week. Your information got me through a very rough time for the past couple of weeks. Thank-you.

F.C., USA
I loved the [Candida] interview. I used the lecithin for the constipation and it helped. I will continue to purchase Absorb Plus as it blends well with everything in the smoothie.

G.T., Canada
I got this ebook [Jini] to become more familiar with the use of DMSO for healing my fistula as recommended on your blog related to healing fistulas naturally. It certainly had lots of information about handling DMSO, administering it and what ingredients I should be using in Formula A. So yes, it was quite helpful even though it wasn’t directly addressing the issue of healing a fistula (I got that from your blog).

Thanks for the information and your help. It’s good to be able to explore approaches to healing that promise the possibility of full healing. Otherwise I’d be stuck with my Gasterenterologist’s prediction that I’ll end up on Remicade. I’m not particularly keen on that outcome.

B.P., USA
Whenever I do the Rectal StrictureHeal, I try to listen to the Guided Connection audio as much as possible. Usually, I do Rectal StrictureHeal protocol every day, then the Guided Connection 2-3 times a week.

I have found the audio to be very helpful in totally and completely relaxing both my body and my mind. The audio creates a very soothing and peaceful visual while I do the castor oil pack right after the Rectal protocol.

Overall, the audio has been very helpful during the Rectal StrictureHeal protocol. I’ve only been on the 40% solution for a little over a month, so I have a ways to go. But I have already noticed small changes here and there (general softness/flexibility in the area, hemorrhoid almost completely gone).

These protocols have been wonderful in my healing journey! Oh, and your Absorb Plus shakes are amazing (French Vanilla all the way!). I’ve been drinking nothing but those for the last three months, and they’ve given my gut the break/rest/healing it’s desperately needed for quite some time now. It feels so good finally being able to heal yourself from the inside, out!

Thank you again!

H.R., USA
I bought all the components for Stricture Heal and mixed them and began using them. Then I did more research about DMSO and decided to try just mixing that with Oregano Oil (diluting it with olive oil) and applying it with fingers to my anal fistula. I figured it would penetrate the tissue without the ordeal of using the dropper. The fistula does seem to be closing both by the anus and through to vaginal wall. The cyst at the anus doesn’t seem to have changed but I am giving it time. I am also taking DMSO – 1 Tablespoon of half DMSO half Aloe Vera internally. It seems to be helping my RA and my gut. I also follow the simple diet – dry curd cottage cheese, fresh apple juice gelatin (I just got the Great Lakes gelatin which I’m liking) are some stables.
Thanks for all the research you do and for your great site. I have to admit that I am often overwhelmed with the amount of information you put out that pertains to me.

P.K. Nevada, USA
I have been anxiously awaiting to share my experience. In the midst of trying this ‘miracle concoction’ (which is what I’ve dubbed it)[StrictureHeal] life got incredibly busy and challenging. Let me go back and give a little history…
At the age of 12 when I first started my menstrual cycle I was diagnosed with endometriosis. It started from the very beginning and by the age of 15 I had my first laparoscopy, my 2nd at 16, 3rd at 17 and my first major surgery at 18 years of age to see if there was anything they could do to relieve the excruciating pain I experienced every month. I was even a ‘specimen’ at Johns Hopkins as one of the youngest to experience severe endometriosis. Unfortunately, they couldn’t do anything but scrape what they could in hopes that that would help. It didn’t. Because when the doctor ‘got in there’ he found there were masses of the endometrial tissue surrounding my rectum and he wouldn’t risking it at my young age of 18. The next 32 years would include giving birth to 4 babies, a full pan hysterectomy and severe difficulty with bowel movements. Apparently there was so much scar tissue around the bowel that even being ‘gutted like a fish’ I would still experience severe pain every time I went. I started to bleed with every bowel movement. The weird thing was my stools were not hard. I was/am so faithful to take fiber daily. I described to my husband; it just seems like my hole is shrinking…and like the exit is closing because once I start going, I’m okay. But the exit at first is almost enough to make me pass out. I would be covered in sweat just from trying to go. Now to the exciting part….
I used the 20% [StrictureHeal] 3 times….. THREE TIMES!!!!!!! And was no longer crying when I had to go. It completely seemed to dissolve the severe scar tissue that had built up over the years. I’m so thankful to God for finding this while scanning the Internet. Thank you for being so plain and simple in describing the symptoms and also treatment. I had almost given up hope.

R.A. New York, USA
Yes, indeed, the eBook guide for intestinal strictures helped a lot thanks to God. I also took two of my sons to the doctor to do monitoring and resulted with no intestine stricture at all not even signs of Crohn’s disease! I am so happy after more than 5 years they were suffering.
Thank you soooo much dear for helping me and all other people from this disease.
Please keep me updated on any products and healing guide.
May God bless you and your family and I will always pray for you.

N.B. Canada
I started your topical treatment for intestinal strictures about a month ago and the results have been excellent. I suffer from a bowel stricture near the anus. I had a full hysterectomy due to severe endometriosis, in March of 2014. The majority of it was adhered to my bowel and last summer, August 2015, I began to suffer symptoms from the adhesions and scar tissue narrowing my bowel. After a CT colonography, several abdominal x-rays and a flex sigmoidoscopy, my doctors confirmed that it was a narrowing of my bowel and there was no sign of endometriosis or any disease causing the stricture. They felt that any surgery to repair would only cause more damage. Their recommendation was pain management and diet manipulation. By the time I found your treatment, my bowel movements were frequent and the size of a TicTac, causing severe constipation, accompanied by debilitating gas pain and cramping. It was impossible to function during these periods and I was unable to work. The frequency was increasing and I was often incapacitated for 2 to 3 days at a time. I felt that this would only get worse and that pain medication would not help, it would only treat or mask the symptoms. I needed to find a way to heal myself.
I have to say that I am immensely pleased with the results from using your treatment. I will need to continue the treatment for a while but there has been a huge difference already! I noticed a difference by day three and there is improvement every day! I have not had an ‘episode’ since I started about a month ago! I have told several friends who suffer from Crohns and IBS to look up your site and I hope they get results/relief too! I am lucky in that I don’t suffer from those conditions but I was suffering and it had a huge effect on my life though I now feel like I am getting back to normal, slowly but truly. I am thankful that you developed this treatment and hope that you continue your work to help other people find healing and relief.

R.K. USA
I am in the midst of using your formula and have seen significant results. I will continue til I am satisfied. I has helped me a great deal.

A.E. Texas, USA
Jini, I do feel that the book (Jini’s Healing Guide: Natural Treatments for Anal Stenosis and Stricture) has some great information and plan to start the protocol next week. I also love the meditation I ordered. Very helpful. I’ve been hating my body parts and realize I need to care for them and nurture them instead. Thanks.

J.P. Florida, USA
I’m totally amazed with the results (from the StrictureHeal). It has been about 15 days and my stools are thicker, only go once a day instead of 3 or 4 times. You are an angel. Keep up the good work. I will update you later on.

I bought your book for my granddaughter. She is 22 and had to stop work while she sorts out bowel strictures. The gastro enterology solution is a colostomy bag at 22. She is very pleased with your information and is following a strict regime diet, regular colonics and detoxes. I am confident that like you, she will triumph.
Thank you,

Pain is gone, but realize I have much more healing to do. This condition has been with me for many years, and still have some slight residual soreness.
I had adhesions that was further complicated with the rectocele. This entire condition was brought by 3 major lower abdominal surgeries(and probably contributed- 2 childbirths also)
that lessen the integrity of my colon, and created all the scar tissue. But I’m on my way to conquering what had been very frightening and completely depleted my energy. More than grateful for the wonderful help through her research. Thank you for The Rectal Stricture eBook which gave me more tools to know how to heal myself. Her site is a God send to me when there was little out there, but so many surgical procedures and powerful drugs that only treated the symptoms. Like her holistic mind set, which is where I have arrived at going back to a few years ago. Her site is a 5 Star Effort.

