27,000 Bananas and No More Colitis!

July, 2013

Hi Dave,

I would like to share something with you. It’s mainly a giant thank you for helping me three years ago. I had colitis pretty bad and bought your Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s  book. I read it from cover to cover several times and had a consultation with you.

Everything you told me about my detox phase came true except one thing: you told me that I would reach 116 pounds and you were off—I got down to 114 pounds. Pretty darn good call : ) You also said I would regain the lost weight, and you talked about how good I would be feel in the future if I kept up the healthful lifestyle. Everything you said came true and is continuing to stay true.

I’ve been following the diet to the letter except for a few pizza slips in the beginning. I’m now age 50 and I feel better than I ever have felt in my entire life!! No exaggeration!! I usually have awesome energy and feel great.

ImageIt was a long slow process. I earned all of it one meal at a time. I just took up running and I can’t believe that I’m running at all. I was never able to run before without getting so out of breath that I would have to stop. Now I can run a long way and barely be out of breath. It’s unbelievable to me that I finally achieved an endurance goal the other day that I had worked on for three years.

You also gave me a tremendous gift as well, and that was Ryan Pate’s e-mail address. We have been in constant contact with each other ever since I asked him for help three years ago. What a godsend he has been. I have a deep love for him and consider him to be one of the most outstanding people I’ve come across.

“Thank you” just doesn’t cut it. I am so grateful to you for everything that you have done for me and mere words can’t convey my feelings. I’m moved to tears as I write this to you. I’m so grateful for the gift of health that you have shared with me. You also told me that it takes two to five years to fully remineralize the body and I feel like I’m going to continue to get better and better.

Over the past three years I’ve eaten over 27,000 bananas and a ton of other awesome food as well : ) I also have a big-ass garden as well!!

Please accept a giant heartfelt thank you!!

November, 2012

Your book, Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s, is the best book ever written on intestinal health! It is filled with information and facts, not just talk and opinions. I am recommending your book to everyone, as all could benefit from this information. I had severe intestinal tract problems and cured myself using the principles in your book. I am ultra-sensitive to everything I eat and can say that what you have to teach about diet and nutrition is 100% accurate.

“I love you for discovering what heals ulcerative colitis and saving my life. “

July, 2012

I’ve had chronic ulcerative colitis since the age of 11. I am now 49. I have had 17 blood transfusions, was admitted in hospital for up to 2 months at a time and they wanted to remove my bowel at age 11. I said “NO WAY” — thank God! I have been gravely sick with this over the years.

UC has totally ruined my life in every aspect, e.g.: boyfriends, work, traveling, etc. because I am always looking for a toilet asap because of the urgency involved. About 7 years ago I was also diagnosed with a rectovaginal fistula. This was just the icing on the cake for me. Three months ago I had surgery for the fistula.

I was Googling and found Dr. David Klein’s Colitis & Crohn’s Health Recovery Center website and read about how he had chronic UC and healed himself 100% 28 years ago. WOW! After reading Dr. Dave’s story I instantly knew he was the man who I needed to contact immediately. This I did straight up. His story was like reading a miracle. It would be my dream come true if I was to totally rid my body FOREVER of this awful, debilitating, cruel and embarrassing illness I hate.

I ordered his book, Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s and started the “healing phase diet” 8 days ago. I also ceased using mesalazine immediately. (It does nothing anyway, in my opinion.) I feel truly amazing already. In my stomach there is no grumbling and gurgling. My symptoms 8 days ago were signs of active UC: diarrhoea, blood, mucous, urgency. After 8 days the signs and symptoms have gone. I have super increased energy, can think more clearly, look better and feel calmer. I am loving this and cannot wait to be totally free from UC forever.

Thank you, Dr. Dave. You are an angel living on Earth and I love you for discovering what heals ulcerative colitis and saving my life.

Forever grateful,

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in May, 2000. My problems started a few years before this when I mistreated my body by not eating well while under quite a lot of stress. I remember when I was at university and had to attend lectures being unable to sit in a class for even five minutes because I was going to the toilet more and more each day. I found it very embarrassing and I couldn’t explain what was happening. The funny thing now when I look back is that I now know where every single toilet is on the London Underground. The unknown fear of having accidents and not making it in time to a toilet was overwhelming. I saw several doctors about my constant need to go the toilet with bleeding and they told me to stop eating chilies! I did not stop.

In a very sick condition I went back home to my family and saw my family doctor. He prescribed anti-diarrhea medication which did absolutely nothing. The doctor then gave me daily blood tests which showed that my iron level was dropping at a very scary rate. I was admitted into hospital looking as white as a sheet and feeling lifeless and confused. After doing tests and after my first colonoscopy they told me I had ulcerative colitis. My entire large bowel was ulcerated and bleeding.

The first thing they gave me was a blood transfusion. The nurse spilled half of the bottle on the floor. Then followed intravenous steroids which caused me to want to eat nonstop. In the hospital I had my own private room which didn’t feel so daunting as I had a in-suite bathroom, but, nevertheless, I was going through hell. I stayed there about five weeks in total. I remember surgeons coming to chat to me about the possible consideration of removing my entire bowel. I couldn’t ever let them do that. Over time I was put on lots of drugs: prednisone, asacol and Aziathriopine Nothing was working! The consultant recommended surgery which frightened me, so I took new action.