I am experiencing remarkable results with the Stricture Heal Protocol. I have actually been able to cancel a “Robotic Surgery” for a resection of the descending colon, that I was scheduled for on April 17th. I know I’m not completely healed yet, but diligently working on it. Encouraging evidence of improvement, after my 7th Treatment! I have done 26 Treatments as of last night, at half strength of the DMSO, but had to eliminate the Iodide after 3 treatments, due to the impact it was having on my thyroid. I am working on the elimination of the Miralax, that I have been on for 3 years, and now have it down to 1 teaspoon a day vs. the 1/2 bottle cap I had been on. I have been doing colonic massage several times a day, and also DMSO Gel (from the same company you recommended for the liquid) a couple times a day, over and above, my 1 or 2 full Stricture Heal treatments a day.
I have been keeping a detailed daily journal of my progress. I have learned so much from your Site, and I am so Thankful for you, and your knowledge in regard. I look forward to the day, that an ultrasound is evidence of my total healing!
I can’t Thank You enough Jini!
I will continue to …… Listen To My Gut !
Your Grateful Friend, D

You are amazing. Just the type of person i was looking for. Well versed on natural healing. Well researched products (you’ve even devised your own). Healed yourself of a serious health condition which is proof of your expertise and protocols and willing to share! I’m so glad i found you.
I wasn’t sure what my condition was. If its stricture, bowel inflammation, transverse prolapse, Morgellons disease. After a barium X-ray of my colon proving there is nothing abnormal and trying many digestive aids, enemas and essential oil supositories. I came to the conclusion I have a weakened ileo cecal valve. Everything I was doing was helping a little, but not enough for me to feel normal and healthy again. i knew i needed more and thats when I came across your website and started reading your recommendations. Listening to your lectures, hearing your own testimonial and researching your products….now i bow at your feet.
I have been on the stricture heal protocol for 4 weeks and am very very impressed with the results. I have a skin rash and I use the topical DMSO solution on and it has greatly improved. I use the oral protocol religiously as recommended with a diet of raw juice. Lots of salads and raw fruit. Some nuts and seeds. NO GRAINS. I also felt I needed the minerals so i got them and the whey protein as i eat no meat. I also take a bowel cleanser with charcoal and clay at night. I am having regular bowel movements this week. My energy and homeostasis is restored. I have vitality and the light is back in my eyes. If you don’t know about Morgellons disease it is characterized by a skin rash and digestive disorders. This is what most complain of and more. It is progressive. Has a variety of other symptoms and is bacterial in nature. Your DMSO protocol is just what I was looking for though i didn’t know such a thing existed.

I am so grateful. I strongly encourage everyone and I mean everyone who has had surgery or not…If you have a digestive issue use the oral and topical stricture heal protocol and you will find relief and genuine healing. Be diligent and be serious about your health. This protocol is remarkable and heals all tissue abnormalities not just strictures.

I have started on Jini’s stricture protocol. She said she wanted to hear from us so here goes.
My background is long and it has taken a decade to put the pieces together. I first found your website in 2014 and got your book and Absorb protein powder. I started learning about super foods a decade ago, thanks to my son and started my path of super foods and cutting out gluten, dairy, sugar and alcohol. (What can I say, I’m a musician and work in a restaurant/bar).
My husband laughs and says “You should be Super woman for all the super foods and supplements you’ve been on for 10 years!”. The better I ate the sicker I got. I knew instinctively it was all gut related but thought it was more candida so I got on the Wholeapproach protocol. Better but not best?
In 2015, I went to Dr William J. Rea’s Environmental Allergy clinic in Dallas only to have him diagnose Hypogammaglobulinemia. It seemed excessive and since I actually have a young friend who DOES have that, I dismissed it. I knew I was not as “allergic” as any of his other patients from all over the world and I had run out of money!
About a year and a half ago, I started having anaphylactoid reactions 1 to 3 times a week. My face would swell up but thank heavens it stopped before having to use an Epi pen. (I have the proof in lovely pictures) I searched Histamines and found Healinghistamine and thru Yasmina’s story. Started on a low histamine/low oxalate diet. (I also started having symptoms of vulvadynia. re:oxalates)

In 2016 i had a hard fall and a lot of medical marijuana fell into my lap in the form of an extraction I put in capsules. I think this saved my life because even though I never had an immediate reaction to Fluoroquinolones, I have since realized I do have fluoroquinolone toxicity which causes all the “allergic” reactions to medicines, foods, anything really.
In 2016 I was hospitalized after a colonoscopy for infection (my absolute downfall). There I was given two rounds (in 2 separate weeks) of Cipro and Flagyl. (My Dr had also told me at that time I would need surgery at some point). As you probably know, as bad as fluoroquinolones are, Flagyl (I later found) wipes the oxalobactor formingenes bacteria out of the gut. The bacteria whose sole purpose it is to munch on your oxalates! By this time I had worked my way up to Dr Terry Wahls autoimmune diet and was eating 6 to 9 cups of spinach and kale etc. I have since found out that all the BEST food and supplements are usually extremely high in oxalates. No wonder I felt horrible!

In the interim I had a DNA test done to find I am an undermethylator. I have the MTHFR SNiP that has everything to do with depression, CNS, etc. Two years ago I lost my job of 27 years, my mom broke her hip, moved in with me, right in time for hurricane harvey then my husband and son were fired (from same restaurant). Mom died last Feb. and I lost my only pain reliever, I became sensitized to my cannabis. Let me say that it is a miracle I haven’t committed suicide. (I am better now!)

I had DMSO and had studied it extensively so I shaved my head (I was wasting expensive oils in my hair) and I started using Dmso and my clinical grade oils on my head for my migraines. It has been very helpful!

Last month my gut stopped finally after slowing for a while. I thought it was the cannabis but now realize that the fluoroquinolones dry up all your mucus membranes. Lord knows you can’t make this crap up? So even though I think I don’t have a stricture I know I have anal stenosis because it comes out like rocks.

I have started the oral DMSO with all you recommend. I make my own Colloidal silver because I am broke. It may not be quite as strong as your brand so I swig a bit more during the day. I am TRYING to stay on liquids but have limited foods left once I take out high histamine and oxalates. So I have just ordered your vegan protein powder and I usually add collagen daily. I cannot have bone broth because it is high histamine as well as cod liver oil so I take Black seed oil which is good for omega3’s and its mast cell stabilizing. I couldn’t get your mucosaheal because slippery elm is extremely high in oxalates. So I got NAG, and DGL and Glutamine as well.

I appreciate your realization that one has to listen to ones own intuition. The voice in my head had already told me to “drink this” (not unlike Alice in Wonderland 😉 but your protocol obviously reiterated that command.

I will say, that when my mom was ill and I was going down that path, I let “junk food PANDORA” out of her box and letting go of comfort foods is much harder the 2nd time around?!

My hubby makes me chicken soup and we freeze leftovers to halt histamines as well as butternut squash soup. I have to tell you, after a couple weeks of your dmso protocol, I am much better. Even when I fail the food fight, my reactions aren’t as bad at all. I will continue the protocol for as many months as I feel I need. When we lost our jobs, we lost insurance so I have nothing to lose and may take Dmso for the rest of my life?

So while I know you would like results from those following your protocol to a T, I can only offer my results from a skewed perspective but I am able to get up and out where I wasn’t before! Thanks so very much!

S.R.,MA, USA
I’ve been using stricture your protocol. You were right to say take it slow in the beginning. I did the full protocol for couple days and made my stomach feel upset. Did it every other day and it seems to be working! I can’t believe it! It’s been about three weeks.

I’ve also added powdered MSM and vitamin C small doses throughout the day. I’ve struggled with this forever 30 years and this is the smoothness my bowels have to run. Thank you for thinking of the rest of us out here and writing everything down and studying on it. Incredible information.

Brenda S.
I have read the eBook, and it was extremely helpful. I have implemented much of what I read, and the massage techniques are wonderful! Thank you very much for this valuable information ~ what a blessing!

Laurel L.
I am happy to report that your diet absolutely works!! It has helped me a lot. I still have the diarrhea but not as frequent as before and not for long periods of time. I followed it as instructed and had immediate relief!! Thank you so very much. I have not seen my gastroenterologist yet but I will!!

Linda L.
Thank you I read it all and do not know what happened but I cured myself with peptobismal, tylenol, colonic massage, aloe Vera, grapefruit seed extract, acidophilus, a little psyllium and some flax oil. I was scared I would have to take antibiotics, but it passed after 6 days. Four inches of my colon have pockets. It might have been too much cheese that set it off – I’m very sensitive to yeast. Thanks for the eBook.

B.L., NSW, Australia
The eBook is helpful. Thank you. It is my mother who has diverticulitis. She is 85 yrs old. I find the information helpful for advising her how to eat. She eats very well and similarly to Jini’s recommendations, but obviously her diet needs to be tightened up in some way as she is still subject to flare ups quite regularly – usually for half to one day, then fine again. It is a bit difficult with her age but we are using the information. I am especially interested in Jini’s emphasis on good fats making up 40% of calories. That is something we need to follow through. Thanks for your information.

Mary J
A big big thank you for sending me this report. It is awesome, and had excellent tips in it. I am healing from an attack of diverticulosis and am at my wits end. I will be buying your product very soon. Kindest regards.

I have tried the colonic massage and it feels good and is helpful.

R.W., USA
I did read the report. It does have useful information. The unpasteurized dairy products are a barrier for me because I have to watch my money and there is none local. I also have the issue of trying to keep my weight up. My doctor also wants me eating gluten free. Lots to balance and consider.
I really enjoyed the thoroughness of the report and have used her massage many times. I bought the book but have not really begun to read it front to back yet. I did buy the oil of oregano but am not brave enough to use it yet. I am having lab work on my stool to see what’s up. That will be in the next couple of weeks. I have not had a flare up since getting her reports/ book (I began searching for infomration at the end of a flare up.)
This is probably more that you wanted to know, but I am so glad to have these resources available to me.

A.H., USA
I really appreciate all the great info Jini has provided. I was in the midst of what I believe was a diverticulitis flare (self-diagnosed) and as soon as possible, I implemented almost all of her recommendations (supplements, diet restrictions, castor oil packs, etc.), just slightly modifying a few things to fit my lifestyle and budget.

I’m feeling MUCH better and have seen very positive results over the past few weeks. I really can’t thank Jini enough for all the good advice she is willing to share for free online!
I also purchased her Listen to Your Gut book and have read it and done the Healing Journey workbook and it is all extremely helpful and informative.

At this point, I don’t really have any questions, just continuing with my treatment plan and making some big changes in my life to get (and stay) healthy.

Thank you!!!

G.L., USA
I have read the report and have implemented the colonic massage as well as using George’s aloe and I have purchased the mucosaheal, oil of oregano, and the natren probiotic. I have found the massage to be very helpful as well as the aloe, not to sure about the other things.

P.C. USA
Yes, I did go through the report, and found it very informative and helpful.
As I was having a bad attack at the time, I employed the massage technique, made the chicken broth, and followed some of Jini’s suggestions of best ways to eat.
I am pleased to report that things are back to being okay right now, and thank Jini for her excellent article.

J.C. UK
I found Jinni’s information on gut health at the beginning of July when on holiday in Italy and suffering from a bout of diverticulitis. It was really helpful as I had not had any real advice on how to manage an attack except by taking antibiotics. The colonic massage saved my holiday as it actually moved something that was stuck and accelerated my recovery. I will now use the massage as part of my daily routine hopefully to prevent further attacks. I also have more information on how to deal with an attack by using a liquid diet and a low fibre diet which was really difficult on holiday. I am now also trying to make bone broth. My grateful thanks to Jinni.

I.S. USA
I found your report most instructive, providing a fuller understanding of what diverticulitis is. It is well laid out with chapter headings instantly providing a link to essential subjects.
Trying to follow specific diets, etc, is difficult. Doubtless if I lived on my own I would benefit more from it as I would have the opportunity to adjust my diet on a daily basis.
I see its main use for me as being a personal handbook for easy reference, reassuring in the sense that it makes on realise just how common this problem is. In my case it has made me institute a much more careful look at what I eat and so relate flare ups to what I have just eaten in the previous 24 hours.
But clearly there is no magic cure.
Thank you very much for the report which I shall keep for future reference.

V.O. USA
It has helped me so much!
Medical field really isnt interested in healing the gut, they have had no answer on how to get me out of pain.
So I implemented the elemental diet,with flax oil, cod liver oil, and a probiotic as suggested. It has taken 4 weeks, but now I think I have turned the corner, thank goodness! I am adding back in solid foods now.
Thanks to the help of the report.

M. E. USA
I was so grateful to find the information by Jini. At the time of my search I had been diagnosed with diverticulitis for the second time. The first time was about 4 years ago. I was frustrated and becoming afraid because I was having difficulty finding information for the treatment that was consistent with my eating practices. I am diabetic and have been successfully treating that disease with diet and exercise but I had no idea what to do about this condition. My doctor had me on penicillin and an anti parasitic but was unable to help me with how to eat. Jini’s book was extremely helpful and I followed a lot of her advice. (Bone broth, probiotics, L glutamine, etc)
I am now working with a personal nutritionalist and rebuilding intestinal lining and slowly working my way back to eating a normal diet.
Thank you for being there when I felt alone.

L.B. USA
I have implemented some of the suggestions. More veges, less carbs and protein, magnesium and grapefruit seed oil daily. So far, so good, so thank you for the suggestions. As you know, Western doctors have no clue as to what to do.

S.L. USA
First of all I would like to thank you for the report based on what happened to you. And how you handled this terrible and painful disease. I found it very interesting and helpful for myself as I recently had a flare up. I follow a lot of guidelines according to what you delivered in your report. Thank you

D.R.W., KY, USA
Just one short month ago I had my first diverticulitis attack and I thought I would die! I ended up in the ER being pumped full of drugs strong enough for an elephant! My daughter got on line and found you! Thank God! Everyone on the planet should buy your book! So much valuable information to not only heal the gut but just great life habits! I’m still taking it real easy with what I put in but one of the biggest helpers you talked about is chewing till paste! Also I’m in group therapy for all the stress in my life! I’ve already told several friends about you that also have gut issues! I’ve also purchased the bone support and elemental shake and love the products!
Thank you for sharing your story and educating the rest of us!

C.L., Idaho, USA
Here is my story. I had just started a new career in nursing working the night shift. I was not able to adjust to sleeping during the day and this caused a tremendous amount of stress and anxiety. I began to have abdominal pain that became progressively worse. After two months the pain was excruciating and I visited the hospital ER three times in a two week period. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in late June, 2011. The GI doctor informed that there was nothing I could do to prevent repeat flare-ups. He gave me a prescription of mesalamine (Lialda, 3 pills each morning ) and told me to take them for the rest of my life. He also said, if the Lialda doesn’t work then he would prescribe steroids and infusions of Remicade and if those failed he was willing to remove my colon.

As a person who has always been very active, eaten right and taken very good care of my health this news did not set well with me. I searched the internet for natural remedies to heal colitis and ordered various programs and books online but for one reason or another I knew in my gut that they weren’t right for me. The following 6 weeks were pure hell, the Lialda was not really working, I dreaded every meal, my weight was plummeting and worse of all I did not leave the house because I was afraid to be away from a toilet.

Through all of my online searches I never came across anything by Jini. Luckily, a friend knew of another neighbor with UC who was following the IBD Remission Diet. This person loaned me “Listen to your Gut” and “The IBD Remission Diet” books. THIS SAVED MY LIFE! I cannot say enough about Jini, the books and the products (especially the Absorb shakes). After reading 35 pages of “Listen to your Gut”, I ordered my own copies and began the elemental diet.

I followed everything Jini recommended and took the Absorb shakes for 5 weeks. The shakes were easy to prepare and tasted good so it was easy to stick to the program. After one week I felt so much stronger and more impressively my diarrhea ended! I had ONE bowel movement in the morning and I began living my life again. I felt great!

As I write this (4 months after being diagnosed) I had to look at my old prescription bottle to remember the drug name and I had to look at the bottles of supplements I was adding to my shakes. You know why? Because my UC is not consuming my life anymore. I have healed myself with Jini’s help. Jini, I cannot thank you enough for all your research and dedication to helping those with IBD issues. I am now on the maintenance phase and know this is something that I can do for the rest of my life because it feels right and it works.

For all the people out there who are suffering from IBD, this is a product you must try. I know this may sound like another gimmick but it’s not. This really worked for me and having my health back is priceless! Thank You.

A.R., New Jersey, USA
About a year ago our seven year old daughter became very ill. She had severe gastrointestinal issues, was suffering from malabsorption, and was very lethargic. We took her to pediatricians, naturopaths and finally a pediatric gastroenterologist who diagnosed her with Crohn’s disease.
We were told that our daughter had a stricture and that because of her inability to absorb nutrients and gain weight she was in serious danger. Blood work showed that she was severely anemic, had high inflammation levels, and was deficient in just about all minerals and vitamins. We had suspected this because for months, despite being fed healthy food and high quality vitamins, she would just lie on the couch or sit in our laps, day after day. She was no longer able to keep up with her friends, run around, swim or play.

The gastroenterologist wanted to put our daughter or Remicade effective immediately. She told us that our daughter would need to be on Remicade for the rest of her life. When we researched Remicade, we realized that this was not the life we wanted for our child. We felt there had to be a better way; a way to get her gastrointestinal issues under control without destroying her immune system and the quality of her life. So we began researching, and that is when we stumbled on Jini Patel’s book, The IBD Remission Diet. Immediately we ordered copies of The IBD Remission Diet and Listen to Your Gut. We read them cover to cover and decided that we would put our daughter on Jini’s elemental diet immediately. The gastroenterologist was against it – she was really pushing the drugs – but we thought we owed it to our daughter to try a less invasive method of healing first. We reasoned that the drugs would still be there later if we needed them, so why not exhaust safer options first? Jini’s diet made sense to us, as it seemed that it was very nutritious. We decided that if we tried the IBD remission diet, the worst that could happen was that our daughter would not get better, but she would not be hurt in any way. The best that could happen was that perhaps we could avoid Remicade altogether.

So we began with three weeks on Jini’s elemental diet. Our daughter subsisted solely on the Absorb Plus shakes, supplements recommended by Jini, and the few legal items that Jini suggests, such as chicken broth, gummy bears, ice pops and sticks of gum. The change in our daughter was quick and drastic. First her pain disappeared. Then her energy levels went up. Then she began to gain weight. Her color returned, her smile returned, and much to our relief, her next round of blood work showed improvement. After the three weeks were over, we gradually began to add solid food back into her diet. We were careful only to feed her nutritious, Crohn’s friendly food – no gluten, no dairy, and mostly organic non processed foods. At first she ate one solid meal a day, and then two. But always, we kept her on the shakes, at least one or two per day, and the additional healing supplements that Jini recommends.