I went home and I Googled “self-help / healing colitis.” Then I came across Dr. Klein’s website. I marveled about how he healed himself and thought I had nothing to lose. I was sick and tired of feeling like this and wasn’t able to enjoy my food because of the pain. I ordered Dr. Klein’s book and started!

It was a shock to go from eating what I called a “normal diet.” I invested in a juicer and, implemented a mostly juice diet and starting eating fruit. I threw away my meds and believed this would work. I didn’t tell my consultant at all. Every time I went back to see him I was a little bit better. I had never done anything as challenging as this. I tried to follow the diet as best as I could.

After a year and a half I went back to see my medical consultant who thought I was taking the meds he had prescribed—I was not. After the examination he told me I had healed—he was amazed, believing it was the drugs. I confessed to him that I hadn’t had any meds for almost two years, and he thought I was lying. He now remembers me as his miracle patient!

I can say that now I don’t follow the diet completely but it really did save me. Thank you Dr. Klein!

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in April of 2011. I was immediately referred to gastroenterological care, but because I lacked medical insurance not a single gastroenterologist where I lived would take me on as a patient. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

I began reading books about my Crohn’s to self-treat as best I could. Typically, I came across three kinds of books on the topic. The first kind recommends getting on with standard modern medical treatments, which involve taking powerful dosages of antibiotics, immunosuppressants, and other drugs. They also recommend things like avoiding fibrous foods and other foods that might exacerbate the symptoms. The main person to seek help from here is a gastroenterologist, who is supposed to be the medical authority on intestinal diseases.

The second kind of book recommends alternative approaches to treating Crohn’s. They recommend different kinds of herbs, oils, supplements, probiotics and macrobiotic diets for people with Crohn’s to experiment with. Many of these books recommend seeing a naturopathic doctor.

The third approach I found was an integrative approach. What is really needed, it is claimed, is proper gastroenterological and naturopathic care, and whatever other care you might feel you need.  Human bodies are unique, they stated, and need to be experimented with, and one who has an intestinal disease cannot afford not to see medical professionals. Gastroenterologists and naturopathic doctors can work symbiotically to maximize proper treatments. One can take dosages of drugs that her gastroenterologist prescribes, and one can also take the herbs, oils, supplements, and probiotics that her naturopathic doctor recommends, etc.  

I dabbled for a week or so with some recommendations that I could get from my local health food store, but these made my symptoms worsen. I did not want to go the modern medical route, and could not anyway due to my lack of medical insurance. Accordingly, the integrative approach seemed hopeless.  

One night I went online to see if there were more books I could check out.  I found Dr. Klein’s book, Self-Healing for Colitis and Crohn’s. As I began reading it I had a feeling that Dr. Klein was speaking truth. There was something about the presentation, the arguments, the Natural Hygiene philosophy that made so much intuitive sense and, perhaps more importantly, made me trust Dr. Klein’s teaching. He had been through severe ulcerative colitis himself, he reversed his condition, and, inspiringly, went on to find true health. This was important for me. He did not, as I had read in so many testimonials in other books, keep his condition in check for a while only to experience future flare-ups or go through what seemed to be the usual cycles of colitis. He was able to reverse his condition indefinitely.  And, the results were immediate.  

I followed Dr. Klein’s advice. Overnight, I became a low-fat, high carb (fruit!), raw vegan, following food combining principles and putting his teachings into practice. On the second day I was eating fruit without pain!  I hadn’t eaten without pain for months!  

Over time, I began to internalize his teachings, and after a month or so I jo longer felt pain in my ileum and the inflammation seemed to have run its natural healing course.  I was able to eat more and more fruit and some tender vegetables. Six months later, as I write this, my health has never been better. I am still following Dr. Klein’s principles and am not looking back!  I have found true health.  

I thank you so much Dr. Klein!  You truly helped me when I was in great need. My debt to you and your work is great indeed.

With gratitude,

I would like to join the hundreds of people who have thanked you for helping me out with your great book, Self Healing Colitis & Crohns.  I had been diagnosed with light gastritis since 2006. Then, during the month of August of this year, I began experiencing an increasing bloating problem. It culminated in a bout of violent vomiting one night and a trip to the emergency room. The doctor, once he saw that I could keep down food, released me and told me to see a G.I. specialist. He wrote the diagnosis “colitis” on my release papers.

I was disappointed with that the G.I. doctor could not see me for four weeks. Suffering and in pain, I took a three-hour trip to San Luis, Rio Colorado, Mexico. The small-town doctor I saw was able to calm my symptoms and help me with some guidance. She put me on antibiotics, anti-diarrhea, lactobacillus acidophilus, and pain reliever pills. I went home thinking this regimen would work. I don’t believe it did.  Now, this is where you come in. 