It has been a few months now, and our daughter is thriving. People can’t believe the change in her. Family, friends, and neighbors, all ask what changed. A few months ago our daughter was a pale, exhausted wisp of a girl, and now she can outrun the fastest children in the neighborhood. She continues to drink shakes for half to two thirds of her caloric intake, and she continues to maintain (and sometimes gain) weight. She has tons of energy, and her blood work shows consistent improvement in iron levels, inflammation levels, and levels of other vitamins and minerals. Many blood markers, which were previously out of range, are returning to normal. Our gastroenterologist is astounded and has asked for the name of the shakes our daughter is on, which we gave her. I would not be surprised if she is now recommending Jini’s shakes to her other patients.

We are very thankful to Jini Patel, to Justin Wade, and to everyone in the Absorb Plus family. Without these shakes, I really do not want to imagine the state our daughter might be in.

“I write to say that I am very happy that I managed to find a very good dietary supplement for my mother. She was diagnosed as suffering from ulcerative colitis after loosing 39 pounds in 9 months, (she only weighed about 58kg before) not being able to eat much and had a mild diarrhea. I live in Cambridge, UK, and my mother is in Hong Kong.

Having searched the Web for information for treatment, I came across Jini Patel Thompson’s book, the IBD Remission Diet, which I bought. I was impressed in what she claimed and decided to get my mother to try the dietary method in controlling her disease. When I got to Hong Kong, her doctor already put her on steroid and an anti-inflammatory drug. In the past two months she only managed to gain back 2 kg in weight and was feeling very frustrated and worried.

I decided to let her keep on with her steroid treatment as she seems to be responding to the drug, but use Absorb Plus as a supplementary diet to get her to gain weight. Using the calories chart, which I found extremely useful, I got my mother drinking three shakes per day with the aim of having her gaining a pound every 2 days. Also, I managed to convince her that she also needs a bit more food that is rich in carbohydrates.
As a result, she gained 2 kg in 5 days since she started and her doctor is pleased with her progress and decided to reduce her steroid intake to a much less aggressive dosage. We decided to keep her on Absorb Plus until she has fully recovered the weight that she lost and then reduce the intake to function as a maintenance diet.

In addition, I am very impressed with the professionalism of the service. As I can only stay in Hong Kong for a relatively short period of time. The company managed to deliver the goods to me in time so that I can monitor the progress of my mother with the diet before I leave. I am grateful for your help.”

“I was diagnosed with indeterminate ulcerative colitis over 10 years ago. I have been on 5-ASA drugs (currently Asacol) for all of these years. My flare-ups have become more frequent lately. After my last colonoscopy, my GI Doc tried to talk me into taking steroids. This was not an option for me.

I had read Jini’s books “Listen to Your Gut” and “The IBD Remission Diet” so, instead of steroids I decided to follow Jini’s advice and promptly began drinking Absorb Plus. I drank the shakes for 2 weeks before I started eating solid food again. The transition from the Absorb Plus to food again was so easy.

It was amazing. During the 2 weeks on Absorb Plus, I barely lost any weight (I usually start losing weight right away when I am having a flare), my energy
level stayed consistent and I actually kept up my exercise program. It’s pretty easy to stay on the diet since the shakes are just so good. I spoke with my Doctor about drinking Absorb Plus instead of steroids, and he was all for it.

I still continue to have flare-ups now and then, but I am so relieved after all these years to have a very good source of nourishment to get me back on the right track. Thank you so much for sharing Absorb Plus with those that need it!”

“My son was diagnosed with Crohn’s last summer – at 14 years old he weighed only 75 lbs. He was started on high doses of steroids, along with Pentasa. Since this was a completely new disease to us and we knew virtually nothing, we did everything the pediatric specialist said. It soon became quite apparent this was not working – he still had no appetite, no energy, and couldn’t gain any weight.

On the same day we came home from a Dr. appt. where the Dr. said “diet has absolutely nothing to do with Crohn’s”, and the only thing he could do was increase his medicine (he already was taking 15 pills a day), your wonderful book, “The IBD Remission Diet” and the Absorb Plus Shakes were on my back porch – I’m convinced it was an omen. Almost immediately after starting the shakes, my husband and I noticed a change in him – he lost the dark circles under his eyes, he lost the pale color, he sleeps like a baby, he has so much energy (he is actually acting like a teenage boy should), his appetite is almost normal, and he has gained almost 5 pounds in a month. I love how nutritionally complete they are, too – he is deficient in many vitamins and minerals, and I feel confident that he is getting them from these shakes since they are so easily absorbed. I can’t thank you enough – I tell everybody about you! Keep up the good work!”

D.F., Georgia, USA
I found out in May that I suffered from mild Crohn’s disease after a couple of fun trips to the emergency room. Regardless, my gastro doctor decided that the best way to treat the Crohn’s was with a regimine of fifteen pentasa, five pills three times a day. Now, while pentasa is not a full blown steroid, it is still a steroid, and he indicated this would be the best dosage for ‘maintenance’ of my condition.

“Well, after a few subtle diet changes, I was able to get the Crohn’s to a reasonable state, and even tried the pentasa for a couple of weeks. I hated the fact that I was on these pills! At any rate, I did some internet research on Crohn’s and stumbled across Jini Patel’s IBD books, listen to your gut and the IBD remission diet. I decided I did not want to go the expensive route and try the custom shakes, and headed to absorbplus.com through her recommendation.

I went on the shakes for about a month, and during the course of the month, felt my symptoms vanish. I also added UDO’s choice oil to the regimen, which is some good magic on it’s own!”

“I found the excerpts from Jini’s books online and I immediately went out and bought the books. What she said made so much sense. I have also emailed her and gotten a response since I ordered a bunch of Absorb Plus from you a month ago.

As I was telling her in my letter to her that I was in a very similar situation as she was when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s 5 years ago. I had two children ages 2 and 3 and no family in the city, plus we had just bought a house in a new neighbourhood and I didn’t have a support structure to help out. Anyhow, needless to say, it was very difficult to go through all the symptoms of severe pain, losing weight, etc. I tried the “naturopath route” for a year and a half and didn’t listen to the traditional doctors because I thought I could heal myself through all the “natural remedies” and acupuncture, etc. However, that did not happen, and in fact I was down to 87 lbs. and when I finally went back to the Gastroenterologist he ordered surgery within a week.

Now, I haven’t had problems until a few months ago when I had a severe Crohn’s attack. I did not want to get back into taking the steroids, thinking about surgery, etc. Thankfully I found out about Jini’s books and Absorb Plus. I immediately did a one week cleanse and took nothing but the Absorb Plus with a few added vitamins and flax oil. I felt so good. No one had ever suggested do a “bowel rest” (at least not with being able to drink anything as healthy as the Absorb Plus). I normally have absolutely NO willpower because I love food and especially sweets. I did stick to it and was proud of myself for even doing it for a week. I had energy and I didn’t feel hungry during that week. I also have done “mini cleanses” for 2 or 3 days at a time when I’ve gone “overboard” on my food over a holiday weekend or something.

My good friend was also diagnosed with Crohn’s just weeks ago and I got her onto the books and the Absorb Plus as well. Now we’re both so glad we have something to fall back on if we do have any “attacks” or whatever and instead of immediately going back on drugs, etc. we will follow Jini’s recommended diets, along with the Absorb Plus diet for a while. Thank you so much and thanks to Jini. We will keep you posted!”

“I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 1985. I weighed 175lbs before the onset of Crohn’s. After a couple of stays in the hospital, I got down to my lowest weight of 130 lbs. Since that time, it has been a struggle to put weight on and stay healthy. After resection surgery 2 years ago my weight and health spiraled down once again. We received an e-mail from J. Patel last fall (my wife had read her IBD Remission Diet book). My wife Eileen, suggested I try it since it was an all natural formula created by this author who suffered from Crohn’s herself. Absorb Plus is the only product that suits my physical conditions and has allowed me to get back to 170 lbs. This is the closest I have been to my high school weight since my diagnosis! I have tried many different diets and vitamin formulas throughout the years. Absorb Plus is the only one that has made a significant contribution to my overall well being! I appreciate that greatly. Thank you very much for developing this product.”

“I battled Crohn’s disease for 2 years. During that time I was hospitalized six times, lost 30 pounds, and became a shadow of who I had been. Trips to the bathroom were frequent, bloody, and painful. I was taking so much medication I was swallowing 20 pills a day. I became depressed and started to lose hope that I would ever lead a normal life again.

I started drinking Absorb Plus about six months ago after reading The IBD Remission Diet. It was the only nourishment my body seemed willing to accept. I drank 3-4 shakes a day, gradually went off all my meds, and began to absorb more food as my colon healed. After six months of shakes I am finally myself again. I regained the weight I had lost, am bursting with energy, and I’m laughing again. I still drink Absorb Plus as a morning shake because I love the taste and it’s a great way to start the day.”

“I was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis a year ago and have lost 2.5 stone in weight since then. I was 8 stone and went down to 5.5 stone at 5 ft 3″. It hurt too much to eat and what I did eat was pureed vegetables and rice that contain hardly any calories. So as you can imagine, I wasn’t putting any weight on.

I tried other protein drinks, some were awful in taste and others contained too much sugar and artificial preservatives and flavourings. Nevertheless I persevered but just did not gain any weight.

I first heard of the Absorb Plus shakes in The IBD Remission Diet book. Since I began consuming the shakes I put on half a stone so am up to 6 stone now. I have more energy now and my doctor as well as friends have commented that I have a lot more colour in my face.

I have recently had another flair up and so am going on the elemental diet knowing that I won’t lose any weight this time.

Thank you so much, I don’t know what I would have done if I had not found this product. UC sufferers have a lot of worries, one being weight loss and malnutrition and I’m sure a lot of people would agree that it is one less worry for them.

Also I am going on holiday soon and will be carrying the shakes with me….and will be annoying the stewards on the flight as I’ll need to mix my shakes in their work area!”

“Now 45 years old, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 1980. Apart from the first 30 days after diagnosis in 1980, I have remained drug-free. have never had surgery. The disease has manifested itself as a series of very small strictures (2mm in some cases) in my small intestine. These obstructions, along with mal-absorption of protein, calcium, iron and other nutrients have caused much suffering in the form of intestinal pain, gas, weightlessness, fatigue, edema and mood-swings. With some difficulty, and with patience from family, friends and employer, I have been able to lead a relatively normal life resulting in a career, marriage and young family. Knowledge of my own body and its needs along with strict adherence to the Specific Carbohydrate Diet by Elaine Gotchall for over a decade are the two most important aspects of maintaining my relatively normal life. In addition, rest, flexible work schedule and awareness of stress play an important role. Small things like wearing clothes without a waistband and lying down on my right or left side for 10 minutes (the choice of side depends on how I feel) actually make the difference between functioning in society or withdrawing in pain and suffering.

One tool (weapon) I use is to fast for a day or two when my intestine gets blocked and I can’t unblock it. This of course leads to malnutrition and weightlessness and is not a way to achieve long-term improvement however it lets me survive in the short-term. After reading Ms. Patel-Thompson’s books and experimenting, I have experienced good success using Absorb Plus as a complete food replacement and as an alternative to fasting to give my intestine a rest while still feeding myself. The results have been good, even with some weight gain. I use twice the amount of liquid recommended in the form of 50/50 rice milk and water mixed with Absorb Plus so that I maintain a good liquid intake.”

I’m 51 years old, and was diagnosed with IBD approximately 5 years ago. I also had a minor heart attack approximately 6 years ago. I had a stent put in my right coronary artery. Luckily, I had little to no heart damage. I have had high blood pressure for years controlled with prescription drugs. I’ve also had high cholesterol and high triglyceride numbers. No matter what I’ve done, I haven’t been able to lower these numbers.

I haven’t had dairy in years due to lactose intolerance, and watch everything that I eat. All of the above at least seems to be genetic. I’ve never smoked, don’t drink coffee and have had no alcohol for years. Many in my family have had similar health problems. My father died at the age of 50, and he was a physician. In spite of the above, I’m in excellent physical shape and certainly look quite healthy. I work out regularly and, as I said ,eat right, but again I thought it must be my genes.

My IBD had finally been under control as a result of using some of the suggestions in Jini’s first book (Listen To Your Gut) that I’d purchased a year and a half ago. Those suggestions are the use of L-Glutamine, NAG and a carefully controlled diet along with the physician prescribed drug Colazal. Colazal had not worked as a sole remedy for a few years.

In August of this year, I had a terrible flare up that I could not get under control. I bled excessively and could not figure out what I’d done differently. Prednisone seemed the only answer, but I’d had some bad side effects from it in the past. My regular regime of L-Glutamine and Colazal was not working. I checked your web site and purchased Jini’s new book, The IBD Remission Diet on different diets and decided that the predigested food diet was my last option before going back to prednisone.

I purchased your chocolate Absorb pre-digested food shakes, and for the next six and a half weeks basically had four drinks, some clear broths and some organic clear juices along with NAG, L-Glutamine, vitamins and Udos oil on a daily basis. I also stopped taking my cholesterol lowering medicine, because I could not believe that this diet wouldn’t have some sort of positive effect on these numbers.

Over a six week period, I had two blood tests and found that my cholesterol numbers dropped from approximately 210 down to 139. My triglyceride numbers dropped from over 200 to 80. I also lost about 22 pounds. I was only trying for 10, as I’ve been trying to drop that ten for a year or more. The blood flow had lessened, but was still coming after six and a half weeks, but the lipid and triglyceride numbers were astounding. I’d also cut my high blood pressure medicine to the lowest dosage given of Procardia, finding this to be enough to keep my pressure under control.

Again, the blood flow had lessened but not stopped, so I checked with my very open minded gastroenteologist at this point. He deduced that my internist had, in giving me amoxicillin three months before for what he thought was a bronchial infection, inadvertently messed up the bacterial flora in my colon. This allowed some harmful bacteria to take over, giving me antibiotic caused colitis. This also aggravated my regular colitis problem. He put me on Flagyl for one week. Flagyl is an antibiotic specific for my bad intestinal bacteria. He then started me on probiotics to replace the good intestinal bacteria. This last step of probiotic introduction is also the next step in Jini’s book for healing my problem.

I currently, on a daily basis, eat two regular meals, based upon the reintroduction diet from Jini’s books, an Absorb shake for breakfast, Udos oil, NAG, L-Glutamine, vitamins, probiotics, Colazal and lots of filtered or bottled water. It is now about three and a half weeks into the probiotic program. I’ve been on Jini’s food reintroduction program for about the same amount of time. I’m not seeing any blood as of about three days ago. I’m 5’10” tall and my weight has stabilized at 172. That’s my college gymnastics competition weight. I get another blood test in about two weeks to see if my cholesterol and triglycerides have remained low.

The combination of all of the above was extremely well worth the effort. I’m convinced that had I known to take only the Flagyl, I wouldn’t be on the road to having my colitis under the control that it currently is. The unexpected cholesterol, triglyceride, blood pressure and weight loss results were amazing . In my estimation, this whole program was easily better and less destructive than the use of steroids to my traumatized system.

“As I said, I still have a chocolate Absorb shake for breakfast. It’s my favorite flavor. I find them most satisfying and filling. I just reordered enough for the next few months. My internist was so impressed by the Absorb product and probiotic program that he has suggested this regimen to some of his other patients.

I can’t thank you enough for your products, your research and your supportive books. If I may be of any help to another person with this problem in any way, please feel free to contact me. I know how frustrating this process and the problem can be. You have to be patient, but this program works!”

“I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 10 years ago, I was 27 at the time and the specialist asked me if I had a good health plan because I was going to need it. Stunned and uninformed and refusing to go the “drug” method I began the journey of naturopaths, homoeopaths and trial and error. I submitted to drug therapy within 18 months, in an emergency room as I lay in the bed in tremendous pain and bleeding with no control, I felt I had no choice. Asacol was my constant companion.

I work in the film industry, 16 hour days and heavy stress load for months on end have finally taken its toll, by this last April my body couldn’t hold its self together anymore and I was bleeding non-stop, with massive cramping and pain when I ate something. With a life style change ahead of me I knew I had to do something fast, I was on 8 Asacol a day and the bleeding was getting worse, I was afraid to go back to the doctors because of the Steroid threat. Through divine intervention I was introduced to Ms. Patel Thompson’s book and Absorb Plus! My life changed from then on, drinking 3 shakes a day, with no other food I continued the diet faithfully. Within 6 weeks I stopped bleeding, after a year of bleeding! I’m now on 2 Asacol a day and I haven’t bled since, I tell everyone about Absorb Plus, health food stores, naturopaths, homeopaths basically anyone who is interested in helping those of us with IBD. Absorb Plus saved my life! I now have the energy, wellness and the confidence which has been provided by knowing there is truly an alternative to “drug therapy” has brought me a tremendous peace of mind, Absorb Plus will be a part of my life forever, my partner and I are currently trying to start a family and Absorb Plus has given me the confidence to pursue our dream.”

“Following the recommendations of Jini Patel-Thompson’s book, “The IBD Remission Diet”, I decided to undertake a six-week elemental diet using Absorb Plus. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 11 years old (I’m 27 now) and had managed to control the disease fairly well on my own, with minimal medical intervention, until a couple of years ago. Then, in 2002, I developed a dermatological complication called pyoderma gangrenosum, which resulted in erupting welts on my legs that were so painful, I couldn’t even stand up. I was put on Prednisone, and other immuno-suppressants, to control the skin lesions. I have tried several times to wean myself off Prednisone, but my body is now pretty dependant on it, and I would experience nasty flare ups, both in my gut and on my legs.