I was searching online as best as I could, being that I was on the john ever hour for three days! I was so exhausted during those days. After reading pieces of your advice from your website, I dropped the pills and ate only banana, and peeled apples and pears. The bloody stools went away in less that two days! By the fourth day,I was eating solid food with no symptoms of colitis. This was in view of my family who was against a pure fruit diet. 

During week two of the healing stage I had regained my strength. At the end of the week I had an appointment with my doctor in Mexico again to check my blood work and see how I was coming along. The colitis was gone!

I give thanks to God, foremost, and to you, Dr. David Klein for the insight and wisdom of your work. I am now symptom-free and feel great. I have no more morning stomach pains, the bloating is gone and my stomach doesn’t swell or get sour after eating. 

I pray that I can recommend your words and wisdom to any who may come my way and to family, friends, and others. God bless you.

I am writing to let you know how much your diet has helped me heal from Crohn’s disease. I have been following your diet plan since April, 2011 and have had experienced nothing but improvement since then. When I decided to try your diet I was unable to attend university, was struggling to work half-day weeks and spent most of my time in bed. I suffered from painful digestion, stabbing intestinal pains, bloody stools, chronic diarrhoea, potassium deficiency, adrenal exhaustion, gastric reflux, chronic fatigue and chronic dizziness.

After trying all the usual harmful medical treatments, i.e. steroids, anti-inflammatories etc., with no success (in fact, they just made things worse) as well as naturopathic supplements and a high protein and fat diet, I have found your diet plan to be the only 100% successful and side-effect-free way to overcome Crohn’s disease. Moreover, by living more in accordance with the principles of Natural Hygiene I feel healthier and more vibrant than before I got sick!

Eating a diet consisting of fresh, organic fruit and vegetables has improved my mood and outlook on life. My skin has cleared up, my digestion is greatly improved (provided I combine foods properly), I scarcely need to use shampoo and have healthy, glowing hair, I have more energy and muscular endurance, clarity of mind and my weight has returned to normal (after being slightly underweight when I was sick).

The most profound change, however, is the empowering knowledge that I have healed myself naturally without any supplements, drugs or modalities. I now live according to the principles of the 80/10/10 diet and am working on improving my fitness and incorporating more sport into my lifestyle. I could not have had all this success without your guidance Dr. Dave, and I am eternally grateful for your work.

Best wishes to you.

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when I was 20. I remember how crushed I felt when the doctor told me there’s no cure, that I need to be screened for cancer every year and that it would be likely that I would need surgery in the next 10 years. I tried several medications, but the side effects were so horrible that I decided I would just rather deal with the pain. There were so many days that I skipped eating just so I could avoid a bowel movement. It was disabling both physically and mentally.

At some point I was told that not eating animal products could ease the pain. This sparked my curiosity. I searched “vegan ulcerative colitis” on Google and came to Dr. David Klein’s website. I was very skeptical. It was contrary to everything the specialists told me. However, after one too many weeks of being in agony, I didn’t care anymore and was willing to try anything.

At the time I was eating the Standard American Diet including lots of meat and cheese, refined grains and processed food with not very much fresh produce. I ordered and followed Dr. Klein’s Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s book and gradually incorporated healthful practices into my life and started feeling much better at a surprisingly fast rate.

After several weeks I was having normal, healthy bowel movements again. Eventually I became as fit as my former 16 year-old self. I felt better than I had in my entire life and am ever grateful.

Thank you so much, Dr. Klein!

Eight-year Mystery IBD Healed in Seven Weeks!

July, 2011

For about eight years I had an unknown colon condition that included inflammation. I tried many kinds of colon cleanses, enemas, implants and colonics that helped a little, but did not clear the condition. Then I had a tooth infection. My dentist said I needed antibiotics, which I normally don’t take. My body’s reaction to that severely increased the colon condition.

I knew that I needed help and fast. I had the good fortune of hearing Dr. David Klein on a web teleconference speaking about Healing the Gut and speaking about his book, Self Healing Colitis and Crohn’s. I felt immediately guided to buy and read the book and contacted Dr. Klein. He guided me with the Natural Hygiene Vegan Healing Diet Plan.

I had been on a vegan mostly raw diet for 16 years. While reading Dr. Klein’s book and while on his program I realized that I had been eating too many nuts, cooked oils and improper food combinations. Through Dr. Klein’s guidance I also went off herbal laxatives. After seven weeks on the Natural Hygiene Vegan Healing Diet Plan, the condition and symptoms were gone.

In gratitude,

Mary Saint-Marie

Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s Review

Dear Friend,

Please add a good review to Google Books for my Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s book if you can. There is only 1 bad review by someone saying it’s “extreme.” Yes it is! Health is extreme, and health is the one and only goal. Anything less than the total health plan in Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s will only perpetuate IBD illness and suffering. The only way to be free of colitis, Crohn’s and any other inflammatory bowel disease is to remove all of the causes of disease and to live a 100% healthful lifestyle. “Extreme health” is easy, liberating, wonderful and the normal and natural way we were meant to live.

For extreme health & happiness,

Dr. David Klein