I have been reluctant in the past to try elemental diets, not only because they seemed difficult to maintain, but because the quality of the products seemed very poor. Most mass-market elemental shakes contain high-fructose corn syrup and other unhealthy ingredients, and they taste awful. I am happy to say that I have been consuming Absorb Plus exclusively for 5 weeks now, with plans to start re-introducing solid food in a week’s time. I won’t say that it’s been entirely easy, but I find Absorb Plus to be delicious (I mix half Vanilla, half Chocolate) and I am confident that I am getting good nutrition from a quality source. I continue to wean myself off Prednisone, and am looking forward to being drug free very soon. Absorb Plus has been an invaluable tool in my ongoing quest for good health.”

“After being diagnosed one and a half years ago with indeterminate ulcerative colitis, I tried the full range of conventional 5-ASA drugs (salofalk, asacol, pentasa) but experienced no improvement at all. In fact, some of the drugs worsened my condition. I also tried a number of natural therapies, including restrictive diets such as the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, a wide range of supplements, and bodywork therapies, all of which helped me somewhat, but which I felt did not go far enough toward getting the disease under control.

I decided to try The IBD Remission Diet using Absorb Plus after the onset of a sudden, nasty flare that also resulted in painful swellings on my legs called erythema nodosum that made it difficult for me to walk.

I learned about The IBD Remission Diet after having read Jini Patel Thompson’s Listen To Your Gut. Although initially I felt skeptical about my ability to stay on a completely liquid diet for any length of time, I decided that it seemed like a much better – and safer – option than the ones my G.I. was offering in the form of steroids and immuno-suppressive drugs.

I followed the diet for two and a half weeks then tapered off the shakes gradually over the course of another one and a half weeks. Within three days of beginning the diet my erythema nodosum began to disappear, and although one does experience some “urgency” as a result of this diet being all liquid – the nearly intolerable urgency I had been experiencing beforehand went away as well. During the course of the diet I never felt hungry, enjoyed the taste of the shakes and was full of energy. I was able to put on and maintain needed weight and was amazed how little self-discipline it took to stay on the diet. I actually found I enjoyed the break from planning menus, shopping, cooking and cleaning up!

Within the first week of returning to solid food I experienced the first solid bowel movements I had had in almost a year. My digestion was quiet and painless and food was properly broken down. My energy levels stayed up and my weight has stayed on.

The IBD Remission Diet has been a dramatic, positive step forward in what I see as an ongoing healing process. Although I may experience flares again in the future, the fear factor is almost gone now that I know I have a powerful tool for managing them that will not cause horrible side effects or damage my immune system. I still consume the shakes on a regular basis, mainly for health and nutritional reasons, but also because I really enjoy them. I would highly recommend this diet for anyone with gastro-intestinal problems or anyone seeking a balanced, natural approach to long-term health.”

“Having recently undergone the second of two major surgeries for severe ulcerative colitis, I decided to follow The IBD Remission Diet for two weeks with the goal of restoring balance to my gut, losing some weight, and generally “detoxifying” my system.

Absorb Plus is a terrific product and I felt great the whole time I was taking it. The immediate outcome was a reduction in my cravings for caffeine and other stimulants, a huge boost in energy levels, and the loss of an unwanted 12 lbs, which has stayed off. Since my surgeries, I have been prone to painful blockages. After following The IBD Remission Diet, my digestion has vastly improved and I have had no blockages at all. This has led me to question whether my surgeries might even have been averted had this elemental diet product and program been available to me earlier.”

I have been suffering from chronic constipation, heartburn for the last 20 years. No bowel movements without the help of laxatives. I had food allergies of all kinds that I was only eating vegetables. i was losing weight and going unhealthy. So I read the IBD remission diet and decided to give it a try.
I implemented the diet for 8 weeks. I started Feb 22, 2012 and ended April 17, 2012. Its been 10 days but I can see that the heartburn or acidity is completely gone. I am having bowel movements without the help of laxatives. when I started the diet I was only 119.8 pounds, end of the diet I was 130.2 pounds!!!

I was always cold, that is gone. My craving for sweet is gone. My energy level has gone up. I couldn’t exercise before because of chronic fatigue but during the diet which is the 11th day into the diet I started exercising and now I am continuously going to 24 hour fitness, gaining some muscles :). I don’t feel bloated or have any gas issues now.

I did the wild oregano oil protocol during the diet. I am sure that killed a lot of bad bacteria, which I could feel in my body. I know a major healing has taken place. now I need to maintain it.

Thanks a million to Jini. Now I know why God led Jini through Crohn’s, so she could develop a diet for her and millions who is suffering of various ailments. I am still looking into EFT to make sure it doesn’t have any conflict with my faith. I might have to continue a semi elemental diet for a long time. the only thing that is bothering me presently is sinus or allergy problems. I couldn’t see an improvement for that.

I thank God for Jini and her diet. I would recommend the diet to anyone who is having similar issues. The diet is the best thing that happened to my health in the last 20 years. I hope Jini would be able to develop a completely dairy free diet.

N.P., California, USA
I would like to tell you that I have recommended the book to at least fifteen people and have helped many others with their journey too.

My daughter had her colonoscopy a week ago and the doctor was surprised that she is clear. When I admitted to him that we have stopped all medication and started on Jini’s protocols he was horrified and suggested that what I have done is similar to witchcraft!

I am so grateful to Jini and the book and all your help at LTYG.

My husband has had crohns for ten years controlled with Asacol until this past year when he was experiencing increased symptoms. He was feeling so unwell and felt that his medication was even making it worse. When I found Jini Patels site on the internet he was very skeptical but after much persausion he decided to give it a try.

After four weeks on Absorb Plus, taking mucosaheal , oregano oil and aloe vera he has been feeling the best he has felt in a year. He is not taking any Asacol at the present time, eating a fairly normal diet with the exception of dairy and wheat which we plan on introducing a little later. He still has a little soreness in his lower abdomen but no cramps, explosive BM’s, nausea etc. that he had before. He was able to gain back the weight he had lost.

We were very sorry to get no support from our gastroenterologist or family doctor who did not want to hear anything we had to say about an elemental diet even though he is feeling so much better. We have been seeing a naturopath who is helping us and is more supportive. My husband still takes a shake every so often between meals, he uses the no sugar added shake because he is Type 11 diabetic controlled with diet, it never did raise his sugar very high. So thank you Jini for this program it really helped my husband ! Giving the gut a rest and time to heal was exactly what he needed and he would do it again if necessary.

G.T., Canada
I quite liked it. The chapters on healing fistulas, the dangers associated with colonoscopies and generally comparing your approach to the GAPS approach were quite helpful.

C.G., USA
I’ve loved both books from you. Found that drinking fluids you recommended & eating VERY lightly a couple days, while using the Probiotic & taking PLENTY of Vitamin C, followed by drinking lots of water, exercising by walking & also employing the sort of “Wurn” technique you demonstrate in videos, has really helped me a lot. Probably 50% better. Thank you.

I used the IBD Remission Diet book, reading parts of it more than once, some parts several times and have found it very helpful. Loved your detailed information about each item I ingested so that I knew why it was important.

I followed the diet on page 166 having four shakes per day for six weeks, gradually adding food the next few weeks. I still have at least one shake per day. In fact, I look forward to one every morning for breakfast. And it is so easy to make.

What I found helpful in preparing the shakes was to scoop the flavors into one dozen 1/2 pint jars, then empty the capsules, CoQ10 etc. into each jar (only the dry ingredients), put the lids on, ready for emptying into a larger container when mixing with water and Udo oil. That way I didn’t have to measure everything each time I wanted a shake. I had three days of 4 shakes each day mostly ready. Just needed to add oil and water!

After eight weeks of mostly the shakes, I was afraid to introduce much food for fear I would regress.
The MetaCleanse has been great in stabilizing bowl movements. I am now back on a very healthy diet. I have gained the weight back (had gone down to 97 pounds) and I feel terrific. Thanks so much Jini for your Listen to Your Gut program! The Gastroenterologist had told me I would be on drugs for the Lymphocytic Colitis the rest of my life. I have heard that the body is created to heal and I did not give up. Thank you Jini!

A.A., USA
I am absolutely thrilled with everything I learned from your book! From battling a hard case of Ulcerative Colitis, I was at my ropes end and needed to find a new approach! I managed to maintain a Elemental Diet for 5 and a half weeks and introduced Wild Oregano Oil, as well as flax oil into my lifestyle. I have adopted a much healthier lifestyle since taking an interest in everything you have had to say. Clean eating is a part of my daily life. Gluten/Dairy free has always been a part of my regular regime but now I have fully cut out processed junk!!

I cannot thank you enough for opening up my eyes to the fact that mainstream medicine is not the only way to approach health conditions!! I absolutely love when people refer to me as a hippie when I suggest Wild Oregano Oil or some other tricks I’ve learned from you!!

I have only had one flare up in the last few months. I am completely off prednisone. And hoping to come off Asacol soon!! I do regular healing enemas and am thrilled!!!

Credit to you and all your hard work and determination!!

I am only sorry that I didn’t get your book sooner. It gave me a plan to follow that people could get better without drugs. We are just so brainwashed! If you are sick, go to the hospital. The Drs. will fix you.
Two months ago, my son was told he needed surgery to live. He refused surgery. He is now on some drugs, but seems to be getting better, even as we wean his medication down. He is much more cheerful and has pink back in his cheeks. Without your informative book, we would have had no idea that other options were available.
A few days ago I made a soup with home raised meat(goat). Without thinking, I added a good handful of dandelion roots, plus kale, onions, carrots, turnip, Greek oregano and thyme. You seemed to make such a big deal about your soups, so I gave him about half a cup. It seemed to really help kick start some healing system(liver, gallbladder?). Even just the hot drink was helpful, but I didn’t realize how helpful the cooked out nutrients from so few vegetables could be.
Thank you so much for your outgoing concern.

K.S., USA
Enjoying and finding very useful all your books ! Thanks so much!

J.S., USA
The book is magnificent. It has helped me so much and even though I feel better now I still go to it again and again. Thank you for that labor of love in writing it.

Well, I’m going to give you an overview of my success, I have read all of your books and zeroed in on what I thought were my issues- lack of peristalsis, constipation, rectal strictures and anal fissures and the unbearable pain that went with it and am now having some success.

Because of limited funds, I had to order progressively and determined that I needed to change my diet and add lots of water, I am eating a gluten free diet, I added aloe vera juice, oil of oregano,L-glutamine, mucosa heal, fissureheal suppositories, comfrey cream, then your absorb plus, which I combined with my own protein drink, with pro-biotics, lots of butter, CALM and potassium citrate in am, and Magnesium oxide @ night and sent for DMSO, SSKI, colloid silver, cocoa butter and have been making my own suppositories for stricture heal and hemorrhoids (I have found that the FAT straws work best.) also EFT, Reiki and myofascial release massage, your meditation CD’sfor stenosis and spasms and chakra meditations have also helped.

I have been using an elevated toilet seat and a stool to rest my feet on when I have a bowel movement with success…. who knew all of these things plus a desire to get better has begun to make a difference. I will continue to follow this protocol consistently for continued results. I am a nurse by profession and have been using my intuition to guide me through all. While it is late in the process, I plan to make the bone broths as well.

Thank you very much for all of your information…. despite 2 GI docs, no
remedy had helped so I am most grateful!

K.S., Canada
Book is excellent, best info I ever got. You put a lot of time into it. It must help many peoples out there. One info really help me from somebody else comments ( patients with Crohns are sensitive to much of Vitamin C. ) I was taking 600 to 1200 mg of Vitamin C a day as to reduce an inflamation for last 2 years ( on and off) I had a liquidy stool after that. I thought it was because of my internal fistulas. So when I stopped using high doses of Vit C my stool formation went back to normal. I am in remission now mostly of my food selection ( I found what trigger my flare ups ) Now I can continue work on my projects. So I will get back into reading some more and set up some maintenance diet latter in this year. Thank you.

A.C., USA
Your guide book was very helpful. My son was having intestinal issues and I was able to get him back to health quickly! I’m fairly certain that he does not have IBD, but I also know that he had not been getting proper nutrition. Your information helped me make the dietary changes we both needed in order to get healthy and hopefully prevent the development of any serious disease!

B.F., USA
Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into creating the IBD ebook and all the other materials you have researched to help the many people that visit your site. I find the book very informative and enjoyed it and will use it frequently. Thank you.

J.J. USA
Hi Jini! Yes, I got the guide a few days ago & have read through some of it.. It’s most definitely helpful! I’m new to having IBS (ulcerative colitis to be exact), so I’ve been researching all that I possibly can — everything from what it is & how it acts up, to everything you can do to get & hopefully stay in remission as long as possible! Your guide has absolutely made a big part of the learning much more simple, instead of spending hours in front of my computer or phone screen, just typing away on Google.. Lol! Thanks a lot!

I have been reading your work for about one year. I purchased the “Listen To Your Gut” book (the big book), read the Natural Treatments book, downloaded the IBD Remission Diet book, had it printed and bound and I am just beginning to read that. Tried the Absorb Plus samples you sent – thank you very much – it works well in my body.

For about 1 year I have been on Remecaid, because it was the best choice after an initial dx of crohn’s by the doctors in May of 2016, after 5months of LOA from work and many tests. In desperation I was willing to try the Remecaid, avoiding the threat of a ‘double surgery’ colostomy (No!!!). I have another small complication I do not want to discuss here, but the Remecaid has helped me function and I have finally begun to gain back almost all of the 20-24 lbs. I lost last year (normal weight 126; went down to about 102, maybe lower, at my worst last year). Now I am up to about 120!!! Thank God! Last year I told my GI doctor about you and the Wild Oregano Protocol and they asked if I was doing it already. I said no, (I was just beginning the research), but that I wanted to move in the direction of a more natural healing plan that had the potential to heal me, not just maintain “for the rest of my life”, and that I would definitely confer with them before I started any new program.

I am 71 years young and was in excellent shape,working 40 hours a week at a job/vocation I enjoyed (but stressful on deeper levels I was not aware of), also working on a Masters Degree part time and halfway through the program when my body came to a huge halt in January 2016: I am now retired and let go of my school work in order to pursue my healing very pro-actively, and also in the process of major detoxifying of my apartment. Although I started out in good physical condition, I am more senior than most I’ve read about and am concerned about switching over to natural track – I have more research and reading to do but taking small steps in preparation. I appreciate your emails and this is the first time I have shared any of my story.

I am an Indian. I tried your remission Diet and follow the steps of a healthy gut. With in four weeks I got extremely unexpectable results. No stomachache, no cramps and less blood lose in stool…but there is a problem with me, my age is 35 years and weight 35kg. So I could not try only liquid diet so I tried semi solid with liquid diet. Also took chia seeds, flax seed, aloe Vera juice and two more things one is bee propolis and another is forever lite ultra. the results is no weight loss and the energy level is not decrease…..In a nut shell I would like to say its amazing.
Thankyou so much Jini.

I’d like to give you an update on my husbands progress. It’s hard to believe, but he definitely turned a corner last week and we are seeing some huge improvements! Bloating, gas, and cramps have all ceased and, after several weeks on the IBD Remission Diet, he is finally eating foods comfortably. Even having some normal bowel movements (which is something he never thought he’d see!).

I would like to share some of the things that have helped Tom make such great progress:

– Moving very very slowly in introducing new foods, eating more fish than ever as it seems easier to digest.
– Continuing Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol, and taking Natren Probiotics three times per day. Also did the retention enema.
– George’s Aloe Vera, along with all supplements recommended at LTYG
– Nightly abdominal massage along with reflexology on his feet (this has made a huge difference in gas/bloating)
– Weekly cranial-sacral therapy (can’t say enough about these!)
– NAET (Nanputripad’s Allergy Elimination Treatment) to address food sensitivities
– Nightly Castor oil packs (from stricture heal protocol)

After 35 years of trying to manage Crohn’s Disease, we have never seen such an improvement in my husbands health. Words cannot express our appreciation for all that you have done to make this possible. Thank you for the support and methods and tools available through LTYG. God bless you all!

Your IBD remission diet book was so instrumental and encouraging for my healing process.
I have completed the elemental diet, doing great, still continuing with the stricture healing protocol- I actually could feel a strong pinch on my side when I was first diagnosed with the intestinal stricture, now my pinch is a slight pinch- seems that the stricture is softened or possibly being dissolved.
I truly appreciate your blog and all the positiveness you share with us.

I am more than happy to give you feedback on Listen to Your Gut – the book that, I believe, saved my husband’s life. After 35 years of trying to manage Crohn’s Disease nutritionally (without medication), my husband’s body was giving out. From 2002 through 2016 he had been on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, experiencing some relief along with flare ups and a few partial bowel obstructions. Strictures from an original bowel resection back in ’82 finally brought us to a crossroads in January/2017. We knew how seriously ill my husband was when he lost more than 25 lbs. He was becoming weak and lethargic. I read both books, Listen to Your Gut and the IBD Remission Diet, in order to learn everything, I needed to know about Jini’s protocol. Some days I felt I was on overload as I cared for my sick husband while formulating a supplement schedule to follow. (I’m attaching a copy of my schedules for you to see.)
He began the IBD Remission Diet with a partial Elemental Diet for 4 weeks (the only food he ate was chopped chicken, fish, applesauce, and squash). During this time we slowly introduced all the recommended supplements. By the week 4, he was ready to go full elemental, consuming 6 Absorb Plus shakes per day. He felt good. No cramps, gas, or bloating. His bowels were loose, but we understood that was part of being on a liquid diet. All of his life he has been unable to take supplements, but now he was tolerating Calcium Ascorbate, Quercitin, Grapeseed Extract, Vit. E, Vit. D, Natren probiotics, Joy of the Mountain oil of oregano, George’s Aloe Vera Juice… and everything worked very well! We were excited and hopeful for the future. I referred back to both books on a daily basis, constantly refreshing my knowledge of what to look for and what to do if we hit a snag. And we did hit a few snags and had some setbacks. I “chatted” online with Cris at LTYG.com, and even phoned in on more than one occasion. Always, I received encouragement and the assurance that we were not alone in this journey! At Jini’s suggestion my husband began having Cranial Sacral Therapy and also NAET Allergy Testing. He also does nightly castor oil packs over his stricture area and I perform abdominal massage along with some reflexology. This definitely seems to be softening the stricture and helping things to pass. He has also benefited from Hemmorheal – wow, that worked almost immediately and he was so grateful! But most important, he has been working through some deep emotional issues that he feels sure has contributed to the disease process all these years. That perhaps has been the hardest part of this recovery, but a necessary part all the same. All I can say is that much, much prayer has gone into everything we are doing, and the results speak for themselves.
I would say the only difficulty my husband is having right now is that he has not gained any weight back. Unfortunately, he no longer seems able to tolerate Absorb Plus, which is puzzling because he was on one shake a day for the last two years, and then 4-6 shakes during the Elemental Diet phase. We are wondering if he built up an intolerance to whey, because even when I switched over to Vital Whey, he experienced bloating and pain. Gaining weight back is our biggest challenge. He feels good, but just can’t seem to gain weight. (We also tried Sun Warrior protein, but he reacted to that as well.)
I would like to share some of the things that have helped my husband make such great progress:– Moving very very slowly in introducing new foods, eating more fish than ever as it seems easier to digest.
– Continuing Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol, and taking Natren Probiiotics three times per day. Also did the retention enema.
– George’s Aloe Vera, along with all supplements recommended at LTYG
– Nightly abdominal massage along with reflexology on his feet (this has made a huge difference in gas/bloating)
– Weekly cranial-sacral therapy (can’t say enough about these!)
– NAET (Nanputripad’s Allergy Elimination Treatment) to address food sensitivities
– Nightly Castor oil packs (from stricture heal protocol) Words cannot adequately express our appreciation for all that Jini and the folks at LTYG have done to make my husband’s recovery possible. I truly don’t know if he would be with us today if not for LTYG. Thank you for the support, methods, and suggestions available through LTYG.

IBD Remission Book is a wonderful resource to keep on your nightstand or just take with you on travels but it suits my needs to be able to refer to any day any time. I prefer a book to mark” and highlight” info that is useful for my needs. Jini writes with clarity, insight and gives me what I need to hear and then utilize so my digestion stays on track. Thank you.

I had ulcerative colitis for 15 to 20 years then it lead to rheumatoid arthritis for 2 years. I discovered bone broth and other remedies in your book that gave me LIFE ON MY OWN TERMS back. What can I say about MD doctors they only know what they know.

I love the IBD Remission Diet Book it made me listen to my gut, WOW.

The protocols are doing well for me so far.

A couple weeks before starting your healing regimen, I could not tolerate any food. Each time I ate, I would have terrible abdominal pain and swelling and/or the food would sit in my stomach until I threw it back up.

So I looked into your protocol and made a game plan and bought your products. As the my “start date” of your regimen approached, my symptoms actually started to improve a bit and I was eating without many symptoms (which is typical-my symptoms typically wax and wane- very frustrating)

I completed 4 full weeks of the elemental shakes ONLY (no food) along with the wild oregano protocol with the high dose probiotics, also taking all your supplements.
I am on day 6 of food reintroduction and feeling well. No GI symptoms. But feeling very fatigued and can tell that my GI is much more challenged with the solid food. The shakes just went right through without me noticing but the food is causing audible bowel sounds, sometimes an “sour stomach” type of feeling but nothing like the quality of my IBD abdominal pain. So all in all, I feel well. I think I’m healing, but again, my symptoms were not extremely overt when I initially began the protocol. (And I can usually tolerate healthy organic vegetables anyway, which is all I’ve introduced so far).

So only time will tell! I’m very hopeful I’ll only continue to feel better and better! I’m excited to start phase two with the probiotic enemas, as I believe that will really produce great healing.
Lastly, although I’m off the elemental diet, I’ve found myself craving the shakes still, simply because they are so delicious!! Absorb plus is really a great product! I appreciate you so much for developing that. Thank you!

Hello Jini,

I’ve taken awhile to respond due to the need to truly assess my progress. I was diagnosed in 1999 with mild to moderate Left sided Ulcerative Colitis and immediately started on the Asacol pills and Rowasa enemas. I have flared off and on generally in relation to stress levels and dietary habits. My Gastroenterologist has always criticized me for stopping the Asacol during remissions. According to conventional medical predictions, I should have already developed colon cancer by now. They attribute this to taking the medication but I know its due to my diet. I have been vegetarian since 1995 but not fully organic until this year. I was already experiencing trouble after my colonoscopy in late August of 2016 then I lost my husband to lung cancer in March this year so my stress levels have spiked dealing with the after math. I knew that my Dr would want to try something stronger like steroids this time so I started researching for myself. So glad I found your YouTube video during my search for relief.

I appreciate all the wonderful information laid out in the IBD Remission Diet. The first thing I did was wean off the Asacol but I was not able to take off work. Fortunately, I am able to work from home at least 3 days a week so that really helped. I could not afford to do the elemental shakes so I relied on vegetable juices and soups. That worked fine. I had some mild bleeding which I now know was also due to internal hemorrhoids. I started slowly with the Probiotics and quickly stepped up to full doses. I am now taking Healthy Trinity and have already noticed: less pain during BM and less cramping overall, less urgency, Down from 12 bathroom trips a day to 4. So grateful you shared the knowledge about the quality of the Natren brand. The mucosaheal and Georges Aloe Vera along with the healing enemas have also made a big difference. I also took the Wild Oregano Oil for a couple of weeks. I know I’m on the right track now and will be concentrating on keeping my diet clean and building up my gut bacteria.

Thanks for All your help,

I had to write to express my deepest gratitude for your dedication to helping those find healing for their digestive symptoms.
I must say I have learned more from your site than I have after spending the last 20 months of doctor and specialist visits, numerous ct scans and imaging tests and extensive blood work which produced no help at all.
I’m not functioning optimally yet but although it is slow I think I am making progress. All your products have been great and have delivered what you state.
I really appreciate how you offer other options and recipes for us less financially able which is very helpful.

Thank you again for caring enough to share your success with others to find hope for relief and hope for returning to a functioning adult.

Have had amazing success with this diet. It was very difficult consuming only liquids for awhile but where there is a will there is a way. I’m still taking mucosal heal, probiotics, and a few other things. This resource Jini Patel has created is an absolute miracle. It has provided me with confidence and a sense of control in my life. Having a resource like this to work on problems with IBD is life changing. Also her positive and empathetic videos are up lifting to
say the least. She has a sincere and realistic way of reaching others. I want to thank you for your hard work and amazing strength that led you to this resource.

It is hard to verbalize how grateful I am thank you.

Feedback? I’ve been meaning to write to you, and I’ll keep it simple:

You saved my life.

Two years of hell. Work was almost impossible. Exercise? Not likely. I actually gained weight because I couldn’t do anything physical. Worst of all, I couldn’t play with my two beautiful little boys.

After trying what seemed like everything, I found you. I went on a 30-day elemental diet with Absorb+. After one week, I was feeling better. After that month, I was in what I’d describe as near-complete remission. My doctor was shocked (though she probably shouldn’t have been.)

Four months later, my symptoms still haven’t returned. I’ve been able to lose over 30 pounds. I can exercise and work. I spent last night running through the woods with my kids.

I’m not a religious person, but bless you and thank you. Keep doing your work, it is so important.

I am not normally a “sharer” but will pass on a few personal facts. My personal story is too long for an e-mail, it’s been several years, seemingly millions of tests, and a couple of surgeries. My son bought me your book about a month ago and after reading it twice I began my own experiments with the wild oregano oil and have since begun the probiotic supplements. The results so far are amazing. I know I am far from healed and/or cured but the difference is unbelievable. I still have to watch what I eat – eating fresh or raw fruits and vegetables has been like trying to digest barbed wire and razor blades for so long I’m going to wait a while before even trying, but I am in a lot less pain and my energy level is now close to back to normal.

Please thank Jini and her entire team for their wonderful work. I cannot explain how grateful am for the difference you have made in my life.
